Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6 people

This comfortable villa located in a residential location offers holiday accommodation that feels like home. Furnished to a high standard you will find everything required for your perfect holiday.

Its corner plot position means that the pool is not overlooked, and it receives the sun all day long - what more could you want! There is a large community pool just 5 minutes walk away, along with children's play area and tennis / basketball courts.

The villa comprises a fully fitted kitchen with breakfast area, open plan lounge diner, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, one of which is ensuite to the master bedroom. Within the double garage is a superb games room including a brand new American Pool table - great fun in the evenings.

Golfers Info: Around the Orlando area there are many excellent courses. Locally, both Legends (6 miles North on US 27) and Orange County (9 miles away on the 192) boast championship courses.

The nearest course is probably Highlands Reserve, about 4 miles South on US27. You usually need to book seven days in advance.

You will find many of the courses offer “Twilight” hours, normally after 1pm – 3pm (depending on the time of year). If you can get round reasonably quickly you should get 18 holes in – and at a reduced green fee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just to let you know we had a great holiday and really enjoyed our stay in your lovely property. The pool was a massive hit with the children (and us) especially in the late afternoons after returning from the parks. The BBQ was a bonus and put to good use. The pool table kept the children amused whilst we prepared breakfast and the neighbours even let us use their basketball net.



Thank you for a wonderful holiday, the house is in a great location and was perfect for our needs ... we look forward to using the property again next year. (JP - Northamptonshire)

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The villa and pool was very clean. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. There are gas stations, Walmart and plenty of restaurants in the area. This was perfect for our Disney Vacation and a short drive to the parks. Would definitely stay here again for any future visits!

Property was as expected

  • 3 of 5

We found the villa to be in a very quiet, as we like it, part of the Greater groves community. Easy to find and accessible to all things to be visited. We have stayed at quite a few villas in and around Orlando including glenbrook and highgrove that are in the near vicinity and we found this villa to be in need of some tlc. Whilst it was clean and tidy it was typical of the now villas to rent in the area and we have found that while prices have risen on rental it doesn't always reflect in the property's standard. Many villas like this are probably already paid for and are just an income. This is a generalisation of the villa and whilst we have stayed in worse we have also stayed in better. This shouldn't put people off staying here but you should know what to expect.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Whilst I'm happy you found the villa to be "as expected", I'm sorry it didn't exceed your expectations, for this is what we aim for. We have upgraded furniture in the villa this year, and will continue to invest on an ongoing basis. This is our own Holiday Home and so we like to keep things as good as we can, but also not charge "top dollar" prices for guests who stay whilst we are not there. I hope that we continue to offer excellent value for money for people who stay here. Thank you again for your feedback. Chris

I was very happy with this property. The pictures is exactly what you see when you get here. The property and pool was clean and the kitchen was well stocked. There are stores and shopping in the area and Rt 192 is lest them 5 minutes away. I will stay here again. The neighborhood is very clean and quite.

Excellent villa stay as usual!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to this villa for so many years that we have lost count. We brought our teenagers and now come as a older couple as the kids have flown the nest.

There is a Super Walmart where you can buy anything, food, clothing, souvenirs or water noodles for the pool. It is two miles away with a Lowes next door.

The Irish pub is good, gators dockside is casual.

Blue Herons walk around looking for food in the morning. So nice.

Car: recommended

Conveniently situated just off Highway 27 at the end of Highway 192 you are just 15 minutes drive from Disney World. The 192 offers numerous restaurants, shops, water parks and crazy golf courses amongst other attractions. There is a Winn Dixie supermarket and a large Wal-mart store where you can get all your requirements just a couple of minutes away.

The villa is perfectly situated to enable you to relax after a hard day at the parks or shops. In a quiet, relaxing environment away from the tourist hustle and bustle, but just minutes from all the big attractions.

If you fancy a trip to the beach just join the Interstate 4, which will take you to Tampa and Clearwater beach to the west or Cape Canavarel and the Kennedy Space Center in the east.

Other Activities: Theme Parks.
