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 Four Corners

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.

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!

Excellent Home Just Minutes Away!

  • 5 of 5

For our first visit to Disney (with a 3 and 5 year old), we are so glad that we opted to stay off the property and at your lovely home. Everything was in tip top shape when we arrived. Even though the temps were low for the Floridians, we swam everyday in the pool and the hot tub soothed our aching muscles after a long day at the parks. Working with Derek was so simple- and he provided us with very clear directions for everything we needed during our stay. We wouldn't hesitate to return!

Fabulous week!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Derek and Julie's home. The pool and hottub were perfect (the awesome weather helped!), fantastic view, and the house was very clean and had everything we needed, including crib and highchair, pool toys, etc. We made use of the games room as well, the kids had fun! Derek or Julie replied to emails quickly for a couple of questions we had during our stay, and also phoned to check in with us. There were instructions left that gave details of most things we needed to know. Although there wasn't too much within walking distance, it was a quick drive to Disney, as well as grocery stores and other shopping, restaurants, mini golf, etc. It was a great stay, we would love to go again!
