A True Paradise
Tony D Hammonton, New Jersey, April 2015
What a great place to stay that is reasonably close to World Disney World. Our family stayed here. We have 2 grandchildren - ages 3 1/2 and 8. There was plenty of room for our party of 8. Everything you need is here even items for baby/toddler. We decided to have the pool and spa heated. We thoroughly enjoyed it when we returned from the park. this home is close to restaurants, grocery stores and a Super WalMart. The home is very comfortable, nicely decorated and well furnished. We hope to return some day. You cannot lose by staying here. The owner is extremely easy to work with. It was the best thing we could have done. It made our trip that much better.
Thanks Anthony for your review, we are so happy that you had a great time and we would be happy to have you back at any time as a guest of Mickeys Paradise.
Just wanted to let you know that we thought your villa
Clare Wood - March 2011
Just wanted to let you know that we thought your villa was just wonderful, exactly as we would have dreamed for. It was extremely well equipped and a real home from home. The children (and the big kids!) loved the pool and the games room, it was lovey way to relax at the end of a busy day also thank you for the Sat Nav , it was such a life saver, wouldn't have been without it.
Thank you also for your extremely efficient booking processes and sending your great information pack which just added to the ease and enjoyment of our holiday.
I will definitely recommend you to my friends and hopeful be able to use your villa again in the future.
When we arrived at Mickey's Paradise we immediately
Thanks Les Sharrock and Family March 2011
When we arrived at Mickey's Paradise we immediately fell in love with this spacious accommodation. Although it is in a quiet cul-de-sac it is close to all Orlando's attractions as well as restaurants and supermarkets. It has everything for a perfect family holiday including a well-equipped games room, DVD player with DVDs and play station 3 with games. There is also a good sized swimming pool which we couldn’t keep the children out of, especially at night as the colour changing LED lights made for a perfect early evening swim. The owners, Sophie and Warren, had thought of everything including a comprehensive package that helped us plan our stay. The service was excellent from booking the holiday to our departure. We will definitely be visiting again!
"The Perfect Holiday"
Chris Holyoake - Janury 2011
This is a fantastic place to stay. Every little thing has been thought of and provided. The rooms are all comfortable, clean and spacious. Plentiful bedding and towels are available for every room. We had small children with us and the bedroom they used was full of toys which instantly overcame any strangeness of surroundings. Extra nice touches for keeping in contact are the free internet and telephone, even for international calls. We had the heat on in the pool and jacuzzi and used it until late in the evening. Luxurious. The villa is situated within easy access of everything and the well planned book of information we were given helped immensely. We will certainly be returning.
Wow it was fantastic:
The Williams Family from Auckland, New Zealand - Jan '11
Moved into the villa after 8 days at a Disney hotel and it was marvelous, clean and well appointed. The Disney hotel seemed like a good idea when we were doing our planning but it was a mistake. The villa was the way to go. The facilities were excellent and we all enjoyed the heated pool despite it being winter in Orlando. The Wi-Fi and games room were a huge hit with both the children and adults. Great to be able to relax after hectic days on the parks and to be able to have some "home" cooking as the food in the parks isn't always the best.
sean le gros and friends from bolton, manchester - Sept 10
stayed at the villa in september 2010 and in one word was brilliant. couldnt of asked for a better place to stay after a long day at the theme parks or just to relax when you need to put your feet up. the pool area is fantastic, awesome at the evening with heating and lighting. idealy located to all major attractions. will definitly be recommending to family and friends and will surely be visiting again in the very near future. thank you Sophie and Warren for letting us stay at your wonderful home :-)
The villa exceeded all expectations and was even better
The Price Family - August 2010
The villa exceeded all expectations and was even better than the photos and virtual tour on the website. It had everything you could possibly want and more - beach towels, pool shoes, I-pod dock to mention just a few. The free international phone calls and internet and wi fi were a great bonus. The villa was meticulously clean and to a very high standard. Our party consisted of adults, teenagers and children and all needs and expectations were met. The location was perfect for visiting the theme parks and all were easily reached. The pool was private and secluded from the neighbors properties which is a great bonus in Florida. Service from Sophie the owner was efficient, fast and honest which made our first visit to Florida less of a concern. The personalised welcome pack sent about two weeks before our holiday gave vital information and helped with the day to day worries of travelling abroad. I would definitely return to this villa and would recommend it to friends and family. Infact I already have! A great villa with a touch of luxury - the best accommodation we have ever stayed in. It definitely has the wow factor!

We have already re booked for 2012
The Durn Family - July 2010
After booking the villa Sophie and Warren look after you every step of the way to ensure your stay is as memorable as possible.After a long flight it was amazing to step into such a luxury palace. From the comfort of all the rooms to the stunning pool and jacuzzi outside everything is there to help make your stay comfortable. The size meant we all had our own rooms and bathrooms so there was no waiting in the mornings before we headed out to explore the theme parks. There is plenty to keep the kids entertained and lots of dvd's if you fancy a lazy evening in.We are definately going back and in Warren and Sophie we believe have made friends who will go to the ends of the earth to make your Florida holiday one you will remember forever.
We have already re booked for 2012

2nd Visit to Mickeys
Huighes and Latham Family April '10
Thank you Sophie and Warren for yet another wonderful holiday in Mickeys Paradise. We had a fantastic 3 weeks stay which was made relaxing by making full use of the pool, games room and all the facilities at the club house. The villa is an excellent and spacious base from which to explore Central Florida and all the theme parks. Due to the ash cloud we had an extended stay and you, and the management company, were so kind and helpful in a difficult time. We will be returning to Mickeys Paradise yet again in 2012, it can't come soon enough!
Our first visit to Florida
The George Family June 2010
Hi Sophie& Warren,
Quick note to let you know that we have all returned safely to the UK, albeit far too soon for our liking!!
As you know this was our first visit to Florida and each and everyone of us enjoyed it way more than we could ever believe possible. Orlando’s attractions are second to none, however a big contributor to the fun we enjoyed on our family holiday was your fantastic villa. It has everything we could possibly hope for – from the washing machine to the games room and best of all the swimming pool. You will definitely be hearing from us again as we plan to revisit within the next couple of years.
I would also like to express my gratitude to you for the helpful advice you provided prior to our departure, it was really helpful. I would also like to give my thanks for your generous offer to re arrange the rental period when it appeared that we may not be able to fly as a result of the volcanic ash. Your kind gesture was very much appreciated by all of us.
The George Family has re booked for 2011!
This was our first holiday that we booked ourselves !
The O’Connor’s May 2010
We just wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you.
It was our first holiday that we booked ourselves not through a travel agent and we were nervous about choosing the villa. All I can say is that you made it SO easy. Dealing with you guys was far easier than dealing with a travel agent. Your welcome pack which was posted to us a few weeks before we set off made things so easy. We were able to pre plan what parks to go to etc.
Your villa was perfect for our family. As we had 3 young children safety was a high priority on our list, your gated pool made life so much easier for us. The villa was spotless and had everything we needed and more. As we had two young babies you arranged an extra cot and high chair with no extra charge. The toys, games, swimming equipment made it a home away from home, especially for the kids.
We will definitely be back again and would have no hesitation in recommending your villa to any family and friends.
We Would Definitely Recommend Mickeys Paradise
The McCormick Family Holiday November 2009
We all just wanted to say we had a great time at “Mickeys Paradise” for our family holiday. The villa was very clean and very well equipped everything we needed for the holiday and for our “Little One” we did not need to bring anything with us! We would most definitely recommend Mickeys Paradise anyone who wants to go to Mickey Mouse Land!
Thanks for all the help and advice, the use of the sat nav was a brilliant idea the family information booklet that you sent us was really helpful we even managed to see the launch of the NASA Atlantis, something that we all wanted to see but never really expected to get the chance of seeing.
Recommendation from Friends
The Williams Famy
Warren & Sophie,
We just wanted to drop you a line to express our appreciation for your help in all the lead up to the holiday and congratulate you on your beautiful villa you have in Orlando.
We had a wonderful holiday and that was in no small way down to the lovely accommodation, our girls made full use of the pool. I will have no hesitation in recommending Mickey's Paradise to friends and family (that's how we heard about it) and who knows we may be booking for 2011!

Mickeys Paradise Guest Review
Kennedy / Smith Family Ireland January 2009
Dear Sophie & Warren
I would like to take this opportunity to tell you how much we enjoyed your lovely villa in Orlando.
We have stayed in a number of villas in Orlando during previous holidays and it was everyone's opinion that your villa was by far the best. The villa was spotless and welcoming on arrival and we were amazed by all the facilities within the villa which catered for all age groups. Your check in phone call and your management team's call to the Villa was a lovely touch to ensure that we were happy with all arrangements and had no problems.
We would have no hesitation in recommending your villa to family and friends. In actual fact on our route home in discussion with other holiday makers they all appeared jealous by the facilities within your Villa compared to their own accommodation. I can understand now why your villa has good occupancy!
Best wishes to you and your family for Christmas and 2009 and hopefully all going well we will be able to return to your villa in the near future.
Bishopp Family - April 2009
Mark & Alison Bishopp
What a lovely villa! We had a fabulous time and the villa was the
Perfect base to return to at the end of each busy day. In particular we were pleased with the quiet cul de sac location of this villa and the pool area being so private compared to the many you see with the pool visible from the road or over looked.
In particular we found your parks “busy times table” very helpful and we planned our holiday time out around that. I’m keeping the booklet for reference the next time we go.

I just wanted to thank you for letting us enjoy your wonderful Florida home for our 3 week holiday. I can speak for us all when I say the villa was in tip top condition very clean and very well equipped everything we needed was right at our finger tips. I would most definitely recommend Mickeys Paradise to friends and family as we thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
Thanks for all the help and advice, your information booklet that you sent us was great, and your advice on discovery cove helped make up my mind, we did manage to get their and it was one of the best days we had.
So until next time from the Coyne and Gallagher family's thanks for everything
Hello Sophie and Warren,
Jennifer Morre and the Eccles Family -May 2008
Just a quick note to say thanks so much for allowing us to rent your villa. The home was so perfect for our two families! You were so helpful throughout the booking/planning process, and that was very much appreciated. The Villa was very clean, well equipped and centrally located.
We can't wait to get back again next spring and will definitely recommend it to friends!

The McLeod Family's visit to Mickey's Paradise June 2008
Mark and Donna McLeod
What a fantastic two weeks. We loved every minute of our stay in this superb villa. Everything in the villa was perfect. Lovely decor, many extra amenities catering for young and old and a very relaxing pool and spa. We really felt welcome and soon felt at home.
The Glenbrook Club house was very near and the staff again made us welcome.
The location couldn't have been better for visiting all of Orlando's many attractions. We will be back and are recommending Mickey's Paradise to all our family & friends
The McLeod Family - June 2008
WOW What a Villa
THE HUGHES & LATHAM FAMILY- April 2008
What can we say? WOW!!!!! When a group of 10 of us arrived in Orlando for the very first time we had high expectations. Situated in the perfect spot Mickeys paradise quite simply exceeded all of our expectations. The villa and pool area was spotless and had all the equipment that we could possibly need to make our stay a comfortable and enjoyable one. With ages ranging from 10 to 47 there was something for everyone, from the games room and consoles to the swimming pool and jacuzzi. We will be returning to Orlando in the future and have already booked Mickeys paradise, we wouldn't dream of going any where else.
Where is Mickeys Paradise ?
The Glenbrook Resort is in the USA's most Vibrant Tourist Area, It is located close to Disney on the Highway 27, just North of the 192 / H27 Junction
The first thing that you notice about Orlando from the time you step off the plane is that it is a friendly and happy place to spend you holiday, it’s a real tourist wonderland.
Disney World is the leading attraction in town, but don’t forget Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure, SeaWorld and Discovery Cove where you can swim with the Dolphins. With lots of other attractions both day and night to keep you and the young ones occupied there is something to suit all tastes and ages. You’ll walk a lot, queue a lot and probably eat a lot but you’ll have a fabulous time and you may end up exhausted as well! At the end of a long day you will still have Mickeys Paradise to come home to where you can relax in the private pool or ease those aches away with the jetted spa. You could even just spend the whole day by the pool relaxing and soaking up the Florida Sunshine.
Add on a day at one of the water parks, a trip to see some of the wildlife or other more ‘natural’ like a day at the beach looking for Turtles and Shells or you could pay a vist St Augustine the oldest town in Florida. With the lure of nearby Kennedy Space Centre, and you’re talking at least 12 days of pure fun, and if time allows you can even take a trip to 'Africa!' - Bush Gardens in Tampa Bay.
Don’t forget you will also need time to visit the Shopping Malls where you can pick up lots of designer bargains, you can shop and dine till late.
There is so much to see and do in Orlando you’ll need to keep your energy up. What better way to refuel than enjoy eating out in many unique restaurants/dining options that will make eating out an unforgettable experience.
In Florida children are welcomed everywhere. All the restaurants are affordable which makes a big difference when dining with children. You must try the 'all you can eat' buffet breakfasts, lunches and dinner. The wide variety of Diner Shows are fantastic value.
Clermont town is around 8 miles away but you must try a night out on International Drive with all the Entertainment, Restaurants and Crazy Golf, this is a very popular destination. Then mix in the night time attractions of Downtown Disney, Universal’s City Walks and a host of dinner shows, and you get an idea of the awesome scale of the entertainment on offer. Even with two weeks, you will want to come back to see more.
Do we need a Visa for the USA ?
Here is an extract from the Sunday Times "See America" Supplement
March 21st 2004:
"most UK citizens can still travel to America on the visa-waiver programme. However, travellers issued with a passport on or after October 1st that lacks a digital photograph or fingerprint will need a visa (£67). So, if your passport runs out on October 1st, consider renewing it in advance as UK passport Authorities do not currently issue a digital passport that will satisfy US requirements. From October 26th, all visitors will also need a machine readable passport."
( Bar code at the Bottom
Is a Villa better than a Hotel ?
The Price you see for the villa is for 1 week for the whole villa, not per person. You would have to rent several rooms at the local hotel for the same amount of beds plus with Mickeys Paradise you get the Luxury of a private swimming pool and Jetted Spa, Along with numerous other extras not available in hotels.
How far is Mickeys Paradise from the Attractions

Universal is 20 Miles or About 25 - 30 Minutes
