About the property

Villa in Orange Tree, Clermont, Florida, USA - Fantastic Location, Quiet, Great Access to Attractions - Disney 10 Mins. Secluded Pool/Spa/Deck

After a busy day at the theme parks, our spacious, well equipped villa is the perfect place for you to relax. With two master suites, the villa can easily be occupied by two families. The over sized pool and spa are a great place to enjoy family fun. The main lounge leads onto the pool deck, (doors are alarmed for child safety) and is equipped with a 65" LCD TV, home theatre system and hi-fi. The family room gives children young and old the space to play board games, watch a DVD, play on the PS2 or read a book. The recently upgraded Games Room has an 8ft slate-bed pool table, large air hockey table and a Basketball game. Just 3 minutes from the US192 with its restaurants, bars and attractions and 10 minutes from the I4, this property is very well appointed. A Walmart superstore and Publix supermarket are less than 5 minutes away, as is the beautiful Lake Louisa State Park with its 6 lakes to fish, kayak/canoe on and trails for hiking and horse-riding.

About Shelley Freear

I live in Sussex with my husband and two young sons. We have both travelled a great deal and visited many places before we chose to buy in Cyprus (CY1062) and Florida (F1544).

Shelley Freear purchased this villa in 2010

Why Shelley Freear chose Clermont Area

What a fantastic place to make some incredible memories with your family and friends. There is just so much to do! We first visited in 2008 and have kept coming back as just a couple of weeks was not enough to see and do everything! The villa itself is easily accessible and despite the fact that it is close to all the attractions and amenities, it is in a really peaceful location which backs onto a conservation area and lake - which makes relaxing after a hard day at the theme parks so much easier!

What makes this villa unique

The private pool area is relatively hard to find in Orlando properties, but ours backs onto conservation, is not overlooked, and is enhanced by the tropical planting. Since buying the property in June 2010 we have completed an upgrade of some of aspects of the villa so we can offer as much to our guests as possible to make their stay enjoyable. The 12ft putting green is something we haven't seen in a property here before, so we hope that will go down well. The Games Room now has an Air Hockey table, Basketball game and Pool table. The 65" LCD TV in the Main Lounge has cable TV and is connected to a home theatre system, but if the children want a bit of space for themselves, the Family Room has ample board games, books, DVDs and a PS2. See Disney's fireworks each night from the pool deck.

Would stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. The villa had everything we needed and more. The pool area at this villa was the nicest one in all the villas we have stayed in. Lots of pool toys and beach towels were very nice to have provided so we did not have to pack any. Watching the fireworks from the pool area was awesome! We did not have children with, but the house was very well supplied with high chairs and a pack and play for those with children. The kitchen was very well supplied and we enjoyed the huge TV in the family room as well. The privacy in the back was very nice - we didn't even know there were neighbors as we couldn't see anyone on either side or to the back, where we enjoyed watching all the wild life. We were in the Clermont area for a college softball spring trip - the proximity to the fields was great and also the area is full of fun places for dinner and/or happy hour. We hope to return next year for another softball week!

Clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

The home was recently painted and felt very clean and comfortable. Anything we needed was available for use. We've been to the Orange Tree neighborhood for 3 years now and this is the best house we've had so far. Having no visable neighbors and the backyard view of nature was an added benefit. If we return to the area, we will stay here again.

Home definatly was a five star experience!

  • 5 of 5

House was very clean , and there was a very private view from the pool area. The real treat for me was the "little extras" that the house had to make our stay more comfortable, such as a very well equiped kitchen with large numbers of plates/silverware etc. Around the warm pool was more of (and more comfortable) lawn furnature than a lot of hotels have. We definatly would stay in Shelly's house again next time if we can.

What an amazing villa and trip!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 8 days and 7 nights! There were 10 of us, 4 adults and 6 kids. Everyone had a wonderful time!!

When we arrived the house was spotless. There was plenty of room for all of us. There were ample linens and towels as well. The kids absolutely loved the pool and game room. The older kids actually asked to leave the theme parks to go back to the villa and hang out. And no video games were played all week...that is a WIN!! We had requested a BBQ from the property management, when it was delivered the gentleman from the property management, Tom, was very nice.

We were minutes from WalMart - which we found ourselves at almost daily. There were plenty of restaurants near by. We were a reasonable drive to Disney (20-25 min), SeaWorld (40 min), and Universal (40 min).

We would definitely consider renting this villa again if we ever head back to the area. I have also shared the link to the villa with many others hoping to share our experience.

Shelley and Dave - THANK YOU for allowing us to rent your villa and give our families and amazing vacation!

Absolutely beautiful house in a perfect peaceful setting. Not far from any of the major attractions and a lovely pool and spa for relaxing outside in the sun.

Would recommend 100%

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing two weeks at Villa Rhapsody, it was spotlessly clean and the kids loved the swimming pool! Plenty of space and in a good location, about 30 mins drive from all the Disney Parks and Universal Studios. Plenty of towels provided for both the bathrooms and the pool and very private at the rear where the pool is so very relaxing.

We would definitely recommend this villa and hope to return in the future. We were all very sad to come home!
