Location near Haines City. Very easy to find from the I- 4. Close to local shopping and not too far from Disney or Universal.
Villa was excellent. Although the property is a few years old, the furnishings are excellent. Villa very clean and well looked after. Furniture in lounge excellent and we felt very comfy sitting in the lounge. Been in some villas where it was not comfortable to relax. Games room in garage was excellent and my husband and son enjoyed relaxing there. ALlthough we did not have young children the pool area was very safe. From the back of the villa there is no-one overlooking from across from you and the way it has been set the pool area was very private. Had a problem not knowing how to use the key box and when we phoned the agents they were very helpful.
would recommend this and would book again if ever in Florida.
We stayed in villa for 3 weeks. It's in a lovely manned gated community which made us feel safe. Very close to shops and restaurants. Villa itself very clean, loads of towels and fridge with a working ice machine (you would be surprised how many don't). Really comfy beds and the sofa is amazing has made mine at home feel second class. Nice pool area with plenty of seats and catches the sun throughout the day. It can be longer to get to parks in rush hour but the quality of this villa would cost a lot more nearer the parks. Our 3rd week we just chilled by the pool and it was very relaxing. John the owner a delight to deal with he awmsers emails within the hour even on a sat night. Well worth a visit.
My family and I spent a little over two weeks here in July 2017.
It is a lovely home with great amenities and having stayed in villas in Kissimmee and Davenport the location was quiet for the area and secure as it is a gated community. It is worth noting that in bad traffic it can easily be 40 minutes or more each way to get to any Orlando attractions. That was fine for us - and the benefit is that Haines City does not feel as busy as Kissimmee and Davenport, especially in the restaurants and supermarkets (and even the cinema at Posner Park).
We loved the layout of the villa, and spent a lot of quality family time in and around the pool and the games room.
Communication was prompt and professional throughout.
Everything was very clean - but no cleaning materials were left behind for us to use during our stay (not sure if this was policy or from a particularly zealous former guest having used them all) . We obviously bought some from the local supermarket so we could keep the house clean - not a big expense but just a bit unusual from my prior experience with similar properties.
Overall I'd definitely recommend it to families looking to vacation in the area who also want to feel they can spend a bit of time relaxing away from the parks and shopping.
This home was perfect for the purposes of our vacation. The information given to us was on-point. There were a couple of things of concern the first couple of days after arrival, but when we contacted the Property Manager everything was handled in an efficient and timely manner. Having the pool heated was a great idea this time of the year as the weather is unpredictable day-to-day. We enjoyed the hot tub and pool much more than we might have if not heated. My family and I respected this home like we would our own and I would rent this home again without hesitation. Great owners, management and location.
The house is everything anyone could need. Very comfortable with lots of room. Pool deck faces the south so you get lots of sun. I would pay for the pool heat for your stay. If it gets cold you will still use the pool if there is no wind.
I would rent again for a golf trip again. Fit four guys with ease.
We stayed at Florida Palms for 3 weeks over christmas a family of 5. We found the villa clean, very spacious and had everything we needed to make our holiday. There were some cups etc left from previous guest that is handy save you buying more when you go to the parks, we left ours behind again for the same reason. John the owner was great, we even had to change our orginal dates and he was very helpful, also left out all the christmas decorations out for us so we could decorate the villa ready for christmas. Kids loved the pool and the Mickey themed bedroom and the games room was great for some down time after all the busy dates at the parks. We found it easy to find with shops and some restaurants a short drive away. Defiantly would look to stay at the villa again next time we look to go to florida.
