Marilyn Yeend, Eastbourne

"I just wanted to drop you a line and say thanks for the use of your Florida home. We all had an absolutely fabulous week. The house worked out great for us it was in a great location. We really had a great time and would like to rent the house again in the future."


Diana Maxfield, Maine

Cynthia Heady, Michigan

"We are delighted with your lovely home it`s F A N T A S T I C.We would love to come back to enjoy your beautiful home in the near future, and we will certainly recomend to our friends."


Judith Fountain, Durham

"We had the pleasure of enjoyiong your villa from February 17-26,2005. It was the perfect vacation spot for our family ( Dave & I, our children with their spouses and children) a total of 6 adults and 4 children under the age of 7. The accommodations were as described and more. We spent several days in the parks and it was very easy to bring the tired children "home" for a swim in the pool or a nap. We would highly recommend your villa to anyone looking for a comfortable vacation for their family"


Nancy Nicolson, Colonie,NY

"The whole family had a fabulous time - the villa is exactly as advertised, all mod-cons and totally equipped, plus perfectly situated for the big attractions. We had the bonus of an aligator in the lake behind the house, and regular visits from eagles swooping over the house ! Couldn't ask for better - and would be delighted to act as a reference should anyone ever ask."


David Cox, Potter's Bar, UK

"Please know that my family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your beautiful home, and will cherish the memories of our trip to Orlando."


Charles Hatz, California

"Firstly, let me say that your villa was fantastic and was exactly the place we needed for our busy Orlando break. Both my family and friends all agreed that we would love to stay in the villa again on our next visit to Florida (which is likely to be Sep/Oct 2007)."


Robin Hughes, Berkshire

"We really enjoyed our stay in your villa last week. Everything was perfect. It was great having the computer/internet access, along with all the other amenities provided. The food/staples provided was a very nice touch, along with your notebook filling us in on everything. "


Tom Price, Indianapolis

" Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful vacation at your villa in Kissimmee! It is a beautiful house and probably the best equipped house we have ever rented! The kids had a great time with the game room, as well as some of the adults! The groceries that were waiting for us when we arrived were a nice surprise and greatly appreciated! We had great weather and were very busy at the parks most of the week. "


Arlene Mader, Dalton, GA

"Just to let you know that we had a fantastic holiday and will be hard pushed to find accommodation this good anywhere else!! As usual the only problem was having to come back to work. "


Bernie Heaney, Mellor, Lancashire

"In the absence of a guest comment book at the villa we would all like to thank you for the wonderful time we spent in your lovely home. From the moment we arrived outside the house we could tell we were in for something special and we certainly were not disappointed. The welcome grocery pack was a blessing as we were late arriving and this saved us having to shop at 11.00pm after the tiring journey. You have obviously spent a lot of time and effort equiping the villa as everything one could ever need was catered for. The walkie talkies were invaluable. This was to be a special holiday for myself and family as I am terminally ill and will not get to travel again, so once again thank you so much for making it all that I could have wished for. I am sure that should any of my children ever wish to return to Florida they will certainly contact you and be assured we will recommend to other friends and family. Many thanks. Ps. The alligator in the lake was an added surprise which fascinated my grandchildren. "


Ray Turrell, Burgess Hill

"We all enjoyed two great weeks in your very comfortable villa. We found it to be very well equipped with everything we needed and more. Its close proximity to all the Disney attractions made it a great base for our holiday. My boys actually enjoyed the pool so much they asked to spend more time back at the villa instead of in the parks. On our next visit we will definitely factor in some more pool time! I can highly recommend the villa for a great Florida holiday."


Alison Shedden, Scotland

"We all wanted to say how much we enjoyed our holiday at your villa. The Villa was just fantastic with everything and more! for a wonderful holiday. Thank you so much. "


Beverly Nundy, Cottingham, East Yorkshire

"We recently returned from a fantastic vacation at your villa. This was the fifth occasion that Nancy and I have rented a villa in the Orlando area and the fourth at Cumbrian Lakes. Your villa was by far the nicest. "


Richard and Nancy, Wisconsin

"Here in Florida and we LOVE the house!! The kids are so excited! Thank you sooooo much!"


Sue Shanahan, Conneticut Feb 2011

"This is our third rental in the area and it was better equipped and more welcoming than the other two. Wonderful experience and good information from the owner so we were prepared when we arrived. "


Dennis Maxwell, Alabama 2012

"We did find the villa equipped to meet our needs. We have stayed in several villas. My kids enjoyed having the individual game consoles in different bedrooms. Mom enjoyed this as there was no bickering over which game to play!"


Deirdre Milton, Colorado, 2012

"Have rented many villa's in the area and yours was very well equipped. Was very clean and in great condition. Probably the cleanest and best managed villa I have rented. Nothing negative I think your doing a terriffic job with the property. "


Chuck Stinton, Ontario, 2012

"We stayed at a west gate resort time share for 2 weeks. Our stay at your villa was much more enjoyable. It was our first time staying at a villa like this. The villa had everything that we could think of. A second refrigerator would have been useful because of the size of our party. the villa was exceptionally clean. "


Don Lalonde, Ontario, 2013

"Very well equipped, yes we have rented in orlando before,the 2 week prior email with check in information was great we have always had issues with checking in except this time. the pool heat and hot tub were great again we have payed for heated pools before but yours was the only one that was warm. Location was great, pool was great, the safety alarm for by the pool was a bit annoying, good to have for kids but we were with 4 adults and wish there would have been a bybass. "


Esther Veurink, Alberta, 2013

"Very lovely home and nicely equipped. Excellent directions. Very clean. I would be glad to give you a A-1 recommendation. "


Elizabeth Hayne, Tenessee, 2013

"The Villa was very well equipped for every need. We've not rented any other home in the Orlando area but it did cater for our every need. Binoculars were a great addition for watching birds around the lake. Spotless, it was cleaned well and all kitchen equipment was clean. The view over the lake was an amazing way to unwind. The Villa had everything we needed and more. The games room, pool and FIFA 13 kept our boys amused for hours and often they were wanting just to stay in. The bird book and binoculars were great, I was hooked for hours spotting the birds around the lake. The vultures, osprey's and kites were captivating. "


Alison de Asha, Crosby, UK, 2013

"We loved the open plan style and spacious nature of the villa. It was very roomy. We thought the location was great, good view, quiet community site. Excellent information on everything we would need for the villa. We greatly appreciated the free telephone calls - which came in useful when one member of the party needed to call the UK urgently. We all had a great holiday and really enjoyed the time we spent in your lovely home - thank you. "


Wendy Griffith, Shrewsbury, UK, 2013

"We have rented up to seven different villas but never one with as much attention to the finer details e.g. binoculars, baby items, prams, booster seats etc. walkie talkies, sat nav, DVDs, books, games all geared to make anyone's holiday run smoothly All positive the sunshine on the pool was superb the facilities provide we're second to none in total a truly memorable experience will be booking again "


Terry Whittaker, Skelmersdale, UK, 2013

"The Villa is very well equipped. There wasn't really anything that we needed that was not available. We've rented from other homes in the area, and have come back to this one 5 or 6 times now. We love the area, the gated community, the view of the lake and fountains and the fact that we're not more than 15 minutes away from the Disney parks, and lots of restaurants. We found the the villa to be extremely clean and are amazed by it's continued upkeep. Every year we visit we find the villa remains "fresh.""


Chris Battles, Sandown, NH February 2014

"Yes the villa was very well equipped. We have stayed in 4 other locations over the last 7 years and compares to our first house, which now is usually occupied by it's owners when we wish to be in Florida. This is the first home that the hot tub actually worked and was a hot tub. There was kleenex and soap supplied, the television system is amazing and a very nice selection of movies. Loved the fact that the three larger rooms had their own bathrooms."


Randy Abel, Ontario, March 2014

"Your villa was in a great location and well equipped."


Jennifer Brouwer, Ontario, April 2014

"The villa was very well equipped, and yes we have rented in the area before, your villa had more amenities. BBQ and hot tub and more bathrooms."


Sharon Golds, Ontario, May 2014

"The villa was extremely clean. Felt like home and was obviously recently updated inside and out. Modern updates were very attractive as we searched for our rental. The experience was awesome. I wouldn't change anything. Your photos were recent and accurate. The systems you have in place for travelers is second to none. The accommodations and additions were very well thought and superior to any other rental we've stayed in. Think you again!"


Chris Meade, Ohio,June 2014

"The villa was very well equipped especially with the huge TV in the main living area. Also with So many other gadgets, too many to name here. The 3 games tables in the Air-conditioned garage was well used unlike some others we have used where the games room is too hot. Cumbrian Lakes is very well positioned being close to the popular West Irlo Bryson Highway (The 192) with many restaurants and almost a straight line up to join the I4 for getting to Universal and Sea World etc. The estate is not big and was also very peaceful with no noisy neighbours. It also felt extremely safe at all times."


Sandy Seivewright, Penicuik, Scotland June 2014

"First time in Florida so nothing to compare to but the villa was a real home from home and all the little extras like a needle and thread. For everyday usage there was nothing we required you did not have. Always a worry when you view things online that you are seeing the property on a good day. This was not the case for the villa, it was clean and well maintained as viewed online."


Heather Fletcher, Dalkeith, Scotland,July 2014

"We had a fantastic holiday, facilitated in part by the excellent accommodation. It provided us with an ideal base while visiting the parks but it was also a great place to hang out for a restful day around the pool"


Helen Wislon-Law, West Sussex, England, August 2014

"The villa was very well equipped and had everything we needed. We have rented another house in Cumbrian lakes and this villa was right on par, very child friendly. We absolutely didn't have any negative, all positive."


Danielle Sparkes, Newfoundland, Canada August 2014

"Home had everything we neede . We have owned and rented our own home in kissimmee for many many years and this was a Lovely home. Positive is that the owners are lovely people who want to do the best for their visitors. Owner a lovely friendly man. I would rent from him again. Lovely house. We had a Lovely time."


Jacqueline Beaumont,West Kirby, England December 2014

"..have rented villas in other parts of Orlando & elsewhere in Florida. This house was particularly well appointed and family orientated. The location is excellent for relaxing yet close enough to all activities and shopping. Positives - location, comfort, accessibility, general decor and atmosphere of the villa. It is a superior style villa and It feels like everything has been thought of to accommodate all types of guests . The rental experience was smooth & efficient. "


Elizabeth Preston, Uphall, Scotland, December 2014

"Excellent villa, well equipped. "


Allan Lees, Kirkcaldy, Scotland February 2015

"The villa was very well eqipped, this is our 3 time renting a villa in the area. My friend also owns a villa in Cumbrian Lakes. Your villa offerred the south facing pool and a nicer games room."


Mike Coombe, Ontario, Canada,February 2015

"Your villa is very well equipped, with the new television system being a big improvement on your previous set up. As you know, we have had the pleasure of staying in your villa before, as well as several other villas over the years, and yours definitely compares very favourably.The cleanliness was absolutely faultless, with all furnishings in an very acceptable condition.We are perfectly happy with all aspects of your villa in terms of levels of comfort, and all facilities available. "


Alastair Fountain, Lennoxtown, Scotland, February 2015

"The villa was very well equipped. We have rented 5 other houses in Cumbrian Lakes and this home met all of our needs by far! Three of the five bedrooms having ensuites was a huge plus. The television and electronics were superb. Lots of towels. The pool was immaculate and the hot tub actually worked. Booking and dealing with the owner was very seamless.Villa was very clean. Carpets were freshly cleaned and house smelled lovelyProperty manager was very helpful and stops by to ensure our visit to the home was meeting our expectations. Have not had that with our past rentals. Love the home and wanted to return for a month next year.In our minds it was the best experience we have had and we wanted to return."


Denise Abel, Ontario, Canada, March 2015

"The villa simply has everything you could need and more! We have stayed in a number of other villas in the Orlando / Kissimmee area but won't be staying anywhere else from now on. No other villa comes close to its layout or levels of equipment - the owners have simply thought of everything - right down to having chalk to match the pool table cloth! I would especially recommend this villa to families travelling with children of all ages. Endless amounts of entertainment, and no need for parents to bring children equipment from home taking up valuable packing space - the villa has it all!"


Nathan Jones, Newport, UK, April 2015

"Very well equipped and first time rented a villa"


Stuart Bennett, Littlehampton, UK, May 2015

"Our family had a great holiday in the villa which lived up to our expectations completely. Would recommend to anyone looking for villa accommodation in the Kissimmee area."


Alasdair McBain, Falkland, UK July2015

"We have stayed in lots of US villas and we found this one to contain everything we needed, lots of kitchen equipment, plates Tec which is often lacking in some, lots of clear notices around the property for assistance, a comprehensive welcome guide/pack for the area and villa, nice layout for a family group and a separate seating area if you want a quiet zone . It was very clean and very good standards of upkeep, Lots of dvd if you fancy a night in and a ps4 to keep the kids quiet when raining and even a sat nav to use, I couldn't have asked for anything more."


Darren Ashcroft, Wakefield, UK July 2015

"The villa was very well equipped, it was exactly like the picture, and had more than we even expected. We have never rented a villa before.We really enjoyed our stay at this villa. We went with our son and his family and they were very happy also. We all enjoyed the pool and hot tub being attached to the villa."


Sonya Michem, Virginia, November 2015

"The villa had everything that a person could need to have a fun vacation. The books, board games, DVD's, game consoles, and computer were nice additions to the game tables and pool. The notebook that was put together for helpful tips and information of the area was appreciated and very thoughtfully put together. I have not rented any other vacation home for years but this home had so much more to offer than the ones I have rented in the past.We had an excellent time. There were no negatives to the whole visit. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who is going to that area. It is tastefully decorated and offers comfort for any age that is visiting."


Kerry Swarthy, Pennsylvania, February 2016

"Yes, it was very well equipped. Our group has rented other villas nearby, and this one is more well-equipped than some of the others. In particular, we appreciate the addition of a crock pot since the last time we were there, and the addition of wash cloths with the towel sets! Other additions might include: more storage containers for leftovers (we cooked almost all meals at the villa).Love this villa! Will always start with you, and PCD Property Care, when we are planning our trips to Give Kids the World."


Colleen Bryan, Ohio, February 2016

"Villa was very well equipped and clean. We have rented several others in the area and this was by far the best. Furniture and beds were very comfortable and well set out in their respective rooms. Plenty information and we made good use of wifi and the sat nav ( which was invaluable).As previously mentioned, we found the cleanliness in both the inside and outside to be of a very high standard. Everything was pristine and we really appreciated that. A first class comfortable home where everyone had plenty of room to move around. The pool area was brilliant and used every day morning and evening. The beds were very comfortable and the information ( and sat nav) were a great help"

Peter Moir, Carnoustie, Scotland, March 2016

"The villa had everything we needed and then some. This was the first time we rented in the Orlando area. We had no issues, problems, or concerns everything really was fantastic. My husband and I have already told several people who are looking to rent while visiting and suggested the villa."


Debbie Baldassarre,, Pennsylvania, March 2016

"The only thing missing from the Villa was a Butler. We were a party of 10, various ages and we had absolutly no complaints regarding any aspect of the Villa.We actually met up with 2 couples who were on the same flight, both agreed that Scotsmans retreat was superior to the Villa rented by themselves.We as a party could not fault the facility, you are always apprehensive on making bookings without any recommendations, however from the first communication to Alan until we departed we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and will undoubtedly return. The location, Villa and all the facilitied made this a memorable holiday"


Bill Logan, Airdrie, Scotland, April 2016

"Yes, the villa was very(!) well equipped. I have had the opportunity to rent other homes, villas & condos in the Orlando area and have chosen to return to your villa the past two visits because of the outstanding accommodations. It is well kept, has everything we need, the neighborhood is outstanding, the game room is a great bonus for late night fun, it has plenty of room for a large family and it is close to Disney as well as markets and restaurants. This is our second visit and we have never had any negative aspects. While there are too many positive aspects to mention, I would highlight them as: * Extremely clean with anything we need at our fingertips. * The design of the villa provides plenty of room for a large family while, at the same time, not feeling like you are on top of each other. * Pool is clean, neighborhood is quiet. * Playground down the road within the neighborhood is a great place for kids to enjoy themselves. * The game room / bonus room is a great place for the family. * It is down the road from markets, restaurants and only 10 minutes from Disney! * Plenty of movies for the family and the kids available at the villa."


Katrina Delicato, Rhode Island, USA, June 2016

"Yes the villa was very well equipped, we have rented other villas in Orlando but this one was by far the cleanest, most well equipped and appeared to be freshly decorated inside and out. The only villa we have stayed in never to have any insect problems, inside or out."


Graham Moores, Manchester, UK, June 2016

"The house was very well equipped. It compares very favourably with other villas I have visited it in the area. Actually it is better than some I have visited. The boys did like the large tv and the large variety of channels which we haven't had in the past. Everything was very clean inside and out apart from the mess left in the bins by the previous customers.The villa is in a fantastic area and is very well kept and looked after. After 3 weeks I was not looking forward to returning home. I also enjoyed sitting by the pool in the morning drinking coffee and watching the wildlife around the lake. "


Gillian Gaywood, Cardiff, Wales, July 2016

"The villa was very well equipped. Yes we have rented on Cumbrian Lakes twice before through Thomsons. Your home beat them both for cleanliness, location and entertainment, Spa pool being a highlight. Everything positive, location of the villa on the lake was perfect, kids loved the pool table and air hockey, while it was so convenient to plan our trips out on the home PC provided. Cable tv was excellent for a catch up on the news and weather (news13) and films of an evening. The spa in the pool was well received too :)"


Mark Roberts, Wrexham, Wales, July 2016

"The villa is extremely well equipped, and not only that, but the quality of the equipment and furnishings is fantastic. Everything looks new, and it becomes immediately clear that the villa is loved and very well looked after.The villa is spotless - inside and out, and has been on all of our visits. This is testament to the owners and management company."


Nathan Jones, Newport, Wales, August 2016

"The villa had everything we needed. Having the use of a gas grill was a nice accommodation.We liked all the accommodations and will definitely try and rent the same villa next year. The spa warmed up quickly to 102 degrees every time we used it. The kitchen had everything we needed. The management company responded promptly to the one inquiry we made regarding which laundry soap we could purchase for the washing machine."


Bob Rensel, Ohio, December 2016

"The villa was very well equipped compared to other villas we have rented on the same estate. The villa was furnished to a high standard.The villa was clean on arrival and was impressive.We met Phil the manager on one occasion and he was very pleasant and helpful.The coded door entry was a real benefit as when we previously stayed with the family it was difficult with just one key if members of the family wanted to do something different from the group."


Mark Tracey, Devon, England, October 2016

"We were absolutely delighted with the accommodation and felt completely at home. The house itself was so well equipped with everything we could possibly require and the beautiful furnishings made us feel comfortable and relaxed. Our children were also thrilled with the disney themed bedrooms and had lots of fun in the pool and games room too. This was our first visit to Disney and after a busy day at the parks it was so lovely to return to your beautiful home to unwind. We can not thank you enough for helping to make our holiday so special. "
