Guestbook comments from the owner

"The home was more than we had ever expected. It was VERY clean, very roomy (nice and large), the kitchen was more than stocked. Their were movies to watch, games to play, and best of all - the pool was fabulous! "Thomas and Dee

"I wanted to let you know that we had a lovely holiday in Florida. The house was lovely and was really clean, comfortable and so spacious. We thought it was really well equipped too and really appreciated the basic store cupboard items – salt, pepper etc. Thanks so much for a lovely holiday, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your lovely property " Susan

"Our whole family was very happy with the house- the location, how well the kitchen and linens were stocked, the easy instructions for the lock box and alarm system, and the wonderful pool and bbq.Thank you again for the stay and for your patience and help with all of my questions - you really helped us have a wonderful week in Orlando" Dawn

Great place to stay if you like construction sites.

  • 1 of 5

We stayed at this villa for a week in Aug 2016, the place was clean, well equipped and a good location for Disney & Universal. One very big problem, the view from the pool is of a major noisy construction site. This starts every morning at 7am apart from Sundays. I was told by the owner and manager there was something happening " After they had my money" but they were not sure what was going on. This has been going on for over 4 months which I was told by a neighbour so no idea why they don't know, its a huge site and will be happening for many months to come.

Owner's Response: As per our e-mails and phone conversations, we had no knowledge of any work prior to a guest informing us about it, at which time, we contacted our guests for this year giving them all the information we had. At that time the guests had the option to change their minds, with a full refund being given. The site is very large, and we now know that the work in the first months were far away from our villa down the western edge. We had photos taken before the August arrival that showed that the clearance work behind our villa and its neighbours had been completed. Instead of the lovely greenery, the outlook was flat sand. Recent photos show the same (photos are included on this site). We were e-mailed photos of large vehicles purporting to be from behind our villa and requesting compensation, however, it was obvious from the photos that they were taken in a very different area of the extremely large site. We and our management company are trying every week to get more information about the work and house building, and especially, when it will be near our villa. We now have been told that the building of the houses behind us will not commence until at least 2017 and we are now eagerly chasing the details about next year.

Superb Villa & Location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous 15 night stay at this villa. It was specious, clean, well equipped and in a great location - 15 mins from Disney and 20-25 mins from Universal. Convenient Publix supermarket only 5 mins drive away. Plenty of restaurants along the 192 highway.

We enjoyed spending the late afternoons sat next to the pool - really quiet and peaceful.

We would have no hesitation to return!

Great Accommodation

  • 4 of 5

This was our 6th trip to Florida/Disney so we know the surrounding area very well and have previously stayed at a similar property about 10 mins drive away, as well as at Disney. The villa was clean, spacious, comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The pool was fine and pool heating worked well (needed in January). The villa is situated on a quiet, modern development and well located for getting out and about. It is about a 40 min drive from Orlando International Airport, about 20 mins from Disney and 5-10 mins to the Publix supermarket at Champions Gate which we tend to use. Taken together we had a very pleasant stay and would certainly use this villa again.

Ideal base for Orlando

  • 5 of 5

Just back from two weeks in Florida, staying in this villa and it made an ideal base. We knew the area, having stayed on a nearby estate a couple of years ago, so we knew the location was good. However, this villa was much nicer than the one we had previously - very much like a 'home from home' - well equipped, clean and comfortable. The lanai was also a very welcome feature. The outlook from the villa is lovely and we enjoyed watching all sorts of wildlife through the screen while we relaxed in the pool. Would recommend to anyone looking for a family holiday in the area.

Brilliant stay at excellent accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This extremely well equipped and tastefully furnished home has everthing you would want for a great stay. Two files of information on where to visit, to eat, how to get there, and all the Park Maps....... were absolutely invaluable in finding our feet very quickly. The pool in May needed no heating and is wonderfully private backing on to fields and woods.

We were delighted to find we could be at the Disney junction on the I 4 in 15 minutes and Universal and Sea World only a few minutes more. So near we have been able to come back from attractions and relax and enjoy pool and return in the evening.

Publix supermarket and various take aways only 5 mins5 away.

Writing this by the pool and don't want to leave! Would recommend to anyone.

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this villa from 10/04/14 - 21/04/14 and it was exactly what we wanted.It was very clean and comfortable, the carpets were spotless, this is normally a sign that it is looked after and cleaned as it should be. Excellent barbaque which was nice and clean,credit to the previous occupants because this is not the owner/ management company,s responsibility.Location is spot on, 192 is 5 minutes away and the interstate 4 about the same. We will be returning to florida and hopefully this villa will be available.

Tony and Val.
