About Diane Dunford

Here we are, my family and I on xmas day in sunny florida. My name is Diane and along with my husband and 2 sons aged 22 and 17 we live in Wales, UK, For our USA guests,we are not part of England as many think but a separate country with our own government and language. Wales is the opposite to florida, we have many mountains and valleys and lush green fields, a very beautiful but rugged coastline, unfortunately the weather here is such that we only get a few short of gorgeous weather to appreciate our beautiful country. Our love affair with Florida began many years ago When the boys were small,Orlando,FLorida and all its attractions was and still is the best vacation spot in the world! Who wouldnt love it!

We spent several years first staying in hotels, then appartments, then finally villas and never got fed up. In fact each time we visited we found something new to do! being such a contrast to Wet Wales how could we not love it! We began just 'looking' into the possibility of owning something here 6 years ago, and in one visit spent 10days looking at resales, nothing really 'floating our boat', then 3days before we were returning home our realtor called us and said that a fantastic opportunity had just risen, the chance to buy a piece of land and have our own home built to our specifications, impossible we thought! But we went along anyway, the rest you can read below!

Diane Dunford purchased this house in 2007

Why Diane Dunford chose Waterstone

The first time we went to Four Corners it was nothing more than a big sand pit, we looked at a map with pins sticking out of it, then looked at the area of sand that we would call ours, by the time we returned to the office they were queing out the door for 'our' bit of paradise, that did it, we made up our minds there and then! (and spent the next 12months worrying about it!)We havnt looked back since, we love our home so much, all our guests comment that this can be seen and felt, and they find the house is 'just like home from home' but with lots of sunshine,very well furnished,and well looked after,the ambience makes guests feel really comfortable! That is the best compliment we can get!(along with the large number of return guests we have!)

IN FACT, WE RENAMED THE VILLA 'APRILS HOUSE'AFTER A RETURN GUEST OF OURS, UNFORTUNATELY 'APRIL' SPENT HER LAST VACATION WITH US AND HER FAMILY HAVE BEEN RETURNING EVER SINCE, THEY TELL ME THAT EACH TIME THEY RETURN THEY REMEMBER THE GREAT TIMES THEY SHARED HERE WITH APRIL ,WE KNEW THEN THAT WE SHOULD NAME THE VILLA AFTER SUCH A LOVED AND SPECIAL PERSON... I love reading guest feedback, there is no better compliment than a recommendation or return visit, we have made many friends all over the world and have many many references, with permission I am happy to refer previous guests contact details to future renters, i think that must be the best form of advertising! So if you want to know anything about our home in the sun there are plenty of people to ask!

What makes this house unique

We chose Four Corners for our home for several reasons, We had looked at many older developments and also newer developments, we found both had their bad points, the older neighbourhoods looked tatty and unsavoury, the new ones seemed only concerned with how many homes they could get on the smnallest piece of land! Four corners was alrady half developed so we knew what it would be like, the lots were larger, ours was one of the biggest on the estate. We also wanted a home where there was a mix of residential and vacation, for safety reasons.

Each visit there are more developments, shops, restaurants etc. When POSNER PARK Shopping village opened just a few mins away we knew we were in the right place. All our guests comment that we are in a great location, less than 15mins from DIsney (even closer with the new link road)Our pool/deck gets the sun from sunrise through to early evening in summer, our favourite thing of all is to get up early and enjoy the first morning coffee in the peace and quiet of the sundeck,all you hear is the birds tweeting,no sign of human life - so calm and peaceful except for the gentle hissing of an airballoon overhead!

Our second favourite thing,after walking around the hot parks all day,coming home to a hot spa with a glass of cold vino staring up at the stars!!!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

hi, I am Elaine, myself, hubby Steve, Sam 14, Jake 17, Alex 17, Jose 13, Mum Elsie, Dad grahame, all stayed in Aprils house and really enjoyed our [7night stay.

We booked directly with Diane and found her very amenable, full of knowledge and generally pleasant honest lady.

We were a bit worried that it wasn't on a gated community and that it would be unsecure, but Diane reassured us that as a partly residential estate then it is actually safer than a gated property.

I have to admit that it was the price that firstly attracted us to the house as it was on special offer, however, when we looked at the pictures we couldn't believe the rate we were being charged for such a luxurious property, we kept waiting for the 'catch' . When we turned up we thought this is too good to be true, the house was lovely and beautiful gardens. when we went in we knew we had definitely had a great bargain!

The house is huge, all rooms even twin bedrooms are very spacious, coming from a small terraced home in New Jersey we were spoilt! The house IS exactly as the pictures show, but its the ambience and comfort we loved, odd that we felt at home as soon as we arrived and the children would ask to leave the parks to go 'back to our house'. It did seem like ours by the time we left. the beds are very comfortable, the only criticism if I had to make one was that the sheets on the upstairs queen bedroom were a bit picky and we had to change them as my son found them uncomfortable, but there were several spare ones so that wasn't a problem.

The owners have spent a lot of time and money making this house a home, we have stayed at many apartments and 5 villas before but never had one that we felt so at home in. All the extras such as rainmacs for the parks (which we used on 3 days) to the cooler bags and boxes and beach chairs/umbrellas to use on the beach, and the books, dvds, pool toys really made a difference.

it was dads 70th birthday and we decided to lay the 'formal' table for dinner, I did send Diane some pictures that she can use on her site as it was beautiful to all be able to sit together.

all in all a wonderful wonderful vacation and we cant wait to go back next May . thank you - if any future guests would like to contact me I would be happy to give you a reference.

Home away from home with the most accomodating and considerate owners ever

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting homes in Orlando since my kids were 2 (20 years ago) but in 2002 we rented from Diane this incredible HOME, that makes you feel warm and like you are really at home, AND have been going back for 13 years. The home is incredible and you can see that every detail has the owner's touch. Diane is the most wonderful, loving, accommodating, honest and down to earth owner I have ever dealt with. i feel her family is part of my family and I will ALWAYS stay at her home as, not only is the the best value in Orlando, it is a pleasure to deal with such a lovely and honest owner...I can honestly say any negative comment is singular and in the end handled by Diane. DO NOT MISS OUT on this LOVELY HOME if you are planning a trip to Orlando...I live in Florida and would have no issues if you ask Diane for my phone number to talk about any concerns you might have on renting this HOME.

Truly the most comfortable 'HOME' away from home

  • 5 of 5

The owners go to all extremes to make you feel at home in their incredible home. We have stayed at this house at least 10 times since 2001 and have never had a bad experience; only the most wonderful of times for the whole family. When we first started going there my kids were 5 and 8. Now they are 19 and 22 (with kids of her own). The family still loves to stay here and we all still enjoy the hospitality of Diane and her family...Would recommend this house to anyone who wants to feel right at home with all the needed luxury and warmth of home.

Amazing house !!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing !!! Everything is decorated beautifully but with a feeling of warmth and welcoming. Every year my daughter and I take her children to Disney. As she is now up to 6 children we definitely needed a bigger house. This house fit the bill !!! It was totally clean and very kid friendly. My grandkids really enjoyed the game room. They also loved the pool. The pool is nice and large, great to come home to after a day at Disney. The pool deck was clean and comfortable with lots of lounge chairs and a baby fence that was great for the 1 year old. It was just a short trip to the Disney Parks which was much appreciated at the end of a long day. The owner, Diane was very easy to work with and even called to make sure things were OK. The management company was also great. Pam, the manager came over several time when we called with questions. We are definitely looking forward to staying in this house for our future trips to Disney.

Best Holiday

  • 4 of 5

Fell in love with the house as soon we walked in! It's so spacious and felt cosy for the family to be sat together. The games room was amazing and we found it hard to drag ourselves away from it!

Diane was amazing at responding to any emails or helping us out with the house or surrounding areas, and generally making us feel welcome.

The pool was amazing and the price was incredible for this house; I'll definitely be returning in the coming years!!

Would not rent again

  • 1 of 5

This is a lovely house and in a great location ideally situated for all the major attractions. The only negative with the actual house was that we had to clean the pool deck area ourselves and install the child safety fence. The pool was very nice though. The area made a great base for us a family. Sadly wouldn't rent again as our stay was double booked and had problems getting security deposit back

As soon as our family entered the house, we knew the next two weeks were going to be Amazing! This Villa is more than what we were expecting from the size to the cleanliness. The kids were amazed by the Playroom and the amount of facilities that were available for them to use! The pool area was immaculate and was where we spent most of our time due to it's privacy and comfort. Diane was brilliant through-out the holiday with quick responses to any questions we had and gave us really helpful suggestions on the best restaurants/theme parks. We were also amazed by the distance from the Villa to Disney World as it were only a short journey away which was ideal for the kids after a long day full of fun activities.We would definitely recommend this Villa to anyone we know and will definitely be returning in a couple of years time!
