About the property

Villa Home - 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) - 3.5 Baths - (Sleeps 8-10)

How about coming home to a Luxury Executive Villa after a tiring day at the theme parks, or after a round of golf on one of the many championship golf courses in the area, or maybe picking up your latest pair of Nike trainers or Levis at the shopping mall? Dining Al Fresco on your own extended deck eating what you want when you want to, no waiting in line at the restaurant. Or maybe relaxing with a book in your own home that has 2600 square feet of space as opposed to a small hotel room where you have to sit on the end of the bed. And when you are eventually ready for bed, having four separate bedrooms with three bathrooms to choose from. Two en-suite Master Suites and two twin bedrooms with separate third bathroom in between, absolutely ideal for two families to share and still have enough space to move or even one family that wish to take grandparents.

South Palms has been professionally furnished to the highest standards by a senior interior design consultant from one of central Florida's leading company's. As well as all that, South Palms villa is a two-story home which has many optional extras that we have personally selected in the Family Room, Formal Living Room, Formal Dining Room, Gourmet Kitchen, and Garage with some great 'additions' to keep everyone occupied. *** Become one of our many extremely satisfied guests and make South Palms Villa your choice of home away from home on your next Orlando vacation. But don't take our word for it, visit the 'GUEST REVIEWS' page on our website and see what they have to say. You'll also find many additional 'genuine' photographs on the website which we've taken around the home and you'll see exactly what you get when you open the front door and walk into the property for the first time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our 1st time in Florida during the winter. We had a fantastic time. Thank you so much John & Susan for letting us use your beautiful home on our 5th visit to Florida. It was by far the best place we have stayed to date, we hope to be back some day.

Wonderful Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the South Palms Villa for 5 days in June 2009. We first noticed that the homes in The Retreat were very close together, as is usual in most subdivisions. But once we made our way out back, you don't have to worry about lack of privacy. The neighbors on the left side are situated at an angle away from you, and the neighbors on the right have a privacy fence. There is a slight incline to the backyard that keeps the back neighbors private as well. The inside of the home was just as described. No surprises there. Absolutely gorgeous. The master bedroom is huge and travelling with two teenage girls, having a bathroom for everyone was wonderful! The great room and kitchen area is an open concept with plenty of space to relax. Not that you will be spending much time there, as the brilliant pool and spa is definately the focal point of the home. We had a great time in the home. It was very well kept and clean. The property manager arrived the next morning to "Meet and Greet" us which was a nice relief so that we didn't have to rush out to finish any business at the company's location. The home's location is right off of US27, and as you leave Legacy Park, turn left and you are less than 5 minutes to 192, and turn right and you are about 5 minutes to I-4. Very close to Disney and SeaWorld and plenty of resturants and shops located close by. The only negative I could say, and this isn't really even a negative, would be that the description shows another TV in one of the twin rooms which wasn't there. And there were no extras such as toilet paper, paper towels, dish detergent, garbage bags. We did purchase some and left for the next guests. Anything else you may need is already there in the home...all kitchen ware, bath towels, and even beach towels for the pool. John and Susan were very easy to communicate with via email and answered any questions we had promptly. We were very pleased with our stay at South Palms Villa and will definately return for our next trip to Central Florida.

Owner's Response: We would just like to point out that there was a problem with the tv in the twin room and unfortunately we were unable to replace it for this guests stay. It has now been replaced. With regards the toilet paper etc. Toliet paper is provided in all bathrooms, also a few dishwasher tablets and a couple of garbage bags. However, as this is a self catering accommodation there is only enough to last the first few days of your stay. We ourselves have previously stayed in other self catering accommodation in the area and have found that this is the norm.

I've stayed at a few other vacation rentals in the past, and they were fine, but this is the first one that I would describe as perfect. The house was spotlessly clean. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything you could need to cook. The furniture was very comfortable. The owner provided excellent communication before, during, and after the stay, including the most detailed driving directions from the airport that I have ever seen. When we had a couple of minor issues arise, the local property manager was very quick to resolve them for us. The house is a short drive away from several grocery stores and takeaway restaurants, so supplies and meals were easy to come by. The neighborhood was upscale and peaceful. I hope we get the chance to stay again soon.

The perfect home for an Orlando holiday

  • 5 of 5

John and Susan's beautiful home is the perfect setting for a stay in Orlando. With ample space, beautiful decor, a stunning pool and jacuzzi, it really does have everything you will need.

Communication was excellent and the management company are on hand should you need anything while you're there.

We're already looking forward to going back!

Very convenient for a Disney vacation

The place was clean, well kept, with plenty of space, an adequate pool, and plenty of bathrooms and showers. A complimentary bottle of wine was a nice touch.

A lovely spaceous family size home

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at South Palms twice and will do so again in the future I'm sure. This home has everything we needed with the children including a fabulous pool and hot tub, and it's situated in a great area close to all the theme parks and shopping malls. The manager Linda is also great and at hand for any needs may have. I'd definitely recommend staying here and if you do, I know you'll have a great time. Happy holidays!
