About Jimmy Vernor

We were both born in Texas, Arlington and Fort Worth, but moved away and grew up in other areas of the United States. As adults we returned to Texas, met and married 25 years ago. We have a beautiful daughter who is married to a wonderful young man and we have a handsome son who is currently in college.

Jimmy Vernor purchased this house in 2014

Why Jimmy Vernor chose Champions Gate

We have been returning to the Orlando area at least once a year since our children were very small. We love the Disney parks, love to golf, and we love the Florida weather. When the kids were smaller, we always stayed at one of the Disney resorts. As they grew older and bigger, we no longer could remain in just one resort room with two little beds so we began staying in a vacation rental. Finally, we decided to buy our own home to enjoy when we're here and hope you enjoy it as well. There are so many reasons to stay in a vacation rental bus transportation, no expensive hotel rooms, everyone has their own space, and in our home there's always plenty to do. Video games, movies, card games, puzzles, pool table, and that's without stepping outside. One of the best things about staying in our home is being able to have a well-prepared breakfast for minimal cost before heading to the parks for the day. Then, while you swim or soak in the spa, you can throw steaks on the grill for dinner.

What makes this house unique

We chose to purchase our home in ChampionsGate because of all the wonderful amenities. There is so much to choose from. When we're not golfing or swimming, we can hit the parks for the day. While at the house we can enjoy a movie in our very own theater or have a friendly pool or poker game with friends.

Great house, nice location, needs a little attention

  • 4 of 5

I chose this property because it had so much for the kids to do. The house was nice, clean and spacious. The pool and hot tub were perfect. But some of the furniture in the living room and bar stools need to be replaced and remotes don’t have backs covering the batteries. And most disappointingly, the electronic games in the game room, the pool sticks, the pin ball machine are all broken or without batteries. The TVs upstairs in the Theater room and the living area wouldn’t connect to the Internet and we asked for assistance, but the maintenance man told me to reboot the router and that’s all he knew to try. No help there! There are only two tubs for young kids to bathe in and the larger one has no hot water to it. The Club House is closeby, and the pool and lazy rivers are nice, but in the the game room nothing works and the theater room is always booked. We had a nice time, but we’re a disappointed about the condition of stuff for the kids to do and the electronics in the house. A little attention is needed currently, but if those things get fixed, this place would be perfect for a few families to share.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your comments. We strive to make every stay for every guest as perfect as possible and we will address every single issue immediately. Regarding the living room furniture, we have just replaced the couches and are happy to report they are very nice and very comfortable. We are in the process of purchasing brand new barstools and hope to have those delivered very soon. Thanks again. We hope to have you stay with us again soon. Best regards, Lee and Candi Highsmith, Owners

fun house

  • 4 of 5

This is a fun house- the game room was a real draw for the kids ages 6-10, and the adults too.

The pool and hot tub also got a lot of action.

There was plenty of room for the 15 of us.

We had a few maintenance issues but they were fixed quickly.

I will say the kitchen is not real well stocked..just little things like no hot pads but frustrating when you discover it after your dinner is in the oven. The couch in the living area was roomy but very uncomfortable.

The grill was unusable and needs cleaning or replacing.

The Oasis club was great for all of us and they served a wonderful Thanksgiving feast. Our table for 15 was outdoors..great to eat and then have the kids be able to run around while the adults had coffee and conversation.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and would probably return here.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. So glad you enjoyed the house and were able to enjoy the Oasis club as well. We love being so close. We really appreciate your constructive criticism also. We knew our couch was starting to become uncomfortable and we apologize for the lack of pot holders. We will definitely have our management team do a thorough inventory of our kitchenware and we actually have a brand new couch ordered and on the way. We hope to have you stay with us again soon.

Awesome house and great time!

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we booked online until we returned home and realized we had forgotten something in the house, the communication with the home owners was amazing. We had two families with kids of all ages and grandparents and this house and area provided tons of fun and plenty of space for all. The themed rooms, game room, and pool area kept everyone so entertained that we really didn't need to leave the house. We travel frequently and my kids said this was one of their favorite places. This house trumps others as it does not back up to any other house so you have more privacy and it is very close to the clubhouse. We would highly recommend it and hope to return soon.

So so so wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautifully decorated! The beds were super comfortable! We loved that the kitchen was fully stocked with all the utensils that we need at this time. The home is large enough for everyone to feel comfortable up to 18 people. The game room was phenomenal! The view of the pool was gorgeous and so was the Amenities of the clubhouse! Our family has stayed in champions gate before, but this home was definitely one we would come back to. I loved that the owners were so attentive to our needs and responded very quickly if we had any questions.

Great location, large house, plenty of room, activities for everyone.

  • 4 of 5

Our multi-generation family loved our recent stay in Champion's Gate. We made great use of the pool and games room, (although my husband thinks the choice of X-box games was limited). Our kids enjoyed the theater room after long days at Disney. We were able to enjoy the Club House lazy river and water slide a few times during our stay. This was a great house for a large family gathering.

Amazing...very family themed and like being at home

  • 5 of 5

The home was as pictured and met all its expectations. The family loved it, the kids loved it, the property manager was great and responsive immediately when contacted. My family truly enjoyed the home.... Just enough space for our large family and they all want to come back to the same house on our next family trip back to Florida... Either next year or the year after. The owners did a great job with decorating the home and making it homely and having all amenities needed. I only recommend a new sofa.... The living room sofa was extremely difficult get up out of because it sunk so low when you sat in it but it's a beautiful sectional. Our stay was absolutely perfect... No complaints at all.... Oh one minor thing... The hot water was an issue when it came to showering and baths but that's it. Thank you for opening your wonderful home up and we look forward to returning!
