“Excellent Villa & Facilities” We've visited Florida on numerous occasions & Sunshine Villa is our favourite by far , we've stayed here on a few occasions now & always have an awesome time. If you have teenagers the games room & wifi are an added bonus.other plus is that you're not overlooked so the pool area is very private .We will definitely be back & wouldn't hesitate to recommend to family/friends We love the location of the villa too. We shopped in Berry Town Centre for supplies which is only a short drive away. Good Places to eat here were Applebees & theres a British Chippy which does excellent fisn n chips , well worth a visit .
Another short drive away is Champions Gate which has a lovely wee pizzeria

Thank you for taking the time to post this lovely review.
The south facing pool always brings positive comments and is an added bonus for all guests. It is also very private with additional screening and unusually, not overlooked from the rear.
At Sunshine Villa we receive many, many comments regarding our "great customer service".
We have always believed that we should treat our guests in the manner that we would like to be treated ourselves! It is important to us that everyone has a great holiday.
The latest TV upgrade is less than a year old and receiving positive feedback as it is a new "Smart" TV.
The roadworks improvements recently taking place have been part of a major upgrade of the Highway 27 and are due to be completed in the next few months. It will be a huge benefit to car travel within the area, thus improving our great location even further.
Your point re the visa protection is also valid as we also have heard horror stories concerning failed bookings on other websites on the internet where advanced payments have been made to "phantom" villa owners.
No such trouble on this website as the control mechanisms and checks on people are rigid. We have been on here for about three years now I think.
In essence the way to run a successful villa rental with happy clients is to ensure that it is run professionally.
We consider this website to be a mirror of our own philosophy. That is why we trust it and advertise on it.
Looking forward to you coming to visit with us again in the near future, and once again thank you.

“Fabulous Villa, Fantastic service” My family and i are due to visit Cork Way Villa for the third time in a few weeks time and have also enquired for October 2014.
We love this Villa and everything it has to offer.
Cork Way Villa is located on the prestigious Highlands Reserve golf resort and is within spitting distance of all Orlando has to offer.
The Villa itself is immaculate, spacious and is clearly well looked after.
The owners are a joy to deal with and nothing is too much trouble for them should you have any questions/queries.
They price this villa sensibly and it in my opinion is worth every penny.
I would highly recommend a stay in this accommodation.

You refer to the previous review stating the same problem, in the previous guest / review gave 5*, we had one issue with the sofa and it was professionally cleaned back in early February, there have been many guests stay there since very happy etc. I'm sorry that you did not fully enjoy your stay, however we always pull the sofa's apart to clean etc so would have noticed any smell as strong as you are suggesting. I am sorry the house and the resort did not stand up to your expectations
“Luxurious villa” The villa was lovely, very spacious. Short 15 min drive to Disney and about 25-35 mins to universal depending on traffic. All amenities were there although I didn't get chance to use them all it would be useful for someone who would need to wash clothes etc.
The only down side was there were stains on the carpet left from the previous people that stayed, the resort managers offered to clean during our stay but I suggested to wait until we left so that was ok. Also we paid on the second week for pool heating but it didn't seem to get heated and the spa pool did not work,my money was returned as I asked.
The owner was excellent with communication, the pool was fun still, the location was lovely.

“"Just the best"” Now that we have returned to the UK after four fabulous weeks at your villa, we thought it appropriate to leave some feedback.
We have visited Florida, mainly the Gulf Coast, for many years and comparing this to all the others we have stayed in, this must rank about the best. We found this villa to be extremely large, very spacious and well laid out and, of course, spotless.
Everything was supplied, so much so the we kept on finding other utensils and gadgets in every cupboard! There was nothing left wanting.
The pool area was a dream, eating by the pool most days. Talking about the pool, the spa was really great - not many villas have these.
Beaches are an easy drive away, but one of our favourites is at Siesta Key - a fair drive, but a must to enjoy the soft granite powder beach which never burns your feet! This is where one can find "The Old Salty Dog" restaurant - another favourite. Talking of restaurants, the "Elephant Bar and Grill" by the Edison Mall is well worth a visit.
Shopping - say no more. Lots to chose from, and with Publix supermarket just down the road, grocery shopping is never a chore.
We flew into Ft. Myers via Charlotte on US Airways from Gatwick. Easily the best and most stress-free way to do the trip.
Many thanks again for allowing us to use your villa and accepting our booking for next year - can't wait!

It is very disapointing to receive this review, (the only negative one we have ever received) knowing what tremendous efforts our managers, my wife, and myself make to ensure the villa is always presented to a very high standard. Unfortunately this guest did have to tolerate the fact that the pool pumping equipment broke down during her stay, and was not able to be repaired for several days. This has never happened previously, but equipment and appliances do fail occasionally. Except for the pool problem non of her other complaints was ever mentioned to me, at any time during or after her visit. The first I knew of them was when I read her review.
I do completely refute many of her complaints and would like to respond as follows.
Porch lighting is not bright enough to read digital lock at night. Guests are advised in advance to have a small flashlight if arriving late at night, and also advised how to proceed if the security gate is closed.
The porch is not grubby and was freshly painted 4 months prior to this visit.
The ductape covers the interior knob of a second unused deadlock on the entrance door to prevent children from accidently setting it.
The pool water condition does degrade if the circulation is not maintained, and I accept that this happened.
I completely refute the comments attributed to me in the telephone call made by this guest to request compensation, they are a grossly distorted version of the conversation.
The pool temperature in September is usually higher than the 84 degrees the pool heater is set to because day time air temperatures are often in the 90's., even the average sea temperature is in the mid 80's, so it is totally untrue to suggest the water was freezing. Guests are advised in advance that the pool and spa pumping equipment is contolled by a timeclock from 8.00am to 6.00pm. The pool can still be used at any time.
There is nothing wrong with the kitchen tap and spray hose, and there was a damaged slat to the patio blind which has now been replaced. I also completely deny that I was rude or impolite to this guest at any time.
The following are facts not mentioned by this guest.
1/ Prior to her visit I researched and gave her information she wanted in connection with a civil ceremony.
2/ She requested and was given a late checkout extended by several hours.
3/ She received a compensation payment for loss of use of the spa, and an offer of a 10% discount on any subsequent booking.
I would like to also point out that her review was not submitted for several weeks after her rental ended on 19th September, and consequently is not in chronological order. The review "Just The Best" was submitted for a visit which commenced later, from 1st to 28th October. This guest was so pleased with the villa, that after one week in residence he emailed me and reserved the villa again for the whole of October in 2013 ! Clearly this guest was more than satisfied, as also are the American couple who have rented the villa for three months in each of the last three years. I am sorry this lady felt compelled to write such exaggerated negative comments, and I can only hope that it is clear from the other reviews that other guests do not take the same view.
“Fantastic” This holiday was excellent the home was absolutely fab, it was differently home from home The villa we stayed in was pristine and had every little thing you could want and more. It was a pleasure to enter into a home that was spotless. I am a very fussy person and inspected every inch of the villa, it was welcoming and felt as though it made special for us, but i no that this must be how it was meant to fell for all that have stayed there. We are looking at returning again and would recommend this villa to anyone

“nature at its best” We had a lovely time in this excellent villa. It was very spacious and had a lovely pool. It had everything you would need, including plug adapter which we found useful. Although the weather wasn't as good as expected it didn't deter us. There were various beaches to choose from, each being beautiful. We only booked for 5 days but in that time saw wild dolphin, turtle, a small alligator and a snake a short drive from the villa. We collected shark teeth from a few of the beaches, not something you see everyday! The villa was a bit further out than we expected but wasn't a problem. The area was very scenic and a lovely area. We visited Venice which had a lovely shopping area. The boys especially enjoyed the pool at the villa. We would thoroughly recommend this villa.

“Fantastic Villa and more ....” Where to begin ??? From the very moment I enquired about the villa, Steve was amazing. Efficient, polite and very very helpful. Sadly not everyone is as good an owner. The Villa is beautiful - well appointed, decorated and lots of home comforts. It's very clean and it's the little touches that make it a five star property. The wifi is very speedy and the games room is well stocked. The lovely thing about this villa is that it will suit families of all ages from small babies to teenagers and adults. There is a lovely pool with nicely appointed rooms - two are ensuite. The management company - if needed are polite, efficient and very helpful. Overall this is a five star accommodation with very genuine owners and a great management company. I can't find fault with any of it. I would highly recommend this villa - but only if you don't book when I want to go :) enjoy!

“Just Perfect” My wife and I are regular visitors to the Orlando area and have stayed in several Rental Villas in the past.
It was our first time at ‘Ventura Villa’ hopefully not our last, we had a really enjoyable stay.
The villa is clean, well furnished and very well presented with everything you need to ‘self cater’ provided.
The outside area was perfect, it's secluded with a lovely large pool you can do lengths in, a great BBQ, a spot to sit and read in the sunshine and a shady spot, very important in the Orlando sunshine.
It is in a really quiet but convenient location, easy drive to all the parks, shops etc.
We would highly recommend for both couples and families, we will definitely be booking again!
“Even better than expected.” We just had 2 weeks at this amazing house with ages ranging from 18 up to 50s. . I can't fault it in anyway. The owner Valerie was so helpful at the time of booking and the people that looked after the house were also very friendly and helpful.
The younger ones in our group loved the games room which had billiards, air hockey and electric darts.
The pool area was great and it was so nice to come home to a relaxing jaccuzi after a tiring day in the parks.
The kitchen and laundry were both very well equipped for 8 people.
The area itself was well kept and peaceful.
I would highly reccomend the home, especially for families and mixed age groups as it caters for all.

No need to pick up keys after a tiring journey as we were giving a code number to open door
