We have a family of 3 kids my husband and there grandparents we had more than enough space and the villa was a home from home. The owners are lovely honest and thoughtful people and have been exstreamly helpful myself and family would strongly recommend booking this gorgeous holiday home we are certainly glad we did and had an amazing time
Spent 18 nights in this beautiful home in February, house was extremely clean, had everything you would have in your own home and more. Kitchen and dining room table were all set up with everything from placemats to wine glasses.
The house felt so comfortable and was so easy to keep clean. Beds were comfy, bathrooms were spotless, tons of towels. Living room had 3 comfy couches and a sliding door to the pool, and the screened in patio, had the doors open every day except for the one day it rained. Table and chairs on the patio and lounge chairs. Even though we didn't use the pool (not a pool person) but if you did use it, there I s an outside door to one of the bathrooms so you wouldn't need to walk thru the house wet, the owners thought of everything.
House is in a quiet residential area, my niece went out jogging the days she visited us and felt very safe.. House backs up to a conservation area so no houses behind it so lots of quiet and privacy.
The owners, Jonathan is great, so friendly and helpful, you can tell from his emails that he wants the renters to enjoy the home as much as he and his family does and for them to feel like they are in their own home.
Can't say enough good things about this home, are already planning to come back next year and staying longer, when we left we felt like we were leaving our house and not a rental. If you and your family are coming to Orlando, you can't pick a better place to stay and for less than many hotel rooms you have a private house and your own pool.
There was only one previous review of this property so we really felt like we were taking a massive gamble booking it. However once we got in contact with the owners and exchanged emails, it very quickly became apparent that not only were they genuine but that they were also very proud of their home. This really eased our concerns and let us concentrate on planning the other aspects of our holiday.
On arrival even though it was dark, access was simple. The remainder of the first evening was spent following my open-mouthed wife as she did the tour of the house and then picking her jaw up off the floor when I opened up the blinds to reveal the pool (I had told her a week before that we were destined for Florida but had kept our accommodation a secret). The villa itself was so much bigger than expected and was spotless throughout. As the previous reviewer stated, it really does have a homely feel to it but of course is much, much better than home. It also really has everything you could want and more in the way of household amenities.
The location of the villa was perfect too. The development is close to Orlando yet far enough out to feel like you're in the countryside. This will mean nothing to Americans but when you're from Northern Europe it's a real treat to see all the animal life we saw, in and around the development (not in the villa), eagles, hawks, numerous other coloured birds, lizards, raccoon's and an armadillo.
It's just a couple of minutes from a large supermarket. Also just a few minutes to the I4 that leads to Orlando and of course the theme parks.
Our holiday was fairly action packed between parks and drives etc but the couple of days we spent relaxing in and around the pool at the villa were as memorable as anything we did in Florida.
In summary I loved the villa and its location and would definitely recommend it to anyone coming to Florida.
My wife on the other hand loved the villa and would gladly move here tomorrow, with or without me!!!!!

The house was amazing!! It was beyond our expectations and truly felt like home.
After a fun and exciting day at the theme park, the children would get excited again, when hearing it was time to go home.
The villa had something for everyone. You can relax in the spa whilst the children play in the games room. The vast collection of DVDs meant the kids were entertained for hours.
The rooms are so spacious, each fitted with a luxurious wardrobe and dressing table. It was brilliant! There's fully functioning AC and fan. And when it gets cold, you can turn up he heating.
It was a lovely experience!!
