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.

Spacious, Quiet, Fantastic Vacation Villa
About the Owner
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.

Spacious, Quiet, Fantastic Vacation Villa
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
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
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!
Well maintained, clean, beautiful villa.
We have been coming to Florida for the past 10 years and this is the best villa we have stayed at. We have had the most amazing time in a well looked after community as we have felt very safe with the nicest security guards. The villa itself exceeds every expectation we ever had, and the images shown on the website do it little justice of just how amazingly clean and well maintained the villa actually is. We have found the customer service from the owner has been to an extremely high standard with everything made to feel a lot easier in the process of booking this beautiful villa. We love going down to the lake first thing of a morning which is just a stroll away to do some fresh water fishing, which makes the holiday nice and relaxing which is a change from the hustle and bustle of going to all of the theme parks which we do love and enjoy very much but it is nice to have some down time, which we also get from relaxing next to your pool which is also well maintained and very clean. We would highly recommend this villa to our family and friends for everything it has provided us with. Me and my family have had one of the best holidays in Florida which this lovely villa has been a part of, we look forward to returning next year also bringing along our grandchildren. Thank you for letting us stay in this beautiful villa. The Gill family.
The best villa in florida
we have traveled to Florida 5 times before this holiday and find that staying in a villa is much better than hotel stays as you have a home to go to after a day at the parks. this villa has it all. when you pull up it looks clean and welcoming from the outside but when you walk in the size if the villa blew us away. (ITS HUGE) and will accommodate 8 adults easily with its 4 bedrooms. the villa has a games room with pool table and table football. it has a pool with a spa connected, the spa when switched on takes only 5 min to get up to 40 degrees. and the main pool temp is the warmest i have ever been in. seriously at 10pm its almost like getting into a bath (pure bliss) there is a safety fence around the pool so we were safe knowing our 15month year old couldn't get into the pool without us knowing. there is ample space for relaxing, a gas bbq as well. inside the villa is a tv with enough channels to keep anybody happy. if your from uk and a sports fan the 2 weeks we stayed they showed every premier league game live on saturday. yes 8 different channels. the villa is immaculately clean and we fell in love with it and didnt want to come home. the villa is in a private estate with security so no worrying about non residents wandering the streets. about 2 min drive away is a wallmart 24hr and also every fast food place you could think of. it is a 70min drive to busch gardens 80min to nasa and 25min disney 30min seaworld and 35min universal. its nice to be a little bit away from the parks as the petrol/gas is cheaper and the restaurants etc are less crowded. the kitchen has every pot pan and utensil you need, and its really refreshing to wash and dry all the clothes before you come home as you feel better not spending a day when you get home doing it all. i could go on forever about how nice this villa is, we go to florida ever 2 years and we have already decided to book this villa again.
From the Owner
“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.”

From the Owner
“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.”
