Hi there Ray and Aleta

Just wanted to let you know we arrived home safely after a truly wonderful holiday at your beautiful home. We have been to Florida many times and always been fortunate in our choice of holiday homes - all offering a high standard of accommodation . With that in mind we expected similar of your home.

However, we were totally blown away by the level of comfort, personal touch’s and value for money yours offered. It was exceptional and an absolute credit to you. Thank you so, so much for allowing us the opportunity to experience our favourite holiday destination in an outstanding home and for all your help and advice when booking . Kind regards The Parry family( LIVERPOOL).

A perfect family haven

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at 3am - checked in at reception (without a hitch) and on entering the property broke into a smile. The house is superb - a real home from home that you immediately relax in. On long days out it was perfect to come home to ... on days off you could spend the time at the great pool complex then throw some steaks and ribs on the communal barby before returning. The parks were so easy to get to nothing was more than 30 mins. If you are looking for a great family place with a reasonable rent this is it. We took our 3 sons aged 20, 17 and 13 and they had a room each with beds to spare. The washing machine meant I came home with all clean washing - thank you Ray and Aleta for letting us stay .. We had a fantastic holiday, all my emails were answered promptly and booking was just so easy and relaxed. When we return this property really would be my first choice.

Feels just like a Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

All the comforts of home with the added bonus of the resort pool & arcade. Located within an easy 30 minute drive of Disney. We had a wonderful first visit to Disney!

Very nice experience

  • 4 of 5

We were very comfortable in the rental home at Regal Palms. The space was perfect for our needs. My husband and I spent 3 weeks there. We were joined by our daughter's family for eight days. They had the entire second floor - three bedrooms and two full baths, very accommodating. We enjoyed cooking meals at the house and not having to go out to eat all the time. The kitchen could have been equipped a little better. We would have liked to have a pair of tongs, some baking sheets, and a larger fry pan but we managed. The coffee pot is really old. Might think about replacing that. Really appreciated the in-unit laundry. Kids enjoyed the swimming pool and water slide at the resort and the arcade. We also appreciated the close proximity to the theme parks - very convenient. Not sure I would stay in a gated resort again. But that's just a matter of personal taste.

Beautiful House! Would highly recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay in this fantastic house in Oct/Nov 2015. We couldn’t fault it at all. I had previously stayed at Regal Palms in 2010 and thought I would be hard pushed to beat the house we had already stayed in but this one lived up to all my expectations and more.

We arrived fairly late in the evening after an exhausting 10 hour flight from the UK. We used the directions Ray had given us to get to the house and (having done the other route) it definitely was a much easier and stress free way of getting to the resort. Check in was effortless and the staff were very friendly. We had already been warned about the daily maintenance charge beforehand so no nasty surprises there.

The house was absolutely stunning. It has been decorated to a very high standard and was immaculately clean. I felt instantly at home there, there are so many extras that have been included in the house that make it a home away from home.

The master bedroom was huge, with a lovely on-suite bathroom and a built in wardrobe (hangers included). Plenty of draws for clothes to go into so you don’t have to live out of your suitcase for 2 weeks. You can really make yourself at home.

The kids bedrooms were gorgeous. My partners 8 year old son instantly chose the Mickey themed room. He thought it was wonderful!

Unfortunately my parents were able to join us on the trip as originally planned but had they been there the downstairs accommodation would have been perfect. The room was very large and had an on-suite bathroom, and again it was beautifully decorated.

The living areas were comfortable, plenty of room, with a large TV which was perfect for chilling out in front of after a long day at the parks. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you needed to cook and prepare food/drinks etc (there are even emergency tea bags!!).

Ray and Aleta has sent us an info guide for our stay with included everything you needed to know about the house including instructions on the washing machine/ dryer / dishwasher etc, which was extremely helpful. It also included tips on the best ways to go to get to the theme parks (I would recommend using the Disney short cut!) and other valuable information.

In short we had an amazing holiday – a big part of that was owed to this fantastic accommodation and the customer service received from Ray. I would book it again tomorrow if I could afford it again so soon!

Thank you Ray and Aleta for letting out your beautiful home.

This property was just as described or even more

  • 5 of 5

We (a family of five) stayed at this property during 12 days vacation in december 2015 - january 2016. Everything was very clean, well organised and cosy. As American household appliances were not familiar to us, we really appreciated the manuals in the house. Equipment overall was plentifull and extra towels, blankets, linen etc were available. Beds were very confortable, rooms were spatious and toilets (four) were very clean and funktional. Only mild problem during our stay was that at first we were unable to lock the door. It turned out that as we had closed the door, a battery had dropped off its place. So it was out own fault. For this matter, we were given very friendly assistance by phone from the service company (yes, very good information in case of anything is found at the house).

The area is considerably large, but quiet and secure. One of used jogged in the area several times, so the traffic was really not bothering. Pool area is very clean and nice and towels are provided. The staff is friendly and there's also fully functional gym and (almost like at home) sauna, which are free for the residents.

The main (Disney, Universal..) attractions are located with an easy access (depending on the traffic of course). Mexican bay and the cities of Tampa and st. Petersburg are quite near. Not to mention the several outlets nearby. The nearest supermarket is in walking distance as well are the nearest restaurants and a (British) bar.

This property really is what it's told to be! We did not miss a single thing during our stay! We very much recommend this property for everyone, who is dreaming of easy, confortable and relax vacation in Orlando.
