Contact with Phil and Anna prior to our trip was easy as all emails were promptly answered.

Villa was easy to find after a long journey from the UK, very clean and well maintained.

The facilities at the home and the level of comfort were more than expected. The lounge seating was extremely comfortable as were the beds. Storage was more than adequate and the pool furnishings were all as described.

The pool and hot tub were both used daily and sometimes trying to get the kids out of them was a challenge. The games room was also great for all of us and air hockey and basketball competitions ensued which were great fun.

We spent a day at Clearwater Beach, and found beach chairs and kids beach toys in the games room for our use which amused out little ones greatly.

Having a large Publix supermarket, 7eleven and Dunkin' Donuts only a minutes drive away meant that a large Slurpee and some Boston Creme donuts were always available.

We visited most of the parks and all were easily accessible from the villa as was Interstate4, Hwys 192 and 27 for restaurants and attractions. We would recommend both Chilis at Championsgate and Manny's Original Chophouse on Hwy 27 for excellent food and great atmosphere.

We would be happy to recommend this villa to friends and family and hope to return ourselves in 2011

Thanks to Phil and Anna for a wonderful base which was a large factor in the enjoyment of our holiday, Its FAB

Superb holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday here with our Grandchildren who made full use of the pool, games room and the Wii (competitions were held in the evenings). The villa had everything you could ask for and it was so handy for all the theme parks. On the rare occasions that the adults were not in the pool with the kids the area round the pool was perfect for relaxing while watching them swim. I would go back there in a heartbeat. Even the thunderstorms didn't put us off. Thanks Phil and Anna. XX

A Quiet retreat for a very busy holiday

  • 5 of 5

Contact with Phil was extremely easy, emails were answered promptly and once booked all information sent was clear, easy to understand and extremely useful especially as it was our first time in the USA.

The villa is set back away from any hussle and bussle and therefore noise.. It was extremely easy to find and not too far away from the I4 motorway which is perfect for all the theme parks etc.

It is extremely large with everything you would need for a great holiday, the only niggle was the lack of towels but as we took our own it didn't impact upon us. I have mentioned this to the owners and this has been rectified so I am told.

The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The lounge also although we didn't spend much time here, to be fair when we were in the Villa we were usually in the pool or hot tub. the water was clean and warm and not overlooked, we even had our own pet Geko for the week. Interesting seeing the wildlife, great for the kids.

The games room was well equipped and enjoyed by the children.

I think we only used the kitchen once but it was large and had a lovely dining table, all the usual kitchen items were present although maybe a pizza tray would be nice.

The air conditioning was most welcome upon returning each day as the heat was relentless 41 degrees for the most part.

All in all we had an absolutely amazing holiday and really didn't want to leave, 8 days wasn't enough, if I could go back tomorrow I would!!!

thank you Phil and Anna.

Fantastic home-from-home in the sunshine state

  • 5 of 5

Robbins Retreat was just the perfect place for us. It was clean, comfortable and child-friendly. The kids loved the games room and the pool and can't understand why we don't have these back home in Scotland! The location was superb, close enough to the parks to get there in 15-20 min, yet far enough away to be totally relaxing. The Lake behind the villa is just gorgeous and we all enjoyed watching the Floridian wildlife from the back garden. Finally, Phil and Anna were extremely helpful hosts and their hints, tips and directions were invaluable. i would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends, family or those reading this review.

First Villa Holiday. Fantastic!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Robbins Retreat is Spacious enough to accommodate 6 adults with ease. It was larger than expected. Air conditioning was very welcome after the very hot days around the parks,but the pool area was lovely & warm with enough seating for everyone. We sat very early in the morning with our cups of tea watching & listening to the wildlife. Butterflies,tiny lizards & frogs,a squirrel would visit most mornings, & the hot air balloons. You are not overlooked at all in the villa which makes you feel very private. If you were back from the parks early enough the sunset were amazing. We did see some interesting thunderstorms as well. In the living room the sofas reclined & the chair reclined & rocked absolute bliss.

We ate in, mainly for Breakfast or take away,but Ponderosa or Sizzlers were our favorites. Again there was more than enough cutlery,crockery,glasses and cups. We loved the fridge/freezer,well stocked from the near by Publix supermarket,which sold everything you can imagine,also a DvD rental,pharmacy,bakery,deli. In the Same area was a Liquor store,hairdressers,tanning salon,Subway,Dry-cleaners, 10 mins away max.

The Laundry was well used,6 adults & very hot days. Our bathroom,bedroom & walk in closet was so spacey. We stored six cases in it & there was still plenty of room. Storage again was ample. We didn't have much time or energy to use the Games room, a good variety of things to do in there.

The Villa is a ideal location for touring & visiting all the theme parks. 15-20mins to the Disney parks. Universal studios 40-45mins. Seaworld 15-20mins Busch Gardens,we took the complimentary coach, 1hr15. We did drive to Clearwater Beach,but we had booked a coach & missed the pick up (our Fault) I would highly recommend driving 1hr 3/4. On a coach you have a set time to do things if you go by your own steam you can come and go as you please, highly recommend the Sea Screamer,we had 8 Dolphins following us and the beach/Sea is gorgeous, Quite a straight forward drive.Our coach pick ups were nearby from lakeside Maingate hotel,very easily organised. We did go to the Pirate Show on International Drive. It was terrible....NOT recommended at all. Cirque du Soleil show FANTASTIC & the live music and night life is a must.

I would like to Thank Phil & Anna Mutch for helping us have the most fantastic time in Florida. We have been five times now and I really wish we had used this lovely Villa instead of Hotels. We want to come back asap. Everything was perfect.

Owner's Response: Anna and I would like to say a big thank you for writing a lovely review of your recent experience at our Floridian holiday home Robbins Retreat. One of the reasons we bought this house was the location and the huge variety of wild life that frequents the area. We find it so relaxing to sit outside, next to the pool, for breakfast - a great way to start the day. Hopefully you found time to make the most of the pool and hot tub - an excellent way to unwind after a day at the parks. Thank you again for such kind words - Phil & Anna
