Relaxation: Our Villa is in a delightful location, well away from the tourism parts of the area, but within very easy reach of all. It is built to a very high standard, Mediterranean design with a tiled roof and block paving. We have houses to the sides but one is offset therefore cannot overlook and the other has the residents out at work [in Disney] all day. We have seen them once on the deck - in 4 years!
The entrance to Disney is 8 minutes by car - we have timed it! We have spent many an afternoon/evening relaxing by the pool and watching all the beautiful birds, flowers and butterflies in the trees, even a nosy raccoon family! Hard to believe theme parks so close. We also have had some cranes, an armadillo and an opossum for company on our evening strolls around the sub division, even had a snake slither over the road 100 yds away!
In the autumn of 2012, we had the house and all decking repainted, new rugs in the great room and lanai, pelmets to all windows, and towels and crockery updated for the comfort of our guests. There are towels and bedding in duplicate, per head, plus several coloured pool towels. The front double bedroom was completely remodelled in 2013 with new furniture and decor.
The pool and extended deck face south, are in the sun until early evening and overlook the conservation area. There are homes to the sides but we are set sufficiently back for little to no overlooking.
Our managers, Sequoia Villa Services, live in the sub division and after welcoming you to the villa, they will take your registration details and the breakages deposit of $300/£200 or $500 if a pet in your party. This will be returned in full within 48 hours after your vacation and no dire problems found. If this paid through Homeaway, we will refund within 72 hours, on the OK from the managers.
They will explain anything you may wish to know, and are on hand to help and advise. They also rent out a sat nav at about half the rate of the car hire companies, will supply a welcome food pack at $45- -ask for detail, and a childs booster seat. They have our portable DVD player which is there for you to sign out - no cost, just return and do not leave in the back of your hire car! It happens.
We have left some DVD's and CDs in the Media unit, plus information leaflets. Also a bookcase full of books, enjoy and add to if you have spares. There is a folder of information in the villa supplied by management so have a good read through after you arive plus we will forward our villa policy and a little booklet to you, after the full rental is paid, This should help you settle in.
Guest Comments: There is a guest book in the Villa for comments. All are very complimentary to date.
Further reviews can be forwarded if required. Please read the ones already on this website and add your own in both areas. Thank you.
Off the cuff things to do
Downtown Disney for a wander late afternoon, park behind the 'tent' of Cirque Du Soleil, walk around the 'village' and then catch the ferry back. All free. A bit messy at present as some areas undergoing renovation/expansion.
Have breakfast at the retro cafe in Celebration on a Sunday morning while the local craft market is on, also walk around the lakes admiring some beautiful homes..
Visit Old Town Kissimmee for the motorbike and custom car shows, check online for what and when.
Visit a vinyard in Clermont.
Take an air boat ride at Boggy Creek, great fun.
If retail therapy your thing, visit Milleneum Mall for the high end shops and Florida Mall where all can be found. Of course there are also all the retail parks, Buena Vista & Premium outlets an easy drive.
Further afield things to do.
Silver Springs State park at Ocala with the lakes, glass bottomed boats, river trips, springs, animal rehab area,
Tiffany glass museum at the quaint town of Winter Park approx 1 hour north where you can also take a boat around the lakes.
Bok Gardens south and en route past the Eagle Ridge Mall just off the 27 a good half hour south where you will also pass the road into LEGOLAND at Cyprus Gardens
Dali Museum at St Petersberg and the beaches of the Clearwater areas.
Lots to do and enjoy including of course all the Disney/Epcot, Universal and Sea World parks. We have access to discount tickets with Kissimmee Guest Services.
We have also spent the odd night away exploring the gulf coast and would recommend Cape San Blas for beauty, perfect white sand beaches, no tourists and a great B&B inn, also Clearwater Beach with the pier, great fish restaurants, and generally a fun spot.
We are a retired couple from England with emotive links to the Space Coast. A fortuitous redundancy helped us to purchase this Villa where we like to spend part of the autumn, enjoying the weather and taking care of our home.
We wished to buy in the Orlando area but away from the mass tourism. When a 'show' came locally in the UK, we took the oportunity to choose our own stye and location - pool and decking facing south - and having bought off plan, could keep an eye on things as they progressed.
The space and privacy in and around the Villa but so close to Disney, Kissimmee, International Drive etc. Our fantastic managers a few minutes away, the ease of driving anywhere using Interstate 4, relaxing on the deck with a good book, walking around the little estate after dinner each evening and just thoroughly enjoying our times at Villa Nova.
