About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
We all had a great stay at your villa, it exceeded our expectations in every way.
All the little things that were available within the garage and kitchen were an added bonus and made our visit to the beaches really good.
Robert UK, Nov 2013
Lovely large, clean and well furnished villa, well equipped kitchen and plenty of pool accessories. Set in modern and quiet surroundings, convenient for shops and restaurants. Solar heated pool really worked, it was an ideal temperature, as was the spa. Wi fi worked without interruption, and the sat nav loan was a real boon. It was a real home from home, the whole family enjoyed. Jon UK Aug 13
Thanks for use of your lovely villa - it is a real home from home. It is our dream to buy something in Florida in the future if all goes according to plan and your villa is an ideal template to follow. Gordon & Stephanie UK July 13

Our month in this lovely Villa
We have just spent a wonderful month of relaxation in this lovely Villa. It is very well equipped with everything you should need ..lovely quiet Cul-de-sac in a clean and tidy area.. Easy to find shops and eating places.. Open shopping areas and shopping malls around the area....Busch gardens about 45 minutes away lots of beaches not far away.. Lots of places to explore ....The villa is so comfortable and the added benefit of the pool outside makes for a great vacation .. Would highly recommend.
We arrived late at night after a long journey from New Orleans and immediately felt at home in the property. When we woke the next morning we found that the property exceeded our expectations. It was clean, spacious and very well equipped and we lacked for nothing during our stay. We self catered for much of our stay and had all we needed to look after ourselves and didn't need to travel very far for great shopping and to visit the beaches. The heated hot tub was great but the pool just a little chilly in November. Great TV package and fast wi fi. All in all a great find and our party of five adults would not hesitate to return!
fantastic place to stay
Hubby and I went for this property through owners direct due to the fact it had a spa and solar pool heating. When we arrived it was like stepping into your own villa...It felt so comfortable and homely. What it doesn't have can't be important. Everything that previous guests have mentioned over the years has been sorted or purchased ASAP. Where else can you get service like that. We forgot a wallet from the safe and Justine called the management company who fed ex'd the wallet the next day. Now that IS service. Thanks
Better than our own home
We stay on the Gulf Coast regularly and can say this is a first class property. The neighborhood is quiet and safe and we started each day with a daily walk to check out the local wildlife. There are sufficient local sights to see without having to drive long distances (the Wifi access is good and essential to identify the local things to do and great places to eat). The kitchen is well equipped for cooking; each day can start and end with fruit (from a local farmer market stand) with the latter via a cocktail by the lovely pool. The electric heating for the pool is essential for winter rentals and the jacuzzi is lovely and warm even on 58F days. The owner is very helpful and patient with questions before and during the stay. Local shops include a major supermarket, good Italian and Chinese and a liquor store (and the Big Storm micro-brewery is a short drive away). A good and relaxing location for escaping the cold and dreary northern winters but also a nice summer and year-round destination.
We enjoyed 2 weeks of relaxing holiday away from the hustle and bustle of the main Orlando area. The beaches were uncrowded and pretty and the sunsets stunning.
The villa was like a home from home it had everything you could ever need. It was clean and well equipped and in a lovely quiet and peaceful location with a scattering of wildlife such as deer, cranes, Ibis and humming birds.
We always stay in rented villas when on holiday as we love our privacy and we were so pleased with our choice this time. If you are planning to stay in this area then this villa is an absolute must.
The villa is immaculate and stocks everything you could possibly need for an enjoyable stay, a real home from home.
Situated in a quiet residential location but within easy reach of all attractions and amenities it is an ideal base for your holiday.
Communication with both owner and management company is excellent and they can't do enough to make your stay as pleasurable and stress free as possible.
We enjoyed it so much we wanted to book the villa again for 2015 as the 10 days we were there was insufficient to do and see everything we wanted, unfortunately it wasn't available for the period we wanted but we will certainly be looking again for 2016.
Many thanks Justine
