What Past Guests Are Saying
Great vacation home!
We stayed for a week and this vacation home gave us the feeling of being right at home each night we came back from the theme parks. We had no problems locating the place and was able to get many restaurants and shops close by. Absolutely will come back next year!!! Thank you Julie for having us stay here. We all had a wonderful time.

An amazing family holiday!!!
My family and I had planned this family get-away over a year ago and looked at several potential holiday villas in the Kissimmee area and decided upon Belles palace and we were all so very pleased that we did. from the very beginning Julie Parkinson proved to be a wonderful person to deal with and could not have been more helpful from the advise given at the very beginning right up until we returned home. The villa was all that we had expected it to be and more and although we were eleven people in total (including our five grandchildren) we never felt as though we were "on top of each other." The accomodation itself, the location and the amenties all combined to make this a true holiday to remember! We all have said that we would love to go back and maybe we will in 2015 when my wife reaches the grand old age of (?). I leave you to work out what that might be but a clue might just be that I am 70 this year and she is two years younger than me! Bells Palace comes highly recommended by tyhe Marchant family
Our wonderful holiday home from home
Well this was a fantastic house to stay at. We wanted for nothing,Julie was great she called us when we arrived to make sure everything was 100 percent right for us. The bedrooms were amazing I now want the same beds in my house. The kitchen was fully equipped even down to egg cups. The games room kept the kids happy for hours while the pool kept everyone happy the whole time. The pictures go nowhere near what it's really like you need to see it for real to fully understand what we mean amazing fantastic a dream house. We can't wait to go back but book early as the calender is always full. Thank you Julie for letting us stay in your wonderful house. It made the holiday, not just the parks. Windsor palms resort was an excellent family resort and close to everything. Very well kept and we felt totally secure in this gated community. The kids loved the community pool meeting other kids and didn't have to worry about them. The cinema was great offering 3d films. I was introduced to a great film despicable me, by the kids.
Belle's Palace met all my expectations.
This was my first experience in working with a owner directly; therefore, I felt a little nervous. However, Julie, the owner, was a delight to work with and made the whole process so easy. The home was exactly as advertized. The house was just as beautiful and accomodating as the pictures indicated. Checking in was such an easy process as well. The location was perfect for visiting all the Disney World parks. We were able to reach our park destination each day within a few minutes. I especially loved the "home-away-from home" atmosphere that we enjoyed during our stay. I will be recommending not only Belle's Palace, but the Flipkey process to all my friends and family.
Response from Julie Parkinson - 01/08/2013
Thank you Linda for taking the time to review your vacation at Belle's. I am so happy you found working with Flipkey & the owner directly a good experience & will be recommending the service. Family vacations should be about wonderful memories & I sure your Grandchildren will remember theirs.
Take care, Julie

Terrific property, great location, and brilliant service!
We were a group of 6 adults and 4 children having a family vacation. The property and Julie's personal attention exceeded our expectations. Julie made a point of calling during our stay to ensure that everything was OK and the location was perfect. The central location mad it possible for us to visit both atlantic and Gulf coasts and the close proximity to the theme parks really cut down our driving time. We would have no hesitation in staying here again. We really felt at home!
North Babylon, New York
Beautiful House, Excellent attention, Great Location
The house is just as it appears in pictures - if not nicer.
The location near the parks and within the gated community itself is absolutely ideal. It's also within 5 minutes to about a dozen top notch dining options.
Julie and her team responded to our needs in a quick, professional manner.
Response from Julie Parkinson - 11/08/2012
Paul I appreciate you taking the time to write about your family vacation at Belle's. Trust all is well with you & your family in New York after Sandy.
Thank you very much for being great guests & hope you will return to stay again.
The McDonald Family
Wonderful stay at Belle's Palace
My family & I recently stayed at Belle's Palace and we were very impressed. The house is very comfortable and has all the amenities you could possibly need. Julie is very personable and made the booking experience very easy. I would highly recommend staying at this house for your vacation to the Orlando/Kissimmee area.
Belfast, Northern Ireland
First Class Large Family Group Size Villa
An excellent, very spacious and well equipped property. The pool was large and was a particular highlight for our grandchildren as was the well eqquipped garage/playroom. We were close to all Orlando attractions and this was an excellent base. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to others.
Perfect place to stay!
Julie was absolutely great to rent from. She was super fast to respond to any questions and went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was perfect. The house is beautiful and has everything you could possibly need. It is quite close to Disney and it was nice to have the option of taking the shuttle bus to the parks. I would highly recommend this home to anyone who is looking at vacationing in the Disney area. Thank you, Julie, for making out stay magical!!!
Reilly / Bayfield Family
A wonderful base for a very special large family holiday
Eleven family members, out of a total party size of twenty-one, stayed at this beautiful home for a very special two weeks. We had initially planned to use the Clubhouse for gatherings, but found that Julie's fabulous house was spacious and comfortable enough for us all to meet and spend quality time together. The pool was a particular draw for the ten children - shallow enough to be safe for the young ones, but deep enough at one end for family games.
Julie herself was a godsend. Incredibly helpful and efficient, she helped us with all aspects of our holiday planning and also remained in contact throughout our stay, to help with any queries. What a star!
Home away From Home
This house was perfect for our extended family Disney vacation. Julie Parkinson was always quick to answer questions and fix a minor problem that we had during our stay. Our television wasn't working properly and she went out of her way to get it fixed.
It was nice to be able to swim in the evenings and fix some of our own meals. The house had anything you could think of from night lights to kitchen supplies to toys for the kids!
It was about a 10-15 minute drive to Disney each day.
The O'Brien family
Belle's Palace was amazing. What a beautiful, well kept home. This house is equipped with everything families could possibly need. We stayed at Belles Palace with our nine children who range in age from 2 years old to 18 years old and there was something there to keep all of the children happy. From the pool and jacuzzi, to the private game room, filled with pool toys and games for all ages, to the Disney themed rooms, and club house game room, we remained very busy yet there was time to relax in the heated spa and pool after our long days at the parks. The house is kept very clean and it is stocked with essentials. Julie is very attentive and made our stay comfortable. I would definitely love to stay at Belles palace again. In fact, none of us wanted to leave. I highly recommend this vacation house to anyone staying in the area with their family. Loved it!
This property really is as good as the promotional materials say
We took a family vacation to Disney - two young children, two grandparents and one uncle. Belle's Palace hardly felt like a rental. Beautifully furnished and maintained. All the bedrooms were of top quality and the living-dining room-kitchen area was bright and well put together.
The pool area is a bit exposed since the house backs onto a street and the community center. The hedge is a pretty good screen.
Location provides good access to Disney and the south side of Orlando. Close to I-4. About 20 minutes drive from MCO.
The grounds are perfectly maintained. We had to call the service company for a minor issue and their response was timely and completely professional.
Overall, a superb experience.

A Wonderful amazing Place
When we were looking for a house to rent in Orlando for ourselves, our daughter, son-in-law and 4 grandchildren we went on several sites and came upon "Belles Palace". We rented condo's before and when we arrived the places were not like the pictures. When we arrived at "Belles Palace" we were amazed to see the house was even nicer than the pictures. We even received a phone call the next day from Julie welcoming us and asking if we needed anything. The house had everything.
Being right in with Windsor Palms made the area extra special. The grandkids loved going to the theatre, playing the games, and going to the park. My daughter and her husband loved the idea that it was situated so close to Disney and other parks. It is in an ideal area close to stores and restaurants.
Unfortunately, we were there when the weather dipped to 30 degrees and the furnance stopped working. With a phone call to Paul and Julie the problem was fixed within an hour. A temporary thermostat was put on which gave us all the heat we needed but poor Julie was up all night worrying we were freezing. Julie phoned again the next morning to see if we were okay and I assured her everything was great.
We would definitely stay at Belles Palace again and have spread the word to family and friends what a terrific place to stay. Julie is a remarkable lady who is wonderful to work with and makes sure your stay in incredible.
Response from Julie Parkinson - 01/13/2012
Hi George & Nancy,
It was lovely to get to know you both, it makes me so happy to know you all had a great time.
Hope you return again one day, take care Julie.

Amazing warm, clean and close to all attractions.
All the guests were very happy and will certainly be our choice again in Orlando.
Response from Julie Parkinson - 12/18/2011
Good to hear all guests enjoyed their stay & yes you were very lucky with the temperature for Dec, Florida is know as the Sunshine State. Looking forward to your return visit.
A Magical holiday in a Magical House
We were an extended family of 11 people and we stayed in Belles-Palace for 3 weeks, The house itself is so close to the airport and the Parks,even shops were nearby. Belles Palace is even better than my own home, the beds were to die for, the kitchen had everything you need and more. The pool and spa were glorious and the surroundings were maitained beautifully. This house caters for Grandparents down to infants. Dealing with the owner was joy and nothing was too much bother. The only negative thing about Belles Palace is when you have to pack your bags and leave, my children cried all the way to the airport until I promised we would return again.
the Taylors from Bolton, England
home from home with the sunshine and luxury of a pool
the house was located in a brilliant area, handy for shops, eating out and only minutes from all the theme parks. there was everything you needed in the house, only thing we looked for was 'egg cups' we couldn't buy any either, the americans don;t do boiled eggs!! had a wonderful 2 weeks only complaint is it wasn't long enough!
Response from Julie Parkinson - 10/08/2011
Glad you all enjoyed your stay at Belle's. I am next over at the house March 2012 & will make sure I pack 6 egg cups just for you lol.
Thanks for staying & being wonderful guests hope you return someday.

As this was our first time in a rented home in Florida, you can imagine that we were a little apprehensive, but after staying at the beautiful Belles Palace it has changed our views immensely, it was a Palace by name and we (our family) had the time of our lives, it has everything anyone needs and more.
Julie was of a great help so thankyou again Julie for all you did for us and we look forward to staying in your home again sometime in the near future.
Belles-Palace is a luxury Villa in a perfect location for all the theme parks and access to the I4.The villa is in a "gated community" so you feel very safe.The club house,and its many amenities are nearby.
The villa is luxurious,yet homely,much thought has been taken into everything that the guests might want or need,and is off the highest quality.
Julie is only a phonecall away,and queries or problems are resolved immediately.
My family and I look forward to a further visit.
Response from Julie Parkinson - 09/21/2011
Lovely to hear you all had a great time & hope you return again someday with your family. I am always happy to help all my guests in anyway I can either via e-mail or telephone, glad I could be of some assistance with the problems you were having with your flight delay.
Palace it was!!
We had 2 groups in this complex. The other group stayed in the exact same house down the street. Our house was 10 times nicer in every way, It was beautifuly funished, and it had every amenity that a house should have. The other house was bland and old, gross furniture. I will not only recommend this house. I will tell everyone I come across that they should stay here. If we ever go back to florida I will schedle my trip around the availability of this particular home.
Our stay at Belles Palace
We were astounded as we walked through the door and was still astounded when our vacation was over Belles Palace had everything and more that we could have ever needed. The booking was extremely smooth right from the start to getting through the door i could not believe it. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. The upgrades you have done are amazing and show how much pride you take into looking after us guests we will be booking again with you very shortly and look forward to staying at Belles palace again. Belles palace is so close to Disney we came home three times in one day and was greatly appreciated when we arrived back to magic kingdom at night for the fire work display only to realize we had left our tickets at home but not a problem. May i also take this opportunity in commenting how sparkling clean and organized Belles palace is I have never stayed somewhere so perfect and I can't seem to thank you enough, my daughter wanted to stay and never leave. It was your photographs that caught my eye and I am so glad they did it certainly stands up to its name. Thank you again Kind regards Lisa Jones and family x
Simply the best!
Such a nice, comfortable, calm place to stay! It is clean, immaculately maintained, spacious, and has every amenity you could imagine. The pool is wonderful. Mrs. Parkinson is a delight to talk to. The house is very close to Disney (maybe 10 mins), a little further from Universal (about 20 mins), but still within an easy drive. There is a spectacular beach a little over an hour away (Canaveral National Seashore). The gated community is wonderful. But the house is so nice, we only went to the clubhouse once. Belles Palace is a welcome rest from the crowds at the parks. It was restful, spacious, simply wonderful. We hated to leave! Mrs. Parkinson is so nice, and handles every detail. You really do feel like you're staying in a good friend's house. Truly a delight!

A superb villa
the attention we received from julie was first class nothing was too much trouble and she gave us lots of information on local attractions etc.
the house is in a superb south facing position, immaculate with everything you are likely to require for your vacation.
its a gated property, very secure with lots of on site facilities for all ages. extremely well situated for all parks.
we loved the homely feel to the property/ will definitely visit again in 2011
Great Stay at Belle's Palace
We just returned from a wonderful stay at Belle's Palace. We rented this property on line and read the posted reviews and were impressed. I must say we were not disappointed.
The owner's Julie and Rodger are the most gracious hosts and cannot do enough to make your planning and stay a pleasant one. It is obvious that they care to make you happy and also make sure that their property is inviting as it is very well maintained.
The property is located within about a 10-12 minutes drive to all the Disney Parks and there are numerous restaurants and shopping available within about 5 minutes.
As noted above the property is fantastic. There were eleven of us on vacation and the property is spacious enough that you never feel like you are in each others way. Also the advertisement on the amentities is not misleading as there is everything mentioned plus more.
If you are going to Disney check to see if this property is available and if so do not hesitate to book it as you wiill not be disappointed.
There was only one concern during our trip and it concerned the air conditioning which is controlled by the owner. It was set at a temperature which was very comfortable during the day however while sleeping it did tend to get warm as the temperature outside was cooler and it did not go on as often. Upon my return I contacted Julie and advised and she said that she would look into the matter and make any necessary corrections if needed.
Julie: We just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful stay at Belle's Palace. This was the first time we rented a vacation home and you were always helpful and quick to answer all of our questions.
We had seen the video and the pictures on line, but the home was bigger and better than we could have imagined.
The villa is magnificent. We had everything that we needed. The location of the villa was perfect because it is directly across from the clubhouse and we always felt safe in the gated community.Being only 10minutes to Disney World was a bonus.
We absolutely loved Belle's Palace and would highly recommend it to our friends and family. It is a true "home away from home". We can hardly wait to return.
Thank you again Julie for everything.
A fantastic home away from home. Loved it!
When on vacation, I want to feel like I'm home. Belle's Palace offered more than I expected. There was nothing lacking. The owner of the property is top notch. Reserving the property was a breeze, the check-in instructions were accurate and easy. When we opened the door we were all in awe. The children didn't want to leave their rooms. There was more than enough room and we didn't feel cramped at all. Everyone had their own space. The location to all the attractions was also great. I had to email the owner while there and she, who was also on vacation, responded immediately. Nothing bad to say. If you're travelling to the Orlando area and need a place with lots of rooms and bathrooms this is the place to stay. When I asked my 8 year old niece, who was sitting on her bed watching TV in her princess room, if she liked her room her response was "I love this house".
A location and a great house for families
We stayed at Belle's Palace for 2 weeks and loved it. There were 10 of us and there was plenty of space. The pool was heated to the perfect temperature and we used it daily. The 10 minute drive to Disney was a great time saver.
The extra's of strollers, some toys, and kids books were a welcome addition. The kids loved the theme rooms. We found the bed's very comfy.
We plan to be back in a couple of years and will hopefully be staying at Belle's palace again.
We have rented many vacation homes over the years, and this was absolutely the best ever. I cannot think of one thing to improve upon; the whole gated community was clean, pleasant, friendly and well-serviced, the house was spotless, the decor was lovely, every amenity was included, the rooms were charming and very comfortable, the furnishings were tasteful and the house felt like home, from the well-equipped games-room to the convenient, central kitchen. The pool was a great added bonus for the family to lounge around together during lazy hours. The clubhouse offers lots of fun for the family, although we were so happy in our own unit that we barely had time to use the clubhouse facilities! The owners were very accessible and helpful - any questions we had were answered promptly and pleasantly. I have already recommended this home to friends and relatives and I would be delighted to stay here again. A wonderful vacation experience!

Dear Jodi & Lazer,
I truly care about every guests vacation & always try my best to make your stay as perfect as possible, memories are priceless.
Thank you for recommending Belle's to your friends & family.
Hope you return one day,
Great location, great services and an exellent home
My family stayed at belles palace for Christmas this year. There were a total of 10 of us in the house and there was plenty of space for all of us. The location was great only about 10 min drive to Disney with grocery stores, restarurants and activities just down the street.
The only problem we had was that we were not previously informed of "quiet" hrs after 9pm and that the pool/hot tub pumps would turn off. Had we known this we may not have paid extra for pool heat since we didn't get much use of it.
Response from Julie Parkinson - 01/19/2011
Windsor Palms is a family resort that has a policy of quiet time in the evening were pool pumps are not allowed to run late at night. However once the pool heater is turned off the pool water temperature will remain warm for another 2-3 hours & guests are still able to enjoy using the pool.
Thanks for spending Christmas at Belle's Palace & for being great guests, hope you & your family return for another vacation soon.

Excellent Vacation Place
Wonderful place. Clean, comfortable, quiet, and close to everything, no problems. Attention to our needs and resposiveness was excellent! Highly recommend for anyone visting Orlando. I especially loved the location to the club house.
Home from Home
Belles-Palace is a real "home from home"luxurious yet homely,it was all we expected and more. Its location is perfect,only 10 minutes from all the Disney Parks,near to the interstate giving easy access to Seaworld,Universal, Tampa and the coast.
The service we received was second to none.
We enjoyed our stay and would love to return.
Cold Spring, Ky
Wonderful place to stay in the heart of Kissimmee. So close to the parks and other wonderful attractions. House had everything one could thing of needing on a vacation. Wish we could have stayed even longer.
Lovely Vacation Location!
We were thrilled with our recent stay at this location. Julie was wonderful and showed every consideration for our comfort. The setting was beautiful, house reasonably maintained and the location superb. We will definitely come back asap...
Belles Palace - Our Home away from Home!
For the past two years, we have rented Belles Palace for an extended stay - 4 weeks in 2009 and 6 weeks in 2010. We have already booked yet another vacation at Belles Palace for 8 weeks in 2011! We would not consider renting a different home for our Florida vacation! The villa is magnificent - beautifully decorated and equipped with everything we have needed for our stays. The location of the villa is perfect because it is a corner property directly across from clubhouse, and it is a short drive to Disney World parks. The owners, Julie and Roger, could not possibly be more attentive to our needs. We are welcomed with a phone call from Julie to make sure that the villa is completely ready for our arrival. If any problem should arise, she contacts the property manager and the problem is corrected immediately. Each year, we have invited extended family to visit, and they, too, have been overwhelmed by the beauty and comfort of the villa! We absolutely love Belles Palace, and we highly recommend it as a "home away from home" and a wonderful place for a vacation in central Florida.
Had a wonderful holiday and Belles palace was great everything we needed to make it the best time ever. No worries and everything was how it should be from situation close to parks and shops. Can not wait to go back.
Orams Family Holiday
We knew what the villa was going to look like from the video, but when we arrived it was so much bigger than we could have imagined. We where a party of 10 and there was so much space, we were never under each others feet. The pool and spa was great for when we came home from a long day at the parks, and watching the wildlife in the morning. The game room was brillant for the kids and men lol. The location was ideal about 1 mile away from the main strip for eating & shopping etc, 10mins from Disney's door, 6 miles from Walmart Superstore and that was a day out in itself.
The onsite facilities were also brillant, the cinema was lovely for the kids and everyone was so friendly and always happy.
From the moment I enquired about Belles-Palace right through to the return home Julie made me feel like I had known her for years. Making sure we had everything arranged back at home and her call on the first day there was lovely, she is a lady who cares about your holiday, which is something you dont get from pre-booked holiday villas. I will recommend Belles-Palace to everyone I know who is off to sunny Florida.
Again thank you Julie for everything, looking forward to re-booking with you in the future (Oct 2011)
Orams Family Holiday
My family and I were lucky to find such a wonderful location. Belles Palace is a beautifully decorated and extremely clean home away from home. It is located close to all the parks and is in a secure gated community, which made it very easy to sleep at night.
Julie made our stay very easy with all of her help and made my family reunion fantastic. I would stay at Belles Palace anytime I visit this area again. A truly 5 star home with 5 star owners.
Thanks you for all your help with my vacation.

Outstanding facilities and comfort.!
Belles-Palace is ideally located for all the Orlando Parks. The facilities for a group of eleven people aged from 9 to 55 were excellent, with something for everyone. Having wireless network at the villa was a real plus as we were holidaying during the recent volcano cloud sagas and we could regularly check on our airline. Mrs Parkinson could not have been more helpful from when we first made contact until the end of our visit.
Maybe the one negative for us was that the aircon was not cool enough. But other things more than made up for it.!! We loved our stay.
Orlando Vacation 2010
New Brunswick, CANADA
Great Family Vacation
We have just recently returned from out family vacation to Orlando. The home was very nice and the community offered may amenities that others we have stayed with in the past did not - club house with free movie theatre and sundry shop was very convenient. It was very well situated - close to Disney exits and shopping/restuarants on the Irlo Bronson Highway. I especially liked that the house was fully equipt with all the baby items we needed - play yard, strollers, monitor, baby gates and a selection of toys which the kids enjoyed. We did experience some issues with the pool alarm which was inconvenient and the management company was unable to resolve the issue during our stay. Julie (home owner) was very nice and easy to deal with and the welcome call on our arrival was a nice touch. Would definitely consider a return visit. - Jennifer
