We all said wow when we entered Jill's villa for the first time - it really is that special.
It is very large with the biggest pool we have ever had in a villa.
We loved the open kitchen/living area with room for us all to chill out together. The kitchen had absolutely everything you could ever need.
There are 5 bedrooms with the two smaller ones each having a wardrobe full of fancy dress costumes for children - our older children were gutted we hadn't come here years before so they could have made use of them
The pool area is large with plenty of pool furniture, a great hot tub and lovely outlook.
We loved too the cupboard full of games.
We thought it was a very good location - easy to get to Walmarts and Publix with a great pizza takeaway and Applebees in nearby Berry Town Centre. We found the drive to Disney easy as you can avoid most of the 192 by going along Funie Steed Road.
Jill was fantastic to deal with. I really cannot recommend this villa highly enough - well looked after in a lovely quiet location.
Absolutely loved our stay in Jill?s villa. It is located on legacy park just off us27, an area we had not stayed in before. Berry Town Center is nearby with a publix, IHOP, Applebee?s and some smaller eating places we had Chinese take out one night which was good and there is Walmart up the road at cagans crossing 5 mins away.
The villa is huge, with 5 bedrooms, 1 king with ensuite, 2 double and 2 twin and 2 further bathrooms. We were a party of 4 2 adults and 2 teens and the space was lovely.
The villa is really well equipped, families with small children would not need to take anything as there are even buggies in the games room. The 2 twin bedrooms were lovely, minions and princess decor with loads of dressing up outfits in the wardrobes.
Lovely clean estate, neighbours really friendly, gardens well maintained and pool cleaned and checked while we were there. We had a small issue whilst there and the management company were very prompt in fixing the problem.
Overall we had a fantastic stay, would happily stay again and recommend.
We stayed here in April this year and had a fabulous time. It was a no hassle booking and smooth communication with the Jill the villa owner.
The villa was just perfect - plenty of space for 7 of us and lovely and clean. Plenty of things like towels and kitchen utensils and the pool was big for a villa pool and heaps of outside furniture and sun loungers. Plenty of baby equipment as well. Great location in a lovely quiet neighbourhood. Really enjoyed our stay here and would love to come back one day.
Had a fantastic stay at this lovely villa, had everything i could have asked and more.
villa was very spacious with a fantastic pool and games room which the kids loved.
don't have one negative.
would happily book again on our next visit to orlando
This is a fabulous villa. The owners provide everything you could think of and it is furnished and maintained to a very high standard. The villa itself is huge as is the pool area. It is the first time we have stayed off the US27 and location wise it wasn't a problem. My only gripe is that it is booked up for our 2017 dates! Would love to return one day.
We went to Florida in September 2014 and hired Jill?s villa in the Esprit area of Davenport and really loved the villa. After being home for around 2 months we all realised that we all wanted to go back to Florida for a second time. We set ourselves 2 years for us to be able to save and sort things out.
So we were wondering where to stay. This option for us was easy, we all said straightaway that we wanted to go back to Jill?s villa in Esprit. We contacted Jill and asked her if we could hire her villa in Esprit giving the dates we wanted to go and asking for a price. Jill got back to us within a couple of hours but we were disappointed when Jill said that she was selling the villa so we couldn?t hire that one, however; she had bought a bigger villa and that this villa was available for the dates we had given but did explain that the villa was bigger and costs a little more per week. She gave us a price for the villa, and said if we wanted to hire the villa, just to let her know. Within 1 hour, we told Jill that we wanted to hire the villa and to book us in.
Well the holiday came around and we had looked at the photos of the villa in the run up to the holiday and couldn?t wait to get to the villa. Well we got to the villa, when we opened the front door we were gobsmacked with the size of the villa. The villa was huge and the photos don?t do the villa any justice.
The bedrooms were very spacious and had everything in them that you needed for when you were using it. There was 1 bedroom with a super kingsize bed and had an ensuite (which was of the size of my bedroom back home), 2 bedrooms with double beds. These rooms had plenty of towels in the cupboards for us to use. There were another 2 bedrooms with 2 x single beds in each of them and they were all done up for kids, one room was the princess room (or you could change the bedding for Cars theme). The other was all done up as a minion room.
The living room/dining room was massive. The sofa in the living room was the most comfortable sofa I?ve ever sat on. The tv was huge and had digital tv. If you have Netflix, your able to login and watch your Netflix over there. The living room had patio doors leading out to the pool area.
The kitchen had everything that you could think of in it. The fridge was huge and we could store loads in there (e.g.: 30 bottles of water, 2ltr pop, fruit, cans of pop) Dishwasher, and all there other utilities e.g.; oven, kettle, toaster, loads of glasses and plates and dishes to use. Underneath the island in the kitchen we found loads of Theme park refillable cups, you could take these to the parks and only pay the refillable price for the drinks and not have to buy a new cup for each park. Saving you loads of money. There were a load of take away menus for your to order food to be delivered to the villa. In the cupboards there were books to read and boardgames for you to play whilst your in the villa and some dvd?s to watch.
The Utility room had a washing machine and tumble dryer in there which come in really handy. An iron and hoover.
The games room is located in the garage and had loads of things for us to do e.g: pool table, dartboard, air hockey. It also had a clothes line in the garage which was really handy. Also in the garage was stuff for people with younger children could use. Baby ring for the pool, pushchairs, highchairs. There is also baby travel cots at the villa for younger babies.
The pool was massive and had a screening around the pool (which you can remove) to stop any children from going near the pool and falling in. We paid for pool heating, which was well worth it. The hot tub was amazing and boiling. There were loads of patio furniture to sit on around the pool if you wanted to relax in the sun. There were a few pool inflatables to play with in the pool.
The location of the villa was excellent for us, in a lovely quiet estate. We like the parks and all that comes with it, however we also like to be away from it all and have that sense of ?home? feeling with peace and quiet. It takes around 10 minutes to get to the Disney parks from the villa, so easy to get to. Its really close to the supermarkets and food outlets i.e.: Walmart, Target, Publix, Dominos, Subway, Petrol station, Chinese takeaway, Fish & Chip shop, McDonalds, KFC. Taco Bell just to name a few.
Hiring a villa yourself, without a travel agent, can be a daunting experience (it was for us on the first time we hired) before your book anything, everything runs through your mind, Is the villa going to be there when we turn up? Is the person your hiring this villa off a real person, your putting a lot of trust in this person after giving the money. However Jill is very easy to contact and will always answer any questions that you may have, even if you think its a silly question. She puts your mind a ease. I have recommended this villa to friends and i will be booking this villa for our Florida holiday in 2018, when we have settled on a date on going.
I hope this review gives an insight into what to expect from hiring this villa.
We have just returned from Viburnum Villa and were very impressed with the spaciousness and cleanliness of the villa. Jill has thought of everything to make your stay a true home from home with an abundance of crockery, cutlery, utensils and towels.
The best part was the extended pool deck which gets sun from morning till night. The pool area is not overlooked and is very quiet.
Communication with Jill was excellent and any queries were answered promptly. The Estates at Legacy Park is a lovely quiet area to stay in and we love that it is easy to get to theme parks and shops, especially using the short cut along Funie Steed Road.
We have visited Florida since 1990 and always stayed in a different villa each year. This has made me very fussy with a long wish list. Jill's villa ticked all my boxes and we have already re-booked Jill's villa for next year.
Stayed for 3 weeks in Jill's villa in May 2016, everything about it was amazing. When you walk in, it is even bigger than it looks in the pictures. Jill gave us loads of information in advance, and there is a really comprehensive folder with everything you could need to know at the villa too.
Jill was great answering any questions we had before our stay, the villa had a keypad entry which we chose a code for in advance, so really quick and easy getting in when we arrived. We went for our honeymoon and there was even a card from them when we arrived, as well as a Christmas card, really nice touches.
The villa is really well equipped (literally everything you need in the kitchen) with loads of spare towels, beach towels and bed linen. The pool was fantastic and got the sun all day. Everything was cleaned to a high standard
The estate is really nice and really well kept, there is a publix and restaurants just round the corner. We could be parking up at Magic Kingdom within 15 minutes of leaving the villa if traffic was not horrendous.
Hopefully we will be going to Orlando again in the future, and as long as it is available, I will definitely choose to stay at Jill's villa.
We spent 3weeks at Jill's villa. We knew the villa was big but walking in found it was massive, the kitchen and family room are so spacious. It has a cosy formal room too. There were only two of us but there would be plenty of room for full capacity. It had everything we needed. The pool area is also big with plenty of sun beds, chairs etc. Plenty of shade as well as lots of room in the sun. The way it is situated it feels quite private, lots of space outside if kids wanted to play. There is a clothes maid and washing line in the garage ideal if you don't always want to use the drier. Jill has been very good she answered all emails quickly with no fuss. Thanks again Jill. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and I recommend it to others.
Date of Stay: October 2015

A excellent villa not to be missed out on! This was a last minute booking due to the villa we had booked being sold and the new owners not honoring rentals. Straight from the offset (I posted a villa wanted ad on here), Jill was prompt and answered all my questions, and despite the fact that she was away on holiday herself she answered all my queries and confirmed my booking pretty much straight away (one of our queries was around getting another travel cot and Jill just sorted that out!)
The villa itself is amazing, so spacious and well laid out. Everything you need is provided - the kitchen is so well stocked, pots, pans, containers for food storage, all the little things that you wouldn't think were standard were provided.
The rooms were all of a great size (there were 10 of us staying 6 adults, 4 children) and it was more than suitable. Special mention to the minions room, which was loved by all the kids. All the rooms had cable tv provided, huge wardrobes and just generally very well laid out.
Pool area was a huge hit with all with plenty of pool toys for the kids and plenty of pool furniture to just sit and relax when not using the pool. And plenty of towels placed in cupboards around the villa. Easy to use washer and dryer (as well as a useful clothes hanger in the games room (my tip hang washed clothes in there that are not suitable for dryer, they dry so quickly).
Jill and the management company were fantastic.
All in all a fantastic experience, would not hesitate to book this villa again or recommend.
