Our villa has a southwest facing pool with no rear neighbors for privacy, all day sun, and beautiful sunset views. It's located in a small, secure gated community surrounded by orange groves, and just about 12 MINUTES FROM DISNEY WORLD.
Orlando Sunshine Vacation Villa is a family-owned holiday home which is available for short-term rentals to families and groups of up to 10 people. Two families of 5 can stay in the villa for less than you would pay for a hotel - and with the privacy and amenities of this villa, you'll have a much better time!
You can stay for as little as 3 nights, or as long as you want. Normal stays are one or two weeks with arrival after 4pm on Saturday and leave by 10am the following Saturday. It's got the perfect blend of privacy and access to all the big Orlando attractions:
- 12 minutes from Disney and ideally located so you’re close to everything
- large 14’ x 28’ south-facing screened-in, heated* inground pool open to the south and west for all day sun on the pool; with a huge pool deck and plenty of loungers and chairs to soak up the sun; plus a covered lanai so you can relax in shade if you want
- 4 Bedroom /3 Bath spacious open concept single level floorplan has 2 master suites, each with their own bathroom
- backs onto open space and has no rear neighbours and corner lot gives space at the sides, so neighbouring homes don't block the sunshine or restrict your privacy
- located in a prestigious, exclusive gated community that's secure, exceptionally well maintained and private, with just 35 recently built homes
- sleeps up to 10 people so two families can stay together - saving money and having much more fun than in a hotel
- 37” high definition flat screen tv in the great room, and cable tv’s in 3 bedrooms
- fully equipped kitchen so you can choose to cook if you want
- AIR CONDITIONED games room with high quality 8' pool table, 32" flat screen tv, computer desk with multifunction printer and wifi high speed internet, and electronic dart board
- free wifi high speed internet access, so you can communicate with friends and family back home from your laptop, or ipad; and a multifunction fax/scanner/laser printer to print boarding passes or take care of business

- security alarms on all doors leading to the pool area to warn of small children going into it
- fully air-conditioned and heated for your comfort (even the games room)
- central to the big attractions of Orlando and Florida, plus lots of stores, a hospital and restaurants minutes away

*pool heating is an additional cost
The villa is tucked into an exclusive enclave in a quiet area, close to interstate 4 and highway 27. It's across highway 27 from the huge new retail development Posner Park, which is a brand new retail development on the site which used to be the Kansas City Royals baseball team spring training facility. Some stores are already open, and when completed Posner Park will have an incredible variety of shopping and activities available just a mile or two from the villa.
Our villa is in a small, exclusive, secure and exceptionally well maintained gated community of just 35 villas, built in 2003/2004. It's on a corner lot so neighbors at the side are not too close, and it backs onto open space so there are no neighbors behind to restrict your privacy. This direction also gives the pool full sunshine pretty much from mid-morning until sunset (you'll have a great view of the sunset since the view is completely open to the west). The direction of the pool is important in these villas because if the pool faces north, for example, the villa and neighboring villas will block the sunshine on the pool - and a sunny, warm pool like ours is definitely preferred.
Unlike other vacation home communities which may have many poorly maintained properties, where grass is not cut or watered and the whole area is in decay; the street and homes in our community are all incredibly well kept and there's no nasty surprises in the environment as you're approaching the villa - it's an absolutely beautiful location and you'll feel good arriving at it.
The small gated community was built in 2003/2004, and is unusual in how small it really is - there is only one street that loops around, and has just 35 homes. In many gated communities, there are dozens of streets and literally hundreds of homes - there are far too many people about to really give you the seclusion and privacy a gated community should provide. Some of the largest communities are the resort communities which boast a community pool and other facilities. The thing they don't tell you is that almost all the homes in their community are much too far away to actually make use of those facilities. Plus, do you really want to swim in a community pool with dozens of other people when you can have your own large private pool all to yourself?
Our Disney area vacation rental home is centrally located to all the big attractions and activities Orlando and Florida have to offer, including:
- Disney World: about 12 minutes (9.5 miles)
- Orlando International Airport: about 34 minutes (30 miles)
- Tampa Airport: about 1 hour and 9 minutes (64 miles)

Reviews for this vacation villa rental in Orlando, Florida
August 16, 2014
Overall we had a great experience. 2 families. 4 adults 6 kids and it worked well

Didn't want to leave!!
April 23, 2014
My husband, teenage son and I spent our spring break at Julia and Graham's villa. It was perfectly located by the attractions we wanted to see without the crowds of a typical spring break (We went to Universal, Kennedy Space center and Playalinda Beach). The villa was very clean and had everything we needed to make our vacation effortless. Julie responded very quickly to all my last minute questions before we arrived and was also easy to reach once we arrived in Orlando. We would love to go back and have already recommended it to friends. Thanks Julie and Graham for helping to make this spring break a memorable one!
April 19, 2014
This is the second time we have stayed at this house. Julie and Graham the owners have always been great to work with. The location is so close to Disney and the neighborhood is quiet and safe. The house has a great pool, game room and there is plenty of room for everyone. We will stay here again on our next visit.

Great Vacation Home!

This was an excellent vacation home!! I have 2 small children and the alarm alert for the backdoor to the pool was great to have! The house was clean and very spacious, I would definitely recommend it!!

Great Family Accomodation !
January 13, 2014
We fully enjoyed the Orlando Vacation Villa for our extended family vacation. 7 adults, 2 kids stayed comfortably at the villa and made great use of the pool and short drive to all the attractions that we wanted. Disney, Universal, Gatorland, Kennedy Space Center, Tampa Lightening Hockey Game and shopping all within a reasonable drive made for a very enjoyable family vacation that had something for everyone. Thanks for the great week!
November 12, 2013
My son and his family and my husband and I really enjoyed our stay in your house. The layout of the house was perfect for two families sharing the space and the kids enjoyed the pool immensely. We opted to have the pool heated and it was perfect. The only thing I found fault with was I thought the mattress needed to be a little more comfortable. Overall our trip was most enjoyable and we would definitely consider staying again.

Our Disney vacation was made complete because of this wonderful villa! It was a perfect place to come home to after a fun-filled day at the area parks. Very relaxing and beautifully decorated. No crowds to deal with, no elevators to wait for, no lines for places to eat. Just come home, enjoy a meal and take a swim after a long hot day in Orlando. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to the area! No more hotels for us - just all of the comforts of home!
A great villa with lots of extras.
June 29, 2013
Your villa was exactly as described, very comfortable and clean. Especially the tile floors. I would love to know what you use to clean them. We had everything we needed in the kitchen. The pans could use an update. The handle on the large skillet was very loose.The bag of ice in the freezer was a nice surprise. You have provided most everything anyone could possibly need. Though we didn't need them, there were booster seats, and other toddler necessities available to use. Books, games and a game system. The game room was fun too. A laundry basket in each bedroom would be an added bonus. My boys especially enjoyed the pool. They swam every day and a few evenings. I loved that you have alarms on the doors going to the pool. Being a mother of specials needs children who can't swim yet, it was an added level of comfort. Addition of the Door Guardian we spoke about on the front door would have made my safety concerns nonexistent. The reservation process was easy and convenient via pay pal. It was a pleasure to speak and work with Julie. She answered all of my questions and made the entire process seamless. We did not venture out to the major theme parks due to our son's sensory issues. However, we did go to Lego Land. It was a great place for younger children. The Lego city in the middle of the park was quite impressive. The outdoor waterpark was very nice also. If you're looking for a clean, quiet place to rest and just enjoy the sunshine. I would highly recommend this villa. Thank you Julie for making the rental process extremely easy. You have made your villa a home away from home. We would happily stay again should we make our way back to sunny Florida.
Cathy: thank you for your kind words. We are thrilled that your family had a great time. Thank you for letting us know about the pans, we will replace them. It is great to have feed back on LEGOLAND as we have not had anyone review that park before. We really hope to see you back sometime. Thanks Again.
p.s. We keep the tile floors so clean by getting on our hands and knees and scrubbing! We do a lot of extra work like this to ensure that our villa is exceptionally clean.

Vacation Villa Extravaganza!
May 12, 2013
We were so amazed at this villa we stayed at. It had all the comforts of home and then some! It was so nice to come "home" after a day at the parks and relax in the pool. My two grandkids also loved the game room. When we come back to Florida, this will be the home we will prefer above all else! Kudos!

Family Vacation for 25th anniversary
October 3, 2012
We were quite please with our stay at the Villa. We were not there as often as we would have liked to have been, but there is so much to do around Orlando I am sure you understand why. It was nice to go to a place at the end of the day that reminded all of us like home. Where we could sit and visit, play games or sit by the pool and talk about the events of the day and what we were doing tomorrow. We were all together in one place, something a hotel room could not offer. I am positive that we will go this route again when the next family vacation comes up. To a person who was skeptical about renting a home instead of a hotel room, well I am sold for life. Way better. You really feel like you are at home. I highly recommend anyone who is vacationing with family to go this route. Thank you for helping us make a terrific memory! Sincerely, Jim and Mary Cortelyou

We enjoyed our stay immensely. The villa, pool and all emenities were excellent. Distance to Disney was only about 12-15 minutes. We did our own cooking, BBQing and loved the pool when we were finished our days at Disney (the weather was very hot 100+ degrees). Would definitely book again and would recommend this villa and area to our friends and family.

The house was as described and even better. It was clean, had enough dishes and towels, three bathrooms for four rooms! Was nice to come back after a day at the parks and enjoy the facilities (swimming pool, pool table, basketball, etc.). We will recommand it to our friends.
June 20, 2012
The house was well kept. reasonably close to shopping and dining. Well stocked for cooking for yourself. The price was right. The drive into Disney was not too bad at all. Great locations. I would highly recommend staying in this area for families.

We really enjoyed our stay at this villa. It had a very clean smell as we entered. It was light and airy with a nice decor. The pool was private with no back door neighbors. Our kids enjoyed the game room. The owners were easy to work with. We would definitely recommend this villa.

The Best Villa we ever rented!
October 20, 2011
Dear Julie, We have no words to describe the great vacation we had in Orlando thanks to your lovely villa. Everything was so prefect; clean, fully equiped, the pool was great, etc. Above all we have to mention your understanding of all the visitor's needs. we'll send you some photos soon. Thank you so much again, The Golan family-Tel Aviv-Israel

Dear Graham and Julie, Thank you so much for providing such a terrific vacation home. Both the interior and exterior are immaculate. The inside is sunny and bright and the pool area gets the perfect amount of sunshine. The general layout of the house and the three bathrooms provide a great open concept family area with just the right amount of privacy for the bedrooms. It was an easy commute to both Disney and Cocoa Beach. We had a terrific time and will definitely be back for another visit(s)!

great vacation home

The house was everything that I had hoped. We had a great time in your vacation home. You made it so easy from the reservation, payment, directions and the stay. All the extra information you provided was so helpful. I would stay again in your home every time I am in the area. Thank you again for a wonderful experience. Maryellen
All that they claim!

Recently returned from 10 days at the villa. We are a family of 5 including 3 teen/young adults. We all enjoyed having enough space to be together for dinners, games and hanging out while also having the option to retreat to one of the 4 bedrooms for private time. Kids especially loved the wi-fi as it allowed them to keep in touch with their friends via facebook etc. Pool was lovely and outdoor space clean and quiet. Overall I found the house to be very well equipped with all the necessities as well as some little extra's! Thanks for helping to make the holiday great!

very nice house for that price everybody is so happy thanks

A perfect retreat
March 22, 2011
This home proved to be better than our expectations. Having had rented a home in Florida in the past and having had trouble, this vacation home was incredibly clean, ideally located, and a great place to return to after a day of being out and about with our children. I can honestly say the ease of booking this home and the always quick responses to our questions will be a reason we will choose to come back to this home in the future. Many thanks for a pleasant stay at your home, it has given my family many memories to look back at.

A great way to spend time with your grandchildren.

We had a grand time.The home was everything we expected and hoped for as a first time renter from you. We will be renting from you again. The pool was fantastic and the kids even enjoyed it on the couple of cooler evenings thanks to the pool heat. The location was very quiet and only minuts from all the attractions and shopping, and driving to either coast was within a hour and a half away. Highly recommended by us. Dan & DonnaDan

Just wanted to let you know what a great time we had in your vacation home! The whole experience from booking, directions, and amenities the home provided was excellent....... no surprises, the home was better than we expected. We all especially enjoyed the warm pool, and the games room where several pool tournaments were held! We will definitely be returning and recommend you to our friends. Thanks so much again!
July 1, 2010
What a perfect way to vacation! A home away from home. Everything we needed was right there at our fingertips. The parks were only 10-12 minutes away, and having a pool to ourselves was great for the kids. The gated community put our mind at ease and all the neighbors that we came upon were nice and friendly, always eager to offer up a wave. A great time was had by all, we will most certainly be back! Thank-you for an amazing vacation experience!
I just want to say thank you for letting us stay in the villa. We enjoyed the house very much. I hope that you found everything OK after our departure.
Hi Julie and graham
Just a quick note to thank you for my returned deposit.
And to say we really enjoyed your home,what a wonderful time we had there,our kids were so sad to leave. Might be back next year!!!
We could of stayed another week it was that relaxing, Again thanks for everything Kind regards, S.D.
Dear Julie and Graham,
My family and I stayed in your Florida home in November, 2009. We loved it and had a great time. I have since stayed in other privately owned homes and been disappointed. We have often talked about how nice your place was and my step-mother has just passed your information to a friend of hers.
I just wanted to let you know we have often reflected fondly of our time in your house. You put a great deal of thought into making your guests feel comfortable and have done a great job. There were tons of details that you thought of- thank you! We have talked about renting your house again in the near future.
I just reviewed your photos and see that you have updated things since we were there. I know it has been several years since we have stayed in your home but we wanted to let you know you did a superb job with this place.

My family - husband, 2 daughters, 2 sil - 3 grandchildren could not have enjoyed your villa more.. Well one daughter and husband who had the twin beds did say a queen would be better. On arrival it was so warming to come to a home and step outside to the pool so kids, young and old could swim off the travel stress. One night after the kids were asleep the adults had a movie night, complete with pop corn, cheese and a glass of wine for the ladies. The dads challenged their sons to basketball and pool and many laughs were shared and memories created. This trip we did the Villa for 4 nights and then moved to Disney property for the New Years Eve. Our next trip will all be spent in the comfort of your lovely, well supplied, safe home. Thank You for sharing. The Pierceall's Jan.2014
We have enjoyed staying at your villa during our stay in Florida. We would not have changed a thing. Everything was well kept up and the neighborhood was quiet. I know several people that are planning to visit Disney in the furture and have already given them the info and hope that they will contact you and stay in your home during their stay. Thank you for helping to make our trip a success. Thanks again. S.M. June 2010
Charlie and I wanted you to know, we had a great vacation....Your villa was wonderful. All the nice things of home. The girls, my son in law, and the grandchildren loved the pool. I am glad that I found your place....Some of our friends have asked about your place, I will be telling them the good news....I will refer them to your site. Again, thank you for having such a wonderful villa. We definately are coming back, and longer the next time.
Thanks for the awesome villa. D.G. Oct.2010
Hard to believe our amazing family vacation has come and gone but our smiles are still on!!!!! We had a fantastic time! Your villa felt like home and we treated it as such! We are talking about coming back in two years and would love to stay in your villa again! We have already praised your rental to family and friends this past Easter weekend and we will definately offer up your info to anyone who asks us! I hope everything was left in great condition with your villa! You have been a pleasure to deal with throughout this whole process which made our trip and stay that much more enjoyable!!!! Thank You J&B L. Apr. 2010
The villa was spotless on our arrival; freshly scrubbed and vacummed. Thank you for the abundant supply of towels, including beach type towels for use by the pool. I would rate our experience as 10 out of 10!!! The pricing/value was fabulous for us; a 10/10. The math is easy: my husband and I funded this trip as our Christmas gift to the family. To stay at a hotel/Disney resort I would have needed 3 rooms to accomodate this adult group; we did well at your home for a fraction of the cost and enjoyed enhanced privacy and amenities. Thank you for that! Hope to contact you again for future adventure!!! C.R. Jan.2010
"We loved your villa and would gladly return to enjoy more time there. The week went by way too fast!! Everything stated in the ad is as advertised on personal inspection of the villa. I really liked that you showed the dates the photos were taken as sometimes what you see in pictures is not what you get.
You were extremely easy to deal with and I was impressed with how quickly you responed to our inquiry. The community was quiet, clean and safe. The exterior of the villa is inviting, and well maintained. I love palm trees so was happy to see the one on the lawn.
The interior was immaculate, an excellent layout, spacious, well equipped and just how I would decorate a vacation home. Loved all the lighthouse decor!!!! The villa was extremely clean in all areas. Everything looked well cared for (an improvement over previous rentals).
We loved it (the villa) and would love to own it! The games room was a fun bonus and we loved the pool. There wasn't anything we didn't like. The pool temperature was fine and we had great fun in it - even my brother who usually doesn't swim!
I would say (rating enjoyment of the villa) 9.5 out of 10. The pricing was fair and current with what we have paid previously. Absolutely (would recommend the villa to others), we have already been singing your villas praises!
As a final comment I would just like to thank you for the opportunity to stay and feel at home in your lovely villa. I hope you don't have to wait too long before you can enjoy it! As they say in the movies - we'll be back!! "

"We were very happy with the house, it was absolutely spotless and looked exactly like the pictures (which of course we liked). The little extras like the computer/printer and the free Canada/USA phone calls were a nice bonus and helped us a lot with our day to day planning. The area/location of the house was very nice also, quiet and safe and we were very comfortable there. So comfortable in fact, none of us wanted to leave.....ha ha.
Thank you so much for making the rental process of your house very easy and for all of the communication (right down to the info. binder in the house). We would for sure, stay there again and we would definitely recommend it to our friends and associates."

"A family member recommended this amazing villa to me and I was not disappointed! A very easy drive from Orlando Airport and located in a very well-maintained gated community.
This first thing I noticed when I walked in the front door was how clean the villa was. My husband travels around the world for business and we have stayed in many fine hotels, but I can say without a doubt that this villa is the cleanest place I have every stayed!
The location is perfect because the neighborhood is quiet and peaceful; however, it's just a short drive to lots of shops and restaurants. Another huge plus was the pool area, which got sun all day. It was lovely to sit outside in the sun as soon as I woke up in the morning. The villa had plenty of room for 8 more. The three bathrooms would be great for a larger group. The bed I slept in was very comfortable - better than my mattress at home.
I would recommend this property to anyone and have already told all of my friends about it. Hoping to return again soon. Owners were very pleasant to deal with."
