Jabba the House is the new name for this house which we are in the process of redecorating with a Star Wars theme throughout the entire house! Jabba the House is a beautiful vacation rental home 5 minutes from Walt Disney World in Kissimmee, Florida. It has 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, including 2 master suites. This spacious villa sleeps 8 people in total comfort. The great room boasts a large, combined living and dining area which is open to the nearby kitchen and breakfast nook. The southern facing swimming pool with attached spa sits on a private pool deck surrounded by a screen enclosure and a privacy fence. No vacation home is complete without a game room and this one is no exception, featuring a pool table and foosball table. Let’s explore all the amenities in more detail!

After location, one of the most commonly prized amenities is the pool, and Jabba the House has a great one! This spacious pool deck offers plenty of room to relax around this large southern facing pool with attached hot tub. No walking out of the house and falling into the pool here! A southern facing pool is desirable for the most sunshine on the pool throughout the day, but if it gets too hot, sip on a drink at the table and chairs located in the covered lanai. If it’s cooler, enjoy a soak in the hot tub. This unique, level-bottom hot tub makes a nice kiddie pool when the jets are off. Of the 3 exits from the house into the lanai, one is from the master bathroom, so no need to walk through the house with wet feet when nature calls. The screen enclosure covering the pool deck keeps out the bugs and lizards, while the privacy fence keeps out the prying eyes of neighbors. If you have little ones, the pool alarms on all doors and the removable toddler fence provide a safer and more relaxing experience for all. If you are visiting in the cooler months or just want to make use of the hot tub, pool and spa heat is available for an additional charge of $25 per night.
The inside of Jabba the House is even more spectacular than the outside! Upon entering the villa, you pass through a small hallway lined with Star Wars pictures and posters before emerging into the open and bright great room. The skylights in the great room and kitchen make it hard to tell if lights are on or off during the day. The formal dining table has seating for six persons while the breakfast nook off the kitchen has seating for another four persons. There are also an additional two bar stools for seating at the kitchen counter. The family room has a brand new, L-shaped, black leather couch accompanied by a futuristic lamp to accent the new look. A new chrome and glass dining room table, breakfast nook table and accent tables along with chrome and black leather chairs are on their way and should be in place by late September of 2018. The 50-inch flat-screen TV has been wall-mounted over a new floating, black entertainment shelf and yes, you may play with the Star Wars figures on the shelves above the TV! The entertainment shelf houses a new Xbox One gaming system along with some games and movies for your enjoyment. Of course all the TV’s in the house have free cable TV. The bright kitchen has a side-by-side refrigerator with filtered water and ice, a dishwasher, range and microwave. The kitchen is of course fully equipped with everything you need to prepare gourmet meals or easy lunches to take with you. There is also plenty of plastic-ware for use by the pool. The 14-cup coffer maker is accompanied by a stocked, coffee caddy, so if you arrive late at night, your first pot the next morning is on us!
Off the right side the main living area of Jabba the house is the master suite. The master suite features a king-sized bed with a brand-new mattress, walk-in closet, and a 40-inch, wall-mounted, flat-screen TV. The master bath is a full bath with two sinks, a huge garden tub and a huge shower. The is also a door to the pool deck from the master bath, so you don’t have to walk through the house with wet feet coming from the pool when nature calls! Off the left side of the great room is the queen bedroom. The queen bedroom has a queen-sized bed, closet and wall-mounted, 32-inch, flat-screen TV. The full bathroom just outside the queen bedroom can be shared or used just for the queen room making it just as good as a suite. Off the right side of the main entry hall are the two twin bedrooms and shared bath. The first twin bedroom has been completely remodeled with Star Wars bedding and matching decor. The shared, full bathroom has also been remodeled with Star Wars decor. The second twin bedroom has a lovely animal theme now but will soon also be remodeled as a Star Wars bedroom as well.
Opposite the twin bedrooms off the main hallway is the game room. Jabba the House has a newly remodeled game room decorated with…you guessed it Star Wars decor! The game room features a pool table and Foosball table surrounded by all the Star Wars movie posters!
In addition to all the fun stuff, Jabba the House is equipped with all the necessities you may need for your family vacation. There are a washer and a dryer located off the main entry hall stocked with over-sized pool towels and complimentary laundry detergent. The house is stocked with at least one roll of paper towels and one roll of toilet paper in each bathroom as well as a small soap in each bathroom. We provide kitchen garbage bags, dishwasher tablets, laundry soap and coffee filters. For those with younger family members, there is a pack-n-play. We love to host families, so if there is something missing, just ask us, and we will consider purchasing it for the house!
The final amenity of this house to consider is the dedicated new ownership. We acquired this house in July of 2018. We were lucky to get it! The previous owner was great, and the house is kept beautifully. This is the fifth house we have purchased in the area and we have near perfect reviews on all of our houses. Our business philosophy is simple: provide an impeccably clean house, constantly be upgrading the house and provide the best customer service possible! Below is a list of some of the upgrades we have done since taking over.
