He is at Terra Verde most days and responds promptly to phone calls. For added security our unit has a motion sensor entry light, an electronic door lock so you do not have to worry about late entry or losing the key plus an additional keyed entry if you want extra security. We actively solicit guest feedback and in 2011 we have added extra wine glasses and an overhead fan in the master bedroom in response to suggestions.

I am a retired University Professor - most recently with DeVry and have two great kids and a lovely wife. We used to live in the Caribbean (hence the photo) and bought our townhouse in Florida for holidays in an area with lots of things to do (no Disney or super Walmarts on our island). We love to return to our townhouse for its walks around the lakes, the patio barbeque, the great TV and sound system, and the pleasant weather. I am not so keen on the painting and minor repairs but we want you to have a great visit and recommend us to your friends.

Terra Verde is a pretty, well maintained, friendly gated community in the heart of the theme park area and yet situated in a quiet country location. Terra Verde is family and senior friendly with a pleasant walk around the small central pond with fishing and palm trees surrounded by mediterranean style homes. Our home is very close (less than 3 minutes walk) to the clubhouse, pool, climbing area, basketball court, beach volleyball, and playground. Our vacation home is a great location for our guests to enjoy Disney, Epcott, Universal, Cape Canaveral and the Everglades. Orlando has great connections to the US, Canada, and Europe.
Our Terra Verde home is newly furnished (just purchased immediately after buying the property). It has a spa, 46 inch LCD TV with BluRay/DVD player and wireless internet (you may also be able to connect directly by Cable). It has one Queen sized bed in the master bedroom with attached ensuite and two twin beds in each of the other 2 bedrooms. There is a walled in patio with new furniture and working spa that can accomodate up to 8 people.
