We very much
enjoyed our stay. The house is
beautiful and very spacious and
space was something we needed for
our large group. Everything was
wonderful however we all really
enjoyed the pool & spa. We hope to
return in the future!
Hi Richard. We had a
lovely time at your house. The accommodations were both nicely appointed and
very comfortable. Additionally, the ping pong tables and game room were
great additions that gave us hours of fun. We hope to come back in the near
future and will check availability then. In the meantime continue enjoying
and sharing your house. All the best,

Richard, Your villa must be one of the best if not THE best in Florida when
it comes to rental. We were very much at home and lacked for nothing. I was
amazed at how perfectly everything was decorated and everything was way
above the mark. On a 1 to 10 your place is a 15. The game room was very
entertaining and kept the younger part of our group busy when not in the
pool, spa or on the go. Your location was as I thought and was just far
enough away from attractions to be able to travel but yet close enough so
the commute was easy and quick, whether it be the coasts or amusement. Your
home location was perfect, for added privacy being a corner lot with only
one home next door which happened to be vacant during our stay. Again on
behalf of our family we thank you so much for allowing us the privilege to
rent and stay at your villa. I would rent from you again without hesitation.
You have handled this rental with the finest courtesy, professionalism and
response as I have ever experienced. There are many people and businesses
which could learn from you. With sincere thanks.

Thanks for the wonderful stay. We had a great
time & the kids loved the pool area! I'm sure we will be back in the
future. Thank you for letting us use your fantastic home!
Richard. Absolutely superb. Everyone thought the villa and all the
facilities were super. A good time was had by all. As a large group we found
the accommodation spacious and well suited to our needs. The location was
ideal as it enabled easy access to all the main attractions and we
particularly enjoyed the benefits of the pool after a long day out. I will
definitely recommend your villa to any other party that I here from in the

enjoyable stay, beautiful house and a great base for all parks.

swimmers all enjoyed their tour so much and talk about your beautiful home
and accommodation constantly. It was wonderful to start off using your
facilities, particularly in the heat. They had to be satisfied with small
Hotel rooms thereafter! Thanks for such a great facility, we'll be BACK!!!
a great time and you have a lovely home. I am sorry we were unable to get a
picture. Actually we did get one, however, the camera eventually made
it into the pool and all of the photos were ruined. All in all though
everyone had a wonderful time and we are considering doing this again next
SS, Florida, USA, May 2007
What a wonderful house you have here. This is
a great dream home for me and my family. We enjoyed the location, the
community is very nice and peaceful. Driving distance from here to
Disney was great. My family and I had a remarkable time here in Florida
and we would love to come back to stay in your home again. I will be
recommending others to come and stay as well. We'll be BACK!!!
|Had a great time, the house was really nice -
I would recommend this house to whomever comes here for vacation.
Beautiful house, I hate to leave it behind. The house was very spacious
with wonderful amenities. Our entire group enjoyed our stay THOROUGHLY.
JS, Michigan, USA, June 2007
We all had a great vacation and loved the
villa. We all had a wonderful time, love the location of your villa.
Thank you very much for all your help and I will recommend your place
for a great vacation rental. Thanks again,
KS, Miami, FL, USA, July 2007
We all had a
marvellous holiday as usual, but
your villa was the icing on the
cake! It is by far the best we have
ever been and is so well equipped.
Absolutely Awesome! The pool area
was fantastic. The Games
room was a big hit and the
number of toilets excellent (that is
important when there are 4 men!). In
fact there was nothing that could be
improved upon. Thanks again for
sharing your home with us. We really
felt we didn't spend enough time in
it. Hope to return. Superb.
JL, Scotland, July 2007
just want to say thank you very much for the stay at your lovely home
everyone loved it so much we did not want to leave. Richard once again thank
you for the stay and yes i would come back again. Thank You
KS, Ct, USA. July 2007
Carl and Richard. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your
fantastic house, what a fabulous place you have. We had a brilliant time,
the most popular areas being pool and games room. Andrew (13yrs) and Gareth
(18yrs) spent most of their time, when not at the Parks, in either the pool
or the games room. I enjoyed sitting by the pool in the mornings having my
breakfast. After a tiring day walking round the Parks the first thing we
would do when we got back would be to jump into the pool to cool off or just
dip our feet in, it was such a relaxing environment. We found your house
very comfortable and spacious (thank goodness for Air Con), the location
ideal, just 20 mins at most from the Parks, Busch Gardens a little further
away, about 1 hour and, of course, 24 hour Wal Mart just round the corner.
The I4 and US27 easily accessible and the traffic always moving (unlike
International Drive which seemed to be congested most of the time). Besides
the Parks we also spent quite a bit of time and money at the Premium
Outlets, never seen the boys or Glen so enthusiastic about spending their
money! Between shopping and Parks we also managed to squeeze in a game of
golf which was conveniently just around the corner. I thoroughly enjoyed my
game but it was soooo very, very hot. We all agree that we had one of the
best holidays we've had and I would like to think that it won't be too long
before we are back again for a second instalment of pure luxury, relaxation
Having had such a great time last year, we had to come back. Needless to say we really had a wonderful time again in spite of the intensive heat - the house was so welcoming when coming back from the outings. Thanks again Carl, Richard. It was also great having our other 2 sons and their families with us.
Mum and dad. Aug 2007
Wow, what a
great home to stay;
Hi Richard. We had a great time thanks and
the house was wonderful. Kids loved the games room and wife loved the pool
so everyone happy. Great
vacation and nice base from which to enjoy and Southern Dunes Golf is almost
for any golfer.
Loads of holiday highlights and hopefully we will be back
really had a great time! We WILL
definitely be returning here.
We all enjoyed your villa, especially the children. They had endless fun in
the pool and games room. If we return to Florida we will definitely use your
villa again. Thanks from all of us
Hi Richard. We really enjoyed staying at your excellent villa.
SB, UK Oct 2007
wonderful house you have here. This is a great dream home for me and my
family. We enjoyed the location, the community is very nice and peaceful.
Driving distance from here to Disney was great. My family and i had a
remarkable time here in Florida and we would love to come back to stay in
your home again. I will be recommending others to come and stay as well.
We'll be BACK!!!
BK ALABAMA USA. Nov 2007
Hi Richard. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed staying in your Orlando home. We want to go back next summer. We could not have asked for a better home than Vaughan Villa! Having the wireless Internet was a bonus.
CL, Gadsden, AL, USA, Nov 2007
place! We loved it. The kids were in heaven with the pool and game room. We
will be back and will tell all our friends about it. Thanks for the
Hi Richard. Our family
thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay at your beautiful Haines City, Florida
home last week. The pool was very comfortable on the cooler evenings. No one
wanted to come back north to the snow and cold weather. Again, thank you for
renting your home to us...some of our friends have asked us for information,
so don't be surprised if you don't hear from some people we know when they
are coming to Orlando.
DT, USA, Dec 2007
I just wanted to thank you and let you know how
much we enjoyed our stay at your home. It was much more than we ever
anticipated! Our family
‘s goal has always been to “create a memory”. This vacation has topped all
others!! This beautiful home allowed us to be altogether in one location and
not worry about disturbing someone in another room or on another floor. Our
grandchildren lived in the pool every day when we returned from Disney and
the “men folk” loved watching the sports on the big screen. We could never
repeat this fabulous time – its way amazing! Thank you the Vaughan Family.
Thanks for allowing
us to stay in your lovely home! We will definitely use this home again with
your permission in the future. HOPEFULLY THE NOT SO DISTANT FUTURE! As a
matter of fact, we came home bragging about the place. We thoroughly enjoyed
our stay. As far as the upstairs section of the home we did tour it on our
first day there and never used the stairs again ha! ha! But on our next
visit I'm sure we will be using all of your facilities when we plan to
return with our teenagers. My daughter especially liked the pool by the way.
We had to swim with her every morning when we awoke and every night before
we put her to bed. She thinks in her little mind that that is our home ha!
ha! She told me yesterday morning that she prefers our house in Florida over
this one! Try to explain that one to a three year old! Thanks again for
allowing us to stay in your home and we will be sure and book earlier next
Had a blast!!!! The house is so beautiful and
love the changes! Thank You Again, See you for Zora 2008! Sincerely, Your
Beverly. Miami, USA Jan 2008
without doubt the holiday of a lifetime for all of us! The villa was
amazing, so much to do for everyone, it instantly felt at home from the
minute we arrived. We have booked again for next year.
Richard, everything was FANTASTIC!!! I can't thank you enough for
with us! We all had a great vacation and
Thomas and I have already been throwing around the idea of booking again for
next year! The location of the house was great! Very close to
everything and easy to get around! We have many friends and family who
go to Florida every year, so we will make sure to recommend your home to
MH, Ontario, Canada, Feb 2008
Our vacation was wonderful. The weather was suspect, but the
accommodations were wonderful. Thank you.
Thanks again. We had a wonderful time.
TG, Mi, USA FEB 2008
Thank you for sharing your beautiful vacation home with our family. There
were thirteen of us; grandparents, children and grandchildren. The house
was so big no one got in anybody else’s way! The games room was in constant
use (we had many pool tournaments) and enjoyed table tennis and the other
games. We spent lots of time around the pool having card games etc.
Here are a few pictures that were taken at your amazing vacation home.
Thanks so much for sharing it with us! It did not feel like a
rental....everything is top notch....all the furnishings are luxurious as
are the linens. The kids were excited by the pool and all the pool toys,
the DVD players in every room, and the game room is amazing! What a great
way to use that space...and it is not far from the main area so it is not
difficult to still supervise the kids. The amount of space we get for our
dollar is really unreal....the house is huge! Everyone gets their own space
to unwind which was so nice at the end of our vacation! Thanks again for
sharing this home and for all the special touches you have put into it! We
will definitely visit again!
LOVED the houses, thanks! As soon as I have the dates for next year I'd like
to go ahead and reserve them again.
Richard, At this moment I was reviewing the pictures from our vacation. We had a fabulous time! Worst part about taking a vacation is having to return home We absolutely loved the house!!! We will return in a couple of years and bring more family with us, we were so impressed with it that we want to share the experience next time! We managed to see the infamous alligator at the lake- and have pictures of that as well! I am so appreciative of the home and the experience it afforded our family- there is nothing like waking in the morning to sit by the pool with your coffee and watching the children swim! Best way to wake by far! The house had everything we needed, I cannot discount the convenience of the stroller and the pack and play - having brought my two year old. The pool inspired my fiancé to build one just like it at home, it is laid out so nice. You have done a wonderful job facilitating the renting of the home and your prompt responses and follow up are extremely professional and the icing on the cake for the experience. Thanks again!
AD, In, USA. April 2008
We just arrived home from beautiful, sunny Florida! First of all, I would
like to thank you for renting the villa to us for our stay.
We truly did enjoy our stay at your house. After riding through the entire
development, we do have to admit that you probably have one of the best, if
not the best, lot in the development. We really did enjoy the privacy and
the outside of the house looked beautiful and well maintained. The palms
and flowers in back of the spa provide beautiful background scenery. We
enjoyed the game room and the pool and spa and got quite a bit of use out of
them for the week. Again, thank you for the use of your home.
Hello Richard, I don't
know where to begin to tell you how much of a great time we had and how much
we are looking forward to coming back next year or the year after. Not one
of us wanted to leave and can't stop talking about the most beautiful home
we have stayed in. We went to Gatlinburg Tn last year and stayed in a
million dollar home and it was a nine bedroom home with three levels and it
still did not meet the standards of your home. Thanks your home
Hi Richard, We are all extremely pleased with the house. We found everything impeccable and we are very, very happy with it. We had an unreal time!! .
GF, Buenos Aires, Argentina. May 2008
Hi Richard, we are having a lovely time. It
has been a pleasure working with you via email.
BJ, Kansas USA. May 2008
Hi Richard, we had a fantastic time. We all said that we could not have asked for more from the house! Yet again, had a fantastic stay, the pool was lovely and hot. We do hope you like the addition to your shirt collection in the Games Room. House still is lovely and enjoyed the spacious rooms. Will definitely be coming back to stay in the future.
TB, UK .May 2008
Carl and Richard, Thank you for letting us spend time at your villa. Your home was very spacious and so close to Disney! We were able to relax by the pool and take our time going to Disney. It was very relaxing to have a home to come and use the spa. My kids loved it! The photo (above) is of them at the pool. The 2 year old learned to swim with floaties here..what an achievement! They didn't want to leave. We probably need to book next years vacation soon, because you are getting very popular!
MM, TX USA June 2008
AU, TX, USA Jun 2008
had a fab time in the villa and it was very well equipped with everything
that we needed. We all loved Manny's and I still dream of those delicious
ribs 2 weeks down the line!! Thanks again for a great stay and hope
your family holiday is a good one.
PS Marco felt right at home in the games room especially with the EAGLES TOP. "Come on the EAGLES".
L&M C, New Zealand July 2008
space for everyone – absolutely had a grand time - sorry to leave. Thank you
for such a beautiful home.
Vaughan Family, UK Aug/Sep 2008
fantastic time. The house is fabulous. We loved the games room, especially
playing pool. Great to jump in pool after the parks. Looking forward to next
year already. Thank you.
RF, London UK. Aug 2008
Just wanted to write and thank you for letting us stay in your villa in
Florida. We had a wonderful time in your house everything was fabulous
plenty of room for the 13 of us. Kids loved the pool and games room and
can't wait to go swimming again. My own daughter Megan would like us to get
a pool like that at home but I had to try and explain that the weather
wouldn't be as nice. Well looking forward to our next trip to Florida in a
couple of years and we will certainly recommend you to anyone we know
thinking of booking in the future. Once again thanking you from all of us.
all had a fantastic holiday ! The little kids loved the pool and the big
kids loved the games room and the table tennis table outside is a great idea
! You have a lovely house, we have stayed in several villas in Florida and
yours is definitely one of the best! Thanks again for the use of your great
had a great time in Orlando and Disney World. Love your home and the
space. We actually are now thinking
of buying a house down there and rent it out similar to what you are
doing. We really liked your house and it was exactly as advertised. The
boys loved the pool almost as much as Disney itself!
BC, IN USA OCct2008
The house is simply gorgeous and
breathtaking. We had a wonderful time as a family. It was very relaxing and
a good time all round, we would love to come back in the near future.
FK, NJ, USA Oct 2008
The house was great. Thanks again for
letting us stay there. The pool and game room were used by the
kids and us everyday. It was a great experience and I would definitely
do it again. Thanks.....and thanks again for the use of your beautiful
behalf of all of us, we would like to say a big thank you for inviting us
into such a beautiful place. The facilities were great! And the children
really enjoyed having the pool and outdoor area. The games room was a
brilliant opportunity for everyone, especially the kids to have lots of fun,
spending most night times in there. The house is like no other, with lots of
open space giving us lots of room and time to relax after a long tiring day,
I'm sure there is lots we could tell you about everything but we would be
here all day...so once again a big thank you, we would love to come back
sometime in the near future!
SW, UK Nov 2008
We enjoyed having such a beautiful and
comfortable place to stay during our first family holiday vacation to
Disney. The girls loved naming all of the different rooms in the "Disney
House". They re ages 3, 4 and 15 months. Many thanks
SM, USA Nov 2008
The house was wonderful especially the pool.
Had a great time. We will see you again soon! We loved coming home from
Disney to a warm, open, fun comfortable house.
SB, SC USA Nov 2008
What a lovely Vacation! What a treat to find
the house even better(!) than it appeared online. The heated pool was our
favourite hangout! We have made 10 days of WONDERFUL memories in this
house! From ping pong matches to story time around the living room- from
fabulous home cooked meals to having sleep-overs with the cousins in the
room beside.. I can't say enough good things about this vacation! Thanks
Wonderful house, all amenities nearby and only 20 minutes from Disney yet
away from all the congestion and franticness of International Drive area!!
Beds are comfortable, there’s plenty of living space, pool area is wonderful
and the games room is a great bonus if you have kids with you. Would
definitely recommend to anyone – either single families or groups seeking to
share! Cheers. Simon
This is our 2nd stay here and again we all
had a great holiday! The villa is fantastic and provided a wonderful home to
us during our 2 weeks. On behalf of all of us we'd like to thank you and
hope to be back again in the future!!!
RS, Kent UK Jan 2009
you have an incredible home. Shortly after we arrived the kids went in the
pool. They had so much fun in the pool that they said they didn't even care
if they went to Disney World, they would rather stay at the house and swim.
Though we still did go to Disney. I think next time we will probably just
sit at the house and relax without having to rush around going places. Thank
you very much for letting us spend our time at the house. Thanks again,
RS, NH USA JAN 2009
Our family of 13 had the "Time of Our Life" at this grand home -
relaxing in the hot tub, swimming in the 'heated' pool and playing games in
the games room. What more could anyone ask for. It was no doubt a family
vacation with memories that will last a life time! Grandpa had fun
beating all the kids at Air Hockey!! Thanks for renting us
your dream home in Orlando, and you can be sure we will be in touch should
there be a future family vacation in the Disney area.
PL, Ontario, Canada Jan 2009
Hi Richard, Having made the decision to holiday together; the
next task was to find a villa suitable for 4 adults, 4 young men (grandsons)
ranging from 12-20 years and an 8 year old girl. we found your villa very
comfortable and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We had a great time
thanks, everyone enjoyed the holiday and your villa, which did live up to
our expectations. The villa was nice and spacious and very well appointed.
The place is great and finished to high standard. The layout is very good
and helps give everyone their own space and the pool and games room kept the
younger ones well occupied, when us oldies were busy or needing some space
of our own.
Your directions to the villa were also very good. We were able to get there without any problems whatsoever. Many thanks for taking the trouble to call us both before our departure and after our arrival at the villa. The basket of information is extremely useful. This was very much appreciated.
TB, UK Feb 2009
Hi Richard, the holiday was great. The house was
amazing, everything we expected and more. The kids loved the pool and the
fact the house was away from the whole congestion of Disney was actually
perfect. It gave the kids winding down time. The cruise was great. It really
is all about the kids. We definitely would do it all again soon. I like the
idea of going to Disney and then doing the cruise, it breaks up the
craziness. We would definitely love to stay at the house again thank you so
NS, NY, USA Mar 2009
Thank you so much for the use
of the villa. It was as beautiful as it looked on your web page. The games
room was a god send to keep the younger kids busy and happy. The pool area
was enjoyed by the adults as much as the kids. I don't think there was more
then 10 min of when we were there that the kids weren't in the pool. It was
very spacious and even with 13 in our party we often felt like we had our
privacy. It is a vacation that will be in our memories forever and would
love to come back sometime. Thanks again.
Our family really enjoyed staying in your villa. Even though we had a
group we had sufficient bedrooms/baths for everyone. We especially enjoyed
the pool and the ping pong table. We would definitely choose to stay in
your home again if we visit Orlando again. Thank you for sharing your home
The Campbell Family, Canada Mar 2009
Richard, I just wanted to send you a quick note, our time at your villa
could not have worked better for our family. My wife and I are talking about
doing this in a two years, I hope you are still in the business then. I am
sure our children and grandchildren will have fond memories of this trip.
Well, as you promised, the villa
certainly had the “Wow Factor”, with all our wishes catered for – no mean
feat considering our party of 12 included 5 boisterous lads and a toddler.
The pool and the games room were well used by all and were the perfect way
to relax after spending the day in the Parks.
furniture, décor, entertainment systems (we saw plenty of English football
on the huge TV) and the space in general were top notch and the all round
feel of the villa is one of luxury. We certainly stumbled on a bargain too
as the price was most definitely right. We cannot recommend your home highly
enough and it played a big part in us all enjoying a holiday of a lifetime.
The location too was ideal, set in a peaceful and quiet estate, yet only 25
minutes from Disney and an hour from Busch Gardens – ideal for anyone coming
to do the Parks. To tell the truth, we didn’t want to leave and I think we
hide our sadness pretty well in the photo! We all agreed Richard that, if we
could afford it, we’d visit your place every year
hi Richard, we had a great time in
Florida, it was great staying at your villa. You have a beautiful home and a
great pool. The kids loved the pool and the games room. a beautiful place to
return to after a long day out at the parks. I would recommend your home to everyone. we loved your
home and are looking forward to returning.
The house was fabulous. The pool will make you never want to leave.
Thank Thanks for renting out your beautiful home that now holds
Thank you again for everything. We
are very excited about returning.
PC, ME USA Apr 2009
villa is truly above and beyond five stars! A luxurious vacation at its
best. My wife got very spoiled the first night and told me she doesn't want
me to use the same bathroom as her [you have a gezillion bathrooms!] She
wanted her own ! The pool was a true delight. The days we stayed home and
relaxed were the highlights of our vacation!
We had a fabulous time. Thank you so much.
SC, Chicago USA May 2009
Richard, We had a glorious vacation. The house couldn't be better and the
kitchen couldn't be better stocked. The kids even saw a gator in the
pond. Is that possible? They were so excited. The weather was perfect and
it was so nice to be able to come home and totally relax after a long day at
the parks. The only down point of the week was the Celtics/Magic game that
we went to on Friday night. The Celtics were terrible! We certainly hope to
come back again because everyone agreed it was the best vacation we ever
EH, NH, USA May 09
Dear Richard, Thank you for everything!
It has been a holiday in a million, I have enjoyed myself so much. Claire
Richard, Thank you for a great holiday. I have loved every moment. Paolo
Kent, UK June 2009
Well Richard, another week and another 4
happy families! We had 13 in our family/group and we truly enjoyed your
lovely villa. it gave us privacy when we needed it and quality family time
that will be cherished for years to come. Thank you again.
MN, TN. USA June 2009
Richard, Carl. Fabulous as usual! Thanks for letting us stay.
MM, TX USA July09
Thank you very much for allowing us to stay
in your pleasant villa. We had 2 very enjoyable weeks with the fantastic
pool area and games rooms were spacious and comfortable whilst
shopping malls and Disney were easily accessible.
I must admit that the whole pool area was a wonderful
experience as we’ve never had such amounts of room around a pool under
screening before and the furniture was very comfortable. We all had a great
deal of fun in the games room, especially with the pool table, air hockey
and of course the T/T table outside.Thanks again.
KR, Kent UK July 2009
Richard, thank you so much for the use of
your lovely home - luxury. we have all had a great 2 weeks and look
forward to coming back again! Booked for 2011!
Thank you Richard, we had a great time,
extremely lovely villa, would definitely come again and recommend to family
Absolutely top class facilities and ideally situated for all the attractions. Brilliant for kids and family holidays. we really enjoyed our stay here.
It was very comfortable and homely. it catered for all our needs. No body wanted to leave. we will come back!
LM, USA Aug 2009
Hi Richard, Thank you for our stay in your
villa. It was fantastic, we all had a great time. We are looking forward to
our next visit!!
AC, Telford, UK Aug 2009
Thank you for a beautiful, inviting and relaxing
house! everyone, young and old enjoyed the house. the pool was great - who
needs Disney with such a house and all the activities. Thank you from
everyone! We had a great time
Mum did not want to leave!!
Am GA, USA Sep 2009
We would all like to thank you for your part
of our wonderful vacation. Our trip to Central Florida will always be one
of our favorite vacations. We enjoyed the parks, the Florida Aquarium in
Tampa, the warm waters of both the Gulf of Mexico near Clearwater and our
favorite, the Atlantic Ocean
in the Cocoa beach area. Your villa is in a great location for seeing all
of what Central Florida has to offer. It took us about an hour to get to
either coast and 15min or so to the parks. Perfect! The villa was
great. The kids (ok, us too) were like fish all week. We all loved the
pool. I was also pleased with the nice TV for NFL Sunday football along
with occasional games of Pool, air hockey and foos ball. One thing I must
not forget is to our MAJOR surprise was a real Gator living down at the
dock. We went for a walk one day and noticed the signs for Alligator
warning, "do not swim in lake"! Well once we got on the dock and seen this
10' gator right below us, none of us were going swimming there any time
soon. Why would we anyway with the nice pool back home :) This was a much
different experience then seeing anything like that in a zoo or
safari!!! We would definitely stay at your villa again when in Florida and
would recommend to all. Thank you so much,
Mark, Karen, Joshua, and Maddison. Wa, USA Oct 2009
Thank you for a great time in this house. We have been on Magic Kingdom,
Epcot and Animal Kingdom. It was all wonderful. the children liked the pool
in the house very much. They would rather be in the pool than in Blizzard
beach!! The Ping Pong table has also been used a lot. many greetings
Norway, Sep 2009
Thank you for providing and excellent home for our Florida holiday.
We all had a
fantastic time, the villa was beautiful, there was plenty of space for
everyone. The pool table was well used, there were many tournaments, some of
us became very competitive! The youngest member really improved on her
swimming and has now asked her granddad to build a pool now she is home.
Thanks again, hope to come back.
We had a wonderful time!! The house is
gorgeous! I was very impressed. Everyone loved the pool - even at Disney,
the kids were always asking "when can we go home and swim in the pool?" The
ping pong table was also a big hit - many "tournaments" that week.
VK, NJ, USA Nov 2009
What a beautiful home! We got here yesterday
and in no time the little guys were in the pool enjoying it immediately. we
spent our days at the parks and our evenings in the pool and also the spa.
CQ, Edmonton, Canada Nov 2009
Thanks again for allowing us to rent your
property this past week. We had a wonderful time. We so enjoyed the pool and
all the house had to offer. So nice to have a Thanksgiving together.
Memories for a life time. Thank you!!!
with the house was wonderful!
We came here at the end of the week to join
our husbands that were here for business. . Thank you for opening your
beautiful home to all of us and allowing us to be away from the snow back
home. Thank you!

The house is beautiful and we loved the games Room!
KC, NY, USA Jan 2010
We just returned home from our Florida vacation. We all had a wonderful time and truly enjoyed staying in your home. The adults spent each evening in the hot tub and the kids used the pool at every opportunity. Your home is beautiful and a perfect way to spend a vacation. This was our first experience with a vacation home rental, but we are now converts. Thanks again for enabling us to have such a memorable vacation.
CB, Il USA Feb 2010
Richard, I should let you know that it was a wonderful place to stay.
We really enjoyed your house.
The pool is delightfully warm. The home was clean, and well taken care of.
We really enjoyed staying there – will recommend it to friends!
DC, Canada, Mar 2010
Hi Richard, We
had a fantastic time thank you so much. Thanks again and if we are back in
the Orlando area we will definitely rent from you again.
All had a great time in
your house. A perfect house for a large family. Great location for
park/shops and golf. The Games room and pool etc were fab!!
GC, UK Apr 2010
Richard, your house is really nice. We enjoyed our stay and I think if we
would come back we would rent your villa again. Thanks again for letting us
Had a fantastic time, the swimming pool was
lovely to come home to after the Parks or a hard days shopping! The Kids
loved the playroom, hopefully will be able to come again soon.
Richard, this was the best time. The house game
room and pool was fantastic. I would definitely come back. Thanks Richard
for a great home away from home. I love your home sooo much, I want to go
CW, SC, USA Jun 10
Hi Richard, we had a
great time. We really enjoyed your house. It was great to have enough
bedrooms for everyone. The pool got a lot of use by the three teenagers we
had with us. It was wonderful after a full day of walking in the heat to
come home to the beautiful swimming pool. We all took advantage of the games
room and the ping pong outside.
CE, TX, USA Jun 10
Hi Richard, we had a fantastic time here and
great staying at your fabulous house. It has been my dream of staying in a
wonderful house with a swimming pool, great games room and walking down to
the lake. I'm glad that services, shops and malls are nearby and also it
saves our time. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Hopefully we will come again
with my friends.
MS, Canada Jun 10
Hi Richard, Just
got back from Florida and first of all, your home was lovely, and we had an
amazing stay in Orlando. Most of us barely left the pool! Thank you again
for your lovely vacation home, and I’m sure you'll hear from us very soon,
or from our friends and family who we've raved to about your villa.
SS, Canada Jun 10
Just wanted to
take a moment to let you know what a great time we had at the Villa. I
believe I already told you how beautiful and comfortable the house was.
It lends itself to such a cozy environment. We
vacation often and have rented many Villas. Your Villa and grounds were by
far the nicest vacation spot to date. Everything was clean and very well
maintained. Everyone was pleased.
Richard, your home was beautiful
and we enjoyed our time at the pool. Love to come
back one day when we are all well. Thanks again.
Tim Shirley, SC, USA July 10
Richard, Everything was fine, the house was fantastic, best rental property
I have ever stayed in without doubt.
Returning visitors! It was as good as we
remembered. We didn't have one day of rest this time and was so nice to come
home to such a lovely house and relax around the pool. Thank you. Have
booked again for next year!
RF, Surrey UK Aug 10
Hi Richard, Had a fantastic holiday
at your wonderful villa. We are planning for October 2013!!! Pool is
fantastic after long hot days in the parks. We made good
use of your wonderful BBQ. Thanks again for supplying such a wonderful place
to stay. Felt so at home, we don't want to go home. Thanks again and
please let me know when we can provisionally book again.
Grant, Scotland. Oct 10
Richard, Thank you for sharing
your home with us! We had a great eight days there. The temperature was in
the high 80's/low 90's and we had sunshine the whole time. It was
fantastic! Our children enjoyed your pool to the fullest extent. Some days
I think they would have preferred staying in the pool rather then going to a
theme park. It was a big hit with them and the shape and size were
perfect. We took care of your home like it was our own. Thanks again,
The vacation was great, thank
you! Thanks for a great place to stay. The house was fantastic! We'll be in
touch for our next trip to Florida. We had a blast!
The vacation home
was great, it made for a great escape after spending 10-12 hours a day at
the Disney parks. Just a fabulous home, had all the amenities and then
some, more then we could ever ask for - BIG THANK YOU FROM US FOR YOUR HOME
IT WAS A BLAST!!!! - The game room and ping pong tables made for some
stress relievers after those long days too...Let us not forget how nice the
Jacuzzi was to go into at night time and take care of those sore feet from
walking all day - We want liked it so much we are going to make it a yearly
trip and hope we can utilize the home again in the future.
MM, IL USA Nov 10
Dear Richard, the vacation was wonderful as well as your home. Being at
Disney World everyday was pretty exhausting, therefore we did not get to
take advantage of the pool area as much as we had liked. The kids
thoroughly enjoyed the game room though!
Richard, We had a great time in your home. The first couple days were quite
chilly out so everyone really enjoyed jumping in the nice warm pool and
relaxing at the end of the day. We also made great use of your game room.
Having the 6 bedrooms gave each family their own area while in the house
which was very nice. Once again THANK YOU.
- Just wanted to let you know we had an awesome time at your villa!!!! The
kids enjoyed the pool SO much and went swimming 1-3 times every day. Even
the big kids (adults) enjoyed it just as much!!! The house worked out great
for so many people. It is layed out so nicely that you don't feel like you
are living "on top of each other." Thanks again for the use of your place.
I would recommend it to anyone. Thanks. Kelli
KJ, USA Jan 11
Hi Richard we enjoyed staying in
such a nice house and a wonderful place here in Haines City, Orlando! Our
kids loved the pool and of course the the playroom too, a lot of matches at
the air hockey table and the pool table. we had a fabulous time here.
Although the weather was a bit chilly, but nothing compared to DC right
now!! Otherwise we had some good days ion the parks and of course a trip to
Premium Outlet!! Thank you for providing us our 'superhome' for our week
here in Florida.
JF, DC, USA Jan 11
Thank you for letting us
use your beautiful home. While we were enjoying the beautiful 81 -85 degree
weather, back home was 5 to 6 inches of snow!
11 of us had a truly
fantastic week here celebrating a 40th birthday. Weather could have been
warmer but it didn't stop us from getting out and about.
We had a WONDERFUL time! Your house was
perfect for our group and
I couldn't have asked for a
more perfect place. Our group consisted of 3 families (13 people total) and
the house provided all of the amenities we could have asked for. Plenty of
rooms for everyone and enough space to spread out and get away if we needed
a break from each other. The location was perfect (close to grocery store,
restaurants, etc) and just a short drive to the Disney parks. Richard, you
made the rental process painless and were helpful in answering any questions
I had. We would definitely stay in this house again and I would highly
recommend it to anyone else with a large group who is vacationing in the
Richard, we very much enjoyed out stay at
your home in Orlando this week,
Richard! The house was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT and everything we hoped it would
be! If you can believe it, some days we actually had to force the kids to
leave the house and go to Disney. I think I have probably rented the house
at least 5 times for you....I should have taken more of the postcards, as I
have handed them to a few friends upon our return and they are all anxiously
trying to figure out how soon they can plan a trip :-). We too, are looking
forward to coming back VERY SOON! I will certainly leave a comment on the
link you provided. Again, many thanks for sharing your wonderful home and
your high level of professionalism and very apparent commitment to guest
satisfaction! All the Best!
SP, MD, USA. Mar 11
Hi Richard, We really enjoyed our time there. The size of
the home was perfect for our three generation family of ten. It was great
to have the space. The grandchildren really enjoyed the pool. The
convenience of the location to shopping as well as the easy route to Disney
World was great.
Had a great time outside in the pool. Great
House! Thanks Richard.
PL, USA Apr 11
Thank you for letting us have your home for
our 2 weeks holiday. This was a wonderful villa to stay in. We came as a
group of 14 and our stay was very comfortable as it was home from home. We
came as it was dad's 60th birthday and my brother's 20th, my sons 10th and
his friends 9th's birthday. The children really enjoyed the pool and the
games room. we will certainly come again. Many thanks Richard!
PN, USA May 11
villa is very cosey and welcomes you very warmly. The pool is relaxing and
clean as there were hardly any bugs. The games room is huge and with wide
range of different sports. Big thanks Carl and Rich for the use of your
villa. We had a wonderful time. Everything was top class, we've enjoyed our
holiday immensely. I love this villa! I loved the pool!
HN, UK May 11
Thank you for letting us
stay. This house is perfect for all. never a dull moment!
We wish to thank you for providing us a
clean, large and comfortable home! We truly enjoyed our stay and leave
relaxed and rested. Hoping to stay again in the near future.
M-C, Canada. June 11
had 2 great weeks in your house, it was wonderful. There was plenty of room
for our party of 13. The kids loved the playroom and the pool. We had great
times in different parks, shopping-centers and in and around your house. The
location was perfect.
We would love to come back and we will recommend it to friends here in Norway. We had a vacation we will never forget. We went to Manny´s Chophouse in Haines City several times and had great dinner!!
Thanks a lot for letting us stay in your house!!
Fam. Hessen/Stokkeland, Westre & Stensoe Norway Jul 11
We absolutely loved the house!! We all had loved spending time by the pool and enjoying the sprinklers/fountains. One of the younger kids' favourite things to do was sticking their heads under the water. We had many ping pong battles and ended many nights hanging out in the hot tub. after a long day at the parks that felt amazing. Everyone should definitely stop for goat milk fudge down the road and Denny's is way better than Perkins! Thank you again for letting us stay at your beautiful house, we had an amazing time.
DL, NY, USA Jul 11
Great place ever! we loved the pool and the
games room was brilliant, would rather stay here than England!! We don't
wanna go home..
Russell liked sunbathing, drinking and eating, Sue liked the Spa jacuzzi and the girls liked the swimming. Manny's was excellent!
The fishing was good - beware of Ali-G, he will take the biggest fish!!

holiday. The house was perfect, the TV upgrades were appreciated by the
RF, UK Aug 11
Hi Richard, we had a fantastic time. This
house and pool are amazing!. I have no words to describe our amazing time.
Dear Richard, as always i have had a brilliant time in Orlando! Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
PA & CS, UK Oct 11
IN EVERYWAY!!!!!! We were gleeful when we opened the front door of your
beautiful home. We were blown away by the vaulted ceilings and the large
open feeling of your home. We went straight to the pool. We were thrilled by
the large deck, the ping pong "space", the large spa and the beautiful
landscaping in the back yard. As we wandered through your wonderful home
were impressed by the size of the rooms and the convenient layout of the
bedrooms/to bathroooms. The kitchen was well furnished..with plenty of
glasses/dishes/silverware for our family of 14. Our children and
grandchildren enjoyed the gamesroom. A++++ for cleanliness. And we were
right around the corner from Disney.......This was a DREAM VACATION HOME in
every way. The only thing we would have changed was our visit.....WE WISHED
WE COULD HAVE STAYED LONGER. Thanks again, Richard and family.
JB, Oh, USA. Nov 11
We took our
five grandchildren - ages 8-10 (and their parents) to this beautiful home
for the week between Christmas and New Years. The weather was spectacular,
the house was exactly as described and we enjoyed it thoroughly. There is so
much to do in the house that we would never have had to leave it - pool is
beautiful and the hot tub was very much the center of the world for us old
folks.... HOWEVER - the kids insisted on enjoying the sights so we joined
them! Disneyworld and LegoLand are so close! Grocery stores, drug stores -
we even had an urgent care visit. It was truly our home away from home for
the week. The kids got together to say "goodbye" to the pool before they
left. We had a holiday they will always remember. I will definitely
recommend your beautiful home...
Hi Richard, Thank you for this Super Cool
home, perfect for our family.. We have several teenagers who loved the game
room, pool and spa.... We enjoyed so much having breakfast and chatting every
morning in the kitchen area.. everything was very clean and comfortable...
the rooms are more spacious than all of us thought... Thank you!! Thank
you!!! We will return...
CV, USA. Jan 2012
We had an awesome time here! The pool was
great, game room was fun...weather AWESOME. Thanks a bunch!
SH, USA, Jan 2012
We spent 7 days in this nice villa. It’s very
nice home with a lot of spaces that can accommodate big companies. Very
clean, has everything you need, very nice pool and hot tub. This home has
nice and big game room that comes very useful in rainy days. Owner of this
villa is very kind and responsive and we would like to thank him for our
great vacation. We’ll highly recommend renting this villa for your next trip
GB, Boston, USA Jan 12
We had an absolute phenomenal stay at this property. We literally couldn't have asked for a better property. The pool was amazing; the house was beautiful and easy to find; and the location was secluded and peaceful, yet close enough to stores/things to do. The communication from the owner of the property was always clear and concise; we were given instructions for every step of the way, from coming into the the property and leaving the property. When flying across the country to a vacation home, it's natural to be a little worried of what you will walk into. However, because of the clear communication from the property owner, we were not worried in the least. All of our expectations were met and even exceeded. I cannot recommend this property enough. If you are coming to Orlando, book this place!! Our group had such a great time, so much that we have already decided to come back again next year!
Everything we could have asked for!
CH, Il USA Jan 12
family stayed at Vaughan Villa last week, and I can't say enough about how
wonderful this property is! The house is in a nice gated community just a
minute from grocery stores and shopping centers. It has been beautifully
maintained and is well stocked with all of the amenities you need for a
comfortable stay. Our children (we have 5) spent their time away from the
parks either in the home's private pool, which was perfectly heated, or in
the home's game room, which is equipped to be a pre-teen's dream but even
included a ride-on toy for little ones. These two amenities kept our kids
occupied while the adults (4 of us) enjoyed some rest after long days at the
parks. The house is set up nicely to host several families, with multiple
master bedrooms, a bunk room, and two rooms with twin beds. It also has four
nice, full bathrooms, and half-bath at the entrance, and a half-bath by the
pool. There were plenty of towels and wash cloths. The kitchen is stocked
with cookware and dishes that can be used inside and dishes for the pool
area. Everything is in good condition, and the place was immaculately clean.
On our second day there, the property management company called to make sure
everything was up to our standards, and they offered to make reservations or
help us purchase tickets for attractions. I feel comfortable saying that if
we needed anything or had any issues, the property manager would have
addressed them right away. The owner communicated with us multiple times as
we prepared for our vacation and told us everything we needed to know about
the house - directions, toll road preparations, phone numbers, etc. The
house is situated a nice distance from the hustle and bustle of Orlando. It
took us about 20 minutes to get to Disney World, which we didn't mind
because it gave us another opportunity to talk to the kids about what they
were excited about in the morning and gave us a chance to reflect on the
days' events in the evenings! It also proved to be an effective deterrent to
veering from our itinerary and spending too much money at unplanned
attractions! All in all, we made a fantastic decision when we chose this
property for our vacation! We had a conversation with my mother-in-law, who
foolishly decided to stay on Disney property instead of staying with us,
about renting this property next time we visit Orlando, and she said that if
we're staying at this place, then she ABSOLUTELY wants to stay with us!!
GREAT HOUSE FOR FAMILIES AND IT'S NOT TOO FAR FROM ANY OF THE PARKS!
AK, Nc, USA. Feb 2012,
Richard, We had a wonderful time. Took
photos. Unfortunately, lost the camera on an upside down roller coaster. It
must have fallen into water, because they never recovered it. It was a tiny
glitch in an otherwise awesome holiday. Thank you for the use of your home.
The kids loved that pool.
RF, USA Feb 2012
We loved the pool !
DL, St Louis, MS USA Feb 2012
Richard, thank you for providing such a
wonderful vacation home. Our group of 13 was impressed by the size,
cleanness and layout of the house. More than enough space for everyone with
room to spare! The house is close enough to Disney, but far enough away to
have a retreat away from all the action. My kids were complaining about
being at Disney by the middle of the week because they wanted to go back to
the pool which is definitely one of the best in the area. Thank you again
for your quick response to my questions, and for your attention to detail to
make everyone's stay a wonderful one

This is our first experience with staying in
a rental home for lodging accommodations. The description and photos of the
listing accurately reflected the rental's appearance and amenities. The home
and property was beautifully maintain. I especially liked working directly
with the home owner. He negotiated the
contract and was helpful with
everything that we needed. My family loved the pool and hot tub. The
property location was close enough to the resorts but far enough away to get
a rest from all the hubbub. I would highly recommend this listing to all my
friends. The home, location, and amenities near by truly made our dream
vacation come true.
We had a great time. This house
was perfect for our vacation. There were 6 adults and 5 kids and we had
plenty of room. The house was exactly what we were expecting from the
pictures and the website. The pool and hot tub were a huge hit. The beds
were very comfortable (much better than the ones at home). Great location
and easy to find. The owner was wonderful to deal with. Very accomodating
and responded to all questions and comments almost immediately. Would
definitely recommend this house.
We have been here for 5 days so
far and are having a great time. Lots of space for everyone and a great pool
area. Thanks from the Swedes!!
CR, Sweden May 2012
A return visit for the family. Once again, we
had a wonderful time and the TV upgrades and enhanced Games Room were
well appreciated by the kids. The Wi-fi held up well despite our multitude
of devices (one time, we counted up 29 connected devices!). We loved the
pool and hot tub, which were a welcome retreat after the hustle and bustle
of the them parks. Thanks Carl & Richard
LV, Kent UK Easter 2012
We had the
most marvellous time at your house! Our whole stay was perfect. The weather
was really good to us and having that pool was the best!!
The house was
most comfortable for our whole gang. Nice to be able to escape all the
madness of the parks at the end of the day. And that was the best part of
staying there. It felt like a home.
VL, Il, USA May 2012
We just spent 7 days
here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The pool area was great for family
gatherings and the hot tub felt so good after walking all day at Disney. We
came for a wedding at Champions Gate, bit we are so glad we chose this house
over the hotel. So relaxed here with great amenities.
The vacation was wonderful! Everyone
had a good time and the house was great. There were 9 of us - 5 adults
and 4 children ranging in age from 8 to 12. We could not keep
the kids out of the pool!!! First thing in the morning and last thing
at night!! They loved it!! I think they loved the pool
almost more than Disney or Lego Land!!!
Just so you know, the house was
very clean. That is my main criteria!! Everything was great!!
Plenty of room. The weather was perfect while we were there so when we
were not at the parks we were by the pool, so I don't think
any of your electronic equipment was even touched!! The kids did play
some pool and air hockey which was also a great help in keeping them
in all it was a great family vacation experience. It is very apparent that
you take great pride in your property & truly care about your
renters. It is a great vacation home!
SP, USA May 2012
The Gardner family have enjoyed our stay at
your lovely villa. We are very much in awe of this beautiful home. It was
extremely spacious and everyone had their own space. The grandchildren in
particular never wanted to leave the pool area :-) !! the
entire family was very pleased. We found exactly what we've been looking for
when vacationing together!! We thank you for your hospitality!!

We have truly enjoyed our stay
at this wonderful home. It had been home away from home - first time but
will not be our last. The management was great, there were 12 of us, more
than enough room. The home is beautiful, I wanted to stay longer. Thanks so
much for a wonderful stay! The games room and the pool were great
Had a great time, we loved the
house! Perfect fit for all of us.

Thanks Richard, we had a great time. here
is a Picture of the kids enjoying the Games room
Hi Richard, We had a fabulous time. The villa was perfect for us and we
loved everything about it. The pool was great, especially for my son who
loves swimming, well being bounced around pool as he's only 1!
It was a great stay. Everything was as it
stated to be, the process was made easy by the owner. The house had
everything we needed and more. The game room was so much fun as well. We
would recommend this location to any of our friends.
JF, Toronto, Canada Jan 13
Excellent! We had a great time at this home,
it was perfect for our extended family of 14.Some of the best times we had
was sitting around the pool, which is saying a lot since the home is near
Disneyworld. It was everything as advertised and even had some poker chips
in the drawer for a rousing poker game!! I would and have recommended this
place to all my friends and relatives and would definitely stay again
SH, BC, Canada, Jan 13
The home was very spacious and we had plenty
of room for our two families. The kids really loved the pool and spa area.
We found the home to be exactly as pictured on the website. It was well kept
and clean. The management company responded quickly when we contacted them
regarding something minor.
LA, USA Feb 13
holiday was just what we had hoped for. This was our first 'family vacation'
with our boys and their families - and it couldn't have worked out better!
The house exceeded our expectations with loads of room for everyone and the
pool / hot tub were put to good use. With 4 small children in the group, it
was so much better than staying at a hotel and also allowed us the chance to
remove ourselves from the Spring Break crowds after a day at Disney. The
house is close enough to the various attractions in the Orlando/Kissimmee
area to make it easy to drive in a short time frame. I would definitely
recommend this property to any of my friends and hope to have a chance to
return myself. Richard was very helpful during the whole booking process and
was quick to respond to any questions we had - as well as calling personally
during our visit to ensure everything was okay. We definitely had the
priceless experience we were hoping for with our children and grandchildren
- who we don't get to see often enough due to the distance between our
LV, Texas, USA Mar 13
Richard and Carl - we had a fantastic time
here. The villa has an excellent range of facilities and communication has
been 1st class.
LR, London, UK Feb 13
Excellent time! Love teh back
yard, lots of seating for all of us. Centrally located to all the fun.
We had a wonderful vacation
in your villa. Thank you for sharing it with us. We spent most of our time
at the pool and hot tub. it was so nice to have ample loungers and chairs.
The villa was very spacious for our 3 families and so nice to have 3 King
Beds for the adults. It was a quiet relaxing place to stay after visiting
the crowds and bustle of the parks and spring break traffic.
BK, USA and Netherlands, Apr 13
We had a blast!!!! This place is gorgeous, clean and well kept,
just as described. The owner was very kind and personable, his main concern
was our comfort and well being. House is very secure in a quiet gated
community. We not only enjoyed the beauty of the home but also the privacy.
Your home is truly the crown jewel of the tower lake area. We had three
families there with plenty of room to spare, we loved it! Close to many area
attractions, on our 20 or so minute car rides to and from Disney we would
discuss what we would do or did do that day. The drive was nice family time.
Beautiful place, will definitely stay there again. Thank you so much for a
fantastic space to have our vacation.
We just spent 9 days at this house in May of 2013. The place
was great. It is in a very nice looking neighbourhood and easy to find. With
the gated community, and also the alarm system on the house, all assures you
that you are all very secure. What you see in the pictures, is actually what
you get. Well cleaned and maintained. Location was very good. Only a few
minutes drive from the large Publix (grocery store etc...) and only a minute
or so from Dunkin Donuts (morning coffee for those of us who would rather
not make it ourselves, which you can still do at the house if you wish). The
house was relatively close to Disney, and Universal, as well as the Outlet
Stores. The 8 of us travelled as 2 families (4 + 4) with both families
having kids ages 6 and 9 respectively, and everyone loved it. Enough space
for the two families not to get in each other's way and step on each others
toes, and we still didn't even use all of the bedrooms. Plenty of cupboard
space and closet room for whatever you need. Also, this is one of the few
locations with a BBQ grill so that was an added bonus. Kids had great time
in pool and games room after long days at the theme parks, and parents had
any easy time supervising while on the pool deck. Plenty of pool toys and
towels. Lots of pool deck space, seating and loungers. The small bathroom on
the pool deck was really great to avoid soaking the house when required. As
for the property management company, it was great as well. We called once to
get the "heater timer" changed to be a different time of day (as we spent
days at the parks), and there was a person there to do it in less than 15
minutes, and he was very nice and polite when he came and looked after it in
2 minutes. Would we return again? Absolutely. I'm not quite sure where the
house compares in price to other properties in the area, but there is
nothing I can say that the place was missing in terms of looks, convenience,
and overall comfort. Not once, did anyone say "I wish this house had..." The
procedure of inquiring about the property was also very easy, and arranging
the dates and payment was a breeze.
JE, Canada May 13
I just wanted
to say thanks for making our vacation great. Awesome experience in a house
that was everything I expected and more. We really enjoyed our stay and
hope to come back soon! Again thanks for making this a vacation to remember!
We were quite pleased. The house is about 15 minutes from Disney and about 30 minutes from Universal. We were a party of 11 (age ranges 19 to 82). Sleeping accommodations were fine. Beds are comfortable. House was very clean, carpets clean, etc. Great pool and tub. Did not use the game room, but it was well equipped and would be great for younger children. Accurate presentation and description. Definitely recommend.
BR, USA, May 13
Property was as advertised. Very nice. We had
10 people in our group and had plenty of room. Great pool
SS, Ne, USA May 13
were a group of six adults renting the property for a relaxing 5 night
vacation. The pictures on the website are an accurate representation of the
property. We spent nearly all of our time in the pool and hot tub which was
outstanding! There is a Walmart less than 5 minutes away. We used the grill
almost daily to cook meals. If you feel like leaving the house for an
evening, Downtown Disney was about a 20 minute drive. The game room provide
us entertainment during a rain storm and all the other amenities listed are
available. Great value for the property you are renting. Also like to say
that the owner of the property is outstanding to work with. Very prompt in
responses to your questions and I truly feel that he wants to make sure you
have a outstanding experience.
Had a great time
WW, Tn, USA Jun 13
The vacation was excellent and
the house was perfect. It was exactly like the photos said it would be and
more! We hope to come back again sometime, thank you so much for making our
vacation so wonderful.
impression on entering the home was, "WOW, we made the right choice." The
pool area is the nicest of all the homes we have rented. It was used
constantly. Stunning! The bathrooms, bedrooms, game room all very nice.
Communication with the owner, Richard, before, during, and after has been
excellent. He responds to questions very quickly. My wife and I moved from
Ohio to Louisiana 3 years ago and our family, including grandchildren, still
live in Ohio. This was a family Christmas present last year to allow us to
spend a week together without the interruptions of daily life. It was
perfect. I highly recommend this home.
was beautiful and an amazing place! We truly enjoyed staying in your home.
It was warm, friendly, and very comfortable place to stay! It was exactly
how Richard described the distance from villa to Disney, and Universal
Studio. Everything was perfect!! We highly recommend this beautiful home!!
Our family of eleven people
(plus two more one night) stayed at this wonderful villa for four nights
while we were visiting Disney World. It was well equipped for children and
also for babies. We all felt we had our own space with the layout of the
bedrooms and our grandchildren were happy with the pool and all the things
available for kids or adults. The owner was very responsive to any needs we
had. We would highly recommend this villa.

so much for the use of your villa. we used the grill outside a lot.
CS, USA Jul 13
Richard, We have returned home this morning after what has been a great
holiday. Your villa is truly wonderful with an amazing pool and a much used
Games Room - we had table tennis tournaments most days! Once again, I would
like to express how very much we enjoyed staying in your villa and will
certainly recommend to all my friends.

Great stay!! Lots of fun had by all

great. Thank you so much!!
Whalen Family. Ontario Canada. July 13
A massive thank
you to you both for letting us stay in this fantastic house! Both the pool
and games room were a massive hit, not to mention the Xbox, playstation and
the 2 Wii’s. Endless hours of fun and relaxation spent here! Loved how close
it was to all the parks and shopping outlets. Cant wait to come back again
DV, Kent UK Sep 13
Thanks to my brothers
Carl and Richard for letting us share your wonderful villa. Fully equipped
with everything you will ever need, pool, games room etc. Conveniently
located in a peaceful gated community away from all the hustle and bustle
and so inviting when you return from the parks, shopping and retail outlets.
PV, Kent UK Sep 13
The house was large enough to accommodate our group of 12. Access to all the attractions was great. We really enjoyed our stay. Would stay here again! And Richard was great to deal with, answering any questions we had promptly.
MS, USA Oct 13
Richard, our final night is upon us and just want to say thanks again
and we are already planning our 3rd visit. The villa is perfect for a group
our size and very comfortable. Thanks again and I will be in touch with the
next booking date.
GP, Scotland, Netherlands. Oct 13
have been better! Richard loved chatting to you!
What a wonderful and
beautiful home to share with families! Plenty of room, plenty of bathrooms
and the pool was the perfect end to every day for our family! Clean, well
stocked, comfortable and fit our family stay completely!
Perfect in every way and like Arnie said “we’ll be back !“ Thanks for a
fabulous place to land!
MA, UT, USA Nov 2013
I rented this villa
for a week and have to say from the moment I dropped my bags in I felt at
The property is really well decorated and the owners have clearly taken the time to explain where everything is and how it works!
I found the complex really nice also and have to say going for a run every day I reckon I came back to the best house! I had really good weather in November so I have spent most of my time by the pool, which is a great size and attracts the sun in the morning and early afternoon for this time of year. I would recommend anyone thinking of coming to Florida to stay here and it is local to the parks and also restaurants and shopping malls.
A star in my book!
MC, KENT, UK Nov 2013
The house has
everything that you would need with your stay in Orlando. The house was
exactly as pictured and in great condition. There was an issue with the hot
tub and it was taken care of immediately and the gentleman who fixed it was
very nice. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone. It is a great
price, not far from Disney/Universal, etc. and close to stores and/or
restaurants. We will stay here on our next visit to Orlando.
KM, USA Dec 2013
Our family of 13 had a wonderful time in this spacious villa. There was plenty of room for all the adult-sized people. The 6 adult-aged "children" (as well as the other adults) had a great time using the game room, warm pool and jacuzzi. The villa's kitchen had all the utensils we needed to cook our meals during our stay. There is a Walmart around the corner and many grocery stores and pharmacies within 5-10 minutes. The location is perfect for nearby golf courses, Disney(20 min.) and the airport in Orlando.(40 min.) The villa was very clean and the pictures which seem too good to be true, really depict the villa as it is in real life. The neighborhood was quiet and several of us walked/jogged on a regular basis. I would definitely recommend this beautiful house to anyone visiting the Orlando area and looking for all the comforts of home and more!
SH, USA Dec 2013
We celebrated a wonderful family reunion and
a special 70th birthday in the home. We had 8 adults and 4 children in our
party and never felt cramped for space. There were plenty of dishes and
clean towels for everyone. It took us about 25 minutes to get into the
parking lot of DisneyWorld and 35 minutes to get to Universal. The house is
located in a quiet neighborhood that is very well maintained. I would
AR, USA Dec 2013
Hi Richard, We have
enjoyed ourselves in your lovely home this week. The house has a wonderful
layout and it has been decorated tastefully. The lot is nice and we felt
like we had good privacy. Our kids loved the time we had in the pool and we
enjoyed hopping in the jacuzzi after the kids wee down, after a long day at
Disney. You have been so nice to work with and again appreciate you allowing
us to stay in your home!
KC, USA Jan 2014
We all had a wonderful
vacation! Your villa is beautiful, we had a great time in the pool and using
your Games room! Everything we needed to make the vacation complete was
here! Thank you so much!!
SR, Canada Jan 14
Richard, We had a wonderful time. The house is lovely! The kids enjoyed the
pool and the adults enjoyed the spacious surroundings. It was very cold, we
were expecting balmy 70's but it was windy and in the 40's which made it
feel icy at night in the parks. We had fun anyway! Here is a photo of the
kids in the steamy pool - they didn't mind the cold..
GB, USA Jan 14
We had a great time. As I mentioned, we had my 86 yr. old
mother together with all of her kids for the first time in a very long time.
We were also celebrating my brother’s 60th. The house was great!.
The crowd wasn’t really too interested in doing a lot, so it was mostly
lounging around. So we really enjoyed the space the house gave us, the
flexibility (and ease) of having some meals in, and of course the pool area.
As you suggested on the phone, the way you have this laid out works great.
I’ll also say that the maintenance guy who came around was also excellent.
This was our first time visiting Florida and this was a great
place to stay. It was very nice and the pool area is really big!! It was a
good central place to stay as it’s within a short drive to either coast and
beaches and all the theme parks. Also close to Manny's chop house which has
the best and cheapest steaks on earth!! It was so nice to have a big house
with a pool and hot tub to relax in after busy fun days.
We had a wonderful family vacation – thoroughly enjoying the
pool, games room and spacious house along with the local attractions.
Beautiful house! Our family of 10 spent 13 nights here - 6 adults and 4
children ranging in age from 2 to 12. The house was perfect for our family -
it was very roomy allowing everyone to have their own space. The pool was a
huge hit and was used everyday - having the ping pong table in the pool area
is an added bonus! Wanna come back next year! Thank you for letting us stay
in your amazing house! Thanks Richard for being so responsive to my
The house was more than we expected. We had a great time.
LB, USA Mar 14
This is a very nice home in a very nice quiet area. It is an
ideal place to stay as its a little over an hour drive to beaches on each
coast and close to all the theme parks. There was 3 couples in our group and
the house was large enough to feel like we all had our own space. Whether
coming back from theme parks or exploring, the hot tub and pool were so
relaxing and rejuvenating it was amazing. And Manny's chop house is close by
for the best steak in the world at a cheap price. This place is awesome

atmosphere was perfect for all.
of us. The pool, games room, and location to all parks
was perfect. Thank you for an amazing week!! I've stayed at the park before
and I prefer this house. Having a great place with large bedrooms; hot tub;
pool etc... Was great to wind down after a long day. The game room was
excellent. Couldn't be happier. Gated community; I could go on; and I will;
place was immaculate. This deserves 10 stars not just five. The owner is
great too; we will definitely reserve this again; no doubt. 6 bedrooms;
plenty of dishes; towels; it's like your home. Great patio; oh and ping
pong. The best of the best in every way; and very fairly priced too. Quiet
had an amazing holiday and this villa was perfect. The jauczzi and pool area
was brilliant. The villa was clean and everything we needed. We hope to be
back in the future (my 2nd time already as I was here 7 years ago as a
LP, UK May 14
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was beautiful, with
everything you could want or need on your trip. We stayed with three
teenagers, as well as older parents and siblings. There was plenty of room,
and we all enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and game room. The house was located a
reasonable distance to all of the parks, and within a gated community. The
pool and hot tub were relaxing after spending the day in the parks. we would
highly recommend this house to friends and family.
AE, USA Jun 14
A great place to stay for our large family.
We had a great time in our week of July 2014, in addition to the theme
parks, this "home" was perfect for rest and play. Our best recommendations.
MI, Norway and Florida. Jul 14
We had a wonderful time
in this beautiful and very very comfortable home. So much room and
everything we needed was provided. We visited Disney and Sea World but we
especially enjoyed staying at home, paying in the pool and being together.
Thank you !
pictures of this villa look great, when you pull up
drive and walk in...WOW!!!! The
owner describes the villa as 'Stunning' and it certainly is and more.
Everything is how it should be and there is everything you need. Its easy to
get to from the airport, easy to get to all the theme parks and only a 2
minute drive to Walmart. The games room we didn't bother with but it was
packed with stuff to keep the children entertained. The pool area is fab, it
isn't overlooked which is usually the case I've found with villas and big
enough to sit around. After a busy day its great to have such a nice pool to
play around in, the kids loved it. The A/C worked great, if anything it
worked too well but the weather was hot and humid so a nice relief after
being out in the sun all day. Its a gated community so its very safe and the
security on the gate are really friendly. The villa is great for big groups.
Bad points....none. I can't think of any. I
would definitely recommend this villa.
Where do I start....... The Villa was amazing, very
comfortable, very homely with facilities to suit all needs. The Table tennis
was great and the pool was a perfect temperature. The hot tub was fantastic
which was enjoyed on many occasions especially in the evening.
There was so much to do the villa is located just a short drive to Florida’s many attractions, including; theme parks, water parks, shopping and not to mention the many mouth watering steak houses.
Highly recommended suitable for everybody offering the option to relax or do something different everyday
MR, UK Aug 14
Dear Richard, Thank you for allowing us to stay in your
beautiful home. We have stayed in many places in Florida over the last 10
years but your villa is the best by far. We will certainly be looking to
book this every year! Whilst the pictures are great, the simply can't do
your place justice. The location was perfect- 20 minutes form everything we
need to do. The house had every amenity we could hope for and more, the
outside pool area was so nice that we spent most of our days out there! The
place is perfect for kids and the golf courses in close proximity were
amazing. Your contact throughout our stay has been so thorough so we look
forward to speaking you soon booking our stay for next year! It's great to
have a place now we can trust excels all our expectations.
CD, UK, Sep 14
Fantastic house and relaxing environment
to spend 10 days on the sun. We had a large crowd, and never felt too
cramped. The table tennis and pool area were occupied pretty much all of our
waking hours, apart form when we were at the shops. So many delicious places
to eat nearby, the obvious ones being the steakhouses! We found a great Thai
restaurant in Celebration - try the Firehouse hot! Loved the holiday. Great
house, great stay!
Sep 14, 2nd visit for the 6 of us!

Hi Richard, We all had a great time. My five young kids were

didn't realise we wouldn't see you so the security guards on the gate got
them hee hee

food and drinking beer and wine. Great time had by all.
5 children all happy! 4

luxury to meet all of our needs. Fantastic, we loved it!!

your beautiful home with us. We had a fantastic time. Comfy beds and kids
loved the pool area, everything has been thought of, attention to detail.
Don’t want to go home!!
extended family of 10 stayed here for 10 days. The house fit our needs
perfectly, everyone had their own space and it was great to be able to come
back to after busy days at the parks. The kids loved the pool!! The property
is very well maintained, and the owner is quick to respond to any questions.
We would definitely stay at this property again
House is great.
We love the pool especially since it is so hot.

stay there again.
