You can drive from our driveway to the parking lot of the Magic Kingdom (at the far north end of Disney World) along comfortable, uncongested highways (and only 2 traffic lights) in less than 15 minutes!
Pleasant Oak Villa is close enough for convenience, but just off the beaten path enough to provide you with all the safety, rest, and relaxation you need! Enjoy the sounds of nature and your own family splashing in the clean warm water of your private pool - amidst swaying palms, surrounded by pines and towering oaks; and all bathed in the warm Florida sun!
At night, enjoy the peace and tranquility... stroll down our quiet street and along the path beside the 40-acre natural lake just two blocks away, as an amazing view of the stars turns silently overhead. Take a relaxing dip in the pool before jumping into the shower to rinse your cares away, before crawling into our massive king-size four-poster fantasy bed and snuggling in fine linens as the crickets lull you to sleep.
While right in the heart of all the action, this gem of a home is tucked away in a quiet, beautiful conservation community, allowing you to experience a little bit of the ‘real’ Florida. You won't find gates and security guards here - we don't need them! The area is quiet and safe! When you need to escape the hustle of the theme parks and wind down and cool off, this quality Florida home provides the perfect retreat!
This fully air-conditioned villa comfortably sleeps eight people in FOUR bedrooms, each with their own closet. (We don't use a pull-out sofa bed in order to increase our guest capacity). The master bedroom (King Double Pillow-Top Mattress bed) with its own bathroom and walk-in closet is located on one side of the house, while three double bedrooms (2 Twins, 1 Queen, 2 Twins) and a full bath are located on the other side of the home, providing additional privacy.
A quality, fully-equipped Kitchen with full dining area overlooks the lounge area (living room) and pool area. (When we say 'fully-equipped' we don't mean to typical vacation home standards [some have just a couple of pots and a few plates], we mean ready for you to prepare and enjoy full meals, including all of the dishware & cutlery you need, plus a full set of acrylics for use on the lanai!)
The lounge area opens out to the Lanai (covered deck) which overlooks our professionally-maintained, private pool completely covered by a screened enclosure to keep out insects and debris. The yard is landscaped to provide beauty and privacy from neighbours, and the large spaces in between homes in our area allows you to feel comfortable... not in a fishbowl, but not too alone either. A separate entrance gives access to the pool area from the master bath. Jump out of the pool and right into the shower to warm up and rinse off!
We've visited Florida as a family many times, and our son worked as a cast member at Epcot in Walt Disney World. We've set up our Florida home to make visiting central Florida fun, stress-free, and economical for families just like yours. When you stay at Pleasant Oak Villa, you get our personalized service as a family who knows the area, knows the parks, and knows what you need to have a fabulous Florida family vacation! Plus you get the professional service of skilled business owners with 30 years experience in customer service. We take great care of our guests!

We are Robert & Donna. We are a friendly, outgoing couple from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in Western Canada. We have been married for 34 years. Robert designs and builds new homes, and Donna is highly successful as a salesperson of travel trailers and huge fifth-wheels. Robert is a creative whiz with a strong design and writing orientation, and Donna is also 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 some of the nicest interior finishing in our entire subdivision. 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. We continue to upgrade and improve out properties, pouring everything they generate back into them in order to provide the best experience we can for our guests.
Robert purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Robert chose Loughman
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. In late 2011, while visiting our first Florida home (which has been a very successful vacation rental for us), we discovered this property was for sale. We were able to immediately purchase it, but knew it would take some work to bring it up to a standard suitable for our guests. After a year of work and renovations (not just decorating - we jack-hammered out floors, moved plumbing, tore out and built walls) we welcomed our first guests in December 2012. Since then we have been accumulating rave reviews! This particular villa is located at the edge of the development against some tropical forest on the back side of the home where the pool and lanai are situated. The closest rear neighbor is a full lot away, and we have put in privacy landscaping to beautify and separate the pool area from neighbours. This affords our guests privacy, and a wonderful environment, without being alone in the country.
What makes this Villa unique
Like our other property, there is an absolute joy that permeates this villa. Part of this is due to the fact that we have been able to have a hand in every part of the property's interior through the major renovation we undertook in 2012. Our lanai overlooks our enclosed pool area, which opens out to the rear yard, an open area featuring lawn and a large oak tree decorated with hanging spanish moss. 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 park 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 can then be delivered right to the villa (free of charge in some cases)! We take great care of our guests! Gorgeous NEW Interior! 4/2 Pool Home with Everything You Want 2 miles to Disney!

Lovely Villa - Great base for our Holiday
The villa is exactly as described, the kitchen is well equipped and the living area is a great place to relax after a long day at the theme parks. Robert was great to deal with and provided lots of helpful info about the villa/theme parks & surrounding area(s). There was a problem with the pool (completely out of Robert' control) however once reported Robert dealt with it immediately and this was resolved during our stay. The pool was obviously a great feature for fun and relaxation, and we particularly enjoyed the 2 player basket ball game in the garage our games soon became very competitive !
Thank you Robert for a fabulous stay at your lovely villa x
A Wonderful Place to Relax
We decided relatively late in the game to spend some time in Florida and weren't sure what type of properties would be available. Not being interested in the theme parks, we had one simple goal: find a property where we could spend some time just hanging out in the Florida sun. Fortunately, we came across this property and quickly booked it. And it was an amazing week thanks to the wonderful accommodations. The neighborhood is quiet and the backyard helps you feel more isolated than most rentals. Our kids made ample use of the pool and we grilled out nearly every evening. The comfort of the beds received thumbs up all around and the living room furniture was perfect for a relaxing movie night. The game room was also a hit with the pool table and basketball game. As we ate in almost every night, we were thrilled that the kitchen was well-stocked with an abundant supply of small appliances and dishware. Robert was super responsive to any questions that we had and it's obvious he takes great pride in the property. Thumbs up all around to our experience.
You were a great guest to deal with Mike! I really enjoyed our communications prior to booking. We were so glad to be able to host you and your family. We're glad that you enjoyed the home so much, and look forward to your return soon! Warm regards, Robert
Home and Location were Great !
Our trip to Orlando and staying at Pleasant Oak Villa was a very positive one. The home was well cleaned and furnished with all of the supplies, bedding, towels, etc. that we needed. We liked that it was secured with an alarm system that was easy to use, and also liked the quiet neighborhood! Television and appliances all worked well. We have stayed at both of Robert's properties and found the homes well maintained, in very good locations with quiet neighborhoods. We wouldn't hesitate to re-visit the area and stay in the homes.
Donna and I were so happy that you and Mary chose to stay with us again, Lyndon. It is always a treat to have guests return and stay at our other property. Of course you are welcome back anytime, and we look forward to that! Cheers!
Great Family rental! Close to Disney!
I really enjoyed our stay in the villa and have already recommended your properties to some friends who in the near future will be heading your way. Living space was comfortable, distance to Disney was great, the game room was a hit with our kids, we loved the pool and the Kitchen had everything we needed! I was nervous about renting a home at first but Robert is truly available and quick to fix things if anything happens and because of this I will definitely rent from him again. My family felt safe in the neighborhood and the distance to Disney is perfect!
Thank you so much for your kind words Nathalie. It was a pleasure to welcome you and your family. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon!
Simply the best experience that my family could have asked for!
This is our second year staying at one of Roberts properties and I would never even consider staying anywhere else in Orlando!
The home is in a fabulous neighbiorhood with great sidewalks and a beautiful pond with benches that are great for relaxing during a evening stroll. It's so quiet and peaceful, the only sound you hear is the wildlife! You always feel safe in the neighbiorhood. There is a publix, cvs, pizza, ect 5 minutes down the road!!
The home is gorgeous, clean and spacious! Enough room for everyone to spread out, have their own space, but also many "common areas" to spend time together (pool, game room) we enjoyed a relaxing swim every evening in the heated pool and spent many mornings in the game room before the parks.
The master bedroom mattress is so comfortable that I actually got the name off of it so we can purchase one for our home!
The kitchen is SO well stocked, you cannot need to ANYTHING at all! Everything is at your fingertips!
Robert is so organized and everything he says he does, on time and efficiently. Our flight was cancelled FOUR times due to the largest snow storm in Pennsylvania history and he worked with me every step of the way. He never made me feel like I was bothering him, he went out of his way to accommodate us and nobody will ever truly understand how much that meant to us, while we were buried under 3+++ feet of snow with no idea when we would be able to get out!
I recommend breezy and pleasant oaks to anyone who is visiting Orlando because in my opinion no accommodations can come close to what they have to offer!!!
Danielle, thank you so much for your comments. We were once again so happy to have you stay with us, and so glad you were able to experience our second home on this trip. It gives us a special thrill when we have guests stay at both of our properties. It reflects a vote of confidence on the guest's part, but it also gives us a 'second chance' to share the attention and detail we put into our Florida Vacation Rental Villas. We get to demonstrate again our commitment to creating a quality vacation rental experience for our guests, and there is no better feeling than doing that for a guest like you! It was my absolute pleasure to assist you in whatever way I could with accommodating the challenges presented by your constantly changing schedule. To be fair, good luck also played a role in my being able to assist as I did, but I am so glad that things worked out such that we could help you and your family. It really was my pleasure to help reduce your stress as much as possible, because we're here to help families have a great time on a Florida vacation! Happy returning guests are our goal. I'm sure you know how welcome you and your family are to return again! Best wishes! Robert
Nice villa in quiet neighbourhood.
The actual living space in the villa is quite small for the number of rooms available and the outside space around the pool is limited with only two loungers. It would have been nice to have used the garage for the car as it was so hot although I'm sure families could use the games facilities, if the weather was cooler.
The alarm system was stressful until we were proficient at using it. (Yes, we did set it off!).
As mentioned in another review the master bed is very high even though we had stools to hop up on to the bed!
Great fridge freezer with ice making machine. We had sun at the pool all day. Finally, villa was good and within easy reach of the Parks.
Thank you for your kind words about our property! It was a pleasure to have you as our guests.
Any owner who takes pride in their Vacation Rental home like we do wants everything to be perfect. We see a rating of less than five stars as sort of a failure to reach our goal, so will address your specific comments.
I’m surprised you found the living space ‘small’. It features large seating for six, the dining table seats 8, and should have been quite adequate for your party of just two people. Of the hundred families we’ve hosted to date, no one else has ever expressed this as a concern. Our photos show an accurate representation of the living area and invite prospective guests to review them in detail.
With two loungers presently on the pool deck, we do plan on adding more, but it should be noted that there’s currently seating for an additional 12 other people on the pool deck & lanai! We thought this generous for a property that sleeps eight people.
Arriving into a garage as hot or hotter than the outside summer air provides little benefit compared to the games area it has been transformed into. Please enjoy it next time. The basketball game is a real favourite!
The alarm system is one of many security features we have for protection of our property and guests. It functions just like any other quality system and is easy to use. For example, my 80-year-old mother has no problem with it, and doesn’t find it stressful at all! You don't have to use it, as the area is very safe, but we certainly prefer and recommend that guests do so.
Thank you for staying with us at Pleasant Oak Villa. We do hope to be able to welcome you back soon!
