Second stay at Arkvilla Holiday Date: 30 September to 14th October 2013 Review Submitted: 18th October 2013 This was our 2nd visit to Arkvilla this is a beautiful villa a real home from home & more Sandra is so nice & nothing is to much bother for her. Not sure when we will get back to Florida but when we do it will be back to this beautiful villa went with my sister,brother in law, 2 nephews & our 78 year old mum came with us for the 1st time. Mum was stunned at how beautiful Arkvilla is the photos of the villa are good but it looks even better when you actually see. Maggie and Charlie Blair, Scotland "The Hollands Stay at Arkvilla" Holiday Date: 14th to 28th June 2013 Review Submitted: 3rd July 2013 One word sums up Arkvilla - WOW! From the moment we booked with Sandra Mandalia in February 2012, to the moment we flew out to Orlando on 14th June 2013, Sandra was nothing but informative and helpful. Her tips and recommendations for places to visit including attractions and restaurants, not to mention ease of directions from Airport to Villa/Villa to Disney parks was fantastic! Arkvilla itself was amazing! The pictures online were stunning, but to open the villa door for the first time and see just how big the place is was breathtaking. The pictures really do not do the villa justice. To wake up every morning and have breakfast on the patio whilst the kids played in the pool was so relaxing. I would highly recommend anyone travelling to Orlando to book Sandras villa. It is so important to have the luxury of being able to chill out away from the parks, crowds and heat and to be able to do that at such a stunning location is pure heaven. We really miss the home comforts of the villa. There is everything there you could possibly need. The stroller in particular was a godsend for our daughter - who even though she is 6 years old - is very small for her age and very slow!! So to be able to whizz her round the parks was great! We are already thinking about our next trip to Orlando and will 100% be booking Sandras villa for this. We have never stayed in such a gorgeous villa and the care and attention to detail that Sandra and her family have makes the excitement of the holiday even more so. Thank you SO much to the Mandalia family for a memorable and amazing first trip to Orlando and to anyone thinking of booking this villa, DO IT! You WONT regret it! Kelly, Ross, Neve and Amy Hollands :-) "Like Renting From a Friend!" Holiday Date: 17 to31 May 2013 Review Submitted: 17 June 2013 As a family that has never been bothered to post a review previously, we can honestly say both the house and the way that we have been treated by Sandra has mean that we cannot let this holiday go by without making the effort to post a review. We hope this will go some way to thank Sandra for the wonderful way that we have been treated. The whole experience of booking, thru pre holiday information and instruction thru to some little help and contact whilst we were away can only be described as like renting from a friend rather than a stranger. A truly pleasurable experience. Thank You! The house contains everything you could wish for when you go away. From the wonderful furnishings and the spotless cleanliness that show that that Sandra and family really do wish you to have a home away from home rather than some bland anonymous box. By the way... the pictures do not do the house justice! The information pack in the house was – excellent – all the information you need from supermarkets to excellent recommendations for places to eat including the brillaint local Applebees 2 mins away. Just two small complaints... One, we only booked for two weeks [hardly Sandras fault :-) ]... and two... slightly bigger ‘complaint’... the house is so nice it will probably be booked up solidly for the next two years lol! Sue, Niamh and Ken xxxx Essex Amazing Stay At Arkvilla Holiday Date: 27 March to 17 April 2013 Review Submitted: 23 April 2013 We recently took the children to Disneyland Florida, and stayed at the arkvilla. It was the best trip we have ever had as a family, the villa was very spacious, clean, tidy, with all the comforts of home plus more. The villa is a four bedroom villa, with 2 double on suite bedrooms, and 2, 2 single bedrooms. There was plenty of storage space and we could not have wanted anything more. The villa is close to all the disney and universal parks, aswell as shops and supermarkets. The villa owner, Sandra and her family made our stay as problem free as possible and she was very helpful on the lead up to the holiday with any information we could possibly need from if there were coat hangers in the villa through to the best places to eat and shop, and days trips out. We could not have asked for any more and it was lovely to come home from long days out walking round parks and be able to cool off. When we next return to Florida we will definatly being staying in this wonderful villa, 5* Keith Williams, Grays, Essex Beautiful villa made our stay special! Holiday Date: 11th March 2013 Review Submitted: 20th March 2013 Arkvilla is beautifully furnished with a very homely feel. Within a few minutes of arriving we felt as though it was our own home. We enjoyed the heated pool after a long day at the parks and the games room was a hit with my grown up children. Its quiet gated location close to all amenities is an ideal base for your stay in Orlando. Sandra the owner of the villa is a delight to deal with and provided lots of information on places to eat and visit. I thoroughly recommend this villa, it is a 5 star property and you will not be disappointed. Ange C, Ellesmere Port Family Trip to Florida Holiday Date: November 2012 Review Submitted: November 2012 Our family has just returned from Arkvilla and thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay in Florida. The property was immaculate and of a very high standard. All the facilities were available within the house to allow a lovely family holiday. I would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone visiting Florida and there was a lot of help given by the owner, regarding amenities and useful "hints" and "tips" on your stay. Moira and Les from Aberdeen - Scotland

Second Stay at Arkvilla Holiday Date: July 2012 Review Submitted: August 2012 We have had a wonderful time during our 2nd stay at Arkvilla! It was like coming back home again. Everything was perfect as usual - thanks for everything! Sharon, Steve, Zoe & Abby Dickson, Scotland

Holiday Date: May 2012 Review Submitted: June 2012 WE would like to thank Sandra for letting us use your home. Janis and I have been to Florida 5 times before and Arkvilla is by far the nicest place we have ever stayed. Thanks also for your advice and directions, they were perfect. We had a unique occassion on Sat May 19th when our local football team played in the Scottish Cup Final against their greatest rivals and we won 5-1. We will remember it for the rest of our lives. Greig & Vikki who came with us are already talking about coming back and we would recommend Arkvilla to everyone. Thanks again. James & Janis, Scotland

"Arkvilla....our home from home!!" Holiday Date: 15th December to 30th December 2011 Review Submitted: 3rd January 2012 We spent our first Christmas away from home from December 15th and chose to stay at Arkvilla and so glad we did. It was a fabulous Villa......more than we were ever expecting. The pictures are exactly how they appear on the website and the real" thing is even better! The master bedroom is huge and the bed was really comfortable. I cant speak for the single beds but there were no complaints from those sleeping in them. When we walked in it was immaculate. No shabby carpets, everything was clean and all the furniture was of a high standard. Sandra obviously takes pride in her rental home and from what we saw the people renting it previously have looked after it as well. There was even a bottle of wine waiting for us!! The little personal touches are what makes it so special. The location of the Villa was perfect for getting to Disney as it was so busy when we were there so we always used the back route that Sandra provided....nice touch. It was in such a quiet well kept area as well. Didnt even hear the bin men when they came round! Unfortunately we didnt make much use of the pool as we were out a lot and then too tired to get into our swimmies when we got back. However the children did make use of the games room which was also a nice touch. The only negative I would have would be that I dont like cooking on an electric hob......this however does not reflect on the Villa. It is just a personal choice. Throughout the booking and stay Sandra was great. Anything I asked she dealt with it promptly and nothing was ever too much trouble. This stay was the "holiday of a lifetime" which was contributed by the comfortable and relaxing surroundings that Arkvilla provided. I would highly recommend anyone considering not to hesitate but to go ahead and book. When we can get back to Orlando we will definately be requesting a booking again!! Thank you Sandra Tanya G and family

"I wouldnt waste time - just book Arkvilla!" Holiday Date: August 2011 Review Submitted: September 2011 Normally when doing reviews for things theres usually something you can mention which could be improved upon - but I have to say on this occasion Im struggling! Sandra will make the booking process a pleasure – and you can tell she wants you to have the most enjoyable time possible during your stay. The location I think is ideal: just a short run to all the main parks and attractions, but just far enough to get away from it all. The house itself is immaculate. Im sure therell be villas out there where the owners will do the bare minimum just to be able to get customers in, but at Arkvilla the opposite is true: its like a showhome, and you can tell theres been a great deal of thought and attention put into every detail. The pictures are good, but the reality is even better. As a family of four, we had so much space it was unbelievable - no cramming the contents of your suitcases into inadequate closets: there were walk-in wardrobes with wall-to-wall clothes racks. The multiple bathrooms were a godsend, and for those who are fussy about cleanliness, I can only say the place was spotless. The villa seems to have everything you could need, and although we ate out almost every night, the fully-equipped kitchen would keep any chef happy. Needless to say the swimming pool was the feature most popular with the children, but it was closely followed by the Games room, and here again you can see the thought and ideas that have gone into the home - it had not just a pool table and a dartboard, but a full-size air-hockey table as well! Getting a good place to stay is a key part of any holiday, and of course the temptation is to spend a lot of time on choosing the right one. But anyone staying in the Orlando area couldnt go wrong with this property, and I am so delighted we stayed here: it became not just a base for our daily excursions, but somewhere we couldnt wait to relax in at night. It really did help make our holiday in Florida one well treasure. Donohue family, Liverpool, UK

Donohue family, Liverpool, UK "Dream Holiday made special at Arkvilla!" Holiday Date: 16th July to 6th August 2011 Review Submitted: 8th August 2011 We stayed at the immaculate Arkvilla for 3 weeks in July/August 2011. Our holiday had been in the planning for a long time and was made all the more special staying at this beautiful villa. Spotlessly clean, modern and stylish we felt at home as soon as we walked through the door. The rooms were all large in size and comfortable making it a perfect place to relax after a busy day in the parks. Our family made lots of use of the brilliant games room, and of course the well maintained pool was favourite with everyone with plenty of chairs and loungers to use. There are baby facilities: 2 buggys, and a highchair, travelcot to use if you have small children, all clean and as good as new. Also a safe in the villa to keep passports etc which was excellent and easy to use. The villa is located near to all of the main Disney parks with a brilliant little shortcut (thanks Sandra!) to take you right next to Animal Kingdom. We fell in love with Florida, and the villa - a perfectly located home from home. We didnt want to leave! The guidance & advice given from the villa owners was excellent, it made our holiday even more special by staying here, highly recommended. Viki, Mark & Family, Rise Park, Essex, UK

Our First Florida Holiday Holiday Date: 30th March to 13th April 2011 Review Submitted: 18 April 2011 We have just returned from 2 weeks staying in the beautiful "Arkvilla". Sandra, the owner has been so helpful and was able to answer all our questions as First Timers to Florida and made us feel very welcome with a note, bottle of wine (most appreciated!) and Autograph books for our 3 boys! The villa has everything you need to make your stay go smoothly. Our boys loved the pool and I enjoyed catching the sun and having a magarita by the pool after doing the parks. The older boys and DH also made use of the games room, playing pool and on the Playstation, whilst having a break. There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby and the travelling to Disney was easy. The villa is part of a gated community which was reassuring. We will hopefully be back and my son tells me that no other villa could be better, so Sandra I will be in touch when I have saved my pennies! Pauline & Steve, Fife, Scotland A Wonderful Time at Arkvilla Holiday Date: March 2011 Review Submitted: March 2011 We could not have wished for more and hope to return again. May God richly bless you and your family, until we meet again David & Betty Broyles, Kent Island, Maryland, USA Really lovely,Very clean,Perfect place to stay!!! Holiday Date: Christmas 2010 & New Year Review Submitted: January 16, 2011 We stayed at "arkvilla" for Christmas and New Year just gone (2010) and had a fantastic time. From the moment I was looking on websites for houses to rent Sandra was excellent. Calling me to answer any questions I may have. Sandra also helped with things like nice restaurants and great places to visit , which was brilliant. When we arrived at the villa is was immaculatley clean, the ammenities in the villa were brilliant and it had a very friendly feel. Everything you could possiblly want is there. We cooked our Christmas Dinner in the Villa and had no problems. Everything has been thought of from games, Dvds and kitchen items to highchair and pushchair for babies. There was even a changing mat. The games room is perfect if you have children, our two boys (6 and 8 loved the games table)The villa is ideally located with a supermarket, mcdonalds, indian, chinese and restaurants just round the corner ( 2 min drive). We had a great stay in the villa and we would definatley recommend Arkvilla to anyone and would love to go back again. Stop searching and book Arkvilla Holiday Date: September 2010 Review Submitted: October 8, 2010 I enjoyed a weeks stay at Arkvilla for 1 week with my family in September 2010 - from the moment I booked Arkvilla, the owner, Sandra made me realise I had booked the best villa in Orlando. This theme contniued upon our arrival when we were prresented with a bottle of wine and a welcome card. The house is spotless and the facailites are excellent. The decoration is beautifully done and allows you to relax from the second the door opens After enjoyable, but rushed days at Disney the pool proved to be a great area to relax in. If you book you will be more than happy with your selec tion and you wont want to leave - well done Sandra ! JP Berriff & family, North Yorks, UK Arkvilla Holiday Date: 19th - 27th July 2010 Review Submitted: August 2010 We had a wonderful 9 nights staying at Arkvilla in July 2010 and are full of praise for the villa and its owner, Sandra. Sandra is a pleasure to deal with. Her communication with us before, during and after our stay was excellent and all the directions, information and tips she provided us prior to our stay were very useful. On a previous trip to Florida we had a bad experience where a villa owner disappeared with our money, so we were very apprehensive about booking a private villa again. However Sandra went out of her way to reassure us and arranged for us to talk with her management company and previous guests to put our minds at rest before booking. The villa itself is beautiful. It is very well furnished, spacious and very comfortable. We loved staying there. It felt just like home and was the perfect antidote to our long busy theme park days. There was also plenty to do at the villa for our lazy rest days. We all thoroughly enjoyed the swimming pool, and the playstation, air hockey and pool table were an added bonus. The gated community felt very secure and we often saw security guards patrolling the area. The villa is located only minutes drive away from Berry town centre where we stocked up at the excellent Publix supermarket, enjoyed takeaway meals from Mia Pizza and dining at Applebees restaurant. We would not hesitate to recommend Arkvilla to anyone and would hope that we could visit again in the future. Sharon & Steve Dickson, Scotland

Our Christmas in ArkvillaHoliday Date: 21st Dec - 1st January Review Submitted: 6 January 2010Ark Villa was everything I wanted for our family Christmas in Florida. When searching homes I sent many enquiries but Sandra was the only one to respond almost immediately by telephone. I could tell from our first conversation that I had found a gem. The Villa is immaculate, well furnished, very spacious and comfortable. Because the kitchen is so well equipped I was able to prepare a complete Christmas dinner with no difficulty. The pool was great and my 7-year-old granddaughter just loved it. Sandra is a very pleasant host and makes you feel very welcome. We enjoyed the bottle of wine Sandra left as a welcome gift, poolside in the sun with the temperature in the 20s thinking about the rest of our family back in Ottawa with temperatures hovering at ᆭ.I highly recommend Ark Villa for your holiday visit to Orlando. It was awesome.Joyce & Jim Clyne, Ottawa, Canada

New Year Stay at ArkvillaHoliday Date: January 2010 Review Submitted: February 2010We have just returned back from a fantastic two week stay at ARK VILLA and are so pleased we opted to rent this villa. The villa is of very high standard and is extremely well maintained and very clean throughout. We were amazed with the wonderful décor and the amount of furnishing in the villa as it made the stay so warm and welcoming! The home was well prepared for our arrival and there was a welcome folder with relevant information to help us out and contact details of grocery stores/ restaurants/theme parks etc. The villa is in an ideal location as you are able to get to the attractions easily and there are grocery stores a few minutes away. We booked the villa directly through the owners and found them to be professional, friendly and very helpful in providing accurate information and were always willing to go out of the way to make sure our stay would be comfortable. When we arrived at the villa, a representative from the management company came to see us the next day and again, we found the person to be very helpful, warm and informative. is perfect for families as there is an incredible amount of space, two reception areas for relaxing, well equipped games area, excellent facilities such as laundry, full kitchen and all the comforts of home. This was our first family vacation with a young child and we really appreciated the excellent facilities provided (high chair, cot bed, clean bedding, buggy, car seat)- these were all clean, safe to use and well maintained. We also, felt reassured about the safety of the villa as the neighbourhood is gated and there is extra safety fence around the pool for children. We will certainly be using ARK VILLA again and strongly will be recommending this to friends and family members.Nita & Hit, Ilford, Essex

Holiday Date: 14ᆩ March 2010 Review Submitted: 21st March 2010Another visit to the ARK Villa and again we leave without disappointment. This time we shared the villa with friends and still there was plenty of room for all to relax after long days at the parks. The kids enjoyed the games room and pool, the addition of the solar blanket enabled us to use the pool no matter the time or the outside temperature. The villa seems like our second home and we would recommend to all.Whether you are a small family or a couple of families, this place can accommodate and fulfill all your vacation needs. The whole vacation home experience for the past couple of years has been a pleasant experience and can be attributed to Sandra’s personal touches such as ensuring we received pertinent information about the home and surrounding area, a bottle of wine awaiting our arrival and a welcome phone call confirming all is well.Ever since our first stay, we have recommended ARK Villa to family and friends and will continue to do so without hesitation.Thanks Sandra for allowing us to stay in your beautiful homeTony, Jennifer, Brad, Josh & Katie, Kanata, Ontario

20th January 2009 My family and I have just returned from our second stay at the fabulous Arkvilla. Firstly, we would all like to say a very big thankyou for letting us share your stunning home. After a rather hectic and long journey we were soon living the dream! I really can't think of a better place to visit at Christmas and as we entered through the gated entrance it felt like we had returned home. We were greeted by a wreath hanging on the door and a beautifully decorated Chrismas tree. All of this, plus the lovely phone call from Sandra to check that everything was o.k, all adds to the individual care and attention you will receive. This is the reason why we have returned and why this villa is heads and shoulders above the rest. The decor, fixtures and fittings are of an extremely high standard, yet you don't feel like you shouldn't touch or use any of them. The villa layout is spacious and accessible, giving you the choice of quiet time or family time. The pool area is relaxing and our family made great use of this facility. There are ample sun loungers and chairs and a table where you can dine alfresco. The privacy screen around the pool is an added bonus, along with a chest full of pool toys. The games room with the pool table, air hockey and darts were a hit with all the family. There is an abundance of bedding and bath towels and having children, the washing machine and dryer are very welcome and very useful!!!! The kitchen is very well equiped, with everything you will ever need. The villa is situated on the US27 and is 15 minutes away from Disneyworld. Various shops, supermarkets and restaurants are all in very close proximity. We would not hesitate in recommending Arkvilla and look forward to spending many more happy family holidays there. It gets better every time we visit. Once again, many thanks Sandra Gary, Tracey, Amy & Ellie Bennett

"February 2009 - Wow! Words cannot express our appreciation for this lovely home. We have so enjoyed our time at Arkvilla. Thank you for your personal attention to every detail and your sincere interest in ensuring that our stay was enjoyable. Our time at Arkvilla has been beyond our expectations and we look forward to coming again! With heartfelt thanks, James, Vana and Cathy (Canada)"

Review Submitted: April 20, 2009 Date of Stay: March 2009 We have just spent 7 days at ARK Villa. The location is ideal for Disney and all the local attractions. We have previously owned a villa in Florida so we had very high expectations and ARK Villa lived up to them all! The location, the pool, the furnishings inside the house, the games room!!! The kids loved the Air Hockey table & Play station. We would visit again as we had an amazing holiday and the house was immaculate!! Thank you for all your assistance with the booking Sandra and also to the management company for looking after ARK Villa so well!

Private Owner From Romford, United Kingdom Member since May 2009

We are Sandra & Jai Mandalia and we live in Romford, Essex. We have 3 children Arun, Ryan and Kyle, hence the name Arkvilla. Jai works in Human Resources and I work as a Vicar’s Assistant in a local Church. We chose to buy our home in Florida after visiting Florida a few times and loving the people who are very friendly and helpful, the food is great, it's so clean, there is so much to do and we believe it’s a wonderful place to holiday. Previous holidays we’d stayed in cramped hotel rooms, and we thought we would try a villa as surely it would be a better option... WOW – we were amazed by what a different holiday we had. There was so much space for everyone. It was great not having to keep to anyone else’s time schedule. Even after the children had gone to bed it was wonderful to sit by the pool and relax. All this and for the same price as a hotel We bought Arkvilla off plan in 2005, this allowed us to hand pick everything ourselves making it a real home from home. We are the only owners since it was built therefore we know our home better than anyone and can offer you as much help and advice as you need to plan the perfect trip. We are very proud of our home and do our best to make sure our guests have the holiday they have dreamed of. So, please do get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
