Florida Villa by the Lake

  • 2016 November


    We had a fantastic time at this amazing villa, well furnished with ample amenities.

    The new pool is really nice with views over the lake, we saw an eagle soaring above the lake and over the pool deck.

    Very well stocked kitchen if you wish to cook, lovely bedrooms, games room for both the kids and adults alike, washer and dryer very useful and is conveniently placed close to shops and parks.

    We would highly recommend staying at this location.

    We have just returned from a fabulous two weeks stays in Florida Villa by the Lake, having selected the villa after recommendation from friends. It was a excellent choice for a family of 8, with lots of space, lovely view and heated pool.

    The location is great for all the parks and a Walmart just around the corner for supplies.

    Wendy and Steve the owners were in regular contact straight from booking, and it was great to have a contact nearby in case of any problems. The welcome pack provided gave all the necessary info to get us started, with instructions for the oven, washer and dryer (so lovely not to come home with a case full of dirty clothes) and suggestions on where to eat.

    We will definitely return.

    What a wonderful villa - clean, modern and spacious. The highlight of course has to be the pool and that view every day. It meant we wanted to relax more and stress less about trying to fit everything in (parks etc.).

    Wendy and Steve have been wonderful, so responsive to questions and even offering info we hadn’t yet thought of. Would love to come back one day.

    Thank you

    Lovely villa - fantastic pool. Wonderful wildlife - Jim caught 7 fish.

    Went to Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg which was absolutely fantastic. Only took us 1 hour 40 minutes, well worth it. Superb guide gave us so much info.

    Also the Orlando Art Gallery is well worth a visit. Weather was hot, only one day of rain.

    Thanks, this felt more homely due to the extra touches.

    Very nice place, surely we will visit again. Thanks Wagri family

    As soon as we arrived we all had a look around and our children were beside themselves with excitement at the pool. The rooms were lovely, our little girls chose the Micky room and loved the Disney touches! Our big loved having a big bed to himself! Up at 4.40 am we did convince them to wait till 7am to test the pool!!!! The pool is a lovely size for a family such as ours, it was clean, equipped and a lovely environment to eat breakfast at whilst watching out for birds (we wanted to spot an alligator but didn't!!)

    We used the juicer to make fresh orange juice which the children thought was fabulous. We used the cooler everyday and filled it with frozen water ready for when we got back to the car after a hard day at Disney!

    The view from the villa is stunning. We thought it was perfectly located for all parks and for shopping, it was quiet and yet close to all amenities.

    The rooms are all tastefully decorated, there are plenty of towels although with an easy to use washer and dried I kept on top of the washing easily.

    I can't think of any negatives at all - the only one for us is that we were so busy we barely used the villa: in fact on our last day we realised we had barely been in the pool so cancelled our dinner reservation to chill out by the pool instead. It's safe to say we are now Disney addicts, we will definitely go back... Once we have recovered from this adventure!

    Thank you Steve and Wendy! Love the Gough family!

    Great villa, spacious, relaxing, great to come home to after a busy day. Adam (3 1/2) loved the pool and would spend all day in it.

    Would love to come back one day.

    Absolutely fantastic villa - everything you could need is here.

    Wendy and Steve were so accommodating to my changing of dates. The pool is fantastic after a long day at the parks or on a rest day.

    Hope we can get back here real soon. Laura X

    Fab villa - just what we needed! Had a ball - will certainly be back, thanks Wendy and Steve

  • 2015 October


    Spent our final week in your lovely villa, it was very relaxing and plenty to see and do in area. Kids loved the pool as did we all from first thing in the morning until late evening, it was just perfect. Men even managed a little fishing. We loved the view. We would love to return in the future. Thank you Wendy and Steve.

    Straight from the start both Wendy & Steve were a delight to deal with, getting back to you with answers to any question right away. The villa is just lovely in a fab location with plenty restaurants, shops etc close by with an easy, quick drive to all parks. The view over looking the lake is stunning to wake up to and to relax by the pool. We can't wait to return & would highly recommend to all.

    Had a wonderful holiday - the villa was perfect and Bob was great and very helpful. Have some amazing memories. The local Perkins was great value, as was Applebee’s. We visited all the parks, swam with manatees, flew on the Orlando Eye and had an interaction with Beluga Whales at SeaWorld - just wonderful. Thank you Wendy and Steve.

    Villa is superb and in a great location close to many attractions. Steve and Wendy made the booking process really easy and provided all the info we needed ...... We will be back.

  • 2015 August


    Had a fantastic holiday, plenty of sunshine and evening rain. House was fantastic (very sad to leave). Had to contact Bob twice and both times he was very helpful and came round 15 mins after we called him. Ate at Ihop, Denny’s, Perkins, Golden Corral, all very good. Will definitely be back.

    A fantastic villa in an ideal location. Great for a ‘family’ holiday. We really enjoyed relaxing evenings on the pool deck, watching the sun set and the kids loved the pool. Communication from booking to arrival excellent. Thank you for allowing us to stay. We hope to be back and will certainly let friends know about your villa. Shady area on pool deck a bonus for those HOT sunny days.

    Perfect holiday location. Had a lovely relaxing holiday in the beautiful well equipped villa.

    Booked to go again in 2016 and cannot wait. Excellent location and so easy to get to everything! Would highly recommend.

    We are regular visitors to Florida and this is the best villa we have stayed in. The villa itself has all the comforts of home and more. Waking up every morning with a spectacular view of the lake takes a bit of beating! The location is a short drive from all the major attractions yet far enough away to be peaceful and relaxing too. From the first time I contacted Steve and Wendy they felt like old friends and were always quick to reply to any queries and offer advice. We certainly intend to be back!

    We recently stayed in Florida Villa by the Lake while in hiding to surprise someone. The owners Wendy and Steve were fabulous to book with, giving all the relevant information needed.

    Having met them on previous visits to Florida, we knew we were placing our booking into capable hands, we were not disappointed.

    The villa is well positioned for visiting the parks, shops and restaurants. it is well equipped with everything you could need to enjoy your stay. The view of the lake from the pool deck is lovely, a peaceful community that is well presented.

    The beds are so comfortable and beautifully presented.

    We would return if we needed to use someone elses villa again (we are owners on another community).

    Well done Wendy and Steve on your beautiful home and thank you for letting us stay.

    A fantastic stay in a villa that had everything we needed. Very relaxing home to come back to after hammering the theme parks. Many thanks.
