Fabulous villa. More than enough space for up 8 people. Comfy beds. TV's galore so no arguing on what to watch. Nice sized pool [great heated for evening dips], plenty of pool toys to keep kids of all ages amused. Sun trap from around 9.30 til sun down. 15 mins drive to Disney, 35 mins to Universal, around an hour to Busch Gardens.
Ideal Florida hideaway
Very good property. Location very good with easy access to Disney and Universal. Local neighbourhood peaceful. The property is large - personally we found it a bit too big, and didn't use half of the rooms! Decor was good, beds were comfortable. There were a few minor niggles, which is why I have knocked off one star namely:
- one of the pool toys seem to deposit it's filling into the pool (which meant I had to do a lot of cleaning of the pool)
- the water dispenser on the fridge was difficult to use without spilling water (I think this is a design issue but maybe I'm not just very good at using it!)
- one of the beds had hairs on the sheets on arrival.
- most of the TV remotes had no batteries (sorted with a call to the management company within a couple of days)
As you can see, these are not really issues with the property as such, but given these issues I couldn't justify 5 stars.
Overall, the property was really nice. Very nicely furnished, really comfy sofas, good dining space, and very well stocked in terms of pans, cutlery etc. The owners called during our stay to check everything was ok, and were responsive to my requests. The owners seemed very nice.
The games room was great - nice that it was carpeted and had a sofa in it too - felt like a properly family room, as opposed to the more usual games room in a garage.
The water dispenser was fab (other than the spillages). It saved us loads of money and hassle as we didn't have to buy bottled water.
Overall, I would recommend this property, it's a good property in a good location (with the benefit of not many traffic lights between the property and the Disney parks, and the roads were relatively quiet)
The house was great. Would definitely book again when in Orlando. Only negative thing was that there was a mix up on our check in date and we arrived without the house being cleaned.
wow wow wow what a great villa, it's not a villa it's a home from home, th villa is located in a residential area and the neighbors make you welcome and very friendly. The location is great for access to all the parks. The facility's in the villa are great and it's clean tidy and welcoming. Some days we even charged are plans and spent the day lazing around the pool. From start to finish booking this villa was easy and the communications from the owners was simple.
One recommendation from the wife could u supply a clothes airier hanging the washing up was a pain and that was are only issue and that is so minor.
If your going to Florida looking to book a villa and you can book this one you won't be disappointed. Thinking about booking it get it booked before someone else done its fantastic and we will be going back,
Many many thanks Angela & Andrew
We have made many visits to this area over the years, during which our family have grown up and had children of their own, so this trip included 3 generations, and it was perfect. The location was great for the local attractions and shopping and restaurants. The villa was comfortable, clean and very well equipped. The owners had thought of everything - including a kettle for us Brits! The pool was very pleasant, and well heated (necessary at this time of year). All in all we had a fabulous stay, and I have to give special praise to the owners for their unfailingly prompt and courteous responses to my many queries.
This home was one of the nicest we have stayed at. Very clean and we'll kept. Neighbourhood was quiet. Management company was great to deal with and very accommodating. The backyard wasn't very private, not that it was an issue as no one was around. The A/C could have been a little colder as well. Overall a lovely place to stay and we would definitely recommend to families, families with small children and couples travelling together. We had a two year old and an eight month old and the house was perfect for little ones. Thanks for a great vacation home!!
8 of us stayed for 2 weeks,from the off Angela the owner was very good at keeping in contact and providing everything we needed to know,it was our first time in a villa and it was beyond our expectations,close to parks and the 192 and i4,i enjoyed the fact it was home from home,only couple miles to nearest publix supermarket although I would recommend going to Walmart for a bigger shop (a lot cheaper),the villa was nice and clean and big,we didn't use the front room or dining room,we all sat around the dining area and living room.angela did advise to have the heating for the pool,and we wish we had,it was cold but still jumped in a few times,we just enjoyed sitting by the pool with a few beers after a long day in the parks,we would recommend this villa to anyone,we're going back to Orlando in October but as its only 3 of us the villa is too big,but if we're ever going with friends again I wouldn't hesitate to use the villa again,we can't find any faults,my wife,our toddler and myself had the master bedroom,don't think I've ever slept in such a big bed,we found it very comfortable and was nice having the fan above the bed,( I could roll over 3 times and still be nowhere near my wife) was also nice having a shower and bath in our en suite.easy to find once we realised the junctions on the i4 had changed,need to come off at junction 64 not 28.was really gutted when our holiday ended.
