Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been wintering in FL since 2006. We have not stayed more than once at any other home except this one: Evening Song in the Water Song development. Over the years, we prefer a gated community for added security over a home that is not gated. We have enjoyed this home so much that we are going to stay there for a third winter. It is spacious with comfort and privacy for us and our guests. The kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances. There are plenty of place settings for our guests. We really like the pool area and the seclusion of the lot without back yard neighbors. When the weather is warmer we enjoy grilling meals and dining outside. Unlike other property owners, we find Eric very accessible and responsive to our needs. We especially like the welcome package provided by the property management with breakfast groceries to start our next day after our long drive and unpacking. Golfing in the area is great with courses of varying difficulty and price. The house is located near the theme parks, but not so close that you are in the day-to-day traffic. Trips to either coast is just two hours or less away. Our favorite activities include the Silver Spurs rodeo, Lakeland theater shows at the Convention Center, dining at the restaurants in Celebration and at Manny's Chop House.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

This property was heavily recommended by a friend who stayed a couple of years ago and how right he was! The property is exactly as described down to the table setting and swan towels on arrival as seen in the photographs. All dealings with the owner were straightforward and efficient both post and pre-booking, with a wealth of useful information included. As a base for the parks and somewhere to chill it ticked every box. We LOVED this villa and can't wait to return, just have to start saving!

Convenient, spacious, clean, modern

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described. The neighborhood and house was secure. The location was convenient to Orlando attractions, gas, grocery store.... The house and pool area was clean, modern and spacious. There were many helpful items provided, such as soap, toilet paper, towels, pool toys...we didn't realize until later in the trip there even more items in the closets such as extra beach towels, a broom, a cooler... The owner, Eric, was very responsive and helpful to work with. We paid for pool heat in June and were glad we did, the weather was great but we are northerners and like the pool extra warm. Our damage deposit was refunded with no issue. My husband and kids had a great time. My only wish is that the check in time was earlier than 4pm, but is understandable because they need time to clean the house after the last guest. Plus there is a club house to use while waiting. Would definitely rent from again!!

This villa at Watersong was perfect for two families of four. Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this lovely home in Watersong. It was perfect for our two families of four and was a great location, close to the theme parks and other local attractions. The pool was great for a late night swim after returning from a long day at Disney or Universal. I would recommend paying for the pool/hottub to be heated if you are going to be here in early June. The beds were not the most comfortable but overall we really enjoyed this home.

Owner's Response: We had already been in touch with our management company to have the mattress and spring beds replaced in the master, and they will be replaced shortly. Unfortunately this could not be done before Greg and his family arrived. Glad it didn't spoil the vacation.

Great Villa, superb pool and spa.

  • 5 of 5

Villa was lovely - perfect for us and our three children. We stayed for 11 nights in total, this being the last part of our road trip that started in New York some 10 nights prior - it was a welcome relief knowing the villa was everything that we hoped for and was exactly as described; the owners Eric and Jean were very responsive to our questions (even took the bother of phoning us directly to answer some queries). A good information pack was sent through with everything you needed to know once the booking was paid for.

Villa was clean and tidy, and obviously still quite a new build as Watersong still has a number of villas being built on this very secure complex. (Gated entry appeared to be manned 24/7). Air Conditioning worked well, along with Internet, Cable TV (with some decent channels available as well!) and a well equipped kitchen.

The heated pool was a good size compared to other villas we looked at, plus had a decent Spa/Jacuzzi - the kids thoroughly enjoyed it. A decent amount of pool side towels was available as well which was most welcomed. Pool deck got the sun all day, with part of this area under cover that did provide some relief from the Florida Sun.

This is our third visit to Florida as a family where we've rented villas/houses directly with the owners, and this has been one of the best so far. Highly recommend!

Lovely property in gated community.

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 2 weeks at this lovely villa. Very clean and well maintained. Service from owner and management company excellent. Villa had everything we needed and more. Pool and pool area wonderful and not overlooked. Close to shops and restaurants with Disney about 20 minutes away. Would recommend.

Great Villa in Central Florida

  • 5 of 5

Recently returned from our winter getaway to Florida and a Caribbean Cruise. While in Florida we stayed in Eric’s Watersong Villa which was perfect for our needs. The home was clean, fully stocked, in a convenient location and gated which we prefer when traveling. We enjoyed the pool and spa which was heated, had a southern facing direction and open space view. We travel several times a year since retiring and use Homeaway and VRBO for our stays. Watersong is a good location in central Florida and Eric’s Villa is a wonderful choice within the development. We are now planning a return visit to Florida in early 2018 and Watersong will be high on our list of places to stay.
