About Andrew Crawford

My family live in the UK and we have been regular visitors to Florida for the last 20yrs.

I'm now in semi retirement after 30 years in Law Enforcement. I now have a part time job with the Ambulance Service whereas my wife works full time in the Health Service.

Andrew Crawford purchased this villa in 2008

Why Andrew Crawford chose Vista del Lago

Purchasing a home in Vista Del Lago was an easy decision for us after renting vacation properties in Florida and then deciding it was time we owned our own home.

The Community has a genuine community feel to it with a lovely clubhouse with two pools, hot tubs, tennis courts and more.

The location is ideal with easy access to all of the main roads in the area. Disney World is 10 minutes away and the other main attractions are within 20 minutes drive. Shopping is made easy with Publix, Super Target, and Super Wal-Mart all within 2 miles of our home.

What makes this villa unique

The Community is as quiet as you want it to be. You can choose to relax in privacy on the rear Patio area at the home or take a morning dip in the Clubhouse Swimming Pool and have a chat with the locals.

For those more energetic take a relaxing morning walk or improve your fitness in the Gym.

Best of all is you can do all of this in the glorious year round sunshine state of Florida.

Great home base to go to parks

  • 5 of 5

This house has been good to me. I've rented this property twice, and I will likely do so again. It's very close to Disney, fairly close to Universal, and the price is great. Very clean house in a gated community with enough room for probably 4-7 people. Renting this property is the cheapest way to have a great time in Disney/Universal that I have found. The owner is very responsive and polite, and I had no problems checking in or out. Highly recommended.

Cómoda casa, cerca de Disney

  • 5 of 5

La casa es muy cómoda para una familia y está muy cerca de Disney. La casa está muy bien provista de todo. Tiene clima, estufa con horno, microndas, lavadora, secadora, dos baños, cable, roku, teléfono, blancos, utensilios de cocina, etc. La casa tenía acceso a tres albercas y a un gym. Está localizada en un barrio muy tranquilo y agradable y tienda abarrotes y restaurantes están cercas. El dueño es muy amable y deja las instrucciones claras y no es nada problemático, ni tiene tantas reglas (él recuerda que estamos de vacaciones). Para ser perfectas me gustaría que tuviera una licuadora y el acceso a la villa es con tarjeta y esta se recoge en el club de la villa y el club está cerrado el fin de semana y lo malo es que yo llegue en domingo, entonces se dificulto un poco la entrada, pero fueron cosas mínimas para una estancia muy agradable. Gracias por recibirnos en su casa. Yo recomiendo mucha esta casa para unas vacaciones familiares. Saludos y espero regresar a su hogar.

Owner's Response: Gracias Claudia por tomarse el tiempo para publicar una reseña de su reciente estancia. Para el beneficio de mis clientes de habla inglesa he traducido a continuación. Comfortable house near Disney The house is very comfortable for a family and is very close to Disney. The house is very well stocked with everything. It has climate, stove with oven, microwave, washing machine, dryer, two bathrooms, cable, roku, telephone, white, kitchen utensils, etc. The house had access to three swimming pools and a gym. It is located in a very quiet and pleasant neighborhood and grocery store and restaurants are nearby. The owner is very friendly and leaves the instructions clear and is not at all problematic, nor does he have so many rules (he remembers that we are on vacation). To be perfect I would like to have a blender and access to the villa is by card and this is collected in the villa club and the club is closed on the weekend and the bad thing is that I arrive on Sunday, then it is difficult A bit on the way in, but it was minimal stuff for a very pleasant stay. Thank you for welcoming us into your home. I highly recommend this house for a family vacation. Greetings and I hope to return to your home.

Great little getaway home.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time. House was spacious and well kept . Diane the housekeeper was so nice, I had to call her when a storm knocked out the power but the whole community was out of power, it came back on soon after. My family and I will definitely be interested in staying here again on future trips.

Great family home for Disney vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 17 wonderful days at Andrews' home in Vista Del Lago. We are multiple time repeat visitors to Disney and have stayed in many different locations, so we know the Disney rental market well. We were very pleased with the value we got in this home. The owner, Andrew, was extremely responsive, friendly and helpful to any inquiry we sent. That in itself is important to us, it gave me a great sense of confidence going in. The house was perfect for our family of 5. The kitchen is big and open, which is a huge benefit when trying to prepare lunches for a day in the parks. Having a covered carport is awesome, especially in the summer sun. The house was in fine condition and had all the things we would have asked for in a rental home. Excellent Wifi, I was able to work from the house a few days, and the kids could all use their devices. The house is a very short walk from one of the pools, which was great. It's a pretty short drive to the Disney parks, especially Hollywood Studios. Overall, we would highly recommend staying at this home and would do so again. Thanks so much for everything, Andrew!! Wonderful home you have!
