Overview

Hampton Lakes House Rental Photos and Description

Vacation Home, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

20% DISCOUNT OFF OUR RENTAL RATES FOR ANY DATES LEFT IN 2016!!

For the same rate as 2 similar quality hotel rooms you can have 5 bedrooms and your own private pool, outside bar, awesome game room, and so much more space and privacy. There’s NO resort tax, NO large bar bills, NO wi-fi charge, NO waiting in the lobby to go to the parks, NO searching for sun beds by the pool and NO extortionate car park charges. Once you have rented this vacation home you will NEVER stay in a hotel again!

Worried about renting from a stranger with Internet fraud so rife? Firstly VRBO have a $10,000 booking guarantee and secondly call me for a chat (remember to insert the right international dialling codes). I have been renting vacation homes in the Orlando area for 16 years and love to speak to our guests. Please remember I am in the UK as I have had numerous calls at 2am in the night!

We offer a total quality vacation service to all guests and an exceptionally responsive family service. Cleanliness is of paramount concern and we go the extra mile to make sure that we maintain the house to an exceptionally high standard. This can also be seen in the way we handle every booking in a very prompt and professional manner, ensuring that nothing is left to chance and everything is done to make your vacation run as simply and smoothly as possible. You are not a customer but our guest and all you and you fellow guests have to do is “ENJOY”. This is probably why a large number of our guests from all over the world return to stay with us again and again so Cayman House does book up.

For your convenience Cayman House has an electronic door lock, so you don’t have to run around on your arrival, often after a long flight looking for a management company to supply you with keys. We just allocate you a four-digit access code for the duration of your stay. For your peace of mind the house also is fully alarmed. To make sure that you get the best from the house during your stay we like to "meet and greet" all our guests and show you round and let you know how things work.

As you enter the house the formal dining room is to your left with seating for 6. Ahead is the spacious open plan kitchen and a separate elegant lounge with cathedral ceiling.

The kitchen has every possible modern stainless steel appliance, including large American fridge freezer, large cooker with built-in microwave and cooker hood, dishwasher, waste disposal, dual sinks, coffee maker, toaster, blender, all the cooking utensils, cutlery, plates, dishes and glassware you will ever need. For bookings of 4 nights or more we provide a COMPLIMENTARY starter pack of waste bin bags, washing up liquid, dish sponge and dishwasher tablets.

The lounge shares the large open plan with the kitchen and has a high cathedral ceiling with ceiling fan to enhance the already vast open space. There are 3 quality leather sofas in the lounge enough to seat 11. The entertainment system comprises of a 52” HD LCD flatscreen TV, Blu-ray DVD, Sony Theater Surround Sound and PlayStation 2, there’s plenty of relaxing to do. Spending a night in with a pizza and a movie with loud soundtrack is a must do.

We have installed high-speed wireless broadband for guests wishing to keep in touch or surf the Internet with their laptop, tablet or smart phone. Remember we already have FREE local and national phone calls.

Outside is what the Florida lifestyle is all about. This house enjoys a sunny South facing aspect getting the sun all day on a large corner lot. Because of the corner lot, the sundeck has been DOUBLED in size to 1600 sq feet and for total privacy is surrounded by a 6ft hedge and is fringed with tropical palm trees. As you will no doubt be spending a lot of your time out here we have thought of everything to enhance your vacation. Firstly there is a 400 sq feet full width lanai for shade under which are two tables seating 12. One overlooks the dry retention pond and orange groves with views of Disney at night where you can watch the nightly firework displays. If you get up early enough you can also see some awesome sun rises. Also early mornings will often see the taking off or landing of hot air balloons in the field behind Cayman House. Many balloons close up is a sight that will remain in your memory forever. Also under the lanai is an outdoor bar/summer kitchen complete with COMPLIMENTARY BBQ/grill and propane, outdoor fridge for cold beers (after all you couldn’t be expected to get out of the sun to get a beer) and bar stools. At the end of an exhausting day at the theme parks enjoy the Floridian al-fresco dining experience to its full. Finally the south facing pool is completed with an in-ground spill over spa to soothe those tired limbs at the end of a long day at the parks.

Cayman House has 5 luxurious, elegant bedrooms. There are 3 master en-suite bedrooms, 2 downstairs, and 1 upstairs. There are 2 further bedrooms upstairs that each has a set of bunk beds and a single bed. The 2 single bedrooms share the 4th bathroom so there’s no queuing when everyone needs to get ready.

Our first Master has a sumptuous King sized bed with pillow top mattress for a restful nights sleep, nightstands, dressing table, 40” wall mounted flat screen TV, large walk-in closet and a fabulous master en-suite bathroom with twin sinks, garden tub, separate walk-in shower and toilet. There are plenty of quality towels and 2 luxury bathrobes are provided.

Our second master also has a sumptuous King sized bed with pillow top mattress again for a restful nights sleep, nightstands, dressing table, 32” flat screen TV & DVD, wardrobe, a master en-suite bathroom with sink, walk-in shower and toilet. There are plenty of quality towels and a luxury bathrobe is provided.

Our third master has a sumptuous Queen sized bed again with pillow top mattress, nightstands, dressing table, 32” wall mounted flat screen TV, walk-in closet, a master en-suite bathroom with sink, bath with shower over and toilet. Once more there are plenty of quality towels and a luxury bathrobe is provided.

Our fourth & fifth bedrooms are both alike with a set of bunk beds plus a single bed with Tommy Hilfiger designer bedding, nightstands and plenty of drawer space. Both of these bedrooms share bathroom 4 with sink, bath with shower over, and toilet.

We provide COMPLIMENTARY soaps, liquid soaps, shampoos & conditioner in all our bathrooms.

If you want to use the Hampton Lakes facilities only a short walk away is the on-site (floodlit) tennis, basketball and volleyball courts and the full sized communal swimming pool. We provide complimentary tennis racquets. For the little ones in your party there are two, close by and safely sited, ‘tot-lots’ having swings and slides and are ideal for a little light relief.

Last but definitely not least and described by the Brighthouse engineer as “the best game room” he had ever been in, is our air-conditioned & fully equipped game room with full sized American pool table, competition foosball table, 50” wall mounted flat screen TV, hi-fi with iPod docking station and two sofas. This is not a “pool table in the garage makeover” as many are and is decked out as an American bar with wall décor and ambient lighting.

Cayman House is definitely in the right location only 12 minutes drive from the Disney main gate and minutes from several championship golf courses, a stone's throw away from Wal-Mart, Publix and many other shops, takeaways and restaurants.

For the little ones in your party, we supply complimentary crib, high chair, baby listening device, stair gate, single stroller and double stroller, to help make their stay, and yours a little easier. Please use these with our compliments but at your own risk.

We are sorry, but we don’t allow pets and Cayman House is strictly a NO SMOKING home although smoking is allowed on the sundeck.

Please note: our vacation home is inspected & fully licensed by the state of Florida authorities.

CAYMAN HOUSE, YOUR FUTURE MEMORIES THAT WILL LAST FOR EVER

About Neil Barlow

My wife Sue and I live in the leafy village of Wincham in Cheshire UK surrounded by fields and cows we have been married for thirty five years and have two grown up kids Nick who is married to Michelle and Samantha who is married to Mike. We also have four beautiful grandchildren.

My business for 26 years was in Telecommunications but have since taken early retirement, and Sue is a nursing assistant. The whole family adores Florida and the lifestyle and try to get out as often as we can. Our only problem is that Cayman House has become so popular we have had to stay in other homes at times!

Neil Barlow purchased this house in 2000

Why Neil Barlow chose Davenport

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. 12 minutes from Disney, views of the Disney fireworks at night from the sundeck, views of the hot air balloons taking off/landing in the morning......need we say more?

HUGE sundeck. By the time the pool has taken up most of the deck most houses have little room for loungers.

What makes this house unique

Cayman House is one of a handful of properties on Hampton Lakes where you can view the Disney fireworks at night and the hot air balloons in the morning.

Outdoor bar grill, great for evening BBQs but also good for early morning breakfast of eggs & bacon a pot of coffee and watch the sunrise & the hot air balloons.......perfect!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sorry for the delay in replying. The house was truly awesome and the vacation the best ever. The whole party loved everything about the house but especially the patio and pool area with bar. I would like also to mention Gary from your management company who was so helpful. A big thanks from all our party, can't wait to go again.

Make Cayman house your home for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a silly issue right at the start of the holiday where we arrived without having received notification of the access details. Although this was a problem at our end due to a dead email address, notification through the homeaway app messages that access details had been sent would have alerted us sooner.

It should be noted here though that we arrived mid evening and Neil, living in the UK was straight on the phone, late at night, and helped us to resolve this.

Once inside the villa we were happy that all the reviews and comments on the website summed up our own feelings. The villa is packed with everything you need to be comfortable for a holiday.

The games room, the washing machine and dryer, the kitchen and the pool area were all excellent. Indeed the pool area became our home for the two weeks enjoying seeing hot air balloons close up each morning, VERY close one morning as they landed one balloon right behind the villa, a truly awesome sight. And every evening starting from 8:45pm the fireworks at Hollywood studios, then Epcot and Magic Kingdom are a lovely long distance view.

I've not seen it mentioned much previously but it should probably be mentioned that during the summer it rains every day at about 3pm, and with the rain, thunder and lightning sometimes comes the local wildlife. Within the pool area we had dragonflies, lizards, beetles and other minibeast and an invasion through the netting of a racoon. Again, our message to Neil was quickly reacted to and the maintenance company repaired the netting in good time. I wouldn't say to worry about the minibeast safari because it isn't villa specific. It's a Florida thing.

We had a marvellous holiday and the villa is a great part of that. While you will spend large amounts of time and money on attraction and park tickets, you want the place you call home for two weeks to be comfortable, secure and welcoming. Cayman house does this easily. It provides excellent value for money. It also provides a lovely owner with exceptional care for your holiday enjoyment. Thank you Neil.

Owner's Response: Chris thanks so much for taking the time to post a review and so glad to hear you had a great time. Also glad that the hot air balloons landed in the field behind the house, close up they are an amazing sight especially in numbers. Seeing the Disney fireworks from the deck at night is also a memory that will last, who needs to go to Disney! Also glad that you saw some of the Florida wildlife that we don't see in the UK. Finally thanks for your thanks. We do try and go the extra mile and your appreciation of that is appreciated. Hope to see you on your next visit to The Sunshine State. Regards, Neil.

Rooms are spacious, clean, and well kept.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you enter the house you can see that the owners take pride in their home. Bedrooms, living area, kitchen configuration worked well for the 10 of us. Game room is a great play room for the kids and at times doubled as a man cave. Pool just the right size with plenty of lounging area around the lanai. The outdoor area is also well kept and the neighbors are quiet.

Plenty of restaurants, Publix, Walmart, CVS and other necessities in close proximity. Attractions are easy to get to and not too far away.

Recommend this for any family looking for a place that accommodates 10..a great vacation getaway with all the comforts of home.

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

As two families of 4 (children are 18,14,11 and 9) this was a perfect choice - for accommodation and location. Our pre-departure queries were answered promptly by Neil and everything went smoothly for arrival - you're sent an entry code and alarm code and directions before you travel. Villa was easy to find, and everything was in place when we arrived. 5 bedrooms worked perfectly for us - 2 super-large doubles, one large double bed and then two identical rooms for the children both with bunk beds and a single. Play room was fun, and well equipped although we didn't get to spend much time in it as there is so much to do in Orlando. You can read the villa details about the equipment provided, but the best thing was the HUGE washing machine and tumble dryer which made washing a joy (honestly never felt that way before!). The pool and deck area were the largest we have seen in Orlando, and having half of it covered meant we always had shade from the Florida sunshine. Air con worked well. It's 20 mins to the Disney parks and probably 30 to the International Drive area, unless you hit traffic on the I4, so it's an idea location. Walmart was 5 mins down the road and had everything you could wish for (even a liquor store!). We would happily recommend this villa, and were sad to leave.

Owner's Response: Nadine, firstly thank you for looking after my home and for giving us a 5 star review. I am so glad that the house was part of your vacation and will provide many memories. I have to say you made me laugh because all the reviews we get are usually about our huge deck, summer kitchen, game room, the cleanliness of the house or the friendliness of our local management team but you ....... THE WASHING MACHINE & TUMBLE DRYER! That said I am glad you appreciated them as they are new and we went for the "super" model. I really hope we will see you again on your next visit. Best regards, Neil.

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

The Cayman House was everything i read it would be in the description. We had a family of 9 staying in the house and there was plenty of room for everyone. The best part, especially the kids, was the private pool! Also, the patio was oversized and extremely spacious with the added bonus of privacy as they had plants up so that the lanai was completely private. The rooms were big and the house was clean and contained all the items we needed to cook in, and we did often because taking 9 people out to dinner would become costly. We utilized the kitchen and grill daily and it all worked perfect. We did have to call the maintenance number listed once as we had a clogged drain in a shower and they responded immediately and had the it cleared about 15 minutes later with no hassle at all.

We also visited Disney while staying and the location was perfect for going to and from the parks throughout the day as it was only a few exits down. Overall the Cayman House made our Epic Florida Family Vacation awesome and I would absolutely book again if we go to Orlando. Thanks for letting us stay!!

Owner's Response: Stephanie, thanks so much for posting a review and especially a 5 star review. So glad you loved the house. The photo shoot is fairly recent so depicts what you will see on arrival. Glad also that you made use of the complimentary grill in our outdoor summer kitchen. Al fresco dining by the pool just has to be done in the balmy evenings of Florida. I hope we will see you again on your next visit. Regards Neil.

Awesome holiday!!! July 2016

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place! Lots of room for our family of nine - adults had a bedroom of their own and grandkids shared. The pool was a highlight at the end of very hot days, even enjoyed a swim early morning. Kitchen was well set up for making meals. We packed a lunch for our days in Disneyworld. The drive into Disney was not an issue we even did a night drive to the Park. We would love to stay at this home if we go down again. Much more relaxing than a hotel stay. Definitely recommend this lovely home.

Thank you so much Neil.

Owner's Response: George, Ann, & party firstly I would just like to say thanks for looking after my house and thank you too for the 5 star review. Hearing that we were part of a memorably vacation makes it all worth while. You are so right about hotel v vacation home. In my opinion, and I know I am a bit biased, any party more than 2-4 a vacation home is definitely a better option. Look forward to assisting you next time. Best regards, Neil.

Spectacular!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Orlando on business. As a group of individuals this house was perfect, plenty of space, bedrooms and bathrooms. For the down time moments, the pool and patio area was awesome. plenty of chairs and tables for working offsite and for hanging out. The game room was a definite added bonus as well. All of us said that this would be a great place to bring your family or a couple of families, so roomy! All areas were clean and well stocked to meet our needs. Will definitely rebook the next time we are in the Orlando area on business or pleasure!

I hope we will see you again on your next visit. Regards, Neil.
