Family Friendly Florida Villa
Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Welcome to our beautiful holiday home on the popular Lake Wilson Preserve.
Our villa is just minutes away from all the major theme parks, only an hour’s drive from gorgeous beaches on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, and a stone’s throw from 2 world class golf resorts.
The house has recently been redecorated throughout and benefits from not one but two en-suite master bedrooms and two beautiful Disney-themed twin bedrooms, so it’s perfect for two families holidaying together - no arguing over who gets the best room!
The house is all on one level so it’s ideal if you want to bring the grandparents too! Both master bedrooms and the Great room have patio doors opening out onto our superb extended pool and sun deck. As it’s South West facing, the pool area gets all day sunshine, giving you the choice of enjoying a lazy day chilling out on the loungers or a relaxing dip in the evening to cool off after a day at the parks!
Being parents ourselves, our house is really child-friendly, and we provide a cot, high chair, playpen and pram free of charge and a range of toys to suit all ages (including X-box and Playstation 2) . There is a brand new 51" Plasma HD TV in the Family room, free high speed wireless internet access, a hi-fi with iPod/iPhone docking station and a selection of DVDs. We also offer cable TV in every bedroom – we’ve taken care of everything so you can travel light!

"Beautiful villa - fantastic location what more could you ask for"
Myself, husband and adult son have just returned from a fantastic holiday of two weeks at this property. On arrival the villa was very welcoming, situated on a quiet road in the beautiful peaceful Lake Wilson Preserve. The villa itself was fully equipped with everything you need to self cater including ample crockery, cutlery, electric kettle, and my favourite a teapot (the latter two items are rarely found in self catering villas - the kettles are usually boiled on a hotplate on the cooker and take an age to boil) The villa is very spacious and airy - very comfortable with the air-con, ceiling fans in rooms is an added bonus. Bedrooms are very large and beds most comfortable. The games room was a big favourite with my husband and son - they enjoyed a game of snooker whilst waiting for their meal and also if we experienced the odd rain shower. If you are not a snooker fan there is a huge DVD collection kindly provided by the owners, something for everyone from comedy to adventure to children's animated feature films - the list is endless, a very welcome addition. A huge screen TV in family room plus a flat screen in all bedrooms means you can each enjoy your favourite programmes, great after a long day at the theme parks. There is a pharmacy and Publix store minutes away from the villa which has every conceivable item you would need to purchase, very, very convenient. As our adult son accompanied us on this visit, the two en-suite master bedrooms was a huge success as he had his own private walk in shower, as we did ourselves, 10 out of 10 for this. The service we received from the management company was super, the on-site manager left us a card with phone numbers (in case we needed to contact him with a problem) and informed us that he would call the following morning to register our stay and complete the form, he arrived the following day at the appointed time and everything was done in ten minutes, very helpful and informative. All in all a great experience thank you to all. My favourite thing has to be the two walk in shower rooms, my least favourite was that the pool net was broken and it was very difficult to skim anything out of the pool without the net coming off the pole and sinking to the bottom of the pool, but this was only an inconvenience nothing more. But hey the pool was fantastic, heaven on hot days, well maintained by the pool team, loved every minute of it.

"Superb stay in a lovely home."
I stayed in this villa with my wife, two children (12 and 10) and mother in law for three weeks in May and June 2013. Within five minutes of arriving my children had got themselves into the loveley pool and it was aleays a job to get them out agaun.
The villa is just a short way away from the airport and we found it easily. All the theme parks are in really easy reach as is the main interstate 4 which connects all the theme parks.
The two main bedrooms are loveley and well equipped and both have an ensuite. There are lots of towels provided so there is absolutely no need to bring your own (you can save room in the case for shopping). The beds are comfy and the rooms are roomy as are the two other rooms that my children stayed in, The villa is big with a very well equipped kitchen. As we were there for three weeks we cooked several meals ourselves in the kitchen which was easy as the kitchen is just like using the one at home with enough equipment to cook anything.
The lounge has an excellent TV with a DVD player that plays English discs as well. We had a movie night one night and the 50 inch tv is excellent. Excellent washing machine and seperate dryer. Wirelss works brilliantly for bosasting about your trip on facebook. The outdoor space is loveley to relax in/
I really could not fault the villa in any way.
The owners are easy to deal with as is the property manager in Orlando who vivits and makes sure everything is OK. The Pool cover has now been replaced (mentioned in someone elses review) .
I would be very happy to stay here again and we are already planning our next trip

"Great villa, great location"
We had a great stay thanks. Villa was just as described (actually probably better) and location was perfect (we were at Disney Parks within 15 min). Villa clean and comfortable and had everything we needed to entertain our two kids (aged 6 months and 2 years) - there were so many toys for them and books and films I really didn't need to pack any of our own things. I even managed to persuade my boy to dress up as a princess when we found the fancy dress costumes in the wardrobe - that picture will be saved! The cot you provided was really good - it must have been comfortable as my little one started sleeping right through the night all holiday. The highchair was of great quality also. The pool table came in handy in the evenings. The pool was great and was already heated for us when we arrived - only niggle was the pool cover was deteriorating and dropping bits into the pool each day but I understand this was being replaced within the next week. Really couldn't fault this place and we had a great holiday and am sure when we return to Florida in a few years we will be looking to rent the same place again. Oh one last comment - a clothes line/ hanger would have been really handy as we had to use string to hang up our swimming stuff!
Thanks for letting us rent your lovely villa and for your advice and help prior to booking - your directions and info sent were very efficient and accurate and I received the safety deposit back winin a few days of returning.

"It was really great"
Gut gelegenes Haus, gut ausgestattet - nahe zu allen Aktivitäten. Sehr netter, schneller Kontakt zum Vermieter.
Sauberkeit war in Ordnung, könnte etwas besser sein, aber soweit alles im guten Rahmen.
Wir können es wirklich empfehlen
