Quiet, as far as the ear can hear. Stars, as far as the sky can reach. Sumptuous detailing and designer décor. Lux linens and mood lighting. Touches of luxury, everywhere you look. Think you can’t have it all, and stay near Disney?
Villa Riva begs to differ.
Private and secluded, yet just minutes to all the Disney fun, this cozy home is built for families. Built for you.
Villa Riva is the best of all worlds – minutes to Disney, its own little slice of paradise. Your paradise.
SPACIOUS FAMILY LIVING
We know that family vacations should be about family – about eating together, playing together, and making memories together. Whether it’s just you and your newlywed, your only kiddo, or an extended family meet-at-Disney extravaganza.
Villa Riva is designed for just this kind of family vacation: When you’re not enjoying Disney, you’ll be at this home-away-from-home, dining indoors and out, splashing in the pool and organizing competitions in the game room, or gearing up for a movie marathon.
There’s an unwritten rule in Central Florida: If it’s sunny outside – and it’s almost always sunny outside! – you should be outside. Our screened pool deck and lanai are the perfect place to follow this “rule,” offering a bug-free respite for pool parties, barbecuing, outdoor dining, and soaking in the spa.
And when you head indoors, the living area is arranged in a great-room concept, featuring a large flat-screen TV and digital cable box, a Brighthouse digital cable lineup, and DVD player. Oh, and the game room is pretty sweet, too.
PRIVATE (AND WE DO MEAN PRIVATE) SWIMMING POOL
Central Florida is the land of outdoor living and backyard pools. It’s also the land of zero privacy – of pools stacked side-by-side like dominoes, so exposed you get splashed when your neighbor’s kids jump in.
Not at Villa Riva! Villa Riva offers a Central Florida rarity: a private pool, surrounded on two sides by a privacy fence.
In a word, it’s paradise. Paradise: Sunbathing with not a neighbor to see you. Paradise: Letting the kids cannonball to their heart’s content, without worrying about who they’ll splash. Paradise: Slathering on the sunblock without worrying what’s showing. Paradise: A beautiful pool, heated when you need it. Paradise: Privacy.
As always, we care as much about safety as we do about fun. We keep your little ones safe with pool alarms on the doors that lead to the pool and spa.
LUXURIATE IN THE SPA
If you appreciated privacy at the pool, you’ll cherish it at the hot tub. Your very own, very romantic, and very relaxing hot tub.
Allow us to set the scene: It’s night-time in Kissimmee, and the stars are out. Thousands of them, it seems. They’re twinkling in the inky sky: the Big Dipper, Orion, the North Star – they’re all there.
You step out onto the pool deck. It’s late and it’s quiet. You’ve poured yourself a frosty beer or a generous glass of wine.
The spa is bubbling. The steam is rising. You dip a toe in – perfect! You slip in, into the heat, into the bubbles, into the massaging jets.
Oh, and that south-facing pool and bubbling spa? They don’t overlook other homes, but rather border a greenbelt with no rear neighbors. Privacy and a view? We’ll take it!
FAST, WHOLE-HOME WIFI INTERNET
Need to stay connected? No problem. Our high-speed WiFi internet covers the entire home, and even extends out over the pool deck. You are go for poolside selfies.
Vacation should feel a little finer, a little fancier, a little more sumptuous than everyday life – right?
Villa Riva is your touch of luxury. Our home benefits from the talents of professional interior designers, who furnished our home in plush seating, soft linens, impeccable taste, and all the other special touches you’d expect.
KIDS LOVE THE REPTILE-THEMED BEDROOM
Have an animal lover in the house? Villa Riva’s reptile-themed kid’s bedroom is decorated with birds, frogs, gators and other Florida reptiles, and finished in a homey green-and-coffee wetlands color palette.
And hey, if the kids aren’t into cold blooded creatures, they’re sure to love our second twin bedroom – bunkbeds! With a TV. The big kid of your bunch will enjoy the exclusive view from the top bunk.
At Villa Riva, you always get to be the fun parent. Win-win.
ALL AGES DELIGHT IN THE GAME ROOM
Fancy some indoor fun? We converted Villa Riva’s garage into a well equipped game room, complete with a wall-mounted TV, kid-friendly Wii game console, and a combination pool-air hockey-ping pong table. Who’s up for a friendly round?
FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN
There’s just something about having breakfast in your pyjamas, especially on a late vacation morning. Even if you don’t feel like making lunch or cooking dinner, you definitely appreciate your coffee with a side of slippers.
Villa Riva’s fully equipped kitchen is perfect, for anything from a breakfast of cereal to a multi-course family dinner. You have the standard oven, stove cooktop/hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and dishwasher, as well as pots and pans, dinnerware (plates, glasses, flatware, etc. for up to 8 guests), and a host of other kitchen equipment, gadgets and doodads. Please, make yourself home, if only to find the cereal bowls.
LOTS OF AMENITIES FOR KIDS
Parents know: Packing for a vacation with kids, especially little kids, is the worst. The absolute worst. There’s no way you can fit all the required baby gear in your suitcases, but of course, you need your littlest family members to be safe and happy while traveling.
We care about your children (and your sanity), so we’ve stocked all our villas with high chairs, strollers, pack-and-plays, and other baby gear. Whatever you need, let us know. We have lots of baby and toddler accoutrements on hand, so we’ll be happy to accommodate.
LIGHTNING-FAST, PERSONALIZED SERVICE
Customer service is the cornerstone of our business, and we know it all begins the moment you first email us. We’re always at the ready, so we respond generally within the hour and sometimes within minutes. That’s 24 hours a day, every day of the year. We’ll never leave you hanging.
Of course, it’s not just about how quickly we respond, but about the quality of our responses. This is the part where we tell you how much we love the Disney area, and how excited we are to share it with you. And did we mention? We’ve been on both sides of the fence – more than 15 years ago, we first came here as renters – so we know what matters to you.
Want some great restaurant recommendations? We’ve got ‘em.
Need discount park tickets? We know how to snag them.
Searching for the cheapest car rentals? Not a problem.
Seeking the best microbrews in Florida? We’ll point the way.
Looking for Segway rentals? We know where.
When you rent with us, you’re treated to very personal (and very free!) vacation planning and concierge service. Everything you need, plus all that you could want. So go on, mine our knowledge for all it’s worth. That’s what we’re here for.
Interaction with guests
A STRESS-FREE WELCOME
We may pride ourselves on personalized service, but part of our quality promise is actually just the opposite: We’ve taken the personal out of check-in. Forget having to meet us at the office, on our terms, during our business hours.
We’re happy to say, we’ve gone digital – at least, as far as check-in is concerned. All of our rentals have keyless entry, so there are no lockboxes, no keys to collect, and no stressful meet-ups. (We all know how fun those are, especially when you throw in elements like a delayed flight.)
When you book with us, we’ll send you a digital welcome guide, packed with helpful information about your rental and the surrounding area. And of course, we’ll let you know how to check-in.
Other things to note
We get it – you don’t know us from the next guy. And simply trusting that we’re trustworthy? You weren’t born yesterday.
But trustworthy, we are – and we’ll do our best to prove it, well before you commit to booking. It starts with our response times (often within minutes, never more than a few hours). We go out of our way to answer all of your questions. And we’re honest about it; we won’t fib or exaggerate. We won’t tell you a home is 10 minutes from Disney, when it’s really 30 minutes in normal traffic.
What’s more, we’re legal, we’re licensed, and we’re insured – and we can prove it. (Just ask. We’ll happily show you where and how to verify.)
And if that’s not enough, just have a look at our reviews. You can’t fake the trust our renters have in us!
Pool heat (recommended between October and April) is charged at $25 per day / $150 per week plus tax.
A BBQ grill can be rented for you, from $55 a week plus tax.

Although we are British nationals we moved to Spain to live in 2005. Central Florida has been our favorite vacation destination since we first went in 2001.
So after many years of visiting Central Florida on vacation we decided to purchase and manage vacation homes for others to enjoy. Our company, Seneca 108 LLC, now owns a total of 8 vacation homes.
So if this particular home is not what you are looking for do e mail us as we may have other options for you to consider.
We do all we can to respond to inquiries as quickly as we can and a prompt service extends until and during your vacation.
