About Tony Mountford

We have been sharing our property through HomeAway and VRBO since 2008. My wife and I are big fans of Disney World, and the warm weather Florida offers in winter months.

I was born in England. My wife was born in Canada, with lineage to Scotland and the first European settlers of the American Colonies.

We live in Canada and travel to and from Florida by car. It's a 1200 mile journey to get there and no less to get home. We've made the trip so many times it's almost routine.

Tony Mountford purchased this condo in 1999

Why Tony Mountford chose Kissimmee

Between 1986 and 1999, our kids were young and we stayed in Disney World every March Break. One day my wife asked why we had never purchased in the area. I told her we were on vacation and the weather was too good to waste a day with a real estate salesman. The next day, it rained so the hunt for a great property began.

We tried other parts of Florida, but kept coming back to Orlando for the youthfulness, diversity of entertainment and ease of access. From our location, most parts of Florida are a day trip. A network of highways, designed to bring people into Disney World, gives us easy access to the state.

While you are here, you can stay in this gated community or wander miles of quiet residential streets. Our neighborhood is a secure friendly environment where travelers and residents share the sidewalks and restaurants. At the pool, families from around the world meet and share stories of their adventures.

Our trips to Florida were always a special time. Vacations are one of the few times families spend entire days together, eating, talking, sharing experiences and creating memories.

By sharing our property we hope you are able to make some memories of your own.

What makes this condo unique

As a guest, you have 24/7 front desk emergency service. If they don't answer, it's backed up with my personal 800 number that is always turned on. When unexpected events change your plans, free international calling keeps you in touch with your family at home. Noisy neighbors or failed air conditioning are not a problem. If we can't make it right, the hosting service we pay for, can offer you substitute accommodations.

Our Florida (Disney) Family Adventure

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? I guess I really can’t say enough about this awesome rental. Let me start off by saying that this was our first time renting a vacation property. I literally searched and read thru almost a hundred properties before we ultimately decided to go with this one. We were overwhelmingly satisfied that we decided to stay in a vacation rental versus a hotel. We surprised our kids with a Disney trip, but we were just as surprised with this property. It was clean, and the beds were extremely comfortable. There was little to any outside noise or disturbances from the surrounding neighbors. I felt that the property was safe and well kept. Also, it was also such a convenience to be able to wash up all clothes before we headed back home. We even wanted to stay an additional day, but the property was already booked for the next guest. Another plus…this property is so close to Disney. I’m surprised we were not able to see the fireworks from the property. It took us less than ten minutes each day to get to the park. The location was central to everything we needed: well-known and local restaurants, Super Target, gas stations, etc...

This was overall a pleasurable and easy experience. There was not one glitch along the way. We are even thinking about coming back next year and this property is at the top of the list when we come back to town. Many thanks to you!

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

From the first confirmation, Tony has been very attentive, sending us an attachment full of directions on how to get to the resort and how from the different airports, once inside the house everything was wonderful, it is the second time that with the family we have come to Orlando and Tony's attention makes everything special, the house is complete, has all the comforts that a family needs to spend beautiful vacations. The complex is beautiful and very quiet, 2 pools, club house, ideal to rest, we stayed in January 2018, the weather was very rare, very low temperatures (-1 Cº or 28 Fº), unfortunately the pools we could not enjoy but, the heating of the house is spectacular kept the ambintes warm all day, the water too, to bathe and replenish energies for another day. The location is very good at 10 min from Disney and 30 min from Universal, also from the shopings, between 15 and 30 min, very close to a P: ublix, a Wallgreens and a Wallmart. Who is thinking of renting a place to spend an excellent vacation without paying too mucht for a rent, do not hesitate, THIS IS THE PLACE !!!!.////

Desde la primera confirmacion, Tony ha sido muy atento, al enviarnos un adjuntos lleno de indicaciones de como llegar al complejo y como desde los diferentes aeropuertos, una vez dentro de la casa todo fue maravilloso, es la segunda vez que con la familia venimos a Orlando y la atencion que brindo Tony hace que todo sea especial, la casa es completa, tiene todas las comodidades que una familia necesita para pasar unas vaciones hermosas. El complejo es hermoso y muy tranquilo,2 piletas, club house, ideal para descanzar, nosotros nos hospedamos en enero 2018, el tiempo fue muy raro, temperaturas muy bajas ( -1 Cº o 28 Fº),lamentablemente las piletas no las pudimos disfrutar pero, la calefaccion de la casa es espectacular mantuvo los ambintes calentitos todo el dia, el agua tambien, para bañarse y reponer energias para otro dia. La ubicacion es muy buena a 10 min de Disney y 30 min de Universal, tambien de los shopings, entre 15 y 30 min, muy cerca un P:ublix, un Wallgreens y un Wallmart. Quien este pensando en alquilar un lugara donde pasar unas excelentes vacaciones sin tener pagar exesivamente por un alquiler, No lo duden, ESTE ES EL LUGAR!!!!.

Owner's Response: Thank-you for your kind words. One of the things that makes our area so popular is, even when the weather is disappointing, there are so many things to do. Entertainment for adults and children runs all year. As we only have one property, every reservation is unique and gets our full attention. We were very happy to have you and your family stay in our property. Tony

Cozy home for visiting the parks and universal studios

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here for 5 nights while visiting with family. We were 6 of us and this home fit us all comfortably. Nice kitchen with required dishes and utensils. Warm cozy living room where we could hang out and chat after hectic day at the park.

A great place to stay for our Disney vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at “Beauty and the Best.” Tony, the owner, was very kind and went out of his way to help me during the booking process. Upon arrival we found the condo to be spacious, neat and most importantly, clean! We loved the Disney decor. My four year old twins were thrilled with their Mickey themed room. Overall, a great place to relax and unwind after long days in the parks. The only issue we had is that the mattresses need to be replaced. If the mattresses were replaced, I would definitely book this property time and time again. Thank you!

Owner's Response: We are happy to accept the praise and glad you enjoyed your stay. We are currently communicating with past and current guests to determine what the problem is with the mattresses. The king and queen mattresses are new but obviously a disappointment for this guest

Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved everything about my stay at this property. It was a breeze to book, constantly was in touch with the owner, and so easy to find. The location could not be more perfect and the villa couldn't have been more accommodating. If available I plan to always try to book this place first. It definitely deserves more than five stars. Thank you Tony!!

Owner's Response: Thank-you. I'm glad you had a good time with your friends, and that our property met your expectations. Many first time users of this web site see thousands of properties and have difficulty choosing, or even trusting the process. I'm sure your comments, and those of our other guests, will assure them they can book with confidence. Again, thank-you. Tony

Great location. Perfect home away from home. Great price.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for 10 nights and enjoyed every moment. We were conveniently located near Disney, Universal, the expressway, Publix and a multitude of restaurants.

The owner Tony was very easy to work with. He responded quickly during the rental process and after our arrival responded quickly to our questions.

The pool was right across from our condo, which the kids loved. The kids also enjoyed the way the bedrooms were decorated. Additional highlights: washer and dryer, coded entry so we did not need a key, kitchen well stocked with pots, pans, dishes etc., and good selection of television channels. The three bedrooms allowed my family to spread out and give each other space after a busy day.

We would definitely visit this rental again.

Kissimmee, FL

This area is famous for its theme parks, golf and shopping. Most families are here to visit the 4 major theme parks in Disney World, but stay longer to include some of the other world famous attractions.

Universal Orlando has become one of the hottest attraction with The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

SeaWorld, famous for its Swim with the Dolphins experience, and Universal have teamed up to offer ticket packages that make them the best value it the state of Florida.

Don't forget the purely Florida attractions. Gatorland and the Kennedy Space Center cannot be experienced anywhere else in the world.

What's so hot about our location? Quick access to anywhere in the state. Like motor racing? Daytona Beach is a day trip. Like Baseball? Spring training brings Major League Baseball to the local stadiums at prices any family can afford.

That's just some of the big stuff that attract guests to this area. Most short stay guests find they can only focus on one thing and go home exhausted. Guests staying longer experience more things and have the time to enjoy them.

Golf has the highest profile, but the climate supports an outdoor lifestyle. Florida has spectacular private and public gardens. Walking and riding trails are common and many athletes extend their training season by spending weeks or months in the area.
