We enjoyed our second visit to Sarah's wonderful villa from 15th-29th September 2019. It truly is a perfectly located villa if you want a combination of peace from the noise of the tourist spots but at the same time as being of easy reach to them. We enjoyed amazing sunshine and high temperatures and the Peppermill Villa provided everything we required when we were not out and about enjoying Universal Studios, baseball at St Pete's, the amazing restaurants, shops, and even more shops. The pool was a place of great fun and respite from the heat. The air conditioned villa with a great selection of TV channels, comfortable furniture and the addition of a fridge/freezer with a constant supply of cold water and ice was put to use so many times (it's small additions like this that really matter). The villa is spacious and is a very relaxing place to spend the evening the later part of the evening, eating dinner from the local pizza place or Chinese takeaways. I would recommend this villa to any group of grown ups or families, and Sarah as a well organised and considerate host. We'll be back in 2020.

Had a fantastic time in Sarah's villa. Spring break - busy but super sunny, first time in 9 visits for there to be no thunderstorms!! The location was perfect for us, out of the 'limelight' of Orlando and International Drive. Pool deck was lovely, with a lot of space to relax and a lovely view of the lake complete with 6 heron type birds! Beds were extremely comfy also!

Best house rental we have ever had! Sarah and Michelle were easy to work with. Everyone slept great and the house was big enough to let the 5 of us spreadout. House has ample nice towels for the pool and showers. The updated flooring in the main areas was very nice. Pool was clean and relaxing. We used the DVD player and hung out in family room one night and had no problems with entertainment units and Wifi is easy to connect to. Lots of chairs and loungers outside by pool to sit on. Fairly quiet neighborhood with the occasional wildlife birds walking around. The master bathroom was wonderful. Only used the shower but it also has a nice soaking tub. Nice large master walk-in closet with plenty of hangers. The refrigerator/ freezer kept our stuff nice and cold. Ice maker helped with our need for ice for our beach excursions. We had a problem with the garage getting stuck and Michelle from the management company was very helpful and she fast to respond to us. Really could not ask for more. It fit our budget and we were really happy with our stay there. It will be on the top of our list next time we travel to Florida. Thanks! The Hoovers June 2017

We have just returned from a 3 week stay here and what can I say, we loved every minute!!! Location was fantastic to get everywhere, perfect for all of Orlandos major themeparks and easy ride to Clearwater beach and Busch gardens.

5 little ducklings hatched whilst we were these, the mother nesting under a bush at the front of the villa, so cute!! The layout worked perfectly for us, the master bedroom and all the space was something else. We went to the parks every morning and returned in the afternoon for a swim in the pool, the sunsets were to be seen to be believed, perfection looking over the pool and lake as the sun set, we spent a lot of time outside enjoying our time together.

What really stood out for me, from day 1, was the fantastic communication from the villa owners. From day one I was given support, clear communication and I any queries I had were answered promptly and and with thought. A lot of advice was given as to best routes to take, where to eat etc. The villa also had a lot of information as to local eateries, even a Chinese takeaway we ordered from and loved.

Amazing time here and family holiday, we will be back, thank you!!!

12/15/17-12/22/17 This was the best vacation rental we have ever stayed at! The house is beautiful, clean and fully stocked. Plenty of room for six adults and one active 2 ½ year old. The pool is so nice and relaxing as is the beautiful lake behind the house. Sarah is wonderful to work with. She stays in contact with you from the time you book up until after you get home. Any issues were handled quickly and efficiently. We were able to fish in the lake and enjoyed catching some nice bass. My nephew loved the fishing as well as swimming in the pool. The pool safety features really helped ease our mind with him around. Anytime the doors to the pool area or garage are opened, an alarm goes off (nothing too loud) and alerts you someone has opened the door. There was a safety fence around the pool so we didn’t have to worry about him running into the pool. The doors exiting the screened pool area have high door handles, so we didn’t have to worry about him running toward the lake either. My daughter who lives in the Orlando area stayed with us and the kitchen had all we needed to prepare a Christmas dinner for her one night. There are so many extras at the house - pool towels, floats, strollers, a cooler, ice packs, first aid kits (including moleskin – a must if you get blisters from walking in the parks), extra batteries, trash bags, etc. We enjoyed visiting Disney, Sea World, Discovery Cove (swimming with the dolphins!) and Blue Springs State Park (Orange City, FL – manatees!). We shopped at Disney Springs and Ikea. The garage was nice to be able to park the truck in with all of our Ikea finds and not worrying about them getting wet or being stolen. The neighborhood was nice and quiet and we loved looking at all the Christmas lights. We were blessed finding Sarah and her house and look forward to another stay.

1/06/10-15/06/10. As a family of five we had loads of room in your villa, and especially appreciated the master suite with ensuite bath/shower room. The villa was spotless and contained all the facilities and extras we needed..towels/iceboxes/rain wear/inflatebles etc. Arriving in the middle of a really hot spell (40's) the air conditioning and pool were a god-send! Our 3 children practically lived in the pool when we were home! The villa is situated in a really quiet area, with hardly any noise from the neighbours, infact the only noise came from us -sorry! Lots of supermarkets, diners, shops and take-a-ways nearby, and a 40min drive to SeaWorld, Discovery Cove and Aquatica- it was ideal. A lovely villa, that I have already recommended to a friend. Thanks again. Julie and gang.

We very much enjoyed our recent stay at this property. The house was extremely clean and well-appointed. The neighbourhood is well-maintained and quiet. We were impressed by the fact that there is a local agent looking after the property, knowing any concerns could be responded to quickly. We will be booking this property again for our vacation next year.

We had a wonderful experience staying at this house. The drive to Disney World takes a little over 30 minutes and the locals were very accomodating in helping us find alternative routes to and from the area. The house was VERY clean (it actually looked as though the carpets had been shampooed just before we arrived) and any problems which did occur were taken care of immediately. We had very limited time to use the pool, but it was clean and inviting. There was a gas grill as well as a George Foreman grill on which to cook out - nice touches that weren't previously mentioned. The beds were comfortable and the appliances all worked well. Having a garage in which to park was very nice, also - especially since we'd rented a convertible for our vacation. I would absolutely recommend this place to any of my friends. Coming home to a house with three bedrooms and some privacy far outweighs the convenience of an on-resort stay at Disney. Saving a ton of money makes it a given.

Dec. 6-13, 2009 We are 2 retired adults, and had a wonderful time at this beautiful home; much better than staying at a motel. We were lucky enough to meet the owners upon arrival, very friendly people from the U.K. who gave us the grand tour. You could tell that they take good care of everything. The house was very comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked with all utensils one would need, and the patio by the pool, overlooking the lake, was very enjoyable for morning breakfasts or evening relaxing (when we were home). The Christmas tree in the living room and the house lit up in lights was an added bonus for this time of the year! The neighbourhood was very quiet and safe; we enjoyed evening walks looking at all the beautiful Christmas decorations. The drive to Kissimmee/Disney was about 30 minutes (use Poiciana Blvd, then #192/I-4). Also handy for us was taking Poinciana Blvd, to #92 west, to I-4 to get to Tampa. Poinciana has plenty of stores, restaurants, etc. Reccommend the Publix for groceries, and "Slice of New York" for great pizza. All-in-all a wonderful time, and would not hesitate to go back!

March 28 - April 4, 2009 We spent Spring Break in Kissimmee at this Cyress Woods House. It was very clean, met and exceeded our expectations. We are a married couple with a 14 year old. He was very excited and enjoyed the pool. The solar pool cover worked great and the pool was very comfortable after playing all day at Universal Studios. Kitchen was well stocked with all the comfort of home had I wanted to cook, that did not happen once. We will surely be in contact in the future. Thanks for our new memories.

July 14-20, 2009. We took our daughter & two grandkiddies (ages 9 & 11) for five days at DisneyWorld. What a lovely home! Everything was as portrayed in the description & the photos. It was so nice to come back to a relaxing soak in the pool after a full day with Mickey & friends. We would definitely recommend this home to other vacationers. One minor caveat ~ we found it to be a bit farther [daily] drive to DisneyWorld than we'd hoped for... however, if Disney isn't your only destination, it would be a great central starting point to see other attractions in the area. One final note, a huge 'thank you!' to Michelle at Behlor Realty. We booked this trip at the last minute & she was indispensable in helping us find our accommodations. As first time house renters we were very pleased overall with the whole experience & would definitely do it again.

My wife and I spent our delayed honeymoon here after marrying (late in life) the year before, when my teenage kids were with us. We selected Poinciana as being a little way out of the main tourist locations and found the short drive each day the perfect opportunity to review, revise and sometimes even totally change our plans to meet the weather and the way we felt. All the shopping / takeaways you could want nearby. The beautiful lake to look out over with a glass of wine in the evening (sometimes from by the pool – sometimes from in the pool) allowed us to wind down each night. Michelle and her team could not have been more helpful, both before we arrived and with the few queries we had. The house, which contained everything we needed throughout our stay, was immaculate when we arrived, and the maintenance men and women who came and went during our stay were friendly, polite, and very efficient. Very many thanks to all concerned. July 2009, returned again October 2011

June 2008 We had a great time. It was very comfortable. The only disadvantage was we could sleep in because there were no housekeepers or people slamming doors or screaming kids running up and down the hallways. So we got a later start then what we would of normally. But really we got rest which a vacation is meant for. It was awesome having our own pool we could jump in even when we got home later "pool hours". This was by far way better than any hotel I have ever stayed at.

June 2008 Our week long stay was absolutely wonderful. The house is very well maintained and made us feel right at home. This is not our first experience in renting a home versus a hotel, but this is the first time with our own private pool and makes a lot of difference. Everything was great and the neighborhood was quiet and friendly. Disney and Universal were a bit of a distance but after a while we got use to it. I would recommend it to anyone and hopefully will return very soon.

We've spent almost 3 wonderful weeks in your villa and enjoyed it so much that we already reserved again 3 weeks in February 2007. we hope the weather will be as nice as last year,where we hadn´t even one day of rain.We enjoyed bush gardens and sea world, and there we had the opportunity to listen to a concert of that great "FOREIGNER". For our next stay in 2007 we decide to buy an anuual pass for disney, because we use it twice a year.We are really happy looking forward to our next stay in your villa, the great thing is that we already have our confirmed dates and dream the following months till our departure from this wonderful villa, the pool, the king size bed also. Visited 2006, 2007 & 2008

We would like to thank you for the very nice rental home. It was just like home away from home. We had a great time relaxing shopping and dining out, and the pool water was warm even though the outside temp. was cool.

By far the best of any other holiday accommodation we have ever rented, as far afield as NZ and Aus. The pool is excellent and although unheated was warm enough to swim in most of our stay over Xmas 2011. The location a distance (maybe 30 mins) from the theme parks is a bonus as it is semi-rural and avoids the tackiness of Orlando/Kissimmi, yet there is everything you want on your doorstep for provisions and eating out. Sarah and her local agent Michelle bend over backwards to help. BTW for anyone staying at yuletide, the

2008 My family and I recently arrived back from our holiday to Florida and the Disney parks. Although we have written our comments in the guest book at this villa, I felt it was important to use the ‘web’ facility to let other families know in advance about this villa and our experience. 1. The Villa: Immaculate throughout, ( I really mean immaculate) with every item you need to just unpack and get on with it. Air-con, Washing facilities, great kitchen (awesome fridge!), great bedrooms, great everything really. 2. The Pool: As described and just what you need when you are having a day off from the ‘Disney experience’. Pool alarm, arrrrgh! You just have to cope with it, it’s the law. 3. Location: For us it was just perfect. The photo’s do not do it justice. We liked the fact that the villa is out of town slightly. 4. Driving to Disney: We used a Tom-tom (which proved useful) but you can get by using the map from the hire car company. It took us about 40mins to get to most of the parks, however we drive pretty slow and often took detours to look at things / tried different routes. 5. The Airport run: My advice is to get onto the internet and do your research. Google Earth is a good way, and you can see where the villa is, but the photo’s are about 4 years out of date, still it’s a good way to get a feel for the ground. The route is very easy when you know it, but can seem very daunting when you don’t. Be warned, when you leave the airport you have to make decisions almost immediately and unfortunately ‘Tom’ was still getting over the jet lag(finding it’s satellites) !!! Hence we went North instead of South, this was bad and made our journey much longer!! If in doubt when you exit the airport GO SOUTH!! 6. Shopping: There are loads of large supermarkets within a mile or so of the villa. Retail shopping is only 20 mins away and there were some good bargains to be had. The price of good walking boots and trainers is hard to ignore. 7. Eating out: Loads of it everywhere, all good, kids loved it. 8. Money: We just used the credit/debit cards and it was fine. No different than UK except they use the pin thing less than we do. My Mum took travelers check’s which was OK, but she now realizes that a card would have been less hassle. In summery, we had a fantastic time and this was in no small part to the high quality and great location of this villa. I would (and have) recommend using it to anyone. The main reason is that for a family with small children it ticks all the boxes and allows you to arrive and do your thing, be that the ‘Disney marathon’ or just lol about in the sun watching ‘the boy’ fishing on the lake. Many Regards, Mr J Clayton.

3/04/08 - 21/04/08 If anyone is considering renting this villa then I definately recommend it. When we arrived at 02.30 after a very long journey it was so nice to walk into an absolutely immaculate lovely home and beds all made up for us to fall into.So impressed with the standard of accomodation.It has everything you could wish for. The pool is great but pool alarm on doors is very annoying just remember to shut the doors after entering and leaving the pool area or the alarm just keeps going off and it is very loud! Have to mention the bed in the master bedroom,it is just fantastic, so comfy and so huge!! Kids loved it there infact it became quite hard to get them to leave to go to the parks as they were quite happy just being in the pool all day. The views over the lake are great especially at sunset.Neighbourhood was very quiet and only really saw people around at weekends. Local shops are great,Walmart tends to get busy after 2100. Everything is so cheap there. Must go to the outlet mall at Buena Vista, we had to buy another suitcase for all the stuff we bought we really could not resist the bargains. There are loads of places to eat, loved Golden Corall for a buffet type meal as it has everything you could wish for. We were called by Sarah once and the management company once to be sure all was OK and there was a number for the management company on fridge if we needed them which was very reassuring. A guy came to clean the pool once.Finding your way around it a bit of a nightmare but you do get used to it. Villa to 192 about 15 mins drive, Villa to Disney about 25mins. Driving everywhere did become a bit tedious but on speaking to a few people who were staying right in the thick of all the comotion they were getting a bit sick of it so it was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle. Would definately use this villa again.
