Family Friendly Holidays in United States - Holiday Lettings
“Excellent Villa” This has been our third time at Tivoli Manor. The villa is in a beautiful location, very clean and has everything that you would need. Easy to get to Disney, Universal and Epcot. We will definitely be back.
“Brilliant Holiday” Visited this villa in May '14 - had a wonderful time - the house was spotless - very clean throughout - the pool was fantastic - wonderful to return to after a hectic day at the theme parks - the villa is also ideally situated for easy access to the theme parks and local shops. Am looking forward to returning again in the near future.
“Now have the Florida bug” From beginning to end this holiday has been fantastic. This is the nicest villa we have rented and from the best most helpful couple. Gary and Lorraine have been excellent in everything they have done for us and nothing has been a problem. The villa is superb clean and well equipped, just need a few more teaspoons Gary!, we would defiantly recommend and would love to return in the not so distant future. You will need a car and we used google maps to get about. Better than sat nav as it updated all the time and we avoided many traffic jams. Disney is the nearest park. Super markets especially Walmart are near and loads of eateries. Anything from dunkin doughnuts to Indian take away. We shopped in the malls screamed at the parks got wet a lot rainy season but warm rain and really needed when it's 85 degrees. Many thanks again for all the help Gary and Lorraine.
“Excellent villa with all you need for a great holiday” This Vila has all that you need for an excellent holiday . The security at the gate are friendly and very helpful .the area is kept to wonderful standard and you are within 20 mins of Disney and universal
Great place !!!!!!!!
“Fantastic condo, great location for Disney World, at an affordable price” The 3 bedroom spacious condo was a great base for our full on 2 week holiday. The location near to Disney main gate suited us fine as we visited these parks the most. For those spending more time at Universal you may want to stay a little closer.
The club house and shared pool was also very good for families, we only wish we had more time to take advantage of these facilities.
“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.
“Fantastic villa” We stayed in this villa for two weeks and it was perfect and a fantastic alternative to just booking a room in a hotel. After a busy day at the parks, coming back to the villa, which is modern and well furnished was great.
It is a twenty minute drive from Disney and about forty minutes to Seaworld and Universal.
Restaurants are just a short drive away. We liked Red Lobster and Outback the best.
Our son thought the pool was great and we all enjoyed the jacuzzi.
We would love to return and would recommend to anyone. The location is really peaceful and in a lovely area.
“Could not have been better” We stayed for 2 weeks with our 2 children and the in-laws. It was utterly splendid. I owned a villa for 4 years just down the road from here, and have stayed in many others. This was the best by a mile. It even topped mine (I am sorry to say!). Firstly, it was magnificent to be in, with a lovely galleried landing that made sitting in the lounge a pleasure. There was a nice view to the rear, and it was very private we found. Secondly it was well equipped from a self catering point of view. Thirdly it was very clean. And finally the location was perfect for all Disney access etc. The owner was swift to respond to all of my emails, and very helpful generally. We had one small issue with the TV which was dealt with the same day. She was also totally understanding with regard to us staying a bit later on the last day due a last minute flight change. I could not recommend this villa highly enough.
“Fantastic spacious accommodation in superb location” Stayed at this villa early July 2014, two families totalling eight.
The villa is superb, spotlessly clean with every comfort you could want in a holiday home. Five good sized bedrooms with two huge master suites.
large spacious open plan living area with kitchen is great for kicking back when you get back from a hectic day out
The pool is a real treat, again a big spacious area with sun loungers and chairs, we didn't go for the heated open and there was no need as it was very comfortable this time of year (and quite refreshing for those tired feet), the kids and all adults loved the outside area and often struggled to get the kids out for bed.
Its location is superb on a very well maintained estate which is quiet but at the same time close to the highways to get you in to the parks, Disney and most of the attractions can be reached within 30 mins. (toll road cuts the time down by about ten mins and a bargain for a $1.25)
Many good restaurants very close, most of which are recommended in the guest book at the villa.
Cant emphasise how pleased we were with this accommodation and are already planning another vacation here in 2015.
Also worth adding is the way its managed by Tim and his agency out there, nothing is too much trouble and the communication is excellent.
Free super fast wifi is also included
“fab stay, excellent time wow factor” 5 stars
GREAT LOCATION, LUXURY VILLA AND SUNSHINE MADE FOR A SUPER HOLIDAY!
The villa is in a great location just off I4 and in easy reach of all the attractions. It was simple to find from the directions provided and the owner was really easy to deal with. The villa has everything that you could wish for and is spotlessly clean. The pool deck is really special for topping up your tan and viewing those spectacular sunsets. We're already planning our next years holiday there.
“Clean, spacious, homey” Our stay was absolutely wonderful! Very comfortable bedrooms, living spaces and dock area. The view is breathtaking and the property is very clean and homey.
Steve was a wonderful help during our stay and made it to where we just walked in and walked out without a ton of instructions and to-do lists.
ESPN wasn’t a part of his cable package and when we called and asked about it (because of course boys need to watch bowl games) and Steve called the provider at 6:30 and had ESPN added and started to play 20 minutes before kickoff.
He was wonderful and our stay was perfect and relaxing. Highly recommend this location. Just fill up on gas, ice and food on your way in!
If you have a boat you will love this property twice as much!
“Great villa holiday” Had a lovely stay at a great villa in Orlando. A few minor repairs required on villa but overall very happy with stay. Location was close to all Disney attractions and local amenities.
“Great villa, great location!” My husband and I stayed at Sunny Golf Villa in February with our 5 year old son.
The villa itself was spotlessly clean and in a great location on a gated complex. We felt very secure and found it was very relaxing after the hustle and bustle of the theme parks. There are lovely views over the golf course from the garden, which has great child friendly pool.
It was very handy for all theme parks and the local amenities were great, with a walmart close by as well as restaurants and fast food outlets - can highly recommend Manny's Chop House nearby!
The facilities at the property were great, everything you could possible need and also wi fi and a sat nav available to get us around.
Overall - great villa, great location and a great first trip to Florida!
“A fantastic villa but let down slightly by the resort” The booking process was very efficient and once confirmed the owners provided lots of useful information about the property and the resort. The directions provided were also good enough to get us there in the middle of the night and saved us hiring a SatNav with the car.
The villa itself is pristine. My wife and I have very high standards of cleanliness, especially with two young children, and we were completely comfortable here. Upon our arrival after midnight we tucked into the complimentary tea provided. This was disgusting but then this turned out to be a good thing otherwise we would have no reason at all to look forward to going home. The property is very spacious and the quality of the furnishings is spot on. The property was air conditioned to a comfortable level. The showers provide very high pressure with enough hot water for a family of four. The property itself is only around 5 mins walk to the pool for convenience.
The residential section of the resort was also clean and well tended to. None of the properties looked tired or in need of attention. The gardens and lawns were also well kept and tidy. The pool area has two main pools, one with a lazy river and slide and there is also a hot-tub. The temperature of the pools was also warmer than we expected which was good for the children. On the downside the surrounding of the pool area was a bit grubby. There were cigarette butts and rubbish in the flower beds which, given the high standards set everywhere else, left us feeling disapointed. The rest of the facilites were also in need of a little attention. The pool table had a broken cue. About a third of the machines in the arcade were out of action. The movie projector lamp needed replacing. The vehicle access gates were also very tempremental and had a habit of closing whilst you were still passing (not an enjoyable experience when you've declined the extra excess insurance on the hire vehicle). Service at the resort was good and courteous, however wait times were sometimes high even when the resort was quiet.
Overall our resort experience did not detract from the fact the villa was fantastic. In fact we felt a bit sorry for the owners as they clearly put alot of time and effort into ensuring guests have a comfortable stay, and if the resort staff did the same this place would be perfect.
In summary we would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone. If you want a villa that is pristine clean and an acceptable distance from the theme parks, then this is it.
Our sincere thanks to the owners for a fabulous holiday.
“Home from Home plus lots lots more!” What can I say - this Villa is an absolutely beautiful property. Perfectly maintained, very clean and with tasteful decor, also very well equipped. All the mod-cons we have come to expect (Burglar Alarm, Electronic front door lock, phone, PC, Wifi, Cable TV in all rooms with a good choice of channels, Washer, Dryer, Dishwasher etc etc) We did quite a lot of cooking in the Villa and found the kitchen had an excellent stock of utensils too! The pool & deck are a good size and get the sun pretty much all day long. The pool backs onto a lake and the views are lovely - brilliant to sit out, relax and watch the sunset (or keep an eye out for the resident Alligator!) Villla is in a very quiet gated community and only a 5 min drive to the 192 in Kissimmee, plus very handy for getting to the Theme Parks. One other bonus - Liz the Manager (who is lovely) lives right next door so is easily contactable should you need her. It was also a very nice to have the little additional touches like hand soap, laundry detergent and additional toilet rolls provided - something which alot of other Villas do not provide!
I wouldnt hesitate to stay here again and would certainly recommend the Villa to anyone. Thankyou to Maureen & Graham for a brilliant stay!
