Description from owner

Florida is open- so we lowered our daily rates for April and May by 10%

After a year of shutdown because of the Covid 19 epidemic -Chattysdream is now back on line, Chattysdream is a spacious 7 room 1700 sq. ft villa in a gated community.The villa has a well landscaped private pool, spa and games room. Spacious king beds in both master bedrooms with private bathrooms. Two twin beds in the other two bedrooms with full bath with tub/shower between the two rooms.

Villa is available for 4 Pm check in and 10 AM check out as we often have guest arriving on the same day. We offered "instant bookings" and do not add any hidden Credit Card fees. Normally, security deposits are refunded within 10 days of departure as the villa is checked within hours of your departure . We use a "special four digit " personal punch code on the villa entry door that changes with each booking.

Our comfy Villa has a large enclosed lanai with a large 15 x 30 ft pool with a spa and comfy pool furniture. Swaying palms and flowers planted around the pool cage add privacy and a touch of Florida just outside your living room door. The pool and spa have built in lights for night swimming. Ceiling fan and table and four chairs in lanai. Villa has large outside gas grille in private grilling area just to left of the pool. All pool chairs and lounges received new "wild orchid designed custom made cushions in February of 2019.

UPGRADES-This year we put a 50 inch smart tv in the living room. Last year we upgraded to an oversized paver driveway and paver walkway. We also put a new roof and gutters on the villa, painted the exterior, and refreshed the gardens. In 2018 we decided to do some major upgrades including a new ac/heat system and new faux wood blinds to replace the old mini-blinds. We also drained and resurfaced the pool and spa and put new carpet in all bedrooms.

In 2017 we replaced the popular animal design furniture with a soft comfy micro fiber set. The three-seat couch has two powered reclining units with a flip down center with push button controls to operate a spine/back/lumbar massager with an self-timer option for heat. Each unit is independent of the other unit, so one can chill while the other gets a massage. The love seat has two manual recliners. We thought guest might enjoy a back massage at the end of a long day at the Parks. We also added new coffee tables and end tables. At the request of some of our annual guest, who we consulted, we moved the old love seat and animal chair into the games room so kids would have more hang space. We also added some USB plug outlets in the games room and at the kitchen counter.

The washer and dryers were fine but we decided to replace them with more efficient and quieter units and replaced the kitchen stove that was only 4 years old. We also replaced both king mattress sets with Sealy Postuerpedic Medium Firm Euro Pillow top mattresses with mattress protectors and new foundations. We also added anti - allergen pillow protectors. (note the main pillows are replaced yearly).

An assortment of new board games, including a huge checker board were added at the request of some guest.

The living room has large entertainment center with 50 inch HD/TV, Blue ray dvd player. The King Master suites have 26 inch HD/TV's and twin rooms have 19 inch HD/TV's.

Villa has ceiling fans in all rooms. All bedrooms are carpeted and the rest of the villa is tile floors.

Getting Green. In 2011 we installed 14 inch solar sun tunnels in the kitchen and living room ceilings that flood the areas with natural sun light and we added solar attic fans to cool the villa more efficiently.

Game room has a regulation size pool table, 7 foot air hockey table, ceiling fan plus table and chairs and love seat.

Villa furnishings include baby high chair, Pak & play and baby walker. All linens included plus hair dryers and a full size washer and dryer and a fully equipped kitchen with many counter appliances.

Nice corner lot, located only a short walk from the supersized community pool. No Pets Allowed due to family allergies. Smoking is not permitted in the villa or in the games room. Violation of the No Smoking or No Pet Policy will result in the immediate termination of the short term rental agreement and forfeiture of the $200 security deposit. Smoking is permitted outside in Pool Lanai.

We recently completed our stay at this beautiful location, and it couldn't have been more perfect! Initial contact with the owner was wonderful, all business detailed in a fun and comfortable manner. We were never left with questions, everything was handled professionally and quickly. The house itself is beautiful, four bedrooms all beautifully appointed. It was meticulously clean, and almost all amenities were provided. Do a shopping trip before you arrive to pack toilet paper, paper towel and soap as there is limited amounts. Besides the food you will eat that is all you will need! And you will not want to leave this beautiful place so buy lots of food and drink, it is an oasis from the hectic Disney life. The pool and spa were also very clean and lovely, and we could not have asked for a better place to stay. Traffic to Disney World can be a little busy, count on 25 - 30 minutes during rush hours. Thanks so much Tom for sharing this with us! Looking forward to our next trip!!!

Owner's reply: Thanks folks for the very kind words. I have passed them onto management as well, as they are the final link between us and you. Glad you had a good stay and a great vacation. That is very important to Kathy and I. You and your family and friends are always welcome at Chattysdream. We thank God for the wonderful guest that He sends to our "home away from home". Cheers to all.

“Super nice place to relax and have fun”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2015

House was better than advertised. Very comfortable and fun to stay at. Especially with the pool. Had just about anything you would need in the kitchen to save money and cook at home. Just outside the Disney zone so it's more quieter than the rest of the city but close enough and easy enough to get to everything. The city of Clermont is growing fast and there is more and more stuff around where this place is located. New supermarket less than a mile away and a super Walmart just past that. Very enjoyable and reasonably priced. Will def stay again if we decide to do another trip down. Kids loved the pool table, air hockey and pool after hours.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Hi Tom and Kathy, I am writing to let you that we had a wonderful time at your vacation home. We had previously stayed at a vacation home about 3 years back and were very disappointed with it. So when I came across your villa we were a bit cynical. When we arrived Thursday night we were taken aback. The house is absolutely gorgeous, spotless beautifully decorated and it had everything! The only we had to do was buy food. And the fact that Tom called the night we arrived was the icing on the cake. We decided when we come back to Florida we will definitely stay there again. So thanks again for having such a wonderful home and giving us the pleasure to stay in it.

Thanks Again,

TOM AND CATHY, we had a wonderful week.We met the Crane family (birds)and they ate crackers out of John's hand. Everyone was in awe. The crane came right up to us. Again thanks for allowing us to enjoy your home. We all loved the air hockey game, everyone had fun with the girls tying to beat them. Your home is a great place, it's quiet and peaceful, which is a real plus when you leave the hub bub of Disney. The traffic is terrific, we can't think of anything that would make it better.

I was thinking on the way into work this morning that I needed to e-mail you. Everything was absolutely perfect. The house was a delight, a real home away from home. Even the young children were comfortable there. We love the home's layout with the two master suites. The baby thought she had her own personal pool in the garden tub! I didn't think we would even use the pool table & air hockey because we are usually so busy when we're there, but they nicely filled in for those "down times". We enjoyed the pool & spa every morning and again in the evenings. And of course there was Disney in between! Thank you so much for making our stay so wonderful & relaxing. We trust that everything was found in order

We received the security deposit last week. I just want to say thank you for everything. We really enjoyed your home in Florida. It was really nice having the extra space. All the kids had their own space so if someone wanted to sleep in or stay up late they could do so without bothering another family member. The pool table was also a great hit. We even had tournaments going on. The weather was kind of grummy but we still had a great time. Once again thank you and if we plan a trip back to Florida we may look you up again.

We enjoyed our stay this past February in your Orlando home. The game
room, pool, and spa got plenty of use during our week stay. After a long
day at the parks it was so nice to be able to have room to relax in a house
instead of a hotel room (we have 4 kids under 10 plus I brought my mom - we
needed the 4 bedrooms!). Our 3 year old daughter came down with a stomach
flu for a day, I can't imagine how stressful the day would have been if we
were stuck in a hotel with a sick child. Having a house allowed the other
children to play in the pool and game room while the 3yr old rested in her
own bedroom.
I looked at several houses on line before I choose yours...I felt more
comfortable renting from someone who first of all lived in the U.S. and
second of all regularly uses the house themselves. My intuition paid off,
your helpfulness and communication far exceeded our expectations. Also
thank you for sending the security deposit back so promptly. Please feel
free to use me as a reference.

We returned late last night from a wonderful week at Chatty's Dream. The house was more beautiful than the pictures online. It worked out perfectly for us. Disney was a hop skip and jump away, as were the shops and the main roads. Everything was beautiful. The people in the area were very nice. We even started looking at potentially buying in the area. For now, we are keeping Chatty's Dream as our next vacation spot. You were great to work with - you constantly returned my emails faster than I expected and always had a great personality. I am so happy we found Chatty's Dream and you and your wife. We look forward to visiting again soon!!! Thank you so much.

We were sad to see the house in our rear view mirror but also very glad to get home. Tom, if you need any references or anyone asks to email someone for a reference, please feel free to give them my email. We were very happy with everything! and I would have NO problem telling anyone that!

Thank you again and I hope that we can visit Chatty's Dream again soon! If you EVER think of selling it, please let me know!!!!

Subject: Re: reference August 22, 2007

Yes we did rent from them the last week in July. The house was immaculate, the neighbors were nice yet not intrusive. It was our opinion that the house looked better in person than online. Tom was very quick to answer all of our questions before and during the stay. We decided to heat the hot tub when we got there and they had it on the same day we asked. I would suggest that you have it heated. The house is truly about 15-20 minutes door to door to Disney, the shops are very close to the house, Universal wasn't very far either - but they are all far enough that you don't have the traffic going to and from every day. I would highly recommend that you rent the house. We are planning next year's trip already and we will definitely be using that house if it is available. Oh, and they were very fast in getting our deposit back as well!
Hope you have fun!!! MA New York

Dear Sawyers,
What a lovely time we had in Orlando. It was perfect and as one of Gary's daughters said, "this home is what made the vacation" It was spacious, comfortable, conducive to visiting, perfect for the kiddos to enjoy the pool and the games in the games room. One grandson would stop as he went from the pool to air hockey to tell me that "your house is awesome!" you can take a dip when you wake up in the morning.
We discovered the west entrance to Disney off of the 429. We understand that it has not been open very long, but it was definitely the avenue we used to visit Disney.
Thanks for sharing your home. Gary and I agree that this was the most relaxing vacation we have had in a long time. We will certainly recommend you to others who may be planning a trip to Orlando. I can't imagine a better way to spend a vacation. Pat B and family, Missouri

We were really taken back by how well your home was decorated and well-maintained. It was such a joy for us!! We were able to visit all the theme parks in which our boys LOVED all the roller coasters. I would have to say the best part of our vacation was the fact that our boys got to see the Discovery space shuttle come in for a landing at Kennedy Space Center on Wednesday. What an historic moment!! It was fascinating!! We hope we will have the opportunity to re-visit you home in the future and we will surely recommend your home to others. Take care.

We arrived home from Florida late last night and we must admit it was very difficult to leave Chatty's Dream. Your home was everything we hoped it would be. It was very clean, nicely decorated and so comfortable. When we arrived the table was set so nicely, we hated to use it. The pool and game room were a big hit with the kids. They loved coming home and swimming in the evening as it got dark. Our youngest child developed and ear infection while on our trip so he and I spent a bit of extra time at the house. I was so thankful to have the extra space.

Thank you so much for making Chatty's Dream available for many others to enjoy. Our entire experience from the time we contacted you through our weeks stay was very professional. We will definitely keep Chatty's Dream in mind for a future return to the Orlando area. Thank you again and we hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I hope the best for you and your family. I will certainly recommend your home to friends!

I am so sorry I am emailing you late. We have been here since about 9pm. I was absolutely impressed with your beautiful home. All of the testimonials I read on your web are absolutely true. I walked into this beautifully, tastefully decorated immaculate home and was amazed. It is absolutely perfect. My kids are in love. They want to move in forever. They jumped in the pool right away. I picked the gold room (as you predicted) and my mom-in-law picked the red room (also as you predicted). I was impressed with the size of the bathrooms.

Your home is exactly that, a home. Nothing represents a "hotel" type atmosphere as some other homes I have rented do. The linens, furniture, dishes (thanks for having plastic for the kids), decor and everything else is as if we were in an actual home. Which we are! Thank you for allowing us to stay here for this short weekend. We are absolutely impressed. It is so nice to sit here by the pool and type this email to you.

We are headed to Sea World in the morning and Halloween Horror Night (just my husband and me) tomorrow night. I feel the children will hold no grudge that they couldn't tag along. They have plenty to do here with the pool, the pool table and the air hockey table. Sincerely, EB Miami, FL.

10/08/08 From Shawnea
Just wanted to let you know that we're back from FL and our stay at your beautiful home in Clermont. The house was great, very clean and well kept. We enjoyed the nights relaxing in a nice, warm pool jacuzzi after the long, exhausting days at the parks. The neighborhood was nice and quiet and never encountered any problems entering or exiting. We enjoyed the Cranes and saw them in other people's yards most days when we were headed out but on our last full day there, they were in the back yard and I really got them to make noise.
We had a good time other than waiting for our daughter (almost 18) to get ready in the mornings and the unbelievable amount of crowds that were at Disney. I couldn't believe there were that many people there...and they say we're in a recession (HA HA). Thank you so much for working with us on our date changes. If we ever decide that we're going to go back, we will definately look you up again; in the meantime I will let everyone know that your home is great and they most definately won't be disappointed staying there. Thank you, Shawnea A. ,Missouri

We will definitely recommend your house to anyone we know going to Orlando and when we go back for a vacation, you'll be the first person we call. We've stayed in a few houses over the past few years but yours is the best we've seen. The kids loved the pool ( the adults did too!!) and it was just nice to sit outside and relax after a full day at the parks.
It was a pleasure to meet you and your new tree was doing well when we left!!

Greetings to you and Cathy,
I am sooo very sorry to be so late in launching this e-mail to you. The last few weeks have been an adventure in itself.
We were so very appreciative of your generous offer to stay Saturday and Sunday to allow Hank to recover enough to travel. That's just what he/we needed. You have a very lovely, inviting home. We felt right at home the minute we walked in. The grand kids just squealed and squealed with all the space. As a matter of fact, the 2 youngest didn't get out of their beds to find their Mom not one nite (which happens often at home). I don't know if it was the pool activity that wore them out to the point they just didn't wake up or they just felt so safe.
We arrived back home and sought out a way of seeing a surgeon at the local military hospital and was blessed to get one in the same week. Hank had his gall bladder removed and while recovering from that had a tooth extracted as well. He has recovered fantastically and we are so blessed.
Even though our vacation didn't go the way we had planned it, we did have a very good time while at your home. The kids played in the pool, fed the cranes in the yard, and watched Disney movies from your collection. I would recommend your wonderful home to any one looking for a quiet, 'home away from home' within driving distance to the Disney attractions.
We visited the Church you recommended and couldn't have felt more at home than if we had been at our own church. The kids loved the individual services offered for them as well.
I have attached some of the 400+ pictures our 'Daughter-in-love" took with her digital camera. Please feel free to post any or all (LOL) of them as you would. We Love Chatty'sDream.

We talked to another family while we were at Disney and they had stayed on Disney grounds and they were complaining about how they were stuck in a small hotel room at night. Boy were they jealous when they heard that we were paying almost the same amount as them, yet we had a huge house with a private pool!!! I can't say enough good things about your house!

Everything about the house was as advertised or better. The game room was a big hit and the kids and I enjoyed several games of pool and air hockey. The pool was worth every penny. The kids used the pool every single day and it was the perfect remedy to the scorching midday heat. All of the rooms, including the restrooms, were spacious and comfortable. Having access to the grill was great and we used it during our stay. The location was excellent as well. It was within short distance of all of the Disney parks and the drive on 192 and 27 were very easy compared to the traffic on I-4. On a few days we left the parks early afternoon, went home and relaxed in the pool, and then returned back to the parks. The home's location made this possible. It was also located very close to any stores we needed access to. So overall, we were very impressed and thankful to find such a great house to spend our vacation in.

Hi Tom,First, thank you so much for sharing your great vacation home. It was everything you advertise and more. We were 4 adults and 3 children, 7,5 and 17 months. Plenty of room for all of us. Having the ability to wake at different times in the morning without disturbing others was great. The kids could watch tv or take advantage of being in their own private room and get ready in their own private bathroom which they loved.
The home was immaculate and considering the number of bugs outside (it was love bug season), completely bug free inside. Everything is so conveniently located close to the house. We went to the super Wal-Mart almost every day. Anyone renting from you should check the many stores close by before buying souveniers in the park. Of course we bought swords, sabers, etc. for the kids in the park but magnets, totes, pens, etc. for Aunt Susie and others were a lot cheaper outside the park.
Now that the children are older we're hoping to this trip again soon. We will definately give you a call. Thanks again - we had a GREAT time.

Hi Tom & Kathy,

We are back in Canada and just wanted to drop a line to say Thank You for letting us rent your beautiful vacation home. Your home is immaculate and had everything that we needed for a great vacation. We were very comfortable and had a very relaxing time. The sun tunnels allow lots of light into the house, which is great because I love sunlight. Also we had a couple of severe thunderstorms while we were there and it was pretty neat to see the lightening coming in through the sun tunnels. The pool was a favourite for both of us and we spent a lot of time out there, in fact I passed up going to the theme parks to stay at home and enjoy the pool. The covered lanai was great because it allowed us to sit outside even during the couple of rainy days we had. The privacy fence by the bbq was great and my husband bbq'd every night. You have a very private lot and it seemed like we were the only people around because we couldn't see any other pools etc. We did meet your neighbour and he seems very nice, he came over to say hello along with his three dogs and a cat. I am an animal lover so I said hello to them through the fence. We saw the crane fly overhead but he didn't stop for a visit. You have such a beautiful spot that we hated to leave.

We will definitely recommend your home to all of our friends. This was our most enjoyable trip to Florida so far.

We enjoyed our stay very much and we are thinking about returning next year. We were thinking about March 22nd to April 5th, 2012. Do you have rates available yet for that time frame?

Have a great day,

Hi Tom thought I would send you a quick email to let you know we arrived home safe & sound early yesterday morning. (We were a little disappointed the volcanic ash cloud had dissipated as we had been hoping (almost) for another couple of days in sunny Florida!!!) We will just have to save up and come back again! Once again, we had a fantastic stay at ChattysDream -it really does feel like home from home for us all, and rest assured we will return again no doubt!
Thanks for phoning during our stay. You take such good care of us, and are extremely thoughtful. We do appreciate it. Back home now to some sunshine, hoping this is the start of some nice weather in bonnie Dundee! Our weather in Florida was VERY hot indeed. We will make sure we come April or October in the future (our daughter starts school this year, so thats when school holidays are, which will suit us fine!). No problems to report at the villa -everything was super, as we expect. Thanks again for trusting us to live in your beautiful holiday home, and for making it happen so easily. Your are a star! Hope to be in touch sometime soon to book again -fingers crossed for a Lottery win!!! Take care, Janel (& husband, daughter, mother, aunty!

First of all, we want to thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful home! It is perfect for us! We are having a great time exploring Disney and the area! We now know what everyone talks about! This is a magical place! I can go on and on, but have to get back to Magic Kingdom (had to take a break from the heat and humidity). Anyway, we noticed that check out time is 10:00 am, and was wondering if we could stay longer? Chad would like to use the tickets up tomorrow and "chill out" Saturday before heading home. I do not know if this makes any sense...bottom line , can we stay longer????? We do not want to assume anything.
Thank you so much! Cami-Canada

Hi Tom. Did know where to post this but thought you might need it for your future occupants. Here is our review of our 9/17/11 thru 9/24/11 stay:
From the first time I contacted Tom to get information, to the last day of our stay, it was a wonderful, relaxing experience. Tom is very easy to get a hold of to arrange everything, including making payments until our arrival. The house was beautiful and exactly like the pictures! It is in a great location, with everything you need nearby. Walmart and the grocery store Publix are just down the street in case of essentials or groceries. Laundry soap is not provided, but Dishwasher soap was. The water pressure in the showers are great but very strong, so expect that when entering. It only took us about 15 minutes to get to the Disney gates (probably would have been less time if GPS wasn't trying to get through the wrong gates). There are many different restaurants to choose from nearby if you don't want to cook. But if you do want to stay in, all the essentials for cooking are provided. We took a short drive past the Mission Park entrance gates to Lake Louisa, where we saw a large turtle, many butterflies, and even a deer! That was pretty cool and didn't cost anything but a small entry fee at the entrance gates. We had no issues with the house, it was clean and inviting. The pool was nice and clean, although we were gone so much, we only got to use it once. We highly recommend anyone staying at Chatty's Dream house. It was a very pleasant experience. Thanks again!!!

Hi Tom! Louis said hi and when u get a chance to give him a call. We had a fabulous time! It was just the two of us this time and we sure enjoyed it! We kind of made it a second honeymoon. I did send you a message last week to thank you so very much for letting us come a day early. Louis surprised me with that the day we drove there. You are so kind to open your home and your heart to us. The sun tunnels are awesome! Things seemed so much brighter and we didn't have to turn on the lights until early evening. We went to Discovery Cove this time there and I got to swim with the dolphins!! Amazing!!!. We arrived back home to a high of 43 degrees and 20 mph winds with gusts up to 50 mph....I already miss Florida! We are already talking about a return visit! Thanks again for your generosity! Blessings! Kelly, Indiana.

Review #4781212 9/30/11-10/8/11 Martinez,
We have never had such prompt and pleasant exchange as we did with Tom from the the first moment to the last. The house was perfect for us. Our son was sick the first several days and Tom was so nice to express his concern. Then we couldn't keep our son out of the pool! I think he had as much fun there as he did at Disney. The house was clean and tastefully decorated - more like a home than just a house. The pool and spa were clean. The location was great and easy to get to. We will definitely be back and recommend Chattysdream to all of our friends. Thank you for sharing your home.

I don't know if you noticed, but we added to your stroller fleet. We decided that we needed a single stroller so I got on craigslist when we got there and bought one and then just left it there for you. Now you literally have every stroller option for your renters.

Tom,I hope your travels went well yesterday. We had two perfect little girls on our flight. Both were very excited to find the Mickey and Minnie you left behind. Thank you very much. The Villa is amazing again. We love the skylights, and the vegetation has grown up so much from 2 years ago. The weather is supposed to be fantastic for the next week, and we are off to get ready for the parks.
Thanks again for letting us use your wonderful home.

Subject: Thank you..Hi Tom:

Just wanted to drop you an e-mail, to thank you for allowing us to rent your villa in the last of March and first of April. This was our second stay at your beautiful villa and once again you and your home were the perfect hosts. The villa was as usual perfect and we enjoyed ever minute of our two week stay. If any one is thinking of renting and needs a recommendation of your hospitality and willingness to accommodate any requests please feel free to use us as a reference. The villa is everything it is advertised to be and more.

It was a wonderful surprise to meet you in person as well, it was a treat to put a face to the friendly voice on the phone.

We would like to return to Orlando around the same time in 2014. I know that you are at the villa during this time, and that this is some time in the future, but if you are still renting and we can work out dates we would love to return.

Again, thank you for letting us be return guests to your beautiful villa, and we will be in touch.

Your thankful guests.

Thanks for the update. We had a wonderful vacation. The house is fabulous, even better in person! I have to tell you the pool and the game room was a great hit! We enjoyed everything about the house. We ate our meals by the pool every night. You have a beautiful house and we're looking forward to returning. I'm happy to hear that Kevin is doing well and we were happy to help out. You take care and keep in touch. June D. New Jersey

Hi Tom, I apologize for the late response, I returned from Florida and I am just catching up with everything.
We had a FABULOUS time at the house! We LOVED the set-up, the privacy and all of the comfortable means provided. The instructions, details, directions, everything was excellent and eliminated any questions. Thank you for taking the time to provide such.
As I am a clean freak and don't feel it is appropriate for others to clean up after us, I left the house in great condition for the cleaning crew, and they had very little to do beyond the basics. We contributed some things to the house and for the beach, including a Styrofoam cooler. I'm hopeful the crew leaves everything so future guests can enjoy the additional items to assist in their vacation.
We are hopeful to return again in the near future! We appreciated all of your kindness and flexibility.
Enjoy the day, Tom and I hope your family is doing well these days! My best always, Darla M.

Just thought I'd send a quick email to let you know we arrived safe and sound on Friday evening. Everything at Chatty's Dream is, as ever, great!!!! It's great to be 'home' again!!! Been to Epcot today and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and were back in time for some pool fun before tea! This is the life!

I hope this finds you and Kathy both safe and well after the hurricane went through your part of the country. We have been meaning to write and thank you for the villa but getting back into the swing of things after such an amazing vacation has been a bit difficult. The weather here is quite a bit different from Florida - it's almost depressing! We came home and almost instantly all of us have had colds, passed from one to the other. But other, than that, life is going on, but we can all agree when I say, we miss Florida.
Thank you so much!! We had a wonderful vacation! Your place was everything we had expected, hoped for and more. We were so impressed with the cleanliness and how well appointed it was when we arrived. It really was like being in a hotel without the hassle of a front desk and noisy neighbours. We kept saying over and over again how pleased we were with our choice to stay in a villa versus a hotel or Disney resort. We spent many fun-filled evenings in the pool and hot-tub. The pool heat was a wonderful addition as the hurricane dropped the temperatures significantly. We were glad to have it. Cole slept very well in the crib - again, many thanks for it as well. The laundry was a life-saver to me - as you know, having three boys the laundry never seems to end. What a great convenience having it was. I really could go on and on about all the things were appreciated about Chatty's Dream. My parents also wanted me to express their thanks and appreciation to you. They enjoyed their accommodations and were very comfortable as were all of us. They are now sold on renting a home the next time they travel to Florida too.

Hi Tom! Thanks so much for processing the security refund. What a beautiful home you have and we did enjoy our -too short-stay there. It rained the entire time, however, we still managed to swim and hot tub in the rain. As a matter of fact, it was POURING on Thursday while we were in the hot tub!!! We hope to come to Orlando again someday and if we do, we would love to stay there again if you are still renting at the time. We were able to cook a marvelous dinner there and loved every aspect of it. The landscaping was beautiful. We took many pictures of it all if you are interested in having any sent to you electronically. Thanks again and have a wonderful spring!

Beth & Dan L. (Illinois). We just wanted to tell you just how much your home meant to us during our stay. It was fantastic. I have stayed in many different homes, while vacationing, and found yours to be the most elegant yet homey. Open living area, makes it extremely easy for young kids. Yet the bedrooms make it private for all parties involved. The game room was a lifesaver, when it rained and the kids couldn't swim. I would, and already have, recommend this home to vacationers that are heading down your way, Florida. Definately a 5 star, and will stay again. Thank you, again. Beth L.

Hi Tom and Kathy,

Sorry it has taken us so long to get in touch, since we got back it has been a blur of thank you cards, finding homes for all our gifts and trying to find furniture to furnish our new home! But we are slowly getting there and are looking forward to a happy new life together :)
We wish to extend a huge thank you to you both for making our stay at Chattydream such a pleasure, the house is beautiful and was just perfect for us to relax and enjoy everything Florida has to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed using the pool and the BBQ, we had many delicious dinners (hence why we are now on diets!) and the bed was just perfect to crash into after a long day at the Disney Parks, so comfy! We have returned refreshed and with a great deal of memories that will last a lifetime and for that we thank you.

We also wish to say a big thank you for the unexpected gift of sparkling wine from yourselves, your neighbour Donna popped over one night to drop it off and it was such a lovely gesture. We enjoyed it with a romantic home cooked meal :)

Thank you again for making our stay so wonderful, we hope that this is not the only time we will stay at Chattydream and will certainly be passing on recommendations to our friends and family. Best Wishes -Craig & Rachel S. Owners note- we just thought a little bubble was in order since they had flown so far to celebrate their wedding vows and their future life together.

It was absolutely beautiful, everything we could have hoped for and more! The pool was wonderful on those hot days we were there and the spa was a welcome treat after our days at the parks and on the golf course! The house was spotless when we arrived and we enjoyed every moment of our vacation. The cranes came to visit us almost every day we were there.The kids loved the pool as well as the games room. I would recommend Chatty's Dream to anyone planning a Florida vacation. Close to all amenities - just a quick drive down the road for groceries, and very centrally located for our trips to Bush Gardens and the Universal Studios park.

My beautiful bride and I spent our honeymoon at Chattysdream and greatly enjoyed out time! The house is in a beautiful gated community and has great security features on the house which made us feel very safe and able to enjoy our time. The pool is a wonderful place to relax and is private. The house is very nice with compfy furniture and a very nice kitchen. We enjoyed the game room as well. The location of Chattysdream is super! It is very close to Wal-Mart, nail salons, and of course Disney and other shopping. Also, the beach is only a short drive! I would highly recommend Chattysdream for a honeymoon or vacation!

Since placing a deposit late last year I have had the pleasure of e-mailing Tom several times and each time he made my question/request a top priority. He responded and was very pleasant to deal with. We enjoyed the pool, after long days at Universal and Busch Gardens Tampa, as well as the comfortable beds!!

As we prepare for our departure tomorrow, we want to thank you for our comfortable stay at Chattysdream. This is our fourth year here and every time we are very comfortable in your home which moves us to return.

The comforts of home and more. From the comfy beds to the spa....The new air hockey table is awesome. We had many fun game nights.

Thanks again for all the special touches.

We also would like to thank the management company (shout out to Debbie) for their quick response in our behalf!

That being said we were wondering (as we see April filling up fast) if we reserved April 22, 2016 to May 2, 2016. If we were able to do that and nothing is reserved (if the calendar is updated) when would you need a deposit by etc?

Thanks again!!! We had an awesome time and much needed relaxation ....

You can really tell the property is loved and not just for rentals. Had a wonderful busy stay at chattysdream. Pictures don't do the property justice. It is lovely and spacious with 4 very good size bedrooms. Pool is perfect after all the long days in the parks and kids alo loved the pool and air hockey tables. Also nice being gated as gives a real sense of security and in a good location with disney only 20 minutes max and universal about 40. Definitely can't recommend high enough and we would most certainly stay again.

Hi Tom :We had a wonderful vacation and as usual your villa was perfect as always everything was just as we hoped. We had perfect weather and enjoyed spending time around your lovely pool. Thank you again for your golf course recommendation and for being such a wonderful host.
We have raved about your villa to many people from our island and I hope it has resulted in some business for you.
May God bless and hope you have a wonderful summer.

Tom, Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at your home in Clermont, Florida last week. We had a great time and the home was perfect. Thanks for the clear directions and info you sent me ahead of time. The home was clean and comfortable. We plan to stay there again when back in the area. Thanks again. Gavin B.

Also, we left some additional grocery supplies (non-perishable items) that we didn't use up and didn't want it to go to waste. Thanks again and we hope to stay here again in the future. Happy New Year!

We had a wonderful time in your house. Everyone felt very warm and homey in the Villa, and kids enjoyed swimming at all times. We will definitely choose your villa if we were back to Orlando in the future. Happy new year. Wish you and your family all the best.

We left chattysdream about an hour ago. When we arrived to the outside trash container was half full, besides that we had a wonderful stay thanks if any concerns please get back with me thank you.
Owners Note: Lake County picks up trash/recycling barrels one day a week on Thursday. Depending on changeover days, there can be trash in the very large outside barrels. Note to guest: Glad you had a great vacation. Refunding your security deposit back on your CC today. Have a safe journey-cheers Tom

Good Evening. We are back home in NJ now. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in your beautiful home. After exhausting days at the park, it was wonderful to return to a quiet, spacious home. I do have one question- I am anticipating receiving the full amount of our security deposit. Since our credit card number has recently changed, I am wondering how I can receive the security deposit back.
It seems that Bank’s are forever issuing new cards due to
security breeches, so the card we paid with is no longer valid. I looked on listing site but I didn't see any topics that
fit this issue. Thank you for your help!
Owner Note: Since security deposit’s go back on the SAME cc the easiest and best solution in this case, since was a US rental, was to mail the $200 refund check. Check that one off-cheers Tom.

Hi Tom, just wanted to say thanks again for everything during our stay at Chatty's during Hurricane Matthew in October, you really know how to take care of your guests. Thanks for working with us to change our time from next March to October.
Owners Note: Glad we could help during that weather change and glad the worst of the hurricane stayed further east. Kathy and I want to thank you and your husband for the wonderful beautiful Keurig Coffee Maker that you bought for the kitchen. We get such amazing guest, year after year, at Chattysdream. Have a great year.

Cheers-Tom and Kathy

Good evening Mr Sawyer. I trust that you are doing well.
As mentioned before, my family and I totally enjoyed our stay at your home. Everything was perfect. We will be having our church conference again in two years up there and are trying to begin planning as early as possible. We would like to vacation at your home again and definitely stay longer this time. I definitely feel extremely comfortable especially since I've had first hand experience of the unit already. The dates we are looking at are July 23rd to August 22nd 2018. I would like to begin down payments and monthly payments as I did before, to avoid the huge lump-some closer to the time.
I would like for you to send me a pricing and then we can set up a payment plan from there. Thanks a lot! Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi Tom, Thank you for getting back to me so quickly and we really appreciate the personal touch. We can see why so many people return to Chattysdream.The payment plan looks absolutely fine, we would love to book for next summer please. I'll be paying by AmEx.
The upgrades to the villa sound great, can't wait to get out there now! Only 15 months away. Haven't finished booking this year's summer vacation, but next year is well underway! Thanks,
