Amazing villa- amazing honeymoon

Amazing Villa - Amazing Honeymoon!! Left on Sep 21, 2016 for a stay in Sep 2016 We used the villa for 2 weeks in September for our Honeymoon and was visiting all the Disney/Universal parks! In the lead up Sara and Pete were so helpful in the booking of the villa and staying in touch about any updates they had made and even offering to change the dates of our booking if the flights were cheaper on different days! When we arrived at the villa it was everything we wanted and more! We had a bit of trouble locating the key but we were both tired and too excited to think logically i think! The villa itself was so clean and tidy and HUGE! There was only 2 of us so we had a lot of space! The games room was lovely to chill out in of an evening and the pool was amazing! Just what we needed after a hot day at the parks! We loved seeing all the lizards around and we had a frog on the front window everynight we got home - we named him Lenny! Also saw a family of raccoons on the last day! All in all was a fantastic 2 weeks, we felt so at home and would love to stay again in the future! Thanks Sara and Pete!!

Beautiful spacious villa in fantastic location

We\'ve just returned from our fabulous two week stay at this stunning villa. We were two families, so 8 people in total but we never felt like there was not enough space. The rooms are laid out in such a way that the two double, single-bed rooms are partitioned off allowing for complete privacy. The kitchen has beautiful granite work tops and every appliance you could need. Most importantly there was a coffee machine! The fridge and freezer are huge as you\'d expect, with chilled water and ice dispenser. The photos really don\'t do the villa justice in terms of how much space there is, the main living area, which is partitioned off by archways and small dividing walls, is a lovely space with double height ceilings. Wooden floors throughout help keep the place cool as do the ceiling fans in each room and of course the air conditioning. There is ample bedding, pillows and towels supplied, all beautifully soft. The furniture is extremely comfy. The games room and pool were probably the two most popular areas of the house, especially with the children. A word about the location. All the major attractions at Disney, Sea World, Aquatica, Universal etc. are basically 30 minutes away. So don\'t think that you are in the middle of nowhere. There are Publix supermarkets all over the place, the nearest one being 3 miles away, so stocking up the fridge is easy. The new BBQ decking area is lovely and the BBQ itself is a twin gas beast which did steaks beautifully! A couple of family style restaurants I would recommend are Uno Chicago Grill and Longhorn Steak house, they\'re both opposite each other on Bronson Memorial Highway (192). The steaks and burgers at Longhorn are delicious as was the cinnamon doughnut dessert! The deep dish Chicago style pizzas at Uno\'s are amazing also. All in all I can\'t recommend this villa highly enough. Sara (the owner) was so helpful throughout the entire process, always available for advice. If you are travelling with children because of the summer holidays I would strongly recommend coming in the last two weeks in August. The schools in the southern states have already gone back to school by then and we found that the parks were much quieter. In the whole two weeks the longest queue was 30 mins. Use the fastpass to your advantage in Disney.

Home from home villa

Home from home villa that ticks all the boxes! Left on Jul 26, 2016 for a stay in Jul 2016 My family and I have stayed in numerous villas in Florida but this one is by far the best. It has everything you need; space, pool, air conditioning, games room, privacy to list but a few. Sara (the owner) was helpful, accommodating and a genuinely lovely person who made the booking process, correspondence and our stay perfect

Guest: James & Jamie | Visited: July from Ireland


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

Michelle from Dundee Fabulous, warm and welcoming Left on May 9, 2016 for a stay in Apr 2016 We had a wonderful stay at Evans Way Villa. The villa is well equipped, has everything you think you may need. Having the air conditioned games room was a lovely bonus. The pool is lovely and secluded. The location of the villa is convenient for travel to the main theme parks, but far enough away that you can relax without hearing any hussle & bustle. We had reason to change our accommodation plans and Sara, the owner, was very helpful and able to accommodate our request to stay longer, which was really appreciated. I wouldn\'t hesitate in recommending this villa to anyone looking for a good quality accommodation in Florida. Looking forward to going back as soon as possible



Lovely property. Really enjoyed our stay. Left on Apr 15, 2016 for a stay in Mar 2016 I would highly recommend this villa. It was nicely decorated and very clean. The air conditioning and fans kept it nice and cool as well as a dip in the pool which was a really nice size. I found the property very well equipt and the addition of a games room was nice. The kids loved playing pool and table football. It was good that it was only a short drive to Disney but was far enough to be away from the busyness of Disney. The owners are very nice people and were very helpful throughout the booking and stay. I would highly recommend renting one of the villas they own. I certainly will for our next Disney holiday in a couple of years.

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 Stayed in both of Sara and Peter\'s villas from 29th February to 19th March 2016. They are both spotlessly clean and the décor and furnishings are first class. Again, Evans Way villa is ideally suited to families visiting the theme parks.

Guest: Angela | Visited: March 2016 stayed at both villas


Excellent Left on Jan 8, 2016 for a stay in Dec 2015 We spent Christmas and New Year, in this lovely Villa my Grandchildern said that they enjoyed the games room and swimming pool. We found that it was lovely and peaceful, which was what you needed after you had been to the parks all day, as all you wanted to do was relax. The villa was very clean and had everything that you needed to make a perfect holiday. I would recommended this villa and I would be very happy to rent this villa again.

Fabulous Villa, great pool & games room! Left on Nov 17, 2015 for a stay in Oct 2015 We added a stay at this fabulous villa in Kissimmee for 10 days following a few days in a hotel, my friend and her teenage son flew out to join us. I am normally a hotel dweller but chose this villa after extensive research online, many of the villas I saw were less spacious with very little privacy. Doral woods met our needs in every way, the villa is very spacious, well equipped, exceptionally clean with a fantastic games room & pool, handy for a 16 year old as well as the adults! The villa is well located for Disney, a maximum 30 minute drive from Universal Studios and the surrounding buzz, we changed our days around having mornings at the villa & pool, travelling to the parks or shopping & eating later to make the most of the day. The villa owners were fantastic, very responsive in our email exchanges, lots of helpful information & very easy to deal with. Sara made the process hassle free, if I were returning to this area we would definitely stay here again.

Immaculate villa with great pool

The villa is immaculate inside and out. We really liked the wooden flooring in the villa. All the rooms were spacious and the bathrooms were clean. The air conditioned games room was great and the pool area was private, which is very rare for a villa in the Kissimmee area. We will certainly look to come back in the future.

Guest: Stephen carson from UK | Visited: September 2015


We have stayed at this villa on many occasions as we think that it is the best location for a perfect holiday, close enough for the attractions and peace & quiet when you want it. The villa has everything you need and is spotlessly clean and tidy. We were lucky enough to meet the owners this time as they were in the other villa just around the corner. We would recommend this to anyone looking for the best way to enjoy Florida and all it has to offer. A short drive from the restaurants and attractions and if you don\'t want to go out there is everything you need to just relax and enjoy the sunshine.

Guest: David & family from London UK | Visited: 16th July 2016


The villa itself lived up to our expectations and more, set in a very quiet area with the pool area much more private than most. We visited parks most days which are all easily accessible along with, supermarkets, petrol stations and restaurants with the 192 just a 10 minute drive away. The villa was very clean, well laid out and spacious with everything you need. The games room is another big plus point with everything well maintained and set out nicely for a different option at evenings. The pool area has ample space and is a really relaxing place to be after a long day, we spent most of our time when we were at the villa out there day or night. The old town Kissimmee was our favourite place to go for food or drink in the evening especially on a Thursday and Saturday as they have motorbike and classic car parades etc. Overall it was a great place and would stay again any time, the owners are really good to deal with and very helpful so if you are thinking of this villa you won\'t be disappointed

Beautiful and peaceful

Arriving at the villa tired n hot, but when we opened the front door we loved it, it was perfect and the kids loved the games room and swimming pool.the photos really don\'t do it justice,it was home from home.The owners Sara and Peter really have thought of everything,from a safe for your valuables to a bbq and more! We would most definitely recommend this villa to anyone thinking of visiting florida! We spent 18 days here,14 days visiting the parks and the other days chilling as you need to throw in a few rest days to recharge your batteries. we could have easily stayed for more,we really didn\'t want to come home,the holiday from start to finish was brilliant.It was worth the wait,planning and money and we are hoping to return at some point. The villa is on a quiet estate away from any noise but close enough by car to all the theme parks.(would recommend taking a satnav if its your first time like ours!!). We did all the Disney parks, seaworld, aquatica, universal, island of adventure and busch garden(which was our favourite park)and the boggy creek airboat ride which was really worth while doing and not to far from the villa.we all got to hold a baby alligator which was amazing! if you want a good meal and love steak you must visit Long horn steakhouse(not lone star)on 8388 vineland ave,there are 2 long horn steakhouses but this one is the best! If your planning to go to a waterpark Aquatica was really good,clean and not to busy with plenty of sunbeds and lots of rides to go on. Thank you for a Fantastic holiday and lots of great memories.... Aidan,lyndsay and family

Large home very private pool

We had a wonderful stay in Sara and Pete\'s home. It\'s a lovely large home that is well equipped. You can enjoy your time by the very private pool, or playing games in the air conditioned games room. Sara was wonderful to work with and we would definitely rent the home again

Guest: Donna &family from Canada | Visited: 3 weeks March 2015

Great home great stay !!!

My wife and I have been renting villas in this area for years and can honestly say this villa surpasses them all! Everything on this website about this villa is true and accurate. Very spacious and clean. The pool is great and the game room is a neat addition. The location is great away from the hustle and bustle of some areas yet close enough (15-30 minutes) to all the attractions. Sara the owner who I dealt with is fantastic! Any problems that pop up, she makes sure they are taken care of. I would definitely recommend this villa and have done so and wouldn\'t stay anyplace else when I come back to this area we stayed 2 months as last year

Guest: William Hurt & family from Chicago USA | Visited: All January /February 2015

Fantastic Location !!

Date of Stay 18 December 2014 Christmas stay Situated in a quiet lovely area with only a short drive to all attractions this villa really was a home from home. All needs were taken care of in regards to utensils entertainment comfort and a lovely pool, would definitely recommend as our stay was fantastic. Thankyou Sara for everything!

Guest: Joseph & family UK | Visited: 18th December Christmas 2014

Perfect stay !!!

Date of Stay 18 December 2014 Christmas The villa is very spacious has everything you could possibly need and more. It is ideally situated around half an hours drive to all the parks or from the parks a half an hours drive to peace quiet and tranquility! The villa is on the same footprint as many other villas locally but situated in a much prettier surrounding area. Would recommend the place to anyone wishing to visit this particular area. The owner Sara was very helpful and great to deal with providing every form of information needed to have a great holiday. Have a nice day!!!

Guest: steve & family UK | Visited: 18th December Christmas


This villa is exactly how it\'s described, spotlessly clean & tidy. Doral Woods is very peaceful but with just a short drive you have all the resturants and theme parks, great pool and sun deck with enough room for everyone & what a bonus the games room was. Hopefully be back soon. Thank you Sara&Peter for the use of your villa hope to be back soon

Guest: Dave Foster & Family | Visited: November 2014


Great property in stunning fit and finish. This was a pleasure from start to finish. The over size pool was the icing on a large Florida sized cake! I would certainly stay here again, though I think I\'d like to try their other property which looks every bit as good. I thoroughly recommend this property.

Guest: mike & family | Visited: 22nd to 29th October 2014


Staying here was a dream come true because it was relaxing, beautiful and comfy too! Isn't that what we all want from a vacation? :-) The house was spacious, beautifully furnished, and equipped like a home away from home. From the swimming pool to the pool table in the game room - the kids loved it all! It was just an awesome time and we're looking forward to coming back soon. We also had the pleasure of meeting Sara and her husband and they were very helpful and kind.

Guest: Horsey family Maryland | Visited: 5/12 August 2014


FANTASTIC!! Fantastic villa in a beautiful, quiet location-Doral Woods. Everything we could have wished for and more with the villa. Our boys loved the pool and the games room, wish we could have them both at our home!. The villa has everything you need and it is immaculate. Sara the owner has been brilliant, can't thank her enough. If we return we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Catriona Westwell FROM UK

Guest: WESTWELL FAMILY | Visited: 13TH AUGUST 2014


We cant recommend this villa highly enough. The accommodation is stylish yet comfortable and homely, plus spotlessly clean ! Only half an hour travelling into the Disney parks so the perfect base from which to explore Orlando and other attractions. Celebration village is a must. Sara was on holiday in Florida at the time and therefore was our point of contact during the stay should we need anything. She was a fantastic help with local hints and tips, and looking after things. We will definitely be back !

Guest: Emma & family Halifax UK | Visited: July 2014


The house was perfect for our 2-family trip with plenty of room to spare. We enjoyed the game room, pool, and comfortable beds. The location was great for all of the attractions we wanted easy access to. The house was clean and well stocked with dishes, towels, sheets, pretty much anything one might need. I would recommend this property to anyone headed to Orlando/Kissimmee area. It was so nice after a busy day to come back to this quiet little neighborhood and soak our sore bodies in the pool. The home was very close to where we wanted to be and also not far off from all of the Disney Parks and Islands of Adventure at Universal Studios. Our families had an amazing time and would highly recommend this Villa to anyone.

Very nice tranquil villa, set against a backdrop of woods, nice peaceful area, excellent villa with all that you would require for a relaxing holiday

Guest: DAVID FROM UK | Visited: JUNE 2014


Good quality accommodation in a nice quiet location. The owner is very helpful and accommodating. We particularly liked the private setting and the fact that it is not over looked to the rear. Plenty of wildlife to see and is about the right distance from Orlando for access to its entertainment opportunities, yet not in the midst of the touristy area. Overall it is a well maintained villa and provided a pleasant holiday setting which we would return to without hesitation. Review Submitted: 04-Jun-2014 Date of Stay: May 2014 Source: HomeAway

Guest: Peter Brown | Visited: May 2015 from UK


Date of Stay 09 March 2014 This is a great home for multiple couples and singles or people with kids. It has a really comfortable 1 floor layout with a nice central open area. The neighborhood is residential and quiet. It was very clean. We needed a few things and they were brought over immediately. The pool needed to be a bit warmer and Peter, the owner came right over and fixed that. We were in for a trade show in Orlando and the drive was longer than we hoped, but when we were just at the house it was great. We were able to take evening walks around the block and felt completely safe. Thank you Sarah and Peter for a nice place to stay!

Date of Stay 07 March 2014 There were 7 of us staying for business and a few days of vacation. We had a very enjoyable stay. Sara and Peter were very responsive (just a few hours) when we asked for the pool heater to be turned up and for some sharper knives in the kitchen. Nice quiet neighborhood.

WOW!. 5 out of 5 Review Submitted: 10-Mar-2014 Date of Stay: Jan 2014 We have stayed in Doral Woods about 4 times and this was the best villa by far. Everything was just as pictured in HomeAway and nothing was left out. The house was immaculate and everything was well maintained. We stayed for 2 months and wish we could have stayed longer. The big screen TV was great with lots of channels and both suites also had TV\'s. The pool was great and just right for my wife who loves to swim. We had guests come down a couple of times and they were really impressed and just loved it. It\'s nice and quiet but not far from the hustle and bustle. The owner Sara contacted us several times to make sure everything was working out. I could go on and on about everything but suffice it say that our entire stay was super and we hope to possible stay at Sara\'s again next year

Our family, wife and myself also our daughter, son in law, and two teenage grandchildren have recently returned from from a two week stay over Christmas 2013 in Orlando. In our search for a suitable place for all of us to stay; we were fortunate indeed to come across Sara and Peter Hodgson’s beautiful villa in Doral Woods . From the beginning, Sara could not do enough for us, and was kindness itself, and thoroughly professional; even providing us with groceries, (due to our late evening arrival at Evans Way); including items to cater for our granddaughter’s special dietary needs. The villa exceeded all our expectations, being perfect for our requirements, having everything you might need in a ‘home from home’, and a luxury one at that. The heated pool was amazing, plenty big enough for us all to relax and unwind after all the hustle and bustle of days out at the Disneyland and Universal Parks. The villa was fully air conditioned and very comfortable with wi-fi and tv’s in both main bedrooms and lounge; there were plenty of towels for bathroom and swimming, it being unnecessary to bring your own, as we found out after our arrival. The villa was spotlessly clean, and if we had encountered any problems we had all the details of Sara’s Property Manager to assist us straight away. Should we in the future return to Orlando we would not consider staying anywhere else. A great time was had by one and all. We would not hesitate in recommending Sara and Peter and the villa giving them all 5 stars

Beautiful villa quiet location

Beautiful villa in a quiet location 5 out of 5 Review Submitted: 23-Aug-2013 Date of Stay: Aug 2013 The Page Family - West Midlands, England. We stayed at this villa between the 7th and 21st August 2013. It is a beautiful, spacious open plan villa on a quiet residential estate, just close enough for a 15 to 20 minute drive to Disney but far enough away to allow relaxed evenings after days out at the manic theme parks. We all really loved the large solar heated pool which was really soothing after our long days out. The photos don't do this villa justice. It has very comfortable furniture, the bedrooms are all spacious with comfortable beds and the new games room is brilliant. The air conditioning throughout was a blessing as we had temperatures in the 90's for most of our holiday. On the days we relaxed at the villa we couldn't get the kids (Age 8 and 11) out of the pool. Sara and Pete (the owners) are a lovely couple and were staying at their other villa around the corner, they were very helpful with every aspect of our booking and any questions we had regarding our holiday. We will definately be back to this villa in the future, hopefully for 3 weeks or more as 2 weeks just isn't long enough. Thanks again for all your help with a wonderful holiday. Lorna, Andy, Ryan and Amy
