Our return visit
We just had to return and spend our final 11 nights at this lovely villa after staying on Disney property for our first week (best of both worlds) like our first visit in 2017 it was the perfect place to kick back and chill out. Even though it's only minutes from the shops and restaurants on the 192 it's so quiet and tranquil by the lake watching the wildlife as the sun goes down. James the owner is excellent to deal with and makes the whole booking process so easy with a small deposit to secure your dates to providing all the info you need at final payment stage. Location couldn't be any better for Disney (minutes away) Universal, seaworld and a new water park H2O LIVE just opened 1 mile away!!!. Again very well maintained and spotlessly clean with a gorgeous pool and spa all to yourself made this home a highlight of our holiday, that's why we returned...and will again hopefully soon
Date of stay: May 2019

Oct 18 oak island stay
Booked with james who I found most helpful throughout the booking process , nothing was too much trouble for him and also replied very promptly
Excellent directions to the villa
The villa was beautiful overlooking the lake and within a few mins of the 192 highway which takes you to Disney/ main highway to other attractions and shopping
The villa had everything we needed and was spotlessly clean , also plenty of space for our party of 5 to enjoy we loved the pool and Jacuzzi after a day out and the beds were very comfy
Definitely a family friendly villa
We would definitely recommend this villa and would return ourselves in the future

Thank you so much Jacqueline - I do hope that you will return very soon. I am so glad that you and your family had such a great holiday.
This was our second visit and the villa is exactly as described. It is in a quiet residential location and all the rooms are beautifully decorated and so well equipped, you are wanting for nothing. There is a supermarket close by if you want to prepare your own meals but we ate at the local eateries. Breakfast at Ponderosa (~5 minutes away) evening meals at TGI Fridays, Sizzlers and Denny’s are all within 10 minutes drive.
Most of our time was spent in the theme parks, Walt Disney World is so close. I could get to the Animal Kingdom car parks in 10 minutes from the villa and Magic Kingdom in 20 minutes. When the parks got too busy or the weather changed we would return to the villa where my grand children spent time in the beautiful pool or in the games room, they loved both.
James is a pleasure to deal with, nothing is too much trouble. He even allowed us a late check out as our flight back to the UK was not until the evening and there was no one checking into the villa until later in the following week… thank you James.
If you’re planning an Orlando vacation I would recommend this villa without hesitation, we love this place and have a lot of happy memories from both of our visits.

It's always good to welcome back returning visitors and I am delighted that you enjoyed another great holiday. I hope that it won't be too long before you are able to come back.
We returned home from this beautiful villa last month. The villa was lovely and clean in a fantastic location and easy to find. It was home away from home and was very well equipped.
James and his wife was on hand from booking right through to returning home to answer any queries and nothing was too much trouble.
I would most definitely recommend this villa for two main reasons firstly because it was very homely and secondly for the lovely personal touches that made it such a comfortable stress free holiday. we are already talking about returning in the future.
Thank you so much for letting us stay

Thank you for a wonderful review. As soon as you are ready to return, please let me know - you would be especially welcome!
Wonderful 2 Week Holiday Here
When we arrived the Villa was spotlessly clean with all the home from home amenities. The master bedroom had a massive bed that was extremely comfortable. My husband can sleep anywhere but I don't normally sleep well other than my own bed but it was so comfy which was a huge plus for me. The pool area had a great view of the lake but sadly we never got to make use of the pool due to the weather being bad during our stay which was such a shame as it looked great. The villa layout is great also as we were downstairs and my daughter had her own bedroom and bathroom upstairs, so had her own space too.
We had everything we needed and were able to relax after the busy parks.
One major plus also is the location, it is so near to Disney and the I4 for Universal and for Kennedy Space Centre. This villa is in the best spot so near to the parks but in a quiet tranquil location. We had a couple of minor issues during our stay, one being a small hornets nest near the porch which had appeared during our stay. I contacted James via email and immediately he contacted Andy the agent over there and got it sorted later that same day. Talk about fast response, we were very impressed.
Thanks James our stay was fantastic and your prompt action showed that nothing is too much trouble and it was good to know you are very conscientious to making sure anyone who stays at your lovely villa does not need to worry about anything.
We would definitely return.
Thanks The Bevan Family

I am so glad you and your family had a great time and thank you so much for the wonderful review. I hope to welcome you back very soon.
We have just returned from a 19 night stay at this villa, and we honestly can't thank James enough for letting us stay at this fabulous villa. We have stayed in other villas before but this is by far the best villa we have stayed in. The pool has a beautiful view over looking a lake, so peaceful and quiet yet so close to Disney. It was spotlessly clean with beautiful decor. The garage had been turned into a games room which was great for the kids. Once again thank you James for letting us stay here and for being so prompt in dealing with any queries we had, we definitely want stay here on our next visit to Orlando.

What a wonderful review! Thank you so much. I am looking forward to welcoming you back in 2019.
Have just returned from a 10 night stay, this was my second visit to the villa and I shall be returning . The location couldn't be better - literally 5 minutes to the animal kingdom resort , and supermarkets and restaurants on the doorstep . One thing that is important to me when I look at villas is what it overlooks - many pools face a brick wall or back onto someone else's pool offering no privacy - this villa is round a picturesque lake and although there are several villas round the lake we didn't feel like we were sharing it - it felt really private.
On the inside it is very spacious, light and airy, I could tell it was well looked after - it was very clean and tidy.
James the owner always answered my emails straight away and it was good to know that if there was a problem I could contact him and he would sort it straight away- I imagine this might not be the case with a lot of other owners.

This beautiful luxury villa couldn't be better placed for the restaurants and shops on HW192 and genuinely minutes away from Disney! Yet situated on a tranquil lake with stunning sunrises/sunsets. James the owner was a great help from the initial booking with advice and tips and an info sheet with all phone numbers and directions you need making this a very pleasant and proffesional booking. Spotless clean and equipped with everything you could need and more! The gorgeous pool and Jacuzzi was an ideal place to watch the sunsets (and fireworks) can't wait to return

Thank you so much Mike and Sarah. See you both again very soon, I hope.
Fantastic holiday home
We stayed in this holiday villa in April 2017 and I can quite honestly say it was the best place we have ever stayed. From making initial contact with James, right through the booking process, up until we arrived, and even during our stay, James was the nicest person you could ever deal with, professional, friendly helpful and very understanding and accommodating. The villa is beautiful, spotless, roomy and comfortable, the pool was fabulous and was enjoyed by all of us every day. Location too was excellent, just a short drive to the parks but in a lovely, quiet location. I would recommend this villa to anybody considering a self-catering holiday in this area. I am just sorry it took so long for me to get around to writing this review. Many thanks to James.

We have been going to Orlando for 14 years, always in villas, always have pool heating, what ever time of year, this is only the 2nd pool we have found that does not take your breath away when you get in.
Timed the journey to the Disney arch on World Drive, at 3pm, took 8 minutes, never been closer. Hope to book again in the future. Would recommend

Thank you Colin - I hope to welcome you back very soon.
You wont get anything better than this!!
We can't thank James enough for letting us stay her, we had to abandon our first trip 24 hours before arrival 2 years ago & we had amazing help from the owners regarding this.
So we re-booked & can honestly say it was an amazing villa!
We've stayed in 4 other villas in the past 8 years & nothing comes close to this, it has everything you need for a holiday in Orlando, the location was spot on 4 minutes in the car from the villa to Animal Kingdom. 25 minutes to Universal Studios. 1 hour to Tampa.
It was easy to find & close to the shops, the malls & all the parks.
It was spotless on arrival with an amazing view over the lake by the pool.
We could see fireworks from the pool to around 10pm every night.
All the rooms are spacious with great air-conditioning through out the home.
Its equipped with everything a family would need for a holiday, its the small touches that's in this home that make it better than others we've stayed in.
Brilliant WIFI which is always welcome, the kitchen was equipped more than we have back home.
Thank you soo much we had a wonderful holiday at your beautiful villa fingers crossed we will be back next year as we wont want to stay anywhere else. The owners are an absolute pleasure to deal with.
Book it as you wont regret it ;)

Thank you so much Alison and Nick. It was a pleasure having you stay ay our Villa and we hope to see you again very soon.
We have stayed in this property before and again we were not disappointed. We were dealt with by James who was very professional and helpful and made you feel really welcome at his home.
The villa was very clean and well maintained before our arrival so we felt very relaxed as soon as we got there.
The games room was fantastic! The best pool table we have ever used within a villa, it makes such a difference to be able to play a game of pool without all the balls running around the place!! The outside area was a pleasure with lots of shade if needed but also plenty of sunshine too and the pool was fantastic as it was heated and it was a pleasure to use. We had a great view of the lake and the fireworks on a night, an amazing sight to see! We also saw some great wildlife and even met the local raccoon! All in all a fantastic place and I would highly recommend. We will be definitely be returning to this villa.

The perfect home
Spent 2 weeks in this home
From first contact with James everything was carried out promptly and with ease
The home is exactly as shown only better more spcious and with loads of little touches that made our stay a joy
My favourite part was the feeling of total privacy and i cant not mention the view from the deck over the lake it is truly stunning especially as the sun rises
The pool snd spa were a god send and lovely to soak away the aches of busy park visits
The home is minutes from disney parks and its proximity to formosa village was great for a meal out only a 15 min easy stroll
A big thank you to James and Angela and we will be in touch in 2017 be sure of it

Excellent Family Holiday Home
A lovely spacious holiday home that felt as much a family home as a holiday rental. The living area is huge and open plan - plenty big enough to fit a large family. The master bedroom is also very big with a good-sized en suite. The pool provided us with hours of fun and there are plenty of amenities within very easy reach. Would recommend without hesitation.

We, group of four adults, recently (Sept/Oct 2013) stayed in George and Christine's villa. From opening the front door we were impressed. The villa had lovely furnishings and artwork and everything in the kitchen you would need. Very good location and relaxing view over the lake. We would definitely stay again. We arrived after a cruise and it was a lovely end to our stay in Orlando

As a family of 4 we have stayed at this villa on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The owners are very helpful and ensure that you have all the details prior to your arrival. On arrival the villa and pool area is spotlessly clean and very welcoming. The lake view is fantastic with lots of wildlife. The villa is well maintained and has everything you could possibly need for a great vacation.

Maybe we will meet sometime John & Liz, after all, only missed you by 10 days this time! Glad you had a good time and thank you once again!!
Just book it!!
If you are thinking about it, don't, just book it!! When we arrived the villa was spotlessly clean, the side lights were on, which was very welcoming. We have stayed around this area before and know the location is perfect. You are so near to everything, but far enough to chill out in the peace and quiet.
This is not like a rental home, it has all the little touches of someone who lives here, so it has such a nice feel to it. The view of the lake from the pool is just beautiful.
The fishing was lovely, the pool was wonderful, we even did some bike riding, the villa could not have been better. The late check out, because no one was going in that day, was fantastic! it just finished the holiday off. There was no extra charge for the late check out, which some do!
Don't delay! book today! with confidence you will have a great stay.

We'll Be Back!!! (Add appropriate Austrian accent)
What a fabulous place to spend our holiday, we are familiar with both the area and location but were pleasantly surprised with your villa. Light and spacious but with lots of extra personal touches that made it feel more homely not quite so much a holiday rental. When we arrived the villa had been beautifully prepared and obviously very well cleaned. As the pool overlooks the lake and has trees around it you feel secluded and private enough to wander round in your swimsuit all day!
This villa is in a great location, far enough from the main road but close enough to all the facilities on Highway 192 so you don't have to travel far to eat or shop. Disney is very close especially if you use the secret back route along Sherberth Road.
George sent us friendly emails with advice and tips before we went and even called us to make sure everything was ok during our stay. Thank you George and Chris, you are so lucky to have such a beautiful villa, we really enjoyed our stay. We will definitely be back and would not hesitate in recommending your home to anybody.

Second stay at this property within the last 2 years and the standard is higher again,The house itself is very spacious and has lots of high quality fittings,the pool and lania area is just great,backing onto a lake with breath taking views its the best way to relax after a hard day at the parks.
Located quite close are numerous restaurants,shops etc, I must recommend The Red Lobster and Applebees and Tropical Rain Forest at Downtown Disney for dining, they were excellent.
People say that going to Orlando is not relaxing,it is when you are staying in property like thisand we have been many times.

We stayed in this Villa in August 2009. It was the perfect location in Florida, we were only 10 minutes away from most of the parks and attractions but it is in a great residential area so on the days that you want to chill it is great for that to. The fishing in the Lake the Villa is on was great and all the equipment comes included free at the Villa. George and Chris also rang while we were staying to make sure everything was ok and to see if there was anything they could do which was a nice touch. It is close to lots of great restaurants and also it is really close to a lot of the Oulet Centres for people who want to go shopping. Cant recommend this Villa highly enough!!
