Absolutely amazing villa
Absolutely amazing Villa.
Left on Jul 27, 2019 for a stay in Jul 2019
We stayed at the Evans Drive Villa for 2 weeks at the beginning of July 2019. From the moment we arrived until the day we left it felt like our home. The Villa is very spacious, bright and clean. We were a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 children aged 10 &16, so each had our own bedroom with lots of space. The swimming pool was a great size and a huge Shamu water toy had been left for the kids. The spa was lovely to sit and relax in. The living area was used well in the evenings to chill out and relax after hectic days at Disney. The fans in all the bedrooms helped as to keep cool at night as the temperatures were very hot. I would 100% recommend this Villa and if we ever return to Florida I will be checking availability. The villa had a home from home feel and I was sad to leave. I really miss sitting in the beautiful gardens in the morning enjoying a coffee while everyone slept.

I highly recommend this beautiful villa, it truly felt like home from home. Its situated it a lovely quiet neighbourhood but is also close enough to all the main attractions. The communication with Sara was brilliant. Will definitely be booking with Sara again.

Perfect location to visit all of the parks but away from the chaos. House is clean and amazingly decorated. The kitchen is equipped with everything that you would need. Use of the pool and all of the outdoor toys added a personal family touch. Thank you, we will be back soon
Perfect Villa wonderful garden and pool
Perfect villa with wonderful garden and pool area.
Left on Feb 21, 2019 for a stay in Jan 2019
We stayed in this villa for 3 weeks. The villa itself is of a high standard with a very well equipped kitchen and excellent entertainment (TV’s in the 2 masters and a room with TV and games consoles). The lounge has 3 leather settees and a large flat screen TV with lots of channels and a spare HDMI slot. The king size beds are comfy. There are 2 master bedrooms with en-suite facilities including bath and walk in showers) and 2 rooms with 2 single beds in each. A further W/C and shower room can also be accessed from the pool area. Outside, there is a large covered lanai and a large rectangular pool which (if purchased extra) is heated to a very comfortable 30 C. The garden is huge ( about 1 acre ) and has a separate seating area with a BBQ. The lovely lawns are surrounded by mature trees so the area is completely private. We have been renting in Florida for over 30 years and we have at last found the perfect villa for our needs. Special thanks to Sara the owner, and Martin her manager for prompt support when needed.

A wonderful villa, all as described in advance. The owners were helpful from my initial enquiry to the refund of my security deposit after my trip. The local managers were also approachable and helpful during my trip. We loved this home from home villa nothing was too much trouble we would rent this house again .

Left on Nov 26, 2018 for a stay in Nov 2018
It was a perfect size for 7 adults and we still had an empty bed in one room. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed for food and beverage prep. The outside deck was really nice and we enjoyed the lime trees in the backyard and the size of the backyard. We had a couple of minor hiccups but the owners responded quickly and the items were fixed. Grocery store was close by but restaurant choices that were close were not the best. There were a large assortment of restaurants about 20 minutes away. The pool and spa which we were really looking forward to using were perfect . The owners were great to work with and I have no complaints about their hospitality. I would rent this property again if I ever plan to visit the Orlando area again

This has everything you need in a villa. In a Quiet friendly location but also very private with separate sundeck, pool, and 4 beds. We had a marvellous time at the villa. and recommend this villa to all. The owners did everything possible to make our stay perfect. Many thanks to Sara. Thanks Matt
Another fantastic stay !
Another Fantastic Stay- Planning to Return Left on Apr 2, 2018 for a stay in Feb 2018 This is our second booking with Sara and the villa did not disappoint. It’s conveniently located to attractions but remote enough for rest and relaxation. During our 2 week stay, we spent several afternoons enjoying the beautiful pool area and large yard with play set. The whole property, both inside and out, is spacious and private. It’s newly updated and well maintained with everything our family needed. Looking forward to our next stay as we’re planning a return trip. Many thanks
ANOTHER WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE
Another wonderful experience at Doral Woods Left on Mar 1, 2018 for a stay in Feb 2018 This is the second time that we have stayed at your villa and I must say that we enjoyed our experience all over again. We simply love the 1 acre backyard experience; it is so well kept and groomed and the mature trees that surround give a real sense of privacy. Your pool is always clean and we gravitate about it for much of our idle time, the house is just spectacular ,the house is very nice, very well kept and functional for all our daily routine. We surely enjoyed ourselves once again this year and would be pleased to have the opportunity to come back again soon. Thanks Sara and staff. Mac Phee’s
Fantastic stay with the whole family. Left on Feb 26, 2018 for a stay in Feb 2018 We truly enjoyed our stay at the villa. It was perfect for our 3 adult children and our three grandsons ages 4 to 6. Travel to the Magic Kingdom and splash city was only 20 mins. If needed there was a pediactic clinic less then 10 minutes by car. We were so close to the beautiful park and marina downtown Kissimmee, and enjoyed the “ ship wrecked restaurant. We will be back for sure next season
Large villa beautiful garden
Very large villa with beautiful garden. Left on Jan 15, 2018 for a stay in Dec 2017 Very large villa that had everything in place for a wonderful holiday. Large garden and decking area a bonus and pool also large and heated to suit winter conditions. TV\’s easy to use with the equivalent of SKY so that I could keep up with matches at home. Villa located 30 minutes from Disney and a quiet oasis on our return,lovely. Would recommend to anyone. Rented both villas for Christmas stay 2017.
Hard to beat
Hard to beat Left on Oct 16, 2017 for a stay in Sep 2017 We stayed for 2 weeks and it was fantastic. A good quality villa with a wonderful pool and huge private garden. Kids will love the play area and massive well kept area of grass. We could not fault the property and immediately relaxed into our stay. Book it and love it.
Perfect tranquil base
This property was the perfect tranquil base for an active family holiday. Left on Jun 13, 2017 for a stay in May 2017 We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Florida for our family of 6 adults and our 9 year old granddaughter, Sofia. The main reason for this was the superb villa we stayed in at Evans Drive. It contained a level of luxury that was much appreciated by our party. As well as the facilities and furnishing inside, the private pool and garden were all that we wanted and more. We would highly recommend this property to anyone who is seeking a well appointed villa in a quiet private area that is away from, but close to, all the attractions of the Orlando area
Left on Apr 5, 2017 for a stay in Mar 2017
We had a great family trip to Florida. Very pleased with the house and we will definitely book this rental again. Clean and well maintained. Good size pool and gorgeous backyard. Cant wait to go back.
Our favorite Florida rental yet. Clean, private, everything was great.
Left on Mar 20, 2017 for a stay in Mar 2017
We have stayed in 5 houses over the last few years and this was the best one yet. The house and pool were very clean. The yard was big and well kept. Very private and quiet neighbourhood . Close to 192 that has all the best restaurants, and many places deliver to the house. The attractions are close by, all Disney parks, and fun spot America kissimmee are very close.
Left on Mar 4, 2017 for a stay in Feb 2017
This villa is quite special as it is set on an oversized lot that is surrounded by lush greenery. The villa is very well equipped and we wanted for nothing. My only complaint was that a week is not long enough! Thank you Sarah and Peter.

Lovely spacious clean villa, quiet location but also well located for theme parks
Left on Sep 1, 2016 for a stay in Aug 2016
We stayed for 3 weeks in this lovely Villa in August 2016, visiting all the Disney and Universal Parks and the Villa is well located for this purpose. The Disney Parks are all close together and around half an hour’s drive, Universal a bit further, Busch Gardens around 75 mins, all a comfortable travelling distance. There are shops, fast food outlets and supermarkets less than 10 mins away. Also 10 mins to the highway US192 which has a great selection of restaurants to choose from, we never cooked in the Villa once! The Villa is spacious and was very clean on our arrival. The air con was great – set at a constant 75 degrees, not freezing just comfortably cool. The villa’s Wifi also worked well. The pool is very private and a lovely size for young children, not too deep and there is a high bolt on the door leading to poolside so no worries about them sneaking out to the pool without you knowing, the lanai keeps it clean and bug free. There are more than sufficient towels provided, for the 3 bathrooms and pool use. The kitchen is well equipped and a very good washing machine and drier are provided, together with a vacuum and other cleaning equipment so you can keep the place clean if you are staying for a long time. The games room is great, air conditioned to the same standard as the main house, with a pool table and table football both of which are in excellent condition and a television with its own satellite system. The villa is in a quiet residential area, with mainly local people living there. We barely heard any noise from the other villas, just occasionally pool noise. The villa was perfect for our visit, a great base for the parks and close enough to the local amenities to make it a very enjoyable holiday. Everyone we dealt with before, during and after our stay were very friendly and helpful. If we return to Florida we would definitely stay here again.
PERFECT Left on Jul 11, 2016 for a stay in Jun 2016 Myself and 3 other adults stayed at the villa for 15 nights in June 2016. We all had the same view of the villa, from the moment we arrived it was ‘WOW\ there is plenty of space, the furniture is beautiful and of a very high quality, our view was that this felt like a home, not a property that has been kitted out as ‘just a rental’ property. Everything worked and was in great condition. The beds were extremely comfortable and huge. Pool towels, hangers and hair dryers were even provided. The showers were very powerful too which is always a bonus. The pool was cleaned and gardens maintained while we were there and the people that carried out these tasks were very polite and didn’t interfere with our stay at all. The estate is very quiet and and the neighbours were lovely. The location was perfect for us, as with most villa\’s in Kissimmee a car was required but we were within easy reach of the attractions that we wanted to visit. The booking process was very smooth, we were provided with everything we required and the owners were very quick to respond when I had queries in the run up to our stay. This villa is perfect for families and we wouldn’t hesitate to book again or recommend this villa.

Best Villa in Orlando !
Mark D Glasgow, United Kingdom The best villa in Orlando! Left on Jul 7, 2016 for a stay in Apr 2016 This was our second stay and just like the first, the owner Sara is a pleasure to deal with and the booking process was very smooth. The villa itself is set in a quiet neighbourhood and is immaculate and very well equipped. The outdoor space is fantastic and the large swimming pool and garden is perfect for young families. The garden is one of the key differentiators for us when choosing a villa, as is the condition of the villa itself which in this case is perfect and is clearly very well maintained. We have stayed in a number of villas in Orlando and this is the best by far. If you are in any doubt as to where to stay, I strongly recommend you choose this one as you will not be disappointed.
FANTASTIC VILLA WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED
Fantastic villa with everything you would need stayed in Mar 2016 There were 4 adults and 2 7yr olds that stayed in the villa for this holiday. The villa had everything we needed and the kids loved the large yard and the pool. The beds were all comfortable and the owners very accommodating and helpful. If I have one (very) small complaint then it would be the distance to Disney, Seaworld and Universal. It\’s about a 25-30minute drive which could be longer if you leave during rush hour. The villa was very well located for Walmart and Publix and the area is very quiet. All in all I would recommend the villa without any reservations. OWNER RESPONSE As we say on the website 20 minutes to Disney 30 to Universal.Our villas are high in standards our repeat bookings feel it\’s worth the extra distance to stay in quality villas .
WELL APPOINTED VILLA AS DESCRIBED
123mange Lincolnshire, United Kingdom Well presented clean villa exactly as shown in the websites. Left on Apr 2, 2016 for a stay in Mar 2016 Extremely well presented and appointed villa. Spotlessly clean. Photographs are representative of what you get. Ideally suited to families visiting the theme parks.
NOT JUST A RENTAL BUT A HOME
Not just a rental but a home Left on Mar 27, 2016 for a stay in Mar 2016 This was our third visit and have already booked for next year even before leaving the property. This house has comfort and privacy. The rear garden is HUGE and completely screened. We also stayed at the owner\’s other property nearby and both are immaculate and tastefully furnished. Nice neighbourhood and nice to walk around. If you are into the outdoors we recommend visiting the Disney Wilderness Preserve nearby in Poinciana located 10 minutes away on Old Pleasant Hill Road (left turn before Walmart). This is 12,000 acres of natural Florida countryside under the care of Nature Conservancy. Nothing there other than beautiful walks, visitor center and friendly staff
WELL APPOINTED VILLA WITH HELPFUL OWNERS
Well appointed villa with very helpful owners Left on Mar 05, 2016 for a stay in Jan 2016 We had a long stay at Evans Drive earlier this year. As a result we would reiterate the positive comments made by previous visitors. Not only is the villa well equipped to enable you to enjoy your trip, it is very attractively furnished, has plenty of space including a spacious and private garden. We got to regard the villa as our home. However, I would also like to stress the assistance provided by the owners. I am a full time wheelchair user, and had concerns about the suitability of the villa for me. Not only did the owner call me at home to discuss my needs, they provided additional equipment for me, and kept in contact by phone and e-mail during our stay, to make sure everything was fine
Beautiful villa. Left on Jan 9th 2016 Review from Trip advisor 5 * We had a very relaxing and enjoyable time at Doral Woods, the villa was equipped with everything to make our stay comfortable. We agree with many other guests that the standard of cleanliness and overall presentation of the villa was excellent. Although in a quiet location it is only a short drive to the local shops and very convenient for Disney. It was a pleasure to stay at this villa which is a real credit to the owners and we would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful villa to anyone considering staying in Kissimmee. We have stayed in many villas over the past 20 years and none have come anywhere close to how beautifully presented and clean this villa was.
Fantastic Villa Left on Nov 26, 2015 for a stay in Oct 2015 This fantastic villa was ours for 2 wks wish it had been longer , set on a peaceful estate, it had a large garden .The pool was great for relaxing in after a long day, the villa was very well equipped and had sumptuous furnishing, we had a lovely stay and all agreed it could not have been bettered would recommend anyone to booked a s a p, as this villa will be very popular . Also a big thankyou to Sara the booking prodecure and followup information was excellent (Review from Trip Advisor )
YOU WON’T FIND A BETTER VILLA IN ORLANDO!
You won\’t find a better villa in Orlando!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2015 We have stayed at this villa a number of times , and I would challenge anyone to find a better Villa in Orlando. We have stayed in many villas around Orlando when Sara\’s Villa has already been booked (get in there quick) and I can honestly say, you will be hard to find a better villa. Sara will make sure you have everything you need, and if in the unlikely event there are any issues, they will be resolved very quickly. The pool and the surrounding areas are spotless, and the newly rebuilt sundeck in the fenced in secluded garden just finishes it off. We would book again next year, but sadly it\’s not available for the dates we required
AMAZING MODERN STYLE VILLA
Amazing “modern style” villa with everything you need for a perfect holiday.” 5 of 5 stars Trip Advisor Reviewed June 14, 2015 This villa is amazing. It was a pleasure to stay in a “modern style” Florida villa having stayed in & seen lots of others. This is by far the best I\’ve seen! It was immaculately clean & very well looked after. Our stay here was for 3 weeks with 4 adults & 4 children. Every one of us loved it. It is well equipped with everything you could possibly need plus more! The pool area is perfect, with lots of children\’s toys. The added heat for the pool is a bonus when using the pool late evening. The garden is great, especially to look out on to, rather than looking at a wall or fence. Everything has been thought of here to make your stay extra special. It was an added bonus to be able to speak to Sara with any questions. She was always quick with a response. This villa is a piece of heaven that we will defininely be returning to in the very near future.
PERFECT FOR OUR NEEDS
5 of 5 stars Reviewed today for a stay in June 2015 The villa was exactly what was described and also previously reviewed by others. It was extremely clean and very spacious, it actually looks bigger and better than the photos portray. This was perfect for our group of 8. The decor was suited to English taste, not the more old fashioned style you see with most American rental villas. The kitchen had everything you could need, including several cool boxes, which we certainly needed for the unseasonal high 30s temp! Sara\’s welcome call and others comes where just as speedy as before the visit. Pool was a great size and very clean, the pool man (English) came several times and did his thing. Garage was full of inflatables which kept the kids amused. Lots of towels for pool use provided. Plenty of chairs, tables and loungers. Garage also had a couple of pushchairs, a door gate, washer and dryer and all other tools and equipment you can think of. The villa was about 20-30 mins from Disney depending of traffic, would probably be quicker but for roadworks on the main road up to the 192. The 192 has lots of restaurants and shops (where we ate most days for breakfast or evening meal) and was very handy given it was on the route to and from most attractions. We stayed for 3 weeks and did It want to leave. We will certainly stay here again if we come back to Florida – not something we were originally going to do but before the end of the trip were provisionally planning!
FABULOUS VILLA TRANQUIL SETTING
“A fabulous villa in a lush tranquil setting in a great location. superb!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2015 Trip advisor We stayed here with our 6 year old twin daughters from March 9th to 28th 2015. We have been visiting Florida since 2002 and have stayed in many villas in different areas. This is to date the best we have seen. It is certainly the cleanest. I usually feel the need to clean something when we arrive at a villa but not with this one. The location is ideal. It is in a quiet neighbourhood between Kissimmee and Poinciana, Close enough for the parks, around 20 minute drive, but far enough away for peace and quiet. The villa is large and spacious and has everything you could want and more. The lanai and pool area are fabulous. Not overlooked at all. Nice and big with plenty of room for the sun loungers and chairs. The pool is lovely. It is larger than most we have had and the Jacuzzi is a nice extra. We opted for pool heating and would advise this in March. This Villa comes with Huge landscaped gardens, around an acre I think. Not the norm with most vacation rentals. The garden has its own play area, a swing slide and climbing frame. This was one of the reasons we booked here. Somewhere for our girls to run around and play and they certainly made the most of it. The outlook from the lanai over the garden is beautiful. We spent much of our time here, It is so peaceful. It is very safe for children here, with alarms on all doors that lead to the pool. The villa is well maintained and benefits from regular upgrades. Sara the owner from time of first enquiry through to our departure has been extremely helpful. Sara called us the day after our arrival to check all was ok, and was on hand with any questions we had throughout our stay and was always happy to advise us. We would not hesitate to stay here on our next visit. A very Big Thank you to Sara and Peter for a wonderful time
WONDERFUL FAMILY HOLIDAY
Wonderful family holiday in Florida” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2015 NEW from Trip advisor I would like to tell you how much our family enjoyed our holiday this year. It has been 4 years since we have been able to have a getaway, and we were so pleased when it happened that all of us were able to have time off this year to share in the warmth of Florida. I must say that Sara’s villa was a wonderful part of our experience. The place was in excellent condition. The master bedrooms were very tasteful and nice and the rest of the home was comfortable and livable. I must say that the pool and the backyard were simply delightful. We enjoyed the pool daily. It often became a place to start the day as well as a place to finish. The backyard was private and beautiful and we enjoyed a lovely barbeque and supper on the outdoor deck. In conclusion,our family had a wonderful time together in Florida this year and we would be most inclined to return to your home again on Evans Drive, if we can get back there again sometime soon.(we are hoping for next year)
ANOTHER WONDERFUL STAY !
“Another WONDERFUL Stay!!!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2015 NEW from Trip advisor This was our second stay at the villa and again, it was fantastic!! With our surprise it had many updates from our previous stay only last year. We have many favorites at the villa, but mostly we love how safe and private it is for us and our children. The villa has everything you could imagine! From the appliances in the kitchen to the strollers in the garage, ohhh and the really comfortable beds and pillows, this home has it all! The villa is a home away from home! We spent many days at Disney but our favorite and happiest days were spent at the villa, enjoying the pool and quiet, family time too. The owners and management are very kind and go above and beyond to make sure your stay is everything and more. We hope to visit again very soon!!
Simply Outstanding” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2015 NEW from Trip advisor We spent our last holiday in Florida trailing around the parks and decided we would like a more relaxing vacation this time and spending it at Doral Woods did not disappoint. We could not fault Sara and Peter’s villa in any way, every detail is ticked away and the villa is in immaculate condition inside and out, it’s superbly equipped with all the extras that you would expect. The pool area is superb and the immaculately manicured gardens with its large decked area just added another dimension and what a pleasure it was to share the grounds with such varied wildlife. Doral Woods is in a great position, not too far from the hustle and bustle yet far enough to feel that you have “got away from it all”. The villa is positioned in a lovely residential area and not overlooked in any way giving complete privacy. If we return to Florida we wouldn’t hesitate to return to this super villa and could not recommend it more to anyone wanting to stay somewhere that is…. “Simply Outstanding”
AS GOOD AS IT GETS
As good as it gets…” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed stay in October 2014 When we arrived at the villa we were blown away, It was clean, well presented and extremely modern…and most definitely had the WOW factor!! Everyone in our party were excited and more so on seeing the terrific pool and huge garden. We\’ve stayed in Kissimmee Florida several times and this home is by far the best on every level. Plenty of space and enough seats for all, very comfortable beds and pillows. Only a short drive to the Theme parks and other attractions. This home offers true privacy, to have the large garden and just to be surrounded by trees was great. Loads of birds, butterflies and the odd sighting of small animals. All very relaxing to return to at the end of the day. The children loved the pool and towards the end of our holiday had pool and garden days, It was perfect! Sara called us when we arrived to welcome us and provided excellent customer service throughout our stay, she clearly values her customers.We will certainly be back here and would be happy to recommend this excellent villa
A slice of Heaven with whipped cream !!
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23 Trip advisor 2014 This was our second visit to Sara\’s Doral Woods villa. We were so thrilled with our choice last year, that we booked again without hesitation. We were more than confident that the villa would be every bit as fantastic as we had remembered, and it was. We felt a huge wave of excitement, as we pulled onto the drive, and the garage courtesy lights burst into life for our after-dark arrival. We were aware that the villa had been updated, as Sara had very kindly given us full details of the upgrades before we came over. We entered the villa, to find that the management company had switched on a few lamps in the living room and hall, in preparation for our arrival. Simple, but lovely, welcoming touch. It was this ambient lighting that perfectly showcased the lovely new living room, with perfectly symmetrical layout, comprising of 2 new leather sofas, sizeable new coffee table, all new table and floor lamps, large TV console complete with 55 inch flatscreen, Dish cable receiver, and blu ray player. All this as well as brand new dark wooden flooring, and occasional chair. The kitchen too, had undergone a transformation, with new granite counter tops, large fridge with ice dispenser/crusher, dishwasher, and coffee machine. Not forgetting the new dining table and chairs in the adjoining nook area. The master bedrooms had both had new wooden flooring, and the master bedroom which backs onto the pool, had upgraded vanity units, and new shower cubicle. ( Pete, the owner, was even coming over after our stay, to exact further upgrades to the other bathrooms). Everything we loved about this villa last year, we adored this year. To come back after a day at the parks, beach, or shopping, and either order take out, or call for some deli from publix on the way home, and enjoy it on the patio by the pool, was heavenly. I even prepared a few meals in the wonderfully appointed kitchen, which seems to have every conceivable item of crockery, bake ware, and utensil. I even found a meat thermometer, and as an amateur chef, i was in raptures. This was only our second time visiting in November, in over 30 visits, and we had forgotten that occasional, and usually brief cold spells, can make sitting on the patio, particularly in the evening, a rather chilly affair. However, the pool was so warm ( 83f), that it didn\’t matter. I would definitely recommend pool heat during cooler months-worth every penny. We spent a very happy 2 weeks in this wonderful villa. The Villa itself is very special indeed, with it\’s gorgeous pool, and outsized, 1 acre garden with play area and huge decking. What makes it even more special for me, is that it is owned by 2 lovely, kind, caring, family-orientated people, who are just as obsessed with all things Florida, as we are. Furthermore, they sincerely want you to enjoy their lovely home as much as they do, and this is why i love this place, and can\’t wait to return. Review from Trip advisor
WOW FACTOR VILLA !!!!
We have stayed at Doral woods several times this being our first trip to your\” wow factor villa\” , It truly is lovely! The children loved the garden and spent lots of time out there. Thank you Sara for all your help, overall we had a fantastic time and felt very much at home . We would love to come back
Exceeded our Expectations
This was our first trip to Florida and the villa greatly exceeded our expectations. Lovely pool, huge garden, quiet neighbourhood and all extremely private. A luxury villa with all the amenities you would want. Everything was quality and the selection of TV stations was exceptional. Although we did not require them we always knew from discreet contact that someone would be available to assist if required. Easy drive to all the attractions but the roads can be busy at peak times. Watch out for a mass exit from parks if the rain comes on! This can cause some traffic delay. All in all a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend this villa which has plenty of space for up to 8 people
We spent 3 weeks here and have to say it is by far the best villa we have stayed at . With a 3 year old and twins of 2 it was ideal . The garden with the play area and private pool area was so easy to relax in . The location is perfect and close to the attractions . We would like to thank you both for great communication before and during our stay . You really have a fantastic villa that feels like home !
We stayed at the villa for two weeks in September and were delighted with both the villa and the customer service from Sara, the owner. The villa is tastefully decorated and was spotlessly clean. The owners clearly invest in the villa as the dishwasher, fridge/freezer, granite work tops and shower in master bedroom were all brand new and the rest of the villa was extremely well maintained. The villa was very well equipped with plenty of garden furniture and every conceivable kitchen accessory, as well as equipment for our 6 month old baby. The garden is huge and well maintained, as is the pool and surrounding area. We had a lovely holiday and this is without doubt one of the best villas in Orlando. It is certainly the best we have stayed in and will be our first port of call in future. If you are visiting Orlando, look no further as you will not find better
BEST STAY EVER
The best stay ever” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014 We are from Ohio, we found exactly what we needed , a big house , pool is big and clean , the property is great , big yard , total privacy .i would recommend this property to anyone looking for a great place to stay .
Fabulous villa, definitely worth the extra, we fully recommend it.” 5 of 5 stars Tripadvisor The villa is a very good one. I searched and searched to find somewhere as it was our first trip to Orlando and I wanted to be able to escape the Disney madness at the end of the day and come to somewhere calm and peaceful. Also, crazy I know as it was to be a holiday home for a week, I wanted somewhere that was clean and pleasant to be in. All the villa\’s I saw were either Travelodge like or decorated so far from my own taste that it would have annoyed me to live there! This villa is a great happy medium – enough features and detail to be welcoming but not so many that you feel you have walked into someone\’s else\’s house and life! Garden is huge, lovely, and much nicer to look at rather than a neighbours pool! Lots of the reviews mention how clean it is and it is true, its is VERY clean with no grotty grouting or manky corners. No point in going through all it offers, as it is all there in the property details. Our kids are 8 and 11 so no baby stuff needed but it was there in the garage. READ THE FULL REVIEW ON TRIPADVISOR
A HARD ACT TO FOLLOW
Having twice made the mistake of letting someone else choose our accommodation in Florida we were determined to do it ourselves this time – and we are so glad that we did. Evans Dr had exactly what we were looking for; ‘Away from it all’ (but still close enough to the attractions), beautiful garden to relax in and very comfortable throughout the extremely well equipped property. In short, a world away from our first two experiences of holiday homes in Florida!! Our only disappointment is that the property is booked up for when we want to go next year – it will be a hard act to follow having set the bar so high.’
OUR FIFTH STAY …PERFECT !
Our fifth stay – perfect for peace, privacy and relaxation. Home from home.” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014 This was our fifth stay in the villa which we keep returning to as we couldn\’t ask for more. The villa offers a peaceful stay away from the hustle and bustle whilst still being within driving distance of the attractions of Orlando. The villa is continually being refurbed to a high standard and is spotless throughout. The garden is our big plus as it is a really relaxing and almost tropical area to sit and relax in. I would really recommend this villa (and I am a fussy traveller) but don\’t want it to get any more popular for fear we can\’t return! Oh and Sara, the owner, is fantastic – great at communication and the knowledge she would respond immediately to any problems or queries before, during and after.
A PIECE OF PARADISE !
“A piece of paradise!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014 This was our third vacation house rental in Kissimmee, Florida. It was definitely our favorite! Sara, the home owner, made the arrangements so easy and accommodating. On our arrival, our plane was delayed which can sometimes make getting the key for the villa difficult, but Sara\’s villa was easy to find! The villa was beautiful and spotlessly clean it was absolutely perfect. Any kind of kitchen utensils, cooking ware, pool toys, beach toys, cooler for picnics, barbeque- anything to make our stay a wee bit more comfortable was there! The pool and yard are huge- I don’t think you could ever find a nicer yard than this one. For families with young kids, it is perfect. There is even a play structure!! And lots of room to run around! We had requested pool heat (which I would recommend in March) Sara even called at the beginning of the stay, to check on how things were going! We will definitely be returning to this piece of paradise!! Thank you Sara and Pete ps Pete, the renovations are beautiful!!
“Absolutely PERFECT!!!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014 I cannot stress enough how perfect this villa is! Our family of 4 ( my husband, our 2 children, 2 and 4, and myself) rented this villa for our first family vacation for 2 weeks. When we weren\’t at the parks, we spent many hours either in the pool, the spa or running around outside in the private lawn area. Our children loved the swing set as well. The house is very spacious and well equipped with every thing you may need! The house was VERY clean and welcoming. Location was perfect! Quiet but close to area attractions. The entire rental process was easy yet professional. Sara checked in with us several times to ensure our vacation was going well. We will definitely be back for future vacations!! I highly recommend this villa!!!!
AMAZING FAMILY HOME
“AMAZING FAMILY HOME!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014 We (family with a 10- and 11-year-old) had the pleasure of staying in this villa from Jan 28 – Feb 6, 2014 . The house was exactly as described with no surprises. The bedrooms were spacious and the living space was cozy and felt like home. The kitchen was well stocked with small appliances for cooking, baking or just making tea and coffee. There were plenty of towels for the pool and for the bathrooms. Sara checked in with us to ensure we had arrived safely to see if we had any questions or concerns. The house was clean and welcoming on arrival and we had contact numbers should any issues arise. The pool was well used by our kids (and make sure you add pool heat to your stay during the “winter”) and the garage had some great pool toys for the kids. The BBQ and deck were a wonderful addition to the HUGE backyard and we enjoyed our evenings sitting out there. I cannot say enough about this well cared for, well equipped villa.
Simon Stayed from December 17th 2013 – January 6th 2014. Being a veteran of villa rentals, from full service to turn key, I definitely know what I like and what I don’t like. My top 4 criteria are (1) location of villa (2) cleanliness (3) villa amenities (4) ease of booking and communications with the owner. Sara’s villa scores 5 stars across the range. One of my bug bears when renting private villas is that often they are ‘surface’ clean and you end up spotting things that have not been done adequately and doing it yourself. Not the case with this villa…everything was spotless, a credit to the property management team. Amenities…well… I don’t think I have ever rented a villa where so much has been provided as standard. Pressure cooker, blender, inflatables for the pool, high chairs, to name but a few, all in addition to the standard things you find in holiday villas. I can’t remember ever finding a knife sharpening block in a rental villa drawer before…(no need to pack corkscrews either…there is two…) It is also very obvious that care is taken in maintaining and upgrading the villa, this indicates an owner who has pride in what they provide with a clear view of what their upgrade schedule is. Pool is slightly larger than standard, outside lanai area was excellent and in great condition. Full size deck with BBQ, full size dining table plus occasional table was an extra bonus to use when relatives and friends came around. Sara is great at communicating before, during and after the rental. Great up front villa and area information, quick return of deposit post rental as well. I liked the ‘how is it for you’ call from Sara because the timing of the call was just right. There is not the ‘you are ten seconds in the villa and the owner calls’ type scenario, Sara rightly left the call to the third day we were in the villa…that way if anything was wrong we would have likely spotted it by then. Perfect. Final tip for renting in December/January – the temperature drops overnight so you do need pool heating. We were able to use the pool from dawn to dusk because we had this. A great find and I am glad I spent a few hours checking villa reviews out before choosing! I would definitely recommend this villa.
PERFECT HOLIDAY PERFECT VILLA
This is our 2nd time at Sara\’s house at Doral Woods and once again it was a perfect holiday everything you will ever need is there from the luxury of the house which has so much space that even with a big family your not ever under each others feet then you have the pool area which for children & adults is great and then there\’s the garden, well what can I say just fantastic.You have everthing you could want as we\’ll as being a short drive from the theme parks and numerous amount of resturants. All I can say is thankyou Sara for letting us use your wonderful home again. All the best the Foster Family
We stay twice a year
We have been staying at this villa twice a year, which says it all” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013 NEW We have been going to Orlando twice a year now for the last 4 years and we have stayed at Sara\’s villa each time, I searched for a very long time to get the perfect villa and believe me this is the one, a very large peaceful back garden, which is very rare to find in Orlando. You will not be disappointed with this villa inside or out. It has everything you need for a brilliant holiday. Thank you Sara and Pete
“Beautiful villa, beautiful garden and pool, brilliant holiday”Stayed for 2 weeks late September early October 2013. Villa was exactly as described. It is very well appointed and immaculately clean. The owner, Sara, was very helpful prior to our departure and is clearly very \’hands on\’ in terms of the management of the property. Pool was excellent and the garden very well maintained. We have stayed in many villas in the Kissimmee area over the years and would highly recommend this property
FIRST CLASS ACCOMMODATION
“First-class accommodation, inside and out.”This is a first-class pristine villa. The substantial garden, climbing frame, patio area and pool were in tip top condition and the rooms were spotless, stylish and comfortable. Well-equipped with all mod cons and entertainment facilities. The owners offer a very professional service together with that personal touch that made their villa into my home for 10 days. I have booked the villa again for next year for my sons and grandchildren. That\’s a testimonial in itself… Highly recommended!
FAB, FAB, FAB
“Fab,Fab,Fab. Couldn’t have asked for more . Everything in first class working order. Easy to find, close enough to all the attractions to be a short drive from everywhere. Delightful house, with large pool and deck area. The extended garden gave a feeling of total peace and tranquillity. Just wish we could have stayed another 2 weeks or even more
We are villa newbies so we spent months browsing the internet for the right villa . Pools were plentyful but privacy was much sought after.We discovered a lovely villa in Doral woods . I could go on about this wonderful home , if you want a nice relaxing break in a secluded spot , in a wonderfully appointed villa with a lovely pool and stunning garden from owners that are a sheer delight from start to finish , then this is your place ! ( full review on Trip advisor Executive villa set in one acre fenced and private )

YOUR HOUSE IS AMAZING
We can’t say anything other than your house is amazing! It’s so clean and tidy so spacious which we like.It literally had everything you need and more. The pool was fantastic and nice and warm . The villa is situated in a peaceful location as well and the garden was absoulutely lovely. Our son thought the climbing frame was brilliant , he loved watching the squirrels and it was difficult to get him out of the villa and to the parks !We can’t thank you enough and hope to be back soon!!
We have just come back from 4 weeks holiday at this villa, having been to Florida and stayed in other villas for the past 6 years, this by far is the best ever .The villa is spacious very clean and full of all the modern comforts you wouldn’t find elsewhere . The outside space is the thing that blew us away There is a lanai and large pool that has sun most of the day .Sara is brilliant , any problem sorted within minuets and that’s from UK ! I really can’t recommend this villa enough !
We have stayed at this villa 5 times now and have always found it in perfect condition . If your looking for a villa that gives you everything in a quiet neighbourhood then this is the one . We will always use this villa when visiting Florida , it’s our home from home !!
