About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our home is a 3 Bedroom 2 Bath gorgeous home (all new furniture) with fans in all rooms, and central AC for those really 'hot' days.

It has an attractive full gourmet Kitchen, a full Dining Room, and a sunken Living Room with '66' TV and DVD. The Master Bedroom has a King Bed, Dresser, and TV.

Off of the Master Bedroom is a wonderful Master Bath with a large glass shower, twin sinks, and mirrors throughout. There are 2 Guest Bedrooms, one with 2 Twin Beds, and the other with a Full Bed. Both Guest Bedrooms have TVs.

There is a second full bath located next to both Guest Bedrooms. Attached to the home is a wonderful large screened in porch (lanai) that leads to a large fenced in backyard.

Our home is located 10 minutes north of Orlando's International Airport at Ventura Golf Resort. Ventura is a gated golf community and our property manager is a resident of Ventura who resides one block away from our home. She will provide keys, garage door opener, badges, and any property maintenance needs that you may require.

A championship 18 hole golf course is on the grounds. The home is conveniently located within 20-45 minutes from all attractions, beaches, and the Kennedy Space Center. It is also close to shopping, restaurants, etc.

Many folks have commented to us that our home's location is wonderful given it is away from all of the Orlando attractions, but yet close enough to be easily within 20-30 minutes from the house.

It is also nice to take Interstate 4 to Daytona Beach for a day of fun in the sun, where you can drive your car right out onto to the beach.

Master Bedroom has a King Bed, Dresser, and TV. A separate entrance leads to a spacious full master Bath with a large glassed-in shower, and a large sink area that includes two sinks, and mirrors behind all areas of the bathroom.

The 2 Guest Bedrooms are spacious, with a Double Bed in one and two Twin Beds in the other. Both Guest Bedrooms also have TVs. The second bath is located in the hallway just outside the entrances to both Guest Bedrooms

Master Bath has a separate entrance from the Master Bedroom. Spacious with a separate room with a toilet, a large glassed-in shower, a full walk-in closet, and twin sinks with wall to wall mirrors throughout.

The Hall Bath is located just outside both Guest Bedroom entrances, has a tub/shower, with a sink and mirror.

Why Alan Arnfield chose Ventura

Our home at Ventura Resort is perfect for many people. If you are looking to take in the Orlando area attractions, it is close enough to all of them, yet far enough away (max 30 min) to get away from the crowds. Our home is in a gated golf community, which affords security for you, as well as the convenience of being close by to restaurants and shopping. And finally, the grounds at Ventura Golf club are fabulous, and the golf course is immaculately maintained and a very good challenge for all golfers with a lot of water throughout the course. Our home is a single level home, and shows as very new. The previous owner spent a lot of money upgrading the floors, walls, kitchen, and yard.

What makes this house unique

Our property is in a warm weather area, which is fantastic for the winter months. We have also found that the summer months are no hotter and humid than the weather back in New York at the same time. Ventura is a fabulous place to walk, job, and bicycle in, with lavish vegetation, and miles of trails.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know how nice your house is. There are absolutely no problems. It is only a half hr. from my daughters and that is great. It is so peaceful here. I live in the pinelands of NJ, so our traffic is not as busy as yours, but I am getting used to it. Thank you for allowing us to rent here. Hope your weather in NY is as nice as it has been here in Florida. my kindest regards. Mary

Reviews

Orlando Vacation Home in Gated Community

VRBO Bear stayed here

Jul 25, 2011

I had a great time staying in this beautiful Orlando home located within 20-45 minutes of all the Orlando attractions. Situated in a warm, inviting community called Ventura Country Club which included resort like amenities. The exquisitely maintained golf course that welcomes you onto the property is a quiet place to unwind while I was on vacation. I made a decision to stop by the enormous pool for a quick dip and peered into a great looking restaurant and bar. I enjoyed the peaceful and extremely relaxing Ventura Country Club community. My favorite part of the house itself was the screened in patio overlooking the large backyard, where you could enjoy a quiet and shaded meal. The master bedroom and bathroom is massive and immaculately kept. This was one of the most comfortable houses I’ve had the opportunity to stay in during my travels. If you’re looking for a convenient location near all the attractions along with excellent amenities, I recommend this lovely home in a beautiful country club setting. The VRBO Bear

Great home with plenty of room!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this home several times because it is close to our daughter's college. It is also a great location for Disney parks too. The home is very comfortable and in a gated community. My little Yorkie loves the fenced backyard and taking walks in the community. She made many friends this visit😊 Alan is so wonderful to work with and always available if needed. Entry into the home is stress free as well. We will definitely be back again.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay near UCF to accommodate us while my son moved out of his dorm and in to his apartment. Since they are "homeless" between terms we looked for something nearby with space! This home was perfect. Alan was most helpful helping us prepare for our trip - and having the chance to meet him on a trip to Florida prior to our reserved time was a pleasure. Our two week stay was just what we needed and I would not hesitate to stay again! I'll be checking available dates again very soon!!

Beautiful Home and VERY gracious owners

  • 5 of 5

I live on a FL barrier island less than an hour east, but this home became my emergency mainland evacuation shelter for Hurricane Matthew. Previous hotel plans fell through at the last minute (do not count on hotels.com's filters -- especially for pets), so in desperation I went to VRBO.

Not only were the owners of this property understanding of my situation and quick to reply, but they checked on me regularly to see if my beach home had survived the storm.

This was probably my 10th VRBO home, and though I have never been dissatisfied with any, this Orlando home is definitely in my TOP 3. Beautiful, well-kept home in a very nice, safe gated neighborhood. Nice attached screened porch with a small doggie door and a great fenced in backyard. Double car garage with a door opener, too.

Although I lived in this East Orlando area a decade ago, and the demographics have greatly changed, I never felt unsafe outside of the community gates day or night. Knowing a bit of Spanish will definitely help.

Bottom line, I will not need this home for a vacation, but I will definitely book it early when I see impending hurricanes headed for my east coast beach home. Beautiful home and great, caring owners.

Thanks, Alan and your wife, for the great hospitality!

Ventura Country Club

  • 5 of 5

The Ventura Country Club home was perfect for our needs. Our son was getting married and we had relatives that stayed with us at the house for the wedding. Other guests were at airport hotels which were very close to the house. Located near the Orlando airport allowed us to easily pickup and return guests for their flights. The home had more updated amenities than we expected, and was very well decorated. I only got to play golf twice during the stay, bit the course was very nice. Our pets loved the large screed screened porch and never wanted to come in.

Owner's Response: Steve, Jenny and I are so happy that you found our home and Ventura in general a great place to stay for you son's wedding and your vacation. We hope that you can return again sometime and enjoy the great golf and surroundings more the next time. Alan and Jenny.
