So why book your villa?
aside from renting our villa we also use it as our vacation home too, and so unlike many other villas you will see which are never used or cared for by their owners we invest time and effort into ensuring our property is presented to the very best standard with the best facilities. So before booking your vacation at another villa please consider these points first: Our villa is located on Tuscan Ridge which is one the best maintained and most sort after subdivisions (resorts) for villa rentals in the Disney area. We manage all of our bookings personally giving you an individual service matched to your requirements and are happy to answer any query you might have about the villa or Florida, from our near 20 years experience of traveling across the USA. If you book through a large rental or package holiday company their staff do not have the time or knowledge to offer this service. If you book a villa through a vacation or package tour operator your accommodation is normally allocated on arrival so you could be placed in a property anywhere in the Orlando area with no guarantee that it will be close to the attractions or that you will be staying at a fabulous villa like ours The photographs shown on this web site are only of our villa and were all taken by us, some other villas advertised on the internet can have photographs of the property from when it was new or even generic photographs of another villa all together. We only rent our villa to private individuals and never to holiday or rental companies and by doing so it enables us not only to maintain the property to a very high standard but also offer the best rates by booking directly with us.
