About the property

3 bed 2 bath with pond view.

Our home from home is Ideally located for Disney World, Sea World and all the attractions of Orlando Florida. Also peaceful and calming after a hectic day at the parks. We love nothing more that to sit outside and enjoy the view of the lake, its so tranquil and away from all the hustle and bustle of all the theme parks. We have 3 bedrooms a master with queen bed and en suite, with walk in wardrobe. The second is a Queen bed, the third is a twin the house bathroom sits between them both. The two bedrooms have large closets. We have laminate or tile flooring throughout.

About Tracey Rhodes

We are a family of 5, and struggled to find suitable hotels for us. After visiting Florida in 1996 we were hooked and very quickly bought our holiday home. We love it there, even if we visited every year for the rest of our lives there would be still so much to do!

Tracey Rhodes purchased this house in 1997

Why Tracey Rhodes chose Crescent Lakes

We purchased this house in 1997. It is south facing over looking a pond with lots of lovely wild life to see and watch. The reason we liked it was the feeling of space and the cathedral ceilings add to this. The layout suited us as we have 3 sons and hotels just don't have enough space for us. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we do every time we go.

What makes this house unique

We just love to relax and watch the wildlife in the pond. We have seen Osprays, turtles, and lots of fish. Whilst i love Florida for all the attractions and things to do its also amazing to sit a while and watch the world go by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Tracey, well we are back home now time has flown by whilst staying at your house in Florida. Everything was just great and just as we expected it would be. The pool was fantastic very clean (credit to the pool guy) and the house wa immaculate. We even saw the alligator up close in the lake (not too close though.) All in all a fantastic 3 weeks.

It was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The pool area was a perfect place to play with a bunch of little ones. The house is clean and cool, there are two seating areas. One perfect to watch World Cup games and the other to sit and play monopoly. There were cooking pans, bowls, utensils, everything you need to feel at home. Florida water can smell and taste weird so water bottles are a plus. We had visits from ducks but no gators. Universal and Disney are a 30min drive away, we didn’t get much traffic. There is a Walmart nearby and downtown Kissimmee is even more lovely than Orlando. Clearwater beach is less than 2hours away. All in all the location is excellent in a clean, safe, community. The house had clean bed sheets, pool toys in the large garage, fire sticks in every TV, alarms on all doors to the pool, and more. My parents loved playing loud salsa music, drinking their coffee and watching the sun over the lake, and enjoying the weather. We will definitely be planning a trip back!

Beautiful Clean home with amazing private screened in pool

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean. Tracey answered all of our questions and responded to our needs very quickly.

The pool was the best part of the trip.

The neighborhood was very quiet.

Plenty of space inside and plenty of seating pool side. The washer and dryer are very modern and worked great. The house was very easy to get to from the parks. It was so nice to come home from the parks and take a night swim in the lighted, screened in pool.

Thanks so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

We will definitely be back next year!!

Perfect villa for family holidays

  • 5 of 5

Just had another fantastic 3weeks at this property, stayed here last year for 3weeks and were really impressed. Set in a quiet peaceful location approx 35mins from Orlando int'l airport this spotlessly clean villa offers all the comforts of home with the added benefit of a spotlessly clean solar heated pool. This villa is totally equipped with everything you would need for a relaxing holiday in the sun. The large pool area at the rear overlooks a lake which offers privacy when sunbathing/swimming and offers a sheltered seating area with ceiling fan for those quiet evening meals. Disney world, Seaworld and Universal Studios are just 30mins away and Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is approx 1hr 15mins away. The nearest shops, supermarkets and restaurants are just 15 mins away. I would definitely recomend this villa and will definitely be enquiring for availability for our summer holiday next year.

The Villa was lovely and clean.

  • 5 of 5

We all felt like we were at home when we arrived at the villa. Everything you could need is provided.

The pool is fantastic and it has such a lovely view over the lake. Very peaceful watching the wildlife.

We hope to return and will definitely book Tracey and Gary's villa again.

We could not fault anything and we even had a Bbq - bonus.

Many thanks for letting us stay in your home.

Sue, Allan, Tara and Scott
