Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great holiday in Florida and staying in this house was a big part of it. The facilities and comfort of the house is top rate. The location is great and the whole experince was excellent from booking the house to leaving key on the departure day. The kids loved the table tennis table, table football and of course the pool! Would use again and have recommended the house to friends. DI, Essex

Fantastic holiday in this beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a 2 week holiday at Hidden Springs Villa.

It is a beautiful house, furnished to a very high standard and spotlessly clean. All of the the rooms are extremely spacious and well laid out, has new flooring throughout and is very well equipped with lots of thoughtful extras.

The pool and spa area were especially welcome after a long, hot day at the parks.

Glenbrook is a very well kept community with plenty of shops and restaurants all within a short distance. Walmart is literally on the corner for any supplies you may (or may not) need. It also has a small clubhouse where you can go to use their printers for online check-in etc.

We have stopped at many villas over the years in Florida and we can honestly say that for quality and value for money it is one of the best and we highly recommend it to anybody lucky enough to be visiting Florida.

Gill the owner was a delight to deal with always responding to any queries in a very timely manner, I shall miss our almost weekly emails, I'm sure she will not lol

Nice Home but Very Uncomfortable Air-Conditioning and Cold-Hot Tub

  • 3 of 5

The home was very nice, clean and in a great location. I was very pleased with the condition and layout of the house itself and my kids loved the game room. Unfortunately I had 3 concerns that really bothered me. 1. You are not allowed to regulate the temperature of the air conditioning in the home. You must email, call or text someone who will adjust the air by remote control. Since the temperatures fluctuated greatly on my trip (from temps in the 40s to the high 70s) we were either freezing cold or too hot for the majority of the time we were in the house. 2. We paid to heat the whirlpool spa and pool and both remained freezing cold the entire week. 3. You are provided with EXACTLY on roll of toilet paper for each bathroom and no dishwashing liquid or cleaning supplies ( not even a sample size). None of these are huge issues by itself, but when put together it made for a very uncomfortable experience and we will look for a different house the next time we visit Florida.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write us a review - we are always keen to receive feedback, be it positive or negative. We would not be able to improve what we offer otherwise. With regard to the AC, as discussed during your stay, the original AC system was so complicated that every time someone tried to adjust it, the whole system would simply jam up and be stuck for days. We were aware of another villa owner with the same system whose whole AC unit froze solid as a result. We have had this system in place for a good few years now, and it has been very well received. However, we do take on board you experienced large temperature fluctuations with the weather. The pool & spa were serviced and checked by an engineer who could find no reason why the pool was cold during your stay. He informed us that if the pool blanket is left off during a cold night, the water temperature can drop as much as 15 degrees , and the heater would struggle to bring it back up to temperature the next day. We were shocked to hear about the lack of supplies on your arrival - each bathroom should have a full toilet roll and soap, and there should be a couple of dishwasher tablets left under the sink, with cloths in one of the kitchen drawers. We have spoken to our management company to ensure this does not happen again.

Fantastic Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic Villa, best we have stayed in Florida!! perfect for families and large groups. Well kept, clean with great facilities. The kids loved the pool every day after the parks, TV's in every room kept them entertained at night. Bedrooms are all huge and plenty of storage space, more than enough bathrooms. Games room is a great addition, however the kids loved the pool so much it never got used after the first night. Location is spot on for all the main parks including Universal, Seaworld. Close enough to shops and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again and will be recommending to family and friends. Very reasonably priced for the size and facilities.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was excellently situated only 15/20 minutes away from the Disney Parks by car and 5 minutes away from a varied choice of restaurants.

As soon as we entered the Villa we knew it was going to be a great holiday as the Villa was better than the pictures on the website show. It was immaculate, spacious and well presented with all the amenities you could want even down to its own spa bath in the main bathroom.

Having it's own pool was a big plus as we spent lots of time in and around it. Definitely one of the best Villa's we have stayed in.

The owners were very friendly and helpful when booking the Villa, recommended lots of local attractions and places to go that were not necessarily on most tourist itineraries.

We would definitely recommend this Villa, so much so we are planning on booking it again next year.

The Glenbrook Vacation Resort lies just north of Route 192 on Highway 27, and is only 7 miles/10 minutes drive from the Disney World Theme Parks, 20 minutes from SeaWorld and 25 minutes from the Universal resort and the heart of the International Drive area. Busch Gardens in Tampa and the superb white-sand beaches of the Gulf and Atlantic coasts can be reached in under an hour. There is a large WalMart less than a mile away, and a Publix supermarket just over 500 yards away. There are a handful of shops and restaurants within walking distance, with many more just 5-10 minutes away. The shopping malls and Premium Outlets are just 20 minutes away

Golf: Glenbrook lies within 30 minutes of 30 PGA Championship golf courses, so it's a haven for golfers of all ages.
