My Florida Villa


Read our Past Guests Comments

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for allowing us to rent your gorgeous villa for 3 weeks during August 2015. The rooms were very clean and spacious and there was plenty of storage space and more importantly there were plenty of hangers. The living room and Kitchen area are well proportioned and we liked the open plan layout of it and used the dining table often for lunch and dinner. Our daughters particularly liked the swimming pool which is a good size and with direct access through the master bedroom en-suite bathroom made it handy for when it was `shower time`. The depth at the shallow end of the pool was perfect for our 6 year old and with the rear of the house being south facing it meant sun all day long.

I had the opportunity of meeting with the local wildlife, namely `The Snake` whilst BBQing at the front which was a rare opportunity I shall never forget! but after finding out it is a harmless corn snake I was put more at ease. The location of the villa being so close to the Highway 27 was ideal and we much prefer being on the quieter and we fell nicer side of Disney and it was nice as a family to get away from Disney from time to time and see other areas and what they had to offer. All in all it was a brilliant 3 weeks of fun and laughter in the sun and the only problem is the holiday is now over! Thanks again I we will no doubt be in touch in future years.

Kind Regards Andrew W Derbyshire

All of my family want to thank you for allowing us to rent your villa for our holiday. It was so nice and handy for everywhere. We loved it. Some family members also rented a villa on the same site. Like us they were very near the gym and the communal pool. That became the meeting place for us all on several days. We did Universal again and that had altered in the 2 years since we last visited. We were all reluctant to leave last Friday but we had to. we will look to go again in 2017 we would like to get back to you again to see if your villa is free.

Thank you once again, Glenda Exton

Thanks again Maunder

Hi Gail and David Just got back yesterday and wanted to thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely villa. We all had a great time and only wish we’d had longer (like 6 weeks lol!).

Kind regards Julie Muckin

Hi Gail, Many thanks, We had a great holiday and your home was very convenient close to all the parks. We were out most of the time so didn’t benefit from the pool but found everything clean and tidy.

Mr S Daun

Thank you Gail and David so much we had a fantastic holiday.

We really made ourselves at home as soon as we arrived.

Your home is brilliant everything we needed was all right there for us. The pool was well used every day using the floodlights in the evening created a wonderful ambience for drinks on the patio area. Great to have the shaded area when the sun was strong and temperatures of 98! Your massive fridge freezer was well stocked as Publix Superstore was only 5 minutes away in the car. We ate at Applebee's a few times as that was near Publix. Mia pizza was next door to Publix and had a fabulous (and very cheap) takeaway one night. Bob Evans was another favourite and we tried the IHOP once for a gorgeous send off breakfast! The games room was brilliant and we had many games especially air hockey. The whole villa was just perfect fans in most rooms, refreshing air conditioning everywhere, vast HD tv with tons of channels, well equipped kitchen with everything we could possibly need, efficient washer and dryer etc etc. The gated community made us feel safe and the location was ideal for all the wonderful days out we enjoyed.

I would also like to add it has been a pleasure to receive your kind communications. We were very happy and honoured to stay in your lovely family home. We looked after it as if it was our own and I am already recommending it to close friends. We may not get out to Florida next year but when we do you will definitely Be hearing from us.

Very many thanks again

I would just like to wish you and your family – A BIG Thank You .......Thank you for letting us stay at your pretty villa, we had a blast. Kids did not want to leave, and all They kept saying is Mum what am i gonna do without the swimming pool wish we had one. Also, the boys loved the games room, You were right about Universal we loved especially Harry Potter amazing and surreal. Went to cocoa beach it was nice, but Miami was the fantastic . once again really appreciate all your help.

Take care, Mona London UK

An excellent stay and a wonderful villa we couldn't have asked for any more with the location and the weather. The PC was a godsend planning our trips, travelling to the shuttle landing and great for the kids keeping in touch with their friends at home.

Dear Gail, Thank you so much for letting us rent your villa. We had a great time! From the pool To the cleanliness of the place everything was great. The kids loved the villa especially with all the children friendly items (I will let you guess which rooms they picked for themselves). We will definitely think about your villa upon or next return.
