About Alice en Frans van der Heide

We live at Wijdemeren in the village Nederhorst den Berg in the middle of the Vecht lake area between Weesp and Hilversum, around 20 minutes' drive from Amsterdam.

Alice en Frans van der Heide purchased this villa in 2014

Why Alice en Frans van der Heide chose Oakpoint

We were frequent Florida-goers in the past years. We regularly returned to Davenport Area (just south of Orlando), where we hired. Because of its location in a quiet community near the Central Florida Attractions and Orlando International Airport, we decided to buy this house and bring a contemporary feel to it. Given the reviews provided, we believe we have succeeded.

What makes this villa unique

The lanai is "the place to be." By sun and by rain to sit there sheltered and have unobstructed views of the conservation area behind the house. A "fan" provides the necessary coolness. From the lanai you walk to the pool via the pool deck. The lanai has a tiled floor with structure. Even with wet feet do not just slip away. A cage with mosquito netting keeps bugs and leaves out so you evening there may linger. In the house itself, the living room occupies a central place. From the living room, all rooms ground floor accessible. The living room and bedrooms are equipped with first-class quality carpeting. The entrance floors, kitchen and bathrooms have same size matt black tile, which gives a soothing and rich look. The predominantly light color of the walls in white/gray make the effect complete. The house itself is attractively illuminated when it gets dark.

The quiet location of "Villa Dutchess" an acceptable distance from the Central Florida Attractions (Disney about 15 minutes by car) adds to the ultimate holiday feeling when you come home from the hustle and bustle in our comfortable house which is equipped with all comforts.

My wife and I had a wonderful time while staying in your home. Everything is so clean and modern.

This was my first time ever renting a home and did not know what to expect but this was a great experience. The owners and management are wonderful and very attentive. The home has a very relaxing feel to it and the pool and patio area is great as well. Kitchen is very well stocked and plenty of towels were available. Will definitely book again in the future.

The water in the pool could have been a little warmer but still did not deter the kids. Broken ceiling fan was reported on and replaced within a day by the owners.

Owner's Response: Hello John D. Nice to read that your stay turned out to be exactly as advertised and perfect for you and your family. Our property management made sure that the house was clean on arrival and that a broken fan was quickly replaced. All credits for them. It is always possible to put the pool-heater (optional) in operation during your stay through the property management. Apoligize for the inconvenience. Thanks for being our guests at Villa Dutchess and hopefully we will receive you again in the future. Kind Regards Frans & Alice.

Clean, tidy and convenient, a rental property with a great deal of thought invested in it.

  • 5 of 5

The property was easy to book, easy to find, the instructions were clear and the owners were easy to deal with, and prompt with responses to any queries. There was every conceivable gadget, utensil and item required for a home from home visit to Orlando.

We looked at a number of other properties and they all appeared to be the familiar beige, slightly worn well used rental villas. This one stood out as a modern well maintained home, and we are so glad we booked it.

It is in a quiet residential area and there is a large "Publix" supermarket that is extremely clean and well stocked. The bread counter was especially tempting. The people we encountered in the area all appeared helpful and friendly and it had a quiet slow paced feel about the place.

The villa is quite close to the main I4 motorway, which appears to be the arterial road linking all the main theme parks. Legoland and Busch Gardens were also reasonably easy to get to.

We were a family of 5 adults with a toddler under three, and found the villa to be an ideal size.

I wish the owners every success and would like to thank them for letting us rent their lovely property.
