About David and Amanda Post

We are U.K. owners who love to vacation at the best villa that you could hope for - and it's ours! David worked for a Media information service for the Marine industry and Mandy worked as a teacher. We have two grown up children – our daughter Charlotte is married to Dave and they have a gorgeous son, Arthur who is now four years old, and a beautiful daughter Wynn Rosina, who is 3 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 Haines City

Owning our own house in Florida was a long held dream and now you are about to experience a piece of that dream. 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".

What makes this villa unique

Brilliant plot - one of the best! Not side to side or back to back. Well stocked with quality goods - no skimping here!! Owners visit frequently so constantly updated. Extended pool deck with new landscaping providing even more outdoor space and privacy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so very much for letting us share your beautiful Florida villa. We all enjoyed our time here and loved the house. You have it decorated so nicey and after a busy week visiting the Disney parks it was so nice to come back and relax in the pool. Would love to come back and stay again.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Read lots of reviews before we decided on this house! So glad people were helpful and honest! It is just perfect! We had 2 families with 5 kids ranging from 4-9 years old. Great space in all the rooms- and the younger ones loved the Mickey/Minnie room! We did not do Magic Kingdom, but did Legoland ( thats why we chose this location) - it is only 20 minutes to Legoland. We also did a day at Disney Springs which again was only a 25 minute drive. It is close to shopping (Super Walmart- 2 min.) and even a Target with a few other good stores!

The owners have thought of everything- they have everything you can think of for the kitchen (including a cooler you can take on a day trip, and Tupperware for leftovers). They even have 6 raincoat ponchos (which came in handy on our trip to Dunedin to see the Toronto Blue Jays). Kids loved the games room and using the Wii to play tennis, baseball, bowling etc. We also loves the grass space in the middle of all the houses that the kids played football and baseball and even made friends with other kids staying in the surrounding houses. We were worried about the small size of the pool at first, but the kids just adapted and made the most of it! The hot tub was fantastic- very hot- which isn't always the case with a rental house!

Thank you so much for sharing your house with us! We LOVED it!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for those kind words. we know any guest that comes to our home always loves it. It is important to us that guests have that bit of luxury on their vacation. Luckily our pool is a good size for a private villa pool and we added the extra deck extension to create even more space. So pleased the children loved it - our grandchildren love it too!

Best Kept Secret!

  • 5 of 5

Our family visits Florida every year. This was the first time we had our trip over the Christmas break and with friends. The home was impeccable and very spacious. The pool was refreshing and the spa was enjoyed every evening after walking all day at the Disney and Universal parks. The extended pool deck was a nice addition as it allowed us to project movies on the wall with a projector for both our families to watch.

We would highly recommend this home to anyone and would like to come back again real soon.

Thank you Amanda and David for sharing your secret getaway with our families.

Cheers.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. The extended deck was added in November which allows more sun for longer, whilst still retaining a shady lanaii. It gives plenty of room to spread out around the pool. We try to make sure that our guests holiday is just wonderful in every way. We look forward to your next visit.

By Far The Best

  • 5 of 5

We are a family from Bedfordshire and this was our third holiday rental in the area and it was by far the best.

The property has an amazing amount of space and is also very well laid out. The cleanliness was exceptional and the house is equipped with everything you could possibly need.

We loved the pool area, where we ate breakfast every morning and several evening meals.

An added bonus was the fishing lake. At least two of the family were there every morning with their rods!

Dealing with Amanda and David was an absolute pleasure both before and after the holiday.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to either a small group ( like ourselves ) or much larger group ( i.e 2 or 3 families )

As mentioned in previous reviews the photo's do not do this property justice. You need to see it for yourself!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We want our guests to have a great time and feel a little bit of luxury and as we are able to visit ourselves several times a year we can replace things and add things all the time! We loved your fishing photo and thank you for adding rods to the games room. We hope we will see you again soon.

A wonderful Family Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family vacation with adult kids and grandkids. 7 adults and 3 kids had plenty of space with large comfortable rooms and private bathrooms. The pool was warm and the spa was hot! We all used them daily. Everything we could need was there except food and clothes. We had a baby with us, and everything we could have needed was there for him too, including a gate for the stairway, a high chair and a crib. The game room was a hit, and having a washer a dryer was great. We traveled to both the east and west coasts of Florida within less than two hours in either direction, making the beaches accessible. Disney was easy to get to. Lots of other things to keep us busy too. Thanks, David and Amanda! We had a wonderful time and it was so reasonably priced, very affordable for everyone in our family. We would do it again . The Wesolowskis

Owner's Response: Thank you Kate for your kind words. we have two grandchildren so we know how important a comfortable baby is! Having the Den in addition to the great room does mean a family can spread out and not feel on top of each other - great especially if it's a multi generation trip! We look forward to you visiting again. thanks Amanda
