Reviews 4-Jeff and Sandra's Florida Villa


Amazing Villa

What can I say about this amazing villa it was everything we hoped for and more. Sandra was on hand prior to us leaving the UK providing all information we needed including directions and information about the local area. After a delayed flight leaving Manchester we arrived in Orlando at 8 and then made our way to the villa. Upon arrival we were very tired after a long day of travelling and we were greeted with a lovely welcome pack including bread, milk, butter etc so we were extremely happy that we didnít have to venture to the local super market for supplies, we had enough to see us until next morning. The villa was spotless, we travelled with 2 children and 3 adults (1 was my 72 year old father in law who had only recently travelled abroad for the first time) he was amazed. The villa was extremely spacious for us all and with televisions in all bedrooms and 2 living rooms when we wanted a lazy day in no one was falling over each other. We utilized the games room (I learned to play pool 🤣🤣) and the kids enjoyed the table football and air hockey.) The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed including plastic plates and cups to be used outside by the pool. There was a huge amount of towels for use which was fantastic and spare bedding. The pool area was amazing with plenty of sun loungers and seating for us all and more. The pool was fantastic and ideal for the kids after a long day at the parks. I would recommend the pool heat (we went March to April). Our 7 year old daughter would have lived in the pool if we let her. We had a fantastic time so much so we wanted to book for next year but the dates we were looking at have gone. We will definitely book again for 2021 though.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at this villa! Everything was clean, in order, and available for a great vacation. Appreciate the attentiveness of the owners.

Excellent location, fantastic villa

5* We stayed here for the last week of November, amazing villa with top rate facilities. Pool was beautiful and we enjoyed plenty of days lazing around despite the time of year. Well equipped kitchen and plenty of rooms, even providing Netflix for entertainment if youíre not going out. Great location close to all parks and shops. Amazing value for the price!

The most perfect place to stay in Florida!

5* I just love this property and the owners too, they're great to correspond with and will answer any questions. It is in a perfect location, in a beautiful gated community. It's only 30 minutes from Universal and even less for Disney and super easy to get there thanks to the Sat Nav in the Villa! There is everything you could possibly need in the property, the washer and dryer comes in very handy so we can pack less and take more home! I would never ever want to stay anywhere else, this is my third time staying here and I fall in love with it a little more each time I go.

Sophie L. and family, UK 6th Sept 2018

Amazing Villa

Thank you for allowing us to have an amazing week in your amazing villa. The facilities here are outstanding. The villa is perfectly located for trips to Disney, only being 15 minutes away, and only 25 minutes away from Universal. We have had an amazing holiday and experienced some great times and made memories we will never forget. Once again thank you.

As advertised and more

5* This is a beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood. My husband and I stayed here with two of our daughters, 2 grandsons, and our daughterís friend. With 4 bedrooms there was more than enough room for everyone. Julie does a fabulous job keeping the place sparkling clean. She even stopped by to finish a load of linens and introduced herself. The home was well stocked with towels, linens, cookware and dishes, movies and books. Even toys for the little ones. The beds were comfy and the rooms were beautifully furnished with lots of storage. And I havenít even mentioned the pool yet ❤️❤️ And the game room!! The kids had a blast in the pool. It was nice to get in anytime we wanted. Sandra was very easy to work with, nice and quick to answer questions about booking and such. She sent us easy to follow directions to get to and into the house. Will definitely be looking to book again!

Wonderful Villa.

Well, where do I start! I have looked through previous comments and have been racking my brains to see if I can come up with other superlatives I can use but I canít think of any. A wonderful villa in an ideal location, very well presented with some real nice touches, Netflix, Amazon Prime and of course the UK adaptors. Hopefully we will come back in the future! Thanks again!

Chris W. and family, UK 1st April 2018

Great villa!

5* - We had a wonderful week at this villa. It was clean, spacious, and had everything we needed. The pool was wonderful!

Jenny B. and family, USA, 24th March 2018

Loved it and will definitely book again!

5* - This is a lovely property and really is a home from home - Sandra and Jeff have thought of everything! It has everything you need to relax and live like a Floridian for the duration of your holiday. It is a good size with two lounges, four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The pool area is lovely and because of the extended area there are plenty of sunbeds to go around. We loved the fact that we could still access our favourite shows on 'Netflicks' - the perfect way to unwind at the end of a busy day shopping/visiting the theme parks without the annoying adverts interrupting every few minutes! The villa is on a quiet and clean estate, and is easily accessed either from the 192 or the I4. I recommend this 'home from home' to anyone - you won't regret it - thanks Sandra!

Carol B, and Family, W. Yorks, UK. 16th March 2018

Perfect Home From Home!

5* - From the very beginning of booking the villa, Sandra was so helpful with any querys we had and was always quick to respond to my emails. The Villa itself is perfect and equipped with anything you could possibly need! My son made good use of the pool and it was nice having all the space around the pool to chill out when we were not in the parks. It also felt very safe being a gated community. Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday!

Frankie C. and Family, Gloucestershire, UK, 28th February 2018

Very nice house with a great pool and amenities

5* - We absolutely loved our stay. The kids loved the pool and game area. Located close to Disney. Everything about our stay was perfect!

Amy Y. and family, USA 23rd Feb 2018

Great Place to stay!

5* - This villa is probably one of the best equipped villas we have stayed in, and we have stayed in quite a few. The pool area is large, and there are plenty of pool loungers and seats. The villa is spacious and comfortable. It is spotlessly clean and decorated in a Floridian style. The location is great, with easy access to I 4 and US 192. There is a Publix, bank, and other shops and restaurants within a couple of miles. The gated community is kept tidy and secure, and the community centre hosts social events to which everyone is made welcome. Overall, this is a great place to stay in Central Florida, and I would happily recommend it.

J & B J., January 2018, Wales, UK.

Wonderful for a family or a couple for a get relaxing getaway. (5 star)

It was more than I expected!! Extremely clean with so many wonderful extras that made our family stay so enjoyable! After long days at Disney and Universal we could relax in the heated pool and play a few games of pool. I didn't want to leave!

Tracie N. and Family, Nth Carolina USA, December 17

Wow Ė so close you can hear the fireworks!!! (5 star)

Palm Tree Villa is Sandra and Jeff s home from home in which they were gracious enough to let us stay. It is furnished and equipped brilliantly with everything you could want and while this trip was just the two of us we were so impressed with the space available we have already booked Again to bring the whole tribe. Many villas say they are close to Disney, well this one certainly is as we could hear the fireworks every night, but not in an intrusive way. The fact that there are two fully equipped and comfortable living areas means that there is plenty of room for everyone to relax and enjoy their stay. We have stayed in many Villas where there is ample room to sleep but restricted living area, not in Palm Tree Villa, room for all. Plenty of space around the pool for everyone to relax and a superb games room if there are any Disney rain days. A hire car is a must but there are nearby take aways who all appear to deliver, and a Publix only minutes away. We prefer a little bit of peace and quiet and this was perfect for us, close enough for easy access to all the attractions but not too close. The fact the community is gated gave us an added sense of security and we quite like the mixture of local residents and visitors.

A and S. R., Cleveland UK November 2017

WOW, what an amazing place! (5 star)

Well,where to start. We are a family of 4 - 2 adults 2 children and we took my mam and dad. We have never done a villa before so where a little skeptical but omg villa all day long especially this one, beautiful condition beautiful decor a home from home with all the frills, heated pool , games room, big bedrooms and a living room and a lounge, the owners are nothing but very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. We would definitely recommend 100% not to far from all the parks. thank you Jeff and Sandra for a wonderful stay from the Peacocks.

Gary and Nicola P., Co Durham UK October 2017

Fantastic family fun in Florida (5 star)
This home was wonderful from start to finish. Extremely close to everything without having to stay in a busy city. You feel as though you've arrived home as soon as you walk in. Beautifully and comfortably decorated. The entire family had an incredible time. Recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation. 5 stars.
Margie and Family, USA 6th - 13th October 2017

Fantastic Villa in a Great Location  (5 star)

We have just spent an amazing three weeks at Palm Tree Villa. The villa is furnished to a high standard, is extremely comfortable and the pool area was enjoyed by all. The Wifi came in very useful to our teenagers and our football mad son made full use of the Cable TV! Netflix is available if you need some chill time after the parks. Anything you can imagine is provided - towels, plug adapters, hairdryers, straighteners, sat nav, books, dvds, etc. The location of the villa is ideal with the theme parks 20 to 30 minutes away. There are supermarkets, restaurants and take-away's all in the vicinity. Beaches on both coasts and easy to get to and take just over an hour. Booking was very straight-forward and the owners are very approachable and helpful. Thank you Sandra and Jeff for letting us use your villa and we hope to be back soon!

Lynne D. and family, Teesside, UK 11th August 2017


The perfect stay!  (5 star)
I am very picky and I must say I was very pleased with this home, it was spacious, clean, convenient and well stocked with items you wouldn't expect and just simply gorgeous! I will definitely look for availability of this villa when traveling to the area in the future.

Y.H., Tallahassee, Florida, 3rd August 2017

Absolutely Fabulous Villa! (5 star)

We are a family of 4 - 2 adults 2 teenagers and we all thoroughly enjoyed our time at the villa. The newly furbished pool is wonderful - great to swim and have fun in. The wifi is excellent which is a big thing with teenagers ! The villa itself is really comfortable and has everything you can think of. The bedrooms and in fact the whole villa is decorated to a lovely standard. Booking was easy and Sandra provided directions to the villa and useful information, she even rang to check we had arrived and all was ok exceptional customer service.! They have caretakers which we had to contact over a smoke alarm and again they were swift and helpful. The villa is located close to various restaurants and supermarkets and of course Disney and Universal are easy to drive from this villa. There are plenty of pool towels books and we took full advantage of the villa and pool as it was too hot to go to the parks some days ! It enabled us to relax unwind and enjoy priceless family time. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa . Thank you x

A Home From Home! (5 star)
Had an excellent two week holiday in the palm tree villa. The villa is in a fabulous location (close to many excellent restaurants not to mention disney) is very spacious and is furnished to an excellent standard that the pictures do not do it justice. Booking process with Sandra was as easy as you'd want it to be and never too busy to answer any questions we had. Overall I can't recommend this villa enough and can't wait to book again for our next trip...... just wish it sooner than 2020 :(
Ross C. and family, Scotland, 2nd June 2017

Amazing Villa, Fantastic Location, very friendly and helpful owners!! (5 star)
This Villa is fabulous!! The villa provides everything you could possibly need - and more (a satnav was even provided!!). The location of the villa is perfect, we were right in the middle of everywhere we wanted to go whether it be the Disney/Universal parks, Cape Canaveral or Clear Water Beach. The owners are brilliant - so friendly and helpful, advice was plentiful and much needed and any queries we had about the area or anything else were answered swiftly. All in all I couldn't recommend Sandra and Jeff's Villa highly enough!!!

Emma M. and family, Middlesbrough, UK, April 2017

Just the two of us! (5 star)
This was our 4th time staying at this villa and the first time for just the two of us on our own and it was as perfect as ever. Everything was catered for as usual. It's In a great location with shops, bars and restaurants close by with a new Ihop down the road which is great for breakfast and Chilis for some great food after a fun packed day. Both of which we tried for the first time this year. There is always something new to experience! I have recommended this villa to everyone as it's a perfect place to stay when visiting Florida. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Can't wait to book for our next visit!
Emma and Lee, Norton, UK, 19th September 2016

Fabulous! (5 star) 
Thank you Jeff and Sandra for making our trip to Florida a lasting memory and holiday of a life time. Having never traveled to America before you helped us from start to finish to ensure that everything was in place to make the holiday hassle free and thoroughly amazing. The villa is very clean and comfortable and the kids loved the pool especially after a hot busy day Fabulous!sight seeing. The villa is ideally placed for all the main attractions Disney world, universal, Seaworld, the water parks and the further a field Busch gardens which the kids enjoyed the most and Kennedy space centre. Supermarkets and shops are all in easy reach and there is an abundance of great restaurants. Thanks for recommending 'Manny's' chop house, the ribs were to die for. If we were going to return to Florida in the future we would definitely want to stay at yours again. Thank you for everything.
Jeff and Gill P. and family, UK, 21st July 2016

Surpassed our expectations! (5 star)
This was our first visit to the states and Jeff & Sandraís place was exactly what we had hoped for. The villa is very spacious with everything you could possibly want. Sandra has tried to think of everything and it was reflected in our stay. The villa is large and well laid out with excellent furnishings throughout. The kids loved the pool and the location for Theme Parks, Nasa, Air Boats, the Gulf and other activities couldnít have been better. After days out it was a great home to return to. The gated estate is spacious, quiet and very well kept. Being only a short drive from shops and amenities was a real bonus. The help from Sandra before leaving home was excellent, she replied to any questions both very quickly and courteously, she couldnít have been more helpful. Top marks for both the owner and property. Would we go again, you bet. Everything about the stay surpassed our expectations, just book it and enjoy. 
Dave B. and family, UK 3rd July 2016
 Amazing stay! (5 star)

Thanks for the amazing stay. We certainly felt welcomed and at home! The kids LOVED the pool and game room. We couldnít have picked a better place to stay!!. Once again thanks and you will no doubt hear from us on our next Florida adventure!
Lora G., and family, Texas, USA, 21st June 2016

 Amazing Time! (5 star)

We had an amazing time here. Everything was exactly what we had expected from your advertisements. The kids are so sad that this amazing trip has come to an end. We had to beg them to come out of the pool everynight. Your villa is very welcoming and we enjoyed every moment of our stay. Thanks again and we hope to visit again soon.

James H. and family, Atlanta, USA, 13th June 2016

Perfect Holiday! (5 star)

We stayed at Palm Tree Villa in May / June 2016 and it was absolutely perfect. We stayed as a party of 4 adults and 5 kids. Great living space, with two lounges so we could watch something different to the kids on a night. The kids loved the pool, probably more than the theme parks, which were really easy to get to from the villa. They also loved the games room and had loads to occupy them while us adults had time to chill out! The villa sits on a lovely, quiet gated estate, pool has a private outlook and had the sun all day, it had everything we needed, a home from home. Sat Nav was particularly useful to navigate to our destinations. When we arrived the villa was clean, very well presented, and Sandra (owner) provided lots of great information on the villa, and recommendations for food, days out and lots of other tips. She was also very responsive to emails while we were there if we had any questions. Overall a fantastic holiday and I would wholeheartedly recommend Palm Tree Villa as an excellent place and location, especially for families.

Marie H. and family, Newcastle, UK. 21st May 2016

 Beautiful Villa! (5 star)

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful villa! We have had the most amazing two weeks and have totally felt at home. The pool has been a big hit with our two little girls and they have never wanted to come out. Thank you for recommending Mannyís, the food was great, and we also loved Cracker Barrell. Thank you again for everything it has really been a fab holiday and can we book again for May 2018?:-)

Simon H. and family, Durham UK, 6th May 2016


Outstanding Accommodation and Facilities Ė Ideal Location (5 star)

This was my second stay, having stayed there about three years ago. The accommodation is the ideal family orientated place to stay when visiting Florida if you are going to the Parks or anywhere else in the state. The house is large, well equipped and a home from home. Sandra has thought of everything you may need to make your stay great with Wifi, heated swimming pool, games room in garage, two living areas with large TVís (one Smart), Sat Nav, tourist guides and info on best places to eat and visit, there is even sun tan lotion in the cupboard!! I would have no reservations in recommending anyone to stay here and make your Florida holiday special.

Barry D. and family, Teesside, UK, 30th March 2016


Wow what a fantastic villa. We have stayed at Sandra and Jeffís other villa which is beautiful but this was our favourite. Easy to get to from the airport about 30 minutes and located on a beautiful gated community. The villa surpassed our expectations. Two large family areas, a great kitchen and four bedrooms. Games room in the garage which we didnít use but looked great for a bit of fun. The pool is to die for after a busy day, canít beat it. This villa is probably situated in the best area as it is easy for the parks, shopping and a drive to the beach. Sandra and jeff, you should be proud, what a fantastic home you provide. Love it love it love it. Thank you.

Norman W. and family, Durham, UK , 8th November 2015

 Home From Home! (5 star)

This was our third trip to Florida and our third stay in Palm Tree Villa. We absolutely love it and wouldnít choose anywhere else. Jeff and Sandra run a brilliant holiday home and we can never fault them for anything. Our nephews came with us this year and they had a fabulous time. My eldest nephew (8 yr) was either in the pool or playing pool in the garage whenever he had a spare moment. This villa is so close to all the major parks it only takes a 20 min or so car journey, so the kids donít get bored waiting to get there. I would recommend this villa to anyone and everyone, itís perfect. We havenít even been back a week yet and we have already booked for the following year J.

Emma and Lee, Stockton, UK, 28th September 2015


Fabulous villa! Everything you need when on holiday, felt like home straight away! Canít recommend this enough! Fab location to Disney, Universal and Sea World.

Wendy A and family, Horden, UK, 11th July 2015

Absolutely Fabulous!

Upon our first contact with Palm Tree Villa's owner, Sandra, we knew we picked the perfect house to stay while visiting Universal Studios. Her customer service was the highest quality. Her communications were so polite, very timely, organized, and detailed. She thought of everything so that we would be prepared for our arrival, stay, and departure, and be able to enjoy our stay without any worries.
We were amazed with this beautiful and absolutely spotless house. Everything was very clean and wonderfully decorated and furnished. We were most comfortable staying there and felt as if it were our home away from home. Having two separate family areas with a tv in each was very appreciated. Having a second door in the guest bathroom to the pool area came in very handy. The variety of bed sizes were perfect for our family. And having the master bedroom separate from the others was nice. The pool was very refreshing after long days in the park and the games room was super fun!
The location was great and being in a gated community was a plus. Palm Tree Villa has all the amenities and more that you could possibly need during your stay. The owners have thought of everything. We especially appreciated Sandra's kindness in sending us our very important personal items that we had been searching for, but had not realized we left them at her house. She contacted me and offered to mail them to us after another guest found them. We sincerely value their honesty and kindness. Palm Tree Villa is absolutely fabulous, and perfect in every way. You will not be disappointed in any manner!

Melissa R. & Family, Pennsylvania U.S, 1st -5th August 2015


What a wonderful place to stay! You couldn't wish for better accommodation- anything that you needed was there. My family and I had a lovely holiday. We were spoilt for choice of things to do during the day. There were plenty of shops and places to eat. I am very much looking forward to returning next year. Overall a wonderful holiday.

Jeff W.and Family, Lancs UK, 15th June 2015

The Perfect family Villa

Just got back from our stay in Sandra & jeffs fantastic Palm Tree Villa. Two grandparents, two daughters and three grandchildren. The Villa could not have been more perfect for the seven of us. It was spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and the pool and games room even made the grandchildren put down their I-phones!! [Yes I did say that] What more can I say. The perfect family villa close to all the major attractions.

Denis S. and family, W. Yorks, UK 26th May 2015

Perfect in Every Single Way!

We have just returned from an amazing stay at Sandra and Geoff's villa. As the title of my review says, it was perfect in every single way. Having never booked a villa before and after looking at what felt like hundreds of different properties we eventually settled on this one. From the moment I booked I was so glad this was the one we chose, Sandra was in touch immediately and on the lead up to the holiday was available to answer the many questions I had and provided lots of other useful information. On arrival we were all wow'd by the villa, it is so large and spacious, spotlessly clean and full of all the amenities you could need. A real home away from home. The swimming pool was to die for and larger than I expected, it had full sunshine all day long with plenty of comfortable loungers. We all made full use of it from morning till night. The villa is in a lovely gated community which is in a great location with supermarkets/restaurants within easy reach and just an easy 20-30 minute drive to Disney. I would highly recommend this villa to anybody and if we are ever fortunate enough to be able to return to Orlando in the future it will certainly be our number 1 choice.

Nicola W. and Family, UK 11th May 2015


Couldnít Ask For Better!

We stayed at the palm tree villa in April 2015, we visited all of the theme parks, Disney was only about 15 minutes away whilst universal was about 30 minutes so great location.... We also got married whilst in Orlando :)
Even before leaving the UK Sandra was really helpful in answering all our questions. Her directions to the villa were second to none, we never got lost once!! The villa was clean and spacious and had everything we needed and more. As there was only four of us we rattled around but could easily fit two families. The kids loved the pool and games room after a long day walking in the sun.
All in all a fantastic holiday, couldn't have asked for a better place to stay :)
