“Will go back....very nice.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Very nice property! We shared with another baseball family and still had extra bedrooms and bath. Everything was in working order and very clean. Beautiful pool/spa area with plenty of space and chairs/tables. We will definitely stay here any time we are in the Orlando/Winterhaven area.

“Superb family getaway providing lasting memories of Florida”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 for a stay in November 2012

Nov 2012 was the second time my wife and I had a 2 week stay at Villa Twinkle, this time with both sets of parents to ‘fill it up’ so to speak, having first picked it ‘last minute’ for our honeymoon back in 2010.

Maurice & Chris have been fantastic to deal with on both occasions, comprehensive information supporting our visit to the villa was excellent, questions were answered promptly when asked and our security deposit returned promptly on our return. Their selected villa Management company were fantastic too providing prompt efficient support and problem resolution when we had an issue with the telephone/internet service. With such a distance and different time zone to the UK this was an important positive for us to know support was available when required .

Onto the villa itself. WOW we have stayed in Florida many times over the last 8 years using villas each time, including others on the same gated community at Calabay Parc. Villa Twinkle has been by far the biggest and best of the lot.

The villa is furnished to a high standard and there is plenty of living space to spread yourselves about in so you don’t end up tripping over each other and living in each other’s pockets for two weeks (read you can hide from the wife/mother in law!) There are excellent family areas too such as by the pool, for those days spent ‘chilling out’, dining table for family meals if you get fed up eating out and a games room in the garage to keep the kids (big kids in our case) occupied.

The Villa is in Haines City which is approx 20-30 miles from most of the Disney attractions, so long as you have a car this is not an issue as the road network Highway 27 & Interstate 4 are easy commutes at any time of day. Busch gardens is a little further, about 60 miles but again the excellent road network means this is no trouble. Old Town Kissimmee off Highway 192 is also worth a visit with plenty to see and do and it’s a little closer than Disney.

Local facilities include a HUGE Walmart where you can buy literally anything! Manny’s Chop House is also superb if you like Steak, it became our default eatery if we weren’t out or I could not be bothered cooking (they offer take out to cook at home too!) Macdonalds & KFC are local too if you really must but there are plenty of alternatives that are far better both nutritionally and for atmosphere.

To Sum up, both our visits to Villa Twinkle have been fantastic and have left us with great memories. Whether or not you visit as a couple and enjoy the space…. or visit as a family you will have a superb time - trust me!
