DISNEY'S TYPHOON LAGOON WATER PARK

DISNEY'S TYPHOON LAGOON WATER PARK

One of our favourite days out is a water park, there's something for everyone.

If you want a relaxing day you can just sit on your lounger and take in the sights and sounds or soak up the Florida sunshine.

For the more adventurous there are fantastic water slides, some are quite tame but there are some white knuckle rides too

We love the lazy river and float around and around

For water park information see:- disneyworld.disney.go.com/search/?searchQuery=water+parks&autoSuggestedQuery=

5 STAR REVIEW

5 STAR REVIEW

I just got the most wonderful review for the villa:-

You just have to read the other reviews, every one gives this villa full marks, and I totally understand why.

This was our 6th visit to Orlando, and without doubt this has been the best villa we have stayed in.

From the moment we first entered the villa you could just feel comfort and cleanliness. It had everything you could ask for, ipod docks, , xbox, DVD player and movies, and a great selection of tv chanels, as well as a great games room. The whole villa was tastefully decorated, and the rooms spacious. There was 2 unsuite bedrooms and 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds in each.

The pool area was lovely, with sun shine all day long. We said this year we would stay in the villa more, instead of going out every day, and it was lovely for us all to congregate and just chill by the pool with a few beers, and a couple of times I put the BBQ on. Even though there was 8 of us there, the place seemed spacious, but my favourite spot was the settee in the front room of the house, where you could get away from all the madness, and just keep up to date with whats going on in the world.

This Villa is in Highgate Park on Highway 27 about a mile from Highway 192 towards Haines City, and its a gated community which also gives you peace of mind.

Dealing with the owner was a pleasure, and any queries where dealt with inside a couple of hours. I loved the nice wee touch of leaving my granddaughter a Disney passport cover. Its these simple things that makes us want to come back here, and we will.

We go to Orlando every 2 years or so, and this villa will be our first port of call. The whole experience from first finding this villa, to booking it, to the payments, to deposit being returned promptly has been first class.

OUR LATEST REVIEW

OUR LATEST REVIEW

Arkvilla is a very beautiful, well appointed villa located within a gated community, only a 12-15 minute drive to the iconic Archway at WDW. There are several grocery stores, supermarkets, pharmacies and restaurants very close by.

As soon as you walk through the front door you can see how much love, care, pride and time has been devoted by the owners (Sandra & Jai) into making this a home from home. All the furniture / furnishings have obviously been chosen with great care and are well looked after. The villa is very well equipped with lots of those 'little extras' you don't often find in rental homes (a couple that spring to mind are egg cups and sealable food containers). There are even towel hooks and hair-dryers in the bathrooms. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable, with plenty of good quality linens and towels etc.

The Games Room complete with Xbox, air hockey, pool table – to name but a few – is a fantastic feature. Sandra & Jai also provide a couple of bicycles for guests to use. If you have younger children you also have the use of a stroller, car seat, travel cot and high chair. If you fancy a day 'at home' there's also lots of DVD's, Xbox games and family board games to keep the family occupied.

The private (heated) swimming pool (with removable safety fence if you have young children) is a welcome way to relax after a day at the parks or as a 'down day' and several pool toys were available. There are also a couple of safety vests provided for those with youngsters learning to swim. The pool / decking / patio area is a very good size with plenty of comfortable chairs and loungers. Good quality pool towels are provided (another bonus as it saves you room in your luggage for all the souvenirs you will want to buy).

Sandra is very helpful & friendly, nothing is too much trouble and she answered all my questions / queries promptly. And believe me, I had quite a few! In fact I feel like I've made a new friend. We have stayed in many wonderful villas over the last 20 years and I can honestly say I wish I had found Arkvilla (and Sandra) sooner! Thank-you for sharing your home.
