Interaction with Guests
We are available at the beginning of your stay for questions, a detailed tour and keys. We are always available by phone and email.
This is a lovely quiet neighborhood with houses nicely spread out with trees and farm animals. You can see horses, cows, cranes, eagles, turtles and a variety of wildlife right here on our road.
Please rent/hire a car if you have not done so already! We suggest renting with Budget Car rental and we ask that you do not make reservations with Advantage as previous guests have been taken advantage of by this company with extra charges. There is not convenient public transportation and I would not suggest that anyone plan to stay at our house unless they are equipped with a vehicle!
Other Things to Note
There's an optional 2 bedroom, 1 bath yurt that can be added at $100/night. It's equipped with wifi, tv, king & full size bed, refrigerator, sofa in the living room and it has a loft. It's like a separate apartment. We like to call it Glamping (glamorous camping) at its finest.

If you would like to order items and have them mailed to the house please feel free to do so. Just message me before hand to get the instructions on how to have your packages addressed if you're not familiar with the US mailing system.
We take our shoes off in the house and have places to leave shoes at both entrances to the house. There are also
Indoor slippers for your convenience. We have a pet free house and like to keep it that way, so we ask that you leave your furry friends at home (or at a pet resort). Thanks so much! Also, since we have a pet free home, if you have sensitivities, you should be fine here, however, please make sure to inquire if we've recently painted. Lastly, please do not leave food in the rooms as that will attract ants. We have plenty of space in the kitchen to safely store your food items. This is a tropical region, and ants can be a major Major mAjor problem if food is left out in the open. We have glass and plastic containers for you to use as well. If there are ants anywhere inside the house or pool room, please let us know immediately and we have someone out to take care of the problem. Thank you so so much!

Tivemos uma excelente estadia, fomos muito bem recebidos, Jessica e Antônio nos ajudaram muito em tudo, dicas incríveis, empréstimo de carrinho de bebê, resolver a situação quando perdemos a chave do carro em um dos parques, enfim são pessoas maravilhosas, prestativas e amáveis. A casa é maravilhosa, aproveitamos muito a companhia das crianças, os brinquedos, a piscina, o gramado, meus filhos se divertiram a beça, muito obrigada por tudo, beijos
This is our second visit with Jessica and Antonio, due to popular demand of our 3 kids, who remembered that last time, Antonio humored their requests to get up in the middle of the night to look for armadillos. This time we stayed in the Tree House, a comfy, spacious master suite with a whirlpool tub, hot shower with dual shower heads, washer and dryer, and beds that were like clouds. Shortly after arriving and getting settled in, we were invited to take short walk outside to see the progress they made on their yurt, where they currently reside. Wow, Antonio's workmanship is amazing.
Another thing we enjoy is being able to meet a variety of people from different backgrounds. During this visit, we met 2 families, one from Brazil and the other from the UK, and we enjoyed getting to know them while we all prepared breakfast for our families. (The kitchen has a huge island with seating all around, as well as multiple work areas and 2 refrigerators, so there was no bumping into each other and there was plenty of space to store and prepare food.)
I think the things I take away from staying with Jessica and Antonio's is mutual respect--treat the house as you would your own. The no shoes in the house rule (which we also have in our own home) makes a big difference. I walked barefoot everywhere in that house and did not get dirty feet! Also, don't be wasteful. As a family that also tries to be this way, it's refreshing to see that they ask us all not to waste water or leave lights on.
We plan to see them next year when we go back to Disney.
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans la maison de Jessika et sa famille. C'est une famille adorable avec 2 filles. Les filles n'ont pas hésité à partager des jouets avec notre fils. On avait toute la maison a notre disposition. La chambre a été très spacieuse et propre!!! La maison se trouve à 30 min de conduite des parcs de Disney et Universal. Grand merci à cette famille pour un séjour inoubliable. Diana , Julien et Alexis
We had a great stay in this house for 3 days. It was very spacious and comfortable, almost 30-40 minute's drive to Disney, Universal and Vineyard Outlets. Squirrels, birds, (email hidden)n be found in gardens. Our kids love to play with the toys in living room. Overall a very wonderful stay and we'll definitely come again next time when visit central Florida.
We where looking to find a quite place near a friends weeding location and we found Jessica and Antonio's home.
Jessica's response was fast and diligent.
Antonio and the twins' hosting will be a dear memory that will stay with us, my two kids Alejandro and Gabriel and my nice Estefania.
No need to use lots of words to express a wide and quite and complete home.
Will be looking forward to stay again.
Rather than staying in a regular and touristy boring like hotel, we had a very unique experience staying 10 days at this outstanding American family house. The room was super comfortable, excellent beddings, freshly refurbished, modern, huge, silent, top quality furniture, super convenient, relaxing. We had for breakfast delicious waffles that we learned to make with Antonio. We had everything we needed from the kitchen and the room.
Antonio made us very comfortable all the time: he gave us some insights about shopping, the area, about Florida, the parks, and other things. And the twins are so kind and lovely! My daughter loved playing with them.
It was also very interesting to see their authentic, natural lifestyle. Very inspiring!!! We were very busy every day going to the parks and around shopping, but in the last day we finally took some time to explore the beautiful property surrounded by green an amazing huge trees - animals can also can be seen. We could see a hawk, and 2 deer's walking outside during the short moments we were in the house. We definitely recommend it to other families and would stay there again!
