About the property

7 bedrooms, spacious, large well furnished pool deck. See our guest feedback

Florida Star is a luxury air conditioned 7 bedroom villa situated on Glenbrook resort, a short drive to Disney and the other major attractions. We are also convenient for the major shopping malls and outlets as well as essential shopping such as Walmart, Publix, Walgreens, CVS etc.

This villa is decorated, equipped and maintained to very high standards, offering home comforts which our guests often comment on in their reviews.


As you walk through the front door (keys available in a lock box outside so no need to find a remote office to pick these up), you will be greeted by vaulted foyer overlooked by the first floor landing. To the left is the formal lounge and dining area. A place for the adults to relax or dine.


Walking through to the large open plan kitchen, nook (dining area) and family room, you will notice the light and airy feel, with the vaulted ceiling overlooked by the first floor landing and 2 large patio doors leading to the pool deck with the garden backdrop. The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern facilities. Seating at the breakfast table for 6 with an additional 3 at the breakfast bar. In the family area we have a 55” cable HDTV flat screen TV with Bose home theatre system. A selection of DVDs is provided. More DVDs can be borrowed from the clubhouse free of charge.

Off the kitchen is a pantry adjacent to the laundry room.


Leading off the lobby is the gameroom, a great hit for the kids (and many adults). We have a full size slate bed American pool table, Air Hockey and Foosball. There is also a pub table with tall chairs and CD player. The room is decorated with over 100 sporting pictures. Some of them you may recognize, others you may debate.


King master bedroom 1 leads off the family room. With six foot wide four poster bed, large walk in closet, en-suite bathroom with corner bath, walk in shower, his and hers wash basins. Flat screen TV and DVD player. Patio doors leading to pool deck with view of the garden.


Walk up the stairs will take you to the spacious landing which overlooks the vaulted family room to the rear and the vaulted foyer to the front. It also hosts a computer desk with PC and high speed internet for guest use.


Six further bedrooms lead off the upstairs landing, the second King master with en-suite bathroom, two queen bedrooms and three twin bedrooms. All have flat screen TVs and DVD players.


There are three full bathrooms upstairs with one full and a half bathroom downstairs.


Outside in the pool area we have a good size pool with spa and an extended pool deck with lots of space. This is generously equipped with luxury furniture – loungers, relaxers and dining table and chairs. Enjoy the pool or relax in the spa. The pool is not overlooked by properties to the rear. The garden provides a beautiful backdrop adding to the privacy and solitude. On a clear night you may even get a view of the Disney fireworks from here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have just returned from our family vacation at Florida Star last December. What a great experience!. I definitely recommend it !!. The house looked like just what we saw in the pictures. Impeccably clean and organized. We had TV's on every room and even a play room for the kids.(and adults). A nice and clean pool with a hot Jacuzzi. Our only task was an immediate trip to Walmart (1 mile away) to stock up on food and beer. I also liked the fact the villa is extremely quiet and still close to major department stores. During the leasing process, I was in direct contact with Ed and Gill Danvers , the owners, which made a big difference. Planing to return Dec 2017 !!!!!!

Excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

I’m so glad we booked this villa, everything is as it appears in the pictures and more. The villa is kept to a high standard and had everything we needed and more for a family of fourteen inc adults small children and two babies. The photos don’t do this villa any justice at all and upon arrival we were very pleasantly surprised with the villa and its contents. Ed is very helpful and happily answered any questions we had. We will definitely book this villa again and highly recommend it to anyone inc friends & family

Just as expected

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home for extended family to visit the Orlando area. As with most people, this was my first experience. The home is just as depicted on the site. At first I reservation to rent from overseas (UK) but after this experience with Gill and Ed, I will do so with confidence with them. Every question I had was addressed in a timely fashion and the security deposit was handled just as well. Thank you to Ed and Gill for a wonderful experience

Everything and more.

  • 5 of 5

The photographs do this property no justice. It is a fabulous villa, my family were awe struck the villa made the holiday for me, luxurious accommodation with every single need catered for. Prime location. Thanks so much Ed and Gill for allowing us all to enjoy your home. When driving away we all felt rather sad wished it could have lasted longer. One complaint when I arrived home I realised that I must redecorate my house. Thank you both. Regards from Lesley and her family.

If you need a well kept clean house for 14 people, this is excellent. If you are not neat and tidy, please don't rent this and save it for the people who appreciate a well kept house. 2nd time we rented it and it was it it did not disappoint. We will rent again when we return to the area.

Nearest Airport
30 Miles
Orlando International
Nearest Beach
65 Miles

Glenbrook resort, located within an easy 10-15 minute drive from Disney is also convenient for other parks. It is conveniently situated for a great selection of restaurants. Whilst Florida Star offers everything you need for a great vacation, the resort offers complimentary communal pool, gym, tennis and sand volley ball courts. Whilst Glenbrook is described as a resort, this is because of the communal facilities about a 10 minute walk from the villa. It is very peaceful. Orlando International airport is approx 35 minutes. A huge Walmart is a mile away, great for stocking up with provisions. There are also many golf courses within a short drive.

Golf: The pool area is a lot of fun but care needs to be taken especially for the very young or elderly. All pools in Lake County must have a security fence. This can be removed if you wish..

Please feel free to ask any questions about Florida Star when considering a booking without any obligation. We have many satisfied guests who have recommended us to family and friends, after your stay we want you to feel comfortable in doing the same.
