Thankyou very much Dave for taking the time to post this review. It was a pleasure for us to be able to welcome you and your family to Tuscanpines and we look forward to you visiting again in the future. Best Wishes Marita and Mike
My Nominee For Rental of The Year award
It is nice to find a professional and friendly full service company and property owner that made this a travel experience that I will surely repeat.
This is truly a home from home experience with outstanding levels of comfort and quality!
I am fortunate enough to enjoy a pretty high standard of living and unless you are staying in a 5 star hotel it is difficult to get the same when you travel, but I was not disappointed with this property.
No thought has been spared in terms of attention to detail and a service to match.
I also needed some assistance after I had checked out and the after sales service was also outstanding.
See you again in 2014.

Luxury home from home villa near Disneyworld
We spent 17 wonderful nights in this villa. Mike & Marita phoned us from the UK on the first morning to check that all was well. The villa is amazing with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms it suited our requirements perfectly. The pool was really appreciated at the end of the day after spending the day at the theme parks. We were a party of 6 adults & 3 children so private facilities were essential and on no occasion did we feel that the accommodation was cramped. Our grandchildren were really sad to leave and are already asking when we can return.
The location was really good for the theme parks, golf, shopping and restaurants. Read more

Lyn & Dave Proctor and family stayed at our villa during August this year. We are delighted that they had such a pleasant stay in our villa and enjoyed their holiday so much. It would be a pleasure to have them stay at Tuscanpines again in the future.

Outstanding, Fabulous Experience, Higly Recommended
We booked our holiday to stay at Tuscan Pines Villa 16 months in advance after having a lengthily conversation with Mike on the telephone. From that moment onwards the remainder of the time leading up to our holiday spent speaking to Mike and Marita was amazing, they are both the most helpful people always willing to advice and help in anyway and never made me once feel like I was hassling them! And I called and emailed them many times in the lead up to our holiday!! Their wealth of knowledge is out of this world when it came to assisting us in planning an amazing holiday. We had the pleasure of spending 3 weeks in their villa and I will never forget when we drove up to the villa on the first day we were so excited to get inside and once we opened the door all our jaws dropped when we saw how stunning the villa was. On the first morning we received a phone call from Mike and Marita checking that we we had arrived safely and settled in such a lovely touch. Our holiday was in December and the villa was decorated with a Christmas tree some decorations and lights which was a lovely touch. It was also my daughter's birthday whilst we were there and when we arrived there was a card on the breakfast bar from Mike and Marita welcoming us to their villa and a lovely Chocolate Birthday Cake in the fridge for Paige which they had arranged for her and had also had a personal Birthday message in icing to her we were so touched. The villa was impeccably clean and was made to feel like a home from home. In each room there were complimentary robes which were a perfect touch. The pool area was fabulous and each evening when we got home we would have a glass of wine on the Lanai with the pool light show going, perfect way and setting to end our full and active days. Perfect villa, perfect owners and cannot wait to go back again sometime in the future. Thank you Mike and Marita for everything you are both very special.

Ann, Delroy and their family will be staying with us for the third time next year and it is always a pleasure welcoming them back again. We are proud of the fact that so many of our first time guests decide to come back and stay with us again in future years and never take this for granted. We continually change or upgrade certain aspects of the home to ensure that our guests continue to receive the highest quality accommodation available within the Davenport area. Thanks Ann for your kind comments.

Mike and Marita's home is very welcoming and perfectly located! We brought our six kids and one Grandma with us to Florida for the kids, and my, first trip to Disney World. Needless to say being close is great but space is important as well. This home provided that. We could sit down to a family meal but still everybody had their own space to retreat to. The pool was a huge hit with the younger kids and the game room was fun for all of us!! Grandma had the master suite with the bathroom leading onto the pool and we had the other. I wish our time there had been a little longer so we could have had more time to just sit by the pool and enjoy! However, we had a full week and we were in the perfect location for it. Everything you could want is with a few minutes drive. Everything you need, minus the food, is provided for you. The home is beautiful and Mike and Marita were so very flexible and made our vacation possible with their patience and understanding. We were not sure it would all work out for a spell there, but their kindness really warms the heart. Thank you for opening your home and your hearts to our family. We look forward to visiting again!!

It was a real pleasure to have Jennifer, Earl and their family stay at Tuscanpines our Florida home especially when for a while it seemed that they would not be able to make it. We believe it is very important to be as flexible as possible to help people through problematic times in order to take a holiday at our home and it is so comforting to us to know that when they arrived they had a great time. We would be delighted to have them stay with us again. We are very lucky in having many past visitors to our home wishing to return in the future. Many now feel like friends!
The house was more than we had expectet. Big, nice and clean. Wonderfull.
We can only say we will be coming back.
Response from Mike & Marita Phillips - 03/21/2012
Our home was recommended to Jens and his golfing friends by associates from his local golf club in Denmark. Jens was a pleasure to deal with during the booking arrangements and we would be very happy to have him and his friends return to our home in the future so that they can experience more of the fabulous golf courses to be found in the local area. I would like to thank him for respecting our home.
Our guests regularly say that our award winning home exceeds their expectations and this makes all the personal effort which we put into making our home special for our guests worthwhile.
The most outstanding Villa in all of Florida
This Villa is certainly one of the best in the area. The amenities are outstanding and the location is centrally located so that just about anything you need is within minutes of accessability. The rooms and dining areas are really nice and everything in the Villa is comfortable. Mike and Marita have provided everything needed to help you enjoy your time there. If anyone is looking for an outstanding place to stay while in Florida, then this Villa will help you enjoy your vacation. Read more

David and his family really needed this Florida holiday. We were delighted it finally came together and that they had such a wonderful time.
David was fantastic to deal with as the party leader and I know that we both appreciated the honest, friendly relationship which developed between us prior to his stay.
As owners we would be delighted to have David and his family stay at Tuscanpines again in the future.
David's personal comments to us and this review is what makes sharing our very special home with our guests all the worth while.

After visiting Orlando three times a year for the last several years,we have now found our perfect accomadation. Everything is first class, the bungalow is very light and airy and with the pool being south facing it benefits from every bit of sunshine. The standard of the facilities and the attention to detail from both Mike and Marina and the Management Company is second to none. As confirmation of our total satisfaction we have already reserved for our forthcoming visits in 2012 / 2013 / 2014

David and Margaret heard about our Florida home through friends/neighbours who have themselves stayed on two occasions at our villa Tuscanpines. We were delighted to accept future bookings from them up to 2014. The quality of our home and our personal service to guests has always been of the upmost importance to us and will continue to be so. We regularly visit our home and this helps us to maintain the standards which we expect our guests to experience.

A wonderful villa
Mike & Marita's villa is absolutely beautiful. It is beautifully decorated, yet warm, inviting, and comfortable. You enter a huge open floor plan, with wonderful cathedral ceilings and light beaming down from a skylight! Loved the beautiful nautical decor with blue and creme colors in the main living area! The villa is spacious! The bathroom in the grand master bedroom is huge. The pool area is private with a relaxing spa and the children thought they were still in Disney World with the pool lighting display at night! A safety gate was provided around the pool to safeguard our younger children! We can't say enough about the kindness and concern Mike showed us from start to finish! He made sure all of our questions were addressed, provided excellent communication (especially when dealing between two different countries), and communicated a sense of caring about our travel arrangements, and our overall stay in Florida! He provided a wealth of information! The villa is perfectly located near everything! Thank you Mike & Marita for sharing your lovely Florida home and making our stay pleasurable! Fondly, Krista & John Wise and (Michael, David, & Ethan) and Peter & Kara Tzanetis and (Kyle & Kevin) P.S. The games room was a huge hit with the children! Read more

Thank you for such a wonderful review. It is much appreciated and such comments always spur us on to provide similar experiences for future guests to Tuscanpines our Florida home.
John was brilliant to liaise with during the booking and organisation of their accommodation. Although many of our guests came from the UK when we started out we have received many bookings from the USA, Canada and Europe in recent times and making their booking arrangements has proved very straight forward.
Customer relations and guests satisfaction is at the forefront of everything we do or try to achieve. Nothing is too much trouble. Come stay with us and experience this yourself. Krista, John and his party will always be welcome back at our home.
Beautiful home, well equipped and organized.A well maintained, good sized pool and spa.Outdoor space enclosed, so no flys or bugs! Excellent location-we would visit the theme parks early in the morning, come back for lunch, swim or nap and then return in the evening when it was cooler.A local supermarket just a few minutes away. Easy access to Orlando airport.
Lots of information for theme parks,things to do available at the villa.
Response from Mike & Marita Phillips - 08/15/2011
We are so pleased that you had a great time with the family based at our home in Florida. It was a pleasure to have the family stay at our home and we would like to thank you for making all the arrangements so easy.
We do make as much information as we can available at the villa in the form of leaflets etc so that guests are provided with lots of ideas of things to do, even for the regular visitors.
Visit again anytime!

Quite simply superb
The service that we received from placing the booking to arriving at the property was the best we have ever experienced when booking a holiday. Mike arranged us being picked up at the airport,our car hire and he provided us with most comprehensive information pack I have ever seen. He really did take all the stress out of the holiday. When we arrived at the property we had anticipated a nice holiday home but our jaws dropped when we how nice the property was. It was fitted out to a superb standard and it provided us with everything we needed. Its difficult to single out one part of the property but the whole family loved the pool. The location of the property was fantastic. We were close to Berry town centre and Disney was easy to reach within 10-15 mins. It really provided us with a fantastic base for our Orlando holiday.

amazing florida villa
From the moment we opened the door to the villa we were all amazed by how fantastic it was we enjoyed lazy afternoons around the superb pool and spent many an evening in the games room playing pool and basketball.
All the bedrooms were finished to a high standard and the master bathroom with its walk in shower and corner bath was amazing,
The location was perfect to visit all the main florida attractions we spent a day at islands of adventure so my daughter could visit harry potter world which she loved.
There are restaraunts close by we visited applebys twice were the food is good and very resonable with drinks two for one all night every night which was an added bonus publix supermarket is also next door.
We cant thank mike and marita enough for letting us stay in there beautiful florida home and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a fantastic holiday and we hope to return soon

Ian, Karen and family stayed with us in June 2011. I have to thank them for submitting this fantastic review on behalf of Marita and myself. Every time we visit our home in Florida we pinch ourselves thinking about how lucky we are to own such a wonderful villa. We try to think of new ideas which will make us and our visiting guests feel that little bit extra special. We always strive to ensure that our home is looked back upon as a very important part of a holiday and that Tuscanpines remains the number one choice of villa for our returning guests.
It is reviews such as this which have recently contributed to us being awarded by Flipkey the "Winner 2011 Top vacation Rental in Davenport" and us personally to receive an excellent rating by both Flipkey and Trip Advisor.
The best villa in Florida
Tuscan Pines Villa is the best villa we have ecer stayed in in Florida and we have been over 16 tinmes in the last 10 years. Mike and Marita Phillips bend over backwards to make you feel totally at home and to enjoy a most wonderful holiday. They cannot do enough for you. the villa is absolutely fantastic, judging by Floridian standards which is high, it beats all of the others. The villa ia amazing, spotless, light and airy every conenience you could imagine, beautiful pool and spa which is private and looks out over the trees, just absolutely idyllic, we will stasy there again and again. Thank you so much Mike and Marita, absolute first class accommodation, amenities, location and client service, Paula x Read more
Response from Mike & Marita Phillips - 07/17/2011
As seasoned, experienced travellers to Florida Paula and her husband were looking for holiday accommodation of the highest quality. Having paid an inspection visit to our home Paula immediately booked our villa for their next visit, a 3 week stay. Paula was a joy to liaise with during the arrangements and it is fantastic to hear that she was so pleased with what we were able to offer. They appreciated the efforts which we make to provide the best experience we can for our guests. They respected our home and we will always welcome them back at any time in the future. Thank you for such glowing comments. Mike.
From the moment we booked this villa with the owners we knew we had made the right decision because the owners were so friendly and approachable.
When we arrived we were stunned by the size and beauty - the pixs on website really don't do it justice! All the rooms were lovely and spacious, especially our room with the en-suite which was fab.The games room and the pool was a hit with the party which consisted of myself and my husband, our best friend and her 13 and half yr old daughter and my parents who flew down from NY to stay for a few days. One of the biggest things for me was the free wi-fi and being able to stay in contact with friends.
The villa is within reasonable distance of all the places we visited so we were never too far away and the pool was a welcome activity when we got home after a hot day out. The supermarkets, takeaways and restaurants are all nearby so you could literally just pop out to the shops at any time of the day.
So basically yes this is a wonderful villa to rent, and it is well worth the money and experience. If the chance came up again we wouldn't hesitate to book this villa again.
So go on book it, you won't regret it!

We would be delighted to have Dawn, David and any of their friends and family stay at "Tuscanpines" in the future. Dawn was fantastic to deal with when arranging their stay. Thank you Dawn for that and your very kind comments which are always much appreciated.
Dawn had lots of questions about her trip which we tried to answer as best we could. We have built up a great deal of local knowledge and try to use this for the benefit of all our guests.

Florida sun and Disney days
Mike and Marita's home just off us 27 is conveniently located close to all the theme parks, restaurants and other amenities (supermarkets and shops etc)
The house is huge and immaculately presented. Everything you need is there including a swimming pool, hot tub and sports room!
We cannot recommend the house highly enough and would hope to be able to return again in the future. Remember to book early as the house is very popular and booked for most weeks in 2011.
There were excellent communications with Mike and Marita and they provided a very detailed information pack prior to the holiday.
As a family, we enjoyed some hot Florida sun.It was unusually hot for February (86F) - the weather channel reported the hottest day since October 2010!

We were 2 families with total of 11 people (2 babies), 12 nights, and in short I can describe it as: a "perfect holidayâ€ that one of the main reason was Marita and Mike's villa.
As my daughter wrote in the guest book - "I would prefer to stay in the villa, playing in the games room and in the swimming poolâ€.
There is lots of advantages -
The facility itself: very well maintained, give you the feeling of new, like you are the 1st one to visit. equipped with all of your needs and all you can think of. one story and big enough to contain 10 grownups. very cozy and comfortable.
The support of mike and Marita: which escorting you as much as you need even though they are abroad - Directions, ideas, tips etc.
The location: located very close to Disney parks, which allows you to take a break at home during the intensive day. close to all restaurants and supermarkets you need and more.
Suggestion - during winter time staying, ask for the pool heating, cause even in the coldest days in Florida (which are cold), the pool and Jacuzzi are very useful.
Excellent place to stay in.
Thanks a lot Marita and Mike.

This is the first time that we have had guests stay who currently live in Europe outside of the UK. Shaly was fantastic to communicate with and it was an absolute pleasure to organise the accommodation for them. What a nice guy! We would without hesitation have Shaly and his family/friends back at any time in the future. They showed great respect and appreciation for our home and the personal service that we try to provide to all guests. Thank you so much for your kind comments Shaly. Happy New Year to you and yours.

Kevin and his family were a pleasure to deal with. During their stay Polk County changed the refuse collection system for the county and Kevin was more than happy to help facilitate that change over which we very much appreciated. We would be happy to have them stay again in the future and thank them for their kind comments..

A plush, warm & friendly Villa in a beautfil setting and area.
Your holiday starts when you enter the gates into Tuscan Hills. It has an electronic number which opens the cast iron gates. A quick drive round the estate to no. 703 - your Villa. The surrounding areas of Tuscan Hills is simply perfect. When you enter the Villa, 'wow' is an understatement. The large ceilings give the Villa a very spacious feel. I stayed at the Villa with my Husband, Daughter, Mum and Dad, Sister and Bro in Law and their 2 children. A holiday home for 9. It has a games room which all boys loved, especially the 'big' boys. A spacious kitchen, a huge huge cooker, 3 beautiful double bedrooms, all with their own en suite and 2 twin bedrooms. All bedrooms were decorated to good taste and the beds were very comfy. A 50" TV with lots of Dvds and games, so there's plenty for all ages. The pool area is fab. We didn't spend alot of time in the Villa due to our hectic holiday visiting all the parks, but the time we did have was spent in the pool. The jacuzzi was my favourite, it was like getting into a hot bath at home, even hotter. There's plenty of kiddies floats and balls to play with, so safety has been thought about.
The Villa certainly played a huge part of our holiday, and we are so greatful to Mike and Marita for letting us stay there. It is truely home from home. It feels like home and looks like home, and it certainly was treated like a home with lots of respect for everything.
This Villa would definately be highly recommended. We can't wait to go back and visit again.
The Villa is situated very near to most parks with a supermarket near by.
What more would you need!

This was one of the first bookings that we accepted having decided to rent out our new home back in March 2008. They booked 2 years in advance and we are delighted that they all had a wonderful stay. We have kept in touch with the family throughout their wait to visit our home and always tried to answer or find answers to their questions. They intend to visit again in the future and we will be delighted to accommodate them again. We would like to thank all the family for respecting our home and looking after it so well. Very best wishes from Mike & Marita. x

Ann, Delroy and family have stayed at our home in 2009 and 2010 now and it has been a pleasure having them stay. We really appreciate that they and many other previous guests now regard our Florida home as their holiday home. This loyalty on behalf of our guests is never taken for granted as we continually try to improve our home and the facilities we are able to offer our guests during our regular visits. Our previous guests appreciate the genuine 5 star facilities we provide and the cost to us of being able to do this. Looking forward to your next visit Ann.

Superb villa in a superb location
There were seven of us staying in the villa including my grand daughter who was only four and a half years old. The villa has so much space and we never felt on top of each other. We stayed for just over two weekd and we had a wonderful time. The villa had everything we could possibly want and more. Of course the pool was so welcoming in the terrific heat after a day in the parks. The villa is close to all the major theme parks and ammenities. If we were to go back to Orlando we would definitiely choose to stay athis villa. Thank you Mike and Marita for all your help in organising our holiday and thank you for allowing us to use your wonderful home.

Keith & Carol were one family that chose to view our home the year before booking with us. We completely understand why someone might wish to do this and we were happy to arrange their inspection visit with our local management company.
Keith & Carol were delighted with our home and on their return to the UK immediately booked for the following year with us. They have been model guests and we would definately welcome them back to our home in years to come.
Rachel - Very happy visitor
Wonderful place to stay
Ten of us stayed at this villa and it was plenty big enough - with bedrooms for all and no one sleeping on the sofa. Marvellous villa with a nice sized pool and jacuzzi. The men really enjoyed the games room. Villa was clean on arrival and directions supplied by Mike & Marita were clear. No problems at all during our stay and if there had been there were clear directions as to who to contact. Nice personal touches with Mike contacting us at the villa the day after our arrival and on our return home.
The pool area has the sun from early morning to late in the evening, with only a view of the trees behind it - no one overlooking you from another villa.
Have stayed in a few Florida villas, but this is the best so far. Not far from disney, supermarkets, places to eat etc.
Would definitely recommend this villa to anyone thinking of visiting Florida - we would definitely book again. Read more
Response from Mike & Marita Phillips - 10/08/2010
This was the first occasion that we had 10 adults stay at our home and it is comforting to know that Rachel, her family and guests found our villa plenty large enough for them all. The privacy and locality of our home was a prime reason for us choosing it above other villas we inspected. We are very happy when our guests note and appreciate the level of customer service we try to provide to all our guests. Thank you Rachel for taking the time to make your thoughts available to others considering staying with us in future. You will be welcomed back any time.
Superior Villa with Fantastic Facilities
This is by far the best villa we have stayed in in over twenty years of holidays in Florida
The way the villa is presented at check-in time is breathtaking, and the Managment company are first rate.The facilites that this villa has would suit verybody Young and Old!
This can only lead to the best holiday anybody can have Read more

John, Pauline and their friends were a pleasure to deal with. John has been enjoying his golf in Florida for years and it is so satisfying to receive such high praise from a "seasoned" visitor. He has promised to come back in the future and we will look forward to it.
John gave us some very useful information about playing golf locally which we will pass on to future guests. Thank you!
Fantastic Villa, Holiday experience
I stayed in this villa in June 2009 for 2 weeks and the location and the accommodation were 110%.
The villa is of a high standard with up to date amenities and everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Like being home from home.
Pool area is child friendly and location is great as not overlooked and views of pine forest.
Bedrooms and living space all large enough to accommodate a large party without feeling like you are on top of each other.
Close to restaurants and shops and greatly placed for the Disney Parks and Sea World.
Would recommend to anyone visiting Florida.
Response from Mike & Marita Phillips - 09/18/2010
Geoff and Pam live fairly close to us so it was helpful that they could call around to our home and discuss their trip. We were able to organise their car hire for them and advise on where best to obtain their park tickets. It was a pleasure to have them stay at our home and we keep in contact with them. Thank you for the kind comments.
The Bearsted Gang
House was wonderful and every need catered for. Very comfortable and beautifully presented. There was plenty of room for two families. Pool overlooking pine forest was very peaceful and relaxing. Would love to go back and visit again as we all had a brilliant time. More than a home from home! Read more
Response from Mike & Marita Phillips - 08/24/2010
John and Sue we were delighted to have you stay at our villa and would welcome you back at any time. Glad that you enjoyed "our more than a home from home," as this is the experience that we do our best to achieve for all our guests.
The Murphy family
Tuscanpines "What you see is what you get" and more besides
Mike and Marita the villa owners provide one of the best customer experiences you could wish for. We booked the holiday a year in advance and their advice, helpfulness and customer service was second to none. Mike is passionate about the holiday villa and will happily go that extra mile to ensure that all of your needs are met, within reason of course.
The villa is very much a home from home, however with a touch of sophistication. All on one level which suited us as my wife has some mobility problems. A great advert for those of you who are travelling with family or friends with disabilities or maybe in their twilight years and have difficulty with stairs etc., The rooms were all tastefully decorated and immaculate. The pool was fab as was the games room which our young children and older boys enjoyed immensely. The pictures and video tour that you can access via the website are great, but even better when you walk through the front door!
We normally head for HYW 192 near 535/medieval times, however opted for HYW 27 which was much nearer to the disney parks. As seasoned travellers to Florida we all prefer Universal Studios parks and International Drive for dining out and therefore had to drive a little bit further. However this did not take away from the fact that HWY 27 has a lot to offer and glad that we experienced the beautiful scenary and particularly Berry Town Centre, especially Linskeys Bar!
Spent 4 days in Clearwater which was just heaven and would recommend at least a day out, but even better if you are able to book an apartment for a few days and really experience what this beach front has to offer. Just park the car for the whole of your stay. Absolute bliss!
Would I return to Tuscanpines ? You don't even need to ask.
Mike and Marita - all good wishes for the future and many thanks from the Murphy family, Scotland Read more

We are not normally lost for words but we do not feel we need to say anything other than thank you very much Bill & Christine.
But there again - A very friendly family, appreciated all that we could do for them and needless to say we would welcome them back to our home at any time in the future as Bill knows.
Tickhill, Doncaster, South Yorkshire
This villa surpassed all of my expectations in terms of comfort and cleanliness. There are more than enough facilities in the villa to keep everyone amused ranging from the relaxing pool area to the games room. The location was fantastic and it was easy to visit the local attractions of Orlando, especially Disney. I will definitly be using this villa for our future holidays to Florida, and would highly recommend it, to ensure that your trip to Florida is as amazing as ours. Read more
Response from Mike & Marita Phillips - 08/14/2010
Simon we were delighted to accomodate you and your party and look forward to the time when you are able to visit again. We purchased the villa not only for the great location but to give everyone space to do their own thing whether that be enjoying the sun around the pool, sampling the books from the library or competing in friendlies in the Games Room!
Mike and Marita made the booking process very easy. They were helpful, accommodating and even rang whilst we were at the villa to make sure everything was okay. The villa was extremely comfortable and clean with excellent facilities: we especially enjoyed the pool area and games room. We felt very safe as it was situated in a gated community. The villa is wonderful and homely with a supermarket nearby for essentials. We have been to Florida on three previous occasions but this was by far the best villa. Read more

Having started to rent out our villa in April 2008, Neil & Julie were one of our first bookings. It was a real pleasure arranging for their family to stay at Tuscanpines. We always telephone our guests after their arrival to make sure that all is OK and they have settled in well. If Neil and Julie return in the future they will notice many changes. We are always trying to improve our home for the benefit of ourselves and our guests. Thank you for the 5 stars!
EXCELLENT - ABSOLUTE PERFECTION
Absolutely Oustanding is the only way we can describe our stay at Tuscan Pines. As frequent travellers to Florida over many years we have stayed in many villa's, Tuscan Pines is without exception the most beautifully furnsished and absolutely spotless home we have ever had the pleasure to visit. They were absolutely right in that Mike and Marita Philips have catered for your every need, it truly is home from home, you will want for nothing! The location couldn't be more perfect and so easy and close by every amenity you could wish for and all with The Mouse on the doorstep. Mike and Marita are so very friendly, they truly want you to enjoy every moment of your holiday and their beautiful home, nothing is too much trouble for them. We took friends with children on their first trip and they were in awe of the villa. We only came back a month ago and have already book for 2011...we will never again stay elsewhere, it can only ever be Tuscan pines for us from now on. Thank you so much Mike and Marita, you made our holiday the best it could ever be...a simply beautiful, beautiful villa...The best...Excellent and perfect, thank you xx Read more

When Paula first contacted us and asked to view our home whilst out on holiday in Florida we arranged for our local management company to show her and Richard around our home and the Tuscan Hills community. When they returned home they immediately booked Tuscanpines for their next visit.
Since then we have been in regular contact with Paula & Richard and popped in for breakfast on a trip to see our daughter.
Thanks for your kind comments. You know you will always be welcome at our home as long as you continue to visit Florida.
Thank you to Mike and Marita for, I could comfortable say, the best holiday we have ever been on. The Villa was just out of this world and the location perfect too - you were in the middle of everything as such and applebys became a firm favourite for evening meals! The location where the Villa was set in was also very interesting and "film-like" dare I say. We felt like Mike and Marita were there to assist whenever we needed them (even in the early hours, details of which I will not go into, they know what I am referring to!), but we felt completely at ease speaking to them with any questions etc. It was an absolute joy to have the opportunity of staying at TuscanPines and we will definitely be planning to book again soon. Our holiday and stay was also made extra special due to the fact that me and my Fiance got engaged there too :-) Thank you both very much for such a beautiful, unforgetable experience. Kindest Regards, Adam and Charlotte, Neil, Nickie and baby Chloe xx Read more
Response from Mike & Marita Phillips - 07/19/2010
Charlotte we are not usually short of something to say but WOW thank you so much for your kind comments. There were a few hair raising moments during the organisation of your holiday! It was the first time that our home was visited by a couple getting engaged and this made the organisation something that we will always remember. You know that you will be welcomed back at any time.
A Holiday to remember
What a great place to stay!
Mike and Marita helped us plan this great holiday from the first e-mail to the last.
We had such great fun in the games room and the pool, it was also really nice coming back from the parks and relaxing in the pool while the children played on the ps3 or watched cartoons on the 50in TV.
Thank you Mike and Marita for all the help you gave us and for letting us stay in your wonderful home.
Response from Mike & Marita Phillips - 07/19/2010
Nick and his family were devastated when the holiday company that they used to book their Florida holiday went into administration. We were really pleased to be able to help them in any way we could to ensure that they were still able to take a holiday in Florida. Who wouldn't have done so in similar circumstances? We were absolutely delighted that they had a wonderful holiday and Nick knows that we would welcome them back at any time in the future.
The villa was everything and more that we were promised, very spacious clean and well equiped, ideally located, close enough to all the attractions but far enough away to relax and escape the crowds Read more
Response from Mike & Marita Phillips - 07/15/2010
Richard, his family and friends were great guests. We later discovered that his friends were unsure about Florida until they arrived and now they are looking to return. That's what we like to hear! Thanks Richard.
Fantastic Stay at Tuscan Pines
We stayed at Tuscan Pines in June 2009 and there was nothing that we could fault. It was perfect in every way.
The size of the villa is amazing and I can't imagine it ever feeling cramped or full. The bedrooms are home from home with very comfortable beds and facilities.
You feel comfortable and at ease from the moment you walk in the door, as it has been decorated in a homely way. Everything you need is at hand.
The pool and surrounding area is lovely and very relaxing, the view of the pine forest, especially at sunset is 'postcard picture' and not to be missed.
A short drive to range of shops and resturants and about 15 minutes from the disney parks.
Would highly recommend this to anyone and hope to be back myself sometime soon.
There is nothing I would have changed about our stay. Read more

San Antonio, Texas
We planned this trip with one thing in mind...making memories. Mission accomplished. There is not one thing we would change...wait I lied checkout time was too early, other than that it was absolutely perfect. It was the perfect setting for all of us to be together. The house was comfortable and beautiful. It seems that the best part of the vacation for the kids was the pool. The scenery behind the pool was calming and relaxing. It was absolutely perfect for our first visit to Florida. With our experience on Tuscan Hills and our homeowner, theres no way we would do it differently, the next time we visit Florida. Downright the best decision we made for this vacation. Read more

Christina it was a pleasure for us to have you stay in our Florida home. You were great guests from an owners perspective and we would welcome you back at any time. Thank you for your kind comments.
Return stay was just as nice
Our family stayed in this fabulous villa in 2009 & 2010. It's located in safe neighbourhood and has all the amenities and space that you need.
Great communications with the owners.
Backyard and pool backs onto an orchard. Friends who stayed nearby in a nearby condo couldn't believe what we had for about the same price they paid. Read more

First class experience.
A really excellent Villa well equipped with everything that you would want to have. The owners were extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding area, they do their best to ensure that guests are so well looked after, and it works. The management in Florida were also very good, any problems were sorted out quickly and with out any fuss. The Villa is in an excellent gated community very close to Disney and all the other parks. Plenty of eateries close by as well. I would heartily recommend Mike & Marita's Villa..You will not be disappointed. Read more

Peter we really appreciate your comments. It is so important to us that guests receive great customer service and a detailed pre-arrival package. It is a comfort to us to know that on the rare occasion that our management company are needed that they are 100% reliable. Hope to see you back one day.
A great place to do nothing
This is a great place to relax.
We had family time. We had fun.
We had basketball competitions and games of pool
and air hockey. We played games in the swimming pool
and watched dvds on the big tv. We stayed up late and played cards then slept in.
We had breakfast on the pool deck.
When we needed help the management company were
there for us.
Our other Florida holidays were spent in the parks.
This one was not but we enjoyed it just as much.
Response from Mike & Marita Phillips - 07/15/2010
Dean and his family really needed a rest! This is what they got. When we called them at the villa it was obvious that they had settled in well and the stress of work was ebbing away! Come back if you need a rest any time.

This fabulous villa made our holiday very special.
The personal touches we recieved from mike made the planning and booking a lot easier .Mike and Marita sent lots of information leaflets about parks and restaurants ect.On our arrival we found the villa spotless and fully equiped with everthing you could possibly need and in a good location for both the parks and local amenities .The only thing wrong with the villa was that we didnt spend as much time there as the property deserved. After a long day at the parks there was nothing better than coming home for a swim in the multi coloured lit pool. Thanks Mike and Martia hope to be back soon. Read more
Response from Mike & Marita Phillips - 07/15/2010
Steven & Linda were a pleasure to deal with. We had great communication with them all through the booking process. We always keep up to date with information leaflets so they can be sent to guests prior to their holiday. If you want to escape the weather in Scotland in furure you know where to stay!

Our Trip to Tuscan Pines
We loved Mike and Marita's home! Our boys are ages 13 & 10 and they loved it just as much as us! The house was perfect! After going to the parks all day, we couldn't wait to get back to this beautiful house. We had so much fun and it was so inviting and comfortable. The house was so clean and the game room, the pool, and the hot tub were a hit!
This was our favorite family vacation! 5 stars! Read more

Andy & Sally are an example of why we get so much pleasure out of sharing our Florida home with our guests. They were so appreciative of everything we were able to offer them. It really was a pleasure dealing with them and when Sally told me of the childrens reaction when they entered our home it was all we needed. Come back any time. God bless.

Tuscan Pines... Perfect 5* Villa
The entire process of booking the villa with the owners, our stay at their beautiful villa, and the follow up call after our stay was nothing but exceptional. We were absolutely blown away with the level of comfort, attention to detail, cleanliness, not forgetting the tremendous value - made it actually hard to believe! We would without a shadow of a doubt return to what can only be considered as the perfect villa for your Florida holiday. Read more
Response from Mike & Marita Phillips - 07/15/2010
Mike had a lot of contact with Steve prior to their trip to Florida including arranging car hire on his behalf. They became very friendly and Mike still says he is going to pop in to see him one day. Another benefit of owning a villa - making new friends. Thanks for your kind comments Steve.

An outstanding Villa furnished to a very high standard
This is a beautiful villa in a peaceful but ideal location, within easy reach of 2 large supermarkets and the main interstates.The Villa itself was amazing, it had every possible item you could think of, we were two families of 4 of mixed ages and there was lots to do within the games room that covered the whole party. The pool was great and the children throughly enjoyed it, whilst the adults had time to chill in the Jacuzzi. As we travelled in February we chose to have the pool and Jacuzzi heated, we had one instance where we got home late one evening and had put the children to bed and decided to jump in the Jacuzzi, no sooner had I jumped in I jumped back out again, we are not quite sure what happended that night with the heating of the Jacuzzi as we had left it covered as advised but it was a one off and we never had any other problems, but believe me if your travelling out of season I would definately recommend you pay for the heating of the pool as its worth every penny! Initially we weren't sure how two families would get on where the ages were so different but with the villa being so roomy, everyone had their own space. Our children enjoyed it so much after paying a vast amount of money for park tickets on most occassions we were asked by the children if they could go back to the Villa to play in the pool! There isn't anything I could possibly criticise about the booking of the villa, the communication between ourselves and the owners of the Villa itself was excellent and very informative.
This villa genuinely cannot be faulted in any possible way!
We will defiantely be going back there, but this time we'll stay without paying all the money for the water and theme parks and just make the most of the villa. Read more
Response from Mike & Marita Phillips - 07/15/2010
Amanda is right you do need pool heating between November and April. Many guests like to order it in May/early June and October as well. We do pride ourselves on our customer service and the information which we provide to guests. It is very rewarding when this is appreciated as it was by Amanda. The 2 families were excellent guests and we would welcome them back any time. Thanks for your kind comments Amanda.
