About Sid Payne
Carey and I are originally both from the mid-west but met in central Florida while working at Medieval Times. That was quite the adventure. About 23 years ago we decided to move to Colorado together and get married. We now live just north of Boulder, Colorado. We have two boys, one in high school and one attending to the University of Colorado.
Sid Payne purchased this House in 2016
Why Sid Payne chose Kissimmee
We purchased this property because we still have friends and family in the area and visit often. While we do hope to rent the house as much as possible, visiting family and friends is also extremely important for us. Additionally, we really enjoy a lot of what Florida has to offer. We particularly like the major theme parks and the beaches. Wekiwa Springs is also a favorite place to spend a hot summer day.
What makes this House unique
There are many things that make this house a great place to vacation. Its proximity to all of the local attractions is fantastic and will save you lots of time on your vacation. We also feel that we have paid special attention to a lot little details. We have provided a lot of extras such as: • Great entertainment options (nice televisions, gaming systems). • A computer for looking things up or printing your boarding pass. • A home theater with large screen, Xbox 360 and Blu-Ray player. Overall we wanted to make this home the way we would want it to be while we are on vacation. We think you will find all the extra little touches really special.

Long weekend with extended family
We were 5 adults and 4 children and the house had so much space and surpassed all our needs. The pool was great as well as the movie room. It's a gated community with only around 25 houses so it feels quite private and safe. Close to everything (attractions, resteraunt, supermarket, gas station, etc)
Great Place For A Family Disney Trip!
We stayed at Acadia Estates for four nights in October, and would highly recommend it to anyone coming to the Orlando area.
When the listing says it's close to Disney World - it's not just a marketing ploy to get you to stay. It's about 1.5 miles off a made thoroughfare in Orlando, and only about 4 miles from the Walt Disney World exit on Highway 4. Just being that close to restaurants, shops, stores, and the attractions was huge. It's only a 25-30 minute drive to Universal.
As soon as we walked in, we could tell the entire place had been thoroughly and recently cleaned. It smelled and felt fresh.
We had six adults and a toddler, and had plenty of room. All three couples had a private bathroom with a king size bed, and our toddler had her choice of two kids rooms or another room with a king.
The pool area was amazing and really deserves a day allotted to just hanging by it and the jacuzzi. We wished we could take it home with us. The theatre room was amazing and I spent a full saturday in there watching football, while others participated in various activities in Orlando.
We would highly recommend this place to family and friends. Sid and Carey were great hosts and communicated within minutes when we had a request or question, from when we booked in June through our departure last week.
Quiet neighborhood - no loud music or people walking around all the time - but very close to shops and restaurants.
The couches in the living room were a little low and didn't sit very comfortably.
The mattresses upstairs were a little soft for our liking - understand that that's a personal preference. Would have liked a something a little more firm.
There was a slight odor in the theatre room - not sure if it was because of the rain or not.
Great place to stay. Highly recommended. More than likely we will stay here during our next Disney trip if it's available.
A lovely house, close to all the fun.
As a Florida local. I’m always looking for rentals that make me feel at home. This house did this and more. From the free heated pool and perfectly controlled AC, we couldn’t ask for more. Sid was quick with any questions I had and his property manager was always ready to help. I will be returning very soon.
Dream Vacation fulfilled.
From the time my first granddaughter was I dreamed of taking my family on a Disney vacation. My dream came true this week. What wonderful memories were made for us an our children and grandchildren. The experience was well enhanced by our stay at your Villas. Beautiful and spacious with pool, movies and arcade games to entertain the kids during our downtime from the parks. Thank you for making our trip a huge success.
We love this! We are so glad that your dream was a success and that we could play a part in it. We look forward to your next visit! Cheers~ Carey & Sid
Perfect Place for Disney/Universal Getaway
My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at this comfortable, spacious, and lovely home for our Universal parks vacation. While it was a bit of a drive to Universal, it wasn't bad. AND the house is even closer to Disney and Epcot!
We made a few family style meals in the very well-stocked kitchen and enjoyed dinner together at one of the two large dining tables. The house is huge and had more than enough room for the 7 of us. Because it was so roomy, we were able to hang out together in the family and theater rooms but ALSO escape to our individual spaces when we wanted some down time.
Our favorite part of the house was the pool area. After a long day of walking (and walking and walking) around universal, it was AMAZING to hop into the pool to cool down in the evening or relax in the hot tub to massage our sore feet and legs. PERFECT way to end the day!
The Paynes (the owners) are very communicative from the start of the reservation process through to the end and they felt very accessible had an issue come up. Their expectations for us as renters of their home were clear and easy to follow. If we ever stayed in the Orlando area again, I would not hesitate to see if their property was available!
Relaxing for family with young children
Plenty of room to spread out and relax! Just a short drive from WDW and many close restaurants. Nice sized private pool and hot tub with screened porch... was really therapeutic after walking all day. The kids loved the theater room, which was separate from the living room. This allowed adults to talk and watch TV without interruption.
We are so glad you had a nice vacation and enjoyed our home. Looking forward to your next visit!
