Why Terry Biddulph chose Kissimmee

We purchased this home because of it's proximity to all things Disney, we are a little over 8 miles from downtown disney. We also love the rural setting of home, whilst it is on a small sub-division of around 80 houses it is intensely private with wonderful views over open countryside at the rear of the property. We are short half mile walk from Shingle Creek Park, which is a developing nature reserve full of wild life such as wild deer, hawks, eagles and a vast array of exotic birds.

We love the tranquility of home - we have wonderful neighbours who all live here full time. Thats is one of the attractions of our sub-divsion: very few rental homes, so peace and quiet is ensured at all times.

What makes this villa unique

Each morning when we are here we take a relaxing 3 mile walk around Shingle Creek Park which runs across the back of our home - this is unique in this part of Kissimmee. Depending on guests and circumstances a visit to Disney Workd is required! A short 20 minute drive gets you to the Disney Gate or Downtoen Disney and Islands of Adventure. We a re a short drive from International Drive, the hub of the tourist uiverse. We a re a short drive from Downtown Kissimmee with its modern and stylish bars and restaurants, a little further takes your to St Cloud with its wonderful Lakes and boating charter facilities.

We are:

7.5 Miles from Downtown Disney

12.5 from Magic Kingdom

10 Miles from Sea World

13.5 Miles to Universal Studios

8.0 Miles to Epcot

11 Miles to Animal Kingdom

8.0 Miles to Typhoon Lagoon

37 Miles LegoLand - Winter Haven

Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed at this villa for our 3 week holiday in Jul/Aug. We have stayed on Cumbrian Lakes before several times and totally love its safe gated community feel. This was our first time at this villa but won't be our last. From the first contact the owner was very helpful and this villa suited us perfectly.



1. Location - close to 192 which has everything you need and is a direct route to Disney (10mins away)

2. Pool deck location - Gets sun all day until nearly 8pm - but with plenty of shade also. Best of both worlds. Also has a nice clean outdoor toilet. The pool next door does initially look close but we never had a problem - everyone in this little community seems like minded each time we have stayed on Cumbrian Lakes, and with so much to do, it is rare that you would be using the outdoor areas at the same time.

3. Cumbrian Lakes is a gated community and has a lovely feel to the place - always felt very safe.

4. Well maintained and great management company should there be any issues with anything - although we had 1 small issue the owner in England handled it immediately before the management company!

5. All on one level which was perfect for us and our young children - there are 4 bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms - there was only 4 of us, but we loved the size.



The decor is the same as most villas on Cumbrian Lakes - plain, clean, bright and airy.



We found this a perfect place to relax in between the madness that can be Florida in the summer! We loved our time here and will definitely return.

You will enjoy relaxing by the beautiful outdoor pool.

VRBO Bear stayed here

Sep 9, 2017

While in the family-friendly destination of Orlando, Florida, this bear family was treated to a wonderful stay at this villa in Whispering Oaks. There was plenty of space for our family to spread out and enjoy our vacation. Each bear cub enjoyed having their own room with a TV all to themselves. The master bathroom has a newly remodeled shower that proved to be most relaxing! The kitchen is ideal for families to eat together and avoid having to eat out for every meal. The whole family marveled at the beautiful décor of the house and how comfortable we felt here. The family-favorite was the outdoor pool and hot tub. We spent many hours frolicking in the warm water enjoying the privacy of the backyard! The major theme parks are a short drive away as are all the other Orlando attractions, shopping and grocery stores. Thank you to Terry, the owner, for making our vacation a memorable and relaxing one!

Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th time we have stayed at this property as we love it so much. The location is perfect and we really like that it is not situated on an estate of holiday rentals, but on a residential street in Kissimmee. It feels very much like a home from home due to the fact that is someone's personal holiday home. The furnishings are lovely and it really has everything that anyone need for a stay here. The house was immaculate on arrival, as always, there are always updates when we arrive so the house is beautifully looked after. I honestly cannot recommend this property highly enough and we will definitely be returning again.

Great house in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

close to shops and the major traffic routes to all the parks. Terry was very helpful and offered plenty of help and tips for things to do. The house is well-equipped and very family-friendly with a very nice pool and out-door area. Would definitely recommend staying here if you need a nice house in a quiet area that are close to all the Orlando attractions.

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your house! We had to restart the router a few times, other than that everything was great and we really had a wonderful time there. The kids were big fans of the pool and all the toys and there was everything we needed.

A great villa, providing everything we needed for a great holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The villa delivered all that it promised and ticked all the boxes for location, content, cleanliness and comfort. The pool and hot tub were great and the liana was a good place to watch the local wildlife. Terry the homeowner was easy and reliable to contact whenever we needed to ask a question.

The villa is well located for the the theme parks, local supermarkets and restaurants.

Thanks Terry, we had a great holiday.
