David Walsh purchased this villa in 2003
Its perfect for our family needs with its 4 beds and 3 bath and extra large pool and spa. We loved the corner plot which allowed us to have the oversized pool and extra landscaping.
Calabay Parc is superbly maintained as it was built as a short term rental community and has a Home Owners Association that manages the landscaping and maintenance in accord with its short term rental covenants. Its quiet but within easy reach of all the main attractions.
We have just returned from 2 wonderful weeks stay at this gorgeous villa. All rooms, including bedrooms were huge and the master bedroom with en-suite and walk in shower was even bigger! Kitchen and dining room were also massive and space was plentiful. It's quite obvious that the villa is a second home with its very thought out and comfortable furnishings. Air con throughout was perfect. Swimming Pool was great temperature and refreshing after returning from all day at parks! No need for pool heat in Aug/Sept. The jacuzzi was very warm!!! Added bonus was the games room with pool table and air hockey, ...and great place to dry your clothes when you get caught in the Florida storms! There is also a sub room with easy to use washing machine and tumble dryer! We didnt use the computer as we all had iPads but there is one there to use free of charge. It has a very fast free wifi, details are supplied in the villa. There is a safe, but we didn't feel it was needed. The massive bonus for us was (stop reading now ladies) the cable tv had been upgraded to include live premiership football and we even got the England game......in all rooms!!! And as the pubs don't show it.....that was a dream for the lads. The villa is on Calabay Park, easy to find, and very very quite, which is great after the days in Disney. You need a car but you'd be mad not to have one in Florida anyway! Petrol (Gas) is only about 70p litre so don't worry about hiring the 5 ltr 7 seater Chevrolet like we did! Loads of resteraunts on the 192 about 8 minutes away. Huge Wallmart about 5 mins away. Perfect location.....lastly, thanks to David, Gloria and family for letting us stay there. We didnt know them but since booking feel we've known them forever.....very helpful with all information you need.
Been to Florida 3 times....if I went again, we'd definitely go back to this villa.....just perfect ......Recommended to all..... Just one thing on car hire.....make sure you judge the petrol and take it back empty as you receive a full tank and you are charged for it (Alamo). And don't get caught on paying the offer of a toll permit.....we did nearly 2000 miles and went through only 8 tolls in 2 weeks which cost us less than a tenner.....gorgeous villa......you won't be disappointed ......Cliff & Sharon and Family.....Birmingham
Location excellent ,villa beautiful extremely comfortable beds the pool is incredible
We have just returned from a fortnight in this beautiful villa. It's very clean and well equipped. Pool extra large and lights up beautifully at night. 4 lovely spacious bedrooms with plenty of hanging space. Couldn't really have asked for any more. David was very helpful and cooperative throughout. Would def use again. Thanks David and family, we loved it.
House was a home!! You immediately felt like it was your home and not just a rental house. The pool and Jacuzzi became our best friends. When we weren't visiting the amusement parks, we stayed and enjoyed the pool and the home's amenities. The property management company was great - especially Becky! The few things that needed attention were fixed timely! You are near supermarkets, attractions and more! Thoroughly enjoyed our week and would definitely recommend!!!!!
This was my first time using Home Away and David made the entire booking experience a breeze. He provided great notes on local attractions and restaurants. We could tell the home had been professionally cleaned when we arrived and it had everything we needed outside of food. It's in a lovely neighborhood which was great for morning and evening runs and it's also very quiet which was great after being out and about all day. My wife and I loved having a pool/jacuzzi to ourselves.
If you don't mind driving about 20-25 minutes to get to the different parks this place is perfect. It was also an hour drive to Tampa and Cape Canaveral from our location. Overall, we had a great time and have been recommending this place to friends and family since we've been back.
Villa is amazing. Close to Disney. It has everything you need for a home away from home. Very clean!! The pool and jacuzzi are awesome! We used them every day. Will definitely stay here again!!
The villa is located on Highway 27, midway between I4 and H192. It is about 15 minutes from Disney, 20 minutes Sea world and 25 minutes Universal studios. It has over 100 golf courses within half an hour. There is a Publix supermarket about 2 miles away and a new Wallmart about 4 miles away. Either coast is approximately one and a half hours away. It is perfectly positioned for the perfect holiday.
