Greater Grove Villa Rental Photos and Description

32x14ft Heated pool, 2 mins from Publix, quiet residential neighborhood

** A cracking holiday villa that is real value for money **

This 4 bedroom 2 bathroom villa (sleeps 8) is located in the quiet community of Greater Groves on Highway 27 near to Walt Disney World (8 miles - 20 minutes - from Animal Kingdom).

The villa has a new fully-fitted kitchen (Aug 2013) with granite countertops and cherrywood cabinets, lounge area, a luxury master bedroom with large ensuite and walk-in wardrobe, two further double bedrooms, a twin and the house bathroom. A highlight of the villa is the pool, which is 32ft by 14ft, free form, very private and south-facing, capturing the sun all day.

When you need a break from the glorious sunshine there is an HD TV (300+ cable channels), a DVD player that plays both US and UK discs and a US Playstation2 (with games). There is also FREE superfast wireless broadband internet (60Mb) and FREE telephone calls nationwide to US and Canada.

We are within walking distance of a newly-opened Publix supermarket and less than 5 minutes drive from a WalMart Supercenter, local restaurants and take-outs.

Golf: The immediate Orlando area boasts over 25 golf courses including Greg Norman's Champions Gate course which is also home to the David Leadbetter Golf Academy, a mere 15 minutes drive from Greater Groves.

Even closer, and more affordable, are the courses of Legends Golf and Country Club, Orange Lake Golf Club (one course designed by Arnold Palmer) and Highlands Reserve Golf Club. If you fancy honing your short game there are also plenty of challenging 'Executive Par 3' courses, notably at Kings Ridge and Polo Park (both 10 mins away). A fabulous golfing resource right on your doorstep. And do not forget the Walt Disney World championship courses - its not often you get the opportunity to chip out of bunkers shaped like mouse ears!

With a myriad of golf courses so close to Greater Groves there is no need to pay the high costs of on-course accommodation. Our Villa gives you the space to unwind and relax in a private pool after a good day's golf.

On Your Doorstep: Our villa is in Greater Groves, a quiet residential community on Highway 27 about 2 miles north of the junction with the US192, to the west of Orlando close to Walt Disney World. This handily located and up-and-coming area makes an ideal base from which to visit the sights and sounds of central Florida.

The community is still largely comprised of resident homeowners with the iconic yellow school buses trundling through its streets each morning to collect the local schoolchildren.

The community is complete and has a large recreational area at its heart. This contains two tennis courts, a basketball court, a large grassy play area, a children's playground and a large communal pool with covered seating area (all available to guests at the villa).

As well as the supermarkets and restaurants nearby there are also gas stations, small shopping plazas (including small independent shops such as a bakery and an ice-cream parlour as well as well-known brands such as Subway, Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts), a gym and a drop-in medical centre - all within 5 mins

Expansion of Local Amenities: This area west of Walt Disney World has seen a high level of investment in local amenities over the last 5 years, especially along the US 27 from the junction with the 192 north towards Clermont. The highway itself was widened and several new light-controlled junctions to the existing neighborhoods were installed to aid road safety. Several major retailers have established new stores (e.g. WalMart, Publix and Lowe's) as well as new branches of banks and fast food outlets. The new neighborhoods that have fed this expansion have brought with them additional facilities such as a public library and new medical establishments. It is a growing residential area and businesses are investing to meet local demand - which is all good news for vacationers! Local restaurants include famous chain names such as Chilis, Santa Fe Cattle Co, Longhorn Steak House, Bahama Breeze and Olive Garden.

Perfect villa in a great peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is perfect and is in a great location with all amenities close by. It had everything that we needed and was so beautiful. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything that we needed and the bedrooms were comfortable. I really enjoyed the lovely private pool which is not over looked and has a large seating area. The villa is large and very clean and tidy. I really liked the layout and the villa had everything that we needed. I would recommend a stay to anyone. The owner is so helpful and made the booking really straightforward. The location is so peaceful and friendly that we are hoping to stay again soon.

A Home from Home!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 16 night stay in this villa. It is our second stay in this villa and we will happily return in the future. It has everything you could possibly desire and Mike is extremely accommodating and easy to deal with.

The villa is spacious and private and is situated within a quiet residential area, which is easy to find. It is spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfy, ideal for a good nights sleep after long days at the parks. The cable TV was great with an On Demand service which meant we could catch up on some TV we were missing at home! The new leather sofas in the living area were also very comfortable. The wifi is fantastic, very fast and easy to connect to using the password provided.

There were no bugs of any description inside the property or the pool area. The pool area is great, it gets the sun all day and the pool is very clean. It is also a good size for swimming or relaxing. We did catch a slight smell from the water treatment plant on a couple of occasions but nothing terrible that would make us avoid the pool area!

The villa is within a 10 minute drive of all the main places to eat and Publix is right across the main road. Walmart, Super Target and another Publix are also within a 10 minute drive. It is 20 minutes depending upon traffic and the time of day to Disney, we did not use the toll roads at all to go anywhere apart from the airport.

We really did not want to leave and would not hesitate to recommend this villa.

A fine location for a Disney holiday

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in a number of locations over the years, the previous being Mission Park - the next estate up the Us27.

Great Grooves is quite a large estate, but well presented and mostly very quiet. The Sandhill cranes are a frequent sight wandering around. The villa is large and very well equipped. The Tv and cable package is contemporary and the furniture was to a better standard than we've seen before (in more expensive villas). The villa was well presented and spotless, we didn't see any bugs anywhere for our 2 weeks. The pool is large and a good 6 feet deep at one end.

The owner is reliable, helpful and the booking was easy. The management company are unobtrusive and the manager lives on the same street, several doors away.

The very quiet Publix supermarket across the road makes shopping a breeze. Driving to Magic Kingdom or Epcot was about 20-25 mins in the mornings, mainly using the toll road 429. It avoids several sets of traffic lights and saves a good 10-15 mins when its busy, and its certainly a quieter and less stressful journey.

On the map the estates along the Us27 look quite far out, but they aren't. They provide a little escape from the parks and are well serviced by the local conveniences.

A previous reviewer mentioned the smell from the sewerage plant which sits between Greater Groves and Mission Park. To be honest, we did smell it a few times, but only when the wind was blowing from the North. It was pungent, but as we live in the countryside in the UK, not something we haven't experienced before.

This villa is a great size and well equipped. Given the location and price, it's very hard to beat.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this Villa for the first half of our recent holiday to Florida.

The villa had everything we could need and was clean and tidy throughout. Also, being close to highway 27 & 192, mean that everything you could need is within a very short drive (Walmart, Publix, Walgreens, many restaurants, take out food, disney, gift shops etc).

Although there were only 2 of us staying, the villa is easily big enough to accommodate 6-8 people comfortably.

The pool is a good size, with plenty of room around it for relaxing.

Furthermore, Mike was a pleasure to deal with and was very helpful all the way through the booking process.

Would definitely recommend the villa to any groups of up to 6 people looking to stay near Disney and Universal.

Feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is perfectly stocked with everything you could need! Its comfortable and convenient to get to downtown Orlando but not be stuck in the hustle and bustle! Visit Lake Louisa State Park right down the road! Gopher tortoises, alligators, deer, and birds galore! A great little find! Mike was great with communication! Would gladly come back! Thanks for a great getaway, Mike!

Where do you live?


  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a week and it was amazing. We were very comfortable and happy. The villa is exactly as described but offers much more. Everything we wanted or needed was there, the rooms are all very clean and well kept. The pool area is loads of fun! It is located in the perfect spot, only minutes away from dinning, shopping and Disney! A car is needed for transportation. It was a wonderful stay and we couldn't be more pleased. If you're looking for a home away from home, this is the best offer. The price was also great!
