About Stuart Boyd

We are Stuart and Lesley and we live with our two daughters in Manchester. We first visited Florida when the girls were in primary school, fell in love with the sunshine state and were fortunate to have the opportunity to purchase our lovely home at Encantada in 2009 so we can share wonderful holidays with family and friends.

To us all it is like going to our other home town. An added bonus has been dealing with so many wonderful people and helping them enjoy a well earned holiday. We have also made some new friends along the way.

Stuart Boyd purchased this house in 2009

Why Stuart Boyd chose Disney / Orlando

We visited a number of locations before deciding to buy our holiday home in Encantada.

One of the reasons why we decided on Encantada was its location; ideally located just off H192. It is near enough to the parks to be able to return home in the afternoon when the parks are at their busiest, to relax by the lake or the pool and then return to the parks with your batteries fully re-charged later in the day for more fun and fireworks. It is also close to shops and other amenities.

Encantada is a safe, very well kept, gated Community. The grounds are lovely with a lake, a children’s play area, club house and a large shared pool. There are also several golf courses and fishing in a number of lakes nearby.

What makes this house unique

Our holiday home is a spacious three bedroom townhouse that is suitable for couples, families or groups of friends. Our home is furnished to a high standard, with free wifi.

Following your day at the parks it's nice to know that at any time the journey back to Encantada is only a few minutes. There is an array of superb restaurants to fit all budgets minutes away, or if you prefer to cook at the villa using the fully equipped kitchen, the shops are close by.

The on-site management team, manage our property for us. This is another benefit to our guests as the staff are on hand to help.

We also spend time exploring away from the crowds. The coast is easy access an hour away, with fabulous beaches, wildlife and surfing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I'd like to say that we had a wonderful time in your house.

The house is great! And the staff of Encantada Emanagement is very kind.

They helped us promptly with everything we need.

I just want to tell you a little story that shows how nice was our vacation

in your house. One day, my seven-year-old son was talking to his

grandfather by Skype. Then, my father asked him: "When are you coming back

home?" - and my son said: "I am at home". :)

That's the way we felt there - at home.

Thank you for giving us that opportunity.

Best wishes,
Feb 2016

very comfortable property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The Encantada resort has excellent facilities and is in a lovely location. The property we stayed in was really comfortable and had the added bonus of a small private pool. Stuart was really helpful and the booking and check in could not be faulted. I would definitely recommend.

The bar in the club house was a nice touch and the meals were good value for money. Being close to the Disney parks made the location ideal.

lazy week

  • 4 of 5

We wanted somewhere central that could offer access to the parks but also good facilities for just relaxing.The house was well presented and equipped. We found it very comfortable for the two of us and would recommend it without any reservations at all.The main pool area was big enough ,with a couple of pools and two spa pools ,to always find a quiet spot looking over the lake to enjoy the sun. We enjoyed regular strolls around the lake,it was good to have somewhere to walk away from the traffic.

Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral and Daytona Beach on the Atlantic Coast are approximately 50 minutes away by car. On the west coast about 1 hour's drive are several beautiful beaches including Clearwater and St Petes. The Marina at Sarasota is a must for boat lovers and anyone wanting to try deep sea fishing.


The resort is 20 minutes away from Orlando International Airport and 45 minutes away from Orlando Sanford Airport. Car hire is recommended to take advantage of all Central Florida has to offer. The road network is easy to navigate and well signed. Maps are freely available and the GPS can be hired from the resort for an extra charge.


3½ miles to Disney World - Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney MGM Studios, Animal Kingdom, Downtown Disney, Blizzard Beach, and Typhoon Lagoon.

10 minutes drive to Sea World and Aquatica.

20 minutes drive to Universal Studios, Wet n Wild, and International Drive.

20 minutes drive from Mall of Millenia, Florida Mall, Prime Outlet.

Celebration and Kissimmee old town are close by and well worth a visit.
