This is a wonderful home away from home ! 15 of us spent an amazing week here ! We celeabrated my daughter 7th birthday here, a birthday she will never forget ! The house was large and spacious. The home was beautifully kept . Nothing was over looked had all the amenities of home ! The pool and hot tub were amazing after a long day in Disney ! The Villa was minutes away from Disney.The drive to the parks were easy and direct! All loved the home away from home and can't wait to return !

We spent 2 1/2 weeks over Easter at the Captain's Retreat on the Terra Verde resort. We had the most amazing holiday which was made even more special by the quality of this house. It's a truly wonderful home, so clean, comfortable and furnished to a really high standard. Normally we stay at high quality hotels but fancied something different for our Florida holiday. Im so glad we did as the Captain's Retreat was far better than any hotel. The resort itself is well kept, and felt really safe with the gated entrance. Most of the theme parks are about 1/2 an hour away, but it's an easy drive as the roads are so simple. We can't wait to come back. Most definitely the best holiday we have ever had!

We just finished our third visit to TV and can't reccommend the resort or management company enough. Every person we came into contact with at the resort was friendly and knowledgeable. Rachael with Unique Florida Homes is wonderful to deal with and has a large assortment of homes to chose from. What I really noticed the most this time was that our villa was spotless, every bathroom, bedroom and all kitchen utensils and appliances were clean. We had just come from a private condo on the Atlantic and their cleaning crew didn't do any where near the same job as the one Rachael uses. The pool area was also very clean with ample loungers and chairs in good condition. Any time we go back to Orlando we will always stay in one of UFH rentals. Another bonus is having Rachael's office right at the clubhouse at TV, so if there is any issues there is very quick assistance.

Just spent 15 nights at a lovely villa at Terra Verde resort, excellent location to all parks and restaurants. The house was the 1st on the resort opposite the gate and across from the clubhouse. We used the clubhouse pool a lot and met up with some great holidaymakers. We had our own pool but liked the setting of the resort one. The villa was great, nicely laid out, plenty of room for us 6 adults, and everything to make our stay perfect. Would recommend both the house and the resort.

First I should make clear that Terraverde is the gated estate made up of lots of privately owned holiday homes, so the property is down to the private owner and the public areas down to Terraverde.
The estate is immaculately maintained with very polite wardens on the gatehouse. The clubhouse is well maintained with a great central pool and adjoining Tiki Bar that serves drinks and snacks. It was lovely having a walk round the lake in the early morning.
The property we stayed in was the one offered by www.myholidayhome.info and this was the perfect holiday home with 4 bedrooms and a pool outside. The house was immaculately maintained and felt much more like staying in a personal home than a holiday let - lots of little touches like plants around the place, ornaments and complimentary supplies of things to get you started. Plenty of towels supplied and a really helpful guide of things to do.

The location is well placed to get to the main resorts (Disneyland , universal studios, etc). There's a Walmart round the corner for buying food (though to be honest they are everywhere!)

We stayed for 10 nights from 16th March 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed the Terra Verde Resort. The location was perfect and the resort itself could not have been better.

Our party of 9 adults stayed in 'The Birmingham Villa' rented directly from the UK owners. Upon arrival at the villa, it became immediately apparent that it was a very long distance from the clubhouse and the facilities that the resort had to offer - in fact it is almost as far away as you could get within the resort. However, with 7 bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms, the villa was easily large enough to accommodate our group and allow us to have our own space. Upon arrival the villa was spotlessly clean and had all the basics - but few of the extra items that most villas offer. Unfortunately, 6 of the bedrooms were upstairs and it quickly became obvious that the air-con was not working in that area and it took 6 days for the problem to be fixed - hence sleepless nights for 7 of our party. What is really annoying is that the engineer let slip that the owners were already aware of the problem but had done nothing about it.

The other major gripe was that the hot tub was not useable for the first 4 or 5 days of our stay. To say the tub was dirty would be an understatement - it had a terrible smell and was full of a brown residue. The ‘south facing’ part of the villa description was also misleading – it actually faces south from the front of the villa!

We emailed the owners upon our return but they were not forthcoming with any offer of recompense for the lack of air-con or hot tub. It also took 2 weeks and two further emails to get our deposit returned.

Despite the shortcomings of the villa itself, we had a fantastic break and could not fault resort itself. We would love to return to Terra Verde Resort without any hesitation but would definitely choose a different villa next time.

Room Tip: Try to choose a villa close to the clubhouse and check reviews of the property before booking

To say that our entire group is missing the house that we stayed at and Terra Verde as a whole would be an understatement. In the two weeks that we stayed at Mike's house, his semi attached 4 bedroom home truly became a home away from home. Modern decor and all of the ammenities that you could ask for made us feel like we were staying in a five star hotel. It was extremely clean and although there were a few issues with pool heat and it did get very warm in the house overnight even though the AC was on, overall, the positives of this property far outweighed the minor issues. The resort itself is perfection. The gated community was made us feel very safe and secure. The ladies in the group felt totally safe walking around the resort at night. The security guards at the gate were super friendly, especially the hawaiian shirt guy! The wildlife is abundent and the clubhouse was also great, with all the ammenities you could ask for incuding a sauna and workout room. The staff there were lovely. The guys in our group, in particular, loved the tiki bar at the clubhouse pool, especially the karaoke nights on the weekend. We all wished it was open a bit later than 10:00 on the weekends because it is a great place to hang out but it is understandable as there were houses closeby. It is in close proximity to disney and shopping with a great wal mart only 5 minutes away and a ross dress for less very close as well. We spent 3 days at disney and it took us less than 20 minutes to get there from our doorstep. My recommendation for eating is the Black Angus Steakhouse in Lake Buena Vista (best steak I have ever had). We got married on this trip which made it super special for us. We love Florida and we will be back and when we are we hope to repeat our accomodations because the memories made in that house were incredibly special!

Room Tip: All the rooms were great. There is a Micky bunkbed room perfect for kids and I slept in the master s...
