About the property

4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, free solar heated pool and jacuzzi, HDTVs, Game room!

Welcome to Minnie Ha-Ha! Villa, a place where you can build memorable vacations for you and your family!

Located in the prestigious gated community of Calabay Parc at Tower Lake, enjoy the peaceful surroundings and safe neighborhood (with 24/7 security gate house). Go fishing at the community's private lake, just a few minutes walk; there's plenty of fish to catch!

Feel at home in this 4-bedroom / 4-bathroom villa, only minutes away from Disney parks and Legoland. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, comfy and ideal for one or two families. The two master bedrooms are very spacious, each with 32' flat screen LED HDTVs. The second master bedroom is privately located on its own in the second floor. For large families the living room includes a sofa-bed (sleeps 2).

After a long day in the parks, relax in the pool and/or the jacuzzi. These are facing south for maximum daily sun exposure. If you like to take a night dive enjoy the changing color pool lights and warm water provided free of charge if using our solar pool heating system. The pool deck/lanai includes comfortable pool furniture.

If you are not in the mood for a dive (or maybe it's raining), enjoy watching a movie on a 51' flat screen HDTV. Browse through many of the available channels! If that is not enough, catch some other entertainment on the internet. High speed wireless internet (75/75 Mbps - FiOS) is included and available in the entire villa. And if you still don't find anything interesting, get the family together for a mini-Olympics competition: Play with the pool table, air hockey table, or Foosball table in the game room!

Talk to your friends and relatives about your vacation with any of the three wireless phones. Unlimited calls to the US, Canada and Puerto Rico are included free of charge.

We hope you have a wonderful vacation in Florida, and if you choose this villa, we hope you love it, as much as we do!

About Jin and Paul

We are a typical family of four (two small daughters). Our kids speak English, Spanish, and Mandarin which should give you a good idea of our diverse background. We are professionals working in Canada and dreaming of an early retirement...But why wait for retirement to enjoy the sun?! We bought this villa as a vacation home to build wonderful memories for our family, and we hope for yours too!

Jin and Paul purchased this villa in 2013

Why Jin and Paul chose Haines City

As much as you or your kids love the Disney parks, you sometimes need to wind down and relax in a quiet, safe place away from the crowds.

This villa is close but not too close to all the attractions. After all, once you go to a park you normally stay there the whole day, so being 5 minutes close to it or 20 minutes away will not make a lot of difference.

This villa is less than a mile from Highway US 27 which is a fluid highway, and 10 minutes from Interstate 4 Highway (I-4) which will take you quickly to Disney and other attractions. Driving the Orlando local roads is painful (traffic lights are very slow), so going to Disney using these highways may feel faster...even faster than taking US 192 (Irlo Bronson Memorial Hwy) which can be very busy.

If you've stayed at other villas before, you may have noted that many of them look just the same, with a very similar layout. The ones at Calabay Parc at Tower Lake are different. We love the 12-foot ceilings and house layout. It feels very spacious.

If you are sharing this villa with another family (i.e friends), having your own private bathroom can make your stay a lot more comfortable. Nobody will complain since each bedroom has its own bathroom!

If you are a snowbird, and your son's family is visiting, your son and wife can comfortably stay on the 2nd master bedroom on the 2nd Floor. It's totally private for them.

A community that is gated, with security cameras, and a 24/7 security gate house makes you feel safer. In addition, this villa has a security alarm system.

What makes this villa unique

Calabay Parc at Tower Lake is one of few gated communities with a pier where you can fish. The lake is considered private property.

The community has sidewalks so people can safely jog or walk to the lake just a few blocks away.

This villa is relatively new. It was built in 2007 and the previous owner was not active renting it out, so it is in very good condition.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at Minniehaha. There was plenty of room for our two families. The two master bedrooms were on opposite sides of the house. The pool and spa were perfect for our active children. Nice and close to many things to do and see. A short drive to Disney. From here it was only an hour or so to either the gulf or coast beaches. Only 10 minutes to some great shopping. Added security of the gated community and an alarm system was a huge plus. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you Jin and Paul!

We had a fantastic time!

  • 5 of 5

Very pleased with our first ever home rental for a vacation. The home was clean and exactly as described. The community peaceful and quiet. We felt 100% safe. Everything was easy to access and the owners were very available to us for any questions we had. Will definitely book again when traveling to Florida!

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at Minniehaha and had an amazing time! The villa is beautiful and is just how it is shown in the photos. It was very clean and well presented on our arrival and we loved coming back to it after a day at the parks to relax, swim in the pool or use the hot tub. I would say the parks are between a 25-30 minute drive but we stuck to the speed limit otherwise our car would tell us what the speed limit was if we went over it, which got a little annoying sometimes!! There is a fantastic restaurant nearby called Manny's Chop House which we went to a number of times. The only downside to the area is there is not a great choice of restaurants nearby so if you want to go out in the evening you have to drive further afield to get a better selection. Overall I would highly recommend staying at Minniehaha as it made our stay a very pleasant one!

Wonderful House! Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

This is s great house with a lovely pool. It was a joy to come home after the days at parks and have our own pool and private living space. House was clean when we arrived, game room was fun and it was convenient to all amusement parks. Owners were well organized and gave plenty of information to make stay delightful. Highly recommend!! Would definitely come back!!
