Great villa, superb location
This is a fantastic villa. It’s clean, the pool is great with a cracking view of the lake. Spent a lovely afternoon sun bathing and watching the birds on the lake.
Super close to the 192, this has an abundance of places to eat and supermarkets to boot. You’re truly less than 10 mins from Disney.
We’ve stayed in Orlando a lot and deliberately picked this villa as it’s handy for everything! It made a great base and allowed us to pop in and out if the parks throughout the day - it was great taking a break for a few hours and dipping in the pool before being able to return to the parks for the fireworks.
Samantha and Adrian were so helpful and answered any email we sent almost instantly.
The only thing to note (and this is not necessarily a bad thing) is that the villa is not stocked at all with any bits you may need. Eg there is no washing powder, washing up liquid, coffee, salt and pepper, oils etc. Nothing at all except soap in the bathrooms. We didn’t mind nipping to the nearby Walmart but might be annoying to have to do this if you’ve got kids and you’ve arrived later in the day.
PS tap water in Florida is drinkable but tastes not very nice. I’d recommend bringing those squash shots (useful for the parks water fountains too!)
Definitely recommended as a great base for your Florida vacation
This well furnished home provides everything a family needs and is situated in a great spot on a quiet estate / sub-division.
Good sized pool area with well placed bushes to provide all the privacy you need, but without blocking the light.
Easy drive along the 192 to Walt Disney World, or up the I4 to Universal Studios Orlando if that's your thing.
There's nothing better than coming back to your own space after a busy day shopping or enjoying the theme parks.
Great location nice villa comfortable and roomy plenty of golf courses near sunset lakes which we d
Would recommend and would definitely return
Lovely property, great location
This has been our second holiday to Florida, first time in this villa. Its great, perfect location as you feel away from the hussle and bussle but its only a very short drive into Disney which is always a good thing! Great facilities in the villa like the lunch boxes and pool floats. Villa looks good, modern bathrooms etc. We really enjoyed our stay.
We’ve just arrived back from our second stay in Sam and Adrian’s villa - and it probably won’t be long until our third! As per my previous review, there really is nothing to fault with this villa - you especially can’t beat waking up to the view of that lake! You literally can’t beat having Sam and Adrian as owners too - nothing is ever too much and they reply to any questions straight away. I would not hesitate in recommending this villa (as we often do!) to anybody! Thanks again guys! Nikki and Jack x
Disappointing stay, not all relaxing as we'd hoped, as too many maintenance issues and poor attitude
We had booked the Villa for a 7 night stay at the end of trip hoping to have a relaxed and chilled last week. However this was not to be as there were lots of niggles and issues in the villa which meant the maintenance team were coming and going.
On arrival we were encouraged the property was clean and tidy, however it wasnt long before little niggles started appearing
Whilst we acknowledge the issues were quickly acted upon, what was frustrating was that the communication to us was poor.
One day when we came home from the theme parks hoping to relax and chill by the pool, only to find the maintenance guy in the villa without our knowledge. He'd even locked us out so we had to stand knocking to get in! He did leave at his suggestion as could see we were surprised, but we then got accused of sending him away, all rather unpleasant.
The issues were all minor and were frustratingly things which should have been picked up before we rented the villa, this was even commented upon by their own maintenance man, as they included many lightbulbs out (and with the clocks changing it was dark early), clocks all wrong, plus damaged pool screen in more than one area (this resulted in us getting eaten alive as we sat out thinking we were protected - not nice at all)
The bigger issues were:
- a damaged and dangerous sunbed (never replaced during our stay) which one of us fell through,
- Broken parasol, this could only be left up once we found a way to tie it up, after it fell on our head when trying to open
-grubby/dirty sunbed cushions which the owners told us they felt they were perfectly OK as outdoor items
One of the more concerning incidents was when we came home one day to find the property completely UNLOCKED. The maintenance team had visited that day as one of the things being checked was the front door lock which must have a problem as it doesn't seem to lock properly.
Thankfully nothing had been taken or damaged but it was very disconcerting and we never felt properly safe or secure. The maintenance team didnt even call us back as promised to advise what had happened which was very disappointing.
If you choose to stay here its clean but be sure to realise that the whilst the bathrooms have been refitted and are nice and modern the remainder of the property is showing its age.
Also the owners dont seem very unhappy to receive any criticism of the place or their communications I was even sworn at during a call I made which was not nice and sad
Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We don't usually respond to reviews as we like to let our guests have their say. However we feel your review contains inaccuracies that we need to address (we had of course already discussed all issues with you during your stay).
Your comments in relation to security (you accidentally left the door unlocked, not our management company (MC)) and the pool umbrella (our MC guy lowered the umbrella on to his head when showing you how it works) have been written up incorrectly, which is puzzling to us. To confirm, the front door lock has been checked and there is no issue with it.
Cleanliness. Thank you for acknowledging the cleanliness of the villa, this is critical to us and our guests.
Speedy resolution of issues. Thank you for mentioning how quickly issues were dealt with. It’s important to us that any issues that do arise are fixed. We encourage our guests to raise any issues during their stay, no matter how minor. Our MC made three visits to help make your stay more enjoyable. (You also mentioned to us how nice the MC people are which is great to hear.)
Light bulbs. You reported two being out, these were changed the next day. A further bulb then went which was also changed.
Clocks. You arrived on the day the clocks changed. You told us the time on the microwave and cooker clocks had already been changed when you arrived. Changing the kitchen wall clock requires a step ladder and for, insurance purposes, our cleaners are unable to do this. Our MC changed this clock on their first visit.
Pool screen. You reported a tear in one pool screen, this was repaired the next day. Days later you said the screen was still torn. Your husband checked and confirmed it had been repaired.
Sunbed. A section of the frame broke as you sat on it and was taken away for repair. You and your husband had the other three sunbeds to use during your stay. The sunbed cushions are high quality and comfortable, however like any sunbed, they live outside and are at the mercy of the weather.
We had a long call during which I referred to 'bl**dy light bulbs', a comment I immediately retracted and for which I apologised. You did not apologise for using the same term.
Unfortunately, despite the efforts of ourselves and our MC, you were unhappy with aspects of your stay. This is disappointing as we want our guests to enjoy their time at our villa. However please be assured that we have taken your comments on board.
