Welcome to Florida Star villa. We, Gill and Ed Danvers, the owners, know that choosing a rental villa can be a difficult decision, with so many available and wide ranging prices and locations. It can be difficult choosing your holiday home from an internet site. We know this because we have rented villas ourselves in the past.

Let us give you some details here, then if you have any specific questions, please do not hesitate to contact us without any obligation.

LOCATION:

Glenbrook resort, located within an easy 12 minute drive from Disney is also convenient for other parks. It is conveniently situated for a great selection of restaurants. Other major parks are only a short drive away. Whilst Florida Star offers everything for a great vacation, the resort offers complimentary communal pool, gym, tennis and sand volley ball along with a clubhouse.

THE VILLA:

As you walk through the front door (keys available in a lock box outside so no need to find a remote office to pick these up), you will be greeted by the formal lounge and dining area off the vaulted lobby overlooked by the first floor landing.. A place for the adults to relax. Leading off the lobby is the game room, a great hit for the kids (and many adults). We have a full size slate bed American pool table, Air Hockey and Foosball (bar football). There is also a pub table with tall chairs and CD player. The room is decorated with sporting pictures. Some of them you may recognize, others you may debate.

Walking through to the large open plan kitchen, nook (dining area) and family room. You will notice the light and airy feel, with the vaulted ceiling overlooked by the first floor landing and 2 large patio doors leading to the pool deck. The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern facilities. Seating at the breakfast table for 6 with an additional 3 at the breakfast bar. In the family area we have a 52 inch cable HDTV flat screen TV with Bose sound system and DVD. A selection of DVD's is provided others can be borrowed without charge from the clubhouse.

Leading off the family room is the first master king bedroom with four poster bed, LCD TV and DVD, en-suite bathroom with his and hers wash basins, corner bath and walk in shower. The bedroom also has a large walk in closet and patio doors leading to the pool deck.

Outside in the pool area we have an extended pool deck with lots of space. This is generously equipped with luxury furniture. Loungers, relaxers and table with seating for six. Enjoy the pool or relax in the spa. The pool is not overlooked by properties to the rear, adding to the privacy and solitude. On a clear night you may even get a view of the Disney fireworks from here.

Going upstairs you will find a further six bedrooms off the spacious landing, One King Master with en-suite, two Queen bedrooms and three twin bedrooms. In all sleeping for 14 in real beds.

We do find that many smaller parties enjoy the space and facilities Florida Star has to offer. On the landing overlooking the family room there is a computer with free high speed internet access, great for checking attractions, directions, checking in for your flight home to avoid queues at the airport (if your airline provides this facility) and even booking tickets.

POOL & SPA:

Outside in the pool area we have a good size pool with spa and an extended pool deck with lots of space. This is generously equipped with luxury furniture – loungers, relaxers and dining table and chairs. Enjoy the pool or relax in the spa. The pool is not overlooked by properties to the rear. The garden provides a beautiful backdrop adding to the privacy and solitude. On a clear night you may even get a view of the Disney fireworks from here.

The pool area is a lot of fun but care needs to be taken especially for the very young or elderly. All pools in Lake County must have a security fence. This can be removed if you wish.

We also have a combination fire safe for your use if you require this.

We know that you are on vacation, but should you need it, there is a well equipped laundry area leading off the kitchen with washer, drier and upgraded ironing facilities.

Please feel free to ask any questions about Florida Star without any obligation when considering a booking.

We have many satisfied guests who have recommended us to family and friends, after your stay we want you to feel comfortable in doing the same.

Beds: 2 King Beds, 2 Queen Beds, 6 Twin Beds, 1 Crib

“Perfect for our Family of 12!”

Reviewed 24 Feb 2017

This is a lovely vacation home with all the furnishings to make one feel completely at home! The home is tastefully decorated, with a well-supplied kitchen and an abundant supply of towels and linens! We had more than enough room for 5 adults and 7 children. With the beautifully landscaped pool area and game room, there was space to spread out and have peace for everyone! The owners are amazing, kind, informative and extremely responsive as well as their management company. They took care of any and all issues immediately! We were also able to ship our on-line orders ahead to the clubhouse, which was a real benefit to being able to travel light! Thank you for a lovely 2 weeks!!!

Owner's reply: Hi Gina, Many thanks for your review. It has been a pleasure working with you. So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Hope to 'see' you again. Kind regards, Gill and Ed

“Amazing place”

Reviewed 29 Jan 2017

We loved staying here! It was in a great neighborhood. It was in great shape, everything was outstanding. Highly recommend this place. Loved all being together. All kids wanted to leave Disney just to go back and hang out at house and swim in the pool. We will definitely look into staying in this house when going back and will let anyone going know about this place. I wish we were still there. They were great to deal with too.

Owner's reply: Hi Jennifer, Many thanks for taking the time to post your review. So pleased you enjoyed your trip and your stay at Florida Star. We look forward to being able to help again when you plan your next trip. Kind regards, Gill and Ed

“Superb !!”

Reviewed 11 Jan 2017

I have just returned from our family vacation at Florida Star last December. What a great experience!. I definitely recommend it !!. The house looked like just what we saw in the pictures. Impeccably clean and organized. We had TV's on every room and even a play room for the kids.(and adults). A nice and clean poll with a hot Jacuzzi. Our only task was an immediate trip to Walmart (1 mile away) to stock up on food and beer. lots of beer.... I also liked the fact the villa is extremely quiet and still close to major department stores. During the leasing process, I was in direct contact with Ed and Gil Danvers , the owner, witch made a big difference. Planing to return Dec 2017 !!!!!!

Owner's reply: Hi Reggie, Many thanks for taking the time to post your review. We look forward to being in touch with you again when you plan your next visit. Kind regards, Gill and Ed

“Perfect in every way”

Reviewed 28 Nov 2016

This rental was perfect in every way. It was clean, fully furnished, and very spacious. We had 4 adults and 8 kids under the age of 12 and all of the kids had their own beds. The owners were great to work with and I would highly recommend this rental to anyone visiting central Florida!

Owner's reply: Hi Eric, So pleased you enjoyed your vacation and your stay at Florida Star. We hope to see you again if planning a future trip to central Florida. Best, Gill and Ed

“Fabulous Accommodations”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2015

The house handled our group of 10 perfectly. Had a few minor issues that were quickly resolved by the Owner and Management. Easy access by auto to all attractions. Would definitely recommend to anyone requiring accommodations for a larger group. Great value for the price. Special thanks to the Owner (Joey Lee) and his maintenance manager Ken.

“Great Family Vacation”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2015

Very nice house and actually excellent value. Very well appointed and very clean. I have no problem recommending this villa to others. One downfall is parking if you have multiple cars ... the HOA prohibits on street parking.

“Awesome”

I was afraid that the pictures that I reviewed were old. But oh no the house was as promised and more. Thanks

Owner Supplied Testimonials

"We had a wonderful time at the Florida Star. It was beyond our expectations!

Your decorating, amenities, and extras were all perfect! I could be heard to say every day that this is "another day in paradise" and at the end of the week that "this was one of the all time greatest weeks of my life".
We played pool almost every night and cooked on the grill everyday. The kids loved the pool and really improved their swimming skills - ate a ton, and slept like rocks. Who could ask for more?"

P&J, Indiana, USA

"All of us have had a absolutely fantastic holiday making it all the better for staying in your gorgeous villa.
The villa exceeded all expectations and we all agree that when we next visit Florida that we would all love to stay there again. I shall have no hesitation in recommending Florida Star to all our family and friends! It was 5 star accomodation in paradise!

Thank you both for a wonderful holiday."

S&R, Staffordshire UK

"The villa was wonderful. It is rare to find somewhere to stay that is not only beautifully furnished and equipped, but so new and clean. Clearly no expense has been spared in fitting the villa out.

Everyone had a wonderful time, I hope to return as soon as possible!"

SR, UK

"Thank you again for sharing your home with us! What a wonderful feeling it was to return to the warm and welcoming retreat of Florida Star after the fast-paced and adventure-filled days in Orlando!

I also have to tell you how convenient you made things by having the computer available, as well as the PS2! It was so great to be able to get precise directions or reserve tickets on-line, as well as the occasional email check for work. The house is decorated so perfectly....what a great treat.

Again thank you so very much...we all had a spectacular time!"

K&M C, Newfoundland

"We really enjoyed the home. It was very comfortable, and the layout was fantastic. We enjoyed the pool quite a bit as well. The PC and DSL wireless was a nice perk as well. Played golf at two of the courses your on line site offered.

Hopefully will rent from you again in the future".

"Just a note to say thanks for the wonderful home you rented to us for our stay on Orlando. What a fun but exhausting trip!!

Your home is beautiful and very accomodating! Our kids loved the pool and the game room was a big hit! Will recommend your home to family and friends who plan trips to Orlando in the future".

TH, Tennessee

"The vacation was spectacular!! The house was spectacular!! We cannot say enough. We will highly recommend your home to all our friends and relatives and in the future, hopefully if we can afford it, we would like to go and stay in the Florida Star home again. It was fabulous.

Each son had his own room and TV and that in itself was great. The internet was great!! We have dial up here so it is very very slow. it was so nice just go on whenever we wanted. And it was so fast.

The furnishings were beautiful. The house was EXTREMELY clean. That was really a plus. The pool and spa were beautiful too. That is where we spent most of our time".

K & S P, Michigan

On behalf of the 3 families including 6 children all under the age of 7, I would like to thanks you very much for the opportunity to stay in the Florida Star Villa. With such ample space, so close to so many amenities, and barely 10 minutes to Disney parks, we could not have selected a better location. Your home is so well laid out with so
much space for common activities, including the huge and very well equipped games room and the large pool and spa that there were a couple of times during our 10 day stay that the kids only wanted to stay and play in the pool. The bedrooms (all 7) were more than adequate as were the multiple bathrooms and the living areas. The
kitchen and pantry was well equipped and a great central location for all to gather and the pool area became our outdoor room to play in.

The property was very well presented and should we ever travel your way again we will surely make contact to arrange a booking.

(Feel free to post my comments as people should be aware that your home can comfortably handle large numbers comfortably)

We have just returned from our lovely vacation in your beautiful villa.

We wanted to let you know that we found the villa to be a perfect place for our family of 11. Everyone was extremely happy with the accommodations. We had everything we needed to make our stay a fabulous family time. We were close to everything we wanted to visit and had access to every convenience for shopping and dining.

We visited all the Disney parks, dined with chef Mickey and visited legoland.

One daughter even got engaged on this trip!

Thank you.
