We have two grown up children – our daughter Charlotte is married to Dave and they have a gorgeous son, Arthur who is now five years old, and a beautiful grand-daughter Wynn Rosina, who is 4 years old . Our son Matthew who lives with his partner also live in Aylesbury. We all love going on vacation to Florida and visit our home frequently.

Why David and Amanda Post chose Sud Department

We have spent two years living and working in Miami so were able to visit the villa frequently resulting in the house being equipped to the high level we expect ourselves. Consequently our home is well stocked with China, Kitchen electricals and all the other kitchen equipment you may need. One of our aims is to make your vacation a real luxury holiday so we make sure the linens are quality and our beds comfortable. This is not just a vacation home - it's a Home from Home. One guest described it as "Florida's best kept secret".

                                                            Michele W.

                                                            Wonderful home with everything you could want! The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need to be able to cook a nice meal. The pool and hot tub were great! The hot tub was actually hot, not just lukewarm. Very appreciated! Bedrooms were well appointed and beds were comfortable. The house has enough room for everyone to have space to themselves if needed/wanted. You can tell the owners care about their guests having a good experience. We would love to be able to spend another vacation here!

                                                            Beautiful home!

                                                            Chris W.

                                                            We had a wonderful week in this villa! It had all the amenities you could ask for. The outdoor space is wonderful and the pool was exceptional.

                                                            Pictures are worth 1000 words!

                                                            Charlene G.Belair

                                                            This place is amazing! Our family has stayed at a few different places in this gated comunity and this home was great. This home is very well kept and clean. It was definitely equipped to host 2 families. So many extras, they certainly thought of everything. We spent every minute we could outside in the pool or out on the lani from sunrise to well beyond sunset. The beds were very cozy. All the rooms were beautifully decorated with attention to details. We wouldn't hesitate to book here again.

                                                            Thank you for having our family stay in your home, Amanda and David. It certainly was a wonderful vacation.

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            Thank you Charlene for your kind words - we love our villa and so want it to be amazing, including having comfy beds and those extra little touches. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and that you had a great time. Having a second room (Den) is certainly great when you have 2 families so that you can spread out and the extended pool deck means there is plenty of room to spend time outside together too. We put a 5th bathroom in because we know that when it comes time to go out no-one has to queue! We keep our villa to a high standard because that's what we like when we spend our 2 or 3 trips a year at our home. We want our guests to have a great vacation with all those little extra touches. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

                                                            Clean, Quiet Retreat

                                                            Dick H.

                                                            Excellent place to go and unwind after a Day at Disney. Pool and Jucuzzi were set perfect and our family could swim and hang out there in December!! Beds are comfortable, kitchen well equipped for any meal you might want to make. The hosts made themselves avalaible should we need anything, which we did not. Lovely décor , we had a fantastic time.

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            Thank you Dick for your lovely review - we always want our guests to have a great time. Being on a corner plot overlooking open space allows for that sense of space and privacy by the pool. We are frequent visitors to our Florida home and so can keep things fresh and up to date. We like our guests to have a good selection of equipment in the kitchen if they do wish to cook and above all feel comfortable and 'at home'.

                                                            Disney vacation done right! Great Stay!

                                                            I loved the family friendly feel of the house. They even included ponchos for the family to use when we visited the parks.

                                                            Everything was in great condition and the beds were so comfortable.
