Fantastic place to stay for Theme Parks & relaxing
This is our 3rd visit to Villa Mere View in the last 7 years and it is still a fantastic place to stay. It is close enough to all the Theme Parks but far enough away from all the hustle and bustle to be able to chill by the pool overlooking the lake on OUR rest days. The Villa is very spacious and very well furnished and has everything you need. The games room is an added bonus with air hockey, pool, darts and table football to keep everyone amused. And the pool with jacuzzi is a fantastic place to wind down after the parks. Although we have never met Claire the owner in person, she has always been a pleasure to deal with and we would have no hesitation in recommending her lovely Villa, but perhaps we should keep this special place quiet for ourselves :-) We love it here and will be back again soon.
Can't rate highly enough, fab villa!
When it came to choosing where to stay in Florida we didn't really know where to start. We'd never been before and weren't actually coming to do Disney and Universal so that in itself made it quite tricky to choose what was best as most people who have been to Florida only go for the parks so no one could really give much advice if the big parks weren't on your agenda. Anyway we searched for hours and Google Street-viewed areas and distances to shops and restaurants etc and eventually stumbled across this little gem! It was everything we wanted and more.
I called Claire as I wanted to know there was actually a real person connected to the property as having not used Owners Direct before we were a little apprehensive about the whole thing but she was very friendly and helpful and after that we completely relaxed about booking with them.
When we arrived at the villa it was just as the photos, only far better. Every room was nicely decorated and clearly the place is well looked after. All the rooms are well decorated and the garage as a games room was a big plus and there was plenty of toys/lilo's for the pool.
The view of the pool and the lake behind is just lovely and my favourite thing was to be up early and having a swim with the sun coming up before breakfast.
We did have to call the Management Company as when we arrived a storm had affected the phone & wifi but we called and it was fixed almost immediately.
A fun thing we did was go to Old Town Kissimmee, not that far away, as on Friday, Saturdays and Sundays they have various car shows, Friday's being Muscle cars, a great outing for all the family. We also went to Silver Moon Drive-in cinema, this was quite a drive, around 45 minutes I think but was well worth it and the cheapest thing to do for a whole family. $5 an adult and $1 for a child. We saw Finding Dory, and it was a great way to see it.
We just can't rate this place highly enough and are still raving about it to anyone that will listen. Hopefully we will be back to stay again soon!
Beautiful villa .... Home from home
Beautiful villa with everything you could possibly need. Lovely pool to relax in and look at the views over the lake after a long day in the parks. Its ideal to be away from the hustle and bustle of international drive and the parks yet still be close enough to enjoy them. The villa is ideally located near everything you need like supermarkets, petrol stations, restaurants, pharmacy etc. We would defiantly recommend staying in this lovely villa and would love to stay there again.
Great Villa, great location.
We have just got home from staying in this lovely villa, and wish we were still there. It has everything you could possibly need and more. Located in a lovely area only 5 mins drive from the nearest supermarket and only 20 mins from Disney and 30 mins from Universal. It was great being able to retreat to this lovely villa after a long day at the parks and relax in the Jacuzzi or just chill out watching the TV. It really was like a home from home.
We had a wonderful two week holiday in this fantastic villa. Has everything you could possibly wish for when visiting Orlando. Close to all the parks and attractions in a beautifully maintained estate.
The villa is immaculate inside and out. The pool and jacuzzi look over a beautiful lake. We have stayed here a number of times and everytime we visited it feels as if nobody else has stayed since we left... It's that clean and well maintained.
Couldn't have asked for a better experience with the owner. Just a lovely person to speak with giving you confidence throughout booking.
The best way I can describe I thoughts on this villa is. When ready to go after our days out we didn't say "let's go back to the villa" we said lets go "home"
Indeed it is a beautiful home
We had a fantastic family holiday in Florida made all the better by staying in this beautifully furnished and well equipped villa! The owners had left some goodies for us including a bottle of wine, water, ice pops etc. which added to the welcoming atmosphere exuded in this villa. The outlook to the rear over a small lake and beyond to a wooded area made the outdoor space and pool feel even more spacious. We have already recommended the villa to family and friends and if you are looking for a beautifully furnished and well equipped villa which is close to all the attractions but offers that feel of a semi rural setting then look no further than this villa! Enjoy, we did!
