Our Third Year Here

Guest:  Cresswell Family (Ontario)  Date of Stay: 09/03./19 (5 week stay)

Our third year here!  Every year we have come something new has been added or done.  So clean, a beautiful home!!  We absolutely love coming here.  Alas, our time here just flies.   Our two granddaughters loved the dolphins in the pool asking ‘Are they here?’   Thanks Alan & Julie for lending us your home again.

Cleanest Vacation House We Have Ever Stayed In

Guest:  Ileys Family (Pennsylvania)  Date of Stay: 02/03/19

Such a lovely home & the cleanest vacation house we have ever stayed in.   We wish we would have had more time to enjoy but instead we did the ‘Disney marathon’  The grandchildren loved the pool & some days just wanted to come back & swim.   Thank you for making our stay feel a little more like home.

Well Equipped & Beautifully Furnished

Guest:  Muller Family (Germany)  Date of Stay: 23/12/18

It was our first time to Florida Gold Villa & we have so enjoyed our time here.   From my first contact with Julie she was so friendly & helpful & sent me all the information we needed.   The moment we arrived we knew we had made the right decision.   It is so well equipped & beautifully furnished, it really feels like home-from-home & especially it was spotlessly clean.  We really enjoyed the pool/jacuzzi & it was beneficial paying for it to be heated.  Such a lovely view to the little lake/pond in the middle, you have complete privacy as the houses the other side of the pond are so far away.   Location wise it is perfect, ideal for trips: The Kennedy Space Centre on the East coast was a spectacular day, Kayaking in the North, Crystal River with the Ardvark Florida Kayak Co., took a lovely boat trip across Lake Dora (one of the lakes in the Harris Chain) through the canal & stopped for lunch at a lakeside bar then came back seaplane & had perfect views of the area from above (booked with Jones Bros. Seaplanes) plus lots more…….. We will return here again – thank you Julie & Alan for making our Christmas & New Year special.

For Us It’s Like Coming Home

Guest:  Peacock Family (UK)  Date of Stay: 09/11/18

So lovely to walk into your beautiful villa once again – for us it’s like coming home.   It’s so central to beaches which Ian loves to fish – he caught quite a few including a small shark about 3ft long he was so pleased.  Also close to parks & of course shopping.   We ate out every day so it was a relaxing holiday.   The refurbished pool is stunning & we will be back again in the not too distant future, when we will be happy to do it all again.  Many thanks for allowing us … yet again to stay in your beautiful villa.

Thrilled With Your Home

Guest:  Singleton & Cook Families  (North Carolina)  Date of Stay: 19/06/18

We are visiting from the mountains of Western North Carolina & we were thrilled with your home!  It made us feel comfortable & at home & after a long day at the Disney parks it was nice to come back to relax by the pool!  We had everything we needed for a wonderful vacation & all the extra touches to the home did not go unnoticed.   We will recommend this home & we hope to come back again soon!

Ideal Location For Exploring The Parks

Guest:  Tunster Family (UK)  Date of Stay: 25/05/18

Another fabulous holiday made possible by this beautiful villa.   Many thanks to Alan & Julie for sharing your home with us.   Ideal location for exploring the parks & surrounding areas & then to come home of an evening to chill & relax poolside – Fabulous !!  Have recommended villa to many colleagues.   Thank you again

Lovely Home To come Back To

Guest: Tallon Family (Canada)  Date of Stay: 20/01/18

They say you’re never too old for a Disney adventure & it turns out they were right!  We had an amazing time exploring & enjoying the parks & sights and those long days of adventure were made all the better when we had your lovely home to come back to in the evenings.   Our family vacation was the perfect blend of busy days & relaxing nights so thank you for making us feel so welcome in your home!   P.S. Old Town was wonderful.

‘Home’ Again At Least That’s What It Feels Like

Guest:  Peacock Family (UK)  Date of Stay: 14/01/18

Weather really cold for this time of year but it didn’t stop us going to Daytona, Cocoa Beach & St Petes the beaches were deserted which was lovely just walked up & down in 66degrees.   Totally different holiday from the busy one it usually is!   Thank you Alan & Julie for allowing us to use your wonderful villa AGAIN we’ll be back in November this year for what we know will be another lovely holiday!   Sorry to be leaving…… looking forward to coming back again.

Happy New Year

Guest:  Snell Family (Ontario Canada)  Date of Stay: 27/12/17

This home provided the perfect mix of busy & relaxed for the best kind of vacation.   We enjoyed full days at the parks & ‘down’ days here swimming & relaxing.   Even in chilly temperatures, our girls loved the pool (warm in winter by Canadian standards)   We loved the ability to cook & eat together to discuss our fun filled days.   Your home is cosy & spacious at the same time.   We were so happy to come ‘home’ after crowded busy days.   Thank you very much.   Happy New Year 2018.

Beautiful Villa

Guest:  Nugent Family (Ireland)  Date of Stay: 12/11/17

We’ve Had A Fantastic Holiday

Guest:  Peacock Family (UK)  Date of Stay: 13/10/17

Thank you very much for allowing us to stay in your wonderful villa – we’ve had a fantastic holiday & it was like coming home every day only warmer weather.  St. Petes is our favourite but we did something different every day.   Weather first week wasn’t so good due to hurricane King Coles but nothing stopped us enjoying ourselves.   Ian loved the fishing.   Sorry to be leaving but happy & looking forward to returning soon.   Thank you once again.

We Survived Irma

Guest:  Brown Family (Newtownards N.Ireland)  Date of Stay: 05/09 to 27/09/17

Well ! Here we are again “We survived Irma” ha-ha.   Thank you so much for your kindness during Irma – we appreciated your phone calls and thoughtfulness.   Again we had a truly wonderful chill out time in your beautiful Florida home.   The condition of the villa shows how hard you both work in keeping it in pristine condition for your guests to enjoy.   Adrian & Mel also work very hard keeping the pool & garden area up to your standards.   Thank you again to all & best wishes for the future.

Truly Lovely Place

Guest:  Raw Family (Teeside UK)  Date of Stay: 20/08/17

We had a lovely time at your villa and it is a truly lovely place with a homely feel about it and with everything we could have possibly needed for our stay, the most comfiest beds ever and the pool area and view of the small lake was amazing.   Location is great and we will definitely be looking to book again when we eventually return.   Thanks again.

Absolutely Wonderful Time

Guest:  Cresswell Family (Ontario, Canada)  Date of Stay: 05/03/17

Christmas & New Year

Guest:  Quinn Family (Wales, U.K.)  Date of Stay: 20/12/16

Our son & his family stayed here in August 2016 & recommended this home to us.   We really enjoyed our stay here & loved the Xmas tree & decors.   Thank you for letting us rent your beautiful home.

We Loved It

Guest:  Higgs Family (Marietta, GA)  Date of Stay: 20/11/16

Lovely Experience

Guest:  Caddle Family (Essex, England, U.K.)  Date of Stay: 24/08/16

This was our first stay in this villa and we all loved it!   ‘Thank you’ for such a lovely experience having 3 bathrooms between us made life so much easier.   Great location for restaurants, shops and the parks.   Hope to return in the future!!

Second Stay

Guest:   Pelley Family (Newfoundland, Canada)  Date of Stay: 15/08/16

This was our second stay at this home and once again we had a great time.   This trip was shorter but more relaxing because we skipped the theme parks and we choose a cruise instead.   We went to ‘Old Town’ and the kids loved the rides.   We also took them to ‘Ripley’s Believe It o Not’.   Our favorite buffet is still the ‘Golden Corral’.   Best shopping is still ‘Ross’.   Thanks again for letting us rent your beautiful villa!

Beautiful Villa

Guest:   Quinn Family (Wales U.K.)  Date of Stay: 02/08/16

Another Fab Stay

Guest:   Clarke Family (U.K.)  Date of Stay: 20/07/16

Another fab stay is this homely villa.   Just love this place, home from home!   Great location, lots of lovely places to eat!   Longhorn the best steakhouse we have found on 192.   Loop restaurants are great and shopping is good too.   Looking forward to next year already – see you in 2017.

A Home from Home

Guest:   Sharples Family (U.K.)  Date of Stay: 30/06/16

Thank you for a lovely 2 weeks, it was a home from home.   The 2 issues we had were dealt with very quickly and without issue.   The only downside is not being able to BBQ on the patio but that’s the law I guess!   Sadly now it’s time to go home :c  thanks again

Your Gorgeous Villa

Guest:   Trengrouse Family (Scotland U.K.)  Date of Stay: 14/06/16

Thank you for a lovely two week stay in your gorgeous villa.   It quickly felt like home and we won’t hesitate to recommend to family and friends.   We will be back.

It’s Wonderful !!

Guest:   Tsang Family (Plymouth, England U.K.)  Date of Stay: 01/05/16

Just wanted to let you know that the villa has been everything we were expecting & more.   It’s wonderful!!   It was our first time visiting Florida & the family have really enjoyed the stay here & the freedom it offers 🙂   We enjoyed going to Disney & especially looked forward to coming home after a long day out.   The kids really enjoyed your lovely pool & sleeping in the beautiful comfy rooms – we hope to return again in the future.   We will be recommending you to family & friends

The Holiday of a Lifetime

Guest:   Tunster Family (Bridgend, Wales, U.K.)  Date of Stay: 15/04/16

Thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful Kissimmee home which enabled us to enjoy the holiday of a lifetime.   It’s plain to see the pride you take in your villa and everything was ‘spot on’.   Your management company was more than helpful and always made sure that everything was o.k.   You’ve obviously thought of everything and it shows.   Recommended to all my work colleagues

One of the Best

Guest:   Phee Family (Motherwell, Scoland, U.K.)  Date of Stay: 01/04/16

This has to be one of the best villa’s we have ever stayed in everything you need is here including one of the most comprehensive information packs. Thanks to you & your Management team for a lovely stay hope to be back in a couple of years.

Super Deluxe Villa!One of the Best

Guest:   Peters & James Families (Limburg, Netherlands)  Date of Stay: 01/02/16

We loved staying in your super deluxe villa!   The kids loved the pool & we loved the rest 🙂   Everything we needed was here.   We have been to Disney’s Magic Kingdom – it was great – lots of love

Location Was Perfect

Guest:   Kristy & Family (Slidell, L.A.)  Date of Stay: 07/11/15

This was our first time staying in this villa, but it will certainly not be our last!   The location was perfect … Close to Disney Parks as well as Universal.   Several dining options were located just a short ride away.   Walmart and Walgreens were also conveniently located.   The home provided ample space for our family of 5.   We could easily have accommodated 8 people.   The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed.   We also enjoyed the DVD’s, video games and board games that were provided for our use.   The pool and spa also provided a great way to relax after spending hours at the busy parks.   My only complaint was that I was expecting the spa to be more of a ‘hot tub’, however, it was still greatly enjoyed by my family especially my 4 year old.   I would also mention the excellent service we received from maintenance.   Upon arrival our cable television was not working we called maintenance and he helped him to troubleshoot the problem.   I would definitely recommend this property to others!   We travel frequently and have never been as impressed with a rental property as we were with this one.   Can’t wait to return!!!

Even Better Than We Hoped For

Guest:   Altringham Family (Essex, England U.K.)  Date of Stay: 13/09/15

Wonderful villa overlooking the lake, ideally situated for shops, restaurants and theme parks.   The villa has everything you could possibly want/need, so comfortable too.   Pool/Spa perfect.   Will definitely recommend to friends and family.   Great stay thank you.

Beautiful Home from Home

Guest:   Fage Family (Kent & Essex, England U.k.)  Date of Stay: 14/08/15

This was our second visit to this villa having stayed here in 2012.   Still the same tranquil surroundings and a beautiful home from home.   Very handy for all the things you need including theme parks and restaurants.   Great pool for the days when you want to relax and chill out.

Second Stay

Guest:   Galt Family (Glasgow, Scotland U.K.)  Date of Stay: 10/07/15

Second time in this fabulous villa it is so comfortable.   Couldn’t ask for anything more.   Loved the new washing machine/tumble dryer wish we had ones as big at home.   Thank you again for letting us stay in your lovely home.

We Love this Home

Guest:   Wade Family (Crowley & Justin TX)  Date of Stay: 01/07/15

We love staying in this home!!!  This was our third visit and we can’t imagine staying anywhere else.   We are already planning our next trip!!

Fantastic Vacation Home

Guest:   Pelley & Horwood Families (Newfoundland, Canada)  Date of Stay: 20/04/15

Thank you so much for providing us with this wonderful accommodation for our Florida vacation.   We travelled as two families of 4 and found your home to be very spacious, beautifully furnished and well equipped for all of our needs.   The location is perfect since it is so close to all the parks, shopping and dining while also being just far enough away from the busy traffic area to allow for quiet relaxation.   The patio and pool/spa offers a nice private setting overlooking the pond and was enjoyed greatly by the kids and adults alike.   Overall we had a very comfortable stay and were highly pleased with this villa.   In addition we can say that the owners were excellent people to deal with.   They were prompt and courteous at answering our questions, which als helped make for a pleasant rental experience.   We will definitely looking forward to staying here again and will certainly recommend it to others.

Great Family Gathering

Guest:   Sandra & sisters (USA)  Date of Stay: 06/04/15

My sisters & I get together for vacations once a year and this is our 4th time staying here. Before this my kids were younger and we would book this home for our vacations ever since 1999……….We love coming here it is like coming home.

Great Vacation Home

Guest:   Brostowitz Family (Solon Springs WI)  Date of Stay: 28/03/15

Thank you for letting our family stay at your home.   We have been coming to the area for 9 years and would never stay at an hotel again.   Being so close to all the theme parks and to shopping was a plus!   The heated pool and spa were so relaxing after a long day at Disney.   Would for sure stay again and recommend to others.   Thank you!

House was Wonderful

Guest:   Graver Family & friends (Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada)  Date of Stay: 22/03/15

Great place to stay – Kids loved Shamu – Great weather – House was wonderful – Built fond memories – Loved pool and spa – Nice to come back from busy day & chill by pool area – Thank You.

Great Place to Stay

Guest:   Lake Family (GA)  Date of Stay: 22/11/14

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your wonderful villa. The location was great, minutes to Disney, food etc. and it had everything we needed. The place was clean and loved having the heated pool and jacuzzi after a long day of walking. Would recommend for others looking for a convenient high quality place near Disney. We will be booking again!

Fab Stay

Guest:   Kelly/McKenna Famiies (Ireland) )  Date of Stay: 15/10/14

Had a fab stay at your home.   Thanks again.

Fantastic Home

Guest:   Archer Family (South Wales, UK) )  Date of Stay: 25/08/14

We all had a fantastic holiday and staying in your beautiful home made it.   I cannot think of one thing in your home that could have made it any better, everything that you could ever need was there.   You have thought of everything.   We especially enjoyed the pool & didn’t miss a day ‘having a dip’.

What a Fabulous Villa

Guest:   Quinn Family (Neath, South Wales, UK) )  Date of Stay: 12/08/14

This was the perfect house for 2 Grandparents, 3 adults and 2 grandkids. Disney was only 15 minutes away and there was a pool for when we got back. The girls had a great Mickey Mouse room with their Mom and Dad in the next room, and the Grandparents and unmarried son were on the other side of the house, each with our own bathroom. The house is in a quiet development on an out of the way road, with stores and restaurants just 2 miles away. It was beautifully decorated with 1800 sq feet of space. It was very clean and has a great floorplan. My architect son and my discerning wife both approved. I can’t say enough about it. We will be staying there again and I will be recommending it to my friends.

Love this Villa

Guest:   Clarke Family (Wigan, UK )  Date of Stay: 12/07/14

We just love this villa, the description on the website is very accurate for the facilities in the villa and surrounding location. This villa offers a home from home for your vacation and we have stayed here every time we have visited Florida. This was our 5th visit to Florida and so our 5th visit to this great villa. The location is perfect, just 10 mins to Disney parks and 30mins max to IOA and Universal. The 192 is minutes away by car (which is essential) and offers a large choice of eateries such as chilli’s (2 for 1 on cocktails), longhorn (amazing steaks), macaroni grill and olive gardens (lovely italian food especially the lasagne at Olive gardens) most of which offer a take away option if you prefer to eat back at the villa with a beer. There are plenty of fast food/take away places to choose from too. Supermarket is also minutes away to stock up on those essentials and there are plenty of outlet villages and shopping malls within easy distance to spend those dollars. The property itself is a real ‘home from home’ with great facilities. It has a very spacious comfortable living and dining area, huge TV and plenty of DVD’s to watch after long days out. All the bedrooms are comfortable and have plenty of storage for clothes and purchases. The kitchen has all the necessary equipment, including dishwasher, if you want to eat in, and a huge fridge to keep your beers cold! Laundry room is great to keep on top of towel washes , etc. The outside facilities are also of a high standard and well maintained. The pool and outside space are just lovely to relax in the hot Florida sun or sit in the jacuzzi when the sun has gone down. The great thing about this villa is that it’s in a quiet area away from the hustle and bustle of the parks and attractions yet close enough that getting to them isn’t an ordeal. Our kids are 10 and 14 but we have been here since they were much younger. The villa is suitable for pretty much any age group of family unit, in my opinion. I have and will continue to recommend this villa to friends and family visiting the area. We wouldn’t consider staying anywhere else as this lovely home has everything we need for a great family holiday and will be booking again asap! The owner is lovely and has always been quick to respond to e mails etc and the management company looking after the villa are great and only a phone call away for advice if you need them. Can’t wait to go back!!

Great Stay

Excellent Villa in good location with all amenities

Guest:   Brown Family (Tyne & Wear, UK)   Date of Stay: 04/06/14

This is the second time we have stayed in this villa and once again it did not disappoint. The villa is a home from home, well equipped (with everything you would want whether at home or on holiday) and great home entertainment facilities. The pool area is well furnished, clean and comfortable with lovely west facing view over the lake, just right for sitting and relaxing watching the sunset in the evening. The owners were very helpful and their website gives a good accurate description of the villa. We have stayed in this area many times as we feel this is well located away from the hustle and bustle but within 15 minutes of Disney and 5 minutes from Wal-Mart and the 192 and with easy access routes to International Drive and SeaWorld. We have stayed in many villas in Kissimmee and surrounding area and this villa is definitely in our top 3 that we have stayed in and one we would return to without hesitation. It goes without saying we would recommend this villa to anyone.

Craig & Family

Guest:   Shackleton Family (Macclesfield UK)   Date of Stay: 21/05/14

This villa we stayed in six years ago is still as wonderful as it was back then. There is everything you need, close to all the parks, Walmarts. I would recommend it to all you will not be let down


Guest:   Laffey Family (Cheshire UK)   Date of Stay: 04/04/14

Excellent villa with everything required for a great vacation. The villa was spotless on arrival and the pool heated, family home, great location what more could you ask for. Owners and management team did everything they could to ensure a great it me was had, thank you so much! Highly recommended.

Nice Winter Getaway

Guest:  Goetz Family (NY)   Date of Stay: 06/03/14

We were all pleasantly surprised with the comfort level of this vacation home. It is beautifully decorated and has everything you need while away from home. We all enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi after a busy day seeing the sights of central Florida. All in all, a great place to stay for your Florida vacation!

Great Orientated Home

Guest: Simonich Family (MI)   Date of Stay: 28/12/13

Although the weather was cool and rainy for some our stay we were very comfortable from the movies, to games, to the pool. The pool temperature even allowed us to swim on a 47 degree day.

Awesome Vacation

Guest: Glickel Family (NJ)   Date of Stay: 20/12/13

I would like to thank Alan & Julie for allowing us to rent their beautiful villa for our Christmas holiday. My family of 5, including a 2 year old (who loved the Mickey Room) had what was as close to a Christmas holiday as being at home as anyone could ask for. We arrived to a beatifully decorated home, even with some holiday decorations on the front flower bed. everything was absolutely perfect, clean and the pool was awesome. We spent 2 complete days of our 7 days just relaxing at the house and it felt like a home away from home. We cannot wait to return in the future and will definately let our frinds know about your place. Thanks again!!

Fantastic Week

Guest: Dummula Family (Kansas & India)   Date of Stay: 31/10/2013

Thank you for a fantastic week.   My family had a great time staying in your home.   4 of my family members were visiting FL for the first time from India.   On previous visits to the US they had a tough time eating American food, they totally felt at home, the kitchen was very well equipped & we were able to find everything we needed for cooking.   The swimming pool was crystal clean & as shown on the website.   Beds were extremely comfortable & the home was given to us sparkling clean.   Overall, the house made our trip a very memorable one.  Thank you.

Beautiful Villa

Guest: Eddie Group (U.K.)   Date of Stay: 12/10/2013

Thanks for a fantastic week!  Everything was as expected!

Beautiful Villa

Guest: Siobhan & family (Wales, U.K.)   Date of Stay: 06/06/2013

Staying in such a beautiful and comfortable villa made our holiday the best family vacation we have ever been on. There was 9 people in our group which included a 13 month old baby boy so staying somewhere which felt like home helped tremendously, the beds were all so comfy and the management company were friendly and easy to contact. I would definately recommend the villa and will hopefully be going back in the near future

Beautiful Home

Guest: Charnley family (U.K.)   Date of Stay: 04/20/2013

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home, it is very warm & friendly.   We loved the pool & the weather has been really nice.   It is a lovely home to come back to after a long day at the parks.

We Love this Place

Guest: Acker family (Michigan, USA)   Date of Stay: 04/05/2013

I’m not sure what more I can say that I haven’t already said in previous posts.   We love this place!!   This is our 9th or 10th time staying here.   It welcomes us the moment we walk in the front door.   Thanks again for the opportunity to stay here.   We treasure every precious memory we’ve made here.

Softball College Spring Tournament

Guest: Laflam family (New Hampshire USA – where it’s snowing today…….)   Date of Stay: 03/15/2013

Nice 6 days (one rainy) for our daughters Softball College Spring Tournament here in Orlando – house spot on clean & comfortable …….. thanks!

Awesome Getaway Experience

Guest: James & friends (Manitoba, Canada & Scotland, U.K.)   Date of Stay: 02/23/2013

This location is a quiet gem. Located in liberty village it is very close to restaurants, shopping, disney and exceptional golf courses. Seemed like we were no more than 15-20 minutes away from anything we wanted to do. House is immaculate with loads of room for 8. Kitchen was well stocked with most items needed to cook. Pool and jacuzzi were awesome after a long day on the golf course. Loved the patio first thing in the morning and in the evening for some quiet conversation. Very quiet neighbourhood. I have rented a number of properties before and this one ranks at the top. Great owner who is very accomodating. Thanks Julie.

Totally Enjoyed the Experience of Staying in this Home

Guest: Karrie, Lorne & Family (Saskatchewan)   Date of Stay: 12/12/12

We wanted to write a review to say our family totally enjoyed the experience of staying in this home.  Our children appreciated the space, and we enjoyed the number of bathrooms.  When we arrived, I thought the house was well represented by the photos; so what you see is what you get.  The kitchen is well equipped, with everything being well cared for.  The area is quiet, and we felt very safe.    We have stayed in condos before, and felt the space and privacy the house with a pool provided was far superior.

What a Great Home

Guest: Wisdorf (MN)   Date of Stay: 10/17/12

What a great home!  We had a fantastic vacation and it was so nice to be able to come ‘home’ after busy days at the parks!  The kids loved the pool and they fed the ducks each morning if they were here.  She laid 3 eggs during our stay.  I hope they hatch ok.   Thank you for everything!

Fantastic Time

Guest: Auffrey (Canada)   Date of Stay: 10/01/12

Fantastic time.  Incredible weather.   House was everything we hoped + more.  Kids loved the pool.  Everything was so clean & well kept we all felt we were at our own home.  Hope to return another year.  Disney was fun & very tiring.  Love the ducks, fed white bread moistened plus fresh water daily – hope the next guests will do the same.  Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Home Away From Home

Guest: Dunaway (Ohio)   Date of Stay: 09/14/12

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful relaxing vacation at this beautiful home. My 3 year old grandson especially enjoyed the Mickey and Minnie themed room and thought it was designed just for him. The layout of the home was very comfortable for multiple families. Kitchen had every thing we needed.Pool was beautiful. Instructions throughout the house for various things were helpful. Everything was very clean and well maintained. Julie was extremely easy to work with, answering many questions. The location was close enough to the airport, Disney, and many other area attractions.

Lovely Vacation Home

Guest: Kam (Essex, UK)   Date of Stay: 08/24/12

This was our first stay in a florida villa and we were delighted with the property. It was clean, tidy and well maintained with nice furnishings and fittings. The little touches made this feel like someone’s home rather than a rental property; for example, the large collection of DVDs, the cable television, free calls, reading books, tourist guide and board games. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of crockery and cutlery including plastic glasses for use by the pool. The beds were comfortable and clean and the reclining suede sofas in the living room were also comfortable. The large screen TV was great; especially to watch the latest hurricane news! The Bose speakers were excellent for DVDs. The swimming pool was great and a good collection of poolside furniture was provided with plenty of pool towels and pool toys (balls, rings, floats). Julie was very helpful during the booking process and we would be happy to stay here again.

Great Vacation Home

Guest: SS (Ontario)   Date of Stay: 08/12/12

First time renting this florida villa and the owners were very helpful in communicating details thoroughly and promptly. Our stay was comfortable and relaxing, as the home had great furnishings, a spacious layout and the décor was warm and inviting. We all enjoyed the pool and the view of the pond was a major plus! Great location, great stay. This was our first stay in a villa

very easy to get to all the theme parks

Guest: Haynes (UK)   Date of Stay: 07/28/12

Have stayed here twice now and each time we have not been disappointed. The villa is exactly as described – clean, well maintained, and furnished to a high standard. Everything you could possibly need is provided – it really does feel like ‘home’ – love the new reclining sofas. We really enjoy the pool and Jacuzzi. It is well situated, and very easy to get to all the theme parks. There are quite a few grocery stores nearby i.e. Wal-Mart, Publix and a different restaurant for every night of your stay! The booking is very easy to do as Julie is a very helpful and friendly lady. I would definitely recommend this villa as our vacations here have been so relaxing and enjoyable.

the best holiday ever!

Guest: Ray G. (UK)   Date of Stay: 06/30/12

This was our 5th Florida holiday, and we have always stayed in a villa; but this was the best yet! The villa was exactly as described – clean, well maintained, and furnished to a high standard. After a couple of days it didnt feel like a holiday villa – more like our ‘home’!  There was ample space for 5 people, and my sons (age 21 and 18) particularly liked the reclining chairs/sofas, after a hard day’s theme park assault 😉 The villa is located in a lovely neighbourhood, and is very quiet. It is well situated, and getting to the theme parks was a breeze. Julie was very helpful when making the booking and made us feel very welcome. I would thoroughly recommend the villa and would definitely book again.

Family of 5

Guest: BP (Wickliffe,Ohio)   Date of Stay: 06/16/12

We had a perfect stay in this home ,the decor was very nice as well. We even had a guard duck (nesting 10 eggs at the front doors garden area, hope she is doing well) greeting us in all our comings and goings. We hit Universal and Disney parks. Adventured to Clearwater Beach and Daytona Beach for rest days between Parks when we were not resting in the pool or jacuzzi. We highly recommend this home and would come here again if we visit the Orlando area in the future.


Guest: Sandy (Conneticut)   Date of Stay: 04/13/12

Yearly return to Florida over the past 14 years and have returned to this home several times. Very comfortable and roomy. Over the years we have brought along our children, mom and dad, and reunited with family this year. The house is clean and user friendly. Close to the parks and fair distance to other area attractions. Groceries, shopping malls and eating establishments nearby. Any noted problems they are addressed right away.

Amazing vacation home!

Guest: Debbie (Michigan)   Date of Stay: 03/24/12

I cannot say enough good about this home. We have been visiting here since the home was brand new and we can’t imagine staying anywhere else. The most important factor is the wonderful owners you will work with. They are kind, fair people who strive to keep their home up to very high standards. They want your stay to be enjoyable and work hard to provide one that will meet all your needs. The pool and jacuzzi are wonderful and used daily during our vacations there. We love the fact that it is right outside our door. There is no need to pack a bag with toys, suits, towels, etc. and head to a community pool when your own private area is steps from your living space. Plus, you can swim as early or as late as you want! The home itself is outstanding. The owner has purchased just the right furnishings to make it warm, inviting, and comfortable. Four beautifully furnished bedrooms await you. Each have ample closet and dresser space and all are furnished with TV’s. A gaming system is installed in one bedroom and most have VCR/DVD’s in them. The owners have provided a large selection of DVD’s for those days or evenings when you want to stay in and relax. A new big screen TV and Bose system were recently installed, which makes viewing those movies most enjoyable. The kitchen supplies everything you could need for a lovely meal in. A washer and dryer are provided, which is instrumental in not having suitcases full of dirty clothes when you arrive back home! My family has made the most precious memories vacationing in this beautiful home. We all consider it our “home away from home.” We appreciate the owner’s willingness to share her lovely home with us. If you are considering renting a vacation villa, this is the one you want. I promise you will not be disappointed!

Canadian Ladies on holiday

Guest: nanapaula (Northern Ontario,Canada)   Date of Stay: 03/03/12

After a week long cruise,this luxurious home was the perfect place to unwind and relax by the pool,enjoy the privacy of not having to share a bedroom. The quiet residential location was ideal for morning strolls and yet only minutes from shopping,restaurants,theme parks etc We hosted a dinner party for ten and had absolutely everything we could ask for right down to the napkin rings-these owners have thought of everything. Don’t let the beautiful decor fool you-this home is very child friendly.I can’t wait to book again next year and bring my grandkids

Visitors from Minnesota

Guest: BB Farms (Cottage Grove, MN USA)   Date of Stay: 02/15/12

My family (7 of us) spent 6 days in this beautiful villa. This was the first time we rented anything through VRBO. I was extremely leery but everything worked out perfectly! The owners are fabulous to work with and very helpful. The home itself was immaculately clean (my sister and I are clean freaks, so if we say it was clean – it was clean!) The villa is nicely decorated and kept up-to-date. The pool and Jacuzzi are such a treat to come back to after long days of being a tourist. The Disney theme parks are a short drive away and easy to get to. You can find grocery stores, Wal-Mart, Target, lots of restaurants – everything you need within only a few miles. It’s the perfect location and a nice quiet neighborhood. Highly recommend giving this villa a try! Thank you Julie and Alan for an unforgettable vacation!

A beautiful home from home

Guest: Paul Hughes (South Wales UK)   Date of Stay:  Oct10

Having been desperately disappointed with a supposedly 5* hotel in New York, what a wonderful surprise to arrive at such a beautiful home from home.   Everything is just perfect!   Seems we are having a bit of a heat wave at the moment – enjoying the pool / jacuzzi and just off to the Malls so my daughters can make me weep!

Fantastic Home

Guest: Engle (Belgium)   Date of Stay: 09/17/09

We stayed at this fantastic home last winter with our children and grandchildren. The location was great, easy access for everything. The home is beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the comforts of home while we stayed here. Our grandchildren enjoyed being able to use the pool everyday.

Spotlessly Clean

Guest: The Glendinnings & Jamie Saville (UK)   Date of Stay: 08/08/09

House fabulous. Management company excellent. All home comforts & spotlessly clean!  Had an amazing time.   This is our 13th visit to Florida & as always brilliant!  Fed the resident ducks on a daily basis.  Stayed in many villas & this was one of the best, will definately use again & recommend to friends.  Thanks for a wonderful time

Top of our favorites!!!

Guest: Betsy Paquette (Lowell, Ma)   Date of Stay: 03/21/09

We have spent two weeks here in February of 2008 and February of 2009 – we are booked for the same two weeks of February 2010 – it is a lovely villa – cannot say enough good about it – we have rented many places and this is at the top of our favorites!!!

Best Villa in the area

Guest: Webio (Glasgow, Scotland)   Date of Stay: 08/03/08

We spent 3 weeks here in 2006 and again for 3 weeks this year, just returning last week. This is without a doubt the best villa in the area. It has everything you need for a memorable holiday and the decor and furnishings are to the highest standard.The location is close enough, but just far enough away from all the hustle and bustle of the parks and the wildlife at the little lake is awesome. We fed cranes, herons and ducks(which laid eggs within the garden)and we had eagles sitting on the street lights on a regular basis and little tree frogs bouncing about the front garden. I would recommend anyone looking at this property to book it, as you’ll not find a nicer property and the management company and owners are great to deal with. The villa is immaculately clean and an absolute joy to come home to every night. We’ve stayed in 4 different properties previously and none are a patch on this villa.
