About the property

4 Bed/2 Bath Villa Sleeps 8, Private South Pool surrounded by tropical forest!

Forget no rear neighbors! How about no SIDE neighbors? Enjoy the amazing privacy of Breezy Oak Villa! Hidden away on the edge of a beautiful conservation area, with a pool surrounded by lush landscaping, this terrific villa provides tranquility, privacy and safety, yet is a short fifteen minute drive to the Magic Kingdom in Disney World. You’ll cherish the memories you make in this comfortable 4 bed/2 bath villa that raises the standard for Orlando vacation rentals.

(Please also see our other property located nearby. Property ID# 508394.)

You’ll quickly appreciate the care and attention to detail that goes into this beloved Florida home. Everything is considered, planned and provided to make your stay the best it can be.

The Villa

This fully air-conditioned villa comfortably sleeps eight people (on recent quality mattresses) in four bedrooms, each with its own closet. (We don't use a sofa bed to increase capacity). Three double bedrooms (2 Twins, 1 Queen, 2 Twins) and the main bath (sink, toilet, tub w/shower) are located on one side of the home, while the master bedroom (King Double Pillow-Top Mattress) with ensuite (sink, toilet, large walk-in shower with direct access to the lanai) and walk-in closet is located on the other side of the home.

You’ll find the kitchen well-equipped with quality appliances, cutlery and cookware for family meals, far beyond the typical area vacation home standards. Quality furniture, electronics, and games room allow you to enjoy your vacation in carefree style. The open layout home encourages everyone sharing and enjoying their time together, while the four bedrooms allow them to retreat to their own private space when desired. And the pool…

Oh, the pool! The pool at Breezy Oak Villa is truly a piece-of-heaven on earth. Enjoy relaxing in the 89º degree water, listening to tropical birds in the forest beyond, serenading you as your troubles float away on a gentle Florida breeze. One of our first guests described Breezy Oak Villa as the most relaxing place he’s ever been on vacation. It truly is!

The lounge opens out to the Lanai (covered deck) which overlooks the pro-maintained South-facing pool, completely covered by a screen enclosure to keep out insects and debris. A separate entrance gives access to the pool from the master bath. Jump out of the pool and into the shower to warm up and rinse off!

Amazing Privacy

Unlike most vacation homes, Breezy Oak Villa provides true privacy! The Villa has no rear neighbors, and it has practically no SIDE neighbors as well! See photographs. The pool is surrounded by a landscaped yard, bordered by tropical forest. The villa surrounds the pool and lanai on the other two sides. No one will be watching you in your pool, and you won't be looking at them in theirs either! No barking dogs, obnoxious or noisy neighbors to bother you... just the sounds of nature and your own family splashing in the clear water of your very private pool under the warm Florida sun!

(As you study vacation rentals, pay close attention to the proximity of neighbors to the pool enclosure, especially on the side of the home. You’ll discover that a ‘private’ pool usually isn’t so private after all, even at homes without rear neighbors.)

Security and Convenience

Amenities like Fibre-Optic Internet and TV, with Hi-Speed Wifi, a video library of kids and family movies, X-Box console, TVs in every bedroom, an AIR CONDITIONED games room with a quality slate pool table and full-size air hockey, provide hours of fun for our guests.

Even though the home is located in a very safe area, we take the security and comfort of our guests seriously. Emergency lighting, fire extinguishers, pool safety alarms, smoke detectors, remote monitored alarm system, CCTV cameras monitoring the front exterior of the home, electronic door locks and automatic patio door closers, along with remote-monitored heating, A/C, hot water, electrical and internet service mean we can promptly provide service if needed (often before guests are aware of an issue).


Just outside of the tourist zone around Disney World, Breezy Oak Villa provides privacy and safety for your family, in an area where you can enjoy an evening stroll by the lake, and your kids outside unattended. There are no gates at the entrance of Thousand Oaks – we don’t need them! The best way to be safe in the Orlando area is to stay in a very safe area.

On most evenings you can hear the fireworks going off at Epcot from our doorstep! You can drive from the villa to the parking lot of the Magic Kingdom (at the far north end of the Disney resort) in less than 15 minutes!

Breezy Oak Villa is close enough for convenience, but off the beaten path enough to provide you with all the safety, rest and relaxation you need!

Guest Experience

As experienced visitors to the central Florida region with our own family, plus additional knowledge and expertise (our son worked for Disney as a cast member at Epcot), we’ve welcomed over 400 couples and families to our properties since 2009. We've set up our home to make visiting central Florida fun, stress-free, and comfortable for families just like yours.

When you stay with us, you get personalized service from a family who knows the area and the parks, and knows what you need to have a fabulous Florida family vacation, plus the professional assistance of skilled business owners with 25 years experience in customer service. We take great care of our guests!

• No premiums for paying by credit card. It keeps guest’s payments safe!

• Complete kitchen, towels and bed linens, plus separate pool towels provided!

• Our guests get access to attraction tickets at the guaranteed lowest price.

• We provide home supplies for your use, including

- Toilet paper

- Paper towels

- Dishwashing Liquid

- Dishwasher Detergent

- Dish cleaning brush and scrub pads

- Kitchen Trash Bags

- Laundry Soap (enough for 10 loads)

- Liquid Hand Soap (at all sinks)

Most vacation rentals do not, forcing you to buy and transport supplies (often much more than you need) while on vacation.

A Baby Pack is available for $5 per day which includes high chair, pack-n-play and strollers. Full crib rental can be arranged at additional cost.

A full size BBQ is available for our guests for $5 per day. We provide a quality 5-burner gas BBQ, tools, cleaning brush, tank with propane, plus a 2nd spare full tank on-property to ensure that you never run out of fuel.

When you stay with us you will get an exclusive online Reservations Management web page on our system, where you can review reservation details, make payments, view and download custom maps, and get an electronic copy of our home manual.

Suitable for elderly or infirm, Wheelchair accessible


If you’re looking for just a cheap roof over your head, Breezy Oak Villa is likely not for you. That’s okay. We understand that not everyone will appreciate or can afford the quality of privacy, location, accommodations and service that Breezy Oak Villa provides. Still, many of our guests remark on the value they have received in their guest exit surveys.

For rates comparable to a single Disney value resort motel room which sleeps only four, our guests receive an entire four-bed home that sleeps eight, has a full-size, well equipped kitchen, up-to-date electronics, full-size laundry, games room, and an enclosed private pool in a beautifully landscaped private yard that has been described as a ‘mini-resort’, and all located an easy 15-minute drive from Disney’s Magic Kingdom.

When you stay with us, you are staying ‘like an owner’ and paying what you would if you owned the property. If other area properties are offered at give-away rates, question how they can have rates so low, and why they find it necessary to subsidize people’s holidays in order to get bookings. If they are struggling to hold on to their properties, you could be putting your vacation at risk by booking at non-sustainable rates.

Check our reviews and you will see consistent praise, especially from ‘serial’ renters who have had a chance to experience what other vacation rental properties are like. Breezy Oak Villa provides true value for guests who appreciate a relaxing, private, quality vacation rental experience.

Couples, Snowbirds and ‘Best Prices’:

Due to the quality and privacy of our vacation homes, we have couples who book with us (many on honeymoon)! Most snowbirds simply looking to enjoy Florida weather will likely find other properties (often more economical because they are smaller, simpler, and not so close to the theme parks) more suitable, although we do receive a number of cherished snowbird guests each year.

We can not provide discounts for smaller groups (this does not lower operating costs); or longer-term guests (who usually cause more wear & tear and drive up utility costs). Instead, we provide everyone with the best value we can. Unlike hotels, everyone receives our ‘best price’. We do not discriminate.

Feel Free to Book or Inquire on this Site

The rates shown in this listing are accurate, and the availability calendar is updated automatically from our own booking calendar, so you can trust that the information shown here is correct. (Please note that listing site software is not designed to accommodate minimum stay requirements, which may affect availability of your desired dates.)

If you have any questions, or would like a specific quote for your dates, do not hesitate to inquire via the link above. We respond promptly to every inquiry with full and complete information. We welcome your interest and look forward to serving you. Hopefully we’ll be able to to welcome you to Breezy Oak Villa very soon!

About Robert

We are Robert & Donna. We are a friendly, outgoing couple from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in Western Canada. We have been married for 30 years.

Robert designs and builds new houses, and Donna is a very successful recreational travel trailer sales representative.

Robert is a creative whiz with a strong design and writing orientation, and Donna is a master chef with a huge library of cookbooks, and a very strong artistic and creative flair as well.

We LOVE travelling in Florida, and love our villa located just south of Walt Disney World. We have spent a great deal of time upgrading and tweaking it in order to make our guests feel pampered and comfortable. Without doubt, our villa has the nicest landscaping in our entire subdivision, and one of the most private yard and pool areas to be found in the entire Disney area.

We have three (now) adult children, the eldest who worked as a cast member at Epcot in Disney's International Program for a year. Robert is a bit of a theme park buff, and very knowledgeable about the Central Florida area. All of this allows him to provide excellent advice to our villa guests about their trips; what to do, where and when to go, how much time to allow, things suitable for children, etc.

We also understand how to 'do' Disney on a small budget, or a big one if that is your taste, and are happy to share our advice and experience with our many guests.

Robert purchased this villa in 2009

Why Robert chose Thousand Oaks

We first stayed in the area in 2003, and completely fell in love with the place! I timed the drive from the driveway to the parking lot of the Magic Kingdom, and it was under fifteen minutes, yet the villa was located in a very quiet and safe conservation sub-division, that was really hidden out of the way. The homes in the area were not built with no personality and right on top of each other like so many vacation rental developments are. As business owners we were intrigued by the aspects of running a vacation rental business, and began watching the real estate listings for the home we had stayed in, and when it came up for sale (six years later), we bought it!

The conservation subdivision where our home is located has a good mix of owner residents and vacation homes, so the area is safe and kept in good repair. It is very beautiful, designed around a central 40 acre lake, and is very pleasant for a morning or evening stroll, when one can enjoy many birds, the odd small wildlife and a pleasant 'Hello' from neighbours.

Our particular villa is located at the end of a cul-de-sac, at the end of a 120 ft. driveway, at the edge of the development against virgin tropical forest on the back and side of the home where the pool and lanai are situated. This affords our guests incredible privacy, without being alone in the country.

What makes this villa unique

There is an absolute joy that permeates our villa. Many of our guests have described it as the most relaxing place they have ever been on a vacation, and it is!

Our yard is beautifully landscaped, and our lanai overlooks our enclosed pool area, which opens out to our rear yard, a park-like area featuring thick, lush lawn, palmettos (palm trees), and Florida forest. There is also a small pond out back, just beyond the edge of the yard for added interest.

The villa is quiet, comfortable and relaxing, yet it is within 15 minutes drive of everything Walt Disney World has to offer, and Universal Studios, Sea World, (20 minutes) and the new LegoLand (30 minutes) theme parks are all close by as well. Beyond that there are all of the shopping, dining and golf opportunities that one would expect in the No.1 tourist destination in the world! Daytona Beach, Tampa, Clearwater Beach, the Kennedy Space Center are all about an hour's drive away. We have used the villa as a launching point to explore so much of Florida's incredible natural and cultural amenities.

One of the very unique benefits our guests enjoy is the very professional level of management and care we bring to the operation of our villa.

Each of our guests receive their own personalized web page from which to manage their reservation, allowing them to confirm details, make payments, and download custom maps and other documents we have prepared for our guests, including a detailed home manual. In addition to this, our guests receive a pass code to order genuine theme park tickets online at the guaranteed best price (without hassle or timeshare presentations) which will then be delivered right to the villa free of charge!

We take great care of our guests!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful vacation and staying in your home was a major contributor. We thoroughly enjoyed the neighbourhood and the privacy. From our perspective that's the real appeal of the home.

I suspect unlike most of your guests our vacation objective was purely rest and relaxation. We have done the amusement parks in the past and now view our winter getaway as an opportunity to enjoy life at a slower pace, catch up on reading, do some sightseeing, enjoy some nice meals out, etc. A very low key laid back time to recharge before returning to the hustle and bustle of our normal life. To this end your home offered us the perfect retreat.

Great Stay at Breezy Oaks

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Breezy Oak property. Still can't get over how quiet and peaceful that neighborhood is. The house, grounds and pool area are well kept. We really liked the new shower in the master bathroom and those two really comfortable leather sofas that provided comfort after long days at Disney. We found the place conveniently located to everything (groceries, gas, pizza, pharmacy, and of course Disney). Couple things that stood out was the info provided by the owners to prepare us for the stay and the follow up when an issue with the clothes dryer was raised. It is obvious that Robert and his wife take great pride in this property and really have their guests comfort in mind. We would definitely stay here again and would have absolutely no issues whatsoever recommending it to friends and family.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words Robert. You were a great guest to have, and I really appreciated your flexibility and understanding when we needed to swap out the dryer with a brand new one. I'm glad you liked the sofas! We purchased them for our other property, and liked them SO much we decided to add them to Breezy Oak Villa as well. We look forward to you and your family returning again!

Wonderful stay in a clean and well kept home!

  • 5 of 5

We found our stay at Breezy Oak Villa to be thoroughly delightful. It provides a quiet oasis in the middle of the many attractions available in the Disney/Orlando area. The house is extremely clean and well maintained. The landscaping has a very tropical feel. The pool and backyard are quiet and private. It's a home we very much look forward to staying at again in the future.

Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Five of us (my husband and I, our 2 children - ages 1 and 6 - and my mom) stayed at Breezy Oak Villa from April 7 - 14th and had a great week! The area is quiet and private, but still close to lots of shopping and attractions. The villa is clean, comfortable, and just about everything that we needed was already there.

The heated pool option is fantastic and the colorful pool lights were fun. My 6 year old loved night time swimming after a long day of Disney fun!

Robert was always very helpful and quick to answer any questions that we had (via email and telephone) before, during, and after our stay.

We felt at home at Breezy Oaks and would certainly go back again!

Perfect for family time!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything on our wish list, and was even better then we had hoped!!! Robert was very quick to reply when I had a question and resolved my one and only issue straight away. After a full day at the parks it was the perfect quite retreat for us. With teens & tweens extra space means everything! The house had utensil and appliance we needed plus more! We came from Ireland and were up early the first morning and the lights in the pool were so pretty and made for a beautiful swim at sunrise. I will be back!!

SouthWest of Orlando and just outside of the tourist zone around Disney World, Breezy Oak Villa provides privacy and safety for your family, in an area where you can enjoy an evening stroll by the lake, and have your kids outside unattended. There are no gates at the entrance of Thousand Oaks – we don’t need them! The best way to be safe in the Orlando area is to stay in a very safe area.

This gem of a home is tucked away on the edge of our quiet beautiful community, beside pure virgin forest, allowing you to experience a bit of the ‘real’ Florida. When you need to escape the hustle of the theme parks, wind down and cool off, this hidden Florida home provides the perfect retreat!

Situated in a nature conservation area 2 miles south of the Walt Disney World property boundary, you have quick access to Universal Studios, Sea World, shopping and dining, and 5 incredible golf courses minutes away. LegoLand is approximately 30 minutes drive to the South. Within about an hour’s drive are Daytona Beach and the Kennedy Space Centre on the Atlantic Coast, and Tampa & Busch Gardens on the Gulf Coast.

The villa is easily reached from Orlando International Airport via the Central Florida GreeneWay and I-4, the Interstate Highway which is just five minutes away.

Convenient to Disney? On most evenings you can hear the fireworks going off at Epcot from our doorstep! You can drive from the villa to the parking lot of the Magic Kingdom (at the far north end of the Disney resort) in less than 15 minutes!

Breezy Oak Villa is close enough for convenience, but off the beaten path enough to provide you with all the safety, rest and relaxation you need!
