About Nikki

My husband and our 2 children recently came down to Florida ourselves for the very first time, and fell in LOVE with Florida and all it has too offer... thus we decided it was a great opportunity to purchase this rental villa, and be able to offer other people like ourselves who dream of the same vacation of a lifetime!! We plan on using it for ourselves when we can, thus it will always be maintained as if we are living there!

Nikki purchased this house in 2013

Why Nikki chose Glenbrook Resort

After renting a different house ourselves, we loved the concept of the private house and pool after a long day in the parks vs a public hotel & pool with more screaming kids! The house we stayed in was a bit small, and much older than this one. It was quite a bit further to Disney than this one.

Thus we decided to start our house hunt! After searching through about 15 houses and 6 different communities.. GlenBrook came out on top every time!! Its a very well manicured community, with high standards, and an 'HOA', which means the neighbors also have to abide by the same rules and yard maintenance, so there is never a house that is badly run down, nor any safety issues, or the awful feeling of unwanted people lurking around! There is also a 24hr community camera surveillance system through out the streets, thus no need for the pesky gated entrances which can be a real pain when they wont open after a long day in the parks!! Another reason we picked this is a smaller community, and it has sidewalks for that morning stroll! The streets are also line with picturesque palm trees, which surprising enough... many other suburbs do not have!

We as the new owners cant wait to hear the feedback from our upcoming guests as they experience their trip of a lifetime!! We have also taken our experience and tweaked this villa to have the things we felt could have been improved on in the house we staying in! You should feel right at home while in our villa, and we encourage you to RELAX... just as we did!

What makes this house unique

What makes this specific house so unique, it is backing onto the beautiful lake in GlenBrook, along with the pool and deck being south facing allowing you to bask in the hot southern sun while the kids or others cool down in the pool!!

There are only a handful of houses on the lake in GlenBrook, and only a few others are as large as ours, we are the largest house in GlenBrook centered on the lake!

The villa is freshly painted with Farrow and Ball Paint, along with new bedding & linens, so not only will you enjoy the outside, but as well the inside. We have taken the opportunity to have some fun with this house, and have created theme rooms, take your pick from TOMMY BAHAMA, TOMMY HILFIGER, and SAFARI!? and of course for the children... MICKEY MOUSE!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We so enjoyed our stay at Villa Esquire. It was a holiday just staying at the house! This house is nicely decorated, clean and well equipped with everything you need for a stress free enjoyable vacation. Nikki was available should we have any questions or problems...which we didn't. The lake view out back was a real treat with daily wildlife visits right up to the pool screen while we were swimming. The house location is great as you are close to Disney attractions and easy driving distance to everywhere else! The clubhouse is a great place to hang out (especially with teenagers) too. We would highly recommend this rental location and are looking forward to our next trip!

Loved how comfortable this house was

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in this house for our Christmas vacation. It was very clean and the perfect size for our family of 9, most of who are teenagers and adults.

It is very close to Disney and not too far from Universal, which is where we went for two days. There were plenty of stores like Walmart, Walgreens, and plenty of fast food as well as local businesses which were great for a change of pace, to eat at. Devenney's Irish Pub was quite a surprise for us as the food was fantastic, and it was maybe a 5 minute drive from the house. It is a quiet neighborhood, and generally the whole area is not very busy or congested so we didn't have to fight traffic until we got closer to Disney. But even then it wasn't that bad.

Most of all though, we really enjoyed the heated pool, especially the hot tub. After 9-10 hours a day at Harry Potter World, we would come home and turn on the hot tub and just relax for hours. It was fantastic.

The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed to cook a Christmas dinner, as well as many other meals throughout the week. The washer and dryer came in handy many times as well as we went through a lot of towels as you can imagine with the pool and 9 people bathing. Plenty of bathrooms and beds.

Thanks Nikki for being very gracious and helpful.

Owner's Response: Thank you Keith. I am very pleased to hear you all enjoyed our home and surrounding community and fantastic amenities which are only a few minutes drive away. Indeed it's a nice change of pace at the end of a hectic day! As I always say, we are close enough, yet just far enough away from it all! I am extremely pleased to hear you utilized my kitchen & kitchenware & appliances for Christmas supper in the villa as I have taken the extra time to ensure it is specifically stocked for special occasions like that! Merry Christmas, and all the best in the New Year!

Beautiful spotless home, top amenities & location - everything for a perfect Disney family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home ticked all the boxes for an Aussie family looking for a home away from home for our extended family vacation at Disney World. Just far enough away from the theme parks to allow relaxation and recovery after the hectic pace of the theme parks, but just a stones throw in travel time. Nothing was missing; all the appliances, games room, pool and spa - just perfect. The home was safe with auto locks preventing child access to the pool area and a security system in the house itself. The decor was elegant, but not formal, and the lake offers a feeling of space while the pool gazebo offered protection from insects etc. The children (and adults!!) LOVED the warm pool and spa. There is a gorgeous community pool and sports centre a few steps down the road, but there was so much to do at the Villa, that we didn't even use it! This home allowed us to have the perfect vacation at the happiest place on earth. Many, many thanks to owner Nikki, who went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed and more. This property is over and above and we recommend it most highly. Karen, Tasmania, Australia.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words of appreciation! We were very adamant when buying this house.. it had to be south facing over a lake and close to Disney, the beaches, universal etc that the realtor laughed at us, especially when we said but far enough away you can escape all that craziness! As well it takes a lot of time, energy and money for an owner to ensure their home is as up to date with auto locks, security systems, new linens, and hands on with every guest as you state in the testimonial! I am truly happy to hear you all enjoyed and were so pleased with the house, the amenities' etc. Glad we could be a part of those memories you created while at "the happiest place on earth" ! All the best to you all.
