Stunning Villa - We Didn't Want To Leave

We have rented homes both in the UK and overseas for 20 years now. This one stands out for being simply the best. We booked a year before going and all comms with Julie were friendly and any queries answered very quickly. The key pick up and alarm code instructions were clear and easy. The house itself is HUGE! Upon arrival, we found it spotlessly clean and ready for us to unpack and settle straight in. The decor is tasteful and modern. The villa is in a quiet area overlooking a lake. We did spot the resident aligators a few times! Lots of birds to watch too. All in all, very restful and a lovely contrast to the hustle and bustle of the parks. The pool is a great size and the temperature was perfect. There wasn't a single thing that we needed during our stay that hadn't been anticipated by Julie and John. They have thought of everything! The only problem with staying here is that it will spoil you for anywhere else!!

Beautiful villa
This was a beautiful villa, very spacious and comfortable. A pleasure to go back to after a long day at the theme parks. My family loved the large pool & the jacuzzi, with a lovely lake view and you weren't overlooked. A bit out of the way, but worth it.

Excelente propiedad con todas las comodidades
La casa es aún mejor que lo que se ve en las fotos!!! Está en excelente estado de mantenimiento y con detalles de calidad, todo funciona a la perfección! Todos los ambientes son amplios y luminosos, pasamos unos días geniales en la casa. Las habitaciones son amplias y muy cómodas. Cómo así también los baños. La pileta es muy grande y climatizada para disfrutar todos los días luego de la vuelta del parque y relajarse un poco. La ubicación, si bien está a 30 minutos de los parques de Disney, está muy bien ya que el barrio es muy tranquilo y seguro. La atención de Julie y John es excelente, están atentos a todos los detalles y hacen que tu estadía sea muy relajada. Gracias y felicitaciones por su hermosa casa.

Beautiful Villa
We stayed at the villa with another family in Oct 2016 so we could 'do' the whole Disney and Universal Parks experience. Prior to our visit I contacted Julie (the owner) with questions about a potential grocery delivery on our arrival and she went out of her way to assist. We'd picked the villa due to size and location and we weren't disappointed. The villa is enormous, tastefully decorated with a large, clean pool and jacuzzi. There is a large BBQ outside too. The kids loved the pool and games room in the garage it was just a shame that we couldn't spend the full two weeks in the villa! The community is very quiet and you do feel safe there. Restaurants and a Walmart are close by which we could call at on our way to or from the parks. The drive was around 20/25mins depending on which parks we visited. I would definitely go back to this villa and would highly recommend it for its size, facilities, location and helpfulness of the owners. Thank you Julie and John

The Villa was a wonderful Christmas get away for our family with adult children and their dates. It was very spacious, the kitchen provided me with everything I needed to cook, the kids loved to escape to the games room, and we all absolutely loved the pool area. The peaceful atmosphere was welcomed after days of sightseeing and visiting the Disney Parks. Thank you so much for an amazing place to stay!!

Very spacious villa in a quiet and relaxing area. Good with employment such as pool, billiards, various games and good opportunities for socializing through various seating areas both indoors and outdoors. Pleasant and accommodating landlords who provide very good and clear information about everything you need to know

We first had the use of this wonderful property in 2011 ( see my comment made in November 2011). Since then we have now been fortunate enough to visit this villa every year ( 7 visits in total) and every year, the owners continue to invest and improve what was originally a very high standard property. Our family has just completed a 4 week holiday and yet again, upon arrival, we could see a further improvement in the quality of the facilities. If this was graded on the same scale as a hotel it would get a 5 star plus rating. We have already booked for 4 weeks in 2017 as this place just offers everything for your perfect holiday. If you are thinking of using this villa for your next visit to Florida, then my advice is to arrange your booking as early as possible because the good reports and popularity of the place means that dates get filled in very quickly. Thank you John and Julie for providing a house which is like a home you always dream of.

The house was amazing! Kids and i used the pool and hot tub nightly. The game room was a hit and where they would go after our long days. There was enough space for everyone to feel comfortable and something to do. Loved the stash of books in the upstairs coffee table. Deposit was returned on time. We would love to stay there again. Julie was great and helped me get everything taken care of.

We stayed here from 20 May to 3 June 2016; grandparents, parents and children. The villa was impressive, spacious, comfortable, well equipped, clean and we were all quite envious of its ownership. The owners were were very helpful and accommodating, providing clear information and travel directions. We all enjoyed the pool and pool side; the patio space in particular was a hit with the grandparents early in the morning before the grandchildren were up, just quietly reading and looking out over the lake. The games room was a bonus, a big hit with the grandchildren who spent most of their "villa time" competing against the adults. It is close enough to the parks and various outlets so as not to waste travelling time to and from the numerous attractions but far enough away to be able to relax away from the bustle. I would gladly recommend this accommodation to my relatives, friends and acquaintances. The villa helped make the holiday a success.

We booked the Luxury Spacious Disney Villa after reading all the positive reviews on line and we weren't disappointed. Our 'boys' have grown up since our last trip to Orlando (they were 17, 20 and 22 this time round!) and the accommodation was perfect for 5 adults. Very well thought out spaces: an area on the first floor for them to tuck themselves away and listen to music or play games and a games room which kept everyone entertained. We only had one minor issue (with the waste disposal unit) which was promptly dealt with. Would definitely book again.

We stayed in this house from the 19th of January to the 27th of January 2016. We loved the house! It was even better than the pictures, everything was high standard and the house has a beautiful view of a lake. There was even a little baby alligator in the lake, the kids loved it! Every room was tastefully decorated, and had generous space. The game room was a big hit with the kids, and there was also cable TV. We recommend this house highly!

I cannot recommend this villa highly enough. It is furnished and equipped to a very high standard with a fantastic outdoor heated pool and Jacuzzi. It is within easy driving distance to some of the parks and International Drive but far enough away from the hustle and bustle to give you some much needed downtime after a long days at the parks. The owner was very accommodating when our plans changed and we wanted to stay an extra night. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to book this villa again on our next holiday in Florida.

Fabulous villa, owners have thought of everything, from hair straighteners to a luggage scale, where else would you get that? Perfect location, not too far away from the sights and parks of Orlando but also peaceful when you need it. Saw the resident alligator a couple of times as well. This is a real home from home, we've stayed at quite a few villas over the years but this one definitely is the best of the best. Thanks to Julie & John and we'll Be booking soon for next year.

We looked at a lot of houses before booking this. Until you actually arrive, you don't know if you have made the right decision. We certainly did. The house is beautiful, in a lovely quiet location which is welcome after the buzz of the theme parks. The owners were a pleasure to deal with, even sending us an email during the holiday to check we had everything we needed, which we did (wifi and phonecalls included in the rental cost). We will certainly be booking again.

First visit to Florida.

We had a really great time in our 3 weeks there; in fact it was our best family holiday ever. When we arrived, the first walk around the villa was greeted with 'oh my god it's amazing!'

The things we liked about the villa were:

Great size and space

In really good condition

Great pool and outdoor area with all day sun – great sunrise and sunset and great views when there were storms! Great BBQ

Great location on a lake with varied wildlife and not too close to neighbours

Very good instructions and advice given before visit – really helped with it being our first visit.

Games room – was used every day by the kids. And a Playstation for our older son

Pretty much everything in the villa you'd need for a visit

Good air con

Great having 3 bathrooms

Great having nearly all meals outside

Great fridge with ice maker

Not too far from all major attractions and conveniences

Thanks

Just a quick email to say we are in the villa and delighted with everything. Your directions were great, no problems with the alarms etc.We ve been coming to Florida for over 20 years and would definitely say that your villa is by far the best we've been to. The kids love their rooms and the games room will be a hit on the wet days.

You can read our first thoughts on this villa from our November 2011 comments.

We also visited in 2012 but did not leave a report because even though the owners had improved the villa again, a lot of glowing reports would make it more difficult to book as it becomes more popular! (Being Selfish!)

Well, we have just had another 4 weeks recently (2013) and felt we just had to give a review as it would be unfair on John and Julie (The Owners) and to Russ and Pam (The Management Team) not to praise them for the way the villa has been cared for and indeed improved upon every year! Their hard work and dedication to make sure our holiday was smooth and as comfortable as possible needs the recommendation it deserves.

So to John, Julie, Russ and Pam, many thanks for another wonderful holiday and look forward to returning in 2014 which we have already booked with you.

We had an excellent holiday in John and Julie's really nice villa. Previous comments say it all and we were truly impressed. Crescent Lakes Reserve is close enough to the dozens of restaurants along the 192. You do have to drive to and from them but you will get total peace and quiet. We had absolutely NO NOISE of any kind from neighbours and I suspect it would be like that all year GREAT!

We noticed the reserves Security Guys every single day (they wave to you) which gives a good reassurance that they are deterring any would be trouble. I would doubt if they ever get any!

Make sure that you have a good look in the various drawers for books and books and books! OMG! Once we worked out how to use the 5:1 Cinema system I have to say it was superb especially as I have never experienced it before. The house was spotless and so was the pool area. So important. And loads of Pool Towels.

Out and about try eating at Applebees on the 192. We had the best meals and probably the least price over our 2 weeks stay. We went 3 times. Found Publix the easiest store to buy food at and then get out sharpish again. Walmart maybe cheaper but takes hours to shop in.

Try Wild Willy's Airboats at St Cloud. Ask for Sharon and negotiate a good deal. Go to the parks early say by 10ish then escape mid afternoon and come back to the villa for a swim and a chill out.

Julie especially is a star at communicating with you and thats so important when laying out such a load of hard earned holiday money.

Sincere Thank you from

We have visited Florida many times but this villa has been by far the best we have stayed in. It is spacious, clean and filled with everything you could possibly need to make your visit special - from a large pool, pleasant views to plenty to entertain the children if you are having a 'day at home.' We would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone else looking to spend their holiday in a comfortable and high spec home.

The villa was amazing! Luxuriously appointed, immaculately maintained with a feeling of being home. Close enough to stores, golf courses and theme parks, yet far enough to relax away from the hustle and bustle. 4 bedrooms: each with a television (grandson sure enjoyed that), a lounge upstairs with a television, books to read, amazing view, lots of space. Grandkids loved the pool, the pond out back and the games room.

We are already booked to be back next year.

Thanks Julie and John and a heartfelt thanks to Russell and Pamela for their warmth, their advice, information.

We have been visiting Florida every year since 1992 and rented various villas. This year with additional family members joining us we looked for a larger place and just can not believe how lucky we were to find this place on the website. Spaciousdisneyvilla should really be called Luxuryspaciousdisneyvilla!. The owners and the management company take great pride in the quality of everything available and this is immediately apparent as soon as you walk in.

The location is truly wonderful for getting to the parks or just relaxing in the lovely surroundings offered.

Everything that is described or shown on the website is very accurate but does not do it justice as to what a high standard quality home it is.

Thank John and Julie for allowing us to share your home for the wonderful 6 weeks holiday we have just had and now we are already looking forward to the 7 weeks we have booked next year (2012)

We have been visiting Florida for 9 years now and the last three have been spent at this villa. Set in a quiet residential area it offers a spacious retreat from the parks and allows you to have a day off; enjoying the pool and watching the wildlife on the lake.

The villa is immaculately maintained and the owners are constantly looking to make improvements; the pool was relined in 2010 and this year new carpets have been put down throughout.

We did not know the owners prior to booking the villa, I was attracted to the comment that all of the bedding had been replaced in the villa!

There are no surprises or should I say shocks waiting for you when you arrive and that is why we have just booked again for next year.

A fantastic place and an ideal base to retreat to after a busy day at the Florida parks. The villa had everything you could ask for and more in terms of home comforts. It was so good, we enjoyed several 'days off' from the parks and had all we needed at the villa with a lovely swimming pool, games room, large screen TV and wireless internet. The air conditioning was perfect to retreat to when it became too hot and the ice machine in the fridge was perfect for refreshing cool drinks. Everything was exceptionally clean and tidy when we arrived and 'spacious' is a perfect description. We honestly could not have asked for more and the maintenance and management people were unobtrusive and extremely helpful with anything asked of them.

Next time we return to Florida, Spacious Disney Villa will be our first choice if available.

We had a fabulous time. Your villa was gorgeous, and well supplied. The lake view was peacefully quiet and the location was perfect. We sure would have liked to relax more, it seems we always had so many things to go do and see. For February, the weather was delightfully warm. It was in the mid 80's everyday! I've never stayed in a villa before, we've always stayed in hotels. Never again. We loved the convenience of having our own place, pool and privacy .

We'd recommend your villa to many of our friends and family if they should choose to visit Orlando Disney!
Thanks for sharing your home. We definitely will return in the future.

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful villa. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks there. Everything was clean and well looked after and we had everything that we needed. The pool was fantastic and had a lovely view over the lake with plenty of ducks, birds etc. The boys enjoyed the games room and got to play on the PS2 occasionally. The neighbourhood was very peaceful.

The parks, shops and restaurants were not too far away and your instructions were spot on.

At the end of our holiday we did not want to return to the UK! We would certainly consider staying in your villa again.

Thanks for everything.

This villa redefines the word luxurious, and provided a fabulous base for exploring Central Florida. After a busy day exploring the parks or other attractions it was exhilarating to swim in the lovely pool, then challenge each other in the well-equipped Games Room. The owner's care for us and our comfort, before and during our vacation was exemplary. We highly recommend this to any family."

The theme parks, shops etc are only a short drive away and there is plenty of restaurants to choose from. I especially benefitted from the swimming pool and we all loved the games room. Now we are home, we can only think back to the holiday with fond memories'.
