This home was absolutely gorgeous!!!! My family and I were well accomadated. The kids enjoyed theirselves completely. The home was clean and No foul oders. The upstairs loft was an excellent addition. The down stairs area was incrediable and comfortable. We had one problem where the air conditioner didnt work, but the maintence crew was outstanding and was there first thing in the morning and the air was working within minutes!!!! I will definately want to revisit this home for my future vacationing needs!!!! .
I'm not good at staying in places I don't know, but here is a place I will re-visit as often as I can!
It was like staying in a 5* hotel only better, because you could feel totally relaxed - it was a real "home from home." It is clean, comfortable, spacious, luxurious and has plenty to keep you occupied or to help you relax. It's even better than the photos show!
We were so near to the parks, shops, eating places and could enjoy walking in the conservation area at the back of the villa. I loved watching the birds soaring above the trees from the windows whilst eating breakfast - vultures, eagles and sand crane. Red Cardinal birds also visited the tree just the other side of the pool area!
If you're going to Orlando then you have to stay here!!
We recently returned from a ten day stay at this beautiful house. This was my 4th Florida home rental (including a stay at a house right across the street at Highgate Park). This was also the best of the homes I've stayed at. There were 9 people in our group, 6 adults and 3 kids 10 and under.
Walking into the house felt great. Nice furnishings and great, simple decorations. The floor plan of the house is such you never feel crowded, a really great design. It felt like you could have had 15+ people and not felt crowded!
The game rooms were great. The pool was fantastic and well heated. The furniture was better quality then you often see in rental properties. All the beds were comfortable.
The location of the property is also very good. Close enough to all the Disney attractions yet removed just enough to feel like "home". Many stores and restaurants are within a mile or two away (as well as a Publix supermarket and CVS right around the corner). I loved the pizza from Mia Pizza (although a little pricey)!
The owners Malcolm and Ann were very quick in response to my inquiry and sent a follow-up email prior to us arriving just to check-in, a nice touch. The management company they use was extremely responsive and timely to all my emails and questions. The house was very clean, truly spotless when we arrived.
If you're considering a Florida rental of this type. Don't hesitate to stay here. It was a great place. Thanks for having us!
This home was AWESOME! It was well furnished, spacious and had all the accessories we needed (towels, dishes, games, internet, washer/dyer etc). It was extremely clean and neat. The age range in our party of ten was 18-43 and there was something for everyone. The enclosed pool/jacuzzi, the upstairs and downstairs gamerooms, the board games and the movies kept everyone happy. There was plenty of space in the living room to accommodate all of us in the evenings. The home is located close enough to all of the attractions to be easily accessible, but far enough away so that you are not caught up in all of the hustle and bustle - which made for a very relaxing, layed-back vacation. The neighborhood was very quiet. Actually, on some days, we had to drag ourselves away. If you are looking for a home away from home that is all that the owners say it is and more - I highly recommend this home.
My family and I have stayed in various homes over the last 6 years and this one is BY FAR the best! The home has everything you need for your Disney or Universal vacation. We enjoyed the game room and the swimming pool was so wonderful. The backyard is next to the nature reserve and is so quiet and relaxing. My husband and I loved the master suite! It was like having our own hotel room! The other bedrooms were also very nicely appointed. I must also mention that the beds are so comfortable! That is a BIG deal with me. I would highly recommend this home for your stay. I can't wait to go back!
My family and I have just returned from a wonderful holiday staying at this villa. If you wanted to stay in a vacation home with the WOW factor, combined with the luxury of a five star hotel then this is the place for you. The Villa was situated in a very peaceful location on a conservation community and yet had the advantage of being located close to restaurants, supermarkets and all facilities including a walk in doctors surgery. It was on a very quiet road with virtually no traffic. The airport and all the major theme parks were all within an easy forty minute drive.
The villa was beautifully done out and had many thoughtful finishing touches. Someone had put a lot of thought into providing a very child friendly environment. The villa was spotlessly clean and immaculately presented, so much so, that we had the impression that we were the first family to ever rent it.
All the bedrooms are very spacious and our party of ten was easily accommodated, although we did have to draw straws as to who got to sleep in the magnificent master suite with the four poster bed. The number of bathrooms in the house made getting out in the mornings considerably easy. The Villa had an amazing amount of open plan living space and is well equipped with everything we could possibly have ever needed during our stay. The kitchen is very well equipped and the barbecue and outside dining facilities allowed us to make the most of the warm evenings. There is a fully equipped laundry which includes a washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board. This means you only need pack the bare minimum and can fill your suitcase with lots of Disney souvenirs.
The private pool backs onto a large conservation area, so the views were simply magnificent and the pool is not overlooked. It is simply a haven for both sun & wildlife lovers. My children had a whale (sorry Bruce, a touch of poetic licence here) of a time splashing about in the pool with the inflatable toys whilst we sat around relaxing at the pool edge, making the most of the warm sunshine.
I never heard the words ?I am bored ?from my children whilst staying here. There were enough books and games to keep children of any age (1-99) occupied. We came as an extended family party with age ranges from 3 to 70. The villa also had a games room equipped with a pool table, table football and table tennis table as well as computer games console in the upstairs games den. Some days the children were reluctant to go out!.
