Hot south facing pool for the sun seekers, with the tranquilly of a lake resort
When my husband and I, and our 2 children came down to Florida ourselves for the very first time in 2013, we fell in LOVE with Florida and all it has to offer!! Thus we decided it was a great opportunity to purchase this rental villa, and be able to offer other people like ourselves who dream of the same vacation of a lifetime!! We ourselves also use it regularly, thus it is always maintained to the highest of standards as we are checking on it, ensure our management team is keeping it up to our 5 STAR standards!
Nikki purchased this Villa in 2013
Why Nikki chose Clermont
As side from ONLY 9 MILES to DISNEY?! After renting a different house ourselves, we loved the concept of the private house and pool after a long day in the parks vs a public hotel & pool with more screaming kids! The house we stayed in was a bit small, and much older than this one. It was quite a bit further to Disney than this one. Thus we decided to start our house hunt! After searching through about 15 houses and 6 different communities.. Glenbrook came out on top every time!! Its a very well manicured community, with high standards, and an 'HOA', which means the neighbours also have to abide by the same rules and yard maintenance, so there is never a house that is badly run down, nor any safety issues, or the awful feeling of unwanted people lurking around! There is also a 24hr community camera surveillance system through out the streets, thus no need for the pesky gated entrances which can be a real pain when they wont open after a long day in the parks!! Another reason we picked this community..it is a smaller community, and it has sidewalks for that morning stroll! The streets are also line with picturesque palm trees, which surprising enough... many other suburbs do not have! We as the owners cant wait to hear the feedback from our upcoming guests as they experience their trip of a lifetime!! We have also taken our experience and tweaked this villa to have the things we felt could have been improved on in the house we staying in! You should feel right at home while in our villa, and we encourage you to RELAX... just as you should!
What makes this Villa unique
What makes this specific house so unique, it is backing onto the beautiful lake in Glenbrook Resort, along with the pool and deck being south facing allowing you to bask in the hot southern sun while the kids or others cool down in the pool!! There are only a handful of houses on the lake in GlenBrook, and only a few others are as large as ours, we are the largest house in GlenBrook centered on the lake! The villa was freshly painted with Farrow and Ball Paint, along with new bedding & linens, and refreshed, and repainted regularly, so not only will you enjoy the outside, but as well the inside. We have again repainted and refreshed many areas in the house as of December 2018, so it still feels like new! We have taken the opportunity to have some fun with this house, and have created theme rooms, take your pick from TOMMY BAHAMA, TOMMY HILFIGER, and SAFARI!? and of course for the children... MICKEY MOUSE! We are centrally located in Florida thus if you looking for the parks, we are just 15 minutes away, or if you want a day at the beach, its only 90 minutes to either coast, or perhaps you want to do universal, that's about 40 minutes, or the newest thing we came across was ZIP LINING! Yes.. Ziplining! That's a bit further away about 2 hours, but so worth the drive!

Great location and a very clean and well equipped villa.
Loved staying in this villa. Very spacious (for 8 of us) and comfortable (all sofa chairs had pop up foot stools) and exceptionally well-equipped. Every kitchen, dining and domestic item was there. Felt very homely.
Excellent location for Disney Parks, some good restaurants nearby (within 1-2 miles), a great Chinese takeaway a short walk/drive within the community, and going a bit further (10 minute drive) a huge number of good restaurants to choose from. Proximity to Disney parks excellent. 15/20 mins to get there and parked, if avoiding rush hours!
Good (as in huge and effective) washing machine and tumble drying facilities. Would have been nice to have some drying frames (or lines) to have things hang up to dry but as those frames often get broken we could understand why they aren’t there. That is not a major issue as drying places can be found especially if some bedrooms / bathrooms are not being used.
Overall, excellent villa and would recommend without hesitation. All the briefing notes and emails from Nikki, including recommendations for things to do, gave us all the information we needed and made settling in and making use of locks/alarms etc very easy and we just got on with the holiday straight away without any problems whatsoever.
I'm please to hear you fully enjoyed your stay and were able to go straight into holiday mode! That's so important to me to ensure guests don't have any hiccups and can enjoy their holiday to the fullest! Hope to see you all back again someday!
Everything was just perfect!
I've been traveling several years for the sprint softball games in FL and this house was awesome! Traveling with several other families, the floor plan of this house was great to allow each of the families some privacy. Then the kitchen/dining/living area was a nice big area to gather. Plentiful furnishings of towels, plates, cooking pots, pans, etc. Nikki is very responsive with any questions. It's a beautiful home, everything worked out perfect and I would highly recommend it.
I'm pleased you all were able to enjoy the house and its amenities between game days. Thank you for taking care of the villa while there. Thank you as well for the wonderful photos of your girls softball and the local alligator sunbathing! It is so nice to be able to and hear 1st hand the guests enjoyments. Makes the hard work in keeping up the villa that much more personal! Hope to have you all back again some day!
Great place for families, beautiful home!!!
Our family of 10, including great grandma, just can't say enough about this house, as well as the wonderful host. The home is clean, comfortable, and furnished nicely. The rooms are furnished beautifully, the kitchen is well stocked, and the space is great for large families. There are two bedrooms down that were perfect for great grandma who we didn't want to have to go up and down stairs; as well as four upstairs! The pond is great for fishing and the neighborhood is beautiful. We visited the clubhouse where we met the nicest lady who was so very helpful in sharing what all is available. There is an alarm on the pool sliding door to keep your little ones safe. We had teenagers in our group also, so the game room was a welcome deterrent from their cell phones! I can't say enough about the host. Nikki checked in on us, communicated promptly, and shared information about the accommodations and local area. As a vacation rental host myself, I appreciated the communication and professionalism! We will be back! Thank you again for sharing your lovely home with us and helping make our family vacation/reunion the best!
Thank you Angie! I am so pleased to have been able to speak with you while you were down there to answer your questions and know "great-grandma" had settled into the house and utilized the well stocked kitchen so much! Indeed there is so many things to do aside from Disney. I'm glad I could give you more suggestions to add to the fun you all had! We are extremely hands on to ensure nothing is over looked. I look forward to having you all back again some day.. perhaps next time I will hear you went Ziplining with the kids too!
Family Christmas In Florida in an Ideal location.
Form initial contact with Nikki to book Villa Esquire the customer service and communication was fantastic, she was extremely responsive to any questions I had leading up to our arrival.
On arrival, the villa was exactly as described, clean well maintained to a high standard with everything we required for a party of 9 along with instructions to make our stay comfortable.
An ideal base to visit both Disney and Universal Studios both within driving distance.
A selection of restaurants and the usual fast food names close by although not within walking distance with young children, if looking to eat out planning a restaurant on the drive back from parks may be an idea.
Would definitely recommend this property and would not hesitate to use again if returning to Disney.
Nikki thanks for all your support.
I'm happy to hear you all had such a enjoyable holiday, and found/enjoyed the high standards and extras in our house! That's what makes the extra work on our end, worth it! Best wishes for your family for 2019! Hope to see you back again someday!
Everything as described on the listing and Nikki is very helpful and quick to rsespond to any queries. Highly recommended.
Thank you David! So glad you all enjoyed your stay! Would love to have you all back again one day!
Best place to stay when visiting Disney!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at the Villa Esquire. The house had everything you would need and was very, very clean! Nikki, the owner, was very nice and quick to respond to any questions. My wife and I normally stay at a property through Homeaway when we travel and we both agree that Villa Esquire was easily one of the best, if not the best!
Thank you Joe and Heather! I am adamant the house is as promised, extremely clean & maintained and over stocked with everything I could think of!! :) I am so glad you all had a wonderful holiday!! Hope to see you all again someday soon!

There are several major supermarkets close by, Super Walmart is right around the corner on US-27, Publix a bit further down on Hwy 192. There is as well a CVS and Walgreens right at the entrance of Glenbrook resort along with the new home of the St. Faustina Catholic Church for your convenience.
