We visited Orlando in late September 2001 looking for a holiday property and at that time Calabay Parc was in early stages of development. We visited only 2 weeks after 9/11 and for obvious reasons we were nervous about buying. However we couldn't stop thinking about the properties that we had seen, particularly Calabay Parc and we booked to go back for another look renting a property on Calabay. We were attracted to the location because of it being in a quiet area but still close to all attractions, shopping, dining etc. We also thought that the builder/developer was a bit of a cut above his contemporaries putting extra touches into the villa designs to make them stand out. By late 2003 there were very few plots left but we were lucky enough to be there when a buyer pulled out of a sale of a premium plot at the far end of the development so away from any road noise from highway 27 and with a large open area to the rear which would give complete privacy to the pool area, a rarity at that time as developers were putting villas back to back to maximise the number of properties on a development. We paid extra for the plot and when we sat with the builder to choose finishes, fixtures, fittings and furnishings paid extra again for higher quality. We were also impressed that the builder insisted on wall colour, door colour, elevation, exterior light fittings etc. being different to the villas either side and opposite to maintain the diverse development layout that had already been established.
We go out of our way to make our guests stay special. We have used our years of experience visiting Orlando and the comments and suggestions of our many guests (you are not customers or clients, you are our guests in our home) to produce information sheets on pre-holiday planning, final planning, dining suggestions, days out, visiting at Christmas etc.
We also believe that we have the best management company looking after our property. In 2013 a Florida holiday travel company carried out a customer survey and assessment of various property management companies and the villas under their care. Our management company and the villas that they manage (including ours) were the only ones given an A rating.
