“Cafish Villa is the PERFECT home away from home!!”
Reviewed July 28, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

After visiting Florida every summer for the past 23 years, I decided to try something new. Instead of booking a hotel in Orlando, I booked the catfish villa for the week..
This was the best decision, and I cannot begin to explain just how much this rental felt like home. The owners, Maureen and George, have left everything you will ever possibly need for you. Extra blankets, pillows, tour guides, menus, band aids, tea bags, ice, dvds, games, movies, cd's, etc etc etc! It was all there, and all clean, smelled flowery, and homey.. This place is just home- no way will you ever feel like you are renting, but will instantly feel like you are in your vacation home- great job Maureen and thank you for always answering emails, sending directions, and the email telling us you look forward to our visit.. at every step you went above and beyond, and it is appreciated..
Check out the catfish villa, you will never go back to hotel stays in the Orlando area!!

“Loved this villa”

Loved staying at the Cat Fish Villa - the photos do not do it justice. It is centrally placed for many activities near by, and there are loads of places to eat within a short driving distance.
We often came home at lunch time to have a snack and sat out in the garden relaxing. There is a lovely walk to the lake - it was a beautiful place for peace and quiet. Came back from holiday ready to book for next January but was disappointed to find it fully booked up. Maureen has been very pleasant to deal with and answered all my pre-booking questions. We had a slight problem with the tv which was dealt with my the maintenance crew. I would recommend staying at this villa - it is excellent value for money. I will miss my Monday bingo nights and my husband will miss his pool nights.

“BEST VILLA WE HAVE EVER STAYED IN.”

person found this review helpful

We have stayed in many properties in the USA over the last fifteen years. This is by far the best value for money accommodation.We have returned to this villa for the last six years. It has been updated with flat screen tv wifi.All fixtures and fittings are of good quality.This is more of a home than a holiday accommodation. There are two swimming pools on the complex. It is also a gated community for extra security . I would recommend a car for this property.

“Fabulous villa with everything you could possibly need for a great stay.”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed here as a family of five and it was a fabulous location for all the parks.
The villa was spacious with all you could possibly need for no matter how long you were going to stay. It was located in a lovely secure area and the people were all so friendly.
One thing I would recommend for people to do is avoid the 192 road and stay on the I4 (direction to Tampa) until junction 55 and go onto the 27 north as it was a much quieter road to drive and much less stressful!
I would recommend this villa to anyone going to Florida as it was very reasonably priced and had everything you needed.

“Very relaxing Home from home”
Reviewed January 26, 2014 for a stay in June 2013

Wow !!! what a lovely villa. Very spacious and modern with an open plan living area, dining area and kitchen. Its very well equipped with everything you would need with loads of Kitchen gadgets, ample towels, loungers and chairs, BBQ, golf clubs, kiddies buggies, cds dvds and books and best of all there is a washing machine and dryer. Master bedroom is huge with the best bed ever. I loved the walk in wardrobe.
Villa is on a complex which has a gated entrance, with a local security patrol also.Felt very secure and safe. Its very relaxing when away from the parks as its quiet and peaceful here. On the complex is swimming pools and there's a nice walk down to Bass lake where there are bbq and picnic areas and a small pier where you can sit and chill.
Take a right out the complex and Walmart is just 5 minutes up the road,with a near by dunkin doughtnuts,pizza hut, Burger King , macdonalds and various other eating places and shops. Also the nearby 192 road has a vast amount of eating places. Take a left and about 15 minutes up the road was our all time favourite eating place. Beef O Bradys. Their chicken wings are to die for and the service was always top class. There is also a Chinese take way there which is really tasty too. Plenty of chemists nearby too.
The nearby Disney parks is only a 15 minute drive away.
Will certainly be back at this villa again and can't rate it high enough. No one will be disappointed here that's for sure. Owners very friendly and full of all kinds of information. The Information book in the villa came in very handy.
