Spacious villa-style house 10 min (8 mi/12km) away from Disney property. Pool is completely private, screened, and heated*. 3 bedrooms with 4 beds (for 6 guests), 2 full bathrooms, iPad, free WiFi & TV/movies on-demand. Taxes included. *See details
This house features an open floor plan that will make you feel like you're home and not in a confined hotel room. It also features a split plan, which means the master bedroom is on one side of the house and the other 2 bedrooms in the other side.
Comfy beds and pillows, carpeted floors, and a great pool area will make your stay relaxing and fun while you're not out running in the parks or shopping.
The kitchen now features stainless steel appliances and a KEURIG coffeemaker with a starter set of coffee for you to enjoy.
Everything in the house is there for you to use: bath and pool towels, discount coupons, ping-pong table, guest iPad and AppleTV, washer and dryer, walkie-talkies, etc. We want you to feel like you're in your OWN house (and take care of it as it was your own as well).

Interaction with Guests
Check-in and check-out are "host-less", the house has a keyless entry system for check-in and check-out. A 4-digit code of your choosing will be required as your trip is getting closer so we can program the system prior to your arrival.
We live right next door in case you have any questions, need something, or simply want to talk or share a beverage with your hosts :) You can Airbnb-message us, text us or call us at any time...
Chatham Park is a sought-after community due to its location in the Kissimmee area, and its one-floor villa-style vacation homes. It's a very quiet neighborhood (except for the occasional teenager blasting his car's speakers...ugh). There's only 300 houses in our community, half of them are owned by foreigners and investors as short-term rentals (vacation homes).
Our community features tennis and basketball courts and a recreation park for kids, as well as a community pool - which you probably won't use ;)
The house has a garage for 2 cars, and plenty of space in the driveway.
Public transportation sucks in and around Orlando, but taxis are easy to get with a phone call. We can help you arrange airport/parks/shopping drop-off/pick-up for you through people we know. If you need directions or a general idea of where things are, feel free to ask us.

Other Things to Note
GROCERIES: We have Walmart, Target and Publix all within 2 miles (3.2km) or a 5-minute drive.
EATING OUT: There are tons of restaurants in this area (on US-192 aka Irlo Bronson Hwy aka Vine St), we'll be happy to provide you a list of our recommendations based on what you like.
POOL HEATING: The water can be solar-heated year-round, but it may be a little too warm in the Summertime (mid 90's). We will turn it on/off upon request, but please keep in mind it takes hours for the water to heat up or cool down. During the cooler months (Oct-May), gas heating is available for an extra charge of $25-30/day. This money is used to pay for the propane; each tank load is several hundred dollars. If you wish to add this optional charge to your reservation, let us know in advance and we'll submit an additional payment request through Airbnb and have a tank delivered in time for your arrival.
CAUTION: Please make sure you consider the dangers of bringing small kids to a house with a pool.
PETS: As 2 Chihuahua owners, we know how great it is to be able to bring them with us on vacation, which is why we will allow up to 2 potty-trained, short-hair-breed dogs under 15 lbs. Sorry, no exceptions. There will be a non-refundable pet fee of $150 added to your price (as a "special offer" if you submitted an inquiry or as an "alteration" if you made a reservation) that will cover the additional cleaning costs of leaving the house ready for the next guests (pool area, lawn, carpet, upholstery, etc.). Thanks for understanding.
No cats or any other animals, sorry.
SMOKING: Is allowed only outside the house.

The house is well located, comfortable and safety. We had great vacations there and we wish we come back and stay with Bob and Juan again. Thank you guys for your hospitality!
The house is beautiful. It has a good size, pool, ping pong table, everything you may need for your stay, and it's CLEAN. Besides, the location is perfect! It's close to the theme parks, restaurants, Walmart, Target, etc.
Juan & Bob were very nice and helpful in everything we requested. They are great hosts!
I recommend it 100%
We, my wife, I and two kids (16 & 19) stayed 5 nights at Juan & Bob's 'My house in Orlando'.
A great home in a great location. So close to all the attractions, yet very quiet and relaxing. It is very clean and had all the facilities we needed. We loved it there and highly recommend this property to everyone planning to visit Orlando. This is the place we will be staying again whenever we visit Orlando. Unfortunately, our stay was too short :)
What can I say two awesome guys. Very genuine, attentive and quick to respond to any queries. They are really helpful and will do their best to assist, as did when I needed them. Great friendly guys.
We will miss you Juan & bob.
La casa superó nuestras expectativas y la atención personal de los anfitriones excelente , muy buena experencia.
Juan & Bob were fantastic! Their communication was exceptional and they made us feel welcomed. Their home is comfortable and clean and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed our stay in Orlando/Kissimmee and would recommend their home without reservation.
The house was great! It was very close to Disney and in a very quiet neighborhood. Bob and Juan were very attentive, nice, and made us feel at home. There were a few issues with some ants in the kitchen but a) it's Florida and b) it was unseasonably cold and probably drove them in. I'd just keep an eye out on any food left on the counters. Overall it was a great stay! Thanks Juan and Bob!
Not only is Juan & Bob's home in Kissimmee magnificently laid out and decorated, Juan and Bob are amazing hosts. From leaving coloring books for our daughter and treats for our dog on check-in to customizing the weather app on the Apple TV to show the weather back home, all the little touches and attention to detail are perfectly representative of their care for their guests. We also had a very small, unique issue and Juan and Bob were immediately responsive and went above and beyond to help us out. This home was a perfect base for our trip to Disney and less than 15 minutes to any of the parks and we felt sad when we had to finally leave. Our 3yr old daughter still asks when we can go back to our "other home".
Thanks so much for your kind words, and for noticing the little details, we truly believe that this house is YOUR house in Orlando while you're here. You were fantastic guests, and we're grateful we got to meet you and somehow help you enjoy our city and state. Come back soon :)

We're a happily married couple that's been living in the happiest place on Earth for several years. Neither of us was born in Florida, but we won't ever leave; we love Orlando, our neighborhood and our houses. We don't see hosting as a mere source of secondary income, we just happen to love meeting people from different cities and countries and walks of life, and providing them an enjoyable place they can call 'home' while they're visiting.
Our puppies -Frida and Diego- are the most lovely Chihuahuas you'll ever meet, and truly make our lives happier. If you stay with us in our home, you'll love them in the first 3 minutes...guaranteed! ;)
We're relatively new to Airbnb as we just acquired our second property in 2014, but we have dozens of entries on our own home's guestbook of all the people that have stayed with us pre-Airbnb. We'll be happy to talk to you if you have any concerns or special plans for your trip, and will also do video conferencing if you want to "see" the property beyond what our Airbnb-certified photos show.
