“Fab holiday - fab villa” We had a wonderful holiday here with our children. The villa is lovely, clean, very spacious and comfortable - very comfy beds and sofa, needed after a day in the parks! Great outside pool area, we all loved the pool and you are not overlooked. The villa had all we needed, eg 2 bathrooms, huge fridge, kitchen equipment, hairdriers, free wi-fi etc. It was v handy to have the washer and drier too with my kids! There were also alarms on all doors - esp handy for the ones leading to the pool area.
Its in a lovely quiet location, easy to get to the I-4 and the parks and other nearby shops and retaurants.
Very good value for money, we had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Owner is very helpful too and responded quickly to my emailled questions.
“Great Villa” First of all a big thank you to Coral and Ian. This is a great villa to stay in. The villa is very clean. The master bedroom is very large with a king size bed, on-suite with his and hers sinks, bath and large shower cubicle. The other 2 bedrooms are both roomy. The living areas have a nice ambience and sofas are comfy. The kitchen has just about every implement and cooking vessel you need. The place to go to relax after a hectic day is the lanai and pool area with secluded garden. We will definitely be looking to book this villa in the future.
Liz and Dave the management are a really nice and helpful.
“Spacious Villa, great location and lovely home” We really enjoyed our stay in the Windsor Palms area enjoing the clubhouse amenities (especially the cinema!) and the location just off the main Kissimmee highway was fantastric to journey to Disney and Universal, for our 4th stay in orlando this is the best location for a villa that we have found.
The home was nicely funished, with very comfortable beds and great range of appliances, gadgets and high quality linens and towels. We particularly liked the good sized pool and spa tub and would highly recommend this villa and area!
“absolutely fabulous” this villa was just gorgeous, spacious and ever so clean. it had all the essentials we needed as we had our 2 young children with us so everything was in place for when we arrived, (cot, highchair etc..) even down to suncreams? it was just beautiful and great, the owners could not have been more great also, so so helpful! I recommend to anyone who wants to experience a villa for the first time as we did.. we really did hit the jackpot here!! you will really enjoy yourself here. hopefully back again soon!! :) x
“Excellent villa / Excellent Owner” Stayed at Tivoli Manor for 2 weeks with my family. Nothing was any trouble for the owners or their management company. From start to finish Dennis was on and to answer any questions i may have had with regards to our stay.
The villa itself is clean, tidy and everything we needed for our stay. Plenty of space, well maintaned and an excellent base for our manic Disney adventure. My two children loved the pool.
There are plenty of resaurants near by and a few more if you drive 10 minutes to the 192.
I would highly recommend this villa to anyone wanting to stay on the Disney area.
Also the villa is on a gated community giving you a better sense of safety for your family during their stay
“Fantastic Villa” We have recently returned from a 16 night stay at this amazing villa with my wife, sons and sons girlfriends. There are ample loungers and reclining chairs for everyone and the pool is great. The villa has everything you could need, the location is great for all parks but in a quiet location overlooking a conservation area. Supermarkets and plenty of restaurants within a 5 minute drive and I would highly recommend the English owned Fish and Chip Shop near the Publix supermarket. This is our third stay at Champions Gate and we will definitely look to stay in this villa next time. As well as a call from Arthur the owner shortly after arrival, we also received a couple of calls to make sure we were ok during and after hurricane Matthew (it didn't effect us by the way), which I thought was a nice thought. Anyone looking to rent this villa will have no regrets.
“Great facility, superb location, great service from the management team.” Great facility in a superb location. The local mangement team gave great response to the minor issues we had, all in all an outstanding experience.
The one shortfall in terms of total excellence was the cleanliness of the property, it was only good and liveable but not excellent, and there was some mid-season wear and tear on the property.
However absolutely no hesitation recommending this to our friends and family.
Our many thanks to the Voisey's and Gary and Graham the management team.
“Pleasure in Savannah” Andy & Sue the owner's very helpful and nice people, from first contact they did
everything they could to keep us informed and help with the booking. Home is
lovely, nicely furnished and very welcoming upon arrival. Everything you could
possiblely need is there for your use, you only need to take your tooth brush and cloths.
The Pool and pool area are lovely with comfortable chairs and loungers, and if you
want a day out there is plenty to do along 192East which is just a few mins away by
car. If you dont feel like cooking, there are plenty of great restuarants near by, if you
like Italian we recommend the Olive Garden, and Denny's or the Pancake House for
brekky are all just 10mins max away. You will have a lovely peaceful holiday if your decide to stay here.
“homely villa” villa was in a good location with the neighbourhood residents very friendly and helpful..
the amenities within the villa were used to the full by ourselves.. comprising,heated pool,games room (within the garage), television, laundry and a good stock of books..and of course a fully fitted kitchen for when we ate in ....
we were within easy reach of the theme parks around Disney -International Drive-etc.20/30 mins drive allowing for traffic.
very nice to travel back from a long drive and day at the theme park(s) and throw oneself in the lovely heated pool...
locally and able to walk... a 1 mile stroll to a very comfy restaurant/bar that served a good range of meals and drink at very reasonable prices with the usual very attentive and friendly staff that America is reknown for..
We were a party of 4 adults and would thoroughly recommend this villa and its location to all.....
“Fantastic stay” Lovely villa very clean and well.placed for all parks and restaurants and supermarkets.pool.was great and very private. Owner was very helpful. Will certainly recommend this villa to friends and family.
“Great place to stay!” We went to Disney World this year with my family and my parents. While staying on site has some advantages, I really wanted to be able to relax when we would get back from the park.
Sunset Lodge provided us that place and then some. We had more than enough room for the 6 of us. Plus we were able to eat a nice big breakfast prior to leaving for the park.
The commute to and from the park was minimal. I would say it took us between 15-20 minutes to get to the park's parking lot from Sunset Lodge. Not a bad commute at all. Additionally there is a Publix within 2 miles of the villa, which made grocery runs very convenient.
I would highly recommend.
“FANTASTIC” Found Jan to be very helpful when requested extra information on local gyms and shops etc.
Villa was very well equipped for the needs of a family including everything we needed for a 6 month old baby.
Close to local shops including a large Walmart.
Plenty of different places to eat all within a very small travelling distance.
A very nice quiet neighbourhood.
All in all a wonderful holiday.
“The perfect spot for a family holiday” Our party consisted ot 2 seniors, 2 adults and 2 children and we all had a really wonderful time. The Villa is very well equiped and in a very good location, making shopping, restaurants and parks easy to get to. We did have a problem with the childs cot and it was replaced with a brand new one within an hour of us reporting it. The computer also played up and, unfortunately the guy contracted to fix it was in the UK at the time. Nevertheless within a few days a young lady made a 300 mile round trip to sort it out, and we were up and running again.
Overall. from the time I contacted the owners to book the holiday, until the time we got back was a smooth, efficient and pleasant experience that we would like to repeat some time. The same Villa tomorrow if our Grandson had his way.
“Your questionnaire asked 'what could we do to improve?' We struggled to think of anything...................” I just want to say thanks for making the whole experience so easy, so friendly and so comfortable. Your villa is fantastic in every way. It would be easy to spend the entire holiday in it relaxing in the pool / hot tub, taking advantage of the games room and generally chilling out. But of course that isn't the point of Orlando. It is necessary to take to the roads and fight the infamous Orlando traffic. That's where the location of La Bella Vita comes into its own. Less than 20 mins to all the Disney Parks and even when we ventured slightly further afield to Seaworld / Universal we found that we had easy runs in the opposite direction to the heavy traffic.
We've stayed in Motels, Hotels and Resorts in the past but renting a villa (and particulary La Bella Vita) is by far the best for a family holiday.
Thanks for all your help and assistance.
“2 weeks of sun, excellent villa, great pool overlooking lake.” We booked this villa direct with the owners, the pictures on the website did not do the villa justice, the booking process was very clear and easy
The villa is about 30 minutes from the airport very easy to find, the villa was only used by my self my wife and our 10 month old son, all the rooms were big , clean and furnished lovely, the kitchen was big with loads of useful things, the outdoor area was lovely and the pool was a massive hit, recommend the pool heating.
The view from the pool was lovely overlooking the lake, loads of wildlife, birds, raccoons, and the lakes very own alligator, great to be in the pool watching the alligator in the lake.
Great to have a Hoover and washing machine as it meant we could keep the place looking fresh through our break.
The villa was close to everything, 3 minutes from walmart, and the 192, about 1 hours drive from cocoa beach.
By the second week it really felt like home, we did not want to come home, we will definitely stay there again when in orlando.
The only thing I would suggest is a cleaning pack, like a couple of black Ben bags, maybe a couple of dishcloths, some washing powder, some washing liquid, maybe some spray kitchen cleaner, i would even pay a little extra, i think you only need a little of each while there so buying it all, makes it costly and you would leave the stuff anyway, we left some washing detergent.
But overall fantastic.
“Perfect holiday villa for Disney fans” The villa was an ideal base for our Florida holiday. It is set back from the main roads in a tranquil setting and the villa itself was extremely comfortable and well equipped. Our three children (aged 14 x2 and 21) loved the swimming pool although they did not do so much swimming as my wife and I. The swimming pool was more than big enough to have a proper swim. It was lovely to relax in the cool pool after walking round the various theme parks. We had a bit of rain but this did not spoil the fun as they were in the pool come rain or shine.
It only took around 10 minutes to drive to the main Disney parks. It was close enough to allow us to come home for a rest and then go back in the evening for the light show. It took a little longer (20 mins) to drive to Universal studios and Seaworld/Discovery Cove but still very handy. One day we went to the beach (on the East coast) and it took around an hour and a half but it made a nice change from the parks. The kids loved playing in the waves with their body boards. We did not have time to get to the west coast but will hopefully do that next year.
The villa is very close to the Target supermarket with a WalMart just a bit further down the road. There was more than enough room in the villa to eat a family dinner although we did eat out quite a lot. There are loads of different places to eat nearby from basic Wendy's burger places through to Chinese restaurants. The likes of Appleby's which is a chain like our Harvestor restaurants offered some good deals on evening meals which kept the costs down when eating out.
My wife and I had a lovely big master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and the kids all had nice bedrooms too. There was a large flat screen TV in the lounge and most of the bedrooms also had small flat screen TVs. There was free wifi so we could all use our ipads/laptops. The kitchen and dining area were ideal and ther was even a second quite lounge area where my wife and I liked to relax. I must say it is probably one of the best villa's we have stayed in. The only slight issue was that the kids playroom containing a bar football game and a air hockey/pool table was on the warm side, otherwise we could not find fault with it.
Thrilling theme parks, chilled out beaches and sensational shopping malls are the order of the day in Central Florida. It’s not all roller coasters and clothing stores though; discovering its fascinating Native American heritage and serene lakeside spots make Central Florida a great all-rounder.
To Disney World… And Beyond!
With over 52 million people coming through the gates each year, the Walt Disney World Resort is the most visited attraction on Earth. It’s easy to see why, as the number of rides and attractions is mind-blowing. From Star Wars simulators to Cirque du Soleil performances, this magical kingdom has been enchanting young and old since 1971.
If you’re travelling with toddlers in tow, a visit to DUPLO Valley at LEGOLAND Florida will mean smiles all round. Muggles of all ages will be spellbound by a trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, while movie buffs will be in their element at Universal Studios. If you need a breather from the dizzying excitement of the theme parks, family-friendly beaches include the pretty Clearwater Beach and the quieter New Smyrna Beach.
The Great Outdoors
Central Florida has some beautiful green spaces away from the buzz and excitement of the major tourist attractions. Book a tour at Gypsy Gold to learn about the delightful Gypsy Vanner Horse and get up close to these beautiful creatures. For a little peace and quiet, head to the tranquil Rainbow River and enjoy a picnic while watching manatees, turtles and ducks in the river. And if you’re looking for somewhere to take a romantic stroll, Sholom Park, abundant with plant and birdlife, is perfect.

3 Bedroom Villa in Country Creek, Kissimmee
Perfect Villa in a quiet location.
We had a lovely time staying in this well appointed and clean villa, with a great little pool. It had everything we needed and is located on a quiet estate away from the hustle of the main areas, but only a short drive (20 to 30 minutes) to the theme parks. Plenty of shops, including a big Walmart, and various restaurants nearby too. …

Superb 4 Bedroom Villa, Beautiful Lake View, Kissimmee, Florida
This villa exceeded our expectations - perfect Orlando location for a family holiday
We arrived at the villa tired & weary after a full day travelling and a very long flight - immediately, as we entered our spirits were lifted - the lay out, the decor, the attention to detail all exceeded our expectations - it is the perfect base for a family holiday in Orlando - all the major attractions are easily accessible, in particular, the Disney parks and my wife was delighted to find a Walmart about a 4 minute drive away - most evenings, after a busy day, we would have a swim in the heated pool - the welcome, advice & support from the owner, Rose, was second to none - the concensus was that this was our best family holiday to date and this spacious villa played it's part - when, inevitably the time came we were all very sad to leave - I would enthusiastically recommend this villa to family and friends & all things being equal we look forward to visiting again at some point in the future. …
Wonderful Villa in a fantastic location
We stayed in Tor's Villa for Christmas and the New Year and had a wonderful time, the villa has everything you could possibly need and is finished to a very high standard and with all the furnishings giving it a very homely feel which made our stay even more comfortable it has a beautiful outdoor space with areas to sit, eat and sunbath and the pool is a lot bigger than any previous villas we have stayed in around the Kissimmee area. It is around 15mins drive to all the Disney Parks and the shopping outlets are 5mins car ride away which you can also walk to in around 10mins which we did on a few occasions there is also a 36 hole crazy golf within a 10min walk which we also played. Tor phoned us on arrival to check everything was ok and was extremely helpful with our booking and extra requirements (pool heating, Christmas tree etc.) we will definitely be returning to Tor's villa and I would highly recommend anyone that is contemplating booking to do so as you will not be disappointed!!! …
