Unclean carpet, vents, pool, nasty house next door, tried to scam me out of my deposit. STAY AWAY!!!
This was a trip to Disney for our extended family, total of 6 adults (3 couples) and 3 young children. The villa was ideal for this group - plenty of room to spread out, each couple had their privacy and the pool offered a great chill-out area when we were having down-time. The location was good too - 15-20 mins from the main parks and 5 mins from the local restaurants and shops (all by car of course, perish the thought of Americans walking!).
Kitchen is very well-equipped and we used it extensively. Nice to have a dining table we could all fit round comfortably.
An added bonus for one of my son-in-laws and me was that the local golf course - Championsgate - is excellent.
Would happily stay again and recommend the villa.
Returned 3 weeks ago from a fortnight stay in this wonderful villa. Situated approx 40 minutes from Orlando Airport, it is in a fantastic location.
On arriving at The Abbey, there is a security gate and keypad, where you input a code for gates to open.
This is our review of the villa.
We had the choice of 5 bedrooms, 3 of which were en-suite. All rooms were a good size, with king beds in 3, double in 1 and twin in the last. The Master bedroom is on the ground floor and is en-suite with a separate large shower, corner bath and 2 large wash basins. The toilet has a separate door entrance.
The other bathrooms are upstairs.
Ground floor had a toilet and wash basin which we liked.
The Fully fitted large kitchen/diner area was great to prepare breakfast / lunch, although we never ate inside as there was a wonderful pool area out through the patio doors to sit and enjoy the sun rise and later the sun set , as well as making use of the comfortable sunbeds and chairs. This area leads to the pool and Jacuzzi, which was a good size and an ideal way to cool off from the hot sun. There is also a toilet and shower. The whole pool area is covered with fine netting to keep bugs etc out.
The lounge was spacious with television and DVD player and 3 double sofas which were so comfortable.
Upstairs there is a seating area which has a huge window giving views looking over the open area at the back of the villa.
The remaining 4 bedrooms are upstairs.
All linen and towels are supplied - There is a cupboard with fresh supplies as needed.
On the ground floor there is a utility area with a washing machine and dryer if required.
This was where the used towels and linen were to be left on the last day for the cleaner to take for washing.
The villa has wi-fi access and is air conditioned throughout.
Located 20 minutes drive from the Disney Parks and Universal Studios and an hours drive to Busch Gardens, and with a Supermarket and several Restaurants 5 minutes drive, this was ideally situated for our needs.
We enjoyed every moment of our stay and look forward to returning again in the future.

After my partner finally ovecoming her fear of the long flight I finally managed to convince her that it was worth the trip all the way from London to Orlando. We were fortunate enough to find this villa, conveniently close to the local supermarkets and restaurants allowing us to easily get anything we needed quickly (extra beer and ice cream mainly )
Every morning I could wake up whilst my girlfriend was still in bed, make a fresh pot of coffee and sit in the hot tub watching the lovely open space just from across the pool area, watching the hot air balloons flying off. Then at night, I could come back and was fortunately located close enough to the theme parks that I could watch the fireworks from the pool!
We will definitely be returning as soon as we get the opportunity. Hopefully we can come back and make even more great memories in such a beautiful, convenient location.
