The villa is located in Town Centre Reserve which is a private gated community of 95 villas all in a Floridian style, surrounded by palm trees, conservation areas and lakes.
As well as being a short term rental the villa is our holiday home and we want to make it as comfortable as possible for our guests as well as ourselves. With this in mind we are continually upgrading the villa.
We have completely refurbished two of the bedrooms with new furniture, beds and mattresses. Bathroom towels replaced and beach towels included for guest use. Kitchen crockery, glassware and silverware have all been upgraded.
October 2015 - Pool has been relined and is now a perfect "sky blue" finish.
December 2015 - New sitting room sofa and armchairs, new dining table with seating for 8
July 2016 - Living area redecorated
October 2016 - As a further enhancement we have invested in a new Carrier Air Conditioning system
The villa has 4 bedrooms, two of which are master suites (queen size beds) with en-suite bathrooms, walk in closets (with laundry baskets), and direct access to the pool. The 3rd and 4th bedrooms are twins which share a full bathroom.
The pool is south facing and looks out over a lily pond and lake, whilst the front of the villa looks out over a countryside conservation area
The kitchen is fully equipped with cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and dishes, silverware, glasses for indoor and outdoor use etc.
There is a full size 'american' washing machine and separate drier, ironing board etc and linen/towels are all supplied.
Please note that whilst our management company do provide a few basic essentials (such as toilet paper), this is a self catering villa and you will probably need to stock-up with some items during your stay

The Disney park area is only 15 minutes away and the villa is ideally placed for easy access to other Orlando experiences and golf courses

We have an excellent management company who is on hand if you need anything during your stay.

If you need a crib/cot please let us know and we can arrange for one to be available at a small cost
We spent 6 weeks in this wonderful private villa and enjoyed every minute of it. On the nice warm days we spent our time by the private pool, it was a great way to relax and entertain. We had many a dinner out there and never had to worry about bugs as pool area was all screened. We met our neighbours and became good friends and they were very helpful with directions etc for events.This villa was close to everything..20 minutes by car to all the Disney Parks and Attractions, close to Outlets and lots of other shopping areas. Easy ride to the International airport and attractions on the east coast of Florida. We went to Kennedy Space Centre and Cocoa Beach both about an hour drive from our villa. The villa was clean and very spacious beautifully decorated with new living room furniture and a dinning room table that easily accommodated 10 people.The management company was prompt in responding to our concerns and Rob came by personally on an occasion after hours. Inside the villa they is a binder filled with information and directions to attractions ...we found it very helpful. We enjoyed ourselves so much we have booked again for next year.
We had a really wonderful time in this house. It was comfortable, spacious and a real pleasure to stay in.
The attention to detail was stunning. Everything we could wish for was in the house and more, so many thoughtful touches.
The decor and furniture was very tasteful, elegant and quite lovely.
It was spotlessly clean in every part of the house. We found all the rooms spacious and were particularly impressed with the
enormous ensuite bathroom and fabulous dressing room. 7 of us stayed and there was plenty of room for all of us very comfortably without ever feeling compromised.
The location was perfect for exploring the area.
A fantastic, helpful and very useful information pack was in the house put together by the owners and we found this very useful.
We rented this house for a week. It was our third stay nearby Davenport and it was the worst!
The house by itself is on a beautiful and quiet place in a gated community. The reservation from us was arranged on 20th of July and it was handled properly by the owners.
Why was it the worst?
At first there are eight places to sleep. Why are there than six places round the table and also six places, at most, round the television? When there are eight persons, two had to stand or something like that.
Two of the beds were double beds. In this kind of house we always got queen beds.
The matress of our bed was hard. We had problems with sleeping in this kind of bed.
At least halfof the lamps were broke. When we arrived in the evening the lightswitch at the door didn't work and we had to stumble through a dark house to find a lamp that worked. In one of the sleeping rooms the switches didn't work at all.
Also the airco in one of the rooms didn't work. In this outside temperature airco is a must. We had the luck that we were with two persons, so we could get another room to sleep.
One of the three toilets didn't work either.
And then the pool. The water was OK, but the floor and the sides of the pool were more green than blue, the original colour. I think that a good cleaning is more than necessary.
I almost forgot the couch. When I took my seat a big pipe hurt my back.
I read the comments of the owner to a previous review and there stood that they needed some time to make a good house of this villa.
It's a pity that they didn't take care for a good inventory before they put this house in the rental market.
We as a tourist paid a lot of money and expected a clean and decent house.
And this wasn't that kind of a house.
I shouldn't return to this house!
We were so very pleased with this villa. Perfect location. It was a very nice home away from home. Loved it and look forward to staying again!
We were 14 days in the house, we were 4 adults and 4 kids. The layout was perfekt for two families with kids, the kids had their own room sharing a bathroom with tub. The adult having their own room with private and big toilet with shower and walkin closet
The house had everything we needed, good beds, Nice pool fully functional kitchen, and we were very surprised and positived by what we got for our money. There were free wifi and satelite tv, and the house has perfect location to the Disney Parks. The correspondance with the owner has been exceptional, we will recommend this house to all our friends.
rented house from 2/7/2015 thru 2/21/2015
Nice House. Nice & quiet neighborhood. The house physical layout works great - 2 masters separated from 2 twin rooms.The carpeting is nasty dirty with stains everywhere. The ceiling fans in every room wobble when in use. The mattresses in all rooms are "hard as rocks" and all (8 adults) got backaches before vacation was over. The sheets & towels were old, threadbare, rough,& grey-colored. We bought new towels!
The pool is small, but adequate. The pool water is clear & the filtering system ran from 9:30am to about 3pm. We paid to have to pool heated. The pool Heat is "locked in" at 73 or 74' and management company will not raise the tempature. There was no pool cover!! Pool walls & floor have a disconcerting hardened yellow crust all over. It could not be removed by scrubbing with a scrub brush (i tried). We used the pool very little because water was too cold & the yellow crusting (very uninviting).
Upon arrival the house has no condiments, pool toys,etc, like I have found in other vacation home rentals. The grill is small charcoal (we did not use it) similar to round top "webers".
The garage door is locked and could not raise it. Racoons got into trash at night, which could not be avoided because trash can is outside!
I hope the owners will make improvements in this property to make it a great rental, otherwise I would not reccomend this house.
