Home from Home
This is our 2nd consecutive holiday at this immaculate and inviting villa and it never disappointed. It has a very homely feel and gives you a great opportunity to unwind after an exciting, but exhausting day at the parks. Close to Disney, Seaworld and Universal Parks and just an hour drive to Busch Gardens. If you have a day off from the parks take advantage of the oversized pool and spa it really is a luxury just to simply step into.
We have stayed at other villas in the Orlando region, but nothing seems to compare to this. We are looking forward to booking our next trip at wouldn’t hesitate in returning to the Tuscan Ridge (Countryside) community and most definitely this villa.

Thank you for your kind comments. We are glad you enjoyed your second stay with us and look forward to seeing you again.
Delightful Home from Home Villa
This was our second visit in a row to this delightful villa. It was everything as we remembered and the reason for our return visit. This home offers spacious open plan living with a fabulous homely feel, just what you’re looking for after a hard day at the parks. The oversized pool is an asset which we utilised every chance possible.
It also has the attraction of being close to most of the theme parks, but far enough away to come home relax and unwind.
We have stayed at previous properties in the Orlando area, but this outshines all considerably. Nigel and June should be very proud of this stunning holiday home it certainly has captured our hearts and are looking forward to our next visit.

Glad to see our Management Company are looking after our home and maintaining it in the manner to which we expect for our guests. Hoping we can see you again in the future and thank you for your kind review.
We have just returned from our holiday in Florida and had a wonderful time. It made a bigger difference having a fantastic villa to stay in. It was by far the cleanest villa we have ever stayed in and everything you need in a villa. June was very informative and helpful.
I would like to say "Thank You" for giving us the opportunity to stay in you villa and I would highly recommend your villa to anyone.
Thank you June,

Thank you Debbie and Paul for your kind words. So glad to know our home was up to scratch and you enjoyed your holiday.
One of the best
Over the years we have stayed at numerous properties in Davenport and this one is certainly one of the best.
The location was ideal and the property was immaculate inside and out.
We enjoyed the pool and spa but due to inclement weather we didn't have the opportunity to make the best use of the facilities.
We would certainly recommend this property and we will return.
Thank you Nigel and June for letting us use your beautiful home.

So glad you enjoyed your stay in our home and that you appreciated the wonderful job our Management Company do in maintaining our home to the high standards we demand for all our guests. Sorry we couldn't do anything about the weather.
A Piece of Heaven.
Just got back from a wonderful 3 week break from this superb villa. It offered so much more than somewhere to get your head down after the parks. Each room was finished with good taste to make you feel you were home from home and after 3 weeks for accommodation to still have that appeal is very rare. When not at the busy parks the pool was such an added bonus especially the size and the surrounded deck was June and Nigel have everything covered, there wasn’t anything that the Villa couldn’t offer. It was spacious, modern, clean, well maintained and so inviting.
The neighbourhood was quiet and ideal location and access for the major attractions, at most only travelling 30 mins.
We certainly didn’t want to leave and would highly recommend.

Fifth Year At This Beautiful Home Away From Home!
We feel like we are returning home when we enter this beautiful Florida Villa. We love the home, pool , neighborhood and area. June and Nigel are so wonderful to rent from and they keep in touch to make sure everything is perfect for your stay. Sitting by the pool and soaking up the beautiful warm Florida sun is pure Heaven. The pool is larger than most in the neighborhood community and heated to a lovely 88 degrees. The spa is so relaxing too after a day at the parks or shopping. We have booked for our 6th year here and hoping we will be able to return for years to come God willing and June and Nigel still allowing us to return.

A Superb Holiday Home
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this excellent villa, it was very comfortable and clean. We have stayed in a few villas in florida but this was by far the best, it was spacious and had everything you needed and more. The villa was close to the US27 the192 and Champions Gate which was great for restaurants, shopping and of course Disney. June was great to deal with, we were well informed and we would like to thank them for a great holiday, and hope to stay again.

Hi Gillian Thank you for your lovely review of our home and thanks for taking care of it. Hope to see you again soon.
Great holiday villa at Tuscan Ridge
Fully met our expectations. Delighted when we arrived to find a lovely villa, nice and clean with lots of space. If travelling with children there are plenty of toys, high chair travel cot etc. We have stayed in villas many times in Florida and have always been fortunate to stay in a really nice one. Booking was simple and June was a pleasure to deal with. The location, just off US27, was ideal for disney parks, universal, shopping etc. No hesitation in recommending and would stay here again. Security deposit returned promptly when we got home. Thank you.

Thank you Linda for your lovely review. When we hear that people appreciate our home and would recommend it and stay again it makes all our hard work worthwhile. Whilst our Management Company maintain standards throughout the year we do the annual deep cleaning and redecorating ourselves during our autumn visit. Wish you could see it immediately after this. Would love to see you again. June & Nigel.
Wonderful holiday home
Villa was spotless and so well equipped. We were a party of 7 and had lots of space, never felt crowded. It's in a very quiet neighbourhood and has a lot of eating places and supermarkets nearby so you don't have to travel out again to eat at night. Great communication and info supplied. Sun hits the pool all day long. We had a lovely and relaxed week here. A lot of extras for kids included too. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

What a great villa
Id like to start by apologising for the delay in writing this review. It completely slipped my mind. What a fantastic villa. It has everything you may need and more. This was our first experience of renting a villa and it couldn't have gone smoother. Especially dealing with June. The villa was beautiful and very well cared for. We loved the pool and probably had more pool days than we thought we would because we felt so comfortable here. If we ever get the chance to go back we would def consider renting this villa again. Thanks so much.

Thank you Alan & Pamela for your lovely review. We are very please you enjoyed your stay and appreciated our and our Management Companies efforts to give you a great holiday. We do hope to see you again in the future. Arrive as guests, leave as friends, is our motto.
We had a fantastic stay in this beautiful villa spending many hours in the sun drenched pool and eating meals under the shade of the large lanai. The proximity of the home to the Disney and Universal parks is perfect; near enough to not have to travel far but just far enough away to escape the bustle after a busy day at the attractions. There is a Publix and a Walmart just down the road for any grocery shopping. We had the holiday of a lifetime and were sorry to leave Orlando and the stunning villa.

Thank you for this lovely review. You highlight the exact reasons we bought our villa in the first place. The large sunny pool, large shaded lanai, quiet location but with convenient, easy access to most attractions. It is wonderful to know that you as our guests enjoyed these features enough to compliment us on them. We appreciate your comments and the time you have taken to register them.
3rd year of Heaven On Earth!
This villa we now refer to as our Florida Winter Home. We live in Michigan and winters can be very cold and have a lot of snow. We are in our 60's and have both had health issues. This home is simply wonderful for us. We love the home for all it's luxuries and cleanliness. The pool has a rail for easement down the steps to the warm waters of the larger pool and the spa makes all those aches and pains go away. The home offers 2 separate ensuite master suites making it easy for 2 couples to share the home and yet have plenty of room. We would love to see another rail at the spa but putting a chair close by works out fine too. The owners are simply a joy to work with and I have found our Florida home for as long as the good Lord allows us to visit.

Hi Laura and Ron. Thank you so much for your lovely review of our home. We have also thought we could do with a rail for accessing the spa and do as you do with a chair. Thanks for the suggestion and we will look into it at our next vist.
Absolutely Beautiful Villa
Absolutely Beautiful Villa
This Villa is absolutely beautiful! The Pool area and hot tub is fabulous. The house and furniture is 5 star quality and everything is so clean and well cared for and there are lots of towels, linens and beach towels available. I would highly recommend this home to anyone travelling to the Orlando area. It was only 15 minutes to just about anywhere we wanted to visit. It was like a home away from home. It was so nice to come home to a relaxing swim in the pool each night and the kids loved it. Thanks again June and Nigel! We will be back!

Thank you Paula for your lovely comments on our home. So nice to know ours and our Management company's efforts are appreciated
What an amazing villa - the photos don't do it justice! Everything was large, clean, well stocked & perfectly laid out. Excellent size for 2 families to share. We found the villa easily. We couldn't believe how quiet & peaceful it was - just what you need after the bustle of Disney! We had several BBQ's but also ate at Longhorn Steak house - busy though! Beef O'Brady's is also pleasant! The villa is 20ish mins from Disney. We loved it, didn't want to come home & will definitely book to stay here again!

Thank you for your kind comments on our Florida home. We hope to see you again and as we are continually updating our home we hope you like our improvements.
Fabulous home did not want to leave.
Had a fabulous time, your villa is a virtual palace, kept spotlessly clean and well decorated. Better equipped than most five star hotels and the pool area, with its accompanying equipment is to die for. Had a tremendous time, unfortunately it came to an end far too soon. Managed to get around to seeing most of the places of interest that are within easy reach, a car is essential of course. Without doubt I shall be returning, thank you both so much.

My ideal villa
It's a fabulous villa! All the comforts of home and more - heated jacuzzi, airconditioning, swimmimg pool, more pans than you could possibly use and close to all the attractions and supermarkets. What better way to relax after a hectic day sightseeing than a drink by the pool followed by a lazy swim and a spell in the jacuzzi? Can't wait to do it all again!
