    The McCoy family, Merseyside, England

    What can I say? I am absolutely blown away with how beautiful your Florida home is.

    The photos & YouTube video don’t do your home the justice of how beautiful it is when you walk thru the door after a long journey.

    We sold our house here in 2017 and have rented since. I have yet to find a house that impressed me 100%. There was always something that I thought “oh I will tolerate that”. But your house has ticked every box for me and I will definitely be a repeat guest next time we visit.

    Here is my Top 15 things that impress me.

    1. Comfy Beds
    2. Lovely Bed Linen
    3. Electric Kettle
    4. British Tea Spoons
    5. Netflix *
    6. Ceiling Fans in all bedrooms
    7. Wooden floors (no skanky carpets) *
    8. H.E. Washer (so many rentals have old crap washers)
    9. Pool was warm on arrival
    10. Egg cups (I know how difficult it is to find them here)
    11. English Tea pot
    12. Previous guest leftover basket in bathroom
    13. Complimentary DW tablet & washing machine tablets.
    14. Curtains on Windows (not just blinds)
    15. Tiled pool deck/patio

    The Wadden family, Cape Breton, Canada

    Our second time staying here.

    Really enjoy the best equipped house “kitchen” we have rented in our years of vacationing.

    Our grand children came for a week and our daughter and son in law came for a week. We had a wonderful vacation - already booked for some time next year!!!

    We did a lot of relaxing and only west to Busch Gardens and took the train to Winter Park. We did this last year but this year we took the boat ride around the lake to see all the beautiful homes - amazing.

    Many thanks

    The O'Connaire family, Edinburgh, Scotland and Galway, Ireland

    Our second visit (four years later) has been fantastic. We’ve again enjoyed the beautiful villa and pool.

    Our daughters are a little older so this time we enjoyed Universal Studios, SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, Volcano Bay and Aquatica.

    We also returned to kayak at Shingle Creek and saw turtles, osprey, eagles and enjoyed the tranquility. Swimming with dolphins at Discovery Cove was a highlight.

    We had an amazing stay in your villa by the lake. We felt very at home here, the kids loved the games room and the pool in particular.

    The location was a great base for our trips to various parks, attractions and evenings out, we have made some incredible memories as a result.

    Thank you

    The Wadden family, Nova Scotia, Canada

    Lovely villa, well equipped and very clean, thoroughly enjoyed our month with visits from family. Weather was exceptional.

    An unquestionable five star villa. We have stayed at many villas in the Kissimmee area but this has been the best, clean, well stocked, great location, lovely views, etc.

    All previous positive comments are bang on. All dealings with Steve and Wendy were professional and very quick to respond.

    Thank you Steve & Wendy, great to deal with - back next year.

    The Cooper family, Isle of Wight, England

    Really enjoyed our stay. Thanks for sorting internet. Pool is so cool and sunset amazing. Villa wanted for nothing.

    Just stayed at this villa for the 2nd time. Got nothing but praise for this villa, great location for places to go, Disney so close and other places to visit. Not to mention the view over the lake. The sunsets are stunning too.

    You will want for nothing, it is provided for you. The pool is fabulous just dipping in and out. I could not recommend this villa enough and the owners are nothing but helpful too.

    Thank you so much The Coopers

    The Lavery & Cassidy families, County Armagh, Northern Ireland

    Highly recommend - great outdoor pool area, spacious rooms, felt like you were at home, very clean, awesome game room, great location and close to just about anything for things to do and restaurants.

    We had a great family experience and can't wait to re-book!

    You definitely won't be disappointed with this beautiful villa along with the stunning views. It really is picture perfect.

    Thank you Wendy & Steve from the Lavery/Cassidy families.

    The Jones family, Cardiff, Wales

    Absolutely perfect, lovely villa and pool. Would love to come back.

    Thank you Steve and Wendy! We had such a fantastic and magical holiday.

    Staying at the villa by the lake really took away any unnecessary stresses. Everything was perfect. The villa is clean, spacious and has everything you could possibly need.

    The pool area was beautiful. Steve and Wendy are full of useful and helpful tips and advice that really helped. Steve and Wendy provided a helpful document about driving in Florida, not knowing I was a new driver and nervous about driving abroad.

    The villa is close to everything and such an easy drive everywhere! We really hope to return in the future!

    This is our second stay in this lovely villa. Excellent in every way.

    We stayed with our 3 grand children who loved the pool after we returned from the parks. We loved the view of the sunrise and sunset.

    Owners Wendy and Steve have good communication and made us most welcome in their villa. 5 star ⭐️ villa and hopefully we will be returning soon. Thank you Wendy and Steve

    The Hird & Owens families, Colchester, England

    This is our fourth stay in this lovely villa. We all had a lovely holiday and it was a joy to bring our 19 month grandson for his first Disney experience.

    The weather has been exceptionally hot and humid, so the pool has been well used. Villa and amenities have been fantastic.

    We will be back. Thank you Steve and Wendy x

    The Garrett family, County Down, Northern Ireland

    Spent 2 idyllic weeks at this lovely Villa. It has everything you could possibly need. Facilities were second to none. Steve and Wendy were always on hand if we needed them.

    Pool area was our favourite to sit and watch the local wildlife around the lake. So peaceful in the evening. Location to everything again brilliant.

    Would definitely book again.

    Thanks again xxx
