What can I say....The villa was fantastic! This has been our 6th trip to the Orlando area over the past 4 years and your villa has been our best find as of yet! We had everything we needed to make our vacation perfect! The villa was clean, spacious and well stocked. The villa is located in a gated community which was very quiet and safe. It is close to grocery stores and other amenities, and it is just a short drive off the highway. The owner, Ann, was a pleasure to deal with and very quick to respond to any issue whatsoever! Thank you Ann!! We will definitely rent from you again and recommend your villa to our friends!

Look No Further ... this is 'simply the best'.

We have been visiting Florida for over 20 years and have stayed in many villas but when we found this gem in 2004 we knew we’d hit the jackpot. We have stayed many times since. This is an amazing villa - it has everything. No photos can do it justice – it’s all you see and MORE ! The villa is bright, spacious and immaculately maintained. It is beautifully furnished and so well equipped – you will want for nothing. We especially love the fabulous pool and jacuzzi with a huge lanai for eating out or soaking up the sun from dawn til dusk. You can relax knowing you’re in a safe and secure gated environment. The location is perfect - only a short drive to shops, restaurants and all the tourist attractions. What makes it special for us is that this is not just a villa – it’s a home. The owners have thought of everything - all the extras and personal touches really set it apart. We would highly recommend this exceptional home - the only negative is having to leave !

Hi Ann
As our holiday draws close to a close we just wanted to thank you for the great time we have enjoyed at your Palms Villa in Grand Reserve. The Villa is truly spectacular, and we have all had a fantastic time, especially my daughter Iona.

I am fortunate that for my job that I get paid to travel the world; and as such I stay in 5 star hotels over 100 nights a year; I can assure you that your villa is superior to most of the 5 star hotels I have ever stayed in, including the Hyatt's and Shangri-La's of this world.

My wife says that you have great taste and attention to detail-decor wise! I'm a man, the fridge keeps the beer cool and the pool is great!

From all the family a BIG THANK YOU to you and John for your kindness and patience with all our questions.

If we choose to come to Disney again, and I hope we will, then we'll be in touch, we certainly won't be staying anywhere else!

Kindest Regards
