About Grahame Goodyer
Hi and welcome to Florida. That's what we heard over and over again on first visit, and guess what, there is a big welcome waiting for you. As the old shaver advert used to say, we loved it so much, we bought a house there and still love going back 20 years later. And that's what we hope you will want to do as well. From the moment you touch down and drive the short distance to our villa, you will find that everything you hope for in a Florida vacation. Our villa has all the home comforts you left behind plus few new ones you won't have. Do you have a swimming pool and a Jacuzzi? We do and we want share them with you. We maintain the villa to high standard. In January 2016 we had the pool resurfaced and the Pool deck repainted. In January 2015, we spent another $11,000 upgrading facilities and furniture in the master and 2nd bedrooms whilst completely repainting the exterior and most of he interior.
Grahame Goodyer purchased this Villa in 1998
Why Grahame Goodyer chose Kissimmee
It has a wow factor when you walk as you gaze up at the 22 foot high ceiling and all that space. and that's just the reception area. Go through to the kitchen and you will see its modern and clean. The pool side lounge is comfy, has a 42" TV, DVD player and 5.1 sound system. Chill with a book (there's a small library to choose from), CD's to listen to and loads of family DVDs to watch all at no extra charge.
What makes this Villa unique
The benefits of the villa are there for you to enjoy. The heated pool, the Jacuzzi, the DVD library of family films, and when the you want more, there are 5 Disney Parks, 2 Universal parks, Sea World, Legoland and many other theme parks all within 30 minutes drive of the villa.

Great Villa, home from home!
Having stayed in Orlando a couple of times before we had an idea where we wanted to be based and Hamilton Reserve is in a fabulous location, close to loads of restaurants and ideally located for the parks and malls.
The villa itself is highly specced and homely compared to many of the other places we considered and we were not let down on arrival. Everything worked as it should and everything felt just right, down to the air conditioning in the rooms to the temperature of the pool.
We have one teenager and one almost teenager so the wifi was a must and it was nice to have the high speed access whenever we got back 'home'.
The layout of the villa is very nice too, it's ideal for a night in sat in front of the TV as well as formal and informal dining, when we did actually eat there!
Cant honestly think of a single negative point about our stay here, it really has everything - the hot tub, the pool, every TV channel you could ever need, even the essential (for me) coffee machine!
We would certainly place this villa ahead of anywhere we have stayed before and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who is considering a holiday in Orlando. Every one of us in the family hope that one day we will be back here again.....
Wow. What review. Thank you Martyn.
I would like to point out to any future guest reading this review, this is a genuine review from a genuine fist time guest at our villa.
Property was exactly as described
The perfect location for our girls trip. Property is close to many restaurants, shopping and of course Universal, where we spent a lot of time. Everything was in perfect working order, neat and clean. We enjoyed every morning by the pool for breakfast. Have stayed in many properties over the years and would place this at the top of the list.
So please you and your girls had a wonderful time in Orlando and our villa proved the perfect base.
spacious, clean and close to attractions
stayed in a few villas in Florida this one is definately the best, really clean and spacious, it has everything you can possible want when you have been on your feet allday, will definately be visiting again
Spacious villa close enough to the parks, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle. Villa was well equipped and clean, details such as the address and how to get in to the villa were given in plenty of time. The pool was a good enough size for a family to unwind after a busy day in the parks.
Fantastic house central to everywhere
We loved the house. We stayed for 2 weeks with our 4 children. The house was clean and spacious with everything we needed there to use. The location of the house was great for us as we were a 10 minute drive from Disney and found ourselves central to all of the places that we had wanted to visit. We hope to return again next year.
It was lovely to have you return with your enlarged family this time.
We are very pleased that our villa still meet all your needs.
Looking forward to having you return next year.

Was so impressed with this, very well, equipped home. It offered all the comforts of home without being at home. The beds were very comfortable! The villa was clean and well maintained. If you are traveling with a small child, there are plenty of toys, books and even a stroller available. The pool was our favorite spot to unwind after a long day. Disney or shopping attractions are very close! So glad we found this gem, can't wait to visit again!!
Dear Nathan and Shelly,
Thank you for your comments, especially the note on the beds. I suffered from a back complaint myself and know what it is like to sleep on a poor quality bed. Therefore for the benefit of guests and myself, we ensure a top quality posture sprung mattress on the master and queen beds.
As for the pool, it's great to relax by anytime of the day or night.
So pleased you had a wonderful stay and we look forward to having you as guests again in the future.
Grahame and Catherine.
