About Ann Jean

Hello, our names are Ann & Reggie Jean.

We had this property built in 2001 and immediatly used it as a rental unit. We then sold it to good friends of ours from the UK. They treated the villa like one of their children, we stayed friends with them over the years and actually took on managing the home as we lived locally. In 2012 they were ready to sell the house due to family commitments. Reggie and I seized the opportunity to purchase it back from them in May 2012.

Since that time we have done some updating, all of the interior has been repainted, new furniture has been purchased, carpets redone, and new linens and electronics.

Ann Jean purchased this villa in 2012

What makes this villa unique

The benefits of this home over others in the area are that we live locally and care for the villa personally. The childrens rooms are themed in a very child friendly way. The furnishings are to standard of what we would want for ourselves.

Reggie has a vast knowledge of the behind the scenes Disney information. The children love to be told how to score more points than mom or dad on the Buzz LightYear ride!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was just as described and right on top of Disney, easy to find and close to restaurants and shops. Mary and Larry have been so helpful, with providing information in the build up to going, they responded to any questioned e mailed within 24 hours. Will definately return and would recommend to everyone. Went with 3 small kids 3 1/2, 21 months and 4 months. Childrens 101 dalmatians bedroom was lovely and very popular. If you are reading this book it you wont be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Thank you Amanda, Roy & family, we are delighted you enjoyed your first family visit to Florida and do appreciate your comments. You will more than welcome to return on any of your future visits to Disney with the little ones. It was also nice of you to leave your holiday photographs for our villa albumn, it is lovely to be able to put faces to names of our guests.

We will always try to make all of our guests stay a memorable one and want to return to our villa.

Kindest regards,

Family Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Dalmatian Villa proved to be our ideal family getaway. The house proved to be an ideal location for "Uber Grandpa" to take the 10 - 20 minute trips to and from all the Disney locations. Restaurants and grocery stores were located conveniently within a mile from the house.

We loved the house and all of the amenities. The well-maintained house provided everything you need to feel right at home. Extra sheets, towels and beach towels were a plus.The recently remodeled kitchen provided all the pots and pans, dishes, glasses and utensils you needed for your cooking pleasures. The Dalmatian and Toy Story bedrooms were well received by our grandchildren and the second available master suite was much appreciated by our children and their spouses. The family room was greatly used as the family gathered to watch TV or play family games. The heated swimming pool was enjoyed by all!

The owners, Ann and Reggie, were readily available if we needed anything. We liked the house so much, that we rented again for next year! Thank you both for such an enjoyable stay!

This house has everything!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week at Dalmatian Villa. We are two families with a total of four kids, aged 4-7. The kids adored the pool and spent entire days in there. The pool toys were much appreciated.

The beds were all comfortable and the decor of the rooms was very fun. The house was incredibly clean and well-stocked. Everything is here, from freezer packs to board games, strollers to a blender. The kitchen was much better equipped than the usual rentals.

Towels were plentiful and having a washer and dryer available was very helpful.

Many thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us.

This made our trip amazing! The owner is very kind and easily reached. The home itself was clean,well stocked and fabulous. My little girl fell in love with the dalmatian room. The pool was well cared for and heated. It was our children's first trip to Disney and they loved having such a nice rental to come back to every night. Super close to the parks as well. It is a great value and we will definetly return!
