There are so many Villas to choose from in Orlando, but what makes our Villa different from the others?
Usually the answer is location, location, location but with our home it is not only our location (only 15 minutes to Disney) but also crucially that our beautiful home is so private and not overlooked and is superbly luxurious!
The very last thing you need when you arrive at your dream holiday Villa full of expectation is to have another Villa backing directly on to you with the resulting lack of privacy and noise at all hours of the day from their Pool. That is what makes our home so special. There is NO house behind you, just our huge extended Deck, beautiful South Facing Pool, Spa, superb Gas BBQ, green area and we are only a minutes walk from beautiful Tower Lake. We have even added a stunning new Outdoor Seating Area with all weather Wicker Sofas, beautiful weather proof cushions measuring 9 feet x 7 feet with a coffee table. This area will be fantastic to relax in at night with a drink or to retreat to for a snooze or quiet chat during the hot days. We even have installed a Sun Shade Sail to provide respite from Florida's glorious hot sunshine. This a massive addition to this great house and will ensure that you have a great vacation!
We now have two Themed kids rooms (both twins). One is Sponge Bob and the other is Angry Birds and both look great! We have also added a Floor safe for your valuables (just in case!)
Add to this that we are located in a gated Community and you can see why Calabay Parc is so popular. Nothing but nothing compares to stepping from the downstairs Master on to our South Facing sun filled Deck before breakfast to have a quick swim and Jacuzzi to set you on your way for another great day in Orlando!! It truly has to be experienced to be believed!!
When you then consider the standard of our Management Team, the incredible list of equipment such as luxury solid oak furniture, 2 fabulous King beds, 8 T.V's including 50 inch LED with HD channels, Games Room with Pool Table, Air Hockey, and Foosball, Broadband Internet PC, Wi-Fi, Home Cinema System, Spa, stunning views, Gas BBQ, 3 DVD Players, Ceiling Fans throughout and the fact that we so close to all attractions, then you can see why the same guests return year after year. Imagine strolling out the front door of our house with the fishing rods we supply to take the kids fishing from our Calabay Parc's own private Boat Dock, you may even give the a real thrill by looking out for our resident Gator!!
So why don't you treat yourself to one of the top 5% Villas in Orlando at a very reasonable price....we want you and your family to have the vacation of a lifetime!
'The proof of the pudding is the eating' as we say in Ireland so here are just two of the countless Testimonials that we have received both from American, Canadian and U.K. families.
Hi there, Just a note to say thank you so much for the use of your villa, it was beautiful. We have been to Orlando several times before and this was by far the best we have ever had. It was exactly as described and more. Hope everything was okay when we left and when next we are coming to Florida, you can be sure we will be in touch. Thanks again.

Hello Ross, Thank you for sending my security deposit back so soon. Your house was everything you said it would be. We had a wonderful time there. I also have to tell you we needed some help with the pool. So we called your Manager and she fixed us up right away. She is excellent. Again thank you for a real nice place to stay. I will hopefully return in the near future. Thank you. The Noel Family, Penn, USA

About Ross Barry
I am a Financial Adviser based in Dublin, Ireland married to Linda with 3 kids Gavin, Keith & Bronwen. Apart from my Holiday Home letting (hobby!!), I like to play Golf, I fly small planes and I enjoy swimming and skiing.
Ross Barry purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Ross Barry chose Sud Department
As a family we love Orlando. The climate, attractions and the cheap flying (one of my hobbies) made it a simple decision to buy there! Calabay Parc at Tower Lake is a stunning Community and out of all the choices available to me it was an easy decision with its fantastic views, huge space and the fact that it was so close to everything. We paid for a premium lot to give us complete privacy whilst also installing a Spa and Games Room all of which are items I would love to have myself if I was renting a Villa. In simple terms, I would expect a high standard if I was renting a house myself and that is the standard I give to our guests at Calabay Parc at Tower Lake!
What makes this Villa unique
I love the fact that every morning you can walk for two minutes to get to the boat dock at our Private Lake! In the evening, you can listen to the amazing chorus of frogs and crickets close to the lake. The whole house is so large and spacious with a massive Pool Deck. The spaciousness is fabulous and the house is so well designed that when I have to leave to travel back to Ireland to my home, I am missing it before I even leave!!

Great place for family to enjoy each other.
A great place for a family get together ...
Great pool & whirlpool.
Close enough to Orlando for the parks.
A few things could be fixed (tv remotes, etc) but overall a great place to stay!
Would love to return next year!
Wonderful property! Rob and Jan W
We had a great time at this property. It is spacious and clean! Plenty of room and the pool area is awesome! We would definitely recommend this property to others. My wife and I had a wonderful vacation.
Beautiful house, we will be back!!
The house was beautiful! We all had a great time! The pool was everyone’s absolute favorite!!
Spacious and secure
This is a very spacious rental home in a gated community. We rented this as a family vacation for 4 adults and 2 children mainly to visit Disney World. The drive to Disney was a good 1/2 hour in the morning but at night it was more like an hour return because of traffic. It was an easy, direct drive to Disney. Lots of fast food venues close by but nowhere nice to eat. This rental was very easy to find. Good parking space.
The house was very spacious in every respect. Bathrooms were large, big dining area and the bedrooms were nicely arranged. The pool was superb. Clean and spacious outdoor space. Excellent, as you see in the pictures.
However, this rental could use a bit of work in the bedding department and the kitchen utensils and the laundry machine. In the downstairs bedroom the bedding was worn and sheets tended to slip off the mattress and we continually had to straighten them. The kitchen cookware was hopeless. The stove needs replacing. The laundry machine works but very old.
As for the games room......it was very smelly and damp, we could not use it.
I would say it was a very good rental but definitely not luxury.
I have to say that I find this review to be very unfair and even a touch bizarre. The guest praises all of the really important things that we have at the house such as space, security, parking, arrangements, bathrooms and our "superb outdoor space". OK good so far.....but then she criticises the Orlando traffic, the local restaurants, our Range, Washer, Bed Linen, Kitchen Utensils and our Games Room.
Everyone who visits Orlando knows how bad the traffic on I4 is in the evening, what has that got to do with my house? No local Restaurants? What about the famous Manny's or the lovely Ovation Bistro all within a stone's throw of the house plus all of the other fabulous restaurants perhaps only 10 minutes drive away. The Range and the Washer work absolutely fine. I used them myself only 2 weeks before these guests arrived, if there was a problem I would have replaced them instantly. The bed linen! I stayed in that exact bed for 8 nights 2 weeks earlier, what is she talking about? Slipping Bed Linen?....that's bizarre! Kitchen Utensils, we stayed, cooked and ate there for 4 nights of our 8 and everything was perfectly fine. And finally, the "smelly and damp" Games Room. That is outrageous and no guest ever made a remark like that. There is absolutely nothing wrong with our Games Room. If there was an odor my wife would have smelt it at a 1000 paces and she never noticed anything Finally, why didn't the guest just call our manager to discuss any of her "so called" issues? That is what you are supposed to do and anything that was genuine would have been fixed up within 24 hours for her by my excellent Property Manager Becky.
Having dealt with literally thousands of guests over the years, I reckon I understand Villa guests pretty well. This guest falls in to the "over fastidious category", i.e. tiny perceived flaws in her view of our beautiful house have clouded her overall review in to being an unbalanced and unfair review of a superb home which I am delighted to say is the opinion of the other 99.9% of our visitors.
Hurricane shortened our stay!
Holiday was shortened by 3 days due to Hurricane Irma, plus owner let us know we couldn't stay there on our rescheduled arrival date (no power and pool netting damaged). Stayed in a hotel for 3 nights before receiving email from owner saying villa was all good, so moved there the following morning.
Great to stay there again.
Beautiful, roomy , comfortable and very clean.
Pool is a huge bonus too.
Great area for sunbathing and relaxing.
Great location for grocery shopping (Walmart) and nearby strip mall too.
Car is essential though and makes things much easier.
We'll certainly visit again.
excellent villa in secure location
After a long wait to get through immigration we finally arrived at the villa. There was no problem accessing the key and we were straight in. (kids straight in the pool!!).
The villa was impeccable and all the rooms were fantastic. The beds lovely and comfortable and nice and big! Plenty clean towels and linen. Just loads of space for 8 of us.
We were a bit worried about whether to have the pool heated or not but we found that in August you really don't need it. Pool lovely and clean and the kids were in there every day. Plenty toys for the kids for the pool.
Kitchen adequate; we didn't eat in so never really used much apart from boiling a kettle but there appeared to be everything one would need in there. We didn't use the BBQ but I noticed it was clean.
Due to being in a gated community it felt very safe.
The supermarket is just round the corner so nice and handy, especially when you have just arrived and need to get some essentials.
Not too far a drive from Disney where we had tickets for.
We would highly recommend this to other families. Also thanks to Ross for pre holiday help.
We are located right in the middle of the Theme Park capital of the world! Disney, Universal, Legoland, Busch Gardens, Seaworld and all of the water parks conveniently only a matter of minutes away. You can even drive for an hour and spend the day on the beach even bring the kids for a surf lesson to Cocoa Beach....great fun, I have done it myself!
