About Fay Bowen

We are an English couple who fell in love with America through the movies and finally fulfilled our dreams of visiting many years ago. We have been coming to Florida for over 20 years and know Orlando, Tampa and Miami as well as we know our home town in the UK.

Fay Bowen purchased this villa in 2002

Why Fay Bowen chose Glenbrook Resort

Having rented homes in Florida for many years we decided to buy one of our own. We bought this villa on the second day that the sales office was open and chose Glenbrook because of the high standard of construction. It is close enough to the main attractions to enable easy visits, but is also close enough to rural America to enjoy quieter pursuits.

Glenbrook is almost in the middle of Florida and so it is within easy reach of both the Gulf and Atlantic coasts for a day out. We are new to VRBO, but have many satisfied guests many of whom are now regular visitors. Please see our own villa website for over 30 unique reviews.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is our holiday home and we have equipped and decorated it so that we can be comfortable there when we visit. Many of the villas that we stayed at were very basic rental homes, but ours feels like somewhere that people live.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed in Fay's villa again this year to celebrate our birthdays and once again we were not disappointed. The villa is beautiful inside and out and is so comfortable to stay in. The owners have thought of everything you may need to enjoy your stay in Orlando. It is close to all the parks and there are loads of local shops and restaurant's to keep you busy and is in a nice a quiet location so you can spend the evening enjoying the pool. If you want to venture further out the owners have left loads of maps and brochures in the villa so you will always find something to do. Once again with give thanks to Fay and John for letting us use the villa and we will be coming here again soon.

Comfortable home with all the amenities

  • 4 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay over the 2017 Holiday week.

The house had plenty of room for our family to spread out and get comfortable.

The house was nicely decorated and furnished and had all the amenities you'd need.

Our only issues were minor- first we arrived after midnight due to late flight; the directions from the airport to the home were spot on, but then the combination of front door keypad lock AND the home alarm system code was frustrating trying to find where the numbers were in the email and welcome letter, then get to the alarm pad in the dark in an unfamiliar home- we ended up having the alarm go off and getting a call from the security company, which meant ANOTHER search for a password in the 20+ page welcome package. Not a very relaxing start to the stay...

Also the house was very nice, but the carpets could use a deep clean, the ceilings a fresh coat of paint and most of the decorations a dusting...

Finally we were frustrated with the pool heat. The weather was nice when we got there and the pool while not WARM was usable, then the weather got cold and the pool with it. Reading the info that was in their info packet we assumed that was just how it would be, but after 2 consecutive nights when all the neighbors were in their pools while ours was very cold we called and the management came out and said the breaker had gone off so heat wasn't running. The pool heated up some over the rest of our stay, but was never really comfortable to be in.

The management team was very responsive to all of our calls and did a good job addressing any issues.

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

I want to start off by saying the pictures online do not do this house any justice... This is a very cute home, clean and has everything dishes and utensil wise you could possibly think of! We also LOVED the added security of the alarm system while there and away. I would highly recommend this house to anyone!

Unfortunately we did not get to experience the pool but none the less I am sure it is wonderful as well!!

The owner of the property and property manager were both very responsive and professional!!

My family Had such an awesome stay and trip!

Thank you!

Overall was a nice experience

  • 4 of 5

Great stay but only thing was that there were water stains in the living room and kitchen. Might be some type of water damage. Other than that the house was perfect. Great kitchen space, great decor, and very spacious and comfortable
