About the Owner

Thank you for looking at our villa. If you wanted to see more of the villa you can view it through a 360 degree DVD virtual tour on our website. We are Gill and Danny we have been married for 35 years, we have 3 children, 1 son and 2 daughters who have all been lucky enough to visit Florida now since 1995 when we were all a lot younger! However it doesn't matter how old we all are we all still thoroughly enjoy going over as a family even my elderly father has been with us over the years and thoroughly enjoyed the contrast that our villa offers by relaxing around the pool in the tranquil surroundings of Tower Lake and then visiting the theme parks and be amongst the hustle & bustle all the well known Disney parks. We aso have two Siameese cats.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This experience was perfect. The house was as pictured BUT better. All four of us had a great time and took advantage of the pool and hot tub at all hours of the day.

A lovely property in an ideal location for us

  • 5 of 5

The profile description was very accurate with regard all aspects of the villa and location. The villa was spacious and very clean and tidy.

The booking process was very easy and the owners very helpful throughout. This was a great property and I would recommend this property whole heartily.

You do need a car as it is a 40 minute drive from Orlando airport and all attractions are some distance away. This was perfect for us as it was out of the way on a gated development with a massive lake. Hains City (near by) offers a number of restaurants and supermarkets and so you won't go hungry. We went to Mannys three times - great food, great people and very busy but get a drink or two sit outside or at the bar and wait for a table (can't book) - it is worth the wait.

We visited Wet and wild, Aquatica, the two Universal parks, Busch gardens, Sea world and CoCo Beach. We had a great time in all but I would miss out Wet & Wild and just go to Aquatica as W&W does seem a little dated (it is closing this year). If you can afford it get the 'fast passes' at Universal as you'll have more fun - endless queuing is not fun and we did go at the busiest time of year.

Great vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time. The house was clean and cozy. My disabled uncle was able to get around the house with no problems. Close to restaurants and grocery stores. Would stay there again.

Nice vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this home. The house was very well maintained and clean. We didn't have any issues at all while staying there. There is a few fast food resturants located nearby that the owner doesn't list (mcdonalds, wendys, checkers, zaxby's, and subway) Also there is another grocery store nearby Winn-Dixie and a Dollar tree. It took us 25 to 30 mins to get to all the Disney parks each day we stayed which in our opinion wasn't bad because it was all highway. The only con that my family had was that they owner needs to update the televisions in the home which are extremely outdated and small. My son brought his playstation 4 to hook up and was only able to do so in the living room. Not a con just a heads up - the front bedroom stays warmer than any other part of the house and its because the sun shines on that room most of the day, but they do have a fan available in the home. Overall our stay was wonderful and I would recommend staying here.

Relaxing and Homely

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this villa. Rooms were very clean, the beds and pillows were the most comfortable i have ever slept on!

En Suite Bathroom in the master bedroom was spacious with his and her sinks.

Friendly and helpful security staff, at the gated community. There is a lake at the end of the community and we would often go for a morning stroll to the beautiful lakeside before breakfast.

There is a laundry room with a washing machine and tumble dryer which we made the most. The open plan living room and kitchen was great in the night as we could all socialise together after a long day at Disneyland.

Walmart is located around the corner which is great for a browse and for all of your groceries. Restaurants are not far we spent most of our time at Chillis and Appleby's (very good portions). All in all, i would stay again at this beautiful Calabay Parc, Tower Lake villa!

We had lovely drives from the Villa to various theme parks and explored other communities.

The villa has it's own Jacuzzi and Pool, some days we would just chill around the poolside. A perfect place to stay!!!

From the Owner

We bought our villa after visiting Florida many times over a period of years, during these visits we stayed in both hotels and villas and really enjoyed the freedom and space that staying in a villa offered. So much so, that we decided to invest in buying one ourselves so that we could go as often as we wanted and also be able to offer other guests like yourselves the opportunity of sharing our beautiful villa with other families. The locality of the villa is fantastic with many famous golf courses within easy access, Florida hospital and a local Walk in Centre is approx 6-10 minute drive away, supermarkets, pharmacists, cinemas, restaurants, fast foods are all within close proximity to our villa. Our villa is also 8 mins drive away from the New Lego Land theme park.

Activity and Interests

Car: necessary

Special interest holidays:

For those guests that like fishing there is a very large lake at the bottom of the community where you can sit on the jetty, relax and fish for sea bass and other fish. For those of us that love that bit of retail therapy whilst on holiday what better place to experience it is here in Florida there are a variety of Malls in different directions from the villa, outlet centres which sell all of the designer fashions at cut down prices, as well as the large retail park (Posen Park) at the end of the Highway 27 about 6 minute drive from the villa which is growing all the time with new complexs opening each time we go out. The community also has a recently built club house which is going to have a fitted gym but to date is not quite ready - watch this space. All the theme parks are within easy reach to the villa and a variety of these and how to get there, book, opening times for each season etc can be accessed on our website.


The nearest beach is Daytona Beach which will take about 30 mins. The Atlantic coast is one hours drive to the East, where you will find Coca Beach and Cape Canaveral. Similarly, the Gulf coast is also one hour's drive to the West. Here you can experience the beautiful beaches of Clearwater/St Pete and the city of Tampa where you can also have a fun day at Busch Gardens Adventure Park. Those more adventurous may want to take a relaxing drive to Miami sign posted 200 miles away.


The villa is just 30 mins from Orlando Airport and approximately 45 from Sanford airport. The pleasure in driving to Calabay Parc at Tower Lake is the straightforward directions. You come out of either one of the airports and straight onto the Interstate 4 (therefore, no turning off and getting lost!). The local shops are 2 mins away in a car eg Walmart, 24 hour supermarket, and Walgreen's (large pharmacy), restaurants and cinema. Hiring a car is essential to get the most from your stay.


Theme parks are one of the main reasons why holiday makers visit Orlando. Just 6 miles south on the US27 from the Interstate 4 you can be at the gates of Disney around 15 minutes missing all the traffic on the busy 192. Universal Studios and Island of Adventure will take approximately 25 minutes, Sea World 20 minutes, Cypress Gardens Adventure Park 10 minutes. Those wanting to visit Kennedy Space Centre will be there within an hour.

Further Details:

Our exclusive villa which is newly built in 2007 is situated in a ‘Gated Community’ in the tranquil surroundings of Calabay Parc at Tower Lake. Tower Lake is the sister community to Calabay Parc and is proving to be just as popular. Being gated allows only those staying at Tower Lake access to the community and our villa of which you will be given a pass code for security gates. when you pass through the automated security gates. Tower Lake is a quiet new exclusive development with its own boating ramp and fishing jetty and is particularly popular for catching bass and other types of fish swimming around Tower Lake. Tower Lake boasts the ideal retreat and recreation area after a busy day at the parks. There are plenty or shops to buy fresh or frozen food for that lunch you have been planning around the pool. A large pharmacy (Walgren's) why use your weight allowance with items you can buy in America for example sun creams, aftersun lotions, shampoo, conditioner, all your cosmetics, hair accessories etc allowing you extra room in your case for those bargains that you can purchase from the new Posner Park which is a large outlet shopping centre about 7 minute drive from the villa with a variety of restaurants to suit everybody and a cinema. The list of things to do and activities are endless and too many to put into words. You need to come and experience them yourselves.
