About the Owner

We fell in love with the friendly & relaxed Florida lifestyle on our first visit with our two young sons way back in 1988 and revisited several times after that. As retirement approached and longer visits became an actual reality we considered our best option was to buy our own holiday home which has proved to be perfect for us, our children and their children. We have made many new friends amongst other owners and enjoy getting together with them either in the UK or at Glenbrook. Just like all of us youngsters, our grandchildren spend hours in the pool and love visiting all the theme parks. When staying without family or friends one of our favourite activities is to play golf at the local courses which have very different wildlife from those in the UK - a lost ball stays lost!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Palm Haven is everything you said it would be and more. Spotlessly clean and so much room with everything you could possibly need.The Bailey Family, Essex

We had a wonderful time staying at your house. It's designed so nicely, it's really beautiful.The Badian Family, Baltimore.

I just wanted to say that we had a fantastic holiday in your wonderful home, Palm Haven. The pool area was fantastic, and our children loved the lights at night. Inside, you had thought of everything we could possibly want and more.We found it beautifully decorated and accessorised, very relaxing and tranquil after a busy day out in the theme parks. The house was spotlessly clean, and well-maintained, and within a few minutes drive of supermarkets, restaurants and Disneyworld.I would highly recommend it and it is definitely ‘a home from home’ minus the chores! The Firth Family East Yorkshire.

It really is a home from home and we have had 4 glorious weeks here. The Marshall Family, England

A beautiful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was beautifully decorated and equipped. Excellent condition; pool area clean and well maintained and lovely to spend some relaxing time. The villa is in a perfect location for Disney / Universal. The laundry appliances were of a high specification and easy to use.

The owners were informative throughout the booking process and contacted us on arrival to ensure all was well. As we were travelling around Hurricane Matthew time they even took the time to make sure we were fully informed on what to do and that we were safe. I would love to stay here again and would have hesitation in recommending it.

Thank you again Ian & Maureen on letting us use your beautiful home x

A well looked after, beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

This villa is a beautiful, well set out villa ideal for for families. It is well looked after with an array of information on the location and close ammenaties in a welcome folder. The clubhouse is an additional bonus if you want to use the bigger pool and gym. The owners are very helpful and accomadating, and for the price charged, we will be certainly going back to this wonderful villa.

I have already recommended this villa to two people, as everything about it is superb.

Florida Holiday June 2016

  • 5 of 5

From the first moment we made the booking to the day we left, the service we received was fantastic. The Villa was as every good as the pictures and more. - The villa was a lot larger than anticipated. The finish and quality of the property was fantastic, upon arrival we received a courtesy phone call from the owners to ensure that the accommodation met our expectations, and did we have any questions - The villa was clean,spacious and of a high standard - it is perfectly located just over 30 minutes from Disney, and 40 minutes from Universal. A good choice restaurants nearby 5-10 minute drive, major supermarket 5 minute drive. I never normally write reviews - however if you want to have a comfortable stay in Florida, this beautiful home will give you the perfect base - just wish we could come here every year! - The owners care and attention to great customer service was reflected in their fantastic home - cant believe they share it with people!!

Wonderful stay in a fantastic villa!

  • 5 of 5

A truly beautiful villa, immaculately clean and very well equipped. Ian and Maureen are very friendly and approachable, and made the whole experience incredibly easy, from the first phonecall, to a comprehensive information pack, and a follow-up phonecall shortly after we arrived to make sure everything was okay. Everything is as described, the villa is incredibly spacious, and the pool was amazing to come back to after a long day at Disney. The villa is around 20 minutes drive from Disney and there are plenty of supermarkets and restaurants nearby, with a lovely Publix just a mile away. The villa is situated in a residential estate which felt very safe and was well maintained. We would definitely highly recommend this villa to anyone wishing to stay in this area.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 7 and stayed in this property for 2 weeks. It is excellent - very well equipped, good size pool, good area (felt very safe on the Glenbrook complex) and about 20 mins from Disney. Near to shops, restaurants and supermarkets incl a huge Walmart. Spotlessly clean. We had a minor issue with the smoke alarm beeping due to low battery. We phoned the number given (free of charge from house phone) and the maintenance people fixed it very promptly. Can't fault this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear your holiday was a success. We hope the smoke alarm didn't start chirping in the middle of the night but good to hear it was resolved quickly.
