About the Owner

We have lived on the Greek island of Kerkyra (Corfu) for over 20 years where we owned and ran our restaurant in a busy tourist resort. Corfu is a seasonal island, so we have a busy 6 months, then we head back to our second home in Orlando where we chill out, relax and enjoy the wonderful Florida lifestyle for the winter months.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ken & Sarah, I can't thank you enough for making our first family vacation "away" from home a huge success!!!

From my initial email to you and any correspondence there after, communication was always prompt and very informative. Thank you for all the extra little tidbits to help us make the best choices.

My family of 5 absolutely loved the home. It had everything we could have wanted it to. The games room, even though it had a Playstation in it, for our stay never actually got turned on.....we were

challenging one and another in games of skill, whether it be pool or air hockey, sometimes foosball.

The close proximity to all the amenities was a huge plus. With a lot of our time being spent at the parks, your short-cut to Disney was greatly appreciated.

The patio with the hot tub and pool, I can honestly say got the most use. The kids were in every morning before we started out for the day and again in the evening for a swim before bed., and I

appreciated the hot tub in the evenings after our days spent at the parks. It was very relaxing!

You should take pride in the service you offer your clients, it is first rate. Your management company does an excellent job, the house upon arrival was immaculate. Thank you for making your home so

welcoming, and the kids LOVED the DVD collection you have. The welcome pack is a great idea, and the kids gobbled up the goodies in no time after the flight down. Any friends that are planning a

trip to Orlando, who are looking for a rental property, I will surely recommend your home. Thank you for helping to make our vacation very memorable for many years to come.

We all kept saying, could you imagine up all cramped up in a room at resort. We made the best choice for our family.

Luxury for adults, great fun for the kids!

  • 5 of 5
We all had a wonderful stay and truly enjoyed your home. The game room, pool and hot tub were well used. The kids were on the go nonstop and we did our best to keep up. We appreciated your treats upon arrival it saved us a trip to the store and after a 5 1/2 hour flight we were dreading having to go back out. You saved the day!! Making the choice to stay at Serendipity was indeed much more than your web site provided. You covered all the bases and then some. The personal touches were beyond our expectations. The home itself was absolutely gorgeous. The bedroom accommodations were delightful. It certainly did not take long for our grandchildren to grab their bedroom of choice. We had a wonderful time and can't thank you enough for allowing us to enjoy your home and all of the personal touches you provided on our behalf. Definitely, at least a 5 star experience. Much better than any hotel could even begin to provide. Customer service...OUTSTANDING!! Our stay was from March 7 - March 14.

Thanks very much, Sarah & Ken

Amazing Disney/Holiday Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This past year, our family decided to travel south (from Ohio & NYC) for the Christmas Holiday, and we stayed 7 days at Sarah & Ken’s fabulous home. Upon arrival and all 5 children were shocked to see Christmas presents under a nicely lit up Christmas tree. At first, we weren’t sure if Santa would find us all they way in Florida, but he definitely came Christmas Day. Over the course of the week, everyone had their own agenda, from swimming, to the game room, and outside of the house, a NFL football game and Disney Parks. The location was perfect! We were close to the grocery store, last minute shopping and a short drive (thanks for the shortcut) to Magic Kingdom! From ages 4 to 64…everyone enjoyed themselves.

Thanks for everything. We will definitely book again!

A splendid home in a perfect locaton

  • 5 of 5
This home is a gem. Very well appointed and lovely decor. It is very comfortable, yet has an air of sophistication. The backyard it great: as with the entire home, there is plenty of comfy seating. The bedrooms are spacious and all have a great sense of decor prowess. The location is also wonderful. Stores and restaurants very close by and all the main attractions of the Orlando area are just a short drive away. I highly recommend this home and the owners are peaches. 10+ rating!

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5
It was the perfect place for our family. Sarah and Ken were so nice and hospitable from the very beginning. The house was even better than we imagined; it was perfect for our family. The layout was nice too because we had lots of different bedtimes to manage. It was only a 10 minute drive to the parks. We will definitely be in touch when returning to Disney.

My family had the pleasure of staying at Serendipity at Indian Creek during the last week of September. It was wonderful! The owners (Ken & Sarah) do not miss any details. The house was clean, organized and very comfortable. The pool is fantastic...we were in it every day. And the hot tub was a wonderful way to relax our tired muscles after a long day in the Disney Parks. Our son absolutely loved the Nemo themed room and I can't help to mention that there were child sized clothes hangers in the closet...again, Ken and Sarah do not miss any details!

I "met" Sarah through the HomeAway site and from the beginning, I felt as if she treated me like a close friend rather than just another tourist interested in renting her house. Her hospitality is remarkable. I had asked her about the stroller she had available. We wanted a jogging type stroller for our son so he could take breaks from walking in the parks and be comfortable. Sarah responded right away and said the one they had was looking kind-of beat up and it was time to get a new one. When we arrived, there was a brand new jogging stroller.

I highly recommend staying outside Disney property. We have experienced both and I greatly appreciate having the comforts of home and not being immersed in Disney 24 hours a day. We explored the local scene in Kissimmee and Orlando. There is a great BBQ place just a few miles from the house (WildSide) where we tried Gator Bites (deep friend alligator) and the beef brisket sandwich was very good. Since we had a couple of extended family members with us, my husband and I took the opportunity for a date night and dined at Texas de Brazil. It is expensive but well worth it if you are a foodie.

We love Disney World and look forward to experiencing it again the same way we did this last time. I considered myself lucky to have found such a wonderful place so conveniently located to Disney and with a tremendously gracious and kind host. Thank you Sarah and Ken!

It was an absolute pleasure having you and your family stay with us and you know you are more than welcome back any time at all.
I'm pleased to hear the new jogging stroller got it's first outing!
We would love to be able to say hello again someday soon :)
Thanks a million, Sarah & Ken

From the Owner

When we were looking to purchase a home, we had two main thoughts - there had to be a spacious living area where all the family could spend time together and it had to be as close to the Disney parks as possible to enable us to easily pop back home during the day. As soon as we walked into Serendipity, we knew instantly it was 'The One' we had been searching for. We found our piece of paradise and now have the magical theme parks just a stones throw away and also all the endless entertainment and recreational activities Orlando and central Florida has to offer. Fabulous beaches are within an hour's drive, the Florida state parks are just beautiful. Shopping and dining are endless and of course we have the beautiful sunshine which is just the icing on the cake. Who say's you can't have your cake and eat it too!

Activity and Interests

Great Location

Our beautiful home is situated in the much sought after area of Indian Creek, just over 3 miles to Disney and conveniently located for Highway 192. There are shops and a selection of restaurants in the Formosa Shopping Village less than a mile away and a huge choice just a minute further on the main US-192 Highway. The community has a children's play area, fitness park, tennis courts, football and games pitch, practice putting green and jogging path.

Superb Golf

The fabulous Mystic Dunes Golf Club is a few minutes drive away and we have a preferred rate programme for our guests.

Selection of Good Restaurants

The Formosa Shopping Village is home to TGI Fridays, Red Lobster, Outback Steakhouse, Wild Wings, Cracker Barrel and Carrabas Italian Grill to name just a few and on the US-192 Highway a minute further you will also find Millers Ale House, Olive Garden, Longhorn Steakhouse, Applebees and plenty more.

Peace and Quiet

Although Indian Creek is close to attractions, the neighborhood is far enough away from everything to offer peace and quiet and has a mix of both residential and vacation homes.


Although Orlando is central there are also some fabulous beaches under an hours drive away. On the east coast you will find the famous Daytona beach, Cocoa Beach and Palm beach and the west coast takes you to Clearwater and St Petersburgh. You'll be spoilt for choice!

From the Owner

We love the fact the pool is not overlooked in any direction, the high enclosure ensures complete privacy and it also has a great whimsical beach theme, so it's not just a boring old fence! The lighting around the pool and yard at night make it a great area to relax and unwind after a hectic day and nothing beats watching a movie outside by the pool. The outdoor living area is our favorite place and when we have friends and family staying, we tend to spend all our time out there just relaxing and enjoying time together. Perfect!
