Hakuna Ma'Cottage is a Lion King inspired villa just 5 minutes from Walt Disney World in Kissimmee, Florida. It has 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, including 2 master suites. This spacious villa sleeps 8 people in total comfort. The functional floorplan boasts a bright, open living area with a separate dining area and kitchen. The huge, southern facing swimming pool sits on an oversized pool deck surrounded by a screen enclosure and privacy fence. The game room features both a pool table and air hockey table. Let’s explore all the amenities in more detail!
For Florida vacation villas, one of the most prized amenities is the pool and Hakuna Ma’Cottage has a great one! The oversized pool deck offers plenty of room to relax around the huge, southern facing pool. A southern facing pool is desirable for the most sunshine on the pool throughout the day, but if it gets too hot, sip on a drink at the table and chairs located in the covered lanai. Of the three exits from the villa to the lanai, one is directly across the hall from the shared bathroom, so no need to walk through the villa with wet feet when nature calls. Make use of our ample wall-mounted bathing suit and towel hangers located in the covered lanai, so your wet swimwear and towels can stay outside even if it rains. The screen enclosure covering the pool deck keeps out the bugs and lizards, while the privacy fence keeps out the prying eyes of neighbors. If you have little ones, the pool alarms on all doors and the removable toddler fence provide a safer and more relaxing experience for all. If you are visiting in the cooler months, POOL HEATING IS AVAILABLE FOR AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE.
The inside of this villa is just as spectacular as the outside. The thoughtful floor plan gives a bright, airy feel to the living area while offering convenient separation of the dining and kitchen areas. The living room has vaulted ceilings and the French doors to the pool deck and large window above provide plenty of light. Hakuna Ma’Cottage is decorated with African inspired décor in the living area and adult bedrooms. There is 65-inch, wall-mounted, flat-screen TV, over a wall-mounted entertainment shelf housing the Microsoft Xbox One along with a collection of movies and games to enjoy. All five TV’s in the villa have free cable TV through Roku streaming devices which means all TV’s can also login to your favorite Roku apps like Netflix. The phone in Hakuna Ma’Cottage also has free calling anywhere in the US and Canada and of course, there is also complimentary, high-speed, wireless internet. Near the front door, there is a wireless printer which works with NFC and Wi-Fi, so you can print those boarding passes or maps right from your smart phone or tablet!
Off the living area to the left is the king bedroom suite. Stretch out in comfort on the king-sized bed and relax with your own flat screen TV or step out to the lanai through your own French doors. The king bathroom features a huge garden tub as well as a 6-foot shower stall. The walk-in closet provides plenty of space for clothes. Know your valuables are secure in the hotel-style safe located in the king suite closet. On the right side of the villa is the queen bedroom suite and the hallway leading to the two kid’s bedrooms. The queen bedroom suite features a queen-sized bed and has its own flat-screen TV and a private full bathroom with a tub/shower combo. The two kid’s bedrooms share a full bathroom with a tub/shower combo. The first kid’s room has two twin beds and is decorated with a Nemo/Dori theme. The second kid’s bedroom has two twin beds and is decorated with a Minecraft theme. I know, Minecraft has nothing to do with Disney, but our kids love Minecraft!
One of the best features of this floorplan is that it is open, but the kitchen and dining room both have a feeling of separation from the living area. The dining area features a roomy table with seating for six. The African themed place settings are complimented by a full set of Disney dishes and finished off with the “Be Our Guest” wine glasses. The kitchen has a breakfast nook with seating for three in front of a large bay window, so you can enjoy the beautiful Florida morning sun. The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker and side-by-side fridge with filtered water and an ice maker. All the cookware, dishes and utensils you need are there including plastic dishes and glasses if you want to eat or enjoy a drink on the lanai. See how many Disney cooking utensils and accessories you can count! Look in the freezer and you’ll find our frozen plastic mugs, which are perfect for the pool on a hot day.
No vacation villa would be complete without a game room. Hakuna Ma’Cottage has a game room featuring a pool table and air hockey table. The laundry units are also located in the game room as well as other items for your convenience, such as an ironing board, a Graco DuoGlider stroller, a smaller umbrella stroller and a highchair. There is also a pack and play located in the villa. We love families and children, so if there is something missing that you need for your baby, toddler, children or family, let us know and chances are we will purchase it for the villa!
The final amenity of the Hakuna Ma’Cottage villa that you should consider, is the dedicated ownership! We purchased this lovely villa in January of 2015. It was in need of a bit of TLC, but over the last couple years, we did extensive improvements to bring it up to its current beauty! We now have eight villas in the area, and we have near perfect reviews on all our villas. Our business philosophy is simple: provide an impeccably clean villa, constantly be upgrading our villas and provide the best customer service possible!
Try Hakuna Ma’Cottage for your next vacation and have no worries…Hakuna Matata!

About the OwnerMy wife and I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We have two wonderful boys (currently age 12 and 14). We love to travel and have been all over the United States and a good bit of Europe with our two boys. They are veteran travelers! I have had the opportunity to travel around the US for business and have frequently taken my family. My mother is from the lovely country of Luxembourg, and still has close relatives there, so we have had the opportunity to explore many of the neighboring areas throughout Belgium, France and Germany. I can speak a little bit of French and a tiny bit of German. My brother spent about 8 years in England and I was fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to visit him in this most beautiful of countries on several occasions. Our family would rarely travel to the same destination repeatedly with the exception of Orlando (there is just so much to do!). A few years ago we traveled to Disney World with our family and 3 grand-parents (7 of us total). My wife had the brilliant idea to rent a vacation villa and we all enjoyed it so much, we decided to look into purchasing our own. We did so well with our first vacation property and had so much fun, that we decided to try a second one and see if we could duplicate our success. Things went so well with the second property that we have decided to sell all our long-term rentals in Pittsburgh and buy more vacation properties in Florida and this is our main business now. Our family usually enjoys one or two trips to our beautiful villas in Orlando each year, and the rest of the year we rent it out for others to enjoy.
