About Mrs Caroline Reid
Hello, I have been married to Brian for 35 years, we have 3 grown up children and a beautiful granddaughter Lily. In 2008 I sold a business I had started in 1999 and decided to invest the money in a holiday home. Florida was the place for us, so with my daughter Samantha, we went on a house hunt, we had a brilliant time and as an added bonus we found our ideal home!! We have decorated and furnished our home to a very high standard. Each year when we visit we always spend time and money doing upgrades and renewals that have kept our home looking and feeling unique at Encantada. In 2017 we installed a brand new AC system and a new Pool Heater. In the past year we again repainted the house, installed a Keyless entry system and security camera, replaced several items, including the outdoor furniture and all the bedding. We Love our 2nd home and hope that you will too, all we ask is you look after it and respect it like it was your own Happy Holidays Caroline x
Mrs Caroline Reid purchased this House in 2008
Why Mrs Caroline Reid chose Kissimmee
After driving all round Orlando and looking at dozens of homes, many of which, were larger but much further from all the 'to do things', we were immediately drawn to the fabulous facilities including the large community pools, clubhouse, the lake with beautiful landscaping and friendliness at Encantada. The resort, on the edge of Kissimmee and genuinely less than 10 minutes drive from the gates of Disney and no more than 30 minutes from any of the other star attractions, is fantastic. Being around only 30 minutes from the Airport was another bonus for us, as was the fact that we are only an hour from either the East or West coast beaches. Inside Encantada is like another world, it is quiet, relaxed and hard to believe you are actually so close to all the action ..... the Perfect Location !
What makes this House unique
Our lovely house although very close to all the attractions is situated in a superb resort that is so peaceful and tranquil it feels like another world. We can relax in our own private pool and do absolutely nothing all day or we can take a very short drive to anywhere and do virtually anything Florida has to offer. In the evening we are lucky to be so close to dozens of very good and reasonably priced eateries something we love!! We also stay home and BBQ a lot and chill by the pool with a wee vino. We are opposite some of the best golfing in Orlando, at Orange Lakes, where there is a choice of courses to suit all players. The beautiful lake with its ornamental landscaping and walking paths is another great way to relax, all in all we love our holday home and are sure you will too.

Home away from Home
What a wonderful time we had!! Caroline was always very quick to respond to any question I had. You could tell she really cared and wanted us to have a lovely time in her home. Which we did! We will definitely be back. The townhome had everything you would need to enjoy your vacation. It is in a great location -minutes from stores and restaurants. Close to Disney. We felt right at home as soon as we arrived. You will not be disappointed if you book with Caroline.
Thank you Donna, we luvved having you to stay and you are welcome back anytime - Merry Christmas to your whole family xx
Accommodations were perfect for our family of 5. We had everything we needed, and the property was clean and well-kept. The owner communicated well with us. We would definitely recommend this property to others!
Thank you Linda, I'm so happy you all had a great holiday ;) xx
A Great Stay
My wife, 4 year old son, and I stayed at Caroline's place for 2 weeks visiting Disney and family. He loved the pool right out on the patio and was immediately enthralled with his bunk-bed. The townhome provided us home base and enough space to accommodate guests. Having a full kitchen was a great perk versus a hotel. Communication was great even though the host resides in England. The minor issue we encountered was quickly resolved. Thanks for the great stay!
Thank you for the review, I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at our house and that we were able to sort the wee problem straight away for you.
We would certainly welcome you back at anytime if you holiday in Orlando again!!
Perfect location and house
We stayed here for 3 weeks and everything was perfect. Good location near Disney but also shopping. Caroline was very kind and also let us stay a few hours longer so we didn't have to sit at the airport and wait for the flight home. The house was nice and with a lovely pool with sun almost all day. In the area there was a large pool area with the possibility of sun and bath.
We will gladly return!
Thank you Johan, I'm so glad you all enjoyed your holiday and I look forward to hearing from you again the next time you visit Orlando x
Encantada Florida home from home
What a wonderful welcoming house. A perfect base to visit all the Disney parks, the coast, NASA, wherever you want within a day! Close to great places to eat, to shop, to visit. Feels lovely and safe in a gated community and the house is comfortable and welcoming. The pool was perfect for our younger son (age 11 whilst there!) and my teenager joined me for runs around the lake. Everyone is friendly and helpful. We didn’t spend a lot of time there...so many other things to do, but the house looked after us when there. Clothes washing, making a meal, spacious bedrooms for the kids to escape each other...it was all possible. Caroline is lovely, keeps in touch with you and we did not worry in the slightest about finding the house in the dark after a long flight and entrance into the US. Lots of info available. Thank you so much. Saving to visit again in 2 years time (fingers crossed).
Thank you for your luvvly review Liz, I'm so glad you all had such a great time and managed to do so much during your holiday.
We certainly look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back the next time you come to Orlando!!
Everything from initial contact to checking out was with complete ease. Caroline was always immediately available. The home is beautiful, close to all attractions and plenty of room for a family of 5.
Thank you Jennifer, your patience at the beginning of your holiday when we were having the pool repaired was very much appreciated - perfect guests and welcome back anytime ;)
