We have been to in many different villas over the years (this is my 6th visit and my husbands 9th) and this villa has been one of the best.


• Great location
• Nice homely feel
• Great layout
• Quiet community
• Nice pool

We would recommend ‘The Willows’ to all our friends and definitely will come back.
Thank you

We had a fabulous fortnight at ‘’The Willows’. It is our second time to Florida and our first time at ‘The Willows’. Lovely facilities. The kids love the pool and the games room.

Super location – we felt very safe in the gated community and close to Wal Mart, the 192 and the parks.

We couldn’t have asked for a better base for our holiday. We are sure to be back in a couple of years.

Having visited Orlando on numerous occasions before staying at the Terra Verde resort , we have found a gem in " The Willows " at Cumbrian Lakes. If you have stayed here before you know how good it is , if it's your first visit to " The Willows " you have found a little piece of Florida paradise. Everything you could wish for, and more, can be found here.

We required the services of the management company for a minor problem (accidental locking of internal door ) which was dealt with promptly and courteously. This villa is easily one of the best we have stayed in, both in facilities on offer and location. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed our visit, and our next trip to Florida will without doubt be arranged around the availability of this villa. A 100% thumbs up from us.

Hello Ann & Ian,

We are back in cold South Wales after our fantastic 3 weeks.

Just a quick email to say thankyou very much for your help and advice, and for letting us have the
opportunity to stay in your wonderful villa. The Villa was clean , well equipped and in a fantastic location.
We will recommend it to family and friends.

Emily and Lloyd have asked when we can start saving to go back again !!

Our highlight was Discovery Cove swimming with Dolphins and SeaWorld - the kids loved that park.
Also Kennedy was a really good day.

The heat was 90 -95F everyday so the kids did struggle a little - so the pool was great to cool off.

We did spot Dave the Alligator

Thanks again

Hi Ann
Thank you for the e mail, yes we had a wonderful time thanks.

The location of your property is excellent & it lived up to all of our expectations.

We will advise our circle of friends about your property if thats ok with you, as it is well maintained, very clean & does what it says on the tin!!

Your very kind gesture in allowing us to stay in your home for the last morning was really appreciated, it just finished our holiday off nicely.

Kind regards

Feb 2011
Hi Ann,

Firstly sorry for the delay in response, since we’ve been back life seems busier than ever.

Yes we had a really great time, saving account started yesterday for third visit!

The villa was just what we’d hoped for, I cannot think of anything that came up in the two weeks that we’d wished was there.

You wouldn’t know that it was rented property everything was as new and in excellent condition (hopefully the way we left it).

Thanks for all your help and I hope if we/when we do return we'll be able to to stay once again.

Hi Ann and Ian

The villa was perfect and just what we wanted and needed it was a great distance from all the parks walmart and all the other shops, compared to where we stayed 2 year ago that was along the 192 on the
27 and it was great not having to drive along to 192 every night. i will recomend the villa to anyone who talks about going to florida.
The kids now want a air hockey table in the garage.

Thanks for letting us stay at the villa, sorry i have emailed sooner its so tiring getting back into the swing of things when you get home.

Hi Ian and Ann,

We are now back in the old working routine but not liking it, we would rather be in Florida

It is always nice to return to your villa each year, and it is always a pleasure to see you are forever making small but important changes to the environment both inside and outside the villa.

As to the deposit we are happy for you to hang on to it, as I intimated on an earlier email I am sure it will be 3 weeks next May, we are just trying to get the exact dates sorted out.

I will get back to you soon

Hi Ann,
Thank you we had a wonderful time. the weather was roasting! been cold since we got back. The villa was lovely, would definately recommend it to our friends. The location was just about far enough away from Disney to relax and unwind after a hectic day. the boys really loved the pool and the games room. I think that you thought of everything when it came to comfort and convenience. Thanks for everything,

February 2010
Hi Ann and Ian

Sorry its taken a while to reply....things always a bit hectic when you return from holiday!

We all had the most wonderful holiday and was very sad to come home. I know that the weather was not at its best but it did not spoil our enjoyment, thankfully, as it was not a beach holiday! We were very pleased though to be able to turn on the heating, as in the evening, it was very cold.

The villa was exactly as we were expecting and was very homely and finished to a very high standard and extremely clean. It was comfortable and was within easy distance to the parks. The area was also very nice and peaceful. We were very pleased that we had chosen your villa for our holiday.

We are already thinking that we would like to return to Orlando next year for a holiday.

Thank you for your help prior to our leaving.

Kind regards
Christine Truman.

Yes we’ve just got back and had a great time. The villa was fantastic and the boys loved it. I can’t really fault it to be honest.

Hi Ann and Ian

I see you are also up late. We're still getting over jet lag - it seems to take longer the older we get!

We had a great time in Florida and were totally comfortable and at home in The Willows. It really was a lovely place to stay. You truly have a lovely home.

We must be one of the few who got lost on our way from the airport. I was driving and Den (my husband) was directing - or not. However, we had an early look at Disney World and when we eventually arrived (over an hour later) it was truly wonderful to walk into The Willows.

The location is very convenient and our grandchildren hardly came out of the pool. In fact, my granddaughter actually managed to swim properly for the first time.

The weather was good. We had 24 hours of rain on our first day and then it was very pleasant - average around 74 deg, which we found just right but which the TV referred to as low/cold. It warmed up to high 70's/ 80 when we went to Discovery Cove and also for the last few days. So,no complaints at all.

Thanks for the loan. When we revisit we will be in touch again.

Hi there Ian and Ann,

We arrived home safely and so far the jet lag hasn't got us too badly. We had a lovely time in Florida and have lots of fantastic memories and not to leave out a severe case of the holiday blues. We've all decided that we should indeed move to pastures new.

Your home in Florida is absolutely gorgeous and so comfortable not to mention spotless, which is something i'm fussy about and you guys had thought of everything.

Even the thunder and lightning didn't damage our spirits, it was having the villa to retreat to that saved us from despair and despondency. It was perfect and i so enjoyed pretending that it was mine for 2 weeks and being the American mom, sad i know.

Anyway I hope your both well and we're sorting our finances to see if we can do it again next year (if you'll allow us to stay with you again).

Thanks again for making our disney dream come to life.

Best wishes,

It is very important for the security of the villa that these instructions are followed even if the cleaners or anybody else is waiting to gain access to the villa. All authorised housekeeping and maintenance staff are in possession of keys and appropriate codes for gaining access to the villa. Do not give keys or codes to anybody.

Our villa is situated in a quiet residential area consisting of approximately 50/50 rental homes/US families. It is a condition of the rental that you should be considerate in your behaviour and keep noise levels to a reasonable level so as not to disturb our neighbours.

The pool is cleaned and chemically balanced every week for your safety and comfort; however on rare occasions it may be necessary to apply extra chemicals to the pool to maintain safe and correct chemical levels. Should this occur during your stay it will be necessary for you to be out of the pool for a period of 12-24 hours for safety reasons.

Like you, we have no control over the weather! We are unable to guarantee the water temperature with pool heating as this will depend on the prevailing weather conditions. To maintain the temperature, the pool blanket must be used when pool is not in use (especially at night) or the heater will not function correctly (normally October - March)

The heater is a mechanical device, as with any mechanical device it can be subject to electrical / mechanical failure. If such an occurrence was to happen, every effort will be made to repair the heater. If the guest has paid for pool heat, then we shall refund only the days you are without pool heat. We cannot and will not refund for anything that has not been paid for.

Florida has a tropical climate which includes insects and other pests. The villa is regularly inspected and treated against pests but occasionally some may appear inside the villa. If any pests are discovered the guest should immediately contact the villa management company so that the pests can be professionally dealt with. To prevent pests getting into the villa the guest must keep all doors (including the garage door and patio doors to the pool area) closed at all times.
