Overview

About the property

Peace & quiet, ideal for relaxation but within easy reach of main attractions

Our villa overlooks a golf course in a quiet residential area, away from the main tourist destinations (33 miles North of Tampa and 66 miles West of Orlando) - it is the ideal location for a quiet, relaxing holiday whilst still within easy driving distance of the main attractions. There is a large (28' x 14') heated swimming pool, a spacious lanai for outdoor living and an excellent beach just a 15 minute drive away. There are another 14 golf courses nearby - perfect for golf enthusiasts.

The international airport at Tampa is just 45 minutes away via the Suncoast Parkway, while the drive to Orlando takes 90 minutes. A wide variety of restaurants, shops and supermarkets can be found within a five or ten minute drive and Pine island beach is only 15 minuutes away. The whole area is wonderful for wild life - sit on the lanai and watch the birds feeding or adventure further afield and see manatees in the wild, alligators and much more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After a busy week at a hotel in Orlando we were looking forward to the warm welcome of our own exclusive villa for week two of our very own 'American Dream' holiday and upon entering our breath was literally taken away. This place has the warmth of a home and luxury you'd expect from a hotel. It has been an absolute find and we have enjoyed every second here.



It's a perfect base for exploring (St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Pine Island etc.) and the most magical way to spend a day next to the pool, in the sunshine (with a home made cosmo!) enjoying a beer and looking up to wonder at the wildlife - laugh at a squirrel and bird fight on top of the pool enclosure.



Liz and Ed, It's clear so much time and attention has been put into making this a home from home, it's just perfect! We are already thinking about coming back!



Thank you both for letting us enjoy your beautiful home.

The large (28' x 14') pool is heated with a heat pump (included in the price) and fitted with a (removable) child safety barrier. The sizable pool enclosure (50' x 22') and spacious lanai are ideal for outdoor living).

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This very beautiful place was very relaxing for me, my two daughters, and my husband. We had a wonderful time here and wished you could have had more time there. This house was close enough to Tampa that we drove there several days. This place really makes you feel at home. My daughters enjoyed having their own rooms and the pool. The pool was very clean and the landscaping was well taken care of. Me and my husband loved having the master bedroom separate from the kids. This gave us a little more private times then we would have had in a hotel. We can't wait to come back and stay at this house. Thank you so much for opening up your home to us! Looking forward to the next time we come!

Perfect home from home

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased on arrival,as we have stayed at other villas in Spring Hill, but this is far superior . We felt that we were in a property that was cared for and as stated home from home, well equipped with everything you could possibly need whilst you are staying .

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This property was a very pleasant surprise. I book a golf getaway at this time every year and I have found that Spring Hill is a really central home base. There is everything anyone could ever want close at hand. The property was immaculate which is on the top of my list, they provided anything that one would need to feel at home. From the inside of the house to the pool to the yard all was clean and neat. I have been disappointed in rentals before , not this time it was a highly polished diamond!

The best rental property ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best property that we have ever had the pleasure of renting, it was exceptionally clean and had every item that you could require in the kitchen, bathroom, lounge, pool and it even had a basketball hoop. The pool is perfect, in fact the only problem with this rental house is that you will not want to leave it to venture out.

Liz and Ed are perfect hosts, and we would love to visit again.

If you do manage to venture out, we loved Pine Island, and we saw lots of wildlife just swimming by, a Giant Sea Turtle and pods of dolphins were the highlight. We also swam with Manatee at Crystal River and that was great (but an early start). Perfect holiday in an American Dream - Thanks Liz and Ed.
