Positive 04/05/2023 We stayed at this lovely villa for Easter 2023. We had a great time, and found the villa ideally located close to the 192, great for Walmart & all the many food options. Our children loved the Terra Verde resort facilities and made use of the volleyball and basketball whilst we enjoyed the pool bar. The resort is well maintained and secure. There is everything you could need provided in the villa, lots of space and also plenty of towels for the pool/waterparks. We opted for pool heat which was wonderful, I have never been in such a warm swimming pool (perfect if you don't enjoy cool pools, like us!) Dawn made everything so easy, and gave us lots of info prior to arrival, which was great as we only arrived at 10.30pm. We have stayed in 3 villas in Orlando, in different areas, but found this the best location of all (We did Seaworld/Universal). We would highly recommend this villa, and wouldn't hesitate to return. Fran, Dave, Jack & Emily Fran Lancaster UK
Positive 10/10/2022 Lovely to be back in this villa, it has everything we need. Dawn and Ros have put a lot of thought into equipping for all types of guests.Hope to be back again soon! Susan and Keith Hampshire
Positive 16/03/2020 We loved staying in your villa. It is a really comfortable home and it is in a great location. Our kids loved playing in both the pool and the games room. We would be delighted to stay again at your villa on our next trip to Disney Colin Liverpool
Positive 12/09/2019 We were saying today how we would love to book your villa every year now, our favourite part is the fact the sun hits the pool area all day and night! We\'ve thoroughly enjoyed our stay and really felt at home. Stacy & Family Dundee
Positive 31/08/2019 What a wonderful time we had in your villa. Just perfect for us all Sarah Cumbria
Positive 06/08/2019 Just a note to say thank you so much for letting us use your lovely villa, the kids had so much fun in the pool, we had a ball. Didn\'t want to go home!! Thanks again for letting us stay in your beautiful home Vivien Perth
Positive 20/06/2019 We are just packing up to leave.... We have really enjoyed our time here in your lovely villa. We will be back! Susan Hampshire
Positive 11/02/2019 We had a great vacation in the house! Everything was perfect and at check out we tried to leave everything as they were. I left two baby car seats in the garage. As they were new I thought they could be useful for someone else. Thank you very much! Gibson Brazil
Positive 14/08/2018 We had a wonderful holiday in your beautiful villa, soo clean and homely, great to come back to after busy days out. Thankyou to you and your families for sharing your home. Carol Derbyshire

Positive 23/02/2018 Hello! I just wanted to say how much we have loved staying! Like you said it really is a haven at the end of the long days at the parks! Thank you so much for letting us use your villa. Gemma Essex UK
Positive 14/01/2018 Hi Dawn, I just wanted to say how lovely your Home is, we had a fantastic time. We all agreed that the time at the Villa was much more relaxed than the Disney hotel and I am very glad we chose it. Kathryn Wigan, UK
Positive 06/01/2017 We stayed at Palm View Villa, Terra Verde Resort for the Christmas holidays from 23 December 2016 to 5 January 2017. we rented the lovely villa from Dawn and Ros, who were fantastic throughout. We are a family of 6 but the villa would comfortably accommodate 10 people. It is a very spacious bungalow in a lovely spot not very overlooked, in the very safe, gated resort of Terra Verde. The villa has a huge open plan living and dining area decorated to a very high standard with all the contents in excellent condition and wifi included. There is a lovely pool with the villa and the patio door leading to the pool has safety bars which prevents little ones getting to the pool area without supervision which is a great safety feature. All the appliances at Palm View Villa are practically new and everything was spotlessly clean. The beds are in tip top condition as was all the bed linen and towels. It really was an excellent find, it is far better than we expected, the pictures do not do it justice. The garage is converted into a games room with table tennis and a pool table which my son adored, it also has brand new washing machine and tumble dryer. All three bathrooms are very well appointed and spotlessly clean with hairdryers provided. Terra Verde is a beautiful resort with a lovely club house, gym, tiki bar and communal pool, being a manned gated resort it is very safe for children and all the staff on site are very pleasant and helpful. The villa is ideally situated for Disney and Universal being no more than 15 minutes drive to any Disney Park and a few minutes more to Universal. The Premium Outlets are a 20 minute drive away and there are many restaurants, Walmart and a fantastic Publix within a 5 minute drive. It is under an hour to the Kennedy Space Centre. I cannot praise Palm View Villa enough and would have no hesitation recommending this villa to anyone looking for a base in Orlando. Jolly Family Cork, Ireland.
Positive 28/05/2017 Hi Dawn, we have had a fabulous holiday! We loved the villa it felt like home. The children loved the pool (we all did- but they used it more than us) and thanks again for getting the blender We will definitely recommend your villa and stay again. So thank you very much. We made some fantastic memories on this holiday and some of them were just as simple as playing UNO in the villa while it poured down outside. Michelle Bolton UK
Positive 24/11/2016 Hi myself and my family have just returned from our week at your beautiful villa. We had an amazing week in Florida and felt very comfortable at your villa. The villa was clean, well equipment and in a perfect location. Thank you for allowing us to rent your amazing home from home, we will definitely be returning. Lisa Plymouth
Positive 7/5/2016 We have just returned from what can only be described as a truly magical holiday at Palm View Villa and Terra Verde resort. The villa is just superb! It has got everything that you would have at home and more. Location for us was key and Palm View is just where we wanted to be. 10 minutes to Disney and 15-20 minutes to Universal. All your food restaurants are literally 5-10 minutes away and the supermarket is 5 minutes away. The villa was immaculate and well kept. The pool was just heaven after a day a the parks and for a morning dip. Just a truly great place to stay. I would and already have recommended Palm View Villa. Mark Yorkshire. UK
Positive 12/10/2015 We are back from our holidays and we all had the most amazing time. The villa was wonderful, the kids loved it, they were either in the pool, in the games room or making use of the wifi. The beds were so comfy, we don't usually sleep very well when we are way but the bed was so comfy we did. Thank you for all the information too, it was very useful. I hope everything was okay with the villa when we left. Many thanks again, Julie and families Julie Hampshire
Positive 2/8/2015 I just wanted to thank you for renting your villa to us with such short notice. It was perfect for our group everyone was so happy. We come to Florida every year at this time we hope rent with you again soon. Thank You Again Aikens USA
Positive 25/4/2015 Rose and myself have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home here in Kissimmee. It is very apparent that you are proud of it by the way you have made it so comfortable and well kept. Thank-you. Alan & Rose Canada
Positive 15/9/2014 Hi Dawn, We've just returned very tired we DID ALL THE PARKS !!! medieval nights and limo to planet hollywood I think Roy and I are getting to old for the lot in one fortnight but it was fab just as was your villa, very quiet corner, good size, very clean and well equipped and everything we needed to enjoy our stay there! Again many many thanks for our lovely holiday, hope to be back soon (to start saving AGAIN) All our Love and THANKS for a fantastic holiday to remember Roy ,Marian,Scott and Michaella XX Marian Scotland
Positive 22/5/2014 We just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time in your home and we will be recommending your property to others.. It was perfect! and the community was wonderful. Cunha family Canada
Positive 11/1/2014 Book with confidence. Palm View is a relaxing home from home, there was nothing we could say 'I wish it had .....'. My husband and I stayed late November early December so we booked pool heat - oh how relaxing that was after a leisurely breakfast, a day shopping or parks, or even an evening swim made possible by the illuminated pool. I would recommend that you spend a little time reading the very informative info guide, complied by Ros and Dawn the owners, believe me it's worth it even if you have been to Florida before. Thanks Ros, you made booking very simple, and I will certainly recommend Palm View. McAllisters Cumbria
Positive 21/09/2013 We stayed at Palm View in Sept 2013, what an excellent choice we made, the villa was a pleasure to come back to every day, it is modern, spacious, well maintained and spotlessly clean. There was everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable. From the pool with its morning suntrap to the games room every room was perfect. I will definitely be recommending Palm View to my friends and relatives. I dealt with Ros (owner) regarding booking and details and she could not have been more helpful and a true pleasure to deal with. With regard to the resort, Terra Verde is a great place for couples and families alike, with the 24 hour security you feel very safe indeed and the facilities on terra verde are excellent. The location is ideal with just a short drive to the shops, restaurants and of course the parks. Sadly we had to come home, but we have some great memories of our stay at Palm View. Thank you Ros and family for letting us stay at your villa. Kelly Family Paul Kelly Manchester
Positive 02/09/2013 We have just spent the middle week of a 3 week holiday touring around the United States and this is our second time in Orlando. The villa is really well located and the Terra Verde resort is excellent. We have 2 boys aged 12 and 17 and the facilities both in the villa and resort are second to none, we also noticed that there is a distinct lack of properties for sale here and this spoke volumes as clearly its a place of choice to live. The owners are so helpful and the villa contains everything you need for a relaxing stay. We will be back!! Morrow Family Morrow Family Telford, Shropshire
Positive 26/07/2013 We rented this villa in June 2013. The villa was well equipped and furnishings were excellent.We found the location vary central for everything,Walmart Disney and shopping malls nearby. Gosman family
Positive 03/01/2013 The villa exceeded our expectations in every way. It was a wonderfully furnished house, and convenient for driving to/from the Disney parks. Kudos on a very well-designed pool for children, as well. Bachmann family Rochester Hills, Mi
Positive 29/12/2012 Thank you for sharing your home with us! This property is very clean, has wonderful extra touches, and is in a safe, gated community. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Palm View Villa. The Thompson family Cantonment, FL
Positive 19/06/2012 Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us for our 2 week vacation in Orlando. We had a blast and being that it was so convenient to DisneyWorld it made the travel very easy! It was also a safe environment since it is a gated community with very good security! We plan on coming back in the near future! Thanks again! The Sorayamas
Positive 18/11/2011 We really enjoyed your villa and the spacious, quiet relaxation it provided to all of us! (7 guests) The kids loved the pool and we really appreciated all the amenities that were available both in the villa, and in the surrounding areas. We all remarked on how clean and calm the entire area was and it really was very peaceful and relaxing to return to this wonderful villa after a long day in the sun! We will certainly return to TerreVerde in the future. Why stay in a hotel? We loved it at Palm View Villa! Rhonda Tennent Uxbridge, Ontario
Positive 06/11/2011 The best Villa I have stayed in and will definitely try to be back again. Im sure availability will get more difficult with the repeat customers that such a good villa will attract. Excellent location and and great facilities for my litte girl who was just 16 months old during the trip. Many Thanks. Simon,Donna and Neve Simon Starns Horsham, UK
Positive 09/03/2011 We have just returned after a week at your house and I must say, on the behalf of both our families, that it was a delight to spend time in your house in Orlando. We really enjoyed it and we felt right at home. The location, with both parks and shopping nearby, is great and the resort facilities, i.e. the pool, were a wonderful complement to the villa. All in all we had a great time. I will recommend your villa to friends if someone is going to Orlando. I must also thank you for all your helpful advice and information to us before our trip The Steen family and the Thelander family from Sweden.
Positive 01/03/2011 The whole family enjoyed the holiday very much due to the fact that we could come back at the end of a very busy day and feel very relaxed and safe. It was very much like being in our own home (with the exception of a very warm pool). Would highly recommend to anyone in the future and will definitely be back to visit again. Andy & Louise Hughes Liverpool
Positive 04/02/2011 We used the villa in November and it was great in every way. We all loved the pool and games room. Super place; will be back again soon. MARK & jULIA kENNEY United Kingdom
Positive 29/06/2010 Fantastic villa. Everything you need and more! Clean, well-equipped and perfect location. You really have thought of everything. Can't wait to come back!! Holder family Copthorne, West Sussex.
Positive 22/02/2010 We have just returned from a fabulous week staying at Palm View Villa. Dawn was very helpful with all aspects of our vacation planning. She was extremely efficient and always answered our emails promptly. Upon arrival the villa gave us a real WOW factor, and this continued throughout the week as we enjoyed staying there. The villa was of high quality and exceptionally clean and very well equipped, every little detail had been thought of. We really enjoyed the pool and the games room was a nice touch too. Terra Verde resort is superb and it felt very secure indeed. The resort facilities were first class. We would not hesitate to recommend Palm View Villa to our friends and family and we are really looking forward to going back. Sarah Kenney Nottingham, England
Positive 10/08/2009 Villa was beautiful, had everything we needed, kids loved swimming pool and games room and was ideal location for visiting the parks. Thanks so much for making our holiday so brilliant Anne Burns Worcester Park Surrey
Positive 03/06/2009 I wanted to be very sure that Palm View Villa was legitimate so I asked Dawn and several guests here many questions before I booked our stay (late March, 2009). I did a lot of online sleuthing too. It was well worth it. The house was a wonderful deal, especially compared to staying at WDW and it was so close to come home for lunch and a nap. Made it much easier to head back to Disney and deal with the crowds and stay up late for fireworks, etc. The Villa was beautiful, very clean and very welcoming. I couldn't believe how many details have been thought through. We noticed plastic pumpkins for trick-or-treating at Halloween, a tree for guests staying over at Christmas, pool floats, nice plastic stemware for using around the pool, etc. And there were even some special touches that obviously were left just for us! We loved the design of the house, especially the bathroom with a door to the pool. My 11-year-old became much more comfortable with swimming during our vacation, which I know wouldn't have happened if we'd been sharing a big pool with lots of splashing kids at Disney! My daughter and son-in-law and my older son came from across the country for this family vacation. There was plenty of room for people to have privacy and plenty of space when we wanted to be together so it worked out very well. The kitchen was lovely and well-equipped--we even threw a double birthday luau party while there! The game room in the garage was fantastic, perfect for relaxing and a great place for brotherly bonding. We noticed lots of movies, books and other entertainment but never had time to use them. The resort felt safe, quiet and wonderful. We took a morning run one day and checked out the clubhouse facilities and pool there. My only regret was not staying longer because we enjoyed the Villa and resort as much as we did Disney World and would have loved to have spent more time "at home”, as we referred to ii while in Florida. I've read mostly positive reviews about Terre Verde overall but I have to say, travelers' experiences seem to be most affected by the homeowners. Our trip was top-notch because of Dawn and Ros. You couldn't ask for more gracious hosts! If prospective guests have questions, please feel free to e-mail me. It greatly helped to ease my mind to hear from travelers who had already stayed at Palm View Villa and I am happy to reassure others in turn. Thanks so much Dawn and Ros! If we're ever back in town you can bet we'll be staying at your place! Elizabeth Lowe Lovely Michigan, USA
Positive 21/04/2009 Hi Dawn, Ros. We had a lovely stay at your beautiful villa, and we were very sad to leave. The villa has everything you can ask for and more. We will for sure recommend it to all our friends and we can't wait to be back ourselves. Thanks for all your help! Hugs. Thadine and family. Thadine Mauricio Curacao Neth. Antilles,
Positive 24/09/2008 This was our second visit to this lovely villa and it was just how we remembered it. It is so well equipped with everything you could possibly need and is located in an ideal location, peaceful & relaxing, yet only minutes away from the main attractions. The help & information Dawn provided was invaluable and much appreciated. We are looking forward to returning for our 3rd visit!! The Mooney Family West Sussex
Positive 12/08/2008 Hi Dawn and family. Just wanted to say thank you for the rental of your villa. We had a wonderful holiday. The villa was great and had absolutely everything you could need and more. It was an added bonus having the table tennis and pool table for the kids. We have been to Florida a number of times now and can honestly say that Terra Verde is the best location that we have ever stayed in. We can't wait to return. Many thanks once again. Linda Busby West Wickham, Kent
Positive 25/06/2008 Hi Dawn & Martin, Thank you so much for the lovely use of your villa, it was fantastic. Terra Verda is such a nice and peaceful resort with everything you need. The villa is beautiful, very well equipped with everything you could possibly want on a holiday. We used the cool bag and ice packs for going to the parks. Thank you for all the information you provided before hand it certainly made our holiday run much smoother. We had never stayed in a villa before and was so pleased that we had chosen your villa as it was perfect for all the family. Thank you again and we will be coming back again. Michelle, Adrian, Charlotte and Rebecca Michelle England
Positive 23/06/2008 Great location! Very clean and lots of room. We all had a great vacation and would stay again! Susan Harris Holly Hill, SC
Positive 28/03/2008 Hi Dawn, Just wanted to send a big thank-you to all of you from all of us, for the use of your lovely Villa. We had a lovely two weeks there and were very sad to leave the Villa and Florida. The time went so fast, we can't believe we are home already! The villa was so well equipped for our needs - we even used the cooler bag the day we went to Typhoon Lagoon. The Kids also had good fun in the pool with the pool toys. The Villa is in a great location too - very peaceful. Last time Paul and I were in Florida we stayed just off International Drive - I was so stressed I felt I needed a holiday when we came home, but, not this time. Even though we did loads, parks, shopping etc. we had a few villa days and I must say I feel relaxed. Thank You again. The information you gave me and also the info provided in the folders was invaluable - it was like having a personal holiday rep looking after us. I had never booked holiday accommodation this way before and was a bit apprehensive about it, but thanks to you it was an excellent experience. Fiona, Paul and Boys Fiona McHugh Donegal, Ireland
Positive 22/01/2008 We recently stayed at Palm View Villa and had our best vacation ever. The villa is beautiful, very spacious and clean with many extras giving it a really personal touch. The Resort facilities are wonderful to have at hand for those lazy non park days! Thank you for everything, we will be back! Barbara Tomlinson Nottingham, England
Positive 19/07/2007 We have just returned from a super week in your Palm View Villa. The villa was excellently located to the parks and it was so well equipped for all our needs especially for our 3 year old, with toys to play with and videos. They all loved the pool with the rafts and the masks, etc. We also appreciated the info book you have in the villa. We would all come again and will definitely recommend to our friends. The Gates Family, Aug 2007 Diana Gates Lymington, Hampshire
Positive 09/07/2007 Our family has just experienced the wonderful Terra Verde Resort, and enjoyed all the magic of Florida. The accommodation was beautiful, it really is a home from home holiday with everything provided by the owners, the location of the resort is perfect as you are only 10 mins from the hustle and bustle but yet the location of the villa makes you feel as if you are a million miles away, I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Dawn and her partner, for all the help and assistance given to us prior and during the trip, the directions were very easily read too even i managed that, so to sum it all up if i can it was a first class holiday and excelled our expectations, thank you again for making our holiday special. The Brogans & the Gallaghers Glasgow, Scotland
Positive 16/04/2007 Thank you for assisting us to have a wonderful 2 weeks in Florida. The weather was perfect and the location of the villa for all the shops and attractions was great. We thought the very spacious and well thought out design of your villa was a particular feature. It came with everything we could have wanted and was very comfortable indeed. The pool was a great bonus and well worth paying for the heat in the colder months. All in all a wonderful experience which we hope to repeat. Stewart and Sue Pamment and family. Stewart Pamment Cheshire, UK.
Positive 06/02/2007 We recently stayed in a great villa in Terra Verde. The house was beautiful and well equipped. The area was quiet and peaceful. We will definitely stay there the next time we take a vacation to Orlando! We will also be recommending the villa to others we know who are visiting the area. Van Dreel family Northeast WI
Positive 08/01/2007 Christmas/New Year 2006. We recently stayed in this spacious homely villa with friends a total of eight in our party. The facilities and location of Terra Verde are excellent. The children particularly enjoyed the games room and swimming pool. Great holiday, thanks. Graham Baxter Brackley Northants
Positive 07/10/2006 Just a brief note to say that our stay in Sept. was perfect and made so pleasant for us all by the lovely villa. Very central, beautifully furnished and after a long day at the nearby parks/shops how nice it was to come back to a relaxing dip in the pool and such pleasant surroundings. We had two very young children with us and they loved it. All the extra gear the children needed was easily available and all their needs were catered for, even bed-time story books! Couldn't ask for more, we will be back...if there are places left! David and Angela Tribe David and Angela Tribe and Family
Positive 18/09/2006 We all enjoyed our holiday in this lovely villa. It had all we needed to make our stay home from home. In a very central position for shops, parks and Old Town Kissimmee (an old favorite with the men of the family). I would definitely recommend the villa to all family and friends and would love for my family to return again soon. Court Family Kent
Positive 24/08/2006 What a holiday we have just had !!! This was the first time in America for all of us and it was made so much easier by staying at this lovely lovely villa. It was perfect, with all the little touches, nothing seems to have been forgotten, being so close to the parks & shopping places, was like an added bonus. Also there was lots of help from Dawn before we even flew out, then we arrived, and found that there was lots more info there!!! This villa on Terra Verde is a must for anyone going to Florida. Thanks. Victoria Leahy Essex
Positive 22/07/2006 Have just nicely returned from a very hectic 1 week stay in Orlando at Dawn and Ros's villa at Terra Verde. I would like to let potential renters know that you will be staying in a very nice peaceful location, far enough away from the busy day crowds but close enough for all parks, shopping and dining out, the facilities at Terra Verde Resort are also a nice addition as opposed to staying at a villa only let. The layout of the villa was perfect for our 2 family of 4 needs, large shared dining, sitting and pool areas whilst the double master bedroom and bathroom arrangement afforded each family their own private space. With regard to equipment and 'home touches' there is everything you need provided at this first class villa and more! Rider Family Yorks UK
Positive 08/03/2006 I stayed in the villa for a lovely two weeks. It was lovely; the pool was amazing. I stayed with my mum and dad brother and friends. We loved it because it was so near to all the parks we are already talking about staying in palm view next year. It was a trip to remember thankyou. Katie Berry Bognor Regis
Positive 29/01/2006 We stayed at this beautiful Villa in November 2005 and had what we can only describe as the holiday of a lifetime. The Villa is first class with everything you can possible want (and more!!) Everything was beautifully maintained and a lot of thought had gone into the facilities on offer. We are in our 70s and will never stay in a hotel in Florida again. Terra Verde Resort's location is excellent. We have never driven in Florida before and the easy access to the parks really made a difference - only 10 minutes to Disney's main gate! The resort facilities are perfect and offer a wonderful alternative to the theme parks. We enjoyed our holiday at Palm View Villa so much that we have booked to go again this November. Well done to Dawn and Ros your booking service and knowledge of the area were so helpful and we really appreciated it. Thankyou. David & June David & June Rice West Sussex
Positive 22/09/2005 We stayed here for just over 2wks in August 2005 & didnt want to leave!! On arrival the villa was lovely & clean & had anything & everything you could possibly need. The resort was also spotlessly clean and well kept. The location is brilliant for the parks & shopping malls and plenty of places to eat!! The owners have also provided helpful information folders which came in handy quite a bit. We thoroughly loved our stay here & would highly recommend it to anyone. Many Thanks for making our stay comfortable & enjoyable & we look forward to staying again. Bryn & Elaine Chadwick & Family Manchester, UK
Positive 11/09/2005 What a great place to stay. The property was as advertised, and fitted out to a high standard. The kids enjoyed the pool, table tennis and playstation. The location is ideal, being close to a supermarket,Kissimmee, the parks and I Drive. We all enjoyed our holiday in the Orlando area and this was made better by staying at Roz and Dawn's execellent property. We will be back. Reece Family Troon, Scotland
Positive 22/08/2005 A spacious villa offering all facilities to enjoy a great family holiday. Superbly located for all attractions, in addition to being on a well maintained resort. The villa has all home comforts and essentials supplied ensuring you enjoy your stateside holiday. Highly recommended for families and we look forward to future visits. Williams family Outwood, Surrey.
Positive 04/08/2005 We spent a wonderful two weeks here. The villa is well equipped, spacious and superbly maintained. The information we received from Dawn and Ros on booking, and later via a pack in the villa, was much appreciated. The location is ideal ? peaceful woodland surroundings (a family of cranes regularly strutted past the pool area) yet conveniently close to major routes and the Disney attractions. All facilities including a choice of supermarkets are only a few minutes away. This is a real home from home and we would certainly like to stay here again. Highly recommended. Alan, Caroline and Jack Acton. Alan Acton Wakefield, Yorkshire
Positive 03/03/2005 We had a great week at the villa. The accommodation was great and as described. No problems with check in. Kids loved access to the pool, although we did go to the community pool once as well. Weather was great (some rain one day only). Villa was well maintained, clean, and as nice and spacious as described before we arrived. Our family of 5 plus another couple fit just fine. We will come again. Keith & Tricia Shute Milan, NH
