WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY ABOUT THE LOCATION OF OUR VACATION HOME
"The location was perfect for parks, shopping, dining, etc. We would love to return sometime and will certainly recommend your home to friends and family."
Kevin & Sheryl, Mississauga, Ontario August 2011
"It was an easy commute to both Disney and Cocoa Beach. We had a terrific time and will definitely be back for another visit(s)!"
Jodi, Waterdown, Ontario July 2011
"Location is perfect. Wal Mart minutes away. 45 minute drive to Busch Gardens. 20 minute drive to Universal Studios. I would recommend your home to anyone!"
M family, Charlotte, North Carolina June 2011
"This home proved to be better than our expectations. Having had rented a home in Florida in the past and having had trouble, this vacation home was incredibly clean, ideally located, and a great place to return to after a day of being out and about with our children."
Ron F., Tecumseh, Ontario March 2011
"The location was very quiet and only minutes from all the attractions and shopping, and driving to either coast was within a hour and a half away. Highly recommended by us."
Dan & Donna O., Pinawa, Manitoba November 2010
"Everything we needed was right there at our fingertips. The parks were only 10-12 minutes away."
Linae T., Chicago Illinois July 2010
"We would not have changed a thing. Everything was well kept up and the neighborhood was quiet.
Stacy M. June 2010
"...exceeded our expectations - great house, great location. Got good value for money spent. It was a pleasure dealing with you and we really enjoyed staying at your villa - hope to again someday."
Robyn M. March 2010
"The other draw was the no rear facing neighbours ... really admired the privacy your home afforded and appreciated the quiet, secure neighbourhood."
Chris and Gerry R. January 2010
I would rate our experience as a 10 out of 10! The pricing/value was fabulous for us. The math is easy: To stay at a hotel/Disney resort I would have needed 3 rooms
to accomodate our group; we did well at your home for a fraction of the cost and enjoyed enhanced privacy and amenities..
"It was extremely close to all of the parks and there was plenty of shopping and dining close by to keep my daughters happy."
Barry E. December 2009
"Disney World was only 10 minutes away which was great for getting there for opening time to get on all the rides before the crowds hit."
Rhonda A. Milton, Ontario April 2009

Orlando Sunshine short-term holiday rental villa is ideally located in Davenport, an easy drive just about 12 minutes (9.5 miles) from the Disney property. To get to Disney World, you simply get on Interstate 4 (no toll) and take the second exit. It's an easy, fast drive unlike some locations around #192 which seem closer, but actually are slower because of traffic lights and congestion.
Our villa is also central to everything else that makes Orlando the top vacation destination in the world. Universal Studios and Sea World are both less than 30 minutes away. Plus, it's within an easy drive of the Orlando Orange County Convention Center, so you can mix convention and trade show business with kick back and relax pleasure.
The vacation home is tucked into an exclusive enclave of luxury homes in a quiet area, yet just a couple of minutes away from Interstate 4 and highway 27. It's across highway 27 from the huge new retail development Posner Park, which is a brand new retail development on the site which used to be the Kansas City Royals baseball team spring training facility. Many stores are already open, and when completed Posner Park will have an incredible variety of shopping and activities available just a mile or two from the villa.

Our vacation home is in a small, exclusive, secure and exceptionally well maintained gated community of just 35 villas. It's on a premium pie-shaped outside corner lot so neighbors at the side are not too close, and it backs onto open space so there are absolutely no neighbors behind to restrict your privacy. This direction also gives the pool full sunshine pretty much from mid-morning until sunset (you'll have a great view of the sunset since the view is completely open to the west). The direction of the pool is important in these villas because if the pool faces north, for example, the villa and neighboring villas will block the sunshine on the pool. A sunny, warm and private pool orientation like ours is definitely preferred - and very rare!
Unlike other vacation home communities which may have many poorly maintained properties, where grass is not cut or watered and the whole area is in decay; the street and homes in our community are incredibly well kept and there's no nasty surprises in the environment as you're approaching the villa - it's an absolutely beautiful location and you'll feel good arriving at it.
The small gated community was built in 2003/2004, and is very unusual in how small it really is - there is only one street that loops around, and has just 35 homes. It's got to be the smallest gated community in the Orlando area. In many gated communities, there are dozens of streets and literally hundreds of homes - there are far too many people about to really give you the seclusion and privacy a gated community should provide. Some of the largest communities are the resort communities which boast a community pool and other facilities. The thing they don't tell you is that almost all the homes in their community are much too far away to actually make use of those facilities. Plus, do you really want to swim in a community pool with dozens of other people when you can have your own large private pool all to yourself?
