5 out of 5 Star Rating Listing was accurate regarding location, layout amenities. Location was fantastic in relationship to Disney properties as we were able to drive to the Animal Kingdom Lodge in under 10 minutes. We had breakfast and dinner there several times as we love their buffet. The house was in perfect working order and very clean upon our arrival. Only a small problem with the cable reception and the management company took care of that in short order. The owners were extremely easy to work with and answered all our questions in a timely manner prior to arrival. We would rent here again and recommend this home to anyone seeking a great price for a nice villa and desiring to be close to Disney properties, grocery stores and many eating establishments within just a few minutes. Owner's Response: Dear Tom and Margie, Many thanks for taking the time to send us a review. It's always refreshing to receive feedback, especially when it's good. Kind regards Maurice and Evelyn.
Tom and Margie, York PA January 2013
Our vacation home in Orlando was great. It was very tastefully decorated and comfortable, including high quality linens in the bedrooms and all applicances in good working order. It was almost like being at home. The owner was very pleasant to deal with and extremely helpful during the rental process. Our family would love to rent this property on our next trip to Orlando. Like they say, "try it, you'll like it!" Enjoy! 5 out of 5 star rating
Debbi and family MD March 19th 2013
Just a quick note to say thank-you, we had a fantastic holiday. Your villa is excellent, clean, well maintained, and homely. We have been visiting Florida for more than 25 years and I have to say that this is probably the nicest and best situated villas that we have stayed in. The equipment and facilities of the villa were top notch, we only had one small hiccup on the last morning when the waste disposal stopped working, we reported this via answerphone to the management company.

Garth and family, Oxford, England 30th December 2012
One of the most memorable and lengthy vacations. We opened the door to the villa and began a stay in a cozy, clean and comfortable home a hop skip and jump from Disney World Parks, restaurants and outlets. Our grandson and precious charge wants you to know about the time he played with Mickey and Minnie in the room that was all his and how he liked (and for which we were grateful) the on demand 310 kids channel when we took breaks from the Parks. A very happy 25th anniversary for us and a happy bake tones day to boot. Thank you for allowing your lovely home to be part of our cherished memories.
Tom and family, Pennsylvania February 2013
I have rented many homes in the Orlando area and found this home to be very well furnished with more than average bedding and towels available. The furniture in the living room and HDTV were of high quality with free wifi and Brighthouse network channels all available free. The cleanliness of the villa was excellent. The villa itself is in a well lit and clean area with many residents obviously homeowners taking a pride in their community. The whole booking process was excellent too. I would certainly recommend this villa to family and friends. (compiled from guests questionnaire)
Irene and friends, Belfast, Northern Ireland 4th December 2012
Your home is well equipped, very clean and extremely comfortable and we would highly recommend it to others, and have already suggested it to some friend's.. This was so much better than the family spread throughout a 20 mile radius all over the community. Others that visited were jealous and should contact you next summer
Peggy and family, Port Orange,Florida. November 9th 2012

Thank you so much - great villa,great location. This has been a dream come true holiday with my grandchildren. I also liked the confidence built prior to my arrival with great communications with Maurice. We had storm damage to the pool lania cover which was fixed within 24hrs by very helpful maintenance. This place gets 10-10 for location to Disney Resorts. 10-10 for cleanliness and presentation. Well done to Maurice and owners

family from Quincy IL May 2011
Never Again!!! No, not this wonderful villa which is set in a great location, but the thought of using an hotel ever again. Having been to Florida a number of times, this trip surpassed our expectations and the facilities provided by Maurice and Evelyn were first class. Despite a busy schedule it was nice to know that each evening we were returning to peace, quiet , comfort, and that very relaxing hot tub. Thanks for all your advice and assistance prior to out trip and we will certainly recommend your home to friends and family.
Stewart and Hazel, Scotland. June 2011
Date of Stay: 01/20/11 Review Submitted: 01/27/11 Immaculate property well-maintained and very comfortable! Close to ESPN and Disney parks/attractions. We will NEVER stay in a hotel again! Groceries and dining 3 minutes away! Owner very helpful and immediately responded to any questions I had. Property looks exactly as pictured....hot tub was best R & R after a long day. Loved the lighted pool and quiet area. Would recommend this property to anyone! Worth every penny! Recommended for: Girls getaway, families with teenagers, families with young children.
We needed a nice place to stay during our daughters gymnastics competition and this home was great in every way. Kids really enjoyed the pool. Not sure why the hot tub had no water in it, though. We were so close to the Wide World of Sports Complex, as well as great restaurants, the location couldn't have been more perfect. Thanks for a great stay. OWNER'S COMMENTS Hot Tub had to be emptied and dried pending fibreglass repair
Sides family, Land o' Lakes, Florida July 2010
Your house was perfect for going to Disney. We really enjoyed the pool and the spa. Really need to get to the Parks first thing in the morning to beat the crowds. It was really nice having the three bathrooms for the kids to take a bath when we first got home. We loved your house
Pfifer July 29th 2010
Had a fantastic holiday as always in sunny Florida. The Johnstons home is beautiful and very relaxing after a hard day park/shopping. There is everything you could possibly need in the villa and the pool was great. Good location with plenty good restaurants nearby. Will definately recommend to friends. Thanks very very much to all the Johnstons
Tracy and Malcolm, Memus,by Forfar,Scotland Oct 2010
Sadly our family holiday is almost over. Whilst we were out every day it was a delightful thought to be coming back to "our" villa.Beautifully equipped,great pool and its location is perfect.The best holiday villa we've used in our trips to Orlando. Our thanks to the Johnston family for giving us a great start and end to each day
Brian and families,Fife,Scotland - April 2010
Just arrived home and wanted to say thanks, we had a fabulous holiday, and the week we spent at the Villa was wonderful. Warm, welcoming and very well equipped, just a bit sad we didn't get a chance to use the hot tub, but the weather was just too hot!! I called the Management company yesterday just to let them know that the pool alarm on the living room doors had just started beeping intermittently - battery maybe?? Again many thanks - will recommend to any friends/family planning on coming to Florida! (email)
Penny and family Sittingbourne, Kent August 30th 2010

Date of Stay: 04/03/10
It was a wonderful week, the house, the weather and the activities. Kids love your pool and adults enjoyed the Jacuzi! we even played the mini pool table at garage. Over all it is a very nice house. and your management is impressive, no wonder your booking calendar is almost full!
The house was absolutely magnificent, more than expected! We enjoyed Orlando on the whole and your house specifically. We couldn't ask for more.
Azancot family,Israel August 2009
The kids, and us, enjoyed our stay in Florida. Disney was great, the water parks were fun, cocoa beach was a nice day, and the days at the house we enjoyed too. We found the rooms very nice, the open concept kitchen/family room was excellent, and the kids loved swimming every minute they could get in the pool. We were pleasantly surprised how comfortable the bed was that we slept in. The kids loved the "cars" playstation game. We loved how close we were to the theme parks and each time we went to a theme park we came back in the early afternoon for a break and then returned back after we ate dinner. Thanks for letting us spend our vacation in your rental home because we truly did enjoy ourselves and wish we didn't have to get on a flight home tomorrow afternoon. We most definitely plan to return and will definitely consider staying here again, only we think we need to do three weeks to fully enjoy a relaxing vacation
The Johnstone family, Ontario July 2009
We had a wonderful adventure on our vacation. We loved staying at your home. The children enjoyed the pool and during our "hot" days at Disney they just wanted to come home and swim. Your home was perfect-the location and the shortcut to Disney was great.We will tell our friends and family
The Siekiera family, Rhode Island July 09
We had an excellent time. From the moment we entered we felt at home. The teenagers loved the games room as well as the adults. We loved everything about the house.We will definetly use you guys again and again and again. Will recommend to family and friends
The Pettigrew family, Memphis Tn June 2009
Many thanks to Maurice and family for letting us enjoy your lovely American home. We have found it very comfortable and well equiped. The pool has been a refreshing retreat from the record breaking 90 plus temperatures. Close to the Disney and Universal attractions as well as many restaurants, yet very peaceful without many neighbours.
