We just got back from our break at this wonderful villa, the best we have stayed at. The thoughtful owners have kitted it out so well with toys, books, ponchos, dvds and lots more. These little touches made such a huge difference to our stay and made it the most home from home holiday ever. The kids especially loved swimming at night with the funky colour changing pool lights. My husband told me not to review this villa and to keep it our secret, it's fabulous
Clean, well maintained, not overlooked, perfectly located for the parks and restaurants and has everything you could think of that you might need - from Tupperware to ponchos to strollers to refillable park cups. Beds were amazingly comfortable, loads of fresh, soft towels - wonderful big bath and shower in the master suite. Located in a quieter residential area - completely out of the way and yet 5 mins drive to the 192 with all the restaurants you can think of on your doorstep and 10 mins to Disney parks using the Sherbeth Road shortcut which was an absolute god-send.
Caroline and Nick were great - everything you want in villa owners - helpful, friendly, informative and always available if you need them.
I would not hesitate to come back to this villa again when we come back next time, thanks!
Wow what a lovely villa and a great place to stay. The villa is in a lovely quiet location, not overlooked and just minutes from the 192 with plenty of shops, restaurants, mini golf etc. Also it is really easy to get to Disney - about 7-10 mins door to door to the Animal Kingdom via the Sherberth Road.
The villa itself if maintained to a really high standard, well decorated with lots of Disney/Universal touches without it being in your face. The beds were very comfortable and plenty of storage space and bathrooms. The living space is large and airy and 4 adults and 2 children all had more than enough space. The pool and spa were also fabulous, like the rest of the villa immaculately maintained and we loved having our own pool.
The villa is really well equipped with everything you could possibly want and need with lots of thoughtful touches including rain ponchos, Disney cups, Disney costumes, plenty of towels including pool towels, sat nav etc.
The booking process was easy and Caroline and Nick were a pleasure to deal with. They answered all questions promptly, were really friendly and the information they supplied before we went was detailed and very helpful. They also returned our deposit before we had even arrived back home.#
We really enjoyed our stay here and would love to come back again next time we are in Orlando.
We have just returned from a 2 week stay at this villa. The villa is fantastic, everything you could possibly need for your stay, they really have thought of everything. The pool was great, nice private location, not overlooked as it has lovely fencing around the property which I found a definite bonus.
My son loved the 'Mickey room' and even enjoyed the princess dress up lol.
Great location, very close to the parks and even better once you find the short cut.
Easy booking process, great communication and fast return of security deposit after we left. They sent a fantastic welcome pack out prior to our stay that not only had villa information but information about the parks and surrounding areas.
We would not hesitate to book with Caroline and Nick again.
Thanks for the use of your lovely home.
Sadly we only stayed for a week but wish it had been longer. Caroline and Nicks home is lovely with absolutely everything you could possibly want for a safe home away from home vacation in Orlando. Even the laundry was fun with Carolines new musical washing machine :-)
The whole process from booking to leaving was so smooth. Both went out of their way to make us welcome and make the move from hotel to villa easy. The information pack was excellent and information at the villa covered every eventuality.
We thought the position is ideal for Disney, really is just minutes from the Sherburt Road shortcut to Animal Kingdom and from there to the rest of the Disney resort. Easy access to the I4 if you want to go further afield.
As others have said very close to a wide choice of eating places and shopping.
I would stay again in a heartbeat.
This was our second time staying at this beautiful Villa. The first time was in May last year. Everything was catered for and every question which I emailed to Caroline And Nick it was answered very quickly. this year was the key less entry with our own code it was so easy.
Caroline and Nick even provided things to help me with my stay. So nothing it too much trouble for them. Thank you for everything I will recommend this beautiful villa to everyone who is looking for a place which is both relaxing and Homely and everything going catered for
We stayed here in October this year for 2 weeks. From initially booking the villa the service was second to none. Caroline and Nick answered any questions we had quickly and made sure we were happy with every aspect before committing to booking. The booking process was faultless. Excellent communication and before we went we received a superb information pack containing every thing we needed to know, from directions to the villa through to contact details should we need any help during our stay.
On arrival the villa was spotless. Very clean and welcoming. It was easy to get in, exactly as described in the information book. The children loved it, heading straight for the Mickey Mouse bedroom before going to the games room. The pool was superb and the security fence and alarms brilliant, especially with younger children.
We had cause to contact the management company whilst there after our youngest somehow managed to lock there bedroom door. They were very very good. Answered straight away and resolved the problem within a minute.
The villa is very close to anything you would need, from the parks, to shops and restaurants. It is very spacious and has every thing you would need. Very homely. Even the smallest things like ponchos in the cupboard were extremely useful one day when it was raining. It had all cooking facilities should you want to cook at home rather than eat out. The computer and free calls home were extremely useful. There was even a sat nav we could use which was extremely useful and saved us having to rent one through the car hire company, it even had all the parks etc programmed in to it already which saved us a bit of time.
We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone and we are intending to return really soon. The owners, Caroline and Nick were really helpful and easily contactable. They were very understanding when we had trouble back home and had to use the phone a great deal, which really helped with our situation. For that we owe a big thank you.
So to sum up. A great villa, with a great management company and great owners. Close to every thing you may need. Would definitely recommend this to any one.
From the beginning of the booking to the coming home bit, the communication has been excellent. We were given a very comprehensive information pack before we went which contained excellent directions to the Villa.
The Villa itself is finished to a high standard with the added bonus of feeling like you are at home with the additional personal touches. Everything was readily available in the villa, from the good 'ole coffee maker (and a kettle!), DVD's, books games, the pool table and everything else in-between. Free calls and the Internet was an added bonus. Linen and towels, including pool towels were in abundance and the Villa was very clean and tidy on arrival.
It really did feel like a home rather than just somewhere to stay.
The pool area was very well furnished with loungers and the patio offered table and chairs. The pool and spa were clean and the pool lighting at night was very relaxing. The pool has a removable safety fence. The pool area and garden are very private. Interior wise it is a very spacious Villa, the bedrooms all had flat screen TV DVD combo's, and the lounge area was comfortable and inviting. A great place to relax in after a hard days walk around the theme parks. We only utilised the fridge and the coffee maker, but the kitchen was very well equipped if you preferred to eat in. Everything you could possibly need is here in this Villa.
The location is perfect, just a stones throw away from some lovely restaurants and perfectly placed for all of the theme parks. I'm pretty sure if I stretched my neck far enough I could see the Everest Ride at Animal Kingdom from the drive, or very nearly. All local amenities were under at least 10 mins from the Villa, Publix, Walgreens, Outback Steak House, Longhorns and of course Buffalo Wild Wings.
The management company we readily available and helpful. They contacted us straight away when we left a message regarding a smoke detector, this was at 10pm on arrival back to the Villa. By 10.05pm they had called us back.
To sum the Villa up, great location, finished to a high standard, loved, and relaxing. Can beat it for a home from home! Thank you to Caroline and Nick.
Rent this villa!
Fantastic location, so near Disney getting to rope drop was painless. Near heaps of restaurants, from cracker barrel to olive garden. Family friendly with excellent facilities. Lovely pool with heating and safety fence, very clean. Villa itself was clean and welcoming. Free satnav and calls to home. Plenty space inside. Management company readily accessible and friendly. Excellent communication with owners.
Hard to beat!
Wow and wow again, this is the best villa we have ever stayed in. The amenities within the villa were first class, well stocked games room, computer and printer, free long distance calls, free satnav. Combine all this with cleanliness, heated jacuzzi, helpful management and superb service from the owners and you have the perfect combination. Don't want to stay anywhere else now as this will be so hard to beat or even match. Keep up the good work Caroline and Nick.
We stayed here for 3 weeks this summer, when we attended the Star Wars weekends.
My son's instantly found their beuatifully themed Mickey Mouse Bedroom. The house was fully furnished with everything imaginable. Beautifully decorated and spaceous.
The house was the closest we have every stayed at disney. They owners are so helpful, nothing is too much trouble.
In 2008 we stayed at this villa for our first ever Florida holiday. There were four adults and one child and the villa was perfect! Immaculately clean and very comfortable. We had more than enough room for all of us and plenty of space when we wanted to get away from each other - as families do. Not only was the villa perfect - the location was too. Just ten minutes drive to Animal Kingdom and only a few minutes more to the other parks. We particularly liked the fact that the pool/garden was private.
More than just the great villa - the service we received from the owners was amazing. As it was our first visit to Florida we had little idea of what to expect... but a few weeks before our holiday a package arrived from the owners containing so much information - about the villa, postcards, magnets, together with lots and lots of leaflets and maps of all of the attractions!
The owners of the villa were also very quick to respond to any queries we had before we went - being first timers we inundated them with questions but all emails were replied to very quickly and full of information.
On our second visit to Florida we stayed in another villa - we wished we hadn't! Back to Brownfields villa in the future.
