About Steve Haydon
We are a couple from Northern Ireland, 2 grown up children living in England, Have been travelling to the U.S from 1995 once or twice a year. We also have a cabin in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
Steve Haydon purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Steve Haydon chose Four Corners
Loved the area, It was quite remote when we bought on this new development, it is a rural area but very close to shops and restaurants etc. close to Disney but quiet enough for a very relaxing holiday. The development is well looked after and maintained to a high standard. There are many amenities in and around the area
What makes this Villa unique
very relaxing, close to clubhouse with activities for children. and within easy walking distance of major shops and restaurants, bars and other activities. Disney is very easy to get to from here.

Solar heated pool, fabulous villa!
My family had a fabulous fortnight at this villa, would highly recommend to anyone looking for a villa rental. Great communication and advice from Steve the owner. I cant see anyone could be disappointed with what this home offers
Thank you for your kind review, It was a pleasure having you stay and i am so glad you had a good time
The overall stay was very nice we enjoyed the house and pool. The one thing were not happy with were the beds. They had about two inches of foam over the mattress not good for a good night sleep. Other than that everything was enjoyable we would consider staying again if mattress were replaced.
Thank you for your review
The foam on top of the mattresses (King and Queen beds) is a memory foam topper. These have been on them for 2 years and i have had compliments on them and the comfort of the beds, i appreciate people have different ideas of these.
Very Nice Stay at Portabello
We very much enjoyed our stay at this luxury villa. My entire family spent many hours in the pool and spa, as we had planned at least two days of down time and relaxation around the house. We found the kitchen to be well stocked with utensils, pots and pans, silverware, etc. We did have to purchase trash bags, paper towels, dish soap and we chose to get paper plates for convenience. We hoped to pass these items on to the next renters by leaving them in the pantry. The bedrooms and bathrooms we very nice and comfortable. We had six people in all and there was plenty of room for everyone. The large tubs in the bathrooms were nice to take a hot soak in after a long day at the parks! The property is located within easy access to Disney and Universal, there is also a large outdoor mall that is close by. You should plan roughly 45 minutes to get to the parks based on traffic though, the commute back and forth is pretty busy. Thank you Hayden's for sharing your property, this is the way to visit central Florida!!
Thank you very much for your review, It is much appreciated.
I am glad that you had an enjoyable time.
Regarding the trash bags and dish soap, Items such as these are provided to start you off but are not re supplied during stays. A lot of garbage is normally disposed directly into the recycle bin ( I hope) which should not leave too much for regular disposal, food can be disposed of via the waste disposal and some guests just use the copious amounts of bags built up from visits to Wal Mart etc.
Thank you again and i look forward to having you stay in the future.
Beautiflul home away from home!
A beautiful home, we had a great time! Our two grandsons were with us and they loved the pool, hot tub and especially the game room. We all enjoyed lounging by the pool and the privacy of the hedges around the pool. It is close to everything we wanted to see while there. Thanks again for everything, Clif, Judi, Noah and Jacob
Hi Clif & Judi

Our Florida Vacation Getaway
This was a beautiful home in a great location and the owner is fantastic at responding to emails, but the property manager needs to make sure it receives some TLC. The pool screen was ripped so the pool had a bunch of dead bugs and debris and the pool/hot tub was not heated. The living room wall had no power, there were ants everywhere, most light bulbs in the lamps were burned out and the dryer takes a very long time to dry clothes. There were no supplies ie: toilet paper, dish soap, paper towels or garbage bags. But we did have a great time and created a lot of great memories
Thanks for the review, First, i am glad that you enjoyed your stay.
I would like to address the comments made. The pool screen is a material that eventually breaks down with the elements, Being a South facing pool area the sun is on it all day and it does deteriorate, high wind is usually the cause of it ripping. These screen panels are always replaced once reported to the management company.
The Pool/Hot tub was not heated because the guest did not request pool heating, The solar heating is free but only good from March to October.
I have never had a complaint of ants before but imagine that the cause of this is food has been dropped somewhere to encourage them
If there are any problems such as lighting not working, a call to the management company will resolve this, They were never contacted about any problems.
The dryer has now been reported and will be checked, i suspect the cause may be the heating element
Toilet paper, soap, kitchen towels and a garbage bag is provided before each guest arrives, however, we do not continually supply these during the guests stay.
Clean and comfortable.
My family and I had a wonderful time in Florida. Having a home that we were comfortable in made it that much more pleasurable. Close to everything!
Thank you very much for taking the time to submit this review, It is very much appreciated and i am so glad you enjoyed you're stay
Thank you again

Additional pricing information
$990 - $1293 / week Low Season (January, February, September, November & December): $990/week Mid Season (March - June): $1073 / week High Season (July, August & October): $1210 / week Holidays (Easter & Christmas): $1293 / week $85 cleaning fee Pool heat is available at $140 / week (winter time, otherwise free ) Some general information for guests Pool heat is available and recommended for the period between November and March. It is possible due to the weather that extra heating may not be required, Please note that if the outside air temp drops below 50 degrees the pool heater will not function, this is not a fault and no refund will be given as the weather is beyond our control. The spa can not be heated independently of the pool,however, by switching over to the spa when in use the heat is diverted. This is not a hot tub and will not reach temperatures of a hot tub.A gas BBQ is provided free of charge ( most owners do not provide this and have guests hire one) Cleaning of this is the responsibility of the guests using it, It is not the cleaners responsibility and they will not clean it. If the BBQ is left un cleaned i can not be held responsible and no refund will be given as there is no charge, I am not sure if the best way to please every one is to clean after you or clean before you use, at least then in my opinion it will get cleaned and may be a better system. As stated, there is no smoking in the house, this should now be normal procedure anywhere you may be. There is also a strict no pets policy, under no circumstances will pets be allowed at any time. This is for the benefit of guests who may have pet allergies etc. If you do have a problem when you arrive at the home or during your stay, Please contact the management company so that they can at least have the chance to rectify the matter, do not complain to them after your stay as no refund will be given.
