SUPER VILLA

If you are looking for a villa close to the parks (Disney, Universal ....) and the Malls, please consider the one. Based on the pictures the owner published on the site our expectations were high, but in "real live" the villa managed to impress us ever more. This villa has everything our can imagine and more, A LOT MORE. As soon as we arrived, the condition of the villa and the luxury inside was impressive. We all enjoyed the villa very much, and will promote it to all our friends. We are already planning our next trip to Florida, but we will not look for an other villa. We will book this villa as soon as we have a date set for next year (2011)

Date of Stay October 6, 2012

We had a fabulous week at Towerlake Villa during our October break. Great time of year to visit Orlando - the parks, malls and roads were extremely quiet. The air temperature was perfect and so the extra spend on pool heating was unnecessary - probably best to wait until you get there to decide. The villa was reallly well located and had every amenity close by. It was beautifully clean and had plenty of towels and linen. We chose not to use the BBQ as it had definitely seen better days and the owner said he would probably replace this next year. We had a minor problem towards the end of our week with the WiFi which was resolved by the management company within a very short time. We would certainly recommend Towerlake Villa to anyone looking for good quality accommodation in Orlando.

My Response

Yes I will be replacing the BBQ/Grill when I return in early 2013. In the meantime the BBQ will be cleaned by the Management Company for the time being. The Wi-Fi rarely has a problem but when it does my Management company is always on hand. Owner

The villa was everything that we had expected. Large, comfortable and a fantastic base to have whilst visiting Orlando. The pool was a good size. Everything that we needed was provided and all in great condition. I would not hesitate to recommend this as a superb base for the Orlando area with shops, restaurant and easy road access to all the parks and tourist attractions.

Everything you will ever need and more!

Date of Stay September 1, 2012

Spent 2 weeks here on holiday and what a holiday it was, it's about 20 mins drive to Disney which is really straight forward as its only a minute from the main highway and theres a massive Wallmart and Publix nearby which have everything. The villa is so beautiful and clean and the pool was fantastic. We had a slight issue with the TV but the friendly management came and sorted it straight away, we really couldn't fawlt it in any way. BBQ was a really useful feature that we made the most of aswell as the buggy that is provided because we had two children 4 and 5 year old with us we really needed it at the parks. A few tips for people: #1 - Don't buy anything until you have checked the all kitchen first because im sure it will be in there #2 - Any problems just phone the management company, they are really friendly, helpful and quick too #3 - buy Ribeye steak from publix, best i've ever had for 3 dollars Thank you Martin and family for letting us use this home, we will certainly return very soon.

recent trip to Florida

Date of Stay August 12, 2012

We ( 8 people including a 5 year old ) spent 10 days at the Villa in Mid August and thoroughly enjoyed every minute-although we have travelled extensively this was our first stay at a Villa and it lived up to all expectations --everything was as in the pictures and descriptions and the instructions detailed and accurate . all 8 of us found the facilities excellent and the amenities from swimming pool to BBQ to games room were all well used and enjoyed. A perfect base for Disney and beyond and flying in and out of Tampa was so much easier than using Orlando . A totally safe area and with excellent travel to Disney and beyond--Walmart was only 5 minutes away and provided everything we needed . we had little need of the management company but when we did we found them friendly and helpfulas indeed was the owner before and after the visit. We hope to revisit in the next couple of years and will certainly choose the same villa and have already recommended it to friends to consider for their trip next year. I had done extensive comparisons of villas beforehand and feel the decision to choose this property was very much the right one --no wonder it is heavily booked !!

Date of Stay July 15, 2012

As a family we have had numerous visits to the surrounding Disneyworld area in Florida but have enjoyed this particular area by far. We were sceptical about the distance from the parks but this was not a problem at all, the roads were quiet and easy to navigate and the house is very close to all the necessary amenities, Walmart etc., The house itself is homely, very spacious and immaculate. We looked long and hard for this property and do believe that it is has something extra to offer than others we have stayed in. We had a minor problem with the air conditioning during our stay but there was a very efficient service provided by the Management Company to solve the problem, who were always on hand and we found this very reassuring. We felt very secure within the gated community and found this to be a quiet and well maintained neighbourhood. The owners are very personable and informative and obviously proud of their accomodation. We would recommend this property and hope to return again in the future.

Great Family Vacation Spot!
178 Minniehaha Circle, Haines City, FL (215082)

Date of Stay June 30, 2012

We wanted to take our grown children and grandson to Disney World and all the other great attractions in the area without having to pay exorbitant hotel fees. Staying at this property was a great alternative, especially since it's not a far drive to get to those attractions. We especially liked having a pool at the house so we could enjoy a dip anytime we wanted. The house is well maintained and there were plenty of bedrooms for all of us to have our own privacy. We also enjoyed the large kitchen area so we could save money and eat some meals there. The owner and property manager were very helpful in answering my questions and being flexible on our departure time. My girlfriend and her family stayed here and highly recommended it. I agree...this is a great place for a family vacation!

Superb large family villa


Date of Stay May 9, 2012

I would highly recommend this villa. The family accommodation was excellent it was extremely large and comfortable there was plenty of room for all our party of 11. It was a real home from home with every amenity you could wish for. It was very clean and well maintained and the pool was a great hit with the children. The games room was also throughly enjoyed by all. The owners were very helpful and easily contactable should you need them. I would recommend this property to anybody with a large family group. All the theme parks were easily accessible from the villa and there were lots of shops and restaurants nearby. There is a very useful handbook provided by the owners. We would not hesitate to book this property again should we return to Florida.

Excellent, relaxing two weeks in a fully equipped home from home! Excellent family location, Walmart 5 minutes drive away for all your needs. The spacious well furnished house welcomed us home at the end of the 30 minute drive from the parks. The heated pool was a great way to unwind after a long "magic" day. We recommend staying in this villa without hesitation and we will be back!

Thanks for your kind comments Sue. The only observation I have is that we take 20 minutes to get to Disney and 30 minutes to get to Universal via the US-27 & I-4 which is always free flowing and without traffic jams. Owner (Martin Ford)

Wow, what can i say! We had the best stay in this villa. Its exactly what it says in the description. The place is very clean, comfortable, and definately felt like home. The pool is the best part. The sun sets in the garden, leaving us to enjoy the pool til early evening. The management were also very helpful, and professional. We bought the in laws with us and i was so proud to show it off to them. I would, and already have, recommended this to everyone that will listen. There was also a resturant we visited, (which i think was called Mannys) this was only a few miles from the villa. the food was great, the atmosphere was buzzing, and the staff were very welcoming.

Great family vacation spot!

Date of Stay February 24, 2012

We cannot say enough positive things about our stay in this villa. It was the perfect size for our family of 5 ( we could have easily fit a few more people, it is really spacious). The kids loved the pool, it was clean and warm and somewhat secluded from the neighbors due to the trees and bushes around it. We spent 8 nights here and slept very well! The kids opted to spend most days in the pool even when we offered to take them to the ocean. The kitchen was perfect, we saved a ton of money by cooking our own meals. There is a super Walmart literally 5 minutes away that had everything we needed. It is in a nice gated community with a short walk to the lake. Tvs in every room, plenty of entertainment, pool table, exercise bike, we had everything we needed and more. I think my favorite part was the washer and dryer. We came home from a week vacation with 5 people and luggage full of CLEAN clothes- you won't get that at a hotel!

Fun in the Florida Sun

Date of Stay February 16, 2012

Martin, Had a blast at your home in Orlando, great location 30 - 40 minutes to the parks, plenty of space, kids loved the game room while the adults relaxed by the pool or in the living room nightly after a long day at the parks. Pool and jacuzzi were not functioning the first night but was fixed and up and running by 9am the next morning. I've been renting homes for over 20 years from Upstate New York, Cape Cod, Arizona and Florida and yours was a true home away from home for my family and friends, easily the best fo them all. Look forward to spending time there again, thanks for sharing your home with others.

We have just returned from staying a month in this fantastic villa. It was even more luxurious than we expected and very well equipped. It is situated in a very quiet gated community about 25 minutes from all the attractions and only a few minutes from walmart (which we visited regularly) and many, many restaurants. The spa was a real favourite of ours, it was perfect to lay in there late in the evenings after walking round the parks all day. The pool was off a good size perfect for 5 of us. If your looking for a villa away from all the hustle and bustle of orlando then contact Martin for a truly memorable holiday. We would throughly recommend it and hope to return very soon.

Owner response: This is another welcome review from guests who have stayed for 4 weeks and bears out the quality of our villa and its superb location for theme parks, restaurants and shopping which guests might expect when they visit Florida for a relaxing holiday.

EVEN WITH A LARGE FAMILY, THE VILLA OFFERED PLENTY OF ROOM FOR EVERYONE. THE DEVELOPMENT WAS BEAUTIFUL AND SECURE. THE OWNER WAS ALWAYS VERY PROMPT IN RESPONDING TO ALL QUESTIONS.

We can't wait to return next year. The home is super plush with everything you'd want in a vacation home...the pool and spa are terrific; the pool table and foosball gear outstanding. TVs are top notch and the kitchen has all you need. Plenty of beds for 10 people...we even had a surprise guest for one night and had the fold-out sofabed for him...very comfortable, too. Be sure to try Manny's Chophouse in Haines City...about 5 minutes away. A fun-and-fine restaurant.

This Villa is a true paradise away from home......

We decided to take a vacation to Florida with family members (my husband has never been to Florida). We chose this villa because of the lavish accomodations and for the proximity as it was centrally located very close to all of the tourist attractions. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was very relaxing and enjoyable. I especially felt safe staying within the gated community.

Great vacation home!

We just returned from having a wonderful vacation in Florida and staying at Martin Ford's vacation home. The home was very clean, well maintained, lots of room and the pool was a big hit, especially with the two teenagers and two 21 year olds. Martin was very prompt in answering any questions that we had via e-mail. We had no problem finding the home from the directions that he sent us prior to the trip. The rental home listing was accurate and the photos showed us just how nice the house was. Amenities were close by - grocery stores, pharmacy, restaurants, etc. We stocked up on food for breakfast, lunch and snacks and then usually went out to dinner. It was only a 25 minute trip, door-to-door to Disney World, which we didn't find bad at all. We enjoyed dinner at Ci Ci's Pizza - all 6 of us had their all-you-can-eat pizza buffet, for a total cost of $44, which we thought was quite reasonable. Another restaurant that we enjoyed was the Olive Garden in Kissimmee. The price was more expensive there, but the portions were so big that we all took home leftovers and had them for dinner the next night. Two meals for the price of one! We would highly recommend staying at Martin's home!

What a great home. If I am going back to the Orlando area and this house still is for rent, I would love to have it again. We were 10 and is was still space for all off us. We had a great time. Everyting was just as spesified in the ad for the house. We came in late and found us right at home straight away. Directions to get to the house was also very good. This is the way to have a good, nice and relaxing vacation. Nothing to worry about! Close to major highway's and stores was a pluss. Owner quick with replys regarding the house in advance. That's the way to do it!! Thanks alot for lending us your house.

Beautiful home, well appointed, great location. Glad we choose it. Our recent golf junket with 7 Canadian buddies was a big success. Thanks for the tip on Southern Dunes Golf Club, Martin. Great track, well priced and right next door. Lots of other courses within a short drive but we stayed close to home. We only went out for dinner one night as your great kitchen and living room set-up was a hit with the guys. Walmart nearby was handy. Recommend Manny's Chop House to your guests for a great night out, 5 minutes away. Thanks again....we shall return!

Had a brilliant stay at this large & lovely villa, it's in excellent condition and superbly located. Really enjoyed making use of all the facilities the place had to offer, especially the pool & games room. Great location for all the parks and so much to do.

If you're looking for a really good steak close by, Manny's Chophouse is the place to be. I also advise a trip to Gatorland. Highly recommendable holiday!

We stayed at this house from July 28th - Aug 5th, this house has everything you may need. The location of this house is about 20-25 minutes from downtown disney, but it actually felt good to be a bit away from everything and jump into the pool or jacuzzi. The house is very clean and comfortable. Mr. Ford was very reliable and quick in responding to our needs while in the house. I would totally recommend this house to anyone who would like to have an awesome time in Orlando, Fl.

If you are looking for a villa close to the parks (Disney, Universal ....) and the Malls, please consider the one. Based on the pictures the owner published on the site our expectations were high, but in "real live" the villa managed to impress us ever more. This villa has everything our can imagine and more, A LOT MORE. As soon as we arrived, the condition of the villa and the luxury inside was impressive. We all enjoyed the villa very much, and will promote it to all our friends. We are already planning our next trip to Florida, but we will not look for an other villa. We will book this villa as soon as we have a date set for next year (2011)

I stayed at this home for Christmas and it was absolutely beautiful. The grounds were well kept. The home was well maintained. There was a very peaceful atmosphere. This is the perfect home for any family vacation. It was extremely spacious and the pictures are nothing like being there. We went to Disney World while we were there which was very close to the property. I have recommended this villa to others already and plan on staying here every time I go to Disney World.

Owner's Response: I thank you for your comments. I strive to satisfy all my guests expectations so that they have a relaxed stay and holiday and personally see to it that they enjoy a 'home from home' experience.

We had a really enjoyable 2 weeks in this spacious, beautifully furnished and well equipped villa. Our family of 4 adults each had their own space (bed and ensuite), and the master bedroom downstairs was lovely.

We spent many evenings enjoying the pool and spa - the pool lights were great. The Games Room (pool, darts, gym equipment) had good use too!

Only 25 minutes from all the action in Orlando, and within minutes of Walmart, Publix Supermarket, pharmacy and food outlets especially Manny's chophouse.

We would highly recommend this villa!

Let me start by saying this is our first experience renting a home for vacation - and it was great! This home exceeded our expectations - it was spacious, excellent floor plan, with everything you could want in a home-away-from-home. There were eight of us, and we were very comfortable and had a wonderful time during our stay.

The owner was great to work with! In our search for a rental, we narrowed it down to a few homes. Martin went the extra mile, and actually called to make sure we received his quote. That really was the key in choosing this home. He answered all the emails and every question we had - and there were lots (first time,remember). There was a couple of items that came up, and it was resolved by Martin himself. You couldn't find a better home owner to work with.

There was a little bit of driving to reach the parks, about 20 minutes but no traffic jams, but it was great to come back to a home that was away from the fast pace and traffic to enjoy the peace and quiet. Besides, there was plenty to do, with the swimming pool, pool table and other games.

I would definitely recommend this home to anyone. Martin, thank you for allowing us to enjoy your wonderful home and making this one of the best vacations we've had.

Me and my family stayed in this beautiful and cozy villa from Feb. 29 to March 6 2008. It is nicely decorated with most of all convenient items normally useful in a house. Everything was clean and new. Communication with the owner was easy, friendly and quick. Everything went easy starting from booking. I consider this villa a 5 star. It is located about 20 minutes from Disney and 45 to the airport. I would highyly recommended to friends or family.

We stayed in the villa for 2 weeks in July 08 and had a great time. It is well located near the Interstate 4 highway for easy access all over Florida, particularly the theme parks near Orlando. The villa itself is luxuriously furnished, and is even more spacious than the impression given by the adverisement plans. The swimming pool is larger than the average villa has, and there's also a jacuzzi plus a large games room where the children played pool, darts and table football late into the evenings after the day out. Look out for Manny's Chop house diner just down the road - great food and great atmosphere! Altogether we are happy to recommend the Villa to anyone. John Atkinson

We had a fantastic time staying at Tower Lake Villa. The size of the villa was great,giving everybody plenty of room to spread out (4 adults and 2 kids).
The proximity to the theme parks was especially helpful, allowing us easy access and no traffic jams.
After a long day, the pool and jacuzzi were just what we needed to relax and unwind. The games room/gym was also a favourite with all of us.
We look forward to staying a your villa again when we next visit Florida, and have no hesitation in recommending it to our friends and colleagues.

We had the MOST fanstastic two weeks at Tower Lake Villa in October. The Villa was fabulous, light and airy and plenty of room for all of us (party of 6 - three families) the pool was great and got used every day by all of us!!!! as did the playroom!!.

The villa is a short drive away from the parks, shopping etc etc. We were really impressed with everything the villa has to offer and made full use of the FAB pool ... I would have no hesitation in recommending staying here, the only downside to the holiday was coming home!!!
The Management Company gave us some fantastic advice on places to visit a little off the beaten track ... which just made our wonderful holiday just that bit more special. I would thoroughly recommend this villa and hope to be back again.

Just wanted to let everyone know we stayed at this property during the Christmas and New Year 2008 and we had a fabulous time. The house is beautiful with everything plus more you could ask for. Way better than staying at a hotel. My husband and I, my parents and my brother and his wife and kids all went down for the holidays. Very close to the parks (about 20 minute drive). Danny and his wife (Management Company) were great. The pool was beautiful and my kids had a great time in the game room. Nothing bad to say.

After spending a week in this house I can honestly say this house was everything I thought it would be. The house was spacious and clean inside and out. Eight of us stayed in the house and we never felt crowded. The screened in pool was warm and very relaxing. The kitchen was well equipped to handle all of our meal needs. The house was approximately 15 minutes away from all the noise and congestion that comes with the Orlando attractions. What I found most important from this experience was the fact that the owner of the house responded to my emails within hours of receiving them. He was very helpful during the entire process. Everyone in my group agrees 100% that this house was worth every penny!!
