Thank you Dave for the use of your beautiful home. It was very inviting, very clean, and very spacious. We all enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Everything in the home worked great. Beds slept good and everyone was very comfortable. It was close to the parks which was nice. I look forward to the opportunity to rent this home in the future and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to vacation in a comfortable and safe setting. Thanks again.

Thank you David for the use of your lovely home. Although we were 9 adults and 1 infant, there was enough room for everyone to have plenty of space for themselves. My family had a wonderful time. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to visit Orlando. The house is very clean and quite comfortable. The kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms are all well-equipped and had everything one would need so we only had to go to the supermarket for food. The heated pool/spa were enjoyed by all. The location was ideal and close to all attractions and restaurants. The Clubhouse is very nice and the people who work there were very helpful. Lastly, David is a pleasure to work with. I had several questions upon arrival at the house and when I contacted David, he immediately got back to me with answers. We would definitely rent this home again.

Holiday Gathering was GREAT!!

  • 5 of 5

Brief! Family gathering for Christmas and New Year’s, very pleased overall. Six adults, three kids, all had plenty of space, and the pool was a big hit, especially for those coming from very cold climates. House was immaculate, well-furnished and comfortable. Laundry facilities especially appreciated, with three boys. Loved the neighborhood feel, and the nearby park. Great for walks, general relaxation after the hectic holidays. David was very easy to reach and helpful with questions, minor issues. Useful to know what is covered by the resort office, and what to count on with the house management group. Very quick response from the latter to replace missing plunger, CO monitor batteries. All in all, a winner!

We had such an unforrgettable experience staying at David's house! The ease in working with him to book the stay first of all should never go unnoticed - David was great. There were five children and four adults and we stayed for 12 days and 11 nights. We were able to balance relaxation at the house, 5 days at Disney, and three days at Universal. It was perfect. If we thought the heat and parks were getting to us, we took a day off and spent it at the house, in the pool and cooked out. This was all that was needed to get going the next day. The house is well well kept and so comfortable. The kids slept upstairs and the adults took the two kings on the first floor. Having a pool and a spa at the house right out back was a highlight that made this trip unforgettable. Every room - all the bedrooms, the bathrooms, the kitchen, the living room, and the screened in patio out back gave everyone plenty of room to relax in different spots and didn't feel at all like we were on top of each other. We all had such a good time and like I said the house made the trip unforgettable. Thanks David - you will definitely be hearing from us again!

what a great family holiday. This was the ideal family villa with plenty of space for six adults and four children.

Each bedroom had plenty of room and large beds for all. Cupboard and draw space of plenty and for that wish

to hang up their clothing, plenty of hangers. Found the villa all very clean and tidy for our arrival. There was extra bedding and plenty of towels for our stay, wash towels as well as pool towels. Enough pool furniture for all around the pool with a couple of tables as well. Our thanks for our hosts, I hope we will return again in the future
