Great place with all you need!

  • 5 of 5

We come to Orlando several times a year to use our season passes to WDW and Universal. We have stayed at many of the time share style resorts as well as homes. This did not disappoint at all. I thought that maybe for the price I was in for a let down but NO WAY! This place was great. Clean and comfortable. Has almost everything you need from the kitchen to the bath. I think the only thing we bought was paper towels. We made most our meals there and it saved us a lot of money. Disney was approx 28 minutes and Universal was 20-25 and this was Spring Break weekend so traffic was unless you are staying on property at the parks it will take you that amount of time anywhere you stay. Close to area restaurants and grocery stores (Publix, Walmart,etc). The pool was great and it was nice to not have 100 other people around at the end of the day like the resorts. If you are coming to Orlando for 5-7 days and looking at Hotel rooms for $150 + a night DON'T. Book this place with Chris and enjoy you time 1000% more.

Amazing stay - February 2017

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and we felt at home from the first step in the house. The house was very cozy and clean. Our girls loved the pool (very clean and warm). We all enjoyed the beautiful view on the back. The kitchen has all the necessary tools and gadget to prepare meals for a family of six. The location is close to stores and entertainment parks, for us it was only 20 minutes to get to Disney and Universal Studios. The owner was very caring and quickly responded on our emails. Once again, thank you Chris for the amazing stay at your place.

Convenient location and clean/spacious at great rate

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Chris's place very much. Great location (close to Disney, Gatorland, Kennedy space center and Cocoa beach), spacious and clean. Chris was very responsive and easy to do business with. House had everything we needed for our stay. Get the extra heating for the pool - well worth it and great way to relax from all the sigh seeing. Played tennis at nearby parks all in all a great experience at a great rate. Will stay again and would not even review Disney/down-town options. Thank you for making our central Florida great!

Florida December 2016

  • 5 of 5

Before arriving Chris e-mailed us directions from the Orlando airport ( which he recommended a car rental which was very easy). Fabulous directions no problems and even told us a grocery store to stop at so we could just arrive at their house and relax.

The house is very clean and had everything we needed including some spices and all dishes and appliances you will ever need.

We paid extra for heat in the pool which at first we thought was way to warm at 92 but after a day at the theme parks it was fabulous to have a drink and relax by the pool.

Also anytime we e-mailed before we left with questions Chris got back to us within minutes.

Great place and I would highly recommend their place and looking forward to going again.

Neil and Susan.

Wow! Beautiful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a really well equipped, beautiful villa and we had a wonderful time staying here. The villa and pool were lovely and clean and we had everything we could possibly need. The villa is bright and airy with lots of space and the bedrooms are great sizes. The washer,dryer and dish washer were a big help and all really efficient. The pool was bigger than we expected and was great fun. We even changed our plans slightly so that we could have some time using the pool and relaxing in the villa. There are lots of shops and restaurants within really easy distance. The Disney parks were all about 20-30 minutes away with Seaworld the closest park. Chris and Chris provided so much information and were very helpful right from our first enquiry. They really couldn't do enough to help. We would love to return some time soon.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation seemingly started off on the wrong foot as hurricane Matthew hit Florida area exactly when we were scheduled to arrive and caused us a delay of a day in arrival. During that time we were in contact via email with Chris, the property owner, who was very curtious, reassuring and helpful.

We finally arrived at the villa the next day and immediately felt right at home. It is even better than what the pictures show. We loved everything about it: it's brightness, spaciousness, warmth, functionality and location. It suited our needs perfectly and was a pleasure to return to after a long day at the parks. It's location is really perfect with all of Orlando attractions with in less then 30 minutes drive. We did not end up using the pool but enjoyed sitting next to it and watching the ducks swim in the lake. We stayed in the villa 13 fun filled days during which Chris contributed helpful inputs via email.

I will recommend this property to family and friends and hopefully we will return to it on future Orlando family vacations.
