We are a Husband and wife who just loved travelling to Florida so much we bought a house there! Since then we have made many friends in the area and even attended a wedding there last year.
Jennifer Barrett purchased this villa in 2004
The villa is in a lovely quiet location with south facing pool overlooking conservation that will never be built on yet it is so close to all the attractions!
Watching the wildlife to the rear of the pool - we have even seen an Eagle on the tree behind!
Our stay was just what we needed. We had 2 families and everyone had there space. Thank you so much for letting us use your house.
We are just back from staying 3 weeks at this bills for our first family trip to Florida. We found the villa easily with the directions provided and on arrival found it to be spotlessly clean. It's ideally situated with just a short drive to Disney parks and slightly longer for other attractions. Very spacious, everything you could need is provided and the sat nav is a massive help! Our kids loved the games room and pool and we had an amazing time. Can't comment on the management company as following a welcome phone call, we didn't have cause to contact them. Jennifer was also very helpful throughout the booking process and I would not hesitate to book this property again.
I can't rate this villa high enough! I should start by saying that it is the first time we have booked a villa privately, having only stayed in hotels on International Drive. The booking process was made really easy by Jennifer the owner. She was very helpful in sending directions from the airport and to the Disney parks, as well as details of local supermarkets (Publix and Super Target only being 5 minutes drive away). Having the use of the Sat Nav was a god send, it had loads of destinations pre-programmed and also advised you which lanes to use for exits which is really helpful when driving in a different country.
The villa itself is great, really clean and in an excellent location. We timed it and from leaving the villa, we were pulling into Disney Hollywood Studios car park within 10 minutes! Universal Studios was further but still only approx. 20 mins.
There were TONS of restaurants nearby (e.g. Outback Steakhouse less than 5 minutes drive away) to choose from on the 192, not great for the waist line but really convenient.
All in all I cannot recommend this villa highly enough. Both location and facilities were second to none and I can't wait to come back in the future.
We had a great time staying at this rental. Plenty of space for two families to stay. We had 4 adults and 5 boys total, so the game room (foosball, pool table, air hockey) was PERFECT for them!! I have never seen such a spacious kitchen in the other rentals we've done and its perfect for 4 adults and preparing meals right there. LOTS of dishes, utensils, appliances to use. There wasn't anything that we found that they didn't have. Plenty of glasses and dishes for the 9 of us there! The pool was fantastic, great sun/shade ratio, and awesome colorful lighting in the evening hours with the pool light. Even a few pool floaties there waiting for us. We really don't have any complaints and have said that we will plan next years vacation there again. Jenn Barnett, the owner, was excellent to talk with and so fast at responding to me messages on the HomeAway app. Thats a great feature to have now, as we have not communicated with the owners before, just the rental management. I think I've initiated a convo with Jenn 4-5 times and every time she was prompt in responding, even despite her being in the UK! Thanks so much for opening your house to rent! :)
I highly recommend staying here. This house meets all your needs and is perfectly located to everything! You can stay here with another family and still have your privacy. The pool is great to unwind and relax in the evenings. This house is very clean and has everything you need.
Dealt with owner Jen for the booking and payment, everything was done smoothly and communication was great. It was night time when we arrived, and the property manager had been and turned the lights on to welcome us, which was lovely - not walking in to a strange house in the dark! The villa had everything we needed, everything had been thought of. It was in a great location for the theme parks, Universal being the furthest which still only took approx. 20 minutes with road works on the interstate. We paid for the pool to be heated, which was essential at this time of year, and my younger children loved it! Older children greatly appreciated the Wi-Fi. Publix supermarket only 5 mins drive away, WalMart approx 10 mins. Lots of restaurants nearby. There is also a SatNav provided in the villa, which was very useful. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property, and hope to visit again.

The area backs on to a large conservation area providing a peaceful backdrop to the community and affording the opportunity to see some of the local wildlife such as water birds, raccoons, armadillos and even eagles.
There is a play area provided for children as well as a communal pool where guests can swim if they require a larger pool than the private villa pool.
