“very enjoyable villa with fantastic access to Disney” we stayed in Villa Londra from the 17th-31st July 2012. After a 9 hr flight it was great that the villa was only 20 minutes from the airport and also only 20 minutes from the Disney parks. The Villa itself was very spacious with all the mod cons. We really enjoyed the pool area as did the kids, and of course the privacy of the villa.
I would recommend any family to stay at this villa, and save yourselves trawling through the hundreds of villas on offer. First class!
“Spacious, well equipped home close to all attractions” For the money, this house provides all you need - space, relaxation and the all important pool.
Though the house might not be the plushest of homes, it is spotlessly clean, well equipped and provides plenty of space for a family to spread out and not feel on top of each other. Little touches like hairdryers, safety deposit box and beach towels make all the difference.
Very convenient for travelling to all attractions with a good supermarket and take out Pizza place close by which is very handy for picking up provisions straight from the airport on route. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this house and would definitely consider staying there again. The owners are friendly, well informed and very accommodating allowing us a late checkout which effectively gave us an extra days holiday.

“Perfect” Great villa, so beautiful, quiet and relaxing. It has everything you could possibly need and is the perfect place to return to when you want time out from the parks.
Lovely clean and warm pool, great deck furniture and we loved the garden solar lights all around the outside of the screened enclosure, fantastic evenings sitting outside with a glass of wine watching the kids play in the pool.
The master suites are very spacious, lots of room to hang your clothes in the walk in closets; and the bathrooms are bright and airy, with good showers.
The games room, PS3 and high speed Wi-Fi were a godsend to entertain our three kids on days away from the parks. My daughter really loved the children’s room with the Minions and Disney pictures on the wall plus there are lots of family board games for all the family to play as well.
Publix supermarket is just a few minutes away and around about, you have a cluster of smaller outlets, a liquor store, CVS Pharmacy, Pizza Hut and Papa Johns Pizza, Dunkin Donuts, Subway, Wells Fargo bank and 7-Eleven Gas station.
This villa is in a nice quiet and peaceful location and it is nice to see CCTV cameras everywhere. The interior was updated, clean, and very large. The kitchen, dining area and family great room are open concept and very roomy. The Kitchen was well equipped and the villa had plenty of towels and spare linens.
All the tourist attractions are easily accessible via the I4, we got to Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 15 Minutes! If you’re looking for something different from Disney and Universal, try Legoland which includes Cypress gardens or maybe Bok gardens where we sat for 30 Minutes just watching the Humming birds by the pond.
All in all, we had a great family holiday and have already arranged with Shirley and Gary to stay at the villa in 2015.

“Christmas 2011 - fantastic” We spent 3 weeks over Christmas and New Year in this home at Cypress Preserve Place. The whole experience was wonderful. Everything was made easy, no problems with transactions, the website description was accurate and the information we received was very helpful. The house is in excellent condition and the pool and jacuzzi were lovely. The house is in an excellent location for travelling around and exploring South West Florida. We have already recommended this house to some friends and would definitely use it again.
“Very disappointed with the spa not working and the pool area”

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.
“Clean, comfortable, great size, location & pool - ideal florida home from home” Florida Manor had everything we needed for an amazing florida holiday! The villa was in a quiet gated community, 15 mins drive from Disney. It was a great size, with 2 ample sized master bedrooms with ensuites & 2 further bedrooms with 2 singles in each. The pool was also a good size. The villa was fully equipped with everything we needed and so comfortable to come back to after busy days at the parks. All in all, we have no complaints and would definitely recommend for anyone visiting Orlando. We'd definitely hope to return.

“Perfect return visit” This is the second time we have stayed at this villa and again we had a great holiday here. We loved the size, facilities and location when we stayed in 2014, but it has improved further since with a more modern kitchen, new furniture & a football table added to the games room.
The location is ideal for Disney & Universal, and the villa itself is equipped with everything you would need in the kitchen & good quality towels & linen. The private pool and jacuzzi area is lovely to unwind after a long day out in the Florida sun. The secure gated community that this is in is very peaceful & well looked after.
Really can't fault this property - hoping to return again in 2018!
“Very clean, well maintained condo with all amenities available to guests.” This is an excellent vacation spot. Close to stores, parks and attractions. The owner was very helpful and quick to reply to any question. We would definitely rent from them again!
“Fabulous villa in a fantastic location for all of the parks” This must have been the 4th or 5th time we have stayed at this villa in as many years. Yvonne the owner is an absolute star to deal with from making the booking as easy as possible to including game packs to entertain the kids on the flight over.
The villa is easy to get to which makes for a relaxing 1st day. The flight and driving on the right hand side of the road are stressful enough so to find a place just a few minutes from the major highway is a blessing.
The villa itself is in a nice gated community just off the I4 in Davenport. It's 15 minutes from Disney and around 30 minutes to Universal and sea world. Its also around 40 minutes to Legoland so nicely situated.
The property itself is very nicely presented with a huge dining area for larger parties and a kitchen/diner for casual meals. The 4 bedrooms are a really nice size. My kids loved the bunk bed this year but in previous years they have slept in the twin room. There is free wifi and the TV has an abundance of cable channels (even showing premiership football). The pool are is very nice. There are plenty of sun loungers and a table, chairs and umbrella for having lunch or dinner in the sunshine. The garage has table tennis and is full of pool toys so the kids and ahem...big kids will have no end of things to float on..
One thing that I have found is a nice touch is that there are a lot of things to make use of in the villa. Cool boxes are great to take to the beach or water park, souvenir cups can be taken to the theme parks for cheap refills and all of these are in the villa for use.
If you have any questions or issues then the management company are only a phone call away. Alan, who looks after the house is a nice British guy who is there for anything.
The community the villa is on also has a clubhouse that can be used free of charge. In there is a small gym that I have seen gain some equipment over the years we have been going so there are a few cardio machines and a multi bench for weights. There is also a large swimming pool that gets the sunshine most of the day. We have only used this pool once and were the only ones there so I don't think it ever gets busy, I certainly haven't seen anyone in it when I have been at the gym.
Location wise the villa is just off the highway 27. There are a few small shops that can be walked to including a small convenience store and a fantastic pizza parlour that we have used many times on the way back from the parks. A few minutes down the 27 is an Indian restaurant and chinese takeaway as well as a pub, applebys and Publix grocery shop. A bit further on maybe 5 minutes is a Walmart and a golf course. In summary, there is pretty much everything you could want within a 10 minute drive!
Overall we love this place and will always be back. Its so clean on arrival, if you have an issue the management company are a phone call away, shops and restaurants are on the doorstep, its easy to get to and its close to the parks.

“A great villa in a superb location” We needed a 4 bed, 3 bathroom villa and Woodview was ideal, which gave the location needed for the Orlando parks for the younger members and a lovely pool and deck for us olduns.
The house was generally well maintained and had good facilities including a garage converted to sports area with pool table and table football.
A big plus over similar villas we looked at was the pool/deck area overlooked a grassed area bordered by trees, which held interesting wild life, tame cranes / squirrel / turkeys etc.
Julie was very helpful in answering my questions and there are more than adequate stores and eateries inthe local area a few minutes drive away, Tusscan Ridge development is well layed out and maintained.
We heartily recommend this property.
“Perfect holiday!” We had a wonderful four weeks in this lovely spacious, bright and clean villa. The minute we walked through the front door we felt completely at home and very comfortable.
The owner Graham Burgess, was very easy to work with when booking the villa and his management team do an excellent job in keeping everything including the pool and patio in pristine condition. When I reported to them that the T.V. in the living room had a fault they replaced it within two hours with a new 40" flat screen.
We loved the location of Cumbrian Lakes, just a short drive from shops, restaurants and theme parks and the fact that it was a secure gated community with it`s own lakes to stroll
around was an added bonus.
Will definitely book this home again.
