Within a gated resort community only minutes from Disney World, you can discover a new standard of town home accommodation, designed for the more discriminating family that demands a higher standard of comfort and amenities.

One of the newer and most sought-after resorts in the area, Terra Verde is not your 'average' Orlando resort. You'll stay in a genuine town home, built by a traditional home builder, in an exclusive, award-winning resort. The high number of guests who decide to come back for a second or even a third stay, is a testimony to both the home and the resort.

This 2-storey unit comes with 3 upstairs bedrooms, 2 upstairs bathrooms, downstairs toilet/washroom, living area, dining area, full kitchen, laundry room and private patio with your own hot tub.

***Recently upgraded, plush NEW CARPETING throughout the sleeping areas, makes this home more inviting and comfortable than ever!***

Equipped with more than you need!: The home features a 43' HDTV with over 100 channels of digital cable, many in high-definition, free Netflix on the main TV, plus a TV in every bedroom. Full size, upgraded Whirlpool brand appliances: fridge-freezer with ice-maker, stove w/ flat ceramic cook top, dishwasher, built-in microwave. En-suite laundry room. Hotel-style safe. Private patio w/ hot tub.

Master bedroom has king bed and private bathroom, 2nd bedroom has queen bed, 3rd bedroom has 2 twin (single) beds, plus the downstairs sofa opens to a queen size sofa-bed.

Just about everything is provided for you, including a generous supply of towels, linens, chinaware, cookware, cutlery, utensils, glassware, coffeemaker, electric kettle (for our British guests), hairdryers in bathrooms.

For families with an infant: (1) folding metal crib, (1) high chair and a safety gate are provided at no extra charge.

High-speed wireless internet access is provided in the home at no extra charge, and unlimited free phone calls to the US/Canada/Puerto Rico.

Resort facilities galore!: The resort offers a fantastic club-house staffed by a friendly concierge service and is open daily to guests, along with an outdoor recreation area. Facilities include:

* Designer, lakeside swimming pool with zero-entry-depth walk-in shallow-end and crystal-clear water.

* Whirlpool.

* Bathroom facilities.

* Licensed poolside tiki bar offering beverages, light meals and snacks.

* Basketball and sand volleyball courts.

* Lounge with reading chairs, TV screens and free wireless Internet access.

* Fitness room with treadmills and exercise bikes.

For your peace-of-mind, this community is one of the few in the region to offer 24-hour monitored-entry access gates.

Your search is over!: So now you've stumbled across the area's nicest resort, book with us to ensure you stay in one of this resort's best-decorated and best-maintained town homes. We use a professional, local management company and are also Florida residents ourselves, maintaining regular oversight of the home to ensure everything is in perfect condition for your arrival.

About Andy and Theresa Dent

We are Andy and Tess, husband-and-wife owners of this Terra Verde town tome. We have been full-time Florida residents for the past 20 years.

Andy grew up in England before immigrating to North America in 1991, first to Canada for a spell, and has resided in the US for the past 23 years.

Tess grew up in the Philippines before immigrating to Canada in 1987 and then to Florida in 1996. Tess takes great pride in our own South Florida home and equally in our Terra Verde property, and has a passion for organization, neatness and cleanliness.

Between the two of us with our diverse backgrounds, we are able to relate well to our guests who also come from many different nationalities.

Andy and Theresa Dent purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Andy and Theresa Dent chose Terra Verde Resort

We bought the vacation rental in this location partly so we could have the benefit of personally using it. Terra Verde was a natural choice of resort as its beautiful design, architecture and landscaping makes it stand apart from so many of the Kissimmee area resorts.

What makes this townhome unique

Our guests take much comfort in the fact that the owners live within driving distance of the home and are easily reachable if ever there is an issue or concern.

In contrast, the majority of vacation homes in the Orlando area are owned by 'absentee owners' and investors, including many who live overseas. Obviously such owners find it difficult to maintain much (if any) personal oversight of their properties, often trusting them entirely to property management companies.

We have a great deal of involvement in the upkeep and maintenance of our property, and devote a lot of personal time to deep cleaning, and adding personal touches. We like to think that it shows, especially in the details. We do use a trusted management company for routine cleaning, routine maintenance, inspections and any urgent guest issues that may arise. We feel we have an optimum blend of personal property oversight, complemented by professional service providers, that results in our guests being pleased with their choice to book with us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great stay for Disney!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived early and had a slight issue with the door code when it was checkin time, but the owners were very responsive and got the code sorted out quickly. House was just the right size for our crew of 2 adults and 5 children.

Beds were comfortable, hot tub worked, kitchen had plenty of supplies. Location was pretty convenient to Disney, for not staying on the resort, and the pool and food/drink cabana worked out great for us!

Would definitely stay here again!

Everything we hoped for - comfortable, clean, cozy

  • 5 of 5

We agree with all the other positive reviews! This was the perfect spot for our extended family to stay while in town for a family reunion. We enjoyed relaxing with our coffee on the patio in the morning, and appreciated the fully equipped kitchen, extra towels and linens, and games, magazines and movies. We didn’t have much time for all the pool and clubhouse activities, but nice to know it was there. All in all, great place with nice decor, clean, safe, comfortable, and good value.

Lovely property, great home owners!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! The house was exactly as advertised, well maintained, lovely and clean. Very short drive to all the Disney parks. The home owners sent a package with all the house info and instructions prior to arrival which made arrival and departure very easy. I've stayed at Terra Verde in other rentals before and Andy and Tess provided the best instructions for the hot tub I've ever seen! Our flights were affected by hurricane Irma and our departure date changed a few times. Andy was great, stayed in touch and then refunded the nights we missed. We certainly hadn't expected a refund as a hurricane is not something that Andy had any control over. Just shows what great people you will be renting from. I will be recommending this property to all my friends and family travelling to the Kissimmee/Orlando area in the future!
