I was looking for a solo getaway and specifically looking for something that felt safe, close to gas and food, and most importantly, HAD A POOL JUST FOR ME. LOL
There was nothing I didn't like. As it turns out, the lot is perfect for privacy and seclusion despite being surrounded by homes and having roads nearby. The grounds were lovely and natural for Florida nature lovers. The pool was spotless and I greatly enjoyed the views from the water into the "forest" behind the house. Positively peaceful place for me. The décor inside was lovely as it has a rich feel with its colors and textures, yet many touches of Wimsey, like the pirate statue in the living room or the treasure maps on the walls and accents around the house, as well as the colorful spare bedrooms. The house, décor, and yard have many elements that we have in our own home, but this one has a pool. I felt like it was a home away from home (minus the home office and obligations).
From the moment I began corresponding with Robert, it was easy and fast. He seems to have thought of, or experienced, the various things he has so carefully thought to include in the home as well as in the booking process, making sure to send you all the information you might need, even the info you didn’t know that you needed. LOL I couldn't believe how organized everything was and how much attention to detail there was with nearly everything. Things I would normally have to think about, bring, or buy on trips were there for me. Aside from having just about everything needed in the kitchen and bath, I appreciated the additional things like having a multi-usb outlet in the bedroom, books for adults and children in every room, making sure there are plenty of towels for shower and pool, having fans available, and a cooling system in the game room, with laundry, as well as pool safety features. I especially love the stove top and electric tea kettles, as I am a tea drinker, but he did have a coffee maker and Keurig as well. There were even blenders. I usually schlep mine with me as I do protein smoothies. There is an app with information about the house as well as a local guidebook; a link is emailed to you. Brilliant. He makes sure there are directions for things in multiple places; even if you forget in a panic like I did with the alarm, he’ll remind you of the multiple resources he’s made available to you. I didn’t miss cable as the streaming was quite suitable for me. I would recommend this house for a solo getaway like I did, or with family, or a girls or guys trip would work as well. If I am back in that area, I will definitely stay again.
What to say? Tropical paradise hidden away but close to Disney/ You have to experience this home to really understand. It is in a built up area, but feels like you are alone in the forest. Lazing in the pool you mostly hear crickets and birds, though the occasional animal crashing around in the forest beyond surprised me. But that is to be expected I suppose. Quiet, clean, well equipped, even had beach supplies for us t take to Clearwater when we went for the day. Great time at Disney too. Micky says hi!
We loved, loved, loved EVERYTHING about this house. It was clean and well maintained. The furniture was comfy. It was a beautiful and private setting. It felt safe and secure. The pool and patio were an enjoyable and relaxing area. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need. We cooked several meals. We would highly recommend the house to anyone. We enjoyed it as a couple but it would be great for a family trip!! Plus it was a short drive to wherever we wanted to go!
We had a wonderful stay at the Breezy Oak property. Still can't get over how quiet and peaceful that neighborhood is. The house, grounds and pool area are well kept. We really liked the new shower in the master bathroom and those two really comfortable leather sofas that provided comfort after long days at Disney. We found the place conveniently located to everything (groceries, gas, pizza, pharmacy, and of course Disney). Couple things that stood out was the info provided by the owners to prepare us for the stay and the follow up when an issue with the clothes dryer was raised. It is obvious that Robert and his wife take great pride in this property and really have their guests comfort in mind. We would definitely stay here again and would have absolutely no issues whatsoever recommending it to friends and family.
We found our stay at Breezy Oak Villa to be thoroughly delightful. It provides a quiet oasis in the middle of the many attractions available in the Disney/Orlando area. The house is extremely clean and well maintained. The landscaping has a very tropical feel. The pool and backyard are quiet and private. It's a home we very much look forward to staying at again in the future.
