About Linda and Mike Harris

My husband and I spend 2-3 months a year here at least. We love the area. We love all of the theme parks. Bush Gardens is a special treat that is often over-looked by those visiting Orlando, but it is only about an hour from the villa and well worth the visit, especially if you have older children that enjoy thrill rides. If you go be sure to try the Zambia Smokehouse and the pretzels at the Twisted Tails (right next to Falcons Fury)

We also love to golf. We live on a course at home and surprisingly we spend little time golfing here because there is so much to do. Our favorite close course is Kings Ridge. There many other nice courses though in the area.

The fishing is fabulous and we love it, but biking is our true love here. Our favorite is the West Orange trail.

Linda and Mike Harris purchased this villa in 2005

Why Linda and Mike Harris chose Clermont Area

We chose the Clermont area because it is a quiet, rural area away from the commercial development along 192, yet still within 20 minutes driving distance of the Disney gates.

We were also looking for a pool that faced southeast, so that we got the warming sun in the morning, but were out of the direct sun on hot, summer afternoons.

As I mentioned, we stay here for at least 2 months a year and we enjoy a comfortable environment. You will notice things like upgraded, very comfy sheets, pillows and beds in the bedrooms to most spices and many cooking utensils you don't normally find in the kitchen.

Our property manager is right around the corner if you need anything and we are almost always just a phone call away.

What makes this villa unique

I love our south facing pool and large lanai. It becomes my office when I am here. Speaking of office, we have excellent wifi.

We recently added almost $9000 in landscaping and landscape lighting. With that addition and the spa and pool lights, the lanai becomes a beautiful oasis you and your family can enjoy after a long day of vacationing in Central Florida.

We want you to enjoy our home as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

June 2010 Our trip was wonderful and your property is great! All was as expected. The welcome kit came in VERY handy as we arrived at the house at approximately 2:30 am - shopping was out of the question we were all too tired. The pool was the best for the grandchildren - both of whom learned to swim while in Florida!!! Thank you for fitting us in after our original reservation ran into issue. I would never be able to refer to this situation as an error - perhaps rather a blessing that we stayed at your home. We will highly recommend your property to family and friends.

Guestbook Comment

We stayed in this wonderful villa early this year and it was one of our best vacation experiences! It was impeccably clean and beautifully furnished. The pool was the perfect temperature as was the adjoining spa. The big screen TV was great for movies and we really enjoyed the pool table and game room. We would love to stay in this villa again for our next vacation!

Thank you,

Karen, Gene and Diane

Exceptional Value!

  • 5 of 5

We had not stayed in this area of the "Disney Vacation Area" before. The commute in and out of the community is very easy and it's proximity to a brand new Publix (grocery store) makes this a perfect location for a family or anyone. Very quiet area and we felt completely private and secure when we where at this home! Lots of big grassy park areas and a nice children's playground in easy walking distance.

We went multiple times to Disney properties during our stay and it was such an easy commute and near a new area with all of the "not tourist price" services, gas, groceries, restaurants etc.

The game room is a fun and happy place while not over done good for children or adults who like to play! Pool was above our expectations and we did pay for the hot tub and enjoyed it late in to the evenings!

The owners have made staying at their home a breeze. We had our answers to all questions before asked and the cleanliness when we arrived was a huge treat. They had everything that we could want supplied in the house.

We will plan on looking to book this again!

Exceptional Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with VRBO and it was a fantastic one. The owners, Linda and Mike, certainly pay attention to detail with the features of this beautiful home. The home was immaculate, fully stocked, comfortable and in a great location. The neighborhood is very quiet. We were mainly visiting for a local sporting event but we did venture off to Disney a couple times. We also went to the Amway Center in Orlando a couple times for basketball games. Very easy to get to both from this area. I highly recommend this rental to anyone considering this lovely home. Thank you, Linda and Mike!

Great family place!

  • 4 of 5

We had enough room for everyone so blending the two generations was not a problem. This property was well stocked with durable upscale furnishings, including a great game room. The best property resource was Marion, who helped sort out a Spa/Pool problem. She responded quickly and efficiently so we didn't have as much downtime as we could have! Thanks, Linda and Mike for thinking of everything we needed for a great vacation!

From Orange Tree to all major attractions is a 15 to 30-minute drive, with local supermarket and amenities no more than 5 minutes away.

As well as visiting the theme parks, why not experience some of Florida's other attractions and visit the Sunshine State's superb golden beaches and stunning coastlines. You can reach the West Coast in about 90 minutes.

Close by Orange Tree, a visit to Lake Louisa offers fishing, boating or maybe just a lazy Sunday picnic and leisurely stroll. Jaycee Beach with its fishing pier is just a short drive away.

Golf anyone? Take your pick from the many superb golf courses! Whatever your level - there is something for everyone. Play a round at Orange Lake Golf and Country Club on a course built by Arnold Palmer; it's just a 10-minute drive or Legends Golf and Country Club just a short drive north on the US 27.

There are also many festivals in Clermont and the surrounding cities. Winter Garden is always a fun place to visit. We bike there often. They have a number of good restaurants right on the bike trail. Our favorites are the pizza place and Urban Grill. You can start a bide ride at Lake Minneola for about a 26 mile round trip or Kilarny for about a 12 mile trip to Winter Garden.

Please do not hesitate to call if you have any other questions about the area. My husband and I spend 2-3 months there a year and we love the area.
