About Mike

Michael Jackson

Married to Gillian with three boys 21, 20 & 15

My job title is Grid Control Engineer and along with my shift colleagues we run the Northern Ireland electricity grid.

Our family all play a variety of musical instruments and we play 'by ear'. We are in different local bands.

I still like to windsurf and snow ski but will try any sport. After golfing on some of the local Florida courses I am seriously considering taking it up.

Mike purchased this villa in 2008

Why Mike chose Glenbrook Resort

After checking out a number of luxury properties which had been shortlisted by my realtor, I decided on Jacksonvilla. I knew, for renting, the villa needed to be within 15mins of Disney and it met that criteria. As we drove into Glenbrook Resort my immediate impression was how well the resort was presented. Glenbrook is an award winning Resort and very worthy of that award. On arriving at the villa it became obvious that the location beside the Clubhouse would be perfect not only for our family but for renting to our guests. I called my family back home to discuss and they poured over the many photos I had taken of all the villas. Jacksonvilla got a unamimous vote from all the family as the preferred location.

I loved the location beside theClubhouse and this was something no other properties could offer. On inspection of the villa the 3000sqft size really impressed me and the very private and pleasant outlook from the pool area convinced me this was the one.

We have worked very hard to raise the standard of the amenities and continue to invest in improvements. These have been recognised by our guests in their reviews.

Our family not only make tremendous use of the amenities in the villa but also the Clubhouse amenities next door. We effectively have these amenities as an extension to Jacksonvilla's. Many of our guests have commented about the location and the amenities. Jacksonvilla has been extremely busy this year as more and more guests choose to stay here. We very much hope you will too and we would love to get the chance to welcome you to our home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely home and great pool. Had a great time in the Parks, airboats and shopping!!

Many thanks!

Jackson-Villa Perfect Vacation Rental Villa for Large Family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7, 4 adults and 3 children, recently spent a week's vacation at the Jackson-Villa located in the Glenbrook Resort, close to the Theme Parks. The Villa provided plenty of space and a variety of amenities for a large family. The kids enjoyed having their own TV in their own room and everybody enjoyed the swimming pool. WiFi was a big plus as it allowed everyone to have their own activities. The place is very clean, nicely furnished and very well maintained. The owner provided all the required information to get the house and find everything we needed close by. We would definitely go back and recommend the Villa to our friends.

Great Vacation Villa

  • 5 of 5

This property is situated in a quiet Cul-De-Sac (off US highway 27) next to the resident’s clubhouse. Many of the owners of neighbouring properties live there all year making it quieter than normal holiday villa complexes. This makes it ideal to relax in the pool after hitting the parks. You are free to use the clubhouse facilities which boost a large pool, as well as a fitness room, video room and the use of a computer and printer. The property is bright and spacious. All rooms have lovely décor with good quality furnishings. The property is well maintained. The kitchen has a large fridge/freezer and cooker and is equipped with a large range of utensils. There are a number of supermarkets (Walmart, Publix) and restaurants nearby. Bruce who manages the property on behalf of the owners is on hand and nothing is too much trouble. I would thoroughly recommend this villa as we have had a great time and didn't want to leave.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of eight golfers from Ontario who venture to the Orlando area each fall for one last "golf your brains out" week before retiring from the game until the next Canadian spring allows for yet another season.

We are returning renters of Jacksonvilla which in itself says something about the level of satisfaction we have with this accommodation. The house is well appointed, centrally located and fits our needs to a "tee"!

The house's owner, Michael, is very accommodating to deal with as is his property management "guy" who deals with your every need on a very timely basis.

Great place, great price!

Only one complaint...

  • 5 of 5

The only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer. Our family had such a wonderful time! The house was wonderful and lived up to all it's reviews. Our family ranged from an 11 month old, five year old, two teenagers and nine adults and we all had plenty of room. We made some wonderful family memories and will definitely recommend your property to all our friends and family. We had plenty of privacy, but still had access to all stores and restaurants seemingly right around the corner. Thanks for providing a top quality place for families to stay and feel at home away from home.

Beautiful home perfect location to all the parks, while allowing peace/relaxation at end of day!

  • 5 of 5

Flew in to Tampa, drove an hour and ten minutes to this beautiful huge pool/spa home.Great location to Disney, which was less than 22 minutes drive (vac. home to Disney gate.) Besides the great off season rate, the house provided so much room, we regretted not asking another family to join us. The kids even asked on numerous occasions if they could please leave the Disney Parks, and go back to the house to swim/go in the hot tub!

The clubhouse next door offered great amenities such as tennis,pool, air hockey, ping pong, as well as what was essentially a private pool for us during our stay.

Our next visit will entail more R&R and less hurry to the parks! A perfect vacation awaits!!

Awesome Florida / Disney experience

  • 5 of 5

The rental is all that was promised. Spacious bedrooms, 6 of them, we had 3 families and each set of adults had their own master sweet. We had our own heated pool and hot tub. Grocery, Walmart and plenty of restaurants within a couple of minutes. If we plan another trip to the area this is where we will stay. Michael was flexible and great to get along with. Thanks.
