Once upon a time?(long, long ago), while living in the UK, we decided we would make our dream holiday (vacation) come true by taking our two young boys to Disney. We booked our flights and decided to do what they called a "fly-drive' so we would just travel around and stay in hotels on the way. This is how it went.

We would arrive late in the day, I would wait in line at the front desk to check in and pick up my room keys, while everyone else impatiently waited in the car and then pay an arm and a leg for a tiny room.

Then we would park in a crowded parking lot, hike all the way up to our hotel room, carrying all of our heavy luggage up flights of stairs, with two very excitable kids!

My husband and I had no privacy in this little room and the kids had nowhere to expend all of their energy. Two very excited boys!!!! We would spend all evening asking them to be quiet, as they were giggling and fighting.

The beds were uncomfortable, lumpy mattresses, the bathrooms were always small, four of us sharing ONE bathroom, and there was only 1 small TV that had a few fuzzy channels.

Then the kids would wake up the next day and want to swim. So, we all had to get everything together, hike down to the pool where it was a struggle to find pool chairs together for everyone to sit on. Then you realize you forgot your sunglasses, and it was long trek back to the room for someone.

We would be sharing the pool with lots of noisy families, my kids being some of the noisiest, so we would have to keep telling them to be quiet. Then they would have to get out of the pool once it closed, sometimes quite early.

Next day was a Disney park, very long day. We would get back to the motel and we would try to go to sleep, but we would be interrupted by maids, doors slamming, kids in the next room screaming and cars honking below or police sirens on the busy road we were on.

When it was time to eat, we would search for our car in the parking lot, drive to a busy restaurant, and pay for an overpriced meal, multiple times a day! My two boys were always hungry. We could keep chips in the hotel room, but not many rooms had a refrigerator, so we could not keep food or drink that needed cooling. If there was a fridge it would be the smallest one ever. We would waste so much money and time going to the restaurants three times a day!

We loved Florida and the theme parks so much, we would travel here twice a year, but still did not learn our lesson.

We brought family and friends with us a few times, but we would be split apart, into different rooms on separate floors. We spent more time trying to find each other and going from room to room, than actually spending time together! Then one day on a trip in 1996, we found a Vacation Home, and realized that we didn’t have to vacation like this anymore! That vacations don’t have to be overpriced, crowded and inconvenient. What a Difference!

We were so impressed that we bought a vacation home ourselves

We named the vacation home "Cinderella's Castle." This was the first time that a vacation house had a name. And we offered "actual homes" to guests. Every other company at that time did not name their homes and did not let you choose the home you would stay in. You would just be in a generic 4-bedroom home.

From this, we grew our business and started renting and managing homes in 1999, as one of the first companies here in Kissimmee

In 2018, we decided to focus on renting select homes, allowing us to pay more attention to our guests’ total experience.

We’re happy to offer the My Mickey Homes collection to you. We visit these homes regularly ensuring that they meet your expectations, we are constantly looking at how we can improve the standards, and we LISTEN to you, so please let us know what your thoughts are each time.

We are here if you have any queries and there is a management company on hand 24 hours a day for emergencies.

We try to offer our guests a Unique experience. For some, it is a once in a lifetime trip. For others, it is a regular annual trip, either way, your stay needs to be as perfect as it can be.

We have families that have stayed in our homes many, many times, returning and recommending friends and family because they know what to expect.

We have been earned SUPERHOST status on Airbnb, which I can assure you, is not an easy award. It comes from excellent customer service, fast response rate, perfect home cleanliness and five star reviews.

“Super hosts have a 4.8 or higher average overall rating based on reviews from their guests in the past year. Guests know they can expect outstanding hospitality from these hosts.”

So, don’t settle for a generic vacation home, with an inexperienced, unresponsive Vacation Company.

We are here for you, from choosing your home, making plans for your trip, while you are in your home and when you go home, planning the next trip ??

Book direct, save money and have full peace of mind that your vacation accommodation will be everything you dreamed it would be.

We look forward to seeing you in Sunny Florida
