I would avoid the area entirely. However we lived in Eagle Pointe (near indian point) and it was decent. Our only problem was that people drive down the little street doing like 70 at all times of the night. They need to put a big speed bump right down the middle of the road.

I spent about 5 years in BVL before I moved to Texas and I really liked it. From the outside people might think its a bad area, but to my surprise it was friendly and I never had any problems. Where I lived most of the houses were built in the 80's so that's why many people think its bad, but its really not. Its also alot more affordable than Borelando. The only way to find out is to actually go and visit the area. I see alot of posters downing many areas that are actually "normal" when, in fact, they are fine.

some people that live there don't think so. They say there's a lot of crime in those areas since they are close to orlando. Is this true?

Poinciana has crime.
Its not as bad as people think though.
I wouldn't be scared walking around outside at anytime, just because I grew up here.
Most crimes have reasons. <--Really they do there not random.

Osceola County is the 6th largest county in Florida so it is really hard to generalize about areas, really, depending on where you live you will have a different experience. The City of Kissimmee is really not that big but the huge unincorporated area is also called Kissimmee but isn't really in the City, all the new housing developments are not in the City of Kissimmee. The City of St. Cloud is even smaller than Kissimmee. I have owned a home in Remington sub-division for 10 years and love it, it is in the unincorporated area. We do have guards at gates at night, it is a golf course community and has its regulations but this keep our property values guaranteed, always nice looking and people are respectful of each other by behaving properly, knowing what is expected. This subdivision in just outside St. Cloud near the lake, great breezes, very nice place to live IMO.
