This place is amazing! Our family has stayed at a few different places in this gated comunity and this home was great. This home is very well kept and clean. It was definitely equipped to host 2 families. So many extras, they certainly thought of everything. We spent every minute we could outside in the pool or out on the lani from sunrise to well beyond sunset. The beds were very cozy. All the rooms were beautifully decorated with attention to details. We wouldn't hesitate to book here again.

Thank you for having our family stay in your home, Amanda and David. It certainly was a wonderful vacation.

Excellent place to go and unwind after a Day at Disney. Pool and Jucuzzi were set perfect and our family could swim and hang out there in December!! Beds are comfortable, kitchen well equipped for any meal you might want to make. The hosts made themselves avalaible should we need anything, which we did not. Lovely décor , we had a fantastic time.

Owner's Response: Thank you Dick for your lovely review - we always want our guests to have a great time. Being on a corner plot overlooking open space allows for that sense of space and privacy by the pool. We are frequent visitors to our Florida home and so can keep things fresh and up to date. We like our guests to have a good selection of equipment in the kitchen if they do wish to cook and above all feel comfortable and 'at home'.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Read lots of reviews before we decided on this house! So glad people were helpful and honest! It is just perfect! We had 2 families with 5 kids ranging from 4-9 years old. Great space in all the rooms- and the younger ones loved the Mickey/Minnie room! We did not do Magic Kingdom, but did Legoland ( thats why we chose this location) - it is only 20 minutes to Legoland. We also did a day at Disney Springs which again was only a 25 minute drive. It is close to shopping (Super Walmart- 2 min.) and even a Target with a few other good stores!

The owners have thought of everything- they have everything you can think of for the kitchen (including a cooler you can take on a day trip, and Tupperware for leftovers). They even have 6 raincoat ponchos (which came in handy on our trip to Dunedin to see the Toronto Blue Jays). Kids loved the games room and using the Wii to play tennis, baseball, bowling etc. We also loves the grass space in the middle of all the houses that the kids played football and baseball and even made friends with other kids staying in the surrounding houses. We were worried about the small size of the pool at first, but the kids just adapted and made the most of it! The hot tub was fantastic- very hot- which isn't always the case with a rental house!

Thank you so much for sharing your house with us! We LOVED it!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for those kind words. we know any guest that comes to our home always loves it. It is important to us that guests have that bit of luxury on their vacation. Luckily our pool is a good size for a private villa pool and we added the extra deck extension to create even more space. So pleased the children loved it - our grandchildren love it too!

About David and Amanda Post

We are U.K. owners who love to vacation at the best villa that you could hope for - and it's ours! David worked for a Media information service for the Marine industry and Mandy worked as a teacher. We have two grown up children – our daughter Charlotte is married to Dave and they have a gorgeous son, Arthur who is now five years old, and a beautiful grand-daughter Wynn Rosina, who is 3 years old . Our son Matthew who lives with his partner also live in Aylesbury. We all love going on vacation to Florida and visit our home frequently.

Why David and Amanda Post chose Calabay Parc at Tower Lake

Owning our own house in Florida was a long held dream and now you are about to experience a piece of that dream. We have spent two years living and working in Miami so were able to visit the villa frequently resulting in the house being equipped to the high level we expect ourselves. Consequently our home is well stocked with China, Kitchen electricals and all the other kitchen equipment you may need. One of our aims is to make your vacation a real luxury holiday so we make sure the linens are quality and our beds comfortable. This is not just a vacation home - it's a Home from Home. One guest described it as "Florida's best kept secret".

What makes this villa unique

Brilliant plot - one of the best! Not side to side or back to back. Well stocked with quality goods - no skimping here!! Owners visit frequently so constantly updated. and maintained Extended pool deck with new landscaping providing even more outdoor space and privacy. Keys picked up at the villa lockbox. Gated and manned community.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so very much for letting us share your beautiful Florida villa. We all enjoyed our time here and loved the house. You have it decorated so nicey and after a busy week visiting the Disney parks it was so nice to come back and relax in the pool. Would love to come back and stay again.
