|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
We thought long and hard about what we wanted from our home from home. We have traveled to Florida for many years and decided to buy and let other people enjoy what we think is an ideal base for your Florida experience. Our villa consists of 4 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms. 2 of the bedrooms have direct access to the extended pool deck which offers a large heated pool and spa. The villa is situated 6 miles from Walt Disney World. We are 25 minutes from Universal and 35 minutes from Orlando International Airport. We are surrounded by over 150 golf courses in a 40 minute radius which cater for all levels of experience. The villa has everything you would expect from a luxury villa. Towels and bedding are all provided, along with maid service at an extra charge if required. The Villa boasts TV's in all the bedrooms with a games machine in our very own Disney themed bedroom. The 4 bedrooms are made up of 1 King 1 Queen and 2 twin rooms. There is a large living area and a games room
Amenities:: Glenbrook resort has its own communal facilites as well as our private pool and spa. You can meet other guests in the club house which has its own gym and games room if you so wish. There is tennis and beach volleyball for those who are energetic or you can relax round the larger pool area. Internet access is available as a complimentary addition at the internet cafe or if you have your own computer, you can access the internet using a wireless connection. I can confidently say once you have stayed in a villa, you will never stay in a hotel again!
Activities: : As well as the private swimming pool at the villa and the well known theme parks all within 30 minutes. You can sample 1 of the 150 golf courses the Orlando area has to offer. There is also a State park some 5 minutes north of the property and many, many lakes which you can just sit back and enjoy the scenery.
Area:: Being so close to Disney makes us a fantastic choice for all kinds of cuisine. Whatever you care to eat is here. I dare anyone to go home hungry! There are also some superb outlet shopping facilities which will have you buying extra suitcases with you endless bargains you buy.
We had a great time there! The home had everything we needed and some. It was safe for our small children and comfortable for us. If the pool heat had been working for our stay it would have been the perfect vacation, but unfortunately there was a problem with it. Which Darren promptly contacted the management company and had it looked at. Unfortunately it wasn't a quick fix so we weren't able to use the pool and spa. Otherwise this would have been a 5 star stay, absolutely without a question. It was totally unforeseen by the owner and just bad timing for us. But this is a beautiful, comfortable home with plenty of space and amenities for the entire family!
We had a very pleasant stay in this vacation home. It was very clean and neat upon our arrival, and is located in a safe community with nearby stores and restaurants. We enjoyed being far enough away from the Disney traffic congestion, while still being close enough to get to the attractions we wanted to see. If you enjoy soup and salad choices you can't beat the Sweet Tomato which is in the Target Shopping Center north on highway 27. The management and Darren both were quick to respond when our electric power went out. The problem was fixed in one hour!
We had a great time at your property. The house was spacious and clean and had everything we would need. The neighborhood is quiet and felt very safe. I am normally a light sleeper when I stay in a new place but I slept great here! Darren is awesome and very accommodating. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone that wants a wonderful house away from the noise and Disney traffic.
We Stayed in March 2013. The vacation villa was perfect for our needs. It was spacious, clean and the neighborhood felt safe. We had 3 adults and 2 children, but there was space for several more people without being crowded. The pool was large and there was enough deck space for the table and chairs with the safety gate up. We have been to other Orlando villas that do not have enough room for a table with the gate up. The hot tub is relaxing after a long day the the theme parks. The immediate neighborhood is safe and the extended neighborhood has a closely located grocery store and pharmacy (Walgreens and CVS) There are quite a few restaurants that will deliver to this area if you don't feel like cooking when you get back at night. The villa is located about 20-25 minutes from Disney and about 40 minutes to Legoland Florida.
This is the third time we have stayed at this villa, and we are already planning our 4th visit !!
We received our booking information on time as promised, which included hints and info for local shopping, local driving and useful numbers in case of medical needs etc.
On reaching the villa it was late evening yet the entrance was lit and inside the lights were on. After travelling from our home in the UK before reaching the villa some 13hrs later it was great to feel so welcome. It is these types of thoughtfulness that makes the difference and sets the holiday off to a great start.
The pool was great, we made use of the pool heating, and the spa was wonderful after a long day on our feet in the parks but was also wonderful when we chilled out at the villa and sunbathed.
We can recommend buying your food at the nearby Walmart and cooking in the villa some days as almost all utensils and crockery that you will need is in the villa.
There are lots of good restaurants along the nearby US Highway 192 but we can recommend the Ace Plus Chinese buffet, the Golden Corral, the Black Angus steakhouse and the Outback steakhouse to name a few.
Looking forward to visiting next year !!
Beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood complete with pool, spa and mini game room in the garage. Plenty of space and places to sleep for my family. The beds need a little updating but aside from that I would rent again in the future.
Golf: From your base at our villa, you have over 20 golf courses within a 20 mile radius. Orlando is the true home of golf, contact me for special discounts on courses.
