The Palms is a beautiful villa which was built in 2007 and is located on the peaceful and exclusive gated community of Cypress Pointe which has its own conservation area. Conveniently located just five minutes from the I-4, in the popular Davenport area, it provides easy access to the Orlando theme parks. It has a large living area/family room, four bedrooms (including two master suites), three bathrooms, pool and spa, first floor games room, double garage and drive, and split floor plan design for added privacy.
The spacious living area/family room is open plan with comfortable yet stylish furniture (new sofas/loveseats in 2015), a 42'' flat screen TV with free cable and a DVD player (and a selection of films). We also provide free internet Wi-Fi and local/long distance telephone calls. There is an attractive breakfast nook with dining table and 6 chairs, overlooking the spa, and another dining area that seats four people, so plenty of dining space for adults and children. The well-proportioned kitchen has all you could need with space and equipment to cook a three course meal if you wish! It also has a breakfast bar and stools.
The living area/family room opens out onto the picturesque pool, spa and lanai. The lanai is larger than average and provides welcome shade from the heat of the day, should you wish it - ideal to keep the little ones cool. For added security there is a safety fence provided to ensure children cannot access the pool unsupervised. The pool is west facing, so it captures all the afternoon and evening sun, and it has steps leading down into it with a seating area on the far side. The spa is wonderful for relaxing in after a long day in the theme parks and the pool can be heated for an extra charge during the colder months (recommended October - March).
On the first floor there is a games room with a large sofa, table football and pool table. Unlike many Florida homes, our games room is within the air-conditioned house and not in the garage.
The Master suite has a Super King size bed (6 feet wide) and has French doors which open out onto the lanai and pool area. It has a large ensuite bathroom with twin sinks, a bathtub and a walk in shower. A hairdryer and straighteners are provided for your convenience There is also a walk in closet with a safe, a flat-screen TV and we provide a clock-radio so you don't miss the early starts in the parks.
The second master suite has a Queen size bed (new in 2015), flat screen TV, clock-radio, large closet and ensuite bathroom with bathtub and shower over. A hairdryer is provided.
Bedrooms 3 and 4 have twin beds and flat screen TV's. The third bathroom is conveniently located between them - however it can be locked off to make a third ensuite for bedroom 3 if needed. A hairdryer is provided.
Laundry facilities are located in the garage with washing machine tumble dryer, iron and ironing board.
There are ceiling fans in the living area/family room and all bedrooms which is very welcome in the hotter months. A ceiling fan is also provided in the lanai to create a cooling breeze.
A gas BBQ/grill is provided for guests enjoyment.
We have tried to provide everything needed for a fabulous home from home holiday experience and add things every time we stay there ourselves. Suggestions from guests for things that would make the holiday even better are always welcome.

Orlando is a city but is also the common name for the central region of Florida which contains the fantastic theme parks, and which is about twice the size of Yorkshire.
Along with the theme parks, there are fabulous beaches, parks, amazing shopping and other attractions like Kennedy Space Centre, Gatorland, Waterparks and Legoland. Two weeks is just not enough!!
Situated near Championsgate in Orlando, with all its amenities - golf, shops, gas stations and restaurants, this villa is just off Interstate 4 which will take you to Disney in 10 - 15 minutes. You can have the best of both worlds - all the thrills of the parks, the beauty of the beaches and the relaxation of your own villa to come home to.
Junction 58 for the villa (5 mins from exit)
Junction 62 for Disneyworld and Celebration
Junction 64 for Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios
Junction 65 for Animal Kingdom
Junction 67 for Epcot
Junction 71 for Sea World
Junction 74a for Universall Studios/Islands of Adventure
Most of the junctions are even numbers only, therefore Disney World and Celebration, for example, are two junctions from the villa junction, not 4.
There are numerous golf courses in the area, with Reunion just down the road and Championsgate 5 minutes drive away.
