Haines City House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

There are so many Villas to choose from in Orlando, but what makes our Villa different from the others?

Usually the answer is location, location, location but with our home it is not only our location (only 15 minutes to Disney) but also crucially that our beautiful home is so private and not overlooked and is superbly luxurious!

The very last thing you need when you arrive at your dream holiday Villa full of expectation is to have another Villa backing directly on to you with the resulting lack of privacy and noise at all hours of the day from their Pool. That is what makes our home so special. There is NO house behind you, just our huge extended Deck, beautiful South Facing Pool, Spa, superb Gas BBQ, green area and we are only a minutes walk from beautiful Tower Lake.

We now have two Themed kids rooms (both twins). One is Sponge Bob and the other is Angry Birds and both look great! We have also added a Floor safe for your valuables (just in case!)

Add to this that we are located in a gated Community and you can see why Calabay Parc is so popular. Nothing but nothing compares to stepping from the downstairs Master on to our South Facing sun filled Deck before breakfast to have a quick swim and Jacuzzi to set you on your way for another great day in Orlando!! It truly has to be experienced to be believed!!

When you then consider the standard of our Management Team, the incredible list of equipment such as luxury solid oak furniture, 2 fabulous King beds, 8 T.V's including 50 inch LED with HD channels, Games Room with Pool Table, Air Hockey, and Foosball, Broadband Internet PC, Wi-Fi, Home Cinema System, Spa, stunning views, Gas BBQ, 3 DVD Players, Ceiling Fans throughout and the fact that we so close to all attractions, then you can see why the same guests return year after year. Imagine strolling out the front door of our house with the fishing rods we supply to take the kids fishing from our Calabay Parc's own private Boat Dock, you may even give the a real thrill by looking out for our resident Gator!!

So why don't you treat yourself to one of the top 5% Villas in Orlando at a very reasonable price....we want you and your family to have the vacation of a lifetime!

'The proof of the pudding is the eating' as we say in Ireland so here are just two of the countless Testimonials that we have received both from American, Canadian and U.K. families.

Hi there, Just a note to say thank you so much for the use of your villa, it was beautiful. We have been to Orlando several times before and this was by far the best we have ever had. It was exactly as described and more. Hope everything was okay when we left and when next we are coming to Florida, you can be sure we will be in touch. Thanks again. McKinnon Family, Dunblane, Scotland

Hello Ross, Thank you for sending my security deposit back so soon. Your house was everything you said it would be. We had a wonderful time there. I also have to tell you we needed some help with the pool. So we called your Manager and she fixed us up right away. She is excellent. Again thank you for a real nice place to stay. I will hopefully return in the near future. Thank you. The Noel Family, Penn, USA

About Ross Barry

I am a Financial Adviser based in Dublin, Ireland married to Linda with 3 kids Gavin, Keith & Bronwen. Apart from my Holiday Home letting (hobby!!), I like to play Golf, I fly small planes and I enjoy swimming and skiing.

Ross Barry purchased this house in 2005

Why Ross Barry chose Haines City

As a family we love Orlando. The climate, attractions and the cheap flying (one of my hobbies) made it a simple decision to buy there! Calabay Parc at Tower Lake is a stunning Community and out of all the choices available to me it was an easy decision with its fantastic views, huge space and the fact that it was so close to everything. We paid for a premium lot to give us complete privacy whilst also installing a Spa and Games Room all of which are items I would love to have myself if I was renting a Villa. In simple terms, I would expect a high standard if I was renting a house myself and that is the standard I give to our guests at Calabay Parc at Tower Lake!

What makes this house unique

I love the fact that every morning you can walk for two minutes to get to the boat dock at our Private Lake! In the evening, you can listen to the amazing chorus of frogs and crickets close to the lake. The whole house is so large and spacious with a massive Pool Deck. The spaciousness is fabulous and the house is so well designed that when I have to leave to travel back to Ireland to my home, I am missing it before I even leave!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a wonderful holiday home for our family. everything we needed And then some

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday. Lots of room to relax inside and out. The bedrooms were all a good size and two masters perfect. Lots of bathrooms! The games room in the garage was really enjoyed. Having a high hair and stroller there too was very helpful, less for us to haul down from Canada. A nice neighbourhood to walk around and always felt safe and secure

The owners were easy to work with and took care of all concerns responding in good time with the answers we needed

We will return!!

Great home

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and exactly what you see on the pictures. The location is perfect as well, only about 25 to 30minutes to the parks in Orlando and 20minutes to Legoland. Also there is a Walmart super close, where we did all the grocery shopping.

The management is really on top of things, one call is all it takes.

Overall the house was excellent.

We had a great time!

Thank you Ross and Becky for making our stay pleasant.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything it promised to be and so much more!! It was roomy clean comfortable and had everything you would need to enjoy your holiday. My kids were in the pool every day and every night! The bedrooms were spacious and wonderful. We traveled with ages 16 to 74 and everyone was equally comfortable and happy. We are all missing it already and are only home 2 days!!! I will definitely be contacting Mr. Barry again. He was a delight to deal with. Thank you for a great much needed family holiday!

Une belle maison pour une famille

  • 5 of 5

Nous étions un groupe de 7 personnes de Montréal dont trois enfants (11, 10 et 8 ans) et nous avons trouvé la maison spacieuse et bien équipée dans un secteur sécuritaire. Nous avons utilisé la piscine et le spa à chaque jour particulièrement en revenant des parcs d'attraction. Les enfants ont utilisé la salle de jeux. La distance des parcs de Disney était d'environ 20 à 30 minutes et celle pour Universal Studios de 10-15 minutes de plus. Le Wi-Fi fut très utile (voir le mot de passe dans le livre de bord et non sur le document de Ross). En résumé, je recommande cette maison; c'est une bonne valeur pour le prix.

Exceeded all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do the size of the house justice! The moment you walk in, in hits you how massive and beautiful the house really is. There was plenty of room for my crew of 7! We didn't use the gameroom much, but the fact it was there for us on a surprise rainy day as entertainment was a real lifesaver! The pool and spa were used almost daily, even after a full day at the theme parks thanks to the heating/lighting package. The patio grill was much used and enjoyed, but the days we didn't feel like cooking, there were several "eat out" options around the corner. Grocery store was a mere 2 mins away, and Hwy 27 is very conveniently located to the "attractions" area of Orlando. Wi-Fi and cable TV kept us connected to the world, with no issues. We will definately plan on staying here, should we ever vacation in central Florida. And let me say Ross, this ws one of the easiest and convenient bookings ever made on the VRBO site! Cheers!

Family vacation 2015

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 adults and 4 children (19,17,5,3) and a small dog, and we found there was more than enough space for us.The house was clean and beds were comfortable. We spent most of the time in the pool which was great for us because it wasn't more than 5 feet deep, which was perfect for the little ones .The house is conveniently located near groceries , restaurants and the hi-way for easy access to the disney parks . (Approx 25 min to magic kingdom)

We always felt safe in the community,the wifi was very fast (even with us all connected)

We were also very excited that there was a double and a single stroller for use. It was very much appreciated.

I would definately recommend the villa to anyone as it met all of our needs
