Grown up Family Holiday

  • 4 of 5

This villa, which is in a quiet residential area, had 3 double rooms (1 in an annexe) plus an additional bedroom with 2 singles which we didn't use). This was ideal as we were a group of 6 adults.

The interior of the villa was beautiful and immaculately clean. We particularly liked the lounge area with it's lovely sofas, where we relaxed after long park days.

Location was perfect for park visitors with a drive of about 15 mins to Disney. There was a Publix 5 mins away which we used regularly,

On arrival we found that the kettle wasn't working. We called the management company and a replacement was delivered the next day - great service!

Well worth all the great reviews!

  • 5 of 5

Carole, thank you again for allowing us to rent your "Florida house" as my daughter called it. It was absolutely lovely, the kitchen was so clean and spacious (my daughter loved to dance in there!), and we all were so comfortable. We especially loved loved the cathedral ceilings! The pool temperature was perfect and the hot tub was a godsend after a hectic day at Disney parks.

The only suggestion I might make is to place handrails for the pool and especially the hot tub because it was difficult for our elderly parents to get in and out without assistance.

We look forward to visiting our "Florida house" again real soon!

A true home from home!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Thousand Oaks and everything was just as good as we remembered.

The villa is in a quiet suburban setting with great road connections to the I4 for Universal and Disney. There is a Publix 5 mins away for essentials and a good selection of restaurants and take-aways all within 10 mins drive.

The owner Carole has thought of every detail to make a holiday great, this is not an impersonal corporate villa, it feels like a real home from home with creature comforts for the whole family catered for from excellent wifi to a cupboard full of books and games for quite days in.

We wouldn't stay anywhere else, this villa is just perfect!

One word - SUPERB!

  • 5 of 5

Right from our initial contact with Carole through to the day we left to come home, the experience has been brilliant.

Two things strike you when you first arrive in the villa:

1- the space, and;

2 - the quality of the furnishing and fittings.

The villa is without doubt the best we have ever stopped in, and we've been coming to Florida for a few years now. Half of our party of 8 was made up folk in their late seventies and early eighties and the villa suited all of our needs. The sun-worshipers caught the early morning rays in lovely seating area next to the BBQ, they then moved to the rear of the house and were still soaking up the sunshine by the pool at 8pm.

Thousand Oaks is a lovely estate and ideally situated for Interstate 4, the #27 and general access to Disney/Universal and the #192. Local shopping is available too at Champions Gate which is only minutes away by car. Daytona Beach was just over an hours drive away and Winter Haven is only 25 minutes down the road.

We all had a great time during our 3-week stay, and Carole's villa played a huge part in making this a grand family holiday.

Excellent Orlando rental

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed the stay and the trip. Everything about the house was perfect!

The owner's attention to detail is amazing when it came to what a family would need for a comfortable week long stay. We also spent some good pool time.

Great stay and thanks. We will certainly recommend and come back again.

wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

After clear, precise instructions from Carole, the owner, we arrived at the Villa. Everything was as we expected. It is set in a lovely neighbourhood, but close enough to get to all the parks. Kennedy Space Centre, Seaworld, and Busch Gardens were also easy to get too, Kennedy and Busch Gardens taking roughly an hour to reach.

It was lovely to come back after the hustle and bustle of the parks to relax in the lovely pool, and sit out and relax in the pool area. It was nice to eat in some nights and everything that you needed in the kitchen, was provided. We wanted for nothing. A Pubix was about 5 minutes away by car.

The bedrooms were very comfortable, with amble storage space, especially in the master bedroom, with its walk in wardrobe. It was useful to have the "annex" attached, which provided some privacy for the other guests.

We would not hesitate to recommend this super villa, and hope that we can return again to wallow in its luxuries, and enjoy all it has to offer.
