The Kissimmee house

The house is located in a nice rural setting, a short distance north of 192. It had good privacy, a very pleasant outlook book front and back, and an orange tree in the front garden. But the garage was very shallow, and the rented car just would not fit!

Although this was a comfortable, if not luxurious, house, the strict rules, the cold pool the and comparison with other (and cheaper) houses we have stayed at means we would definitely not return here.

The view from the front

Just to give an idea of the rural setting, this is the view from the garage door. Several of the trees out the front (and some at the back) were orange trees. Although the setting was very pleasant, and the house fairly comfortable, the "rules and regulations" and the general feel of the house made it a little less than welcoming.

The Living Area

The living area

This is looking from the front door through the dining area into the lounge area (with TV) and open-plan kitchen/breakfast area. Pool access is out the doors to the right (one just visible, the other in front of the sofa in the lounge area). It was comfortable, although the kitchen was less well equipped than some we have stayed at.


The pool

A medium-sized pool, with spa (just off to the left). Although it was screened, it was underneath a very large tree and so got dirty very quickly. There was a solar-heating system, but this was not available to us for some reason and we would have had to pay a further $120 in order to have the gas pool heating turned on. In the end, we made do without - so the pool was colder than we've encountered, and we didn't use it much.

The Master Bedroom  

The master bedroom

This is definitely the smallest and least luxurious master bedroom we have encountered. But it was still very pleasant (even if the bed was not so comfortable and squeaked badly). The door opened onto the pool deck, and the bathroom was adequate. The other two bedrooms adjoined the much more basic second bathroom, one was a twin-bedded room and the other had a double bed and access to the pool deck.
