About Arlene D. Caruso

We are the Caruso Family of Saylorsburg, PA. For 36 years we have lived in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. We grew up in the greater Philadelphia area and moved to the Poconos to enjoy the beauty and nature that this area offers. It has been a great place to raise our 5 children. I love the summers here--but I hate the winters--lol!

Arlene D. Caruso purchased this house in 2004

Why Arlene D. Caruso chose Kissimmee

Since we hate the winters in Pennsylvania and we all love Disney World--it made sense to buy a home in this area. This property was bought because as they say in real estate--'The three most important things are--location, location, location'! We are very close to the theme parks, shopping, restaurants, etc.

What makes this house unique

It was important to us to have a spa--not just a pool at our vacation home. Our pool and spa have separate thermostats and a state of the art gas heater--making our spa into a hot tub. Our pool and spa both have safety rails for our older guests and we added a pool security fence for our younger guests.

We love the golf course view that this house enjoys! Where we live in Pennsylvania, we have privacy, quiet, beauty and can enjoy nature-- this home also has privacy, quiet, beauty and we do enjoy the nature around us. So for us it is just like home and a great place for ourselves, our children and now our grandchildren!

Comfortable, quiet, clean

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week here. It’s extremely close to the Disney parks. Lots of room so the 5 of us slept really well. Very quiet neighborhood. The place was very clean. Kids loved the pool. Arlene is a great person to rent from.

Fun Disney Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of four adults and two children recently enjoyed a five-night stay at Arlene’s home. We found it to be comfortable, well-equipped, and conveniently located near all of the Disney attractions. The kids especially enjoyed the themed rooms in the house, including the toys! Arlene was very responsive and delightful to work with. The Disney decor throughout the home makes it very special. Thanks for the wonderful memories!

True Disney experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice! I have stayed at several rental homes and none of them offered so much within the home other than Arlene's home. Everything was Disney, which the kids loved. So many toys to play with and pool toys, the kids had a blast! Would definetly stay there again! Home was very well kept!

This home definitely fit our needs. The kids loved the Disney theme, it was close to attractions, and the pool was fabulous. I would definitely recommend this house to a large family or group on a budget.
