Great Villa for relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in a great location for easy access to most areas of Orlando and its parks.

Claire was very quick to respond to our initial enquiry and any other questions we had. She provided plenty info upfront of our trip and the welcome pack when we arrived was perfect.

We consider ourselves to be fairly regular visitors to Orlando and the villa was one of the nicest we have stayed in and would have no hesitation in either revisiting it or recommending it to friends.

Great family villa, fab pool area and spa.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family holiday here. The villa was in a great location with easy access to Disney and restaurants and a Publix only 5mins away. Claire was great and gave us all the info we needed about the villa.

When we arrived there was milk, juice and butter in the fridge and bread, jam and coffee- so nice after a long flight day-thanks!

The villa was immaculate and beautifully furnished and had everything we needed and more.

The pool and spa were fantastic and we spent our rest days enjoying the sun all day enjoying the beautiful lakeside view.

We ordered pizza one night from Papa Johns which was really good too and we tried Millers Ale House at Champions gate which we all enjoyed and not too far away but The Longhorn for steak is our favourite!!

The kids really liked the games room especially the air hockey and pool table.

We wouldn't hesitate to book this villa again if we are lucky enough to go back to Florida.

Lovely villa, great area with gorgeous view. Just what we were looking for.

  • 4 of 5

Villa was great and Claire was a pleasure to deal with. Everything was as we hoped and the villa management company and neighbours were on hand if we needed anything. We had a slight problem with the air con one day but the management company were great and had an engineer out within 30 minutes. 20 minutes from Disney, safe neighbourhood and Papa Johns pizza delivered so all good! Will definatly book again 😀?

Great villa, good location and very clean and furnished to a high standard. Pool area is brilliant.

  • 5 of 5

Had a brilliant 2 weeks at the villa. Close to all amenities and attractions. Villa is beautifully furnished and well equipped. We travelled as 2 families, 4 adults and 3 children, who thoroughly enjoyed the pool and all the games room in the garage.

Would recommend this villa and would most definitely stay again. Thanks to Claire for a excellent service provided and very helpful.

Fantastic place to stay for Theme Parks & relaxing

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!
