About Gareth Jones

We are Gareth and Cathie. We first visited Florida with our children in 1997 and have been coming back ever since. What do we love about the Orlando area? The sunshine, the scenery, the theme parks for the children and the opportunity to relax by playing tennis and golf, swimming and visiting beautiful beaches and national parks. Nowhere helps us unwind like Florida.

Gareth Jones purchased this villa in 2005

Why Gareth Jones chose Disney / Orlando

Put very simply, it's located in the best resort we have stayed in (and we have stayed in many other ones before we bought our house) and has one of the very best locations within the resort.

What makes this villa unique

It provides peace and tranquillity for the rest days by the pool, yet it is only 3 miles from Disney World.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is my second Stay at this Villa Casa Delfina. I left a comment before on 9/2/2009.

To be honest the Villa still the same as it was 2 years ago. It is very professionally maintained and in very good shape. Again we had a very wonderful stay and enjoyed out time.

If I go again, I will definitely go to the same Villa again.

A very comfortable home. Walking distance to clubhouse and close drive to markets and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

Luxury lakeside 7 bedroom house- This lovely villa was tastefully decorated , comfortable and inviting. More than enough space for a family of 9 adults ranging from 76 to 18 years of age. The bedroom decor was not too juvenile nor too ornate. Every one loved the privacy of having their own suite with bathrooms. The pool and lanai were a big hit especially when the pool was lit up at night. Plenty of towels and kitchenware. We opted to have the grill and a midweek cleaning both enhanced our stay even more. Thanks to the owners and managers for all of their support. I would choose this home again. I GIVE IT 5 STARS!

Very clean. Rooms nice...furniture nice...mattresses are a little worn

  • 4 of 5

Clean and spacious rooms....kitchen adequate....no paper towels or dishwashing soap....no laundry soap...toilet paper rolls were half full...pool cues in garage have no tips. Would get the pool heated next time as the water was too cold. The house was very clean and linens provided were adequate but no wash cloths.

House was perfect.

  • 4 of 5

We had a good time and very comfortable

Some suggestions:

- increase wifi capability (we had many users so this slowed wifi connection)

- create list of some essentials needed (which is standard in these rentals) like tennants should bring extra toilet paper, paper towels, shampoo and soap, salt and pepper, trash bags, cloths detergent. Just to name a few to make expectations and shopping easier.

Overall place was clean, easy to arrive, comfortable.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay in this clean and well-maintained home. We really like the close proximity to Disney parks and also the quiet refuge from the parks that this home provides. We enjoyed the screened in pool area with great wildlife viewing out behind the property. The owner gets an A+ in customer service. We left behind my daughter's Ukelele and the owner was very kind in making sure this was returned to us. We would definitely recommend this property and look forward to another stay at this home on our next trip to Orlando.

Car: recommended

Casa Delfina is situated in the exclusive Enclave section of the guarded gated resort community Emerald Island which is within 5 minutes' drive of Disney World. Our house has a south facing pool with beautiful views over a lake onto conservation woodland. It provides an ideal location for large family groups.

For sports enthusiasts, there are several highly regarded golf courses within a very short drive. In addition to Disney World, attractions such as Sea World, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure are easily accessed via the I-4 junction just minutes away from the house. Kennedy Space Centre is an hour's drive away on the Atlantic Coast along with famous beaches such as Cocoa Beach. Busch Gardens in Tampa is an hour's drive towards the Gulf coast with yet more beautiful beaches to choose from along the Gulf.
