COMMENTS FROM GUESTS STAYING AT OUR HOUSE


2014

The villa was lovely.  It suited us perfectly – comfortable, spacious, well-equipped and a relaxing atmosphere.  Lots of storage space meant that we could unpack properly instead of living out of a suitcase.  The girls particularly loved the swimming pool and the snooker table.  We will happily recommend it to anyone who is heading to Florida.  It made the holiday much more enjoyable than staying in a hotel.

October 23 – November 6, 2014 - Ceri and family, UK

 

We did have some problems with ants getting inside, despite being careful about food, crumbs etc.  Ant spray did help!  However, this villa is perfect for a family holiday.  It is in a prime location for all parks and attractions.  Thank you.   August 2014 - The Sumner family

Owners’ note:  Obviously we are sorry this family experienced problems with ants, but, being a sub-tropical climate, these can be a problem.  So glad the ant spray helped.

 

Found our bed uncomfortable, but, having reported it, a new bed was supplied. Much better now.  June 21, 2014 - Maria Belcher

Owners note:  During her stay in the villa, this guest had some issues with one of the beds.  However, once our management company was made aware of the problem, this was resolved.

 

Villa is spacious with pleasant décor.  Reasonable distance to the parks.   Pool cold.
June 3, 2014 - The Bhatt Family, UK

Note from owners:  Again, pool heating costs extra and is not normally needed during the summer months.

 

This is our 9th time out here in Florida and this villa was quite impressive.  On the whole a great villa, so thank you.  Just wish the pool had been warmer.         May, 18, 2014   The Windsor Family

Note from owners:  These guests declined pool heating, but wished afterwards that they had paid for it.

 

Thanks for another wonderful holiday.  Sad to be leaving – the time has flown. 
April 25, 2014 - Janice & David Bugg, UK

 

Another amazing holiday in your lovely villa.  The kids would have happily spent the whole 3 weeks in the pool and, after all this time, we are still sad to be going home!

April, 2014 - The James Family from England

 

Thank you for the use of your great villa.  It was nice to have a home away fom home instead of a hotel room!  The hot tub was very good, as some of us ‘old farts’ have joint issues, so a soak at the end of the long days was appreciated!  However one of the jets in the hot tub was not working.
March 22-27, 2014 - The Coles and Heenans, BC, Canada

Note from owners:  This has now been fixed.

 

We had a fantastic stay at your Florida home.  It was great having two families spend the week together.  The weather was much nicer, compared to back home.  The girls wanted to spend as much time as possible in the pool.  The adults loved relaxing at the house.  The pool temperature was fantastic (heated). 
Hope to be back soon!!!

March 5-12, 2014 - The Chapman's from Toronto, Canda

 

Hi Chris & John. Denise, Noel and the boys had a wonderful vacation. In spite of the cool weather this past week, the boys were in the pool every day . Thanks so much for letting us use your Villa.   Art

January 11-25, 2014 - The Helm Family, Canada

We had an absolutely fabulous time during our stay here.  The boys used the pool almost every day and the hot tub was fantastic after a long day at a theme park.  Staying in such a spacious villa gave the boys their own space – which cut down on the arguments.  The boys are already planning their next vacation!  Thanks for sharing your lovely villa.  It’s been one our best family vacations!!

January 11-25, 2014 – Denise, Noel, Nicholas and Rhyan, Ontario

 


2013

The following two comments were sent via email, firstly when the family were actually in Florida and the second when they had returned home:

Hello from Vizcay Way. We arrived late last night and WOW you have a wonderful spot! Thanks so much, we promise to treat the home gently. My in-laws love it as it is their first trip south and what a great first impression. Take care and thanks again we will recommend you guys for sure.

Chris and John, Once again we had a wonderful time at your home in Florida. Our teenage kids loved it. Our eldest daughter, Alyssa, wrote her feelings for the place in your visitor log book which we all echoed. My wife's parents, who have never seen a palm tree were very impressed with the home and surrounding area not to mention the very decent spring weather. Take a look at Canada's weather and you can imagine how great that Florida sun felt! The pool warmth was perfect and we used that cover every moment we were not in it. Everything else worked as well. We will return if you are still in the market. Take care and thanks for making this a positive vacation memory for the family.

 

27 Dec 2013 – 4 January 2014 – The Macgregor Clan


19 Oct - 2 Nov, 2013 - Nev and Laura, Bristol, UK We had a great time in Florida. The villa was lovely and the pictures on the web site don't do it justice. The only negative was that Laura cut her hand and couldn't find a First Aid Kit for a plaster. But this was the only negative.

(Owners' note - We have now placed a small first aid kit in the kitchen area.)


Thanks for letting us stay in your home. It is so big and so warm. We all appreciate your kindness. I loved exploring the parks and I'm sure that we all did. We are all exhausted after exploring the parks and all that walking has really tired our feet out. Everyone has enjoyed the pool. We played in it every morning and every night. Thanks again. Hope we come again because I really enjoyed it.

Also from Nicole (aged 7) - I like the home because we had lots of fun in the pool and the home was big and nice.

(Owners' note - We love the messages left by the children. Many thanks.)

19 October, 2013 - Chantelle (aged 9) from Scotland


Great time. Will definitely come back again. Kids loved the pool. Location fantastic. House set up perfect for two families. October 4-11, 2013 - Dan and Sheridan, Shawn and Rob

We have just spent 11 nights here and we have really enjoyed it. Had a great time. Sad to leave - back to the 'sunny' UK - ha! ha!  

19-30 September 2013 – Estelle


14 September 2013 – Phil We loved Florida and enjoyed all the parks and facilities.

Great Stay - nice house. In the pool almost every day. Had a fabulous time.

29 August 2013 - Ben and Langley


Thanks for everything. Very comfortable. 30 July - 13 August, 2013 - The Netherton Family and Guests

We had a fantastic two weeks at the villa. So well equipped, everything nearby. Thank you.  

13-27 July, 2013 - The Williams, Winscombe, UK


24 June - 11 July, 2013 - Cromacks and Lambs (via Hotel Beds USA) Had a fantastic holiday staying in your villa. Great location for getting everywhere. The kids loved the pool and the adults the spa.

  We had a lovely holiday and really enjoyed staying in your villa. Home from home with no complaints whatsoever. We found a lovely place to eat nearby, called 'Manny's' - about 10-15 minute drive. Also 'Chillis' is a must too. Did have some problems with bugs in the pool once or twice - other than that, a perfect stay. Many thanks.

Owners' Comment - the pool/patio area is enclosed with a mesh lanai, but it is essential to make sure the gates at either end are closed properly to keep out any bugs, which can be a problem in the hot weather

June 10-24, 2013 - Wood/Stokoe family (via Hotel Beds USA)


It felt like home from home on arrival. Kids loved the pool. Easy route to attractions. Great to have washing machine and tumble dryer. Lots of thought put in by owners of things needed. Fantastic! May 22nd-June 5th, 2013 - McNama, Bristol, UK (via Florida Travel Network)

Spacious large home, clean and well presented. Good location on I-4 for parks, nice quiet neighbourhood. First time to US, so loved the friendly locals.

We were disappointed with pool temperature. We chose not to pay for pool heating as we thought it may be okay as the weather was in the high 80s - we were surprised it didn't heat up. Having said that, we had a great time!

Note from Owners: Pool heating is recommended from October until May. Although the days may be hot, it often cools down at night and therefore the water temperature will drop. The cost of pool heating reflects the cost of the electricity needed to run it, but, with the help of the solar cover, it should considerably increase the warmth of the pool.

 

March 28th - April 4th, 2013 - The Barrett Family, Surrey, UK


February 22 - March 1st, The Berry Family from Ontario, Canada Chris and John: You must look forward to coming to such a beautiful home! Thank you for the opportunity we have this week to be here - it is spacious and inviting as soon as we opened the front door! The pool has been warm each day and the weather beautiful! We appreciate the management company looking after a couple of things that needed to be done - minor repairs - in a timely manner. We are having a great vacation! To come back each day to your villa is just like coming home! Thank you again!! We are loving it. We have also enjoyed some shopping at the mall that is so close and easy to get to. At the end of this week, it will be difficult to return to winter and work again!

The villa was everything we had hoped for. Not over the top elegant but was as advertised - clean, well laid out, and very accessible as one of our party had mobility issues.

Everything was functional but for one thing and it was corrected immediately. Very central to attractions and easy to find. We enjoyed the screened in lanai and pool.

Thank you again for your hospitality in opening up your home as a place where guests can feel so at home, while away from home. We appreciated it so much.

This is from one of the children: Hi Chris and John: You have a very nice home here in Florida. It is very spacious and I would come back again, Matthew Berry.


Here for a week of golf. The weather was cold so our use of the pool was limited, but was excellent when we could. Beautiful house. Really made our holiday. Thank you!

We rented this lovely villa for a week and loved every minute of it. A beautiful home and very well situated to all the excellent golf courses we played. Plus a heated pool!! Absolute bonus for those tired muscles at the end of a hard day on the course.

February 13-17, 2013 - Peter Henson, Gord Kirkwood, Mike Taylor, Geoff Gibson


2012

Nice villa. Suggest you do something different whilst in Florida eg Sky Dive. Florida still a truly magical place.  

December, 2012 - The Jackson Family, London, UK


Thank you for letting us stay here for the week. The kids loved the pool. The heat was fine with the cover. The kids liked having their own room. The location was great, being so close to route 4 was a big key to the vacation. We went to the Pirates and Medieval Times dinner shows and kids loved them.

They also loved Legoland, which is about half an hour down the Route 27. We recommend doing it over 2 days, though, as there is so much there you won't do it in the time as it closes early. We will try to come back here again. Thank you for adding to our vacation

Nov 20-27, 2012 - Brooke family from Massachusetts

This is our second visit to your lovely villa and it is just as good as when we came 3 years ago. It is like home from home and we feel very comfortable here. We have had a fantastic and varied holiday, mixing Theme Parks with sightseeing (not to mention the superb restaurants we have visited). Roll on the next time. Memories are made of this!!

Janice and David, Beckington, England, Nov 4-18, 2012


Andrew, Alison and Tara, Bristol, England, October 13 - Nov 3, 2012 Thank you for letting us stay in your amazing villa. We really enjoyed our time here. It was in a great location and has great supplies to make it feel like a home away from home. We had a wonderful stay here and will definitely be staying here again.

The villa is fantastic and made a great holiday. We've stayed in a Disney hotel before and this time was much better - facilities, space, privacy, pool. The only problem we see is our next holiday not meeting such a high standard!  

Mark, Kate & Alex, England, August 2012


Had an amazing two weeks. Thank you! Leah, Norman, Birmingham, UK, July 24-August 8, 2012

A huge 'thank you' for allowing us to stay in this beautiful home. We mean this with sincere compliments when we say that the photos on your website do not do the villa true justice. We have had a really fab and special time in Orlando, seen and done so much these last 3 weeks. We have felt that it has been invaluable to come back from a busy day at the parks and stay in the villa and relax. It has provided us with a great haven. Thank you so much Chris and John. Very sad to be leaving, but have big hopes to return in the future.

Michelle & Barry, Bristol, England, July 2-23, 2012


Jayne, Lee, Rose and Jordan, Yate, UK, June 2-16, 2012 Had a fabulous holiday. Villa was wonderful, as was the pool - swimming every day. Visited all Disney Parks. Need to return to do others! Thank goodness for emergency lighting - electricity out for 3 hours one evening when street hit by lightening. Thanks for letting us use your lovely villa.

Thank you for a great home from home. Everything we need for children is here. Thomas and Sophie said the best part is the swimming pool. Thomas now swimming lengths of pool.  

Sharon, Mike, Thomas and Sophie, Bristol, England, April 2012


This was our second visit to the villa and we had a great stay. The pool was wonderful and the house very comfortable. A great vacation! Dale, Catherine, Joe & Jane, Pennsylvania, March 2012

We had a wonderful holiday and the house was great. The floor plan was perfect and your home is very well equipped. Many thanks for the 'solar blanket' - the pool was much warmer and great to use during the day, but never got above tepid in the evening. Thanks again for sharing your wonderful villa. It was a great home away from home.

Sandra & Larry, Nova Scotia, Canada and Ian & Wendy, Ontario, Canada, March 2, 2012


Gary, Joni, Pat, Annette, Ron and Shirley, Illinois, USA, Feb 2012

The villa was wonderful for our visit. Plenty of room. We all loved the walk-in showers. Pool and hot tub not warm enough to use.

(Owners' note: We have since purchased a solar cover for the pool.)

 

The villa was wonderful for our visit, giving our kids plenty of room to roam. The pool was used almost every day! We were comfortable for a family Christmas and New Year's with extra family staying overnight, and the proximity to shopping is fantastic! It was so nice to be able to do our own laundry and the big soaker tubs were great too. Thank you so much and we hope we will be able to use your great villa again.  

The Helm family, Alberta, Canada, Dec 19, 2011 - Jan 4, 2012


2011

"Our second visit has not disappointed. In fact, it was even better! We have been to Epcot for the second time. Flights of Fantasy, which is just down the road, is well worth a visit. We also took a coach trip down to Miami, a long day but very enjoyable. It is also nice having a pool and being able to swim every day, plus having good night’s rest. I am counting the days to when, if I am lucky enough, I can come again. There is so much more I would like to visit and do." Andrew & Jill, Taunton, UK, 12-26 Nov, 2011

Owners’ Follow-up Comments:
We stayed in our villa at the end of November. Thank you for all your kind comments throughout 2011. We can certainly recommend staying late November/December, as everywhere is so festive, yet the weather is still pleasantly warm. This is normally a quiet time for bookings, so it is perfect to choose as your run up to Christmas. You can find lots of bargains in the numerous Malls, so Christmas shopping is a must! Best of all, the Theme Parks really pull out all the stops to bring you Christmas in the sunshine!
 

Oct 27 - Nov 9 
James, Nic, Aaron, Caitlin, Finley & Noah, Bristol, UK
This is our third time staying in your fantastic villa. As with the previous times, it was brilliant! Hopefully this won't be our last time!!!

Beautiful villa. Extra amenities a bonus. Lovely holiday. Found files of information an asset. We had a fab time and would definitely return. Many thanks.  

October 9-23 - Lesley, Mal, David, Jen and Noel, Alex and Josh, Carlisle, Cumbria, England


Had a lovely holiday in this great villa. The pool was very handy on hot days. Hope to return soon. September 2-16 
Rona, Sam and Straun, Aberdeen, Scotland

Thanks - a great 3 weeks. Good location for all. Loved the pool table - great idea which gave us all a lot of fun. We saw the last shuttle go up and heard the sonic boom as it flew over to land. That was one of those 'tick off the list of life' things to do.

July 1-22 - David, June and Luke, Stephen, Ann and Matthew, Southampton, UK


May 20 - June 3 
Lewis, Gemma, Ethan & Isla, Alan and Jan, Northumberland, UK
We very much enjoyed staying in your villa. It is peaceful, quiet location and was the perfect contrast to the hustle and bustle of the parks. Five year old Ethan especially loved the pool and is very upset to be going home. (Ethan himself wrote "Love the pool xx)

We had a wonderful time staying at your villa. It is very comfortable and well-equipped. Temperatures in the 90s each day made the pool very popular. Easy access to all the attractions. We would definitely return here and tell our friends. (Postscript: Dale & Catherine have already booked for Spring 2012!)  

May 9-16 - Dale & Catherine , Joe and Jane, Johnsonburg, PA


This is our second stay in this wonderful villa and it felt like home! After our fun filled days at the parks, it was lovely to come back and have a BBQ, beer and a dip in the pool. Last time we were here, our son learnt to swim in the pool, this time it was our daughter's turn. If the children weren't in the pool, they were playing it! (In the garage.) We can't wait to come back - already making our plans!! Sarah, Mark, Danny, Sophie, from Bristol, England - April 2011

  We had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful home. It was well-equipped, clean and comfortable. The pool was beautiful. The villa is located so the Florida attractions are easily accessible. The neighborhood is quiet and very well kept. We would definitely stay here again.

Dale & Catherine Bliss, Pennsylvania, US – 9-16 May 2011


Foster and family – 9-17 April 2011 We very much enjoyed our stay at the villa. This year we were able to lounge around more and enjoy the pool/spa. It was very relaxing. We also enjoyed a couple of the area parks along with a trip to Ocala and Daytona Beach. We thank you for your recommendations for Manny's Chop House. It was excellent and we didn't wait very long. We are already looking ahead to next year and hope to make it an annual trip.

This was definitely an amazing place to stay. It is 'home away from home'. The corner nook was a great place for Emma to colour, watch her portable DVD etc. We loved the pool/spa! We spent a lot of time there. Your home is a nice distance from parks/attractions. While here, we 'skyped' home - our families agreed that it was beautiful and that our next trip to Florida we would book again. Many thanks!! Dan, Natalie & Emma.  

April 2 - 9, 2011 - the Cabrals, Ontario, Canada


John and Chris - your villa was perfect for our family. We made good use of the pool and hot tub. It was a great location for seeing Disney and Universal. We would definitely come back again, soon. March 17-24, 2011 - The Chapmans, Wilkins and Simpson Family, Ontario, Canada

  What a wonderful stay we had in your lovely villa! Everything was clean and in good order when we arrived, we had no issues at all. We arrived to the smell of orange blossoms from the nearby groves, and enjoyed warm, sunny days throughout our stay. 
We had a really great family time. We will have lots of great memories. Thanks again for the opportunity to enjoy your villa. We would be very interested in returning sometime in the future. 
John and Chris - you have a lovely villa, best we have rented in Florida. We could not have asked for a better time. Thank you!

March 10-17 2011 - The Tomlinson Family, Pocoma Summit, PA, USA


March 3-10 2011 - the Newell family, Quispamsis, NB, Canada Our family enjoyed staying at your home very much. We found it to be very well equipped with all that we needed. Very spacious! We all LOVED the pool and our eldest son actually learned how to swim without his life-jacket! We will surely stay here again upon our next visit. Thanks.

Thanks for the use of your wonderful home. It is one of the most spacious and well-equipped homes we have ever stayed at. The personal touches throughout reflect how often you stay here yourselves. We did stay over a bit of a cold snap and never got to use the pool. However, we loved the home, great location and very friendly neighbourhood. We walked every morning and talked to many of the locals. Would love to come back and stay again. Many thanks!  

Jan 2011 - Dan and Betty Zehr & family


2010

Dec 23, 2010 - Ashworth-Leach Family Had a great time in your villa. Loved the big telly in the lounge! The en-suites were beautiful and spacious. Enjoyed the Games Room. Didn't really use the pool - too chilly! Had a great time in your beautiful villa. An amazing two weeks! Would love to come back again! Thanks.

Thanks for the wonderful vacation. Your home is gorgeous.  

16-20 November 2010 Karen Fauble and Mary Herweyer, Michigan, USA


1st November 2010 Keira Fox I love the house! It is so spacious. The swimming pool is nice and heated. There are toilets near every room! We spotted some lizards. We also noticed a strange bug and an armadillo! I also like looking out at the grass and trees, and I don't feel locked up inside! We didn't expect such a big TV! We hear you're from Britain - so are we! When you walk in here it is just one big room! Also the ping-pong and pool table are brilliant. I don't want to go home!

  Our first visit to Florida and couldn't think of a better place to stay. Thank you for a fantastic stay at your villa. The kids loved the pool and couldn't ait to get in every evening. We made great use of the pushchair too. This was definitely needed for a 3-year old in the parks! I want this villa! We will be back!

NOW FROM THE KIDS!

Mollie McKelvie
I'm so loving the villa - it's so spacious and homely. If the pool wasn't heated I wouldn't have got in, but it was! For my friend's birthday we were going to Sea World but my friend wanted to stay in the villa and play in the pool! In the end we did go because we had already paid for the tickets.

October 2010 The Corssen Family; Leicestershire, England


4-18 September 2010 The Cook Family and Mike; UK Beautiful villa, loads of fun in the pool. Easy access to all places. Would certainly recommend to others and would love to return again. Thank you.

We had a fabulous stay in your beautiful villa! Our only regret is that we didn't spend more time here. The home was so spacious that even with 4 adults and 4 children (ages 5-11) we never felt cramped or crowded. If we ever plan a trip here again, this will be the place to stay! I will also be recommending it to friends and family. Thanks for a wonderful stay!  

19-25 July, 2010 Steve, Laura, Joshua, Caleb, Daniel & Miriam; Arkansas, USA
Sherrill & Suzanne; Mississippi, USA


Had such a wonderful time here. Kept very busy but managed lots of pool time. Thanks so much! 10-17 July, 2010 Kris, Beth, Audrey, Erica and Emily, Colorado, USA

Good break for all of us. Nice villa and the pool was fantastic for the kids. Thanks!

28 June - 2 July, 2010 Tracy, Dai, Lise, Mads, Eskil, Tore; Norway


11 May - 1 June 2010 Tasha, Selena, Stuart, Ray and Chrissy; Manchester, UK Beautiful villa with all the amenities we needed. Pool and spa were perfect to relax in after busy days at parks. Also, Chris & John, the villa's owners, were extremely helpful with every aspect of our holiday. They were always willing to answer our questions and give us advice. A truly lovely couple. Will definitely be coming back to this villa. Amazing holiday - just sad to leave.

We all really liked the villa. It was modern & spacious & the pool area was great. My 2 young daughters especially loved the pool & were in it at every opportunity. The villa was in a good location, a nice residential area within easy reach of the supermarkets, restaurants & of course the theme parks. We also commented that you had a good plot, as although you have neighbours either side, there is no one overlooking the villa from the rear, you look out over the 'scrubland.' We have recommended it to friends & family, & we will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Florida!

 

Jeanette and Wayne, Stoke-on-Trent, UK - 7-24 June 2010

Tasha, Manchester, UK

Our holiday has been amazing. Your villa is beautiful and we are already planning our next trip and would love to come back here. Thanks again for everything.


I just wanted to thank you again for the help with renting the villa. We really enjoyed our stay here in your beautiful home. We had the BEST vacation!! The villa is located in such a great place with easy access to pretty much everything. We enjoyed the pool and spa so much! I think the kids were in it more than anyone. We were able to enjoy 5 of the near by theme parks during our stay which made it busy but the convenient location was great making it easy to come back earlier enough in the evening to relax and enjoy the villa too!! This was our first real family vacation and will be unforgettable for all of us. We are already thinking about next year.

9-17 April 2010 - Jeremy, Jenn, Craig, Erica and families, Michegan, USA

Lovely place. We had a terrific time. Area is nice and convenient and everyone loved the pool table.


 

We had a very nice time. Great break from the snow.

29 January - 1st March 2010  - Bill & Su, Ontario Canada


Thank you for the stay. Nice and spacious house. Weather too cold to use the pool as Florida experiencing an unusually cold winter - 3-10 degrees C. But we slept well and had a nice time nevertheless.

3 January - 8 January 2010

Thank you for the wonderful stay. Your home is beautiful. It served our family vacation ie location and relaxing, fine. We would definitely recommend your home of any of our friends and we plan to return in 2011. Everything was excellent. Neighbours are fantastic.

We had a great time in your lovely home. So much space and so warm and comfortable. Florida weather not good, so couldn't use your wonderful pool and spa. Oh, well, can't have the best of everything.

First visit to America, first visit to Florida, and what an experience!! Something to keep us smiling around every corner. We did theme parks sprinkled with other Floridian attractions - but all this enjoyment has been topped by the spacious, comfortable and homely villa. A joy to return to each evening, fantastic to enjoy breakfast around the pool. Thank you Chris & John, we have had an unforgettable holiday here. Can't wait to return with our children and grandchildren to enjoy this fantastic place.

7-21 November 2009, Elaine & Reg, Bristol,UK

 

This is not our first visit to Florida but it is certainly the best villa so far. We have really enjoyed the holiday and the villa has provided us plenty of space for all. We had 6 adults in our party. The pool and hot tub were wonderful and enjoyed by all. We will recommend your villa to anyone we hear of planning to holiday in Florida. Thanks!

3 - 23 October 2009, Michael & Heather Davidson, Stonehaven, Scotland


My first trip to America. We are both very glad we had the chance to stay in your villa. It is beautiful and very clean. If we come back again we will hopefully come and stay here again. Thanks again.

4-17 October 2009, Derek & Lisa, Stonehaven, Scotland

 

This was our second visit to the villa and we loved it just as much as the first. Still perfect for us with our growing family! Will definitely be coming back for a 3rd time!!!

End September, James, Nichola, Aaron, Caitlin and Finley, Bristol, UK


Thank you! We have had a brilliant time and wish we could stay longer! The kids loved the pool and after a day at Disney it was perfect!

17-29 September, James, Anouska, Jessica, Phoebe and Amber, Pembs, Wales, UK

 

We were not prepared for such a lovely villa! We have had two glorious weeks of sun and fun. The villa is well-equipped and very comfortable in a perfect location. Ingredients for a perfect day are: sat on a patio watching the sunrise, followed by a hard day's sightseeing, finishing with a swim in the 'heated' pool and a glass of wine in the hot tub. Thank you to Christine and John - we will be back. (Two locations which should be a must for anyone are 'Silver Springs' and 'Mount Dora'.)

2-16 September 2009, Wendy & Rob, Washington DC, and Wendy, Wootton Bassett, UK


Loved the house and pool. Hope more Danish tourists will visit in the future.

17-27 August 2009, Mortensen, Denmark

 

Great villa! Peaceful and 'warm' pool and tub. A home from home - what more can I say. A big thanks for allowing us to stay at your second home - a great vacation.

17 July - 14 August 2009, Bryn and Chris, Liverpool, UK


Great villa! Makes me feel like second home in here. I love swimming pool, which I can pop out for a swim in any time. I shall miss being here and may consider coming back in the future. Thank you for your wonderful villa!

14-22 July 2009, William, Malvern, UK

 

Have had an enjoyable holiday, love swimming pool, able to relax and enjoyed the sunshine. Went to see Busch Gardens and Sea World - very good and not forgetting Epcot and the fireworks - GREAT. Villa is very nice and more space than I knew what to do with!

7-31 July 2009, Ann, St Helens, UK


Great villa - a peaceful retreat from the parks. Having stayed at Disney and I-Drive hotels, definitely the better way to relax and enjoy Orlando. Everything worked as it should, although if you can figure out which light switch turns on which light you're a cleverer person than me (Dad). Best wishes to all who stay here.

28 June - 13 July 2009, Peter, Janine, Erin and Ronie, Norfolk, UK

 

We all had a wonderful vacation! Your villa is so beautiful. Our husbands leanred how to swim in the beautiful pool and at night we would relax in the spa. The children enjoyed every minute in the pool. Excellent location! Thanks for the vacation!!!

What a great villa and pool. We all felt completely at home here. 'Alligators Unlimited' a must - fantastic trips. We did the 3 hours and breakfast. Didn't want to finish - showed you the real Florida.

What a lovely villa! The pool was great and Noel learnt to dive! Fabulous weather and good access to Disney World. A very memorable holiday for all of us. It would be a dream to return. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to share your holiday home.

The house was great. Location to attractions and family was perfect for us. Loved the spacious rooms and multiple baths. Should we come back to Florida, we'll definitely look to come here.

We really enjoyed our stay in Florida. The weather was very nice. The kids enjoyed the pool. Your house is very beautiful and we would recommend your house to our friends.

Brown Family, Michigan, 27 March - 4th April 2009


LOVED the house!! It was unanimous that the house itself was the best part of our vacation. We went to two theme parks and a beach thanks to the location of the villa. There was plenty of space and I particularly loved having two master suites. This was my first 'family' holiday with my daughter and such a great experience that I'd like to make this an annual experience! Will definitely recommend!!

We had a wonderful time in Florida. The weather was beautiful (80s all week). Although the theme parks were a lot of fun, we really enjoyed coming home to relax in the pool. We would definitely consider staying in your CLEAN and spacious home again. Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely villa.

We had a wonderful time in Florida! Enjoyed the pool when the weather got warmer - first few days were only 55 degrees F! It has been a great week for the kids (21 and 24 year old) who left on the 9th. We appreciated all the commodity of the house. We will remember this holiday in sunny Florida.

Just what the doctor ordered. We've all had a great time and now need to go home for a rest! Villa is great - very spacious and homely. We would highly recommend it.

Janice & Dave Bugg, Frome, UK - 14-28 February 2009


We have had a fantastic holiday here in lovely sunny Florida. The villa has been perfect and very well-equipped. Jack has loved swimming in the pool and Lucy has loved swimming in the bath! It has been a very hectic 2 weeks, but we have enjoyed every minute!

Very nice house. Love how you decorated. You have everything we needed.

We really enjoyed our stay at your beautiful villa. The pool and hot tub had plenty of use. We also liked the pool table and BBQ. We visited a lot of the parks and coming back here after, was a perfect way to unwind. We hope to be back again and we highly recommend this place. Thanks.

Loved our stay in your villa. It had everything we needed. Our daughter especially loved the table tennis - that is certainly a good idea. A lovely peaceful place to stay after the parks.

We had a great holiday. It’s very relaxing and peaceful in this area, providing a great escape from the theme parks, shops etc. The villa was spacious, well-equipped and has a great pool and hot tub. We will definitely book this villa again. (January 2008)

Thanks for a lovely stay in your home!

Have just spent a great two weeks at this delightful and very comfortable villa. Every morning awoke to the tones of the Mocking Bird, glorious sunrises and a swim in the gorgeous pool. Kennedy Space Centre well worth a visit and the Bok Gardens were an ‘oasis’ during a busy schedule – some great experiences. Many wonderful memories to take home. (1-16 March 2008)

We had a great time in your lovely home!

This villa was lovely and like a home away from home, but with a pool! Lots of lovely memories to take home, including the many memories spent by the pool tanning!! If we came back to Florida we would stay here again and will definitely recommend it to others.

What was nice when we booked the holiday in Christine and John's lovely, spacious villa, was that we were here in the US when the American people made history by electing a black person to be their next president.
Also on our last day, we were able to see, for a few moments from the villa patio, the shuttle going up from Kennedy Space Centre. (We had seen it on the launch pad the previous day, when we visited the Space Centre, but it was amazing to see it actually on its way.)
We did go and visit a couple of theme parks, but we wished to see more of the original Florida, which we did. This villa is situated so well for both the parks and 'natural' Florida!

We are having a lovely time staying here in your villa. Unfortunately we leave your lovely villa on Saturday. We have really enjoyed staying and will definitely be recommending your villa to our friends. Many thanks for all you have done and for letting us stay in your gorgeous villa.

Steve, Chris and boys, UK, December 2008


Had a fantastic stay, especially with the superb weather. The Jacuzzi and pool were put to good use by the boys every night. We really enjoyed staying at the villa and will certainly be recommending it to our friends and family. Many thanks, Christine and John, for letting us stay in your lovely villa.

Best holiday yet. We had so much fun doing ‘alternative’ Florida. (June 2007)

Our family enjoyed your vacation home. The home is decorated beautifully, was very spacious and accommodated us with all the amenities of being away from home.

The kids loved the pool and the adults loved the spa! Thank you for sharing your home.

We had a great holiday! The villa is superb; pool took a day or two to warm up, but after that it was lovely.  November is certainly the best time for theme parks – no queues at all!

Thanks for letting us stay in your lovely home!  We had a great time and really enjoyed the pool. We would definitely stay again.

Had a lovely time. Enjoyed staying in your home. It is very spacious and we enjoyed the pool, once it had warmed up.  Visited all the theme parks - very hectic but very enjoyable

The villa was lovely and really easy to find with your instructions. Pool was fabulous to go into in the mornings.
