Florida Villa by the Lake

  • 2018 July

    Dawn & Chris

    This is a fantastic place to stay. Amazing villa with everything you could wish for. Lovely and clean, spacious & a great location for Disney. The pool was excellent with views over the lake. We only wish we had more time to spend in it.

    Steve & Wendy were very helpful and thought of everything in the information we were given and made the whole renting of their villa very easy. The villa felt like a home not just a rental & we will definitely be booking with them in the future.

    Arrived home yesterday after 3 weeks at Florida villa by the lake, it was just perfect. From the moment I enquired about booking to the moment we checked out Steve and Wendy were so helpful and quick to return messages. The villa is amazing and has everything you could possibly need, they have thought of everything. The pool area and view across the lake is stunning, never had a view like it from a villa before.

    This was our 12th visit to Florida, it is my favourite place in the world and location wise this is the best villa we have ever stayed in. Thank you so much Wendy and Steve for letting us stay in your beautiful home. I’m hoping we can return soon xxxx

    Thank you for your hospitality and allowing us to enjoy your wonderful home. 10 days with a lake as our TV was the perfect R&R.

    Graham & family

    Villa had all the facilities to cater for the 8 of us that came out. The kids loved their rooms and the pool, while we adults enjoyed the games room in the occasional evening.

    Booking was smooth and contact with the owners was fast with good information exchange.

    A lovely home, and would recommend to anyone.

    An amazing villa, it really feels like home.

    The views from the pool are relaxing and outstanding. The villa was very clean and had everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The kids really enjoyed the pool. We will definitely be in touch to book again next year. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

    Scott & Gillian

    Just home after spending 2 weeks in the villa by the lake and it was amazing. The villa is very spacious, clean and well equipped and pool area was a big hit with our 2 kids from the minute we arrived to minute we left.

    The villas location is perfect for Disney, shopping and restaurants. Steve and Wendy are very friendly and made the whole process from the first query to the final payment very easy and I have no problems recommending the villa to friends and family.

    Hope to be back again soon.

    Sarah & Ian

    Set overlooking a lake in a great location for all the attractions, shopping and restaurants.

    Owners Steve and Wendy were very helpful and quick to reply to any queries and management were close by for any help required (especially when we locked ourselves out).

    There is everything in the villa that you will need for adults and children and super clean. I will definitely be booking again.

    Tanya & Mark

    We spent 2 weeks here from 20/6/17. I cannot fault the villa at all. The owners have thought of everything. Villa was amazing. Very spacious. Spotless clean. Tastefully decorated. I would highly recommend.

    Beautiful views of the lake from the pool area. It really was a home away from home. Having a washing machine and drier is a god send as we didn't have any laundry to wash on our return home.

    Wendy was on hand to answer all of my questions and concerns. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home.

    Donna & Phil

    Just returned from a 2 week stay at Florida Villa by the Lake and it was fabulous!

    The villa was spacious, clean, equipped with everything you would need and the pool was a massive hit with my 2 children.

    The location was superb, close to the Disney parks, shops, places to eat.

    Steve and Wendy were great to deal with also, kept in regular contact from booking and answered all my daft questions (as it was our first time in Florida). Didn't want to leave and hopefully be back soon. Highly recommend this villa!

    Wendy & Mike

    Celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary whilst here, were joined by our family for first two weeks (then had two weeks on our own to recover from theme park overload).

    Weather has been fantastic. Loved the villa especially the lake setting. Loved seeing the turtles in there!

    Would recommend kayaking at Shingle Creek (just past Walmart on the 192 near marker 15). Saw loads of turtles, birdlife and even an alligator!

    Best meal was at Ataj, an Indian restaurant (2901 Parkway Blvd off the 192 near Celebration). Would highly recommend if you like curries.

    Jane & Tony

    Perfect villa, perfect settings, perfect weather and sunsets.

    We have been on Eagle Pointe 7 times now in different villas. We did have a favourite but it was booked. But this is now our new favourite.

    We will be back with daughter and grandsons. Thank you Bob & Diane (property managers) for your help on two occasions.

    Margie & Ned

    Sunny and in the 80's. Beautiful weather.

    What a great location. We enjoyed the lake and much of its wildlife. Why would you want to stay in a motel when you can have this beautiful spacious home with your own private pool?

    Very nice accommodations and great location near all the parks and shopping! Did a lot of relaxing by the pool and shopping at Bealls. All set for my summer back home. Did I mention we did “some” shopping?

    Had a wonderful time. Boys played a lot of golf. Hope to return next year? Thanks again Wendy & Steve

  • 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.

  • 2016 October


    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.

    Great villa. Fantastic view over the lake

    You couldn’t ask for more

    Thank you

    Lisa & Rhiannon

    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

    Jim & Sue

    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

  • 2016 March


    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
