Chatham Park is located just off the main US 192 in Kissimmee and is very close to all the local attractions and amenities.
Despite being an older community, Chatham Park does benefit from certain features that you do not find in the newer homes, such as a larger swimming pool for instance.
Desiree's Cottage is a very spacious home for a 3 bedroom property and the community is not without facilities. There are tennis courts in Chatham Park as well as a playground for children, and a bike path for cyclists. There is also a community swimming pool on site and it is a very quiet community for those who like to relax!.
The view from this home looks over the Chatham Park play area and it is very tranquil. Walt Disney World is only about 5 miles away, Universal 20 minutes away, Sea World about 15 minutes, and Kennedy Space Center just over an hour away. In the other direction Clearwater Beach is about a 90 minute drive and a host of local restaurants and shops are nearby, so Chatham Park does have a pretty good location, and plenty going for it.
Desiree's Cottage, (formerly Park Forest) is nicely furnished though the taste will probably suit more mature clients. There are many pictures and ornaments in the home that do give it a warm, and homely feel, hence the name. The home sleeps 8 people comfortably but we do try to limit the numbers to 6 to preserve the integrity of the home.
We have to stress to our clients that this home is an older property and is priced very much for those on a budget. The owner wanted to give all families a chance to enjoy a Florida pool home for a reasonable price and this gesture has been very well received by the large number of families who have stayed here over the years, and returned time and time again.
Despite it being an older home though, Desiree's Cottage is not without the mod cons that todays families both need, and want. There are flat screen TV's throughout, and the home does have high speed wireless internet access, offered complimentary to our guests, and all telephone calls to the US and Canada are free of charge too.
The bedrooms consist of a Master bedroom, with a King size bed, a crib for young children, and full en-suite facilities. There is also a Queen size room and a pleasant twin room themed for children. The second and third rooms share a bathroom. There are flat screen TVs in all the bedrooms.
Desiree's Cottage also has a separate sitting area which provides even more space for the larger family, and a dedicated dining area too which seats 6 people. The main living area is nicely furnished too and has a 46 inch flat screen television and a Blu Ray player. There is also a small sound system as well.
The kitchen is fully fitted as you would expect, with a dishwasher, microwave, full size refrigerator, stove, coffee machine, toaster, blender and waste disposal, and you will find all your crockery, and cutlery, as well as linens and towels, supplied for your stay. There is also a full size washer and dryer available, in the spacious 2 car garage.
Sliding patio doors from the family room open onto a covered patio, which features an over-sized screened in swimming pool. As we mentioned before, the view from the pool is very nice and relaxing, and is one of the most popular features of this home.
Desiree's Cottage, with the proximity it enjoys to all the local amenities and attractions, and the space it provides for larger families, is very attractively priced and as such it represents great value for money for the family on a budget.

We also remind you that we offer baby items, BBQ's, mid stay cleans, welcome baskets too, and through our friends at Kissimmee Guest Services a range of discounted attraction tickets, so please ask for more details if interested.
