About Anthony Russell
Hi, my name is Anthony and I live in London. I came across this Cypress Pointe development at the early building stage in March of 2013 when I visited Orlando to look for a vacation home, my kids had made me promise that we'd visit Disney every year. I didnt want the Disney hotel resort holiday, I've done Disneyland in Paris and for me the themed hotels offered poor value for a family with poor quality food. We preferred a family home away from home but still within easy reach of downtown Orlando and both coasts. I spent 2 whole days with the Realtor looking at the various rental areas in davenport. For me, most of the older vacation homes looked a little tired, more suited to a retirement home, which is fine, I'll probably retire to my home in the future. We were drawn to the newness of the development and the-get-away-from-it-all feeling. This village is very peaceful. The plot I purchased at the time was bare earth. I was drawn to the design exteriors which reminded me of caribbean villas and happy holidays in Jamaica, my parents are from Jamaica. I've watched the house grow as the developers have sent me photos at every stage. I was first to stay here with my Mum and Dad, who live in the US, in Oct 2013 and they loved the house- actually, it was a struggle to get them to leave! My kids have been to Disney and I hope they will return year after year with their friends and with their family. My home is fully managed by a local management company who take care of maid services between bookings and are on hand should any minor repairs need fixing. They take pride in the homes they manage and I am very pleased with the level of service they provide to my guests. Feedback is always welcome on how you find my home on arrival, but you won't be dissapointed. I welcome you into my home, I know you will enjoy your stay!

Everything was great,we really enjoyed it. There were a few things that needed attention. The sheets on the Master bed needs replaced real bad, and the sir filter needs replaced in the furnace filter, also the other spare room with the connecting bathroom,that mattress needs replaced really bad.. we did enjoy the pool, but I got sick and could not use it a lot. So Thanks for the use of your home.

Great house near the Disney parks. Family of 8 enjoyed the property. The only thing was the playroom was very hot because it was the garage, but the kids still had fun. The manager who was available was great and answered my calls and text when I had questions.
Nice, new, but wouldn't rent again
This house is new and in a gated community and is plenty spacious. It is an easy drive to Disneyworld and Sea world. It seems perfect, but for me it was full of stumbling blocks. I rented it using the Homeaway app on my phone and I guess that was my mistake. We intended to spend a lot of time in the pool and most our planned meals involved a BBQ. So an outdoor seating area and grill were a priority. The seating area by the pool was perfect, but there was no grill. It turns out that the app does not show any notes the owner makes on the list of amenities so I couldn't know that the grill has to be rented...
I never expect a house to come with anything in particular in the kitchen, but I rent houses twice a year and they all have had some helpful items in the kitchen. If you rent this house, expect only the minimum. No condiments or seasonings.... There isn't even salt. No potholders to protect hands and countertops from getting burned, only one dish towel. There was a can opener, but it was broken so we had to run to buy a new one. No dish soap or sponge for washing dishes. No mixing bowls or containers for storing food in the fridges. I don't expect all these things, but this is the first place that has had none of them. I made so many trips to the store.
The game room was well intentioned with a large variety of games, but the only really functional one was the fuseball. There was a dart board with no functional darts, an air hockey table that was so wobbly that I told everyone not to touch it for fear of it breaking it. The pool table was usable, but both cues had no tips so it was a little frustrating.
My final stumbling block was that the checkout instructions asked for the towels to be washed... I had to run to the store once again for laundry soap to wash them. I left them running in the dryer when we left. I shouldn't have bothered since we got charged for the towels after we left. Apparently ALL of them were stained. We only used them for showers, they weren't stained when I put them in the wash. I don't know, I really never got an explaination as to how we damaged all the towels.
Part of me wanted to give this property 1 star, but, despite my challenges, it has its nice points. The large outdoor seating by the pool was my favorite thing. And the open kitchen/dinning/living room was great for having everyone together. Wifi worked. Furnishings were adequate. Everything was comfortable.
Thank you for your review and happy that there were some aspects about the house you were happy with. If we can just respond to some of your concerns. It does state quite clearly on my Homeaway page that I don't provide a grill and that it needs to be rented seperatley. Either I can book a grill for guests convenience or guests can rent a grill once they are at the house but it is an optional chargeable extra. I decided not to include a grill as I was always getting charged by my property managers for cleaning the grill on guests departure. The rental company I use take care of all cleaning when they collect.
When we were at the house in late May we bought a large mixing bowl, it was in the cupboard by the breakfast table. My kids were using the games room most of the time and believe me they would let me know if anything didn't work. My property managers leave small quantities of toilet roll (3 rolls) kitchen towels (1 roll) tea bags, washing powder, and a few dishwashing tabs so that guests don't have to immediately run to the store on arrival. However, my home is self catering and whenever we've rented a house elsewhere we find no supplies at all so we always go to the store on the way in. I will however speak to my management company on the points you've raised. They sent me photos of damage to towels and one of the comforters on departure. The towels needed replacing as they were heavily stained and the comforter need to go to the dry cleaners so it was perfectly clean for the next guests. They charged me and I have to pass on these costs. They manage my property and its in their interests and mine to maintain the home in pristine condition. I passed their contact number to you and they were waiting for you to call them so they could send you the photographs of the damage. They are still happy to discuss any issues you had at the house, after all happy guests might be returning guests. I do have returning guests who are more than happy with the spaciousness, the extended pool and pool deck, the free wifi and national calls from the house and the general cleanliness and quick resolution to any issues whilst they are there, the property managers actually live in Cypress Pointe. The white folder they have in the house gives useful information and their contact number for any queries, they are very proud of their work and are always ready to assist.
I hope you enjoyed your holiday in the Sunshine state
Lovely spacious home for our extended family
We had a fabulous time staying here! It was clean and spacious and perfect for our extended family of 10. The layout worked great and it was nice having such a large space all on one floor. My inlaws and my husband and I had nice spacious master baths and my sister in law had her own bathroom located right outside her room. The kids shared the bathroom on the other side of the house located in between their two bedrooms. The pool was wonderful after a long day at Disney. We were happy that we paid the charge for the pool heat. The hot tub was a little confusing. We understood where the dial was to turn on the bubbles, but we quickly found out that the dial was also to heat the hot tub. We turned it on when we got home and it was hot enough about 30 minutes later. We had an issue with a smoke detector battery dying one morning and the management team had replaced the battery by the time we arrived home. The owner was prompt in answering all of my questions. The kitchen was stocked with basic supplies. We used the coffee maker and toaster a lot. We brought our own crock pot and a frying pan which we used quite a bit. The only other things I wish we would have bright is a big mixing bowl and tupperware. Luckily we had ziploc bags so the Tupperware was not a big deal, but making salads in a medium bowl was interesting. We put half in a ziploc bag and half in the bowl and made it work, but I would suggest you bring a large mixing bowl. We spent our week at all 4 of the Disney Parks. Getting to them was easy. It took us between 17-20 minutes to get to most parks. Parking was a little difficult at Magic Kingdom, but that had to do with Disney and not the home we stayed at. We had a wonderful time and if we stay off property next time we go to Disney we will try to stay here. I would also recommend this home to my friends!
Thank you for your review Stephanie
The house is indeed spacious enough for extended families and I've received many large families in the past
Guests seem to like the peace and tranquility of the development which is a good contrast from the thrills and spills of the parks. We recommend the beaches on either coast, particularly Clearwater beach on the gulf coast, some 90 miles from the house heading past Tampa.
A warm welcome awaits you should you decide to consider my home for a return visit to the sunshine state
Great Vacation Villa
This is our 2nd year at this wonderful villa. It is exactly as shown in the pictures. We had a few minor issues and Sue responded immediately and sorted the problems very quickly. She was very accommodating. We were a large group and the size of this villa provided for all our needs. Anthony was very responsive when we reported damage to a door prior to our arrival and he was great to deal with through the whole rental process, including a timely refund of our damage deposit. Cannot say anything negative about our stay, it was all a positive experience for us. Thank you Anthony.
Thank you for your review Nancy and glad to hear you made yourself at home for the second time in my house. My local management company can respond very quickly to any property issues as they are based in Cypress pointe. I can't praise them enough for keeping my home in good order.
Hope the chill in Canada wasn't too bad when you arrived back and I look forward to welcoming you back to the Sunshine state and to my home in the future
We loved staying at Anthony's! It was absolutely beautiful and had everything we could possibly need! Loved how separate the bedrooms were from one another. Our only negative thing to say about this beautiful masterpiece is, the backyard does lack some privacy. Fortunately, not all the houses were rented at the time of our stay, so it wasn't too big of an issue. But, if you are looking for a backyard that backs onto a golf course or open area, this place may not be for you. Otherwise.. we'd go back in a heart beat!! Thank you so much for having us :)
Clearwater beach on the gulf coast is lovely, beautiful sunsets and about an hours drive from the house, just past Tampa. In the other direction, on the Atlantic coast, it's 2 hours drive to Fort Myers and 2 hours 37 mins to get to Cape Coral.
