Great Place

We are a group of eight golfers from Ontario who venture to the Orlando area each fall for one last "golf your brains out" week before retiring from the game until the next Canadian spring allows for yet another season. We are returning renters of Jacksonvilla which in itself says something about the level of satisfaction we have with this accommodation. The house is well appointed, centrally located and fits our needs to a "tee"! The house's owner, Michael, is very accommodating to deal with as is his property management "guy" who deals with your every need on a very timely basis. Great place, great price!

Beautiful home and wonderful time for our family

Flew in to Tampa, drove an hour and ten minutes to this beautiful huge pool/spa home.Great location to Disney, which was less than 22 minutes drive (vac. home to Disney gate.) Besides the great off season rate, the house provided so much room, we regretted not asking another family to join us. The kids even asked on numerous occasions if they could please leave the Disney Parks, and go back to the house to swim/go in the hot tub! The clubhouse next door offered great amenities such as tennis,pool, air hockey, ping pong, as well as what was essentially a private pool for us during our stay. Our next visit will entail more R&R and less hurry to the parks! A perfect vacation awaits!!

Owner's reply:

Hi Donald,

Awesome Florida / Disnet Experience

The rental is all that was promised. Spacious bedrooms, 6 of them, we had 3 families and each set of adults had their own master sweet. We had our own heated pool and hot tub. Grocery, Walmart and plenty of restaurants within a couple of minutes. If we plan another trip to the area this is where we will stay. Michael was flexible and great to get along with. Thanks.

Owner's reply:

Hi Ben,

My family and I had a most enjoyable time at Jacksonvilla. We highly recommend this property for your Disney vacation needs. The home is large - we had more than enough room for 10 people, and it is VERY clean. It is close to the Disney parks, as well as plenty of restaurants. The owners were very easy and prompt to deal with. Overall, it was a great experience and we highly recommend this property.

Jacksonvilla is "the best"!

Jacksonvilla is a wonderful place for a holiday in the Orlando area - situated on the Clermont side of Kissimmee - close to Disney and area attractions. It's a great spot for a family or for a group of six to eight golfers. The house is immaculately clean and very well appointed and comfortable. The heated pool and spa are a welcomed addition and the managers are only a phone call away and very responsive to any needs you might have - although that's not likely. It's not much wonder this house and its owners win awards!

Michael Jackson

Owner's reply:

Hi Jim,
Many thanks for the review and for your email, both of which were very encouraging and very much appreciated. It is great to hear that you all enjoyed it so much and even better, that you intend to come back next year. Please be assured of a great welcome! Once again thank you for choosing to stay at Jacksonvilla.
Best regards,
Mike

Fabulous house, fantastic holiday

My family and I travelled to Orlando in September and one of the highlights of our trip was our stay in 'Jacksonvilla' a fabulous 6-bed villa, 10 minute drive from all the Disney parks and Universal Studios. But apart from the ideal location of the house, the accommodation is top class - six spacious bedrooms, large kitchen/ living area, dining area and games room, laundry room...all meticulously maintained and immaculately cleaned in a cul de sac beside the Clubhouse which has a vast array of facilities to complement our stay in the house. The pool and jacuzzi area again a fabulous addition to our stay, again spotlessly clean and well maintained. We also really liked the area which has a very safe and elegant feel to it. We hope to return again to Orlando and will definately rebook into 'Jacksonvilla', a home from home!

Wonderful Vacation

This was the first time I rented directly by owner and I was a little skeptical at first. But I can assure you we were extremely pleased with our vacation at Jacksonvilla. The house wss well maintained and spacious. The pool was great and the kids loved it. We also liked the fact that the clubhouse is located next door. There was a bigger pool there, tennis courts and volleyball courts. Travelling with teenage kids this was a great situation. We had a 20 min drive to Disney which was very convenient. Also there was a Super Walmart about 3 min from the house. I would recommend this house to any family travelling to the Orlando area.

Owner's reply:

Hi Coleen. Great to hear you all enjoyed your vacation in Jacksonvilla. Thank you for the great review. We hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future.

5 Star +

We have recently had the pleasure of enjoying a one week’s stay at Jacksonvilla, a lovely 6 bedroom / 4 bathroom home located in Glenbrook Resort. Jacksonvilla is a very well maintained property both inside and out and has so much to offer including a wonderful pool, spa and games room. It is also conveniently located beside the club house which offers additional amenities such as a playground, community pool, tennis courts, beach volleyball, and more. The house is well equipped, it has many TVs and having WIFI access was an added bonus, allowing the kids to connect to their various gadgets – iPods, iPads, etc. Bruce and Renee who manage the property were wonderful to deal with, and it was a pleasure connecting with Michael who took the time to call us upon our arrival and welcome us into his home. Jacksonvilla is a fantastic home in a great location and I would highly recommend this property to others and welcome the opportunity of returning in the future. Thanks Michael! From the MacDonald & Filice Family

Owner's reply:

Hi Lesley,
Many thanks for your great review. It was fantastic to hear the families had such an enjoyable time in Jacksonvilla and that you got so much use from both our amenities and those next door in the Clubhouse. It was an absolute pleasure having you stay in our home and we hope we will have an opportunity to welcome your family and friends in the future. Best wishes from Bruce and Renee also.
Yours sincerely,

Beautiful House!!!

The house was wonderful. I really liked the fact that there were 2 large tables so we all had a place to sit for dinner. Also, there is plenty of space so that if we wanted "alone time" we could go to our own bedroom for some quiet time. There was also plenty of room for "together time" between the pool/hot tub, games room and living room. The house was great and will definitely stay there again. While we were there the kitchen sink was leaking. When I called the property manager he came over right away. That says a lot!!!

Michael Jackson

Owner's reply:

Hi Ann,
We are delighted to hear you enjoyed the house and would like to return. We are only a call away and we assure you of a very warm welcome. I would like to thank you again for choosing Jacksonvilla and for submitting this review. Your business is very much appreciated.

Golfers At Jakson Villa

The villa provides excellent accommodation, with a good sized l ounge which can be used for informal dining together with a formal dining area. The bedrooms are all of a good size with the king and queen rooms being something special. The pool area is a god size and catches the sun all day, ideal for those who like to sunbathe. The housebook is full of usefull about the attractions, resteruants, local shopping and many other things and together with the leaflets about other things such as boat rides through the glades, visits to crocodile areas was extremely usefull. For the golfers, there are a number of excellent courses within easy reach and the telephone numbers for these can be found in the housebook making it very simple to pre book your game. Overall a very pleaseant experience which we hope to repeat.

Owner's reply:

Many thanks for the feedback John. You would be most welcome back to Jacksonvilla in the future.

Perfect Place

We spent 9 days at this house. Six adults and three little ones. It worked out wonderfully. We had never rented a house for a vacation before, so we were a little worried. The beds were comfortable, we could prepare some meals and snacks when we wanted, multiple TVs so everyone could watch what they wanted and washing/drying clothes all made it just like home. However the "best" part was the pool. We don't have one at home. So we really used the HEATED pool a lot. The temperature was like bath water and it felt soooo good to step into it and relax after a day at the park. Have the playset with swings next door at the clubhouse worked out well with the little ones too. Everyone in our party liked this much better than renting multiple hotel rooms to handle the three different families. Talking with Michael, the owner, before we signed up also was very interesting. He was helpful with explaining the contract details and his knowledge of the Disney area, even though he lives an ocean away. I would do it again!!!

Michael Jackson

Owner's reply:

Hi Stephen,
Many thanks for choosing to stay at Jacksonvilla. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay and posted this excellent review which is very much appreciated. The popularity of Jacksonvilla has been increasing year on year as can be seen from our well filled calendar. Much of the popularity has to do with good reviews from satisfied guests, like yourself.

Great Villa

I have been to Jacksonvilla 3 times now and it just keeps getting better and better. The house is kept in excellent condition (better than most in the area). The addition of WiFi and HDTVs with cable is a great bonus as well. Being next door the clubhouse is great because there is a larger pool and tennis court to take advantage off. Being only 10 mins from disney makes it an ideal home for the parks. Really enjoyed my stay and would definitely go back!

My husband, myself and 4 of our children stayed in MJ's villa in Clermont, FL. It is a beautiful home with an awesome and much used pool and hot tub. We had more than enough room. Proberty is located in a housing edition.We felt comfortable that not only the family but our belongings and vehicles were safe and undisturbed. It is located within a few miles of theme parks we visited. Close to a grocery stores, convenience stores,gas and shopping of all kinds.My daughters and I enjoyed a trip to the nail salon which was also very close. We are already planning our next vacation in which we are planning to return to MJ's villa if possible! I also wanted to mention how affordable our stay was at the villa. We have been fortunate enough to stay in a few different homes on our various vacations and I have to say it was one of the most inexpensive, as well as best located to meet our needs.

lovely big home with a great pool/spa

Very very clean, very big, beautiful house in a beautiful part of Florida. We traveled with our four young children (age 1, 2, 7, and 9) and our inlaws. Loved having the clubhouse to use beside us (nice exercise equipment available 24/7) and the play structure for the youngest kids. The pool at the house was very nice, warm and clean. The house was plenty big for all 8 of us, and layed out nice. Groceries were easy to get (about a 5 minute walk) and it was a nice subdivision. Walmart was close (for all the little things you forget to pack!!) and lots to do nearby! We visited Lake Louisa State park, and the kids LOVED the lake. We hiked there as well. Very warm water, calm and private! Also drove to Cocoa Beach, loved it there - not nearly as crowded as Clearwater. Went to Houlihans restaurant nearby (yum) and Disney as well. Wonderful memories made, most of them right at the house and in our pool. Four happy kids!!!

Spacious, nice pool, great for families

We went with 2 families, 4 adults and 7 kids/teens. There was ample space for everyone to sleep. It was nice to have the 6 single beds so siblings didn't have to share a double bed. The 2 couples (parents) each had their own room with an onsuite bathroom. One large master bedroom on main floor with another room with double bed on that floor. The remaining rooms were upstairs. Lots of bathrooms but don't try to all have showers in the morning as there is not enough hot water for that. Really enjoyed our stay and would go there again if we were in the area. The owners had lots of helpful information in the house and have been great to deal with. We heated the pool and that was a good thing to do in March. Pool depth was 3ft to 5 ft. There was a small hottub pool (optional to heat it to hottub temperature) that flowed into larger pool. Kitchen had sufficient stock of kitchenware. Spices, dish soap, laundry soap are not provided but the SweetBay down the road had everything we needed. We didn't really need the clubhouse beside us except for internet. There is a library for internet access not too far from the house as well. Great place!

Great location

Jacksonvilla is located just south of Clermont - west of Orlando and close to all attractions. It is also close to many amenities - pharmacies, groceries, restaurants, etc. A clubhouse is situated next door. An enjoyable home found very clean at our arrival. All details provided by the owner were spot on.

Wonderful experience!

The villa was wonderful!!! Wish the weather had been also :). We did at least get three warm days and one beautiful day. The villa was beautiful and very nicely maintained. The boys enjoyed getting to have their own rooms for a change. Everyone went fishing a few times and my two youngest made great use of the playground being right next store. It was wonderful for me since I could watch them from the pool area while reading because the playground was so close. The two oldest girls took advantage of being able to rent dvd's from the clubhouse. We also loved that it was so close to so many stores and restaurants. Everything we needed was near by. Including Disney World. Spent a cold day there, but the kids had a blast. We spent one day at the beach and it was only an hours drive from the villa. The last day it was finally warm enough to swim in the pool and the kids spent the entire day in it. With everything you provided the villa was a great money saver for us over the choice of a hotel. A hotel would have been the same amount of money for the week, but no private pool, no privacy, no playground, and no fishing or tennis. In addition, we saved money by being able to cook at the villa instead of eating all our meals out. It was a wonderful vaction and if we ever go back to Florida we will be contacting you to see if your villa is available. Thank you so much for the use of your villa and we hope to be able to come back someday.

Great house, Great location, Needs big screen TV

Great house for 10 people. Everyone had a bed and adaquate bathrooms. Pool was somewhat warm, but the jacuzzi was heaven. Only drawback was the small TV in the living room ~ definitely need a big screen. We were down in Orlando for the Capital One Bowl and had to watch the other bowl games on a 27" TV.

This home is in a perfect location in the park. It is very clean, spacious and well stocked. Bruce & Renee were extremely helpful. A reference book in the home told about restaurants, golf courses and local attractions. Directions were given to airport, DisneyWorld and other attractions. It was very useful.

A few comments on our stay at Jacksonvilla...

Michael,

On behalf of our group, I want to let you know that we had the good fortune to hook up with you and rent Jacksonvilla for several weeks this past January.

Your home in Florida is the perfect location - Quiet Street, adjacent to the Glenbrook clubhouse, and close to many amenities and the Orlando parks. The house was comfortable and functional.

It was a pleasure to meet Bruce, your property manager, and Renee, the clubhouse manager - they made us feel welcome.

We look forward to other opportunities to rent Jacksonvilla, and it will be our pleasure to recommend it to others.
A good time was had by all in Florida - made more so with our stay at Jacksonvilla.
Feel free to send the links to your recommendation form.

Thanks again for making it easy to work with you.

All the Best,

Henri

Michael,
Thank you for your refund and note, both were much appreciated.

We loved your house, it was a great size for us and having the clubhouse pool next door was a godsend. I know you said it was underused but we only ever shared it on a couple of occasions and even then only for 10 minutes; it was almost like having another private pool. The games room received a lot of use although my pool playing skills didn't noticeably improve.

The location was perfect for getting in and out of Disney easily and the local shops were very good - although how they remain open when they seem so quiet is beyond me.

I would definitely recommend your house to friends and would be more than happy to come back to stay on a subsequent visit ourselves.

All the best,
Pete

Email: We spent 6/19-6/22 at your home for our girls volleyball tournament. Things were quite stressful because of their play schedules, but I want you to know that staying at your beautiful home was so relaxing for us. Many of our team members found deals in condos, resorts, etc, but nobody was more pleased with their accommodations than we were.

From the time we walked in the home was so inviting and spacious. Everyone had their own space. Actually the home was so spacious that we didn't even use the front living area at all. The family room was so comfortable and the girls thoroughly enjoyed the pool right outside our door. Everything was so clean and convenient.
The location of your home is the best in the community being right beside the clubhouse. The area was very quiet during the days and nights and this was something we really appreciated after long exhausting days spent at the convention center playing volleyball. We didn't do too well in the tournament, but our daughters both played very well and so overall it was a great experience.

My family would definitely return to your home when we come that way again and may actually try to come down this Fall or Winter. Thank you for the use of your lovely home.

Email: Thank you Mike & Gillian for letting us use your beautiful villa during our visit to Orlando. With the busy days visiting the parks, what kept us going was the knowledge that your beautiful villa & pool was waiting for us to relax in. We were also on holidays with our kids, grandparents & aunt, so we appreciated the 5 spacious bedrooms, and 3 living room areas, which allowed plenty of space for us all :-)
I would highly recommend this villa to anyone - whether it's for a relaxing holiday in Florida, or a busy holiday visiting the parks, Jacksonvilla gets tops marks on all aspects. Until next time - Natalie
Guest book: What can I say? We had a great holiday. The villa exceeded our expectation. Do close to everything; great pool; great size. The kids have had a magical time. Thank you for sharing your house with us. Until next time!

We had a fantastic holiday here with our children and grandchildren. The villa is everything we had hoped for and more! Thank you.

Great pool; Bruce was a great help as well. Excellent for internet, being next door to the Community Centre which was very quiet.


Mar-Apr 10; Frances Samson. Troon, Scotland.

We stayed at your villa along with Colin & Heather Nelson and just wanted to say how impressed we were with the accommodation. It was very clean, spacious, airy and with everything in it to make it feel like home (except there is no sun at home). Thanks for making your home available to us. I would, and will, recommend it to anyone visiting Florida.

Mar-Apr 10 - Heather, Colin & Ross Nelson. Belfast, N.Ireland

We stayed at Jacksonvilla for three weeks during March/April '10. This is a beautiful home, exceptionally well equipped and spotlessly clean. The pool area was fantastic and the games room even better! The local amenities such as gas stations and supermarkets were close by and plentiful and the staff in the club-house were very helpful in all matters e.g. printing out our boarding passes for flights home. The short cut through Disney was great. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Jacksonvilla; it is perfect for a family holiday. We have absolutely no complaints at all about this home and we will definitely be staying here again on our next visit to Orlando.

We absolutely loved the house. We were the first Canadians to come and it was an honour for us. We would love to come back again!

Email: Everything was great. You have a very nice house, very clean, well situated, near everything, store, shopping center and groceries stores. I would recommend your house to anyone without hesitation. Finely, I will certainly returning to your house the next time I am going in your area.

Have a very nice year and again, thank you!

Stunning home with excellent facilities. Enjoyed every minute; sad to leave!

Sept 09 - Chris Logan

A really comfortable and spacious house with all the facilities you could ever want; Jackson Villa provides a great base to explore central Florida and beyond. I particularly enjoyed the pool just outside the backdoor; not to mention the larger pool just next door at the clubhouse. The games room provided was also a very nice touch, and we spent loads of our time using the pool and air hockey tables. If I'm ever back in Florida I wouldn't hesitate to return to Jackson Villa, and will happily recommend it to friends and family.

Thanks so much for such a wonderful stay in such a great house. We had a stupendous time and the kids enjoyed the pool every second that we were here. Thanks again.

Jul'09; Craig family, N. Ireland

Just wanted to say a big thank you for a great time spent in your villa. The place is amazing & so comfortable with all the amenities we needed. It was great to feel so at home! Having the extra pool & gym next door was great & the kids really enjoyed using the volleyball pitch even though it was very hot. Had no complaints & being so handy to the parks made it an ideal base. I will definitely be recommending it to friends who are looking to stay in Florida.

May'09; Best regards, Samantha

I am back in Peru, everything was very good with the house, very nice and all my family was very happy! thank you!

Great location Richardson's National Training Center in Clermont and the Disney Parks. Beautiful villa; loved being near the Rec Center - Beautiful pool - Spacious rooms. We all had a great time.

Jan'09 - Many thanks, Alison Patterson-Brown

This was our second trip to Florida with our family, 5 adults and two young children. The villa was excellent. Positioned far enough away from the bustle of Orlando nightlife and within easy driving distance from all the theme parks. Easy to find on arrival - even at 11.30pm with a delayed flight!

Villa was very spacious with 2 double rooms with en-suite and 3 twin rooms with a further 2 bathrooms. Living and dining areas very comfortable and utility room well situated and very functional with easy access to garage. The kitchen was well presented and offered a central hub for all the family.

Pool area was a great chill-out after all day at theme parks! Bonus was the Jacuzzi once we were shown how to switch it on! All windows had fly screens so if you wanted to leave the ac off and enjoy a night-time breeze you could without worrying about any bugs! Everywhere was very clean and well maintained. Any questions were answered very quickly.

The villa was located next to the complex clubhouse which gave use to internet and had its own pool and tennis court. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Internet was great for online checking-in for return flight home and saved a lot of cuing at airport. Local shops were located just a few minutes drive on the main highway and there was a 24hr pharmacy at the entrance to the estate.

Our opinion; The Glenbrook estate is well situated and accessible to all attractions in Orlando and offers a relaxing base for a family holiday. Restaurants and shops are close to hand and home delivery is also available if you just want a night off!

We would certainly recommend the villa we stayed in, and will be using it again on our next trip to Orlando.

October 08. Terry & Joy, Belfast, N.Ireland.

Excellent villa & pool. Had a great holiday. Sorry to leave. Very many thanks!
