Overview

About the property

Sleeps 8, games room, child friendly, quiet location, fully equipped home

A lovely and spacious (1956 Sq. Ft) single level villa. 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with new carpets. Located in the quiet, prestigious secure gated community of Calabay Parc at Tower Lake. The villa is bright and airy, has two master suites containing king size beds and en-suites, both with direct access to the pool deck. The pool area has an informal breakfast table, there are 6 pool chairs and 4 sun loungers to make the most of the private, secluded, south facing pool. The pool, spa and patio are enclosed by a Lanai (insect screen) and during the winter months the water can be heated at extra cost.

There are two twin bedded rooms which share a family bathroom. All bedrooms contain ample storage space and new flat screen TV’s with cable. Additionally, the twin rooms have DVD players. These rooms are at the front of the house, making them more secure against children getting into the pool area unsupervised, they can be further secured with a child gate if required. There is also a removable “Kiddie Catcher” around the pool for added peace of mind.

The hub of the property is the central, fully equipped kitchen with a four ring grill, oven, large fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and twin sinks with garbage disposal. A toaster and coffee maker is also provided for your use. There are bar stools at the kitchen counter. A formal dining area with table and chairs lies adjacent to the kitchen itself.

There is a snug area with a comfortable bed settee, large screen TV and PS3 games console separated from the main living area, there are also headphones provided so the noise from the games area does not invade the main living area, which itself has luxurious sofas with coffee tables and lamps. An iPod dock, DVD player and 40” LED TV with cable channels is provided for your entertainment pleasure.

The garage has a fan for warm days and is converted to a game room with a pool table and foosball. There are bicycles and fishing equipment for your use, a brand new gas grille is available on request, for al fresco eating around the pool and also a high chair, buggy and stroller. A full size crib can be supplied if required.

The villa is in an excellent location standing just a minutes stroll from Tower Lake which has excellent bass fishing and a small boat jetty, from which you can enjoy the lovely Florida sunsets. For golfers the marvellous Southern Dunes public golf course is a two minute drive away, the Ridgewood Lakes course is also very close by, with Champions Gate and Highlands Reserve a few minutes drive beyond. A huge Walmart Supercentre and Loews are literally walking distance.

Restaurants including the highly regarded Manny’s Chop House are close by. Fast food outlets such as Dairy Queen, McDonalds, KFC, plus Walgreens, Winn Dixie and Publix Supermarket are all within a few minutes drive.

Posner Park Shopping Centre and the I4 are realistically a maximum of 10 minutes away. From there it is only another 10 minutes to the start of the Disney Exits or 20 minutes into Orlando itself, with all its attractions such as Seaworld, Universal Studios and International Drive. The international airport is about 35 minutes way in total. LEGOLAND is an easy 20 minute drive.

Daytona Beach and the Gulf coast are just over an hours drive, as is Tampa, Clearwater and St Petes Beach. It is also possible to reach the Everglades in 3-4 hours.

About Alexandria or Michael Edwards

We currently live in Bedford, UK. After a few visits to Florida we fell in love with it and decided to plan for a retirement out there. We began looking at properties and fell in love with this property, it is in great condition and was the only one of the 20 or so we viewed that actually looked like the photo's. It is on a quiet community with everything we could wish for close by. Travelling to and from the property is easy too, only 2 major roads are required to get almost anywhere in the state. Being a tad further out mileage wise means there are no real traffic headaches and it is just as quick to get to the parks from Calabay Parc as it is Davenport.

Alexandria or Michael Edwards purchased this villa in 2015

Great Villa in Peaceful Location

  • 4 of 5

We Stayed in Alex & Sicks villa for 2 weeks 4th May 2017 -19th May 2017

Gated community with 24/7 security on the gate if you're looking for that extra peace of mind.

Comfortable, clean and most importantly a lovely peaceful location.

We hardly heard anything during our stay.

The South facing pool was a bonus as it gets the sun virtually all day and we spent many an hour just chilling round the pool as Florida was experiencing hotter than normal weather during our stay.

Alex & Mick were very responsive to any enquiries and always got back to us very quickly.

All in all a great getaway and we would recommend the villa to anyone.

Villa in Haines City

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay at Mick and Alex's villa in Haines City. The villa was very spacious, lovely pool and everything we needed was provided for cooking and plenty of towels. Great games room, which the youngest grandson loved. Everything that was advertised. Felt in a safe environment as a gated community. Close to Walmart and Aldi for shopping. About 20-25 minutes to Magic Kingdom a little further to the Universal Parks. Good communication with the owners before departing and whilst in Orlando regarding the swimming pool heater being turned on. Thank you Alex and Mick for a lovely stay, would thoroughly recommend.

Very clean and spacious home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our stay and accommodated our family of 4 and our friend's family of 4, with plenty of room and we never felt crowded. The home provided towels, linens and even beach towels. The pool was warm and the hot tub was perfect (we did pay for heat). There were some blow up rafts and pool noodles that were in the garage and it was a nice extra for the kids to use. The home only provided one roll of toilet paper and paper towel, a small bottle of dish soap and one packet for one load of dishes. Luckily, I was prepared and had extras of these items or we would have had to go shopping within a day after checking in.

The owners were very responsive considering they are in England. The information they provided for check in was helpful but did not prepare me for the loud door alarm that went off as soon as I opened the door and I had to quickly scramble to find the alarm and turn it off before it timed out and called the police.

Our only trouble was trying to park our two larger vehicles in the driveway as it is small but we made it work.

We would rent the home again as it was a great value for the money and we felt right at home. It was a 30 minute drive to Universal Studios and a 15 minute drive to Disney.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the 5* review. Details regarding the alarm and the toilet rolls etc provided by our management company are contained within the guest instructions we sent to you prior to arrival. Following your comments we have improved the clarity of instructions for the alarm and will increase the basic provisions for larger parties. Many thanks for booking our villa.
