Property description

One note regarding the guests who complained about the bedbugs: We received notice from the guest about the possible infestation with bedbugs. We immediately dispatched our pest control company that regularly treats and monitors the property. They went out the very next morning (hours after the guest complaint) and checked all the fabrics in the house, all the beds, mattresses pillows and such for any bug infestation whatsoever. We had no bedbugs!!! Not a single one. I (Malte Strauss, Property Manager) went to the house and checked on everything myself for over an hour to be on the safe side and all I found were a few feathers from the pillows. Not a singly bug, whatsoever. We had the pest control company treat the property with an additional spray for preventive bug control in addition to the regular scheduled treatments we do quarterly. Also I wanted to note that these guests started to complain about everything and anything in the house from day one. I offered a full refund on the remaining days so that they could find a property to better suit them. They declined the Resolution I offered them and wanted to stay in the house, but wanted me to refund half of the rental payment. As a last strategy they came up with fictitious bedbugs. I declined to give in to this strategy. This had cost us extra money for a needles service call. I have asked them not to book with us ever again. That's why they gave us a bad review. We take pride in a clean house and providing accommodations superior to many of the typical vacation homes.

Villa Forresta, a designated rental vacation home, was redesigned in 2012 by Helene Bonello-Strauss in a modern but casual and comfortable style. The neutral color palette and the soft fabrics provide a balanced contrast to the ethnic elements like the hand carved Indonesian screens and the Asian artifacts.

This vacation retreat not far from the theme parks like Epcot Center, Animal Kingdom and Sea World and Universal Studios is located also in convenient distance to the Orlando International Airport. Shopping and restaurants are nearby and the Mall of Milennia as well as the Prime Outlet Malls are only minutes away.

The Accommodations:

With three bedrooms Villa Forresta offers luxurious accommodations for up to 6 guests. The master suite and the junior master features a king bed while the third bedroom offers two single beds. This vacation villa has been completely refurbished with high quality furniture, high end bedding and stainless steel appliances in 2012. The new tile floor with oversize 24 inch ceramic tile unifies the living room and wet areas. The bedrooms feature new wall to wall carpets in a color called “Toffee” accommodates the color scheme in neutrals and warm tones. The design inspiration is eclectic with some Asian influences and is designed to provide a soothing environment for the guests and owners during their stay.

It is worth mentioning that we have a fully equipped kitchen with china, silverware, pots and pans and all that one might need in a home away from home. The refrigerator dispense filtered water and ice through the door. The stove has a glass top and there is a microwave above the stove. The dining space in the kitchen is ideal for a quick breakfast or full dinner servings alike. Enjoy luxury with spacious granite counters or the stainless steel appliances in a more than generously sized kitchen.

The Bedrooms and Baths:
One thing we had in mind when re-inventing this vacation retreat is comfort. We chose beds without a foot board to accommodate tall guests and give plenty of legroom. The beds have all high quality mattresses that are by far superior of what guest find in the vast majority of vacation homes. We feel without a good night sleep a vacation is not what it ought to be. We want you to be rested and refreshed when you stay at Villa Forresta. All bedrooms have their own wall mounted TV so that you can watch your favorite shows or news without conflict over the Program. The Master bedroom has its on-suite bath with dual vanities, a separate soaking tub and walk in shower. The Head is enclosed for privacy and guests find a large walk in closet that has plenty of space for your belongings. We have also transformed the master bath with vessel sinks on granite counters. The second Junior master has a King size bed with a luxurious oversized headboard. The hallway bathroom that is shared with the third bedroom underwent the most drastic transformation. We have installed a new bathtub shower combination that had been outfitted with custom copper shine tiles and glass mosaic tiles in a unique vertical pattern. The free standing cabinet with a modern porcelain top leaves the bathroom feeling open and spacious while providing at the same time needed storage space.

While you are away from home and work we do not want Guests to be disconnected from the world. One will find a large flat screen TV in the living room with Brighthouse cable connection. While the bedroom TV are fed with the basic cable lineup which features over 70 channels, the living room TV has a digital cable box that provides the extended basic cable lineup with music channels HD Channel lineup and more. We also have wireless high speed internet connection at the house for your use at no extra cost. The phone provides unlimited free long distance calls in the US and Canada. We provide a toll free number where guest can also make free calls to landlines in many countries all over the world. For the rare instances where the phone plan does not allow for free calls you can use any typical phone calling cards to complete phone calls worldwide. Those cards are sold at grocery stores and gas stations in the area. We also have a docking station for an ipod so guests can listen to their favorite tunes.

There are many vacation homes that are furnished inexpensively, are equipped with the bare minimum and have tired and worn out linens. This is not one of them. We have taken a decisive effort to provide world class accommodations in an unlikely place. Bring up to 6 guest and have your own house for less than one comparable hotel room. We thrive to prove that it is possible to provide tremendous value and high quality accommodations at the same time. We dare you to find something nicer at this budget.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: We are a professional property management company. We (Helen Bonello-Strauss and Malte Strauss) are both fully licensed real estate agents and assist travelers and homeowners alike. We both grew up in Germany and spend most of our adult life in Wiesdaden before moving in 2000 to our favorite vacation spot Central Florida.

Why Eagle Pointe, Eagle Pointe South, Kissimmee, FL, USA:
This property is unique in the way it is furnished and renovated. There are higher end finishes in this property than most other vacation homes. Florida living should be comfortable and relaxing but on the same side can be elegant and stylish. This home provides high end bedding and all the amenities one might expect from home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The private screened in pool is south facing without a rear neighbor. Instead of looking at a row of houses one has relaxing views of a natural preserve. This setting is really quiet, away from busy streets with the opportunity to listen to the occasional Nightingale or some subtropical birds that might stop by. The House offers Cable TV in all the bedrooms and a larger LCD TV in the living room with digital cable setup. High speed wireless internet is included the same way as there is complementary long distance phone service within the US and Canada.
