About brigitte palmer

UPDATED 2016 The villa is family owned by my husband, 4 children and their partners and myself. We have visited the area several times and fell in love with the peaceful and relaxing pace of life, at the same time have the you can go to the parks for the thrills and the noise

We only brought our holiday home in June 2010 and every time we visit we upgrade a bit more.

As a family we looking forward to coming out to Florida to visit the places those visitors do not often see.

We have a web site for you to visit for more pictures.

brigitte palmer purchased this villa in 2010

Why brigitte palmer chose Lake Wilson Preserve

The property is eight years old and it is on preserve, so very private, there are only 12 villas in the cul de sac, this makes it a great place to come back to at the end of a busy day.

The major theme parks are only a short car ride away, mall shopping is also within easy reach. For every day shopping need there is a supermarket and pharmacy within walking distance.

What makes this villa unique

The property is all on one level so it is accessible for all ages. As it is in a quiet cul de sac there is very traffic, so feels very safe. We love to be able to dine outside at any time of the day, and to be able to enjoy the pool. If it is very hot in the middle of the day it is great to go inside and be cooled off by the air-conditioning.

We use it as a place to come and totally relax.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely, well presented villa with a great pool. Excellent location, local shops and restaurants near by with great access to all the parks, shopping malls and beaches. Had a wonderful relaxing break with all the family. Would stay again!

Absolutely wonderful, a luxury home-from-home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVE this place! Here's a list of the reasons why:

It's massive - so big and airy, fabulous communal spaces and privacy, when desired, in the bedrooms.

Everything is superbly stocked and thought-out. The kitchen is utterly usable - not just the basic equipment but the things you really use when you actually live (rather than 'stay') in a home. More silverware, crocks and utensils than you need (even for a big party of 6, like ours) so no need to put the dishwasher on more than once a day.

The garage contained so many useful surprises! Inflatables and toys for the pool (our 7-year old absolutely adored spending time in the pool every single day!), ponchos for rainy afternoons at the theme parks, table tennis, pool table, pool towels, you name it! All the thing you don't necessarily look for, when searching for a holiday villa, but which make the big difference when you're there.

The washer and drier got used a lot! It was brilliant to have an airer/clothes horse, as well as plenty of space to hang drying laundry.

The fan outside on the deck was a great touch, as we loved relaxing out there but the 35 degree heat sometimes made that somewhat less than relaxing!

The location is superb - 15 mins from Disney, 30 mins from Universal, 5 mins from the Publix supermarket, liquor store and pharmacy. The whole of Lake Wilson Preserve is quiet and tranquil, especially so with this villa, as it is at the end of a cul-de-sac, so no passing traffic at all.

One other thIng, that you might take for granted until you go somewhere where it is not the case (as we found at our next stop on our trip, in Colorado!), is how beautifully clean the whole place was when we arrived - we could not find a single thing to complain about. The inclusion of enough kitchen roll, toilet roll, dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid to get us started was brilliant, as was the provision of a washing up sponge, tea towels and hand soap in all the bathrooms.

We felt welcome, treated it as our own home and with the respect that such a well thought-out place naturally encourages its visitors to do. Many thanks to Brigitte and John and to the local property managers for providing this wonderful place to experience the parks and attractions that so many people come to Florida to do!

From the Mansfield and Lammas families, from Coventry and Cambridge, UK. July 2017.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for a great review, for us it is like a second home, but without a great management company to put in all those little things that help you settle in we could not offer such a great package. Hope to have you as a guest again. Brigitte and John

The new owner and management do not care

  • 1 of 5

The previous owner and management were very professional and great to deal with. All the previous rave reviews are mostly true.

However, this property underwent an ownership switch during our stay and after that, things went downhill. The new owner never contacted us about the switch, let alone any greetings. We lost cable TV and internet service in the last couple of days of our stay after the new owner took over, and no one seems to care to resolve this problem. Actually it is a common issue that every home owner would encounter when moving to a new place. Just contact your cable provider and prearrange it, they will be happy to make sure you don't lose a single day of service.

Because the new owner never contacted us, we needed to seek help from the previous owner to forward our request for service, although obviously generated no help. To be fair, the new management team did eventually send one person to come over to "restart our wifi router" as if it would solve the problem, well, it didn't.

So our stay ends with a very unhappy note. I hope the future tenants will be aware that the previous good reviews might be irrelevant for your stay as you are going to deal with a different team.

Excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Florida numerous times and this is one of the best villas we have stayed in.

Brigitte is very easy to deal with and Ian from the management brilliant even mending a puncture on one of the bikes(we didn’t have any other problems )

The villa is in a really quiet and peaceful area and still very near to supermarkets etc.

We would definitely have booked again if it was available

Perfect Villa and Location 5 ****

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a wonderful stay at this lovely villa. Great location for all Parks, shopping etc and is also a peaceful retreat to enjoy relaxing around the pool, we had the pool heated for our 6 week stay and this was so worth it. Villa has everything you could wish for and was particularly impressed with the great maintenance company that make sure everything is taken care of. Loved the new Cinema at Posner Park and can't beat the great supermarket just down the road. We highly recommend this well maintained holiday villa and thank the owners for a wonderful stay at a very reasonable price. Hope to return.
