We had a family party of ten stay at this huge villa for the second two weeks of June, and it was awesome! Although the website photos do a good job, you don't really appreciate the size of the place until you actually arrive there, when you are blown away with the wow factor! This villa is the place you need to book!
There are six big bedrooms all with ensuites, a games room, 2 huge receptions, and a spacious kitchen. It was very hot in Florida at the time, so every time we came back exhausted from visiting the parks, we spent a couple of hours cooling off in the fantastic pool - it was bliss!
Everything you could ever need is to hand in this fantastic villa.
It's about 30 - 45 minutes drive to most of the Disney/Universal parks, and the numerous other attractions. When you fancy a change from the Disney parks, I would recommend a visit to Boggy Creek for an airboat ride. It's fun, and you might see some alligators in their natural habitat! Then back to the villa's own pool, which is so refreshing!
Wifi in the house itself is good, and with about 8 to 10 TVs to watch, or playing in the games room, there is always something to do if the weather is not great. Not that we really had any bad weather, other than a brief thunder storm now and again. Then there's the pool, which was always asking us to jump in, whatever the weather. You just could not resist it!
Laundry facilities in the villa are ample, so it's a real home-from-home, although this place feels more like a mansion!
Regarding food, we mixed it up between self catering (normally al fresco at one of the two tables by the pool), or visiting one of a wide choice of restaurants at places such as Champions Gate (about 10 -15 minutes drive away), or getting something delivered. All work great.
Owners Richard and Nichola were very helpful right from when we booked the villa 18 months before the trip, right through to a telephone conversation we had with them whilst there. But the local dedicated management company is always on hand, and always contactable, so any issues are sorted very quickly and without any fuss. We had a very minor one when we had too many things plugged in to the sockets, causing just one or two of the sockets to trip, and they needed resetting. The maintenance team were with us within 30 minutes, and sorted it right away.
So, if you are fussy about where to stay when visiting Florida, and only the best will do for you and your loved ones, then Florida Delight is the place to stay! We really can't fault it! And did I mention the pool?
Let me start by saying Flip Key is an amazing thing!! We went as a Family of 10. We arrived Mar 24, 2017 and stayed until April 1, 2017. We really lucked out with the weather .. once we arrived we were welcomed with a beautiful, well maintained,, perfectly laid out home. The rooms were perfect in size .. I can't think of one thing to change with any of the rooms. Having each with their own t.v and bathrm it was convenient for everyone to get ready for the day and end the evening!! The swimming pool was beyond perfect. For 3 days of our vacation we decided just to stay at the house and swim and enjoy the weather!!! There is no homes behind this house .. but there was wild life!! Lots of little geckos, a tortoise and of course a Herron!! The kids loved that!!! This home is defiantly what you want if you want to enjoy space to relax and space to enjoy the company of Family!!!! Lots to do...as Richard (Owner) has a lot of info at your fingertips!! Just one word of advice .. if you are booking an Air Boat Tour ..BOOK IN ADVANCE!!!! I used the gym as well and the computer room too .. very nice!! Overall a 5* house!!! There is no disappointment here! Just sit back and enjoy your vacay .. we did!!!!!
Location is beautiful!!! This home is so much more than we expected. The photos here don't even do it justice. The kids played every day in the pool and the adults thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub every night as well. The rooms are spacious and very well put together. The owner called us to make sure that we were setup and everything was to our liking which was surprising and impressive. The management team was extremely helpful and very friendly. I honestly don't know what to say except we were very impressed and would ABSOLUTELY visit again!!!! Thanks Richard for the best Florida vacation yet!!!
Wonderful villa finished to a high standard in a good location.Comfortable beds and brilliant on suit facilities.Richard very helpful answering queries before and during our stay.Our family of 11 ranged between 8 and 68 with plenty of room for all and my five grandchildren loved the games room.
We did have a problem with noise from a neighbours generator which was resolved in a couple of days.The only other negative was no access to the gym before 9am in the morning.Otherwise the perfect holiday villa.
We contacted Richard when booking the villa a few months earlier and had nothing but quick and very helpful responses. We even used the sat nav which was sent prior to the visit which helped us find the villa resort on arrival. There were to be 8 in the party but only had 6 in the end. The villa was excellent. The pool was heated on request and was superb at the end of a day after parks! The furniture and furnishings are all beautiful and comfortable. The 6 of us all commented on how wonderful the villa was and there was the desire for us all to stay longer! Thank you for the rental of your home . You never know we may be back. I would definitely recommend this villa .
