In life, we quickly learn that almost everything – even the simplest of tasks – takes more than five minutes:
Warming your car up in winter. Slicing, toasting, and buttering your favorite bread. Scrolling through your digital TV guide. Brewing a pot of coffee. Heck, even a simple shampoo + conditioner takes more than 5 minutes.
You know what not-so-simple thing takes only five minutes? Driving to Disney from Villa Contenta.
You read that right: You’re just five minutes to Disney, from this five-bedroom, family-friendly villa in Indian Creek. From Villa Contenta, with its three (!) master bedrooms, its own private pool, its own bubbling hot tub, its own family game room. From Villa Contenta, where you’re so close to golf, to the playground, and to restaurants.
Villa Contenta, where you’re five minutes to Disney.
So whether it’s you and a backseat packed with excited kids, or you with a backseat of are-we-there-yet? adults (everyone’s a kid at heart, when it comes to Disney), Villa Contenta will get you from front door to the Animal Kingdom parking lot in less time than it took to make your morning coffee.
Can you imagine? You could be at Disney, in just five minutes.
♠♠♠ LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! ♠♠♠
Almost anywhere in the world, “a few miles” makes you think of spending a few minutes in the car, listening to music or watching the scenery roll by.
At Disney, “a few miles” can mean anything from a hop-skip-and-a-jump to 30+ minutes sitting in traffic. So close, and yet so far.
Not to mention, there may be a constant chorus of very excited backseat voices, harmonizing “are we there yet?!” Over and over and over. Or, depending on how many miles comprise your “few miles,” backseat squabbles and meltdowns and… well, we parents all know how it goes.
And that’s why we’re happy to say, at Villa Contenta you’re really, truly close to Disney. Three miles close, to be precise. (See drive-time bullet points, below.)
What’s more, Villa Contenta is close to all the other stuff, too: To shopping and big-name chain restaurants (just around the corner), to a Super Target and Publix (5 minutes), to everything else you need. You’re also a short drive to several excellent restaurants, from familiar favorites to best-kept Kissimmee secrets. (Ask about our favorites!)
We’re adamant about ethics and honest rental descriptions, so we’ll never embellish how close our villas are to the destinations that matter to you. So, let’s cut to the chase: Villa Contenta is located about 3 miles to Disney. In are-we-there-yet?!? terms, this means:
• Magic Kingdom: 15 minutes
• Animal Kingdom: 5 minutes
• Hollywood Studios and Epcot: 10 minutes
• SeaWorld and Universal Studios: 20 minutes
• LEGOLAND: 30 minutes
• Busch Gardens and the Kennedy Space Center: About 75 minutes
♠♠♠ SPACIOUS FAMILY LIVING ♠♠♠
There’s an unwritten rule in Florida: Where there’s sun, play outside!
Luckily, there’s lots of year-round sun at Villa Contenta, which means you can play outside any time of year.
There’s also lots of outdoor space, perfect for the whole family. Get everyone into the pool, or just send in the kids. Sunbathe. Play a game at the table. BBQ up something delicious. Relax in the hot tub. Dine al fresco. Play in the yard. There’s plenty of outdoors to enjoy.
And when the evening cools off, or the sun goes down, or you’re just ready for some time indoors, Villa Contenta has you covered: The family room is equipped with a very comfortable, very large sectional sofa (plus recliner!), a large flat-screen TV, and DVD player. Pop some popcorn, serve some drinks, and family movie night is served.
And when everyone’s tired after an exciting day at Disney or a leisurely day at the villa, you’ll all be happy to have your own little slice of privacy and space to spread out.
We call it Villa Contenta (“content,” or “happy”) for a reason.
♠♠♠ SOUTH-FACING, PRIVATE SWIMMING POOL ♠♠♠
A private-but-not-private pool is something of a buzzkill: The pool may be all yours, but you’re so close to the neighbors, they could throw you a floaty. Whereas, a private pool? Well, that’s everything you really want. Picture this:
You’re excited. You’re sunblocked. You’re bathing suited-up. You’re ready.
You step outside. The sun is shining. The pool is sparkling. The loungers are calling your name. And there’s no one in sight.
So you can sunbathe – in privacy. You can cannonball – no worries about splashing the neighbors. You can swim laps, play Marco Polo, or let the kids splash – you’re not bothering a soul. And you can even reapply that sunblock – no one’s around to witness a wardrobe malfunction.
No, there’s nothing quite like a truly private pool.
♠♠♠ RELAX IN YOUR PRIVATE HOT TUB ♠♠♠
If privacy is golden at the pool, it’s heaven in the hot tub.
No matter how sore your feet or tired your muscles – Disney means lots of walking! – and no matter how long the day, you own, private hot tub is guaranteed to make everything right.
It’s late. The kids are in bed. All is quiet. The stars are winking in a very, very black sky. In the distance, you can even hear the pop-pop-POP! of Disney fireworks.
Go on, dip your toe into the hot tub. Slide on in. Right up to your chin. The heat, the bubbles – it’s paradise in here.
Your own, private paradise.
♠♠♠ FAST, WHOLE-HOME WIFI INTERNET ♠♠♠
Need to stay connected? No problem. Our high-speed free WiFi internet covers the entire home, and even extends out over the pool deck. So go on, upload that poolside selfie.
♠♠♠ THREE (!) MASTER SUITES ♠♠♠
We all know the worst part of traveling with family and friends: Divvying up the rooms. Who gets the master?
At Villa Contenta, you all do! With three master suites, there’s privacy for everyone: The first master offers a king-sized bed, attached master bath, and pool access; the second master has a queen-sized bed, an attached bath, and pool access; and the third master offers a queen-sized bed and adjacent bath.
The remaining two bedrooms are perfect for kids, too: Lightly themed, they each offer two twin beds (four twins in total), and share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom.
All of Villa Contenta’s bedrooms have top-quality mattresses, comfortable bedding, and flat-screen televisions.
♠♠♠ FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN ♠♠♠
We believe that a home-away-from home isn’t complete without a fully equipped kitchen.
Bear with us. We’re not expecting you to cook a five-course meal, or even a one-course lunch – well, not unless you want to.
We do expect you to be you. Whether you start your day with coffee or end it with a cold beer, whether your kids breakfast on scrambled eggs or just need a bowl for their cereal, whether you want to order in a meal or just refrigerate a restaurant doggy bag – a kitchen is a must.
So, we’ve covered the musts – and then some! At Villa Contenta, you’ll have all the necessities, from the fridge down to the oven, as well as all the other kitchen accouterments: a toaster and microwave, pots and pans, utensils and gadgets, and plenty of place settings.
Of course, we all have enough seating for your entire group: a formal dining table (seats 6), a breakfast nook (seats 4), a breakfast bar (seats 4), and the al fresco, poolside table (seats 4).
♠♠♠ LOTS OF AMENITIES FOR KIDS ♠♠♠
Parents know: Packing for a vacation with kids, especially little kids, is the worst. The absolute worst. There’s no way you can fit all the required baby gear in your suitcases, but of course, you need your littlest family members to be safe and happy while traveling.
We care about your children (and your sanity), so we’ve stocked all our villas with high chairs, strollers, pack-and-plays, and other baby gear. Whatever you need, let us know. We have lots of baby and toddler accoutrements on hand, so we’ll be happy to accommodate.
♠♠♠ LIGHTNING-FAST, PERSONALIZED SERVICE ♠♠♠
Customer service is the cornerstone of our business, and we know it all begins the moment you first email us. We’re always at the ready, so we respond generally within the hour and sometimes within minutes. That’s 24 hours a day, every day of the year. We’ll never leave you hanging.
Of course, it’s not just about how quickly we respond, but about the quality of our responses. This is the part where we tell you how much we love the Disney area, and how excited we are to share it with you. And did we mention? We’ve been on both sides of the fence – more than 15 years ago, we first came here as renters – so we know what matters to you.
When you rent with us, you’re treated to very personal (and very free!) vacation planning and concierge service. Everything you need, plus all that you could want. So go on, mine our knowledge for all it’s worth. That’s what we’re here for.
♠♠♠ A STRESS-FREE WELCOME ♠♠♠
We may pride ourselves on personalized service, but part of our quality promise is actually just the opposite: We’ve taken the personal out of check-in. Forget having to meet us at the office, on our terms, during our business hours.
We’re happy to say, we’ve gone digital – at least, as far as check-in is concerned. All of our rentals have keyless entry, so there are no lockboxes, no keys to collect, and no stressful meet-ups. (We all know how fun those are, especially when you throw in elements like a delayed flight.)
When you book with us, we’ll send you a digital welcome guide, packed with helpful information about your rental and the surrounding area. And of course, we’ll let you know how to check-in.
