Citrus Retreat (built 2008) is our home in Florida and we would like to share our home with you during your vacation.

It is located on the award winning development of Orange Tree (off Hwy 27)where the villas are spaciously sited. The development has its own tiny tots play areas, tennis & basketball courts and a soccer field as well as several orange groves. It is situated close enough to the theme parks to allow you to come home during the day and relax in the pool before returning for firework displays or maybe the Kissimmee Old Town car parade.

Our villa has 4 bedrooms/3 bathrooms and we feel that we have everything available that you could need for your stay - secluded salt water pool (no sore, itchy eyes!), hot tub, games room, wireless internet with computer/printer, monitored security alarm & small safe for peace of mind. If you are travelling with small children we have a travel cot, stroller, high chair and baby monitor all ready for you.

Although suppermarkets & restaurants are only a few minutes drive away we arrange for a 'Welcome Pack' of groceries to be in place for your arrival so that you can relax after what can be a long, tiring journey.

Close by is Lake Louisa State Park where you can spend time walking or fishing away from the hustle & bustle of theme parks and shopping malls.

Lovely villa close to Disney

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We had the most wonderful stay in this beautiful villa, situated just a short distance from Disney, lots of local shops within a 5 minute drive, The villa was excellent with comfy bedrooms, we had the master bedroom and it was wonderful and spacious, the second double bedroom was a good size to and the two twin rooms were also a good size, A very large table were we could eat together (not very often as lots of restaurants close by), fully equipped kitchen with all you could wish for. We have visited Florida over the last 20 years and this villa had it all, games room, salt water pool and most importantly for me the hot tub where I could sit and chill watching the kids and husband play in the early evening. Ray and Babs kept in touch with us before we arrived and kept us well informed we also had correspondence whilst we were there. I would highly recommend this villa as its great for all ages, we also had a wedding whilst there and took some wonderful photos around the pool on return from the church. Our age range was 61 to 3 years and our granddaughter had the best time ever! Thank you Babs, Ray and Stuart for making our stay a memorable one from The Bainbridge-Wells family

The villa is a good size with good utilities and equipment. The pool is lovely and inviting, clean and well maintained.
We felt comfortable and secure at all times. Would return in an instant

Don't look any further! This was our second stay at Ray & Babs lovely Florida villa and certainly won't be our last! If you're looking for a home away from home and a place to retreat after a long day out and about, or somewhere just to spend a day chilling in the Florida sun then this is the place for you. Couldn't ask for anymore, the villa is always kept clean & tidy. Ray & Babs and their management company in Orlando are very accommodating and communication is always excellent. This villa is ideally located and is within easy reach of all the main attractions. Many thanks Ray & Babs, we will be booking again soon :)

Absolutely lovely villa and a great place to bring the family. Perfect place to come back to after a long day at the parks but also if you need a day away being able to relax by the pool, with restaurants and shops on just up the road we couldn't have asked for more. Can't wait to go back

Lovely villa, great location

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Stayed in this lovely villa for 2 weeks. Spotlessly clean and maintained with everything needed for everyday family life was provided. We had great communication from the owners and the neighbours were friendly. The grocery pack was very welcome and saved us a supermarket trip after arriving late. The location is great. Quiet but close to parks, restaurants, Publix, and Walmart. The pool was great with a bonus of a hot tub. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend.

Home away from home!

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful villa. We stayed here for two weeks in April/May & it was perfect. The heated pool & spa made days in the villa go quickly and the computer & Games room is an added bonus that we really enjoyed having. Babs & Ray we’re an absolute pleasure to deal with & the welcome pack was a great feature that was really appreciated, especially after a long flight. Lovely quiet location & around 20 minutes to the closest Disney park. A huge selection of restaurants & shops close by. We would definitely recommend!

Fantastic Villa

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We loved this villa very much, great location in a friendly neighbourhood and really easy to get to all the attractions. Great communication with Ray & Babs prior to the holiday, they were always really happy to answer any questions we had and the information they sent prior to the holiday was really informative. The villa could not be faulted, it had everything we needed and more. The pool was great especially after a long day at the parks (as was the hot tub!), we also loved the games room which provided many games of pool! Thanks for the welcome pack, such a lovely idea. We will definitely be back when we next visit Orlando.

Stunning holiday in a fantastic villa

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

a truly fantastic villa with all the amenities that you could possibly need, even had premier league football on so i could keep up to date whilst away. Struggled to get the kids out of the pool to go to disney, which really is only 15 mins away from front door to the gates of animal kingdom, about 10 mins longer to the magic kingdom. Everything that you need is in the villa, which is clean and easily comfortable for all that stay there. the personal touches are the best things about this please, the welcome pack that just means you can wait till morning before walmart, the personal touches from the owners and the speed that they replied to all emails was fantastic. Trust me from experience that this is not always the case. would recommend this place to anyone, i know that when we return we will be looking to use this villa again

Parr's Christmas

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 4.0 / 5

visited citrus retreat over Christmas 2016. we have stayed in lots of villas in Orlando over the last 20 years this is definitely one of the best. The property is very well maintain and decor modern. We paid extra for pool heating as it can be cool in December which made the pool feel lovely, we also enjoyed the hot tub which was a special treat at the end of long days out at the attractions.
lovely touches over and above a massive Christmas tree in the villa during our stay along with a welcome pack full of essentials upon arrival. We will definitely use this property for our next Orlando visit. Nice location and easy to navigate to all parks/shopping.

A superb holiday home, all the usual home comforts, and a very nice touch of a welcome food parcel.The games room was a nice bonus, as was the hot tub, and the excellent pool.The location is ideal, as central to virtually everything, yet a nice quiet retreat to relax in.All in all, this is a super home, and I would recommend to friends , family, and anyone interested in staying in Orlando( another plus was there is an ALDI shop 5 minutes away, if you,re on a budget,lol).We would use again!!!!!
