We have soft upholstered pool furniture, comfortable sun loungers, occasional drink tables, to provide shade for the fairer skinned a large under cover lanai area with full dining facilities, large fans and sound system.

All doors to the pool area are fitted with child alarms and a child safety net around the pool.

Babies & Young Children: After travelling with babies many times, we understand how stressful it can be to vacation with babies. With that in mind, we have tried to include some things that a family with a babies might need. The items we include are: Two Cribs, a High Chair, Strollers, Bed Rails, Door Alarms and a Pool Fence so you can relax. and know your kids are Ok

For your convenience and pleasure we also have a desktop pc with an internet connection.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say a huge thank your letting us stay in your Villa in Orlando in August. We arrived on the 8th of August with our family from Ireland and my brother and his family arrived from New York.

We found the house absolutely fantastic, the space, the ammenites, the localty, all of which made a very enjoyable stay to Orlando. We had 6 children between us so, all under the age of 10 so they were very excited about the pool. When we arrived home after our two week holiday we asked them what was the highlight of their trip and their response was the pool and their cousins.

The house itself was excellent, it was very clean, the space was great when there was two families sharing. My children loved all the bedrooms, my four year old especially loved the Nemo room. Even though I had seen photos on your very informative website I was still amazed by the house when we got there, I didn’t realise it would be so big.

So on behalf of myself and my family, thanks again.

Kind regards,

Jenny & Joe

Lovely home, well equipped kitchen and garage for a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the use of your lovely home. As seasoned travellers we found your kitchen well supplied to meet all our needs and more! the garage had bikes to enjoy as well as strollers and child equipment to use if needed and the very large pool with many comfortable lounge chairs was a huge hit with the family!! Thank you so much!! We hope to be back:)

Large spacious property great area but villa underwhelming in need of tlc

  • 3 of 5

On arrival we were given the wrong door code at 745pm we finally got the door code it handnt been changed from last visitors stay and key lock code wasnt working with either code and was not known. Upon entering the villa the floors were filthy and there was marks on the walls and none of the toilets had been cleaned but did have sanitized labels on them. We spent our first day cleaning after the maintenance company never got back to us.also what appeared to be mouse droppings-were found in main suite bathroom although not confirmed no mouse found. The villa is very large and spacious but the online photos dont sell it correctly the kids play park is unplayable and is dangerously loose. The pool gate is torn and doesnt fasten correctly. The screening round the pool area was damaged badly in 4 areas and took a week to repair after maintenance finally came round to sort it.The bedrooms etc were very nice but some of the beds look dated and damaged. The kitchen and utensils however were excellent and there was plenty of towels the pool was also clean at all times. There was issues with pool heating we paid for 24 hours but it never came on before 9am and went off at 10pm meaning the pool was cold most days even tho it never fell below 55 f it should have been on 24 hours as paid for. The villa overall was ok but a bit underwhelming considering the cost to stay and does require tlc as its not as its portrayed currently online. maintenance company who we found to be extremely unhelpful. They were contacted about the door lock code issue it was never changed in the 21 days we stayed! The cleanliness upon entry was very poor and a deep clean charge is on your rental this was never done. The actual pool area etc is very nice but the tv shown in the shaded area is no longer there which along with the kids play area was a disappointment for us as our party was looking forward to being able to relax outside and let the kids play in that area. The final issue was on our day of checkout the rules state a 10am exit our villa cleaner turned up to the villa at 910 am and proceeded to take all the cleaning equipment out whislt we were still having our breakfast which meant we felt pressured to leave at 940 instead of the 10am exit we paid for. The owners during the booking phase were very good but i think a look at the mainetnance company and the photos used to sell the property need to be recified to show a true reflection on cost of the rental. C+

Our home had a nice setup, but is somewhat in need of some upkeep. Our oven did not function properly, losing heat and despite being set at 400 degrees, often dropping to under 200. This made cooking very difficult. The pool heat was only functional for part of the trip. Some areas clearly hadn't been vacuumed or dusted in some time. Only one of two clothes dryers was functional. Lights were burned out in the refrigerator. There were a lot of weeds growing in the pool area. We really liked the 4 master suites which allowed plenty of bedroom and bathroom space. It just felt as though not much had been done to keep the house fully functional and modern over the past couple of years.

Owner's Response: Hi Jordan, To say I am surprised and disappointed would be an understatement. We literally spend several thousand dollars monthly maintaining our home. I wish you had brought these issues to my attention while you were there. I would have acted on them immediately. This is the only way we can resolve any issue to a guests satisfaction. We can't foresee a faulty oven or a blown bulb but we can have it fixed immediately when we are informed. Our management company provides a bi monthly weed control. But in saying that weeds can pop up at any time. You know from the many emails between us that I am extremely attentive and responsive to any query a guest might have. I just wish you had called or emailed me and I would have resolved it immediately. But thank you Jordan for now taking the time to bring these issues to my attention. They will be resolved immediately. Caroline

  • 5 of 5

Villa has a quality feel about it, the pool is fantastic and it has spectacular views over the lake, The Kitchen has all the quality modern facilities you could ask for, all the bedrooms are of a good size, have very comfy beds and have televisions in them. The main Living room area is a good size and has all the electronics you need to be fully entertained.

All in all an Ideal Villa to stay in.

5 Star Luxury for 5 Star Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic two weeks at this villa in October 2007 it was exactly what it said it would be. We were a party of three families with children aged from 5 years to 14 years and it suited us all. Its proximity to Disney is brilliant and ideal for after a long hard day trecking around the Parks! I would highly recommend this villa to anyone.
