About the Owner

My wife and I are both retired, my wife Jill was a nurse and I was a company director with our family firm, I worked with the company for over 30 years, we live in Thatcham Berkshire and we have been in the same house since 1978, we tend to go to Florida at least twice a year, and I must say when we walk through the front door it's as good as the very first time.

FANTASTIC, SPACIOUS PROPERTY IN LOVELY GATED COMMUNITY

  • 5 of 5

The property is very impressive from the outside, it has a large private drive, plenty of space to park your big SUV!

The outdoor space at the rear of the property is fantastic, well maintained and has plenty of space/seating to entertain i.e. to use the large BBQ which has been provided or to just escape the teens and cool down in the well maintained pool/spa area. (nice touch).

There is also a laundry room/games room that the kids enjoyed using before heading out to the parks.

The villa was very clean and tidy on our arrival and there is an ensuite shower/bathroom with every bedroom(4) which is essential for large parties.

It has been a pleasure dealing with Mr Hutt and nothing was ever too much trouble and his correspondence was very quick- I would highly recommend this owner and property- 10 out of 10!

Lovely, comfortable private villa - home from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family holiday in Florida and we couldn't have asked for better from this beautiful villa! The pool/jacuzzi area was perfect and together with the BBQ and games room we spent some good quality fun time there when we weren't out and about at the Theme Parks. Automatic air conditioning was also a great luxury....we had quite a hot and sticky fortnight so the air-con was well needed. The villa had almost everything we needed - just a shame there weren't a few dish cloths and extra tea towels and some UK adaptors available for use but these were just very minor things which we coped with by purchasing our own. Conveniently located for Disney parks, all within 20-30 minutes drive along the I4. Would definitely recommend.

Thank you Robert and family for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

Fabulous five star villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this villa and it was just as good as we remembered it, a beautiful villa, private and very well appointed with nice furnishings. We had great weather whilst there and made use of the pool and Jacuzzi every day, usually out till early afternoon then back to relax, eat, swim and have a few glass’s on the lovely deck area. Certainly when we return to Orlando we would not hesitate to book this villa again if it was available.

Great Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice well equipped Villa situated that little bit away from the noise and bustle of those on the 192 or near International Drive, but we didn't find it too far to make the usual Disney trips etc.

Everything was as described in the Villa and we were very pleased.

I want to also add a special not to both the Villa Owners and the Management company, who were very helpful and responsive to every query we put towards them.

I would definitely consider staying here again!

A small note: The Villa is actually the first Villa as you come through the gate on the community, which I think would be wise to put on the directions, as American house numbers are a little confusing. We drove all around the commune until we realised.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for that, when we get great reviews such as this it give's a sense of achievement, we like to give our guests the feeling that it is "home from home" holiday's to the US can be a holiday of a lifetime so we strive to add that extra bit of sparkle.

Lovely villa in Watersong

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa in February 2014 for one week following several nights at Key West and Sarasota. Having visited Florida on numerous previous occasions we had purchased a satnav so had no problems finding the villa, however without a satnav the villa is easy to find following the full directions given by the owners.

Although the location appears to be some way from the main attractions on a map, in reality it is well placed for all venues. Being close to junctions on the interstate, mainly via Champions Gate, it is easy to visit Universal Studios or Disney, on most occasions the journey via the interstate was quicker than driving the alternative roads. It is also well placed for trips to the Gulf Coast resorts such as St Pete’s or Tampa as well as the opposite coast for Cape Canaveral or Daytona. It is also easy to drive the back road through Kissimmee up the Orange Blossom Trail to the Florida Mall.

The villa is beautifully maintained and very well equipped including a barbeque. The pool area is very private, only one villa to the side which was some distance away, much further than other villas we have stayed at, and nothing at the rear other than grass, bushes and trees. We had pool heating in February which proved very efficient, the Jacuzzi when in operation took all the heated water first which made it lovely and warm even late at night for enjoying with a glass of bubbly. Inside it is apparent the owners visit themselves and you can see personal touches such as the nice curtains. Bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable, one being on the ground floor for anyone who has difficulty with stairs.

Publix supermarket is closeby, at Champions Gate, as is McDonalds and various other shops. A Super Walmart is somewhat further on the 27 or on the 192, the driving is very easy there so not a problem getting around. We enjoyed the breakfasts at Perkins, the pancake stack with Blueberry sauce keeps you going all day. Appleby’s is another favourite and they often have early bird offers. Other favourites are the Olive Garden on the 192 and the Sweet Tomatoes on the Universal end of International drive which is an all you can eat salad bar with soups, breads and help yourself to soft serve ice cream. Whilst up that end of International Drive it’s always worth a visit to the Bass Pro shop for anyone who fishes, boats, walks or generally enjoys outdoor stuff, just keep away from the guns section which is extensive!!!

I would certainly recommend this vill

Owner's Response: Thank you for a fantastic review, as owners we like to ensure our guests are not disappointed with anything that the Villa offers, we go there ourselves every year to make sure everything is correct, although we have a fantastic management team it is nice to make our own inspection,

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We've been Florida renters for many years & found this villa to be one of the very best. That is one of the reasons why we continue to rent this place year after year. It's located in a lovely, private, gated community. Great private location for a family, but near enough to all that Central Florida offers....Disney, Busch Gardens, Universal Studios, Sea World, water parks, mini-golf, flea market bargains....and our favorite, Old Town Kissimmee. Plenty of grocery stores nearby & restaurants on 192 as well as Haines City. We love the fact that each bedroom in the villa has it's own private full bathroom & there is a bathroom right off the pool deck, which is so convenient for kiddies & adults alike. The owners (Rob & Jill) are a delight to do business with and the company managing his property is both courteous and efficient. We find the villa and pool very clean upon our arrival and it's obvious the owners insure the place is maintained properly inside and out. A terrific outdoor grill and comfortable outside seating have given us some great evenings by the pool.

Location

From the Owner

We viewed quite a few property's in that area, but what appealed to us about Watersong was the unspoilt conservation area around the Villas, we particularly picked the corner plot because we had a south facing pool, looking on to pine trees, thick vegetation, and a lake, so you are not over looked, and after a busy day with the children at the theme parks mum and dad can sit by the pool and light up the gas B.B.Q. (again not overlooked,) with a nice steak, and glass of wine just looking out to the wild life and pine trees and feel totally relaxed, or spend time in the warm spa. also you have the full use of the club house completely free, with it's gym, cyber café, and coffee lounge,

Activity and Interests

Travel:

The 3 main airports to use are Orlando international, Sanford and Tampa, all close to the villa. It is highly recommended that you hire a car whilst staying at our Villa, there is plenty of parking space on the drive.

Distances:

The I-4 is only a few minutes away from Watersong, and is the gateway to all that Orlando has to offer, Disney is about 20 minutes away, Sea World approx 25-30.

Further Details:

If you are into classic American machines then Old town Kissimmee has it all. Thursday night is Bike night, Friday and Saturday night is Classic Car night, great show.
