Overview

About the property

Villa in Meadow Woods, Kissimmee, Florida Orlando, USA - Conveniently Situated On Quiet Well Established Residential Estate Only 20minutes From Theme Parks

The moment you walk through the door of this lovely Florida home you are hit by the bright and airy feel this home embraces.The Owners have continued to keep there home in good condition and the ambiance is one of a bright and well equipped pool home in true Floridian style. The layout is open and the aspect over the pool deck is bright and pleasant as it looks out over the pond at the center of the subdivision.The accommodation is well spaced with the master bedroom and en suite bathroom being nicely separated from the other guests, yet the living areas are large and lend themselves to the Floridian style of family living. The pool deck is large and gives views across the pond whilst the homes on either side are slightly set forward allowing this home an air of privacy whilst enjoying an al fresco meal in the sun.

About Neville and Gillian Gill

We live in the UK with our grown up family of 5 and have been enjoying Holidays in Florida at the beaches and at our villa since they were babies.

All our children love the villa and Florida lifestyle as much as we do and now return for Holiday's with us regularly with their respective partners - it feels like home to us all every time we walk through the front door. Many of our guests feel the same way and repeat book with us on a regular basis.

We are looking forward to returning this year with our Grandchildren and hope they will have as many happy memories from the villa as their Mum's and Dad's and Grandparent's have had over the years.

We have owned the property since it was constructed back in 1992 making many enhancements to it each time we return..

Neville and Gillian Gill purchased this villa in 1992

Why Neville and Gillian Gill chose Southeast Orlando

The subdivision where our property is located is just off Landstar Boulevard in Kissimmee midway between the exit for SR417 and Osceola Parkway. It is therefore ideally located and provides quick and easy access to the Airports (Orlando approx 15 mins and Sanford approx 45mins), theme parks and wide choice of restaurants and shops.

Osceola Parkway runs directly into both the Walt Disney theme parks approx (approx 20 minutes drive) and The Loop , Orlando's fastest growing shopping plaza. (approx 10 minutes drive)which has many well known Shops, Restaurants and a 16 screen Cinema to offer.

Osceola Parkway meets highway I-4 further along providing access to the Universal and Sea World Parks in one direction or Tampa and the Gulf Coast Beaches e.g. St Pete's and Clearwater in the other

What makes this villa unique

The villa is located in a small cul de sac on a quiet well established residential estate.The villa is situated on a good sized south facing plot at the bottom of the cul de sac providing privacy from neighbours and benefits from the sun shining on the pool/sun-deck area from morning until late afternoon - any sun lovers dream!

The nearest Publix Store is within walking distance or 3 minutes drive away - really handy for your initial grocery shop after a long flight. A 24hr Walmart Store is is located on Osceola Parkway approx 8 minutes drive away neighbouring Restaurants, Fast Food Outlets Banks and Shops.

The Pool is solar heated therefore doesn't incur additional pool heating charges

The Owners also offer unlimited free international telephone calls and Wireless Internet use.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday and stay here! Friends that had previously stayed at the villa recommended that we look into it / do the same. From the moment we made an initial enquiry the owners were great to deal with and went above and beyond our expectations in terms of the information they provided prior to our holiday. As an example they provided a welcome pack which included suggestions on restaurants to try, the best local shops, car hire, park tickets, things to do etc. This added to the overall experience and we found the restaurant recommendations extremely valuable. As an example, we tried four of those suggested and they were all very good!

In terms of the villa itself it was spacious, clean and gave us everything that we needed. There was 6 of us staying there and not once did we feel like we were living on top of eachother. After being out all day at the parks it was really nice to come back to somewhere with a 'homely' feel as opposed to a hotel room. The kids also loved the pool!

I'd highly recommend this villa and we'll undoubtedly be back!

Clean, lots of space, good location, quiet neighbours, organized

  • 4 of 5

Excellent place. Would recommend staying there again.

Weaknesses: 1 shower head was not working. Pool was not heated. We called property management to fix however nobody showed up.

DO NOT let the weaknesses stop you from staying there...

The house is beautiful. Very clean and organized place. Even though the pool is not heated the entire pool area is enclosed to protect from bugs at night. Amazing access to Disney World and just an overall awesome place for a family vacation. We will be staying there again.

Happy with the villa :-) Very comfortable and well maintained. Enjoyed the large pool, nearby shops and ease of access from the airport.

The information provided by Gill & Nev was excellent and very useful. Made our stay mum easier! We will come again :-)

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5

Unfortunately after reading the previous reviews for this villa and having stayed many times in other villas in Florida I was maybe expecting something a bit better than what we ended up with .

On arriving at the villa in the early evening we were met with a large plastic bin bag full of rubbish as soon as we opened the front door then as we walked around the property we were even more dismayed to find the carpets especially in the bedrooms had not been cleaned properly with obvious dirt and clumps of human hair clearly visible !!

We immediately emailed the owners that evening and the following day whilst we were out the management company had cleaners attend and do something that should have been done properly in the first place.

On our return that afternoon I went to the pool to see if it was warm enough to have a swim as it had been a warm sunny day but we were very disappointed to find that the so called solar heating had made no difference to the temperature whatsoever and the water was freezing .What was even more alarming was the fact that the pool walls and floor had obvious signs of a green algae type substance covering large areas of the of the pool that would have put you off swimming even if the water had been warm enough to do so. After complaining to the owners a second time the pool guy came 8 days after our arrival and cleaned most of the green algae into the pool.

Further to that the patio area was dirty and obviously had not been hosed down in a long time as when I turned the hose on it you could clearly see the dirt running away.

The patio table was so dirty you could run your finger through the dirt on the surface and the outdoor conservatory structure was black with dirt in places.

The kitchen & bar area are very nice and a big plus for this villa the lounges are nice enough but the rest of the villa is somewhat tired especially the bedrooms & bathrooms I had to look behind the bedside cabinets for a watch my wife thought she had lost and had the unpleasant experience of finding dirty tissues and stains were somebody had obviously spilt something .

The owners are obviously relying on the management company to keep the villa in order but they should be made aware that it's clearly not being looked after very well. We appreciate the owners responded to our emails quickly and suggested we talk to the management company but when you are on holiday, every day is precious and you don't want to waste it sorting out problems.

Owner's Response: Firstly, we sincerely apologise for any disappointment you have experienced during your stay. We have always had many satisfied guests as you can see by 21 5 star reviews and take great pride in our home in Orlando. Many of of our guests have stayed on numerous occasions and love the home as we do. Any criticism is taken very seriously therefore we are now in Orlando ourselves staying in the property to establish what actually went wrong during your stay. We have had meetings both with our Pool maintenance guy and our Management Company to put safeguards in place to avoid any future issues It has became clear to us now that during the lead up to and over the Christmas period, that these issues were mainly caused due to a temporary pool guy and villa cleaning service due to the Holidays. We have expressed our extreme disappointment to our Management Company Jeeves and been assured this will not happen again. Neville & Gillian Gill

The house was lovely with some great home touches

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely, in a quite residential estate. It was very near to everywhere we wanted to go, no more than 30 minutes travelling time. The owner sent us a handy pack way before we left for our holiday.

Any future visitor please bear in mind you'll be near a toll road so, you'll either needs lots of coins or use an ezpass, which is what we did.

We had a great stay and would happily stay at the house again.

Lovely and Clean!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. We were impressed with the quality of the furnishings and the cleanliness throughout. With 4 bedrooms and 2 comfortable living areas there is plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Then you have the added bonus of your own private pool, wow! We stayed a week and went to the parks 3 of those days (easy drive to the parks). On the other days, we were content to just relax at the villa, floating in the pool, watching movies, reading books, cooking in the lovely kitchen, etc. We didn't want to leave! We would rent this again upon a return to Orlando.
