We stayed for 2 weeks in the hottest weather we have ever had in Florida! Pool area is fab with lots of loungers and plenty of space to move about and relax. Pool was lovely and clean and warm even although it wasn't heated but it was mega hot anyway! The villa has everything you could possibly want with a large HD TV along with Netflix, cable TV, numerous games consoles, games, DVD's etc. Also an Amazon Alexa which I have now purchased for home! Wifi is mega fast and even better than at home so I was well impressed with that even though the cleaner had knocked off the switch and we had to call the management company but the guy was in the area and it was fixed within about half an hour from my call so that was excellent service. Kitchen has everything you need, including coffee maker, microwave, large fridge etc. Garage has a good sized pool table, table football and electronic darts board. The washing machine and dryer appeared to be pretty new as well. The bedrooms have ample room and the master has a large walk in cupboard and new walk in shower. All TV's including the bedrooms have cable TV. Living area is large enough with three sofas and there is also an additional sitting area beside the dining area with sofas and a computer and desk etc but to be honest they were never used. There is also a table and chairs in the actual kitchen area which we used when we weren't sitting outside at the pool eating and enjoying the view. The villa is also very well located for Universal etc and I found it far better than other places along the other end of the 192 and the 27 is just miles away and I wouldn't entertain staying there as the traffic along the 192 and on the I4 is horrendous. I changed my Sat Nav to avoid the I4 altogether and I found that worked much better for me. All in all the villa has everything you need and more so I would recommend it to anyone even although I'm not a huge fan of the villa name! Lol. Cheers. Dave
We stayed for almost 3 weeks at Lawrence's villa. The community is very quiet, and a great location with easy access to the 192 and Disney. The villa is fab - a lot bigger than it appears in the photos. The pool area is great - lots of space to spread out, and you're not overlooked at the back. The spa is a great addition and the covered lanai gives protection from the sun.
The kids loved the pool table, and also having Netflix in their bedrooms. Lots of dvds and books available in the villa, which gave more choice.
Thanks to Lawrence and family for the opportunity to rent their villa just returned from 2 weeks in this wonderful villa everything you can possibly need is supplied in the villa located on a quiet and peaceful community a joy to sit out by the pool and watch the local wildlife on and around the lake would definitely recommend to anyone looking to rent a villa close to all parks/shopping and restaurants
Just the 2 of us stayed here from may 26th 2017 till 10th June 2017 and have to say it was a lovely villa
We opted for pool heat which was perfect for us
If the villa was not booked for may 2018 we would have no hesitation going back
We would highly recommend this villa for anyone
Just a mile to the junction of the 192 with plenty of restaurants
If it's free book it
This was our first Florida Villa experience and wow!, we just loved it.
Such a great location, just off the 192 with it's shops and restaurants and a short, easy drive to Disney. Yet you really felt tucked away in a tranquil oasis which is just what we wanted after a busy day in the parks. It really was so peaceful and the pool area was fabulous with a lovely view over a small lake. Not overlooked at all which I would imagine is often not the case.
Lawrence was a pleasure to deal with, really helpful and efficient and the managing agent couldn't do enough for us, even delivering some online shopping we'd done in advance of our stay!
The villa is very spacious and comfortable with all the home comforts you could possibly need. Beds were really comfortable and the kitchen was very well equipped. I did wonder if we'd actually get the children away from the various games consoles and snooker table! When asked what her favourite part of the holiday was my daughter gives the villa and pool as her second most favourite thing!
Really couldn't fault anything, loved our stay and wouldn't hesitate to return and recommend.
This is our 5th villa in our 6th visit to Florida. We have stayed in newer villas, We have stayed in larger villas with more space, we have stayed in villas with a lake view and villas that back onto one another, We have stayed in villas with Spas/Hot Tubs and all have had their reedeming qualities. However this villa probably just shades it overall because of the pool area. The view and tranquility made us realise that Florida can be a relaxing holiday without the hussle and bussel of the Parks.
The bedrooms are by no means the largest but still enough room for the customary King Size beds nor are the bathrooms the biggest but they still provide what they need in terms of Baths and Showers,
I will echo previous comments and say that Lawrence has been most helpful in our dealings, very approachable and accommodating when we needed to engage. The MC were also helpful in attending to some very minor issues during our stay though they did forget our welcome grocery pack which Lawrence kindly managed to resolve for us (Many Thanks Lawrence)
The villa was in a clean and presentable condition with some very minor issues that do not need immediate attention and I know that there is a deep clean due shortly which will only enhance this aspect of the Villa.
There are enough games and consoles to keep the young (and old) amused should it be required. There is also the complimentary use of a Sat Nav which came in handy a few times
Chatham Park is quiet with no through traffic other than those staying on it. We found the noise from the neighbouring estate (it is seperated by the lake and hedging so you cannot even see it) generally very quiet. We prefer this end of the 192, though it was noticeable that it is in need of a Refurb in some areas by comparisson to the West side of the 192. I think this is being addressed with some improvements underway
We would most certainly consider a return trip to Killer Villa and if not Chatham Park then maybe Lake Berkley.
Just back on Sunday from this terrific home. Firstly, the owner Lawrence has been a pleasure to deal with, friendly and helpful, hitch free on all fronts, thanks.
The house was wonderfully clean and presented on our arrival, well equipped with everything available you could possibly need. Directions were spot on and we found the villa with no issue.
Only needed to call the management company once and that was due to me being a tube and not reading the folder regarding the air con. They were very friendly and helpful regardless of the late hour and it being a user error problem.
I think this is probably the best location of all the Villas we have stayed in over the years, very close to 192 and the plethora of excitement that offers. Also close to the Osceola Parkway which offers a 75c toll 10 minute journey to the gates of Disney.
On the whole this was the best home we have stayed at during our all villa holidays of the last 10 years. I will not hesitate to book again if available for our next trip and would thoroughly recommend it to others looking to book a villa close to Disney.
Thanks again to Lawrence and family for making their wonderful house available to us.
We are just back from a stay here in Feb 2012 & thoroughly enjoyed it!
The pool heating was great, verging on too hot some days as it was unusually warm for February. Our Daughters loved playing around in the water after a busy day in the Parks.
There are so many personal touches which make this a Villa a great place to stay. We took our young children who loved their Spongebob Squarpants bedroom & made use of the bedrail for our toddler. The Baby Monitor was fantastic peace of mind while she napped & we used the pool. Great to have a Safe & the Sat Nav to use. The Computer, Wifi & Telephone usage proved invaluable to us when our eldest Daughter was ill over there & we needed to sort out our Insurance & talk to family at home.
It was so lovely to have a washing machine & tumble drier so there was no dirty washing to bring home. First time ever I've not been up to my elbows in ironing for several days after we get home!
The owners were fab to deal with, all questions answered quickly & were super helpful.
We would heartily recommend this Villa & look forward to coming again!
Date of Stay: February 2012

We have just returned from spending 2 weeks in the villa and have to write to say how much we enjoyed it. The location was superb, so close the 192 yet so quiet and peaceful looking out on to the lake. The villa was very well equiped and Russ from the management company was so helpful. The pool was wonderful especially as the temperature was hotter than usual for this time of the year. The computer and telephone were very useful for contacting home and booking extra tickets. Having the laundry facilities was so useful and the endless supply of towels a godsend. Having spent a number of years saving for this trip of a lifetime, we felt that we had chosen well and it was worth every penny. We now have to start saving for our next trip.
Our family of 5 stayed here for 3 nights last June, the first time we'd stayed in a villa rather than hotels on a Florida holiday and it has made us villa converts! We had plenty of room, comfy bedrooms, great kitchen and a wonderful pool we spent a lot of time in mornings and evenings. The owners were great, helpful, friendly and financial transactions painless and straightforward.The washing/drying facilities meant for the first time we went home with 4 suitcases full of clean clothes - fab! I loved the location close to Disney, restaurants and Walmart and Target. The surrounding area was safe and peaceful - a change form our usual I-Drive experiences lol. I would recommend this villa to anyone and IF we do get back to Florida this year I will be checking availability here first.
We stayed in the villa last 2 weeks in February 2010, family of 4 - 2 adults + 1 toddler & 1 baby.
Location is superb, just minutes off the 192 in Kissimmee, its near Walmart + all the restaurants. Theme Parks are a short drive away.
The Villa is well equipped with everything you'd need to make the most of your stay, the washing facilities were a godsend for us having 2 young children! This was our first time in a Villa and we loved the freedom it gives.
The rear of the Villa looks out onto the peaceful lake, the pool is lovely although it was too cold this year to use even with the pool heating on. Its nice and secluded and you have nobody overlooking.
The owners are brilliant, couldn't ask for a nicer, more accomodating and generally incredibly helpful couple.
We've booked another one of their villas for 2011 but only because this one was fully booked.
We stayed in the villa over Xmas and New Year 2009 and would definitely recommend the villa. The villa is very well equipped and had everything we could possibly need.
The villa looks out on to a lake and is the perfect way to relax after a day at the parks.Is close to the parks and places to eat and we would definitely stay there again.
The management company and owners were great and nothing was to much trouble.
Booked this villa last year because Lake Berkeley was full, but have to say this was a fabulous villa. Good location, close to the 192 area that I love. Very comfortable, huge tv, excellent ammeneties, would recommend this villa, no hesitation.
Date of Stay: October 2009

We stayed in this lovely villa in May 2009. The villa is in a fantastic location, close to the big Walmart, and also some of our favourite restaurants on the 192.
The villa was nice and big and had everything you could wish for, and the pool area was lovely, very private and very quiet. The villa owners are extremely helpful lovely people, I would definitely recommend this villa.
