Comments received from some of our guests:
“After our two week stay in Florida, with the last week being in Orlando, it was heartbreaking to have to leave such a beautiful and comfortable home.
We found it in immaculate condition and settled in immediately. We were there during tropical storm Alberto and experienced a couple of days where it would have been miserable to have been touring the parks, or worse yet stuck in an ordinary hotel. While the heavens opened up for several days,(much needed given the current drought) we were most comfortable with the billiard table, air hockey, play station, internet access, and the excellent entertainment centers. The selection of DVD's and books were nice touches that kept us from having to venture out into the rough weather.
There was plenty of room for all to have their privacy when needed. It was wonderful to have the pool and spa. We especially loved the changing colors of the water at night, once we figured out what that switch was for. There is a raccoon that believes it is on par with a dog. He is most brave on nights when the trash is to be put out. I don't think I have ever encountered one so brave as to want to sniff your shoes. A few of the trees in the development were blown down during the storm, but were up-righted and tied down within several days.
We probably cook more so than the average vacationer, so slightly better quality cooking utensils in the way of pots and pans would have been the only thing I could have desired. The ones available were adequate, but I'm spoiled on my 18/10 stainless. Everything else was in surplus supply, from towels, bedding, and spare blankets. No one had used the baby supplies in the master walk in yet. Some cork board might be installed behind the dart board, since there were some poor shooters prior to, as well as during our visit. There are some small holes in the drywall that will only increase in number as time progresses.
Martin, our time in your home was the best part of our stay. We anticipated this, and were not disappointed in the least. You have certainly earned a repeat customer as often as we are able.
From my family to yours, thank you for you personal concern. We enjoyed our experience immensely and look foreword to next year.”

"A first rate holiday in first class accommodation. We found Willow View drive to be an excellent location with easy access to visitor attractions. We enjoyed all of the Disney and Universal Parks. Having a multi day pass to Universal, we would recommend that you avoid the queues by visiting Islands of Adventure late at night. With teenagers the duelling dragons was popular, though you must not miss the Popeye raft ride and log flume for a real soaking. The drive across to Kennedy Space Centre was only 1 1/4 hours on a Sunday morning and it was worth it although the extra expense for the simulators at the Astronauts Hall of Fame was not worth it. If eating out we would recommend IHOP for pancakes whilst the kids enjoyed throwing peanut shells on the floor at Longhorns. If visiting Epcot go early as the Fast passes for the three big rides run out very quickly. Our Film Buff son enjoyed Terminator 2 at Universal (3 times!!) and did you know that it cost $24 mil for 12 minutes, the highest ever movie cost per minute ever for a film! For days out we enjoyed Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach as a break from the theme parks. Blizzard Beach has the more adventurous rides but typhoon Lagoon is the nicer park- do not miss riding the Crusher Gusher!. If you want Pizza be aware that it is 2 for 1 on Tuesdays at Domino’s by the Publix Supermarket. Many thanks again, an ideal location for all the theme parks. A wonderfully spacious house with all the mod cons. It had everything and to such a standard that I could actually live there. We had a superb 19 day holiday"

“’Thoroughly enjoyed our time in Willow View One. Great location, very spacious and with all the facilities you could wish for a relaxed stay in Florida. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to anyone wanting a comfortable base for a vacation in the Sunshine State with easy access to the Orlando based theme parks and shopping. Looking forward to next time!”

“Having spent 17 days in these beautiful surroundings, we are very sad to be leaving. the house and pool are fantastic and make a lovely base for a very busy holiday. Thank you for a wonderful holiday!”
Linda, Olivia and Adam April 2006
“Fantastic Holiday in a superb villa! We have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Lovely Villa, accommodated 11 with ease. We enjoyed all the festivities - please remember to use the alarm etc. Fantastic meal and evening out at Bahama Breeze on International Drive. Outback Steak house and Ponderosa excellent. Planet Hollywood and Hard Rock Cafe lived up to expectations. - must do’s! Avoid Portobello Italian Restaurant at downtown Disney, food disappointing. Supermarkets (Wallmart and Publix) excellent value (especially cosmetics). Publix at Champions Gate is perfect for big or little shop and very convenient, Walgeens is a first class pharmacy. When exiting I4 go through Champions gate as quickest way back to villa. Typhoon Lagoon as stated by previous guests brilliant went twiceČ!! All parks great but expect to queue! Enjoy your holiday! We certainly enjoyed ours and a significant part of that enjoyment was the Villa - superb!”
Kalinowski Families December 2006
“This Villa was massive, you have got a lot of room to sleep in. It got five good places to sleep. The pool was really enjoyable our family had so much fun round it. Its a nice size to play around in. The jacuzzi is really fun. We all had a great time in this holiday villa.” from Richard, Sarah, Michael, Hannah and Matthew.

“We wish to thank you for the use of your home. We were very pleased with everything you home had to offer. Our family vacation included visits to Sea World, Universal, Hollywood studios, Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Downtown Disney. After a long day it was a pleasure to come home. I know that if we plan to visit again we will request your home. The location was perfect and the access to the highways was simple. the pool was a pleasure all the children enjoyed it, as did the Adults. So thank you again for making our vacation more enjoyable.”

“Very nice house indeed, lovely pool. Beds just comfy. We found America to be a really friendly place, all the parks were really good, best was Universal. Disney good but better for younger kids. What great weather! Storms not long, but hot rain, how strange. This was our first time here and we had a wonderful and very busy 2 weeks, need another holiday to rest!!!!”

“Sincere appreciation for the use of your home, the home is spacious, warm, inviting and we sure had a wonderful time in here. The pool too is fantastic and it was something to look forward to after a long, hot, fulfilled day!! The location of the house is very central to all the fun places, we visited Universal Studio, Thyphoon park and Magic Kingdom (fantastic for kids under 6). Thanks a lot for facilitating the actualization of our dream vacation!! We will definitely be back. Thank you very much for the use of your home our families enjoyed staying here. This was one of our best holidays. Thanks”

We had an enjoyable vacation the home was perfect. The memories that were made here will always stay with me. My grandchildren love all the room here. Most of all they love Mickey Mouse! The weather was cool here 50-60 Deg F which we did not prepare for. While the pool was working the kids enjoyed it. One week is not enough to enjoy everything here, so the next time we come, we hope to stay for 2 weeks! It will be at this house.
Thank you again for sharing your lovely home with us. The decor is so at home feeling. God Bless You.

Thank you for the use of your wonderful house. Everything was just perfect! Location is excellent. Near Everything. Bush Gardens in our opinion was the best park. No Lines and a much more laid back park! Be careful you do not bring a large picnic they do not allow it unless small individual portions. thanks again.
The Maguires + Keney Families July Aug 2010
We had a fantastic vacation. The house was perfect for us. The kids loved playing in the pool and playing in the TV room when we were not busy in the parks. The Disney Fairies brought the kids treats while they were sleeping so they woke up excited for the day. We visited Downtown Disney, Magic Kingdom, Hollywood studios. Mickey’s not so scary Halloween Party was by far the best way to experience Magic Kingdom (with 4 young children) We also attended the Happily Ever after Character Meal and the Grand Floridian.
The house location was perfect. Thank you for sharing your home with us and for the late check out. It has made our last day of vacation much more enjoyable.
The Stabolitis Family, The Ballas Family, The Gianopoulos Family, Winston NC October 2010

Thanks so much for allowing us to use your lovely villa. Great location, 15 mins to Disney, 30 Mins to Universal and 10 mins on sneaky Lake Wilson Road to 192. Publix are used to us, we became regulas.
The villa is in a lovely area which feels very safe. We return home with great memories.
