Guestbook comments from the owner

A Great 2nd Holiday at the villa totally relaxing with everything you could need to contribute to a super holiday.

The good weather also was a welcome change from the weather back home.

Our daughter and son in law were also impressed and said it made a lovely change of pace from Orlando, it was great to see the real Florida.

If you are a tennis player. There are lovely courts in veteran's Park, Hicks rd and early morning there are always a group who welcome you to join in.

Great vacation rental

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 3 weeks. It is a very nice house and very comfortable. Very clean!! The only this is the solar heaters on the pool did not work well so we could not use the pool. We would be happy to stay here again in the future.

Great time

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Hudson, villa had everything we could need. Weather wasn't the warmest to use the pool when we arrived but got to use it after a couple weeks . Very nice quiet neighborhood, centrally located to lots of flea markets and stores. Winn Dixie was about 1/2 mile away. If we get the chance to go to central Florida again will call Bill and Ethel again to use their villa.

A great place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

Our third stay at this excellent holiday accommodation in Florida. The property has all you could want to facilitate a comfortable stay.

I feel we have a good rapport with the owners, who keep the house to a high standard and who are very obliging over arrival and departure dates.

My daughter and her family stayed with us for a few days in 2014, whilst visiting Disney World and have subsequently booked a holiday in 2016, here.

We love the beach at Pine Island and also Hudson when we want to stay closer to the villa.

My husband plays tennis and can get a game on a regular basis at Veteran's Park in Hicks Road at no cost.

I have rated it with 4 stars because when we stay, in February, the pool is a little too cold to use.

That we have had three holidays at this villa, I think says it al.

Second visit

  • 5 of 5

Once again we had another fantastic holiday in the villa. It was clean, well equiped and maintained with everything you could need. We spent some time around the pool on the loungers which was relaxing. Pine Island is a lovely beach well worth a visit,especially when the dolphins

come to play. Homosassa Springs is also good to go to with manatee feeding to watch. We took kayaks out and went down the river at Weechi Wachi, a very enjyable time.

A truly excellent holiday property

  • 5 of 5

The house is well appointed, maintaned to the highest standards and its location is excellent allowing ease of travel in any direction to the beaches and attractions along the Gulf coast and inland to major cities such as Tampa and St Petersburg. Access to the interstates is within easy reach allowing travel further into Florida and even the East coast is within 3 hours drive. The facilities are superb with everything that a familiy could wish for and more,combined with a welcoming atmosphere and homely feel. The pool area is superb with the benefit of being next to a conservation woodland area and the covered area allow guests to be outside late into the evening. The owners provided excellent service and even answered a question regarding how we use one of the facilities by email for us whilst we were in the villa. Every detail has been thought through with comprehensive instructions about use of appliances as well as very helpful places to visit brochures in the villa to which we added some we also found.The best local restaurant we found was the Olive Garden just off 19 south from 52 which provides excellent cuisine and service, and we highly recommend Tarpon Springs as a place to visit to experience a different feel of Florida. Dade City for antiques is superb. We will be regular visitors to Florida as our son and his wife live there and will be using the villa again and we also intend to recommend it to our friends and family. With regards to the general facilities we were most impressed that the owners provide extensive and high quality furnishings and fittings such as extensive numbers of towels - plates - cutlery and cooking equipment. In fact we wanted for nothing and having had many holidays all over the world in holiday homes we can honestly say that this villa is by far the best accommodation we have ever used. We cannot find a single negative thing to say about the villa and the owners who from the very start of our enquiry through to us arriving provided exceptional communication regarding the villa. At all times they have been most helpful and accommodating, even to the point where we had a late flight change which meant we would arrive a few hours earlier and which they accommodated without hesitation. We cant wait to get back to Florida and stay at the villa again.
