One Week Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The physical location (about 20-25 minutes from Universal) was not our first choice, but in the end, it was really our only choice.

The house, the land, the lake made for the perfect combination of peace and quiet that we ultimately sought out. After a long day at the parks, returning to the house was something we looked forward to... take a dip, lounge in the wonderfully manicured backyard, grill on the back porch. RInse, wash, repeat... we found ourselves in this pattern almost everyday.

Despite the owners being in the UK, they were extremely attentive when a minor glitch popped up. Rest assured they have locals taking great care to ensure that all our needs were met and in a timely fashion.

If your kids need to see Mickey every waking moment of every day, then by all means stay on site at Disney, but if you would also like to enjoy YOUR vacation, this is not a treat to miss out on.

great time, nice house

  • 4 of 5

We, my husband and I, and our two dogs spent two months here to escape the cold and snow of central New York. The house is pretty much as described. The kitchen does need to be upgraded if you truly want the luxury rating along with upgrading sheets and towels. That being said, the pool and game room provided great fun, the dogs enjoyed having the paved bike and walking trail right out front, the neighborhood was quiet and friendly, we could get to universal and disney by using 429 pretty easily. We really enjoyed the sunroom and being on the lake watching the various birds and in particular the speedy and eagle. We visited mt. Dora, winter park and winter garden, enjoying all festivals and restaurants. Our visitors always enjoyed the roominess of the house and the owners are conscientious about meeting your needs and in wanting you to enjoy your stay. We really appreciate their willingness to be available to dog owners. We definitely recommend this home and were sad to find out it was rented next February as we would have rented it again. We are glad we got to spend two warm months here and miss sitting by the pool having a cup of coffee.

Beautiful

  • 4 of 5

Besides that the house and pool need some TLC, we really enjoyed our vacation. Just sitting at the pool or in the sun room with view into the beautiful enchanted garden and the lake was so relaxing and quiet.

The house is close to I4, Publix and shopping in Altamonte Springs (Walmart, smaller shopping mall, grocery stores and restaurants (e.g. Golden Corral) - take Bunnell Road). Its not close to the parks but we knew that and that was exactly what we wanted and why we chose this house. It took us about 30 Minutes to Sea World and about 50 Minutes to New Smyrna Beach otherwise we were centrally located for trips to Orlando, old Winter Park and Winter Park Village and shopping in Altamonte Springs (there is also a large mall). This is a beautiful home and we loved it and would stay there again any time.

We are from Germany and thanks to WiFi, my niece could watch some cartoons on German You tube. Internet connection was great. Also good tv channels for the rest of us who speaks English.

Fantastic home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for preparation for my bridal party and the setting and layout could not have been more perfect! We had plenty of space for everyone to get ready, the house is very clean and well cared for. Being on the lake made it perfect to take pictures with the bridal party. There is a fantastic garden Jacuzzi tub in the upstairs bathroom too. For those that want to visit the theme parks it is about 40 minutes down the toll road (which is right down the street from the house). Taking the toll road to the theme parks helps to avoid the awful I-4 traffic! There is a wonderful screened in pool and air conditioned Florida room that over look the lake. Plenty of space for group vacations with friends! Highly recommend - and I will definitely rent again when I need it!

Peace and quiet...a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this beautiful home. It met our needs 100%. The owners were very gracious in allowing us to bring a collie and golden retriever to stay. They never showed any reservation about our pets which are a part of our family. We vacationed here for a wedding in Apopka, but did find ourselves making the drive into the Orlando area almost every day. The drive was not bad at all.

The home is decorated nicely and comfortably. The enclosed sun porch was a great place to relax and was very comfortable with flat screen tv. It offered views of the small lake and neighbors fishing most days. You almost felt like you were outdoors. The pool area was screen enclosed. We also spent a lot of time playing pool and ping pog in the huge game room. This area too had a large tv which was very nice. The washer and dryer was very handy in this area along with ironing board and iron. The upstairs bath has a large jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower. We did not cook any while we were there, but the kitchen was very well stocked if someone did want to cook. All the beds slept well...again, everything beautifully coordinated.

We would certainly rent the home again if we should go back to the area for vacation. The owners couldn't have been anymore accommodating to us. Wonderful to work with and very responsive.

Thanks again for your hospitality!

average at best

First impressions of this “luxury” villa were poor and disheartening, especially to myself due to the excitement of bringing other family members on their first holiday to Florida. To this day and for a long while, I’ll be sad that this was the villa we all looked forward to for over a year for this particular holiday. The front entrance was poorly presented with filthy untidy lawns, poor landscaping and messy foliage was everywhere. Inside, the decor is a lot older than it looks in the pictures and in places is quite rough around the edges. The wooden floor throughout the villa was very dirty and was in dire need of a brush and mop. The settee’s were quite worn, rugs were shabby and torn, fake plants and trees were filthy and the green furniture out in the Florida room smelled old and stale. The highchairs provided for our baby daughter were disgusting and had to be scrubbed clean before use. The baby gates we saw in the picture couldn’t be found anywhere. The kitchen cupboards, worktops and utensils were certainly not of “LUXURY” standard either with them being old and most of them needing a wash before use, plus there was past tenants half packs of food lying throughout the cupboards.

The pool heat we paid extra for was non-existent. Alan DID however help with this but the heat faded after one day and that was that. The extra cost was refunded, but sadly the pool was more or less ignored due to being cold for most of our stay which again was very disheartening. Plus, the pool light inside the pool NEVER worked and obviously hadn’t been working for quite some time, so wanting to swim at night after a long day of parks and shopping would had to have been in the cold dark water. From the house itself the pool could only be accessed via the main bedroom which wasn’t ideal for our large group, otherwise it was out the front or back door around the side then through the gates. You CANNOT stand on what looks like a balcony behind the house from the rear upstairs bedroom which was a letdown.

When I booked this villa it was advertised as a 5 STAR Luxury villa, but the only reason I’m giving a single star is because of the peace and quiet we had while there, otherwise I certainly wouldn’t rate this as a 5 STAR “luxury” villa as THIS WASNT IT. I can still picture the disappointing look on my mother’s face when she realised her dream Florida villa was average at best.
