“Great Villa, great facilities and very good commun”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2016

The Villa has all the promised facilities and more. The villa is in very good state, everything is working, it's clean and in a quiet place by the lake. We were a family of four and enjoyed it very much. The owner, Pam, is very responsive and pleasant to deal with. When we plan the next stay in Orlando I will definitely go back there.

Beautiful home with 4 bedrooms and a nice pool. It took us about 10-15 mins to get to all Disney parks and about 25 minutes to Sea World and Universal.

“1st Class Accommodation, Location & Service”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2016

With Florida being a favourite holiday destination, getting the right accommodation has always been important to us & this villa was exactly what we were looking for. A quiet location, with an open outlook over the lake to watch the wildlife was ideal. After a day at the Parks, coming home to sit by the poolside and watch the sun go down was the perfect end to the day. The villa had everything we could ask for and with supermarkets, shops & restaurants all within a short drive and easy access to the freeways, the location was perfect. Many thanks to Pam & her House Management Team for their excellent help & support in making this a thoroughly enjoyable holiday.

“Great winter vacation”

My husband and I spent five wonderful weeks in this lovely home.Family and friends visited as well everyone loved the home as well as easy access to all the parks.We also enjoyed all the nearby shopping.One of our favorite places to relax was the backyard with heated pool .The pond and wooded area behind is very quiet and peaceful. The owners and managers were very helpful and always easy to reach.We will be returning next year .

“Simply perfect”

Reviewed 12 Dec 2015

It was simply perfect! We loved the house, which was very clean and smelled very well as we walked in on the first day. The music was also turned on, which made it very special. The managers were very helpful and kind and the house beautiful, confortable and with everything that we needed. We were all sad for not staying longer. We will certainly look for the house when we return to Orlando.

“Fantastic Villa”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2015

'Lakeside' was extremely comfortable, with everything that you could possibly need included in the inventory. The beds were wonderful! More importantly for us, the villa was in a perfect location on the edge of the countryside, which allowed us to get away from the bustle of Disney etc at the end of the day. However, it was still close enough to all of the attractions to make access to everywhere that we wanted to go very easy. We particularly enjoyed using the pool and looking over the lake at the varied wildlife that visited the area everyday; my husband went fishing everyday! We would love to go again!

“Decompress in Davenport”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2015

We stayed in this home for our family vacation to Disney World. The house was exactly as described. It was big, clean, beautifully decorated, and close to our destinations. We would definitely consider renting a property again for future vacations.


Reviewed 6 Jul 2015

Enjoyed the property immensely. It was everything the advertisement stated. The ammenities were excellent and it was one of the most relaxing vacations we've ever had. Even though we did not go to any attractions, they were all very close and easy to get to as well as places to eat.. The only negative was the pool filtration was on a timer, so we didn't swim as much at night as I would have liked to, otherwise no complaints. I would recommend this vacation to others and intend to reserve for next year, if at all possible.

“Perfect Vacation Home for a family or couple”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2014

Thank you so much, Gill and Gary, for offering your home as a rental. We tend to be on the side of picky when it comes to hotels or rentals and this one exceeded our expectations. We could not have been happier or more comfortable in your beautiful home. The décor was that of a model home while it was very cozy. We spent much of our time relaxing out by the pool, and then enjoyed movies from your collection at night to watch on your gi-normous television. The kitchen is fully equipped and we actually tried to discover the one item that was not in the kitchen so we could buy it and leave it as a donation......needless to say, we left nothing. We slept like babies each night. The kids swam daily and nightly. I talked with Gill several times prior to our trip, and again while we were there (she called to make sure everything was satisfactory) so we had no unanswered questions. We would certainly recommend your home to family and friends and would rent it again in the future. Thank you for the memorable family vacation!

“a true gem!!!”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2014

We stayed at this home for a family reunion. Pictures do NOT do justice to how beautiful the place is. As we walked in, there was welcoming music playing on the radio and it felt like home almost immediately. There was plenty of space for 2 families with kids. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and it was hard to get the kids out of the pool to go to amusement parks. Location is perfect if you plan to visit Disney, Legoland, Universal or Space Kennedy center. The home is also perfectly located such that drive to either the Atlantic coast or the Gulf coast are a little less than 1,5 hours, should you choose to go to a beach. This is a definite comeback!

Owner's reply: Thank you - I hope you are able to come back one day

The pictures did not do this rental home justice as it is truly more than what we expected. Thanks to all that contribute to this homes upkeep as our choice in renting Lakeside Villa was key to our fabulous vacation. Location, cleanliness, nice furnishings, and comforts of home - we couldn't have asked for more.

A wonderful villa with a lovely view over the lake. We really enjoyed it here and our favourite was the pool. The location, being only 10 minutes from the world famous parks, was brilliant.

RM, Maryland, USA

We spent 4 weeks in this marvellous home celebrating my retirement. We had guests from Canada, entertained other visitors, and truly made use of the home. Candlelit dinners in the dining room, BBQ's, bottles of wine, made use of the pool- day and night. It really was our home away from home. Very comfortable and the heated pool was a real joy.
