About Derek Houghton

With my wife Julie we have been visiting Florida particularly the Disney area for the last 20 years, we just love the place and of course the 'SUN' We decided to buy a place of our own rather than carry on renting which we did in 2009, having rented we know what the guest expect and need so with that in mind that's exactly what we supply to our guests, luxury living at affordable prices.

Derek Houghton purchased this house in 2009

Why Derek Houghton chose Kissimmee

Oak Island Harbor community is a community that is known and appreciated for its convenient location in the prestigious Formosa Gardens area. Upscale private pool homes in a spectacular and peaceful setting yet close to where everything is going on.

If you are vacationing in Central Florida for the fabulous weather as well as visiting all the world famous theme parks, then this is the villa for you. The house has one of the nicest settings imaginable with the back lawn running down to the waters edge of the private lake that this community is built around. The generous pool deck gives you uninterrupted exposure to the Florida sunshine all day long. Then in the evening enjoy the spectacular sunsets and the nightly glow of the firework display from the nearby Disney Park while you relax in the lanai or soak in our relaxing spa.

The lake is also visited by a variety of Florida wildlife including Herons, Cranes etc, the lake is also stocked with a variety of fish, so if you are feeling lucky, grab a pole from the games room and try it out.

What makes this house unique

Just a 2 minute drive from the villa, guests will find the famous highway 192 – and the Formosa Gardens shopping plaza and eateries. Some of the best known restaurants are located at Formosa Gardens, with an Outback Steak House, Red Lobster, TGI Fridays, Buffalos Wild Wings, Giordano’s Chicago Pizza restaurant, Carabba’s Italian, Cracker Barrel, Chinese, Subway and Taco Bell takeaways, as well as shops, a Winn Dixie supermarket, and much much more.

We arrived on the Friday after a long flight and check in, we got to the Villa and it took our breath away. We loved every minute there and it made our honeymoon. The villa is stunning in every way, from the bedrooms, to the bathroom, to the kitchen and the lounge. Having not been to America for a while we were slightly blind and Derek had kindly left us information about local resources such as restaurants and shops. After a long day at the parks it was perfect to come back and sit in the jacuzzi looking across the lake and watching the sun go down. The location of the villa is perfect, so close to Disney etc and lovely restaurants only down the road. We would definitely recommend this place to our family and friends and we certainly be returning. Thank you Derek also for lending my husband your fishing rod - he made good use of it and it was very pleased. Thank you again for letting us stay, we had a fantastic time.

Beautiful home...

  • 5 of 5

Derek and Julie were a pleasure to work with from the time we booked and all through out our stay. Their home was everything we needed to enjoy our stay in Florida. We came down for the AAU Nationals volleyball tournament and it was so nice to come back to a house and swim in our own pool rather than be stuck in a hotel . Our four girls and my mother in law all had their own space and the kids LOVED the game area and learned how to play pool, foosball and air hockey!

We will definitely book with Derek and Julie again in the future!

Thanks again!

Great holiday

  • 4 of 5

The villa is in a perfect location and the views towards the back of the property are stunning it was the perfect retreat after a long day at the Disney parks to come back and relax around the pool and get the added bonus of being able to see the fireworks go off in the evening, would definitely recommend this villa to family and friends.

Wonderful stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this vacation rental. It was wonderful. The pool was divine and the view amazing. We loved the fountain and the view of the fireworks. The house was very clean. No dirt or bugs detected. There was plenty of towels and the homeowners thought of everything. The neighborhood was safe and secure. We've rented several homes in the area and we were most impressed with this one.

Great home close to Disney

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this nice home with private pool and hot tub. It only took a few minutes to get to Disney parks each day. We even saw fireworks from the back yard one night. Overall, I would recommend this house!

Good Value

  • 4 of 5

VERY NICE place for the money. Pool was great as were the fireworks every night! Clean and well laid out. The only negative is the alarm that goes off when entering the pool area from inside to protect children, we had none, but its a state law so no way around it. The a/c could get a little cooler for my tastes but apparently if it is lowered below the 72 minimum setting it will freeze up. Met several of the neighbors who were all very nice. One even caught a 7 pound blue gill in the adjacent lake. I'd go back again.
