We loved the setting: next to Shingle Creek park, surrounded by tropical trees and bushes with lots of wildlife (colourful butterflies, squirrels, birds including a hawk, and eagles flying over). The villa is large, well equipped (including lots and lots of towels and face cloths) and furnished in a colonial style (far more interesting than the usual fairly bland Florida villa). We made good use of the pool (being late October we did pay extra for heating it) and appreciated the hot tub. Great colour effects when you switch the lights on at night in the pool and tub! This was our 7th visit to Florida so we focused on non-Disney. Our favourites were Shingle Creek park just down the road, the Boggy Creek airboat ride (real alligators!), the Osteology Museum, the Charles Hosmer Morse museum for the great Tiffany glass collection and in St Petersburg the amazing Dali museum. All in all we recommend the villa and the location. Would happily stay there again.
We had a great stay at this property. My only downside would be the rules book it was like you were scared to do stuff in case you lost your deposit. Pool Area was great well secure. We would definetly stay there again. The management and owner are very willing to help out in anyway
