Caroline and I have been holidaying in Florida for many years. We liked the sunny climate, theme parks, golf courses, restaurants, shopping malls and Florida State Parks so much that we decided to buy are own villa and enjoy all the comforts of home in the world’s favorite vacation destination. Our fully furnished vacation home gives you a spacious place to relax and amenities at a fraction of the cost of a hotel.
When sadly we have to return home and are not holidaying at our villa ourselves, as a hobby, we rent out our villa for others to enjoy.
Caroline and I pride ourselves on providing excellent customer service and we consistently receive excellent feedback from our guests.

I found this home on homeaway because it was one of the best priced houses for our family of 6. I saw that it had amazing reviews so it drew me in. I'm always skeptical of ordering anything online but John frequently communicated with me so that eased my mind.
The day we left for vacation, there was a terrible winter storm so we left earlier to avoid it. I contacted John and asked if we could check in early. He emailed me back and said that was fine! I only gave him a few hours notice and he answered me right away. I couldn't have been happier.
When we arrived to the house, it was beautiful! When my children walked in, they started crying because the house was so beautiful and they were so happy. This was our first vacation in 6 years so you can imagine their excitement.
The house was perfectly cleaned. The pool heat was amazing for January temperatures. I was worried that it wouldn't be warm enough but it certainly was because we were swimming in 45F degree weather.
Everything looks exactly as you see in the photos. The kitchen was equipped with dishes and pans so we were able to save money but eating in most of our meals.
My only regret is that we bought the 4 day Disney passes. My children loved the house and heated pool so much that by our 3rd and 4th day of Disney, they didn't want to go because they wanted to stay and swim.
I would definitely rent this house again. This was the best family vacation for such a great price!
This was our first time renting a villa when visiting Disney and it was absolutely perfect! There were a few hiccups but it was fine. The first issue was that we had asked for an early check-in time. When we arrived at the checkin time there was a lady there who was cleaning. She was told that we would not be coming until the following day. After a quick call to the management agency everything was straightened out and we brought in our belongings. The home was beautiful and large enough so that we all had plenty of space to relax in. The house was not decorated for the holidays as I was originally told it would be. The cleaning lady told me there was a Christmas tree in the garage if we wanted to put that up, but we did not want to deal with that. Really it wasn't a big deal, it would have just been a fun perk considering it was Christmas Day that we were there. My entire family (& extended family) really enjoyed themselves. The pool and hot tub were clean and large enough to keep everyone entertained! The pool table and air hockey table were a nice perk even though we didn't really use them because we were all in the pool! We will absolutely rent from John again! In fact my family and I were already discussing the next trip before we left!
We have stayed in numerous Florida villas and this is one of the best. It is well equipped and immaculately clean. The pool is south facing and gets the sun all day. We paid for pool heating as we were staying in December and we like the pool to be hot. The pool was indeed warm all day and the spa was both easy to use and quick to heat.
We had occasion to call the management company for a minor problem and they were very pleasant on the phone and quick to respond.
Communication from the owner was clear and comprehensive.
We would definitely recommend staying in this villa.
Arrived on November 12 and everything was in great order. Instructions for everything was done perfect. House was lovely plenty of room for everyone. The house was clean and had everything you would need. Pool area was enjoyed by everyone and the pool heat was great. Would stay again and recommend to others.
It is a shame we only get 5 stars to work with, because 4 stars isn't enough, but in order to be 5 stars it needs to be absolutely perfect. So, if I could, I'd give it 4 1/2 stars.
Other than a few minor issues that I reported to the owner (and he quickly responded to), however, we had a fabulous time. The home is lovely and the amenities were quite nice. My entire family really enjoyed themselves...the pool, the game room, two master bedrooms, etc.
One nit-picky things worth noting: The house is not 15 minutes from Disney. It is really no less than 30 minutes from Disney property on a good day. It can take as much as 45 minutes during higher traffic times. This, to us, was no big deal at all, since we knew this ahead of time with a simple check via Google Maps the drive time to the Disney parks from the neighborhood. But it is worth being aware of when planning out your days to give yourself more like 45 minutes.
We definitely recommend staying at this rental. Thanks to the owner for a lovely time.
Our family LOVED the villa. Of all our visits to Disney, this has been the most relaxing and that was contributed to the comfort we felt in the villa. It had everything you would need for your stay. The beds were comfy, very spacious and the pool was perfect. The tv was huge and had soooo many movies available on it. No issues at all, however one minor, minor suggestion would be maybe a small toy box for younger children.
Getting to the property was easy. Once there, you are close to Walmart, Dollar Store, Big Lots, and numerous quick service restaurants. Easy access to the gates of Magic Kingdom (which was only 15 mins away) and 20-25 mins to Universal Studios.
Communication was definitely a breeze with John. Very prompt at answering any questions and very accommodating as he allowed our family to arrive a bit early and depart a bit late. WE WILL BE BACK TO THIS PROPERTY NEXT YEAR FOR OUR ANNUAL TRIP.
Thank you John and Caroline
