Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I had the pleasure of staying at The Kokomo house for five nights in March and enjoyed the house immensely. The pool was perfect for all six of us and our little one year old grandson as it was extremely clean and warm. The house and outdoor lanai was perfect and large enough to handle our family gatherings for evening meals as it became the central hang out for the entire group - most of them were staying at The Swan/Dolphin resort near Epcot. Just a 15 minute drive to and from their hotel made it ideal for them to come over each night. The bedrooms were great - all the beds were very comfortable and the amenities and location were ideal for our vacation in Orlando. The gated community gave us a very secure feeling and the ease of getting around the area was a big plus. The other neat thing about the house was the near by Formosa Gardens shopping area (only a mile away) - we took advantage of a great Giordano's restaurant for some delicious carry-out and the Winn Dixie had everything we needed to stock the house with food and refreshments. I highly recommend The Kokomo for anyone needing a great house in Orlando. Thanks, JoAnne, for being so easy to work with and also for getting the crib into the house for our little guy - he had a great time as we all did.

Great place to stay. Perfect vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I, all 8 of us, have rented homes before in Florida. Nothing seems to compare to this home. This is my 3rd time in this house and every time we stay, we notice the care the owners put into the home. If you want to stay at a house that makes you feel like you are royalty then this is the one for you! When all 8 of us get together, sometimes you need some time alone and this house lets you have that. Extremely clean, modern and tastefully decorated. This house is close to all the attractions so going to and from the parks takes minutes. It is in a gated community, so even when we went for a nice walk I felt very safe. After all day at the park there is nothing like coming home having a couple of cocktails on the lanai and taking a dip in the pool. I love showing pictures of my vacation, everyone asks why do you leave the house everything you need is there. I also recommend Millers restaurant which is about a mile away. It was great bringing home the left overs and reheating everything in the very well stocked kitchen. You will no go wrong renting this house for your vacation.

Awesome Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family had the pleasure of staying at the Kokomo for a spring break vacation. The house is beautifully decorated and well maintained. The pool was clean and warm. We had 4 teenagers and 2 children who did not have time to get "bored", thanks in part to the wonderfully furnished game room and computer connection. The location could not be better. Formosa Gardens is a beautifully maintained community right outside of the DisneyWorld complex. The next time we visit Orlando, we will definitely try to stay again at the Kokomo! Thank you for sharing your wonderful vacation home.

Perfect family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Kokomo Vacation Villa, the home is beautiful with everything you could possible need or want for a wonderful vacation, the rooms are very specious and are very well maintained, the pool area is perfect for a relaxing day for when you need a break from all the parks which are only minuets away from the Kokomo. There is also a washer & dryer if needed, which was great to not have to over pack with heavy luggage. I would highly recommend staying at the Kokomo, you would not be disappointed.

Clean, modern, accommodating, and great location

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home was the ideal location for my family to enjoy our ten day vacation. We ordered a crib for the little one that was ready for us when we arrived. We also ordered a bigger grill that was there when we arrived that helped feed our big clan on days we relaxed by the pool. Disney, universal, and other attractions (such as Gator Land) are very close to the house. The outlets are also very close and are plentiful! The house was very clean and also had a high chair. We also used the booster seats that are there - this was a huge help when we picked up other family that visited that were staying in Disney. The kitchen is very modern and had plenty of plates, flatware, cups, and wine glasses! The bedrooms were tastefully decorated, clean, and the beds were comfortable. There were so many bathrooms that I did not want to come home and go back to sharing. My favorite part of the house was sitting outside in the morning in the screened in pool area with my tea and looking out at the beautiful landscaping with the perfect glimps of the lake. At night we even saw fireworks from the parks!

The Place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful Sun-kissed home has it all, great for all size families. We really enjoyed the pool area and was so nice to have spacious rooms to accommodate all of our party. The kitchen has plenty of counter space and cupboards with all your needs. The Disney parks are close and so are the grocery stores and outlets. The owner is so easy to deal with and is full of great information (driving to Airports and recommendations for delicious restaurants and things to do with small children ect.) and was quick to respond back to us. Looking forward to staying here again. Thank you for a perfect worry free family vacation! Highly recommend!

Fantastic family vacation house

  • 5 of 5

12 of us stayed at the Kokomo for 8 nights, and it was the best time ever. We were 8 adults and 4 teenagers, yet everyone had plenty of space to themselves and the home was a very comfortable place to relax at the end of a day at the parks. 4 bathrooms made it easy for everyone to get ready in the morning without a hassle, and the beautiful screened in pool area made it easy for everyone to relax and enjoy the weather at night. The game room was an immediate hit and held a couple of pool table tournaments as well. The house itself is wonderfully decorated but comfortable so that you immediately feel at home when you arrive. Everything was absolutely spotless from floor to ceiling. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware, etc, and it was a big money saver to come back for dinner (including a bbq at the pool), even returning to the parks some nights for the fireworks and shows. The house is so close to the parks that driving home and then returning later was a great option to have. There are tons of restaurants, grocery stores, souvenir shops, and other attractions near the house to break up your time at the parks and enjoy the area. As a side note, there are also several places nearby to rent electric scooters for those who need help getting around the parks a little easier. They delivered my dad's right to the house, picked it up at the end of our stay, and we didn't have to worry about what may or may not be available to rent at the park when we got there. All in all, we had a really great stay at the Kokomo. It was a home away from home, truly comfortable and pleasant to come back to at the end of a long day. We will definitely look forward to staying here on our next trip, and would recommend this house to others.
