About Derek Houghton

With my wife Julie we have been visiting Florida particularly the Disney area for the last 20 years, we just love the place and of course the 'SUN' We decided to buy a place of our own rather than carry on renting which we did in 2009, having rented we know what the guest expect and need so with that in mind that's exactly what we supply to our guests, luxury living at affordable prices.

Derek Houghton purchased this house in 2009

Why Derek Houghton chose Disney / Orlando

Oak Island Harbor community is a community that is known and appreciated for its convenient location in the prestigious Formosa Gardens area. Upscale private pool homes in a spectacular and peaceful setting yet close to where everything is going on.

If you are vacationing in Central Florida for the fabulous weather as well as visiting all the world famous theme parks, then this is the villa for you. The house has one of the nicest settings imaginable with the back lawn running down to the waters edge of the private lake that this community is built around. The generous pool deck gives you uninterrupted exposure to the Florida sunshine all day long. Then in the evening enjoy the spectacular sunsets and the nightly glow of the firework display from the nearby Disney Park while you relax in the lanai or soak in our relaxing spa.

The lake is also visited by a variety of Florida wildlife including Herons, Cranes etc, the lake is also stocked with a variety of fish, so if you are feeling lucky, grab a pole from the games room and try it out.

What makes this house unique

Just a 2 minute drive from the villa, guests will find the famous highway 192 – and the Formosa Gardens shopping plaza and eateries. Some of the best known restaurants are located at Formosa Gardens, with an Outback Steak House, Red Lobster, TGI Fridays, Buffalos Wild Wings, Giordano’s Chicago Pizza restaurant, Carabba’s Italian, Cracker Barrel, Chinese, Subway and Taco Bell takeaways, as well as shops, a Winn Dixie supermarket, and much much more.

We arrived on the Friday after a long flight and check in, we got to the Villa and it took our breath away. We loved every minute there and it made our honeymoon. The villa is stunning in every way, from the bedrooms, to the bathroom, to the kitchen and the lounge. Having not been to America for a while we were slightly blind and Derek had kindly left us information about local resources such as restaurants and shops. After a long day at the parks it was perfect to come back and sit in the jacuzzi looking across the lake and watching the sun go down. The location of the villa is perfect, so close to Disney etc and lovely restaurants only down the road. We would definitely recommend this place to our family and friends and we certainly be returning. Thank you Derek also for lending my husband your fishing rod - he made good use of it and it was very pleased. Thank you again for letting us stay, we had a fantastic time.

WOW WOW WOW! Stunning villa and breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived back home from our absolutely amazing time in Florida and definitely one of the main reasons was this fantastic luxurious villa we stayed in for three weeks.

To begin with all the communications/queries with the owners Derek and Julie were dealt with extremely promptly and both of them were helpful and accommodating. We were emailed directions to the villa a week beforehand and were also provided with a 'Welcome Handbook' on arrival at the villa covering everything from instructions how to use appliances and technology, suggestions of places to go and even a short cut to Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park which is surprisingly is only a short distance away. Julie rang us the day after we arrived to check we had settled in. She also rang when the unexpected news of Hurricane Matthew happened which for us was very reassuring. Both Julie and Derek were extremely kind, helpful and very accommodating with regards to this unexpected news and for this we feel they went above and beyond what we would have expected. This made it as stress free as possible considering the forecast of Hurricane Matthew. We must also say Keith, from the property management team who helps run the villa on behalf of Derek and Julie, was also very good during our stay there and especially with advice about the hurricane. With Derek, Julie and Keith they couldn't have done more to help us and provided excellent service from start to finish, which was the best we have ever received.

The villa certainly has the WOW factor. The villa inside was very comfortable and had everything you possibly could have wanted. The furnishings were of a high standard. There was also plenty of linen and towels provided.

The main feature that definitely was the jewel in the crown was the pool, spa, outside pool area and the most amazing views of the lake at the back we have ever experienced whilst on vacation. We could have stayed forever in the spa/pool area looking at the view of the lake and fountain as it was simply breathtaking. It was also a perfect way to end your busy days at a theme park, relaxing in the pool or spa at night with the fireworks from Disney at a distance. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Location was very good and very close to all the Disney parks/areas, shops and restaurants. It also had easy access to the 192 and I4 for all the other attractions like Universal, Sea World and International Drive.

Definitely would recommend.

Truly magical!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay in Derek's home. The home was exactly as it was described. It was very clean and everything was in working order. Clear directions were given for all of the technology and appliances. Derek checked in on us soon after we arrived to make sure we were settled and comfortable. Our teenage children thoroughly enjoyed the game room. The kitchen was spacious and well-equipped. The open floor plan allowed for all of us to interact when we wanted to do so, but the beautiful bedrooms allowed each child their own space when needed. The Master Bedroom was very spacious with a large Master Bath. There were plenty of linens provided in all areas of the house.

The crowning jewel was the pool that looked out on the beautiful lake. We spent most of our daytime hours at the Disney parks, but our family started and ended each day in the beautiful pool and hot tub. It was a great place for us to plan our exciting adventures for the day, and then to recap each magical moment as the moonlight shone on the lake. One evening, we watched a fireworks display from the pool!

There were plenty of restaurants and shops close by. We were delighted to find a Publix and a Walgreens nearby for picking up food items for the week. The house was truly 5 minutes to the Magic Kingdom and Disney Parks. I would recommend this house to anyone. Without a doubt, we would stay here again.

Excellent experience at Lakeview

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent experience at lake View!!!!

The house is very comfortable, well equipped and the heated hot tub was the best for relaxing after long days walking in the theme parks.

Kids enjoy the pool, the game room and XBox in their room. Probably they would have love to stay in home all day!!!!

The owner very helpful as well.

great experience!!!!

Location, Location, LOCATION!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was just perfect for us! It was located in a wonderful area and exactly as it stated...close to everything!! We only went on Interstate 4 once (to Discovery Cove), otherwise, we stayed with 10 miles or so of the home. The home had everything we needed, inside and out. Derek called us on Sunday to make sure all was great! How nice of him to do that!! We loved the porch and esp the pool & spa!! We used the kitchen to make our Fresh strawberry shortcake, that was delicious!! The oven actually baked it better than mine at home??!!

We had one minor concern, only because my husband knows about pools. But it turned out the pool man stopped by to clean and he agreed with my husband, and had it taken care of in a manner of minutes!! What great service!! The a/c worked great and kept the home nice and comfy!!

The only sad thing: we found out that "Ted" lives in the pond and we never got to see or meet him. Although, just to see him would have been enough!! (FYI-Ted is an alligator that lives in the pond).

One day the boys went to Epcot and my daughter & I ordered pizza from the local/close by restaurant. It was delivered on time and hot and delicious. There were brochures in the home that we found. So close to groceries, gas, restaurants, and of course the Disney attractions.

Thank you Derek for the wonderful week we had in your Orlando home!!! And having seven sun-filled, no rain days was even better. We would definitely rent from you again!!!

Beautiful home... would happily stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for a week while in the area with our two kids (9 and 11). The home was beautiful. Very clean, lots of room... we couldn't have asked for a more perfect home away from home! I'm not sure why we ever stayed in a hotel with rentals like this. The kids would have been just as happy to stay here and swim in the pool/hot tub than go to Disney (some days). When not in the pool or Disney we played toss outside or enjoyed the game room (the kids now love to play pool). Everyone was very easy to work. We highly recommend this home!
