The Crescent Lakes Community
Crescent Lakes is well located for the Disney theme parks and has some of the finest views of nature. Surrounded by conservation land where it is home to deer, turtles, armadillos, eagles and hundreds of reptiles and birds.
The Crescent Lakes community is set in beautifully landscaped grounds surrounded by palm trees and on your approach to this tranquil location, you will notice the palm tree lined clean, wide roads.
In just minutes you can leave the peace and quiet of our villa and be at the centre of the action on the famous 192 highway where you will find restaurants and attractions for you and your family to enjoy.
Crescent Lakes is in Kissimmee and is a quiet up-market residential area off the 192 East of Disney. When we discovered Crescent Lakes we knew immediately that this was the perfect location because it has both the proximity to all the major theme parks (Disney, Sea World, Universal and others) as well as having the privacy and space that other housing developments do not.
All the houses are well spaced out and are beautifully designed both externally and internally. Our Luxury Villa has been fully refurbished recently, so it is clean and smart through out. Opposite our Villa (across the street) is beautiful wooded conservation area, and behind is one of the lakes.
At the back of Crescent Lakes is an enormous Conservation Area which has nature walks over a boarded walk-way where you can see exotic wildlife and birds and many species of plants and shrubs.
As the name suggests, Crescent Lakes is host to many lakes which are stocked full of fish. You are welcome to fish in any of the lakes in the area - it is ideal for (supervised) children too, as you can catch fish in a matter of seconds!
To find Crescent Lakes, travel along the 192 East away from Disney. Go past Kissimmee Old Town on the right (you'll see the Ferris wheel). At Poinciana Boulevard turn right. Go straight over the traffic lights (with 7-11 on your right). You will see Crescent Lakes to your right.
There are shops and super-markets near-by, as well as many restaurants and other activities (such as the worlds largest Sky-Coaster - a 300 foot free fall on the end of a steel rope). Near-by Kissimmee Old Town is well worth a visit, which has plenty of shops, restaurants and (free) weekend car cruises. A 15 minute drive will get you to Boggy Creek Airboat rides where you can take an exciting ride over some of Florida's marsh-lands and, again, see all sorts of wild creatures. Paragliding is also available over the lake, as well as jet-skiing and speed-boating.
