A fantastic place to stay!

We stayed here during the back end of July 2011, and had a fantastic holiday! Having been to Florida before, my wife and I have had our fair share of tasting accommodation, and this property has to be THE best we have used.
The property fits the listing description perfectly. Situated about 15 minutes drive from Orlando Intl Airport meant that we were far enough way to not be disturbed by aircraft, but near enough for an easy journey to and from the airport. The Villa Sol development has a Mediterranean feel to it, and feels much more homely than the usual developments that feel like a holiday home complex. The Walgreens local store on the development was extremely useful, and a large Publix supermarket was about a 5 minute drive away.
As for the house, it is extremely spacious and fell furnished, well maintained and very clean. We spent most of our days around the pool which backs onto a small lake, where you can see a variety of wildlife including turtles, sandhill cranes, small fish that jump out of the water and turkeys - to name but a few! The setting was very peaceful and extremely relaxing.
We had continual debates as to what our favourite time of day around the villa was. Breakfast watching the sunrise, enjoying the pool during the daytime, or sitting out in the evening with a bottle of wine listening to the tree-frogs and crickets! Bliss!
What was fantastic about this villa's location was that it gives you access to all the top attractions and malls, which are all accessible within a 20 minute drive. The atlantic coast is about a 40 minute drive, and if you want to head towards Tampa or the West Coast beaches, the easy access to I4 means you can be there within a couple of hours.
The owner, Brian, was extremely helpful and informative throughout the whole process of initial enquiry, booking and during our stay.
We thoroughly recommend renting this property!
