UK / European Guests' Comments

Many travellers have used rental homes near Disney world and other Florida vacation rentals to enjoy the delights that Orlando, Disney and Florida have to offer.  Choosing a home is difficult enough, but will these villa rental homes near Disney World be as luxurious and delightful as their photographs suggest?  This you cannot be sure of, however, we hope that the testimonials detailed below from some of our previous guests will help reassure you that what you see on our web site is exactly what you will get. 

In September 2006 we changed managing agents (the company that looks after our property on our behalf).  The people that now manage the home are Iain and Alison Kidney (Citrus Grove Villas).  Their mission is to be the best in what they do and their primary focus is on customer service, both home owners and guests alike.  They firmly, and rightly, believe that to achieve their goals providing excellent customer service to both markets must go hand-in-hand - they cannot serve one well and not the other.   You can therefore rest assured that you will be look after well during your stay at our home.

The testimonials received from our UK guests are detailed below.  To see our US and Canadian Guests' comments please click this link.

We had a wonderful holiday in Florida and your villa exceeded all our expectations.

We have now stayed in 4 different villas on Florida vacations and I can honestly say that your villa is the best of these and we will certainly stay there again if it is available for our next visit to the area.

I must say you have been exceptional in all your dealings with me and neither could I fault your management company.

Finally I would like to sincerely thank you for letting us stay in your villa and your integrity in all your dealings with me. As I previously stated we hope to stay in your villa again in the future and should you wish to give me as a reference to any prospective guests, please do not hesitate to do so.

Thanks for enabling us to have a terrific holiday.

Hi Alan

The villa was absolutely fantastic. After a very long and arduous journey with 3 very tired, very excited children, to walk into your home and be greeted with not one but two Christmas trees all lit up and the house decorated for Christmas was absolutely fantastic. We found absolutely no fault in your home at all. I dealt with the management company only once and he was very polite and rectified one of the problems straight away, which was the BBQ not having been cleaned, the other problem was the TV in the master bedroom broke, but we weren't expecting that fixed straight away. The games room is fantastic, the pool is fantastic, in fact everything is fantastic and we will be returning one day in the not too distant future I hope. I will be recommending you to all of my friends. The only downside to the holiday was it finished too soon. My middle daughter who is 6 always looks to come home after 1 week on holiday, this time she didn't want to come home at all. All in all we had a wonderful time.

Once again thank you for your lovely home and I will be in contact again soon to book another holiday.

Your home was absolutely lovely and I think that we found everything that we could ever have dreamed of. The children all loved their rooms allowing them all to have their own space at the end of the day and none of us could believe the size of the wardrobes.... They loved the pool and I think they were in it at the end of each day and found it very warm and accommodating. Also, the games room kept us all entertained.

Your management company was very prompt in answering our call out for a bleeping smoke alarm and with information about local churches.

Your home is a credit to yourself and somewhere to be extremely proud of.

If we do ever come back to Florida we would definitely wish to stay in your property and I would definitely recommend it to friends. Thank you very, very much!

We all had a fantastic time at the villa and would never use a hotel again after that.

We had some fun with the weather but it all added to the enjoyment.  We found the villa above expectations...... We will definitely consider another visit and have no problems recommending it to our friends.  Thanks again for the experience.

We had a great time at your house and if we come to Orlando again we would most
definitely stay there......

Thanks again.

We had a Great time and your Home was a big part of it.... .I have already recommended you to friends who are going out next Year so I hope they will be in touch soon.

Than you for letting the Carters and Sheppherds borrow your beautiful Home.

Just to say thank you for the rental of your fabulous villa ..... We had a great holiday, kids loved the pool (and the telly) probably more than the parks. We came as two families of 6 and 4 and there was still plenty of space for us all to spread out comfortably.

If we can find another family of six to fill it we'd love to come back again in a few years time.  We'd have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone we know who is heading over to Orlando......We look forward to revisiting the mouse house in a few years time maybe….

Just to let you know that we had a fantastic holiday. We were very impressed with the villa and really didn't want to leave. It was everything and more than we could have imagined. It was our first time staying in a villa and I will definitely be recommending your villa. The location was perfect for basically everywhere we wanted to go. The kids loved the pool and we found it hard to get them out even to go to the Disney Parks ..........Many Thanks

Just a little note to say that we all had a wonderful time in Florida. The villa was fantastic:

Ideal location

Beautifully presented++++

Ample space for both family's.

The children especially loved the clock (At 6am in the morning!).

Nice neighbours (except the Beasties and fire ants)

Our only regret is that we have spent so much money that we may not be able to go back next year. However as soon as we have saved enough again you will be hearing from us.  All our feedback can only be positive and we will certainly be recommending your villa to our family and friends.

Best wishes and thank you so much for a hassle free, beautiful, holiday accommodation. We were so sad to leave but I am sure we WILL be back in the near future.

Hi Alan we had a fantastic holiday and that was more to do with the villa.  It's a wonderful place there is nothing negative about it.  It's just fantastic.  The children used to complain half way through the day no matter what park we were in to go back to the villa so they could go in the pool.  It was such a magical time from start to finish.  I'm sure my sister in-law would have approved.  Did I mention it was the anniversary of her death while we was there and I honestly believe we couldn't have been anywhere in the world better than in your beautiful villa that day.  Anyway down to next year can you see if the villa is available the last week of October the first week of November so its about this time next year please.  Once again thank you for letting us share in your wonderful home.

…. The villa was absolutely beautiful. It was nicer than I imagined, the pool was fabulous and we played a few games of pool in the games room when it rained.

We thoroughly enjoyed the holiday and we are hoping to go again. I am trying to get a few friends to go next time as the house is too big for just two of us and the 10% reduction will definitely come in handy.

So thanks again for a wonderful holiday. You ands your wife have an absolutely beautiful house. I also liked that it is in a really quiet area. Have no complaints whatsoever and I will definitely be recommending your house to anyone who is thinking about going to Florida. I have taken loads of pictures of the rooms and hopefully I will get some bookings for you.

Thanks again and I will be in touch.

We had a fantastic holiday, very tiring as we tried to pack everything in, as you do.  The villa was awesome, very impressed wanted to bring it home with me ha ha!  Could not fault it at all. So spacious, there were nine of us and we had so much room.  The pool and the outdoor area were just perfect.  Needless to say we were all sad to leave and hope to go back sometime in the near future.  Thank you for letting us rent your lovely villa.

After just returning from second visit to the DisneyMouseHouse, we can honestly say we have had a fantastic holiday with all our family. The villa is superb, as is the location - very convenient to all the theme parks and other attractions (shop 'til you drop also), but if you want to relax, it is situated in a peaceful area with lovely neighbours. The management company are extremely nice very helpful should you require any assistance. Alan the owner is the nicest person to deal with and everything is done on a personal level, it's like dealing with an old friend. This also reflects within the villa - it having a lot of extras not normally found in a rental home. This makes your stay even more special.  I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anybody and will be booking to go back there a third time.  THANK YOU ALAN FOR A FANTASTIC HOLIDAY.

Well first of all can we just say WOW !! your villa is absolutely beautiful, the pictures just do not prepare you for how amazing it is when you walk through the door, it takes your breath away, it is stunning....We cannot think of a single thing that you could have done to make our holiday any better than it was, it was by far the best yet, the villa is so spacious and comfortable with everything you could possibly need we really did not want to come home.

Our holiday was fantastic in every way, the villa was out of this world, the pool, well my 2 younger girls turned into water babies they were in it as soon as they got up and we had to drag them out to go to bed, if they could have packed it in our cases I'm sure they would have.

Well once again Alan thank you for a fantastic holiday and good luck for the middle of the year when hopefully you will be moving out there yourselves.

I'm sure that we will be going to your villa again before we hopefully will be moving out there ourselves.

We had a great time and all loved your villa, it really is beautiful and had everything we needed. We enjoyed it so much that we are thinking about maybe coming again next year......

We must thank you for the excellent accommodation you provided us it was second to none. The only thing you did not provide was the dollars and the car - HA! HA!.....I really hope we can do business again.

.....We have visited Florida six times however never stayed in such pleasant surroundings.  The villa is absolutely beautiful and had everything that we could possibly need.  We had a brilliant time, thank you so much for everything.
Clive Feeney, Tyne & Wear, England

We had a wonderful time in your villa, with the only downside being we did not stay longer!  Our accommodation in our second week was at the Summer Bay timeshare resort on the 192 not far from Tuscan Ridge.  Although it was very clean and had excellent amenities it did not compare with the villa. We met up with friends who were on holiday with Thomas Cook and were renting a villa farther up the 192. They came and stayed with us for a night and were 'wowed' by the villa, stating theirs was not a patch on ours.

As far as doing anything extra for your customers or supplying anything extra, I don't think that would be possible.  The level of amenities and facilities in the villa were exceptional, you have thought of everything and provided the ingredients for a superb holiday.

If I could offer one point to maybe improve the website, it would be to get some photo's in the sunshine as the outlook from the pool when the sun was shining was superb.  Apart from that nothing!!

Ashley Smith, Kent, England

When we arrived at the villa my first thought was WOW this place is huge.  Entering the villa and seeing the dining table laid out with napkins in the glasses and the cutlery all shining was the perfect way to end a long day's travelling, we were at home at last.... But there was more... Walking from the dinning area into the kitchen, nook and family room was an unbelievable experience and as for the bedrooms... How one can rent a villa of this size at a peak season rate of £10.71 per night per person is unbelievably good value, in fact not even Travel Inn in the UK can beat the rates, and only the Ritz comes near on quality.

Our two weeks at Disney Mouse House were about as close to the perfect family holiday that I think we will ever come.  What better way to visit Disney than to get up in the morning, have breakfast while everyone gets ready, be at the parks for opening time and by 5pm be back at the villa relaxing those sore legs with a swim in the pool, before heading back to the Parks for the evening fireworks.

In fact the pool was so fantastic that the kids were begging to leave the Theme parks and return for a swim by mid afternoon.

Of course another major factor is your neighbours and we found the families both sides of Disney Mouse House and in front very friendly and helpful, giving us help and advice on shopping, restaurants and where my brother in law could go to watch Chelsea get beaten by Arsenal (unfortunately though on our visit this didn't happen!).

Would we return again, well no, but that's only because we were so impressed that we have put our names down to buy a villa in the same village. Would we recommend anyone else to stay at Disney Mouse House - the answer is without a shadow of doubt certainly was my best visit to Florida (3rd).
Anne McLeod, Glasgow, Scotland

When we opened the door to the house we were stunned. We have stayed in four luxury villas in Florida and Spain but the Mouse House took our breath away. It surpassed our expectations. The quality is exceptional and the attention to detail is superb. We didn't want for anything...except more time !! Graham and I stay at the Hilton several weekends in a year and we now feel that we are lowering our standards after the luxury of your villa. I know this sounds a bit gushy, but we had a really, really, really ,really good time and I've spent the rest of the summer wishing I was back !!
Caroline Hotchkin, Grimsby, England
June 2003
I must congratulate you (most probably your wife) on the layout and decor in the villa. It was and DVDs excellent idea for when it continually rains!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....Despite the weather we had a wonderful time and look forward to returning again in a couple of years.  We'll need that long to save up!!  We would have no reservations in either recommending your villa to others or returning there ourselves.
