Beautiful villa in a picturesque location
We had a wonderful time at the villa. It is large and spacious, and even has a dock extending out on to the lake which is a lovely place to sit in the mornings. The pool area is great, and there’s a large BBQ and outdoor seating too. Loved relaxing in the hot tub with a book in the afternoon! It’s a beautiful area to cycle around or go for a run around the estate or the neighbouring one, and there were bikes for us to use at the villa. It is a short drive to Disney and Universal theme parks, and close by to shopping areas. There is a publix and pharmacy about 3 minutes drive away which is handy too. Would definitely recommend staying here.
I booked the house for two weeks over Christmas break. It was spacious and equipped with everything we needed. I nearly cried when we walked in and saw a Christmas tree. We always need lots of bathrooms to get everyone out in the morning. Four full bathrooms really helped.
The neighborhood is small and quiet. Backyard is nicely landscaped for privacy. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub.
The owner and Royce were very responsive and helpful. Would definitely book this one again.
Property is in a great position for parks shops etc also its outlook from the back of is fantastic
Overall the property is adequate but ready for some tlc...i say this with previous experience after multiple stays on cypress point and emerald isle were the standards of general decor etc where much higher...and we payed quite a bit less
Royce the property manager not really required apart from reporting an issue with bbq on arrival (mentoned in review to owner) and he sorted tv problem very efficiently
Hi Derek, Thanks for your review and so glad so enjoyed your stay and the location and views from the villa. I appreciate the property is not brand new but we do regular upgrading and inspections ourselves to keep everything up to standard. I will pass your comments on to our agent to see if there are any specific areas that need attention. It is a balancing act when booking a villa whether to take a brand new one which can be quite a distance from any facilities and parks and still has builders on site to taking one which has a mature setting, close to the parks, shops and restaurants, nice views, larger pool and more space round it! Most of our guests (and many are repeat bookings) are delighted with their stay and the price although with the current strength of the dollar it does unfortunately become more expensive for UK guests. We would however be delighted to welcome you back anytime.
Great villa amazing location
Really nice affordable villa close to Disney. It was great to pass a supermarket on our way back from parks etc that you could pop in to without any detour. Would definitely reccommmend this villa and if we come back to Florida I would look to rent this villa again. Can't fault it.
Perfect home from home!
We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful, homely villa. There was everything we needed here for a peefect holiday. The pool was a great size. Great location not far from parks, shops and malls, and the property manager was always on hand to help whenever needed. Can't wait to come back again!
Lovely house, good location, owners really helpful
We had to book this property after being let down and disgustingly treated by Simon Greenwood, another Owner's Direct supplier. Having to re-book at very short notice the owner Lorraine was easy to contact and really helpful. The property was exactly as described, set in a quiet estate, located a short and easy drive from Disney. It backed onto a small lake which gave it a very tranquil feel. The lake even had it's own resident alligator, please do not feed it!
We spent a lot of time in the pool and also sunbathing in the late afternoons and really enjoyed our time there. We had to contact Royce the maintenance manager once or twice and he was also easy to contact, friendly and helpful.
In summary we loved the house and would go back again.
Pinewood Estate is located in an 'Old World' Florida setting just south of Orlando. Only 30 minutes from the international airport and 45 minutes from Sanford it is easily reached, being 5 minutes from I4. Beautiful peaceful lakeside views from the garden and private dock with all the local wildlife that Florida offers in it's natural setting. All this yet a large Publix supermarket a couple of minutes down the road along with food outlets, restaurants and a large 'anytime fitness' gym open 24 hours to keep off the pounds! The Disney main gate can be reached in 10 minutes, Sea World in 20 minutes and Universal Orlando is just 30 minutes. Busch Gardens is also less than an hour away along with the Gulf coast and it's beaches. The space centre at Cape Canaveral is also reached in less than an hour using the quiet toll road which opens up the Atlantic coast beaches also. Shoppers are also well catered for with the wide variety of branded stores with quality label clothing at bargain prices at Premium Outlets which is only 15 minutes away. The Florida Mall is also reached within 30 minutes for a wide selection of department stores. There are countless other attractions within a few minutes drive including many championship golf courses, flight museums, boating round everglades and many other wildlife trips. All in all the perfect spot to spend your vacation, so close to everywhere you want to be, but an oasis of calm at the end of the day lying in the spa watching the sun go down over the lake!
