“Superb orlando villa - fantastic family home away from home”
This was our first ever booking with HomeAway/VRBO and we were immediately drawn by the description, photos and other reviews on the site for Lakeview House. We decided to go for it (a family of 3 adults, 2 children) and the booking process was seamless - Derek, the owner, was in constant touch and with very useful information ahead of arrival. Although our flight from the UK had a bit of a glitch (meaning we arrived in the dead of night) we found the place without issue. There is always a nagging doubt with 'owner direct' type sites that pictures can be taken to flatter, or camera angles used to conceal. However, this is completely without warrant in this case and I can categorically guarantee that what you see in the pictures is absolutely what you get in real life! Think that wonderful vista over the lake behind Mickey and Minnie framing the fountain is an illusion? Absolutely not, it's that fantastic. Think the pictures of the pool and spa look too good to be true? Well believe it, we enjoyed them to the full. Games room really that capable? Oh yes, my son and I enjoyed the pool table and the air hockey immensely. This villa was perfect, and as travellers a long way from home, it was a joy to stay in. Location was excellent - to the west end of the '192' so great for driving to the parks and in a quiet and tidy residential street. As there is no-one immediately to the right of this villa (there's a small 'inlet' from the lake) there is a 'semi-detached' feel to it which adds to the sense of open-ness and space when out the back. Facilities were superb, kitchen well appointed, TVs everywhere. Missing 'ice hockey' pucks were spotted before we arrived and dealt with proactively - this villa is clearly well managed and Derek gave us a ring mid-stay to check everything was ok. Beds were comfy and air con and fans meant the villa was always a welcome and refreshing haven at the end of tough day in the parks. It was an intense two weeks for us as a family, as we were doing the Disney and Universal 'thing' to the max but the villa was everything we hoped for and more. We whole-heartedly recommend this villa either as a base for doing the Orlando 'Madness' or simply as somewhere to stay 24/7 and soak up the sun quietly. We will certainly return, God-willing, and if you're reading this and tempted to book, go ahead and bon vacances! Thanks you Derek and Julie for sharing your home with us.

“Highly recommended from start to finish”
What a wonderful holiday we had at this lovely villa, all of our need were met to a very high standard. On the first day of our holiday we got a phonecall from Derek, the owner of Lakeview House to ask if all was well which was a lovely gesture. The villa is situated in a lovely residential area very close to all the Disney parks, shops, restaurants and entertainment. We would highly recommend Lakeview House to anyone considering a holiday to Florida and can assure them a wonderful holiday at this lovely villa. Many Thanks to Derek & Julie Houghton With Love from All the Muir Family Scotland
The home was beautiful with every accommodation a couple or family could desire. The best part was the attention to detail. The televisions in each room, with DVD players and a large selection of current DVDs, the XBOX with lots of games, and the pool table were all icing on the cake. Also, great location! Close to everything. The most amazing aspect of this rental is the price. No hotel would be close to this nice at this price.
First off, Derek has been a pleasure to deal with from our first contact. The instructions he sent to navigate to the house and gain entry were flawless. He checked in with us on our second day to see if we needed anything. The house itself is everything that is promised in his listing. It is very well maintained, very comfortable, quiet and clean. Having your own space and your own swimming pool was priceless. We did not use a lot of the extras in the house, we were too busy playing in the parks! My only minor complaint was the bed in the master bedroom, was a little firm for my liking, it is not terribly uncomfortable just firm. My adult kids enjoyed their beds upstairs. We had an issue with the kitchen sink, the property managers were there to fix it immediately. We enjoyed watching the wildlife and wild storms off the lake. We got to see the two alligators on our first day! There is an alarm on the doors out to the pool for the safety of small children, if you do not close the door within twenty seconds the alarm will go off. This is a great safety feature ( and a Florida law ) but was very nerve wracking for us because we were always trying to get in and out of the door quickly! If you are unfamiliar with the area like we were, make sure you look for a grocery store other than the local one, which is very expensive. There are many to choose from, do your research! If you are going to the park from the house there is a great back way. As you head down 192 towards Magic Kingdom, turn left onto Sherberth Road then to Osceola Parkway , this is especially great for going to the Animal Kingdom and Blizzard Beach Water Park. I highly recommend this home you will not be disappointed. We will be back to stay at the Lake View House-loved it!
“Exceeded our expectations”
We were very pleased with our stay. This house had everything we needed and was clean and neat on arrival. The lake was an added bonus for the grand children and the game room kept them occupied when we were not at the parks. This was our first experience renting and house and I will definitely rent this one next time I need to go to the Orlando area. It was convenient to the parks and dinning and shopping. I will recommend this house to anyone and have already done so. Lamont and Debbie Hope
“A great vacation with Family in a great home.”
House was well appointed and very clean. Great location near Disney world and you could see the fire works. Every one enjoyed the pool and the relaxing time spent at this house. I would go back to this house again.
We stayed at this property for 10 days in March and would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in staying in this area. This home was very nice, clean, comfortable and convenient to all parks, grocery stores and restaurants. Derek was great to deal with and we were impressed that he made a personal call to us on our first morning to see if all was going well. We contacted the management company for a minor detail and they were very good to deal with as will. We absolutely loved the patio and pool area and not having any houses behind us, only a beautiful view of the lake and fountain. We highly recommend this property and hope to return ourselves someday. Thank you Derek and Julie for sharing your lovely home.
“Excellent home for families with small children!”
The home was very clean and close to everything. Excellent choice for small children as the home was "childproofed". Everything we needed in the home was provided. There was not 1 thing we needed in our week there that the home did not have. The owners are very nice and easy to deal with. This home is very well cared for and all the photos you see online are 100% accurate. You will not arrive to a surprise. Pool and jacuzzi were both heated (different temps). Even with the colder weather we were able to use the pool and jacuzzi almost every day. Would stay at this home again and refer any of my family and friends to this home. Top notch Vacation Rental.
“Our stay at Lakeview House”
We had a great stay here. There was only 1 close neighbour on one side & the lake to back. The house was roomy, well appointed, great pool & hot tub, games room for the kids, & tv's in every room with Xboxes in the twin rooms. It was close too the parks, groceries, shopping & restaurants. Our son said the mattress in the 2nd bedroom should be updated. The alarm on the pool doors was a bit bothersome, but we realize the importance of same. The owner was great to work with re: info, payment etc. There was an issue with the alarm but was attended to immediately with 1 call. We would recommend this house to anyone, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
“Location, location, location”
Thank you to Derek for renting his fantastic holiday home to us. The location couldn't be more perfect and was just minutes away from some of Orlando's best restaurants, Outback, Olive Gardens, Logan's, Bahama Breeze, Longhorns, to name but a few. The Disney parks were really near and very easy to drive to. The Villa itself had everything we needed and more for our holiday. We enjoyed many a night in the hot tub in the evening after a day at the parks. We even got to see 2 of the residential gators in the lake! Our family all had a fantastic time and would highly recommend this villa for your Florida holiday
