Location of Florida Villa by the Lake on Eagle Pointe, Kissimmee
Eagle Pointe is an upmarket quiet safe residential community with a mix of permanent residents and short term holiday rentals and is adjacent to Indian Point and Liberty Village. Though the community is not gated, there are 24 hour security cameras mounted at all the entrances and exits to the community and a local Sheriff lives just a few doors away from our property!
The Eagle Pointe community is conveniently located just off Poinciana Boulevard a few minutes drive south away from the hustle and bustle of all the restaurants, bars and shopping outlets on Highway 192, only 10 to 15 minutes from the entrance to Walt Disney World and the other theme parks like SeaWorld and Universal Studios are a short drive away.
It means that it is quite feasible to leave the parks and return to the villa for a rest and a swim before going back later in the evening. If you have young children this can be a godsend as they can tire so easily when spending all day at the theme parks.
There is both a Walmart Supercenter (open 24 hours), Aldi and Publix supermarkets and a Walgreens pharmacy (also open 24 hours) close by for all your essential food and other provisions.
You can get to either the Atlantic Coast or the Gulf Coast in under an hour and a half so resorts like Daytona Beach, Cocoa Beach, Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg are all within easy reach. The award winning Siesta Key Beach is just a two hour drive away.
Orlando International Airport is 30 to 35 minutes away and Sanford 60 minutes, both accessible by freeway.
The nearest junction of the I-4 interstate is around 8 miles (13 km) away.
To give you an idea, here are some typical journey times from our luxury Florida villa to local amenities and attractions:
- less than 5 minutes to local petrol (gas stations), pharmacies, Walmart, Publix and Home Depot
