Great House. Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here in August. The quiet location is great- within 30 mins of the airport, Disney and Universal parks. The pool was fab and provided great respite from the very hot and humid days. Chris was very helpful prior to the trip and even checked we were ok once we'd arrived. Good instructions left in the house on how to operate everything; we were never left puzzled over how to use anything. I'd certainly recommend staying here for anyone considering it.

Well proportioned, clean and tidy accomodation.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is spacious, with three good sized bedrooms. Air conditioning was good and quiet, and there were ceiling fans in all bedrooms and living room. Pool was a good size and constantly warm due to the exposure to the sun. The netting around the pool keeps out all unwanted visitors. Even though the villa is not far from a flight route, planes could not be heard from indoors. The villa is located about 2 minutes from the main route that takes you to the Disney and universal complex's. It takes about 25 minutes to get to Disney or universal studios.

Chris and Chris are extremely helpful and quick to respond, nothing is too much trouble for them. Really nice villa in a quiet surrounding.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa was exactly what we wanted. We wanted a villa with a pool in a location within around half an hour drive of the major parks where we could enjoy some downtime and this is what we got. The villa was clean, was a good size for my family of 2 adults / 3 older kids and all the information provided by the owners before and during our holiday was good.

Owner's Response: So glad that the villa location to the parks suited you all. The greenway provides a easy direct route and allows maximum time to enjoy yourselves rather than sitting in traffic. We will pass on your comments to the cleaning team, a pat on the back is always appreciated! It was a pleasure helping you with your vacation, and we hope to see again. Kind regards Chris and Chris

Beautiful. Quiet neighborhood. Good location.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is great. The pool was amazing. It was perfect to come back to after a long day at the parks. Parks were just a 30 min drive and we went to the beach one day. It was about an hour drive. We were extremely happy. It was comfortable with everything we needed and more.

Perfect for your Orlando experience!

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, can't speak highly enough of the owners Chris and Chris. They really take care of you and want to make sure you have all the information you need and are more than happy to answer questions, no matter how silly they may be.

The villa is situated in a quiet residential area. When we were there, next door was also British tourists. The neighbours are obviously use to tourist and are helpful. Locals even knocked the door to tell us we left the light on our hire car!

The villa pools temperature was perfect with solar power during our may to June stay. There is a net cover over the whole pool which minimises any bugs! You do see many lizards though! Outside the net ofcourse.

The villa is like home from home. It has all of the things you will need. Even down to ironing and hair dryers. I would recommend a trip to the super market before you arrive. We were a late arrival (8pm) and had to go out almost straight away as the villa doesn't have any consumables. Milk sugar and tea bags would have been a nice touch.

The villa was lovely and clean. The garage is large and will fit most cars. We didn't use it though because the drive was good enough. The location of the villa is good. It is about 25 minutes to get to universal and international drive. But there is also walmat and many restaurants less than 5 minutes away.

Gatorland it's very close, but Kennedy Space Centre is about an hour away, but it is well worth the drive!

We had access to the villa with no issues. You just need to follow the instruction on the app to get the key.

It very much is home from home. We didn't hear from anyone from the management company until the day before we left, so it is quite hands off. Suited us fine, but others may like a welcome call or something l, just for reassurance.

All in all it was a good choice for us and met our needs perfectly. Would definitely stay again no question about it.

Thank you C and C.
