About the property

5 BR 4 Bath with south facing pool 10 minutes from Disney

This 5 bedroom, 4 bath home in the award-winning gated community of Terra Verde is sumptuously furnished, with 4 flat screen televisions, wireless internet, and local telephone, which can be used internationally with a locally purchased calling card.

There are two master bedrooms with en suite full baths: one downstairs and one upstairs. There is another downstairs bedroom in the front of the house with a full bath directly across the hall. Two children's bedrooms upstairs, each with twin beds, share another full bath.

The screened pool faces due south, getting direct sunlight all year long. There is a free standing hot tub as well, much preferable to the lukewarm spas that are frequently attached to the swimming pool proper. A BBQ grill can be rented from the management company for $5/day.

The house is baby-friendly, with a portable ('Pack N' Play') crib, high chair, and a couple of umbrella strollers. The door to the pool is lockable in three different places, and there is an optional safety fence which can be anchored into the deck between the house and the pool.

There is a laundry room with a washer and dryer.

There is also a well preserved 1920's upright piano. Bring your Beatles Songbook and serenade your family!

Pool heat can be purchased for $25/day. Stays of over 10 days will be given a lower rate.

* Nearly 6000 square feet of clubhouse space

About Dan Riddle

My wife and I met while working on a cruise ship out of Cape Canaveral. When we were dating we used to come to Orlando for the day. Now we come down at least twice a year with our three kids from our home in Pennsylvania.

Dan Riddle purchased this house in 2013

Why Dan Riddle chose Terra Verde Resort

I chose this property chiefly because Terra Verde is the nicest, most upscale gated community I have visited.

Great Family Holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks in October and had a great time The villa is spacious with good sized bedrooms and living areas, it was very clean and well equipped with everything you should need. It has a nice sized outside pool area with ample loungers & chairs. Terra Verde is one on the nicest gated communities in the Kissimmee area and has a nice communal pool, with a great outside Tiki Bar (happy hour 4-6 pm) that also serves a selection of meals. Terra Verde is a great location for all the restaurants on the US192 and is 20 minutes from the main parks, also a big Walmart is only 5 minutes away. The owner Dan was excellent to deal with and always answered emails very promptly. To sum up: great villa, great resort, great location would definitely book again !

Greatest experience ever

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in four years staying at 188 hideaway beach! We love it like its our own. To Dan the house owner he was always so helpful and kind! He went out of his way to make our stay the best it could be! The location is stunning and I absolutely love a south facing pool as it has sun all day long! The house had everything we needed and was such a pleasure to return to after an outing. Can't wait to get there again next year!

Fab house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this spacious house over the Easter holidays. We were a party of seven. My husband and I along with 5 teenagers ranging from the ages of 13-19. This was perfect for us. We made use of the pool and the hot tub. The pool table was our evening entertainment. The house is in a great location only 30mins from universal and islands of adventure. Disney is closer but as our kids are older we didn't visit it. The resort Terre verde was quiet and picturesque. We visited the bar once and didn't make use of the communal pool due to long days at the parks. The staff on the resort were friendly and helpful. The owner of the house was very accommodating and was quick to answer any queries we had. The only draw back for us is we liked to cook at the villa as eating out with 5 teens gets expensive. The kitchen had limited utensils and oven dishes. That said we managed and had some lovely meals at the house. At the end of the day we had a lovely stay at the villa, the house was very clean and I would definitely recommend it.

Amazing and relaxing quiet home

  • 5 of 5

This home is situated away from the main clubhouse and behind it there is a small lake. These two combined meant we had a very quiet location. The house was beautiful and totally true to the online photos. We have been to Florida 5 times and have stayed somewhere different each time. This home however takes the cake!! We would definitely rent it again. Dan and his property managers were super to deal with. They responded to any requests very quickly.

The clubhouse and resort staff were also wonderful. We used the clubhouse every day and enjoyed all the activities it offered. The adults loved the tiki bar and the kids loved the pool! The hot tub was hot and the facilities all clean. A 5 star location.
