Audra Savory lives in the South of England with her husband David and two spotty dogs. In 2010, she began to administer this web site on behalf of her parents in law, Jean and Bob Matthews, who are the owners of the property.
Jean & Bob Matthews come from Oxfordshire in England. Bob has always loved Florida and his desire was to someday own his own property there.
They purchased this house in 2005 as a second home. The pool was added in 2006 and in 2010
they started to rent it out as a holiday rental.
Jean & Bob fell in love with this
property the first time they saw it, It just felt right. It is situated in an area that is far enough
away from the main attractions and yet still close enough to get to them all within 30 minutes.
The neighbourhood is friendly and safe and each neighbour looks out for the other.Peace and tranquillity in a desirable neighbourhood, a well kept home and garden with a good home management company in Florida are all the attributes Bob and Jean desired in their second home and investment property.
It is a home that they love and enjoy going back to every year.
We had what we needed and were ideally placed for the places we wanted to go to.
certainly that area would be my first choice to stay at again,near enough to be involved but far enough to be away from!We liked what we saw of the area,although were only there a week before koving on.
Pool idea size for us my children being that bit older.
Would look at again if we return to America.
We stayed at this villa 2 years ago in 2012. Being from the school of "if it ain't broke" we booked our 2014 stay here also. It is virtually impossible to find fault with this villa, all the way from booking through to actually staying here. We have 2 kids aged 10 and 8 who absolutely love the place, in fact when we got there this year they went straight to "their" bedroom. The villa is spacious, cool due to the air con, huge living/dining room, 4 TVs (if that's your thing - not mine) and Wi-Fi ( a godsend checking opening times and local restaurants). The pool is just fantastic, lovely to sit outside whilst the kids merrily play in there. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could need including dishwasher. There is also washing machine and dryer (dryer not required in Florida heat) which again was great to have. One thing I would definitely recommend is paying for pool heat if going this time of year. The first time we went I didn't bother and regretted it, so this time I paid the extra - believe me it is worth it as my kids were in it every day this time, as was I. The area is quiet, peaceful and the neighbours friendly. The Walmart is about 10 minutes drive, main restaurants in Kissimmee about 20-25 mins drive. The parks are 30 mins on a good day, 45 on a bad day (traffic can be bad on Ponciana - the main road from the villa towards Disney). Universal is further north so a bit further, but not so far that it is difficult. All in all, you would be hard pressed to find a more perfect place for your Florida vacation in my humble opinion. Thanks so much to Audra who handles the booking, always so prompt when I needed to know things prior to travelling. This place really is fantastic !!!
The villa is stunning, the whole place was very clean and spacious. From opening the door into the open plan living room/kitchen to the large bedrooms and finally through to the swimming pool (which was used every day of our stay) there was nothing we could fault with the property. The kitchen is well catered for and the extra pillows and pool floats were nice touches. We really couldn't have wished for a better place to stay and would heartily recommend this to anyone looking for a great base for their holiday.
Close to all the normal Disney / Universal Parks
Very clean and well maintained property. Very friendly American neighbours... Realy enjoyed 4th of July. and the pool is larger than your average villa. Would definately rent again or refere a friend.
Owner checked everything was Ok
visited Orlando several times if want a good meal, Bone Fish or Smokey Bones on the 192 are always Good.
We can only say WOW! Very neat, spacious, everything we needed. Kids enjoyed their rooms and the pool, parents enjoy having wi-fi, cooking dishes, large and confortable bed and living room as well as laundry room. Mrs Audra thank you for your help and kindness. It was easy to talk with you. We did universal studios, was within a 35 minutes drive, 40 minutes from airport and 10 minutes from gaz station (7 eleven). huge wal mart within 15 minutes. we had a call from management checking everything was fine and a a welcome from your neighbor. Everyhting in the house was working. Plenty of bedding and towels, would only need 1 or 2 new pan. even have pool toys. We recommand it for a wonderful family vacation.
The house was great, nice quiet neighborhood. Very spacious and clean. It was in a great location for amusement parks, shopping, etc.
The only complaints we had was that the listing says "heated pool" but its only heated by the outside air temp, so its never going to get warmer than it is outside. So in February the pool never really got warm enough for us to use. The only other complaint was the satellite tv reception. Half the time the tv wasnt working and it was clear blue skies outside.
Besides those two things, the house was wonderful and we would definitely stay again!
We really enjoyed our stay in this villa, it was very spacious, and offered all the amenities we could wish for, in a nice quiet location, a real 'home from home'. Although Disney and Universal are not on the door step, it's a straight forward journey of about 30 minutes.
It was great to be able to liaise with a real person (thank you Audra) for any queries we had, and we always received a prompt reply. We would definitely recommend this villa for a stay in Orlando.
Set in a wildlife conservation area, Doral Woods is a quiet and tranquil residential neighbourhood. Only 20-30 minutes from Walt Disney World, SeaWorld and Universal Studios and approximately a 40 minute drive from Orlando International Airport or 70 minutes from Sanford Airport . The nearby Interstate 4 provides quick access to the beaches near Tampa on the West Coast or the Space Coast beaches near Cocoa and Melbourne, and all the Central Florida attractions.With a choice of Wal-Mart stores on the US192 and a Publix just minutes away in Poinciana town, you are never too far from a supermarket.
Horse World is only a couple of minutes away and offers another way to see the countryside. Trail rides are available for novices, intermediate and advanced riders. At Lake Toho boats and fishing tackle can be hired for nature safaris and fishing trips. Airboats are also available for hire at nearby Boggy Creek.
