Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been wintering in FL since 2006. We have not stayed more than once at any other home except this one: Evening Song in the Water Song development. Over the years, we prefer a gated community for added security over a home that is not gated. We have enjoyed this home so much that we are going to stay there for a third winter. It is spacious with comfort and privacy for us and our guests. The kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances. There are plenty of place settings for our guests. We really like the pool area and the seclusion of the lot without back yard neighbors. When the weather is warmer we enjoy grilling meals and dining outside. Unlike other property owners, we find Eric very accessible and responsive to our needs. We especially like the welcome package provided by the property management with breakfast groceries to start our next day after our long drive and unpacking. Golfing in the area is great with courses of varying difficulty and price. The house is located near the theme parks, but not so close that you are in the day-to-day traffic. Trips to either coast is just two hours or less away. Our favorite activities include the Silver Spurs rodeo, Lakeland theater shows at the Convention Center, dining at the restaurants in Celebration and at Manny's Chop House.

Great Villa, superb pool and spa.

  • 5 of 5

Villa was lovely - perfect for us and our three children. We stayed for 11 nights in total, this being the last part of our road trip that started in New York some 10 nights prior - it was a welcome relief knowing the villa was everything that we hoped for and was exactly as described; the owners Eric and Jean were very responsive to our questions (even took the bother of phoning us directly to answer some queries). A good information pack was sent through with everything you needed to know once the booking was paid for.

Villa was clean and tidy, and obviously still quite a new build as Watersong still has a number of villas being built on this very secure complex. (Gated entry appeared to be manned 24/7). Air Conditioning worked well, along with Internet, Cable TV (with some decent channels available as well!) and a well equipped kitchen.

The heated pool was a good size compared to other villas we looked at, plus had a decent Spa/Jacuzzi - the kids thoroughly enjoyed it. A decent amount of pool side towels was available as well which was most welcomed. Pool deck got the sun all day, with part of this area under cover that did provide some relief from the Florida Sun.

This is our third visit to Florida as a family where we've rented villas/houses directly with the owners, and this has been one of the best so far. Highly recommend!

Lovely property in gated community.

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 2 weeks at this lovely villa. Very clean and well maintained. Service from owner and management company excellent. Villa had everything we needed and more. Pool and pool area wonderful and not overlooked. Close to shops and restaurants with Disney about 20 minutes away. Would recommend.

Great Villa in Central Florida

  • 5 of 5

Recently returned from our winter getaway to Florida and a Caribbean Cruise. While in Florida we stayed in Eric’s Watersong Villa which was perfect for our needs. The home was clean, fully stocked, in a convenient location and gated which we prefer when traveling. We enjoyed the pool and spa which was heated, had a southern facing direction and open space view. We travel several times a year since retiring and use Homeaway and VRBO for our stays. Watersong is a good location in central Florida and Eric’s Villa is a wonderful choice within the development. We are now planning a return visit to Florida in early 2018 and Watersong will be high on our list of places to stay.

The villa was very clean and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed when we arrived. The villa exceeded our expectations. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything needed to cook and bake. The pool was so amazing, it was hard to get the kids to go to the theme parks, they would of rather stayed and played at the villa our entire stay. Management was very helpful, caring and on top of everything. I was very impressed with Andrew especially. Our experience was perfect. It was truly an amazing and comfortable vacation because we felt at home in the villa. The pool was huge! It was very clean and well maintained. Thanks Taylor Family for letting us holiday in your home. Best vacation ever!!!

Luxury home from home !!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property in an excellent location to Disney / Legoland. The pool was fantastic with the added treat of the heated spa. The owner is a gent and the transaction was simple and efficient. We've started saving already for our return to Orlando and we'll definitely be staying here again.
