About Phil Ginn

We are a family who have enjoyed several holidays in Florida as the children grew up. Over the years, as small children they started out chasing Tigger's autograph at Disney and more recently as teenagers spend all day riding the biggest coasters. We've always stayed in villas when visiting Florida and enjoyed the space as well as the heated private pool. It's great visiting the theme parks and water parks in Orlando. Some days though, it's great to chill, splash around in the pool, a cold beer from the fridge and top up the tan!

Phil Ginn purchased this villa in 2014

Why Phil Ginn chose Calabria

We wanted a villa close to Disney and the main 192 with all the bars, restaurants and shopping. We also wanted a villa that was south facing so that we could enjoy the sun all day long, regardless of the time of year. We were looking for somewhere with a bit of privacy, not right on top of another villa and this one has no rear neighbours, overlooking woodland. The villa will provide our family with holidays in the sun and theme park fun for many years to come. The layout with 5 bedrooms including two master bedrooms works perfectly for us and our family as it expands in the years to come. Now also with an extended pool deck for even more space around the pool.

What makes this villa unique

The south facing pool overlooking woodland is peaceful and relaxing but close to the action. The bonus/loft TV room and games room are great for all the kids big & small.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from a 2 week family holiday in Florida staying in this beautiful villa. We arrived very late at night and immediately felt at home, the villa had all of the amenities we could have wanted during our stay. It is situated in a fantastic location, being within 20 minutes of the Disney parks and 10 minutes of a large variety of restaurants, however the neighbourhood was very peaceful and it was nice to return in the evening and have a dip in the pool after a long day. The villa has been very tastefully decorated, all of the rooms are large with en-suites and walk in wardrobes and was big enough to feel spacious despite there being 9 of us. The children loved the mickey theme room and having the 2nd living room was great to watch cartoons in the morning while the adults relaxed with a coffee by the pool. The owners were fantastic on the lead up to the holiday responding very quickly to any enquiries and made sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely be suing this property again and would recommend it to everyone who wants to have the holiday of a lifetime. Thank you Phil.

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this beautiful house! Plenty of room for a big family or even 2 families with 5 bedrooms which include 2 master bedrooms. It is very clean and well maintained and provides all the essentials needed! We will definitely recommend it and book it again for future vacations!

Lovely large family villa in a very nice area

  • 5 of 5

Arrived home today after spending 16 nights in this impressive family villa. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to any friends or family. There is everything you could ever need ranging from a fully equipped kitchen, games room, pool and living areas to small things like an iron and hairdryer. Even better is that it's located within 15 minutes of most of the parks and there's plenty of dinning options on the 192 Kissimmee road. I would just like to add that we had a wonderful stay and thanks for the quick reply via email. Only downside was the WiFi which I found only worked very late at night and the fact we had to come home

Owner's Response: Hi Ashley, thanks very much for your review I’m delighted you enjoyed your stay. WiFi- our WiFi is provided along with the phone line and TV channels on a community wide basis from Hotwire. The good news for future guests is that they have just announced a community wide agreement with the HOA to upgrade all homes to SUPER FAST BROADBAND along with improvements to cable tv / phone services too. This is being rolled out across the community from December 2017 onwards and should make a huge difference to the quality & speed of internet access which will still be completely free for guests. Regards Phil

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time visiting Disney and a large part of that was due to our stay in Phil's home. He was always quick to respond to questions we had prior to our trip and even arranged for an extra pack n play we needed. The house was very clean and about 22 minutes from the gates of Most of the Disney Parks. We would definitely stay here again.

but it to expensive

And also I didn't receive my deposit back !

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and 5 star rating that is very much appreciated. In terms of it being too expensive, we are very comparable with other properties of this size, in this location. We are almost completely full with bookings, have many repeat bookings and consistently high review scores, so for the quality of property I honestly think it is good value. With regards to the deposit as you know you mean the security deposit. As I have explained to you directly the security deposit has been retained to cover the damage caused by you during your stay to the sun lounger and one of the beds. The sun lounger although metal framed has been completely snapped and needs to be replaced. The bed needed repairs. Once the final cost of these has been ascertained any remaining deposit will be refunded. I'm pleased to say that for all the bookings we've had since we owned the property we have only ever had to retain the security deposit on two occasions including your own stay. Security deposit is normally refunded in full within 3-4 days after departure once the property has been checked by the management company. Regards Phil
