“Perfection vacation”
Reviewed 17 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Very close to all Disney parks, major shops, not too far from idrive. Very clean,spacious and homely. It's a ideal location for a Disney vacation but also relaxing days by the pool. Been here twice now and would definately look to book again. Sandra can't do enough to help with your stay and for first timers her experience is worth its weight in gold.

Arriving at Arkvilla after a long delay at the airport was like a 'warm welcoming hug from a special friend' you can tell straight away that this is a loving home. So much thought has gone into the decor & style making sure you will have a wonderful stay here. The rooms are very spacious & very well equipped with everything you would need. The pool area is stunning, we spent many happy hours relaxing in the wonderful Florida sunshine. My boys loved the games room (peace for me too!! ;-) ) Sandra the owner is always happy to help straight away with any questions you may have. Arkvilla is perfectly situated for seeing all the parks & so peaceful to come home to at the end of a long hot day. I can & will, highly recommend Arkvilla to anyone.

“Great location, warm atmosphere”
Reviewed 13 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a fantastic 2 weeks here, and it was our first visit to this villa. It has everything in it that you need. The location for the theme parks and shopping is perfect, the I4 close by for access to Tampa and lots of restaurants for a variety of choice.
We will definitely return on our next Florida holiday

“Beautiful Villa”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

You just have to read the other reviews, every one gives this villa full marks, and I totally understand why. This was our 6th visit to Orlando, and without doubt this has been the best villa we have stayed in. From the moment we first entered the villa you could just feel comfort and cleanliness. It had everything you could ask for, ipod docks, , xbox, DVD player and movies, and a great selection of tv chanels, as well as a great games room. The whole villa was tastefully decorated, and the rooms spacious. There was 2 unsuite bedrooms and 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds in each. The pool area was lovely, with sun shine all day long. We said this year we would stay in the villa more, instead of going out every day, and it was lovely for us all to congregate and just chill by the pool with a few beers, and a couple of times I put the BBQ on. Even though there was 8 of us there, the place seemed spacious, but my favourite spot was the settee in the front room of the house, where you could get away from all the madness, and just keep up to date with whats going on in the world. This Villa is in Highgate Park on Highway 27 about a mile from Highway 192 towards Haines City, and its a gated community which also gives you peace of mind. dealing with the owner was a pleasure, and any queries where dealt with inside a couple of hours. I loved the nice wee touch of leaving my granddaughter a Disney passport cover. Its these simple things that makes us want to come back here, and we will. We go to Orlando every 2 years or so, and this villa will be our first port of call. The whole experience from first finding this villa, to booking it, to the payments, to deposit being returned promptly has been first class.

Ahh, thank you so much Garth and family, you really touched my heart with your review, I can honestly say we always feel so priviledged when people choose to stay in our home as there are so many villas in Orlando

First class service for first class guests, we're looking forward to your next stay

“FantasMIC!!”
Reviewed 3 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

people found this review helpful

Arkvilla is a very beautiful, well appointed villa located within a gated community, only a 12-15 minute drive to the iconic Archway at WDW. There are several grocery stores, supermarkets, pharmacies and restaurants very close by.

As soon as you walk through the front door you can see how much love, care, pride and time has been devoted by the owners (Sandra & Jai) into making this a home from home. All the furniture / furnishings have obviously been chosen with great care and are well looked after. The villa is very well equipped with lots of those 'little extras' you don't often find in rental homes (a couple that spring to mind are egg cups and sealable food containers). There are even towel hooks and hair-dryers in the bathrooms. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable, with plenty of good quality linens and towels etc.

The Games Room complete with Xbox, air hockey, pool table - to name but a few - is a fantastic feature. Sandra & Jai also provide a couple of bicycles for guests to use. If you have younger children you also have the use of a stroller, car seat, travel cot and high chair. If you fancy a day 'at home' there's also lots of DVD's, Xbox games and family board games to keep the family occupied.

The private (heated) swimming pool (with removable safety fence if you have young children) is a welcome way to relax after a day at the parks or as a 'down day' and several pool toys were available. There are also a couple of safety vests provided for those with youngsters learning to swim. The pool / decking / patio area is a very good size with plenty of comfortable chairs and loungers. Good quality pool towels are provided (another bonus as it saves you room in your luggage for all the souvenirs you will want to buy).

Sandra is very helpful & friendly, nothing is too much trouble and she answered all my questions / queries promptly. And believe me, I had quite a few! In fact I feel like I've made a new friend. We have stayed in many wonderful villas over the last 20 years and I can honestly say I wish I had found Arkvilla (and Sandra) sooner! Thank-you for sharing your fantasMIC home Sandra & Jai.

“A Wonderful Christmas trip”
Reviewed 16 February 2016 for a stay in December 2015

So we had a wonderful time spending Christmas at Ark villa. The community was all decked out for Christmas and a Christmas tree was waiting for us when we arrived at the villa. We stayed as a party of 9 and had plenty of space, the villa was huge. We loved the high standards everything was spotless and the villa had so many facilities it was literally everything we needed. The older kids loved the xbox and the pool and games room too they would of stayed in the villa the whole time if they could. The beds were very comfortable and bathrooms spacious. The pool area was large and the pool heating made it very comfortable to swim in December although we did have very warm weather for the most part. The villa owner was very pleasant and helpful and the management company attended to any issues promptly which was great. We will definitely be back :)
