Our third year of spending a few sun soaked weeks at this villa. And, we'll be back. The villa is spacious, clean, well appointed and family friendly. The pool area provides a scenic setting of a lake and forest. Great place just to sit back and watch the wildlife. The neighbourhood is safe and friending. The location is close to Disney, shopping, groceries and parkland. The owners take pride in their property and are excellent to deal with.
We took the family to Orlando in February and the villa was unbeatable for the price. The pool overlooks a small stretch of water with plenty of birdlife, particularly early in the morning. Regular visits from white ibis, snowy egret, anhinga, wood stork, blue winged teal, osprey, vultures and herons with the odd sighting of a turtle. Close to a huge Walmart, 5 minute drive to Shingle Creek (free parking and a pleasant walk, mostly in shade with red shouldered hawk, pileated woodpecker and countless lizards). Kissimmee lakefront is pleasant and just a few miles away, again free parking. Disney not too far away (not free parking!) with both coasts worth a day trip.
En-suite bed was comfortable and spacious with a good sized bathroom, good shower (didn't use the bath!). There were 7 of us in 4 bedrooms and room enough for all. Air con was efficient and reliable. Plenty of crockery and cutlery, loads of towels, all clean and tidy, and a safe. Pool felt cool but usable. If we visit again I would not hesitate in choosing this villa as our base. Highly recommended.
Just a final word of warning : make sure you have the alarm code in your documentation unless you want to meet the local sheriff when you arrive......
This house was the perfect fit for me and my family. It had such a large amount of space and had everything we needed to feel at home. The pool was very nice and fun to swim in, and the pond/lake was a nice view. We even got to see an alligator from a safe distance! Apart from that the location was great as it was close to Walmart and other stores that's carry essentials on a vacation trip. Overall an amazing stay! Thank you David for the unique experience.
This is our second year of staying at David's villa. It is wonderful. The backyard setting, with the pool and lake, is so relaxing and enjoyable. We love the wildlife that comes to the lake each day and gives the feel of being in the middle of a nature park. David is great to deal with and somehow manages to make the weather perfect during our stay. Will be back again next year.
The house was exactly what we were looking for the location was great because we could visit nearby attractions but still travel a couple of hours away and do things and be back to the house for a swim in the heated pool. The only drawback was that we would have like to have had a BBQ to use during our stay, also the bedroom bedding could be updated and it is starting to look a little worn out. Overall we would certainly look into booking this house again in the future if it is available and the owner and care takers were great in responding to questions and arrangements.
