Here is what some of our visitors had to say… guest book entries are shown further down, click image to enlarge, click “back” to return.

An on-going communication during their stay:
Part 1/All going well here - weather very hot - 34! 😎 Just a quick question out of curiosity - we did rent a villa from you back in 2011 didn’t we?
Part 2/Hi Colin - mystery solved ! It seems we stayed a few doors away previously! Which was sold in 2015! I think I saw yours and assumed it was one of the same. -anyways we are enjoying our stay - we did have to ask for pool heat to be turned down a tad (it was set at 100!! ) All good now!
Part 3/Hi Colin -  pool heat was fine as far I was concerned but I was out voted by rest of family! lol
Sylvia, Keith and family, 5th October 2017

Thanks for letting us use your beautiful home! I'm just back to work this morning... in snow and cold weather, ouf! And just to let you know that we had a wonderful time at Orlando and in your spacious house. The weather was really good (75'F to 85'F and more in real feel) and the temperature just fell near 35'F the day we left your house... we were lucky! We have left a pretty good note to you on your guest book and left the house really clean. I might contact you at another time to rent your home again. Thanks' a lot!Guy, family and friends, 7th January 2017

We are currently in States; lovely time, thank you. Your villa was very comfortable and very clean.Christopher, Heather and family, 27th November 2016

departure comment: Thank you for letting my wife and I stay in your beautiful villa . We had a wonderful holiday and have recommended your villa to all our friends and family.Robert & Leigh, 15th September 2016

arrival comment: The villa is beautiful , everything inside lovely and clean . Our only disappointment is the pool has not been cleaned and is very grubby around the sides and the floor . Also the outside patio area is dirty. Everything else is undoubtedly excellent just a shame about the pool. (This was an immediate result of Hurricane Hermine passing to the NW with sustained winds of 40mph for almost two days earlier.) MC's report: The villa, pool and pool deck was cleaned the day before the guest arrived and we did a pre- arrival check on Sunday as it had rained all night Saturday. Unfortunately, at the moment, the heavy rain and lightening is relentless at night and as fast as we are cleaning decks they are dirty by the end of the day. (First thing next day, all was spic and span again outside, thanks to our most splendid MC!). next day's comment: Just to let you know , Paul/MC popped into the villa to check out the pool , we told him it was all fine now and had cleaned up lovely . What a nice man, very helpful and professional . He told us some lovely places to visit , a hive of information. We are having a great relaxing time in the villa and will hopefully be coming to stay again.Robert & Leigh, 4th September 2016

Sorry haven't written sooner to thank you for our stay in your beautiful villa, we had a super time which was slightly overshadowed by a horrendous long journey home. (Early onslaught of Hurricane Hermine.)Ali, Mike & girls, 1st September 2016

Just a note to say we had a great holiday and your villa played its part. Because I had been to Tuscan Ridge before I knew what to expect….but the others were blown away by having such a great place to stay with its own pool (needed as the weather was HOT!), and the games room was well used as well. Anyway we now need a holiday to recover from the holiday!Robert and friends, 16th July 2016

I would just like to say how wonderful your villa is and how grateful we are for being able to hire it from you and hopefully look forward to being able to hire it again in 2018....(This was their second stay in twelve months.)Paul & Lorraine, 16th May 2016

Thank you again for letting us stay at the Villa we all enjoyed ourselves and were very comfortable.Richard, Zoe, Ella and friends, 28th April 2016

Once again we have had a wonderful stay in your Florida villa. The place was immaculate, well stocked and so comfortable. If we come to Florida again we will definitely be in touch to see if you have a vacancy as we very much enjoyed staying at your home. We would be pleased to refer to any of our friends as well.Wayne & Barb, 23rd March 2016

Would like to say how much me and my family enjoyed our stay in your Villa over Christmas and new year. It was perfect. So much so that we would like to book again for Christmas 2017.Darren & Julie and family, 2nd January 2016

After another wonderful stay at your villa - we are hoping to book for our next Disney holiday. (Now booked 2017)Lauren and family, 18th October 2015

Just a quick note to say your villa was beautiful and we had a wonderful time. We will book again very soonBrandi, Jonathan, Daniel & Jack, 6th September 2015

Pt.1/ Just to say we have arrived and the villa is perfect , many thanks.             Pt.2/ Thank you so much for the letter we received from you last week and the cheque.  We were not expecting the extra back , the spa issue in no way spoiled our holiday as you were so prompt to sort it out, for which we were very grateful.  It was also good to chat to Paul (MC) who was very pleasant and told us about some other places to visit whilst we were there.  Your villa is lovely and we had a great time, such that we would like to visit again.  I’ve attached the booking form from your website.  I appreciate the dates are a little in advance but I expect with such a nice villa you get booked up very quickly and these dates work with our children’s school holidays.  I haven’t stated how much deposit as I’m not sure if this will change from your current prices.  If it is OK to go ahead and reserve these dates (including both spa and pool heating this time) please let me know how much deposit you require - the dates may change slightly but will confirm in due course and at the moment it is just the 4 of us again but with the extra room at the villa, some friends may wish to join us .  Thank you again for providing us with such a great holiday, the villa was in a great location , very clean and spacious and hopefully, going at Easter next time it will be just as warm but with fewer thunder storms !!Samantha, Christopher, Hanna & Jack, 19th August 2015

On a happier note we had a great holiday in spite of the downturn in the weather (Flooding in Tampa, Busch Gardens closed). I was planning to mail you but work is a nightmare and I did not get round to it. Your house was in immaculate condition when we arrived, my wife commented that she has never seen a house presented in such a clean state, every surface clean and polished, bed linen white and crisp, the house was furnished with everything we could desire but more importantly from the moment we entered it felt welcoming and comfortable and certainly enhanced our holiday experience. Once again, apologies for the damage and the lack of communication to your MC, hopefully we will be returning to Florida in 2017, we would look to rebook with you if our plans work out.Paul, Linda, David and Sophie, 6th August 2015

I wanted to thank you both for allowing us to enjoy your fantastic villa. We all had a great time enjoying all that Florida had to offer and relaxing by the pool. Paul and Brenda were a great help with alternative places to visit away from the Parks. Manny's was a meat feast treat! We hope to visit again in the future and will recommend your villa.Jonathan, Grace, Ciara & Erin, 15th July 2015

I'd just like to thank you for allowing us to rent your wonderful Florida Villa. Although there was a minor problem when we arrived, the management team did a wonderful job and our  holiday was in no way affected. The villa was great, the management team great and the weather was the usual for Florida. When we left the villa was in good condition, so I presume the report from management company was ok and my deposit will be returned. Again thanks for the villa, if we return to Orlando we will certainly check with you to see if your villa is available.Eric & Sheila and Neil & Rita, 7th June 2015

I would really like to say Thank you very much for letting us use your fantastic villa – It really was lovely and stunning in every way and easily located to the main areas – Everything was superb – I have received your cheque back for the deposit (Thank you again) However we really would like to come back to your lovely villa next year so if you have the availability......Paul & Lorraine, 3rd May 2015

we had a great time and the villa was wonderful, just what was required.Robert and Golfing Friends, 3rd February 2015

Hello, we had a fabulous holiday in Florida and trust that you received feedback that all was well when we left the villa.Hegarty & Chamberlain Family, 9th May 2014

We had a wonderful time during our holiday.    Glen, Natalie & Carter, 16th March 2014

Thank you very much for the kind loan of the villa.  We had a lovely holiday with lots of happy memories and were really pleased with where it was located.Karen, Richard, Katie & Isabelle, 22nd February 2014

We greatly enjoyed staying at your house in Florida!The Dirks, 20th July 2013

Thank you for a great holiday in your villa, it really did feel comfortable and relaxed.Christine and Gary, 24th June 2013

Just wanted to thank you for letting us rent your beautiful home. Had a very enjoyable time and of course, the time has just flown by on vacation. Chatted with Paul, your property manager a couple of times and he seems like a great guy. He mentioned I should ask you about your solar heat for the pool as I am interested in putting in a similar system back at my house in Canada. Any details you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Had a great time and no mishaps of any kind. House is in great shape for your next renters. Thanks again and who knows, we might be in touch to come back again next year if u will have us again!Bob & Kelly, 28th February 2013

Pt.1: It has been manic at work right up until we left. But thank you for all the valuable information you sent it really did help us a lot. And you have an absolutely wonderful place here. We are all excited and looking forward to our holiday now. Take care and I will drop you a line when we return. Pt.2: Just to let you know we are all back (home) safe and sound. What a lovely place you have – thank you for everything and making the holiday that extra bit special. We did everything we wanted to do this time but left a little bit for the next time. And there will be no hesitation in giving you a call to make a booking. Most definitely that we would want to come back. We had one rain day but the girls spent it in the pool. It was still low 90s. We had a great time thank you. Thanks again – we really did appreciate all your help and information.Gary and Family, 2nd September 2012

It has been manic at work right up until we left, but thank you for all the valuable information you sent it really did help us a lot. And you have an absolutely wonderful place here. We are all excited and looking forward to our holiday now. Take care and I will drop you a line when we return. (Sent on their arrival at the villa.)Gary, Nicky, Carly, Chloe & Casey, 21st August 2012

Things have been hectic since returning from Florida but I must say we had a great time in your house and a great holiday overall.Steve and Family, 28th July 2012

Just wanted to say thank you very much for letting us stay in your villa again, we both had a really great time,….Look forward to booking with you again in the future, both the villa and setting are just perfectMandy & Colin, 31st May 2012

We would like to thank you again and say that we enjoyed our stay at your villa for a second time and wouldn't hesitate to book again!Tom & Lesley, 30th March 2012

Thank you for the use of your lovely villa. It had everything we needed and I loved being there. We were able to make good use of the pool, even swimming one night in the pouring rain!   We realized as we drove away that we had not written in the guest book, so just wanted to say thanks.Jane & Iain, 29th February 2012

Just a quick note to thank you both for the stay in your villa. We had the perfect week. The weather was superb so plenty of use of the pool. It was great returning to a clean, warm, homely environment. (Their second stay.)Mark, Lynnette, Kimerley & Luke, 8th August 2011

Hi, Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at our villa. It seems like such a long time ago now but hey – there is always next year! The place is a credit to you both, well appointed and spotless. The location is great and as this was our fourth visit (to Florida) in four years we had an idea of what we were looking for – Tuscan Ridge ticked all the boxes. I had already prior to our stay recommended you to one family (who I think have booked for Easter 2012) and only today recommended you again to another. We may well be in touch when Virgin release next year’s flights! One again many thanks. Kind RegardsRob, Suzanne, Emma & Sarah, 3rd August 2011

Just a quick message to say thanks once again for the use of the villa and the base of a fantastic holiday. Everything was great, though the summer heat did come as something of a shock! Please pass on our thanks to the MC for having everything prepared for our arrival and I hope we left everything in good order for them to do their work once we left. Expect a phone call sometime in the near future for a re-booking!Jon, 14th June 2011

We wanted to give you some feedback having just spent a week at your home in Tuscan Ridge. My wife and I are ex-vacation home owners and owned a property at Orange Tree for 4.5 years and sold it back in late summer of 2006, so we understand the challenges of owning/renting/vacationing from owners/guests perspective. We have rented vacation homes in Florida since selling and sometimes it can be a hit or a miss with the quality etc and have always compared to the quality of our own home that we had and to be honest yours is the first home we have really felt good about...my wife is a stickler for cleanliness! You have fabulous home and we both really enjoyed it feeling it was a home away from home and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending your home/visiting again. Our thanks to you both and to your management team who keep your home in great condition. I have also experience of management companies over the years and you seem to be getting it right! All the very best and thanks again!Tom & Lesley, 31st March 2011

Greetings from sunny Florida! It is our last day here. Hard to believe that two weeks are over. We have had a wonderful time and want to thank you so much for sharing your lovely villa with us. It is so comfortable and so immaculately kept. Fintan and Liesl (MC) are just gems!Ray & Nancy, 16th February 2011

Just a quick note to say that we thoroughly enjoyed your villa in Florida, it was beautiful clean, and easy access to Disney, exactly what we were hoping for. I am sure you will find we left it in perfect condition as we found it. Thank you again, we have already sent the website to several of our friends!Gary, Joyce and family, 18th January 2011

   Thanks for the wonderful holiday you helped provide for our family.  We absolutely loved your vacation home and wish we could build one just like it here at home. It is beautifully laid out, especially the kitchen/family room and provided us with many hours of enjoyment. The home is beautifully furnished and appointed and we made use of all of its special features, including Wi Fi, the spa/pool and the games room.  I can now say I can shoot billiars as well as the rest of them!  We did not visit the parks this time around but we couldn't say the same for shopping.  It was nice to see the Posner Park area expanded from the last time we visited.  Spent a day at the Mall at Millennia and it was absolute mayhem....  We also visited Marshall's, TJ Maxx and the outlet mall.  I was surprised at how close the villa is to where we needed to go.  Ordered Chinese for New Year's Eve from up the road on Highway 27 and the food was excellent.  Also recommend Ceci's for a cheap meal...all you can eat buffet with salad, soup, pasta, breadsticks, pizza and dessert.  Thank you again for allowing us to enjoy your incredible home.  Sincerely,Nida, Chris and family, 3rd January 2011

We would just like to say a massive thankyou for allowing us to hire your villa for our holiday. We had a fantastic time from day one and it was made all that more special for having such a fantastic place to stay. It was definately an all round service offered from yourselves and you were really helpful with the many questions etc that we had prior to us coming, nothing was too much trouble for you. You must be both very proud to offer such a welcoming place that is furnished to a very high specification. The ice machine on the freezer was a life saver for our drinks! Our holiday was totally shattering but thoroughly enjoyable and we managed to achieve so much which was great. The boys have had the best time ever and loved the pool and the games room. We will be sure to let people know of the villa and we will hopefully get to come again in the future. Could you please pass onto Lisel our thanks for the recommendation of the Irish Bar in Downtown Disney for lunch on the last day as the meal and atmosphere were great. Many Thanks againGwen, Nigel, Jack, Karen & Josh., 28th October 2010

thank you very much for the use of your beautiful villa for our family holiday this year...so much better to have your home comforts around you...both my children celebrated their birthdays...(one was 8 and the other 15) and it was lovely to be able let them celebrate with the added bonus of  home comforts. The children, young and old spent quite a few evenings in the games room and your free internet was great for my 15year old who was able to keep in contact with his mates. It also meant that we were able to send some pictures home to our parents. Once again thank you very much.Angela, Steve, Josh and Harry – Steve, Tina and Jamie, 7th August 2010

We've enjoyed our stay in your fabulous villa! The weather was lovely, 80-90's during all the week. The pool and spa were fantastic. It's our 8th visit to Florida and it won't be our last. We hope to return to your villa in the future. (Already re-booked with us for 2011)Taco & Karina, 15th May 2010

Just to say we enjoyed our stay in your lovely villa and had a marvellous time. The master suite was amazing and am finding it hard to adjust to a double bed. All the facilities were a great bonus, i.e. the garage play room and the laundry area and the spa pool was enjoyed every night. Thanks again for hiring your villa out to us and I'm sure you will have many more happy guests.George, Yvonne & Jennifer, 6th November 2009

I wanted to thank you for the use of your excellent villa and let you know that I have recommended it to a colleague.Julia & Paul, 12th September 2009

We have had a wonderful two weeks in your beautiful villa. The pool and spa were fantastic. We hope to be back.John, Norma, Amber & Terry, 2nd July 2009

Have just spent a great two weeks in your lovely villa. The space and quality of the decor made it a pleasure to be in. Lucy & Ben loved the games room and the pool is the icing on the cake.Martin, Jo, Lucy & Ben along with Nanna & Grandad, 12th June 2009

Just a fantastic place, great relaxation and atmosphere, beautifully finished property and welcoming features - much appreciated.Brian, Eileen & Gordon, 2nd October 2008
