Situated just south of Disney Celebration, Thousand Oaks is the ideal base for an Orlando holiday.

Just 2 miles from ChampionsGate at J58 on the I-4 which takes you to Disney, Sea World, Universal Studios and into Orlando. Disney main gate being under 15 minutes away.  Busch Gardens and the Gulf Coast to the west and Daytona Beach and Kennedy Space Center to the east are readily accessible.

We are also on the Old Lake Wilson Road; this takes you straight up to the 192 at Marker 5 West Kissimmee. Thiis is the main highway through Kissimmee with it's many restaurants, attractions and shops. Whether you are looking for a good breakfast before going on to the Parks (Golden Corral, Denny’s & IHOP come to mind) or an evening meal where you have a good choice of Sports Bars, Steak Houses, Mexican, Italian & Caribbean restaurants (Favourites  - Millers Ale House, Chuy’s Mexican, Outback & Bahama Breeze)  

Closer to hand, with the development of Downtown Champions Gate we now have a growing selection of restaurants in easy reach. There are many more restaurants further along the 192 but with our local ones listed below and those around Markers 4 to 5 where the Old Lake Wilson Road joins the 192 you have over 45 restaurants to choose from

 There are 2 entrances to Thousand Oaks, the northern entrance of  takes you to the extensively landscaped CR532 with Palm Trees lining the road and on to Champions Gate. We now have 2 Publix Supermarkets, the established one at ChampionsGate and the newer Publix in the Ovation Shopping Center at the intersection of Old Lake Wilson Road and CR532.

 With the  development of Champions Gate hopefully this will attract more shops and restaurants to open. At Ovation we have a  Subway Takeaway and Papa John's Pizzas. There is a CVS Pharmacy, Pizza Hut, Chinese Takeaway, Dunkin Donuts,  Marco's  Pizza and  7-Eleven Gas Station on the opposite corner of the junction. Both Ovation and ChampionsGate have Banks and ATM facilities should you need them. 

 The Southern entrance of Thousand Oaks is on the SR 54. Turn right takes you to the US-27, past the Chevron Gas Station  about a mile down the road. Carrying on if you turn left down Pine Tree trail will take you to Posner Park, the nearest Mall with Target, JC Penney, Best Buy, Staples, Ross Dress for Less , Dicks Sports Store and a 9 screen Cinema.

Turning left  on the SR54 takes you to the US-17/92 (turn right on the US-17/92 for Poinciana and Kissimmee). Before you get the the US-17/92 the at first crossroads on the SR 54 you have Old Lake Wilson Road on the left which will take you back to the northern entrance of Thousand Oaks with a handy Dollar General store on the corner and to the right the Lee Jackson Highway which meanders down to Davenport.

Our villa is situated at the top end of the 40 acre lake The lake together with the generous sized plots, and wooded preserves gives Thousand Oaks its charm and provides a tranquil respite from the activity in the Theme parks.
