Meet the owner
Phill GaskellHi, we are Phill and Nicola Gaskell from Greater Manchester. In 2009, with children then aged 6 and 9, we visited Florida and Disneyworld for the first time and made wonderful memories. Since then we have been lucky enough to vacation there every year visiting the parks, attending local events, volunteering at a local childrens' charity and simply for a month a year living the 'American Dream'.
Following a 3 year search and, having recently retired, and with our children now 16 and 19, we finally found a villa that we all fell in love with. As you will see from the pictures, the pool deck is truly amazing and, in our opinion, is hard to beat anywhere on The Shire.
Reserving our villa is very easy but if you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask at any time. We understand that choosing the right Villa is a difficult choice and so we are more than happy to answer anything - just fire away. If you do choose to stay with us, we hope you have an awesome holiday in Orlando and make wonderful memories of your own.

Great Room / Family Room
Large open plan with kitchen overlooking family room with large sectional sofa and two armchairs. 65” HD TV with cable, Netflix, Amazon and Youtube. This lovely big room leads through patio door onto the covered lanai and south-facing pool.
The kitchen has a breakfast bar which offers seating for 6 together with a family dining table for an additional 4 diners which overlooks the pool. The kitchen is extremely well-equipped to handle all your family food preparation needs.
A lovely quiet sitting room with sofa and armchair for reading your favourite book.
The formal dining area immediately adjacent to the formal lounge has a large rectangular table and seating for 6.
The King Master Bedroom Suite on the 1st floor provides a spacious retreat with large French doors that open onto a full-length private balcony overlooking the pool and stunning south-facing views, with no rear neighbours. A perfect place for an early morning relax ahead of a busy vacation day. This beautifully dressed master includes a wall-mounted 55” HD TV providing a private haven away from the family! A very expansive en-suite features a large, separate shower and tub bath with his and her twin sinks.
The second King Master bedroom also on the 1st floor offers the same access to the full-length balcony via French doors. Again, a generously sized room also features a wall-mounted 55” HD LCD TV for your enjoyment. Another large en-suite with shower and bath complete this room
The shared full-length balcony for both Master suites features wicker rocking chairs with a ceiling light and fan – ideal to sit, relax and watch the world go by.
The third bedroom is a Queen bedroom on the ground floor facing the front of the property benefits from a neighbouring bathroom offering a shower over bath and sink vanity. This room's attractive feature is its private situation away from the main family areas in the house. A 32” TV completes the room.
Bedroom 4 upstairs on the first floor with twin beds overlooking the front gardens and has a 32” HD LCD TV. This bedroom can be for adults, teens or children and hence is done in a neutral décor.
Bedroom 5 upstairs on the first floor is another twin-bedded room with bright décor and 32” TV to keep the kids amused.
Bonus Room / The Den
On the 1st Floor there is a Bonus Room / Den equipped with 43” 4k TV, Games console, Blue Ray films and DVDs. There are an assortment of Bean Bags and cushions plus a Futon that can be converted to provide sleeping arrangements for 2 additional guests if required. A perfect space to kick back and chill out away from the adults for a few hours
2 family bathrooms and 2 en-suites.
Our wonderful Games room is well-equipped to provide fun for all the family! Why not play a game of pool on the 8ft pool table, enjoy a fast-paced competitive game of foosball or take a shot at the basketball game. Worried that the room (or the competition!) will be too hot? Don’t be as the room benefits from 2 high-speed fans. If all that seems too competitive, simply grab a stool at the bar-top table, have a cool beverage, and cheer on the competitors from the sidelines.
Our fully screened pool deck and heated swimming pool with raised spa area is truly amazing and we feel sets this Villa out from the crowd. With a totally south facing aspect and no rear neighbours, it offers complete privacy and stunning views through the palm trees that flank the outside. Dine al fresco, enjoy the Florida sunshine or just sit and relax in the shade of the large covered lanai on a balmy evening – this pool deck is an “absolute gem” that is hard to beat. A child safety fence offers protection for smaller guests and the pool may be heated for an additional charge as detailed below.
FREE high-speed WiFi internet access during your stay
For further peace of mind, the Villa has a digital safe for passports, documents etc – guests may make use of this free of charge.
