About Nikki

When my husband and I, and our 2 children came down to Florida ourselves for the very first time in 2013, we fell in LOVE with Florida and all it has to offer!! Thus we decided it was a great opportunity to purchase this rental villa, and be able to offer other people like ourselves who dream of the same vacation of a lifetime!! We ourselves also use it regularly, thus it is always maintained to the highest of standards as we are checking on it, ensure our management team is keeping it up to our 5 STAR standards!

Nikki purchased this villa in 2013

Why Nikki chose Glenbrook Resort

After renting a different house ourselves, we loved the concept of the private house and pool after a long day in the parks vs a public hotel & pool with more screaming kids! The house we stayed in was a bit small, and much older than this one. It was quite a bit further to Disney than this one.

Thus we decided to start our house hunt! After searching through about 15 houses and 6 different communities.. Glenbrook came out on top every time!! Its a very well manicured community, with high standards, and an 'HOA', which means the neighbours also have to abide by the same rules and yard maintenance, so there is never a house that is badly run down, nor any safety issues, or the awful feeling of unwanted people lurking around! There is also a 24hr community camera surveillance system through out the streets, thus no need for the pesky gated entrances which can be a real pain when they wont open after a long day in the parks!! Another reason we picked this is a smaller community, and it has sidewalks for that morning stroll! The streets are also line with picturesque palm trees, which surprising enough... many other suburbs do not have!

We as the owners cant wait to hear the feedback from our upcoming guests as they experience their trip of a lifetime!! We have also taken our experience and tweaked this villa to have the things we felt could have been improved on in the house we staying in! You should feel right at home while in our villa, and we encourage you to RELAX... just as you should!

What makes this villa unique

What makes this specific house so unique, it is backing onto the beautiful lake in GlenBrook, along with the pool and deck being south facing allowing you to bask in the hot southern sun while the kids or others cool down in the pool!!

There are only a handful of houses on the lake in GlenBrook, and only a few others are as large as ours, we are the largest house in GlenBrook centered on the lake!

The villa was freshly painted with Farrow and Ball Paint, along with new bedding & linens, so not only will you enjoy the outside, but as well the inside. We have again repainted and refreshed many areas in the house as of February 2018, so it still feels like new! We have taken the opportunity to have some fun with this house, and have created theme rooms, take your pick from TOMMY BAHAMA, TOMMY HILFIGER, and SAFARI!? and of course for the children... MICKEY MOUSE! We are centrally located in Florida thus if you looking for the parks, we are just 15 minutes away, or if you want a day at the beach, its only 90 minutes to either coast, or perhaps you want to do universal, that's about 40minutes, or the newest thing we came across was ZIP LINING! Yes.. Ziplining! That's a bit further away about 2 hours, but so worth the drive!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our third time staying at "The Villa Esquire", and what else can I say but we expected nothing less. The property is magnificent in every way. If there is a downside to the property, it's that it's not big enough. We have told everyone how wonderful it is that every time we are scheduling time there we don't have enough accommodations to house all the people wanting to come. And our neighbors; that's right, they have become OUR NEIGHBORS are as excited to see us as we are to see them, so you have to always leave that time for us. Nikki you are the best!!!!!!

Fantastic Floridian Family Fun - Forever Memories

  • 5 of 5

This house is so fantastic it made it worth travelling for over 12 hours with two children, one of whom has a lot of special needs and disabilities. It was our family adventure and trip of a lifetime and it had to be right. The owner was brilliant with details and communication and answered all our questions personally and quickly before, during and after our trip. The location was spot on for all the parks and amenities that we needed, both Disney and Universal (even with the holiday traffic). The setting was beautiful and so lovely and peaceful with parking right outside the house. But the biggest surprise was that this house delivered everything it promised in the write up and more - the rooms are as big as they look (huge) , the décor is as lovely as photographed and the pool is divine. Everything was spotless and we settled in immediately. Spacious, light and quiet, the only difficult decision was which of the huge suites should we occupy? We could have happily gone with another family and everyone could have had the BEST bedroom plus there are plenty of reception rooms and bathrooms as well as the Games Room which was brilliantly equipped and very exciting. Not even the unseasonal weather could dampen our spirits when we knew we were returning to this house. I now understand the proper use of the word 'Awesome'. This place is awesome. Would we stay again? A resounding yes. Did we want to come home? No. Did we ever regret not staying in a Disney resort? No. We only wish we had more time to spend at the house as it was superb.

Extremely clean, new house smell, all rooms were nice and property manager very nice!

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean, neat and well kept. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. Laundry room had large washer and dryer to wash larger loads. Clean swimming pool area with sensors on the doors to give warming if children went out of the doors towards the pool area. Plenty of linen! Located near Target, Publix, Walmart, CVS and Walgreens. Plenty of restaurants around! We will definitely rent this home again!

Thoroughly enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at The Villa Esquire. The house and pool were very comfortable and our host Nikki was very helpful, both before and during our stay. Convenient location to all parks and main road networks, which made our holiday travel very straightforward, too.
