“Amazing Homely Villa!!”
Reviewed 22 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Where to start... So we arrived back from Florida 3 weeks ago we were going out their to get married so had already booked a large villa to stay with friends, then came across this one contacted Donna and decided to go out a week early to sort wedding things out before guests arrived. Donna was so helpful and got back to me straight away with any questions I had.
When we arrived at the Villa we were so pleased it was spacious, clean, child friendly, great location and had everything we needed. It was close to all Disney Parks, loads of shops and local restaurants within 5 mins. It really felt like home, we couldn't have been happier with this amazing Villa and all Donna's help along the way. Thank you Donna

“Amazing Villa to stay in”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We could not have wished for a better place to stay whilst we were in Florida. Close to all the Disney parks (10mins) and 40mins from the airport. The Villa was lovely and clean, fresh and modern, as was the pool, 6ft deep end and 3ft shallow end with steps leading in. The master bedroom was a really good size as was the on suite bathroom, with bath and shower. From the bedroom were patio doors leading out to the pool, as was another of the bedrooms. Everything in the Villa worked including the all round speaker system which was a nice touch. The area around the Villa was really quiet and relaxing, with a supermarket and restaurants just up the road (2min drive). We even had a text from the owner asking if we arrived safely and if we needed anything. Thank you.

“Basics not Luxury”
Reviewed 13 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The owner of this rental property lives in England, so Kissimmee property managers are the local caretakers. Appliances, shower, toilets, etc. all worked fine so we thankfully had no need to interact with these managers. Donna, the owner was very prompt and pleasant to deal with on-line. This property covers all the basics of a house stay, but to call it a "luxury villa" seems a real misnomer. This is a very standard mid-sized, older tract home.
The home has 3 smallish bedrooms and a large master bedroom with interior bath, also large. There is lots of space in the living room, dining area, kitchen/ family room. The amount of space would seem suitable for a large family gathering. The rest of our family was staying in a gated Formosa property on the other side of Formosa Blvd. This family proximity made an ideal location for us and also gave us the chance to view another property less than a mile away. That property might properly be called "a villa" by comparison to ours. It had 7 bedrooms, large air-conditioned game room, beautiful furnishings, lovely contemporary bed linens etc.
Our property appeared to have been built in the 70's (that's only a guess) with furnishings to match. The pictures on-line are real but looked more appealingly "beachy" and Floridian than they do in person. The popcorn ceilings, faded peach fabrics, white-washed wood furniture, thin towels, and dirty traffic pattern areas in the carpet, are the reality. The games in the garage area were pretty much unusable due to the extreme heat as that is not a finished or air conditioned room. The pool area is maintained weekly but has no plantings or walls to give it privacy from adjacent homes. We never saw any people in those homes so maybe they are rentals as well. The house was clean except for the white carpet which may have been cleaned, but has become permanently marked with years of use.
Other than being close to family, the other big plus to this property was that it was an easy 5 mile access to Animal Kingdom, the closest Disney park. Driving to all the parks from this area was easy--good roads, no tolls, and no time sitting in traffic. We certainly appreciated all that ease for our long park days. Lots of chain restaurants were within a couple miles as are groceries and gas. TP was the only paper product provided in the house.
There are many pluses to this rental that may work for many families. To be more realistic its name should be changed to Basic Affordable Convenience because those are its truthful descriptors.

Hi Kathy. Thanks for your review. We are very ptoud of our home and have spent a lot of money upgrading it. Unfortunately it may not be to your taste. Tho all our guests have thoroughly loved our home. With regards to the marks on the carpet I did send you an email with regards to this. As a previous guest had left marks on it. And although cleaned by our fantastic management company it could not all be removed in the time before you arrived of which I informed you. This has now all been professionally cleaned. We do all we can to supply all we can. All our linens and towels are brand new and replaced regularly. This is in fact a self catering holiday . We do hope you had a lovely holiday and enjoyed florida. Warmest regards Donna

I've not long returned from a 2 week stay at this fabulous villa, with my mum and a friend. The villa is everything you can ask for and more!!! It was professionally clean both inside and out. As there were only 3 of us it felt extremely spacious but it suited our needs and most certainly is not a complaint - it would be able to comfortably accommodate much larger families too. We spent a lot of time out on the pool deck - comfortable sun beds and lovely pool/hot tub made it difficult to pull yourself away - also as it was south facing you were guaranteed sun for most of the day. It is situated in a central location of Kissimmee with plenty of good restaurants / fast food / supermarkets etc to satisfy anyone's needs and tastes. Having spent a lot of time in Florida in past years I can honestly say that this villa has been the best choice of accommodation so far - I wouldn't hesitate in booking this again should I be fortunate enough to return to the States.
Lastly, Donna the owner was extremely nice and very easy to deal with. She kept in regular contact before, during and after our trip which was appreciated. She explained clearly all that we needed to know and provided reassurance that should we have had any further questions / queries that they would be answered quickly. Would recommend this villa to anyone travelling to Florida in the future. Thank you again!!

“Best time ever”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

What can we say about this villa that hasn't already been said. From the first time I contacted Donna through to us getting back from our visit, Donna has been quick to reply to all questions.

We were a little concerned about hiring a villa off someone on the internet. We needn't have worried as Donna made the whole process so easy.

The photos really don't do the villa justice, it's so big and nice. We could have gone for a smaller place with there being only 4 of us, but i'm so glad we didn't.

Having lived out of suitcases on previous holidays, it was nice to be able to put things away out of site. Everything you could possibly need is to hand.

The pool was a godsend, as the temp was in the 30's for our stay. Again the photos dont really show how big or deep it is.

I would highly recommend the villa and the owners to everyone, you wouldn't be dissapointed.

Thank you guys, the villa made the holiday.

“Lovely Villa in a grat location ;0)”
Reviewed 4 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

We have just come back from a great holiday staying here, everything was perfect but the two main reasons for the 5 stars are as follows;

1) The location! previously we had stayed on estates off Highway 27 which were great but staying here can cut up to 30 mins of some journeys and with small children and a tired mother in-law this was a real plus point.

2) The Owner! I am always worried about paying monies to people who I don't know however the owner (Donna) has been amazing, she's made sure we have had everything we need at all stages of the booking and answered questions at speed which really made us feel at ease with our booking, nothing has been too much trouble for her and we even got a pre arrival weather report ;0)

The Villa itself is everything you'd expect and has everything you need for a pleasant stay.

Thank you Donna and anyone looking for great place to base yourself in amongst the fun of Florida look no further ;0)

“Would definitely rent again - excellent home & Home/Manager people”
Reviewed 22 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Home was as advertised. Was Very Clean and as described. Owner keeps in touch and wants the renter to be pleased. Great location in a very nice community/rental home area and very close to Disney attractions and shopping/restaurant areas. Price for facilities VERY acceptable to all that are reasonable in expectations. Good for families or couples sharing. Great location for Orlando/Disney/Spring BB season.
