We both love Florida and the laid back Florida life style.

We live in North Wales but spend as much time as we can in warm and sunny Florida.

Guestbook comments from the owner

On a golfing holiday this villa was centrally located.

We had a great time, everything we could want was catered for. The pool area at night was a great place to relax and cool down and yes Chris the sunsets are spectacular.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation seemingly started off on the wrong foot as hurricane Matthew hit Florida area exactly when we were scheduled to arrive and caused us a delay of a day in arrival. During that time we were in contact via email with Chris, the property owner, who was very curtious, reassuring and helpful.

We finally arrived at the villa the next day and immediately felt right at home. It is even better than what the pictures show. We loved everything about it: it's brightness, spaciousness, warmth, functionality and location. It suited our needs perfectly and was a pleasure to return to after a long day at the parks. It's location is really perfect with all of Orlando attractions with in less then 30 minutes drive. We did not end up using the pool but enjoyed sitting next to it and watching the ducks swim in the lake. We stayed in the villa 13 fun filled days during which Chris contributed helpful inputs via email.

I will recommend this property to family and friends and hopefully we will return to it on future Orlando family vacations.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

The villa was excellent and perfectly suited our needs, <30 min to universal and Disney parks and fully equipped to make our honeymoon as stress free as possible. Owners Chris and Chris were really helpful with all of the questions that we had and the property management team were also helpful.

Close to nearby Walmart and local shops/restaurants.

Thanks for a wonderful holiday

Orlando done right

  • 5 of 5

I've considered for some time how to best review our stay at Chris & Chris' villa. I didn't want to just roll out the tried and tested cliches.

Yes, the house is everything you want - well-equipped and comfortable. Light and airy. The area quiet, the lake tranquil. Sunsets are stunning. Conveniences are convenient. Close to the parks, but not too close. It's Orlando without being "Orlando". All of that is simply great.

Yet for us, the best aspect by far, was that the villa allowed us to just get on with our holiday. We didn't have to make allowances. It worked with us and gave us everything we needed. To use a cliche (sorry) it really is a home from home.

Thank you to Chris & Chris for allowing us to share your dream.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This villa worked really well for us. Generally everything was within easy reach, we spent a lot of time at Universal and wet n'wild, visited Gatorland, did an airboat ride with Wild Willys and drove to Clearwater and Kennedy Space Centre. House was immaculate, pool area was smallish but we had what we needed. Plenty of restaurants and supermarkets within easy reach. Overall it was a great base for us to explore Orlando and surrounding area of Florida.
