Overview

Since we bought a house on this estate we have had some of the best times of our lives there. When we decided to buy a second and bigger house, we looked everywhere in Central Florida, at all the old and new estates, but we kept coming back to Crescent Lakes. The estate is lovely. It is built in the middle of the conservation area and you will see eagles and cranes flying overhead as you laze in the spa. The rear view is outstanding as the covered and heated pool backs onto one of the lakes. When we saw this house for sale we knew it was a dream come true. It has over 2700 square foot of living space and has been beautifully furnished by a professional team in 2005. In 2014 we refurbished a good deal of it with new bedding and furniture from top end stores. We absolutely love it there and our kids cry whenever we come back from Crescent Lakes. It is only 15 to 20 minutes from the edge of Disney and Universal and Seaworld are only a few more minutes away. Down the road you will find an animal petting zoo, horse riding stables, and boat rides on the massive lakes to see alligators in their natural habitat. (In season you can also go nightime alligator hunting if you are feeling brave!) . There is an array of excellent golf courses only 10 minutes away. We have tried to put into the house as many extras as we can to make your holiday perfect. There is a tennis court available for free on the estate as well as a basketball court , great kiddies park with adults exercise machines so you can work out and keep an eye on your kids at the same time! There is a brochure in the house with directions to and from all of the facilities and some helpful hints to aid your enjoyment of Orlando. Have a look below at some of the many extras in our gorgeous home.

What's downstairs?
The home has two lounges: the first has a 55 inch flat screen smart tv with dvd and video (a number of dvd films have been left at the home for your use). There's cable tv with over 70 channels. There is also the option to watch live premier league games. There is a Bose cd player with radio and beautiful furnishings with french doors onto the pool and spa area. The second lounge is at the front of the home and again is furnished exceptionally well. The 'photo on this web page is of the second lounge.

It is covered by a mesh surround which allows sun to get in (factor 15 protection) There is also a spa in the pool (this is not separately heated) and a large deck and covered lanai to get out of the sun. Luxury patio furniture including 4 loungers, table and chairs allow you to watch the sun go down over the lake with marguerita in hand.

Stayed Sunday 26 October 2014 with Family
Wow what a fantastic house to stay in for our family. We were a family of four and on arrival we thought there was plenty of room for more another family to join us. The house is so spacious and the decor just right all over the house. The kitchen was well equipped and was open plan which is great for a family on holiday. The living area for the evening by the TV was comfortable and the TV huge which the boys loved. Plenty of DVDs too. Bathrooms had powerful showers and plenty of towels and the beds were good quality which meant a good nights sleep. The outside area was very nice with an enclosed pool area by the lake. It was a lovely warm pool and great to hang out by the pool and watch the birds fish and fly above. The boys loved playing ping pong in the garage when the sun went in. Our eldest son also tried his luck at fishing the lake which we discovered didnt need a licence as he was under 16. He didnt catch anything unfortunately. We wish we had had time for two weeks and would love to stay again and visit the places we didnt have time to on this trip.

We had such a beautiful time here. I cannot wait to come back. I enjoyed every single inch of the property. The rooms were very spacious and the house overall was gorgeous and offered more than what I thought it would. I love it! My family loved it and I will be back next year. The pool was sooo awesome! Everything was within close distance so that was a plus. Thank you again you will see us soon!! The Larkins Family....

We stayed at 2521 Calla lily cove for two weeks in August 2012 4th-18th. We have stayed in a couple of villas in Florida before so our expectations were high from the start, we were all hoping that it would be as nice as the last property we rented in Clearwater. Well, we werent disappointed. It is situated in a lovely spot on the lake, great for sitting by the pool, relaxing with a Sam Adams. The villa is very well equipped, there wasnt one thing we wanted for or had to purchase during our stay. The rooms are a good size. The master bedroom is huge ! with its en-suite bathroom with his and her sinks. That bed ! I know everything in the US is supposed to be bigger than the UK but that bed in the master bedroom is massive ! We have a kingsize at home that now feels like a single. The garage is well equipped as a games room, with table tennis, air hockey, table football and bikes all of which are in great condition. The managment/maintenance guy was very friendly when we need him for the pool. Disney, Universal and Sea world etc are all a short drive away (as everything is in Florida) if you are doing Florida for the first time and havent got car hire... get it now ! No matter where you stay you need a car to go places. Nothing is in walking distance of anywhere else in florida (i was going to call a cab just to get around the bed !) Anyway..... I suppose it comes down to one question really.... Q. Would we stay at 2521Calla lily cove again? A. Definately. We loved it, the teenage kids (16 & 13) loved it, if you can keep these two moody blighters happy for more than two hours you are on a winner. We would like to say thankyou to the owners for a memorable stay in a lovely villa. Thankyou. Did i mention the humongous bed ?

Spacious accommodation in relaxing location. We had a great holiday and our questions on site were answered promptly. There were plenty of towels and pool towels available and the pool was a good size, looking over a pretty lake. The villa was an easy drive to DisneyWorld. There were only a few minor problems but they were significant. The master bed was comfortable but our teenage children found the other beds uncomfortable and squeaky. The kitchen could have been better equipped with some mixing and serving bowls and we couldnt find enough table mats to protect the beautiful dining table. The main problem however which may seem trivial but made life extremely difficult was the blunt knives. We literally had to saw our food. Easily fixed, Im sure.
Owner reply:

Thanks for your comments. I am glad you had a great holiday and enjoyed the house (I think!). I did speak to the manager about your issues and he said he visited you on site and no mention was made of any problems. He said he had a long chat with your husband and reported to me everything was fine. If you had mentioned these minor issues to him he would have resolved them for you. I wish you had rather than leaving disappointed in any way. He is excellent and although most of our bookings over the last year or so haven't come from this site our guests from other sites speak very very highly of him. Usually whenever we go out to the house we replace minor things such as blunt knives but we haven't had a chance to get out for a year or so so I accept you may be right. Anyway the manager went straight out and replaced the knives--easily done if we know about it. As or the beds I am not sure about this. Again no one else has complained but I will ask him to keep an eye on this issue. Martin and Claire

A wonderful Villa with a good sized pool and beautiful outlook. We have stopped in many villas and this was by far the best furnished and equipped. Definitely has a wow factor. Internet connection recently upgraded to a good reliable broadband connection with Wi-Fi throughout the villa, and I was even able to use my laptop outside by the pool! I would highly recommend this villa.

Fantastic time, this is our second visit to this villa, it was like returning home, Martin and Claire really make sure that you are cared for and we would like to say a big thank you to them and their family for their kindness. If you have children the welcome pack is a must. We would not hesitate in recommending this villa to our friends and family and cant wait for our next visit.

Having been let down at the last minute with our original booking, we were so relieved to find this house at such short notice that we didnt really consider what it might be like - we were just grateful to have somewhere to stay! From the moment the initial enquiry was made, the owners were in contact and kept up their communication with us throughout our stay. Nothing was too much for them. The house itself is magnificent, with a sense of space that is instantly relaxing. Tastefully furnished throughout and with every appliance you can think of. There were only four of us so we rattled around a little but, if I were to go back to Florida, I would book this house again without hesitation. It is ideally situated for all the major theme parks, restaurants and shops - yet its secluded enough to allow you to kick back and relax by the pool. We all enjoyed our stay tremendously and I would have no hesitation at all in recommending the house to any future visitors. Its just a shame we had to come back, really . . .

I always believe reviews are an excellent way of choosing a villa, and this was one of the reasons we chose this one. This is the third florida villa I have stayed in, and was by far and away the best! The villa felt homely from walking in and was well decorated and clean. The guide book in the villa was extremely helpful and clearly written and the owners very nice and polite. I would definitely recommend this villa and would consider coming back again. An excellent choice to help make your holiday extra special!

Fantastic house. We were looking forward to staying at this house anyway but now we have been we can honestly say that this villa totally made our holiday special. Stayed in a few different villas in florida before and this one tops the lot. The facilities, views, and decor were all magnificent and the owners were a joy to deal with. We had a couple of queries before we went and they were responded to very swiftly. We cannot recommend this house enough and we will certainly be back. Thank you.

This villa is wonderful. It has a larger than average pool and the furniture and fittings are of an exceptional standard. The house was very clean and tidy when we arrived.

Look no further! If you want a really spacious comfortable home from home, with that extra touch of luxury for an instantly relaxing family holiday, then this really is the villa for you. Our third visit to Florida and this the best property we have stayed in by far. This large, extremely smart, and spotlessly clean villa is situated about half an hour's easy drive to the main theme parks in a quiet residential development in the countryside well away from main roads. The stunning lakeside vista and local birdlife are enchanting, breakfast outside with the sun rising over the lake and swimming in the pool by moonlight both experiences that should not be missed. Our children loved chilling out in front of the giant TV in the lounge after a tiring day at the theme parks. Very comfortable and well equipped and particularly suitable for one or two families (or extended family) to share, with a particularly enormous master bedroom suite, we would have no hesitation recommending this property to others. Difficult to understand why anyone would ever want to pay a fortune to stay in a noisy, cramped hotel... Highly recommended.

The property is excellent value for money. The owners have done an excellent job in making you feel like you are at home and not just in a rental villa. We were so impressed we reduced our plans to visit Tampa for a week following our visit to Orlando and booked an extra few days at the villa. As is the case in most of America, it will be essential to have a car to get to the villa and to travel to theme parks etc, but these are all within approximately 20 minutes drive of the villa. We will definately be booking again the next time we visit the states. The owners Martin and Claire and the management company they use have been excellent and really helpful throughout the whole process.

As all the other reviews have said feels really homely. Spotlessly clean. Table tennis air hockey ps2 and a great pool. Got the use of the sat nav from the owner which really helped. Really peaceful estate and not too far from parks and malls etc. Thanks to the owners again will definitelt be back- excellent value.

When we first got to the house our jaws dropped. If this was our house there is no way we would rent it out. It is absolutely fabulous. My wife and her friend sat staring at the curtains wondering how we could make them for our own home back in the UK. It is furnished superbly and I agree with what other people have said: the 'photos don't do it justice. It's like a filmstars house. It made our holiday and we are definitely coming back. Villarenters site also excellent by the way.

This was our fifth visit to Florida and this house was the best that we have stayed in. It was very spacious and contained everything that anyone could need. I had the pool heated (which I would recommend to anyone staying, like we did, in November) and this made the lazy days by the pool far more pleasurable. We had great contact from the owners and the management company and would return to this property in an instant.

This property was the best we have ever rented. We have been renting for the last five years and this house top it off. the booking system was easy and the contact with the owner was a nice touch. this house had everything you could imagine and even more. The biggest surprise was: we were traveling with infant twins of nine months, they thought ahead and had two beds set up for us for the babies. We were not expecting this at all. the only negative thing and this really wasnt that negative, we were far awary from attractiona and stores. Our jacuzzi did not heat up for us either. But all was good and i would definitely return and reccommend this property

The house was beautiful and it was perfect for us. All the little extras were appreciated as well. Beautiful setting. The management company was very helpful when the internet didnt work properly. They were quick to respond. Here are some suggested improvements. Kitchen is well stocked, but the knives really need to be replaced. The garbage can does not open and close properly, perhaps replace this too. The flooding problem in the front garden really should be fixed. The stagnant water and mold is not very good. The information in the welcome book is out of date including the info about the second key and the garage door opener. The prices for the parks and the maps all need to be updat ed as well. We would highly recommend the property to friends and family. Thank you, Krysten
Owner reply:

Thanks for your comments and I am glad you enjoyed it and would recommend it. In answer to your points: the garbage lid has been replaced endless times. The bin men run over it which is why it never completely fits but I dont think that really is a problem. I had the managing agent look at the water issue you refer to. He tells me there is no problem and there is no stagnant water or mold! I think you went in the rainy season and when it rains it really does rain. Those houses do not have rainwater drainage so the water stays in puddles in the flower beds but it dries out quickly and is usually gone the next day. When the agent went there there was no problem and no mold and no one else has ever mentioned it. As for the info in the welcome book it is pretty comprehensive but the prices are out of date. Disney change their prices all the time as you will appreciate. The welcome book is merely intended as a guide and I do not as a rule re-print the book when there is a price rise. But that it is a small point as I am sure you will appreciate. Regards Martin

This was our first time renting a vacation home and while I loved the idea of it I have to admit I was a little nervous that what would actually be waiting for my family and I at our desitnation may not live up to our expectations/images portrayed. Villa Renters rating system made me feel more comfortable and dealing with Marin (property owner) also helped greatly. I have to say that we were more then pleased with Martins beautiful home and its location. Martin was very responsive to any questions I had in the initial stages and even called us the week before we departed to wish us a safe and enjoyable time. THe house was clean and had everything you could ever need. Pack light, no need for hairdryers, towels, not even the sunblock!!! I would recommend Martin Browns home to anyone! OH and I cant close without saying how much we enjoyed the pool and the view! (we even saw the Alligator several times)!

The property was wonderful, and our family/guests enjoyed the open floor plan. However, we strongly suggest that renters secure alternative directions to the location. The directions provided by the rental management company are poor, at best, and delayed our arrival to the house.
Owner reply:

Well first of all I am glad to hear the property lived up to your expectations and that you all enjoyed yourselves. However, I do wonder if there is some confusion about the directions. The rental management company do not provide directions- you get them (actually two sets) emailed from this site when funds are paid. I did email this guest before they left to ensure they had everything but I didn't get a response so assumed it was all ok. The directions are only from the airport but I went to a great deal of trouble to ensure they were comprehensive as are all of the directions in the helpsheets left at the house; everyone else has been happy with them and in fact we have had a lot of complimentary comments about the information and directions as evidenced by the reviews on this page. So I am a bit confused that the guest found them unsatisfactory. I wonder if the guest had the right directions with them. In any event I'll review them to make sure but once again I am glad that you liked the house as that is the most imortant thing. Martin

The house was spacious and spotlessly clean.The swimming pool was large and if you pay for the heating you will notice it ,unlike other properties.The book of tips was fantastic and enormously helpful.It included door to door directions and non Disney alternatives which we tried and loved. The property exceeded expectations and the description on the website was accurate which is sadly not always the case. I will definitely return here if I ever need accommodation near Disney.

We have stayed in a number of villas and this was by far the best. The descriptions and photographs were very accurate. My wife, who is very particular and extemely house proud, was delighted when she walked in to find a highly specced and homely place to spend our vacation.

Lucky for us this was our fourth visit to the Sunshine State and our first time in a Villa. This house is not a Villa but a beautifull home, you can tell that every care has been taken to make your stay the best it can be and the owners have not failed in any area. Clare and Martin were so helpfull with information and tips before we left and this carried on with the information we found at the house. We have showed so many people the pictures and the video's since we got back and their re-action has been the same as ours..WOW...To wake up in the mornig and swim in the pool was always the start to some great days and not all of them with Mickey.My children are 18 and 16 and this was said to be our last family holiday all together, I can see that changing when we book for next year.

This was our first ever visit to Florida and our first time staying in a villa. It's an amazing house and it is true the photos don't do it justice. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Calla Lily Cove and would definitely recommend it to anyone. If you want a holiday in Florida that has something a little bit extra, book this villa- you wont be disappointed.

WE ENJOYED THE PROPERTY IMMENSELY, IT WAS A SHAME THE POOL WAS NOT HEATED THAT WEEK DUE TO IT BEING BROKEN DOWN BUT TO BE FAIR TO MARTIN HE RANG US AND APOLOGISED AND ALSO REFUNDED OUR FEE. WE BRAVED THE COLD IN THE POOL AND HAD AN EXCELLENT TIME THERE. THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR PROPERTY WITH US.
Owner reply:

That was a real shame. The client was only at the house for a week and we couldn't get the pool man out to fix the pool heat in time as it was a matter covered by the pool warranty rather than just a routine maintenance issue. Glad you enjoyed it anyway and the pool heat is back on now.Martin

What a wonderful house, great location with nice views overlooking a lake; nice and peacful after a busy day in the theme parks. The house was beautifully furnished with lots of personal touches which made it feel very homely and comfortable to be in. The location is perfect for visting the theme parks, horse riding, petting farm, airboat rides and other local attractions and restaurants - Denny's for breakfast and Olive Garden for good meals out and take aways. In addition to this we were really impressed with the information and communication provided by Martin the owner before travelling - this helped plan a more organised and enjoyable trip for first timers. GREAT - we'd definitely re-book again! Tony, Bec, April and Jay

It comes as no surprise that this villa is heavily booked and I bet by repeat visitors ( we will be back ) . This was our sixth rented villa in the area and was way ahead on quality , location , views , layout. Martin the owner was brilliant and provided all the information you could need right up to the day we flew out. This villa will really make your holiday one to remember.

We had a wonderful time, but was nice really nice to be able to come home from the hustle and bustle of the parks and be able to relax by either sitting by the pool or being able to just sit and watch the tv we would not hesitate to recommend this villa to a friend or us to even visit ourselves again.

Cala Lily Cove was more than any humanbeing could ever ask for. It made us feel as though we were royalty. Every room was furnished and decorated with sheer elegance. It provided us with so much warmth and a since of peace,it's impossible to find any where else. Although it was our very first trip to Florida it made us feel right at home. The owners are real people with a loving heart { thanks Martin and Claire} and the property manager {Tina } checked on us long enough to see if everything was ok, but left us to our selves to enjoy our vacation. Thanks guys, and we will be back soon. You will never be able to enjoy a real vacation until you have vacationed at CALA LILY COVE!!!

We've been coming to Kissimmee for years now and have always stayed in excellent villas but this house exceeds them all. The photos do not do it justice. The location is beautiful and very peaceful, just what you need after a busy, tiring day at the theme parks! There is everything that you need at the house to keep you entertained whatever age you are. Thanks to all, from Lisa,Martin, Daniel and Kieran

This is truly a five star executive house, easily large enough for two families to share. The owners have equipped the house to an exceptionally high standard, with quality furnishings throughout. There was plenty for us all to enjoy, with TV/DVD's in all bedrooms (DVD's provided), table tennis and bar football in garage, massive TV in lounge, a PC and playstation in the study area, plus a superb heated swimming pool and jacuzzi. This was a holiday home that all the family were sad to leave.

The house was spacious and the setting was surprsingly very quiet and peaceful. The kids enjoyed having the ping pong and foosball tables, the big screen TV, as well as the pool! We had a nice relaxing family vacation and although we opted not to go to Disney, it was a very reasonable drive from the house. We have already recommend this rental to friend!

We just returned from our wonderful 2 weeks vacation in the villa, which was as nice as we had expected. The villa was spotless clean and had all the equipment to make yourself comfortable. Crescent Lakes is a very nice community compared to others. Ok, the parks and restaurants are not around the corner but instead you can enjoy the tranquiiity and nature and that was what we came for. The pool/patio was our favourite place, where we spent most of our time. The views to the lake are gorgeous and there are lots of birds, fish and turtles in and around the lake. We never got tired watching. Self-Catering was great, especially our barbecues. We highly recommand this villa as a perfect home away from home.
Our stay in Florida has been wonderful. We've had some magical moments espec. Discovery Cove. Some days were very tiring so coming back to such a beautiful house helped us to relax straight away. Thank you for helping to make our trip more memorable.
