It's not worth the drive. What you spend in gas would make up the balance of your mortgage payment if you lived in Orlando - seriously. I think the housing bubble actually started in poinciana - I couldn't even short sell my house there when I wanted to move and had to quit a really good job on the treasure coast. You have a lot of wannabe gangsters there. They want to act tough but really have little to no bite. The Polk county side has newer homes and is closer to Haines City. If you like the country then maybe Poinciana is for you, although there are way nicer place to live in Polk county than Poinciana. I hated the Poinciana traffic so much, I would drive to I-4 via 27 to catch the 417 to go to Hunter's creek - BECAUSE IT WAS 15 MIN FATSER THAN THE DIRECT ROUTE - Go figure.

I'm new here. I'm looking for a house in Poinciana. I'm wondering if north part of Poinciana (Ham Brown road or near Poinciana HS) is safe. I want closer to Kissimmee since I work for WDW. It's about 20 miles to work which is not bad. Is it safer in that area than south? I appreciate some feedbacks.

Yes, that area is pretty safe. I really like it actually. It really is not considered Poinciana. Is there a specific development that you have in mind?

I like Crescent Lakes, Little Creek, Blackstone Landings, Doral Woods...

Doral Pointe have some nice houses, mostly built in 2006 but some lots are empty. I'm not sure if they are planning to build more houses there. I just don't think it's worth an investment.

I thought it's part of Poinciana because there is a sign of "Welcome to Poinciana" just north of high school. That area has same zip code as "central" Poinciana.

here's the problem! the idiot cops keep doing the same thing over and over and over again, in this case eight times, expecting different results! the prohibitionists have created an environment of illegal drug activity that has rendered entire areas of the country unlivable yet they are staunchly opposed to legalization, which would put the drug dealers out of business overnight.

Hi everyone. I am in the process of relocating to the Kissimmee/Poinciana area in a few weeks. I am married with 3 children ages 11, 5 & 2. I have some family that reside in the area and have visited a few tomes over that last few years but am curious about a few things. For one, it seems that the schools dont get great reviews in general. However the elementary school Deerwood does and I was curious if anyon ehere has any personal experience with the schools and Deerwood in particular. Also I understand that there is a new school opening this year on KOA st. Any word on how that looks? Lastly what streets or areas would you consider to be the best for a young family like mine? Any help will be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Deerwood is one of the best schools around. Most of the elementary schools in Osceola county are doing pretty well. It is when the children get to Middle then High School that you will see problems. Poinciana High School is one of the lowest performing schools in the state. Liberty High School is better but not by much. For Middle Schools, Horizon Middle is the best choice.

I would avoid the areas in Poinciana that are on the older side (15+ years). Specifically those near the Walmart. Polk County side is considered more desirable. My advice would be to stick to the 34746 area code which is not really Poinciana but is not far and has much better schools and a lot less crime. Also look into homes off of Ham Brown and Poinciana Blvd. When your children get to high school ages then look into out of zoning them if the High Schools are not better by then.
