Name: Sue, Gary, Mat & Melissa Edwards Country: UK Date: 7 Aug 2008 Comment: Had a great holiday, us girls have enjoyed beating the boys at trivial pursuit.

Name: Denise , Clive , Timothy , Chloé Green, Country: DERBY, ENGLAND Date: 4 Aug 2008 Comment: We stayed in the villa in July 2008 for 2 weeks. This was our 7th trip to Florida and by far the best accommodation we have stayed in. What really made it was the homely, inviting feeling. There was 8 of us, 2 families of 4 (including 4 teenages!). Having a computer was terrific, it enabled 'the teenages' to keep in touch with their loved ones. The location was superb. We were able to go to Clearwater beach as well as visit all the attractions such as Dinsey and Universal. We had some budding tennis players with us that made full use of the free courts almost every morning whilst others took advantages of the pool. The extensive range of games, books, dvds, pots and pans, pool toys, towels, to mention but a few, was great, like we say, home from home.

Name: Paula , Bob Alger Country: BASILDON, ESSEX, UK Date: 5 Jan 2008 Comment: I stayed in this villa over two weeks in December 2007 It was my first trip to Florida. My husband and I are not into Theme Parks but took this holiday with other members of our family who definitley are!This villa was perfectly situated for all of us. Sadly neither of us play Golf as the course looked spectacular and was so handy! We were a large party but as the villa sleeps up to 10 and has several bathrooms we never felt cramped and no-one seemed to be waiting for the shower in the morning! The villa was furnished nicely not like some holiday lets where things are cheap and cheerful. A lot of thought had gone into the standard of fittings and equipment. Everything you could need was local to the villa which made for a very easy going holiday, one which I would love to repeat in the future. paula alger, basildon,essex,england
