About Alexia and Minno Venema

We are a family of 4, living in the Netherlands.. Key for us is the outdoor lifestyle Florida has to offer. Florida also known as the Sunshine state offers plenty of sunshine year round..We like to have breakfast, lunch and BBQ diners on the patio and to enjoy the very spacious pool and pool area.. With the entertainement capital of the world within easy reach, we never have a dull moment and lot's of family fun vacations..

Alexia and Minno Venema purchased this villa in 2006

Why Alexia and Minno Venema chose Disney / Orlando

After years of owning a villa in the Disney Area, we decided to sell our villa and custom build a new one.. in an area nearby to offer us more privacy and more tranquillity.. Nature noises, in stead of traffic and vacationers screaming in the pool next door till late at night.. That's why we choose for Nature's Edge at Lake Pierce.. More space in- and around the villa, more relaxation and Florida's beautiful nature all around you. We liked to have a luxerious masterbathroom, a wood burned fireplace & a spacious kitchen.. Everything what we liked on a family home is here to make our or your stay as comfortable as possible..

What makes this villa unique

Situated only 15 miles from LegoLand Florida and only 30 car minutes from Walt Disney World is attractions wise an unique benifit. Also the Bok Tower Garden is very nice to visit year round if you like a spiritual, nature like experience. The gardens also futures Florida's oldest vacation home open for visitors. Bok Tower is situated at Florida highest point above sea level. Lake Pierce at the end of the straat is very easy to fish, by renting a boat at Jennings Resort, where you can rent your gear and bait. The area is known as 'the bass (fish) capital of the world'.Playing golf is attractive at Lake Bess Golf and Country Club and several other great courses like the Diamond Back Golf & Country club, The Grenelefe Golf & Tennis Resort and of course the award winning courses at WDW and Champions Gate. Most of all it's the environment that makes it all special.. Tranquillity, overwhelming nature with lot's of lakes and even a hilly countryside. If you have been visiting the Disney Area a lot, it will be surprisingly different to stay here with us and will give you a new perspective on your stay in the Disney Area, with the 'Entertainement Capital of the World as ever within reach.. In short, you have the option to choose whatever you like depending on your mood without the stress of missing something during your holiday..

Guestbook comments from the owner

Alexia, Minno et leurs enfants sont des personnes extrêmement sympathiques et nous avons été ravis de cet échange avec eux. Tout a été parfait et s'est déroulé sans le moindre souci.

Nous avons beaucoup aimé la maison à Haynes City. Elle est extrêmement bien équipée et nous y avons passé de supers moments. L'intérieur est très spacieux et confortable. L'extérieur est parfait pour se reposer, se baigner et faire des barbecues.

De plus, elle est très bien placée pour visiter Orlando et tous ses parcs.

Cette expérience a été un vrai succès !!

Great stay, perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Villa was easy to rent, Alexia got back to us right away to book, and was gracious when we asked for an early check-in and late check out. We had a minor issue with the power, and both Jill, the property manager, and Alexia responded immediately and resolved the issue.

The villa itself was perfect for our needs, from the living areas, to the pool and bbq, and we were happy to see that it was stocked with dishes, pots, etc. to use. Thanks also for the welcome bottle of wine! We enjoyed it out by the pool one evening.

Location wise, we could not have asked for better! It was in a quiet neighborhood, away from the hustle and bustle of Orlando, yet convenient enough to get to Disney and for dinner on evenings we ate out. Walmart and Publix were about 15 minutes away, and we were able to quickly stock up on what we needed for the week.

Overall, it was a great week, and I would not hesitate to rent this villa again.

The property was excellent and all that is stated on the website is correct.

  • 5 of 5

Meet by Jill who was friendly and approachable. She helped us with a couple of minor issues. The property is large and had everything required for our stay. The kitchen and bathroom are an excellent size along with a great double garage with plenty of room for our large hire car.

The pool is a good size with a safety fence for any children.

Lots of different wildlife around the villa in which we enjoyed very much. Most places can be found within an hours drive and would recommend Kissimmee for a good night out (Old Town) on a Friday or Saturday.

Spacious, tranquil retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Brick House was the first time we had booked a villa independently. For anyone apprehensive about such a process I can assure you that this property fully lived up to and indeed exceeded our expectations. The property is very spacious with a lovely open plan layout. We stayed here for three weeks as a base for visiting the attractions of the Orlando area and were very sad to leave as it truly became a home from home. If, like us, you are looking for somewhere totally peaceful to retreat to after a busy day at the theme parks, you want to avoid the noise of the built up areas, and you're happy to spend a bit longer driving to the main attractions on lovely, scenic, traffic free roads lined with orange groves, rather than being stuck in the traffic jams which blight the suburbs closer to Orlando, then this is the villa for you! Is it very well equipped and very well looked after. During our stay we had a welcome visit from Jill, our very helpful host, the gardener and pool man visited once a week, and pest control also paid a visit (no pests here I hasten to add, probably because of these regular preventative visits!) We asked for a full clean to be scheduled for the middle of our visit and this was arranged very easily with a great job done. We spent a lot of time outside at the beautiful pool area. The pool is screened by trees for privacy, the water is clean and well maintained, and we thought the pool was larger than the photos suggested. The lounge and dining areas are very comfy, and the kitchen is very well equipped. There are plenty of thoughtful touches throughout the property to make your stay smooth and comfortable. While there are plenty of commonly known places to eat in the area of Haines City, the local independent restaurant, Cherry Pocket, is well worth a visit for a true taste of local life and local cuisine in a stunningly scenic setting. We are hoping to return to Florida in a few years time, and when the time comes I would book this property again in a heartbeat!

What could be improved...

The patio furniture was comfy enough but in all truth it's a little tired and mismatched now, could do with updating.

It would be good if someone had responsibility for cleaning the tiled patio area. This can get a little dirty following rainstorms and does not currently appear to be an area of responsibility for any of the different maintenance teams.

Overall a first rate property and thank you so much for a fantastic stay!

Quiet Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Alex and Minno were fantastic hosts - they got back to us right away on our request for booking and even accommodated us to arrive early on check-in.

We had everything we needed for a quiet family vacation - wonderful after a full day of visiting local parks. We were especially happy to find a cooler so we could pack drinks on day trips.

The local restaurant, Cherry Pocket Seafood was wonderful to discover - very nice on the patio - great food - and local wildlife was very entertaining for the kids.

We would absolutely recommend this beautiful home to families!

Wonderful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our Honeymoon in November 2015...The house is breathtaking...the photos really don't do it justice! The neighborhood is very quiet, and the neighbors are extremely friendly!

Aside from an issue with the pool heat, our stay in this house was amazing!

If we come back to Florida in the future, we would not hesitate to stay here again.

Perfect house, peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month here, it was clean, well maintained and so so peaceful. If you want to be at the heart of the action, just around the corner from the parks and shopping, then stay somewhere else, but if you want tranquility with plenty of wildlife and don't mind driving on traffic free roads then this house is perfect.

We chose to stay here because of its location and the very competitive price and we were not disappointed. We had no problems during our stay and booking was straightforward. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review! This is exactly why we (custom) build our home in Natures Edge. We've owned a property near Disney for a couple of years, but although the distance was short to the parks, we suffered form the traffic jams on US 192 every day. Year by year the environment became more busy and stressful. We found this piece of land along the golfcourse near Dundee and build the house near the lake. It was our best choice ever. Now, being only 15 minutes from Legoworld and an hour from the major attractions it's a place to relax, enjoy the oversized pool, enjoy nature and play golf and still have Orlando "around the corner. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you back again. Alexia and Minno

Our villa is located only 10 minutes (13,5 miles) from LEGOLAND FLORIDA in Winter Haven! This 150-acre family theme park, located in Winter Haven, offers more than 50 rides, shows and attractions geared for families with children ages 2 to 12 and ultimate LEGO fans. Just a 45 min. from Orlando Airport, 30 min. car drive (34 miles) from Walt Disney World and other attractions such as Seaworld, Universal Studios and 'Aquatica' in Seaworld. Also near to the highest point of Florida, where you will find Bok Tower Gardens, as a perfect spiritial getaway!

The big benefit of our location is on top of our closeness to LegoLand that you reach Disney from a different direction to the 100s of people staying in Kissimmee. They may well be stuck in a traffic jam along the HW192 whilst you will drive straight in! You are also nearer to both the Gulf and Atlantic coasts. You can shop 'til you drop' at many discount malls and eat out at very reasonable prices in a huge choice of restaurants.

Other Activities: Boat rental at Jennings Resort to fish and boat at Lake Pierce.

Golf: There are about 60 golf courses in the neighbourhood, for instance within 10 miles you'll find The Grenelefe golf and country club in Haines City. Also you will find the Lake Bess Golf & Country Club on only 10 carminutes in Winter Haven, children till 14 play FREE!

The nearest PGA courses you will find at Champion Gate Four Corners, Reunion in Davenport and of course the excellent golf courses at Walt Disney World within a 30 minutes car drive.

Play golf year round on these golfcourses, thanks to the great Florida weather!
