A luxury home from home
Had an amazing stay in this beautiful luxury villa for our holiday. We all had a wonderful time and no one wanted to come home.
We saw hot air balloons right over the house and were lucky enough to have a crane family with 2 adorable chicks visit us.
The villa was very comfortable and clean, and also very well equipped with everything that we needed. Free wifi and the best pool too!
We are all looking forward to our next visit.

If you want a wow moment ... this is the villa!
The photos really don't do the villa justice. It was so much bigger and better than we expected. A bit like a tardis! We had a wow moment as we walked through the front door and looked at the view in front of us. Not only is the villa lovely, but it's matched by what's around it. Lovely setting with loads of birds and wildlife to enjoy every day. We really did have everything that we needed for a fantastic vacation. Only 15 minutes to Disney, a spacious comfortable home with a touch of opulence, and a huge pool area with loads of loungers. The coloured lights in the pool at night were a nice touch too. We will be back .....

This is our favourite place to relax
We returned from our first visit last year, and immediately booked this years visit. We just love this villa, and it's our favourite place to relax and unwind. We've done the parks many times before, so now it's all about putting our feet up and enjoying the Florida sunshine .... This is the perfect home for that. It's lovely and quiet and the pool area is very private, both very important to us . We have also fallen in love with the family of Sandhill cranes that have visited us by the pool on both holidays. Just can't wait till next time!

Thank you so much for the lovely review. We hope to welcome you back to The Palms on your next visit to Orlando.
What can I say....The villa was fantastic! This has been our 6th trip to the Orlando area over the past 4 years and your villa has been our best find as of yet! We had everything we needed to make our vacation perfect! The villa was clean, spacious and well stocked. The villa is located in a gated community which was very quiet and safe. It is close to grocery stores and other amenities; and it is just a short drive off the highway. The owner, Ann, was a pleasure to deal with and very quick to respond to any issue whatsoever! Thank you Ann!! We will definitely rent from you again and recommend your villa to our friends!

Being such a well seasoned visitor to Florida, your review on our beautiful home is very much appreciated. Hope to have your family as our guests again soon.
This beautiful villa lived up to all my expectations. Very well situated for theme parks and close to shops. Villa is just lovely, tastefully decorated, lovely furnishings, very clean and spacious. Felt at home here, everything you can think of is provided for you. The pool area is fantastic. Large pool and deck area which the family loved. It was a pleasure to deal with the owner of this villa. The most comfortable beds, and fabulous games room. Very keen to return.

Fantastic Family Villa
Stayed for 12 nights in February 2014.
4 Adults & 1 child.
Villa is in fantastic condition, spacious even for Florida. Kitchen contained all the essentials plus many more items. Swimming pool was enormous and jacuzzi was great. What makes this villa stand apart from so many others is the attention to detail, and how well maintained the property is. On our next stay to the area we won't even consider another property as nothing comes close.

We are delighted to know that the villa exceeded your expectations, and look forward to hearing from you, when you're planning your next Florida adventure. Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review.
Look no further … this is ‘simply the best’.
We have been visiting Florida for over 20 years and have stayed in many villas but when we found this gem in 2004 we knew we’d hit the jackpot. We have stayed many times since. This is an amazing villa - it has everything. No photos can do it justice – it’s all you see and MORE !
The villa is bright, spacious and immaculately maintained. It is beautifully furnished and so well equipped – you will want for nothing. We especially love the fabulous pool and jacuzzi with a huge lanai for eating out or soaking up the sun from dawn til dusk. You can relax knowing you’re in a safe and secure gated environment. The location is perfect - only a short drive to shops, restaurants and all the tourist attractions.
What makes it special for us is that this is not just a villa – it’s a home. The owners have thought of everything - all the extras and personal touches really set it apart. We would highly recommend this exceptional home - the only negative is having to leave !
