Fab Villa - Highly Recommended *****
Casa Blanca Villa was amazing from start to finish! Joan was great to deal with and communication was excellent. On arrival the villa was even better than the pictures and very clean. There was also some lovely personal touches to the villa that we just loved and it is decorated beautifully. During our stay we stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal and it just didn’t compare. The only negative thing I could say is that we had to leave!! But we will definitely return. Thank You

Villa was in a great location really close to Disney parks and just off the I-4 to Universal studios.
The villa was the best villa we have been at and have been going to Orlando now for 10 years.
Joan was a pleasure to deal with nothing was a bother to her any questions answered quickly.
Thank you very much for letting us rent your fantastic home. Looking forward to going back to villa Casa balance in the near future.

Great location, great villa and great villa. We totally recommend this villa, excellent. Can I just add that Joan is a pleasure to deal with even after your holiday, which is not always the case. Totally recommend Casa Blanca.

Awww Ronnie, thank you for this fantastic review of Casa Blanca! Especially since you probably have some jet lag still lol!

All the best to you and your family. Joan
Amazing place - Casa Blanca
We stayed at Casa Blanca in May 2019 and had an amazing time! It was our first time as a family visiting Florida and I had received recommendations to stay in a villa. I came across Joan's beautiful villa and really liked the modern decor and space. Joan was really responsive and provided us with lots of recommendations and tips during our stay. The whole process was seamless. The villa was so clean and spacious. We all absolutely loved it. It was great for children with the safety fence around the pool and our two young children loved the Mickey Mouse themed room! They are still talking about it now :)
It was great having our own pool and we also used the Club House pool and gym. The villa is located in a perfect location, not too far away from the parks and close to Championsgate. Hopefully we will return to this beautiful villa in the future. Thank you Joan for all your help, I would definitely recommend this villa to others.

Absolute Luxury - Casablanca
We stayed at Villa Casablanca in April 19 .
From the moment we made our enquiry the owner Joan was by far the best person we have dealt with , Joan is extremely efficient and helpful in her responses.
Casablanca villa is immaculate, modern and very spacious with no clutter !
We have stayed in many villas over the past 10 years about (15 ) and this villa is the best .
All of the bedrooms are large with the most wonderful beds. Every room in the house is furnished to a high standard.
We travelled with 2 young boys who spent most of their time in the pool which is not overlooked.
The location of the villa is close to Champions Gate where you can find many restaurants, we liked the Millers Ale House its great for families with good food. The interstate 4 is within 2 miles so getting out and about is easy.
I would like to say a big thank you to Joan for the use of this wonderful villa this really made our holiday and we hope to be back

Paradise at Casa Blanca
From the moment I first made an enquiry the owner this has been amazing. Extremely polite, efficient booking, lots of great information for places to go and that personal touch. As I had mentioned it was my 50th, when I arrived at this gorgeous home there were special gifts for me from them and the lovely Ivan, what a thoughtful touch. I cannot over estimate how perfect this villa is, this is our 6th visit in 10 years to Orlando and it is the nicest we have had, not only the decor and layout but the position for us was perfect. We were only a few miles from everything and the estate is very well kept too. You really won't go wrong if you stay here but leave a little gap for us to visit again!

March Break, 2019
The home is exactly as described, beautiful, comfortable and we loved our visit and we couldn’t have asked for nicer people to rent from. Joan was very helpful in our correspondence and gave us some great ideas where to eat. Best fish we ever had, sorry I can’t remember the name of the establishment but it was excellent. As I do love to cook a few extra mixing bowels would have been great, but then most people don’t cook too much on vacation. Definitely keeping all contact information in case our visit to Florida is sooner than expected. Not that far from attractions, great neighbourhood as well.

Hi Brenda, thanks for the lovely review and so glad you enjoyed the villa. This is my first review from a family from Canada - which is great! Nice to hear you had the best fish in Davenport - you'll need to go back to that restaurant the next time you visit. Will make sure I have more mixing bowls put into kitchen cupboards for you! Best, Joan

Stayed in Joan's wonderful villa for 3 weeks over Christmas and New Year and what a fabulous experience it was. The villa is amazing from the beautiful interior design to the lovely surrounding and easy access to all the parks and amenities. We were sorry to leave, everything was perfect in this house from the soft fluffy towels to the most comfy beds ever. The pool and spa were great and the children loved spending time in it. Thank you so much for allowing us the use of your fantastic home, we will definitely return.

Casa Blanca a little slice of heaven
The property and people dealing with it are sublime. Casa Blanca will not disappoint anyone wishing to stay on there vacation, everything described and in photos are 100% accurate and Joan the owner is always on hand and helped us a lot. The property is immaculate and everything works with high end furnishings and appliances. Ivan the manager is top notch any issues he’s fast to fix anything.

Wonderful Stay in FL!
We recently had a fantastic stay at "Casablanca!" The property is conveniently located in the Orlando area with a wealth of restaurants and attractions within easy access. The pool and outdoor setup was ideal for a relaxing few days in Florida. The house itself is extremely clean and beautiful. It was so nice to have everything we needed right there for us! We truly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to return. Thank you Joan!

5 star luxury
I stayed in Casa Blanca in July 2018 for the first time and quickly booked again for July 2019! Casa Blanca is the perfect villa for families and couples. The rooms are so modern and spacious and everything in and around the villa is looked after and in perfect condition.
The bedrooms and beds and so comfortable and the pool and jacuzzi are the perfect place to chill out.
The villa is in a perfect location - close to Disney and fabulous shops and restaurants. We really loved our holiday here and we cannot wait to go back!!! Thank you!

Thank you Heather for the lovely review and so pleased that you booked to stay in Casa Blanca again. There is a new addition of a Pool Table since your last visit - so enjoy! Thanks for mentioning the comfortable beds as that is something I think future guests like to know. Casa Blanca looks forward to your July visit. All the best and thanks again for the review, very much appreciated. x
We have stayed in various villas in Florida (6 different ones now). I stayed in this villa with my partner and two teenage daughters. This villa is by far the nicest we have stayed in so far. Attention to detail in every corner, every thing was spotlessly clean and tidy and had the homely touches. The kitchen is equipped and home from home with plenty of cutlery and plates. A nice touch was a basket full of fluffy pool towels just by the patio doors. All tv’s are smart tv’s and easy to log into Netflix (great for teenagers!). All in all a wonderful place to call home for two weeks. We honestly couldn’t fault it. The owner is a super lady too friendly approachable and cannot do enough for you. Amazing 5 stars we will be back ??

What a wonderful stay we had in "Casa Blanca!"
What a wonderful stay we had in "Casa Blanca"! This exceptional villa has been completely refurnished, painted and decorated throughout to an extremely high, luxurious standard, while still maintaining a comfortable, welcoming feeling.
The owner has described the place in detail - however, it's even better than the descriptions and photos! Jaw dropping as you enter. Every thought has been put into the furnishings and décor - everything you might need for a fabulous Florida vacation has been provided....from comfortable beds, to kitchen equipment, to fluffy bath and pool towels, many smart tvs and comfortable dining and seating areas, not to mention the wonderful outdoor pool and spa lanai, overlooking tranquil, landscaped gardens with an abundance of wildlife to see.
It has easy access to shops, restaurants, theme parks, and for the golfers, plenty of courses nearby.
AAAH! All good things come to an end, but we hope to be back soon!
