About the property

Villa Nr. Champions Gate, Nr. Disney World, Florida - Just 10 Minutes from Walt Disney World!

Are you planning that once in a lifetime holiday to Florida? If you are, you’ll want somewhere to stay that provides superior accommodation, but which doesn’t break the bank. You’ll want your own private pool with views to die for as you soak up the sun and you'll want to be within easy striking distance of all the main attractions, restaurants and shopping malls but not next to any main roads or noise. We searched long and hard on several trips to Florida to find a villa that meets these criteria and finally, we found it! Now we are looking to rent it out to you.

About The Owner

We are Andrew & Gemma Hansell & Kids - The "Hansell" family, living in Hampshire, UK. We have owned the villa for 10 years since just after it was built in 2002. We love getting out to there as much as possible, and enjoying all the sights and attractions that Central Florida has to offer.

Our kids (all 5 of them!) just love playing in the pool - we can't keep them out of it!

Our plan when we retire (in about 20 years time!) is to spend a couple of months a year over the winter soaking up the sun...but until them we'll just have to make do with the occasional trip.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2002

Why The Owner chose Grand Reserve

The main reason we bought this villa is two fold:

The location: The villa is set amongst lakes and wetland areas. It truly is idyllic…peaceful, quiet, friendly and beautiful. We are a short drive to Disney and all the other attractions in the area. Getting to the beaches is also simple. The coast (both Gulf and Atlantic) are about an hour away via the interstate.

The space: The villa is really very spacious...the pictures just don't do it justice!

This was a great place!!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was perfect for my family. It was clean and had plenty of room. My kids really enjoyed swimming in the pool when we weren’t at the parks. The drive to both Disney and Universal wasn’t bad at all. We would definitely stay there again.

I'll never stay in a hotel again!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect place to stay if you are visiting any of the theme parks. We were a 15 minute drive to Disney and about 55 minutes from Cocoa Beach on the east coast! This villa was perfect. So quiet in the evenings after a long day of fun. The villa was clean, comfortable and the owners think of even the small details which was great. Andrew responded to all of my questions in a timely manner. We arrived shortly after Hurricane Irma hit and were nervous about our trip but Andrew quickly eased our mind. Thinking of going back next summer and no doubt we will look at staying in this villa again! Thanks Andrew for a great trip to Florida.

Lovely villa well situated for all attractions . Very peaceful area.

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villa. We arrived with hurricane Irma pending but we had plenty of contact details and info from both the owner and management company. The villa could benefit from some minor updating. Nothing that would stop you having a fantastic time whilst there.

One of the best vacation homes!!

  • 5 of 5

It was an absolute pleasure to stay at this villa. Enjoyed the pool. House was very clean and tidy. It was close to all near by attractions. We had a bit of an issue with the Air Conditioner but the property manager was prompt and it was fixed on time. Eric (the problem solver) helped us with that.

Thanks to Andrew on you quick and prompt responses.

PS future vacationers: Don't follow the directions on the gate code entry box. Key in the code directly . Follow the directions as-is on the details provided by Andrew :-).

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Nice villa in a quiet location but close enough to the theme parks and restaurants.

There is also a supermarket minutes away aswell as fast food.

A great place to relax on days when you want to get away from the parks.

Fab Villa in Great Peaceful Location

  • 5 of 5

Villa was immaculate in an ideal location, plenty to do close by and handy for Disney (15 min) and Universal (25 min drive). Our second visit to this villa as you couldn't ask for anything more, well equipped and spacious. Owners very responsive, helpful and informative. Great information pack provided for those days away from the parks. Pool area gets sun all day and is ideal for some chill out time.

Situated in the heart of Florida, beaches are about an hour away on either the gulf or atlantic coasts - take your pick!


Orlando International Airport is 25 minutes by car. A very easy drive along the highway 417.


Champions Gate Shops and restaurants are about 2 minutes by car. The 192 at Westgate is less than 10 minutes.
