About the property

Villa, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Feel more than welcome in our premier executive and spacious villa, located in the beautiful and gated intimate community of Grand Reserve which has only 110 Executive homes.

This small development is built around Lake Thomas, the surrounding wetland, and conservation areas. It offers so much peace and serenity. It is a wonderful place to relax and unwind after an exciting day at Disney or at one of the beaches.

The community is gated for the safety of all and well maintained by our management company.

At the patio you will find the very large and heated pool with a luxury separate heated spa for up to ten people. Overlook the beautiful garden and the conservation area from the spa or from the lanai.

Play golf at one of the many championship courses, all conveniently located nearby. Or go fishing at the lake or in deep sea. More excitement? Take a private airboat ride close to our home and see the real Florida: view the alligators all around and watch the beautiful birds in their natural habitat.

Our executive villa offers a very spacious accommodation with a maximum of comfort for up to ten people. It has two living rooms and is ideal for one or two families and grandparents. There is much privacy as our home is surrounded by fences and a conservation area. Meet the birds in our backyard daily. You can even feed them so close: they eat from your hand.

All rooms are at the ground floor, handicapped accessible. The very luxury Master Bedroom has a king-size bed and a spacious en-suite private bathroom with bathtub and a separate rainfall shower.

The room is equipped with a television and a DVD player.

The second Master Suite is separated from the main living area with a corridor to give additional privacy. It is also equipped with a television and a DVD player and has exclusive use of the pool bathroom.

The pool bathroom is complete with walk-in shower and also has private access to the patio and pool area.

The third bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed and is located between the master bedroom and the living room. It also has a TV and a DVD player.

The two other bedrooms are twin rooms. with a shared full bathroom, conveniently located between the two rooms. This is an ideal situation if you vist us with kids. Both rooms are equipped with a television and one has also a DVD player.

The large full Kitchen is well equipped with plenty of work space, a central island and breakfast bar. You will find a large double door fridge with icemaker, a dishwasher, a microwave and a large oven with stove top.

The separate full-sized and fully equipped Laundry Room with a large fabric safe drum washer and dryer is very comfortable.

The Breakfast Nook overlooks the pool and the lanai, and there is also a desk with a free multiline telephone and free high speed internet connection.

Beyond this is the comfortable, bright and airy Family Room which is fully-equipped with free 110-channel cable TV and additional free Satellite TV with free European channels. You will find a very large 50' plasma flat screen and a Panasonic 5.1 Dolby Home Entertainment system. There is a selection of DVDs and CDs for your entertainment.

The large sliding patio doors give direct access to the pool area and lanai from this room.

The living Room enjoys views across the pool to the conservation area beyond and also has patio doors allowing direct access to the dining area on the lanai. This room, and the dining Room, which overlooks the conservation land to the front of our home, are both exquisitely and elegantly furnished.

As the conservation area is at the backyard of our property, our South-facing spectacular large Pool with a premier and separate heated spa for up to eight people are afforded complete privacy. You can enjoy the far reaching spectacular views over the nature preserve whilst relaxing on one of the luxury cushioned poolside loungers in the fabulous Floridian sunshine.

The lake and wetland area are home to a wide variety of birds and mammals. Sand Cranes and Egrets, enjoy the habitat, bright red Cardinals are frequent visitors to our bird feeder and red headed woodpeckers can be seen on The Live Oak draped with Spanish moss on the edge of the property, from which our villa takes its name. It is a bird watcher's paradise and a favorite for painters and writers who enjoy the tranquility but also want the convenience of nearby amenities.

The garden, pool and lanai lighting allow you to enjoy to have diner at the poolside, where you will also experience spectacular sunsets. At dusk the conservation area comes alive with a cacophony of sound from the creatures of the night, but within the screened area you will be bug-free. The hypnotic sound of the cicadas and the throaty melody of the bullfrogs fills the redolent evening air whilst you relax and enjoy the unique Floridian ambiance with a glass of wine or cold beer and contemplate nothing more taxing than tomorrow’s adventures. Or just relax while sitting in the spa.

Enjoy all the free 110 channel Cable TV in all rooms. Also you can use free highspeed wireless internet in all rooms and at the patio at the poolside.

The home is equipped with a multiline telephone in each room and two wireless phones in addition. Enjoy free long distance calls from every phone and free, fair use of calls to anywhere in Europe!

For the comfort of all our guests this is a non-smoking home. Smoking is only permitted outside the home at the patio and the lanai.

Regrettably pets are not permitted.

About The Owner

While living and working in The Netherlands, we often stay in United States ever since 1976. It is really our second country and we love to be in our beautiful Florida home.

Over the years we visited Florida many times with our kinds and now our grand kids.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2004

Why The Owner chose Grand Reserve

Our Florida home is an executive villa with many upgrades, the best possible furniture and beautiful decorations. Our pool and spa are by far the largest in the area. The home is well maintained and we keep it in the best possible condition.

There is free professional high speed internet and the computer and printer are all yours to use!

The villa is situated in a small gated and very safe community with only 110 homes. About 70% of the homes are permanently occupied by its owners which keeps the neighborhood in a well maintained condition.

What makes this villa unique

The home is very close to Disney, Legoland, Seaworld, Universal Studio's and so on. Also the outlet - and shopping malls are in a close distance.

After a day in a park or after a day of extended shopping, relax at the pool side or in the big spa with a beautiful and tranquil lighted patio and garden.

It was Perfect from beginning to end!!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Fred,

From the very beginning of starting the booking process, you have been wonderful to work with.

We are truly grateful you gave us the opportunity to rent this villa. We got stuck with cold weather but we still enjoyed your beautiful home and how spacious it was especially hanging out and cooking together in the large kitchen. Our kids enjoyed your large pool and spa even with the cold weather. We wouldn't have had this experience staying at a hotel.. not at all!

I brought with me a group of 12... My parents, my sister her husband and 2 girls along with my 4 boys 19,17,13 & 10 and my husband. There is something so beautiful about bringing a family together not just during the holidays but any time of the year and Fred you made that happen by simply renting your home to us. Thank you, Thank you and Thank you!!

We wish that this home continues to be a blessing for families that stay in your villa!!

I will definitely be reaching out to you for future stays!! Thank you again, and we wish you and your family a Happy New Years!

My family and I spent a week in this beautiful home. The pictures don't do it justice. The home is very large with lots of space to relax. The pool was already heated upon our arrival so we were able to use it right away. The pool is very large and the yard is gorgeous. We even made fresh squeezed orange juice using fruit from the tree in the back yard! Although the pool cover has seen better days, it did the job and kept the pool temperature ideal. There were a couple of very cool days, so we chose those to go to Universal. It was only a short drive to the park (20- 30 minutes, depending on traffic), so that was nice. There was a small issue with the smoke alarms going off (low back-up battery), but the management company took care of it fairly quickly. This property is amazing and I would recommend it to anyone interested in visiting the Orlando area.

Owner's Response: Dear John, Thank you very much for your nice words. The pool blanket has been removed and a new one is now available once the weather will get colder in fall. The management company replaced the batteries in all thirteen smoke and carbon sensors, although they were not due to be replaced. Thanks for sharing the joy of our home in the Disney Area and we hope to see you next time.

Most beautifull home ever!

  • 5 of 5

Everything is so well maintained and decorated. Everything is in 5 plus condition and high quality.

We felt a warm welcome with all amenities in the bathrooms and decorations in the bedrooms.

The pool was already warmed up upon arrival, so we could jump in immediately.

The service of the owners and management company is great and Fred is so easy to work with.

It was really great|!

Villa Disneyworld Grand Reserve, Florida

  • 5 of 5

It was our family's first trip to Orlando and it was a pleasure dealing with Fred in every aspect. The home was extremely clean, located perfectly and absolutely beautiful. Fred is a wonderful person and was very attentive and helpful in so many ways. We could not have asked for a better person to deal with or a more perfect vacation home. Our kids loved the pool and there was more than enough room for all of us. Della at the vacation management company is great to deal with and was very helpful. All in all we would definitely return and would recommend this vacation home. Thanks so much for being a part of so many wonderful memories for our family and providing a beautiful home to come to after a busy day at the theme parks! Regards, Dave & Lucy.

Nearest Motorway
2.5 Miles
Car: recommended

Close to all attraction parks: Disney Parks 10 minutes, Seaworld 20 minutes, Universal Studio's 25 minutes. And of course the villa is also close to all major factory outlet stores and the famous Florida Mall and Mall at Millenia: save $$ !
