Perfect holiday home away from home!!

What a great surprise for our first visit to Florida!!! We were delighted with this large 5 bedroom home when we stayed in January of this year. The pictures really don't do it justice at all and it's even more spacious than it looks in the photos. We arrived in the evening after a long flight and were so happy to get to the house and discover firstly, how easy it was to locate and secondly, how comfortable it is. The house is really well maintained, has all facilities you could possibly ask for and the pool and jacuzzi area just topped it off perfectly. It really is quite luxurious!!
The property is situated in a development called Champions Gate and there is a Publix, Chillis and Walgreens in the development less than 5 minutes away. Great after a long day if you don't want to travel too far to eat or get supplies! The estate itself is quiet and extremely well maintained and the view from the back of the house is really very picturesque. In less than 15 minutes you can reach International Drive (where there are plenty of shops and restaurants) and it's less than half an hour away from all of the major theme parks and outlets in the area. It's close enough to be convenient and far away enough for peace and quiet too, if that's what you want. We visited Disney, Universal, etc and everything was close and easy to find.
We were two couples in our thirties staying in this house and because there are bedrooms upstairs and downstairs we all had plenty of privacy. The house could easily accommodate a few adults or a family either. We didn't have children with us but with the pool/ jacuzzi at the back and pool table upstairs in the house, I'd imagine children would love it too. Some great restaurants close by are Mannys, Charleys Steakhouse and Seasons 52 (especially). There are a number of outlets and malls in the area too so this is where to stay if shopping is your thing :-) I especially loved the private pool and jacuzzi because it was like paradise really to have that all to ourselves, with such great weather looking out at such a beautiful view.
I really couldn't recommend this property highly enough and we loved it so much that we have already booked our second stay here for later this year :-) This was really a find! Thanks so much to the owner and management company, who are onsite. This really made our first visit to Florida an amazing one!! :-)
