Guestbook comments from the owner

Thankyou for returning the £100 security deposit so promptly. We had a super holiday, enhanced by our stay in your beaufiful Villa, which was extremely comfortable and contained everything we needed. We were also very impressed with the service and information you provided. We would certainly recommend your Villa to Family & friends and would not hesitate in using it again in the future. Thankyou for letting us use your lovely home! AG (Weston-Super Mare). We had a fantastic time there. The pictures on the website do not do your Villa justice!! Its fantastic, and we would certainly be interested in renting again in the future. We did call your Management Company out earlier last week as there seemed to be a problem with the pool heating. They were very efficient and sorted the problem in no time. AS (Essex). It was very peaceful and exactly what we needed. My wife did not think the photo's of the pool did it justice. We hope to stay at your Villa again in the future. RR (Tamworth)

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful! Very spacious. There were 5 adults and plenty of room for all of us. This property is clean and just as pictured. The pool area is very nice. My son fixed one of the fishing rods & both boys really enjoyed caching fish in the ocean ;-). We traveled to many beaches and when spring break was over, the traffic really lightened up. Definitely a memorable experience and we will stay here again.

Thank You!

Not an ideal location

  • 2 of 5

Your home was very spacious and clean. The location was too far from beaches and restaurants. When in Florida I am used to staying on the beach or a short walk away from the beach.

Owner's Response: We are pleased you thought the home was spacious and clean but saddened you did not like the location. We have always been open and honest regarding the Villa location. We have made it clear to anyone reading the property description that the Villa is located approx. 25 minutes from the Beaches. This information is included in the first three lines of the Property description There is also a location tab on the website, which when selected will clearly show the location of the Villa. We also send guests a local area map to give them an even better idea of the location and distance from shops and restaurants. We accept and understand some people wish to be located adjacent to Beaches, shops and Restaurants which is why we make it clear where our Villa is located. To any future guests - please click on the location tab on the website and read the full property description which does specify distance from Beaches. We have no desire to mislead any prospective guests regarding the location and as you will see from all previous reviews - all guests have liked the peaceful location. We are always happy to answer any questions or queries from prospective guests before they commit to booking.

Perfect for kids!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 adults and 2 kids, ages 6 & 8. The pool was used almost non stop when we were at the house. The house was just as pictured. The lake was closer than it appeared, which we all enjoyed. We were able to watch the birds and Ozzie visited everyday. The beach was about 25-30 minutes away. The cable was decently user friendly. The subdivision was almost silent. The house had everything we needed. We could have used a few more towels, but we swam or were at the beach several times a day. The master bathroom could use some grab bars and floors can get very slick. I would come back in a heartbeat!!!

The villa at Regal Oaks was very clean and well kept.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the villa, and the area of Regal Oaks which is very pleasant. The view of the lake and the wild life was very relaxing. We thought it was so nice to relax on the rear porch in the evening with a glass of wine. The swimming pool was very good. There are some nice beaches that are not to far from the villa but a car is a must. Overall our stay at villa made our holiday most enjoyable.

The villa was very clean,spacious and very homely and well equipped. T

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. My wife and I shared the master bedroom and my children had the twin room. We all agreed the beds were very comfy to sleep in. The lounge area was relaxing enough whilst watching the TV. The pool area was perfect for a family of 4 with a nice pool also. The kitchen had all the appliances needed to make life as easy as possible also.

We didnt watch TV much due to the fairly unresponsive and confusing cable system but this wasnt really a problem as we were busy most days and evenings anyway. Overall I have recommended the villa and the area to friends and would certainly visit again.
