"We have just returned from 2 weeks in this villa and 1 week Caribbean cruise celebrating my 40th birthday and what a trip its been. After QA long flight from Manchester we arrived at the villa and the check in was seamless, when we first walked in we couldn’t believe how much it just looked like it does on this pictures, even down to the main table being laid. I would say the only two pictures that don’t do the villa justice are the pool( its much bigger) and the master bedroom is more of a suite, it was great. There was everything in the house that we needed to make it feel like a real home from home. We settled in straight away and got on with what was really an amazing holiday. The only negative i would say is that the villa is about 20 miles out of Disney and with the traffic always being quite heavy in that direction it was a good 40mins - 1 hour to get to and from the parks, however this could be explained by the fact it was what the Americans called “spring break” so the place was busier than any other time.
I would recommend the pool heating as it was freezing cold without it however i am thinking maybe more towards the summer it would warm up naturally.
The villa is set in a relaxing residential area and we actually were thankful of this and preferred it to down town Disney as it was a place you could escape, put on the great cable TV and unwind after full on days in the parks. I think if we were in the middle of all the Disney parks it would have been too chaotic for us and we would feel like we needed another holiday to recover. I travelled with my husband and 6 year old son and he loved having a pool to himself.
Food wise there are a couple of supermarkets close by, I would say the Walmart is the cheaper of the two but in comparison to England the food is a lot more expensive out in Florida which we didn’t know before we went. It wouldn’t have stopped us going but is worth noting for people heading there in future so they don’t get a shock at the checkout.
If you want a great steak, in a proper American ale house that is cheap in price head to Millers which is only a short ride from the villa but is a great pit stop on the way home from the parks to save cooking any food.
Overall we loved this villa, the communication with both lynn and the management company (Jenny) was both speedy and and polite and II couldn’t of asked for any more, all queries were responded within minutes. I would recommend staying here to anyone, GREAT VILLA ! X"
