Our group of 9 (5 adults, 4 kids) stayed in this villa during spring break - Mar 2017. We stayed 7 nights. This was our first experience ever renting a villa and we will definitely rent a villa again should we do another family vacation.
The owners, Clyve and Yvonne are great to work with. They responded to questions about the rental in a timely manner and provided plenty of information. Yvonne is very good about easing any anxiety a person may have when doing this for the first time.
As for the villa! It was amazing!! With 9 people, I was worried about us being on top of each other, but I worried for nothing. With the adults each having their own bedroom and 2 en suite bathrooms, the kids in separate bedrooms, we all had enough space to be comfortable. The common areas: living room, dining room and kitchen, are spacious and adequate to accommodate a lot of people at the same time. The furniture was modern, well cared for and elegant. The master bedroom with a king-sized bed was comfortable - we slept well every night. The kitchen was fully stocked with cooking equipment including a Keurig!
We paid for pool heat and was glad we did as a cold front came through Florida and the temps dipped into the low 40's at night. But with a heated pool and spa, the cool evening air didn't bother us.
Yvonne provided a short cut to the Disney parks that saved us a ton of time! The villa is conventiently located within a 15 min drive (if you use the shortcut) of the Disney parks and about 35-40 minutes from Universal. Still it was close enough that after a long day at the parks, we didn't dread a long drive home.
We are extremely pleased that we decided to rent a villa, and especially that we chose the Heron Villa - Orange Tree.
Our second visit is every bit as good as our first. Lovely home and exceptional service! Yvonne takes great pride in everything she does.
This is an amazing villa. A family of 10 of us stayed for 2 weeks and had a fantastic time. The villa has everything you need and is a perfect distance from all the parks. With 6 kids in tow it was great to be able to relax when we got home from a long day - and this villa really makes you feel at home. Yvonne was great and always replied to my messages and requests promptly. Thank you Yvonne - we'll be back!
Villa was very clean, modern, spacious and comfortable with all the need appliances, accessories, etc--- TV's everywhere! Air-conditioning worked great in the 90+ degree weather. Patio and pool area area were also in great shape. The availability of printer and WI-FI was very helpful (e.g. boarding passes). The villa was a 20-25 minute drive to the various Disney parks depending on the traffic and the specific park visited. The short-cut Yvonne provided helped, although traffic was not a real problem in the off-season. Shopping and non-disney restaurants were also relatively close. We were a party of 8 with 2 tweens, 5 adults, and one elderly. Only comment on the layout--- the all-on-one-floor was nice for Great-Grandma, but she would have appreciated one bathroom equipped with shower or tub rails for ease in bathing. The dealings with Yvonne were first rate with lots of good communication and a very helpful information package. Only comment --- the refund of the villa deposit was a bit complicated, with me having to set up and validate a PayPal account to receive the refund transfer. I think a mailed check or simply a credit to the Credit Card I used for my payments would be appropriate. All in all however it was a positive experience and a good value for the money. Thanks Yvonne!
