My family and I
had the most amazing time at Mary's best villa! Right when we
walked it the house it felt like home. The games room, the
pool the dock looking over the water even the
spacious kitchen, everything is in perfect condition. The
location was perfect. We had no busy traffic or noisy
neighbors, we were just a few minutes away from everything. My
family and I have memories that will last a lifetime, Mary's
Villa was like the cherry on top. I have and will continue to
use this Villa every time we visit central Florida and would
defiantly recommend the villa to family and friends!
Our family had a wonderful time at
your home in Florida and hope to return again. We have friends
staying at your home in Sept and December and told them it was
the best decision to rent your home.
Thank you again
Your house is absolutely gorgeous! We had a great time!
Unfortunately, we didn't get to use the pool and hot tub much
due to the rain. Weather just couldn't cooperate with us!
Thank you sooooo very much for allowing us to stay in your
home. It was great to have such a large space when we came
home each night.
You can send the deposit to my mom:
Again, thank you for everything. You were awesome to work
with! I really appreciate it!
We enjoyed our (limited) stay---unfortunately, my mother
became ill and was hospitalized from January 1 to 17 so
we only used the villa for 3 nights. The children enjoyed
using the pool and hot tub in the evening when we returned
form the theme parks (well worth paying the heating fee) and
there really was plenty of space for all of us.
Royce was a good resource and responded promptly when we
encountered a small problem.
Hi Mary, We had a great vacation and loved your house. The
villa had everything you could possibly need. It was close
to everything. The weather was hot for four of the days.
We enjoyed the pool. Neighborhood was very quiet….did not
want to leave. I will be glad to recommend your house at
anytime. I am in the travel business and customers ask me
all the time for good recommendations.
I just wanted to thank you for sharing your
beautiful villa with us April 4-11. We had an abslutely
wonderful time while in Orlando. It was everything you said
and more! We especially enjoyed having the lake behind us.
My 22 month-old grandson discovered a love for fishing! He
and his dad went fishing several times. They did not keep
their "catch," but just enjoyed fishing. I will have to
send you his picture holding up one of the fish when my
daughter forwards it to me.
We also enjoyed the "resident alligator."
The grands were fascinated as we saw him from the dock
almost everyday. I suspect someone may have fed him in the
past, but we used the opportunity to teach the children
about why we do not feed animals in the wild.
From the bicycles to the game room to the
pool and spa, we loved it all!
Once again, thank you for sharing your lovely
home. Mr. Royce is a great manager.
Thank you so much for the use of your villa it was perfect
We really enjoyed the holiday and the kids spent most of it
in the pool, your villa was extremely well equipped, we were
most impressed and will recommend to friends and family.
Disney World was great but very busy!
Great villa in a gorgeous peaceful location only a short
drive from all attractions. Total luxury with everything you
can wish for and great contact from the owner, would not
hesitate to use the villa again, thanks for a great holiday
The house was a perfect set-up for what we needed. Every
child had their own bed to sleep. There was enough space for
all 6 kids to spread out if they needed a little personal
time and room. Plenty of bathrooms to accommodate 2 adults
AND 4 teenagers. We especially appreciated the master suite
separate from the rest of the bedrooms. Everything was clean
and well maintained. Having a full-service kitchen was very
nice for preparing our breakfasts and evening snacks. The
pool and spa were so well liked, the children are now
telling us that we need to install our own hot tub in the
The game room at the house was also very well enjoyed by the
children. Again, there was plenty to occupy their attention
with all of the table games. They also brought along their
favorite video game which was compatible with the game
system you had available. Internet access also came in quite
handy for the teenagers with their instant messaging, e-mail
and web surfing. There was also plenty of space 2 properties
over for the kids to get out their lacrosse equipment and
throw the ball around quite a bit. We used the bikes on a
couple occasions to tour the neighbor and another adjacent –
it was nice to get the legs moving and have a change of
scenery. While we were preparing for our trip, I mentioned
to my wife that I wanted to go to the store and buy some
fishing equipment to use in the lake behind the house. What
a pleasant surprise to find that you already had the
equipment and supplies ready to go. However, I think what
got the most attention from the children definitely was the
6-foot alligator out in the lake. Every time they went out
to fish, he seemed to be there looking for some attention.
The kids even ceremoniously dubbed him “King Richard.” I am
just glad we didn’t have any attitude issues with the
alligator. When we were planning this vacation 6 months ago,
we were somewhat apprehensive that the children would lose
interest and become unruly, but not once during the week did
we hear their favorite phrase while they are at home, “I’m
The location was also very nice. We wanted to be somewhat
removed from all of the activity of the parks and the
surrounding distractions. The neighbor was a nice oasis –
quiet and peaceful. The new development of businesses around
Champions Gate was also appreciated. We could shop for
groceries or go to a restaurant without having to make a
major trip on the interstate. The area looks very promising
for even further development.
Thank you for allowing us to use the home. We are hoping
that we will be back in the very near future. If you have
any questions or need additional clarification, please do
not hesitate contacting me.
Your villa was absolutely perfect!! The condition was
impeccable. You have the whole place outfitted so that
nothing more could have been asked for. I met Royce and he
was great. The whole group had a great time including a fish
caught and thrown back and an alligator named "Al" by the
We have just arrived back from two weeks in your fabulous
villa and I can assure you we will be back, it fully catered
for the three generations of my family that was there, from
the games room for the younger ones to the fishing from your
private dock which kept my husband amused for hours. It was
located in a lovely little estate probably the best out of
the five we have stayed in over the years. Everything was
wonderful and I cannot praise it enough. Thank you for
letting us have the use of it and I will be in touch before
our next holiday in Florida!
Linda Miller, Scotland
Everyone loved the house. It was perfect for our needs.
Thank you very much and look forward to doing business and
sending business your way in the future.
Mary's Best is a wonderfully situated house for a large
family or two small families. We had two small families, one
with 3 and one with 4 and all had their own room with plenty
of space. I've stayed at houses in other areas but this one
was the best thus far. Mary is wonderful to deal with and
her management team is tops. They are very attentive and
timely to any requests. When she says she has enough towels
for everyone, she is telling the truth. We swam in the pool
every morning and in the evening after a full day at the
parks and never ran out of towels. The game room and bikes
are a fun past time when you just want to relax and the
creatures out front and out back definitely keep your
interest sparked. I would highly recommend Mary's Best Villa
to anyone who doesn't want to be cooped up in a hotel room.
The Disney parks are only 3 exits away and Universal is
about a 20 minute drive. If you have any questions, please
don't hesitate to email me for an unbiased opinion.

We just returned this evening from Orlando. We had an
absolutely wonderful time! The weather was near perfect all
the way until Friday, when it was a little cool, windy,
overcast and started raining later in the day.
Unfortunately, we had chosen that day to visit a water park!
But we still had so much fun. The crowds weren't too bad,
though I'm sure starting today, they will be much larger as
most students here in the US are getting out of school. I
feel we timed the vacation very well. Your house is lovely!
It worked perfectly for our family, with 3 separate families
within the extended family. Each couple was able to have
their own bedroom, and the 2 boys (ages 11 and 5) shared a
room and the 2 girls (ages 8 and 3) shared a room. It truly
We appreciate so much being able to stay in your home and it
worked perfectly for us. It really is very close to Disney,
where we spent 3 of our days, and not a bad drive to
Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure and the International
Thanks so much for having us.
What a great time we had...the house was perfect for our
retreat. We will never stay in a hotel again. this is
definitely the only way to vacation! You were most
accommodating and we appreciate it so much. The issue w/
the pool was resolved almost immediately. We are so glad we
found your home online and that you were so nice to deal
Lancaster, NH 03584
The villa was all we had hoped for. The boys loved being
able to fish off the dock. We ate breakfast and dinner at
the house and packed sandwiches for our days at the parks
and beach. It was so nice to come home and relax around the
pool. We really enjoyed having the ice available in the
There is so much to do in Florida we hope to come back
again, and would certainly look into your house again and
hope it would be available.

Hi Mary, We had a wonderful time!! You house is beautiful!
It made us want to move to Florida! Everything was perfect.
The pool was warm and the beds comfortable. The
neighbourhood was quiet and just big enough for my husband
and I to walk for our morning exercise. The location was
perfect as well. It really was just minutes to Disney and
all the great attractions, and with a grocery store just
down the road we could get food on the way home from the
parks and not have to eat out.
Thank you so much, we will be back!
Your villa was perfect for our two families. The home is so
big in fact we didn’t end up using the dining room at all
and surprisingly hardly used the games room. The children
spent most of their time outdoors, in the pool. The computer
access was also great to have.
Any problems we encountered were quickly dealt with by the
Your villa is very beautiful and clean. Easy access to
highways, grocery store, pharmacy, restaurants... Overall
we were very happy with this rental.
We had a fantastic time at the villa. It was so fantastic
that we will never book a hotel when going on holiday
again!!!. It's private villas with pools for us in future.
It was so relaxing we did not want to leave. The kids and
ourselves loved the pool and went swimming everyday.
The house is very spacious and everyone really enjoyed the
games room ( I am the family pool champion!). We spent every
second day going to themeparks and rested the next day at
the villa so we really got to enjoy it. The weather was
really good well into the 90's while we were there but we
were very comfortable with the air conditioning in the
house. And it really is close to Disney.
We enjoyed the local TexMex Chillis a few times. Once again
thanks for renting the house to us we really enjoyed a
relaxing holiday there. I will certainly highly recommend
your villa to other people intending to travel to Florida.
We had a wonderful time at your house. Thank you for
allowing us to use it. Jerry and I will highly recommend it
to others and would probably come back. We enjoyed the
quiet area that it’s located in.
Thank you for
all your help! We loved the villa! We had a minor problem
with the jacuzzi temperature, but Royce came over
immediately to fix it. It was so pleasant being able to come
back in the afternoon and swim, and then play pool at night
after the kids went to sleep. I hope we left everything in
good order. We re-supplied some of the basic necessities.
Again, thank you for such a wonderful stay...it honestly was
the best part of our trip!
We had the best time at your house! You have a beautiful
house. I will definitely recommend it and will be coming
back! We loved the game room, computer access & pool! Thank
Thank you very much for the opportunity to rent your
beautiful villa. My family had the most wonderful time. I
have three children (ages 10,7,4) that found your pool to be
the best part of the trip. Actually, my oldest loved the
fact that you had some really neat animals living in your
As of now, my family is planning on making the same trip in
a few years and we hope that your property will still be
available. If you should need to contact us please feel free
to e-mail me. Our address is listed below and I hope you
found that we treated your home as we would treat ours.
Again thank you for a wonderful stay.

We had a wonderful time (even if we had to share our
vacation with Tropical Storm Alberto!).
The house was beautiful. The kids wanted to bring your house
home with us!
I've been telling everyone about the house and how well it
worked for us. It was so nice being able unwind in our own
"space". I can't imagine the four of us sharing a hotel room
ever again; you spoiled us. You can plan on us being repeat
Also, your management team was very helpful. Since
Minnesotan's don't usually have pools (we would only be able
to use it two months of the year due to chilly temperatures)
we needed some help in knowing how to operate the spa.
Here is our address for the security deposit:
My family and I had the most wonderful time. I only have
good things to say about our stay. The villa is beautiful,
clean, nicely decorated, and well supplied. The directions
to the villa that you sent were excellent. We didn't arrive
until almost midnight on Saturday night so detailed
directions were greatly appreciated.
Our only regret is that we weren't able to stay longer.
We've all agreed that next time we will plan a longer trip
so we can spend more time at the villa.
"We had an
*absolutely* amazing time at your villa. The house was PERFECT
for our needs. We couldn't be more pleased. We would
definitely recommend your villa for ANYONE else. The
high-speed Internet was an absolute MUST for someone trying to
keep a business running while on vacation. I can't think of
one complaint! I hope you stay in business a long, long time!"
villa: Bottom line, was perfect for
us. A little more room than the three of us needed but ideal
for those not interested in getting packed into one of the
Disney resorts at twice the price. Was great to go there to
rest and swim during the heat of the day and then return to
the parks later as the house is only a 10 minute drive to the
parks. The house was very clean and well maintained as well.
One of the biggest plus' was the
broadband internet connection and computer for checking
weather, maps and e-mail. We felt right at home and our
daughter is already planning our next trip to our "other
house" in Florida.
and look forward to staying at your villa the next time we go
My family &
I had a wonderful time. The villa was good. My brother & his
family also are planning a trip to Disney World so I will
forward on your website to him and hopefully you can
accommodate him as well.
We had a great vacation, the house was ideal. Close to Disney
and in an exceptionally quiet neighbourhood. The PC was well
utilized by my kids, who could stay connected to friends at
home. Even the adults for checking local park times,
restaurants, driving directions, etc. I hope to revisit
Orlando next year & would definitely look for your home again.
for the wonderful
stay at your villa.
We had a
great time there.
We really enjoyed our vacation in Florida. Your house was
wonderful, just the right size for our family, and convenient
to Disney World.
We will consider renting your house again, when we return to
Florida. The damage deposit refund may be sent to me at my
address listed below.
house was wonderful, we had the best time. The fishing pole,
lake, private dock and our own personal alligator made the
trip complete. The house was very well stocked and we had no
problems at all.
you for the opportunity to stay in the Villa, It was wonderful
and hopefully we will be back next year around the same time.
We had a wonderful time at your
villa. I would definitely
recommend your villa to my friends
I would like
to say that this is the second time me and my family have
stayed in the villa, we do love it and I am sure we will be
staying there again.
My family and I had a great time,
we loved your villa. We chose your villa to rent mainly due to
the information on your web site. However the web
site pictures do not do justice to the real villa. We could
not get over the size of the place. What we liked about
Bestvilla was the simple price structure. Many places had
additional costs for everything from cleaning to linens to
using the barbeque plus taxes. My kids voted the pool and hot
tub number one, followed by the games room, the dock where we
caught several small bass was third. Even though there are
five bedrooms my family of four fought each for the other the
king size bed in the large master bedroom on the main floor.
We did not get a chance to ride the bikes but were grateful
they were there if we wanted to use them. We voted this our
best holiday ever. We would love to stay at your place again .
WE also met Royce and his assistants, great guys.
enjoyed the villa. The pool heat worked perfectly (we had had
problems with that at other houses in the past), and the kids
loved jumping into a nice warm pool after a long day at the
parks. The adults equally loved sliding into the hot tub.
The house was clean and we were absolutely delighted by the
number of towels available (kids + pool = lots of towels!).
The neighbourhood was very quiet and beautiful. I loved
drinking my coffee out on the deck watching the fish swirl
around the lake.
We loved the entire
week and Royce was very helpful and polite. The best and most
unexpected part of the villa was the location. We were
stunned at how close we were to the parks. All in all, a
wonderful vacation at a gorgeous house. Thank you so much!
We just wanted you to know we had a wonderful vacation and
your villa was beautiful. It was so nice to have all the
comforts of home while on vacation. The heated pool and hot
So nice to "come home" to after a long day in the parks with
the kids. The heater on the pool was not turned on when we
arrived and Cyndi came right out and took care of it. She was
extremely helpful. We look forward to returning a will highly
recommend your villa to our family and friends.
House was great and would consider staying again if we planned
a similar trip. Thank you for making it available to us. We
liked it's location in a quiet neighbourhood. Thank you again.
We felt comfortable and safe in your home. It worked out great
for us and all.
Happy Thanksgiving! Everyone loved the villa. It was
comfortable and well appointed. It was the first time we ever
enjoyed the spa and that was nice. It was pleasant experience.
Thanks and best wishes.
The villa was perfect. There are no complaints! Well maybe the
time spent was too short and it is cold at home! Thanks again
it was a great time and the house was perfect for us! Attached
is a photo of our thanksgiving dinner I'm in the back!
I wanted to thank you for the use of your villa. It was
everything you stated it would be. It was in a good location
and away from some of the hussle of everything, but still very
close to the entrances to Disney World. You provided some
great things that most other locations do not. Some of the
extra amenities were the extra pillows in every room, along
with an extra blanket for each bed. There were more then
enough towels for my entire family (11) that travelled with
us. The extra pool towels were a big hit also. I must also
say the high speed internet was a big help to all, for all
three couples checked email every day.
The game room was a big hit to the children and kept them
occupied when we needed a little break from it all. The pool
and hot tub were wonderful and very clean. Your management
service was of great assistance. When we had questions, they
were quick to respond.
Providing the small box of laundry detergent was a big help to
us, right off the bat. You should be proud of your villa and
the customer service that you provide. You were very easy to
work with and have already recommended your villa to others.
When our travels take us back to FL, we will try and book your
Again, thank you.
WE HAD A
GREAT TIME IN ORLANDO. WE FOUND THE VILLA TO BE UP TO OUR
EXPECTATIONS. VERY CLEAN, NEW AND STOCKED WITH EVERYTHING WE
NEEDED. SPECIALLY TOWELS WHICH WE HAD PLENTY FOR BOTH THE
BATHROOMS AS WELL AS FOR THE POOL. WE WILL DEFINITELY
RECOMMEND IT TO OUR FRIENDS.
We had a splendid holiday in the villa, which was everything
it was said to be in the web site and other testimonials. As
you know, I made good use of the computer, and was astounded
by the speed of internet access.
We really enjoyed the condo.
Things we liked included:
The pool was great and the
guys serviced while we were there The
door lock system
Plenty of towels and wash
Plenty of TVs
Big extra for me was the high
speed internet connection. I was able to prepare for work (4
hrs) one night which helped tremendously. We didn't use the
gas grill, toys in the garage or
bicycles but it was nice to know they were available
The master bed mattress was
We were extremely satisfied
and will look for your website again.
Just back from some wonderful days in Orlando. What a super
place you have. You are one lucky person. We were only three
guys, so we had all the space in the world. We actually had
all our dinners at your place and enjoyed it very much. The
golf was great and it was very easy to find our way in the
We had a wonderful stay at your home. We enjoyed the pool &
spa and just relaxing around the house after a long day at
the parks or beach. I will definitely recommend it to
friends travelling in that area.
Just returned home this evening and I wanted to e-mail you
about our stay at your villa. The web site doesn't begin to
describe how lovely the villa is. From the minute we walked in
the door, we were overwhelmed at not only by its size but how
well furnished the villa is. The attention to detail was
equally impressive. From the place settings in the dining and
kitchen areas all laid out, to the impeccably folded towels in
the bathrooms, the villa was beautiful. After a busy day going
to the parks, at the ocean, or to the many shopping malls
close by, the villa set far back in a quiet sub division was a
haven for my family. The pool and hot tub were a big hit for
my family first thing in the morning and at the end of a busy
day. Having four competitive swimmers in the family, having
the pool handy was great, they even taught my wife how to
swim. Thank you so very much for allowing us the use of your
villa. On our trip back home we all agreed it was by far our
best family vacation ever. One last thing, I would be remiss
if I didn't mention your wonderful management staff. Royce is
an amazing person who was gracious and a wonderful source of
help and information during our stay. He even talked us to the
villa on our drive in when I had forgotten the directions and
map at home. You are indeed lucky to have him. Thank you
again, we will be recommending your villa to family and
friends when they plan on visiting the area.
We truly enjoyed your home during our stay in Orlando. The
pool was a big hit with the kids-they were in it every
day-usually 2 or 3 times! We enjoyed the number of bedrooms,
the abundant towels, the kitchen and how well it was
furnished, the comfortable living room. The master bedroom on
the main floor was so comfortable and convenient. Thank you
for the fishing pole, and the game room. We also appreciated
the computer and Internet access. Everything was in great
condition. Thank you for making our time so nice! Our
7-year-old son summed it up by saying "it has all the comforts
We had a great week with our family at your villa. Thank you
for commenting that we had left it in immaculate condition.
We really tried to treat it as if it were our own. Royce was
great about getting us those kid’s bikes that we had talked
about. My grand daughter and her friend really enjoyed having
them to use. The big kids (adults) really enjoyed the garage
game room. The big and little kids enjoyed fishing off the
little dock. The pool temp was great and our kids both big and
little really enjoyed it. We actually spent a lot of time at
the villa only going to sea world part of one day. We had only
one day of rain and had planned an indoor activity for that
day. So.............we had a wonderful week: it went by too
The spaciousness of the house was wonderful and we had more
than enough space for our 3 families. We would recommend your
property to anyone who asked and would certainly consider
coming back again!!!
South Carolina. U.S.A.
Thank you for the use of your
villa for the past week. It worked wonderfully for our two
families. Royce was helpful when I called. The weather was
warm, we saw many sights, and enjoyed the things your home had
to offer. It was nice to be a little further away (yet close)
from the parks, and enjoy the peace and quite. The nearby
restaurants and Publix grocery store were convenient and the
food options gave variety and were very good. Hopefully, we
will be visiting Florida again and will be able to stay in

We had a
wonderful time. We loved the house and the location. It was
close to all the theme parks, but yet secluded enough from the
crowd. The management team, Royce Andrews, was VERY
accommodating...BIG PLUS! Will definitely refer your house to
family and friends!
We had a
wonderful time, and my family was very impressed with the
house. We had rented a couple of houses previously, and this
house has been the best. It’s a nice touch that its all
inclusive.. (BBQ, house taxes) I was also
We have been
giving the name of the house to our friends, as they were also
interested in renting a house.
Jan 5th 2005
The house was super, the pictures on the internet do not do it
justice. It was easy and convenient for all the things you
could want to access (the directions to find it were easy to
follow to). We will definitely be recommending it to any
friends we know who plan to go to Florida. Thanks so much we
had a simply great time, very easy and relaxed, made more so
by the location and great facilities of the house, (pool,
games room and bikes a definite plus with the children).
