Luxurious family friendly home, with private pool near Disney!

Overview

Property

Updated: 26-Nov-2016
Heated private pool, HD digital cable TV, Free WiFi Internet and much more!

A luxurious, spacious villa with private pool, situated close to the main attractions of Walt Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios and more with plenty of features and amenities to make your holiday comfortable and relaxing as well as lots of fun! Just 10 - 15 minutes from Disney, my villa is the ideal base for your Disney and theme park holiday.

I refurbished my villa in 2015, including a new AC unit, tiling of kitchen and bathroom floors, new TVs, new living room furniture, and freshening up of paint and decor inside and out. There'll be more improvements made this year too.

With plenty of personal space, a 23' heated private (not overlooked) swimming pool (heating optional) a fully equipped kitchen, HD cable TV, Blu-Ray Players, Netflix, PlayStation to entertain the children, and free high-speed wireless internet to keep you in touch with family and friends at home.

My villa is located 1 minute drive away from a 24 hour Wal-Mart Supercentre, and just as close to the US192 highway for dining and other fun activities. Far superior to staying in a cramped motel with no privacy, limited and shared facilities and a busy communal pool, whether you're coming for Disney or just to relax, my villa is the perfect place for your holiday.

About the Owner

I have worked in the US hospitality industry for more than twelve years, and so I set out to make the entire operation as professional and high quality as I could, whilst still offering competitive rates and amenities and relaxed atmosphere. I’ve worked for a number of cruise lines, including Disney, Cunard and Royal Caribbean, and currently Norwegian Cruise Line, and I fully appreciate how much time, effort and money goes into a vacation. I also know how high expectations can be - especially with kids!

Orlando revisited

  • 4 of 5

We met up with our eldest son and family for a re-visit to Orlando and the theme parks as older parents and adult family. What a great time was had by all. The fun and enjoyment was enhanced by us staying at Martin's villa, an excellent property, well located, immaculately maintained and great value for money. Both Martin and Owners Direct made the booking so easy with good information and great internet access. Without hesitation we recommend Martin, his villa and Owners Direct to others looking for the "Orlando Experience". Tom & Lorna

Lovely place, central location

  • 5 of 5

We came to Florida primarily for the parks (Universal, Disney) and this villa was in a great location for the theme parks, restaurants and groceries .It didn't take us more than half an hour (although with traffic it would probably be longer but we always left early in the morning) to get to Universal. The villa itself is as described and was very clean, had everything you needed for relaxing, wifi, cable, Netflix, cooking, doing laundry, etc. The pool was perfect for relaxing at the end of the day. The owner provided a very good service and we enjoyed our stay at his villa. We would recommend it to anyone and would love to go back there again ourselves if we were ever in Florida.

We really had a beautiful time at your villa, we stayed at the end of June and we had first few days of remarkably breezy cool weather with low humidity. The house is very comfortable and peaceful. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you again Martin. The Wiley's

Typical holiday villa in florida

  • 4 of 5

The villa is well placed for the Disney parks and the Kissimmee area, handy to have a Walmart close by.

The villa was ok but some attention needs to be made to the cleaning between guests.

Overall we had a relaxing holiday.

We had cause to speak to the management company about the loose toilet seats, the ants in the kitchen, and the wifi wasn't working but all was dealt with very quickly.

We would be happy to recommend the villa to friends .

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! Sorry to hear you had issues with the cleaning company, I'll take that up with my management company. Ants in Florida are a common problem related to the tropical environment. We do our best to keep them under control and out of the villa, but the best defense is cleanliness in the kitchen and unfortunately not all guests are as careful with that as they should be. Just a little bit of food dropped into a corner by past guests can attract them (seemingly from nowhere), even with a good clean! I'm glad we were able to take care of the minor issues quickly, and you had a great stay in my villa. I hope I can welcome you back soon! thanks Martin

Great Home for Disney

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Martin's Home. It was everything advertised and more. Close to all the parks, shopping, and restaurants. Would recommend to anyone planning a trip to the Orlando area. Pool was a big plus for the kids. Thanks Martin for a wonderful week in Florida.

Location

From the Owner

My home was always conceived as a vacation rental home and right from the start in January 2006, I set out to make it the best quality vacation home that I could, completely redecorating and refurnishing it throughout. I continue to regularly visit several times a year, taking the opportunity to make continual improvements and carry out any necessary maintenance.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Orlando International (MCO) at 20 Miles Nearest Barpub : There's Lots! at 2 Miles Nearest Golf : Kissimmee Golf Club at 4 Miles Nearest Motorway : I4, junc at 8 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Again, there's lots! at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : Cocoa Beach at 60 Miles Car: necessary

Close to Walt Disney World theme parks (Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, MGM Studios and Animal Kingdom), other attractions including Universal Studios, Sea World, Kennedy Space Center and many waterparks (including Disney Wet'n'Wild). Great location for golf (close to many golf courses) as well as mini-golf. Easy drive to Cocoa Beach (a day at the beach is a welcome break from Disney overload!), as is a day at the various shopping malls, flea markets and many great family dining options. Don't miss the late night shows at the Disney parks - they're awesome! Kissimmee is the world's greatest location for theme parks, rides, attractions and great entertainment, and there's something nearby to suit all ages and activity levels. It's all within an easy drive of my villa! Kids love it (especially Disney) and adults love it all too!

Other Activities: Disney & Other Theme and Water Parks.

Facilities

From the Owner

Some things in life absolutely must be done right. So many vacation homes in Florida are owned as a second property, and rented out simply as a bonus for the owners to cover some of the expenses of having a second home in Florida. From my point of view, if I’m offering holiday accommodation, it’s got to be done right - I understand and respect the value of a holiday and for some it may well be their holiday of a lifetime.

Notes:

  • Recently refurbished, and regularly updated, I always keep my villa up to the highest standard. Uniquely amongst vacation rental villa owners, I have worked in the US tourism and hospitality business for ten years, and so I do everything I can to offer you the very best in welcome, accommodation and service for your stay. The lounge has a high ceiling keeping you cool during the hot summer days, and the pool side area is equipped with lounge furniture, table and umbrella (just don't forget the sunblock!). Kitchen is fully equipped for you to feel like home from home, and rustle up a quick and easy meal for when you don't feel like eating out. The pool is screened, optionally heated, completely private and not overlooked.
