We( 2 families from germany = 4 Parents and 4 Kids, 6 to 15 yrs) stayed at Villa Rosalie for 16 days. Everything is new and clean, the decoration ist lovely and the beds are very comfortable. We all agree it is the best villa we have ever stayed in for the amenities and home comforts, easy access to shops ( grocery right in front of the gate) and places of interest. It is a gated, very clean and safe community. It was a pleasure to go for a walk in the evening. The Villa itself was more than we expected! The minute you get in you'll feel like coming home! The Villa is big enough that even with 8 people you will always find a place of privacy. In the kitchen there is everything you need, but - we were on vacation - so we enjoyed the restaurants in the area and there are loveley places to go for Pizza, Steak, chinese food and, and, and...( we gained some pounds ;-))
Parks and other attractions or outlets are easy to reach and on our way to Orlando we always stopped for breakfast at waffle house or dunkin' donuts for example...mhhh! ( also hard to ignore on the way back to the villa;-)
We had a 70 - 90 min drive to the Atlantic like famous Daytona Beach ( you have to see it) and Cocoa Beach. To the other Oceanside, the Golf of Mexico, it is almost the same distance. We made it twice to Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg and enjoyed it very much.
If you don't like long rides just go for an airboot ride at "Boggy Creek" / Kissimee to see some Alligators or if you like mini golf you'll enjoy "Kongo River" at Kissimee as well. There is always something to do and there are some informations in the villa how to get there. Villa Rosalie in Haines City is the best place to start your daytrips. The only problem we had was to get the kids out of the pool and the house because they felt so comfortable that they never wanted to leave :-).
The poolside is very nice and because of all the plants and trees we felt very
private an comfortable.
The day we left the Villa for going back to germany unfortunately our son forgot his ipad in the house. When we recognized it we were already at the airport in europe. Coming back home that night we already had an Email from Pamela that the ipad was found and a few days later they sent it to us. That was really amazing!!!
Pamela, once again we have to say THANK YOU for letting us enjoy your beautiful house. Thank you for taking care of us and for your reliability.
We hope to come back soon!!!
