Can't ask for more

This was the best place we have stayed. The house was great, the owner was great and the area was so quiet. Two direct routes to Disney which helped. Can't say enough about our experience.

The house was great and the property was immaculate the house wasbetter than first described. Had an issue with washing machine and owner immediately call management company and they were very fast and efficient and replaced the washer same day. Can't wait to book my next family vacation there. I also am looking good to purchase home in same gated community. The house was literally 13 mimutes to front door of Disney.

We stayed in the house 8 days and we really enjoyed it. The house was very well equiped. We loved the childrens room, and the three bathrooms. The house was clean and nice, but the chairs in the kitchen need some reparation.

Amazing Family Vacation

March 28, 2015

I came to this house with another family (we had 7 total people) and it was amazing. More than enough space (we didn't even use one of the bedrooms), terrifically maintained grounds and pool. The kids LOVED the pool, I loved the safety (pool child gate and door alarms). Close to Orlando and all amenities. We loved the privacy and the relaxed atmosphere. Sue is amazingly easy to contact and made the whole holiday better. I have no hesitation in recommending this home to anyone. We're coming back for sure!

Winter Getaway

March 19, 2015

This was our first time staying in this home/community. It was a quiet neighbourhood, perfect for our needs. The house is well maintained and included everything we needed during the week. We had requested and paid for pool heat and were very pleased with the temperature of the pool. The conservation area behind the house was beautiful and tranquil. If you're looking for quiet and relaxation, this is a perfect spot.

the house looks small from outside but it is large and spacious inside. the bedrooms were all decorated great and all had plenty of space including dressers and closets. there were some board games and movies for the kids to play and watch in closet. The pool was a nice temp still at the end of Aug and thru mid Sept when we were there, no need to heat at that time. The pool company came to do the pool cleaning once a week and never had any problems with that. The management company was great, we had a little trouble figuring out how to open the key box but they were there in like 5 min to help us out. They also went out of their way and we had a package delivered to the office and they brought it to our door when it got delivered thru post office. The game room set up nicely in garage with washer and dryer, both oversized ones so you could wash a very large load so had to do it less often. We stayed with a family of 7 for a month and I went grocery shopping twice so the only problem was finding enough room to store the 2 wks of food in kitchen area. With that by moving some things(extra pots/pans) in the pantry to stack more I was able to put the food there, a few things on table and some snacks on kitchen counter I was able to fit enough stuff for our family for 2 wks there. Also, a normal size fridge/freezer space so had plenty of space in them too. I loved having our own space for the month long vacation we took, being able to cook breakfast and dinner there daily and making lunches to take with us to parks, also washing and drying so no need to pack as many clothes, and having space for 5 kids to spread out and a nice bedroom for husband and myself, plus the pool to jump in and relax at end of day or when we stayed at the home just relaxing. I would not hesitate to stay here again or highly recommend it to others.

Nice place

August 13, 2014

The house was very clean and just what we expected. The pool was nice after a long Florida day in the sun. The only thing I would criticize is for the cleaning/management to make sure the game room is free of dangerous tools (the sling blade) and perhaps locked away in a maintenance closet. Everything else was perfect! Thanks for a lovely stay! We will definitely keep this house in mind for future vacations. :)

It was my first time in Florida with my family. It was a great home, very spacious and clean. It was just like being home away from home. The kids really enjoyed the swimming pool and ping pong table. Easy to get to from parks and airport. I would rent again in a heart beat. Very quiet community and close to everything GREAT VACATION HOME!!!

First trip to Disney

May 28, 2014

Home was great, exactly as described. The size of the home was more than enough there were (7of us). Pool was clean and well lit in the night. The home was close to everything, disney, grocery stores and restaurants. We enjoyed the home and didn't want to leave. Only issue we had was with a toaster, it was broke. Renting this nice home, at an affordable price, made our first trip to Disney World the best! Will definitely plan to stay in the future.

Home away from home

May 5, 2014

This vacation home was just perfect for our family. There were 7 of us in total and there was plenty of room. The house was clean and there was all the amenities you could ask for. The kitchen was well stocked and the kids had a great time with the games in the garage. The pool was great and the neighbourhood was VERY nice and quiet. The property is close to grocery shopping, restaurants and a crud store so you could easily run out for anything that you need. We were close to all theme parks and shopping as well. We would definitely stay there again!

Beautiful home that was very clean and well kept in a very secure neighborhood. Plenty of shopping nearby and the location was central to Tampa and Daytona. We very much enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We stayed at this wonderful clean home for 11 days, while visiting most of the parks central florida has to offer. We were skeptical at first, and since this was our first time booking a house instead of a hotel we were nervous! It was perfect! We have three children ages 8,10 and 13 and they all enjoyed it, it was so spacious and of course the pool was a huge hit. I would have no hesitation recommending this house rental to anyone.

Mandie Webb Truro Heights, Nova Scotia, 2014

*************************************************** *****************
Loved the house! We were at the end of the road, so it was quiet - no homes across from us, and behind us was a pond with wildlife - sitting on the back porch watching the cranes come right up to the scereen. We were 8 folks for the first week - 3 of whom were children and it did not feel like we were on top of each other - full kitchen; spacious living room; the kids LOVED their rooms; ALL had TV's, so we set up the Wii in the kids' rooms so they could play in the front of the house, while we slept quiety in the back. I loved the oversized washer&dryer; kids loved the air hockey and ping pong; short of figuring out our dates, we plan on coming back!

​Made memories is exactly what we did, so much so we have already booked it for our next winter vacation. On arriving our first and lasting impression... "AWESOME!" The entire facility is in excellent condition and has everything you need and more for a great family vacation. Easy to find, no busy traffic frustrations, quiet gated community, close to Disney and the many other tourist attractions. Eat out or barbeque at the villa - your choice. Highly recommended!

​My family fully enjoyed our week at your home. It was beautifully set up and accommodating for all our needs. It felt like home as soon as we opened the door. The neighbourhood is peaceful and such a sight. Sue, I can't tell you enough how much I appreciated your help right from our first email. You were so helpful and such a nice person. It gave me great comfort booking with you for our first experience. The layout of the house is fantastic, giving it the open concept roomy feeling. The colors are calming. Everything the house has to offer is wonderful. This was our first big trip as a family and our four children were so happy, they loved their personal bedrooms and all the little details of the rooms. We will be talking about this for a very long time. I highly recommend your home, and will definitely be back again. Thank you for opening up your home to us.

​Perf ect March Break! We enjoyed the Villa – very spacious, clean and tastefully decorated – three flat screen TV’s - a bonus!!! We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the location of the property - while the gated community allowed for lovely quiet walks in the morning, we were minutes from Disney, shopping and golfing. We are definitely planning on returning to this beautiful villa to make more memories with our grandchildren. Thank you.​​â&e uro;‹â€‹â€‹& acirc;€‹â€‹â€& lsaquo;​​â ;€‹

The house is very large and accommodated us comfortably. Lots of room to relax. We felt secure in the gated community. The house was so very close to groceries, gas, drug stores and especially Disney!

We had a wonderful week at your Florida home! The gated community made us feel secure, it was quiet and simply relaxing, just what we wanted and needed. Your home is very spacious, comfy, and has all the amenities of home, plus a pool. We loved sitting poolside in the morning and late evening. Minutes away from shopping, Disney, and our favourite summer activity, golfing. We are looking forward to spending another week next Fall and hope to bring our granddaughter and family.
