"I wanted to send you an email to let you know how pleased my family was with the accommodation and Regal Palms Resort in general. It was, as many previous holidaymakers have already testified, exactly as described on the website! I would have no hesitation in recommending this resort and your property to any prospective or anxious (as I was!) holidaymakers, and would be happy for you to pass on my email address for genuine enquiries.

We were also pleased with the maintenance services, when we had to call them out to re programme the safe (which had been incorrectly left open/locked by the previous occupants). They were prompt and efficient in rectifying the problem.

Though we ate out most of the time, there was a couple of occasions when we were so tired after long days in the Theme Parks that we just wanted to get back to the Resort for a much needed swim and enjoyed very good meals at the Resort restaurant. My very fussy husband preferred these meals to some we had at the Theme Parks!! Praise indeed.

Also as a final note, I would also like to recommend the excellent Health Center/Spa. I decided to give my aching feet a treat at the end of the holiday with the 10% Owner discount vouchers you sent us and enjoyed an excellent aromatherapy pedicure and on the Saturday morning before leaving, a relaxing facial which set me up for the long journey home.

Again, thank you for your contribution in helping to make our family holiday a pleasant and worry free experience".

"This picture below was taken the day we arrived and we were having a look around, we thought what a lovely place it was and the grandchildren couldn't wait to get into the pool.

We had a great holiday, the resort and your house was just as you said it would be.

The staff at the resort were very friendly and helpful, also all the advise and tips you had given us before leaving for our holiday was excellent and spot on.

The resort is ideal for families and for meeting people and because everyone went to the parks at different times, though out our stay the resort was never too busy not to enjoy the pools and have some quite relaxing times without having to worry about the children, we could always keep an eye on them from any area of the pool.

We would and have recommended you to our family and friends and work colleagues, so don't be surprised if they mention our names if they contact you. Thank you once again for all your advise and help up to and during our stay".

"This was truly one of the nicest places we have ever stayed.

We booked with unit owner Simon directly. He is a class act. Everything he claimed on his website www.regalpalmsrental.com was entirely true.

Check in was a breeze. We had no issues at all. The unit itself was immaculate. It had 3 bedrooms (all with their own full baths), a very nice sized kitchen, a laundry room with washer/dryer, a dining room, a nice size living room, and a balcony off the master bedroom. My wife walked in, and said "This is beautiful!” After years of staying in various hotel rooms all over the country, it takes a lot to get her to say something like that. She is a bit picky, so I was surprised to hear it.

The pool area is just as great as everyone else is describing it. The water is nice and warm, the water slide and lazy river are great, and the snack window (where you can get anything from Pina Coladas to a well cooked steak) was good as well. The playground inside this area was an added plus for the kids. They loved every minute of it. My wife enjoyed the spa, where she got a pedicure. It was reasonably priced at around $40. The fitness center was really nice, and the separate hot tub in there was a plus. We ate at the on-site restaurant one night, and the food was good. It was priced similar to most mid-scale, chain restaurants (Outback, Carrabba's, Red Lobster, and the like). The fact that there was a Publix supermarket a stone's throw away was great for us. It saved us money buying food there, and cooking, rather than going out to eat every night. Check out was also a breeze. We had no issues there either.

All and all, we had a great time. The kids loved it and it was extremely clean, so it passed my major concerns with flying colors. We will be back next year, that's for sure!! Here are some photos. One is of my wife, son, and nephew. The other is of my son and nephew in front of the Disney Castle.  I took about 180 pictures when I was in Florida, and I just realized I'm not in any of them!"

"We decided to to the Florida thing this year and so began a marathon search for accommodation there for us. Not wanting the restrictions of a hotel room, and having been spoiled with a previous private home rental in Europe we had exact needs in mind.

Then after finding Simon's web-site we knew this was to be the one.

Everything from initial enquiry to booking to paying and, of course, arrival was so painless and the most straightforward rental we have ever done. Clear directions helped tremendously.

Checking in was so easy and we rolled up to the door of our home for the next 2 weeks full of tiredness but with happy hearts. From the very second we entered it felt just right, cool, clean and very well equipped and with a TV the size of a cinema we were a happy bunch. All 4 rooms had cable tv with some of them even having a video or dvd player :-)) the bathrooms were huge and an endless supply of hot water it seemed.

The facilities at Regal Palms are top notch and the pool area is such a wonderful place for old and young alike, even with a barbeque at weekends. It was nearly as much fun as the parks themselves. The parks are so easy to find and Disney was easily reached within 15 minutes in the busy times, 7 or 8 minutes at the quieter times. All other attractions are well within the half hour as well.

Shopping was a piece of cake and unusually for here can be walked to in 3 minutes :-)))

We all look forward to renting one of Simon's homes again next year and would have NO hesitation whatsoever to recommend them to anyone. Even to the point of linking his website to mine.

So again many thanks, Simon, for making the whole process so easy for us and we look forward to next years Disney bash with a much easier mind.

We had a wonderful time. It was just like the pictures on the website, and so clean. Our Family from Alaska enjoyed a 100 degree temperature difference. Really enjoyed the "Water Slide and Lazy River". We all had a great time we would love to return in the summer and would highly recommend it. Who needs the Theme Parks! The pools "well heated" are perfect for family fun, apparently all year round! We certainly did not expect such nice weather for January. The children would have opted to stay at what they called the beach "the zero entry pool" just perfect for small children and their parents. We got some fabulous family pictures and made great memories. The staff at the resort were all helpful and responsive. The air condition was not cooling when we arrived, after calling the front desk within 10 minutes a service technician arrived and determined it needed a new thermostat and returned with one the next day. Fantastic! The Gym is open from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm and is well equipped, and did not require supervision. I would highly recommend when guests make their plans to take in the attractions they build in a day or two to just relax and enjoy the Resort.

"Simon, I just came back from Orlando. Just wanted to tell you, that everything went perfect! The house is beautiful and the Resort, extraordinary! Thank you so much for trusting us with your wonderful house and congratulations. I absolutely will recommend it in the future" Regards, Sebastian

Holly, Ralph, Erin & Seth, New Brunswick, Canada

"Hi Simon, we arrived home yesterday and wanted to thank you for your townhouse. We had an awesome time, the resort and your home more than exceeded our expectations. I would recommend your home to anyone. Thanks again and hopefully we can do business again sometime in the future"

Heather & David, Martha, Sara, Shane, & Kylie, MA, USA

"We just returned from a 10 day stay in your wonderful house. The townhouse was spotless and very well laid out. Having all those bedrooms and bathrooms was terrific!! It was such a bonus being able to put the kids to bed upstairs and then relaxing by ourselves downstairs. Another awesome feature is the washer and dryer. It was so nice to be able to pack only half the amount of clothes we normally do & then being able to come home with no laundry! We will never go back to a hotel in Orlando again!

We cannot say enough wonderful things about the pool area!! The kids (and the adults) found we would rather stay there most of the time than hit the Theme Parks. The lazy river and slide are incredible. Both pools were so warm in the middle of February. We also enjoyed jumping in the hot tub for a nice long hot soak. We ate a few times at the restaurant and found the food to be very affordable and satisfying. Plus...we loved the idea of being able to enjoy a cocktail pool-side if we so chose.

This was our second time renting from Simon & we were just as happy as the first time. We are definitely looking forward to returning again next year. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to stay in your vacation home." (Heather has now been a welcome guest at our house 4 years running)

Fred, Auburn, PA, USA

"I wanted to thank you for the use of your townhouse for our vacation.  I was, at first, nervous about the prospect of renting from someone who I’d never met and with whom my only contact was e-mail.  I am very happy to report that everything went great.  Your townhouse was beautiful…it was spacious and clean and gave that “home away from home” feeling. All the amenities that we needed were there to make our stay as comfortable as possible.  None of us felt crowded at any time during our stay. The pool area was a wonderful place for us to take a break from the Parks and provided a great alternative to Disney’s own two water parks. All in all, our vacation was super.

It’s understandable that people would be apprehensive when contemplating entering into a financial agreement with someone they only spoken to via internet.  They should be!  Since I work in law enforcement and have had numerous dealings with people who have been defrauded by unscrupulous individuals over the internet, I was very apprehensive sending money to someone I didn’t know.  You can ask my wife, I was nervous the entire way down to Florida fearing that Regal Palms was nothing more than a large patch of dirt in the middle of nowhere. Worse yet, that it did exist, was beautiful, but the staff there had never heard of someone called "Simon".  I can unequivocally say the Regal Palms does, in fact, exist and that "Simon" owns a home there. My dealings with you went perfectly.  I would rent from you again without hesitation and despite my concerns, I would definitely go back to Regal Palms. It was beautiful.

Anyone who wants to enjoy a beautiful home at a beautiful resort just 15 minutes from Disney should contact you. Simon, as to whether I’d consider returning, the answer is ABSOLUTELY. My family and my brother’s family thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and felt very relaxed at your place.  I already have friends and co-workers asking about Regal Palms.  I would highly recommend Regal Palms to them and anyone who is planning a trip to Disney.  So, please, feel free to post my comments!" (Since writing this, Fred has indeed, returned to our house on vacation)

Jackie & Glen, Ramsey, MN USA

"We've just returned from our week in Florida at your Regal Palms property. Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the home.  It was beautiful and very comfortable. And the pool area was magnificent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay"

Kelly, Virginia Beach VA, USA

"We enjoyed our vacation staying in your townhome. We planned two days at the pool and both days were the most fun. The pool was heated and my daughter enjoyed the slide. The staff is very friendly and we even got to check in a few hours early. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. I will certainly recommend you to my friends and co-workers"

Adrian & Anne, Chris, Cameron, South Australia

"We are now back from our 4 week tour of the US, 1 week of which was spent in your vacation home in Florida. The arrangements went without a hitch and we were very impressed with your accommodation and
Regal Palms in general. The location was also great. In answer to whether I would return, most definitely! If anyone asked me about accommodation options I would suggest to them that they simply book your house and save themselves the time of trying to sort through the 1001 options that the Orlando area has on offer!! In looking at other properties around the area I cannot believe that anyone would go for one of the pool homes that exist in such large numbers. They are stuck in the middle of nowhere with nothing nearby to do. The pools appeared to be not much larger than the average bathtub and the prices charged for heating are ridiculous. It would appear that most Owners have not yet heard of solar heating systems that are so common in my part of the world. They are so much cheaper to run. Feel free to use me as a reference if people have any questions or concerns about making bookings with yourself, Simon. If there are still people that are hesitant about doing business over the net, I would be happy to communicate with anyone that wants to ask any questions."

Beth Paul, Sarah & Michelle VA, USA

"We just arrived home today (we drove). We LOVED your house in Regal Palms. The water park was fantastic. The accommodation was perfect for us. The drive to Disney was very easy, and your shortcut worked very well. Everything worked out well for us. The kitchen was well-equipped, the laundry was a life saver, the AC was at the perfect temperature, the cell phones worked great, the garbage was picked up each morning as promised, the upstairs master suite was huge, we never ran out of hot water, the water pressure was very good and the Publix was extremely convenient! Your FAQ was very useful for us to know what to expect and what to bring/buy. Feel free to use any comments on your website. Also, I would be happy to be a reference if someone wants to e-mail a real person who has stayed in your house. If we come back to Orlando, I will certainly contact you again about renting your house. There is a possibility that we will have a yearly trade conference there. I am keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks again for everything!"

Rochelle, Roy, Joyce, Rita, Judith, Felisha, Elijah, & Breanah NY USA

"I am writing you to let you know that we had such a
grrrrrrrrrrrrrreat time at your beautiful townhome. I can't thank you enough, everyone had a ball!!! I thank you so very much and really appreciate you letting us into your vacation home. I look forward to renting again in the future."

Pat, Margueritte, Michael & Niamh, Co Kildare, Ireland

"I would just like to say briefly now that we had an absolutely marvellous time and your house and the Regal Palms Resort was way beyond our expectations. It was brilliant! You can use our comments on your website if you wish & you can use me as a Referee."

Dave, Karen & the Kids, Kent, UK

"Sorry not dropped you a line since we have returned from your place at Regal Palms. Its always so busy after a holiday you wonder why you went sometimes. Having said that we had a great time at the Regal Palms Resort and your place was perfect for us. I am delighted that everything ran smoothly and everything was as you said it would be. Many thanks for your house and we will be emailing you again soon for next year."

Heather, Jim, Melissa, Jay, Carly, Braedon & Pam, Ontario, Canada

"Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that we had a wonderful vacation!!!! It was just as you promised...maybe even a little bit better....Thanks for that. I've already talked about Regal Palms to a few of my friends, so who knows who you'll hear from. Even the weather was perfect...did you set that up for us as well.....Good job!!!! It's so hard these days what with all the internet scams going on, to gain people's trust. I have to admit that the thing that gave me some peace of mind was when I paid by PayPal (I've never actually used that program before) and to see all your prior transactions. It was reassuring to see that everyone who has conducted business with you had a positive experience. That definitely helped me proceed with the transaction. Well we're a little Disneyed-out right now, but you never know, in a couple of years we may be ready to conquer Universal & Sea World; in any case, we had a fantastic vacation and the resort was absolutely beautiful!!! Highly recommended!!! Looking forward to doing business with you in the future and thanks again for the positive experience".

"We just returned from our vacation at your villa in Regal Palms. It was wonderful! The house and resort were beautiful. It was everything I had hoped it would be. Thank you for everything. I will certainly return to Regal Palms for my next trip to Florida"

Colin & Sandra, Charlotte & Alex, Tilbury, Essex UK
"What a great time we had! The house was great, and the pool was also a great success with everyone especially the kids. They didn't want to leave - neither did we. We're hoping to go back to Florida in a couple of years time so we'll definitely be in contact. Thanks for all your information and help it came in very useful."

Connie, Matthew & Adam, Kingston, Ontario, Canada

"Just wanted to say "thank you" for the awesome accommodation. We really enjoyed the house and the Resort. My two teenage boys loved the pool and the fact that they had their own bedrooms to come back to after our day of adventures. The house was so darn clean. It was definitely a fantastic vacation and will recommend you to anyone who asks. I would love for you to use my reply to show/verify to others that your house is as awesome as you tell them. You can also use me as a “Referee”, I don’t mind at all!
Regal Palms a great place for a vacation!
"

Tina & Craig, Sheffield, UK

"Just wanted to say what a lovely time we had whilst staying in your villa in Florida. The villa was fantastic as was the resort and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We will certainly be booking with you in the future & will be recommending the resort, and in particular your villas, to all our family and friends"

John, Claire, Joanna, Elisa & Sophie (age 10, 9 & 5), Northampton UK

"We had a great time. Easy check-in. Accommodation and facilities as promised. Our girls were in the pool everyday except for the days we got out early to the parks or coast (have you been to Fort De Soto? Really worth the trip!) Other than a couple of overnight storms, the weather was fine. In short, we would not hesitate to recommend yourself and Regal Palms. I will be passing your web address to some friends"

Brian, Lynn, Ian, Helen, Midlothian, Scotland

"Thanks Simon! We have had a great time and would recommend it to anyone. We had no problems over the time - it was busy as expected (being Easter) but the house was 'found well' and 'left well' with no problems. When I catch up here at work I shall send some photos for your website!!" Brian

Jan, Nina, Trudi & Frida (age 17 & 10) Norway

"We have now been home for a week, and things are slowly coming back to normal. I would just like to say thank you for the fact that the house we rented was even nicer than we expected. A wonderful stay all in all, and the pool area & everything about it, was absolutely wonderful.

David, Sassy, Annie, Joseph, Donald, & Gilbert, Texas, USA

"WOW!!! Our holiday was great, Florida had great weather and friendly people. What made our holiday even better was your fabulous home. My whole family felt so at home and easy going it made our adventure in Florida that much more memorable. The ease of it all with me being pregnant was another bonus, Thanks you!! The waterslide, lazy river and hot tub at the resort were just what was needed after spending all day walking at the Theme Parks and shopping on International Drive. Having the Spa and Gym on hand was great too. The convenience and location of the Resort to all the Theme Parks, Beaches, Area Attractions and Shopping was wonderful. We are talking about going back next year, but maybe spending a bit more time. Hope we can use your lovely home again. Also hope you don't mind we have passed along your rental website to some friends that are talking about going to Florida this coming Summer. Again Thanks yea so very much for letting us come into yea home!

   

Reinaldo, Veronica, Carolina, & Nicole, Buenos Aires, Argentina

I just wanted to thank you for everything, we had a great time and everything was hassle free. In the beginning it was just "too perfect" to be true, it really did look like a scam ;) .  I even sent an email to Regal Palms to check that you were a legitimate Owner. Maybe in the UK or US there is more "customer protection" but in places like Latina America this would be a risky operation. Well just wanted to let you know that I'll strongly recommend your services to friends who might come to Orlando for vacations. Best regards !!

Derek & Angela, Northumberland, UK

"Just a few lines to say we had a fabulous time in your villa.  The whole Florida experience was again fantastic.  Found the Regal Palms resort no problem, staff very helpful although we did not see that much of them as we were out most of the time.  The pool was something else, what a great way to relax after a hectic day at the Malls spending Uncle Sam's like their is no tomorrow.

Many thanks for the way you conducted the transaction from booking to arrival.  The villa itself was very nice and I would have no hesitation of recommending you to all my friends and family.  One minor point that you need to be made aware of.  All smoke detectors activated during the two weeks.  A bit of a problem when they were going off at 03.00a.m.  Do not worry, your villa has not burnt down (wicked Geordie humour) the problem was the batteries needed changing.  When staff contacted the Maintenance Man was around within thirty minutes.  All in all fabulous time, excellent villa, no money left but 'What the Hell'!  I will be contacting you again regarding Sept next year"

Anne, Robert, Josh, Laura, Robert, & Ruth Sacramento, CA, USA

"I just wanted to take a minute and let you know that we had a very pleasant stay at your town home.  I was a bit worried after reading some very unflattering reviews of the Regal Palms.  I was pleasantly surprised however to find none of those problems at your town home, and that it was close to the pool complex.  The kids LOVED the pool and we had enough space for 6 people.  Most of the negative reviews had to do with the distance to the Walt Disney World Resort. The amenities and the value for our money was well worth it. It actually only took 10 minutes to get to Disney, even without using your recommended "short cut".  Staying on the Disney property was so expensive and they did not have the same amenities in the rooms (full kitchen, washer/dryer, separate bedrooms, larger square footage).  We certainly got more "bang for our buck".  I will remember your town home the next time we travel to Orlando"

Diane, Plymouth, MA, USA

"We just got home from staying at your place and I wanted to say thank you.  The resort was wonderful my entire family had an awesome time. Everything went really well, not one problem, & we hated to see our vacation come to an end. The resort was unbelievable, kept everyone busy the entire trip & the location was great.  My personal favorite was being served drinks poolside. I was a little nervous booking this over the internet but everything looked and worked out perfectly and we would love to stay their again which I will be in touch with you to book after the Holidays.  Thanks again for everything we had a fabulous time".

Linda, Paul & Ryan, London, UK

"Just thought we would drop you a line and tell you we had a fantastic time in your villa. It was excellent. Ryan enjoyed himself 100%. The whole resort is brilliant. Will pass on your website details. We are coming back in 2007 hopefully. This will then be our 8th time. we will book you again then"

Aaron and Chaya, New Jersey, USA

"After spending hours searching for a reasonable villa in a nice place online, we finally somehow found Simon with his villa in the Regal Palms Resort. We were very cautious about it being a scam so we contacted the resort to find out if it was real and if "Simon" was real. After getting it confirmed, we booked the trip. When we arrived we were very happy with what we saw. A full kitchen and everything was spotless. The air conditioning was great and the villa was so comfortable. My wife and I even joked about making a house for ourselves to duplicate it.

The best part about the resort was the Regal Palms pool area. When you are by the pool, you feel as though you could be on an island in the Bahamas and not even know the difference. I must have gone down the water slide and around the lazy river about 50 times! There is a wading area for little children and my kids would not want to leave it. They were crawling around in the pool and just loved the feeling of being there in the shallow area. The service was great and the waitresses bring you any drink you want as you lay in the hot sun. Overall it was a great vacation. We didn't even rent a car because Disney is so close and the Publix Supermarket is a 5 minute walk.

I have already recommended 2 friends there and we plan to go back next year too. If your looking for a relaxing time with an amazing pool area and a place kids can enjoy the pool too, with amazing villas, this is the place to go".

      

Barbara, New Jersey USA

"The resort was very nice and the people were even nicer. The staff were all great especially Everett the Manager. He was always there to help with anything I needed. I would definitely recommend your place to all and will be returning. I am even thinking of buying a house & investing in Regal Palms myself now......."

Gillian, County Down, N Ireland

"We really did have a ball! Your property is spotless and extremely well equipped. The boys really enjoyed the pool facilities, in fact they were so impressed that we managed to talk them out of a visit to one of the Water Parks in Orlando! So we really enjoyed a great day in Busch Gardens instead! I have passed on details to a friend who wants to go later on in the year"

Michelle, New Jersey, USA

"Well, with the rise in internet popularity in recent years, this was my first time planning a vacation this way.  Needless to say, I had reservations about blindly arranging my vacation on-line.  However, my wonderful co-worker Sarah assured me that it wouldn’t be a problem.  After viewing your website, we both felt more assured as you and your vacation home seemed very trustworthy.  As a result, she encouraged me to make the reservation for my family and I.

After driving for seventeen hours from New Jersey, we arrived at the villa around 6:30 p.m.  We made pretty good timing considering our van contained five children.  Once my family walked into your house, however, all memory of the last seventeen hours, and the hundreds of “Are we there yets” were gone.  Finding the villa was easy, and checking-in was a quick and painless process. 

The villa was exactly as you had described, with an additional touch of home, which enhanced the ambiance of our environment. As the long drive made us very hot and tired, I took the children for a walk to check out the pool and game areas.  The pool was empty, which made my children want to jump in even more! We were more than pleased with the arrangements.  My sister was also happy as she and daughter had their own space away from the smaller children. We all felt as if we were in the comfort of our own home.  We did have a small problem with the television in the bedroom; however, maintenance was quick and efficient in getting the problem resolved.  Finally, the landscaping was beautiful and the music at the pool area made every day of our vacation tranquil and relaxing. Thank you for making my family’s Florida vacation a success!  We hope to be back to your beautiful house in Regal Palms soon.

Eric, Québec, Canada

All the family would like to thank you for playing a big part in our wonderful vacation out in Florida.  It is not a simple thing sometimes to establish trust over the internet and I readily admit that I have been sceptical at times but everything was exactly like you described it and more.  The house was so enjoyable that we have been able to accomplish even more than we had planned for originally. In fact, we would have all stayed there much longer but vacations are of short nature.  Maybe we plan longer next time!"

Kristine & Glenn, New Hampshire USA

"We had such a wonderful time staying at your beautiful townhouse at Regal Palms!  There was space for everyone!  The location is perfect, close to Disney so we could get a full day of fun in, and then sit back and relax by the pool/clubhouse in the evenings! The Management was very courteous and friendly. The outside chairs in our 4 bedroom home were perfect for enjoying the evenings on the patio after the children went to bed. Our children absolutely LOVED the pool.  My two and a half year old daughter continues to ask to go back to the "Florida Pool." We truly had a wonderful vacation and look forward to renting from you next May".

Gabby & Mark, Epsom, Surrey, England, UK

"I’ll be honest with you and say that I found it a bit nerve wrecking to begin with when I found your property on the web. You just don’t know what you are going to get in reality. I needn’t have worried; everything was as it looked on your site.

When we walked into the house it was as we all thought it would be and the rooms were even bigger than we had imagined. The house was very clean and tidy. The bedroom downstairs was ideal for my elderly parents. It was brilliant to have so much space for the kids and for them to have their own bathroom. The cot for Ellie was very practical but the cot linen was not provided though, but it only took a quick trip to Reception for it to be sorted. I initially thought she was too small for the booster seat but she actually fitted very well and it was the nicest one we have seen! I personally loved the fact that there was a separate laundry room, we used it every day and got through a whole box of soap powder in our short stay which is a bit sad!! But hey, no washing to do on arrival back at home!

We were also very impressed that the rubbish got collected every day and were given replacement bags. The staff at Reception were all very friendly and helpful. We had lunch once in the restaurant. The waiter was very good and dealt with everything very professionally. (Pizza Mia next to the Publix is also very good) The pool was beautiful! The slide and lazy river were great fun and there was plenty of seating. The Tikki hut is ready at the entrance of the pool where they check your name and they also sell swimming nappies, goggles, sun lotion etc. We thought the location was ideal as we rather not stay in a busy resort (we obviously don’t know what it’s like during school holidays) It was lovely and quiet but didn’t feel isolated. The directions were absolutely brilliant!

All in all I would recommend your place at Regal Palms to my friends!!! Ideal for families and I would not be surprised if we return ourselves!"

Annette, Lawrenceville, GA USA

"Everything was beautiful, and just as you said it would be.  We had the very best of times and well...it was a fantastic vacation. Checked-Out in the morning around 10:30 am with Melissa.  No problems at all. The Check-In and Out were very smooth, and the staff helpful when the need arose.  The rooms are well appointed and everything was clean and ready for our visit.  We really enjoyed the condo, pool, etc...The boys (okay the entire family) loved the pool area!  The lazy river was great and the water slide kept us all entertained for hours.  You are truly too good to be true.  You made our vacation so easy and relaxed.  I will email you when we are ready to visit Orlando again. I've already started telling everyone about you and your house!"

Hank, Wisconsin, USA

"Just wanted to THANKS for the use of your home while we vacationed in Florida. Your home was one of the best places we have ever stayed at. Everything was as expected. The home was VERY clean and well equipped. We were pleased to find out that it was exactly as pictured and described on the internet. We felt very secure at the resort. My daughter really enjoyed the pool area, especially the Waterslide! We will be returning in Feb 2006"

Karen, Neil, Josh & Ted, Worcestershire, England, UK

"Just to say what a great time we had in Florida in your home. The location and resort were first class, we only wish we had been there longer to enjoy all the facilities...right from our first inquiry to availability, through to payment of our booking, your website was simple, honest and efficient.

We arrived in Orlando for the first time in the dark, in a torrential thunderstorm but still managed to drive straight to the resort with your very accurate directions, to find the lovely house just as it looks in the photo's. Thanks for everything. We hope to use you again soon!"

Stuart, Quebec, Canada

"Well, we had a great week, everything was exactly what it looked like on your web site. Your house was spotless when we arrived and we appreciated the four bedrooms. The location was also excellent, access to everything was easy. We all loved the water park especially the kids, they were sad they had to leave.

I am actively involved on our forum or chat web site at work. So if I hear of anybody looking for a place in Orlando I'll be sure to mention your property.

Thanks again!"

Don, Littleton, Colorado, USA

"My wife and four children, ages 5 through 14, recently spent a week in your three bedroom villa at Regal Palms.  We had a wonderful time.  The villa was clean, quiet, well furnished, and the beds were comfortable.  The swimming pool was fantastic.  The water was warm, and my children spent hours on the water slide and playing in the lazy river. 

We spent three days at Disney World, and I'm quite certain that my younger children enjoyed the pool at Regal Palms more than the theme parks.  The villa was within several miles of Disney, and we were able to get to the Parks in approximately 15 to 20 minutes.  However, traffic near Disney sometimes slows to a crawl.   The villa suited our needs much better than a hotel or private home would have, and it was much more economical than either of those options.  We would not hesitate to stay at this villa again."

"Wanted to tell you what a fabulous home you have and how much we enjoyed our stay at the Regal Palms.  The house was very clean, quiet, and convenient to all the places we wanted to visit!  The front desk staff as well as the bar and grill attendants were very friendly and helpful.  The pool complex was a huge hit with my 5 year old as well as my much older husband!  The water-slide and lazy river we just right after a fun day at the parks!  

We had such a lovely time that I just raved about your home to my family and friends!  We would love to stay with you again in 2006 if you have it available!"

"...we had an absolutely wonderful time!  In fact, the vacation could not have been more perfect! Your townhouse at Regal Palms was beautiful and was much nicer than staying at a hotel.  Your directions were perfect, the check in (and out) process was extremely easy, we met some very nice people in the "community," felt totally safe walking around after dark, and felt very pampered. We would love to stay there again in the future!  I'll be giving positive feedback to the Villa search engine"

"What can I say other than we had a fantastic time...the house was fab. We found it very homely and comfortable with plenty of space. Much bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside. We loved the pool on the days we decided to have a day off and stay at home. We used the Clubhouse a few times to eat. The quality and portion size of the food was good. The staff were very friendly and obliging. We found the position of the Complex ideal, and found your directions very easy to follow.

We also got through customs relatively quickly as well, with no problems with passports, visas etc, so all in all it was fantastic!

I would have no hesitation in recommending (or returning to) Regal Palms for a holiday in Florida, the villas and facilities are lovely...first class."

"I just wanted to say we had a wonderful time at your villa. The house was in great shape and immaculate. The pool area was great to come back to after a long day at the Disney parks. it was perfect for my two young children. Once again, thanks."

A special thanks to all my great guests for agreeing to allow me to publish their kind words... Simon
