About the property

Villa in Calabay Parc at Tower Lake, Haines City, Orlando, Florida - Less Than 20 Mins To Disney World And Legoland

Our beautiful villa is in a quiet location on the lakeside development of Calabay Parc at Tower Lake, a gated community with 24/7 security guard. The villa can comfortably sleep 8 people in 4 bedrooms, two of which have en-suite bathrooms. It is an ideal area, being close to all amenities (including a 24 hour Wal Mart) and the theme parks, yet the lake gives the development a peaceful and tranquil feel. The villa has a south facing pool and spa, is fully air-conditioned and has all the facilities you could need, including upgraded cable TV, flat screen TVs in all rooms, DVD and CD players and wireless broadband, so you can work on your laptop whilst sitting round the pool! We've also installed a PS3 in the den so the kids can amuse themselves whilst the adults relax.

We have invested in extensive planting around the rear of the villa to give added privacy and create a real sense of tropical Florida.

We pride ourselves on maintaining our villa to a very high standard, and visit at least once a year to ensure everything is in order, and replace any broken or missing items.

About Nigel Tompkins

Paula and I live in England with our disabled cat. We are big fans of the US way of life, culture and people, and had spent many holidays there before deciding to buy our villa in central Florida.

We have since become baseball fans as well, and sometimes go to Tampa to see the Rays play at Tropicana Field. If you've never been to a baseball game before we can thoroughly recommend it.

Nigel Tompkins purchased this villa in 2006

Why Nigel Tompkins chose Haines City

The south west of Orlando, particularly the outskirts of Haines City, is a popular area for holiday makers and is benefitting from a lot of new amenities.

The villa is close enough to get to all the major attractions easily, but far enough away that you're not caught up in the hustle and bustle.

We feel that the development of Calabay Parc at Tower Lake is a little bit more prestigious than some of the other communities, and the fact that we have the large lake right on our doorstep also helps.

What makes this villa unique

We enjoy the space in the villa, and we're certainly glad that we opted for the jacuzzi upgrade when we bought the house. You can't beat 20 minutes in the tub at the end of a long day in the theme parks!

I'm also a keen golfer so I get to play at least three different courses each time we visit. There is a huge choice of courses within 20 minutes of the villa.

The 24 hour Wal Mart nearby is a god send - you can pop in there day or night for anything you've forgotten to pack.

Relaxing Villa

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 18 nights in total after being on an 8 day Caribbean cruise in November . Our first impression when we arrived was villa looked small until we opened the door--what a very pleasant surprise . Villa was very spacious & roomy. It had a nice homely feel to it. Everything one needed in the kitchen was there to hand.Great space in both master bedroom & other double room. We liked the idea of two living room areas supplied with a television in each- very suitable for two families. We loved the pool area, even though pool was on the small side it was ample for our party of four. It was a very private area with nobody looking in & of course the hot tub was a huge bonus( we loved it for relaxing). I must say that any problems we had were attended to promptly by the management company & sorted without any issue.We found shops like Walmart & Target very accessible & reasonably close by. We found the website for the villa really really good with everything in it one needed to know. Also very useful & well documented folders in the villa were well thought out. We would have no hesitation in recommending the villa to guests of all ages. We would love to stay there again. G& C McCoy

Spacious, Quiet, Fantastic Vacation Villa

  • 5 of 5

We were very fortunate to spend nine days in this vacation villa. The location was great, as we were only about 20 minutes from Disney and Universal where we spent most of our days. After spending all day in a crowded location with the six members of my family, it was an oasis to come home to for the evening meal and down time in our space. Whether we wanted to swim or relax in the hot tub, play on the PS3 in the den, play pool or foosball in the game room, or spend time reading on the king sized beds in the bedroom, we were able to do so very comfortably. The house was clean and well taken care of, and we had all that we needed. If we didn't, stores were close by and easily accessible. I would highly recommend this property for anyone traveling to Florida and needing a place to stay. Much better value than a hotel-both economically and on a comfort level. Using the Home Away app was an added benefit to renting this villa. It made finding the property so easy. Thanks for a great vacation!

Everything you want

  • 5 of 5

Everything from booking to checking out was a breeze! The owner and the property manager are wonderful! I made it a point to write this review because we were so happy with our stay. This house is beautifully taken care of. It was big enough for my family of 4 plus my mother and sister and her friend. That is a total of 7 people. I was continuously surprised at how they thought of everything. We actually just spent one whole day at this house during our vacation because everything we needed was already there.

There is a game room for adults and kids. Also a PS3 which has some pretty fun games for everyone. My son loved the game system. The pool is well maintained and chairs enough for everyone. They also had a bin with floaties to use. The grill was awesome! The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need if you are going to be cooking or baking. TV's in every room. The only thing that took us a day to figure out was the tv in the living room. one we figured it out it was good. I can't wait to stay here again. I also want to mention that this is a gated community which I was so incredibly happy about. The people in the guard office were always really nice.

Clean, safe and well maintained villa

  • 5 of 5

I was even nervous about the whole online. This was my 1st time staying with my family of 4 and another family of 4. It was a clean and well maintained property with lots of amenities and everything you can expect , "Totally home-away from home". Sadly I was not home to enjoy much of it. and we did had some issues with the WIFI which was disappointing to us. Dealing with he owner and payment was secure and I was totally and everything that he says its true. We really enjoyed the pool, it is a huge property and the kids enjoyed the games room! Lovely lake and secure neighborhood, which we felt safe. The Singh's family…..Canada!
