Guestbook comments from the owner:
Had an amazing stay in this beautiful luxury villa for our holiday. We all had a wonderful time and no one wanted to come home. We saw hot air balloons right over the house and were lucky enough to have a crane family with 2 adorable chicks visit us. The villa was very comfortable and clean, and also very well equipped with everything that we needed. Free wifi and the best pool too! We are all looking forward to our next visit.
The photos really don't do the villa justice. It was so much bigger and better than we expected. A bit like a tardis! We had a wow moment as we walked through the front door and looked at the view in front of us. Not only is the villa lovely, but it's matched by what's around it. Lovely setting with loads of birds and wildlife to enjoy every day. We really did have everything that we needed for a fantastic vacation. Only 15 minutes to Disney, a spacious comfortable home with a touch of opulence, and a huge pool area with loads of loungers. The coloured lights in the pool at night were a nice touch too. We will be back .....
We returned from our first visit last year, and immediately booked this years visit. We just love this villa, and it's our favourite place to relax and unwind. We've done the parks many times before, so now it's all about putting our feet up and enjoying the Florida sunshine .... This is the perfect home for that. It's lovely and quiet and the pool area is very private, both very important to us . We have also fallen in love with the family of Sandhill cranes that have visited us by the pool on both holidays. Just can't wait till next time!
