About the property

32x14ft Heated pool, 2 mins from Publix, quiet residential neighborhood

** A cracking holiday villa that is real value for money **

This 4 bedroom 2 bathroom villa (sleeps 8) is located in the quiet community of Greater Groves on Highway 27 near to Walt Disney World (8 miles - 20 minutes - from Animal Kingdom).

The villa has a fully-fitted kitchen with granite countertops and cherrywood cabinets, lounge area, a luxury master bedroom with large ensuite and walk-in wardrobe, two further double bedrooms, a twin bedroom and the house bathroom. A highlight of the villa is the pool, which is 32ft by 14ft, free form, very private and south-facing, capturing the sun all day.

When you need a break from the glorious sunshine there is an HD TV (300+ cable channels), a DVD player that plays both US and UK discs and a US Playstation3 (with games). There is also FREE superfast wireless broadband internet (60Mbps) and FREE telephone calls nationwide to US and Canada.

We are within walking distance of a Publix supermarket and less than 5 minutes drive from a WalMart Supercenter, local restaurants and take-outs.

On Your Doorstep: Our villa is in Greater Groves; a quiet, fully completed, residential community on Highway 27 about 2 miles north of the junction with the US192, to the west of Orlando close to Walt Disney World. This handily located and up-and-coming area makes an ideal base from which to visit the sights and sounds of central Florida.

The community is still largely comprised of resident homeowners with the iconic yellow school buses trundling through its streets each morning to collect the local schoolchildren.

As well as the supermarkets and restaurants nearby there are also gas stations, small shopping plazas (including small independent shops such as a bakery and an ice-cream parlour as well as well-known brands such as Subway, Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts), a gym and a drop-in medical centre - all within 5 mins drive.

Expansion of Local Amenities: This area west of Walt Disney World has seen a high level of investment in local amenities over the last 5 years, especially along the US 27 from the junction with the 192 north towards Clermont. The highway itself was widened and several new light-controlled junctions to the existing neighborhoods were installed to aid road safety. Several major retailers have established new stores (e.g. WalMart, Publix and Lowe's) as well as new branches of banks and fast food outlets. The new neighborhoods that have fed this expansion have brought with them additional facilities such as a public library and new medical establishments. It is a growing residential area and businesses are investing to meet local demand - which is all good news for vacationers! Local restaurants include famous chain names such as Chilis, Hurricane Grill and Wings, Bonefish Grill, Longhorn Steak House, Bahama Breeze and Olive Garden as well as independent restaurants selling Italian, Mexican and Greek cuisine.

Golf: The immediate Orlando area boasts over 25 golf courses including Greg Norman's Champions Gate course which is also home to the David Leadbetter Golf Academy, a mere 15 minutes drive from Greater Groves.

Even closer, and more affordable, are the courses of Legends Golf and Country Club, Orange Lake Golf Club (one course designed by Arnold Palmer) and Highlands Reserve Golf Club. If you fancy honing your short game there are also plenty of challenging 'Executive Par 3' courses, notably at Kings Ridge and Polo Park (both 10 mins away). A fabulous golfing resource right on your doorstep. And do not forget the Walt Disney World championship courses - its not often you get the opportunity to chip out of bunkers shaped like mouse ears!

With a myriad of golf courses so close to Greater Groves there is no need to pay the high costs of on-course accommodation. Our Villa gives you the space to unwind and relax in a private pool after a good day's golf.

Great value in a good location for Disney

  • 4 of 5

Spent 2 weeks in the villa at Easter as a base for visiting the Disney theme parks with the family.

Villa is a good size and located well for trips to Disney World and it's parks. Plenty of nearby facilities - shops, supermarkets and restaurants.

The villa is good value and fairly priced. It is not luxurious but not sold as such. The descriptions are accurate and representative. It proved to be a comfortable and restful place for our non park days and sleep.

The owners information packs are very comprehensive and helpful. They also offered help with any queries pre visit.

The local management company provide a folder in the villa but it contained an inaccuracy (waste collection information) and is not as comprehensive as that provided by the owner. For waste collection - the note in the garage is accurate.

Unfortunately the dishwasher didn't work during our visit. The management company couldn't get it working either so were calling out an engineer. It wasn't fixed by the time we left. Disappointing to have to revert to manual dish washing but not the end of the world.

On a few days, there was the smell of sewage in the air as per other reviews but it was more noticeable than overbearing and didn't spoil our enjoyment at the villa.

Great Location and Great Price.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 3 months at this home and were very pleased. There were a few minor issues, that were taken care of very quickly. The pool was lovely and nice and warm. We did take advantage of the Solar Blanket that was available to maintain the pool heat which is only fair to the owners.

It is a great location for Disney, plus grocery shopping at a Publix very closeby as well as a Walmart.

There is also a Lowes beside Walmart...plus numerous restaurants in the area.

We did some day trips to Leesburg, Sebring, Lake Wales, Titusville, Dade City and Webster just to name a few.

There is an awesome flea market in Webster, which is only open on Mondays, from about 9AM till about 2:30, but lots of great bargains.

We look forward to returning there is 2018, and Mike (the owner), was very easy to deal with and extremely accommodating!

Would return

  • 5 of 5

Overall the property was clean and tidy as you would hope. The estate is lovely and quite. Mike is quick to respond to any questions. There was an Ant problem in the master bedroom, but insect spray was in the property one spray and we did not see them again the remainder of the 3 weeks. We had an issue with a ring not working on the cooker which the management company fixed within the hour. (Cleaner had disconnected to clean) The pool was lovelly and warm. I would recommend this property

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property, well maintained by the owners, including regular pest control so no ants or bugs! Lovely secluded pool. Villa was very spacious, clean, well looked after, excellent Internet and loads of tv channels. Would highly recommend anyone from a couple to family to stay there and next time I'm in Orlando I will be looking to stay there again.

Everything we could have wanted.

  • 5 of 5

This place was exactly as described!! It was nice and clean and had everything we needed. The pool was great and the perfect size. It was a great neighborhood and directly across the street from a publix which was great. We went to all the parks and I think the longest drive was 35 minutes maybe. Great location. If you forced me to name a con the master bedroom bed was not very comfortable but sleepable. I really have nothing to warn you about. The owner answered every question I had and was very informative throughout the whole process. This place was great and if ever stay near Orlando again I will definitely try to get this place again.

All the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with this house! The photos are exactly what we saw when we walked through the front door. It was very clean, well kept and spacious. It truly felt like a home away from home and we highly recommend this.

Also, the price was very reasonable for what we got.
