We love to sit by the pool at the end of a long happy enjoyable day have a quiet drink and listern to the sounds all around and discuss what a great day it has been and if the mood takes a dip in the pool wonderful relaxing and the icing on the cake x

Agree with most of the above.

We love the freedom that comes with a villa, eat what you like, when you like, dressed how you like!

We love the amount of extra room you get in a villa where you can just 'veg' out during the day/evening.

The pivacy you get with a villa is brilliant, especially if you select one that's not overlooked.

I don't think I could go back to Orlando and stay in an hotel again.

I'm going with a friend so there'll be just the 2 of us and we have rented a villa.

Love it!

Oooooo where will I start ...


... so much roooooom for so little cost (how did we ever contemplate that holiday when 5 of us shared a room at PORS ! ).

... everyone of the four members of our family having their own bathroom !

... no arguing about watching the TV... because we can all watch one each if necessary !

... to be able to cook poached egg on toast if you feel like it, and not to HAVE to go out to eat, when you are all so tired after the parks.

... not having to tidy up a little before you go out.

...having the TV on and not worring about waking the kids.

What I love is sitting by the pool early morning (jetlag) with a coffee made in the proper machine! Everyone else still asleep, silence, dew on the grass and still slightly chilly watching the steam rise from the pool. Thinking "what shall we do today". As everyone surfaces we can have breakfast at home, anything you fancy from our HUGE well stocked fridge, or pop out to GCorrall usually! Having a shower/bath in my HUGE en suite. The kids all have their own suites (can't be described as just rooms) Chill out days are great, especially with children. If they have had enough of their own private pool (little treasures ) they can go inside, play games watch 3 millio tv channels etc. If our toddler wants a nap, he can sleep in a bed rather than his hot sweaty buggy, whilst we sit by the pool (take monitor!) Gone are the days of trying to placate him around a crowded pool. Park days are equally good, as you come 'home' you can BBQ, or takeaway, we don't usually cook proper, but Publix do great DELI stuff (giant crab legs, salads cooked meats etc.) We often buffet by the pool, drinking wine, having a swim (not at the same time) I think this probably sums up why we like the villa experiance. Each to their own but it suits us. Have a wonderful time.

The villa was the kids 2nd favourite thing on holiday (the first was Discovery Cove). They loved the pool and never wanted to leave it. Sometimes we had to drag them out saying "but we're going to Disney World!" They would literally roll out of bed in the morning and swim before breakfast and then swim when we got home at night.

See I even called it home then!

My absolute favourite thing (though there are many) is to get up... I'm an early riser... and get a glass of orange or a coffee (or both!) and go out on the lanai. It's so quiet, it always smells good and it's usually quite refreshing temperature wise. In my PJ's of course. The pool heater will be humming away, might see the odd tiny lizard darting across thr mesh... I love that, I really do.
