Overview

Calabay Parc Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Enjoy one of the best rented houses in Orlando.

A beautiful five bedroom, four and a half bathroom two floor villa just 15 minutes from DISNEY occupying a 10,000 sq foot plot. We have a stunning 1850 sq ft pool deck which has a huge 12 seat dining table and another 8 seat dining table plus gas BBQ and a Ping Pong table for your keep fit and sporty ones.

Our gorgeous heated & illuminated swimming pool will cool you down after your relaxing hours in the glorious sunshine.Please note there is a small charge to heat the pool.

On this deck you can play ping pong, darts and we have our very own real casino poker table complete with full poker set. Great entertainment at day or night in the covered Lanai area

FREE UNLIMITED HI-SPEED WIRELESS AND WIRED CONNECTION BROADBAND INTERNET ACCESS AND FREE UNLIMITED LONG DISTANCE CALLS

With 4 1/2 bathrooms it is a pleasure getting ready to go out for the evening, no queuing in this house !!!

We have converted our double garage to a great AIR CONDITIONED game room where we have a MASSIVE 9' x 5' CINEMA SCREEN with CEILING MOUNTED DIGITAL PROJECTOR, Dolby digital 5:1 sound system with Digital Cable. We have a DVD library of APPROX 75 free movies for your viewing including some of the latest blockbusters.

We have subscribed to the digital sports package and HBO ON DEMAND so you have a great choice of channels to watch on our 9 foot screen or on our 52 inch LCD in the lounge. For those of you who have not experienced a home cinema with a 9 foot wide screen this will be a most enjoyable and memorable experience. It is quite simply awesome. We also have a Hi Definition Samsung TV in this room for the ultimate gaming experience, or just watching TV.

The sports themed game room is 425 sq' and apart from our OUTRAGEOUS 9 FOOT CINEMA SCREEN,it also has a full-size professional pool table, electronic dart board, (great fun and safe) Samsung Hi Definition TV, Video, DVD, X BOX 360, 3 massive bean bags and sofa to relax whilst watching movies. PLEASE NOTE UNLIKE MOST OTHER VILLAS OUR GAME ROOM IS AIR CONDITIONED WHICH IS VITAL. Many owners who covert their garage to a game room do not install AC and it is unbearable without A/C especially in the hotter months. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

UK CLIENTS CAN WATCH THE ENGLISH PREMIERSHIP GAMES ON OUR MASSIVE 9 FOOT WIDE SCREEN.

Just wait til you see the kids faces, (and the dads)!!! When they enter this room.

The game room is the ideal place for the kids to play after your hard day at the theme parks.If however, they are still hyperactive and want to play and splash about in the gorgeous heated pool you can sunbathe on the luxurious loungers and ..not get soaked...unlike most other villa's which have no room around the pool. This is one of the main benefits of having a massive pool deck.

Calabay Parc is one of nicest rental neighborhoods in Orlando and is your perfect holiday choice.

Our house is very special and provides fantastic facilities for your well earned break. Our south facing pool means you have sun all day every day instead of only half the day with other facing pool decks. It is floodlit for evening entertaining and is surrounded by 21 exotic palm trees.

A south facing pool deck with dining for 16 people!! Yes,..this is a big deck. Luxurious sunloungers are dotted all around the deck. A gas barbecue is free for your use.

The lounge, master bedroom #1 and breakfast area all have access to the pool. The master bed has a safe for valuables.

The lounge has a brand new massive 52 inch FULL 1080 Hi Definition flat screen LCD TV.

There are two master en suites with two of the other three bedrooms having private access to the third bathroom. The fourth bathroom is situated next to the fifth bedroom.

The bedroom set up is as follows.

1 x master ensuite with KING SIZE BED (ground floor)

The four other bedrooms are on the 1st floor

1 x master ensuite with queen bed

1 x bed room with two full beds with private bathroom access

1 x twin room with two single beds with private bathroom access

1 x twin room with two single beds (2nd floor)

There are beds to sleep 10 guests.

( our legal maximum )

There are TV's in all the bedrooms.

There is TV, DVD, Computer Printer and Hi-FI in the lounge.

The eight seat dining area is situated at the front of the house, facing the gardens,for more formal dining.

You will find if very difficult to find a home which offers so much outdoor space and facilities.

When you book you will be asked to place a $500 USD deposit to secure the home for your requested dates.This will constitute a binding agreement between both parties.The balance will be payable 12 weeks prior to arrival.

ONE OTHER MAJOR PLUS, You do not have the hassle of going to a management company office to wait in a queue to collect keys and then again at the end of your vacation to return them which can add 2 hours onto your journey. WE HAVE A DIGITAL LOCK AND YOU WILL BE GIVEN AN ACCESS CODE MEANING EVERY GUEST CAN COME AND GO AS THEY PLEASE WITH NO WORRY ABOUT WHO HAS THE KEYS.

About IAN STURGEON

Myself Ian and my wife Sheena originate from Glasgow, Scotland and moved to Northumberland near Newcastle Upon Tyne in Northern England some 24 years ago. We live in a little ancient Market town called Morpeth. We have two children Fraser 23 and Nikki 21.

We love travelling and Florida is our favourite destination. We use our beautiful villa 3 times per year and we get so much pleasure sharing it with our very valued clients. We take great pride in offering a home with so many great features and during every visit we carry out many upgrades to keep our home very desirable and in tip top condition.

Why IAN STURGEON chose Davenport

Calabay Parc for us was the best location overall that we could find.It is convenient for all the theme park's with Disney only 15 minutes drive away.There are plenty of shops, supermarkets, Bars, Restuarants, and Golf Courses only minutes away. With interstate 4 only 2 minutes away you are perfectly located for the scenic 45 minute drive to the beaches.

What makes this villa unique

Having stayed at many villa's prior to buying our own, we put together a list of negatives which when buying our own property we could refer to and make sure we eliminated them at the building stage of our own home. The main issues with other properties we rented were as follows.

Not enough bathrooms, not enough pool deck space to have lunch,dinner and also to entertain.

With other small pool decks when we were sunbathing and the kids were splashing about in the pool,we got wet. We doubled the size of our pool deck to include a 12 seat dining table a separate 8 seat dining table. There is a further 4 seat table which can be used to provide a prep area for you BBQ food. The Ping Pong Table on the pool deck provides great fun for all the family.

I have not seen another pool deck that offers so much space.

It is vital that the pool deck is south facing (as ours is) as that is the only way you will get sun on the deck from dawn to dusk.

Throw in the 20 exotic palm trees surrounding the pool deck and you have a unique setting.

Having a cinema system at home in England we knew that this always produced the WOW factor with our friends when they visited. We decided that this would be a great idea for the villa and our massive 9 FOOT WIDE SCREEN has probably has been the best investment we have made. With over 75 FREE DVD's to watch you are spoiled for choice.This along with the game room pool table and ping pong table on the pool deck means the kids are never bored and are not in your face after a long day at the parks. The villa has so much space you are sure to have a relaxing vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

WE TRIED TO BOOK YOUR HOUSE AND YOU TOLD US TO WAIT ONE MORE WEEK UNTIL THE NEW POOL DECK EXTENSION WAS COMPLETED.

ARE WE GLAD WE DID. YOUR POOL DECK IS TWICE THE SIZE OF MY WHOLE APARTMENT IN ENGLAND. IT IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING.

OUR TWO KIDS LOCKED THEMSELVES AWAY IN THE GAMES ROOM AND WE HAD TO LITTERALLY DRAG THEM TO THE PARKS. WE COULD HAVE SAVED A FORTUNE IN PARK TICKETS IF WE ONLY KNEW HOW GREAT THIS HOUSE WAS BEFORE WE CAME. WE KNEW IT WAS GOOD BUT NOT THIS GOOD. WE CANNOT WAIT TO COME BACK. MANY MANY THANKS

Highly recommended, great place

  • 5 of 5

House was great and in very clean and well kept. Pictures are fairly accurate (but in a good way). I say fairly because the house was a bit nicer than expected ant the theater screen was much bigger and nicer than it appears in the picture.I am a realtor by trade and one of the toughest things is when the pictures of the home are MUCH nicer than the house. It always leads to a let down. Not the case here. What you get is what you see or better. The Owner is very nice and gets you all the information you need. As others stated it is about a 15-20 minute ride to all the parks, but 5 minutes or less(most within 2 minutes) to anything you may want (Walmart, Publix, Walgreens, CVS, 10-15 restaurants and bars).

We will return

Owner's Response: Donald thank you so much for your very nice 5 star review. Being a Realtor I'm sure you have sold and viewed hundreds of very nice properties therefore it is very warming to receive your positive recommendation after your stay. It is always a little worrying that our guests might find that the house doesn't live up to the pics and it is really great that you find that it did and actually exceeded a little. That is very kind of you to get that point over and one that will definitely be very helpful to our prospective clients. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with you from start to finish and I really do hope we can serve you in the future. You took great care of my property and for that I offer my sincere thanks. Take Care... Ian

Perfect base!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our stay at this fantastic home in Calabay Parc. We arrived to a clean, large home with fresh towels and fresh bedding. Just what we needed after our long trip from London. The pool was great for adults and our children as was the ping pong table and the games/cinema room.

We felt at home here and found many of the local stores and restaurants easily. Ian gave us all we needed to know before our visit and this was our go to when unsure of how things worked (such a bin day).

For us the location of the property was perfect for our needs. We were able to travel easily and quickly into the parks each day but we were far enough out to find our down time relaxing and away from the hustle and bustle.

The big bonus for us was the washing machine and dryer. Hardly any washing upon our return!!!

To sum up, great house, great location and these things helped it to be a great holiday!!!! Thank you Ian : )

Perfect place for Orlando parks!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house is awesome. We stayed four nights and wished we could have stayed longer. We didn't use the pool, but the deck and seating area are very nice. We did play darts and watched two movies on the giant screen projector TV. With the surround sound, it was just like being at the theater! The bedrooms are all nice, and this would be a wonderful place for two or three families to share. Seaworld was about 15 miles away and Disney is a bit closer. If you are looking for a clean, quiet, nice place to stay with a great owner who communicates back quickly, grab this home!!

Owner's Response: Risa thank you kindly for your great 5 star review. Yes it would have been great if you had been able to stay a little longer and made use of all the amenities our home has to offer. The huge cinema screen is always a big hit with guests and our huge outdoor pool deck area is also a great way to relax and enjoy the Florida Sunshine. I do pride myself in offering a good service to all my clients and that includes a very fast reponse to any questions or help they may need to make their vacation as memorable as possible. I really do hope we can have you stay again in the foreseable future. It was a pleasure dealing with you. Regards Ian

Great homeowner to rent from!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a trusted homeowner, and a place to stay that your family will enjoy every minute this is it! The kids truly didn't want to go to Disney they wanted to stay to swim and play ping pong... We texted the homeowner to let him know previous tenants had damaged the pool sticks etc. the very next day the house keeper showed up with bags of stuff to make our stay amazing!

Would definitely stay here again, my grown son and his wife are already planning a trip and want to rent this house next year!

Thanks for the awesome vacation ☺️

Owner's Response: Amy thank you soooo much indeed for this great 5 star review. I take great pride in providing a good professional service to all my guests and I am glad you appreciated what I did for you and that you enjoyed the house and all its great amenities. Dealing direct with the owner is much better than dealing with a management company who may have hundreds of houses on its books and cannot provide a personal service which leads to problems. Yes it can be very trying to persuade the children to leave such a great pool deck and entertainment area, I have the same problem myself when we are over. Sheena and I would love to have you stay again in the future. You were 5 star guests and my cleaning team were very pleased with the way you left the house. I thank you for that...Ian

Wonderful house for family vacation!! (4.5 stars)

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this house! Ian, the owner, was very responsive and answered all my questions, no matter how trivial, very quickly. The house is a short 20 minute drive to Disney and other attractions. House was very comfortable and felt just like home! Everyone had their own space (including grandparents!)... kids (ours 10 and 14) enjoyed the cinema room. We all enjoyed the in ground pool very much, especially on those hot FL days. We actually spent many days doing nothing but lounging by pool (Yes, NO amusement parks!). There is a grill and two large tables under a LARGE covered patio area, so you can enjoy outside dining. Everything you might need or think you need, Ian has already thought of! (including a wheeled cooler if you decide to head to the beach). Highchairs for your little ones, Video games, DVDs and pool table/ping pong for your older ones. House is situated in a nice neighborhood. If you love to walk/run, this is the perfect neighborhood for steps! Lots of loops around the area. If you are even thinking of renting a house, look no further.. this is it! Perfect for 2 families!! ! We had a week of great weather, in high 80s , and used the AC with no issues). As previously mentioned, limited cleaning supplies available so I suggest doing an inventory when you arrive and getting everything you need once you are there. Grocery shopping tip: Skip Publix.. go straight to Super Wal Mart at Cagan Crossing (on US 27).. shockingly, better selection of meats/fruits & veggies and better prices.

Fabulous home, with easy access to everything and easy to find. Ian was very pleasant to work with.

  • 5 of 5

Ian, thank you for allowing us to use your vacation home. It was exactly as stated in the ad, we were very pleased with our choice. The home was clean, stocked with new dishes and pots and pans. The pool area was awesome, well laid out. We didn't get a chance to send any time in the cinema room, as we were very lucky to have beautiful weather and spent as much time outside enjoying the lanai and pool area, without being splashed by the kids.

We would love to stay again the next time the Disney urge hits us.

Owner's Response: Ann thank you so much for your great 5 star review. I am delighted you had a great time at the house and especially enjoyed the huuuuge pool deck area. Yes its great to be able to relax and not get splashed by the kids jumping into the pool. That is the huge benefit of having such a large deck. Yes all pots and pans renewed for your arrival as well as many other items. We would love to have you stay any time again as you were immensely respective of our home and that means so much to us. Thank you again...Ian
