Excellent villa, owner Kevan communicated with us. Location was great not too far from the parks. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place away from the parks.
Within 20 to 30 minutes ride from all attractions. Plenty of amenities close by. Far enough away to be away from the hustle and bustle. Heated pool was a perfect place to relax when we had down time in between adventures. My family spent 4 nights. Hope to return next we are in town. The owner called and messaged me to check on everything. What else can you ask for.
The location is great close to all the attractions
The villa is very well equipped and is in a small community
Nice touch when Kevin called to make sure everything was okay
Only downside was our stay was not long enough
Hope to return in the future
Location is the perfect place to have a base in Orlando. Awesome villa everything you need you got it heated pool was amazing. Come home from the parks late at night and still getting into a warm pool so makes a holiday. Can't praise the owner enough always kept in contact us with which means a lot. Can't wait to book again.
I an excellent time here with a group of friends last March. The kitchen is really well equipped for doing your own catering, and the games room is a great touch. Excellently located for all of the Orlando attractions, would definitely visit again
I have so many positive things to say about this Villa so let us begin -
Firstly Kevan the owner (UK based) was brilliant in terms of communication, answering our questions and queries prior to and during our stay and courtesy calling us to ensure all was well.
The Villa itself was in a great location near Champions Gate, just off US27. That means about a 15 / 20 min car journey to all the main Disney attractions and International Drive etc. There are also no road tolls in this area. The only Road Tolls we had to pay were to and from the airport so there is no need to buy a Sunpass (a prepaid toll card - like an Oyster card) if you are just planning a Disney holiday. The Car Rental company wanted to charge us $10 a day for the Sunpass and it would have proved a colossal waste of money.
The US27 also links to the Interstate (I4) giving you good access to Tampa (we went for a Baseball game) or North Florida (we visited friends in Jacksonville) and both journeys were very simple to navigate.
There are loads of restaurants and shops along US27 making eating and supply runs very easy. If you just want to eat at the Villa the house is very well stocked with Kitchen equipment so all we had to buy for our stay was some dish & clothes washing liquids and some cooking oil and the food itself.
The kids absolutely loved the pool and games room. As a parent of young children the pool alarm system was brilliant. The pool area can not be accessed without the push of a button that is out of reach of young children. Any attempt to access the pool without pushing the safety button sets of the warning alarm.
The pool itself was clean and well maintained and well protected from wildlife.
There were plenty of towels and extra bedding for all the beds if required.
A nice array of DVDs and Books was available. We were usually to busy or knackered to watch the TV and/or read a book but the option was there if required.
There was also TVs in each of the 3no. Bedrooms and plenty of storage space.
The Air Conditioning went off one day as a Lizard crawled across the electrical terminals of the external condenser. This resulted in fuse trip and a bloody hot villa! We only discovered this in the late evening upon our return from a day at the parks. We called the management company and they still answered at nearly 11pm and sent an engineer to investigate / repair at 10am the following morning.
A great response and very helpful and friendly.
I really cant say anything much negative. If I you held a gun to my head and I had to list one thing it would be the occasional Emergency Vehicle sirens through the night. The Villa is just off the highway and not to far from a fire station so you can hear the engines leave when called to emergency. The house is sound proofed well enough to block out general traffic noise. Its just the bigger vehicles that are noticeable.
So I would highly recommend this Villa as a holiday home for any family wanting to visit Florida area.
We will certainly be back once we have saved up the money for another Disney trip.
Roland and family.
The Villa is great value for money, not overpriced like many. Very clean, pool fantastic and air conditioning perfect which for the family are the most vital things.
Bedrooms good and again all clean.
Service excellent from management company and owner.
Good location to all restaurants and parks.
Games room very good.
Will definitely recommend!
