About The Owner


My name is Fred Douglass and I and my family have been coming to Florida for over 20 years.

Our first home is in the UK but after traveling extensively on vacations and through my work we have always loved and returned to Florida, such that in 2007 we decided to buy a new place of our own here which we use as a second home when commitments allow.

We target to rent our property out for about 20 weeks a year, this covers management costs but ensures that wear and tear on the property is kept to a minimum and helps to maintain the high standard of the Villa.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2007

Why The Owner chose Calabay Parc at Tower Lake

We have rented in numerous developments in this locality and on the coast over the years but were impressed with the original Calabay Parc and builder and so found what we feel is the ideal location and quality in the new Calabay Tower Lake gated community

The community is close enough to the main attractions, theme parks, shopping and great restaurants, but far enough away to quietly relax round the pool when you you want an easy day.

What makes this villa unique

A hotel does not compare in price, freedom or privacy that you have renting your own villa and ours is over 2800 sq. ft of living space with 5 bedrooms/4 bathrooms with more than enough room for a any size family.

The villa is furnished to a high standard and so allows you to enjoy your vacation in a little luxury

The villa has its own screened pool area which is a must for the summer and great to sit around in the evening with good food and company.

The best thing is the weather, which is free.

Wherever you stay we hope you enjoy Florida as much as we do, have a great vacation.

Large Home with Fantastic Pool in a safe community!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the villa for our family trip to Orlando for Wrestlemania, & Universal Studios. Frederick was attentive &responsive from my first email request booking, right through to the end of our trip. The villa is in safe gated community, great for evening walks! This home had more then enough room as there were just the 3 of us (2 adults&1 child). We did not even use the 2nd floor; We stayed on main level in both master suites. The beds were comfy (we like firm matresses), the villa kitchen came equipped with everything you need to eat in. (The only suggestion we would have is an addition of a bbq/outdoor grill). It was no issue as we drove to walmart (5min away), and bought a cheap charcoal one and left it there for the next family to enjoy. The pool and hottub were fantastic as we had a few "down days" to use them. We will definetly be booking this home again.😄? Thank you Frederick for opening up your vacation home to us, and for your kindness! Sofia, Brad & Tyson.

We Had A Very Relaxing 3 Week Stay In This Fantastic Villa. Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly relaxing and restful stay in Fred's wonderful 5 Bedroom 5* villa. We can not recommend this lovely place enough.

Beds are extremely comfortable.

It is equipped with everything you need and feels very spacious.

We were a party of 6 but it would definitely suit a party of 10 no problem.

The pool and jacuzzi are superb. We could have happily stayed at the villa for the full 3 weeks and not ventured out.

Fred the owner is absolutely fantastic and so so helpful with all information you will need.

Management company are also there at the end of a phone call should you need anything and are super quick to resolve anything to do with the villa. Pool lights were out for a day after a storm but we're fixed in no time. So it didn't really cause any disturbance to our holiday.

We will definitely be returning guests and look forward to staying again in the near future.

Thanks again to Fred for having us stay in your lovely home.

Kindest regards, Stella & family

Absolutely superb villa, perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

I don't really leave feedback but thought I should whilst waiting at airport for our flight. From early communication in enquiring about the villa to actual booking was very easy. Communication and confirmation of accommodation was key for us and stress free so we could confirm booking of our flights and park tickets, etc. Fred was brilliant in this process and explained any questions we had. The villa itself is very spacious and feel grand that is behind a gated community. There was only four of us in our family, mum and dad and two kids so the villa felt like a fortress for us. The villa is set up with all you require for a lovely stay, pool was lovely with toys for kids to play with and a pool table and air hockey table was also used in the garage that was set up.

Lovely big tv screen in main reception room, house alarm that is monitored 24hrs a day which we found out after accidentally setting it off. Lovely decor around the villa with temp controlled air con upstairs and downstairs.

It is approx 20-30 mins drive from all parks in a nice area of Orlando in Haines city. Local supermarkets, a Walmart and eating outlets nearby. Perfect weather for our stay and not far from Siesta key beach No1 beach in USA, definitely worth a visit, it was amazing.

We have stopped in many locations around the world, this is one of the best relaxing villas we have stopped in and this was more due to the level of service we received from Fred and the villa management agent.

See you all soon!

Thanks again Fred!

From Irfan, Shirley, Malaki and Jennah family

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL HOME!!! Our family was happy, comfortable, and close to our vacation home. It truly was the perfect place for us for the extended time.

The home is close to EVERYTHING!! It was more than we could have ever anticipated. The kids were easy to please as a result!!

The owner and the management company were WONDERFUL!! I am looking forward to the possibility of using the home again in the future.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fantastic 2 weeks holiday in orlando. This villa was absolutely perfect for our family of 6.Exceptionallly clean and tidy and everything there you need for a villa holiday..The owner was very excellent and kept in touch with us until we left the uk answering any queries we had promtly.The walmart was only a 2 min drive away that has everything and more than you need.And a few restaurant's locally.We would advise like we did to purchase all theme and waterpark tickets before departure as spoke to a few american people who had paid nearly as much as us for 2 day ticket to just 2 parks on the day.We had unlimited 14 days passes for all parks other than disney world. £249 each for ours.Need a holiday to recover now from all the parks but i must say this villa made our stay very comfortable,easy to find.a gated community with 24hr service.Lovely pool for relaxing and fully air conditioned..Will definatley recommend this villa and its owner fred to our family and friends and we will definatly book this villa again if we return.Ease of payment and promt and excellent service from owner.

Car: necessary


You can be on either coast with beautiful beaches within an hours drive if you wish with Daytona on the East and Tampa etc. on the West.


A car in this area of Florida is essential to fully enjoy the Orlando experience as there is so much to see and Highway access and directions are excellent. The villa is approximately 40 minutes from Orlando International Airport on the interstate and highway access. See map on our private web site.


It is not only the Disney dazzle that draws visitors to Orlando. There are other attractions here too, like Universal Studios and Sea World, all adding to the maelstrom of thrills and pleasure palaces that this city is now renowned for. Just a trip down attraction-rich International Drive is a mind-boggling experience.

Further Details:

It is ideally situated being only 20 minutes from Disney and within easy reach of all other Orlando attractions, but far enough away to allow you to relax when you want. Within 5 minutes by car you have access to 24 hour Wall-Mart and Publix supermarkets for all your needs during your stay, with numerous local food outlets and restaurants for the times you don't wish to stray too far. The shopping is fantastic with centres like the Florida Mall, Mall at the Millenia and Designer Outlets, plus many more. There are so many good restaurants for all tastes that it is difficult not to spoil yourselves.
