Overview

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 at the parks!

We have complimentary hi speed Wi-Fi and free phone calls.

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.

About Jeremy Thompson

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

Why Jeremy Thompson chose Calabay Parc

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!

What makes this villa unique

Beautiful South facing location with a private rear outlook.

Digital, keyless entry system.

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.

DVD player in living room and twin bedroom. iPod dock in living room and new Bluetooth speaker.

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!

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!

2nd Visit and still as great!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd stay at the villa with the first being back in 2000 and I must say that this stay was as good if not better with a lot of improvements (not that they were needed). It really does feel like a home away from home. The location is perfect with a prime position near to the main entrance of Calabay parc but with a south facing rear/pool view onto the nature reserve that makes you feel a million miles from anywhere, but in reality are only a 15 minute drive from the home of the mouse and the hustle and bustle of why you are in Orlando. The communication with the owner (Jeremy) and the information sent prior to our departure were really welcome and you can tell by the little touches in the villa that the place is well looked after and loved by them. I would certainly recommend anybody wanting to visit the sunshine state to give this place a try - you won't be disappointed but make sure you book early enough so you don't miss out - we have on a few occasions! :-(
We will certainly be visiting again in the future and thank the Thompson family for the use of their villa.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a positive review of out villa. It tickles me when others get as much fun out of staying at our villa as we do.
Yes, we work hard at it and to ensure our guests have a good stay and are armed with all the information they need but reviews like this make the work worthwhile.
We strive to maintain our villa to a high standard and we thank our management company for helping us to achieve this.
I hope we'll be able to welcome you back again sometime - we already have some more plans in place for more improvements.......!

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5
Me, my husband and our 3 children(aged 14, 8 and 5) had an action packed holiday in Orlando where there was something for everyone. We were lucky enough to stay at Calabay Parc. The villa was perfect and extremely well equipped.
we found the sat nav a great help. It is pre programmed with everywhere you could possibly want to go which made the sdriving easy and stress free ! The villa is Immaculately clean , comfortable and well maintained.The owners have an eye to detail and the information we received before leaving home was extremely helpful and reassuring.Jeremy responded to any query /question immediately and nothing was too much trouble. I am sure he was fed up with my inquiries ! The villa is perfect for young or old people . I can highly recommend the Calabay Parc and would definitely stay there again. It was a welcome surprise to be welcomed with a lovely bottle of wine a very thoughtful and appreciated gesture by the owners. The days in Florida are hectic and hot we all looked forward to going home to the villa to relax jump in the pool or fall into our comfy beds.
Highlights of the holiday were :
Discovery Cove it is expensive but worth it .The Cove is limited so it wasn't too busy and swimming with the dolphins is something we will never forget.
The Florida wildlife park and airboat ride was great we saw lots of alligators and it was a welcome change from the theme parks
The Kennedy Space Centre is very interesting ( my husbands favourite trip ) we even saw a rocket being launched
A disney character breakfast was good fun and if you have a little princess a bibbety bobbity boo makeover at the boutique in the castle at the magic kingdom is a must. This sounds tacky but it wasn't . You need to book well in advance as it is very popular . There are 3 packages we booked the middle one we took our own Princess Elsa dress from home and this was perfectly acceptable . The god mothers in training were very pleasant . They are actually the make up artists who prepare all of the characters at the Magic Kingdom and they definitely know what they're doing.
Out 2 little ones did not like universal studios or universal island at all although our teenager loved it. The tickets were a waste of money for the little ones so give universal a miss for under 12s. If you are a Harry Potter fan you will be amazed .

Owner's Response: Julie,
So glad you had such a great time in Orlando an a pleasant stay at the villa!
You are quite right re. the Princess dresses - worth taking them from home if you can, Asda are a lot cheaper than Disney - provided Anna and Elsa are available - even at Disney, currently these items are going like hot cakes!
I never get fed up with guest's questions! The more knowledge I can pass on, the better guests are informed, the better time they'll have IMO. No question is ever turned down and if I don't know the answer, even after nearly 30 trips over, I'll find out as it always helps me and therefore other guests going forward.
You are right about a welcome change from the theme parks - this is always something I try to stress is that days at the parks are long, hot and tiring - depends somewhat on the time of year you visit but with children during school holiday times, this is inevitable - some down time and relaxation time planned in is essential to balance the hectic days - which is where the villa and pool come in - plenty of space to chill, swim, simple home meals etc, watch TV, listen to some music etc. The perfect antidote to the parks.
Hope we can welcome you back some time.

The place to stay

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.

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.
