LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Almost anywhere in the world, “a few miles” makes you think of spending a few minutes in the car, listening to music or watching the scenery roll by. At Disney, “a few miles” can mean anything from a hop-skip-and-a-jump to 30+ minutes sitting in traffic. So close, and yet so far. Not to mention, there may be a constant chorus of very excited backseat voices, harmonizing “are we there yet?!” Over and over and over. Or, depending on how many miles comprise your “few miles,” backseat squabbles and meltdowns and… well, we parents all know how it goes. And that’s why we’re happy to say, at Villa Contenta you’re really, truly close to Disney. Three miles close, to be precise.
What’s more, Villa Contenta is close to all the other stuff, too: To shopping and big-name chain restaurants (just around the corner), to a Super Target and Publix (5 minutes), to everything else you need. You’re also a short drive to several excellent restaurants, from familiar favorites to best-kept Kissimmee secrets. (Ask about our favorites!).
”DRIVING” DISTANCE TO GOLF Indian Creek and Osceola County are a golfer’s wonderland, and Villa Contenta sits smack in the center of some of the best golfing in the area. Within easy distance (2 minutes by car): Mystic Dunes Golf Club and its 18-hole, dunes-style western nine, similar to a British links course, and an eastern nine of low American classic wandering through wetlands and oak forests. This course was rated 4 stars, and ranked number 2 in “Orlando's Top 5 Golf Courses.”
If Mystic Dunes doesn’t scratch the itch, then hop in the car for the 10-minute drive to the Champions Gate International and National 18-hole courses, both of which were designed by Greg Norman. The International provides a British links-style experience, while the national is traditional American style. The David Leadbetter Golf Academy is just adjacent to these courses.
THREE (!) MASTER SUITES We all know the worst part of traveling with family and friends: Divvying up the rooms. Who gets the master? At Villa Contenta, you all do! With three master suites, there’s privacy for everyone: The first master offers a king-sized bed, attached master bath, and pool access; the second master has a queen-sized bed, an attached bath, and pool access; and the third master offers a queen-sized bed and adjacent bath. The remaining two bedrooms are perfect for kids, too: Lightly themed, they each offer two twin beds (four twins in total), and share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. All of Villa Contenta’s bedrooms have top-quality mattresses, comfortable bedding, and flat-screen televisions.
In life, we quickly learn that almost everything – even the simplest of tasks – takes more than five minutes:
Warming your car up in winter. Slicing, toasting, and buttering your favorite bread. Scrolling through your digital TV guide. Brewing a pot of coffee. Heck, even a simple shampoo + conditioner takes more than 5 minutes.
You know what not-so-simple thing takes only five minutes? Driving to Disney from Villa Contenta.
You read that right: You’re just five minutes to Disney, from this five-bedroom, family-friendly villa in Indian Creek. From Villa Contenta, with its three (!) master bedrooms, its own private pool, its own bubbling hot tub, its own family game room. From Villa Contenta, where you’re so close to golf, to the playground, and to restaurants.
Villa Contenta, where you’re five minutes to Disney.
So whether it’s you and a backseat packed with excited kids, or you with a backseat of are-we-there-yet? adults (everyone’s a kid at heart, when it comes to Disney), Villa Contenta will get you from front door to the Animal Kingdom parking lot in less time than it took to make your morning coffee.
Can you imagine? You could be at Disney, in just five minutes.+ More
