About Christine & James

We are a small, family-run business offering a collection of luxury yet affordable holiday/vacation rental villas in Florida and Spain. We began in 1987 with a villa in Spain, used mainly for family holidays. Since then we have slowly grown, and with it our wealth of experience - which we are happy to share with our guests.

Please 'Like' our Facebook page 'St George's Villas' for latest information and last minute deals.

Christine & James purchased this villa in 2007

Why Christine & James chose Kissimmee

We knew this particular plot was magical the moment we stepped on to the virgin soil. It took 5 years in the planning and building with love. The magic just gets better over the years. When our guests book St Georges Manor they can be confident that this is the home they will stay in and barring a disaster you will not be moved.

What makes this villa unique

Despite it's vast size, this house retains a homely feel. There are plenty of areas to gather large groups, but also spaces to sit quietly away from everyone. Most of our guests also love the pool and the fantastic location in Formosa Gardens - just minutes from Disney World! We also receive lots of compliments for our quick response time and effort to ensure each of our guests enjoy their stay in our homes, whatever the occasion. St George's Manor makes a wonderful venue for weddings and parties. We also offer catering and daily housekeeping services - please ask us for details.

Movie Stars

  • 5 of 5

If this house was a parrot it would be repeating WOW WOW WOW every two minutes. From the moment we swept up the driveway to the big double doors we felt like royalty or movie stars. We have stayed in FG twice before but never stayed in such a beautiful home. The owners have lavished much love and attention to detail. Everything about this home is perfect, except having to leave it. All the rooms are very generous in size and the 8 bedrooms are spread out to the 4 corners so we felt very private. The bedrooms are named after English country houses which seemed very apt. The pool is also superb, plenty of sunbeds and dining chairs. Very sunny from late morning and then all day. We fished at the lakeside, you feel are are in the heart of the countryside and can only see the odd house. It is much nicer than looking over the other lake when all you see and hear are other houses. The shopping plaza is very impressive with many top restaurants. We shop at Target for groceries which is only around a mile away and plenty of new restaurants have recently been built near Target. It was very quick and easy to get to Disney. Just 5 mins. Harry Potter at Universal is as good as they say, don't miss it. Only around 15-20mins drive. We spent a happy day at Cocoa Beach on the East Coast which took under the hour. Blue Springs is also a wonderful day out, between Orlando and Daytona Beach. Look out for the festivals at Lakeridge Winery, North on Hwy 27.Great Live music all day and it's free. Cheap wine and beer. Good food. The owners Christine & Jim were so knowledgeable and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The same for the management co and the housekeeper. Dee and Carolyn are a credit to them. We can't wait to return to St Georges although next time we mostly prefer to stay at our home from home rather than go out.

A home for stars

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing experience. From my first enquiry with Chris to staying there. Amazing.

Chris was extremely helpful and it was easy to make the booking. We knew it would be good but when we arrived there late (thanks Virgin) it was awe inspiring to walk into.

It truly is an amazing house that for our family group of 15 was beyond perfect. The bedrooms are all great but the master is bigger than some houses with a great double shower and deep bath. We had a marriage in the group whilst we were out there so the lovely honeymoon suite was used. Two toddlers were in the superhero room with my elderly mother in the Sandringham suite with its orthopaedic electric beds and access to the pool.

The pool .... it's great with a waterfall and hot tub/spa .

It's impossible not to feel special when you're based here and returning to the house puts a smile on your face every time

There are huge seating areas outside along with the Nook with its tv and fire which is very cosy.

We used the house for a wedding party and it was better than some venues.

The furniture and fittings are top notch and just about anything you may need is probably there somewhere. We were out a lot but on the occasions we were in it was the most perfect house in the most perfect location to spend quality time.

We had one minor issue with a door handle and had an instant response from the managing company who were out within the hour to sort it!

If you're considering St George's .. You're unlikely to find anything better . A huge thanks to Chris and the team for looking after us at this awesome house.

Awesome Experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous well maintained home in a great location. We owned a vacation home at a nearby resort that we rented from 2007 - 2015 so we had high expectations since we always strived to provide the best experience to our guests. We were a party of 14, three families, and we had plenty of room to spare. When we rented our home one of the most frequent positive comments we received was that the house looked as good, or better, than it did in the pictures. I can confirm the same is true here. I can't say enough about the privacy either. Many times in the area the home is directly behind another, or very close to a neighbor. While this home is part of a neighborhood, such that you feel secure, the pool is still your own oasis. The owners were very responsive as well. Excellent layout, great location, good customer service, what else can I say? As a former rental property owner in the area I can confirm this is a property worth visiting.

Our 3 generations stayed at Mulberry Park for a week in February (a grandma, five parents, and seven kids). We had three crib-age children, and pack 'n plays were provided for all of them. Even with 13 people, there were two bedrooms we did not use. Chris was incredibly responsive through all of our planning questions, and made sure our stay was perfect and effortless. We were even able to contact the management company with an issue at 8 pm on Superbowl Sunday, and they responded very quickly as well. The kitchen was stocked, the grill was great, the pool was beautiful, and the HOA is lovely as well. It's only 10-15 minutes to drive to Disney, which we did a few times, and about an hour from the Kennedy Space Center. The house looks (and is!) beautifully furnished, but still child-friendly. We all loved the huge screen in the movie theater, especially to watch the Super Bowl! I also accidentally left my laptop when we returned to NY and the Paceys were prompt and gracious in getting it returned to me. We're pretty picky about our vacation homes, and this home was just perfect for our needs. We can't wait to come back for another stay!

This house is truly amazing. There were 10 of us staying ranging in age from 3 to 70+. Everything we could have needed was provided and far more besides.

The entrance hall is fabulous and beautifully furnished while still remaining comfortable and cosy. My immediate family had the three rooms to the left of the hallway downstairs and it was like having our own "wing" of the house. We had such privacy and yet could be part of everything with my extended family also . All of the bedrooms and bathrooms were beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable.

The kitchen is extremely well equipped . I really enjoy cooking and the kitchen had absolutely anything that you could think of which was fantastic! We also barbecued on a few occasions and you have the choice of eating inside or outside.

We had a few rainy days while in Florida this time and the cinema in the house was fantastic! The kids were so excited and spent time there every day! Upstairs in the house is just as fantastic with large pool table and an array of family games to play. The balconies were enjoyed by us day and night.

The pool area is tastefully decorated and the beach entry or 0 entry idea is so safe for smaller children. My 3 year old sat in the shallow area for hours on end playing and splashing!

I honestly could not be more positive about this house. It is so beautiful. The owner Christine was always so professional and friendly in any dealings I had with her. I would recommend this property to anyone and it is so private too. It is very close to Disney, probably a six minute drive to the Walt Disney entrance. There are so many restaurants, shops, nail salons etc within a 5 min drive. The location is fantastic! I hope some day I get to treat myself again and stay in this amazing house. Thank you Christine for such a wonderful stay in your beautiful home!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing St George's Villas and for taking the time to write such a glowing review! We are so glad to hear that you all enjoyed your stay at St George's Manor. Your appreciation of the design and layout of the house is so lovely to hear - and we're delighted your little ones enjoyed it as much as the adults. We believe it is important to provide private areas as well as large gathering spaces in all our vacation homes so it means a lot when these details are enjoyed by our guests. We aim to provide a truly unique experience with everything you need for a great vacation, and we are thrilled that we were able to exceed your expectations. We look forward to welcoming you back to one of our properties in the future. Thanks again, Christine.

Perfect for our Large Family

  • 5 of 5

We had 11 people in our party, all adults (our children) except for our 7-year-old granddaughter. This was the perfect house for our week at Disney World! Everyone had their own spacious bedroom and private bathroom, and at the end of the day we could retreat to our own space or get together and hang out in the wonderful outdoor pool area or living areas. The master bedroom was a total retreat for my husband and I, loved the soaking tub and since we have a dual shower at home, it was wonderful to finally have it on vacation as well. The kitchen had everything we needed and I was able to do a "line service" on breakfast each morning and get everyone fed easily before departing for the day. (Wonderfully stocked with the right equipment!) The location was very convenient to grocery stores, restaurants and the parks. Everything was ready and easy as soon as we arrived. Code on gate worked and so did the one on the door. The Paceys gave us a fact file that answered everything perfectly. If you need space and desire luxury -- this is it.
