|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
Located in Orange Tree, a premium community situated off Highway 27 and 2.5 miles North of US 192, Osprey House is a spacious family villa, offering first class amenities with a stunning view over an unspoiled conservation area but close to all of Central Florida's attractions. With 5 bedrooms, two masters with en suite bathrooms, two twins and a further double, a spacious well equipped kitchen, dining room, airy family room, a 40'x15' swimming pool and patio, and for those days where it is just too hot, a games room with a pool table and air hockey table this provides superb accommodation for a truly special vacation.
Please note, minimum rental period is 4 nights.
The vacation home was very nice and we really enjoyed ourselves the kids could not stay out of the pool we had a tournament at Disney and we can't wait to go back
The villa was clean, well equipped, and comfortable, and quickly felt like home. The Orange Tree community is quiet and attractive, with lots of green space and trees. The larger than average pool was lovely (we paid for heating in April), and the extended and private deck meant we could find sun or shade all through the day. The location was very quiet, and the view from the deck was excellent - a large green area to the rear, with woods beyond, looking into the sunrise. We saw lots of birds including sandhill cranes, swallowtail kites, and a bald eagle, and could see the Disney fireworks in the evening. Indoors, we enjoyed the games room, TV, paperbacks and - very important for the teenager - wi-fi internet.
The location was very convenient for supermarkets (Publix and a huge Walmart within a short drive), and several places to eat along Hwy 27 and 192 (we enjoyed breakfast at Ponderosa, and the buffet at Golden Corral around marker 5 on 192). It was a little further from the theme parks than some villa communities, but only around 20 minutes to Disney; however over the busy Easter period, traffic on the main 192 route could get heavy and slow, making it quite a bit longer. If you're planning to visit the parks every day and/or pop home for an afternoon nap, it might not be ideal. If like us you're planning lots of pool and sunbathing time, and less time in the parks, or staying at a quieter time of year, then the pleasant peaceful location is worth the extra drive.
Booking, payment and checking in all worked very smoothly, and our deposit was returned promptly. While we were there, we spoke to the management company about a minor issue and they were very friendly and helpful. We had a great time here, and were very happy with the villa.
We have been to Florida several times and usually stayed in a villa in Kissimmee however that was not available for the week we wanted. We found osprey house on home away and we were not sure what to expect, however we were pleasantly surprised!
The house was very clean and extremely spacious. The pool was much bigger than ones we have previously had and the kids really loved the games room. We were really close to the local attractions and enjoyed watching the Disney fireworks every night in the garden.
The rates were very reasonable and the owners were extremely helpful sorting out our booking.
We would defiantly book this villa again and would recommend it.
