Reviews for this vacation villa rental in Kissimmee, Florida
Jacksonvilla is "the best"!
November 21, 2013
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!
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.
November 4, 2013
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!

Very pleasant experience
August 23, 2013
Stayed in jacksonvilla for a week.. Our only REGRET? Wish we had stayed longer! It was my family's first time in Florida and am glad we had a very pleasant experience. I'm so glad we rented mike's rental home. We had an emergency family situation and mike was so kind to accommodate our request. We are truly grateful. Also while staying at his home, we had a couple very minor issues. Within the same hour of raising them, the caretaker was there to resolve. The location is convenient as it is close to Walmart and publix grocery store . Thanks Mike for your kind and generous help. We are looking forward to our next visit!
Hi Grace and Abraham,
Many thanks for choosing to stay at Jacksonvilla. I am really pleased we were able to find alternative dates for you and it was our pleasure to welcome you as guests. We love to hear that our guests have enjoyed their stay and have great memories to take back home. We hope we have the opportunity and privilege of welcoming you back soon. Once again thank you!

This home was very nice & we enjoyed the heated pool when we came back from the parks.The items available in game room for use needs to be updated(items missing) & lights need to be replaced in pool(burned out)
Jacksonvilla met and exceeded all our expectations

Excellent accommodation well placed for Disney parks. As a group of 3 families (6 adults, 6 kids) sharing for 2 weeks we found the villa comfortable, well equipped and spacious.

We recently stayed in Jackson-villa for two weeks with a party of 12 consisting of 10 adults and two kids. The villa provided plenty of space for a large party and all of our needs. The games room was great for the kids. Wifi within the villa was ideal for smart phones etc with a PC for use within the Clubhouse. Clean and tidy and well maintained. Bruce and Renee were really helpful and easily reached at the clubhouse right next door.Pool and spa provided. Some great relaxation time. Clubhouse being next door with all the amenties was a big bonus. Mike provided some excellent imformatiom regarding shops & restaurants etc before we headed out & called to make sure every thing was fine when we arrived. Would definately recomend this villa.
Many thanks for the review Robert. We work hard to ensure high standards and continue to upgrade the amenities. As always we are delighted to hear our guests have had a great time and appreciate the facilities on offer.
Please be assured of a very warm welcome for yourself, friends and family in the future.

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
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.
Beautiful, Relaxing House!!!
June 25, 2012
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!!!

Superb holiday home located in a quiet area but within easy reach of local shops and supermarkets. The house has six very good bedrooms with the two en suites being excellent. The downstairs area concisting of lounge, formal dining area and utility room are well laid out and the pool area is more than adequate. The information book in the house contained lots of useful information about all aspects ofn the area includung reteraunts, entertainment, air boat rides and of special interest to our party, local golf courses. The villa is also sited next door to the estates club house which has a large swimming pool and a childrens play area. All in all a very pleasant experience which we hope to repeat next year.
Relaxing Vacation Home
May 2, 2012
This Vacation home was an enjoyable experience for our family's spring break vacation. Plenty of room for the 6 of us and the pool and spa were used daily. House was clean and had everything we needed. Location was good (close to supermarket) and short cut to Disney made things easier. If we come back to Orlando in the future this is were we will try to stay.

AWESOME place to relax
March 15, 2012
Thanks to excellent service from the cleaning and management staff, we had a very relaxing vacation. The house is well kept with a nice layout so you can relax in either living room our by the pool. Comfy beds added to our stay. This house is right beside the clubhouse where a larger pool is great for swimming and playing. We loved the location. It is away from the business of Orlando but close enough to go and see the attractions you want .

I have to say that we loved the house. It was very beautiful, peaceful and comfortable for the 13 of us, including kids! Totally equiped and clean.Overall= Excelent! I would have like more time to enjoy it, but it will be a next time. Orlando is truly tempting to live. We had a fantastic vacation!!!
Thank you for your kind comments. We are delighted you enjoyed your vacation in Jacksonvilla and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future. You are our first guests from Puerto Rico so please pass on the word about Jacksonvilla to friends and family.
Best wishes and happy new year,

Great place to stay near Disney
September 21, 2011
We stayed 8 nights with our large family (5 kids), and this house was perfect for us. The private pool was great, and we also spent quite a bit of time in the large clubhouse pool next door. We visited Disney 5 days, and the trip from house to parking was about 15-20 minutes using the 429 toll road. The beds were good, plenty of towels for swimming, house was nice and clean, and the owners were very easy to work with. One of the AC units was not working one day, but it was fixed promptly after a call to the property manager. I would rent this house again if we return to the Disney area.

excellent orlando villa
September 5, 2011
I have been on vacation to florida 7 times and have never stayed in a villa that can compete with jacksonvilla. The facilities on offer were superb and it really felt like a home away from home. Location is excellent and the clubhouse was another luxury. The owners really take pride in their home and I would not hesitate about returning. ps, especially liked having high definition cable on the huge flatscreen tv.
August 22, 2011
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!
MJ's Florida Villa
June 24, 2011
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.

Owner Supplied Testimonials
Lovely big home with a great pool/spa, April 14, 2011
By Jennifer Brewer (Fredericton, NB, Canada)
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!!!
Mar 11 - Spacious, nice pool, great for families, March 22, 2011
By Donna Grift (Ontario, Canada)
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 en-suite 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 hot tub pool (optional to heat it to hot tub 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!

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...
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,

Christmas/New Year 10/11. Susan Benjamin and family, Caro, MI, USA
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 vacation 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.

We had a wonderful time. I hope we can come back again....We will come back again soon.

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,

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 and 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!

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

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 and Ross Nelson. Belfast, N.Ireland
We stayed at Jacksonvilla for three weeks during March/April 2010. 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.

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

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.

Michael, we had a great time and would have no problem using or recommending your villa once again. We were happy and will contact you again should we need a 5 bedroom.
July 09 - The Craigs. Andrew, Angela, Philip, Laura and Michael. Belfast, N.Ireland
We had a great time staying in Jacksonvilla. The large villa enabled us to spread out and it easily accommodated the four adults and six grown up teens. Everyone enjoyed the gamesroom the pool area which was private, as described. Whether relaxing by the pool, in the pool on our lilos (with seats), or having lilo races in the pool, it was great. We enjoyed several enjoyable BBQs, watched the sun go down and were able to enjoy the Florida heat late into the evening.
The teens made great use of the Clubhouse facilities next door and this is an excellent asset particularly for groups with children. We also took several trips to the lovely beaches and the cool box proved very useful for our picnic and drinks.
We will definitely be recommending it to friends and family.

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

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.
