The following are some of the comments our guests have left us:

lovely vacation. Loved this home. The owner was so helpful in letting my family rent this home for our mini family reunion and I couldn't ask for more there was so much space my younger cousins loved it especially the pool. I'm so grateful in finding this home. Alessandra M.
Florida Vacation. We just returned home from our 8 night Florida vacation at this beautiful villa. We are a family of 4 and traveled with another family of 4 and had more than enough room. The villa exceeded our expectations and the information and pictures on the internet were true to form. The villa was not only spacious and clean but provided everything that we needed for our stay. The location of the property was also good and we were able to drive to both Disney and Universal Studios in a reasonable amount of time. The owner Stephen was easy to work with and responded to our questions in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family and hope to return to it someday. Anonymous
Forest View Vllla. Our family had a great time staying in the villa. It was more than large enough for our family of 6 adults and 5 children. The house was well kept with up-to-date appliances, etc. The kids and adults loved the pool and hot tub. The pool area was very private and we did not see another person while at the back of the house. It was only a 20 minute drive to the theme parks. We hated to leave. If we get back down to Orlando with our family again, we will definitely see if this villa is available. Anonymous
This is my 3 rd trip to Disney using this site and 1st time with these owners- it's was absolutely perfect! Six of us stayed with more than enough room and all the amenities of home. The house was everything we had hoped for- kids loved the pool! Steve was awesome with all my crazy questions and always answered them Promptly. Would definitely stay here again! Thank you for an incredible week!!! Anonymous
Steve - we had a wonderful time in Florida. Your home is absolutely beautiful. We were amazed at how much space there is. The master bedroom is awesome (mine of course since I booked the trip). The rest of the house was very spacious as well. We enjoyed the game room and the pool/hot tub. I would never go to Florida and stay in a hotel again. Having your own house just makes it all so much easier. I will definitely pass on your villa information to others. Thanks again. Anonymous, Braintree, MA
Amazing house and vacation! Thank you Steve for such a wonderful stay! The house was well equipped and more than big enough for our party of 9. The kids loved the pool and we loved that it was so close to everything in Orlando! Great visit and we will be sure to contact you when we return to Florida! Thanks Again. Anonymous, Harbor Springs MI
Hi Steve- Wow, our trip is over. We had such a great time. The weather was very nice and both of our families have so many good memories. Thanks for renting your home to us. We enjoyed staying at your home. And hope to stay there again, sometime in the future. Thanks for the opportunity to stay in such a nice home. Thanks! Joanne Korejko Anonymous, Hatboro PA
Theme Park vacation. We had a party of 6 adults and a 12 and 14 yr. old. The house was perfect. The game room and pool were a big hit. There is plenty of room. The house is very clean and comfortable. Steve is a great owner and very quick to answer any questions. The house is in a quiet neighborhood close to grocery and gas stations. It is an easy drive to Disney and Universal and the airport. We will definitely come back the next time we go to Orlando area. Anonymous, Indianapolis, IN
Dream Vacation because of a Dream Home. Hi Steve - just wanted to let you know how fabulous our recent family vacation to Orlando was and how your home absolutely made our stay "PERFECT." The house was more beautiful (if possible) than the pictures show and the pool was over-the-top for our boys(aged 8 & 9).Upon arrival, the boys (along with us) thought we were in a dream; and your home made the dream come true. Coming from a farm in a small northern Alberta community, we felt right at home as the neighbourhood was so quiet and the pool overlooking the conservatory was so private. We could not wait to return in the evenings to relax and enjoy the heated pool, spa and quiteness. This was our first experience with a VRBO and we are thrilled with the outcome. Not knowing much about this process, I based my opinion solely on the reviews sent by past renters. I was not disappointed in my choice! For this reason alone I wanted to send my own review as fast as I could. Steve, you were extremely quick to get back to me with availability as this was a last minute planned vacation. Your home made our holiday so relaxing and perfect and for that we sincerely want to thank-you. We are already planning our next holiday and it will definately be with you. We will be recommending your home to all our friends and family and if you are looking for a home to stay at during your vacation, look no further and give Steve a shout. You truly will not be disappointed. Sincerely, Chris & Holly Drader (Tangent, Alberta, Canada) Anonymous, Tangent, Alberta, Canada
What an absolute dream vacation home!!! Not only was this house beautiful, but it was spotless as well. With 7 adults and 2 kids we all had more than enough room to spread out and do our own thing. It was so much better than being stuck in a small hotel room. Our first choice was to stay at one of the suites at a Disney World Resort. However, after finding out that one night was going to cost us almost the same as one whole week in a 5 bedroom house, with our own pool and game room, it was a no brainer. Besides that, with a fully equipped kitchen we were able to save money on not having to eat every meal out. Our vacation could not have been better. If we ever get another big group together we would without a doubt book this house again!! Anonymous, West Milford, NJ
Super. Exactly as advertised. We had a great time. Eleven of us aged 3.5 - 65. Location could not be better for getting to Disney, everything in Orlando, and both coasts of Florida. Anthony S.
Great home, especially for a mixed age group. The teenagers loved the games room and our 11 year old loved the pool. Very clean, nicely decorated, upscale home. Pplenty of room for everyone to relax together or separately. Good location - not far from attractions, but not in the middle of the traffic and noise. Barbara G, Columbia SC
Wonderful house perfect for families with kids. We loved the house. Well taken care off, spacious and perfectly located to visit the parks. We stayed in the house with 3 families for 2 weeks and had sufficient space. Multiple places for the kids and adults to hangout including loads off tv's. Brand new big washer and dryer to make you stay even easier. The only "negative" thing was that the beds sqeecked. The mattresses where fine. No problem sleeping just made noise. The kids loved the pool and we loved the outdoor space and BBQ. Would recommend to everyone. The home really met and even exceeded our expectations. We would book again. Barbara V.
This house was large enough for our two families of 5. The little ones could go to bed while the older kids could still be hanging out together. The kids loved the game room and pool. It is close to the interstate to get to all the parks but in a quiet neighborhood. Thank you Stephen for sharing your home and good communication! Becki B.
Impressive and comfortable This house was perfect for our needs. It was well maintained and clean. We had 2 family's in our group and had plenty room. I would rebook this place again. becky s.
Wonderful property! We loved staying at Forest View Villa!! Very spacious and inviting, and close to everything Disney!! The pool and game room were fabulous additions for the kids, while the kitchen, dining/family room were a great hangout for adults. Brandy M, Myrtle Beach, SC
Great house, Great Location, Fantastic Owner that is easy to work with!!! I rented this house specifically to take the entire family along. Having a bedroom with full bath on the first floor was great for my elderly mother so she didn't have to tackle stairs. There was more room in this house than we could use, 5 bed, 4.5 bath, 3 living rooms, a large eat-in kitchen as well as an additional table area in the front room, and a game room. The pool was AWESOME!! House was clean and bug free. The house has some wear specifically the blinds are old and broken in some cases, pots and pans need to be replaced and the air hockey table needs some TLC, however, these are minor updates that need to be done compared to how much we enjoyed the house overall. The owner was responsive and easy to work with and I would gladly rent the house again for a future vacation. Thank you for letting us borrow your house, our vacation was GREAT!!! Brian B.
Great Holiday and great place to stay. We went with another family and there were 8 of us in total, it was nice to still have plenty space to relax after a hard day at the parks. The place is immaculatly clean which is a change from some of the villas we have stayed at in the past. Bruce_HAC47738, Bristol,England
Great Property. Our family (6 adults, 3 children ages 8, 5 and 20 months) had a great stay in your villa! The house is very spacious and we never felt crowded. The pool was a great hit with everyone. We could get to Disney and Sea World within minutes (10-20 minutes respectively). The neighborhood was quiet and well maintained. The house was clean and well kept. The Management Service was prompt and very helpful with any questions. We would definetely stay here again. Highly recommended. Captain Cocoa, Iowa
Relaxing and Spacious. We had a very relaxing time at the house. The kids spent endless hours in the pool. The kitchen was large and had all the appliances and dishes we needed. We had a couple of minor issues with the house, and the management company was right on top of things, and more than willing to come take care of things. Steve (owner) was very quick to respond to any questions I had before we arrived. There was lots of space for everyone. Three bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms was perfect for our group. I would not hesitate to rent here again with a large group. Carol M.
Great Holiday in a great location. We had a great time, loved the place, plenty of room for everyone. Excellent home with all the conveniences, very quiet and private neighborhood. Great location, close to all of the attraction parks, an hour's drive to either the Gulf coast or the Atlantic coast. Would definitely recommend a stay in your home. Thank you once again, Cathy Cathy Steinhauer, Alberta, Canada
Loved everything about it! So much space! We used it for a family reunion and will go back! We stayed at Forest View Villa as a central location for our recent family reunion. We had family from all over meet at the house. Any thoughts of being crowded were unnecessary as the house is so spacious! Everything was clean and beautifully decorated.There were several bedrooms with multiple beds so there was plenty of space for everyone. There are several living and family spaces so that we could all spread out and have our own space when needed. There is a bedroom downstairs which meant that grandma didn't have to stay upstairs. Pool was beautiful and clean. The screen that surrounded the pool area kept any bugs away so we could all relax. There is a green area behind the house so we never felt as though we were overlooked. There was a BBQ provided so we grilled a lot and spent a lot of time outside. In the converted garage there is a pool table and a jukebox so we all played games. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes and cooking utensils so we were able to cook and entertain the families. Several of the kids had birthdays so we through a birthday party for them and baked cakes. The Disney parks are nearby so that trips to the park were easy. We had a wonderful time and we will definitely be returning for future reunions! Connie C.
Fantastic vacation. Forest View Villa was the perfect location for our family reunion. With some of our family living in the UK and the rest in the U.S., a family reunion in a Florida villa was the perfect idea. We were thrilled with our choice! Spacious and bright, the decor is beautiful. Most nights there were 13 of us sleeping there but on one or two occasions there was 18 of us and we were not cramped at all. With 4 big bathrooms no one was queuing up. We had several children in our group both younger and teenagers. The game room was perfect for entertaining them. There is a games console, juke box with lots of different music to choose from as well as a pool table. The highlights for me were the pool and hot tub area. It provided hours of fun and there is a BBQ grill in the backyard so many evenings were spent grilling and swimming. There is a huge dining room table and open plan kitchen with lots of equipment to use. One evening we had a birthday party for a couple of the children and there was all the equipment we needed to bake cakes for the family. The villa is immaculate and the exterior is well looked after. There is a grocery store and pharmacy a few minutes away with everything you could want. The villa is handy for all the Disney parks and outlet mall. There are hundreds of restaurants a short drive away, yet the villa is located in a quiet suburban area and you feel like you could be in a hideaway retreat. There are no houses to the back of the property so you are not overlooked. There are lots of attractions in the local area. A visit to Boggy Creek Tours is a must! It is an airboat tour of the lake to go alligator spotting. My husband and I rented motorcycles one afternoon and rode to the coast at Daytona Beach. Something for everyone! Access to a car is necessary to get around. We would visit again and have recommended it to everyone we know interested in a Florida vacation. Better than a home away from home! Connie, UK
Apologies for the delay in sending this Email but I felt I just had to contact you again to thank you for the fantastic time we had at Forest View from 3-17/6/06,the Villa was all we had hoped for and more. It goes without saying that I will be recommending it to everyone I know who is going to Florida. Once again thanks for everything. Dave Morgan, Leicester Englan
Perfect stay, again! This is our second visit to this great home. It is perfect for multiple families. It has everything you would expect in a home and more. The pool is always the big hit! This time was no different. The home was clean, spacious and only 12 or so minutes to Disney. Just far enough to escape yet close so you are not inconvenienced. Denise G, Chicago, Illinois
Great House. My family and I recently stayed here and it's a fantastic house get a lot of bang for your buck with this one!!! The game room is great and the kids enjoyed the pool, and they also provide toys and gadgets to enjoy in the pool such as floaters and noodles!!!!! Also it's located in a very quiet neighborhood, and only about a 15-20 minute drive from Disney Dwight M.
Great property, excellent proximity to Disney. Spacious, well equipped, great pool, huge and I mean huge rooms. 15 mins from Magic Kingdom, very easy commute, reasonable proximity (5 mins drive) from supermarket, petrol, bank, eateries. Everything we needed from our stay. Owners are very accommodating and respond to emails and requests (no matter how small) in record time. Would use again if coming to this part of the world and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others, excellent value for money. Emma O.
The house exceeds ones expectations. One is always worried, will the place live up to expectations? are the pictures real? etc, etc. With you definitely everything is as described and we were delighted. Your home was WONDERFUL! We had a great time there. My mother in law and wife especially asked me to tell you THANK YOU very much for your house. It made a great trip even better. The swimming pool, the air hockey, the pool table, the kitchen, the bedrooms, all were great. They didn't want to leave the house at the end of the vacation. I may be in touch with you next year if we head again to disney world. Eric_HAC58175, Miami Florida
Perfect house! I would highly recommend this house for an orlando vacation. We went to Disney World and Universal Stuidos while we were in florida. Great proximately to both! THe owner was quick to respond with questions and house was just as promised! Plenty of room to relax in!! Erin J.
Great House. My Family and I spent Christmas and New Year at this property. The property was just as it was described, clean and well maintained, the layout was on the dime, The kitchen had all that we needed to cook our traditional Christmas Eve Dinner and New Year’s Day Meals, the swimming pool and the game room were great to spend time with my sons and daughter, the location was perfect for us, away from the crows but close to super-markets, shopping center and theme parks; Will definitely recommend this property to my friends and family; Looking forward to spend another 10 days at this property; Fidel C.
So amazing. Hi Steve, First of all, I want to say thank you for making our stay in Orlando so amazing, we were welcomed with a very clean, spacious and beautiful house. We enjoyed your house very much. We will definitely consider it for our next trip. We loved it!Thank you very much. Grace Q.
Steve - Our stay could not have been better. We were there to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday and having the comfort of home made it a wonderful birthday for her. We have already bragged to several friends about your place which we hope results in more bookings for you. Thanks again for allowing us to stay in your home and we hope to have a need for it again soon. Linda HAC126926, Aubudon, PA
Hi Steve, My family cannot say enough about your home. It is rare to find accomodations that actually look as good as the pictures show it to be....but in your case the house was everything shown..and more! Anyway, i just thought i would send off this email to let you know how happy we were that we could stay in such a beautiful house. I will be recommending your home to any families or groups that i know of that are travelling to orlando. Thanks again, Jeff Pastuck HAC136756
Hi Steve! Thank you for a fantastic holiday! Your villa was as gorgeous as it looks on the photgraphs. Much nicer than any other we had stayed in. There was more than enough room for 10 of us to relax each evening. The heated pool and jacuzzi were a luxury after the busy parks! We loved the ice 'on tap' in the kitchen! All of the bedrooms were lovely, the three en-suites were a necessity (not a luxury, as we first thought!) with three teenage girls!! The girls particularly liked the bunk beds! One bed to sleep in, one to throw all their clothes on!!! (Perhaps they didn't see the built-in wardrobe!) And the games room was a final meeting place each night before everyone went to bed! Florida was amazing, as always, but your villa made this holiday stand out from the rest! Thankyou again! You made it so easy for us with your detailed website and easy-to-follow instructions! Love Mandy HAC177000, Middlesbrough, England
A little piece of heaven!!!! Words can't express the enjoyment this home brought me, my children, and my parents, for our first Florida Vacation in 25 years!!! As far as location goes, it was perfect!!! Everything we wanted to see, or do, was in a 10 mike radius of the home. The kids LOVED the pool, the neighborhood was very peaceful, game room was a blast, and the house was huuuuuuge, lol. You could fit 2 families our size in there, and still have plenty of room. The home had a very warm, down-home feel to it, and the temperature was perfect as well. The best part of the whole experience, was dealing with the homeowner, Steve. He was professionalism personified. He answered or returned every phone call promptly, thoroughly answered all of our questions, and the best part, was we arrived 4 hours early after a 14 hour road-trip with my 2 young children, and he graciously let us go ahead and check in early, instead of having to ride around for 4 more hours, when we were clearly exhausted. He was first-rate all the way, and with all the scams, timeshare tricks, and Identity Theft going on, it was comforting to work with someone whom you fully trusted, and was going to leave you with a vacation you'll always remember. I definitely recommend this Villa, to any, and all families looking for the Vacation of a lifetime!!! Thanks again, Steve. J Rowsey
Great home, Great location, Great price. This home was the perfect place for a great vacation. We brought our whole family in for a week vacation at Disneyworld. This included 10 people, three of which were grandchildren ages 4,6,and 13. There was more than enough room, the right amount of bedrooms and separate bathrooms, and the loft area was perfect for early risers. The fact that it was only 6 miles from Disneyworld made it the perfect location and it was away from the hustle and bustle of Orlando area.There was a Publix close by which made it convenient for groceries. Also everybody loved the pool. The management team was very helpful and friendly when needed. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a great vacation. and would stay here again if in the area again. Jack R.
Everything was fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed our Orlando holiday and your Villa was a large part of that. The pool/hot tub was a hit with us all after a long day at the parks. We had decided on your Villa because it backed on green space and it did not disappoint, the Sandhill Cranes were at the back of the house some mornings and they were lovely to see. Your instructions for the Villa, with security code and lock box in larger font were well laid out. Thank you for sharing your Villa with us for the week! Jay G.
Perfect choice for our family. First trip to the Magic Kingdom for the Grandkids where we had a truly magical time, but came back to this wonderful house exhausted. Soaking the sore feet in the hot tub was a lifesaver, and of course the kids loved the pool. The adult kids, me included, would then be rejuvenated and enjoy the house, game room and pool all evening. It's so convenient to attractions but a nice quiet refuge after the busy days. Planning to rent again soon. Jean L, Cape Cod, Massachusetts
This property is absolutely amazing, well kept, and everything we had hoped it would be. The house had everything you could possibly need while on vacation and offered all the comforts of home. The house was so clean and neat. It was well organized and stocked. We had everything we could have possibly needed and so much more. The house is the perfect distance from all attractions and being kept back off the street provided for quite evenings. The kids absolutely loved the pool and the game room was a buge plus. This was the best home we could have hoped to have while away and we would gladly return. Jessica B.
Nicest Home on VRBO we have stayed In. “We have stayed in four other homes listed on VRBO and yours was the nicest one yet. It’s in a great location related to Disney and the neighborhood is very quiet. I would highly recommend this home to any family or large group visiting the Orlando area.” Jim I, Jackson, WI
Great vacation home. Lots of room for our families. Great kitchen and laundry facilities. We all loved the game room! Pool was very nice. We would come back! Jody W.
5 stars. We had a great time in Florida. This home was great. Our family enjoy the pool and the fact that it was close to Disney. We also went to the beaches which wasn't a bad drive. Overall we believe this home was excellent. joy k.
Vacation Haven!My family of eight enjoyed the comfortable, spacious, and clean accommodations during our week in Orlando. For me, the size of the house really added to the feeling of relaxation. As we all got ready in the mornings for our days of adventure, it was wonderful for the three couples in our group to have the convenience of three bedrooms that included en-suite bathrooms. My grandsons, who are six and ten, loved the bunk beds, pool, and air hockey. In addition, it was nice to see all of the child safety features in the house - covered electrical outlets, multiple locks on the sliding glass door leading to the pool, and a child pool fence. As others have said, the house is centrally located to the many Orlando attractions. We spent our first day of vacation enjoying the pool and hot tub. Throughout the week we spent two days at Universal, one day at LEGOLAND, Kennedy Space Center, and Cocoa Beach. For our beach day, we kayaked in morning with Fin Expeditions and saw at least ten manatees. We spent the afternoon at the beach located behind the large Ron Jon Surf Shop, enjoying the waves. There is a parking garage nearby that only charged $4.00 for parking. It was great that the villa has a large cooler and beach umbrella to use. Our favorite restaurant of the week was Deep Blue Seafood Grill located at the Wyndham Grand near Disney. It was our farewell dinner celebration. Only one regret - not being able to spend the last day of our vacation having fun at the house. It is a wonderful property! Thanks to the owner and property manager for your help and care. Judy, Pittsburgh
Excellent rental. Great home ,very spacious and beautiful had a great time wth the family. Very clean.i would recommend this rental. Justa R, Pennsauken
Enjoyed your home very much.!....The entire group was very pleased and in "awe" over your beautiful home. On my "to do" list was to send you a note and thank both you and your wife for use of your home. Half of our group was so happy that they elected not to even go out on our last two days. We will be booking again with you, Karen_HAC47328, USA
Very Large House that is very private, backs up to woods with a nice screened pool and deck area. Our four golfers had a very large house for our small group. One golfer had to sleep in one of the kiddie beds, but we made it work. Pool heat was not turned on when we arrived, mgmt. company fixed it the next day. Keith M.
Wonderful. Everything was wonderful. Big roomy house accomodated 13 people comfortably. I will stay there again next year in 2013. Stephen you are the best. Thanks for working with me to solve the payment issues with payment. Kingdom All-Stars, Atlanta
house was great plenty of room. was a wonderful stay. was not ready when we got there but was quickly set up. the caretaker was always there and he knew everything we had with us so we know he went thru all our stuff. other than that it was great. Krista B.
Exceeded all expectations. Being a single lady, I was a bit nervous taking my children all the way to Florida, but I'm so pleased I did! My family have had a wonderful Florida experience made all the better by your fantastic Villa, set in a beautiful location it's lovely and safe environment for the children, fabulous swimming pool, together with the games room loads and loads of space, immaculate and well equipped throughout with everything you could possibly wish for! Thank you so much for letting us use your wonderful wonderful Villa, the children and I can't stop talking about it and we can't wait to come back! thank you so much! Laraine, UK
Amazing! My family had the most amazing vacation and this, in part, was due to this beautiful home. We are a family of 7 with 5 teens. This home offered a good neighborhood, plenty of space, close proximity to the amusement parks, and is very clean. The game room and pool area were a big hit with my children. We spent one day just hanging out at the house enjoying all that was there. My children asked when we were coming back as we were pulling out of the driveway. The owner was wonderful as well. Very polite and answered any questions in a timely manner. I would recommend this rental home to anyone. Laura B.
Absolutely remarkable home! My family and I thoroughly enjoyed everything. The service from the owners was impeccable. On those rainy days, we had plenty of things to do in the house to entertain ourselves. Was great coming to the house being able to relax after being in the parks all day. My ten-year old never had a dull moment. Thank you so much for being so responsive to our needs and wants. We had a great time on vacation because of your kindness and professionalism throughout the whole process. We look forward to coming back again. Actually, we didn't want to leave. See you on our next vacation. lekesha, Alexandria, Va
We had a wonderful time over the New Year at Forest View Villa. The home was very spacious & well maintained. We traveled as a family with our children, Grandchildren & My Mother. (8 adults & 3 children)The Bedroom down was perfect for my Mom as she does not do stairs. My husband & I enjoyed the huge Master up & we all enjoyed the 4 bathrooms especially when getting ready to go to the parks. The kids loved the pool & gamesroom as did the bigger "kids". The management staff was very helpful too. In all a GREAT trip! My youngest daughter got engaged New Years Eve so we will always remember our stay at your lovely home. Lisa Cox, Memphis,TN
Happy New Year!! We had an absolutely wonderful time!!! The whole trip definately exceeded our expectations in all ways!!! Your house was great!! Spacious, wonderful pool, beautiful kitchen and great neighborhood. We loved to go for runs through the neighborhood!! Again, thank you so much, we all agreed it was our best New year ever. When I talk to people about vacations, I will definately reccommend your house!! Lisa D, Omaha NE
Wonderful Vacation. We had a wonderful time at your home. It is absolutely beautiful, just like the pictures and more. The kids loved the game room and the pool. We were especially happy with how clean the home was when we arrived. Thank you very much for allowing us to spend a week at your home. We will definitely return to your home next time we are in Orlando again. long, Seacane, PA
Wonderful house. Our family of 10 (6 adults and 4 children) loved the house. The kids especially loved the swimming pool. The house is nice and big so that everyone had a place to hang out. We were only 10-15 minutes from Disney and that worked out perfectly. Would highly recommend this house. Lori M.
Magical. We had an amazing time at this property. The property is located in a quiet neighborhood, just a few moments from Disney Parks, close to Walgreens and Publix. There was more than enough room for our family of 3 couples and a single person. Everything was exactly as pictured. The game room was a big hit with the guys . The pool was sparking clean and perfect for relaxing, I do recommend having the pool heated, the temp of the pool and hot tub was perfect ! Steve was awesome to work with and very prompt with replying to communications. LoveDisney, St. Louis, MO
disney,universal trip. Rental was all that was stated online . Convenient to all parks , grocery stores , restaurants , fuel and roads . The convenience of eyerything plus the amenities and the comfort of the condo aided in the recovery of long days enjoying the parks and to be able to repeat the next day . We enjoyed our stay tremendously . Lynn L.
This home we rented looked exactly as in the photos. Spacious, beautifully decorated,clean and fully applianced.the game room and pool were an asset when taking a break form the parks. The neiborhood was quiet, residential and approx 20 min from the Disney exit. Overall We loved the house except the beds*(mattresses ) were of low quality and 4 of us did not sleep well. Mattress toppers would definitely improve the quality w/o investing too much. Although just 5 of us stayed at the property, it would be ideal for 2 families. Marta M, family of 5 from Mass
Hi Steve, What a great week at your fabulous home! We all truly enjoyed all the amenties, especially the wonderful pool. Our week at Disney was so hot and the pool was great to come "home" to each day! The dining situation was perfect for our family as were the sleeping arrangements. We needed the three master bedrooms for the adults and this absolutely fit the bill. All the granddaughters were delighted to share the bunk bed room with their cousins! And what can I say about the game room! It was terrific!! Thanks again! Mary Beth B, Grayslake, Illinois
Steve - My family had a wonderful time at your home. It is absolutely beatiful and very convenient to all of the theme park attractions. My children loved the gameroom and the pool. We were especially happy with how clean the home was when we arrived. Great location and home with a very nice pool. In addition, the home is very nicely furnished. Thank you very much for allowing us to stay and we are looking forward to a return trip next year. Matt_HAC79349, Brentwood, TN
Ample room and space for the eleven of us. Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your home for our vacation. We really enjoyed our time there...and especially felt that there was ample room and space for the eleven of us! We were close to the parks and to shopping. We will definately recommend your home to our friends and family. Melanie, Windsor, CO
Very Nice Home. The house is fabulous. Extremely roomy and close to the amusement parks. It was very nice to have room to spread out and relax after a day at Disney. We will definitely rent the home again when getting the family together in Florida! Melinda W.
Nice Home and Location. This house is perfect if you have several people staying together. It's big enough so that everyone gets there own bathroom. Nice pool and very convenient location to all the sites. mlhjjm, United States
Great vacation house! My wife and I stayed here with some friends on the recommendation of a co-worker and were very pleased with the accommodations. The house is HUGE with plenty of room for everyone and our own private spaces beyond just the bedrooms. It was very convenient to get to both Johnson Space Center and Universal Studios, as well as having a bunch of shopping and dinner options only a couple miles away. Nice quiet neighborhood and a pool in the backyard make it perfect for relaxing at the end of a long day of sight seeing. Nels, Chicago, IL
Hi Steve, I wanted to thank you for providing a great rental property, as I appreciate something kept in excellent condition and clean! We have rented several VRBO's and it is always a guessing game as to what you have "really rented" until you actually arrive. This property was indeed what you advertised and the layout worked perfectly for our 5 grandchildren and 6 adults. There was penty of room for everyone and the 1/2 bath in the pool area was a wonderful bonus, especially with young children. The game room was a big hit with the older kids, if they didn't want to swim this provided additional entertainment for all. Your communication was excellent and answered in an expedient manner with any questions I had. We highly recommend this property to anyone staying in the area, especially if Disney World is on your itinerary as it is only a 10 minute drive. We won't hesitate to recommend this great property and hope to return in a couple of years. Kind Regards! Norma Grieb, Kennett Square, PA
Excellent vacation. Thank you for your wonderful house! We had a great time in Disney parks and enjoyed our accommodations. Everything was as expected and advertised. The house was large to comfortably accommodate 6 children of different ages from 4 to 14 and three adults. Pool with spa and game rooms help entertain the kids. It is located in a very nice neighborhood, close to Disney parks (about 20 minutes on average drive, depending to the park you are going to), close to Publix supermarket (about 2 miles away) and some restaurants. Dealing with the owners was easy and pleasant. Thank you! Olga X.
excellent. We had an excellent time here. Steve was very flexible and responsive to all our needs. 100% recommended..we will definitely be booking here again. phil, wisconsin
A great home for our 3 families. We took 6 adults and 6 children ages 2 - 9 for our Florida trip to Legoland and Disney World. We enjoyed our stay at the Forest View Villa and found it a good location for both destinations. The pool was so convenient and used every day we were not at one of the parks. The half bath at the pool side was a blessing! This home was well prepared for 12 people with plenty of bathroom towels which was appreciated. There was plenty of room for everyone without being on top of each other. When the stove had a problem with burners the maintenance company was quick to respond and take care of the problem. Forest View Villa was very convenient to a grocery store which provided much healthier options than eating out everyday. Many great memories were made and this home added a nice touch to those memories. Richard M.
Disney vacation. Our stay in this home wa very nice. There were 5 adults and 2 children. Everyone had plenty of room in the house and no one felt like they needed to go somewhere for some space. The house was clean and was more than what I was expecting. The privacy of the back pool area is a big deal when you realize that most houses in the area are 10 feet from the next house. The furniture was nice and the kitchen was great. Plenty of room to prepare and serve meals to our group.there are plenty of televisions throughout the house so everyone could watch what they wanted when they wanted. Being about 15 minutes from Disney made it a great way to spend the mornings at the parks and come back to rest and get some lunch and return to the park in the afternoon. A great option for the kids to help them enjoy their experience. In short, we were all pleased with the house. I was pleased with the level of service from the owner. The grounds keeping service was very responsive. richard p.
above expectations. Good morning Stephen. My family and I are very pleased with the accommodations we experienced at your forest view villa we stayed at during our recent trip to Orlando Florida . The home was laided out perfectly for our large family. From the moment we arrived we were very impressed with the room amenities and the cleanness of the home. Our enjoyment also revolved around the pool and spa area. We are happy to let you know that our future trips to the area will result in us booking your second home away from home a second time and will also recommend your property to my colleagues upon their visits to the happiest place on earth. Kindest regards, RV and family Glen Allen VA. Ronald V.
Outstanding House. Thank you for the wonderful stay in Flordia. Your house was outstanding, the kids totally enjoyed the pool. We loved all the room and that you could come home to piece and quiet at the end of a busy day. Thank you Russ and Cindy Sibbald Russ and Cindy Sibbald, Canada
Very relaxing!!!!! We my family and six grandchildren loved the pool and hot tub we had great family fun with my son-in-law taking turns throwing them in the water. This Disney vacation and sea world was filled with so many memories my daughter got the disney photo package we have so many pics of both my daughters children. Our last day 7-23-16 I got so many hugs and thank-yous from my family it made my dream come true to see so many happy faces at the parks. It was magical from my 14yr old - 3yr old granbabies to see the magic in there eyes, sandra s.
Fantastic. The pictures shown do not do this house any justice. Owners are very quick with responses to any questions/concerns. There are detailed labels/instructions through the house of what things are and how things operate. House is extremely spacious in a quiet neighborhood. Location is about 15 mins to Disney and within 30 mins to Universal Studios ( traffic pending of course) There is a 1st floor bedroom with a full bath, that worked out for our group who had a person with a prostetic leg. The 8 of us that vacationed are a group of first responders that were looking for peace and quiet. We found it. The pool/spa is perfect we opted for the heat due to time of year and it felt like bath water. We loved it so much we already booked next years vacation and have been home for 5 days! shannon w, philadelphia,pa
Our family had a wonderful vacation in Orlando and wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your hospitality. With a group of 12 we worried that we would be on top of each other but that was hardly the case! Your villa is not only gorgeous but spacious as well. The kids really enjoyed the game room and we all had a fabulous time in the pool! We truly had a memorable vacation and should we plan a return trip to Orlando, we will definitely book with you again. Thanks again! Shannon_HAC99205, Illinois
Disney Trip. We enjoyed staying at this property. It was very convieniently located to Disney World. The home had plenty of space for our family of 8! Steve, Lake Charles, LA
Just emailing you to say thank you. The Family had a wonderful time in Florida. The house was very comfortable, felt like home. We all enjoyed the game room, pool, and hot tub. Had 10 people in the house and still had plenty of room. Would recommend the house to anyone looking for a home. The Children all had a great time in Disney,Seaworld,and Universal.Have a great year. Take care Sue Banks Sue Banks, Illinois
What a great place to stay! I took my grown children and grandchildren for a Disney Vacation. The location was great and the house was perfect. After a long day at Disney, it was wonderful to be at the home and enjoy the pool! There was plenty of room for all of us! Susan M.
Outstanding villa, perfect in every way. This is the best villa we have ever rented. It is really huge, and beautifully furnished. Fantastic pool table and juke box. Very clean and bug free. Stephen the owner is great and answered all my emails quickly. Highly recommended. Thank you! suzanne a.
We have returned relaxed and refreshed from our Florida holiday. Your home was absolutely lovely and the children enjoyed the pool and spa immensely. In fact, on many days they wanted to leave the amusement parks to return to the pool for a swim! Your home easily accomadated our party of 6 adults and 5 children, and the layout provided area's to get away for some quite time when needed. Great location, close to all parks. Tanya Angus, Ottawa, ON
We were delighted with our whole experience with Forest View Villa. Steve was terrific to deal with as was the Vacation Away staff. The home is decorated with top notch furniture and decor (better than home) and cleanliness was A+. Our kids enjoyed their first Disney trip and we're sure that Forest View helped make it a very memorable family vaction. The pool and game room were awesome and the trip as a whole was fantastic!!!!!!!!!! Teresa M., Wendell, N.C.
We had a WONDERFUL vacation in Orlando – a first-rate affair, w/ superb-quality family time. Your home turned out to be as-advertised & more. Delighted w/ the accommodations, and am just sorry it went so fast. Glad I found your villa on the web; your web-site is top-notch – a great job of advertising on your part! Will not hesitate to recommend your home to our friends & family – a bargain for what we had at our disposal. Thanx once again for everything, and if we ever do another Disney vacation, will be sure to look you up! Cheers,Tim Tim Austin, N Y
We had an excellent holiday. Your villa is absolutely beautiful. My grandson keeps saying can we go back to the ladies house. He celebrated his 3rd birthday there, had lunch with pooh bear etc at Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom he loved every minute of the holiday especially your pool. As you know he had a bone marrow transplant when he was only 6 months old. We use to tell him that, when he was well enough we would all go to see the real Pooh Bear in Disneyland. The dream of this holiday kept us all going through the poorly times with him. Thank you once again for helping make our dream come true. from Tina and all the family Tina_HAC47261, Coventry, UK
Great house, great communication with owner. The house is HUGE! We had our extended family (8 adults, 4 kids) there for a Disneyworld trip. Couldn't have been more perfect. Wow, what an improvement over hotels... Being in a big house really made the family-time fun. We swam, BBQ'd, ate b-fast together - all things that wouldn't have happened as cohesively as at a resort (and for a fraction of the cost!). Todd Millikan, Santa Cruz, CA
We just returned from a wonderful weekend at your home in Orlando. It was wonderful to have so much space! Our teenagers enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and game room so much that they opted to stay at the house instead of going to Disney or Universal! It was so nice to be in a quiet neighborhood, instead of cramed into a few small hotel rooms. Thanks again for sharing your home with us. Vickie Green, Bristol, VA
