First class villa
Had a lovely stay in this first class villa. It was clean and well equipped with everything you need, cups, glasses, plates, towels etc, And even plug adapters. The pool area was great, plenty of seating and the poolside toilet was ideal. family members spent time in the games room and we even went for a few bike rides on the bikes.
Brilliant location, with supermarkets and restaurants 5 minutes away, very easy to find, directions were stop on and easy to follow. Correspondence With the owners was very good.
Having stayed in quite a few different villas over the years, this villa is one of the best, and would not hesitate to stay here again.

First class Villa
The Villa was excellent, we really enjoyed our staying there! There is plenty of room, it`s in good condition and location is fantastic: peaceful secured area, everything you need is nearby (Gatorland, Space Center, Universal, Disney, Medieval Times, Old Town (Night cruise of old cars…), outlets, walmart and many other places. Every night we spended lot of time in pool area (Certainly pool heating was a good choice). The owners are great and easy to deal with and answer all questions quickly. That was a big deal for us: When You book and pay your accommodation in internet, it`s very important that owner seems to be reliable, as it really is in this case. It was just an unforgetable christmas for our family! We would highly recommend this to all of our friends in Finland! Tämä Villa on erinomainen, ja perheemme todella nautti olostaan siellä. Runsaasti tilaa, asunto on erinomaisessa kunnossa ja sijainti on loistava: rauhallinen vartioitu alue, kaikki mitä lomalla tarvitsee on lähellä (Gatorland, Space Center, Universal, Disney, Medieval Times, Vanha kaupunki(jonka vanhojen autojen cruising kannattaa ehdottomasti nähdä…), outlet-myymälöitä, Walmart ynnä muuta. Vietimme joka ilta paljon aikaa viihtyisällä allasalueella. Altaan lämmitys kannattaa ottaa talviaikaan. Omistajien kanssa on asioiden hoito helppoa: he vastaavat nopeasti kyselyihin ja tiedusteluihin. Tämä oli meille ensiarvoisen tärkeää: kun asuntoa varaa ja maksaa netin kautta, on vuokraajien luotettavuudella iso merkitys: Tässä tapauksessa kaikki piti mitä oli luvattu. Unohtumaton joulu perheellemme, suosittelemme lämpimästi tätä, mikäli suunnittelette matkaa Orlandon suuntaan! Pasi & family (Kirsi, Kari, Kati, Krista, Kalle) from Finland

A Wonderful relaxing Villa
We have just returned from a 2 week stay at this beautiful villa. As well as being a great place to relax after busy days at the parks it has everything you could need for your stay. A real home from home. Close to all amenities and not to far from all the usual Disney and Universal attractions. Any problems are fixed very promptly without disruption to your stay and the lady that manages the property was very nice and easy to get hold of. The children loved the pool and was a wonderful bonus after long hot days!. We will be back to stay next time we return to Orlando. Thank you for letting us stay in your great villa!

May we start by saying what pleasure it was to in your beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated villa, the attention to detail was suppurb, and fully equipped with everything you could think of. A lot money and time has been spent on making this to our mind the best villa we have stayed in by far, and we have been in many others. Anyone contemplating renting a villa look no further, in a secure gated community 6 mins drive to wallmart on the famous 192 . Well done Peter and Karen and thankyou for making a wonderfull holiday even more special.

The owners are great to deal with and answer any query ( no matter how small) quickly. A lot of extras have been thoughtfully provided and we found the sat nav to be a great help.

We have been travelling to Florida for the last 25 years and have stayed in many Villa's over the years, we stayed here in 2012 and every time we have traveled since then we have tried to book this Villa, we were lucky this year and managed to get booked. We love this Villa for many reasons, it is safe, secure and very peaceful with with wonderful walks, I think we have seen all the wildlife that Florida has to offer. Karen and Peter Make you feel that their home is your home, when we walked in, it's just the little things that make you feel welcome, like the Xmas tree with the lights on and the Xmas decorations, it is luxurious it has everything a family needs from the inviting warm pool and spa to the best cable TV you can have, it has enough kitchen utensils and crockery you will ever need, and a games room to keep you all entertained, unlike other Villa's this Villa is very well maintained the Villa is extremely clean and the pool is serviced weekly. Our children (all grown up now) drive to the parks in 20 minutes, it's less than 5 minutes drive to a super Wall mart and 5 minutes drive to a Super Target and numerous restaurants within a 5 Minute drive. We can not recommend this Villa enough, We will return. The Mowat Family, Dalgety Bay, Scotland.

Beautiful villa in a good location
We had a wonderful stay at Peter & Karen's beautiful villa. It was very well equipped with everything you could possibly need and was a perfect base for the Disney parks, with the furthest Disney park only being about 15-20 minutes. It was a lovely location, nice and peaceful too. The pool was amazing and our girls absolutely loved it and just wanted to go in that every day!
We had the best holiday and would highly recommend to stay in their villa, which we thought was also very reasonably priced.

Wir hatten diese wunderschöne Villa mit 8 Personen für 10 Tage bewohnt. Die Villa war genauso schön, wie auf den Fotos. Man hatte alles was man sich nur denken kann. Wunderschöne Einrichtungen. Die Küche war komplett mit allem was man brauch eingerichtet. Die beiden Schlafzimmer waren mit Badezimmer und begehbaren Kleiderschränken ausgestattet, so dass man sich direkt umziehen konnte. Die Betten waren super bequem. Jedes Detail mit Liebe hergerichtet. Super Pool mit Whirlpool. Das Haus ist mit einer Alarmanlage ausgestattet, so dass man sich immer sicher fühlen konnte. Wenn wir wieder nach Orlando kommen sollten, werden wir sicher wieder dieses Haus buchen. Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt und ich vermisse es sehr. Vielen Dank an Familie Harris, dass wir unsere Zeit in Ihrem Haus verbringen durften, dass sie so liebevoll eingerichtet haben. Wir werden bestimmt wiederkommen.

Bright welcoming property.
8 Feb 2017
The Villa was of an exceptional standard, clean bright and beautifully maintained. We were a family of 7, three couples and one child. The house was easily able to cope with our number and also able to give us private space as individual couples. The facilities were exceptional from the fully equiped laundry to the heated pool and jaccuzi. The two large bedrooms had huge beds and his and hers split bathrooms. The two double bed rooms had a joint bathroom and were ideal for our family of three. Bathrooms were complete with fluffy towels and dressing gowns. The social areas were spacious luxurious and very well equiped from the kitchen/breakfast room with its large american fridge, pristine cooker and waste disposal and the lovely high ceiling lounge with its leather suite and entertainment centre. We were able to play table tennis and pool in the large well lit garage and walk within the estate around the green public area. Whilst relaxing on the patio one day two large grey heron like birds walked stately past the mesh security netting, what a delight. The property is within easy travel of all local ameneties such as Disney off International Drive, Kissemmee and Orlando and yet in an exclusive private setting. I would recommend this property most highly and we would have no hesitation going back.

Wekiva Dream Villa
We have stayed in a few villas in our time and this is by far the nicest. Upon arrival it was spotless and decorated to a high standard. The little touches of the towels and tea towels made into swans was a lovely feature. The pool area was clean, tidy and had plenty of chairs and beds. The hot tub was a bonus. We loved that it has two master bedrooms. This villa lacks nothing. The games room was used on a few occasions to wind down after a hectic day. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to family and friends. Any problems we had were dealt with straightaway by the management company. From booking to the holiday the owners were very helpful and quick to respond to questions. All information received was easy to understand and helpful.

Luxury villa in a secure and peaceful setting.
From the moment we stepped in to this beautiful villa we were delighted with all the facilities it had to offer. It was spotlessly clean and well maintained both inside and out. It is conveniently situated for all the Disney parks and very accessible from the airport which is very welcome especially after a long flight. All the linen is provided and there was an abundance of beautiful white towels for indoors, waffle bath robes in both master bedrooms and also beach towels for swimming. The master bedrooms and en-suites were spacious and the beds very comfortable. My Grandson particularly loved what he called the' Disney Bedroom!' The villa is well stocked with televisions, cd players and Xbox etc. for those who have any energy left after a day 'doing' Disney. My family just wanted to swim, whereas I loved to put my tired body in to the Jacuzzi and lap up the last rays of the sun. We had occasion to call out the managing agents because of a bleeping alarm which required a new battery and the response for this was superb, the same day and included a polite little note explaining what had been done. We loved the peace, quiet and security of the gated development and would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation to out friends or to use it again when we return. Thank you Peter and Karen for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. Best wishes, Nikki and family

17 Day Stay, Feb 2016
We have just got back from 17 days in Florida, and had a lovely time at this villa. From the initial contact, all communications were excellent, and were given good, detailed instructions. As soon as we arrived, we knew that we were going to enjoy it there. With Florida villas, it's quite easy to tell which ones just have the basic minimum, and aren't particularly well looked after, and those which are cared for and well maintained. This is clearly one of the latter. Everything was well looked after and everything worked properly. Alan, the guy from the management company was friendly and helpful, and sorted a minor problem out quickly and efficiently. The villa itself is beautiful - especially the view from the the balcony of the upstairs master bedroom. The villa is south facing, meaning you get the sun for most of the day, and often, you get a beautiful sunset, behind the trees - even better from the upstairs balcony. The location is also good, especially if you are travelling towards Sea World, Universal, or International Drive, as you can avoid the bottleneck on I-4 between exits 64 and 68. It's also close to a Wal-Mart, Old Town and the Kissimmee Clearance centre (essential if you like cheap Nike or Converse stuff), and you don't pay the premium that the villas that advertise themselves as "5 mins from Disney" (usually not true!) do. We hope to go back in 2018, and if we do, this will be the first on our list. Our security deposit was paid back promptly. Thanks again for a lovely stay, and we're already looking forward to going back!

A great retreat from the hustle and bustle
Perfectly located for easy access to all of the main attractions this villa ticked all the boxes for us. Situated close to the 192 and all the amenities it has to offer it was never an effort to go out and find something to eat or something to do. It was also close enough that when we had had enough in the parks it was only a short drive back to the sanctuary of the pool and jacuzzi. It is also plenty big enough for 2 families, offering space for all with various activities to keep the young ones entertained while the older ones are getting ready for a day or night out. We enjoyed our time here so much we have already booked for next year.

We have been vacationing in Orlando for many years and this is by far the most beautiful villa with every possible luxury, to make it the perfect holiday experience. It is the most gorgeous spacious home, beautifully decorated throughout with two huge master suites with luxury bathrooms (upstairs has a balcony whilst the other opens onto the beautiful pool area) as well as two additional twin bedrooms and lovely spacious living / kitchen areas and a great sky deck (complete with Xbox). The games room downstairs is fabulous too. This villa is excellently situated within a private gated very quiet community with beautiful lake walks and backing onto woodland. It is only a short drive to the parks and has many restaurants, supermarkets and some great crazy golf all close by. If you are looking for peace, tranquillity and luxury as well as easy access to all the parks and shopping malls / outlets, this is definitely the place to make it the perfect holiday.

Magnificent Vacation Property
Wekiva villa is excellently situated for access to the main Orlando parks (20 mins to Universal for example) yet situated in a private, gated, estate providing a restful home after all the days running around. The owners have provided everything one could possibly need to make your stay as perfect as you could wish for. The garage is stocked with activities and there are sufficient electronic amusements for those teenagers missing their Xbox/Wii etc. back at home. The home is very clean and furnished to a fabulous standard - I would hazard a guess that you will struggle to find better in any holiday villa in the area.
Owners provide excellent directions so finding the villa is nice and easy after a long flight from the UK.
Plenty of restaurants a few minutes drive away, but the kitchen is excellent and we found home catering a simple and enjoyable option.
Have come away feeling really relaxed and kids wanting to return. Always a good sign!

Getting there and getting in hassle free with the instructions given.

The website views of this amazing villa were extremely accurate and brought a gasp of delight from all of us upon arrival. The accommodation itself was pristine as was the bed linen and towels. The property is very well appointed for both attractions and shopping (which we did a great deal of)! The beautiful pool offered a private and relaxing end to many busy days and there was a wide range of games/activities to keep my 9 year old grandson entertained.
The two minor "maintenance" issues we had were dealt with promptly and pleasantly by the manangement company.
A favourite restaurant was Manny's Chophouse which is about a 30 min drive but well worth a visit (used by many locals of the area) situated on US Highway 27. Would highly recommend this villa and hopefully we'll be returning soon.

A home away from home
The villa is in an excellent location, close enough to visit all the theme parks yet just far enough away from the main bustle to relax. The villa is situated in a quiet gated community, safe for the kids to go and explore the area.
We found the villa easily using the directions provided and upon arrival there is a folder full of useful information ranging from villa info/telephone numbers to places to visit etc.
Unlike many other villas, the pool area is not overlooked. We enjoyed many evenings relaxing by the pool under the covered lanai area to recover from the tiring days spent at the theme parks.
We choose this villa because the 2 identical master bedrooms would save any family arguments about who had the better bedroom. We were not disappointed. The beds are huge! And the en-suite bathrooms are vast (my entire bathroom is probably the same size as the walk-in shower at the villa!)
The villa has lots of different areas to sit/eat, so with 5 adults and 2 children we never felt on top of each other.
The sat nav came in very handy. Whilst we were there we took a trip down to Miami Beach and spent a night there (well worth the travel) and the next morning went to the Everglades before popping into Key Largo to sample some Key Lime Pie before heading back to the villa. It is an exhausting trip and should have spent 2 nights in Miami Beach but we were running out of time. We also took a trip to Daytona Beach and the Kennedy Space Centre. The highlight of our holiday was swimming with manatees in the Crystal River (some of the money goes towards manatee conservation efforts).
All in all, a fantastic holiday with a great villa as a base. My only regret is that we did not have more time to spend relaxing by the pool.
