“Beautiful villa - fantastic location what more could you ask for”
Myself, husband and adult son have just returned from a fantastic holiday of two weeks at this property. On arrival the villa was very welcoming, situated on a quiet road in the beautiful peaceful Lake Wilson Preserve. The villa itself was fully equipped with everything you need to self cater including ample crockery, cutlery, electric kettle, and my favourite a teapot (the latter two items are rarely found in self catering villas - the kettles are usually boiled on a hotplate on the cooker and take an age to boil) The villa is very spacious and airy - very comfortable with the air-con, ceiling fans in rooms is an added bonus. Bedrooms are very large and beds most comfortable. The games room was a big favourite with my husband and son - they enjoyed a game of snooker whilst waiting for their meal and also if we experienced the odd rain shower. If you are not a snooker fan there is a huge DVD collection kindly provided by the owners, something for everyone from comedy to adventure to children's animated feature films - the list is endless, a very welcome addition. A huge screen TV in family room plus a flat screen in all bedrooms means you can each enjoy your favourite programmes, great after a long day at the theme parks. There is a pharmacy and Publix store minutes away from the villa which has every conceivable item you would need to purchase, very, very convenient. As our adult son accompanied us on this visit, the two en-suite master bedrooms was a huge success as he had his own private walk in shower, as we did ourselves, 10 out of 10 for this. The service we received from the management company was super, the on-site manager left us a card with phone numbers (in case we needed to contact him with a problem) and informed us that he would call the following morning to register our stay and complete the form, he arrived the following day at the appointed time and everything was done in ten minutes, very helpful and informative. All in all a great experience thank you to all. My favourite thing has to be the two walk in shower rooms, my least favourite was that the pool net was broken and it was very difficult to skim anything out of the pool without the net coming off the pole and sinking to the bottom of the pool, but this was only an inconvenience nothing more. But hey the pool was fantastic, heaven on hot days, well maintained by the pool team, loved every minute of it.
“Superb stay in a lovely home.”
I stayed in this villa with my wife, two children (12 and 10) and mother in law for three weeks in May and June 2013. Within five minutes of arriving my children had got themselves into the loveley pool and it was aleays a job to get them out agaun. The villa is just a short way away from the airport and we found it easily. All the theme parks are in really easy reach as is the main interstate 4 which connects all the theme parks. The two main bedrooms are loveley and well equipped and both have an ensuite. There are lots of towels provided so there is absolutely no need to bring your own (you can save room in the case for shopping). The beds are comfy and the rooms are roomy as are the two other rooms that my children stayed in, The villa is big with a very well equipped kitchen. As we were there for three weeks we cooked several meals ourselves in the kitchen which was easy as the kitchen is just like using the one at home with enough equipment to cook anything. The lounge has an excellent TV with a DVD player that plays English discs as well. We had a movie night one night and the 50 inch tv is excellent. Excellent washing machine and seperate dryer. Wirelss works brilliantly for bosasting about your trip on facebook. The outdoor space is loveley to relax in/ I really could not fault the villa in any way. The owners are easy to deal with as is the property manager in Orlando who vivits and makes sure everything is OK. The Pool cover has now been replaced (mentioned in someone elses review) . I would be very happy to stay here again and we are already planning our next trip
“Great villa, great location”
We had a great stay thanks. Villa was just as described (actually probably better) and location was perfect (we were at Disney Parks within 15 min). Villa clean and comfortable and had everything we needed to entertain our two kids (aged 6 months and 2 years) - there were so many toys for them and books and films I really didn't need to pack any of our own things. I even managed to persuade my boy to dress up as a princess when we found the fancy dress costumes in the wardrobe - that picture will be saved! The cot you provided was really good - it must have been comfortable as my little one started sleeping right through the night all holiday. The highchair was of great quality also. The pool table came in handy in the evenings. The pool was great and was already heated for us when we arrived - only niggle was the pool cover was deteriorating and dropping bits into the pool each day but I understand this was being replaced within the next week. Really couldn't fault this place and we had a great holiday and am sure when we return to Florida in a few years we will be looking to rent the same place again. Oh one last comment - a clothes line/ hanger would have been really handy as we had to use string to hang up our swimming stuff! Thanks for letting us rent your lovely villa and for your advice and help prior to booking - your directions and info sent were very efficient and accurate and I received the safety deposit back winin a few days of returning. Thanks SuZie
“It was really great”
Gut gelegenes Haus, gut ausgestattet - nahe zu allen Aktivitäten. Sehr netter, schneller Kontakt zum Vermieter. Sauberkeit war in Ordnung, könnte etwas besser sein, aber soweit alles im guten Rahmen. Wir können es wirklich empfehlen
“great great great!!!!!!”
my family enjoyed ourselves and would return again. the house was amazing, very clean, comfortable and very spacious as there was 8 of us and no one felt crowded. The house was in a great location and only 15-20 mnutes away from attraction.
“Such a wonderful place to stay, we didn't want to leave!”
My husband and I took our 8 year old grand daughter on vacation with us this year. We had an amazing stay at this beautiful villa! Jonathan and Caroline were so easy to deal with. We were very comfortable in this neighborhood. It was relaxed and quiet. They provided everything you would need or want. The pool was a HUGE hit with our grand daughter!!! The temperature of the pool was perfect...warm and inviting!! I will definitely recommend this villa. It is convenient to the parks, restaurants, shopping, grocery store and others.
“perfect home for two families with toddlers”
My husband and I recently stayed at this villa with our two daughters and their families. The two master suites provided privacy and the space needed for the two toddlers. The villa had everything we needed including toys, books, DVDs and equipment for the children. The neighborhood was quiet and had easy access to the highway, stores and attractions. The home was a perfect choice for us.
My stay was great, thanks Jonathan and Caroline, to make our stay magical. And of course thanks Terry for everything. The only thing i've to say is that we have some troubles with the alarm that it start sounding like a Beep and after 1 or 2 minutes another and so on. But Terry make everything to solve this. And please, check the Wi-Fi it works really bad!! But nothing terrible, nothing that can make you have a bad stay. So... thanks for everything! Barreiros Family
We have checked the wifi and have found no issues. No other guests have reported any problems with it either before or since.
“Home from home”
Great villa, fab location. from arriving at Orlando airport we had amazing time. 10 mins drive from Disney, supermarkets, McDonalds and pharmacy and takeaways within a few mins drive. Villa fantastically equipped with everything you need. Towels were folded in the shape of swans etc in all four bedrooms, flowers made from toilet paper in the bathrooms, great attention to detail. Terry, from the management company was on hand when needed. Will be recommending to anyone who asks us. Thamks very much
“great location - it really is less than 15 minutes to Disney Parks!”
Great location much better and quicker to Disney parks ( and the others too)than villas situated around Highway 27 - you really can be at Disney in less than 15 minutes and avoid the traffic on the 192! - everything is to hand within a 2 minute drive - supermarket, take- aways , and of course Mcdonalds . Everyone loved the pool and Plasma tv/cable package. Ideal for relaxing after a fun packed but tiring day in the theme parks which are all incredibly easy to get to from this location.
