This is a superbly appointed villa in a safe residential area just 25 minutes from Orlando airport, with features you'd expect for your vacation home in Central Florida. Everything you need is included, i.e. bedding, linen, towels, ironing board, hairdryer, phone with free local phone calls, top quality kitchen appliances and more. We think you'll like our tastefully furnished and decorated villa which is in typical Floridian style for your comfort and enjoyment.
For easy wheelchair access, the double entrance doors can be fully opened if required and once you're inside, the rooms are all light and airy thanks to the tall vaulted ceilings. On your arrival, there's no need to go chasing around to property management offices after a long flight or drive as there's an electronic combination lock to get you in at your convenience in case you're arriving late, so you can get settled sooner and start to relax after your journey.
Patio doors from the family/TV lounge lead out to the west-facing, screened and optionally heated swimming pool surrounded by an extended pool deck. These doors also have a pool alarm fitted with safety in mind for young children possibly wandering out un-noticed to the pool.
A west-facing pool means you can enjoy the sun until it sets in our top quality patio furniture and you can really relax and soak up the sun with a cool drink while the kids play in the pool. When the sun has gone down, there's no need to stop using the pool as you can simply switch on the deck and underwater lights and carry on with the fun.
Before heading off to the parks, why not enjoy breakfast together around the family-sized dining table or in the breakfast nook and when you've finished with the pool for the day, there are two separate lounges in which to relax. One near the dining area and the other near the pool which has the cable TV and entertainment centre in it.
This also houses a VCR and Sony PlayStation 2 with DVD and CD playback facility. We have also left some video and DVD films, PS2 game and a board game for you and more can be rented locally. This lounge also has a queen-size pull-out sofa if you have the maximum of ten guests in your party.
The large kitchen has a clear view of the pool and is fully equipped to include a dishwasher, fridge-freezer with icemaker, waste disposal, full oven and hob/range, microwave, coffee maker, blender, breakfast nook with table and chairs and there is a separate washer and dryer housed in the large double garage. Most people don't use the kitchen much and tend to eat out but everything is there if you need it.
When the day is done, the master bedroom has a comfortable queen-size bed, alarm clock, cable TV, VCR and walk-in closet. It adjoins the master bathroom which is detailed below. The second bedroom has a double bed and the third and fourth bedrooms have twin beds in each with the family bathroom between them. All rooms have ample closet space.
There are two fully-tiled bathrooms, one ensuite to the master bedroom and an additional family bathroom. The ensuite has washbasin, toilet, Roman tub and separate shower with a door leading directly on to the pool deck. The family bathroom has a vanity unit with washbasin, toilet, full-size bath and a shower over it. The Roman tub is a great place to unwind after a hard day's theme park enjoyment or seeing the local attractions.
Florida Pines is surrounded by a pine forest and with construction finished in 2003, it has matured into a lovely and extremely well-kept community. There are shops, supermarkets, restaurants and banks within a few minutes drive of the villa and the same is true for the good road links of US Hwy 27, the 192 and InterState 4.
Our property managers offices are close to the villa and they are there to help you with any problems you may have with the home. They can also arrange car hire, golf packages, etc. if required and advise on sight-seeing and any local information you may need. We want you to have a great stay in the Sunshine State and these trusted professionals have given us years of excellent service
THINGS TO DO....THE MAIN REASONS TO VISIT CENTRAL FLORIDA
One of the greatest tourist attractions of Florida has always been its variety of entertainment for families and people of all ages and as nice as our home is, at the end of the day you won't have travelled all those miles to get to Florida, simply to stay around the villa and most people only use it as a base. The main reason people come to Central Florida is for fun, fun and more fun so here's just a few of the things you can do while you're here:
Disneyworld and all the different Disney parks
Kennedy Space Center, Cocoa Beach and the Space Coast
St Petersburg, Clearwater and the Gulf Coast
Chamionshop golf courses (over 200 around Orlando)
Kissimmee Old Town
Islands of Adventure
Ripley's 'Believe It Or Not'
Billie Swamp Safari
The Everglades and alligator spotting
Apart from being renowned for the world-famous Disneyworld and other major attractions, Florida also has many other sides to it. For instance, practically any sport you can think of can be done in Florida and there are literally hundreds of golf courses around Orlando. Try Greg Norman's 36-hole course at Champion's Gate just 8 minutes away or a short 5-minute drive will take you to Highlands Reserve. One of my personal favourites that won't cost you an arm and a leg is the Swiss Fairways course at Clermont which is about 15 miles north on Hwy 27.
For other trips out, Kennedy Space Centre and Cocoa Beach are 50 minutes to the east whereas a leisurely hour's drive westwards will bring you to St Pete's, Tampa and the beautiful scenery around Clearwater. Orlando airport is about 25 minutes drive from the villa and Sandford is some 50-60 minutes away.
There are literally hundreds of theme restaurants and bars along Hwy 192 which starts just a 5-minute drive away and stretches for miles. People from all over the world love to visit Florida for these attractions and enjoy the warm sunshine. You'll love staying in our luxurious villa and enjoying the private pool after a hard day at the parks. Why not make your reservation today?
