About the owner: Lou and I live in CT but we long for the balmy weather of the South. Other than that Lou and I are polar opposites. He was fascinated with how things work from when he was a child – taking things apart and putting them together. He started building and fixing TVs from a very young age and then graduated to building computers. He is an engineer and enjoys web site development for the villa and automating pools, sprinklers – etc. I, on the other hand, was a history major and then a teacher and am the very opposite of handy. I love to cook and love having lots of people over to my house so I can feed them. Despite all our differences we enjoy many of the same things. We both are avid gardeners and enjoy walking with our 3 year old toy poodle puppy, Swizzle. We have big family vacations with parents, brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews. We all get together at the villa and have a blast. We go crazy at the park squeezing in as many rides as we can. When we tire out about mid-afternoon we head on back to the villa have lunch and a swim so we can race to the park and enjoy that evening’s entertainment. On lazy days we just hang by the pool playing Marco Polo or seeing who can hold their breath underwater the longest. When we start to turn to prunes from being in the water so long we head on inside to play board games or Wii. We look forward to those vacations and the special time that we can spend with the family without the distractions of everyday life getting in the way.
To date we have hosted over 650 families in our Florida home and Chatham Cape Cod home.
Why this property? Lou and I sat down together to create our “wish list” for the villa. We have been offering villas for rent since Dec 2002. We decided the most important thing was location. We wanted to be very close to Disney in the more prestigious (and less congested) West side. We wanted a view and a large pool with an extended pool deck and a secluded pool (very private). A year and a half passed without me seeing what we wanted. “I guess our list is unrealistic,” I told Lou after so much time had passed. Once or twice I would see a possibility – only to find out the villa was too close to a road or the pool was much smaller than it appeared in the online photos. Finally I found “it”. “Don’t get your hopes up,” Lou said, “it probably is going to be a disappointment like all the others.” I thought to myself, “Lou is probably right.” ? Lou and I knew we liked Rolling Hills –we had targeted it as our favorite development. Only 2 miles from Disney on the Golden Mile and only a mile to shops, restaurants, mini golf and big boy & girl golf, a supermarket, ATM and even a walk-in medical it was ideal. We drove down the tree lined streets with our agent. As we pulled in the driveway I said “Look, I can see the lake and the fountain from the driveway!” I jumped out of the car and ran to the back yard. I could not believe my eyes when I saw the huge expanse of sparkling blue water. “Look Lou – it has a spa!” “This pool deck is huge” I said. While the agent worked the lock we walked around the other side of the house. “Look at this lemon tree” Lou said, “it is loaded with fruit.” As we walked to the front door Lou warned me “OK – the back is great but the house could still be a disaster on the inside – don’t get your hopes up.” After we walked around Lou and I knew we were going to try to get this villa. I picked a couple of lemons up that had dropped to the ground and made fresh lemonade to toast our decision. Our hunt was over – our wish list fulfilled

This house was located just a short driving distance from Walt Disney World. It was very easy to get to the parks. This was the first time we have ever rented a vacation home and we were not disappointed! Everyone agreed the large pool and hot tub was the highlight of our stay. The house accommodations were also great. We had 9 people in our party and everyone had plenty of room to spread out. My sons enjoyed the game room when they weren’t in the pool. We will absolutely visit here again!

Highly recommend for families, location was amazing, super clean
I would definitely recommend this house for a family vacation. We had the BEST time! Everything was perfect. I can't think of a single thing I would change. So many convenience extras were provided.The house was very spacious and clean. Beds were very comfortable, great pillows, sheets were soft. Kitchen was super well equipped with top quality items - tons of pot & pans, utensils, coffee make and the much appreciated Kuerig, literally everything you would need. We all laughed and said this is more stuff than in our own homes!!!The pool and pool area are soooooo much bigger than I have ever seen before. The pool floats which were at the house made it even better. Everyone loved the bluetooth speaker on the back patio and the large TV. It was fun to watch sports while the kids played in the pool. I enjoyed having breakfast on the patio under the palm tree overlooking the lake. It was so relaxing. The backyard is completely private which was also great. We are friendly people but went on this trip to enjoy our family and so many other homes are right next to another house offering no privacy.You know what they say in real estate business: location, location, location and this location can't be beat. I am not kidding when I say that everything you could need was so close. Walmart, Target, grocery stores, shopping, water park (5 minutes), 2 mini golf courses (3 minutes), every single kind of restaurant. Disney was so close as were the other attractions.All I can say is that we have rented many homes and this one is simply perfect!
