About Erica MacKinnon

We have a family owned business that our father started in 1970. It is a water well drilling/ water pumps/ geothermal sales and service business.

We live in our hometown, Pembroke, on Canada.

Canada is a beautiful country, but it is nice to escape to our Florida home for a few weeks in the winter months!

Erica MacKinnon purchased this house in 2012

Why Erica MacKinnon chose Orange Tree

We both have young families and wanted to purchase a holiday home near Orlando, FL that would be close to attractions and shopping. We also knew that we wanted a South or West Facing pool area to get the optimal sun until the end of the day! It took us over a year to find a subdivision and home that we were happy and felt safe in. Our families have made wonderful memories already and we look forward to spending more holidays in Florida!!

What makes this house unique

One unique benefit with our villa is that you can see the glow of the Disney Fireworks everynight standing on the front doorstep! You can also pick oranges every morning from nearby trees!

This house was awesome to be in. We had everything we needed and more. Loved that we had two masters with each having king size beds. There was four adults and two teens, so there was more then enough space for all of us. We loved the pool and the hot tub was great. I also loved the name of the home "Serendipity ". The home is excellent in my book and I truly recommend it to any family. It's also close to all the parks, but not so close that we were overwhelmed with noise. We all loved it. We appreciate the home owners for letting us rent their home.

Our stay was amazing! We enjoyed the pool and hot tub so much, the kids preferred it more than hanging out at the amusement parks!!

I would suggest a keyless entry for the house instead of the key being in a key box. That way there is only a code needed to open the door to make it a little easier for those late night outtings. And ceiling fans in each room to help the a/c out a bit since the thermostat is locked not to go under 70 degrees. Some days are hotter than most and in the house got really warm (when the sun was really out and kicking) even though the air was on, which kept it running for a longer time. And the toilet flaps needs to be changed (main mstr bdrm and hall bthrm) toilet keeps running after a flush, a light few taps on the handle would stop it....nothing major.

Otherwise, we loved our stay and would love to stay here again, hopefully soon! This is the best vacation we ever had! The privacy and comfort of our home away from home. Thank you sooo sooo much.

Lovely home perfect for a family get away

  • 4 of 5

The house had an amazing layout and a gorgeous pool. We spent one whole day just enjoying ourselves in the pool. It was close enough to Disney to make a trip to the park easy! The bedrooms were huge and the master bath was delightful. Thank you for a great stay!

Beautiful home in perfect a location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a perfect location. Being able to soak in the hot tub after a long day at Disney was nice. It's only 15min from Disney World ! The New Year celebration at Epcot was amazing ! Erica was very helpful & made the booking process easy. We will definitely stay again in the future!

Fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are fortunate enough to have been to Orlando a few times, always staying in a villa, as for us its home from home—we can travel light, doing washing using the property's washer and dryer. Serendipity did not disappoint. Everything was perfect from start to finish. The weather was amazing and the oversized pool was a bonus for us. The bedrooms were huge and well furnished. The kitchen had everything that we could possibly need. The living area had a great sized TV—we could watch the Olympic Games on the evenings that we were in and were feeling exhausted from a strenuous day at the parks.

The property is ideally situated, with a short drive to Walmart or Publix —and also Paramount emergency medical centre, which unfortunately I did have to use, and whose services were excellent.

An equally 'short' drive along highway 27, the 192 and then I4 and we were at the theme parks, water parks or shopping malls and outlets.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa. Erica, the owner, was a pleasure to arrange our stay with, and kept in close contact, answering questions and providing information.

Needless to say, I now have post-holiday blues.
