“Amazing Villa!!”

Reviewed 12 Jan 2016

We stayed at this property for 3 weeks. This home is just as described, the pool area and games room were thoughly enjoyed by all of us. There is plenty of room throughout the villa and ideal for a large group. We were very lucky with the weather and spent a lot of time outside in and around the pool, which was never cold. The setting is lovely, right on the lake, we watched some amazing sunsets. There is a large Walmart just a few minutes drive away, so didn't need to travel far for groceries, we frequented The local Dennys for breakfast, where the food and service were good, and enjoyed a nice meal at the Outback restaurant located in Winter Haven about 20 mins drive from the villa. Posner Park, located a short drive away, has a mix of outlets, restaurants and cinema. We can reccommend CiCi's pizza, cooked fresh and great value. Located on the US27 at Lake Hamilton is Capt Fred's Airboat Nature Tours, not only did we have a great airboat ride, but we actually got to hold baby gator's. For any keen golfers the Southern Dunes course, a few minutes drive from the villa, is a very good course, as is Celebration, but play was a little slow and Falcons Fire Golf Club located just off the 192 was an excellent course. The Florida Mall, Premium Outlets and Theme Parks were all easy to reach via the I4

5 star isn't enough stars for this beautiful luxury Villa. If I could I would give at least 100 stars!!! Driving up to the villa it was already noticeable that this was the best villa in the neighborhood. Once inside my friends and I were in complete awe by how beautiful and huge the villa was. We also loved how the home had a great view of the Lake as well. The owner and the management was very quick to responding to our questions, and made our stay that more relaxing. This villa is overall wonderful.

*** Daytona 500 ***

We stayed at this Villa in February for our annual trip to the Daytona 500.

The drive was not bad at all when you are talking and having a good time. But I am sure you are reading to hear about the house.

Let me tell you this, the pictures do not do this place justice. Yes pictures are nice to look at but let me tell you by first hand the place is way above what we expected.

Beautiful inside and the upper deck over looking the lake and pool was a big hang out for us. TV's where like every where you looked inside and out. The master Bedrooms where awesome and the super kings where awesome. I do not think I hit the middle of the bed the whole weekend.

The reservations person Melissa O'Grady was more than you could imagine to deal with. Always nice and very fast to respond to any questions.

The property Manager Robin was just a call away even though we never had to because the place was in top notch condition. But she did check on us to make sure everything was good.

I am telling you this if you are planning a trip to the Orlando area and you want a place to kick back and relax and never worry about bumping into the family like a hotel room or smaller house than this is the place for you.

Pool was a great thing to relax in and spa was just a button away to get it ready to relax after a long day.

I promise you and again promise you there is no way you can go wrong with this house and I hope to be in this house again and again.

*** Where Do I Begin? ***

The Games Room is the "pad" everyone wants at home! It immediately sparks celebration and fun. Apart from all the games there is additional drinks fridges which meant 3 things.

1: Speedy access to drinks when basking in the Florida sun by the pool.
2: You were not wearing out the stairs to the kitchen.
3: The main fridge in the kitchen was not bulging at its hinges with strategically balanced items.

The "infinity pool", upgraded to such by the lake location was a measure of freedom with only the wildlife to share it.

The manicured lawns encompassing the villa create your own little Robinson Crusoe plot with peace, calm and tranquillity.

The fishing pier a few metres across the lake means the kids/partner are a whistle and a wave away so you can multi task by observing their catch whilst sunbathing and reading.

The villa promotes itself by its vast size and outstanding location. Everything is so big and spacious, the garden, the pool, rooms, beds, TVs, closets, showers, seats... it is endless. I felt like Alice and this was my temporary Wonderland.

Fort de Soto, Myakka River State Park, Cocoa and Daytona Beach are an alternative to hustle bustle Disney, easily accessible from Calabay Parc.

If you need any reassurance, contact the owner. All communication is favourably welcomed and he is prompt to address any queries/suggestions.

*** Fantastic Location ***

It was a pleasure staying at your villa

The location is fantastic and we spent a lot of time by the pool.

It was a great experience and we wouldn't hesitate to consider staying there on our future trips to Central Florida.

*** Better Than The Pictures ***

The place was great... very private, very spacious, very clean.

It was even better than the pictures.

We enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back.

*** 5 Star ***

At first while booking this house since this was my first 'Home-Away' booking I was a little uneasy because the owner lives in the UK, and I was worried about if problems arise who would help us.

Since the first message I sent the owner he was great and emailed me back promptly.

We were two families with kids ranging from 18 and the youngest being 6, and all of them enjoyed it very much.

There are so many great things to highlight about the house, but I will just list a few. The pool is wonderful especially at night with lights, and even better with pool heating. What is not really evident from the pictures is that this is a 3 story home so if you have two families everybody has some privacy.

Another thing that was great is that every bedroom has a television. Also, the balcony on the second floor overlooking the pool is a great place to eat breakfast, and also has a great view of the lake behind the home.

The owner of the home owns the two lots next door, which makes the home especially private.

This home is in a great gated neighbourhood with many things close by, and I would highly recommend it.

*** Live Like Royalty! Great Vacation Home Property! ***

My wife and I and a few colleagues were schedule to attend a week-long pharmacy conference at Disney World Swan. Convention rates were expensive, so we decided to look for alternatives within driving distance. Imagine my surprise that for much less money, we would be able to stay in this mansion of a property!

I had some reservations about booking this property originally because the owner is in London (this is his vacation home in the US). I ended up making payment via credit card, so I could chargeback in the case of fraud. Now that our stay is over, let me assure anyone reading this that Mo, the owner, is 100% trustworthy, and I would not hesitate to make future reservations via check and avoid the extra credit card fees. Additionally, Mo is very helpful in answering all my questions and concerns.

The property is immaculate, with every small detail clean and well-maintained. There seems to be a number of "Calabay Parc" properties available, but it was clear to us the first time we arrived that this property is the cream of the crop - it's the only one with extra space on the sides so you don't have to worry about neighbour noise and it's also one of only a few that has the spa/pool adjacent to the lake so you have a beautiful view while lounging in the pool.

Speaking of the pool, it's amazing! There are lighting and water effects that you can select to switch on that make you feel that you have your own mini water park. Whether it was after the end of a long day of workshops, or after an eventful day at the various theme parks, it was great to look forward to taking a dip in the warm spa at the end of the day.

All the photos are accurate, and really speak for themselves; from the game room to the multiple master bedrooms, this is living in luxury. There is a Super Walmart nearby (less than a mile away), so we saved quite a bit of money by cooking our own breakfast daily. While there are many fast food choices nearby, there's really a lack of many sit-down dining options nearby except Cracker Barrel. Still, since we were either at our conference or at a theme park for the majority of days, this was not a problem -- we just made sure we stopped for dinner before heading home.

It was a lovely stay and we didn't want to leave. I almost don't want to write this review because it might make this property too popular and we may find it booked the next time we want to come back!

Thanks for everything!

*** About The House ***

I do not know where to begin. Everything about the house was perfect!

We have stayed in some other houses near the area but yours one was the only one that made us say "We can't wait to come again!"

The pool was crystal clear and more than twice the size compared to other houses and the gorgeous lake view just made it better.

The game room was not in the garage invaded by bugs like the other homes but it was a great size, clean room on the pool level.

You thought of almost everything, from pool toys to kitchen utensils, to even light switch and remote labels.

We felt very comfortable and even better.

Thank you very much for all the comfort you provided.

*** Wonderful House ***

The house was wonderful, the pool was a gem and the layout was really nice.

We loved the location and the privacy of the home as well.

We appreciated the updated televisions and the modern kitchen.

The games room was the favourite (and the pool) of my children.

We had a wonderful time and truly enjoyed staying at your home.

We thank you very much for opening your home and would love to rent it again when we are in Florida.

*** WOW!!! ***

This place is not only super huge, luxurious and a brilliant location it also has the biggest and best pool on the community and bet across most communities.

So in a bit more detail, all three master suites are excellent, big rooms, big beds, big walk in cupboards to hide the suitcases and big bathrooms.

The 2 double bedrooms easily sleep 5.

Pool - excellent - best I've seen.

Location - brilliant location in terms of Disney, Sea world, shopping malls (all within approximately 20-25 minutes).

However even better is that on a self catering holiday you are 5 minutss away from a giant Walmart and incase of an emergency, the hospital is approximately 5 minutes away.

It's a great place and we'll certainly be returning for sure.

No way you'll find a better, bigger villa.

*** Detroit Tigers - Spring Training Games ***

I just returned from a week at Calabay Parc At Tower Lake in Haines City.

The house was very well set up for large groups.

Travelling with 3 couples we loved the 3 in suite Masters and they provided us all with a great place to relax every night.

We enjoyed the pool and spa every morning and night.

We were in Haines City to go to Spring Training Games for the Detroit Tigers.

Haines City was 30 minutes from all the ballparks we attended.

Mo and the Service Company at Calabay Parc At Tower Lake were very quick to answer all questions we had.

I highly recommend this home to anyone travelling to the Haines City area.

Hope you have a great year renting your house, we really enjoyed staying there.

We very much enjoyed our stay.

The villa was just as wonderful as the pictures displayed on-line, beautiful!

The pool was warm and the scenery was most relaxing.

The beds were comfortable.

We also enjoyed many evenings on the second level deck overlooking the lake.

We would love to visit again sometime. This was one of our favorite vacations.

We really appreciated your prompt responses and attention to detail.

Thank you for checking in after our stay.

Thank you for allowing us to stay at your lovely villa.

I have also told all my friends about it.

*** This Villa Has The WOW Factor! ***

We had a fantastic time in Florida, and the villa really made it extra special. There were eight of us including 5 adults and the villa provided more than enough space. The best features of this villa was definitely the massive games room in the basement and larger than average south facing pool / spa which gets the sun most of the day. There are some really great touches as well like the pool water feature and large flat screen TVs in every room. The view across the lake at sunset is also something spectacular.

Calabay Parc itself is a safe gated community only 2 minutes drive from Walmart and 3 minutes from one of the best steakhouses I have been to (Mannys). It is also well within reach of all the Disney attractions which are 25-35 minutes away via the I-4.

The owner, Mo, was brilliant giving us lots of information about both the villa and Florida in advance of our stay and was also pleased to answer any questions when we were there. We paid our deposit by bank transfer and received it back within a couple of days of arriving back in the UK. I would have no hesitation recommending this villa even to the most fussy holidaymakers, it really is 7 Star as the photos suggest.

Thank you very much Mo, it was a holiday we will never forget and hopefully a holiday we will repeat again soon.

*** Better Than The Pictures ***

The house and property were wonderful. I can't say if the huge pool was nicer or the great view of the lake. The house was spotless and I would highly recommend anyone to enjoy a stay here as much as we did.

One huge advantage also there are NO neighbors anywhere near you.

We will be there next year as there is no reason to look at any other listings anymore.

Thanks Again Mo.

*** Incredible Vacation ***

My family and I had an incredible vacation in Florida while staying in your villa.

The villa itself was truly amazing, and exceeded our expectations.

We felt like royalty, my children loved the pool area and game room. My wife and I loved the location and privacy of the villa.

The view of the lake was so calming and seemed to wash away any feelings of stress. It was so convenient to have shopping so close and it was easy to get to our favourite parks and beaches with Interstate 4 so near the villa.

My family and I thank you so very much for allowing us to vacation at your one of a kind paradise.

Lastly, I must mention how much of a pleasure it was to do business with you Mo, you are forthcoming and honest and I felt very comfortable renting from you.

Thank you again.

*** Beautiful Home ***

Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful home! We had a great time!

The house was beautiful, the pool was perfect, and the view was wonderful. (There were lots of toys for the pool - very thankful for that).

We had no major problems other than the washing machine stopped working, but the owner promptly replaced the fault machine with a new washing machine and dryer, so we were able to do laundry.

I do have a few recommendations...

"Dora's Pizza is awesome! You MUST take a ride on Wild Willy's Airboat Tours! For an exciting day, contact Captain Mike at Dreamcatcher Excursions - he took us out snorkelling, tubing, and shelling. He had fresh fruit and drinks for us on the boat - Loved it! And there's LOTS of fish in the pond behind the house. :)"

Thanks again, we felt quite comfortable and happy with the home!

*** Fantastic Villa!! Already Booked For Next Year! ***

This was our second stay at this villa at Calabay Parc at Tower Lake and we loved it so much we have booked for next year as well. We could not imagine staying anywhere else in Florida. It truly is our home away from home!

Located on a gated community you immediately feel safe and secure and as you drive towards the villa itself you cannot fail to be impressed by the setting. Standing alone at the end of a cul de sac right on the lake. This villa provides so much space and privacy hard to find anywhere else in the area.

With accommodation set across three levels, you enter the house on the middle floor where you have the kitchen, dining and living area a lovely, airy, bright and light space. Oh, and before I forget, there are flat screen TVs practically in every room! The kitchen includes all the equipment needed during your stay and there is a high chair if like us you are travelling with little ones. My husband reminisces about the fantastic view of the lake he enjoyed during breakfast each morning! Also on this floor you have one of the three master suites and the utility room with washer and dryer. We made great use of the washer and dryer, indispensable when travelling with a baby and toddler. Also provided is a travel cot in which our little one slept soundly during our two week stay. The bedrooms are beautifully furnished and our king sized bed was very comfortable.

On the upper floor there is another master suite and two twin rooms and a bathroom. On the ground floor you will find the third master suite and the dedicated games room with another flat screen TV and comfortable lounging area.

But the absolute highlight and I have deliberately saved the best till last is the pool! This is outstanding! It has to be one of the largest pools I have seen in a villa of this size and made a great holiday even better. Our little boy, just over two and a half years old, would have happily missed out on meeting Mickey and his friends to play in this pool every day! We opted to have the pool heat on and it was lovely and warm. There is an integral spa which is just bliss and the pool has water features and lights. The owner really has thought of everything.

In terms of location you are close enough to get to the parks in about 20 minutes and if you like shopping, the outlets are close by as well. A few minutes drive from the house is a huge Walmart where you can stock up on all your essentials. It is so convenient; we were in and out of there most days.

This really is a fantastic house in a superb location and we are looking forward to our stay next year!

Gorgeous Home

We had a wonderful time in your gorgeous home!

How exciting to drive up and see the house, pool, and lake were exactly like the pictures!

This home left nothing to be desired! From the 3 master suites, and 2 additional bedrooms all with TVs, to the large family room, and beautiful well equipped kitchen, with plenty of seating at the table and bar. Even a highchair for my 1 year old granddaughter!

We enjoyed the awesome game room on the lower level, the beautiful pool & spa, and the outside decks!

The upper deck was our favourite place to have our morning coffee, just gazing at that perfect view of the pool and lake.

We appreciated that this home was in a gated secure community. Also, that it was a close drive to grocery stores and restaurants, and less than 30 minutes to the Disney theme parks.

Last but not least, the owner Mo is simply wonderful! He really cares that you enjoy your stay.

We could not have picked a better place to spend our vacation, and hope to come back to this home again!

Amazing! Fantastic! Perfect!

Amazing! Fantastic! Perfect! Unforgettable are just a couple of ways to describe our family vacation.

I am recommending to everyone your villa.

We had an amazing time and loved each and every minute there. We didn't do much except just enjoy the sun and pool since we had such a lack of sun this summer.

We recently stayed at the tower lake villa this past September. My family and my brother in law's family 11 in total.

It's hard to describe because staying there was absolutely wonderful!!! The location of the house and the amenities there kept us from even going to a theme park! The kids must have swam for 10 hours a day. A pool that lights up at night with the waterfall and fountains and the hot tub was a wonderful way to enjoy the warm nights. The screen over the backyard kept the bugs from getting to us at all!

When the kids needed to get a water break there was endless games of pool and fooseball and of course air hockey.

For a little down time there were tv's in every room with cable or netflix set up.

The kitchen table and counter sat our whole family. We had the BBQ as well which was very handy. We went to the Golden Coral and TGIF for supper a couple nights but enjoyed our family time most of the week in the amazing Villa!!!

So many amenities around to shop at Walmart, Big Lots, Target, Ross are around the corner for shopping.

We spent one day at Clearwater beach on the Gulf of Mexico. White sand beach warm water that has a shallow beach for the young ones and you can rent umbrellas and cabana's at the beach so you don't have to bring any! Would highly recommend a day at the beach there!

What an unforgettable family Vacation! No neighbours on either side and backing onto the lake!!! This is definitely the place you want your family to spend a Vacation.

Don't hesitate to book this villa at Tower Lake you won't regret it!!!

Thank you.
