Our superb 3 bedroom home is ideally located for Orlando, Sanford and Tampa airports. Conveniently central for all theme parks, shops, restaurants, malls and beaches. Our home has its own solar heated screened pool with underwater lighting for those late night dips! The villa is fully equipped with everything you may need for your vacation including all linens and towels (even beach towels)! Just bring your toothbrush!
Rob and I are both in our early 60s. We have 3 children and 3 grandchildren. I am retired and Rob is still working in the newspaper industry. My spare hours are spent child minding my grandchildren and looking after my elderly father of 95.
Mrs D Lake purchased this villa in 2002
We first went to Florida in 1996 and fell in love with it. After several trips to Florida we felt we would like to own our own property out there so after looking at several we settled on Chatham Park. We decided on there because it's very close to the main road through Kissimmee, the 192 where restaurants, shops, pubs and entertainment can be found. It's very close to Orlando Airport, about 20-25 mins; Sandford Airport, 45-50 mins and Tampa Airport, just over an hour. It's close to International Drive for hotels, shops and more entertainment. It's very close to the theme parks - 10 mins to Disney World, 20 mins to Sea World and 30 mins to Universal Studios. The nearest beach is Daytona approx. 50 mins. away and Clearwater about 90 mins. We really love our time out there!
Each time we visit the property we endeavour to carry out improvements not only for our benefit but also the enjoyment of all our guests.
We can highly reccomend this villa, it's in an excellent location, has all the amenities that a family could need, Debbie and Rob are very helpful.
This was our second stay here and was a home from home.
We look forward to staying here again in the future.

We booked this villa as a replacement for a stay in a Disney Hotel after we found they abuse the booking process and the costs were absurdly high. This was definitely a fortuitous choice, the villa is really lovely and spotlessly maintained. It is very conveniently located in the middle of the main theme park area yet it is surprisingly well situated in a quiet suburb area of similar properties. It was easy to access all the shops and malls for our daily essentials and the villa is stocked with everything you might need to a family vacation. Although we managed to pick the coldest period in recent years we still enjoyed sitting around the screened pool and relaxing in the well furnished villa between shopping and eating expeditions. We would highly recommend this villa to anyone wishing to enjoy the Florida experience without the ridiculous premiums that the theme park hotels charge. Far too many excellent restaurants to pick out just one favourite, but we enjoyed eating in just as much as we did eating out.
Debbie and Rob were excellent temporary landlords and they provided all the necessary information to give us a relaxing and stress free stay. The only reason we will not be rebooking this villa is because we have done Florida many times before and this was our last visit - it was our best!
we actuall went easter 2014 and have just booked for next summer for 3 weeks
its a lovely villa has everything you need .. lovely location 20 mins away from all the parks .. the owners are so lovely very friendly and helpfull cant do enough for you ...
am really looking forward to staying here again next year

although only 2 of us at the villa as it was our "ruby wedding anniversary" treat, we felt at home, all what you may need was available as at your own house except you are in florida!!!
property was clean, spacious, great pool to cool down after a hot day!! & welcoming, owned by british owners was a bonus as we could communicate prior to leaving for our holiday.
very close to all food shopping, eating out, outlet store malls, disney complexes, etc. etc & my special, the "kennedy space centre"!
a car is a must & we got a satnav (called gps in usa) was a great help
we would highly recommened this villa
