“Still as fantastic as ever !!”
We recently returned to Solana Retreat after a 3 year break and we have to say that we once again had the nost fantastic time. The villa has had quite a few upgrades since our last visit, especially the Games Room, we just couldnt keep the kids away from it, although it gave us adults some well earned time to relax by the pool !. It's also very handy for the Clubhouse as it's just a short stroll away. Don't forget to make use of the Clubhouse pool area as they have lots of games and things to do for the children. There was even a movie showing on a giant inflatable screen by the pool so that you could watch the film from in the pool !. The tiki bar at the pool was also a welcome new addition, where we cold have cold drinks and snacks when we had a day at the villa. Nice to see lots of new restaurants have opened nearby as well, meaning you dont have to make the trek through the traffic on 192. Although we stayed for two and a half weeks, the time went by so quickly and we are already planning another return trip next year !. Lynn & Paul were so helpful with every question that we asked and I really cant recommend them highly enough, they really have thought of everything, there are even enough sun beds by the pool for 8 people, meaning we no longer had to take turns for a lie down !. If you are looking for a luxurious place to stay near the Theme Parks (at a reasonable price as well !!) then you just can't go wrong. The Berry family

Solana Retreat Villa is a very apt name, what a retreat! Beautiful tasteful furnishings with every item you could need. My immediate impression was how fresh and clean it was. The pool was lovely and clean and pool furnishings were so comfortable and again very clean and tasteful. The service we received was excellent, everything arrived on time for our trip, even advice on best restaurants etc. If we had any question about Florida the answer was at the end of the telephone. The villa was in a good location and close to the amenities and parks. I would not hesitate to return or recommend this villa (and it's very helpful owners).

“a great holiday in a top quality villa”
This was our second visit to Solano Retreat,the villa is all you could wish for in visiting Orlando.Ideally located only a fifteen minute drive from Disney on a gated community,you really do feel at home, the rooms are all large and decorated to a really high standard,and are so bright and clean.we travelled with our two children aged 15 and 11, and we just loved returning to the villa after being at the parks,and chilling around the pool,my son especially liked playing on the full size pool table,and he felt right at home with the fact there is a playstation in the games room.The villa is so well equipped and so well looked after. The televisions have all been updated since our last visit,to flat screen plasmas, which shows the owners are constantly looking to make improvements.We spent 12 days at the villa and moved on to the Hard Rock Hotel for four nights,but on reflection we wished we had stayed at Solano as we found it so much more relaxing.We will be returning to Orlando in 2013 and we will not need to look any further for our accomodation.For anyone looking for a villa in Orlando this is the place to go.
“Fantastic Villa for a Fantastic Holiday”
Myself, my wife and family (four boys 3,6,9,10) stayed at Solana Retreat Villa during June 2011,and found the villa and the process of booking the villa first rate. I found the villa via an internet search and it seemed to be exactly what we wanted as a family, I had a couple of other questions regarding location and facilities. These were answered promptly via few e mails with the owners. Villa booked, we started to plan our holiday, the villa owners sent us some useful planning tips and contacts for flights and car hire. We actually used the car hire contact, as they were the best value. A couple of weeks before the holiday, we received a detailed pack containing everything we need to know about the villa, location, route from airport, local shops and restaurants and how to get to the parks. We found the villa was spotless, it had everything we needed for the stay. The older boys loved the games room and the younger boys couldn't believe their Disney themed bedroom complete with toys and games. There were also Dvds, Video Games and books to entertain the everyone. The rooms were spacious, kitchen, dining and TV area were great and the enclosed pool was just about the right size for our boys. Location wise, villa was part of a bigger gated resort, which had a club house with a bigger pool and gym, spent a couple of afternoons there, where they had laid on some events for the holidays. These were ok and were a bit expensive for some of the food. Villa was a about 13-15 minutes from the western entrance of the Disney complex if you go the dollar toll road route (well worth avoiding the traffic and lights), and around 25 minutes from the Universal Studios, most of this journey is on the I4 so pretty straightforward to get to. There are a number of shops, supermarkets and garages close to the resort. As a family we loved it, and if we are able to go back to Florida, we would have no hesitation about coming back to this villa.
“All the comforts of home and sunshine!!”
Fantastic villa, with all the comforts of home, plus a few extras. The villa is located in a very quiet walled compound with security gate access. After all the hustle and bustle of the theme parks and the malls, Solana Retreat is the perfect place to wind back down. Situated down the I-27, only 15-20 mins from all the Disney parks, and 30-40 mins from Sea World and Universal. You only have to turn up with your clothes, everything else is left for your use in the villa, from pool towels to guide books to kids toys. The garage has been converted into a games room with a great pool table, table football, and a PS2 games console with a selection of games. If you have younger children you may wish to bring a few of your own games for that as the ones provided are more for teenagers/adults. The villa is in very good order and well maintained/cleaned. There is a wide choice of eating establishments only a few miles down the road and quite a few large shopping places including a Publix and a Walmart Superstore not too far away. My family and I had a great time here and would thoroughly recommend anyone to stay.
An Excellent Experience
“An excellent experience”
The Villa was excellent in all ways being spotlessly clean.well decorated/furnished and offering excellent facilities - many an evening was spent in the superb games room. Although the location was tranquil and relaxing it was easily accessible to Disney World whilst restaurants of all sorts were close at hand

“Amazing Place - Great Communication”
We had a most memorable time staying at Solana Retreat with our children and grand children. Everything was just as we expected and Lynn & Paul were just so helpful in organising everything for us. The Resort facilities are excellent and so well kept. Hopefully, we would like to return again and I would highly recommend this home to anyone travelling to Orlando.

“Our Holiday of a lifetime !!”
We stayed at Solana Retreat for 3 weeks with our children and grandchildren and had the absolute holiday of a lifetime !! ... Lynn & Paul were just so helpful with everything, as we were first time visitors to Orlando, and guided us through evrything, from the flights and car hire, to where to eat and the best days to visit the parks. The villa has just everything you need with great attention to even the smallest of things. The recommendations for restaurants bars etc was fantastic, we would never have found them otherwise. The location of the villa was superb, with so many choices of where to eat and very friendly staff at the Clubhouse. We especially enjoyed the excellent games room where we had some real fun evenings together. There is a Publix Supermarket just 5 minutes away, and you must try applebees restaurant, all the grandkids loved it !!. The recommendations for restaurants bars etc was fantastic, we would never have found them otherwise... I would thoroughly recommend this Villa to anyone who is travelling to Orlando who wants all the comforts of home and more !!.
“Beautiful property,a real home from home. Can't wait to go back.”
Solana Retreat is beautifuly decorated & spotlessly clean. The villa has a great layout. The kitchen is well equipped. The lounge area is very comfortable. The bedrooms are all tastefully decorated. The pool area is large, with space for dining as well as soaking up the sun. At the back of the double garage you will find the laundry area & towels for poolside. Booking the villa was easy, Lynn was very helpful. The guests information pack was great, as well as having directions to the villa and the security system information they provided a list of local places to eat...great to get a personal recommendation. Outside the resort, just north along Highway 27 is Berry Town Centre with a Publix supermarket, Applebees restaurant, petrol station & a few other shops. Our favourite places to eat at are Diromio's Pizza and Grill-delicious food and they do deliveries and Cracker Barrell-Old Country Store for very relaxed family dining. All in all, I think Solana Retreat is a beautiful home with a great layout, in a peaceful setting yet handy for shopping and access to main routes to attractions and exploring further afield. The fact that we've been back a second time and after having stayed in other accommodation, we want to return again to Solana Retreat speaks volumes for the care and attention that Lynn and Paul have lavished on their property and continue to to pay to their customers. I can highly recommend Solana Retreat.

“My fun-packed holiday in Solana Retreat”
I have visited Floida four times and stayed in Solana Retreat for the last three. Congratulations to Lynn and Paul in creating a home from home atmosphere in their lovely villa. Everything was perfect and you can see how much effort has been put into this place to cater for your every need and to ensure your comfort. It is spotlessly clean, light and bright with very tasteful decor. The Disney bedroom is a delight for the little ones and how wonderful to have a games room for everybody to enjoy. On the few days we spent in the villa we thoroughly enjoyed the spacious pool area. Solana is right in the hub of things with shops and restaurants nearby and a ten minute drive to the theme parks where I went on all the rides even the big ones and came home feeling much younger than my 69 years!! Yes I shall certainly be going again. Thank you Lynn and Paul for three wonderful holidays you should both be interior designers!
