Beautiful Villa
Karen Bunn
The villa was very large . Clean and comfortable. The pool is amazing the view is fantastic. Peaceful and so are the neighbours. I would definitely come back to this villa it was worth every penny . The bedrooms and beds are so comfortable. I loved the pool so new and the sun warms it up so quickly. I really didn’t want to leave . Thanks to Sheila for letting me and my family rent her villa . The best view ever is the lake and sunset is amazing. Will definitely tell friends about this lovely villa .

Pretty much perfect!

We stayed at Sheila's beautiful Villa over Christmas 2018 for a little over 2 weeks.
The Villa was perfectly clean and contained absolutely everything we needed including s little laundry powder, bin liners, dish sponge, washing up liquid, tin foil etc... all of the things that are a pain to have to get hold of as soon as you fly in. We did replenish these before we left, but those little touches were invaluable.
We enjoyed the pool and spent many hours in there together as a family. The fireworks at Disney seen from the pool area were spectacular, especially at New Year. Sheila was easy to contact via email and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. The villa is very well located for the Disney Parks and we loved the view from the pool area. We saw 2 gators in the lake and enjoyed the egrets wandering by each day.
Our only suggestion would be that the Master bedroom would benefit from a larger bed as a standard double was just too small for us. This however is personal preference and aside from that the Villa is a little diamond. Thank you so much for sharing you home with us Sheila. Our holiday was truly amazing :)

Lovely Villa
Ray Steptoe
We have just returned from a fantastic 2 weeks staying in this lovely villa, we have vacated in Florida for 30 years now staying in several villas but Sheila's villa far exceeded our expectations, the villa is situated so conveniently for everything including the parks, eating places and shops, the setting is superb, we were able to watch the fireworks every evening across the lake from the rear of the property, we will definitely be returning and thank Sheila for letting us vacate in this lovely villa.

Highly Recommended
Lance Feller
My wife and I and family and friends have been gong to Orlando for the last 20years. We have never found a villa that has offered better accommodation. The location is ideal, the villa is spotless and the outlook over the lake is extraordinarily tranquil.
We will be very happy to return and have no hesitation in recommending this villa.

Gorgeous Villa
Beautiful, spacious villa. Photos are great but don't do it justice. Peaceful area and beautiful lake view. Loved watching the sunrise over the lake and watching the fireworks of an evening listening to all the wildlife. Would love to stay again however for our next break in October 2019 the villa is fully booked.

Perfect Villa
This was our 3rd trip to Florida & this villa was by far our favourite!
Didn’t feel like a “rental” it felt like a home.
Furniture and carpets all luxurious & homely unlike other villas we had stayed in & the lovely comfortable sofa to flake out on after busy days at theme parks was appreciated!
Older kids loved the pool table , air hockey & ping pong table, & little ones loved the Mickey bedroom.
The pool area was just beautiful, looking over the lake with a cuppa watching the sunrise & listening to the wildlife is something I will definitely miss.
We will definitely be return guests!

Fantastic location
Natalie Thompson
Thank you so much for letting us share your beautiful villa. The location is perfect and we just loved all the facilities and used them all. The wildlife was fantastic and spotted may different birds otters etc. loved watching the fireworks from the pool area. Hopefully we can return soon for another visit.

What a place!!
Sullivan family
This was our fourth trip to Florida but our first to Sandhill Crane and we weren't sure what to expect. When we rolled up outside the villa and the stepped inside we were taken aback at the size and beauty of the place. 4 large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, beautiful lounge and dining area as well as kitchen and breakfast table. And to keep the kids amused at night a table tennis table and pool table in the garage. But the real winner for me was the pool and jacuzzi with a wonderful view out across the lake....breathtaking!! Easy to find, no distance from the theme parks and lots of local shops and restaurants. We WILL be going back.....

Fantastic Stay!
Kris, UK, August 2014
This villa and it's location was perfect for our family holiday. The property was clean and tidy upon arrival, it's well equipped and in a lovely condition. Sheila, the owner, provided us with excellent information about the villa and would always keep in touch with us about any relevant information. We were amazed to see all the wildlife from the villa especially the cranes which would visit us every morning, the Alligators in the lake, the eagles, the racoons, hares and armadillos. Also watching the sun rise on the horizon every morning, lots of memories that we will treasure for ever. We would highly recommend this villa and definitely stay there again.

Amazing stay in Sandhill Crane
Niall Gibb, Dundee, Scotland, September 2014
My partner and I had an amazing time staying at this beautiful house. The owner, Sheila, provided us with lots of great information, and was extremely personable. The house was perfectly located 15 minutes from Disney and 30 minutes from Universal. We would not consider staying anywhere else in the area, this really was a fantastic abode which we were extremely fortunate to have been recommended by a friend.

Fantastic Villa in a lovely setting!
Sene Family, Kent, October 2014
I stayed with my family in November and was a little nervous booking direct with the owner but needn't have been. The travelling instructions provided by Sheila were fantastic and the local information was very helpful. I would recommend a visit to Downtown Kissimmee to see the old classic cars the atmosphere is great. The villa itself is in a beautiful position overlooking the lake and being able to watch the wildlife and fireworks at Disney was a lovely part of the holiday. Thank you for letting us stay in your brilliant villa - we hope to return again one day.
