Further details indoors

The first of the two master bedroom suites is situated directly off the villa's lounge, and is equipped with a king-sized bed (with a medium-firm pillow-top mattress), cable TV, DVD player, radio alarm clock, a large walk-in closet, and a ceiling fan. There is an electronic safe, where you can store your money, valuables and documents securely. This master has a large en-suite bathroom with a garden bath, separate walk-in shower, toilet and twin sinks. An alarmed patio door offers direct access from this bedroom to the pool and spa area.

The second master bedroom suite is located off the entrance foyer at the front of the villa. It is equipped with a queen-sized bed (with a firm mattress), cable TV and DVD player, radio alarm clock, and a ceiling fan. Like the other master suite, it too has its own en-suite bathroom, which includes a garden bath with integral shower, toilet, a single basin sink, and plenty of hanging and storage space.

Bedrooms 3 & 4 are situated off the lounge, and each room features comfortable twin beds, a ceiling fan, a radio alarm clock, wardrobe and storage space. These two bedrooms share a full bathroom, which is located directly between the two rooms, with a bath including shower, toilet and single basin sink. A further two guests can be accommodated in the lounge, where one sofa converts to a queen sleeper.

The lounge, with its high cathedral ceiling, is perfect for relaxing after a long day exploring the parks. For your entertainment there is a large cable TV, CD/DVD player, VCR and stereo radio, plus PS2 and Xbox consoles with a selection of fun games for kids and adults alike!

A washing machine and dryer, iron and ironing board are also provided - you'll find all of these in the separate laundry room, located off the kitchen, and which also provides direct access to the villa's integral 2-car garage.

For the safety of our guests, the villa is equipped with smoke alarms, a fire extinguisher, and emergency lighting.

It is inspected annually, and fully complies with Florida State lodging safety regulations.

Further details outdoors

A patio door provides direct access from the lounge to the deck and pool, and there is a great view through the two rear windows! The rear of the property faces west-south-west, and overlooks a beautiful natural lake, which is home to many birds and other wildlife, and across which you can watch the sunset at the end of the day.

The screened pool area has the sun from before 11am until sunset, so you can enjoy direct sun for most of the day. Pool furniture on the deck includes table, loungers and chairs. Both patio doors leading out to the pool are fitted with safety alarms to prevent children from entering the pool area unnoticed. The spa and pool can be heated if required, and are equipped with an underwater light, providing illumination for your use in the evening. There's even a gas barbecue, perfect for dining al fresco and enjoying the view on a balmy Florida evening. After a tiring day at the theme parks, relax in the spa, dine on the patio, and enjoy the wonderful lake view!

The Central Florida region

With its fun atmosphere, ideal sunny climate and world-famous theme parks, the Orlando area of Florida deserves its status as one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States.

In terms of fun things to do, you'll be spoilt for choice here in Orlando. The villa is perfectly located for all of the famous theme parks including Disney's Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Universal Studios and Sea World. All of these are world-famous attractions and fun for all the family.

Further afield, there are plenty of other attractions if you fancy a day or two away from the parks. If space exploration is your thing. then you simply have to visit the Kennedy Space Centre in Cape Canaveral. For sun, sand and sea, meanwhile, Florida's Atlantic Coast beaches are about 1 hour away to the east, along the Bee Line Expressway. The beaches of the Gulf Coast are a bit further, around 2 hours away in the other direction, west along Interstate 4.

Kissimmee

We just can't say it enough: our villa is the closest you can stay to Disney and the other Orlando theme parks. It's so close, you can pop back home for a siesta or a dip in the pool in the early afternoon, the hottest part of the day, and watch the nightly fireworks show at Epcot from the comfort of your own back yard!

There are also plenty of dining and shopping opportunities close at hand. For stocking up on basic goods and for self--catering, Formosa Gardens Shopping Plaza is only 2 minutes away by car. However, if you don't feel like cooking every night or you want to check out some American specialities, there are lots of great places to eat in the vicinity, including TGI Fridays, Outback, Red Lobster, and Italian, Chinese and Japanese restaurants. We personally recommend "Uno Chicago Grill", which is a bit further away - about 5 miles east along Hwy 192, for great value Italian-American food!

Evening family fun is also close at hand (eg, Downtown Disney, Medieval Times), and the lively night life of downtown Orlando is a short hop along I-4 - or spend the night in, dine by the pool, then relax in the spa, or in front of the TV!
