About Alexia and Minno Venema

We are a family of 4, living in the Netherlands.. Key for us is the outdoor lifestyle Florida has to offer. Florida also known as the Sunshine state offers plenty of sunshine year round..We like to have breakfast, lunch and BBQ diners on the patio and to enjoy the very spacious pool and pool area.. With the entertainement capital of the world within easy reach, we never have a dull moment and lot's of family fun vacations..

Alexia and Minno Venema purchased this villa in 2006

Why Alexia and Minno Venema chose Disney / Orlando

After years of owning a villa in the Disney Area, we decided to sell our villa and custom build a new one.. in an area nearby to offer us more privacy and more tranquillity.. Nature noises, in stead of traffic and vacationers screaming in the pool next door till late at night.. That's why we choose for Nature's Edge at Lake Pierce.. More space in- and around the villa, more relaxation and Florida's beautiful nature all around you. We liked to have a luxerious masterbathroom, a wood burned fireplace & a spacious kitchen.. Everything what we liked on a family home is here to make our or your stay as comfortable as possible..

What makes this villa unique

Situated only 15 miles from LegoLand Florida and only 30 car minutes from Walt Disney World is attractions wise an unique benifit. Also the Bok Tower Garden is very nice to visit year round if you like a spiritual, nature like experience. The gardens also futures Florida's oldest vacation home open for visitors. Bok Tower is situated at Florida highest point above sea level. Lake Pierce at the end of the straat is very easy to fish, by renting a boat at Jennings Resort, where you can rent your gear and bait. The area is known as 'the bass (fish) capital of the world'.Playing golf is attractive at Lake Bess Golf and Country Club and several other great courses like the Diamond Back Golf & Country club, The Grenelefe Golf & Tennis Resort and of course the award winning courses at WDW and Champions Gate. Most of all it's the environment that makes it all special.. Tranquillity, overwhelming nature with lot's of lakes and even a hilly countryside. If you have been visiting the Disney Area a lot, it will be surprisingly different to stay here with us and will give you a new perspective on your stay in the Disney Area, with the 'Entertainement Capital of the World as ever within reach.. In short, you have the option to choose whatever you like depending on your mood without the stress of missing something during your holiday..

Guestbook comments from the owner

Alexia, Minno et leurs enfants sont des personnes extrêmement sympathiques et nous avons été ravis de cet échange avec eux. Tout a été parfait et s'est déroulé sans le moindre souci.

Nous avons beaucoup aimé la maison à Haynes City. Elle est extrêmement bien équipée et nous y avons passé de supers moments. L'intérieur est très spacieux et confortable. L'extérieur est parfait pour se reposer, se baigner et faire des barbecues.

De plus, elle est très bien placée pour visiter Orlando et tous ses parcs.

Cette expérience a été un vrai succès !!

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here as it was great to have the peace and quiet after chasing round the theme parks all day. This was our first holiday in the USA and this house made it so much more comfortable than staying in a hotel. Our 9 year old daughter loved the pool so much we had to fight to get her out off it every evening. The recommendations in the welcome pack for eating out etc. were spot on and we would love to stay here again the next time we come across. Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your lovely home Alexia and Minno, we had a blast.

Ok but not great

  • 2 of 5

Our information on how to enter the house was incorrect. If it weren't for the patio door being unlocked, we would have had to find a hotel. The hot tub has only one working jet and no switch to turn up the power. I called the caretaker about it, but never received a return call. The bed in the master bedroom is rock hard and very uncomfortable. We will not rent this house again.

Owner's Response: Dear Traveller, We're sorry that your four days stay was not up to your standard. For some reason you did not receive the new code in time, the door lock was damaged and we need to replace it before your arrival. We've never had any complaints about the master bed, so that's something personal. The switch to turn on the power for the hot tub is located at the pool equipment, that switch turns on the jets. That information is written in our manual and in the guest book. Regards, Alexia and Minno Venema

Fantastic, very large villa in a lovely, quiet area - lots of birds and wildlife

  • 5 of 5

We chose this villa having read most of the reviews - as we were quite happy to drive a fair way 'home' to somewhere quiet after a day at the parks in Orlando. This is something that really needs to be taken into account - as other reviewers have said : this villa is not ideal if you want to be very close to Orlando and the parks (Disney/Universal Studios etc) - there is a lot of driving involved. If, like us, this is not a problem then this is the perfect villa for you! It lies on the corner of a very quiet street on a disused golf course very close to Lake Pierce - there's lots of birds (vultures, eagles, cranes etc.) and we saw lots of lizards and the odd armadillo! The roads in the area are very quiet and scenic (lots of orange groves) with a few Publix supermarkets not too far away. The villa itself is very large, clean and comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen and lovely big bedrooms and bathrooms. The photos don't do it justice really - we were surprised how big it actually was. The air conditioning works well - the main bedroom was lovely and cool within minutes of switching it on. The pool area was a good size and with lots of furniture - there's also plenty of inflatables to lie on and play with in the pool. Booking the villa and dealing with Alexia was very easy and efficient, and our hostess Jill was very helpful when we arrived and couldn't gain access due to a misunderstanding (on our part) with the keycode. She was there within minutes to let four very tired bodies in. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa and we really hope we can return in the not-too-distant future. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

PS - don't forget to eat at Cherry Pocket Steak & Seafood Shack just a few minutes drive away - it really is a shack - but the food, the service and the atmosphere is great - in a gorgeous setting next to the lake.

Great stay, perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Villa was easy to rent, Alexia got back to us right away to book, and was gracious when we asked for an early check-in and late check out. We had a minor issue with the power, and both Jill, the property manager, and Alexia responded immediately and resolved the issue.

The villa itself was perfect for our needs, from the living areas, to the pool and bbq, and we were happy to see that it was stocked with dishes, pots, etc. to use. Thanks also for the welcome bottle of wine! We enjoyed it out by the pool one evening.

Location wise, we could not have asked for better! It was in a quiet neighborhood, away from the hustle and bustle of Orlando, yet convenient enough to get to Disney and for dinner on evenings we ate out. Walmart and Publix were about 15 minutes away, and we were able to quickly stock up on what we needed for the week.

Overall, it was a great week, and I would not hesitate to rent this villa again.

The property was excellent and all that is stated on the website is correct.

  • 5 of 5

Meet by Jill who was friendly and approachable. She helped us with a couple of minor issues. The property is large and had everything required for our stay. The kitchen and bathroom are an excellent size along with a great double garage with plenty of room for our large hire car.

The pool is a good size with a safety fence for any children.

Lots of different wildlife around the villa in which we enjoyed very much. Most places can be found within an hours drive and would recommend Kissimmee for a good night out (Old Town) on a Friday or Saturday.

Our villa is located only 10 minutes (13,5 miles) from LEGOLAND FLORIDA in Winter Haven! This 150-acre family theme park, located in Winter Haven, offers more than 50 rides, shows and attractions geared for families with children ages 2 to 12 and ultimate LEGO fans. Just a 45 min. from Orlando Airport, 30 min. car drive (34 miles) from Walt Disney World and other attractions such as Seaworld, Universal Studios and 'Aquatica' in Seaworld. Also near to the highest point of Florida, where you will find Bok Tower Gardens, as a perfect spiritial getaway!

The big benefit of our location is on top of our closeness to LegoLand that you reach Disney from a different direction to the 100s of people staying in Kissimmee. They may well be stuck in a traffic jam along the HW192 whilst you will drive straight in! You are also nearer to both the Gulf and Atlantic coasts. You can shop 'til you drop' at many discount malls and eat out at very reasonable prices in a huge choice of restaurants.

Other Activities: Boat rental at Jennings Resort to fish and boat at Lake Pierce.

Golf: There are about 60 golf courses in the neighbourhood, for instance within 10 miles you'll find The Grenelefe golf and country club in Haines City. Also you will find the Lake Bess Golf & Country Club on only 10 carminutes in Winter Haven, children till 14 play FREE!

The nearest PGA courses you will find at Champion Gate Four Corners, Reunion in Davenport and of course the excellent golf courses at Walt Disney World within a 30 minutes car drive.

Play golf year round on these golfcourses, thanks to the great Florida weather!
