Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This is the home everyone is talking about! Phillip’s Palace is the most sought after home in the Rolling Hills & Celebration area!

Located less than 5 minutes from Disney and 10 minutes from downtown Celebration, Phillip’s Palace was custom built for my personal use and now you can enjoy this fantastic home!

Filled with luxurious furnishings and decor this home is for those who appreciate the finer things in life - yet don’t want to pay Disney thousands of dollars nightly for the privilege of staying on property.

From the moment you pull up to this home, located at the dead end of of a Cul De Sac street, you will appreciate the large pavered driveway that easily accommodates 4 vehicles with ease. As you enter the travertine entry and open it’s double doors you will see thru the formal entry and living room into the huge covered lanai and oversized pool.

Spectacular view after spectacular view can be enjoyed from the breakfast room, living room, breakfast nook the family room featuring a triple sliding door that disappears into the walls and and of course the pool itself.

JUST ADDED! The latest and most modern TV made - a 60 Inch Ultra 4K Television! Enjoy the unbelievable picture of a huge 4K TV in the family room now.

You can sit at the breakfast table, one of the three lazy boys in the family room, the plush pool side rocker lounge chairs under the covered lanai or in the oversized pool spa and watch the nightly fireworks of Disney.

Early mornings you will enjoy the colorful spectrum of the low flying hot air balloons as they gently float by overhead. All the day you will be entertained by the majesty of the huge assortment of wildlife that partake of the 20 acre water and conservation area.

Watch as the Sandhill Cranes bring their babies up to your pool or the majesty of a huge American Eagle soaring above the lakes seeking it’s next pray. Storks, Flamingos, Ducks, Herons, Turkey Buzzards and many, many more water foul will help you relax your day away in this beautiful home.

It's so, hard to believe it is so quiet and yet so close to Disney - literally only 3 miles from Disney’s Animal Kingdom park- and you don’t have to fight the huge traffic issue to get to Disney!

Yes this home is designed for those who enjoy and understand the advantages of great living. The oversized foot 40 long pool, the large 6 person spa, the “clear view” screen that allows you to see it all, without the little bugs to annoy you.

The home is designed for adults, families with older children and business men who want to take advantage of bringing associates and family with them to the area. The home features two master suites each with king beds and private baths.

Two other bedrooms with queen size beds and a full bath between them. The family room not only offers spectacular view of the lake, fireworks and pool area but also has a 60 inch Ultra 4K HD televisions programmed with cable TV and over 400 channels.

If you are looking for your own “world” while visiting Disney or other theme parks you -have found it. Every theme park is less than 20 minutes from this home. Literally hundreds of restaurants are within 20 minutes .

For the golfer’s you have over 50 course within 20 minutes of the home. Courses like Celebration, Mystic Dunes, Championsgate’s 3 courses, Reunion’s 3 courses, Orange Lake, Orange County National’s 3 courses, Disney’s Courses including the Magnolia Course, Falcon Fire and over 50 others!

This is the home you have been searching for - but don’t be disappointed - reserve it now, if you don’t somebody else will!

If this home is to big or not big enough check out my other Disney homes. Listing #4559 was a custom built 3 bedroom home that was originally built for me. Listing #9390, Listing #7171 is a 6 bedroom home located in the resort community of Windsor Palms. Listing number 9392 was a custom built 4 bedroom condo I had designed for my parents - all of them are as close to Disney as this home.

About Jhony Alvarez

We moved to Florida permanently in 1996 after spending the winter and the first quarter of 1995 here. We sold our home and business in Kentucky because we wanted to enjoy the warm winters. We traveled for three and a half years while living full time in a motorhome until we built this home. Late in 1999 I decided to become a realtor and became a broker in 2001. I enjoy meeting people and helping them enjoy what we have became more than a hobby. We have recently acquired another motorhome and hope to travel a few months a year in it again. We enjoyed this home and shared it with family and friends for many years. This home was designed to be our permanent home and has many, many features for safety and comfort. This home is a Hurricane resistent home. It's walls are permanent as they are steel and concrete - we wanted to feel safe when we were here and think our guest will enjoy this quality as well. We had three hurricane'"eyes" to come over our home in about 4 weeks in 2004. We had NO damage! While other homes around us lost roof shingles and pool screens we had no damage. We didn't even lose our TV signal during any of the storms. We have owned this home and lived in it ourselves until 2015. As a licensed Real estate broker I have assisted many people with the purchase or rental of homes for the past 16 plus years as well. We love sharing our homes with our guests. We listen to the guest and try to provide the things they want and like while trying to keep our rental affordable to everyone. After being in business for many years one thing I realize is we aren't perfect and different guest will expect different things. We provide the homes with what most families have asked for AND used from our experiences. If we don't have what you desire - we will try to get it for you - our goal has always been to satisfy our customers and make their vacations the best possible!

Jhony Alvarez purchased this house in 2000

Why Jhony Alvarez chose Kissimmee West

Location, Location and location! Great Neighborhood, nice size home. This is one of the few places you can get to Disney's World Drive or Disney's Animal Kingdom Park in less than 5 minutes of real driving time. Located on the preferred side of I-4 the west side close to Disney, yet only minutes from easy I-4 access to easily navigate to the other theme parks, convention center, downtown Orlando and the Orlando International Airport.

What makes this house unique

12 foot wide stack and pack totaling hiding sliding door from family room to pool area. Huge 40 foot chevron shaped pool with separate large raised spa. Large covered porch inside the lanai with luxurious patio furniture. All of this overlooks lake and conservation area. Spectacular views, privacy and upscale bedrooms with flat screen tvs in each. The family room has a 60 inch 4K Ultra HD TV and surround sound system.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have been to Disney before and stayed in a rental home. We stayed only a little further away, less than 10 miles, but we soon found out how much closer this home was to everything including Disney time wise. We visited over Labor Day weekend, the time saving was incredible. We know we saved over one hour travel time each day to the parks. My time is valuable, especially with tired and cranky kids after leaving the parks. Oh, the house was really nice and clean as well. We hope to come back next year. Thanks for a great time!

Best stay in 8 years of spring training visits

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in hotels, condos and vacation properties. If we had stayed here 8 years ago, this would have been our 8th visit!

Out week was spent with 2 other couples, party was 7 total. Everyone was very comfortable. Pool area is fantastic and the lot is aligned so it is very private. As soon as I know next years date I will be organizing my next stay at this property.

Great Space! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This property is the best I have stayed at. We come every year for Spring training at Disney. We have done hotel, condo and home. The property lot is aligned for privacy, which really sets it apart from the typical home. The out door pool area is fantastic. We had 7 people and plenty of room. I will certainly be looking to stay here next year! Jhony was awesome! Any questions were answered right away. The Location is easy access to anything you want in Orlando.

Great place for families with small children - as well adults.. Pool area very nice...

  • 5 of 5

Overall "5" stars for convenience to: Disney Parks, Grocery, Restaurants, Expressways, Pool was great. Loved the matching leather Lazy-Boy recliners. Things that could be better: More wash clothes, make sure all lamps have bulbs, repair the door leading out to back yard from pool area. Need written instructions for TV remotes. Headboard in Master BR needs attached - rattles against wall with the least amount of movement. Master bath sink on left side - slow to drain - other side needs stopper. We left some hand dish washing liquid upon departing for the convenience of next guests. You may be thinking - why 5 stars then? Because these things can be rectified quickly at little expense to owner. Even with these suggestions, it merits 5 stars. However, if I rent it again and these things remain overlooked - then it will be less stars...

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Doug. NONE of these issues should have been with this home. Did you call Jhony and advise of these concerns? We try to make sure things like these never happen. Sometimes the cleaning crew is hurried because of back to back rentals - I noticed yours was one of these. The cleaning crew is suppose to provide us with a report of these type issues. We also leave extra light bulbs in the house - because we never know when a light bulb is going to blow. You should have found them in the hall linen closet by the guest bath between the two queen bedrooms. We stock the home with 16 full sets of towels, wash clothes and hand towels. We have a laundry to you can wash them over and over should you need to. Thanks for your review and understanding. We strive to make this a premiere home. We are re-doing a lot of yard issues as our landscaping company isn't up to par - and they have been advised. I know this doesn't affect your vacation - but we want our home to always look like the resort we believe it to be for you! Mickey, Jhony and the team!

Fun house, wonderful vacation!!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home, the pool was a huge hit. Enough towels and fairly well-stocked kitchen items. Lacking measuring cups and spoons. No grill, which we ended up renting for the week. The photo shows a grill, it was a deal-breaker in choosing this home. Alas, no grill. The lanai is essential!! Enjoyed our time, thank you!

Owner's Response: Jean, Thanks for your review of our home! We are happy you found it to be a fun house and provided you with a wonderful vacation - that is always our goal. Jhony takes it personally when we don't get a 5 star rating - but I know some people can't give a 5 star - even if it was the best experience ever - while others will give a 5 star for anything. Regardless, we know our home and you gave us a very positive review - and we appreciate it as it will help others! I do want to go over two individual things you mentioned. First, we never promised a grill would be in the home anywhere or was it listed as an amenity in the home. I know a rental grill is in some of the home photos - we show it because it shows how large our covered lanai is and it's availability. As you know, because you called and we helped you get the grill two weeks before your arrival. We want other guest to know they can have a grill if they wish to take responsibility for them. We did offer them. however, they became a huge liability because of law suites involving them - fortunately not with us - but with other private owners. Our attorney's and insurance companies basically forced out of providing them. Thus, we use a third party where you make arrangements directly with the provider of the grill. We have many guest from all over the world - and many of them don't know how to use a propane gas grill safely or they do stupid things and get children hurt. So, as I said - we can and will assist you in getting a grill in advance or after you arrive whenever we can. Now as to spoons and measuring cups. We try to have one measuring cup in the home, but they can get broke, thrown away or just end up missing. A good cook, like I'm sure you are, can pretty much estimate what one cup is with a coffee cup or 8 ounce glass - which we have many of in the home. And the other heavily used measuring devices are tablespoons and teaspoons - which this home has a lot of. I have not heard your complaint on spoons before or since you left - but I will go check it out to make sure we have plenty! Things happen, and we don't nickel and dime clients for taking or breaking things if they are small - hopefully we are not short - but either way we will make sure we have plenty for our next guest! Thanks again for your kind review! We hope you will recommend our home to your family and friends! Mickey, Jhony and the team.
