About Gareth Jones

We are Gareth and Cathie. We first visited Florida with our children in 1997 and have been coming back ever since. What do we love about the Orlando area? The sunshine, the scenery, the theme parks for the children and the opportunity to relax by playing tennis and golf, swimming and visiting beautiful beaches and national parks. Nowhere helps us unwind like Florida.

Gareth Jones purchased this villa in 2005

Why Gareth Jones chose Disney / Orlando

Put very simply, it's located in the best resort we have stayed in (and we have stayed in many other ones before we bought our house) and has one of the very best locations within the resort.

What makes this villa unique

It provides peace and tranquillity for the rest days by the pool, yet it is only 3 miles from Disney World.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is my second Stay at this Villa Casa Delfina. I left a comment before on 9/2/2009.

To be honest the Villa still the same as it was 2 years ago. It is very professionally maintained and in very good shape. Again we had a very wonderful stay and enjoyed out time.

If I go again, I will definitely go to the same Villa again.

Great Home, Everything we Expeted and More.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here and it was great. If you have any problems they are very quick to respond and are also very accommodating. This home has a great pool and it gets sun all day long. The best part about the pool is that it over looks a lake and woods and not 10 other houses. If your looking for a home which is close to everything from Disney to universal than this is it.

Thanks Again

Great location for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was a great location, close to Target, grocery stores and Disney. The pool on the back of the house was very private and it was conveniently located right off the living room and kitchen. The access to the basketball courts and tennis courts was a big hit with the kids. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely consider this house again for our next Orlando family vacation.
