Pool Area.

Guests can relax on the large cool decking area. Pool furniture for up to ten people is provided. The screen netting around the pool provides full protection from insects while still allowing the sun through.

From the pool area there is direct access to the third bathroom. A large Cast iron barbecue is also available for guest use.

The pool faces South/South West, which means that the sun is shining on it from sunrise until nearly sunset.

Renting your holiday home from us guarantees that you will get all the sunshine available.

The pool can be heated in the winter months when it needs a little bit of help to reach a comfortable temperature of approx. 80 Deg F.

The covered lanai is a very large 23-foot by 10 foot, which allows you to escape the sun when it becomes too powerful and a cool drink is in order. The Fridge freezer with icemaker is only feet away.

About Roy and Angela Johnson

This home was purchased as our home in the sun, we make it special for us. When we visit, our fun is making the home nicer for you. The picture above is after we all finished painting the outside of the home recently.

Roy and Angela Johnson purchased this villa in 2000

Why Roy and Angela Johnson chose Greater Groves

This property and location was selected by us as a new build. Sun on the pool was an important factor. We purchased the plot first I still smile when I think of standing on the plot (with my Mother in Law and co owner) with a compass,confirming the path of the sun. It was perfect for all of the sun all of the time on the pool .We have owned it since 2000. We visit twice a year and still haven’t seen all that Florida offers. It is in a very quiet and peaceful location that means we can relax in the evening by the pool and only hear crickets.

What makes this villa unique

This is an end of cul de sac location, very little passing traffic. That means the children and adults can sleep undisturbed. The pool is south facing, which means, summer or winter, the pool catches all the sun available.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa from 15 dec 2017 till 12 jan 2018. The villa was very clean anf comfy. We had one chilly week but the heating and the heated pool made it very comfortable. Our grandson loved the pool. We would definitely stay here again.

A wonderful holiday in a excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa 12th Oct 2017 to 26th Oct 2017. It is lovely villa in a great location. The layout is perfect for families with lots of space for everyone. The pool area is ideal being south facing so sunny all day and lots of seating room. The villa is clean and has everything you may need. Plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. We would also recommend a visit to lake Louisa state park for a change of pace only a few miles up the road. We would definitely stay here again.

Excellent! Fantastic holiday, beautiful clean well appointed villa, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

My first impression on entering the Villa was how clean and fresh it was. As we explored the more delighted and impressed I was at the cleanliness and attention to detail throughout the villa, I knew I was going to be happy staying at the villa.

We had a brilliant holiday, the villa had absolutely everything we needed. I loved the laundry machines and as such retuned home with no washing to do. The pool is perfectly situated and can offer a degree of privacy as the villa is slightly higher than naibouring villas, so enjoyed a few rest days by the pool.

South facing pool was welcome bonus after long days in parks, to cool off and enjoy swim and cool drinks. Supermarkets, Restaurants and pharmacy ( should you need it) within minutes drive. Our particular favourite was breakfast at the Waffle House on the 27 which set us up for our long days at the parks.

There was nothing needs improving, everything was perfect for our stay, although our youngest daughter was too hot during the first few nights but a quick phone call, and Dennis came by the villa with a few new fans the same day for our needs - thanks Dennis.

Sad to leave, had best holiday ever. Thank you to the Johnstone family for letting us stay in your lovely home, and hope to return again soon!

Fantastic holiday in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in a Florida villa and we loved it! The villa is located in a lovely, quiet area, tucked away from the main highway but still within very easy reach of all amenities. A few minutes drive to the supermarket and plenty of restaurants and shops. Close to Disney and other theme parks which was perfect.

The villa itself is lovely inside and out. Spacious and well-equipped for our needs. We ate some meals in and some out and had everything we needed to do so. Particularly for me I was pleased with how CLEAN the whole place was; we have stayed in other rental holiday homes before and often the level of cleanliness is not up to scratch. The villa, however, was clearly well kept and in a great, clean condition.

The pool area was great - I loved being able to sit and drink my coffee outside while the sun slowly works it way over the pool - there is plenty of sun all day, but the covered parts of the lanai give plenty of shade for when you need it. Pool was great, kids loved it and was a perfect size for our two.

I'd highly recommend this villa, it helped make our trip if a lifetime a brilliant one. Thanks to Roy and Angela for the stay!

My family and I spent 10 nights in this house and had a wonderful time. Everything really was perfect. The owner, Roy, was great to deal with. We had several message conversations prior to the trip. He really wanted everything to be perfect for my family. And it was! The house was clean and comfortable and had all the amenities from home. The house paid for itself by what we saved by not going out to eat for every single meal. The pool was so refreshing after long days at the parks.The house is 15 maybe 20 minutes from Disney. If your looking to stay in the Disney area, this is the place to stay.
