About the property

Large 6 bed / 4 bath detached villa at Glenbrook Resort sleeping up to 14 people

Enjoy the modern/contemporary look of our 6 BED 4 BATH home less than 9 miles from the parks at Walt Disney World Resort.

There are 3 king bedrooms, 2 of them en-suites master rooms, 6 twin beds and a sleeper sofa so we can comfortably sleep 14 guests – all bedrooms have their own TV.

For the kids, 2 of the twin bedrooms are themed - currently 'SPIDERMAN' and 'CARS' - and the garage has been converted into a GAMES ROOM with a slate-bed pool table and foosball together with a PlayStation 2.

We are also pleased to offer FREE high speed WIRELESS INTERNET.

Disney, Universal and Seaworld parks are all within easy travelling distance and when you need to recuperate for the next action packed day you can relax in front of the 52' LCD TV or soak up the Florida sunshine by your own SOUTH FACING PRIVATE POOL AND SPA surrounded by mature HIBISCUS shrubs for added privacy. TENNIS AND VOLLEYBALL COURTS are also available at the resort clubhouse.

Why a Holiday Home Instead of a Hotel?

- A luxurious, privately owned, villa provides you with the ideal opportunity to enjoy a home from home in one of the most action packed holiday destinations in the world

- You get more space than a hotel room at a lower cost per person

- Your family or group can live together under one roof with fully equipped kitchen, personal and convenience items

- Your own private pool, spa and relaxation areas

- A local professional managing agent to ensure high standards are maintained and for your assistance in case of need

- A perfectly located property whether you wish to experience the thrills and spills of the theme parks, face the challenge of one of the many golf courses or relax on one of Florida’s stunning beaches

Out & About - Theme Parks!

DISNEY World Parks are about a 15 minutes drive away (dependant on traffic)

A trip to Orlando would not be complete without a visit to Disney to meet Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and their friends. At Magic Kingdom you’ll find Cinderella’s Castle and Animal Kingdom provides one of the premier wildlife parks in the world. The Disney complex also includes Disney's Hollywood Studios, Epcot, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach – there’s something for everyone and if you love firework displays you'll be in the right place!

UNIVERAL Parks are about a 35 minutes drive away (dependant on traffic)

If you’re looking for thrills, the rides at Islands of Adventure and at Universal Studios will also get the blood pumping. Visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Jurassic Park and the new Skull Island: Reign of Kong and enjoy 3D rides like the Amazing Adventures of Spiderman and Despicable Me Minion Mayhem.

Water is also a major feature at the parks whether you enjoy the slides at Wet ‘n’ Wild or learning about the Florida wildlife at Seaworld – both in Orlando. Busch Gardens in Tampa (about a 90 minute drive) provides some huge adrenaline rushes - SheiKra carries riders up 200 feet stops over a vertical drop before hurtling them 70 mph back toward the ground at a 90-degree angle. Other rides include the Congo River Rapids, Jungle Flyers, Sand Serpent, Falcon's Fury and the new Cobra's Curse.

BEACHES - the coastlines of Florida are simply stunning and there are 2 to choose from!

Gulf of Mexico - 90 miles and about 90-110 minute drive

Saint Petersburg and Clearwater beaches are located on a beautiful peninsula on Florida's West coast and are bordered by the Gulf of Mexico to the west and by Tampa Bay to the east. Miles of white, fine-grained sandy beaches and sparkling waterways consistently ranked among the top beaches in Florida and the nation, Both areas offer activities and attractions for families, couples, and young people alike.

Space Coast – 79 miles and about a 90 minute drive

The area includes Titusville, Melbourne, and Cocoa Beach and is the home of the US space program.

The city of Titusville is home to Kennedy Space Center, which along with the Johnson Space centre in Houston, is the hub of NASA’s space exploration program.

The Space Coast is not just famous for space exploration - Cocoa Beach is well known as a destination for surfing, with the waves of the Atlantic Ocean offering many opportunities for surfers both expert and novice alike to enjoy.

About Rob Thornewell & Steve John

We're Rob and Steve and have been mates since we met at work a few years ago (well, a lot of years ago actually!) and decided to pool our resources and buy a villa at Glenbrook Resort close to Disney, Florida in 2005 and another at Windsor Hills Resort in 2006.

The climate, large properties and vastness of the open spaces of the Sunshine State really appealed to us along with a whole host of attractions in the area including, of course, the major theme parks and golf courses.

There is always something going on and always something to do.

Rob Thornewell & Steve John purchased this villa in 2005

Great Family Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 3 nights in this luxury villa. We had a fabulous time. Great place to come home to after a long day at the park. The kids really enjoyed the pool (which was very clean) and game room.

The family stayed this home for the weekend of my daughter s' double wedding. It accommodated everyone with plenty of room to spare. We had a problem with a television not working and reported it Saturday and someone arrived on Sunday morning to fix it. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a vacation home getaway.

Great house for large group

  • 5 of 5

We had 13 people stay at the house. With two living rooms, 6 bedrooms, game room and pool area, we all had plenty of room! It was nice having the comfort of a home and not hotel. We will be coming back in a few years and will hopefully rent the same place. The owners are great to work with too. They answered our questions with in 24 hours of sending emails.
