Fantastic stay at Watersong
What a lovely house, decorated to a high standard, great location, very secure, pool area was perfect for our 2 boys. Considering revisiting next year as there is so much to do, we had the best time. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone visiting Orlando.
Lovely, large & clean villa
Family of 4 - my wife, kids aged 10 & 13 and myself returned on Sunday after a 21 night stay at this property.
It was our first direct rental and we were a bit wary.
Even though the communication with the owner, Dave, all seemed above board we were still half expecting to turn up to find there was no property or being double booked - all proved to be unfounded thankfully!
The resort itself is lovely, clean and large - it's a 1 mile drive from the front gate to the property but it isn't a stacked estate like Windsor Hills, just a few property lined streets. Gated community with guards 24x7 who seemed thorough when conducting checks on cars/occupants but were friendly with it. After a few days they get to know your face, provided your parking permit is on display, they wave you through with a thumbs up.
The property is lovely, very spacious, spotlessly clean and very well presented. It felt very warm and homely and has clearly been well cared for/maintained.
Open plan from front door, through the family sitting area and onto the kitchen & living room, which has french doors onto the pool area.
The pool area is one of the largest in the resort and gets the sun completely from sunrise through until early afternoon (around 14:30) with the seating area being covered if you need some respite.
Pool was clean too.
Jacuzzi is important to us as my wife spends a lot of time in there. This one was a cracker - strong jets and was heated. My wife asked for the heat to be turned down slightly, which was accommodated immediately by the local management company.
To the rear of the property beyond the pool and run off area is mature woodland - really nice view giving the feeling of seclusion and offering privacy.
Games room was hit - pool & air hockey tables and a dart board.
We holiday in Florida for the parks and there's no escaping the fact that the property is a little bit out the way. It isn't the 20 mins quoted by others - you can get to Animal Kingdom in about 25 mins avoiding the I4 and 192. It's about 35 mins to the other Disney Parks, 40 to 45 mins to Universal & Sea World and 1hr 10mins to Busch Gardens. Not an issue for us as we've stayed on the 27 before, which were further out.
A good measure of a property is whether you would return and we absolutely would.
Dave was very easy to deal with and the local management company were first rate.
I don't give 5 stars for anything, so that kind of says it all!
Family holiday to Florida- October 2017
Florida is a very special place for us, as we got married there in 2005 and we have loads of fantastic memories from previous visits. This was our fourth visit to Watersong and we have stayed at a different villa on each occasion. This Villa was lovely, very well looked after and had very warm feeling about it. It was obvious that the owners made it feel like a family home. All rooms were spotlessly clean and decorated to a high standard. A good kitchen area and lovely pool area. We really enjoyed our holiday at this villa and would definitely stay there again in the future.
Lovely clean well maintained villa, tons of space, great pool, excellent communication with owner.
Lovely,comfortable villa in a peaceful,safe and very nice gated community,20 mins from Disney.
We are a family of 2 adults,two children and this was our first villa holiday and first time at Disney.
I was initially quite wary of booking direct with an owner,due to some negative reviews of OwnersDirect and Homeaway and,being the cautious kind,carried out due dilligence to avoid becoming a negative reviewer.Fortunately it was yet another case of unfounded internet negativity and our experience was totally honest, genuine and great,from start to finish.If you the reviewer are wary,as I was of committing your funds to this booking-don't be,and this is not some flowery review written by a friend of the owner,either.
The gated community is secured 24/7 by gate staff,feels very safe and is a beautiful neighborhood.
The villa is even more impressive than the pictures show and was so comfortable and a joy to live in for the fortnight we stayed..Everything worked perfectly-great oven,microwave,fridge/freezer,washer,tumble drier,all TV's,Bose dock,etc,etc.
The only minor thing we missed was a parasol for the dining table on the pool deck,for when the sun got too hot!
Our kids(girls aged 10 and 6)loved the games room,and their lovely Disney bedroom,as we all did.
It felt very cosy and secure to have our kids sleeping in an adjacent bedroom with only French doors separating us.We kept the doors open,making a perfect open area for us.This sleeping arrangement was one of the reasons we chose this villa.
The pool was fabulous,clean and safe-no sharp edges or slippy surfaces-and the jacuzzi-wazza!!(great)
Disney parks are only 20 mins drive.There's a small Dollar supermarket 5 mins away-very handy and cheaper than Wallmart/Target/Publix.
The owner,Dave Robijn and management team (Lynn and Ed Mak) are honest,genuine people and were a pleasure to deal with.All queries I had were answered promptly and efficiently.
Obviously we fully recommend this villa,(in spite of the Holland footy scarves in the games room !-only joking Dave-hup hup England!)after having the best holiday of our lives-so far!!
Dave,Alison,Romey and Evie
Thank you for these kind words.
It's great to hear that you and your family had such a great experience and nice time.
Hopefully we see back in the future but until then be safe and hup hup Holland!
Our favorite house in Florida!
We love staying at Mr. Robijn's house. The house is immaculate when you walk in. Photos do not do show how nice it is. My family and I really enjoyed the game room which has a nice pool and hockey table in it, when we were not at all the attractions close by. The rooms were very comfortable and so were the beds.
We also really enjoyed the pool on the sunny Florida days. The shower outside is real nice to have so you don't have to walk in the house after swimming and, there are plenty of beach towels to use which is very nice. Mr. Robijn is very good at answering quickly when we booked the house and the property managers always were extremely quick to fix any issue we had, which was only one the first time we stayed here.
The house has everything you could need which is rare for a vacation house to not miss a few things. Fully stocked from linens to silverware and everything in between.
Publix is about a ten minute drive from the house which is a very nice place to get your groceries for your stay. Chanmpions gate also has many chain restaurants you can choose from, but I like the local ones I've found over the years of staying here.
Disney is only about a 15 minute drive.
If you get the chance to stay at this Villa you will not be disappointed! We look forward to coming back.
Our privately owned, styled villa is located in the tranquil surroundings of the prestigious gated community of WaterSong. We are less than 25 minutes from Disneyworld, and other attractions such as Seaworld, Universal Stuidios and 'Aquatica' in Seaworld - their newest attraction. And there are more then 60 golf courses with several championship golf courses nearby with one as close as a 5 minute drive away. The Interstate-4 highway is 10 minutes away making the white sands of the Gulf and Atlantic Beaches very accessible. The nearest beach is about an hour drive away. Also you could go boating and fishing in the area of 100 Lakes as boat and fishing gear are easily to rent. Also there are many public boatramps to make it easy for you to experience the real Florida fish and wildlive! You can shop 'til you drop' at the many discount malls and eat out at a very reasonable price in a huge choice of restaurants - all within an easy drive.
Golf: There are about 60 golf courses with several championship golf courses in the neighbourhood with one as close as a 5 minute drive away. And then we have of course also the excellent golf courses at Walt Disney World!
Play golf year round thanks to the great weather all year.
