Welcome to our home located in Tuscany which is in the Westside development within easy reach of Orlando International Airport.
It is in an area of outstanding beauty surrounded by natural wetlands and pine wooded landscape with an abundance of natural birds and wildlife, making it one of the most beautiful and tranquil settings you will find in Central Florida.
It is ideally located within easy reach of Disney World, Seaworld, Universal Studios and the Airport. In addition our villa's proximity to a variety of quality golf courses and a vast array of restaurants and some of the best shopping in the state make this the perfect location for exploration of the area.
As one of the main attractions in central Florida, Walt Disney World is only a 5 minute drive from our villa. Enter the park through the new west entrance just off highway 192, close to Animal Kingdom and you will miss much of the delay in accessing through the main entrance.
The local area of Westside has many shops and restaurants and other local amenities, if you don't feel like straying far from the villa. Orlando, of course, has some major shopping attractions as well as all the restaurants and nightlife you would expect from an urban city.
Closer to home is Downtown Disney which has some excellent attractions for both day and evening. When you get home after visiting all the sights and sounds around, why not put your feet up with a glass of wine by the private pool and enjoy a cool, relaxing dip?
Our home benefits from beautiful Italian themed architecture and first class fixtures, fittings and appointments. Occupancy. 4 Bedroom comfortably sleeps 8 (Maximum 10).
Happily married, family man...
Rob purchased this villa in 2007
A place in the sun! And a place for fun.
Lovely area of outstanding beauty, great food, Disney, a wonderful place for families and golfers
The accommodation is exactly as listed and would comfortably sleep 8 adults and was clean and tidy upon our arrival. Rob, the owner, and the property agents ,American Sunshine, could not have been more helpful. The small problems that we had were dealt with promptly and efficiently.
However, the property is advertised as Five Star, I feel that this is stretching things too far! Five star to me means that you exceed expectation and not cut things to the minimum.
Three mismatched items of furniture in the lounge area did not have the WOW factor we have had in other Florida rentals. We have had four in the Englewood area and this is our fourth in the Orlando/Kissimmee area.
Two mismatched loungers in the lanai in a property that claims to sleep 10 is not adequate, let alone five star!
Towels were provided, but only small bath towels. No hand towels, face flannels or towels for use on the loungers or water parks were provided as we have had in other rentals in Florida.
There is only one tea towel in the kitchen. What are we expected to use when this is dirty and in the wash.
Fortunately after my shoulder operations I was able to open and close the garage door, the electric door opener had obviously been removed. I don't think that I would have been capable of doing this prior to my operations. Having paid for a house with a garage I like to be able to use it. Many of my contemporaries would not have been able to cope - so I would not be able to recommend this rental to them. I would expect an electric door opener on a five star property.
And then there is the noise maker in the kitchen, cunningly disguised as a dish washer. Conversation or listening to the TV when this is in operation is virtually impossible. Its performance as a dishwasher is also very disappointing, again minimum specification and not five star. How a dishwasher so designed that the soap dispenser door can't open because it fouls the lower tray, and only has one spinner below the bottom tray can be expected to work efficiently is beyond me. We found that we could only load the bottom tray, and only after thoroughly rinsing the dishes first.
This said, the property is well maintained, wi-fi worked well, is in a very nice neighborhood and handy for the theme parks.

Shopping – the nearest mall is the Orlando premium outlet mall which is on Vineland Road, around 20 minutes from Tuscany via the I4 and exit at LBV. For a better selection you can stay on the I4 for a drive of around 35 minutes total and exit at the Mall of Millenia.
Restaurants – Highway 192 spoils you for choice with everything you could wish for, there are fast food outlets, Italian, Indian and Sea food restaurants all within a 15 minute drive of Tuscany.
