LOVELY SIZE VILLA AND POOL AREA, IN A VERY QUIET/SAFE NEIGHBOURHOOD

  • 4 of 5

There were 4 of us staying at the villa, including one child so there was plenty of room for all. Easy to access to Highway 4, leave plenty of time though, as it does get super busy on there.

A short distance away is a supermarket, a pharmacy and some fast food restaurants. I would definitely suggest driving to Celebration for dinner. Good selection of restaurants in a lovely location... You must try the ice cream shop...

The pool and terrace was great, our son loved it.

The let down for us was the sofa, it was in a terrible state with Leather peeling everywhere. We contacted Terry (Property Manager) who advised us the owner was in the process of buying a new sofa and that he would bring some throws to go over it.

Can I suggest you offer a welcome pack, as I understand from friends this is very common with villa rentals. For people arriving late like us, it would of been very helpful.

Homely residence with great customers service

  • 4 of 5

The journey from the airport to the villa was easy using the detailed instruction provided by Gary the owner. When we arrived at the villa the access and alarm codes were simple to enter using the instructions and everything was exactly as described. There were 4 in our party which included siblings aged 26 and 17 and the villa provided us all with space to chill alone when we needed. All 5 bedrooms were well presented with comfy beds and televisions two of which had en suites. Arriving at around 6pm we called at the local Publix supermarket to grab some essentials before spending the evening by the pool, there is a large pool deck with plenty of seating/sunbeds and loads of space - there was even some float toys and lilos for our use. The kitchen was well presented with everything you need. There is everything that you need within 5 mins drive including supermarket, off licence, fast food delivery services (Papa Johns and Pizza Hut) McDonalds and also restaurants. We used Chillies at Champions gate (5 mins drive) where there is also a Millers Ale House newly opened!

The Location of the villa is excellent for visiting all of the Disney parks (WDW approx 15 mins, Disney Springs approx 10 mins) although it takes 35-40 minutes to get to Universal Studios and a similar time to Busch Gardens and 25-30mins to Seaworld (timings depend on traffic). We spent the 4th July at the street party in Celebration town center which was great and only 10 mins away by car. We really enjoyed our stay here and the customer service was very good, the maintenance manager (Terry) lived just down the street so any queries were quickly answered. I would recommend this villa to friends as it offers great privacy where you can enjoy your own pool after a long day hot tailing it around Orlando's finest attractions.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

There were 9 of us staying at Gary's villa. The layout was fantastic for our extended family to share. It suited both children and adults perfectly. There was plenty of space to be together or apart.

The home was clean, and well taken care of. The new stove and fridge were fantastic. The beds were very comfortable, and the sheets were high quality. There were plenty of towels for showering and for the pool. The pool heat was a lovely addition. The kids did not hesitate to get in or stay in the pool all day because the temperature was comfortable. The Spa was lovely to come home to after standing and walking for hours at the parks.

Our experience dealing with both Gary and the property manager, Terry, were positive and any questions or concerns we raised, we received a prompt response.

We had a lovely, and memorable vacation!

Great Holiday Location

  • 5 of 5

This house in Lake Wilson Preserve was great in a variety of ways: - Great because it was spacious with all the facilities that our family needed. Great because the pool was a good size and the outer patio area around the pool gave lots of space to sit in the sun or in the shade. Great because its location gave easy access to Highway 4, the arterial motorway that gets one to the Disney parks, the Universal facilities, the aqua parks, Busch Gardens, Lakeland and other locations to the west ( For us it was our regular visit to Tropicana Field to watch Tampa Bay Rays play!). Great because the shops we needed for supplies, and indeed other forms of shopping were easy to motor to. Great because the area of Lake Wilson Preserve is a lovely place to unwind away from the hustle and bustle of the attractions around that part of Florida.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property was well care for. All rooms were well maintained. The neighborhood was ideal. It was close to the highway and had easy access to all needs. My son stayed about 4 miles away in a hotel for his baseball team and we didn't want to stay at the same place so that we didn't cramp his style. It only took 20 minutes round trip to visit with him. My wife enjoyed using the spa. We didn't use the pool, but it was there if we desired. We drove up to the Disney area and found it to be an easy drive of about 15 minutes. We would definitely stay there again and we would highly recommend!

Our Beautiful Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

My 3 golf buddies and I stayed at Gary's Florida vacation home in 2014 and loved it so much that we decided we would stay their again in 2015, but by the time we got around to booking our accommodations for our annual golf trip, his home was already booked for the week that we were interested in. We learnt our lesson, so when it came around to booking for 2016, we booked well in advance, and as expected we have another perfect stay.

Big, clean, roomy home within an easy drive of many great golf courses (Champions Gate, Orange County National, Mystic Dunes, etc).

We like the fact that his house has 4 bathrooms, so each of us had the luxury of our own bathroom. Sure beats having to share a bathroom when everyone is in a rush to get out the door for an early round of golf.

The kitchen has been upgraded with beautiful stainless steel appliances since our first visit, and is fully equipped with everything that you need.

We had a minor issues with a couple of lights not working when we first arrived, which Terry, the property manager, resolved right away.

All aspects of our stay from booking, paying, receiving instructions, and dealing with property management were perfect. We will definitely stay here again when we return next year.

Thanks again Gary!

Our home is in a great spot on a beautiful development called Lake Wilson Preserve, in the sought after Champions Gate area. It is ideally located for families wanting to enjoy the Disney parks, Sea World, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure to name but a few well know parks, or for groups of golfers wanting to take advantage of the many championship courses in the area. Golfers should look at the Champions Gate golf resort which has 2 Greg Norman designed championship courses as well as the HQ of the David Lead-better golf academy. There are 6 other courses within 30 mins drive. We also recommend that you try to get to the beach - the Atlantic coast is great for surfers and the Gulf coast offers an idyllic white sand coastline. The house is finished to a Super luxury standard, with flat screen TV's in all rooms, 2 king sized beds, 1 queen sized and 4 twins, a pool/spa area with large sun deck which overlooks a picturesque conservation area & woodland.

If we have forgotten anything then we hope you will tell us! A key feature is the large tranquil views over and around the conservation area where you can explore the wildlife. Complete with private pool and spa and the largest pool deck on the estate. There is also a large shaded area if you prefer. Most people take advantage of dining outside in the evenings to make the most of the Florida climate and the lovely surroundings. BBQ/grills can be hired at very competitive prices if you need on
