Perth and Kinross, United Kingdom

Fantastic villa great pool, excellent location and can’t wait to go back.

November 2016

Spent 3 weeks here, loved it. Excellent location with superb access to the attractions, theme parks and supermarkets etc. The pool was fantastic, deep enough for adults, but shallow enough for kids too, and the jacuzzi was an added bonus. Villa was completely kitted out and there was plenty of room. Beds were comfortable and with 2 en-suite double rooms and 3 big rooms with twin beds, and a cot too if you needed it. We got lots of info from the owner who made themselves readily available to answer the vast array of questions I had. The house was part of a gated community so we always felt safe and secure. The proximity of the IHOP pancake restaurant was too good to resist. Despite going in October the weather was superb and was very hot almost everyday, with the added bonus that the theme park queues were negligible. We were very sad to leave and would return in an instant.

A perfect home for a Disney holiday

If you are a family visiting Disney then look no further than this property at Tuscan Hills. The 5 spacious bedrooms allowed our 2 children a bedroom each, but even when they decided to share for the last 3 days of our 16 night stay the bedroom was more than big enough. The en suite downstairs bedroom allowed the children’s grandparents to join in with our holiday but also allowed them the privacy they value so much. Given the climate during our stay, the air conditioning was absolutely priceless and the kids couldn’t wait to jump in the pool after a tiring day at the parks. With easy access to an enormous Walmart and any number of restaurants, the home has everything you could possibly need. This includes owners who were more than happy to assist with any queries, and offer advice on potential trips and excursions. My only criticism was that we had to leave at the end of our holiday. We will be back!!

2nd Time Visit to this Excellent Villa in a Great Location

This is the second time we have stayed at this villa and we are already trying to work out when we can go back. Arranging the stay with the owners is so easy and stress less with replies to email queries being answered within 24 hours. If you are considering a villa over a hotel this property is perfect. It has all the amenities you will require, the pool is great the games room and toys are excellent and it is 5 mins away from a super walmart that has everything you could ever need for a stay in Orlando. While we didn’t really make use of it the property has a big TV in the lounge, lots of DVD’s as well as a couple of games consoles dotted around the rooms. Washer/Dryer, hair dryers, towels are all provided. Why do we book this villa and why would we book it again? (in no particular order) 1. The booking process is so easy 2. Great rates 3. Location to parks, shops, LEGOLAND, 192 where all the restaurants are 4. Big property with lots of space whether there is 4, 6 or 10 people staying 4. The gated community (Tuscan Hills) aspect Non villa specific points that I would recommend if you stay at this property include: 1. Make use of the Walmart that is 5 mins away and stock the villas big fridge / freezer with drinks and ice cream. 2. Try the Chinese takeaway at Berry Town Centre that is a 2 min drive (don’t order as much as you do at home !) 3. There is McDonalds for the kids about a 3 min drive from the house 4. Make sure you get a take out from Diromio’s which again is a 2 min drive Getting back to the villa, the points above are all part of the reason why we use this property and why we will use it again. Florida is hot and being at the parks all day and being able to come back to your own villa with its own pool while not being confined to a hotel room is such an advantage. We are looking forward to going back to Orlando and when we do this is the property we will use.

This is an amazing 5 bedroomed home with pool and spa, situated in a secure gated community. It is equipped with all household amenities a family could need, it has great décor with a homely feel, very clean and well maintained. It is within easy travelling distance to all the Orlando attractions, and is close to the shops and places to eat. This a great place to stay for all age groups, with a great games room and a wide range of toys and equipment for young children. The pool area and hot tub are great for relaxing and are well maintained. customer service during our stay was excellent The owners where very helpful, and willing to give lots of advice and information to help you make the most of your vacation. We highly recommend this villa,the whole family had a fantastic holiday and are looking forward to staying here again on their next visit.

A Home from Home in Sunny Florida

Aug 2013

Just home from our second trip to Orlando staying at Garry & Ann’s lovely villa – Closest to the Magic and all I can say is “when can we go back for a third stay?!” As soon as you step through the door you instantly feel at home, with a spacious living area, well equipped kitchen and large bedrooms. Not to mention the wonderful pool/spa/deck area – a real treat at the end of a long tiring day at the theme parks! The home is alarmed as well as being in a gated community, which adds a level of security to your stay. A safe is available for use too which comes in very handy for stashing away passports and the like. The views in the morning from the pool area are second to none – beautiful sunrises and hot air balloons in the distance. What a lovely way to start a day! With a Publix and a Walmart a short drive away, you can quickly make this villa feel like home after stocking up on provisions. A large fridge, an oven and microwave, as well as other small kitchen appliances allow you to have a meal or two at “home”. A choice to eat out by the pool or at the large dining table. We feel this villa offers great value for money – it’s huge! And we would hesitate to recommend Garry and Ann’s Closest to the Magic villa to our friends and family (and you, reading this review!)

Total Relaxation Vacation

June 2012

My family and my in-laws stayed for 2 weeks at Garry & Ann’s fantastic home in Davenport. This was to be our holiday of a lifetime to celebrate my mother and father in laws 40th Wedding anniversary – which we planned to begin with a 7 day Caribbean Cruise and then 2 weeks in a villa. I know Garry from working together, so he really made the villa part of the plan really easy. And what a home!! Right from the moment we opened the door it was perfect for what we wanted – quiet area, close to all the major parks and eating places (and shopping malls for the ladies of the group!!), private pool and masses of space which you could only dream of back home. Although we didn’t require the Management Company as such, you were only a phone call away if you had any problems. Garry & Ann – thank you so much for making our holiday such a memorable experience by allowing us to live in your beautiful home for a fortnight. You deserve to be so proud of it!!.

Wonderful Stay at Tuscan Hills Villa

May 2012

We have just returned from a two week stay in Garry & Ann’s beautiful courtyard villa in Tuscan Hills. The villa was just as the pictures on their website, immaculate and very clean – bedrooms were beautiful and very comfortable – and the many extras such as safe, alarm, ps2 and games, wifi etc etc made our stay so enjoyable. As it was so hot in our 2 week stay we certainly made use of the private pool – with no rear neighbours and privacy to the sides we spent many a happy hour in the jacuzzi and pool. Tuscan Hills itself we found very peaceful, and great secure entrance too. We also found the ‘check in’ very easy too with the key placed in a locked keypad at the door ready for us to access. Good positioning on the Us27 for both the I4 and 192, with restaurants and shops very nearby. All in all a fabulous holiday. The owners are so helpful too and always answered any queries extremely promptly. Would definitely recommend and visit again.

Fantastic Holiday 

Dec 2011

We stayed the first two weeks of December 2012. Garry and ann’s villa is an excellent property, in a great location.The pictures are a true image of this villa and there are loads of restaurants and supermarkets near by. We were just a party of four so had plenty of room!!! The Pool and spa were fantastic and the pool heat allowed us to use this both in the mornings and evenings. Garry was great at answering any questions we had. We would recommend this villa to friends and family. Thanks again for letting us stay at your home.

Five Star Large Villa with great outdoor space & pool

Dec 2010

It was a pleasure to stay in such a lovely clean & spacious villa & also felt very secure on Tuscan Hills with it being a gated community & the villa having its own alarm system. It was also a pleasure to deal with Garry & Ann the owners & nothing was too much trouble & found them very efficient & friendly, as were their management company in florida.The villa is very well furnished with massive beds in the master suites & having your own heated pool is just a dream. Would certainly stay here again.

Second-time around…still perfect.

Dec 2010

We stayed earlier in the year and there was no doubt that this villa deserved a second visit. Still unbelievably clean, and I am a real stickler, so quiet and peaceful. Most mornings we spent in the pool/jacuzzi just chilling and then out and about,happy to return ‘home’ at the end of the day. This villa is highly recommended for specifications, cleanliness, space and location, it really does tick all the boxes. We had problems with the pool heat and when the owner got involved it was sorted very quickly.

Classy Villa, excellent location!

May 2010

We have stayed in many Florida villas but Camellia Villa is the classiest and cleanest we have ever rented in. So comfortable and peaceful, we loved it! The location is within a 10 minute drive of the main theme park action and yet far enough away to be relaxing and quiet. Didn’t need to deal with them management company so can’t comment on those, but communications with Garry were very friendly and very helpful. Couldn’t fault this villa, highly recommended.

Christmas 2009!

Dec 2009

Our experience with Garry and Ann can only be described as totally professional and top class. We had a few travel issues and Garry and Ann plus the management company were top class and nothing was any trouble.The villa was beautiful and had all you could ask for. The location is excellent with all quite close by. the kids really enjoyed the pool and loved their rooms. We had a great Christmas. Thank you very much.

Live like a Celebrity!

Nov 2009

How would you like a taste of the celebrity lifestyle…for just a short time? Villa Camellia will not disappoint! From the moment you enter the automatic gates into the complex you know you are in for something special. The villa is immaculately maintained with themed bedrooms, cable tv in every room, two en-suite bathrooms..it is 5 star luxury! But unlike a hotel, it has a very personal feel with little touches of luxury which makes you feel welcome. We found something new to revel in in every room. From the initial contact with Garry and Ann, we felt that everything was taken care of. Garry pays meticulous attention to detail in all aspects of renting this home. The website is a delight to peruse and extremely helpful in the planning of your holiday. Garry is a so pleasant to deal with and will help with any query you may have-however obscure. He is very knowledgeable about the area and can even suggest things to do. We were holidaying with our teenage daughter who has severe Autism and has not fared well on holiday in the past. Garr’s extensive photo gallery on the website enabled us to prepare her by printing photos of the interior and exterior of the villa and she had the best holiday in years! She settled in straight away- this is the best recommendation anyone can give..even she was captivated by the atmosphere of this spectacular home. We cannot thank Garry and Ann enough for allowing us to share in this jewel that they own. It really does feel like a privilege to have lived in it. Book now!! Spoil yourself!! You won’t be disappointed!!

Best Holiday Ever!!

Jun 2009

A fantastic house, in a great position too, close to all Disney Parks. The house was immaculate and lovely decorated, must say the beds were sooo comfy and big!! The pool, what can I say, brilliant and the jacuzzi. If anyone thinking of staying here do, it is first class. I just wish I could have brought the villa home!!!

An excellent holiday home with all your everyday requirements 

June 2009

The villa was absolutely beautiful and clean with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing stress free stay. Disney is a 15 minute drive away with local supermarkets a short drive down the road. The villa far exceeded our expectations. The rooms were well presented, large and spacious, extremely clean and comfortable. The luxury of being able to come back to the villa after a very hot day at the theme park was wonderful. The only problem i could possibly comment on is that it has spoilt us for choosing future holidays that would compare up to this standard. We will definately be contacting Garry and Ann again to use and wish them well with their villa venture.

Beautiful, ideally located villa.

Dec 2008

Having stopped in several villas in the area this was the best by a mile. The villa has everything a family would ever need. The “two floor” design is a fantastic idea and makes it feel very homely. The home is located perfectly being only a ten – fifteen minute drive from Disney and 25-30 from Universal. The location is perfect for all your needs with takeaways and a very large Walmart only a mile away. We did find it necessary to ring the management company on one occasion for a minor problem which was dealt with swiftly and without fuss. We even had a personal phone call from the owner in the UK. In a nutshell, we wouldn’t stay anywhere else in the Orlando area.
