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 Clermont Area

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!!

The property is simply amazing. It has amazing curb appeal with beautiful flowers and a well manicured lawn. Both, the inside and outside of the house are very eye pleasing. The pool area is well designed and spotless. A must stay!

Relaxing week away!

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from celebrating the first week of the new year at Cathy and Don's home. The home's layout was perfect for our group that included our seven month old. My parents joined us and were able to have their own space in the master suite on the opposite side of the home. It was exceptionally convenient that the home had a pack and play, high chair, and two strollers for our use! Very glad we didn't have bring any of those things on our flight.

The community was very quiet and backyard/pool area provided a wonderful, relaxed atmosphere. Publix and Walmart were both a very short drive away. We found ourselves spending more time at the home and less at Orlando's attractions than we had planned. We did enjoy a trip to Disney Springs (35 minute drive) and explored the very nearby Lake Louisa State Park.

We had some difficulty organizing the pool heat with the management company, but were able to enjoy the pool for most of the week. Cathy made herself very accessible and accommodating in this matter.

We would recommend to our friends and family!

This beautiful and comfortable home was perfect for our special grandparent Christmas adventure. Three generations of us totally enjoyed the beauty and convenience of this wonderful property. The home is immaculate and fully appointed with everything needed to relax and have a great time. We spent 7 days at Disney World. Happy Daze is in a lovely quiet neighborhood an easy distance to the parks. We could start out early and return in the afternoon for some R & R. My granddaughters ages 6 and 10 enjoyed the private pool immensely, and it was perfect to soothe tired bodies.

The Claytons have thought of everything for your comfort like reclining great room furniture, 5 TVs, a game system, a wonderfully appointed kitchen. Being able to do laundry was huge benefit. Customer service was outstanding from the owners and their manager Marion. The visitors manual Cathy created gave us every bit of information we needed.

The location was just perfect with shopping close by and a great selection of restaurants in the area. We will be recommending Happy Daze to all family and friends. Taking my grandkids to WDW is an important item on my bucket list, and when our son's baby girl is older we will repeat this wonderful trip. We can't imagine any place better to stay in the Orlando area.

Happy Daze is totally amazing and the service provided by Cathy and Don is absolutely first class!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing villa to base your trip to Florida around!

Happy Daze was immaculately clean; very tastefully furnished with the most comfortable beds; excellent televisions (if you chose to use them), amazing wi-fi and a superb swimming pool with views. We all slept soundly every night after a day out and about the parks or doing other activities.

The customer service offered by Cathy and Don was better than I could ever have expected! You would always get a reply to any questions asked and mostly within a hour or 2. The management company is also fantastic.

In the morning you can get up and watch the hot air balloons rising in the distance as the pool is not overlooked from the back. You look out over a grassy field. The neighbourhood is quiet and friendly.

Happy Daze villa is close enough to the parks so that at the end of the day you can sit back and relax after a busy day and be totally at one. At night you are able to see some of the Disney fireworks from the sun deck.

The villa is fantastic and Cathy and Don just make your holiday that extra bit special.

Thanks very much our stay at your villa was 'totally awesome dude'

The sun is on the deck nearly all day, as a result the pool temperature is always spot on.

I have to say that this is bar far the best villa we have stayed during numerous holidays to Florida and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anybody
