The Central Florida region
I have heard it said that there is a magic which casts its spell on you when you visit Florida, drawing you back time and time again, now we want to share this magic with you. Regarded as the land of endless summer, the 'Sunshine State', with its wonderful climate and sunsets, the steamy Everglades, beautiful white sandy beaches with clear blue waters, and of course the thrilling theme parks and fantastic retail shopping , there is something to fulfil the dreams of each and every visitor.
A short journey of 10 – 15 minutes from our home will take you to Orlando’s theme parks including Disney World and Discovery Cove, Universal Studios and the new Harry Potter ride, Sea World, and Wet and Wild. Old Lake Wilson Road is also close by giving you direct access to the ‘192’ and Kissimmee’s intriguing Old Town. Why not try an exciting day at Kennedy Space Centre? Beach lovers are spoilt for choice, and can make the most of the sunshine at Daytona, Cocoa, or Clearwater Beaches to name but a few.
For all those shopaholics amongst you The Florida Mall, The Mall at Millenia, Lake Buena Vista Factory Outlets Stores, Festival Bay Mall, or Orlando Premium Outlets, provide the opportunity for even the most discerning shopper to find something to buy.
If nature inspires you then the vibrant colours, wonderful climate, and hot steamy atmosphere that only Florida can provide, will capture your heart. The unique flora and fauna, and magnificent exotic wildlife will fascinate you and fulfill your senses. There are many breathtaking State Parks to visit, for example, Honeymoon Island, Lake Louisa, or Blue Springs State Park where you can marvel at the Manatees in the spring.
Champions Gate and Robbins Rest is a wonderful area for your Central Florida vacation, relaxed and peaceful but only a short drive from all the excitement Orlando has to offer.
Lake Thomas Villa is conveniently situated within 5 minutes drive of the I-4 Champions Gate Exit 58, which provides speedy access within 10 minutes to Orlando's theme parks, shopping experiences, evening entertainment, and golf courses.
Old Lake Wilson Road is also nearby, providing direct access to the 192, whilst Kennedy Space Centre, Busch Gardens, and the coast are about an hour's drive away.
Supermarkets, cash dispensers, gas stations, fast food outlets, restaurants (providing home delivery), and golf courses, are available at the Champions Gate Complex just 5 minutes drive from the villa.

"Lovely Home - Lovely View - Great Location"
Firstly, Janet is an absolute pleasure to deal with. Always responded promptly with helpful information and tips. The location is perfect for visiting Walt Disney World. The restaurants and shops on Hwy 192 are also a short drive away with a Publix just round the corner. The view out to the natural lake makes this home a bit different from those normally found on larger communities we have visited. The place was spotless when we arrived and everything was in perfect working order. As with many rental homes in the area, the garage has been made out into a games room. This one is one of the best we've seen with a good pool table and table tennis table plus all the accessories. The only minor issue: we would have liked a few more consumables - dishwasher tablets, washing detergent, toilet tissue, etc... An excellent choice and would not hesitate to recommend.
Thank you so much for your kind words, we greatly appreciate you taking the time to write a review of your stay at Lake Thomas Villa. We are so pleased you found the location convenient for Disney, restaurants, and shopping, and that you enjoyed our games room. We totally agree that having Lake Thomas as a backdrop is what makes the villa unique. Thank you for your recommendation, it was an absolute pleasure accommodating you, and we do hope we will have the privilege of welcoming you back again soon.

"Lovely Villa in a beautiful position by the lake"
Very easy to book via email and the owner was very quick to respond to my emails. We choose this villa as it wasn't in a gated tourist enclosure but seemed more natural environment, especially with the view of the lake. We were very pleased with our choice, the villa was nicely situation by the lake and we spent a lot of time watching out for wildlife. The bed in the master bedroom was large and comfortable, the children slept well in the twin front bedroom. The house was nice and clean when we arrived, and although the air con had broken the management company responded the next day and an engineer came daily until the temp inside the house was manageable. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment, and we had everything we needed to cook a nice meal. The pool and pool area was nice and clean, the children enjoyed the pool immensely and it was in the sun all day. Although the villa was next to a main road, it wasn't that busy and we didn't notice the road noise and had no trouble sleeping – it was only when a police chase went by that we heard it. The neighbors were very quiet as well. The villa was ideally situated for Publix, a 5 minute drive up the road, and there is a petrol station nearly opposite. For getting to Disney and the Irlo Bronson Freeway, it was a 10 minute drive up Lake Wilson Road or alternatively you could get on the I4 at Champions Gate– so very quick and convenient for Orlando's attractions. Also, as the villa is situated on the South West side of Orlando, it's also an easy trip to the West Coast to Clearwater Beach, Busch Gardens and Tampa, just over an hours drive. Having visited Orlando several times this villa would be our first choice in future for convenience of location to Disney and also its surroundings.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am so pleased the villa and pool met all your requirements and that you enjoyed the natural environment, lake view, and wildlife. It's good to know you found the location ideal for your trips to Disney, Orlando, and days out to the coast. It would be a pleasure to welcome you back when you next visit Florida, please be sure to get in touch. With best wishes, Janet.

"Great Villia, Great location, Great owner, Great Holiday"
We stayed at the Villa at Robbins Rest Place Lake Thomas for two weeks in April 2014, and had a great time.
First of all booking was effortless and hassle free.The information we were sent prior to departure was extremely useful.
The owner, Janet could not have done more to ensure everything was in order and that we did not have to worry about anything. Great communcatuon and speedy detailed responses. Thank you Janet!
As for the villia it is a great size, 3 good size bedrooms, especially the master bedroom. The ground floor is open style layout and is spacous.
The furniture is impressive and substantial and gives the whole villia a high end feel. Well equipped kitchen and its well worth hiring the gas BBQ.
The swimming pool is not large but is a good size for chilling out and splashing around in after a full on day at the theme parks. Oh the theme parks, most of the Disney Parks are about 10 miles away, Universal is just over 20 miles away. An easy drive from th villia up the I4.
The only slight negative is the closeness of the road which does cause quite a lot of noise. However the quality of the villia, its overall location, pool and extremel helpful and friendly owner means we would recommend staying here, and if or when we go back to sunny Florida we will look to book Villia at Lake Thomas.
Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to write a review. It was a pleasure accommodating you and wonderful to know you had such a great time. We do hope you will return again soon. With best wishes, Janet.

"Lovely Home In A Lovely Area..."
Lake Thomas Villa is well situated in an area we know relatively well with good access to everything. The villa is well equipped with mostly everything you could need for your stay. The outlook from the villa is very pleasant and we enjoyed looking out for, and listening to the wildlife roundabout us. The pool was a blessed relief to dip in and out of in the hot weather and although we found the adjacent road busy, we couldn't say it really bothered us. Janet the owner of the villa was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful.
Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to write a review. It is great to know that you found the villa convenient and well equipped, and that you enjoyed the view and visiting wildlife. It was a pleasure accommodating you and your family, and we do hope you will return again soon. With best wishes, Janet.

Had a great time at this villa over Easter this year, lovely looking out onto the lake. Close to the road but can't say that bothered us, petrol station, supermarket etc only minutes away. Just 15 mins to Disney as well.
My only recommendations are that it would have been nice to have a safe within the property and some of the pool furniture is now a little tired.
Lovely and spacious property and the owners could not have been more helpful, maintenance company responded almost immediatley when we had an issue with pool heating and it was all sorted within minutes.
We would certainly consider returning in the future.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review, I am delighted you enjoyed your stay at Lake Thomas Villa, and found the location convenient.
I appreciate your recommendation, and am pleased to confirm that the addition of a safe for our guests' convenience has been planned for some time, and is due to be installed shortly. Our property manager was glad to help and is always on hand to ensure your vacation is a success.
It was a pleasure accommodating you and your family, and I do hope you will return again soon.
With best wishes,
