SPACIOUS 3 BED 2 BATH VILLA, 15 MINUTES FROM DISNEY, WIFI, SOUTH FACING POOL

Calabay Parc Villa Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms + private, South facing pool deck

Newly built in late 2001, our luxury villa is close to the heart of Orlando's world famous attractions, yet is situated in a peaceful, upscale, 24 hour monitored development, offering the perfect setting for your Orlando vacation.

Close to an abundance of restaurants, shops and supermarkets, you will enjoy easy driving to all the area's attractions and beyond.

The fully air conditioned villa contains all the comforts of home, has a South facing pool with a large deck area and is not overlooked at the rear - sunbathe in privacy! The villa is very spacious - larger in floor area than an average 4 bed villa - plenty of space to relax in after a long day with Mickey!

Always striving to upgrade and improve our villa, in 2012 we placed all new furniture and bed mattresses in the master and double bedrooms and in 2013 did the same for the twin room.

We also recently invested in all new bed linens and pillows, new cutlery, crockery and utensils, iPod dock, indoor/outdoor grill, new coloured pool light, fast wireless internet, free phone calls and an HD TV package inc UK football.

FIRST TIME FLORIDA VSITOR? We now have as an additional amenity for our guests, a sat nav device, pre-programmed with all the destinations you could ever need! No getting lost, cut journey times and see more of Florida!

Website: For more pictures, information and links to other useful sites eg. theme park sites, flight and car hire sites, contact us for our web address. We will do our best to help you in any way possible to plan your trip and can arrange with other owners for 4 bed villas next to us on the same development if a large group wish to travel together.

Golf: Owner a golf fan! - email or telephone to discuss local courses and shops and how to get the best from a golf vacation.

We are 5 minutes from Champions Gate, home of David Leadbetter's academy and close to Orange County National, home of Q school finals for the PGA Tour in 2003 and 2005, 2007 and 2010.

Many other courses available locally to cater for a wide range of abilities, eg. Falcons Fire, Southern Dunes, Diamondback, Highlands Reserve, Ridgewood Lakes, the 4 Disney courses, Providence, Eagle Creek, Grand Cypress, Shingle Creek etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Everything has been great, the villa is beautiful and has everything we need, it was great being able to watch the Arsenal match on TV yesterday as we are all gooners! We visited Manny’s on Wednesday night, beautiful meal and massive steaks. So all in all we are having a ball.

Thanks for everything and letting us use your lovely villa. We all had a ball!

Myself, Jeremy and my wife Tracy, have been renting our villa for 11 years now.

We met in 1991, married in 2004 and have 2 young daughters, aged 4 and 3, Abigail and Harriet.

We live in Blackburn, Lancashire so any opportunity to see some Florida sun is welcome!

Our early years of villa ownership were spent really getting to know the Orlando area, visiting all the parks etc and gaining a depth of knowledge that we hope we can pass on to our guests in the form of good, sound advice and suggestions. This knowledge enables us to provide detailed information to the guest before arrival and helped put together a comprehensive information folder for guests reference in the villa also.

Our latest trips have involved upgrading and enhancing the villa facilities to provide all those extra touches that make such a difference.

The most pleasurable thing about our recent trips though is the expressions of joy on our little girls' faces - seeing Disney through their eyes is a wonderful experience. Meeting the characters with them, the water parks, the fireworks, the parades, Cirque du Soleil etc. all take on an extra dimension now.

We're thrilled to be able to let them have such a privilege and their excitement and enthusiasm about Florida is beginning to match ours!

Jeremy Thompson purchased this villa in 2001

Our second trip to Florida, July 1997 and on an early morning bus ride along US27 from our Kissimmee hotel to Busch Gardens, our driver mentions that frosts in the late 80's ruined the orange crop and now the groves are making way for homes. Tired eyed, we don't fully appreciate the significance of that statement.

To March 2001, and we are stood on a cleared piece of ground with a stake numbered 108 - this is our plot that is to become our pride and joy, our home in Florida.

In 1999, we were stuck for holiday ideas - we decided to return to Florida as we never tired of things to do our first two trips-we'd got a flavour but not fully explored the area or played enough golf!

Golfing at Arnold Palmer's Bay Hill Club led us to a chance pairing up with an American named Tom. Our love of golf bonded us in an instant. As guests of Tom and his wife in their Orlando home in 2000, on an early morning stroll around their neighbourhood, we realised that holidaying the American way in a residential area was far removed from staying in a hotel. The seed was sown, and after much research, our villa was purchased in March 2001. We were the first to stay there in November 2001.

Calabay Parc was the only development we fell in love with, even though at first there were just a handful of homes built. But its potential and 'feel' was unmatched by any other- and our villa could be south facing with a private outlook to the rear and with an internal layout that suited us perfectly.

Why is the villa the way round it is? We went for a 'garage right' orientation so the open end of the lanai is towards the sunset.

22 trips later, we still enjoy every minute at the villa - even when cleaning the windows or dryer vent!

We only wish we could stay more often. The parks, restaurants, shops, golf, all keep us coming back for more and there is always something new to discover each trip.

We hope that you'll feel at home and have a happy stay, hopefully on more than one occasion!

Beautiful South facing location with a private rear outlook.

Our large sized lanai is a very comfortable place to relax and our swimming pool and is hedge screened to the sides for privacy.

Spacious floor plan, a well maintained, air conditioned haven from the hustle and bustle of the parks.

High speed wi-fi provided as are free phone calls.

Quality towels and linens provided. Ceiling fans in all bedrooms, living room and lanai.

TV's in living room, master bedroom and twin bedroom. Master has HD cable service including channels showing UK soccer.

DVD player in living room and twin bedroom. iPod dock in living room.

BBQ grill and George Foreman indoor/outdoor grill.

Plenty of information given before travel and in detailed folders and guide books provided in the villa

Efficient management company on hand for our guests 24/7.

We strive to provide excellent customer service - just see our reviews!

THE PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a holiday in THE perfect villa. It is in a great position, not only for all the parks in Orlando but also the beaches on both the east and west coasts.
We were provided with all the information needed and the booking, arrival and stay all went very smoothly.
Jeremy could not have been more helpful. His villa is spacious, very well looked after and has everything that is needed for a great holiday. Golf courses, shopping and eating places are all within a few minutes drive.
If you book a stay in villa you will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time and trouble to post such a positive review, it's appreciated!
Glad you enjoyed your stay so much and managed to get a little further afield and visit the great beaches Florida has to offer. There's so much more to Florida than the theme parks.
I hope we'll be able to welcome you back again.

FANTASTIC VILLA

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this villa. It was extremely comfortable, well equipped and very, very clean. The pool is south facing and we spent a lot of time out on the pool deck throughout the day. We also enjoyed spending time underneath the shaded area complete with ceiling fan when we needed time out of the sun as well as in the evening when we wanted to sit outside and enjoy the lovely warm evenings. The villa is well located for all theme parks, restaurants and shops. There is a lot of information in the visitor folder in the villa. Jeremy the owner was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. This villa is fantastic value and we can't recommend it enough! We will definitely be booking up to visit again next year.

AWESOME EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
The house was very clean and comfortable. The owner is exceptional to work with and the management company was very attentive. Loved the pool and the fact it overlooks an undeveloped area. It is very close to shopping and attractions. The neighborhood is very well kept.

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
This is the 6th time we have been to Orlando and have stayed in a villa on each occasion. We have been lucky with previous villa qualities and hoped this would match the others but we were wrong. This villa knocked the others for 6 in every category. The location is perfect for all theme parks, shopping areas and restaurant in a very quiet area and is not overlooked.
The pool area is fantastic and if you have young children or struggle with the heat there is a nice shaded area if you want to get out of the sun, The bedrooms are spacious with very comfy beds and the ensuite in the master bedroom is huge with a fantastic bath. The kitchen has everything that you could want and more with a comfortable living room. The amount of channels on the TV is immense with the favourite being NBC Sports showing more premier league football that you can get at home!!!!
The folders provided at the villa are amazing with instructions for everything and tips for restaurants, shopping etc. Jeremy the owner was fantastic providing loads of information prior to going so you are so prepared prior to leaving. The sat nav provided is so handy as well.
Recommendations whilst there from us would be:
1.To take in an Orlando Magic NBA basketball game. It is a fantastic family atmosphere and tickets are easily available via Ticketmaster. Top tip is to buy a Resale ticket which are much cheaper than standard price.
2. Book a Disney Character breakfast. We had one at Tusker House in Animal Kingdom and it was amazing. Food is fantastic and characters come around to your table to see the children.
3. Restaurant wise would have to be Applebees, Texas Roadhouse and the kids loved Golden Corrall buffet.
There is nothing we can fault with the whole process from initial enquiry to returning. I would not hesitate to book again and recommend to everyone to stop looking NOW for a villa for your holiday. You have found a high quality villa, with excellent service at the cheapest price you will find. Contact Jeremy and book your dates before someone else does.

Owner's Response: David, thanks so much for taking the time to write such a great review - sat here in the cold and rain, reading this makes all our efforts so much more worthwhile to hear such positive comments!

We know that Orlando vacations are cherished by families, including ours, so we know just how much cost, planning and organisation goes into them. If we can help make that holiday better, then that is what we aim to do.

I really must catch up with the Magic some time - many years ago we saw the NY Knicks at Madison Square Garden and enjoyed it immensely, though unfortunately, we are never over in Florida during NBA season. However, the recommendation is hopefully something other guests can enjoy that they may not have thought about doing had it not been mentioned - the directions to the Amway Center are in the nav and the link to the tickets etc is contained in the villa information folder - pleased you enjoyed it and have passed on your feedback.

Hope to be able to welcome you back again sometime, all the best for the New Year.
