Hi Gordon

We have just had such a wonderful holiday staying in your 2 gorgeous villas, they are both beautiful, very high standards and everything was spot on, we couldn't of asked for more, the location is excellent and you were a pleasure to deal with! We will definitely be coming back to you again and I have passed your website to a few friends, thank you so much again.

Hi Gordon

I have been meaning to get in touch with you since we returned from our holiday at your lovely Portafino villa but alas I have not had the time, so here I am now saying how much my whole family enjoyed their stay at Portafino, it was truly a delight. I believe that every member of my family including my 6 year old Grandson felt that the villa was the highlight of their holiday and just wish that we could have stayed longer. We are already talking about returning to Orlando in 2014nd will most certainly be looking you up Once again thank you for making our holiday so special with your wonderful villa.

Regards John

Dear Gordon:

Thanks for everything.

Deb

Hi Gordon

I have been meaning to send you a note to thank you for our stay in your beautiful Portafino home in Florida - we all had a great time and your house exceeded our expectations - I trust everything was in order when we left - Thanks again and perhaps when we go down there again we can have another visit.

Glenn and Marit Jones and family.

What makes this house unique

Review #13814474 uxury Home Only 10 Mins From Disney





Absolutely Perfect

★ ★ ★ ★ ★



I have traveled to the Disney area several times a year for at least the last 10 years. I always rent a house or condo and I am very familiar with most rental experiences. I was extremely impressed at this rental. It was impressive from the day I got there until I left. The owner stayed in constant contact with me before the trip and all the way through the trip back home. This was impressive due to the fact that they live in the U K



First the description of the house and amenities, does little justice to what you actually experience. The house itself was great, The pool was great, The master bedroom and its private bathroom with garden tub and glass door shower for 2 was WOW, great to say the least.



Second, the beds themselves was great and comfortable. I have rented from others that had mattresses that where terrible quality and seem like 50 years old with stains.......Not at this house, theses where clean and comfortable. There was a huge selection of bedding, sheets, pillowcases, and blankets. There was at least 40 or 50 bath towels. The location was great, Just far enough from the parks that it felt like home rather than in a tourist area.



After renting a house or condo over 25 times.......

I would have to say I would rate this a 10 out of 10 and would not hesitate to rent from them again.

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

What to say about Portofino other than it was our 'home from home' for the 2 weeks we were there. The location is fantastic, close to shops, theme parks, outlet villages, restaurants - everything is within easy reach. Usually when we're away over Christmas we are in a hotel and don't quite feel 'homely', however at Portofino our family felt so at home, with the large lounge to all cuddle up together in to watch our usual 'It's a Wonderful Life' on Christmas Eve. We even asked Gordon prior to our visit if there was a Christmas tree that we could use - he had one along with lights and decorations!

Thank you Gordon for your quick responses to all of our questions! Your villa is beautiful where we had a magical Christmas and we can't wait to get back out there again at some point!

Fantastic home from home villa. Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Portafina for us was just fantastic all you could ask for when travelling so far.

Situated within Calabay Parc where local amenities are a 2 minute drive for supermarket,Restraunts and takeaways.

20 minute drive and your within disney and International drive areas also easy for getting to either coast whether port canaveral or the sunny sands of the Gulf.

Portafina is a gem after hours at the parks,shopping or travelling around Orlando it's great to return to the villa kick back and chill in pool or spend time playing air hockey/pool within the games room or just relax in lounge area watching T.V..

Florida is a great place and staying in portafina makes it a little more special.

Many Thanks

Excellent - surpassed expectations

  • 5 of 5

After reading the reviews about Portofino prior to booking, I had high expectations and I wasn’t disappointed.

Portofino is very spacious, clean, comfortable, very well maintained and has every amenity you require to provide you with a wonderful, peaceful environment after a long day at the Parks. From cupboards overflowing with towels to a very well equipped large kitchen /dining room to spacious poolside bedrooms with en-suite. Two smaller bedrooms share an additional family bathroom. A very comfortable lounge with TV and games leads to the lovely pool with hot tub and a patio area for poolside dinners. In addition there is great games room with a pool table.

All this and a location that for us was perfect. Quiet residential area which is directly alongside the North/South running 27 which is a five minute access time to the I4 leading direct to Disney 25mins or Universal 35 mins and I’m a slow driver.

5 mins down the 27 north is a Publix supermarket within the Berrytown complex (turn left into Sand Mine Road) together with a smokers shop, a pizza place (eat in or take away) which served very good pizzas by very friendly staff, Applebys and an iHop where we ate on many occasions and can recommend for service and value.(You can check menus on line before you go). There is also a petrol station.

Another 5mins on continuing North past the junction for the 192 there is a further complex with fast food outlets, Burgerking,Kentucky, Taco Bell and a very large Walmart supermarket. On the opposite side of the road heading back is a Macdonalds.

Just a couple of tips you may find useful: As Portofino is in Orista Drive it is easier to use the 4 Corners exit/entrance rather than the Calabray Parc exit/entrance. Careful too with SatNav as ours showed an Orista Drive in Orlando as well as this Orista Drive in Davenport so make sure you select the latter.

Communication with the owner was great and on the one occasion we had need to contact the Management company the service was outstanding.

We had a great time in Orlando made even better by staying at Portofino.

A perfect rental property near everything.

  • 5 of 5

To begin, this home is located in a very quiet neighborhood within minutes of anything you may need. It is extremely comfortable and has all the necessary amenities for your stay. From a fully furnished kitchen, comfortable beds and furniture, and private pool and spa, this property is perfect for one and all.

Thank you Gordon for allowing me to stay in your home and I hope to return again for a future rental.

Great villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The location of the villa is great with easy access to the I4 for a short drive to Disney. We'd often drive home via the 192 where all of our favourite restaurants are. The villa itself was lovely - very clean, comfortable and well maintained. It had all the facilities we needed - and more, and being seasoned visitors, we expect a lot! The outlook from the pool was nice, and it was incredibly quiet. Communication with Gordon was always good - from the time we first spoke about the rental to whilst we were staying there. We had to contact Gordon once for a minor issue, which he bent over backwards to resolve for us quickly and effectively - I couldn't ask any more from a customer service point of view. Thanks for a wonderful holiday!

Thanks Gordon, We had a fantastic holiday celebrating my 40th birthday. The villa was wonderful and accomadated eight easily,lots of room to allow us all to have our own space if we needed it. The villa was clean and well equipped for all our needs during our stay. The kids loved the pool and the games room it was a perfect holiday, I'm sure we will be back, and will definitely recommend it to other thinking of having a holiday in Florida Xx

Calabay Parc is a prestigious development located to the west of Walt Disney World, on Highway 27 between Interstate 4 and Highway 192, in the heart of what must be one of the most exciting holiday destinations in the world. It is an immaculately maintained community consisting of a variety of 3 - 5 bedroom luxury villas, all with private pools and built to an exceptionally high specification. It is firmly established as one of the most desirable communities for those holidaying around the Disney area. It is an ideal base for doing what 'you' want to do, whether it be visiting the many superb golf courses, soaking up the sun on the glorious beaches or visiting the wealth of theme parks and other attractions.The community also boasts a kids park and nature park.

Shops, restaurants, take-aways and other amenities are all only a few minutes away. For the serious shopper looking for that special offer or unrepeatable bargain, you can shop 'tip you drop at the many shopping areas, such as The Florida Mall, Prime Outlets on International Drive and Premium Outlets, Junction 68 off the I4. Tthe selection of shopping malls, discount outlets, department stores and markets seem endless and prices are usually very favourable compared with the UK.

Orlando International Airport is 30 minutes drive away, while Sandford Airport is around 1 hour away and with Tampa Airport also around 1 hour away, this gives maximum flexibility when choosing your flight.
