About Don & Cathy Clayton

My wife and I bought a rental home back in 2011, in Orange Tree. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent there for our own getaways, renting our home out, and meeting so many wonderful people through phone calls and emails. We had always enjoyed Florida so much, but we grew tired of booking hotel rooms and being disappointed with the quality of the rooms or suites. It was then that we decided we would buy a house to use for our own vacations, and share our home with others who desired a nice and clean home to enjoy their vacations, as well. Our main objective was to provide a rental home for others, with the same qualities that we expected in a home, and with the focus being on cleanliness, and furnishings that were much better than average. For us, that's what renting a home was all about… getting away from the unexpected, and being assured that we had a nice, clean and comfortable place to enjoy our time away from home. In the time we rented our home to others, we had close to 30 reviews, with all being a 5 star rating, and of course, we were proud of that. Our manager was wonderful, and deserves much of the credit for the 5 star ratings. After having made many trips to Orange Tree, and 2 1/2 years later, we decided to sell our home, thinking we would like to travel to other places. We did just that, but we were ready to make our way back to Florida, and here we are, having purchased the home shown on this listing. My wife and I are retired and have plenty of time to visit Florida, and would be honored and happy to prepare a quote for your next visit to Florida! By the way, we have the same manager for our newly purchased home, and without her, we wouldn't have made the decision to buy another home.

Don & Cathy Clayton purchased this house in 2015

Why Don & Cathy Clayton chose Orange Tree

We purchased this property after spending some time vacationing in this home, and loved it! Our friends owned the home, and were gracious enough to share it with us for several of our trips to Florida. We fell in love with the floor plan, the natural light within the home, and the beautiful view from the rear of the home. With the blinds open in the living room, you can look out and enjoy seeing the pool,spa and lanai. Beyond that are the common grounds and one of the Orange Groves that helped name Orange Tree. When you are looking out the door of the Family Room , there are no homes to get in the way of the beauty of the scenery, and the privacy is wonderful! The area is always well groomed and beautiful, and for us, that was enough,. We are now proud to be the new owners of this beautiful property. After looking at other homes that were sale, none compared to this one.

What makes this house unique

Orange Tree subdivision is in a friendly and quiet setting away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas, but close enough to be an easy drive when visiting points of interest. The benefits of choosing Orange Tree is because it is so unique, provides a feeling of home, and the freedom to enjoy the lighter side of life after a long day at the theme parks or other exciting adventures of your days. Here you will be able to get a quiet nights sleep and plenty of rest for another great day in Florida!!

Wunderful home in lovely quiet neighborhood!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the home with six, me and my family plus my wife’s parents, but everyone had their privacy. Tha backyard was great ( patio to sit and a nice pool to swim. The view from the patio was great, wide and open, which really gave a rustic feeling while sitting there.

The garage was good for the kids with billiards and table tennis.

WiFi ( important these days) was really fast.

Location of the home was perfect. Everything in good driving distance.

Overall the home is an A!

Would recommend it too everyone who is looking for a great home to stay in during their holiday.

We would not look further!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back to the uk from staying at this beautiful immaculate 5 star villa . We stayed here for 3 weeks. the villa has lots of space inside and out, we enjoyed using the great sized pool and jacuzzi after a long day at the parks. The owners of the villa are absolutely lovely warm welcoming people, and We had a lovely chat with Cathy and don, we also got to meet their beautiful little dogs Charlie and Sophie . We will all be looking forward to coming to stay at this immaculate and very well presented villa agian for another 21 night stay and we will certainly be getting in touch to book again for our 10th holiday to Florida.

Fantastic holiday in a truly luxury villa

  • 5 of 5

My family's visit to Don and Cathy's villa in Orange Tree could only be described as perfect. Last year we visited Florida and stayed in a proclaimed "luxury" villa, but the reality was far from that! This year we had the good fortune to book Don and Cathy's villa and I can honestly say that the pictures and reviews do not do it justice. The villa was spotless, the pool area was very clean and tidy, the games room was well organised and there were TV's and DVD players in all rooms (not to mention the extensive film library).

Our 2 children loved the pool and would have spent the entire 2 weeks in it (why did we buy park tickets...). There were pool toys in the games room which we used and put back afterwards, and also a large fan in there as well which we used when we were playing games.

All of the furniture is immaculate, the kitchen is well stocked with more pans, plates, glasses and trays than you could ever need. The lanai is large and we ate outside every night we were in the villa.

The views from the pool area across the green are calming and peaceful, the pool itself is not overlooked at all. On our first full day at the villa there were a few hot air balloons in the sky, however we were not lucky enough to have one land on the green!

The information provided from Cathy regarding checking in and out were the most comprehensive I have ever received, there was even their personal cell phone number - outstanding service. However, as expected we experienced no problems at all and had no reason whatsoever to ever call them.

Upon leaving we foolishly left my wife's work mobile phone, and Cathy and Don found it and posted it back to us, yet more amazing service. I couldn't recommend this villa and experience any more, it truly can only be described as luxury.

You'll be our first choice when we visit again!

Owner's Response: Ian and family, We can't thank you enough for such an absolutely amazing review! We have read this many, many times, and are so grateful that you have spent a lot of your time giving such a detailed review. You have truly warmed our hearts! Our goal is to do our best every day to make our guests as happy as they can possibly be when enjoying a getaway. Your words encourage us to keep on keeping on, and always thinking of what we could most expect in a rental home ourselves. We invest much of the money earned on rentals to make improvements. Hopefully, we can continue to make people happy, and that they will want to return. Your detailed description of your stay, the property, and customer service provided is so much appreciated. We owe so much of the compliments to our home manager. She is the reason our home is so clean, and she treats our guests just as we would ourselves. I've always told her that we will only own a rental home if she will manage it, because I can't see anybody ever doing the fantastic job that she does. Your family has been such a joy, and you even left the house so neat and tidy when you left that there was little to do for our next guests. Please know that you are always welcome to be our guests in the future. It was our pleasure, for sure. Our best to you and your family! Don and Cathy

Happy Daze is a very appropriate name for this property!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at VRBO properties for the past 6 years as we have had daughters who golfed in college and their conference tourney is in this area. This is by far the best experience we have had so far - from the minute we booked the home the owner was in contact with me via email to make sure we were going to have everything we needed for our stay. The home itself was extremely clean and very well kept. Only thing that could have been better was the temperature of the home at night - very warm and not able to set the coolness any lower than 75 degrees. Also, be sure the pool heat is started before you arrive - the first day it was still pretty chilly. Other than those minor items, I would HIGHLY recommend this property for a family or couples stay!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, and your kind remarks regarding our home. We always do our best to make sure our guests are happy. Oh my goodness, I so apologize for the temperature in the home. It should have been set at a minimum of 72 degrees, which, the minimum is locked in at 72, and no lower. I wish you had contacted me, and I would have corrected the situation immediately. As for pool heat, you and I know that that should not have been a problem. I will see that that doesn’t happen again. We appreciate that you have chosen our home for your getaway.

Beautiful and spacious home

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely fabulous. The pictures do not do it any justice. The home was very clean and very spacious. I would recommend this property to anyone and I am also considering staying here again. The owners were very helpful when and if I needed them. I really enjoyed my stay and am glad we got to stay here during our vacation.

We definitely appreciate that you will recommend our home to others! Our best to you and yours, Don and Cathy

Unbeatable property, brilliant owners.

  • 5 of 5

From first contact to last (we were fleeing Hurricane Irma) Cathy was above and beyond excellent in every aspect of communication, and helpfulness. The property is perfect, beautifully tended inside and out, furnished impeccably in quality and taste, and with management on hand (next street), this has to be undervalued with a mere 5 stars.....

Owner's Response: Colin, thank you so much for a wonderful review!!! The best part of owning a vacation home is knowing that we have been a part of a successful getaway, and great memories. I appreciate your kind words very much, and I thoroughly enjoyed our communications, as well. You and your family were such a pleasure, and we hope you will come back again whenever you can. You certainly rated far more than 5 stars with us!! Thank you again! Wishing all of you good health and happiness! Cathy
