Overview

About the property

Large 6 bed / 4 bath detached villa at Glenbrook Resort sleeping up to 14 people

Enjoy the modern/contemporary look of our 6 BED 4 BATH home less than 9 miles from the parks at Walt Disney World Resort.

There are 3 king bedrooms, 2 of them en-suites master rooms, 6 twin beds and a sleeper sofa so we can comfortably sleep 14 guests – all bedrooms have their own TV.

For the kids, 2 of the twin bedrooms are themed - currently 'SPIDERMAN' and 'CARS' - and the garage has been converted into a GAMES ROOM with a slate-bed pool table and foosball together with a PlayStation 2.

We are also pleased to offer FREE high speed WIRELESS INTERNET.

Disney, Universal and Seaworld parks are all within easy travelling distance and when you need to recuperate for the next action packed day you can relax in front of the 52' LCD TV or soak up the Florida sunshine by your own SOUTH FACING PRIVATE POOL AND SPA surrounded by mature HIBISCUS shrubs for added privacy. TENNIS AND VOLLEYBALL COURTS are also available at the resort clubhouse.

Why a Holiday Home Instead of a Hotel?

- A luxurious, privately owned, villa provides you with the ideal opportunity to enjoy a home from home in one of the most action packed holiday destinations in the world

- You get more space than a hotel room at a lower cost per person

- Your family or group can live together under one roof with fully equipped kitchen, personal and convenience items

- Your own private pool, spa and relaxation areas

- A local professional managing agent to ensure high standards are maintained and for your assistance in case of need

- A perfectly located property whether you wish to experience the thrills and spills of the theme parks, face the challenge of one of the many golf courses or relax on one of Florida’s stunning beaches

Out & About - Theme Parks!

DISNEY World Parks are about a 15 minutes drive away (dependant on traffic)

A trip to Orlando would not be complete without a visit to Disney to meet Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and their friends. At Magic Kingdom you’ll find Cinderella’s Castle and Animal Kingdom provides one of the premier wildlife parks in the world. The Disney complex also includes Disney's Hollywood Studios, Epcot, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach – there’s something for everyone and if you love firework displays you'll be in the right place!

UNIVERAL Parks are about a 35 minutes drive away (dependant on traffic)

If you’re looking for thrills, the rides at Islands of Adventure and at Universal Studios will also get the blood pumping. Visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Jurassic Park and the new Skull Island: Reign of Kong and enjoy 3D rides like the Amazing Adventures of Spiderman and Despicable Me Minion Mayhem.

Water is also a major feature at the parks whether you enjoy the slides at Wet ‘n’ Wild or learning about the Florida wildlife at Seaworld – both in Orlando. Busch Gardens in Tampa (about a 90 minute drive) provides some huge adrenaline rushes - SheiKra carries riders up 200 feet stops over a vertical drop before hurtling them 70 mph back toward the ground at a 90-degree angle. Other rides include the Congo River Rapids, Jungle Flyers, Sand Serpent, Falcon's Fury and the new Cobra's Curse.

BEACHES - the coastlines of Florida are simply stunning and there are 2 to choose from!

Gulf of Mexico - 90 miles and about 90-110 minute drive

Saint Petersburg and Clearwater beaches are located on a beautiful peninsula on Florida's West coast and are bordered by the Gulf of Mexico to the west and by Tampa Bay to the east. Miles of white, fine-grained sandy beaches and sparkling waterways consistently ranked among the top beaches in Florida and the nation, Both areas offer activities and attractions for families, couples, and young people alike.

Space Coast – 79 miles and about a 90 minute drive

The area includes Titusville, Melbourne, and Cocoa Beach and is the home of the US space program.

The city of Titusville is home to Kennedy Space Center, which along with the Johnson Space centre in Houston, is the hub of NASA’s space exploration program.

The Space Coast is not just famous for space exploration - Cocoa Beach is well known as a destination for surfing, with the waves of the Atlantic Ocean offering many opportunities for surfers both expert and novice alike to enjoy.

About Rob Thornewell & Steve John

We're Rob and Steve and have been mates since we met at work a few years ago (well, a lot of years ago actually!) and decided to pool our resources and buy a villa at Glenbrook Resort close to Disney, Florida in 2005 and another at Windsor Hills Resort in 2006.

The climate, large properties and vastness of the open spaces of the Sunshine State really appealed to us along with a whole host of attractions in the area including, of course, the major theme parks and golf courses.

There is always something going on and always something to do.

Rob Thornewell & Steve John purchased this villa in 2005

It was very spaces for everybody

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the was a lovely stay not long enough, the pool was very nice and the house was big enough to make every body in my family feel real good, plenty of space for everyone to enjoy themselves in the pool. there was a few mishap, but we manage to over come those little thing that come when you go to places not been your home. But with all that we had a great time in the house and is a lovely house and big, nice plenty of room. And the master room on the first floor was something to enjoy with someone, everything was very nice thank you. Hope to rent from you again. The place is very good for a big family or a family reunion.

House is Awesome! Owners are friendly. Mangement Company is Top Notch

  • 5 of 5

I have 12 children between 4 and 19, and so my wife and I and the kids took our first family vacation all together here at Rob and Steve's Glenbrook house. As soon as we opened the front door and saw the vaulted ceilings, nicely tiled floors, and the wonderful air conditioning, we new it was going to be nice... Seeing all of the well decorated rooms and bathrooms - with everything clean - we felt so much at home. The swimming pool and lanai was a nice touch, especially with the colored lights on for night swimming!

There was some limited communication with the owners initially, and I must say that they were quite friendly. The Management Company (1st for Orlando Vacations) was very responsive and professional. During the stay, one of the lights in the pool started flickering and needed to be replaced - and the company was out the next day.

We really had no issues with the home, and we did our very best to keep everything looking good and cleaned up (not easy with 12 children, but we just treated it even better than our own home!).

There were plenty of usable necessary items already stocked in the house: Plates, bowls, glasses, silverware, towels, laundry / dishwasher / paper goods, etc. - most of which are owner supplied, and some items (like disposable wares) are "guest stocked and replaced items".

We certainly were grateful for the previous guest leaving behind some items - and we purchased and left behind a few more that were needed. For the cost of this unit, and the amount of care and attention put into it, "Paying it forward" to the next guest is a really good way to do things.

I will say that I was sad to see some items treated badly by previous guests (like a chipped bowl and cracked pitcher for water), and that the guest (whoever it was) did not replace the item and instead hid it. The owners rely on communication from guests, using the management company as their conduit. Any negative things anyone has ever said about this owner / mgmt. company / property all goes back to "guest usage".

So.... that said.... If you rent this property (which I recommend), please treat it nice. We'd like to come back again :-)

Great Family Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 3 nights in this luxury villa. We had a fabulous time. Great place to come home to after a long day at the park. The kids really enjoyed the pool (which was very clean) and game room.

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I decided at the last minute to take a trip to the Orlando. After searching and inquiring about several places I came across this home in Glenbrook Resort. The home was very spacious for our group of 10 and it is very well managed. Whenever I had a questions the owner responded in a timely manner. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this property to anyone looking for a nice spacious home.
