Villa near Walt Disney World Orlando on largest lot with (private) heated pool



Updated: 21-Oct-2016
Near Walt Disney World, Sea World and other theme parks, near golf resorts

This 2-storied villa, which sits on one of the largest lots of the community, underwent a total make over when we bought it in 2008. It has totally been refurbished into a beautiful furnished high quality home. In the Fall of 2014 we put in new carpet, we repainted all the bathrooms, pooldeck and driveway to give it a whole new look again. You can sit and relax on the leather couch while enjoying a movie on the 32 inch TV or surf the WIFI high-speed internet which is available.

When all this is not enough, out in the back your own private (heated) screened-pool is waiting for you. The modern kitchen is equipped with everything you need to cook, stove, microwave, oven, fridge, dishwasher and all utensils you may expect, attached is a separate utility room with washer and dryer. Upstairs you will find 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms: A kingsize en-suite master bedroom and a queen-size en-suite master bedroom both that have a 26'LCD TV. The family sized bathroom will be shared by two twin bedrooms, both with two twin beds each. Outside there is ample parking.

For the kids:: When you bring children there is a WII available.

Safety issues: All rooms are provided with smoke-alarm detectors. The sliding-door has a safety lock, out of reach for small children. The pool is provided with a safety-fence. 2 Fire-extinguishers (up- and downstairs). 2 Phones (up- and downstairs).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We could not have chosen a better place to stay for our week long trip to Disney and Universal. The house is very spacious and beautifully appointed as well. As a family of four we were in very close proximity to all of the parks and restaurants in the area. It seemed as if we were missing the traffic jams traveling to and from the parks from this location as well. Perfect Stay!

The villa was spacious and luxurious

  • 5 of 5

We arrived tired but were immediately uplifted once we opened the front door! The villa was spacious, luxurious, and had everything that we could possibly want. The master bedroom and en suite bathroom were fabulous. When we weren't enjoying the pool, we watched some tv and played the wii with games provided. A car is needed - however the drives are short (10-15min) to Disney World and attraction parcs alike. We ventured to Kennedy Space Centre, an easy 80 minute drive, and to the beaches on the west coast, Clearwater particularly was beautiful - the drive took 90 minutes. I would definitely recommend staying here, and we hope to return!

Wonderful stay at Villa van der Laan

  • 5 of 5

From the moment this holiday was booked, the owners Bram and Sylvia had everything under control. All contact was useful and they ensured we had all the information we needed to make our stay enjoyable.

When we arrived at Villa van der Laan, it was very clean and had absolutely everything that we could need for our stay (air conditioning, kitchen utensils, laundry facilities etc). The beautiful pool was the icing on the cake - my two small children loved it. Bedrooms were extremely comfortable, with plenty linen and towels for changing.

The location of the villa (Sandy Ridge) is ideal - a short drive to Disney sites (15 - 20 mins), with lots of eating and shopping options a short drive away. There is also a small kids play park 100 m or so away from the villa with plenty to keep younger children occupied (swings, slides etc).

The security deposit which was paid upon booking was returned promptly on return home without me even asking about it!

All in all, a wonderful base for a Disney holiday. Bram, Sylvia and the management company were good to deal with. Highly recommended! I am sure we will be back!

Bright and clean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 nights in June. We were 7 total, me & my husband, our daughter & son-in-law, & 3 grandsons aged 6,3 &1. We had plenty of space. Everything was clean & neat when we arrived. Grocery was only 1 1/2 miles away. Disney parks were about a 15 minute drive. Enjoyed our stay. Only minor complaint was temperature upstairs was a little warm. Solution for the future would be double pane windows instead of single upstairs. Temps outside were in the 90's so I am sure that was a factor too. Thanks for letting us use your house. We really enjoyed it & would stay again.

From the Owner

We purchased this villa in the summer of 2008 and totally refurbished it. We were looking for something near the Disney-area and this was exactly what we were looking for. Having lived here we exactly knew what we were looking for and in which area. Having all the attractions in the nearby area, Disney is only 10 minutes away, as well as many well-known golfcourses is what we wanted. For more info: www.villavanderlaan.com

A side that keeps you on the edge, at the verge of surrender, but not willing to forgo the emotional peaks and valleys of the challenge that lies ahead. (Toll Free: (866) 311-1234).
