About Don & Cathy Clayton

My wife and I bought a rental home back in 2011, in Orange Tree. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent there for our own getaways, renting our home out, and meeting so many wonderful people through phone calls and emails. We had always enjoyed Florida so much, but we grew tired of booking hotel rooms and being disappointed with the quality of the rooms or suites. It was then that we decided we would buy a house to use for our own vacations, and share our home with others who desired a nice and clean home to enjoy their vacations, as well. Our main objective was to provide a rental home for others, with the same qualities that we expected in a home, and with the focus being on cleanliness, and furnishings that were much better than average. For us, that's what renting a home was all about… getting away from the unexpected, and being assured that we had a nice, clean and comfortable place to enjoy our time away from home. In the time we rented our home to others, we had close to 30 reviews, with all being a 5 star rating, and of course, we were proud of that. Our manager was wonderful, and deserves much of the credit for the 5 star ratings. After having made many trips to Orange Tree, and 2 1/2 years later, we decided to sell our home, thinking we would like to travel to other places. We did just that, but we were ready to make our way back to Florida, and here we are, having purchased the home shown on this listing. My wife and I are retired and have plenty of time to visit Florida, and would be honored and happy to prepare a quote for your next visit to Florida! By the way, we have the same manager for our newly purchased home, and without her, we wouldn't have made the decision to buy another home.

Don & Cathy Clayton purchased this house in 2015

Why Don & Cathy Clayton chose Orange Tree

We purchased this property after spending some time vacationing in this home, and loved it! Our friends owned the home, and were gracious enough to share it with us for several of our trips to Florida. We fell in love with the floor plan, the natural light within the home, and the beautiful view from the rear of the home. With the blinds open in the living room, you can look out and enjoy seeing the pool,spa and lanai. Beyond that are the common grounds and one of the Orange Groves that helped name Orange Tree. When you are looking out the door of the Family Room , there are no homes to get in the way of the beauty of the scenery, and the privacy is wonderful! The area is always well groomed and beautiful, and for us, that was enough,. We are now proud to be the new owners of this beautiful property. After looking at other homes that were sale, none compared to this one.

What makes this house unique

Orange Tree subdivision is in a friendly and quiet setting away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas, but close enough to be an easy drive when visiting points of interest. The benefits of choosing Orange Tree is because it is so unique, provides a feeling of home, and the freedom to enjoy the lighter side of life after a long day at the theme parks or other exciting adventures of your days. Here you will be able to get a quiet nights sleep and plenty of rest for another great day in Florida!!

Beautiful and spacious home

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely fabulous. The pictures do not do it any justice. The home was very clean and very spacious. I would recommend this property to anyone and I am also considering staying here again. The owners were very helpful when and if I needed them. I really enjoyed my stay and am glad we got to stay here during our vacation.

Unbeatable property, brilliant owners.

  • 5 of 5

From first contact to last (we were fleeing Hurricane Irma) Cathy was above and beyond excellent in every aspect of communication, and helpfulness. The property is perfect, beautifully tended inside and out, furnished impeccably in quality and taste, and with management on hand (next street), this has to be undervalued with a mere 5 stars.....

Owner's Response: Colin, thank you so much for a wonderful review!!! The best part of owning a vacation home is knowing that we have been a part of a successful getaway, and great memories. I appreciate your kind words very much, and I thoroughly enjoyed our communications, as well. You and your family were such a pleasure, and we hope you will come back again whenever you can. You certainly rated far more than 5 stars with us!! Thank you again! Wishing all of you good health and happiness! Cathy

We had three weeks here in August. It is a wonderful house, fully equipped and very comfortable. We needed Marion (who manages the property for Cathy and Don) twice during our stay and both times the problems were resolved very quickly. The neighbourhood is quiet and very clean. The pool is wonderful and the pool area backs onto a very large grassed area and is not overlooked. The house is about 30 minutes from Magic Kingdom and about 45 minutes from Universal. The local area has several supermarkets and restaurants. We loved our time at Happy Daze, from the booking process, communication and through to the actual stay was all excellent and we would love to return. Thank you very much Don and Cathy (and Marion and hubby!). Jackie and family, Manchester, UK

Spacious, clean, comfortable and well equiped!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Happy Daze! The house was more spacious than appeared in the photos and very comfortable. The pool area had a great view of the field beyond and we enjoyed watching the flocks of birds that roamed the area. Close to many restaurants and grocery stores, but out of the Orlando/tourist hubbub (about 20-40 minutes to most attractions). We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at Happy Daze. The house was beautiful and had everything we needed and more. Convenient to all the parks and shopping. Owners were wonderful and a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend staying here if your family is planning a trip to the theme parks or just want a relaxing place to stay. We will definitely return someday!

Owner's Response: Oh gosh, what can I say, except to say you were such amazing guests!! Certainly, having guests like you make owning a rental home such a pleasure, and we would absolutely love to have you back at anytime you have the opportunity. Thank you for your personal comment regarding us, the owners. Our goal is to provide a vacation home that our guests can enjoy, and your recommendation to others is great, and I thank you. I want all our guests to feel welcome and appreciated, and to know I care! At the time of booking, of course, our guests are just that... guests, but when all is said and done, we consider all to be our friends. I/we always want to keep the lines of communication open. It is an honor when guests feel free to contact us, and I'm so glad you did. Again, thank you, and your stay was our pleasure. My best, Cathy

Always a pleasure, which is why we keep coming back.

  • 5 of 5

All things good... Beautiful, modern and immaculate home, great owners, and attentive management company, with whom we have made great friends with for life. This is our second year, and already booked for next year. We won't be staying anywhere else. Sometimes you find a gem in life, and this is ours. I'm just sorry I am limited to five stars, because it should be higher.

The Clermont/Orlando area is a great location in the Central Florida region. You will never run out of things to do! Disney World, Universal Studios, and Sea World Theme Parks. You will also find water parks, golf, mini golf, museums, indoor parachuting or and endless supply of other interesting activities. Check out the large number of Florida State Parks and see some of the most beautiful Live Oak and Cypress Trees in the country. When you tire of all the excitement, you can sit back, relax and take advantage of the crystal clear pool and spa. If you have some energy left you can enjoy walks around the peaceful, quiet neighborhood of Orange Tree and pick your own fruit when they are in season.
