Florida Stay - First Time Villa
Darren Oconnor
An excellent property with all the amenities you need for a great stay. Pool very relaxing and good size enabling family to relax and unwind after a very hot day!
Games room a bonus for those evenings where you don't want to go out and brings out the competitive side to the family!
Overall well recommended and a great base for a Florida vacation.

Tina O'connor
My family and I spent 3 weeks at this villa. The night we arrived my kids had no light working in their bedroom, so as stated I contacted the management that said they were available 24/7 to be very rudely told it was 11 o'clock at night nothing could be done to the next day which was fine but there was no need to be rude about it.
The following day the management arrived to change the light bulb and when I mentioned to him that the sink drains in the master ensuite were slow to drain he said I should put drain cleaner down which I had to go buy myself.
This put me off contacting management about any further problems we had.
John contacted me in the middle of our stay asking how we were getting on and I listed to him every thing that needed to be improved and the only response I got was that was why he had management so let them know. To me this was his responsibility as he is the one paying them so I never replied back and a few days later I got another email from John asking to let him know when the issues had been fixed.
My issues were as follows:
- so many ants even without food being left out, all over the kitchen and around the broken water/ice dispenser
-dirty bedsheets and pillows [lucky we brought our own}
-no basic cleaning supplies
-pictures of the villa are very outdated
-dirty stained lounge chairs by the pool
-ants and lizards around the pool because there are gaps and tears in the outdoor surrounding screen
-there was a snake in the pool on our first morning which my brother had to retrieve and put outside the villa
-chairs are so wobbly in the dining area that they are moments from breaking
-the outside bins have cracks so every time you put rubbish outside you have to fight the ants and the lizards
-a lot of the blinds are broken and cannot open properly
- the pool was only cleaned the 2nd last day of our 3 week stay
-carpets had stains

I feel like these issues should be made clear to people so they know what to expect instead of pretending its a newly refurbished property which is looked after well as i can assure you it is not.

Apart from these issues we had we did enjoy our stay after buying a lot of cleaning supplies and ant killer.

Had a fantastic stay here for 3 weeks in May 2023. The villa has everything that you need for a great holiday.

It is located close to the supermarkets and there is a good choice of restaurants nearby.

From sunny days spent by the pool, to chilled nights in the games room or watching TV. It has it all.

John was great to deal and was prompt on getting back to you. Hopefully be back 2024 if there is availability.

Florida Palms August 2022
Sharon King
Initially I was worried about this booking due to the negative review below, which now I know is a load of rubbish, please disregard it!
We arrived on 18th August and the villa is as you see in the photos, we had the best time here, the pool is a welcome relief after being on your feet all day at the parks.
We enjoyed sitting out under the lanai having breakfast and also at the end of the night, sitting here enjoying a beer, truly was amazing.
My lads also loved the games room, playing pool while waiting for everyone to get ready.
Walmart is minutes away, we also had a number of takeaway deliveries, maccies, panda express, pizza hut, everything is literally on the doorstep.
It was a 20 minute drive to Disney, 40 to universal.
The community this villa is on is residential too and its a gated community, which we preferred, we would for sure return to this villa in future, we all loved it.

Very poor and disappointing stay
Gavin Douglass
We arrived the 9th December for five weeks and let’s just say the property being shown in the pictures and as advertised may be correct as of time of it being updated years ago but is definitely not true as it is today,
When we arrived we had to report a large stain on the carpet and a missing smoke alarm, also one of bedroom doors was hanging off, these needed reported so that we weren’t accused of these when leaving to then be accused by the owner of messing with the air conditioning panel that no one in our party had touched what so ever as we hadn’t even looked at it by this time but recieved a stroppy email from the owner stating that if we didn’t set this correctly we would be billed for new ones if they broke.
Once unpacked and finally sorted we went out to pool area and were not happy at how dirty the far lounging area was where a old mat was shredding and was filthy also the area around this was very dirty and what john describes as a pool area which has 4 reclining loungers actually only had 4 rusted and rotten broken metal lounging chairs certainly no loungers or any luxury what so ever. These chairs were beyond sitting or using in any instance what so ever.
We reported this matter and the only option we were given by john the owner was 4 cheap small air beds and a pump for our stay that he seemed to think was acceptable when infact it’s a absolute disgrace and even his own management company agreed and said that alternatives could have been sorted but john refused,
We had two people in their 70’s with us and the weather was in the 30’s each day yet he expected people to crawl down on a dirty pool floor to enjoy the sun because it suited him and his pocket.
For the money paid this is not acceptable under any circumstances and wether you haven’t.made it over to the property in a while or not this is what communication between yourself and your management company should consist off but johnis only interested in getting your money then nothing further from that.
His management company were brilliant at all times but himself as a owner is mis selling his property at the standard it is currently at and what is supposed to be included.
The villa may have been luxury at one time but sadly this isn’t the case at present and the way john is a owner I would spend your money elsewhere.

Great Villa with Privacy!
Francesca Sinacori
Open, airy, clean and very well stocked with towels/linens/games/books/kitchen gadgets, pots & pans, casserole dishes, tupperware, silverware, glasses, mugs, appliances, etc. The location looks out on to a pond with a forestal backdrop and is very private. Loved the screened-in pool and hot tub (no bugs or anything floating in the pool!). Lots of chairs, lounges, rafts, etc. It is so relaxing and cozy that we extended our vacation an additional 2 days! Highly recommend :-)

Emily Cook
What a beautiful villa! John (the villa owner) made the whole transaction very simple. He was helpful and informative. We had a wonderful few days over Thanksgiving and would definitely use the villa again! The home was clean and tidy and instructions were clear and precise but not regimental.

Wonderful experience!

Fantastic Home from Home
Sue Leyland
We've been back a week and miss this fabulous villa so much, it truly felt like home for the fortnight! Myself and my grown up family couldn't wait to get back to it in the evenings.

Everything was just as on the photo's,the pool and spa were lovely and get the sunshine all day. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need, lounge and bedrooms so comfy, fantastic games room, lovely and clean. can't fault it at all.

The communication from John has been second to none. Lots of info and instructions received before we arrived and he even took the time to email to check if everything was ok a couple of days after we arrived.

We needed to contact the management company with a very small problem we had and they were great. Really friendly and sorted straight away!

The home is in a lovely gated community, just a few minutes from Publix, Walmart and a selection of restaurants and take aways.

If you are considering booking this villa , get it booked, you will love it! We would love to return one day.

Lovely Villa
Brenda Anderson
Just home from a two week holiday in this lovely villa. We were a party of 8, 6 adults and 2 children. The fencing around the pool was great as we were able to let the children outside without being too worried about their safety! The villa was lovely, comfortable and very clean. It is situated in a delightful gated community within a reasonable distance of Disney attractions but a wee bit further from Universal, however, it is doable from this villa. We had a fantastic holiday here and would like to thank John for renting his property to us. During the booking process and in the lead up to us going on holiday communication between myself and John was very good. I would recommend this villa.

The villa was well presented and clean.
Neil Punt
We stayed at Calabay Parc, Haines City for 2 weeks at Easter. We were made up of two families of four with children. The villa was well presented and clean. The location wast just off the US27 highway in a smart and tidy gated community. This made access to the parks off of the I-4 straightforward. We flew in to Tampa on the West coast - this was a cheaper option and would recommend. The villa met all our family needs for the duration of our stay - including a nice clean outdoor pool area (we optioned for the pool heater!). The sun loungers were replaced whilst we there, although there were only four - another four would be ideal for all guests. Great games room in the garage kept the kids (and dads) occupied. Communication with John the owner was very good and minor issues arising during our stay were managed swiftly by the local managing agent. Regarding any negative feedback; - I would say the kettle is too small (4 mugs max) and you cannot seat a group of 8 in the villa. The dining table and outside space seats 6, whilst the kitchen table seats 4 and the breakfast bar seats 2. The key safe is fiddly. Would certainly recommend this villa and location for a large group and would not hesitate to return should we re visit this part of Florida

Perfect base for Disney
Andrew Lovelock
First time we had ever stayed at a villa and we were not disappointed. Good size, clean, tidy and great pool and hot tub. Situated in a small gated community with lovely neighbours. Villa is in a good location for Disney, 30minutes to most parks. Large Walmart or Publix about five minutes in either direction for food and drink too. We would stay here again.

Amazing Villa
Claire Abernethy
We have just arrived back from a two week stay in this fabulous villa, it was everything we expected and more!

The villa is beautifully furnished to a high standard, very clean and catered for all our family's needs. The pool and spa were fantastic for relaxing and enjoying the Florida sunshine. We spent many enjoyable nights in the Games room as it is fully furnished and air-conditioned and felt like an actual room in the villa and not just a pool table in the garage as many Games rooms in villas are, it was the perfect place to spend quality family time!

The villa is in a perfect location about a 30 minute drive from all Orlando attractions and just minutes away from a variety of shops and restaurants, with a handy Walmart just around the corner.

John was very helpful, quick to respond and he even sent us an email not long after our arrival to check we had settled in and everything in the villa was as it should be.

This villa definitely deserves it's Certificate of Excellence as awarded by TripAdvisor. I would definitely return to this villa and highly recommend it to others.

If you are thinking of booking this villa don't hesitate to book, you wont be disappointed!

Fantastic family holiday
Graham Tarvet
This was our 3rd visit to Florida and we really enjoyed our stay in this villa. Arrival was hassle free after checking in at the gatehouse and picking up vehicle pass. Good communication with John prior to arrival and he promptly sent WiFi code
when we couldn’t locate it.
Villa was spacious with a great pool and jacuzzi which we all enjoyed in the evenings after a day at the parks. Games room was fun too, my granddaughters still keep beating me at air hockey.
Plenty of space and storage in all the bedrooms, although the downstairs master bed is quite high it is very comfortable.
A lovely peaceful gated community only a few minutes away from a big Walmart and various diners. Mannys Chophouse was recommended and didn’t disappoint.
The drive to the parks was relatively quick in the mornings but a bit longer at night with Florida traffic.

Overall, a fantastic stay and would recommend staying here.

Amazing, beautiful, luxurious, spotlessly clean villa! Loads of space and fantastic pool area. Great communication with owner and fantastic instructions for all the appliances in the villa. Ample space and lovely decor. Close to Walmart, restaurants and 30 mins from Disney. We loved it...when can we come back?! Thanks for making our holiday of a lifetime so memorable :o)

Hi John had a great time in your villa the only thing was the kettle was too small only makes 2 cups at a time and the master bed down stairs was a bit on the high side to get into for us older people other then that everything was ok would book again thanks
Kevin and family

Family Holiday of a Lifetime!
Alan James
We recently stayed at the Florida Palms villa and it did not disappoint. Upon arriving at the secure gated community we were immediately in awe of the amazing homes on display. The instructions provided by the owner were comprehensive and easy to follow, resulting in us quickly and easily locating our home for the next 2 weeks. The process of obtaining the keys was easy and hassle free, meaning that we could arrive and get comfortable within 5 mins; something that is essential when you have traveled for 15 hours.

The villa was clean and tidy upon arrival and we were amazed by the size of the home and the amount of space we all had. We were travelling as a family of 7 (6 adults and 1 child) and it was important for us to have a large communal area but also our own little bits of space so that we could get some time to ourselves. The layout of the building was perfect for this and meant that we weren't constantly under each others feet.

The home had free WiFi (great feature to have) and a well stocked variety of entertainment, including a games room which my little boy loved! The Air Conditioning kept the building cool during the hotter days and the kitchen had all of the appliances needed to make for a comfortable stay. It was great to have access to laundry facilities as this meant that we could wash and dry clothes as we went along and didn't have to come home from a 2 week stay with cases full of washing to do when we returned!

The garden area was magnificent, the pool was the perfect temperature and a great size even for 7 guests. The hot tub provided the perfect escape in the evenings and made a pleasant change from watching TV as we would back home! The outdoor toilet and shower were also a great help as it meant that you didnt have to drag yourself through the house to use the facilities. There was also a BBQ Grill available if people wanted to use it (we didn't as we went out for food in the evenings), but it was of a decent size to cater for several people.

Calabay Parc is located in a great area (Haines City) and within minutes there were a variety of shops and restaurants, I highly recommend Sonny's BBQ and Manny's Chophouse as the food at these restaurants was amazing! There is a WallMart Superstore around the corner and this provided all of the everyday essentials you could need to make life in the Villa as comfortable as possible.

Our plan was to visit the parks (Disney and Universal) as much as possible and we hired a 7 seater vehicle for the trip. The villa came with its own driveway so parking was no issue and the villa was situated withing 20-30 mins of the parks, with multiple gas stations along the route. We were also located within reasonable distance to Clearwater Beach (2 hours) and Daytona Beach (2 Hours) and enjoyed time at the beach during our stay.

I highly recommend this villa to any family looking to visit Orlando and we cannot wait to return again in the near future!

Wonderful Holiday
Gary Dixon
An amazing holiday , villa was perfect exactly how we as a family expected set in a great location. The villa was spotless felt very comfortable to spend our holiday and had a home from home feeling just what you need for a relaxing holiday ! Would highly reccomend this villa

Beautifull Family Home
Maria Harrington
We've just got back from a fantastic two weeks for A Christmas Disney.
The villa was perfect the set out is great. The pool was perfect and our four year old granddaughter finally learnt to swim. We've been before but never stayed down Haines City way, we will in future and hopefully stay here again, the journey to and back from Disney is so easy on i4 and the 27.
The games room was great as well. My only complaint would be that the main bedroom bed is very high and difficult to get in but is very comfy when you do.
Would recommend staying here

Villa was lovely, very homely and a lot of time and thought has gone into providing this home from home! Kids especially loved the games room, will definitely recommend this lovely home to friends and family, thanks for allowing us to stay in your home, the Janssens, carnoustie, Scotland

Superb Villa Experience
Orla Darby
We had a wonderful holiday in Florida at your beautiful villa. The villa was exactly as you had advised - furnished to a high standard and very well maintained. Access and check out were very straight forward. And you have been most responsive throughout the whole process - from booking to our stay at your villa - thank you for that as it was much appreciated. Our kids loved the pool and the games room in particular. And the jacuzzi was lovely to relax in the evenings after a day at the theme parks. We visited Universal, Seaworld & Aquatica which are all within a reasonable distance. And Walmart was only a short distance away for all our supplies from food and drinks to pool toys. We are very happy to highly recommend this very lovely villa and host.

Nice place
Laura Crawford
We loved the villa – it was spacious with modern décor and had everything we needed. We loved the location too, a little out of Orlando and close to the ‘real’ Florida but still close enough to get to the parks etc. The service before and during the rental from yourself was easy and excellent. I’d stay again and would recommend you to friends and family

Florida Palm Villa
Valerie Parker
Florida Palm Is a very comfortable, well equipped villa. I had a two week vacation in the Orlando area with my family of 5 adults and 2 children. The pool and spa were ideal for relaxing after hot days in the theme parks. The beds were very comfortable, although the downstairs master bed is rather high off the ground and caused a bit of a laugh with me trying to get on it, although I did eventually manage to perfect my technique of a back flip. All theme parks are easily accessible by car, although the I-4 can be a bit busy so you need to give yourself extra time to get there if you have booked fast passes. The children were happy with the games room and their Micky mouse themed bedroom. We ate mainly outside on the patio as the weather was so lovely. Walmart was only a short drive away and was great for buying our provisions. Across the road from Walmart was Chequers fast food takeout. Which was amazingly cheap and delicious. I would recommend staying in this Villa and would certainly visit again. The only suggestion I have is that the owner needs to increase the number of cutlery (silverware) especially knives as there were only 7 of them, but also mugs, plates etc as we found that we were having to run the dishwasher more often than really necessary, to ensure that we had sufficient for the next meal.

Luxury at it's best
Jo Hart
Our ten days at this beautiful villa fulfilled all our expectations. As a family with a 14 year old boy the games room was his haven, the pool a delight. The house met all our varied needs especially our disabled daughter who was able to negotiate the whole ground floor without any mobility issues. The house is fully equipped with everything you would need for your holiday.
The security on the gate allowed us to completely relax. We loved being out of Orlando and used all the local restaurants that were only a 10 minute drive away.

New Year stay
My husband and I stayed for a week starting New Year's Eve. Booking was quick and easy and John was quick to answer any queries. Property was easy to find and great location near a Walmart so we could pick up supplies on the way. Villa was spacious and well presented with all the facilities needed for self-catering. Instructions for everything is there but also emailed to you before hand. We paid for pool heating which was great after being out for the day and having a swim before dark when it was a little cooler. We hired a car and went to universal studios which wasn't far at all. The only slight issue we had was stained bed sheets but we just put another set on and let John know and left them by door for housekeeper when we left. Games room was great. Visitors book by the telly which had useful information from previous guests and we went to manny's restaurant which was one of the suggestions. Very good value for money and great service but go early otherwise will need to wait for a table! Holiday was great and we loved having the whole place just the 2 of us! Security deposit paid back within a month of returning and no issues. We would definitely recommend!

5* Amazing Villa!
Roseann Jarvis
We highly recommend this villa - from booking to arriving the owners could not have been more helpful. Just days before being due to fly out hurricane Mathew was forecast which affected our flights but was able to get in touch withJohn straightway.
The villa is absolutely gorgeous - just like the photos. Our 3 young kids loved the pool and the games room and we just loved everything about it - huge rooms, everything you need as a home from home - for people with babies this would be fab - they had a high chair, strollers and booster seats - much easier than taking your own.
It was about 25 mins drive from Disney but that wasn't an issue at all. We've stayed in a Disney hotel before and often the free buses could take a similar time.
Theres a wall mart about a mile along the road and lots of lovel eating places (manny's is amazing!!) however we often ate in the villa which the kids loved so they could be in the pool for longer!
Overall I highly recommend this villa - book it - you won't be disappointed!!

Fantastic holiday home
Michele Pollard
Fantastic holiday home, clean spacious and beautifully decorated through out. In a very good location with plenty of shops and restaurants and close to all the parks. Would definitely recommend a visit, can't wait to go back and create more fantastic memories.

5* villa
Miss Karen Eccles
This is the second time we have stayed in this villa and it doesn't disappoint!

It's modern, clean, spacious, tastefully decorated throughout and has everything you will need for your stay.

The south facing pool is not overlooked, perfect for relaxing and topping up your tan!

Calabay Park at Tower Lake is a lovely, quiet community within a few minutes from supermarkets, eating places and of course Manny's Original Chophouse which you must try!!

Have no hesitation in recommending this 5* villa.

Excellent Villa
Terry O'neill
Without a doubt one of, if not, the best villa we have stayed in Florida.
Well equipped with a great pool and jacuzzi and games room. Four well appointed bedrooms with the largest and most comfortable main bed.
Information provided by the owner was very comprehensive and even though we were experienced visitors to Florida it gave valuable and essential information.
The villa is within easy reach of all the main theme parks and outlet/mall shopping and airports (15 mins to Disney) with quick access to the 27 and Interstate 4 main freeways but within a quieter area and a gated community with 24 hour security.
An easy base to go to Tampa, Clearwater and the Gulf cost.
I highly recommend the villa (and have already done so to family and friends) and look forward to staying there again in the future.

Florida Palms Villa
Karen Eccles
We've been going to Florida twice a year for a while now and have become quite picky when renting villas as we spend a lot of time there chilling by the pool! . This villa was lovely, clean, modern and had everything we wanted, 2 master suites, south facing pool, games room etc. Tower Lake is a lovely, quiet gated community with plenty of eating/take away places nearby and only a few minutes from Walmart and Publix.

We will definitely be in touch about booking with you again John!

Beautiful family villa
Louisa Jacobs
Thank you john for lending us your beautiful home for 3 weeks. We had an amazing time and made lots if great memories. The bedrooms, kitchen area, games room, lounge area and pool area are all finished to a high standard. U would seriously recommend to all of my family and friends. It was ideal with Walmart being 5 minutes away, and not far to all the parks. Amazing villa!!!

Christmas 2014 stay
The accommodation is a lovely place, It’s well kept and well equipped. Directions and instructions were all very clear.

We had no issues with the facilities and the pool was great. It is a large property.

Possibly a bit further out than expected but that was a mixed blessing - on one hand it’s a bit of a pain to to drive the extra, but on the other it’s nice to be away from the hubbub.

The owners also provided a Christmas tree and some decorations which went down very well.

Overall, we had a lovely time at this property and would certainly recommend it.

The Winters Family's Very Merry Christmas 2014/15
Joanne Winters
Well what can I say, what a lovely villa. This was our first ever trip to the USA, so staying in this villa made our holiday even more special. It was very spacious, homely, clean and well looked after. The outdoor pool was amazing especially after being in parks. We stayed for a total of 25 nights and being approx. 40 mins from all the parks was rather nice. We also took an airboat ride (Captain Fred's) which is located in Haines City, I highly reccommend this trip....it was great! It costs $40 per adult and $20 per child, worth every penny/dollar. Our eldest daughter (17) and myself swam with a dolphin at Discovery Cove, this is one amazing day we will never ever forget. If you go I highly recommend you hire a private cabana it costs about $212 (including taxes) for the whole day. You must book early in advance , they do go rather quickly. Also check-in early about 8am so that if you do swim with the dolphins you will get a morning swim, then you have the rest of the day to enjoy the Cove at your leisure.

I would definatley recommend this villa to family and friends and we would definitely book this villa again. Thank you very much John and your family for sharing your lovely home with the Winters Family 17th Dec 2014-11.1.2015.

A lovely, clean and well equipped property.
Ian Ellel
Arrived at the property with no problems at all following easy to follow directions provided by the owner John who also contacted us to ensure we had arrived safely and everything was to our satisfaction which it certainly was. The property was plenty big enough for our family of four and we didn't even use 2 of the tastefully decorated and equipped bedrooms. The cable TV, free WIFI and superbly equipped games room provided would keep most entertained and the boredom at bay even during prolonged poor weather conditions. The house was made to feel like a home from home and we felt very comfortable during our stay. There is a free safe provided and the property is plenty secure enough being on a manned gated community. There are plenty of places to eat out nearby and within a couple of minutes drive there are 2 large supermarkets. We would have no hesitation in recommending a stay at this property and would love to return in the future. We stayed in November so the pool was slightly chilly, but during the height of Summer, I wouldn't have thought this to be a problem(Pool heating is available). Please don't be put off by the distance from the parks as the drive is terribly easy and well signposted.

Our wonderful stay at florida Palms
Mike Lepinski
we enjoyed your home very much and would recommend it to anyone seeking a vacation in Florida It was a spotless and well appointed home It has a very quiet atmosphere in a very peaceful neighbourhood we enjoyed our vacation and the good weather while feeling totally relaxed staying at your Vacation home

Andrew Gardner
Florida Palms is a beautiful villa close to everything you will need during your stay i was taken back when first opening the door, its decor and furniture all look brand new and the photos i took will be inspiration for my own home, the villa has a large swimming pool, huge bedrooms and enough space for all the family. i all i really have to say is i will be booking this villa again when i return to florida.


August 2013
David Welch
We were delighted with the villa, furnished to an excellent standard and with all the facilities you could wish for. All communication with owner owner and the management agent has been straight forward and quick.

The boys enjoyed playing in the pool and nothing better than being able to relax at the villa and by the pool after a hectic day at one of the various parks. The villa is located in a secure and well maintained community, very quiet in the evenings and just a short drive from the centre of Orlando where the majority of parks are located. We did all our shopping at Wallmarts being just 2-3 minutes down the road and also enjoyed eating out at Manny's, again, just a couple of minutes down the road. Easy to find location and directions provided were of great help.

On the odd day off from visiting parks we relaxed at the villa and also had the chance to use the games room, both boys really enjoyed the Air Hockey table in particular.

Overall a great family holiday, we were delighted with our choice of villa and would be very happy to recommend to anyone accordingly.

The villa is amazing
Bruce Petrie
Having never done a villa holiday before I feel I have been spoilt as the amenities both locally and in the surround area, coupled with stunning house made this an excellent holiday, the villa is amazing. My family and I found the entire set up perfect. It is ideally located near major shops and is perfect to get to all of the big parks. I cannot stress what an excellent villa this is and would thoroughly recommend it to everyone.

Home to home...
Pav Basra
We stayed here over the Christmas period. It really felt like going from home to home being modern, clean and very nicely decorated! We were even supplied with a Christmas tree and decorations, which was the icing on the cake. It really shows how thoughtful the owners are. I have already recommended this villa to family and friends, and will definitely stay here again.

Stunning Villa
Natasha Kingston
The villa is absolutely beautiful, modern and filled with everything you will ever need for the perfect holiday. We had a wonderful time here and it is in a great location, close enough to all the parks and restaurants but far enough away from the hustle and bustle for a nice relaxing holiday. Thank you for
allowing us to stay in your beautiful villa John. We enjoyed it so much we are returning in April :)

We all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Orlando this summer. It was made all the better by staying in John's beautiful villa. All the facilities on offer in the villa were top class, and of a very high standard. Our daughter loved the Mickey Mouse themed bedroom which was one of the many personal touches that made this accommodation so special. The Games Room was well equipped and provided hours of entertainment after a long hard day at the Parks. The fact that the property is on a gated community made us feel very safe and secure during our holiday. We really enjoyed eating at Manny's Chop House it was excellent value and delicious food with a great atmosphere. We also tried the Shamrock which was nice too.We would certainly recommend this Villa to anyone and would hope to return ourselves in the future.

Have been going to Florida since '87 and stayed in lots of houses/villas whatever you'd like to call them. This was by far the best, a beautifully kept home which was easy to keep clean whilst on holiday so taking the stress away. It has all the facilities you could ask for and more and has been very thoughtfully put together. To add to that we had a small maintenance fault whilst we were there and were reassured by the way in which John took care of this.
I love this house and although it’s a little remote its nice and peaceful to come back to and you can pop to Wal-Mart or the close by mini mall to get whatever you need. Lovely manny's chop house where you can get proper meals not Denny’s like fast food is just 2 mins up the road.
Will definitely be back, thanks for a wonderful stay

Very clean and comfortable villa. It was our third trip to Orlando and this villa was the best out of three. There was everything we needed in the kitchen and more. Beds were very comfortable. My girls loved the games room. Management staff was very friendly and helpful. We
had a pleasant stay. We will definitely recommend this villa to our family friends.

This really is a superb villa in a good central location for both the Orlando area and the Gulf Coast and Busch Gardens. The Villa is a real home from home that is beautifully furnished with great taste but with very practical and comfortable furniture. Kitchen is equipped to the highest standards with everything you will need if you are eating in. Lovely pool and games room were a big hit with our 14 year old son (and us parents) and the full size pool table got a lot of use. UK Soccer live on Fox and ESPN cable TV was another bonus. John is a nice guy to deal with and to rent from. He even arranged for a Christmas Tree and decorations for us, which was a very nice touch. Also provided lots of good information about the local area which would be a big help if you are a first time visitor to Florida. This was our third rental in Florida and I can honestly say that it is the best. It is the first place we have rented that had absolutely everything we wanted in a very good location and I am sure we will be back for another holiday as soon as we can. Thanks again for letting us stay in your home.
