About

My wife and I have both retired now from careers in UK Air Traffic Control and we have owned our house in Florida from new since 1998. We bought it after a trip to the area where we stayed in one of the villas in the same location. We enjoyed it so much we decided we would like to have a holiday home there. We got talking to other people in the area and decided we would buy and rent out the house to cover some of the costs. We have made some improvements and some upgrades along the way and we try to visit every year to carry out further improvements. We have always had very positive feedback from clients and people seem to enjoy staying at the house. Although it is self-catering we have tried to make it a home-from-home by providing most everything you will need. Since the Corona Virus pandemic we have not been able to visit the house for nearly 3 years, so some major work we had planned has been put on hold. Hopefully in 2022 we will be able to return to Florida again. This year, 2023, the pool has been resurfaced and the deck repainted. The kitchen and the security system upgraded.

Lovely villa, felt very homely. Clean and cosy with more than you’d expect, to the point where there were things which we brought and didn’t need (adaptor plugs, electric toothbrush chargers, etc). Communication with Nick was excellent, responding to any message very promptly. We were a party of 4, so it was extremely spacious but would have been more than happy to stay here in a far bigger group. Would book again without hesitation. Thanks Nick

Having previously stayed at and enjoyed this villa and the area of Sunridge Woods, my wife and I had no hesitation in returning. Once again the owner Nick and Kim from the Management Company were excellent in ensuring the arrangements were in place for our stay. A thoroughly enjoyable and stress free holiday followed. My thanks to all.

Our stay in the super sized villa was perfect for our requirements and close to all Disney Park's. The Villa had everything we needed including the wild life to make our stay perfect. Please thank the villa owner on our behalf for all the extras, and should we plan another visit to Orlando you would be our first point of contact. Anne, Annette & Arthur

We had an amazing stay here. The villa itself is much larger than pictured and what we expected. It had everything we needed. Very clean, good facilities and location was perfect for our vacation. Many thanks to the owner for brilliant communication throughout also. Would definitely recommend and stay again if visiting!

The stay at this property was great, the instruction from the owner were spot on and the property was huge. As there was only my wife and me we felt lost. The pool was cold but quick email to owner and price for heating sorted. The only minus is that the pool could do with good TLC and for the time of year price should have heating in for the price we agreed. The drive way and property could support two families 2x double rooms 2x 2 single beds plus the the master suite. Only dropped 1 star on overall, cleanliness and value due to pool. The owner is great and responds prompt. Great location for all Disney 22min Sea world 28min and Universal 25min. The I4 gets very busy so plan routes well. Don't for get all the other places but you will need vehicle that can do miles as most are 1.5 hrs away Key's are 5.5hrs to marathon. We were only there for 11 nights but we travelled 1500 miles and saw loads what a great location to stay. Ps front door area little lizards small and chute but run like hell so guard the front door well when entering....

Dear Alex, Thank you for your very comprehensive review. It sounds like you had an enjoyable stay and did a lot of exploring. Thanks for letting us know about the pool. We intend to get it resurfaced when we are there in the summer. It is usual in Florida to have a separate charge for pool heating in the winter and, as you can imagine, it is quite an expense to run the heater as prices have gone up, as they have in theUK. Best wishes, Nick & Samia

This house is very spacious yet has a very comfy and homely feel to it, We all loved the house and surroundings From booking to during our stay, Nick was very helpful and friendly, we would definitely go back and would like to say a very big thank you to Nick as it made coming out to Florida for my son's wedding all the more special.

Thoroughly enjoyed the stay at the villa, situated on a lovely quiet and peaceful residential area with good sized rooms and pool. Lots of local wildlife and not too far from all the attractions, it was nice to get back and relax after a day out. Highly recommended and would definitely come back.

Our second stay at this villa in as many months. This primarily was because we enjoyed everything it and the location had to offer the first time around. Access to the Parks, local facilities including shopping, eating out, golf courses and a friendly area where you feel welcomed. The owner and management company again ensured our arrival and stay throughout was trouble-free. R Sutton Aberdeen.
