About Rachel Stacey

Hi,

My hubbie & I live in Hampshire, UK. Home consists of us & 2 dogs - a cocker spaniel and a cockapoo (who are only slightly bonkers).

We enjoy good food, good wine and good company, as well as music (playing and listening), walking the dogs in the country and putting our feet up in front of the TV.

We always enjoy our trips to Florida, it's such a great place to visit. We do hope we can help you with your accommodation needs for a fantastic trip to the sun.

Rachel Stacey purchased this villa in 2014

Why Rachel Stacey chose Disney / Orlando

We chose this Villa because we simply fell in love with the view - a long time before there was a building on the site. The quality of the finish by the developer has far exceeded our expectations and we couldn't be happier with the result.

The view from the Villa never gets boring, as well as numerous different birds, at various times we have also spotted otters, turtles and an alligator - all from the comfort of our own pool-side lounger.

We were looking in the location of Davenport as it provides a great location to explore Florida, as well as being convenient to the Parks and razzamatazz of Orlando but far enough to escape all that when you want to unwind. It really does offer the best of both worlds.

It's in easy reach of several truly world class golf courses, or a you can take a direct route to the coast.

What makes this villa unique

The Villa is situated on the Solterra Resort Community, which provides first class clubhouse facilities exclusively for the use of anybody staying at the Resort. This includes a large pool with slide, lazy river, spa, lounge, grill/poolside cafe, children's play area, 2 x tennis courts, volleyball court and gym.

The Solterra Resort is also a gated community, giving you added peace of mind.

Free wifi is provided at the Villa, and has 4G coverage for compatible cellphones.

Perfect for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family vacation - we had six adults and 5 kiddos. The bunk room was a huge hit and we spent so much time in the pool! We also loved watching all of the birds come in every evening to gather in the pond. We spent two days at the parks and the kids wanted to stay in the pool at house the others days. We definitely recommend adding on the pool heat - the temperature was perfect for our small children. The community pool was also very nice - the water slide and zero entry pool were great. A fantastic home in a great community. Also, Rachel was a pleasure to work with. She was quick to respond and super helpful. We hope to be back again!

Owner's Response: Dear Janine, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are so pleased to hear you had a good time and the children were able to make the most of all the facilities and that everybody enjoyed the views over the conservation area at the rear of the Villa. We would of course be delighted to welcome you back should you decide on a return trip. Best wishes Rachel & Paul

Solterra resort villa.

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about Rachel and Paul's home.Well for three weeks it was my family home.Probably one of the best positioned villas in the estate with a great view over the lake which contains local wild life.A south facing pool was ideal.The villa is huge with six bedrooms.There is two downstairs living areas and a huge upstairs cinema room.A large games room is in the double garage.The gated estate is a five minute drive to the shop's and restaurants at Championsgate and the slip road to Interstate 4.Solterra resort has a great clubhouse with community pool,gym,lazy river and soon to open tiki bar.It's about a 20 minute driven to Disney parks.

Absolutely stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in a villa in Florida and we definitely chose well! The villa arguably enjoys the best position on the whole of the Solterra resort, so close to the lake with all its beautiful wildlife - we spent many mornings watching the otters diving for fish, families of cranes and bald eagles. The villa itself is gorgeous and has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay, the owners have thought of everything! The house is modern, spacious and done out to a very high standard. We had such a lovely time and didn't want to come home!!

Owner's Response: Hi Joanne, Thank you for submitting your review - we're glad you had a great time and enjoyed the view as much as we do! There seems to be more wildlife to watch every time we visit. We would be delighted to welcome you back should you ever decide to return to Orlando. All best wishes, Rachel

Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely family friendly property, good size pool and hot tub, lovely bedrooms and bathrooms, plenty of space and a real home from home. Very quiet setting, just the birds on the lake! The Soltana resort pool was also lovely and the opening of a cafe and small water park in the future sounds amazing! Would definitely return for future visits. Was about 20 mins to Disney by car and 1/2 hour to Universal, and very easy to find our way there, and actually was nice to be staying a little bit away from that busy area. Champions Gate is nearest for shops/restaurants and had good facilities, such as large supermarket, and good quality restaurants not just fast food. Very enjoyable stay!

Thanks for a wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This property surpassed our expectations. The pictures really do not do this home proper justice. The rooms were clean and very large. The kids loved the bunk room. Pool was clean and always warm (paid for the heat). The neighbourhood in general is tidy and quiet, but there aren't many properties that share the view that this one has. Sun all day and no houses backing onto it. The community pool was incredible. The kids always wanted to go there to swim and use the water slide. Will be even more fun when the lazy river opens. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. Also, when you are renting a house in another country, there is always a little hesitation about who you are renting from, etc. I can happily say that dealing with Rachel was very easy and always pleasant. A++++
