Beautiful and relaxing vacation villa!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough positive things about our stay at the Be Our Guest Villa. We recently traveled to Florida for a family Disney vacation and we were so impressed with the accommodations at Be Our Guest! I have three children, they absolutely loved the themed bedrooms and game room. The owners had everything needed for children including, high chairs, toys, gaming system, board games, movies, books, pool toys, the list goes on! The kitchen was fully stocked with all you would need with a wonderful grocery store nearby. As well as recommendations for ordering out. Delicious. The gated community really made us feel safe as well as the safety features added in the house. Such a quiet, friendly neighborhood and a very short drive to all the major hot spots such as Disney, Universal, Orlando, and many more! Everything was so clean and updated, very well taken care of. We will definitely be back, it was a relaxing, comfortable, and memorable vacation. We love Be Our Guest!!

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Great home for a family vacation. Property had everything we needed. They even have strollers, pack 'n plays, high chairs, you name it. These kind, attentive owners have really thought of everything to make your stay as relaxed as possible. Very clean and well kept. We brought our kiddos and they had a great time with the heated pool and short trek to WDW parks. We highly recommend this property.

Fantastic to be you guest.....

  • 5 of 5

Wow, where do I start.......from my first contact with Lorrie inquiring about availability to contact during my stay she was fantastic.

I stayed at Lorrie's Be Our Guest Villa for 10 nights (25 June – 5 July 2017) with my husband (quick surprise trip out......but that’s another story) and my 14-year-old daughter. From the minute you pull up on the drive way and open the door, you certainly get that home from home feeling. The villa is spotless, very spacious and has everything you could possibly need. From the welcome ‘fluffy’ socks to fully stocked kitchen cupboards, not to mention the lovely welcome gifts. We spent a lot of time in the villa, having lazy pool days and spent some time in the games room where air hockey did get quite competitive between my husband and daughter. As we didn’t do the parks it was lovely to spend time in the villa chilling out. Berry Town Centre is about a 5-min car journey, where you will find Publix, CVS, there is also IHOP and Applebee’s, along with pizzeria, Chinese, 2 pubs (Bars), 7 minutes the other way you will find Walmart. The villa is ideally situated to get onto the I4 and 192

Back to the Villa, it has everything you could need. There are plenty of pool toys, games, DVD’s etc for everyone. Even though there was only 3 of us in the villa the villa is very spacious and I feel that if it was full you would still have space for yourself. There is also a BBQ that is out in the pool area which is great if you like to dine al fresco.

I can honestly say hand on heart that we will have no hesitation in recommending this villa to friends/family and should it be available when we next head over I will certainly be contacting Lorrie. My heartfelt thanks to Lorrie for opening her beautiful home and her excellent communication during our trip……. which we thoroughly enjoyed. (Also, thanks for all your patience Lorrie). I hope to stay in your beautiful villa again someday.

Property very clean, well presented, great location, safe gated community and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 2 week stay at "Be Our Guest" villa in Davenport. must say we have had an amazing time

I have 2 sons and they have loved staying here, some days they didn't want to leave the villa . They were more than happy to play in the pool, use the play station that the villa provides or play in the fully equipped games room, in the garage. There is a vast collection of CD's and Dad's to use too.

The villa was very comfortable, beautifully designed and very close to parks and amenities.

If you are a Disney fan this is the place to stay, there is a toy story designed bedroom with 3d bedding, pictures of Micky and Minnie hanging on the walls in various place. Even the toaster provides a Micky pic on your toast (my son are toast everyday because of this). It's these type of little extra touches that make your stay here extra special.

Must thank Lorrie Ann and her family for allowing us to stay at their beautiful home. Booking was very easy and Lorrie was very helpful. Would definitely recommend this villa and would certainly stay here again in the future.

Owner's Response: Hi Gary, One of my favorite things in our villa is the Mickey Toaster. My kids love to make toast and see Mickey on their toast. We do try to keep the house fun for all ages. Thank you for all the kind words and we hope to see you back soon. Thank you, Lorrie Ann

"A Whole New World ...."

  • 5 of 5

Whether you spend the day at the parks, shopping, dining, or enjoying one of the many attractions Orlando has to offer, it's a whole new world when you enter the door of this luxurious Disney home. My two children, husband, and I spread out and enjoyed the amenities and space this wonderful home offers. After a busy day, the kids enjoyed swimming in the beautiful pool, and we often ate breakfast and snacks poolside under the covered lanai. For the kids fun, there are several floats and noodles on hand, and the play park is just a short walk from the house.

We found the drive to the parks to be relatively quick and easy. Also, close to this quiet neighborhood is a Super Target, WalMart, pharmacy, and chain restaurants as well as more unique family owned eateries. We liked the homemade ice cream at Squeezed. Very nearby is Sunday's, a British restaurant/pub with great fish and chips. Mia's Pizza offers a great thin crust pizza as well as an awesome chef salad. Both establishments offer indoor/outdoor seating. The surrounding area offers something for everyone to enjoy. There is mini golf, hair and nail salons, and as my kids noticed, an abundance of gift shops. We drove the hour and a half to Daytona one morning and toured the speedway and easily drove to the beach and parked. The kids spent 2 hours enjoying the surf and sand.

This listing description was accurate in all of its details. The home was very clean and well maintained with excellent customer service and accommodations provided by the owner and manager. I would book again and definitely recommend others to look no further and just reserve this property for your next travel stay. We made great memories here to be treasured forever.

Many heart felt thanks to the owner and manager!

Fantastic Orlando Villa

  • 5 of 5

An exceptionally clean and very well appointed villa. Very close to all local amenities and 20 minutes from Disney parks. A very safe and quiet gated community. The owners go over and above to provide exceptional service to people who stay at their home, including a complimentary bottle of wine on arrival. All fixtures and fittings are as shown in the photographs. We had a fantastic stay at this villa and would not hesitate to stay again when we return to Orlando.
