"Fantastic holiday and fantastic villa!"
We have just returned from 2 weeks in Orlando and stayed at Jo and Jim's villa. We had an amazing holiday and we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Jo and Jim's home. The house itself is fantastic. Really spacious - 5 bedrooms - 4 upstairs and one downstairs, beautifully clean and well maintained and with great facilities. Loads of sheets and towels (for the pool and the bathrooms), plenty of kitchen equipment/utensils, 2 spacious living areas, open plan kitchen/diner, and a fantastic pool. It was only a 15 minute drive from the Magic Kingdom and very close to local amenities - there is a Publix supermarket just a couple of minutes drive away and also a Walmart a bit further down the road. There are lots of nice local restaurants and takeaways nearby (try Bob Evans for a huge breakfast that will last you all day!!), and the villa itself is really easy to find from Orlando airport (which is about half an hour away). I can't praise the villa enough - it was perfect and really felt like home for the 2 weeks that we stayed there. In terms of the booking process and dealing with the owners - the owner Jo dealt with our booking and was great at responding really quickly to any queries we had or advice we needed. She was really friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for her. I would recommend this villa to anyone!! I want to go back!!
Thank you so much for your review of hour home......it is always great to hear that guests have had a fantastic holiday and enjoyed their stay. Take care, and we look forward to hearing from you if you decide to go back to visit Mickey in the future :) Thanks again, best regards, Jo & Jim

"Clean, Comfortable and Welcoming"
From the outset the admin regarding this booking was handled by the owners in a prompt, efficient, manner. On our arrival we found a clean home from home, with everything that we required for our stay. Jo, the owner, telephoned us the next day to check that all was satisfactory, which was appreciated. The extra fee for the pool heat was good value for money - it was as advertised - lovely and warm. Located in a quiet area a convenient distance from the theme parks. The internet access and free telephone calls to the U.K. were an added bonus. Jo gave us a late check out which was greatly appreciated as our flight departed at 8.45p.m. All in all, a great holiday base which we wouldn't hesitate to use again.
Thank you so much for leaving your review, we really appreciate your feedback, and it was great to know that the whole family enjoyed the holiday. Hope you've had a lovely Christmas, and we wish you a very happy New Year!
Thanks again, kind regards, Jo & Jim

This has to be one if not the best villa we have ever stayed at in 8 visits to Florida.
The contact and continued support from the owners was first class and very informative.
The villa is very spacious with plenty of living space and the most comfortable massive king size bed in the master bedroom. The games room resurrected my teenage pool table skills and many a laugh was had [and rules disputes of course]. We opted for pool heating as we stayed there in October, this was an additional cost on the rental price but acceptable due to the time of year.
The location was ideal for us, 30 mins to the Disney Parks and local shops are 5 mins away by car including, Publix, Pharmacy fast food takeaways and an Applebeys bar. !0 mins away on the US 27 was the 'Cracker Barrel' traditional food diner, good value for money and generous portions.
I would certainly use this villa again due to its space, facilities and location.
Thank you so much for your comments Neil - we really appreciate your review.
We would look forward to welcoming you back in the future if you would like to return, Keep in touch! Jo & Jim

"Best Accommadation Choice for Us"
If you are looking for a clinical pristine palace then this is not the place for you.
However if you want a large comfortable “HOME” where after hard days at theme parks or shopping malls you are able to put you feet up and relax then this is definitely the place for you.
We were a family of nine, five adults, three teenagers and a three year old and without exception we loved this place..
With its two comfortable lounges accommodating all of us, with the boys watching Sport in one and the girls watching Disney or a Soap in the other (there were times when the boys wondered over into the girls section), these were excellent places to unwind after a busy day.
The bedrooms are large and the beds wonderfully comfortable, all rooms are air conditioned together with ceiling fans, which given the Florida weather was very welcome.
The kitchen was well appointed and our volunteer chef (son in law) made us bacon or sausage sandwiches most mornings, however when we wanted to eat out there were plenty of family restaurants a short drive away, the nearest a mere 5 minutes away.
There is a very well stocked Supermarket (Publix) about half a mile away which has a petrol station attached and a variety of eating places.
The pool although not massive was adequate for us and was a welcome oasis to chill on our days off.
To sum up we all felt the house was well situated on a quiet golf development, and not to sound too twee it gave us a cuddle every time we came in from a hard day.
I couldn't think of a better way of summing up our "HOME" myself. Thank you so much for your comments - we really appreciate your feedback.
We would look forward to welcoming you back in the future if you would like to return, Take Care, Kind regards, Jo & Jim

"Excellent Holiday Home"
This holiday home was excellent and had all the facilities to cater for every age group!
It is a great location and well situated to all parks and attractions. The holiday home comprises of it's own private pool and outside seating area!
Good Internet facilities available and 2 large Lounge areas with widescreen TV's and Stereo!
I have never been to Florida before and on arrival I was presented with an information pack and greeted by the owner who was very informative about the area and the local attractions.
I would certainly recommend this holiday home and found my stay very relaxing and value for money!
I will definitely be back next year!
Thanks for taking the time to submit a review Rich, your comments are really appreciated. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future if you decide to return to Florida, Kind regards Jo & Jim

"Holiday couldn't have been better"
Huge house, was clean and in good condition. The location was ideal for the Orlando Theme Parks, and the pool was ideal for our kids at the end of a hot day. This was the first holiday rental we've made; I was a bit scared before we got there, but everything about our holiday was fabulous and the house was a part of that. In retrospect - stupidly good value for money. All of the admin, and dealing with the owners, was very efficient and painless.
Only downside? There's no easy way to walk to the local shops....which I think is normal for the area.
Thank you so much for leaving feedback about our home. I am so pleased that as your first ever villa rental, it was a positive experience! “Stupidly good value for money” hey – I'll have to reconsider our rates if that's the case – lol...
Take care, and we look forward to hearing from you in the future should you decide to return to Orlando.
