(Written by sister in law)
Having been to Florida with my older sister several times when we were younger, we knew how important having the perfect villa was and had many boxes to tick, this villa certainly did not disappoint!
Arriving late on Tuesday night, we were all extremely excited to get in the villa and explore our home for the next two weeks. Got the kids approval straight away with their Disney themed room, games room and plenty space for the youngest (3) to run around! Kitchen, living areas, rooms and bathrooms were all emaculate and provided with plenty towels for all 8 of us. Massive king size (maybe bigger) beds were perfect and super comfortable after a long day at the parks!
The pool area was by far the biggest we have stayed in so far with loads of room for sun loungers and enough to go round! The kids were amazed at the size of the pool and enjoyed playing with the pool toys that were left behind by others, we added to this collection! Pool lights for night time were an extra special touch that the kids loved!
Enough couches for all of us to spread out on was great for chilling out at night time and we made great use of the tv room, watching Harry Potter and playing cards- was a great way to bring us altogether after a pool day!
Plenty plastic plates and cups were provided which was great for outdoor use and the ease of use of the dishwasher and washing machine/tumble dryer made it easy to keep the place tidy amongst our crazy park schedule. Large dining table was great as plenty space for us all to gather round including the little one. High chair and extra beach towels were also provided which were a god send.
Location of the villa was spot on for us, 10 minite drive to a Walmart and Burger King down the road and around 10/15 minutes in the direction towards Disney for restaurants and a massive Target where we did most of our shopping. Disney was around 30/40 minutes away in rush our traffic and universal just a little further, again, not too long at all if you have a car hire as we did.
All in all, this villa was a massive part in making our holiday as amazing as it was and we will definately be coming back here! Villa owner could not have been more accommodating and helpful, checking in with us to make sure we were happy- we were delighted!

We have had such a lovely holiday. 3 years of saving and planning and I am so glad I found your villa. With children aged 6, 13, 16 & 18 we needed space and the villa was perfect. It was well equipped and after day one we felt it was like home. Definitely beats the hustle and bustle of a hotel and was so nice to come back to the pool after a day at the Disney parks. Angie was informative and a pleasure to communicate with. I cried when we arrive, it was everything we had imagined and more. I also cried when we left....so sad to leave what had been our home for 17 nights. One day we will be back. Thanks again Angie x
The house has everything needed plus for a great stay/getaway/vacation in Orlando. We stayed a week and it was perfect. Plenty of room and plenty to do with the pool and hot tubs after a day walking the parks. A very enjoyable stay.
Beautiful villa, secluded with private pool and two spas'. Had everything you needed and more. Within easy reach of all the parks. Would definitely stay again.
We had a lovely stay at Doral Woods. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and was very accommodating when our flights were cancelled and we had to delay our arrival by a day. The villa definitely has a very homely feel and we almost felt like we were staying in a friends home rather than a typical Florida rental villa. I would recommend light sleepers avoiding the main master bedroom as the noise from the main road can get annoying during the night. Although the road is fairly close the outside area is the most secluded and private of any villa I have stayed at in Florida. Plenty of bushes/trees to shield from the road. The pool area is fantastic and there are so many loungers/chairs etc. The villa is very well equipped even down to a sewing kit!!! I would definitely recommend this villa to others.
Been travelling to Florida for many years!! On every occasion we have rented a villa but this one is by far one of the best! It exceeded every expectation. Excellent location, clean, spacious and accommodated ever need. We did not have to purchase any household products all available when we arrived. I feel this villa had everybody in mind to the point where children would feel at home, toys, high chair, cots etc. The bedrooms were goods sizes and amazing rooms for kids, Disney themed.The large pool was great size and hottubes was great to relax in. All floats and pool toys were available. Lots of shelter if you wanted to avoid the sun but then again lots of sun bathing areas too. Very private location and not over looked, plenty of woodland and very relaxing. I could go on with all the positive things this villa has to offer and can not fault it at all! Comminucation from the owner Angie was amazing and could not have asked to have dealt with a nicer person. We WILL be returning with the whole family kids and the grand kids and really hope this villa is available then! Massive thank you Angie for every you have done.

This is probably the best Villa we have been to over many many visits to Florida.
It is very spacious and well appointed in its own secluded grounds and not overlooked at all offering complete privacy.
The pool and deck areas are very large giving plenty of space for relaxation. With two hottubs the options for bathing or swimming are tremendous.
The local management are very good although our need to speak were for very minor items and mainly related to the desk top computer. This would be our only criticism in that the desktop was out of commission during our visit. As we had business to attend to during our stay it was a good job we had our laptop with us.
However we understand the owner is attending to this so should not be an ongoing problem.
We found Angie to be very easy and accommodating to deal with and would recommend this villa without hesitation.
