The Perfect Home

  • 5 of 5

Having just returned from our 13th holiday in Orlando, I wanted to say how lovely this home is, we have always stayed in villas, lots in West Haven, we like this area as it is so handy to everything, this home had everything in it that you would ever need for a great place to stay. We had got in touch with the management company while we were there and they were always very prompt to reply and answer any query we asked, the house was very clean and well furnished. The owners of this property are very nice to deal with and would certainly use them again and recommend them to anyone who would be looking for somewhere to stay in Orlando. Highly recommended.

Amazing location close to all Disney parks with easy access to supermarkets and shops. Situated in a very safe gated community. Villa was in excellent condition, clean and tidy. Ahead of our stay all of our queries were answered by George within 24hrs of emailing. Management company were very quick to respond within a couple of hours of speaking to them. I would absolutely stay here again and would highly recommend this Villa for others to enjoy.

A fabulous retreat - a pleasure to come "home!"

  • 5 of 5

The property was immaculately clean on arrival and also lovely and cool as the fans and air conditioning were already turned on. It was incredibly spacious, light, airy and well equipped - a perfect home from home. The location is great - very close to Disney and also on a well established gated community which is beautifully maintained and spotlessly clean. We loved the peace and quiet that it offered after busy days out in the surrounding area. Our favourite parts were the spacious pool area and the upstairs balcony which both overlooked the nature reserve. It was wonderful having breakfast on the balcony whilst watching the squirrels and exotic birds and listening to the frog chorus! The pool offered a good mix of sun and shade and was not overlooked at the back. We had a fantastic holiday and are very grateful to the owners for letting us stay in their lovely property. George (owner) and Linda (property manager) were very helpful and we are very happy to recommend this property. We were very sad to leave it!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for reviewing your stay in the home and for the kind comments on how you found the home in regards to cleanliness, temperature, space and peacefulness. I am delighted that you found my home manager Linda helpful and available if needed. She works very hard to ensure my guests receive the property in immaculate condition and that their stay is well managed, providing a welcome visit to check all is well with our guests the day after their arrival. As you say the home provides a welcome relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of a busy holiday in the Orlando area visiting the many attractions on offer. It's great to hear you enjoyed your stay and that you would recommend the home to future guests looking for a villa in the Disney area.

Excellent House and a great stay.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in numerous houses in this area and this was one of the nicest. It looked like the owner recently updated everything so everything was very up to date. Huge house with plenty of space for large groups. The owner is very responsive to emails ahead of your stay, during and after. Will stay here again.

Great Experience despite problems

  • 5 of 5

We visited central Florida to attend Sun N Fun airshow this April. There were 7 of us - all adult males. Some storms had hit the area the week of our arrival and had caused a number of problems. The pool heater was broken, the freezer was not functioning, 2 of the televisions were destroyed, a number of outlets weren't working. George was great about letting us know ahead of time that the pool heater was working. He had arranged prompt repairs prior to our arrival. However, the repairs weren't successful and left us without a heated pool and hot tub. He was very apologetic and refunded our pool heater fee. The management company also was very responsive and flexible, doing their best to fix all of the problems. An electrician and the pool people all came to the house within 2 days of our arrival to work on the issues.

The house is large and spacious, with lots of room. It is very well-kept. This review could have very easily been "fair" only because of the issues with the property, but they were all out of the control of the owner and management and everyone was very responsive and friendly through the whole weekend. I would definitely recommend this property to any families or medium-sized groups wanting to visit nearby attractions!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Unfortunately we did experience some problems due to an electrical storm causing a power surge to damage a number of electrical items shortly before the guests arrival. I am grateful to our guests for their complete understanding, patience and co-operation in accepting that the issues were to a large extent outside of our control. I am pleased that despite all of this the guests were able to enjoy their stay and found the accommodation overall to be of a well kept standard. We look forward to welcoming you back to our home on your next visit to the Orlando area.
