We have just returned from a 17 night stay at 221 Balmoral Court in Ashley Manor.
Nearly everything about this villa was outstanding.
The villa was clean and very well appointed and was more than big enough for our party of four adults and two children aged 8 and 6. The layout was exactly as advertised.
All of the rooms were very spacious and the villa was stocked with little extras that make a difference. These included a dvd player plus a selection of family dvds. It also had a pool table and table tennis table. The outside pool was well stocked with "pool" toys and the two boys spent many happy hours in the pool.
Most of the white goods were fairly new and all worked very well.
The villa is well located for the attractions being a twenty / twenty five minute drive from all of the Disney attractions and some 35 minutes from Seaworld / Universal. It is some seven minutes drive away from Interstate 4 . It is about a 35 minute drive away from Orlando airport.
There is a well priced petrol / gas station located two minutes from the villa. In addition,there are two large supermarkets and a number of good restaurants within a ten minute drive away.
We only had two very minor niggles. The first was:
The cable tv was based around Tampa and so it was not possible to get local (Orlando) news, weather and travel updates.
The second related to the non slip surface on the bottom of the swimming pool. When my grandchildren had been in the pool for some time, the rough surface took the skin of their toes causing some bleeding. This was easily alleviated by wearing socks or reef waders. It might be useful to have a notice advising that some people might have a problem.
These were truly very minor niggles and overall the villa was excellent. We would have no hesitation in staying there again on any return trip to Orlando and would strongly recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for a villa stay in the Orlando area.
