Guest's opinion of our Villa

We stayed here from the 14th -30th September 2017 3 days short of our original date due to hurricane Irma.  

On arrival Nick’s wife, daughters and grandchildren were there getting things back to normal after Irma (I must say they did a great job) they must have needed a holiday when they got home.

The villa is in a great location for all the attractions, shops, restaurants and I 4 with everything you need, it is a great homely villa with everything you need even for our 18month grandson who was with us, plenty of toys for all ages Highchair, cot, car seat and booster seats for older children, my husband loved the hot tub at the end of a busy day the pool was also great with changing coloured light.

All in all we had a very comfortable stay in this villa and Nick kept us well informed with all the going on’s during the hurricane.

Thanks Nick for letting us stay in your villa and thank your wife for all her hard work and making us welcome when we arrived.

Hi Nick & Gill

 

Just a quick email to say thanks for allowing us to stay in your villa. Apart from an issue with the A/C when we arrived, which

was solved by a phone call to Harry, we really enjoyed our stay.

Here is a review which we are happy for you to put onto your website.

We found Disney Kids Kingdom to be in an ideal location for everything we needed. It is around 10 minutes drive to Animal Kingdom & Highway 192 with all the restaurants & shops you could want is within 5 minutes drive.

It is a spacious home with a nice kitchen area & games room in the villa.

The bedrooms & lounge are also a nice size.

The pool is a good size & the separate hot tub is a bonus (so relaxing after a day in the parks or shopping). There is plenty of pool furniture with a large table & chairs under the lanai & more chairs & loungers on the pool deck.

Although we did not have any children with us, the small play area is a nice touch for the little ones. If we decide to visit the Orlando/Kissimmee area again, we would certainly consider this home for our accommodation.

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home from home.

July 2017 Hi guys

Just wanted to say thank you so much for the rental of Disney Kids Kingdom.  

It was perfect for our family for just over two weeks.

Our family consisted of 4 adults, 1 with restricted mobility, and 2 children aged 11 and 6.  The house was easy for my mother to get about and the children loved it inside and out, especially the pool.  My favourite along with the pool is the air hockey table even though my daughter kept on beating me.  I also liked the fact that there are USB ports in a couple of the plugs which meant we didn’t need an adapter for charging phones or ipads.  The villa provides plenty like tvs, games consoles, dvd players, toys, hairdryers, baby equipment.  

We had booked this holiday to enable my mother to meet cousins in America that she had only ever spoken to on the phone.  Your villa was a great place for them to come and visit for a few hours, enabling them all to talk and look at photos etc.  

Any questions we had were dealt with efficiently.  The area wasn’t too busy which we found great.  




A little background...we started planning this trip to Disney World in February and we searched through numerous listings for vacation rentals in the Orlando area. We rented a villa in the Orlando area several years ago and it was nice but lacking in location. So after a lot of looking we decided on the "Disney Kids Kingdom" vacation rental. I always give honest fair reviews so here is our opinion...

Location: We had no trouble finding the villa with our GPS system. The villa is not far off of 192 and about 10 minutes from Disney World. The area seemed to have numerous vacation home rentals because we noticed most houses had lock boxes near the door. We also noticed the neighbourhood was a ghost town. When we first arrived we only noticed three other cars parked in the driveways of three other homes on a street with probably 25 homes...so a little quiet in the neighbourhood. Overall the location is very good...near Disney World and close to stores/restaurants. A little tip if you are going to Disney World take Funie Steed Road it has little traffic and it's quicker than taking 192 the whole way.

Arrival: We arrived and followed the owner's directions on how to enter the house, we had no issues. The house was cool and welcoming when we arrived. The house looked like the pictures from the owner's website. The house was in good condition, yes some minor carpet stains here and there but its a vacation rental house you will find this at any rental property or hotel.

Living room: The living room had some nice comfortable couches and a chair. It also had a newer flat screen TV that worked well but needs to be properly adjusted for the screen size. The room had easy access to the pool area and numerous widows for a great amount of light during the day.

Kitchen: The kitchen had decent appliances that all worked correctly. The kitchen had a good supply of dishes and utensils but was lacking enough good pots and pans.

Bedrooms: The bedrooms were all nice. The Disney room had plenty of toys and fun things to play with. The master bedrooms were both nice but could had used king sized beds, the norm for master bedrooms in the us. The queen beds didn't give enough space when you are use to a king. The master bathrooms were both nice and spacious. There were plenty of towels and linens in the rooms.

Pool area: The pool area was nice. The pool was comfortable but a little cold on the two days when it rained. The pool was clean when we arrived but over the week it seemed to pick up a lot of debris. We noticed when the yard maintenance people mowed the yard a lot of debris went into the pool. The yard maintenance crew seems a little messy, they didn't clean up around the pool nor did they clean up in the front of the house, the walkways had a lot of yard debris from them mowing and pruning. We also noticed during the week that the pool screens had some gaps, the top of the screened in area had many gaps allowing debris and a few bugs to get in. The hot tub was excellent and really nice after a day at Disney World. This was another reason why we picked this vacation rental. Most Florida homes have built in pool hot tubs that really don't have good jets...this hot tub being separate from the pool had really good jets and made for a very nice experience. The pool furniture was nice and comfortable. The gas barbecue appeared to have seen better days but was functional. The pool toys were nice and we added some to the collection while we were there. Overall the pool area was as we expected and was nice.

Overall; We had a good stay at a good price. The location is great and the overall feel of the home was very good.

We would recommend and stay at this vacation rental again without hesitation.

"Your vacation home is a wonderful place to spend the week in Florida"

I would like to thank you again for being so accommodating to us for extending our stay for 2 extra days.

Your home exceeds the needs for family and the hot tub (spa) was excellent for several day after playing 18 holes of golf was a real relief to just sit back and soak a while. Thanks again and I will probably be in contact with you for next year stay.

Hi Nick and Gill,

I just wanted to say thank you for letting us stay in your lovely house again. We had a truly wonderful holiday. The pool was fabulous and the girls did a lot of swimming. We all had such a relaxing time. The girls loved the selection of toys and especially all the children’s books in the kids’ bedroom.

Hopefully we will be back next year.

hi Nick,

We just returned from a FABULOUS time in Florida, and much of the credit goes to your villa.  We were extremely satisfied with everything it had to offer and would definitely come back in the future!

On a positive note, your trash collection just started recycling and provided a large bin to go along with the trash bin.  They did however change the pickup days, which are no longer accurate to the information given in the villa and the signs posted.  I believe it's now Monday and Thursday, but not totally sure.

Once again, thanks for a fabulous time!

Sincerely,

Corey, Marie, Sam, and Elizabeth

Kind regards Helen,


 


 


Hello Nick,

       Very much enjoying your home here in Florida.    We leave for home on Tuesday morning early. I really hate looking forward to that long drive. ( took 22 hours and that was in good driving weather) I understand that they are getting over 10 inches of snow at home tonight.   It will be hard going back to that after the warm Florida weather and shorts and sandals. Tomorrow we are going to Magic Kingdom. We have been on the go every day and really tired. Your home has made it much easier for us all. This morning we slept in as we stayed out until after the New Year last night for fire works.   Do I need to call the service here in Florida to have them check over the house or do they just do it and let you know all is good?    Will you then be mailing back the deposit or how does that work?   Thank you for everything. I will surely recommend to anyone I know coming down here to check out your home on line.   My best to you and your family!    Happy New Year!

Sincerely,

Cheryl

Hi Nick,

 

I just wanted to say thank you for letting us stay in your lovely villa. The kids had a truly fabulous time. They are aged 5 and 2 (almost 3) and there were so many toys for them to play with it was like Christmas.

 

We loved your swing set and the wonderful pool. This was the 5th Lindfields villa we have stayed at and it was by far the nicest. We really appreciated all of your upgrades. We hope to be back later in the year!

 

Thanks again.  Kind regards

Nick & Gill,

Thanks so much for allowing us to stay in your villa.  We had a great time.  The kids especially loved the toy room and the bunk beds.


The hot tub felt excellent after a long day at the parks.  It was super convenient to everything we needed and easy to get to.


The fresh fruit tree in the back was a neat feature.  This house had everything we needed.


We greatly appreciate your generosity and how easy it was to use VRBO.  

We will be back!

Hi Nick


Just back and had a great time. The villa was lovely and served our needs perfectly. My granddaughter loved her room and is


still talking about it. The pool was well used after a hot and sticky day at the parks. We double checked to make sure we did not bring


anything away with us and left you a few new toys. Our suitcases were a little over the limit but our flight was delayed 15 hours so they


did not weigh anything!. We flew with Globespan who were very poor (not just because of the delay) but did not impact on the holiday.


Many thanks for letting us stay in your lovely villa.   Steve.

Hiya Nick


I just wanted to say a huge thank you for letting us stay at your villa last week.  We had such a fabulous time and the Villa was so much better than we had imagined! It was so incredibly hot out there and the pool and hot tub came into such great use ... I'm sure the neighbours must have thought we were mad jumping in the pool so early/late! If we're fortunate enough to go back to Orlando we will definitely be looking to see if your Villa is free again and I definitely will be passing on your details if there is anyone that I know is looking at going over.


everything was perfect. Thank you so much for helping to make my 40th birthday so wonderful and memorable!  If there is anything you need from me please do just let me know.


 Anne


==========================================================


Hello,


We've had such a wonderful stay here in Florida and your home is by far the best we've stayed at.  (Yours is the fifth house so far over the years.)


We never can seem to get the same house again when we plan our next vacation because it is already booked or has changed owners.  Anyway....we don't want to leave so we were wondering if you were selling any time soon. Just kidding!!!

The reason for my email is that we wanted to confirm the day of departure because I was confused back when we booked the house.  When do we have to be out of here? I put on the booking form July 11, 2008 but did not want to be surprised by the management company ready to clean on


Well, we are off to Wet and Wild for the day. Thank you again.  Have a great day!

      Bill and Linda Begley

        Hello Nick and Gill

 

had an absolutely fabulous time in your villa.

 

We thank you very much for allowing us to be in your home, it is beautiful. We had everything we could possibly need, in beautiful setting.  We all loved having the pool and hot tub to use, especially after a long hard day in the parks.  Just to let you know that the key for the kitchen cupboard was actually in the kitchen cupboard door when we got here. Put it back where you told me to find it. We would happily recommend your villa to anyone. It was lovely to have the freedom of being in a home, rather than a hotel. Kind regards, Elaine Allatt and family.


 


Nick,


 We finally got to the villa yesterday afternoon Everything is great! I have vacationed all over the US.


This is one of the best rental properties ever. The kids love the pool. Wife loves the hot tub. And I love the extra space and TV's.


 Thanks for everything,


Jeff


Just wanted to send a note to let you know we greatly enjoyed the home.  Disney, Sea world, etc. were fun, but I enjoyed relaxing at the house with the pool and hot tub more than anything else.  If we hear of anyone going to Orlando , we will recommend your place. Also wanted to let you know that the shower curtain in the bathroom by the Disney Room broke while we were there. I went to the store and bought a tension rod and put it up.  I also replace a couple of landscape light bulbs that had burned out.


By mistake we brought an alarm clock from the first master bedroom home with us because we thought it was ours.  I will mail it back to the Primrose address unless I hear different from you. Again, we enjoyed the home and our stay in Orlando .Thanks, Steve Miller

Hi nick


just a quick note, the villa is absolutely fantastic, we have previously stayed in 4 villas on holiday's in the past


and it is by far the best villa we have stayed in, it is obvious from the moment that you walk through the door that the


villa has everything you could ask for and more ! with a high level of comfort. only one small thing, one of the pool lounges was broken (wont allow you to sit upright) I have let the people from Alexander know all in all we are very pleased that we booked your villa.  Kind regards    Keith Goodwin

Hi Nick,


   Just a short note to let you know we had the best holiday ever and that we didn't want to leave your villa to come home.


Fiona had a tear in her eye when we left and Brandon our son just loved the pool. We're looking at coming back in 2 years


with friends, once we get the dates sorted out I'll probably drop you a note.     Regards Craig & Fiona Hay

Good morning Nik

Just home!  We had a lovely time thank you. The villa is absolutely lovely,

and was like a home from home for us.  My niece loved the Disney Room, and spent a couple of

evenings doing the jigsaw puzzles provided. We loved it so much, that my parents, bought a villa

in the Lindfields estate, while we were there - near the entrance of the estate - Sunset Villas!  We will

therefore become regular visitors I believe! We left the key in the villa on the dining room table.

Kind regards

G'day Nick and Gill from the coolish climes of Canada!  I was one of the party, belonging to Chris/Kelly Howard (the mom of Chris)


who spent an amazing week at your villa.  The weather was continuously glorious the whole week (quite an unusual occurrence while Kelly is on vacation - usually rains every single day that she is away from home!).  Your house is very inviting to all those who visit the sunshine state of Florida...with the  Olympic games in full flight - with television sets in all the rooms - we were able to choose our main viewing (thank you!)...did have to go on to the computer every few hours to see how the Canadian teams were doing, and I wish to thank you for that feature as well.  Extremely beneficial in tracking down how other countries were 'faring' other than the US teams!  So, thank you - muchly appreciated.  Christopher and I did take a lot of 'heat' about the men's Canadian ice hockey team being ousted by the Russians...Read several of the comments in the sign-in booklet and Kelly added her thanks only to the growing list of people who stay in your villa.


 We had not computer problems, no housekeeping problems, nor pool/spa problems.  Do appreciate the extra 'items' kept in the larder and we added our few as well.


 The temperatures were unbelievably grand - between 26C-30C every day - and the sun shone with no humidity.  As we were leaving at 5:30 on the Thurs morning - the temp had already reached 18C.  Again, I just want to thank you for allowing visitors to book into your 'space'.  With 2 children (19 months/3 years) it is the perfect setting.


 Continued success,      Brenda Howard


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Nick,


Just Wanted to say a quick "thanks" for the use of your Villa. It is very nice, and it is likely that we will book it again in the future


(assuming you will have us back!).    And, by the way, the hot tub was outstanding.


 

 


We stayed in the villa I can honestly say without doubt, it is the best holiday


we have ever had. The villa is absolutely stunning, we have never stayed anywhere that has the same amenities and facilities.


We took our 4 daughters with us with ages ranging from 5 to 18, there was always something for them all to do.

Nick & Gill - Thanks for the use of your villa!   The Reids from Boston, U.K.

We just returned to Nebraska on Monday after spending a week at your

villa.  Our son and daughter-in-law booked it They spent alot of time at Disney with our grandchildren while my husband and I drove to the Gulf and spent a few days there.  I just

wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your home!  It was clean and

so comfortable!  We were very impressed with the layout as Grandma and

Grandpa (we had the "garage" room suite) could have some quiet away from

the adorable, but sometimes noisy, 5 and 2 year old.  The kids loved the

Disney room.  We were very pleasantly surprised at how well stocked the

house was as far as sheets, towels, kitchen linens, dishes, etc.  We

left some non-perishable foods in the larder, along with dish soap, hand

soap, fabric softener, paper towels, Kleenex and toilet paper for your

next guests to use.  I left a pool toy as well, although there were

plenty there.  I am just delighted that my son found your site on the

Web.  The children and adults both loved the pool and the Jacuzzi was

delightful. We certainly hope to return someday.


(Actually, I would just like to move

right in!!)  Thanks again for a fabulous place to stay!

Dear Nick,


                   By now you should have received the returned villa keys, and we would be grateful for the return of the security deposit. Thanks for the use


of your  great holiday home, we have visited Florida many times but have rarely stayed at such a well equipped villa, we had a lovely time.


               Many thanks Margaret & Nigel Kay.    July 2006


 

Dear Nick and Gill


Many apologies for not mailing sooner - we have only just got the kids off Florida time and back to normality so things have been a bit hectic.


 I will be posting the keys back to you in the morning.


Our holiday was fantastic and the villa was just great.  We all agreed it was like borrowing a home rather than renting a villa.


between us all we have travelled a fair bit using all formats - self catering, hotels and villas and from a parental point of view yours was by far the best.


We made full use of the car seat and booster which saved us a couple of hundred dollars and the cot was ideal.  We could sleep at night not worrying


if our about to be two year old would be wandering the villa.  They were entertained by the books and toys and the jigsaws were loved by the 4 year old


 and ideal to calm him down after a day at the parks and an evening in the pool.  Speaking of which some days the kids preferred to stay at the pool


and their confidence in the water grew by day.


The cupboard is also a great idea.  Our bags went missing on the flight and we had nothing for the first day and what a relief to open up the


cupboard and find we did not need to rush out and buy toiletries and sunscreen for the kids which would have been expensive and frustrating


considering we knew they were in the cases.  There is not a single thing we can say to fault it and nothing done to improve it - and if there was something we wanted/needed that wasn't there it was simple - we just bought it!  After all you wouldn't even get a fraction of that stuff at a hotel or a managed villa rental.  Also added bonus of your super quick response to any queries overnight by email was reassuring. So thank you for allowing us to share your home for a time and we definitely want to come back in a couple of years so will keep your email safe till then.


 Kind regards Jamie, Maree, Coll and Caitlin Anderson And  Jim and Dolina Cremin ( always take the grandparents - very handy on holiday!!)          


Hi Nick we arrived home safe and sound on Friday morning. We had delays but that was expected with all of the extra security checks. We had a great visit to the US and was very lucky with the weather. We saw no rain in Atlanta but it was a little too hot reaching the 100's most days. Great city though. We carried on to Alabama and then onto the Pan Handle of Florida. We have only every been to Orlando and the Florida Keys so it was nice to see a different side to America. We travelled along the pan handle to Tallahassee and then onto your home in Orlando. WOW I want a hot tub now. We had a great time in very clean, comfortable and spacious surroundings.


It was a real bonus to have things like kettles, I think you have all put alot of thought into your home. We have always used VRBO on our trips to the US and never been disappointed but yours is one of the higher standards. We saw our first rain in Orlando but that was only 10 minutes at Universal and one afternoon when we were shopping. We travelled on down to Cape Coral and hired a villa off VRBO but it came with a boat, excellent fun! We had 2 afternoons of rain so were extremely lucky with the weather as the poor people before us had had 10 days of rain. Many thanks for opening up your home to us we had a ball!
