The perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was absolutely perfect! Julie was very helpfull prior to our visit, she answered every email very quick and did everything she could to make us feel home! The villa was very clean and well-maintained, that couldn't be better. Everything that we needed was there for our family with young children; a stroller, high chair, babybed, safetyfence for the swimming pool etc... The pool was relaxing and we used it every day after our visits to Disney, Seaworld etc. The location was absolutely perfect! It was a 15 min drive to Disney and 20 min to Seaworld. We would recommend this property to our friends and relatives and we really hope to come back some time...... Just looking at the house on a picture, brings back so many nice memmories, that it makes me wanna cry that we had to leave. Thank you so much for sharing your house with us, Julie!!

Scrupulously clean well kept accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Scrupulously clean house and pool, very comfortable living quarters, perfect for Disney world, couldn't be closer, universal studios not that far either. Supermarket, publix, conveniently 2 minutes away. Home from home, owners extremely helpful and professional, would highly recommend.

Spacious home and lives up to its description

  • 5 of 5

We booked the villa for 10 nights for a base to do the usual theme park trips. It is well placed for Disney, etc, but a bit further for the Universal ones. The villa is well laid out with large bedrooms (two with en suite), and was very clean and well equipped - pool, games area with pool table, etc, washing machine and tumble dryer, 3.5 bathrooms, tvs in most rooms, etc. The pool is not huge (eg if you want to do lengths!), but for our kids it was great and especially so with the heat in August in Florida and they spent a lot of time in it. We had great customer service before booking the stay, and the instructions in the villa were clear as to what do if we had a problem (we didn't). Yes I would recommend it to a friend or relative.

Fantastic Villa and Fantastic Owners

  • 5 of 5

From the start of our booking Julie was very helpful and very kind to us and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. The villa is as lovely in real life as it is in the pictures, it was very clean and homely and was a real pleasure to stay at and made our holiday perfect. Whilst we was out there we contacted Julie and she was very happy to help us and this just shows how the after care is excellent as well.

We would definately recommend this villa to anyone and would like to thank Julie for the whole overall experience.

Joy Villa - A perfect holiday home

  • 5 of 5

This place is exactly as described. A beautifully well cared for holiday villa estate with lots of similar looking properties making it so American to us British people. Our daughter Emma likened it to Desperate Housewives Wisteria Lane!

The villa was immaculately clean, well maintained and ready for our arrival. More towels, flannels and bedclothes in the cupboards than you can ever wish to use. The pool was great for me and Emma to do an hours 'keep fit' morning swim, and for all of us to chill out after a long days theme parking.

Laundry (we were there for 3 weeks) was made simple with a huge washing machine and separate tumble drier.

It's a 3 or 4 minute drive to the nearest Publix Supermarket where there is also a Liquor Store and Fast Food Restaurants. Our favourite was Dunking Donuts on the opposite side of the road for breakfast.

Another 3 or 4 minutes down the road is a second Publix and a fabulous Chillis Restaurant which we wished we could have had a second visit to, but we ran out of time!

The Disney Parks were no more than 10 minutes away with Seaworld and MGM Studios around 20 - 25 minutes drivae away. The I4 is practically on the doorstep making it easy to travel wherever you want.

The highlight of our holiday was Discovery Cove and swimming with

dolphins. It isn't cheap, but worth every penny, especially when the family are celebrating 20th, 50th and 60th birthdays in the same year.

Julie Saliba was most helpful from my initial enquiry about the property - which was nearly 18 months before we went - up until the very end of our stay. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a quality place to stay.

Florida Getaway

We found Joy Villa all that we expected from the info given. The location was ideal for Orlando and the Theme Parks and shopping facilities and Restaurants were all within easy reach of Sandy Ridge.

The property was ideal for all the family with ages ranging from 11years to 70 years. The decor was superb and the villa very clean and well maintained and we would certainly recommend it as a base to enjoy your Florida holiday.
