I live in Clermont FL and my family live in Puerto Rico, for the past 10 years we do a family reunion and I book a diferent house every year for them, I book many times in orange tree and a few near orange tree but wen we stay at this house (Alison house) for the past 3 years and we deside that this house will be the only house that we book for now on. This house is big, clean and very confortable. The back of the house is paradise with no neigbors just a gret view and plenty room to play football or baseball. My Family favor area is the pool and the view, is a place that you can relax and enjoy a great vacations. Like I say The Family reunion will be at this house every year until GOD dicide. Thank you Alison.
My wife and I stayed at this villa in June/July with 10 others (8 friends and 2 young children).
The villa was wonderful. It was very clean and well maintained. Everything we needed was in the cupboards (utensils, iron etc) and there were some extras such as Xbox, games etc.
The villas offered a huge living space. There was a lovely pool and jacuzzi tub outside although the pool light was broken when we were there.
A gas BBQ was provided and this was a great way for us to eat in the Orlando heat! Publix and Walmart were close by which was good and it was probably a 20 min drive to Disney and 40 min drive to Universal (we were there during July 4th celebrations so roads were busy although parks were reasonably quiet)
There was a lack of kiddies pool toys etc. although anything we asked for from the management team was provided. Sue and Alan, the couple who manage the villa, really were the jewel in the crown of our time in Orlando. The patio area was scrubbed clean for our wedding reception which we held at the villa and we were given a bottle of champagne as a gift which was so nice.
We would thoroughly recommend the villa although for 14 people it might be a wee bit too cramped (You're in Orlando though so prob be at the parks all day!)
I appreciate that the owner can't keep an eye on everything from the UK but we did have to buy drinking glasses. I'd say that if the villa was at maximum capacity there could probably be more cups/glasses etc if you didn't want to be washing dishes all the time. I am sure though that if we asked the management team this would have been arranged-nothing was too much bother.
Thanks for such a wonderful time in your amazing home!
Our ladies scrapbooking group stayed in this beautiful home in Nov09. Yes, the new Sue and husband management team is incredible. Helped us w our every need. Silly things like "cant get the cable TV channels on" can become frustrating when no one helps. I assure you- this management team comes to your rescue in 5 minutes. They are wonderful!! We enjoyed the house AGAIN. This was our 3rd time here and we will be booking again soon. Sincerely, Wild ladies scrapbooking. (S,J,P,P,D and J)
Villa was very nice, however, when we arrived the refrigerator was not working properly. Of course this happens when there are 13 of staying in the house and we have purchased about $500 worth of food for the week. It took 3 days to get resolution to the refrigerator situation, during which time we were living out of coolers and buying ice every few hours. Overall a very frustrating experience because we had to repeatedly call the management company and were not receiving responses from them.
There were other maintenance items that were not attended to as well. Pool lights did not work, light under microwave did not work, so we cooked in the dark. Garage door handle was broken so it took two people to open the garage door. The coffee maker didn't work, so we purchased a new one (and left it behind for the next guests). No telling when or if that would ever get replaced. Carpets are pretty dirty, many stains that have not been attended to. The small outdoor grill delivered by the management company was filthy. All minor things, but they tend to add up.
The Villa itself is very nice, has a great layout for a large family, and the pool area is exquisite. It is obvious the owners took great care in decorating and providing all the comforts of home. The management company, however, leaves much to be desired.
Our home is located in Clermont, at the heart of Florida. We are only 10 minutes drive from Disney World but there is more to Florida than just theme parks. We are just 5 miles from the Lake Lousa State Park with it's fishing, boating, water skiing and picnic areas. There is an abundance of golf courses within a 5 mile radius of our villa. Fantastic shopping at the Mall at Millenia, The Florida Mall and the Designer Outlet Mall minutes away. The white sandy beaches of either the Gulf Coast or the Space Coast are easily within reach.
Other Activities: Hot Air Ballooning,
Golf: There are a number of beautiful golf courses within easy reach of the villa.
