About Rachel Stacey

Hi,

My hubbie & I live in Hampshire, UK. Home consists of us & 2 cocker spaniels (who are only slightly bonkers).

We enjoy good food, good wine and good company, as well as music (playing and listening), walking the dogs in the country and putting our feet up in front of the TV.

We always enjoy our trips to Florida, it's such a great place to visit. We do hope we can help you with your accommodation needs for a fantastic trip to the sun.

Rachel Stacey purchased this villa in 2014

Why Rachel Stacey chose Disney / Orlando

We chose this Villa because we simply fell in love with the view - a long time before there was a building on the site. The quality of the finish by the developer has far exceeded our expectations and we couldn't be happier with the result.

We were looking in the location of Davenport as it provides a great location to explore Florida, as well as being convenient to the Parks and razzamatazz of Orlando but far enough to escape all that when you want to unwind. It really does offer the best of both worlds.

It's in easy reach of several truly world class golf courses, or a you can take a direct route to the coast.

What makes this villa unique

The Villa is situated on the Solterra Resort Community, which provides first class clubhouse facilities exclusively for the use of anybody staying at the Resort. This includes a large pool with slide, spa, lounge, children's play area, 2 x tennis courts, volleyball court and gym.

The Solterra Resort is also a gated community, giving you added peace of mind.

Free wifi is provided at the Villa, and has 4G coverage for compatible cellphones.

Perfect for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family vacation - we had six adults and 5 kiddos. The bunk room was a huge hit and we spent so much time in the pool! We also loved watching all of the birds come in every evening to gather in the pond. We spent two days at the parks and the kids wanted to stay in the pool at house the others days. We definitely recommend adding on the pool heat - the temperature was perfect for our small children. The community pool was also very nice - the water slide and zero entry pool were great. A fantastic home in a great community. Also, Rachel was a pleasure to work with. She was quick to respond and super helpful. We hope to be back again!

We are so pleased to hear you had a good time and the children were able to make the most of all the facilities and that everybody enjoyed the views over the conservation area at the rear of the Villa. We would of course be delighted to welcome you back should you decide on a return trip. Best wishes Rachel & Paul

Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely family friendly property, good size pool and hot tub, lovely bedrooms and bathrooms, plenty of space and a real home from home. Very quiet setting, just the birds on the lake! The Soltana resort pool was also lovely and the opening of a cafe and small water park in the future sounds amazing! Would definitely return for future visits. Was about 20 mins to Disney by car and 1/2 hour to Universal, and very easy to find our way there, and actually was nice to be staying a little bit away from that busy area. Champions Gate is nearest for shops/restaurants and had good facilities, such as large supermarket, and good quality restaurants not just fast food. Very enjoyable stay!

Thanks for a wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This property surpassed our expectations. The pictures really do not do this home proper justice. The rooms were clean and very large. The kids loved the bunk room. Pool was clean and always warm (paid for the heat). The neighbourhood in general is tidy and quiet, but there aren't many properties that share the view that this one has. Sun all day and no houses backing onto it. The community pool was incredible. The kids always wanted to go there to swim and use the water slide. Will be even more fun when the lazy river opens. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. Also, when you are renting a house in another country, there is always a little hesitation about who you are renting from, etc. I can happily say that dealing with Rachel was very easy and always pleasant. A++++

Perfect for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for a family get together with 6 adults and 6 children. Loads of room and we really appreciated the extra baby equipment. Clean, roomy and well maintained. Great location only 15 mins from Disney and close to local stores, groceries and restaurants.

Spent a great 2 weeks here and it felt like home. Would definitely use this property again. Thanks Rachel.

The house was awesome!

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as pictured, and it was clean. We had everything we needed at the house. The only issue we had was with the refrigerator/freezer not working properly, so a repairman had to come on two dates to complete repairs. The owners were great about it and refunded our money for the chicken, milk, dairy products we had to throw out because of it. Stacey the owner is awesome. She quickly responded to our emails, and was very accommodating. I would definitely stay here again, and I would refer this rental to anyone visiting the area. The gated community is very nice, and the community pool and private pool were both great. Thank you for letting us stay in your home!
