I have stayed in several rental properties in Uk, France and USA and Maria's home is the best property we have rented yet. With a party of 6 adults 1 teenager and 2 children, the property was ideal, spacious, clean and very well furnished. A games room for our teenager to get away to and his own room with TV. The bedrooms were fantastic, I am missing my dressing room and enormous bed. The home was well equipped and extremely clean and comfortable. Although we stayed during the coldest weather for 30 years, we were able to occupy ourselves without the benefit of being able to utilise the pool or outside area. It did look very inviting and when one of us did brace the freezing cold weather to dip a toe or 10 in, found the pool to be very good also. The villa was very well placed for the disney parks, very easy to get to, good restaurants nearby and good shopping. Maria has been fantastic before, and during our holiday. Since our return home her service has continued in assisting in locating and returning our daughter's lost camera. I couldn't recommend this villa enough. If I were to return to Florida I would not even look at any other options.

The villa is just as good as the pictures on the web-site. Loads of room so you can go in a big group but still have your own space. The pool area is great, loads of room to relax after a hard day. Its location is perfect away from the hustle and bustle yet it only takes 5 minutes to reach the Disney gates. Definately a great place to come home to after a day at the theme parks..

Hi Maria and Robert
Your home was absolutely superb.. Thank you for letting us use it. We had a fantastic holiday, visiting the Disney Parks, shopping, the weather was great and staying in your home was fantastic. The children loved the games room along with the pool. My son actually learnt to swim in your pool and as soon as we returned after a day out we all loved being able to swim in the pool or relax in the spa. The resort was fab too with lots of activities and facilities. They have recently installed an ATM machine in the Games room which was really handy and the staff in the convenience store were always helpful and so friendly. Maria your phone call before we left England and the advice that you gave me really put my mind at rest and was a lovely touch. So many thanks for that... We would definitely recommend both the resort and your lovely home..

Kindest Regards

Hello again

Just a quick note to say thank you. We arrived home safe and well, having had the most wonderful holiday. We have left you a note in your visitors book at the house, however not sure how often you get to read these, just wanted to send this email. Your home lived up to the description on the internet, and was clean, fully equipped, quiet, relaxing and beautiful!. The location was excellent, we enjoyed Disney – and all it has to offer, on your doorstep, along with Kennedy Space centre and the Florida and Millenium shopping malls – all in a fortnight!. It was a ‘busy’ holiday – fantastic!!!. We will more than happily recommend your property, as ideal to friends and family. Your help throughout has been appreciated.
Best wishes for the future, may return one day...

Thank you for the use of your lovely home. We were all very comfortable here and had lots of room to move about without crashing. We spent lots of time at Disney and shopping, the house is well placed for access to both. Thank you for a place to enjoy our special holiday. We are really going to miss breakfast by the pool.

Having just returned from a glorious 2 week holiday in your beautiful villa, we felt we wanted to express our thanks for making our holiday so special. On arrival at the villa we were immediately delighted with our choice, the pictures shown on the website are exactly as it really is,but even so we were still taken aback at how beautiful it is. We could not fault it in any way, it was so clean, it felt brand new! Your directions from the airport were precise, as was all the other information you kindly gave me, eg, journey times to the parks, mall, restaurants etc. Not only is the villa so well situated within the Kissimmee area, the location of the villa within the resort was just perfect in itself.We especially loved the unique idea you had of planting the shrubs all around the outside of the pool area, giving total privacy as we sipped our wine in the hot tub one evening... ok, every evening.. Hic! We simply couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place to stay.Shall definately recommend to friends and family. Cannot wait to return!! Many many thanks again to you, Maria and Rob.

Your home was absolutely fabulous. There is not one thing I would change about your home and we are recommending it to several others. Normally after a week of vacation we are ready to return home but because your home was so inviting and comfortable we were not ready to leave. You have done a beautiful job decorating it and it was much like being in our own home. The only issue we had was that we did not realize until we needed it that there were no extra trash bags or toilet paper but I would imagine if you keep that around some guest are likely to stock up and take it home with them. I hope it is OK but we left some extras we purchased. The pool was wonderful. We even had to bargain with our children to leave your pool to go to the Disney parks! How crazy is that? I think that we were much happier in your home than we would have ever been in the home that we had originally rented. I guess God knew what he was doing by directing us in your direction. Thank you for being so patient with us and working with us in the situation we were in. You were very kind and accommodating and that means a great deal. We will definitely be staying with you again and if for any reason someone wants to talk with a family who has stayed in your home, please feel free to give them our email or phone number. Thanks so much and we look forward to staying with you again soon!

You were absolutely on my "to do" list. We absolutely loved the house, location and community. Thank you for going to all of that trouble to make the house truly a home away from home for our family. We had a great trip and having such a lovely house to come back to each night was wonderful. I will forward your information on to anyone interested in renting a vacation home near Disney. Hope you had a Happy New Year. Best regards,

Dear Rob & Maria,
Here I am writing this note on the day we fly home, what can I say the villa is fantastic soood in fact, we spent time here that may have been better spent at some of the local restaurants but barbecuing by the pool or playing pool after a long day visiting Disney or whatever was just the job. I will definitely recommend this holiday to friends & family, many thanks.

Dearest Robert & Maria,
Thank you so much for thr use of your beautiful home, we were in total awe of this house, we had a wonderful vacation and were so happy to have had the opportunity to live it up in grand style. I feel as if we know you just by spending time here, when we get back to New Jersey I will call you to thank you personally. Hope we can meet up one day.

Dear Rob & Maria,
We had a great time staying in your beautiful home, my sister and her family thought it was great, also there was so much room, there was 8 of us and no one got in each others way. Thank you

Dear Maria and Robert,
I wanted to thank you for a wonderful holiday at your beautiful villa and also to provide you with specific feedback about the house and experience. Overall, our stay was fantastic. We think the playground area is the best we have EVER seen--our daughter enjoyed it EVERY day! The pool and hot tub made our trip what it was! We used the movie theatre only twice, but it was very memorable and unique (how neat to have a theatre all to yourself!!!) What was even nicer were the DVD's and books in the home(which we had forgotten to bring!) There were lots of small touches which made our trip really special. For example, the basic groceries you bought plus the welcome basket eliminated the need to grocery shop the first day we arrived. We were pleased with a lot of small amenities (garbage bags, toilet paper, tissue boxes, dish soap, etc.) and the fully equipped kitchen! Hampers and a laundry basket made life much easier. Anyway, I could go on and on, but we sincerely want to thank you for making the experience so fantastic. The small hitch we had with the internet, you dealt with it so beautifully--we are very confident we will return in the near future!
