We have helped many families over the years to enjoy their magical holiday in Florida. We would be delighted to be able to help you and your family achieve their dreams and enjoy a holiday of a lifetime.
We both love Florida and the laid back Florida life style.
We live in North Wales but spend as much time as we can in warm and sunny Florida.
Chris Mantle purchased this villa in 1991
When you see the evening sunsets over the lake, you will know why this is a great place to come back too after a hectic fun filled day in the parks.
Ideally centrally situated for all of Florida's many attractions.
On a golfing holiday this villa was centrally located.
We had a great time, everything we could want was catered for. The pool area at night was a great place to relax and cool down and yes Chris the sunsets are spectacular.
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.

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.
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.
The villa was excellent and perfectly suited our needs, <30 min to universal and Disney parks and fully equipped to make our honeymoon as stress free as possible. Owners Chris and Chris were really helpful with all of the questions that we had and the property management team were also helpful.
Close to nearby Walmart and local shops/restaurants.
Thanks for a wonderful holiday
I've considered for some time how to best review our stay at Chris & Chris' villa. I didn't want to just roll out the tried and tested cliches.
Yes, the house is everything you want - well-equipped and comfortable. Light and airy. The area quiet, the lake tranquil. Sunsets are stunning. Conveniences are convenient. Close to the parks, but not too close. It's Orlando without being "Orlando". All of that is simply great.
Yet for us, the best aspect by far, was that the villa allowed us to just get on with our holiday. We didn't have to make allowances. It worked with us and gave us everything we needed. To use a cliche (sorry) it really is a home from home.
Thank you to Chris & Chris for allowing us to share your dream.
We loved staying at the villa, especially the sunsets. It is so well equipped. Thank you Chris and Chris for being so approachable with questions and the advice you gave.
