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
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!
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!!!!!
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.
