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.

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.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 9 adults and 5 kiddies. The house was perfect for us! The older kids enjoyed the airhockey and everybody loved the pool. Close to Disney, restaurants, shopping, etc. The owner was very responsive to all the many questions we had during our trip planning. Overall a great family vacation!

The house was exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

What a great house and location. The kids and grand kids loved going to Disney, come home for a swim and cool off, and then only a few minutes back to the park. The house was clean, spacious, and had a comfortable feel. The bedrooms were spacious and while we are a close family did give us room to relax. It helped make this a great vacation!
