“PERFECT”
Reviewed 28 October 2016 for a stay in October 2015

Ideally situated approx 30-45mins from all the major parks, we first used this villa with my in-laws in 2014 and booked it again for the next year the day we came back. The villa is only a mile from Walmart and all the usual fast food places. It is very spacious and comfortable, and is one of the few with a jacuzzi in the corner of the pool. We couldn't make it this year but will be back a 3rd time next year. It has all the comforts of home plus pool and air hockey in the garage. WE LOVE IT THERE

“Fantastic villa”
Reviewed 27 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Stayed at this fantastic villa in September with my wife and four children and also the mothe-in-law. It as a perfect place for us all to stay . The villa is awesome .. big , clean , in a great location. The pool is fantastic, the bedrooms are brilliantly set out . Disney is only 20 minutes at most away and very easy to get to .. universal studios and international drive about 40 mins away and once again very easy to get too. Dave and Julie who own the villa are both extremely helpful and I can't recommend southern serenity highly enough .

“The best Orlando Villa yet ! ”
Reviewed 17 September 2016 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at the Southern Serenity for 3 weeks in August & September 2015
This was our 6th visit to Florida, but the first in this villa, it was by far the very best Florida villa we had ever stayed in and we immediately felt very spoilt

The villa is extremely spacious, and very tastefully decorated.
It has a huge pool, jacuzzi and patio area, non of which is over looked by the neighbours

It is perfectly situated, to the south west of Orlando and about a 20 min drive to Disneyworld.
It has excellent connections to the Interstate 4, from here you can visit the Gulf coast and Atlantic coast beaches if you need a break from the Theme Parks

Within a 5 min drive from the villa, you will find Supermarkets, Pharmacy, Restaurants, Gas stations and shops so literally everything is at hand !

I recommend a visit to Lake Luisa state park ( 10min drive ) if you want to see some amazing wildlife in a natural environment !

The owners gave us all the information we needed while we were there, and as soon as we decide to visit Florida again, we will definitely use this villa once more, it really had everything we could possibly ask for !

Best Wishes

“Fun in the sun with Southern Serenity, this is as good as it gets.”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We have rented this same villa 3 times. It has been recently renovated and very tastefully. The villa offers all the amenities you could possibly want. The owners are very helpful and respectable. We in return were respectable of their property. The pool area is south facing, which is just what you want when you are in Florida. The resort area is very clean and quiet. Shopping is just minutes away. We cannot wait to return for our 2017 vacation. You will not go wrong renting this excellent villa. For a fun and worry free vacation the place to be is SOUTHERN SERENITY!!!!!!!!!!!

“Great base for Disney”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We got back from a 3 week holiday here the other month and I have to say it was great. I am glad we chose it over a hotel, because it offered all the amenities and space of home. It is ideally situated for all of the parks. There is a really nice supermarket 100 meters down the road, plus a raft of other restaurants and other amenities that are all easy to get to.

There is a good size pool, BBQ, washing / drying machine WiFi, TV's etc etc. I would defiantly go back although I might do a little less Disney and a little more exploring next time though.
