“Wonderful house, now even better!”
Reviewed 7 June 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This is the 2nd year in a row that we've rented this house. This was a perfect house for an extended stay in Florida, and incremental improvements have made it even better this year. For a detailed general review of the home, please see my previous review from May/June 2016.

The owners, Alfio and Sarah, are exceptional to work with. They take a genuine interest in guests having a good stay at their home. I had several email communications with them before and during my trip and they are always very quick to respond and resolve issues despite time-zone differences.

What is new for 2017? The timer for the spa jets, which we couldn't actually find last year, has been moved from the side of the house to the master bathroom to make it much easier to turn on.

The shrill alarms when the patio sliding doors are open have been silenced, making it easier to enjoy the fresh Florida air through the screen doors.

some of the myriad light switches have been labelled, making it easier to learn what controls what.

Landscaping and outside paint have also been improved, but that's probably of less interest to most guests :)

We didn't have any major problems this year. The house was very well cleaned when we arrived (we actually arrived a bit early and got to spend some time chatting with a couple of the wonderful cleaning crew who were doing a last-minute refresher of the house). The pool maintenance folks didn't always show up on schedule, but a quick call to the management company typically resolved that.

All in all, I really can't say enough great things about this house and it's owners. I will definitely be looking forward to staying again the future. Highly recommended!

What a wonderful review. We have worked hard to put together the kind of home we would like to stay, in if we were guests and it's very rewarding to hear that we're getting it right. We know there is more we can do and receiving feedback like this is so motivating. Thank you for the fantastic review and for being the kind of guests home owners wish for. We look forward to having you with us again with open arms.

“Wonderful Villa, Great Owner!”
Reviewed 8 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Great villa, it has all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay. The master bedroom is awesome, with a huge bed, lovely bathroom and direct access to the pool. Fantastic pool and pool deck area, with plenty of sun all day, shade when you need it and plenty of loungers and dining furniture. It's in a great location, with lots of shops and restaurants nearby. The villa is in a lovely peaceful community, away from the bustle (and traffic!) of the parks, but still only short drive to Disney.

The owner is amazing - always responded to my queries quickly and was really helpful. I wish I could have stayed longer, but will definitely return!

“Awesome”
Reviewed 4 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Booked this via TripAdvisor the response rate from the owner was very quick and all questions answered. The apartment was a delight to stay in very clean and all facilities advertised were in good working order. I have recommended this to my friends who are planning a trip.

“Stunning Villa”
Reviewed 6 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Me and my partner stayed here for just over two weeks in November. The villa its self is quite easy to find with a good Satnav, and is only about 40 mins away from the airport - which is handy!

When we arrived the porch light was left on for us, so it made it easy to find being so late at night. The keys were conveniently in the safe box on the wall, armed with the code we were in in seconds!

I have to say the villa is exactly as pictured, and spotless! Modern, clean, not a thing out of place. Lovely little surprise there was a bottle of champagne waiting for us on the table. Really thoughtful thank you Alfio and Sarah!

The villa is larger than expected the rooms almost all have on suite bathrooms, so definitely no fighting over the bathroom mirror. We stayed only in the master bedroom, with their only being two of us. Which had a huge super comfy bed which was dressed with loads of throw cushions (very nice touch). The room was really light and airy with a built in wardrobe, and loads of coat hangers, plus 3 chest of draws. The room had a beautiful large on suite with freestanding shower, two sinks and huge bath. I can’t stress how big the bath was, I’m now looking into getting one at home!

The kitchen is well kitted out with everything you need, even to cook for a large family! The most we made was a cup of coffee, but I was really impressed.

The Wi-Fi is really fast and easy to connect too, and reached the whole of the villa with no problems with signal, including outside were the pool is. The TV is a really good size in the living room and we chilled out a fair bit and just watched a movie some nights after visiting the parks. You won’t struggle for room on the couch either, just like most things in America that's huge too! I did however struggle to stay awake as it’s so comfy!

The area its self is quiet, and the neighbourhood is well kept. It’s about 20-25 mins to the Disney parks, maybe 30 mins to universal. 10 mins drive to the local Publix, and about the same to some really good restaurants. The owners have put together a really helpful manual including places to visit and eat so you won’t be stuck.

Communication with the owners (Alfio and Sarah) was excellent! Really quick to respond and couldn't do enough to help.

The only downside to an amazing holiday in this superb villa was that we did have some major problems with the pool and spa. We paid for 2 weeks of pool heating, and unfortunately we were only able to successfully get into a warm pool with functioning filtering system about 3 times. The pool pump gave up a few days in, and the spa kept tripping out. The management company did respond quickly and changed the pump but the problems persisted. I txt Alfio a few times and he seemed to get a better response out of the management company who seemed to just give up coming out to fix the pool after a few days. It was unfortunate as we really enjoyed our holiday at Belmont Villa, and the problems we experienced with the pool perhaps was just down to bad luck, and I’m sure is fully fixed by now for future guests.

If we make it back to Orlando we wont hesitate to stay here again! Thank you for having us.

“Fun in the Sun”
Reviewed 3 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The home was very easy to find using GPS. We were able to let ourselves in the home very easily using the keys in the lockbox. The rules were clearly stated in the book provided. The home was well maintained to an extent. There were some flaws but I did not go in expecting a perfect home. We did have a little mix-up concerning the pool heat. We did pay for a couple days yet the temperature was not up to par. We were reimbursed the money that was paid with ease. It was a little disappointing only because we chose this home because of the pool and hot tub. Sue and her partner were very easy to communicate with and they did address our concerns in a very timely manner. There were lots of extras in the home. The kids were able to enjoy the basketball hoops and pool table etc... I would have like to find in the pantry maybe some salt and pepper sugar packets, coffee filters, just little things that you wouldn't want to buy a whole pack of just to stay there for a few days. The home did have lots of beach towels, rain ponchos for use at the amusement parks. Some of the furniture and doors need minimal repair.the showers needed to be cleaned a little better as there were random hairs around. Overall I would highly recommend this home to any family looking to vacation.

“Amazing villa, Cant wait to come back :)”
Reviewed 2 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Arrived on friday evening to a lovely clean spacious villa. in a very quiet community within a close proximity to supermarkets and themeparks.
All the rooms are furnished to a high standard with modern finishings. use of AC is very easy with a digital dial that you turn to set the temperature - no hassle.
Pool area is beautiful with many sun loungers to choose from and 2 tables. pool is cleaned weekly but you can ring the management company to schedule a day so you know when it will be done. lovely spa and powerful jets, lovely to come back to after a day at the parks to relax.
Kitchen and dinning area is well equipped with everything you would need including a huge fridge freezer.
Overall had an amazing holiday at this villa and wouldnt hesitate to book again, would highly recommend this villa to all.
