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, or read a book. The 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 Orange Tree

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 and DVDs. See Disney's fireworks each night from the pool deck.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We have had a fabulous couple of weeks. Your villa was great. Feels like we have come home to a doll's house! We would have no hesitation in re-booking your villa or recommending it to our friends."

"Many thanks - the house is lovely and roomy and everyone enjoyed their stay. Also good location as you feel away from crowds but near enough to all popular places to visit."

"We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Love the pool! The house is spacious and had everything we needed. We will come back again."

Very pleased with the villa. Lovely and clean. Pool fab and a great BBQ and facilities generally. Can't wait to try out the Cyprus one."

"The house is lovely and we all had a lovely family holiday. Kids loved the hifi, TV and Games Room. All the facilities were exactly as we wished for. Thank you."

Great Place To Stay For Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Villa Rhapsody. The house was wonderful and private and the pool was lovely! The only recommendation I have is to perhaps leave a small welcome kit with dish soap and paper towel. That would have been much appreciated on the first day.

Memorable Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this beautiful home for 7 days and filled the week with wonderful memories. The house itself was very beautiful and the pool & jacuzzi were amazing. The only issue we had was with the air conditioner shutting off because the door in the bathroom leading to the pool area did not seem to have a tight seal when closed and the air conditioner automatically shuts off if it senses that a door or window is left open. Other than that; the entire vacation and the house itself was Great!!!! it was clean with plenty of room, plenty to do and the kitchen area was well equipped with plenty of dishes and cooking supplies. We highly recommend this home. Thank you for the wonderful memories!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, and I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at Villa Rhapsody. Our management team is very responsive and would have gladly come out to fix the problem you experienced with the door, so it's a real shame they weren't contacted. However, I'm happy to say the problem has now been rectified, so thank you for alerting me to it. We'd love to welcome you back to Villa Rhapsody if you're ever staying in the area again.

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.
