About Nigel Spencer

Lakeside view was purchased in March 2012 to fulfil a long-held dream of owning a home in the sunshine. Over a period of 15 years we had been regular visitors to Florida and we never grew tired of the lifestyle. When the opportunity to buy a home came along we needed little encouragement to take that big step! We are furnishing the home in a way that hopefully makes it feel like holidaymakers are staying as guests rather than simply visitors.

Why Nigel Spencer chose Disney / Orlando

We purchased this property to fulfill a dream. We have been regular visitors to all parts of Florida for many years and always said that this area has it all!

What makes this villa unique

The area is quiet yet moments from the fun.

A superb Villa in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

What a Gem of a Villa ! The photos don't do it justice, the overal location is fantastic for everything you want on an Orlando holiday. Pool area is lovely,much larger than most, sun shine all day and a fantastic outlook with the lake behind. Look out for the Gaters !

Inside there is loads of room and all the facitlities you need, nice and modern and the biggest bed ever in the master bedroom !

By far the best villa we have stayed in on 7 holidays to Orlando.

Nigel is great to deal with and replies to any questions as soon as he can.

Hope it is not too long before we are back.

Great villa in the best location.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa, better than the photos show. Only stayed as a couple, but the villa would be great for up to eight people staying. Pool area is fantastic with a great outlook over a lake and with unrestricted sunshine all day. Ideal location very close to the Disney parks and a short easy drive to Universal. Lots of restaurants within a couple of minutes drive and if you are self catering there are three supermarkets within five minutes drive. Had a small problem with the pool and called the management company, who were a pleasure to deal with and they came and resolved the problem within an hour, fantastic service. Nigel made the booking process very easy.

Would recommend if you are looking for a great villa in a fantastic location.

Ideal location, ideal size & ideal for all

  • 5 of 5

This villa is just as it shows on the photographs. We have stayed in this area before and the villa is so handy for restaurants, shopping and of course getting to the theme parks. We had a visit from the management company to replace the fire extinguishers and they left us one while ours was being refilled.

We got in touch with the owner with regard to the TV as we couldn't get it to go on (we always like to check the weather before we go out) and he phoned us the very next day to help - now that's service for you.

I would recommend this villa to anyone who wanted a relaxing holiday as the pool area is brilliant looking out over a lake but I would also recommend it to anyone who wanted to do all the theme parks - Disney is only just a few miles away.

If we manage to get back next year would definitely be in touch with Nigel and his wife to see if his villa is available.

Top choice Orlando villa- very close to Disney

  • 5 of 5

Villa exactly as described on website but even nicer than images show. The pool is perfect and very clean with a unrestricted view of a beautiful lake. The pool gets full sunshine from dawn to dusk which is fantastic. Spent many happy hours in the pool both in the morning and late at night after a long day in the theme parks. The villa is large and very spacious. The lounge area is very comfortable with a large 3 piece sofa. Rooms and beds very comfy and every thing we needed including lots of towels. The whole property was very clean on arrival and the pool was cleaned and checked once a week. Very close to Disney and we could be in animal kingdom in less than 10 minutes. Restaurants and supermarket 5 minutes drive away. Would strongly recommend the Outback Steakhouse. We have stayed in many villas before but this is by far the best for location and pool position with regards to lake and constant sunshine. No hesitation to give 5 stars and recommend to family and friends. We will be looking to book again in 2017 when we are planning a return trip. Thanks to Nigel for a hassle free process in booking and receiving all required information. Didn't have the need to use local management agency although we did receive a call to make sure everything was ok. A great service all round

Superb holiday

  • 5 of 5

Villa was exactly as described and was found in excellent condition. We were on a family holiday with our 2 grandchildren aged 5 & 8 and their parents.

As this was the kids first visit we did not want to spend too much time traveling to the parks, time to Animal Kingdom 10mins, and Seaworld aprox 25 mins. In other words an excellent location.

The pool offers excellent views over the lake and a peacefull way to end the day.

There are several restaurants and supermarkets nearby.

The owner (Nigel) answered the any questions we had promptly.

Have no qualms recommending the villa to anyone.

Brilliant stay in May

  • 5 of 5

From opening the front door to leaving, sadly, two weeks later we had a fantastic time. The villa was equipped with everything we needed and the quality of towels etc was excellent. The pool area made our holiday, sunshine all day by a wonderful pool with a view of the lake who could ask for more! Nigel was always helpful and responded quickly to any queries we had. We would love to return again.
