Entrance to the property is through double doors, allowing easy wheelchair access, if needed. Due to the large window above the door, the villa is very light and airy inside. From the picture of the foyer above, you can see the entrance on the left to the family bathroom and the two twin-bedded rooms. In the foreground is the formal lounge and dining area. Above left is the view as you enter through the double entrance doors. It's the first of the two lounges and you can see the second one, the Family Room in the background to the left.
Dine in comfort or relax in one of the spacious lounge areas. This is the dining area viewed from the first lounge with one of the entrances through to the large kitchen and breakfast nook to the right of the picture. The foyer and entrance door to the villa are to the left.
In the Family Room is a 25" remote control cable TV and entertainment centre. In the entertainment centre you will find a 4-head Hi-Fi VCR and a Sony PlayStation 2 which is also capable of playing DVD films and audio CD's. We've left a few video and DVD films in there as well as a PS2 game to get you started. More films or games can be rented locally from Movie Mania at the mall on Champion's Gate Boulevard about an 8-minute drive away. There is also a board game. There's a sofa and chair with smart wooden furniture, table lamps, pictures and decorations. The sofa can be pulled out to make a comfortable queen size bed if there are the maximum of 10 guests staying. The patio doors lead out from here onto the fully screened pool and deck area. This door also has a pool alarm and locks so small children cannot wander out onto the pool-deck un-noticed
Here is the fully screened private pool with large pool-deck and quality patio furniture (pool heating available). Our management company, who are based only a few miles away from the home, are ready to provide you with a superb guest service and will inspect and make ready the property before you arrive.
Access to the villa is via an electronic combination lock on the front door so there is no need to have to collect or drop off keys from the property management office. The updated code for your particular rental will be given to you with your booking confirmation and in case the electronic lock fails, there's also a lock-box by the front door containing a 'real' key using the same access code.
The master bedroom has a queen size bed, a 19” cable TV, VCR, walk-in closet, plenty of drawer space, wooden dresser, 2 bedside tables with lamps, a portable telephone and a radio alarm clock.
The window looks out onto the spacious and extended pool deck and also has a pool safety alarm fitted in case small children climb out un-noticed to the swimming pool. As you can see, there is classic wooden furniture throughout the villa and to the left of the top picture above is the entrance to the upgraded Master Bathroom with Roman tub, separate shower cubicle, vanity unit, WC. The Roman tub is the last word in comfort when it comes to bath time. This ensuite bathroom has a separate door that leads out directly on to the pool deck and is protected by a pool alarm for the safety of small children. Very useful if you wish to use the bathroom after coming out of the pool.

Another of the twin-bedded rooms which overlooks the lawn in the front garden. It has ample drawer space and there's also a large closet in this room. The family bathroom is just down the hall between the two twin-bedded rooms. A beside lamp and radio alarm clock complete this room. Just outside the door is the linen closet where you'll find plenty of towels.
Family size bathroom incorporating a full length bath, shower, sink and toilet. All towels are included and there's extra closet space just outside the bathroom where the extra towels, linen, etc. are stored. This family bathroom is situated in a hallway off the foyer and between the two twin-bedded rooms. Here's where you'll normally find the hair dryer so you won't need to bring a travel one unless you really want to.

Quality 'Maytag' appliances include dishwasher, large fridge/freezer with ice maker, full oven and range, microwave, garbage disposal, coffee maker, blender, electric can opener, breakfast nook with table and four chairs, iron and ironing board, etc. All cutlery, glasses, un-breakables for the pool deck, etc. are provided.

Toll-free speed-dial #51 from the phone to have them set up a temporary account for you.
The Pool at night
As mentioned in the sections above, the patio door from the Family Room / TV lounge leads onto the fully screened, pool and deck area which includes plenty of patio furniture and lighting if you wish to sit around the pool at night. An underwater light is installed in the pool so you can swim at night and this is shown in the photograph above.
The pool depth ranges from around 2'6" to about 5' with steps at the shallow end and a curved seat in the deep end. The pool deck was extended as part of the construction for maximum sunbathing comfort. Pool heating is an optional extra but is recommended between the months of October and April when it's cooler in Florida and this is available at a charge of £70 / $110 US per week. It's advisable to request this when you book if you want it as it takes about 24 hours for the pool to heat up properly. Normally, we'll switch it on a day before you arrive and turn it off on the day before you leave.
Florida Pines is one of the newer communities in Polk County, just off US Highway 27 between the 192 and I-4 but don't worry, there is no construction going on around the villa! It was all completed in 2003 so it is nice and quiet there. You're surrounded by all the facilities and amenities you could want to have a great vacation here. On Hwy 27 N just before the 192 is a bank and a liquor store and there are shops, supermarkets, golf, etc. just a few minutes drive away. Once you're on the 192 itself heading east towards Disney, there are literally hundreds of shops, bars and restaurants for you to choose from the fast food outlets to fine dining.
As you can see, Florida Pines is ideally placed both for Disney itself and the other theme parks like Universal or for access to Tampa and the Gulf Coast and eastwards to Cocoa Beach, Daytona Beach and the Space Coast. You're not going to get bored here in Florida, there is so much to see and do. We've left a large folder in the villa containing flyers and leaflets from all the major and minor attractions around so you can choose which ones you'd like to visit while you sit round the pool or in one of the lounges.
