Tony Ghirra

Hi, my name is Tony, I live in London and I work for the John Lewis Partnership.

I've been a complete Orlando addict since visiting in 1992 with my family. I can't get enough of the weather, the parks and the friendly, laid-back atmosphere. I first began booking villas instead of hotels as a cost-saving measure but soon got accustomed to (or spoiled by) the space, privacy and not having to share the pool! Having rented a number of villas over the years, I finally decided to buy my own in 2013.

I'm really meticulous, so I make sure my villa is maintained to rigorous standards and has all the amenities I looked for when I was looking to rent. I will always do anything I can to make your stay memorable and look forward to welcoming you to my very special home.

Storytellers Villa - All the Magic you can Handle!

Description

THE DISNEY CONNECTION
Storytellers is part of the Vacation Rental Home Connection network. This means Disney comes out to inspect the home every once in a while. They check for amenities, cleanliness and location. During the inspection, the Disney representatives were so enamoured of it that they wanted to stay. Instead of visiting other villas, they spent the afternoon in the living room, commenting that if all villas were like Storytellers, they wouldn't need to do inspections!
Come and stay at the villa the Disney inspectors didn't want to leave!



"THE LIST"
Before I found Storytellers, when I was looking for places my family and I could rent for our trips to Orlando, I had a list. I expect you have a similar list. A list of all the things your dream villa must have. At the same time, I would both love and hate the list. On one hand, it would make me reject most of the villas I was able to find. On the other, it tantalised me with the dream of the perfect holiday destination, where everything was available and beautiful and… right.
When I decided to buy, I made a new list, a longer list that made my realtor recoil in horror. My original list meant it took weeks for me to find a villa to rent. My new list meant it took months for me to find a home to buy.

You’re looking at the only villa that satisfied the list.


THE LOCATION
You’ve already read that Storytellers is set in the Indian Creek community and that it is one of the closest to Disney property. Did you know there is a little-known cut-through directly onto Disney property that avoids all the morning traffic?
Within a couple of miles, you have access to an array of restaurants, a bar, a pharmacy and a supermarket. Locally, you also have all the attractions, stores and restaurants for which the US Highway 192 is so famous.


THE AMENITIES
New! Got allergies? We've got you covered! A new central air purification system filters dust, pollen and other airborne allergens and removes up to 75% of them from the air.
New! Come and stay in the new Arendelle Room, featuring everybody's favourite Frozen characters!

The Bedrooms
First, the bedrooms – there’s five of them, with four full bathrooms to make sure there’s no waiting around while the family is getting ready for a fun day visiting theme parks. That's two master bedrooms with en-suites (one king, one queen), one queen bedroom with its own bathroom and two twin bedrooms which share a bathroom.
Both master bedrooms have direct access to the pool deck.
Each bedroom has a 40in HDTV with a Blu-ray player and Netflix.
The two kids’ bedrooms are themed (princesses and pirates) and they'll love hanging out in them... There's even little white fluffy clouds on the walls!

The Cinema
Speaking of hanging out, have you seen the cinema? It can comfortably accommodate nine in its sumptuous stadium seating, so everybody has a great view of the high definition 122in screen (yes, that’s 10ft!). Your Mickey ears are in for a real treat with the excellent Yamaha/Pioneer Signature Series surround sound system.
If you’re not in the mood for a movie, put your favourite CD in the player, or connect your USB media and enjoy the pinball machine and arcade machine with a choice of 60 arcade games. Beware – it’s seriously addictive!

The Pool Deck
Once you finally tear yourself away from the cinema to come outside and enjoy the wonderful Floridian weather, the private pool deck is the place to be. It’s south west facing, so it’s a true sun trap and is extended to give you the space you want, and enclosed to give you the privacy your family needs. There’s an outdoor dining suite, sun loungers and even a barbecue for you to really taste some outdoor living. The heated pool is a spectacular playground for the young and the young at heart. The spa is the perfect way to unwind and ease those aching muscles after a busy day’s theme park touring. The shaded lanai is a real outdoor living room, complete with a ceiling fan, cushioned wicker seating and even an outdoor HDTV! Finally, the unique golf putting green is completely fenced, so nobody has to see how badly you putt!

The Living Area
The great room is the place to relax. Kick back in the leather sofas and be captivated by the 70in HDTV, or enjoy some family time with the Nintendo Wii, or one of the many board games available. There’s a dining area, a breakfast nook and fully-equipped kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances and a side-by-side fridge/freezer complete with chilled, filtered water and an ice dispenser.

Storytellers Villa has high-speed internet access with wifi and a printer/scanner so you can (through teary eyes, no doubt) check in for your return flight. Nationwide phone calls (perhaps to postpone those flights?) are complimentary.

Free Disney Crowd Calendar
Unique to Storytellers, each booking receives a complimentary crowd calendar for the duration of the stay, allowing you to see which Disney parks will have the lowest crowd levels and which parks you should visit on which day of your stay so you can spend the least time queuing and the most time experiencing the attractions.


THE SERVICE
Storytellers is managed locally by an exceptional management company, who are only too keen to help make your stay as memorable as you want it to be. Their welcome centre is around five minutes away and includes a free internet café, games machines and even luggage storage, so you can make the most of your last day. They can also arrange for baby equipment hire, if required.

There is little I enjoy more than discussing Orlando, theme parks and trip planning, so I’d be happy to answer any queries you have or help with your planning – just drop me an email… I’ll even help you make your own list!

Contact me for additional pictures, movies and information.


Please note that Storytellers Villa is a non-smoking home and pets are not permitted.

Amazing Villa - didn’t want to leave!

5.0 / 5

We’ve just returned from 2 weeks at Storytellers Villa! Everything was perfect! Tony the owner was brilliant from start to finish to deal with, and so helpful. The Villa it’s self was unreal! When we arrived we was all excited, at all the little gems the house offers, the Cinema room.....wow! Just brilliant! The pool and spa, which we had heated, was brilliant! Nice size, clean and lots of seating! The Lani outside was great where we congregated a lot as a family. The kitchen has everything you need too. Rooms and beds where huge, lots of space to unpack. Lots of Towels and additional bedding if needed. The neighbourhood was lovely, and safe, and the house was so close to the parks too! (Especially Animal Kingdom) if your looking for a nice villa close to the Disney parks then this is the villa to stay at. Thanks again Tony xx

Superb home from home

5.0 / 5

To start with the owner tony is a massive help with all things local and responds within minutes of emailing him, the location is perfect as it really is 5 minutes drive to Disney and situated perfectly for the short trip to universal and seaworld and 2 minutes to Wal-Mart and many restaurants, the villa itself was spotless and had plenty of towels and hairdryers which was handy for the brilliant pool and Jacuzzi, the cinema and games room was something else and watching the latest film on Netflix on a120 inch screen with full surround sound was a real bonus, we had 9 traveling with us but as the villa is so big and with loads to do we never got under each others feet , this was my second trip to disney and without doubt the best way to do it , i will be going again in the future and as long as tony still has it i will be going here again.

Truly Amazing

5.0 / 5

Storytellers the most amazing place to stay. I will definitely return. The owner was always prompt on responding to emails and went above and beyond helping us with our stay. My family and I enjoyed the pool, the cinema, and spa during our stay. We had absolutely no problems with our stay at Storytellers. My 5 year old granddaughter loved the Frozen Room and didn't want to come home. The house is so inviting and beautiful. This house is a must if you are planning a trip to Kissimmee area.

One thing we didn’t like about Storytellers - Leaving!!!

5.0 / 5

We were a party of 9, ranging from 3 to 73 and we all had the best time! Storytellers is superb, it’s large, it’s roomy, it’s comfortable, it’s home from home! Having a good time is priority, TVs in all the rooms, although we didn’t watch them much, a lovely heated pool, a beast of a bbq, the cinema room with a vast choice of films and the most comfortable seating! The laundry room has excellent appliances as does the kitchen! 5 bedrooms to suit all tastes and 4 bathrooms, with night lighting and hair dryers complete the experience, Five minutes to the nearest supermarket and restaurants etc. Ideally situated for visiting all the parks and shopping outlets , it truly is the ideal villa for a family holiday. The owner is particularly helpful and communication is very easy.

The house with it's 5 bedrooms and 3 baths was spacious for our family group of 7. The heated pool and movie theater were enjoyed by everyone. The house is conveniently located near the Disney parks and Universal parks. There were many good restaurants nearby also. I would recommend the house to anyone.

Storyteller Villa - A Dream come True!

5.0 / 5

We rented this villa for our party of 6. Everything was exactly as described on the website. The outdoor area was perfect and got the sun till well into the evening. The rooms were spotless and had everything we could wish for and more. Great communications by the owner and even a step by step video with directions from the airport made it a breeze to get to the villa. Lovely area in Orlando with easy access to the parks. Cannot recommend this villa enough, you would be a fool to go anywhere else.

Excellent stay, a real home from home!

5.0 / 5

We stayed in Storytellers in September, 6 adults and two children and cannot recommend it highly enough. This was my 7th trip to Florida and having stayed in a villa each time, this was definitely my favorite for comfort and location. The house is modern and comfortable, with plenty of seating and dining space for our party of 8. Each room had Netflix which was great for putting the kids to bed with a film at night. The air conditioned cinema and games room was also a big hit, and a great place to relax out of the heat. The kitchen is modern and well equipped and the bed rooms were very comfortable with plenty of storage space. The pool area is one of the best I've used, very spacious with a huge BBQ and a well furnished lanai area. Great location if you have younger children, Disney World is a 10 minute drive, with plenty of restaurants and shops in the surrounding area, and you really can see the fireworks from the pool deck! We will definitely be back.

Brilliant base to explore Orlando

5.0 / 5

8 of us stayed in the Villa in July and had a brilliant experience. Located just a mile or so South of Disney it is very easy to get to and from the parks and the fact that there are many restaurants and shops on the main road between the villa and Disney is even better. The villa comfortably accommodated 3 couples and 2 children in the five bedrooms and never felt cramped at any time. The highlight had to be the pool which was great to laze around when not visiting the parks and we spent one night in the pool watching the final of the Womens World Cup on the outdoor TV which was great. The cinema room is a great feature although we didn't use it much due to having so much else to do but when we did use it we thoroughly enjoyed it. Overall a top quality villa in a great location and we would certainly use it again if we go back to Orlando.

Above and beyond our expectations

5.0 / 5

I don't know where to begin! Our stay at Storyteller Villa experience was absolutely wonderful. We are a family of 5 and the Storyteller Villa looked perfect for us. A month prior our vacation, we could not tear ourselves away from the website, watching the videos on YouTube and were amazed at what we were seeing. The owner was super helpful in the planning of our trip as well. Having been to Florida a several times himself offered so much insight and knowledge on the area from where to purchase park tickets, information on the theme parks, other site seeing attraction, even the most economical priced grocery stores. We could not wait to be at the Villa, our trip was not coming fast enough. Arriving at the Villa, which is beautifully decorated, clean, and comfortable with a touch of elegance. Spacey and more a sense of "home" than a sparse hotel room. The beds were comfortable, storage was ample, and bathrooms were clean and spacey. Kitchen stocked with all the utensils one needs. We would have breakfast on the patio every morning. Also, there is big gorgeous terrace with patio furniture and only steps to the pool, and hot tub, which is the perfect way to end the night. Not forgetting the BBQ area, including a mini golf area! The private home theater is tastefully designed with red leather recliner chairs, pop on your favorite movie in your pj’s, popcorn and blanket and you are set for the night. This Villa is above and beyond any expectations we had. Grocery stores, restaurants and even gift store are super close, a quick car trip, load up and we were stocked for a few days, if we changed our minds about eating out, it was no hassle to make the quick stop on the way back to the Villa. We also picked up gifts from the local gifts stores, instead of paying double at the theme parks. As a family with children, we felt extremely safe with the front entrance number lock and returning back late night. The entire complex is quite and relaxing. If you want a super relaxing holiday, this is the place to be. As I cannot say enough good things about the Storyteller Villa. Overall our stay here was fantastic and we will definitely return. It will also be difficult to go back to staying in a hotel after this experience. Definitely recommend staying here.

Spacious & Comfortable, Luxury backyard lanai. Great for large families!

5.0 / 5

Our family stayed at Storyteller's in October 2016. From the time we booked (13 months in advance!), we had excellent communication with Tony. He was very helpful and always replied promptly. We were recommended Storyteller's by co-workers who had also stayed there with extended family. We had 5 adults and two children in our group and we still had a bedroom untouched! The home is spacious and comfortable, with TV's in each room and on the lanai. There is no detail spared in the home, and helpful instructions everywhere. We enjoyed a lot of time in the backyard by the pool, on the lanai in the wonderful Florida weather, and playing pinball in the theatre room. The house is 10 minutes from Disney, 25 from Universal, and about an hour to Kennedy Space Centre. There is an excellent Marketplace nearby for groceries, and tons of restaurants and shopping outlets close-by too! We highly recommend eating at Bonefish.

Tony's house was amazing. We could not have asked for a better host, he was always there to answer any question or help if needed. The pool area was so nice after a long day and the theatre room was enjoyed by the whole family. The house was close to many restaurants and grocery stores. Thank you for letting us stay in your house. We are already planning our next trip back :)

Absolutely amazing!

Tony made the booking process easy. It can be overwhelming when you go overseas to somewhere you're unfamiliar with but Tony kept us up to date with the information we needed, gave us extra facts and details about the location so we could find our way around. It was seamless. The villa itself is at the end of a cul de sac so, very quiet, no traffic. It was amazing!! When we were in the villa, we never saw the children as they were always in the cinema room. Everything you needed was available. Pool was so lovely. Kids loved it (when they weren't in the cinema room). Really clean, great facilities and would definitely stay again. Would recommend to anyone.

Beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood, close to the Disney parks and lots of restaurants and shopping. Well equipped, very clean, and spacious with an awesome theater room. All the lights, remotes, and systems were labeled which was a nice touch. Our favorite hangout spot was the pool and whirlpool area. Private backyard is a great setup! Our kids spent hours playing in the pool. We truly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommended this rental. Tony was very easy to work with and we were impressed with his excellent communication.

Tony is a great host, from communication to meeting our expectations and questions, Tony was perfect. The home is in a culdesac, easy location to get to all attractions. Plenty of stores close for stocking up too. The house is very well appointed with plenty of room to spread out. There were 6 adults in our party and we never felt like we were on top of each other. You will not be disappointed by staying here.

We stayed at Storytellers for 8 nights during the first week of September. We had an amazing time staying at Storytellers and were very happy with our choice. We rented a car and only had about a 10-15 minute drive to Magic Kingdom and Epcot, Disney Springs may have been like 15-20 minutes. Animal Kingdom is even closer. The location is not only convenient to the Disney Parks (didn't do Universal so not sure the drive time) but was close to many restaurants, grocery and mini golf. The pool was a great way to cool off after a long day at the park and had several toys for the kids to play with. The movie theater was also a hit. Our only regret was that we didn't schedule more down time to enjoy the pool and theater more. My daughter was super excited about having a television in her frozen room, but ended up not watching any TV in there because she wanted to watch in the theater. Tony was very responsive in his communications. The only down I might say is that it is close to a highway and you can hear the traffic when out in the pool however, this would not stop me from choosing this house again. Thank you Tony and Storytellers for helping make our Magical Vacation feel even more magical.

Tony was an A++ Host! Have stayed [listing site removed] in Canada, US & Europe. With all outer experience, Tony went above and beyond in servicing our family vacation needs before, during and after the stay. Very quick responses to questions and helped customize our stay with added Crib and Side Rail needs for children. We stayed 6 adults (3 couples) and 2 children VERY comfortably. Tons of space for getting ready and having our own independence when hanging out around the house. Large TV's literally everywhere! (8 total) including an out of this world theatre room with a projector and massive screen. There are well laid out notes and directions in every room for tv and remote control use which is very convenient. This property is so well thought out for large groups. Outdoor putting range is a very cool bonus. Great old school arcade games and pinball machine that both function well! The household "guide" was also very inclusive with names and numbers for management company. We reported some electrical concerns for the ceiling fan in one bedroom as it stopped working. Within the same day, a general manager arrived and later dispatched an electrician. The host, Tony, was in touch with us throughout to make sure everything was properly handled. Given how well coordinated everything was, it was no bother at all! It certainly didn't interrupt any of our fun or activities as the house was so big so of the people in our party didn't even notice the staff coming in or out. Overall, this house was awesome. For a family or large party, we would fully recommend this house. We would definitely stay here again. For anyone travelling with small kids, please note that the back patio DOES have a safety screen to segregate the pool, hot tub and tanning areas from the outdoor TV and lounge area. This wasn't overly clear in the pictures but it is certainly a very safe and strong screen that secures straight into the ground onto and the walls. As for location, 5 min drive from Disney. Tons of restaurants and take out options just down the road within 2 min drive. Several Grocery Stores are within 5 minutes. The Main Outlet Shopping and bar/club district is closer to International which is about 25-30 mins away depending on traffic. Location overall is perfectly central. Kissimmee is awesome with tons to do in every direction.

The house was great, really close to the main amusement parks. Tony helped us with everything we needed. I recommend the house and the owner.

Storytellers Villa is a wonderful place to stay. A variety of fast and casual fast food restaurants were about 10 mins drive away (pizza, Mexican, seafood, Chick-Fil-A) and within about 30 mins of easy walking, including Walgreen's for necessities. Also located 10 mins from Magic Kingdom and 20 minutes from Universal. The house is fabulous for those times when you need a break from the running around: bedrooms are roomy and well-appointed, the master bath was a dream, high-res TV's are well stationed, and the kitchen had all the appliances handy. Our three female teenage guests loved the theater and the super-fast wifi. My husband spent too much time playing pinball and reliving his youthful days in the arcades! The neighborhood is quiet and the people we passed on our walks were very friendly. Many homes we decked out in Christmas lights. Tony was a most gracious and helpful host and checked in with us to make sure everything was OK. He arranged for maintenace to be tehre within minutes when my mom locked herself out of the house! Take your family to Storytellers Villa. There's something for everyone.

The home was just as described, clean and in a quiet neighborhood. The media room was great for the kids, there were pool toys left waiting for us to enjoy, and the beds were clean and comfortable. We had a great time, and the kids didn't want to leave.

Loved our week at Storytellers. It was a quick 10-15 minute drive to the Disney parks. Awesome pool and relaxing movie room made this home the best in total vacation relaxation. Beds were great, plenty of towels, an easy kitchen and clean laundry room made this so much more desirable than a hotel stay. We'll definitely book again next year on our trip to Orlando.

Storytellers was the perfect retreat from the parks for my large family. It made our vacation so much better to have this oasis. It really helped recharge our batteries for 2 park visits per day (park hopper) with a refreshing break in between. That break always included a dip in the pool and some freshly grilled hotdogs & cheeseburgers from Publix.

Wonderful place. Thx Tony, Pool and cuzzi were nice and warm during chilly March nights. Plenty of grocery stores nearby to stay stocked. Don't forget to bring your own sponge, dish soap, extra tp, laundry detergent for week long stays. I'm recommending Storytellers to my friends.

The house is exactly what is advertised. The pictures are very accurate regarding what the house looks like. It is located in a great neighborhood close to Disney. The house is very spacious, clean, large bedrooms and has a great cinema room. We watched a movie in the in home cinema and we felt like we were really at the movies. The cinema has amazing reclining chairs, theatre type lighting and a very large projection screen. The pool and hot tub area in the back yard were also amazing. Large pool with very private yard as well. The hot tub is huge and very deep which is great for sore muscles from walking around Disney/Universal all day. The screened in lanai area also has a lovely outside shaded area with a great seating and a TV so you can also enjoy an outside "family room" type environment. The bedrooms are large with lots of space as well. We all agreed that the beds were super comfortable. My teenage daughter stated that it was the most comfortable bed she ever slept in. The kitchen is nice with a large table to enjoy family meals together as well. The other key comment that I need to mention is regarding the host, Tony. He was super helpful and very responsive through this whole process. He answered all my ongoing questions and provided us extremely helpful information about restaurants in the area and information about Disney, etc. Tony answered all of our questions very quickly which was part of why our whole Orlando experience was so positive. I would highly recommend this home in the Orlando area to anyone who plans on visiting the area in the future.

Wonderful home! Very comfortable beds. Glad location in Florida. 2 hours or less to space, swimming with manatees, the gulf, Disneyland, any type of restaurants, etc!! Plus you can grill, swim and/or watch tv out in the backyard. Great house to take a vacation.
