“A perfect base for enjoying Orlando” This villa was just perfect.
The location is excellent, in a quiet street, looking out onto grass, trees and local wildlife at the rear (Rabbits, Squirrels and even a family or Crane), but within 40 minutes of the international airport and even handier for Universal, Disney and Sea World.
The accommodation is excellent too, two big en-suite rooms with king size beds; a queen size room with a bathroom so close it might as well have been en-suite, and two twin rooms. The living area is huge (and well furnished), open plan to the kitchen. To be honest we hardly used that because there were so many great places to eat (a particular favourite was Sweet Tomatoes off the 192). The outdoor pool is an excellent size, with a spa bath attached, so you could easily spend plenty of time just relaxing there, or playing pool, air hockey, table football or darts in the games room. My kids loved all of these. They also loved access to free wifi, so they could stay connected :-)
It was a lovely place to arrive at after a long flight, or at the end of a long day, and I never got tired of waking up to warm sunshine and the gently sound of running water from the pool.
Another important thing was the communication with Jan. She was really great at keeping in touch from the first booking all the way through to arriving back. She was always willing to offer help and advice - including a great tip on where to book a hire car - and could not have been nicer. Once at the villa there was a folder of useful information, guide books and also a guest book filled with useful suggestions. Things like that really make a difference.
Also, there is a local management company on hand if anything should go wrong. We actually had a problem with the front door lock part way through the holiday. We called them (outside office hours) to leave a message. They replied within five minutes, and were round to fix the problem within half an hour. They could not have been more lovely or helpful.
All these things added up to a fantastic experience and I can't recommend this villa highly enough. We certainly intend to go back again.
“What a truly superb villa!” We had an amazing time at this villa. The owners are incredibly helpful and arranged for a locksmith to come out to us straight away when I accidentally locked the bedroom closet! The décor and fittings are up to a very high spec and the pool was lovely. The estate that the property is on is very private and quiet and perfectly situated for getting on to the main roads to Disney and Universal, as well as the coast and the Keys. Walmart is at the top of the road which proved invaluable. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone who is looking for a quiet place to relax after a mad day in Orlando! We can't wait to go back!
“What a wonderful vacation!” This was our first time in Florida, and we all had a wonderful stay at this house.
The house is very nice and has a lot of space, and the we all agreed that the beds were very comfortable.
It didn't take us long to get the feeling that this was like a second home, and it always felt nice to get back in the evenings to chill off in the swimming pool and spa after long days in the parks.
The kitchen was very well equipped with all we needed, but we never really took us time to cook anything. With so many nice restaurants only minutes away, we did most of our dining there.
We also spent one of our days at the clubhouse by the swimming pool.
The staff was real nice, and even the teenagers spent a lot of time in pool, enjoying the activities the staff had to offer.
- All the amazing parks only minutes away
- Outlets and Mall at Millennia
- Tampa Ray Bays Vs New York Mets
- Olive Garden
- Red Lobster
- Warm, tropical relaxing evenings by the pool
We were all sad when we had to leave this wonderful place, and we will definitely recommend it to everyone.
“Most Excellent Villa, Top Class, will use again” Thanks very much Mark for allowing us to use your home. We had a fantastic time, and enjoyed every minute. Your home is beautiful and we just didn't want to come back !
We spent a lot of time at the theme parks and there were plenty of local restaurants, although the villa was so beautiful and well equipped we stayed in and cooked quite a few nights. Everyone enjoyed the pool area and the kids loved the games room.
We all thought that orange tree was a fantastic place loverly and quiet. Dana and the boys are already planning next years trip and we've only been back a couple of weeks ! we will not hesitate to come straight to you for our next booking, which is looking like it might be sooner than expected.
Thanks again for letting us stay in your home and helping us have a Wonderful time !!!
“Serene Luxury!” This property has it all! It is beautifully appointed and maintained, located in a secure and attractive, gated community, with easy, quick access to everything that you'd ever want for a great holiday! It is minutes away from local stores, restaurants and the Orlando theme parks, as well as Florida's amazing interstate system, so whatever you want is quickly acquired.
It's obvious that the owners are maintaining this property well - so much of the appointments are new and everything is modern, clean and well cared for.
The home's location is great, too, with the most restful outlook from the pool deck onto natural greenery - and the elegant sandhill cranes (two pairs when I was there) visit almost daily and really add a touch of tropical glamour to the gorgeous scenery.
All in all, it is comfortable, well-appointed, ideally located, a pleasure to stay in - and its name says it all! - "Sanctuary View"! An ideal holiday spot for that perfect escape.
“Great place to stay” Great location really close to Disney parks. Communication with owners was great with lots of information with directions to condo and everything we needed to know while we were staying in the condo. Clean and modern and great amenities would highly recommended and hope to use again.
“A wonderful villa that had everything we wanted” Our family had a super holiday in Florida and the Villa was just perfect. Everything we needed. Kitchen with more than enough with plenty of cutlery and utensils. Plenty of space, great pool area and all I. A quiet location which is not overlooked. The villa has a great feel to it and the owner, Dawn was terrific to deal with and highly recommended. Will have no hesitation renting this again next time we are over.
“Lovely villa with pool in great location for Disney” What was so good about this villa was the attention/reliability of the British owner; it was important to him that we were comfortable and content in Sunset Lodge. The villa had everything we could need for adults and children alike; the bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and charming, especially the master suite and the pool area was glorious as it overlooked a large grassy area with gopher turtles and red-headed cranes. As a location it was ideal for shopping, restaurants and Disney.
“Superb from start to finish - the best holiday rental we have ever had” This was our first trip to Florida to do the theme parks- and looking for accommodation was hard when you did not know the area. We found this gem and from the very first enquiry to our last good-bye after 2 hectic weeks- it was nothing short of fantastic. It was also amazing value compared to our usual rentals in Europe. Yvonne could not have been more helpful - with speedy responses to even the most mundane queries before booking after we paid the deposit and before we travelled! When we arrived (simple directions provided from Orlando airport) the property exceeded all of our expectations - the house is fabulous - immaculate throughout and so well equipped with everything you could need (even coolers and drinks bottles to take with you and ponchos for the Florida rain!!!) The rooms are spacious, the pool and surrounding area fantastic and when you add smart TV, excellent WiFI a table tennis table and typical US laundry facilities in the garage - it had absolutely everything you could want for a family (we were 2 adults and 4 teenagers but we could have fitted another 2 comfortably!) The estate which the house is in is beautiful and so well maintained - and the communal Clubhouse with a 20m pool and small air conditioned gym was an ideal way to exercise in the Florida heat. Less than a mile away from a great supermarket and ideally placed to get to all the parks (and even get home for lunch and a swim out of the heat before returning later) - I cannot find even a minor criticism to offer. Superb!!
“Excellent, brilliant, awesome” Best villa I've stayed in, clean, spacious, home from home, excellently equipped, excellent pool and garden areas, management company also excellent. Can't wait for return visit.
“Beautifully appointed 4 Bdm Villa in great location - Pride of Ownership” Centrally located in a new development in Kissimmee, this Villa truly provides a home away from home experience. The unit is very tastefully decorated, extremely well equipped and is spacious. The pictures are exactly what you will find or better.
Backing onto a forest, there is plenty of wild life (deer) and bird sanctuary. Major shopping is close by including a SAM's club within 1/2 mile.
The owners are exceptionally pleasant and caring to your needs.
If you are looking for a great place to relax, laze by the pool and soak up the sun or if you want a base close to the parks or outlets then Veranda Palms Villa is definitely the place for an Orlando vacation.
Thank you Russell & Ann for a wonderful stay over the past 2 years.
“Excellent spacious and lovely location” We stayed in this villa as part of our fly drive for the last five days. I found the villa through trip adviser and there was never a problem . The owners are UK based and so communication and booking was very easy.
It said in the advert that it is 3 bedroomed but unless I can't count there are 4? It would easily accommodate two families of four as there is plenty of room and all the facilities you could want.
The pool and patio area is great because it overlooks a lake as advertised and its lovely to just sit, relax and watch the wild life.
We have stayed in a few villas before but for us this location is much better than being down the US 27. You are much closer here to many attractions and shopping and its so easy to get to the airport from here.
Would highly recommend this property.
Thanks to the owners!
Welcome to the Sunshine State, where Miami Beach, the mysterious Everglades, Kennedy Space Center and dazzling Disney World await. Wherever you go, it’s sure to be the first of many adventures in Florida.
The Florida Keys are among the most incredible natural attractions in the States. Just south of Miami, over 1700 islands break away from the mainland and stretch 120 miles into the Gulf of Mexico. These are tropical islands, just 90 miles from Cuba at their nearest point. Each key is surrounded by white sand and electric blue sea, and thanks to the Overseas Highway, you can drive to paradise.
The House Of Mouse
Florida is home to the biggest and most popular Disney attraction on the planet: Walt Disney World, also known as the Magic Kingdom. If you’re travelling with children (or still a child at heart yourself), you can’t pass by Orlando without stopping in for your dose of Disney. The park is vast, however, so a quick visit can easily turn into an extended stay! There’s always just one more ride to tempt you.
Villas and apartments in Florida are the best way to get close to the Everglades, Florida’s most exciting national park. Just a short trip from Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, The Everglades are huge tropical wetlands, home to alligators, anacondas, panthers, manatees, flamingos, turtles and more. The best way to (safely) see them in their natural environment is to book an airboat ride into the deep recesses of the swamp where cars can’t travel.

Villa Conch - Luxury Beach T/house w/Elevator (Bermuda Bay Club,Bradenton Beach)
A little piece of Paradise
We have just returned from a very memorable first trip to Anna Maria Island.
We spent a month over the Christmas/New Year period in this stunning part of the US, happily residing in the comfort of Villa Conch.
The house is elegantly appointed with every convenience that anybody could require.
It is built on 3 levels and, despite my husband having mobility problems, this proved a perfect choice of property as there’s a life servicing all the floors
It is just a very short stroll from one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen and we were able to wander to and from the beach several times each day.
There is an endless supply of towels and bed linen provided and the laundry facilities are superb.
The beds are super comfortable and the fans and AC ensure a great nights sleep even in the hottest weather.
We loved to spend time on the south-facing deck/balcony which is perfectly furnished with loungers, table and chairs and is bathed in sunshine from early morning until sundown.
Anna Maria itself is perfectly beautiful, quaint and stylishly old fashioned with no high rise buildings, white talcum powder sand and a really friendly and laid back vibe.
There are some wonderful restaurants nearby ranging from very affordable to very expensive. One of our favourites was Starfish Company, probably the most inexpensive, whilst on the other end of the scale The Beach Bistro was sensational but only affordable for a special occasion.
We loved The Waterfront and also The Beach House.
The free Trolley bus was a real boost, running all day around the entire Island
We found Uber to be really dependable and every time we requested a car it arrived within 6/7 minutes.
Villa Conch is a great house to spend a memorable holiday and, personally, I cannot wait to return.
A big thank you to the Owners who put such a huge amount of work into making this the perfect getaway. …
Spa pool villa with golf course views
Wonderful family Villa
Having stayed on Southern Dunes many times, this villa lived up to big expectations.
The spa pool was a blessing after days in the theme parks.
The kitchen was very well stocked, with plenty of utensils, pans and even Tupperware for picnic lunches. I wouldn`t hesitate to stay here again. …
The Orlando Lodge
Excellent All round experience

Awesome Twosome Rentals 101 Dalmatians
Bahamas Bay is a beautiful resort. There are 2 heated pools, 4 hot tubs, a lakeside beach with fishing pier, and a quiet nature walk. There’s also a restaurant and bar at Tradewinds.
The condo itself is clean and spacious. It is well equipped and kept to a high standard
I would totally recommend it. …
Seasons Villa,5 Bedrooms, Pool with Spa, Gameroom Sleeps 10
The villa is in a lovely complex, ideally situated for a big Walmart. It’s very well equipped and furnished to a high standard. It’s a very relaxing, spacious, comfortable place. The pool and hot tub were great, although being out every day didn’t get much use. There is just so much to do and see in the area. We would definitely recommend this villa, hopefully we’ll return one day. …
LAKESIDE HAVEN, Windward Cay, The "hidden jewel" of Kissimmee
‘Lakeside Haven’ is just that.
The house called Lakeside Haven is perfect for couples or families. The location, a few minutes from the 192, is central to all things Florida. The Parks, the Coasts, the Airports, NASA, Gatorland, Airboat Rides and the pretty towns of Kissimmee and Celebration.
The Lake is beautiful and tranquil and steeped in exotic wildlife. A quiet estate with no obvious noise from neighbours or traffic. The house has everything you could possibly need for your stay.
Beautiful pool and tub. Lovely outside area for eating drinking or sundowners.
All the three bedrooms are tastefully decorated with huge comfy beds and plenty of storage and hanging space.
The bathrooms are modern and light and airy with the kitchen being large and functional leading on to a dining area. The lounge is big with lots of seating in snuggly sofas and easy chairs.
There is also table tennis in the double garage.
We walked to Walmart (Asda) in twenty minutes and to local restaurants and attractions like Medieval Times in just a few minutes.
The house is well appointed clean and with a South facing pool and outside area. Sun all day and sunsets at dusk.
The Owners have thought of every safety aspect. Doors to the pool are alarmed, making the home child safe. Smoke detectors in each room. Plus a front door code locking system. So no lost/forgotten keys.
Plenty of off street parking and a very comprehensive guide to the appliances like washer/dryer and smart TVs. In the kitchen: Ice maker, microwave, coffee maker, kettle, blender. Everything utensil you could possibly need for your vacation.
The Owners and Management Company are always there to help and couldn’t having been more friendly.
Cannot wait to go back. Thank You for being so thoughtful. …
