With a comfy sofa and chair, multiple end tables, lamps, and a desk, this room is a great multi-use room for a quiet escape. This room also has a ceiling fan for added comfort.

About Mindy and James Gentz (Owners of Pastoral Palms Villa)

Both my husband and I grew up in families where spending time in Florida was a common family vacation. As teachers, we have the opportunity to get away for extended periods of time over the summer as well as for shorter periods at the holidays. Being from Michigan, we love to get out of the cold and escape to the Florida sun in the winter. In the summer we love the heat, so Florida is a great choice! We frequently travel to the Orlando area because it has so much to offer. We love that we can have lazy days by the pool if we choose, just taking in a book and the sun. We also love that there are things to satisfy every interest just minutes away. Some of our favorite things to do while in the area are visiting the theme parks, shopping, playing golf and enjoying the great restaurants. We also like to try new things and have once in a lifetime experiences! Some of our favorites have been hot air ballooning, kayaking trips, and space shuttle launches! As we frequently travel with family and friends, having a vacation home allows everyone to be together, yet have their own space and privacy when they need it.

Mindy and James Gentz (Owners of Pastoral Palms Villa) purchased this villa in 2011

Why Mindy and James Gentz (Owners of Pastoral Palms Villa) chose Wildflower Ridge

We began renting homes in Florida for our vacations in the late 90s. After several years we decided we should look into getting a place of our own and began causally looking in 2006. When the real estate market crashed in 2008, we were ready to take advantage of the situation and actively began searching for our dream home in 2009. With the help of our realtor, we looked at over 250 homes from December 2009 through December 2010.

Pastoral Palms caught my eye on one of my real estate shopping trips in March of 2009. I knew the moment I saw it, that it was the ONE! It was everything we wanted! The neighborhood was small and quiet. The home was is great shape. It had a large pool deck with a spa and covered lanai! The floor plan was great-- exactly what we had been looking for. When I made my next 'shopping' trip, I told my husband 'if it is still on the market--we are putting in an offer'. It was then I found the home was off the market--temporarily! After seeing the home, my husband agreed--we had to have it! In July we put in the offer and waited only to find out they accepted another. Devastated, we went back to searching for a property. In October, the home came back on the market! A second chance! In November we were again told another offer had been accepted. In December we made another 'shopping' trip, ready to put down an offer on something--after all it had been a year of looking! After our first day of viewing properties, we had a couple we could settle for but nothing special. On December 23 our Realtor called and said 'Merry Christmas, the other offer fell through and yours has been accepted!' This was the best Christmas present EVER! In the end, what sold us on this home was the quiet location, the floor plan, the premium lot, and my favorite--the view from the pool deck!

Perfect! Just perfect!

  • 5 out of 5
This villa was remarkable in almost every way. Clean, spacious and well equipped. It included extra touches that were really nice such as pool toys and a box of household and grocery items. Helpful labels everywhere. The bedrooms were all very spacious. The split floor plan enabled our two families to be comfortably close yet afforded private space. The linens and bath towels are top quality and included pool towels. The location was good, only around 20 mins to Disney. Easily accessible to I4. A Publix supermarket is about 5 mins away. The "Owner's manual" had a lot of helpful information and tips to enjoy the area.
The owners are very friendly and are genuinely interested in you enjoying your stay. We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone.

Fabulous Villa, Friendly owners

  • 5 out of 5
This villa was even better than the photos show!
We have stayed in 3 Orlando area villas and this was the best by far. Extremely clean, spacious and well equipped, and a really peaceful and private pool area.
It included extra touches that were really nice such as pool inflatables etc for the kids to use, barbecue, and a box of household and grocery items left by previous guests that could be used, eg shampoo and aluminium foil.
The bedrooms were all very spacious with comfortable beds and quality linens, and a cupboard full of spare towels and linens.
The locations was great, only around 20 mins to Disney, a bit longer to Universal, but all easily accessible. A large Publix supermarket is about 5 mins away,
James and Mindy were very professional in the booking process and friendly when we spoke to them.
Would definitely recommend this villa to anyone.

Fantastic villa in a very nice quiet surrounding.

  • 5 out of 5
Probably the best Villa we have ever stayed in, the pictures don't do the rooms justice. The level of cleanliness couldn't be faulted, and the storage room for clothes and luggage is huge. Everything you will need for your stay is supplied in the property, all the information you need to getting to the property , then getting into it and what to do whilst there , up to when you leave is provided before you arrive and is perfectly understandable. The Villa itself is situated just 15-20 minutes from Disney just a short drive to the I4 to connect you to all the surrounding attractions. The Publix supermarket is only 5 minutes away to gather all your vacation supplies.
The area the Villa is in is a lovely quiet estate which is perfect for your wind down after a long day, the rural views from the pool deck are a nice bonus, with the local wildlife on view. The owners were very easy to deal with and all the financial transactions were as smooth as could be hoped, James called us on several occasions to ensure we had everything we needed and made sure we knew he was available if we needed anything or had any problems. When we return to Orlando again we won't hesitate to book this place up again, definitely a home from home.
Just a little heads up, we stayed for 12 days in the first week of April and didn't think we would need the pool heat, but after a couple of days we realised it was needed, and we were so glad we did, the difference was incredible, again we just let James and Mindy know and it was sorted straight away. Thanks for a great stay

Perfect in every way!!!

  • 5 out of 5
I can not say enough wonderful things about this house, it's location, and the owners. The house is just as the pictures show. The house is extremely well cared for, and has all the amenities that anyone would need. It was an easy 15 minute drive from Disney, and it was so nice to come home to this quiet house after a long day at the parks. The owners were fantastic and always available to answer questions. I would highly recommend this property to others in the future!!!!!

Perfect three generation Florida Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed 10 days in the Davenport home, and had a wonderful time. There were 7 total making up three generations, the 2 master suites were lovely for the adults and the other 2 bedrooms were great for the 3 grandchildren. The pictures are exactly what you are getting and the security system was great knowing if one of the kids went out to the pool we would be alerted by the security system. The home is very clean, comfortable and large, enough room to spread out even with 7 people. Our grandchildren loved the pool and hot tub we did pay for the pool heat which is necessary for Jan. in Florida we had a few nights get down in the 30's, the adults loved the hot tub in the evening also after walking miles a day in the parks. It only takes about 15 minutes to get to the Disney parks. We don't get to Orlando very often but I would recommend this home to anyone visiting the Orlando area.

Perfect place

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay was a wonderful experience. The house is better than in the pictures and exceeded our expectations. The rooms are large, well decorated and comfy with all the amenities one may need. The location of the house and orientation is perfect with plenty of sunshine on the pool deck most of the day. The area is quiet and relaxing. The pool and hot tub was a nice feature to have.

James and Mindy, the owners, were always available, and quick, to answer our questions. They truly care about their house and their guests.

We strongly recommend this villa and we will definitely go back!
