About Helen & Gary Barnes

We are based in the UK and have been married since 1982, we have two grown up daughters and are now proud grandparents of both a granddaughter and grandson. Gary is a Engineer and I am a homemaker.

Helen & Gary Barnes purchased this villa in 2012

Why Helen & Gary Barnes chose Waterstone

We wanted a property that ticked all our boxes, on a good community, not overlooked, light and airy, large pool with spa that is not too far from the parks but also near to supermarkets and other amenities. A property that would be a good holiday home for both ourselves and our guests.

What makes this villa unique

Whilst most people would have been happy with the villa as it was we drew up and have been carrying out a scheme of upgrades, starting with replacing the linens and cook/dinner ware, we then replaced the bedroom furniture in the master bedrooms, replacing and increasing the amount of patio furniture, replacing the fans in the bedrooms with thermostatic fan/lights, converting the garage to a bespoke air-conditioned games room, repainting the pool deck, installing mood lighting to the pool & spa and installing a pool side thermostatic shower replacing the existing lounge fan with a large remote controlled fan and with further upgrades planned

Amazing Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Great home for family or big groups. The rooms were nice sized with tvs in each room. The house was so clean when we arrived I wasn't sure anyone had ever stayed there. The game room was a great place to spend evenings and my kids loved it. We did a cookout and enjoyed the warm FL weather. There are grocery stores and some resturants within 5 min of the house as well. We didn't get to use the pool since we did Disney World instead which was only about 20-25 min away. Everything was perfect and my family and I couldn't have asked for anything better. We will definatly be returning next year.

Property Managers Count!

  • 4 of 5

Vacation homes get a lot of wear and tear, this home is no exception, but the owner and property manager seem to do their best to keep it in good shape. We did experience several problems with the pool/spa which was dissappointing because the pool/spa was our main reason for renting a vaction home. What I can say is that the property manager was awesome! Everytime we had to had to call him, he was quick to respond and did his best to get the pool/spa working. The house Had plenty of space for our group of 7, 4 adult and 3 kids. The little extras we found in the house were handy, such as a sewing kit, first aide kit, cards, crayons, etc. Although we didn't need them, for those bringing litttle ones the high chair and portable crib are great, but the you might want to bring your own stroller, as the one in the home will only work for a very small child, but not an infant, although it is almost new. The location is close enough to highways for easy access to everything. The neighbor hood was quiet, clean, and well kept. If you are traveling with someone in your group that can't handle stairs, although this house is two stories, they will find everything they need on the first floor, and others can use the upstairs. I would definitly stay in this property again if the pool/spa was fixed. (Pool/spa problems we had during the stay were filtering, circulation, and heat.)

Owner's Response: Thanks Paula for your review. We have a comprehensive maintenance schedule to ensure that the Villa is at its best for each and every guest. We visit the Villa at least once a year and undertake the larger upgrades and refurbishments whilst there and are constantly in contact with our Caretakers, Linda and Philip to ensure smooth running of the Villa. We are fortunate that they have the same high standards as ourselves and benefit from them living on the same community which enables them to respond quickly when any unforeseen problems occur. Unfortunately Philip could not determine the root cause of the pool issues you experienced, so took measures to maintain the pool service and try to minimise any disruption during your stay. Once vacant a more in-depth investigation, which required the pool to be down for over a day, revealed the cause to be a partial blockage in the valve on the return water pipe caused by a piece of shredded material (which has possibly moved over time) and had also "blinded" the filter cartridge, both of which, would have limited the water flow. The system has now been flushed and the damaged parts replaced. The point of entry is thought to be via the skimmer basket area and access to this has now been restricted. We sincerely apologise and hope this did not mar your vacation. We would love to welcome you back and offer you our repeat guest loyalty discount off your next stay. Kind regards Helen and Gary

Excellent Place for stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious and very clean and in a quite neighbourhood. We enjoyed large swimming pool and the spa which was always heated to right temperature and was comfortable even during the chilly evening.

It was nice that the caretaker came around half way through the stay to check to see everything was ok and the owner was very easy to communicate with and prompt with any answers to questions.

I would certainly recommend this place to others.

Owner's Response: Hi Peter Thank you for your kind review. We are glad you enjoyed our Villa and the large pool which is one of the features that attracted us to buy the Villa. Our Caretakers always try and make contact as soon as possible when guests stay so that they can ensure everything is in order. We hope you decide to come back and take advantage of our loyalty discount of 10%. Kind regards Helen and Gary Barnes

Family Christmas Vacation

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is certainly a home from home. Right from enquiry stage, the owners provided great customer service and made booking very smooth. I am picky and always concerned of bedding, towels etc but no worries here. Good quality linens and all very clean throughout. We had an issue with the pool during our stay but the management were very quick to attend and did their very best to resolve the problem. I have stayed in many rental properties during our yearly visits to Florida and this has been right up there with our favourites. The area was quiet but close to supermarkets and access very easy to I4 and all attractions. Would not hesitate in recommending this property to friends and family. You will not be disappointed with this place.

Owner's Response: Thanks Graham for your kind review and are glad you enjoyed your stay. We are very particular in the quality of linens/furnishings that we provide, as this is one area we always felt was lacking in Villas we ourselves rented prior to buying our own home. We are very lucky to have caretakers living on the same community who are able to address any issues our guests have to ensure a speedy resolution. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kind regards Helen and Gary

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

This villa is a home from home everything you need to make your vacation one to remember. This very spacious villa is modern and comfortable. There was 6 of us to begin with followed a few days later by our close friends. Even with 9 people there we never got under each other's feet. Amazing pool, with sound system we had plenty of aqua dance classes from my 10 year old daughter and her friend day an night with the pool lighting on. Master bedroom was to die for the bed is huge an so comfortable. We had a few pool competitions in the games room. We have been truly spoilt in this villa and the owners are a pleasure to deal with. Will definitely be booking this villa again for next year. Loved it and so close to all the theme parks
