About Brian Charlick

My wife and I have always been keen on the USA, visiting many states over the years. We chose to buy a villa in Florida however as it really gave the whole family an chance to relax and enjoy. I am a sport fan, and so being within 2 hours of top class Football (Soccer), Basketball and Baseball really appealed while the proximity to so many great shops and restaurants also appealed. My children however were obviously keen on the proximity to the parks. My wife however was happier to have a home from home and to enjoy the largely un-overlooked pool and view of the lake and setting sun.

My children have now grown up, but still come to the villa with us, and we still visit the parks, but now we also do other activities like the eco-safaris, visits to the Beach as well as to Tampa and Miami on day trips.

Brian Charlick purchased this villa in 2000

Why Brian Charlick chose Disney / Orlando

We have furnished our villa to ensure it meets your holiday needs. Indeed we take our family holidays here, so we ensure it really is a home from home.

The location of the villa took some time to find, but we think we have found an ideal location, with a lake behind and mainly south facing pool.

We are eager that the villa is in good order, and annually spend time in the autumn ensuring the villa is painted, clean and in full working order.

What makes this villa unique

Can you imagine sitting in a pool, drink in hand, watching the ducks in the lake behind the villa and the birds soaring high above in the deep blue sky?

We have the opportunity to do just that every year in our villa. That is the benefit of being in a quiet residential area. Yet from here, just 20 minutes away are all the theme parks of Orlando; Disney world parks, Sea World and Universal parks as well as International drive and many water parks. Closer still are shopping malls galore and even closer to grocery stores and restaurants

My preference however is to occasionally drive away from the parks, to either the eco-safari less than an hour away, to the air boat tour, 10 minutes away, to Tampa and beaches 2 hours away or the space centre and cocoa beach with Ron Jon's less than an hour away.

It really is a blend of a relaxing sun and pool, nature drive and theme park bonanza all in one.

Kissimee was great

  • 5 of 5

House is local to everything. Great house 3 bedrooms tv in every room.. pool is right out the back and screened in which is great. My family and I loved every minute of it... they used the pool every day it got good use. It was a home away from home for us. I definitely will be back and have already referred people. Wifi was a great thing also. Washer dryer thank you for that. It was very spacious and had lots of space. 2 dining areas and 2 living rooms. Kids enjoyed the Disney room. And lots of channels for them to watch while not swimming. And the weather was perfect the whole time couldn't have asked for a better place. Thank Brian, Rob, Glenda. Even though I didn't need for anything I loved this place.

We loved the place, it was welcoming and com for table for us.

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay at the home, everything, stores, parks, etc, is fairly close by and easy to find.

All, Beds were extremely comfortable, which we all appreciated greatly.

I would like to suggest a change to the bathroom toilets to fit handicap needs and some safety bars on walls to the showers. Also the drainage in master bedroom sinks need to be addressed.

And it was sad but pool doesn't have a heater, so our kids couldn't really enjoy to much time in it.

And we took our playpen for the baby but if we hadn't there were no amenities to fit infant/toddler needs, such highchair/booster seat, or playpen.

But we definitely will stay again.

Good size with pool but was not very clean

  • 3 of 5

Overall the house was a good size for a our party of 6. The pool was in good order and our kids really enjoyed the swim. Owner was responsive to queries when sent.

Unfortunately the house it self was not clean or well maintained. Some of the sheets were stained, the dishes had crusted on food and the vents were packed with dust.

If you need a place to crash and don't mind a little mess the value is good.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. It is important to understand any issues so they can be fixed. I have spoken to the property manager and will be changing cleaners in the new year. This should ensure the villa is cleaned properly and fully in future.

Not bad.....but not great.

  • 3 of 5

The house itself was ok. Took a while to get the necessary info from the owner initially(possible miscommunication or lack of) but once pressed,they were very courteous and helpful. The wifi came and went sometimes. There was a basketball hoop in the garage but the basketball was dead and we couldn't find a pump for it. The pool was on the smaller side. Good for a 3-4(maybe)kids. It was pretty dirty when we arrived. Called to ask about it being cleaned and was told "pool day" was the next day and it would be cleaned. Didn't really appear as though it was cleaned and it didn't help that the only dirt remover they had was torn to pieces. There was a tiny camping grill that looked like it was never cleaned in the garage. Kitchen was fine and there were plenty of clean dishes to use. TVs were available throught the house but they werent all HD. If your on a low budget and plan to spend most of your time outside, this house would be fine. If you are looking for a place to host any family get togethers or bbqs, a little more money will probably get you a lot more(bigger pool,bigger deck,bigger grill).

Owner's Response: While this review it does point out that the villa is good value for money and suitable to families who enjoy visits to the parks and days in. I am disappointed with the review. The instructions were sent several times before departure but the rent or didn't advise of non receive until they arrived in florida. All TVS ARE HD and bbqs are banned as indicated on this web site. The one in the garage is one confiscated and due to be thrown out. Sadly, I think the initial worry of lack of instructions has influenced the review. Brian
