Reviews for this vacation villa rental in Orlando, Florida

Great villa for families; we especially appreciated the pool and all the pool toys. Very clean and well-maintained property, within easy driving distance of all the major theme parks.

Excellent Stay at Holiday By Disney
July 29, 2015
This Villa was perfect for our family vacation. We shared the Villa with one other family. We had 4 adults and 4 children present. We had plenty of space and privacy and yet enjoyed the company of one another. The kids loved the spacious house and the pool. We loved the convenient location that the Villa was to all the surrounding parks as well as downtown Orlanda. We actually had the opportunity to drive to each coast and visit 2 separate beaches as well, which were only an hour away from each side of Florida. Great location, clean, friendly environment and I would recommend this to anyone.
Our wonderful stay!!
June 18, 2015
Thanks so much!! We really enjoyed our stay in your wonderful home. Our Disney trip was great and the kids loved it. We really appreciated being able to rent your nice home to stay in for our trip:)

We just returned from a week long visit to Florida during our kids' spring break. The "Holiday by Disney" house was absolutely wonderful and located in a centrally located place, which made getting to all of our excursions easy. The house itself was nicely decorated and appointed with everything we needed for the week. The kids loved the pool and all the toys provided. The adults loved the patio and the sun. Two thumbs up and five stars! We would definitely stay here again.
Great Florida Vacation Rental
April 9, 2015
The house was exactly as described and pictured. Everything was clean and well maintained. We had no problems at all during our stay. I especially liked having our own pool right outside the door. The central Florida location made traveling from one coast to the other very do-able. Disney was a 10 -15 minute drive. The kids loved it and we would stay here again.

The entire family had a wonderful time in this clean, well furnished, villa in central Fla. It is close to Disney and Lego Land which was great for 3 of the 4 grandchildren (youngest is 21 mos) Swimming pool was a great plus as well as the game room.
January 24, 2015
the house was perfect for our family of 9, 7 adults and 2 toddlers. The community was about 15 minutes outside disney which was what we were looking for not in the middle of the hustle and bustle! We rented the use of the grill and had dinners at the house before going back to the parks. Full kitchen for all meals, game room excellent to use for downtime. LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!! Definitely will use this property again!'
Perfect family place while at Disney
November 10, 2014
This was a perfect place for our family Disney get-away. Our kids could unwind after a long day at Disney with their own space and the amenities were wonderful for the family. The home was very clean and well planned with plenty of space for our brood. It was wonderful for even two families or family with grandparents since the home has two master bedrooms. The owner was very kind and even called during our trip to make sure we had everything we needed. Would definitely stay again!!

Orlando family vacation
July 18, 2014
We'd like to thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Lavell for the opportunity of allowing us in your villa for our 1st family vacation to Orlando. It was quite a drive from Houston to Orlando but once we were there, the stay was great! We enjoyed evey bit of it. Being able to relax in the pool after all the walking at the parks was great! We visited Universal Studios, Central Florida zoo, Legoland and Cocoa Beach and the location worked out well. Would visit again!

A great place
June 10, 2014
We stayed for two weeks with six adults and a baby. The unit was more then we expected. The house is well maintained, clean and has everything you would need. Close to shopping and a short drive to downtown Orlando. There was a washer and dryer, baby stuff and game consoles just to name a few things. The pool was serviced each week. No issues and would go back again.

This home was absolutely beautiful.Very clean and the fact that we didn't have to bring our own sheets and towels was great when it came time to pack.Beds were super cozy and the kids had a blast in the pool.

Our family of 5, which included 2 teenage boys, had a wonderful time here in this villa. Very roomy where everyone had space to relax. The screened in pool area was wonderful with the evening sun. This place was great to relax in after a long day at the amusement parks. Only 20 minutes away from Universal Studios and about 10 minutes to Disney Parks. The villa is close to shopping (Target) which makes getting the items you need for the week very convenient. If I get to Florida again I would definitely stay at this villa!

Great House, Great Location!!
April 11, 2014
This house was absolutely perfect! My family of 4 along with my best friend and her family all stayed in this house while visiting Disney/Universal/LEGOLAND during our Spring Break. The house was very accommodating for the 8 of us and the kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool and game room! It is within easy access to all the parks with just a couple of minutes to I-4. It had everything we needed for the week including a VERY generous amount of towels ~ sometimes it's the little things! When asking my 7yr old his favorite part of our vacation he says "The House!!!". It will probably be years before we make it back to Florida but will definitely stay here again! You will not be disappointed!
Nice place for a family vacation
April 5, 2014
Our family of four had plenty of room (even an extra bedroom we didn't use) in this very clean well maintained villa. Good supply of cooking items, towels etc. Quiet neighborhood. Nice pool area gets plenty of sunshine! Houses are close together so not lots of privacy outside but didn't seem to be an issue. Close grocery store for shopping. A 20 minute or so drive into Orlando but a nice get away from the hustle and bustle of a day at an amusement park. A short half hour drive in the oposite direction gets you to Lakeland to enjoy a Detroit Tiger's preseason baseball game! Owners were great to work with even gave us a call to make sure we were satisfied. Overall a very good place.

Awesome Family Vacation
March 10, 2014
Situated in a quiet friendly neighborhood, we love your Florida home and we have enjoyed it a lot. Kids and grown up loved going in the heated pool every day...we wanted to , visit the Disney parks, Seaworld and get away from our cold winter and we did. Once at the house, everything was clean and in good working conditions, beds were comfortables. The 3 bathrooms sure made it easy as we were 5 adults and 3 kids, lots of towels and even beach towels for the pool.It was our 1st time in renting a home away from home and with your step by step instructions of rules and renting agreements, it sure made it very easy to follow. Love being able to use the BBQ and the kids thank you for the goggle and pool items. Will be recommending it to other family members and friends. Thanks again Bernie and Carol for making this a great family vacation.

Our recent stay in your lovely villa was so enjoyable and central to all that Disney and the area had to offer! Though we did not opt to have the pool heated, we were still able to use it for a few wonderful sunny days! Your villa provided all that we needed and then some. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. When we decide to come to the area again, we will definitely check with you for availability!

We really enjoyed staying at your home. The initial booking went without a hitch. When we arrived everything was as advertised, very clean and well appointed. The location is great being close to Disneyland, SeaWorld etc. etc. Our grandson really enjoyed the pool. Overall a very positive and excellent experience. Thank you.

Family Week of Fun
December 4, 2013
This unit is very comfortable in a very nice community. We had no trouble getting into the unit the owner kept us informed through the whole process. The home was very comfortable for 10 people. The pool is very clean and there where several pool toys for the kids. The game area in the garage kept kids busy every night after a day at Disney. Easy to get to the Magic Kingdom or Downtown Disney.

We were so pleased with our house rental near Orlando. The home was well equipped for all,including a toddler. Looking for a house to rent , and then corresponding with the owners Bernie and Carole was easy. We are so glad we chose this home. It definitely was our home away from home!

Had a wonderful time in this beautiful, well-maintained, clean & cozy villa! It is located in a nice, quiet neighborhood - the perfect place to relax. We really enjoyed the spaciousness of the dining room/living room area. The outdoor swimming pool would have been fun to use, but unfortunately we didn't get to use it because of our late night stays at the Disney World parks. Would definitely like to return here!
Best vacation Ever!!!!
August 29, 2013
This was my first time renting a private home for vacation and renting this villa was the best decision I ever made!! It had everything I needed : cold AC, nice pool, spacious for my family (we have 5 kids and traveled with both of our mothers! !) , close to EVERYTHING Shopping, restaurants, Disney world ....EVERYTHING! !!!! Bernie and Carol were awesome they were always available for questions/ concerns they were very accommodating. My husband and kids all thanked me for choosing such a great home we will DEFINITELY stay here again and I recommend this house 100%. Choosing a vacation home can be so overwhelming but I did not regret anything about this home I got my deposit back on time also!. Between the pool and the game room I could have skipped Disney World and the kids would not have noticed! The neighborhood is very nice. Even the property management company were very efficient. THANKS AGAIN BERNIE AND CAROL!! Confirm Your Review
A relaxing haven
August 11, 2013
We have enjoyed three wonderful weeks in this villa. It is located far enough away from the crowded areas to be peaceful and relaxing, and at the same time close enough to the parks and all the fun. Having this house, with lots of room, a private pool and all the amenities we need has made this vacation much more enjoyable than if we'd stay at a hotel. If something needs to be fixed Fairways is just a phonecall away. Renting a house from a private owner can be risky, but we assure you that Carol and Bernie genuinely will do all they can to assure you will have a wonderful stay at their villa.
Wonderfull Villa Thank you
February 19, 2013
We spent a lovely 2 weeks in this home. It was well equipped for relaxation, cooking and fun. The pool, toys and game room were enjoyed by all. It was very clean and in order. The location was great for Disney World and other attractions. We found all our shopping needs were just minutes away. Our ages ranged from 5 to 77 years and all 8 of us were very comfortable. The owners were very helpful and thier care really shows. This home is an excellent value

Just like Home
February 5, 2013
What a wonderful vacation my family and I had at Holiday by Disney. There were 9 of us total with childrens ages ranging from 6 months to 16 years old. There was so much for the kids to do that you would not even know we had such a full house! The house was in excellent condition and had everything we needed there, even items for our infant. The description and photos of the house were right on the mark. The location was so close to everything we wanted to do on our trip and information was available in the villa to help us find anything we needed, too many conveniences to even mention. All in all we felt very comfortable and at home in this villa, it was also great to receive a personal phone call from the owners to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay and that the house was in order. It was so easy to reserve and such a pleasure to deal with Carol and Bernie! Not a single hesitation in recommending that you give this place a try!!!
November 13, 2012
Never been to Florida before and only started looking a few weeks prior to departure. We had a number of options and chose this villa based on size, description/appearance on photos and distance from Disney as this was to be our focus. Initial response and all further correspondence was very prompt and helpful. We took a courtesy tel call the day of arrival direct from the owner to check that everything was to our satisfaction. An invitation was extended to contact the owner or agent at any time - this was never needed. In summary, the villa was exactly as advertised and better! The location is perfect for Disney 15mins, Tampa Bay 1hr 10 Kennedy Space Centre 1 hr 30. The accommodation was great and the games room was a real hit with our children. All in all a very lucky find that we can highly recommend.

very nice and clean vacation home
August 28, 2012
My family and I stayed at this home for our Disney Vacation, the first thing I noticed on entering the home was how clean everything looked and smelled. The home is very spacious and full of amenities my boys enjoyed. We also loved the screened in pool. I will definitely call Bernie to stay here again at our next Florida vacation.
Houston, TX USA
August 20, 2012
House is great and within minutes of all the parks. Right in the middle of Clearwater and Cocoa Beach. Both my cousin's and my family enjoyed the home. It was a total of 9 of us and we were more comfortable than we would have been at any Hotel. This was our first time renting a home instead of staying at a Hotel and it looks like we will be taking this route whenever possible. Will definitely recommend to anyone I know who is planning a vacation in Florida.
Thanks for the review Jus. You are right that we are centrally located to the parks as well as either coast. It is only a short drive to the Gulf coast in Clearwater or the Atlantic Coast in Cocoa Beach. Either side allows for a great day at the beach without having to stay overnight.

June 1, 2012
We were very pleased with our accommodations and the surrounding area. The pool was very nice and we had the vacation of peace and quiet that we were looking for. We would not hesitate to rent this villa again in the future. It is an especially great place for a large family to use as the rent is very reasonable and the 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms are fantastic! Well worth the price.

Great place for our family
May 7, 2012
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this home for our vacation. It was very clean and just like the photographs depict. After busy days at the theme parks, we enjoyed leaving the crowds and coming home to the pool and spending some quiet time with our children .With six people in our family, this home suited our needs very well. We had plenty of space and the floor plan worked out great. Our two girls, ages 10 and 13, decided to share the room with the XBox in it, and our little boys ages 2 & 4 loved the "Mickey" room. Having three bathrooms was exceptionally nice so that we could get ready and shower in much less time than sharing one bath in a hotel. I really appreciated having clean clothes when we got home! We took care of the home as if it were our own. We set out the trash on Wednesday night, used the recycle bin, and washed and put away most of the towels before we left. We also appreciated was the security system to the back doors leading to the pool since we have small children. Another reason we chose this villa was because we needed two strollers. We brought one with us and also used the one provided. That, coupled with the washer and dryer, allowed us to pack lighter than we normally would have had we stayed in a hotel. We purchased groceries at the Publix which was less than 3 miles away. We appreciated being able to pack our lunches to take with us into the parks. There were plenty of lines, dishes, and cookware. During the week, someone came and cleaned the pool and mowed the lawn. This property is clearly well-maintained. We will definitely try to book this property the next time we travel to Orlando!

Thank you we had a fantastic time :) the house was great the housekeeping is great and you have thought of all of the items people require on vacation . I cleaned up until 950 so hopefully the crew was happy with our departure. I left them a tip as we couldn't have been happier with the accommodations . My husband is already talking about rebooking next year for a longer stay. Thank you so much Shelley

Excellent villa to rent
March 5, 2012
The best way to describe our stay at this Florida villa is ...would we stay again - ABSOLUTELY. Would we recommend this villa to your friends --DEFINITELY. This house has every thing you could want while on your vacation. We simply brought in our own food and clothes and started our vacation immediately. We invited our daughter, son-in-law and two grand kids to join us and we had ample space to accommodate everyone.. With four bedrooms (6 beds) and three bathrooms, everyone had space to enjoy a great vacation. And after swimming in the screen-enclosed pool we continued the fun in the games room and played some billiards (pooi), air hocky and foosball. The villa is located in a very attractive residential area with similar beautiful homes and located only a few miles from highway #27 and Haines City for shopping and dining. We had a wonderful vacation. You will too.
central Florida Family holiday
February 7, 2012
This was a great house to stay in during our stay in Central Florida. Four adults with 5 kids under 12yrs, we had lots of room and space for our needs. The pool was invaluable and the extra $ for pool heat was well spent. Clean, comfortable and central location in a quiet neighborhood made this a great central location from which to see much of Central Florida. The owners and managers where very easy to talk with and flexible to our needs. We recomend this house to anyone looking for a quiet refudge in the Orlando area.

We so enjoyed our month vacation at your “Beautiful Villa” a home away from home. The villa was so very comfortable, well- maintained and well-equipped with everything. The new flooring and furniture is lovely and is very easily maintained. Much care given to quality and detail. The location of the villa in a quiet subdivision is perfectly located for all the Disney Parks 15-20 minute drive without getting into heavy traffic. Shopping was close by or a quiet drive in the opposite direction to Haines City or Winter Haven area for more great shopping. Restaurants were close by also. The heated pool was great for our son Jamie. He so enjoyed it as we all did. Bernie and Carol you have done a wonderful job of providing a beautiful home for vacationers – we certainly are recommending your home to everyone for their Florida vacation.. Thanks again for making our Florida vacation so memorable. “The Lyons” Paris Ontario
Great place to stay!
December 7, 2011
Our family had a wonderful stay at your villa. The house was the perfect place to unwind after a long day at the parks. The kids loved the pool, the kid-friendly bedrooms, and the game room. We appreciated that there were stores nearby and that we could make breakfast in the morning thanks to all the cooking utensils and large fridge. The local pizza shop (which delivers) was wonderful and inexpensive too! A huge thank you to the owners, Bernie & Carol, for making the rental process so easy, for the quick refund of our deposit, and for letting us stay in a place that made our vacation such fun for us!
September 18, 2011
Our first family trip to Orlando was made much more enjoyable by staying at this villa! It was only about 5 minutes from the interstate, and just a few exits from the Disneyworld exit which made it very convenient. A personal call from Bernie our first night there really made us feel welcome, and more like we were staying at a friend's house than a rental. Overall, it was a great experience. Returning from a long day of sightseeing to this lovely home made this our best vacation ever. The kids loved the pool so much we barely even got into the game room. My husband got to do all the cooking he wanted with the kitchen full of utensils. For me, being able to come home with clean laundry was great. I couldn't believe it when we all came home feeling relaxed and refreshed, not exhausted as was normal post-vacation! New flooring arrived the day we left, so we can't wait to see updated photos once the remodel is done. As nice as it was when we were there, it'll be even better once the new flooring is installed. We all definitely recommend this villa, and can't wait to go back!

We had an awesome stay in the home! We are planning to return in a couple years and will definitly be returning to Holiday by Disney's villa. The kids loved the pool and game room. It was a nice place to come back to and relax after walking around Disney World all day.

Thanks for making it so wonderful!!! Drew, Sheila, Dylan, & Derek

Wonderful 2 Family Vacation!
March 21, 2011
Hi Carol and Bernie!! Words truly cannot describe your property~~very inviting and had all the comforts of home included. We did not need to worry about a thing! We thoroughly enjoyed the games room and the pool!! The weather was beyond unbelieveable (mid 80's all week) and made driving through a blizzard to get to the border on the 11th, bareable! You are very centrally located with easy access to everything. The binder that you provide for all your guests is full of great information and highly recommended for all guests. Considering it was March break for us in Ontario, the subdivision and surrounding ones, were very quiet. We are already talking of renting again next year, but for 2 weeks this time!! Thanks again for a wonderful property for us to vacation in!!

Hi Bernie & Carol, I just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time at your villa! The villa is very comfortable, well equipped, and the pool and game room were very enjoyable. I loved the fact that it is conveniently located to the parks, restaurants and beach. Thank you for being so helpful through out the entire process. We definately hope to stay at your villa again!
March 1, 2011
Hi Bernie and Carol, We are back in chilly Saskatchewan and wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our holiday at your villa. The location was away fro the crowds and it was like staying in the country, especially when the Sand Cranes wandered through the yard on their morning rounds. The grand kids, who are 5 and 7, thought they were amazing. The quiet neighbourhood made for a relaxing retreat to come home to after a crazy day of exploring the parks. The heated pool got lots of use as the grand kids were in it every day. Their parents loved the fact that they did not have to pack up and go down to a hotel pool with them. We were all right their to keep an eye on them and get supper ready as well. They said that the house was the best part of their vacation! Thanks again for this terrific experience and we will certainly recommend your villa to everyone.

My family and I traveled to Disney for Christmas this year. Renting this villa was the best choice. Very kid friendly for those whom are traveling with children, clean and very well equiped with all the necessary kitchen needs. Truely a home away from home. Quiet area to relax after the busy day's. Pool is wonderful and warm. Prefect place to stay!
November 1, 2010
We think the best of the villa and will recommend it to our friends, for sure.
October 16, 2010
Thank you for the wonderful villa and excellent service. The place was just as represented in pictures and spotless! Clean is important because we have a baby crawling around and no worries in that department! The baby equipment was useful, the kids loved the game room and we all loved the pool. Bernie was even gracious enough to call and check on us during the week to make sure all was well - a very nice touch. Wonderful experience all around! Thank you for a wonderful vacation stay!

Absolutely loved the Villa. More importantly my wife and kids loved it. Location was perfect, right off I-4, could get to every location we needed to. It was very clean and quiet. I especially appreciate the integrity/honesty in how you run your business. What you said was how it turned out, no surprises or extra fees. I also, appreciate the fast return of my security deposit as well. Will definitely stay here again.

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your villa. You have done a wonderful job of proviidng a comfortable, spacious and well-equiped "home" for a vacation. It was awesome to come in after a long, hot day, and hit the pool for a bit before retiiring for the night. I can't think of anything that you could do to make it better. I don't know if we'll be taking another vaction in the Orlando area, but if we do, we will give strong consideration to staying at your villa again.

Vacation to remember
August 2, 2010
Well, my family and I were looking for a place to enjoy our vacation while in Orlando, Florida together under one roof (there was 8 of us). We found just that with this beautiful villa. Pictures do not do this villa justice. It was a home that was welcoming and cozy. Our children enjoyed every minute of the pool and games room as well as us adults. The travel time to the parks was no more than 15 minutes. Overall, we had a wonderful time and would come back again. Thank You Bernie and Carol for making our vacation one to remember.

Bernie and Carol are very nice people to deal with.The area was close to everything yet quiet. The pool area was very peaceful. The bedrooms were set up to where everyone had their own privacy. We enjoyed our stay.

We stayed at Holiday by Disney for our family vacation and it was absolutely wonderful. Bernie and Carol Lavell were so easy to work with. The home is very clean and the pool and game room were great!!! I would absolutely recommend renting this one!!! Thanks Bernie!!!

We had a fantastic time! The villa was everything that was promised and it was easy to find. Our three girls loved their bedrooms, the game room and pool. I was worried about sleeping in a different bed but the master bed was very comfortable. After being caught in the rain at Animal Kingdom and having very wet sneakers, we all agreed renting the villa was the best choice we could have made as we had full use of the dryer! We had hardly no meltdowns because each child had their own space - I cannot imagine ever renting a hotel. Disney was a blast! Because of our obsessive (anal?) planning, the girls experienced every ride they wanted to, and multiple times. We had breakfast at the villa every morning, were at the parks waiting for them to open, left the parks each day around 2-3 and came home for swimming and dinner, then went back to the parks. It worked out perfect. Our middle daughter sat on the couch Saturday with tears in her eyes saying she didn't want to leave. It was our first time renting in Florida and we were nervous; however everything was as promised. We will be in touch for our next trip (as we all agree there will be another one).

We (family of 4) rented this house for the week with another family of 4. The house is ideal for 2 families to share with plenty of room for everyone. The kids really enjoyed the pool and the games room (the ability to close the door to the games room was really appreciated by the adults!). The house is well equipped with everything you will need for a great vacation and the drive times to the various theme parks was never more than 20-25 mins...we visited SeaWorld and Aquatica. I would recommend this house to anyone and hope to come back again in the future.

What a fantastic villa!!! Everything you can ask for in a holiday getaway. I'm almost lost for words. Everything was perfect, everything was there that you need, not a thing left out to make your stay the best it can be. Bernie and Carol were extremely professional to deal with and are two wonderful people. It is easy to see they take pride in their villa and obviously really thought hard to make sure everything was perfect for our holiday. We will definitely be returning and highly recommended this villa to all our family, friends and co-workers. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
We have vacationed in Florida at least 6 times and this Villa was by far the best we have ever experienced. The value, the location and the convenience all exceeded our expectations. We hope to visit again next year!!

Hi Bernie and Carol,
Thank you so much for allowing us to use your villa, it was perfect. It had everything that we needed and more. Our kids loved the pool, and the pool alarm was a great touch. The villa was absolutely immaculate. There was tons of room for our family to relax after long days at the parks. My in-laws stayed in the room at the front of the villa and they said they felt that they had their own private apartment down there. The rates were amazing for what you get. I will definitely book with you again, and I'm sure you will be having family and friends of ours calling you soon to book the villa, I can't sop raving about it. The whole booking process was very professional and organized. For first time villa renters, we didn't know what to expect, but everything went very smoothly. Out of all the villas that we could have picked, I glad that we chose yours. To be completely honest I don't think there is anything that I would have changed. Thank you again for making our vacation a success.

Thank-you so much for the use of your villa. It was wonderful. It really made a huge difference to the quality of our holiday. Rebecca and I couldn't stop raving about the experience of having a villa versus a hotel room for a week with three children. It really made our holiday a lot more relaxing and enjoyable not only for Rebecca and I, but the kids as well. For them to have their own room and space, along with the pool and games room was a real treat. And a huge treat for me too, to see the boys enjoy each others company as a family. I don't think the TV was turned on more than a couple hours the entire week. Just to check the weather. I found the directions and accessibility to the villa easy and close to all services as you stated. Again, thanks. We will be certainly looking towards a villa for our next trip. After saving for this one, it may be awhile for the next one! But I will certainly pass along HolidaybyDisney to all my friends and family if they plan on heading to Florida.

Hello Bernie and Carol,
Thank you for opening your vacation villa to us. We enjoyed our stay very much. The home was comfortable and met our expectations. It was a nice place to relax after a long day at the parks. The location to the parks was fantastic. We loved driving in and out from the opposite end of most of the traffic. The kids had a wonderful time in the games room and were excited about the pool. We would recommend your villa to others. You have been a pleasure to work with. I will say that it was a little scary to send out the money to Canada for the deposit and the weekly rental mostly on your word. It is so hard to trust people these days as even you explained to me about not giving the physical address out until closer to the reservation date. You have been very concise and trustworthy. Thank you again!
In awe of Disney,

Nous étions 9 a séjourné dans cette belle maison pour 8 jours. La proximité de la maison, par rapport aux attractions de la région d'Orlando, nous a permis de faire de nombreuses activités amusantes. Nous avons même pu nous rendre à Tampa Bay pour une après-midi de plage et une belle partie de Hockey. De retour à la maison, nous avons passé de beaux moments au bord et dans la piscine. La salle de jeux bien équipée, a été très populaire. Les nuits étaient très reposantes grâce au grand confort des lits et au calme qui règne dans le quartier. La maison contient tout ce dont nous avons besoin en vacances. C'est un choix gagnant pour des vacances remarquables!
There were 9 of us for 8 days in this very welcoming home. The proximity of the house in relation to all attractions around Orlando made it very easy to get where we planned to go. There was easy access to freeway, which allowed quick trips to Disney and even a quick beach afternoon at Tampa Bay before watching a Canadiens/Lightning hockey game. Back at the house, we spent some quality family time around the great heated pool. The well equipped playroom and video game were very popular. Most importantly, our nights were amazing. Thanks to outstanding beds in all bedroom, including the sofa bed, and the quiet neighbourhood. This house has everything you need for your vacation in central Florida and more. It is definitely a winning choice for some memorable family time.

Our family had a great time in your home. It was very clean and we had lots of room to relax in. Your rates were very competitive and both of you were very nice to talk to. We will be highly recommending your place to our family and friends!

Thank you! We had a great holiday, but I don't think we'll ever get adjusted to the snow and zero temperatures of the past few weeks here in Charleston. I hope things are going well with you. I think the villa is in an ideal location for an Orlando vacation that focuses on Disney, the attractions south of Orlando, and Tampa. It is perfect when you want a more economical large-family or two-family stay, and the area is more layed-back and relaxing than being in the hubbub and confusion of Orlando. Plus, you avoid the worst of the Orlando traffic.
