About Catherine and Keith Baker

We had the opportunity to visit Florida on a fairly regular basis and decided to invest in a villa there for our stays, and also for friend and family use.Our three teenage daughters were, of course, delighted!

Living in Worcestershire in an ancient Medieval cottage, the new, light and airy open plan villa was a welcome contrast to home in the UK. Although our three daughters, now in their twenties, have all left home now, we still enjoy family holidays in our Florida home, upgrading and ensuring it is always well equipped for our guests. We visit whenever we can.

Catherine and Keith Baker purchased this villa in 2001

Why Catherine and Keith Baker chose Calabay Parc

Once we decided to buy a villa, our decision to buy on Calabay Parc was easy. In 2001, Calabay Parc was just being developed so we were able to buy off plan with our choice of plot, one that was South facing for optimum sunshine, not too close to the main highway, and with open spaces behind us and no rear neighbours.

We wanted a property on one level so that it would be inclusive to all ages. This also means you don't waste your energy running upstairs, it can be used for the Theme Parks! Our chosen villa, we feel, is ideal for your holiday of a lifetime,and due to its layout, suitable for one or two families.

Calabay Parc is well situated, just off Highway 27, so an easy drive for shopping Malls, Attractions and East and West coast beaches, which we always make time for a visit each holiday.

What makes this villa unique

Calabay Parc has earned a reputation as one of the best communities for a Central Florida vacation With beautifully landscaped gardens and manicured lawns, with maturing palms and oaks, and 24 hour monitored CCTV cameras for added security, no wonder our guests wish to return to our villa . As a family we still get the same excitement over our holidays there, even after all these years. Over the years we have replaced and added to the furniture, furnishings and contents, with stylish decorative features in each room.

Key collection on your day of arrival will be simple...no need to travel to an agency across town, your key will be in the villa lock box and you will be able to use your allocated code and open the door to your spacious holiday villa almost 2000 sq feet of air conditioned living space and perfect views ...watching hot air balloons drift past whilst drinking your coffee on the lanai in the early morning; or, later in the day, maybe enjoying a cool glass of wine or beer whilst admiring a passing swallow tailed kite or tortoise plodding past!

For a change of scene you can relax in the Games room and enjoy some friendly family rivalry over a game of pool or table football...or watch the children play whilst you enjoy a drink at our themed bar table!

We believe that you will love your holiday staying in our villa. Our web site has further details, photos and numerous guest reviews. Follow the link provided if you would like to read them.

Full written receipts and a villa information pack will be issued before you travel, and we are always happy to answer any questions you may have .

Guestbook comments from the owner

My daughter & her family joined me for a week's break at your lovely villa. We have all said ( even the boys), that this has been the most relaxing holiday ever!

The villa is beautiful with everything you could possibly want. Everyone had their own space and I loved the walk - in wardrobes.

Once again, many thanks for letting us stay here and I would certainly like to come again.

Lovely spacious Villa

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 2 week stay, it’s clean spacious & has everything you need throughout your stay. It has a very good size pool kids couldn’t wait to return to the pool after being at the Parks. Calabay Parc is lovely & quiet with plenty of restaurants near by. Thank you to the owner Catherine for your email returns with information about the Villa & the area.

We had a fantastic time!

Good sized villa in need of some upgrading and refurbishment.

  • 2 of 5

Good location for Disney parks in a nice quiet development.

Some degree of upkeep of property required. Single beds in smaller rooms need replaced now,with something fit for purpose.

Tiling in bathrooms cracks/grouting and kitchen areas needs addressed.Sinks and toilets in need of attention.

Couches in living room are showing age and should be replaced with something that is comfortable and free of feathers.

Glass topped tables in living room should be replaced with something much more child friendly and less hazardous.

Carpeting throughout should be freshened with new, palm room had some burn or stain marks at door and foot of bed.Stains also on living room carpet at side of main couch.

In kitchen itself lack of cooking trays, no scissors amongst many good utensils supplied. Also no items in first aid kit box.

Pluses for property are its size, good enough for 6-8 people.

Good sized games room again that could do with a bit of modernising and updating of equipment.

Supermarket close enough to drive in 5 minutes with a couple of stores/ eateries also located at same site.

Many other developments popping up nearby to entice holiday makers so would hope Calabay Parc tries to keep up with what is going on around it.

Owner's Response: Very disappointed to receive this review today. We are very approachable and always hope our guests will let us know if they have any issues during their stay but we were unaware of any of these problems . All of our guests staying over the past few months have given very positive reviews and feedback so we are sorry to hear that there have been some issues found with our villa on this one occasion . As a holiday rental staining to the carpet is inevitable but it is regularly deep cleaned. Some marks from strongly coloured childrens drinks can be impossible to remove. The first aid box is filled when we visit but inevitably contents are removed and used by guests when needed. Guests have always remarked on the well stocked kitchen. Sorry the scissors were misplaced. We usually have 2 pairs for use. The sofas were replaced three years ago. We chose "top of the range " sofas which were built to last and which we and our guests have all, to the best of our knowledge, found to be comfortable so we are surprised they were found to be uncomfortable on this visit. The feather cushions were chosen for their quality as a preferable option to foam . We will get the twin beds checked but have not heard of issues with them until now. The guests who holidayed in the villa the day after this reviewer left said this: "Your home is a joy to enter especially after a long flight. As always it’s absolutely spotless a real home from home. Just waking up after a great nights sleep watching tv (love American television) and planning our first day here, with a cup of tea of course!. Thank you again for everything and as always your home is perfect." so we were very surprised to receive this review today. We are glad that our villa was found to be in a great location and the spacious interior suits 6-8 guests. Our guests always seem to enjoy the Games Room too.

The Perfect Disney Vacation Week

  • 5 of 5

The house was the perfect size for the 7 of us. Plenty of space and privacy. The kids (and big kids ) truly enjoyed the game room. We used the pool in the morning before heading out to the parks as well as cooling off on our return home. Nicest think about staying off property is we could use the pool anytime we wanted and saved a tremendous amount of money cooking at home. The home was absolutely beautiful and well stocked. The washer and dryer allowed us to pack less and the last night we did laundry so once we get home we have even more time to relax!!! The house was close to restaurants, a Walmart and food stores as well as a 15 min ride to the parks. The house was in a very quiet and private neighborhood. We packed a lot into a week and everyone is going home with a lifetime of wonderful memories. Thank you for opening your beautiful home to us!!!!

Clean home with lots of sun ☀️

  • 5 of 5

Hi

We are from Nl , Canada . Our family of 4 was more than thrilled with this home . The way the home faces seems to get sun all day , and had a sitting area in the shade with a fan overhead :) there is also an outside drying rack and electric grill outside that's included .The screen had no tears that surrounded the pool area so we had no flies etc and could sit and relax .

The beds and pillows were comfy . The house smelled fresh and is very clean . We found that the kitchen had all the utensils that we needed .

The freezer had an ice maker which we loved .

The games room is excellent . We enjoyed the Foos ball ball Table and pool table on rainy nights . Had a portable fan as well that you could use while playing in sports room .

Our check out time was at 11 which was perfect . The book said late check out was an option as well . We used our in room safe that was included .

We continue to stay in this area because it's quiet , clean , and close to wendys , McDonald's all just minutes away .

The most important thing about when your choosing a home rental is being able to communicate with the renters . In this case the Bakers got an A plus . The home owners were easy to reach , and more than helpful in many ways .

They provided excellent customer service . The house looks just like the pictures . I would recommend this home :) we had a family of 4 but the 4 bedrooms / 3 bathrooms and 2 eating areas can easily accommodate 2 families . Also has room to park a few cars .

Thank you

Bernadette

To summarise..Beautiful, peaceful, clean, organised, very well maintained home from home comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I have been holidaying in America, especially Florida for approximately 20 years and believe me we have stayed in many different styles of accommodation and, to be fair many have been very good but our stay at Catherine and Keith's home at Calabay parc stands out head and shoulders above them all.

We have literally just returned (today) from our first stay there and we're so impressed.

The house it's self is very spacious, very clean and well maintained, beautifully decorated and obviously loved by Catherine and her family, your every need has been anticipated (right down to a blue folder with instructions on appliciances and tips on places to go, driving in the US and even the local wild life!).

Catherine is a lovely lady and an absolute pleasure to deal with, no matter what question you may have Catherine replies quickly and efficiently.

We had the most relaxing and wonderful time at Catherine and Keith's beautiful home, we had anticipated this and had already booked for this November and believe me we are so glad we did, we had a wonderful stay and are already counting sleeps.
