 *****5/5 Great stay

The place was clean, check in and out was very easy. We would definitely recommend if needing a place in the Orlando area Noah D. 1/7/2022 at 5:48 PM

Owner response on 1/8/2022 at 1:44 PM. Happy New Year- thanks for the very kind review. We have arrived at the Villa for our winter stay and have begun reshaping the landscape and tweaking things that need attention inside the villa. I hope you enjoyed the Christmas season at Disney. Cheers and stay safe.

 ***** 5/5 Great location, great property

We recently went to Orlando to go to the parks to celebrate our oldest 16th birthday. We brought my mom with us who was recently widowed so having adequate space for 6 people was very important. Thomas was great to communicate instructions for the property right after booking. It was a nice surprise when we got there that they left flowers, a box of chocolates and a birthday balloon for our birthday boy. The layout of the property was perfect for what we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with anything you’d need, plenty of towels, etc. We enjoyed the game room and pool and hot tub every night. The property is a great location from the parks. We had an excellent experience and would stay there again and highly recommend to anyone looking for a place in the area. Cara R. 12/18/2021 at 4:55 PM

Owner response on 12/19/2021 at 12:57 PM. Glad things were as you dreamed. You were amazing guest. It was our privilege to be your host. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas. You, your family and your friends are always welcome at Chattysdream. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Tom and Kathy


***** 5/5 Orlando Getaway

The entire process to rent out ChattysDream was easy and seamless. All questions were answered with either the messages sent back and forth between myself and the lister or with the informative booklet that they provided upon checking in. Fantastic stay from start to finish for myself and the other guests. Kameron.12/9/2021 at 12:42 AM.

Owner response on 12/9/2021 at 12:59 AM. Well Kathy and I are super glad, it all worked out as you dared to dream. We all praise the Lord that he constantly sends us such amazing guest. We like it when guest ask questions after they have booked the villa. It affirms that we will be hosting great guest. Thanks for taking great care of our home. We look forward to arriving on Jan 2 for our winter stay. Have a wonderful Holiday season.


*****5/5 Great Home, Great Owner, Great Communication, Will be back!

Communication with the Owner from the time I made the reservation through check out has been outstanding. The home is exactly as described and shown in the pictures. The kitchen is stocked with ample dishes, cookware, small appliances and gadgets. Best stocked kitchen I have ever had in a rental property. There is also ample towels, linens, pillows and extra blankets. Everything was very clean upon our arrival. We enjoyed the heated pool, hot tub, game room and board games in the home. The beds are very comfortable and relaxing with our feet up in one of the five recliners was great after a full day at the parks. I can't say enough good things about the home, Owner, communication and responsiveness. You can't go wrong choosing this home. Kameron H.

11/28/2021 at 2:31 PM

Owner response:  2/20/2022: Kay, I am sitting in the gamesroom with door open and enjoying the view and getting caught up. Kathy was very sick for most of November with a non-covid virus and I just noticed that I did not respond to your November review. I owe you an apology, as you were great guest, amazing to work with and it was an honor to have you at our home. Please accept this as my apology - I will do better in the future. Have a wonderful year. Tom


***** 5/5 Mission Park Home

We had a great stay at this property. The house was clean, comfortable, and in a great location. The owners were great to work with. Would recommend this property to others staying in central Florida. Very convenient location to WDW and Universal. Tracey P. 11/20/2021 at 4:53 PM.

Owner response on 11/20/2021 at 8:51 PM. Tracy-thanks for your kind words. Glad you enjoyed the villa and thanks for taking great care of Chattysdream. Have a great holiday season and a super 2022. You are always welcome at Chattysdream.


***** 5/5 Wonderful stay at this impeccably maintained residence!

First, I have to say this is hands down the cleanest property we have ever stayed at... and we have enjoyed stays at many beautiful properties over the years. Communication was great, and everything was perfect-- no hiccups or complications, just a FABULOUS stay at this beautiful property! Since the temperatures had been on the chilly side in FL, we coordinated in advance to have the pool heated starting a few days early. That was all taken care of for us, and the pool was a wonderful temperature despite temperatures that dipped into the 40s at night! We hope to make this a regular stay when we're in town for running events. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!

11/12/2021 at 2:51 PM

Owner response on 11/13/2021 at 1:02 AM Mike: Thank you for your very kind and complimentary comments. Kathy and I are so glad the villa met your expectations and that you enjoyed your stay. Hope your running event went well. You were a great guest and easy to work with. Thanks for taking excellent care of our home away from home.

 *****5/5 Wonderful Villa in Mission Park

This was the perfect place for us. We loved the area, it was close to all the theme parks, restaurants, grocery stores, outlets and Wal-Mart was only a short drive away. The villa gives you that your home feeling as soon as walk in the door and is beautifully decorated. We spent many days lounging by the pool and just relaxing. Our grandson swam every day in that wonderful pool and certainly had a great time. The tunnel lights in the kitchen and living room provided great lighting throughout the day and evening although I was constantly looking for the light switch lol. The communication with Tom and Kathy and Debbie and Kevin was fabulous they answered every call or text within minutes. I cannot think of one bad thing about our vacation unless to say two weeks was not long enough. We would definitely love to stay again. Thank you for sharing your wonderful house with us. God bless Loren, Betty and Jonathon. 9/28/2021 at 3:13 PM

Owner response on 10/1/2021 at 12:28 AM. Thanks for the very kind words. We were blessed to have the opportunity to be your host. From your first email to your last, your communications always breathed a thread of kindness. We are so glad you enjoyed the villa and glad that grandson enjoyed the pool. You and your family and friends are always welcome at Chattysdream. How God's connects us with such people like you, amazes me. We are blessed and it's hosting people like you that makes sharing our home a dream worth dreaming. Thanks for taking such great care of our home. By the way, I also look for that light switch-thinking the lights are on, but it is only the outside shinning inside. Cheers and God Bless You All.


 **** 4/5 Family Vac

5 people 3 generations for week at the theme parks. House was great. No problems. 96 degrees at the parks so pool was a welcome site. Lots of restaurants nearby, groceries close by and Disney a short drive. Highly recommend and would stay again if I need a place in that area. William M.  9/13/2021 at 10:41 AM

*****5/5 Always a pleasure!

The property is exactly as described here, and is a spacious, lovely place to stay when visiting the Orlando area. It's about 20 minutes from Disney, and was a welcome respite from long days in the parks (and crowds). We all loved being able to relax in the pool every day. We've stayed here before - Chattysdream is our favorite rental in the Orlando area, and we'll be back for sure! The owners are wonderful people and great to work with. Sarah R. 6/16/2021 at 11:11 AM.

Owner’s response:Thanks for the very kind review. We appreciate it and Kathy.


*****5/5 Friend’s reunion.

We celebrated 65th birthdays for 3 of the 4 of us at this wonderful home. We enjoyed ourselves so much. It is close to Disney and all the parks. 69 miles from Daytona Beach and 78 from beautiful Coco Beach. Getting up each morning having coffee at the pool was heaven. Easy check in with lots of communication. Yvonne C.  5/23/2021 at 10:09 PM.

Perfect location for any adventure in the area! We went to Sea World, Kennedy Space Center, Disney Springs, and Gatorland. Coming to a home was what we needed for our stay. Highly recommend! Clean and nice. Heather S. 4/23/2021 at 4:16 PM.

***** 5/5 Absolutely Wonderful

What a great place to stay! The house was clean, cared for, and perfect for 6 of us. It had everything we needed and wanted. From the games in the garage to the pool, hot tub, and grill, we used them all and had a blast doing so. Tom and Kathy were GREAT to work with as they were kind and considerate. They partnered with a responsive management company (we had questions about how to use the pool heater controls and the guy was there in less than 10 minutes!) Really enjoyed our stay and can't say enough positive things about the place and the owners / mgmt company. We hope to return one day. Paul F. 4/13/2021 at 1:36 AM.

Owner response: Paul, Thanks for all the kind words. We were excited to be your host and glad you had a great time. Our door is always open for you, your family and friends. And thanks for taking great care of our winter home. We get the best guest.

 ***** 5/5

Date of Arrival: March 13, 2020

This was our first time renting a VRBO. The property owners were amazing to work with and the home was so clean and beautifully decorated. We were supposed to be there for a week and unfortunately COVID-19 cut our plans to just two days at the house. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub as it was perfect. The kitchen was well stocked with supplies that we would need and cooking utensils. Will definitely try to rent this home if we are ever in the area again. Ann B. Minnesota.

Owner Note: We were excited to have you at the villa and given how fast the world changed, I think you arrived at a good decision to protect your family and we were happy to work with you to quickly change your plans. Glad you arrived home safely.

Great Property! Date of Stay December 28-January 4, 2020

We really couldn’t ask for a better place to stay. Pool and hot tub were perfect, the kids loved the game room. The bedrooms were bigger than we expected and there were tons of great little things. Walmart and Publix are close by and  there is a fruit stand a quarter of a mile away. Lastly, the drive from the house to both Universal and Disney was easy. 01/06/2020 at 3:09 AM Brandon P.

*****5/5 Dream spot for a 3-generation family! Date of Stay: November 11-November 20, 2019

Our family has just returned from nine delightful days at Chattysdream! There were many highlights including: the large pool and spa with lush surrounding foliage providing privacy, five automated recliners including two with heat and massage features, two generous master suites, one with a large soaking tub and the other a generous shower, firm and comfortable beds and pillows, and a well-stocked kitchen. I especially appreciated the Kurig coffee machine and the tasteful wild-animal decorations. The home was spotless when we arrived, and the local maintenance service responded quickly and efficiently when we called about a few minor issues (burned-out light bulbs and a slow-draining sink). The Claremont location was perfect for us, since we only spent one day at a Disney park (Animal Kingdom). The home was centrally located for our other excursions including Kennedy Space Center, Clearwater Beach, Universal, and Boggy Creek Airboats. Overall, we could not have chosen a better place for our family vacation!

***** 5/5 Very clean and comfortable villa! Date of Stay: October 4-October 18.

This is the best villa in the Orlando area we stayed in. It is very clean and well maintained. It has all the things you need in your vacation. I would recommend the villa for up to 6 people. We will definitely try to stay here again when we are back in the Orlando area. It was 100% as described and set up perfectly. Communication with the owners has been totally worry free and friendly.

Tom and Kathy are amazing. The house was beautiful with all the comforts of home. It was quiet at night and a very safe neighbor hood. As a female that travels alone with her grandchildren I felt very comfortable at the house even taking walks at night . It was located so you could easily get to all the attractions in Orlando with in a few minutes The grocery store was also 5 minutes from the house. Every thing was in working order and very clean . The pool was heaven and private after a long day at the parks . I would definitely book this house again for my next Florida vacation.

Some stores even deliver groceries in the area. The home is a short drive to Walt Disney World parks. We have already inquired about future dates.

Anonymous! Date of Stay -April 20 -April 29, 2019.

I very rarely write reviews. But I have to say my family and I come here almost every year for the past six. It’s literally home away from home. It’s so comfortable that if we don’t want to go to the parks we want to stay home and stay by the pool. It’s the most comfortable place we have ever stayed. So many special touches added by the owners so that those renting enjoy their time in Florida. Close to beautiful state parks & blueberry picking & wineries. Also not too far from all the Disney parks and tourist places. If you want to be close enough by far enough away - this is the perfect place! Amazing hosts and amazing management team. Love !!!


 *****5/5 Everything was well planned. Even a spare LNG tank. Great hosts.

Left on Nov 19, 2018 for a stay in Nov 2018

A lovely home well equipped with all high end . From dishes to furniture and appliances. Everything you could want and then some. We enjoyed the heated large pool and hot tub every day. We had a 4 year old and 20 month old baby and having a double stroller and high chair and playpen were great unexpected treasures in the home. It was even nice to have plastic dishes and sippy cups for the children. As well as crystal glasses for adults. There was plenty of room for everyone in our group. It was a delight to stay in such a beautiful well equipped new home. Thank you Tom and Cathy

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at your fantastic holiday villa. It truly met our needs. 

Of particular merit to us was the calibre of the entertainment system, free WiFi and the play room in the garage. With weary teenage children it was essential to keep them occupied at the rare downtime we had. The 2 king sized beds were particularly comfortable. 

I will complete the survey shortly and also post on trip advisor. 

Thank you once again for your assistance prior to our arrival it was most reassuring.

We loved it!! Four Stars

We have stayed in several properties over the years, but I could honestly said your house felt like home, we all enjoyed everything about it, we just fell in love. The pool was amazing, even without the swimming pool light we managed to enjoyed every second there. 
The house is in excellent condition and impecable, better than the description provided in VRBO, you and the management company were always willing to help us whenever something came up. 
Excellent option if you are looking to absolutely enjoyed your vacation, great location, peaceful area, wonderful owners to deal with.
Thank you once again and hopefully until next time.

August 10, 2018 -Harris UK: Amazing Five Stars

We've rented a few homes before and you are always worried that what people say doesn't meet you expectations - well at Chattysdream they exceeded them!!!
After a long flight and horrible airport experience, what a welcome relief to find the home bigger than expected, super clean and cool! No restrictions on aircon, though we never abused this. The pool was clean and great temperature, it had all the home treats mums love - washing machine, drier and dishwasher!! Big fridge and TV's in every room, so no fighting over who watches what. There's a games room in the garage and having the gated area was a nice feeling - something we aren't used to.
The owners and caretaker were very considerate and I could not recommend this home enough - please if you rent from them, treat their home with respect - we want to come back!
Thank you so much for letting us stay- it was the highlight of my holiday (I'm a mum of 3 and not a fan of the parks!)


June 19, 2018- Prasad K. shared- Fantastic experience!! Five Stars

We had a great experience staying at this vacation home. This was a charming house with all the necessary amenities. There were plenty of stuff for everybody’s entertainment- Board games, CDs, pool table, air hockey table etc. There is also a swimming pool which was meshed to keep the bugs out. Overall we had a great experience and would recommend anyone looking for a vacation home around Orlando greater area.

My family and I really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were great, the pool was nice and it wasn’t that far from Disney. I liked that the location was kind of more secluded from all the hustle and bustle of the main roadways. If we ever get the chance we will definitely book again. Huge thank you to the owners as they were very kind and helpful with any questions I had.


May 30,2018, S. Smith: The house is perfect could not get any better. Five Stars.

The house is well equipped in a nice area close enough to Orlando, yet not to close. The pool is new and pool/spa heat was on as requested. The ac air in the villa is just right for sleeping. We have two disabled individuals in our party and this house is just right for us. Shopping is just yards along the main road.

April 16th, 2018: Cindy M says: Wonderful Five Stars: Chattysdream was an amazing vacation rental. We have stayed at multiple VRBO properties and this one was top notch. From the moment we walked in. The villa was spotless, smelled good and very welcoming. I loved the decor inside. The beds were comfortable. As a matter of fact after the first night we stripped down one king bed to see what bedding was.  Needless to say we purchased a new mattress when we got home. We enjoyed pool mostly in the evenings after a busy day at the park. The location was perfect for groceries, restaurants and not too far from the parks. The villa was stocked with everything you need to cook meals and the gas grill was also a plus at no additional charge. The owners were quick to answer any questions we had and genuinely cared about us having a fantastic holiday. We will definitely be back to Chattysdream. Thank you Tom and Kathy for sharing your beautiful home with us. CHEERS.

 Good Evening. We are back home in NJ now. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in your beautiful home. After exhausting days at the park, it was wonderful to return to a quiet, spacious home. I do have one question- I am anticipating receiving the full amount of our security deposit. Since our credit card number has recently changed, I am wondering how I can receive the security deposit back.

   It seems that Bank’s are forever issuing new cards due to security breeches, so the card we paid with is no longer valid. I looked on listing site but I didn't see any topics that fit this issue. Thank you for your help!

Owner Note: Since security deposit’s go back on the SAME cc the easiest and best solution in this case, since it was a US rental, was to mail the $200 refund check. Check that one off-cheers Tom.

Hi Tom, just wanted to say thanks again for everything during our stay at Chatty's during Hurricane Matthew in October, you really know how to take care of your guests.  Thanks for working with us to change our time from next March to October.

Owners Note: Glad we could help during that weather change and glad the worst of the hurricane stayed further east. Kathy and I want to thank you and your husband for the wonderful beautiful Keurig Coffee Maker that you bought for the kitchen. We get such amazing guest, year after year, at Chattysdream. Have a great year.

Good evening Mr Sawyer. I trust that you are doing well.

As mentioned before, my family and I totally enjoyed our stay at your home. Everything was perfect. We will be having our church conference again in two years up there and are trying to begin planning as early as possible. We would like to vacation at your home again and definitely stay longer this time. I definitely feel extremely comfortable especially since I've had first hand experience of the unit already.  The dates we are looking at are July 23rd to August 22nd 2018. I would like to begin making down payments and monthly payments as I did before, to avoid the huge lump-some closer to the time.  

I would like for you to send me a pricing and then we can set up a payment plan from there. Thanks a lot! Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi Tom,

Thank you for the nice, easy, and stress free process before, during, and after our stay. We had an amazing time at Chatty's Dream. The villa and property are beautiful. We had a very nice vacation. My friends have the same feelings as I do and they are already telling their family and friends all about our vacation and Chatty's Dream. I gave all of them the booking information. I will definitely tell everyone I know and recommend they stay at Chatty's Dream. I look forward to staying at your wonderful villa again in the future.

You can really tell the property is loved and not just for rentals. Had a wonderful busy stay at chattysdream. Pictures don't do the property justice. It is lovely and spacious with 4 very good size bedrooms. Pool is perfect after all the long days in the parks and kids alo loved the pool and air hockey tables. Also nice being gated as gives a real sense of security and in a good location with disney only 20 minutes max and universal about 40. Definitely can't recommend high enough and we would most certainly stay again.  Reviewer location ,United Kingdom, Date of arrival , August 1, 2015

We recently completed our stay at this beautiful location, and it couldn't have been more perfect! Initial contact with the owner was wonderful, all business detailed in a fun and comfortable manner. We were never left with questions, everything was handled professionally and quickly. The house itself is beautiful, four bedrooms all beautifully appointed. It was meticulously clean, and almost all amenities were provided. Do a shopping trip before you arrive to pack toilet paper, paper towel and soap as there is limited amounts. Besides the food you will eat that is all you will need! And you will not want to leave this beautiful place so buy lots of food and drink, it is an oasis from the hectic Disney life. The pool and spa were also very clean and lovely, and we could not have asked for a better place to stay. Traffic to Disney World can be a little busy, count on 25 - 30 minutes during rush hours. Thanks so much Tom for sharing this with us! Looking forward to our next trip!!!  (Thanks folkes -glad you had a great time and thanks for taking such great care of our villa)

Dear Tom and Kathy,

As we prepare for our departure tomorrow, we want to thank you for our comfortable stay at Chattysdream. This is our fourth year here and every time we are very comfortable in your home which moves us to return. The comforts of home and more. From the comfy beds to the spa....The new air hockey table is awesome. We had many fun game nights. Thanks again for all the special touches. We also would like to thank the management company (shout out to Debbie) for their quick response in our behalf! That being said we were wondering (as we see April filling up fast) if we can reserve April 22, 2016 to May 2, 2016. If we were able to do that and nothing is reserved (if the calendar is updated) when would you need a deposit by etc?

Thanks again!!! We had an awesome time and much needed relaxation .... Michelle and Stephan and family!

Owner note: Glad you enjoyed your stay and yes we will lock down your 2016 dates-welcome back.

Spent time at the home to attend College girls softball training camp. Wonderful location close to the softball complex and close to all the attractions the area has to offer. The home was the perfect size for two couples offering our own master suites. Owners were very easy to work with and made our stay feel very welcoming. Property equipped with everything you would need to make your stay comfortable. We have rented other properties in the Clermont area and by far find this one to be top of the list. Lots of shopping and restaurants nearby. I would highly recommend this home. Deanne H., Illinois

We had a great week at your house! The house is very nice and everyone enjoyed the pool!! Thanks hope you have a great time in Florida also.

NOVEMBER 1, 2014: RATED 5 STARS: This was a fantastic property. Close enough to the parks yet far enough away to be restful after a long day. Was so, so much better than staying in a hotel!! The owner, Thomas, was fantastic to deal with. Very responsive and accommodating before and during our stay. The property was exactly as described and very clean. The pool and hot tub were well looked after and private. This was our first time renting a condo but after this fantastic experience, we would definitely do it again. I highly recommend this property to anyone traveling to Orlando - you won't be disappointed! Thanks again Tom for all your help and information, it was greatly appreciated and if you will have us, we would love to stay again some time in the future. HOLLY G. Canada.


Date: Oct 5, 2014: We booked this home after searching many homes and reading the reviews. The house is great! Everything you need is there, and it is centrally located to all the parks, which is what we went on vacation for. The gated community is quiet and very relaxing. After being at the parks all day, it was nice to come back to our private home and pool. Recommended for: Age 55+,  Girls Getaway,  Families with Teenagers,  Families with Young Children,  Romantic Getaway: Rating 5 stars.

The Pholg family. Our family has vacationed in Orlando 5 times in the last 8 years. Chattysdream was the best property we have stayed at. The description and location in the listing was very accurate and the property was very clean and well appointed. Since placing a deposit late last year I have had the pleasure of e-mailing Tom several times and each time he made my question/request a top priority. He responded and was very pleasant to deal with. We enjoyed the pool, after long days at Universal and Busch Gardens Tampa, as well as the comfortable beds!! This trip to Orlando we did Universal and Busch Gardens but the location is central to a lot of the other activities in and around the Orlando area. I will definitely be recommending Chattysdream to friends for their trips to Orlando. Our family will also stay here on our next trip to Orlando.

Although there were no manger to greet (key is in lockbox at the door) , the trip was awsome and peaceful...Booking with Tom was easy "First timer Rental"....If i am ever down there again i would def. rent thru them again....rating 5 star


July 10, 2014: Great Home: Everything promised, plus some. The only regret was that we only stayed 3 days. The bedrooms were nicely appointed. The kitchen had everything we needed. The living room had every electronic device you could need. Three bathrooms were very convenient, along with ample towels. The pool and spa got ample use as we grilled outside. The location, while in a gated community was convenient to stores and Route 27. Looking forward to returning for a longer stay. Ethan L. Connecticut.

July 2, 2014: Our family really enjoyed the property; we even visited the community pool a few times.  We really had a wonderful time.  We will definitely think about the trip and if we can suggest anything we will email you.  Planning our next trip soon, however I will definitely recommend your home to anyone traveling to the Orlando area.  Also, I really enjoyed all the nice pictures you sent prior to our arrival.  I have attached a pic of our little girl at your home.

My beautiful bride and I spent our honeymoon at Chattysdream and greatly enjoyed out time! The house is in a beautiful gated community and has great security features on the house which made us feel very safe and able to enjoy our time. The pool is a wonderful place to relax and is private. The house is very nice with compfy furniture and a very nice kitchen. We enjoyed the game room as well. The location of Chattysdream is super! It is very close to Wal-Mart, nail salons, and of course Disney and other shopping. Also, the beach is only a short drive! I would highly recommend Chattysdream for a honeymoon or vacation!

It has been a true delight enjoying time together in this remarkable retreat! Thanks again for letting us enjoy your home! I have no doubt that you will hear from us again!!

Just wanted you to know that the TV in the blue room does not work. It wasn't a big deal since the kids just went in the yellow room, but just wanted you to be aware. Hoping all is well with you and yours!


Owners note ( we appreciate guest like Rosie letting us know they found an issue or something  happened during their stay). Turns out the 18 month old 19 inch Vizio Flat screen failed (uuggh) so managenment replaced it with a 24 inch flat screen Sanyo.   Guess I will need to swap out the girls room (yellow theme room)  tv when we are there in January so both rooms will have the same size TV.

 Hi Tom and Kathy, Sorry it has taken us so long to get in touch, since we got back it has been a blur of thank you cards, finding homes for all our gifts and trying to find furniture to furnish our new home! But we are slowly getting there and are looking forward to a happy new life together :)

 We wish to extend a huge thank you to you both for making our stay at Chattydream such a pleasure, the house is beautiful and was just perfect for us to relax and enjoy everything Florida has to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed using the pool and the BBQ, we had many delicious dinners (hence why we are now on diets!) and the bed was just perfect to crash into after a long day at the Disney Parks, so comfy! We have returned refreshed and with a great deal of memories that will last a lifetime and for that we thank you.


We also wish to say a big thank you for the unexpected gift of sparkling wine from yourselves, your neighbour Donna popped over one night to drop it off and it was such a lovely gesture. We enjoyed it with a romantic home cooked meal :) 


Thank you again for making our stay so wonderful, we hope that this is not the only time we will stay at Chattydream and will certainly be passing on recommendations to our friends and family.Best Wishes -Craig & Rachel S.

The game room was a lifesaver, when it rained and the kids couldn't swim.  I would, and already have, recommend this home to vacationers that are heading down your way, Florida.

Hi Tom!Thanks so much for processing the refund.  What a beautiful home you have and we did enjoy our “too short” stay there.  It rained the entire time, however, we still managed to swim and hot tub in the rain.  As a matter of fact, it was POURING on Thursday while we were in the hot tub!!!  We hope to come to Orlando again someday and if we do, we would love to stay there again if you are still renting at the time.  We were able to cook a marvelous dinner there and loved every aspect of it.  The landscaping was beautiful. We took many pictures of it all if you are interested in having any sent to you electronically. Thanks again and have a wonderful spring!

I hope this finds you and Kathy both safe and well after the hurricane went through your part of the country.  We have been meaning to write and thank you for the villa but getting back into the swing of things after such an amazing vacation has been a bit difficult.  The weather here is quite a bit different from Florida – it’s almost depressing!   We came home and almost instantly all of us have had colds, passed from one to the other.  But other, than that, life is going on, but we can all agree when I say,  we miss Florida.
Thank you so much!!  We had a wonderful vacation!  Your place was everything we had expected, hoped for and more.  We were so impressed with the cleanliness and how well appointed it was when we arrived.  It really was like being in a hotel without the hassle of a front desk and noisy neighbours.  We kept saying over and over again how pleased we were with our choice to stay in a villa versus a hotel or Disney resort.  We spent many fun-filled evenings in the pool and hot-tub.  The pool heat was a wonderful addition as the hurricane dropped the temperatures significantly.  We were glad to have it.  Cole slept very well in the crib – again, many thanks for it as well.  The laundry was a life-saver to me – as you know, having three boys the laundry never seems to end.  What a great convenience having it was.  I really could go on and on about all the things were appreciated about Chatty’s Dream.  My parents also wanted me to express their thanks and appreciation to you.  They enjoyed their accommodations and were very comfortable as were all of us.   They are now sold on renting a home the next time they travel to Florida too.

I loved having a cycling vacation near my favorite training roads of Clermont. Having a kitchen to cook healthy meals, and the hot tub to soothe aching muscles was great. I highly recommend your villa to more than the just the Disney crowd! Stay tuned, thinking about renting again next year –Julie-Vermont

 Hi Tom, I wanted to let you know we are returning home tomorrow (Sunday).  We all had an awesome time once again at Chattysdream. It feels like home away from home. Love that! We are all even talking about doing it again next year. Hopefully everything was found as we should have left it.

 Hope you are well...Thanks again! We hope to be in touch with you again for next year....Michelle

Hi Tom! Just got home a few hours ago after yet another fantastic stay at Chatty's Dream. We had a wonderful time, as ever - thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your holiday home once more - it really feels like a second home for us, we've returned so often! We're already talking about our next trip!
Everything was super, as we expect and love - we really had the most relaxing time - and we're all set for winter now! Hope we don't get too much snow though!
Hope you and Kathy are well and life is good - you'll be looking forward to your stay in the new year, I bet!
Take care! Regards, Janel, Rick, Nyla and the rest of the Scottish clan!

Sept 28th, 2012. Hi Tom!
Just thought I'd send a quick email to let you know we arrived safe and sound on Friday evening. Everything at Chatty's Dream is, as ever, great!!!! It's great to be 'home' again!!! Been to Epcot today and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and were back in time for some pool fun before tea! This is the life! Nyla is almost 6 now and she's loving the pool even more than before - its great to see her swimming rather than just playing about with water wings on now.
Hope you are both well and life is good. Regards: Janel ( and the rest of the gang from Bonnie Scotland!). Sent from my iPad

 Subject: RE: Thank you   Hi Tom,

 I apologize for the late response, I returned from Florida and I am just “catching up” with everything.

 We had a FABULOUS time at the house! We LOVED the set-up, the privacy and all of the comfortable means provided. The instructions, details, directions – everything was excellent and eliminated any questions. Thank you for taking the time to provide such. 

 As I am a clean freak and don’t feel it is appropriate for others to clean up after us, I left the house in great condition for the cleaning crew, and they had very little to do beyond the basics. We “contributed” some things to the house and for the beach, including a Styrofoam cooler. I’m hopeful the crew leaves everything so future guests can enjoy the additional items to assist in their vacation.

 We are hopeful to return again in the near future! We appreciated all of your kindness and flexibility.

 Enjoy the day, Tom and I hope you’re family is doing well these days!  My best always, Darla M.

Subject: Thank you..Hi Tom:
Just wanted to drop you an e-mail, to thank you for allowing us to rent your villa in the last of March and first of April. This was our second stay at your beautiful villa and once again you and your home were the perfect hosts. The villa was as usual perfect and we enjoyed ever minute of our two week stay. If any one is thinking of renting and needs a recommendation of your hospitality and willingness to accommodate any requests please feel free to use us as a reference. The villa is everything it is advertised to be and more.
It was a wonderful surprise to meet you in person as well, it was a treat to put a face to the friendly voice on the phone.
We would like to return to Orlando around the same time in 2014. I know that you are at the villa during this time, and that this is some time in the future, but if you are still renting and we can work out dates we would love to return.
Again, thank you for letting us be return guests to your beautiful villa, and we will be in touch.
Your thankful guests.   Donna and Jamie -Canada

 I don't know if you noticed, but we added to your stroller fleet.  We decided that we needed a single stroller so I got on craigslist when we got there and bought one and then just left it there for you. Now you literally have every stroller option for your renters. Thanks again for your helpfulness and professionalism.  We had such a nice relaxing time and can't wait to come back! Have a great day!   Jessica

The house was perfect for us.
We have never had such prompt and pleasant exchange as we did with Tom from the the first moment to the last. The house was perfect for us. Our son was sick the first several days and Tom was so nice to express his concern. Then we couldn't keep our son out of the pool! I think he had as much fun there as he did at Disney. The house was clean and tastefully decorated - more like a home than just a house. The pool and spa were clean. The location was great and easy to get to. We will definitely be back and recommend Chattysdream to all of our friends. Thank you for sharing your home

 Hi Tom!  Louis said hi and when u get a chance to give him a call. We had a fabulous time! It was just the two of us this time and we sure enjoyed it! We kind of made it a second honeymoon. I did send you a message last week to thank you so very much for letting us come a day early. Louis surprised me with that the day we drove there. You are so kind to open your home and your heart to us. The sun tunnels are awesome! Things seemed so much brighter and we didn't have to turn on the lights until early evening.  We went to Discovery Cove this time there and I got to swim with the dolphins!! Amazing!!!.  We arrived back home to a high of 43 degrees and 20 mph winds with gusts up to 50 mph....I already miss Florida! We are already talking about a return visit! Thanks again for your generosity! Blessings! Kelly, Indiana.

Review Submitted October 12, 2011      Date of Stay September 17, 2011
Hi Tom. Didn't know where to post this but thought you might need it for your future occupants. Here is our review of our 9/17/11 thru 9/24/11 stay: From the first time I contacted Tom to get information, to the last day of our stay, it was a wonderful, relaxing experience. Tom is very easy to get a hold of to arrange everything, including making payments until our arrival. The house was beautiful and exactly like the pictures! It is in a great location, with everything you need nearby. Walmart and the grocery store Publix are just down the street in case of essentials or groceries. Laundry soap is not provided, but Dishwasher soap was. The water pressure in the showers are great but very strong, so expect that when entering. It only took us about 15 minutes to get to the Disney gates (probably would have been less time if GPS wasn't trying to get through the wrong gates). There are many different restaurants to choose from nearby if you don't want to cook. But if you do want to stay in, all the essentials for cooking are provided. We took a short drive past the Mission Park entrance gates to Lake Louisa, where we saw a large turtle, many butterflies, and even a deer! That was pretty cool and didn't cost anything but a small entry fee at the entrance gates. We had no issues with the house, it was clean and inviting. The pool was nice and clean, although we were gone so much, we only got to use it once. We highly recommend anyone staying at Chatty's Dream house. It was a very pleasant experience. Thanks again!!!

Date: Thu, 08 Sep 2011 18:03:08 -0400 Hello Mr. Sawyer,
First of all, we want to thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful home!  It is perfect for us!  We are having a great time exploring Disney and the area!  We now know what everyone talks about!  This is a magical place!  I can go on and on, but have to get back to Magic Kingdom (had to take a break from the heat and humidity).  Anyway, we noticed that check out time is 10:00 am, and was wondering if we could stay longer?     Chad would like to use the tickets up tomorrow and "chill out" Saturday before heading home.   I do not know if this makes any sense...bottom line , can we stay longer?????  We do not want to assume anything.
Thank you so much! Cami



8/8/11 12:29 PM.  Just a quick note to let you know what a wonderful vacation we had.  We have decided after staying in rental homes twice now in Disney, that we will never use a hotel again!  It was great with 4 kids to have so much space and separate bedrooms.  Again, thanks for the use of your house and the ease of renting from you with all of the great information!  Tracy

Your home is immaculate and had everything that we needed for a great vacation. We were very comfortable and had a very relaxing time. The sun tunnels allow lots of light into the house, which is great because I love sunlight. Also we had a couple of severe thunderstorms while we were there and it was pretty neat to see the lightening coming in through the sun tunnels. The pool was a favourite for both of us and we spent a lot of time out there, in fact I passed up going to the theme parks to stay at home and enjoy the pool. The covered lanai was great because it allowed us to sit outside even during the couple of rainy days we had. The privacy fence by the bbq was great and my husband bbq'd every night. You have a very private lot and it seemed like we were the only people around because we couldn't see any other pools etc. We did meet your neighbour and he seems very nice, he came over to say hello along with his three dogs and a cat. I am an animal lover so I said hello to them through the fence. We saw the crane fly overhead but he didn't stop for a visit. You have such a beautiful spot that we hated to leave. We will definitely recommend your home to all of our friends. This was our most enjoyable trip to Florida so far. We enjoyed our stay very much and we are thinking about returning next year. We were thinking about March 22nd to April 5th, 2012. Do you have rates available yet for that time frame? Have a great day, Jeff & Gloria J -

Hi Tom,First, thank you so much for sharing your great vacation home. It was everything you advertise and more. We were 4 adults and 3 children, 7,5 and 17 months. Plenty of room for all of us. Having the ability to wake at different times in the morning without disturbing others was great. The kids could watch tv or take advantage of being in their own private room and get ready in their own private bathroom which they loved. The home was immaculate and considering the number of bugs outside (it was love bug season), completely bug free inside. Everything is so conveniently located close to the house. We went to the super Wal-Mart almost every day. Anyone renting from you should check the many stores close by before buying souveniers in the park. Of course we bought swords, sabers, etc. for the kids in the park but magnets, totes, pens, etc. for Aunt Susie and others were a lot cheaper outside the park. Now that the children are older we're hoping to this trip again soon. We will definately give you a call. Thanks again - we had a GREAT time.

5 Stars Dream Come True!, July 20, 2010

By Kelly Travis (Gary, Indiana)

The pictures of this house simply don't do it justice! The house was immaculately clean upon our arrival. The white tile floors sparkled, the dining room table was beautifully set. The decor throughout the house was elegant, yet cozy and inviting (I love the living room and the master bedrooms!). The kitchen was stocked with more than enough dishes, glasses and utensils for 6 people. The upgraded carpet in the bedrooms was plush and soft. Having TWO master baths along with the bath off the foyer was definitley an added plus...3 of the six of us could take showers at the same time with out losing water pressure or temperature. The 4 "kids" (3 age 21 and 1 19)loved the game room in the garage. OOOHHH the POOL!!!! And the SPA!!! I think we spent more time outside than in! A dip in the pool was a wonderful way to end a hectic day at Universal, and hubby and I really enjoyed the romance of a glass of wine while soaking in the spa! The property management is absolutley delightful, so easy to get a hold of, they go out of their way to make sure you are a totally happy guest! My husband had asked them if they could please turn the heat on to the hot tub (seriously, I didn't think it needed to be heated in JULY...but hubby likes the hot tub and they had it on in just a few hours!! The property owner is also just as nice and easy to talk to. Every detail shows how much Tom and his wife love their home. Our experience at Chatty's Dream was exactly that-a "dream" come true!

The kids used the pool every single day and it was the perfect remedy to the scorching midday heat. All of the rooms, including the restrooms, were spacious and comfortable. Having access to the grill was great and we used it during our stay. The location was excellent as well. It was within short distance of all of the Disney parks and the drive on 192 and 27 were very easy compared to the traffic on I-4. On a few days we left the parks early afternoon, went home and relaxed in the pool, and then returned back to the parks. The home's location made this possible. It was also located very close to any stores we needed access to. So overall, we were very impressed and thankful to find such a great house to spend our vacation in.Thank you for being great and attentive hosts.

We had a wonderful time. The house is lovely. This was the first time we ever rented a house and we were a little nervous but no reason to be. Tom and Cathy are gracious hosts. The house is just as it's pictured on the web site. There is a super Walmart, Winn-Dixie and Publix (our favorite) just down the road. Debbie and Kevin from the managment company were also very nice; only had to call twice and problem solved immediately.We swam every day.Our vacation was a relaxing time, spent most of our time at the house. Only disappointment of the entire trip was the beautiful cranes didn't come to visit; we saw them down the street but didn't come to our house. Don't hesitate to rent this house, you won't regret it!

We talked to another family while we were at Disney and they had stayed on Disney grounds and they were complaining about how they were stuck in a small hotel room at night. Boy were they jealous when they heard that we were paying almost the same amount as them, yet we had a huge house with a private pool!!! I can't say enough good things about your house!

5 Stars, Our best vacation so far, August 5, 2009

By Jeanne (Chicago, Il)

All the previous reviews say it all, your home was set up perfectly! We really enjoyed coming "home" after the days in the park. The kids even chose to stay home a day over going to another park! Your directions and communications were outstanding. Walmart was visited often- so convenient. The corner lot was nice and felt more private. Our 7 yr old loved trying to catch lizards by the lanai, our 5 yr old loved having "his own pool" (the spa), and my husband & I loved watching them from the patio setting (hubbie enjoyed using his laptop on the patio as well- wi-fi was great)! Our only regret was not staying longer! would definitely recommend

Greetings to you and Cathy,

I am sooo very sorry to be so late in launching this e-mail to you. The last few weeks have been an adventure in itself.

We were so very appreciative of your generous offer to stay Saturday and Sunday to allow Hank to recover enough to travel. That's just what he/we needed. You have a very lovely, inviting home. We felt right at home the minute we walked in. The grand kids just squealed and squealed with all the space. As a matter of fact, the 2 youngest didn't get out of their beds to find their Mom not one nite (which happens often at home). I don't know if it was the pool activity that wore them out to the point they just didn't wake up or they just felt so safe.

We arrived back home and sought out a way of seeing a surgeon at the local military hospital and was blessed to get one in the same week. Hank had his gall bladder removed and while recovering from that had a tooth extracted as well. He has recovered fantastically and we are so blessed.

Even though our vacation didn't go the way we had planned it, we did have a very good time while at your home. The kids played in the pool, fed the cranes in the yard, and watched Disney movies from your collection. I would recommend your wonderful home to any one looking for a quiet, 'home away from home' within driving distance to the Disney attractions.

We visited the Church you recommended and couldn't have felt more at home than if we had been at our own church. The kids loved the individual services offered for them as well.

I have attached some of the 400 pictures our 'Daughter-in-love" took with her digital camera. Please feel free to post any or all (LOL) of them as you would. We Love Chatty'sDream.

We will definitely recommend your house to anyone we know going to Orlando and when we go back for a vacation, you'll be the first person we call. We've stayed in a few houses over the past few years but yours is the best we've seen. The kids loved the pool ( the adults did too!!) and it was just nice to sit outside and relax after a full day at the parks.

It was a pleasure to meet you and your new tree was doing well when we left!!

5 Stars, Great birthday, April 27, 2009

By Teresa (Jacksonville, FL USA)

We stayed here for my birthday and it was GREAT. The home was nice, clean, and the pool was great too. Everything was there that we needed with no problem, it was far enough away from the main strip to enjoy everything but still close enough to everything that it didn't take long to get any where. We will be staying there again. I will tell everyone I know and giving out the web site to everyone as well. So much better then a hotel.

We had the best time at your villa. It was very spacious and clean. The owner Tom was a delight to deal with. We arrived extremely early due to driving from MA and Tom welcomed us with open arms. The pool and jacuzzi were great after long days at Disney. Also love the bbq grill for quick meals it saved us lots of money compared to dining out. Can't wait to come back and when I do, it will be here.

11/08/08 From Shawnea

Just wanted to let you know that we're back from FL and our stay at your beautiful home in Clermont. The house was great, very clean and well kept. We enjoyed the nights relaxing in a nice, warm pool jacuzzi after the long, exhausting days at the parks. The neighborhood was nice and quiet and never encountered any problems entering or exiting. We enjoyed the Cranes and saw them in other people's yards most days when we were headed out but on our last full day there, they were in the back yard and I really got them to make noise.

We had a good time other than waiting for our daughter (almost 18) to get ready in the mornings and the unbelievable amount of crowds that were at Disney. I couldn't believe there were that many people there...and they say we're in a recession (HA HA). Thank you so much for working with us on our date changes. If we ever decide that we're going to go back, we will definately look you up again; in the meantime I will let everyone know that your home is great and they most definately won't be disappointed staying there. Thank you, Shawnea A. ,Missouri

I am so sorry I am emailing you late. We have been here since about 9pm. I was absolutely impressed with your beautiful home. All of the testimonials I read on your web siter are absolutely true. I walked into this beautifully, tastefully decorated immaculate home and was amazed. It is absolutely perfect. My kids are in love. They want to move in forever. They jumped in the pool right away. I picked the gold room (as you predicted) and my mom-in-law picked the red room (also as you predicted). I was impressed with the size of the bathrooms.


Your home is exactly that, a home. Nothing represents a "hotel" type atmosphere as some other homes I have rented do. The linens, furniture, dishes (thanks for having plastic for the kids), decor and everything else is as if we were in an actual home. Which we are! Thank you for allowing us to stay here for this short weekend. We are absolutely impressed. It is so nice to sit here by the pool and type this email to you.


We are headed to Sea World in the morning and Halloween Horror Night (just my husband and me) tomorrow night. I feel the children will hold no grudge that they couldn't tag along. They have plenty to do here with the pool, the pool table and the air hockey table. Sincerely, EB Miami, FL.

Rating 5 stars- Excellent, October 14, 2008

By Melissa P. (Ontario, Canada)

Stayed at this property: October 2008

Additional Comments: Beautiful and clean home with all the amenities. The children loved the pool table and the swimming pool was perfect for a long day at the theme parks. The location is perfect as it was only about 15-20 minutes to the Disney Theme parks and we did not face much traffic at all. Restaurants, gift shops and Walmart are very close by which was very convenient. We loved the fact that we could drive such a short distance and be away from all the hustle and bustle of the busy parks. The owners were very diligent with the rental and also provided an abundance of additional information regarding the area. We hope to rent this property again in the future and would definately recommend this home to anyone wanting a peaceful and fun Disney vacation.

Everyone - from my 95 year old Grandmother to my 19 month old daughter, had a ball! It was just great to spend such a special holiday and time with our family in such a lovely home. Our (family) surprise visitors were just the cherry on the icing on the cake!!! We were blown away to find them waiting for us at the pool!!! Thanks SO much for all your help and trust in organising this - it is much appreciated. You have a good heart.

We will certainly look no further than Chatty's Dream for future holidays -here's hoping it'll be sooner rather than later!!! Thanks again for all your help and information - you're a star! Regards,

Excellent Vacation Home, January 5, 2008

By Carol Gawne (Flat Rock, MI. USA) We stayed at the villa Dec. 15, 2007 - Dec. 22, 2007. My whole family loved it. The house was more than we could have expected. Very spacious and clean. We used the pool every day. Definitely the place to stay on vacation.

We arrived home from Florida late last night and we must admit it was very difficult to leave Chatty's Dream. Your home was everything we hoped it would be. It was very clean, nicely decorated and so comfortable. When we arrived the table was set so nicely, we hated to use it. The pool and game room were a big hit with the kids. They loved coming home and swimming in the evening as it got dark. Our youngest child developed and ear infection while on our trip so he and I spent a bit of extra time at the house. I was so thankful to have the extra space.

Thank you so much for making Chatty's Dream available for many others to enjoy. Our entire experience from the time we contacted you through our weeks stay was very professional. We will definitely keep Chatty's Dream in mind for a future return to the Orlando area. Thank you again and we hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Thank you for the opportunity to stay at your lovely home!! Our boys really felt more relaxed there and absolutely LOVED the pool and spa at night. We were really taken back by how well your home was decorated and well-maintained. It was such a joy for us!! We were able to visit all the theme parks in which our boys LOVED all the roller coasters. I would have to say the best part of our vacation was the fact that our boys got to see the Discovery space shuttle come in for a landing at Kennedy Space Center on Wednesday. What an historic moment!! It was fascinating!! We hope we will have the opportunity to re-visit you home in the future and we will surely recommend your home to others. Take care.

Dear Sawyers,

What a lovely time we had in Orlando. It was perfect and as one of Gary's daughters said, "this home is what made the vacation" It was spacious, comfortable, conducive to visiting, perfect for the kiddos to enjoy the pool and the games in the games room. One grandson would stop as he went from the pool to air hockey to tell me that "your house is awesome!" you can take a dip when you wake up in the morning.

We discovered the west entrance to Disney off of the 429. We understand that it has not been open very long, but it was definitely the avenue we used to visit Disney.

Thanks for sharing your home. Gary and I agree that this was the most relaxing vacation we have had in a long time. We will certainly recommend you to others who may be planning a trip to Orlando. I can't imagine a better way to spend a vacation.

Subject: Re: reference August 22, 2007

Yes we did rent from them the last week in July. The house was immaculate, the neighbors were nice yet not intrusive. It was our opinion that the house looked better in person than online. Tom was very quick to answer all of our questions before and during the stay. We decided to heat the hot tub when we got there and they had it on the same day we asked. I would suggest that you have it heated. The house is truly about 15-20 minutes door to door to Disney, the shops are very close to the house, Universal wasn't very far either - but they are all far enough that you don't have the traffic going to and from every day. I would highly recommend that you rent the house. We are planning next year's trip already and we will definitely be using that house if it is available. Oh, and they were very fast in getting our deposit back as well! Hope you have fun!!! MA Family, New York

We returned late last night from a wonderful week at Chatty's Dream. The house was more beautiful than the pictures online. It worked out perfectly for us. Disney was a hop skip and jump away, as were the shops and the main roads. Everything was beautiful. The people in the area were very nice. We even started looking at potentially buying in the area. For now, we are

keeping Chatty's Dream as our next vacation spot. You were great to work with - you constantly returned my emails faster than I expected and always had a great personality. I am so happy we found Chatty's Dream and you and your wife. We look forward to visiting again soon!!! Thank you so much.

We were sad to see the house in our rear view mirror but also very glad to get home. Tom, if you need any references or anyone asks to email someone for a reference, please feel free to give them my email. We were very happy with everything! and I would have NO problem telling anyone that!

Thank you again and I hope that we can visit Chatty's Dream again soon! If you EVER think of selling it, please let me know!!!!

Hi Tom and Kathy, I am writing to let you that we had a wonderful time at your vacation home. We had previously stayed at a vacation home about 3 years back and were very disappointed with it. So when I came across your

villa we were a bit cynical. When we arrived Thursday night we were taken aback. The house is absolutely gorgeous, spotless beautifully decorated and it had everything! The only we had to do was buy food. And the fact that Tom called the night we arrived was the icing on the cake. We decided when we come back to Florida we will definitely stay there again. So thanks again for having such a wonderful home and giving us the pleasure to stay in it. Thanks Again, The Colberg Family, NY

Monday, April 24, 2006 3:12 PM TOM AND CATHY, we had a wonderful week. We met the Crane family (birds)and they ate crackers out of John's hand. Everyone was in awe. The crane came right up to us. Again thanks for allowing us to enjoy your home. We all loved the air hockey game, everyone

had fun with the girls tying to beat them. Your home is a great place, it's quiet and peaceful, which is a real plus when you leave the hub bub of Disney. The traffic is terrific, we can't think of anything that would make it better. MARY AND RICHARD,

We enjoyed our stay this past February in your Orlando home. The game room, pool, and spa got plenty of use during our week stay. After a long day at the parks it was so nice to be able to have room to relax in a house instead of a hotel room (we have 4 kids under 10 plus I brought my mom -we needed the 4 bedrooms!). Our 3 year old daughter came down with a

stomach flu for a day, I can't imagine how stressful the day would have been if we were stuck in a hotel with a sick child. Having a house allowed the other children to play in the pool and game room while the 3yr old rested in her own bedroom.

I looked at several houses on line before I choose yours...I felt more comfortable renting from someone who first of all lived in the U.S. and second of all regularly uses the house themselves. My intuition paid off, your helpfulness and communication far exceeded our expectations. Also thank you for sending the security deposit back so promptly.

From: Stover, PA Sent: Wednesday, May 24, 2006 6:57 AM I was thinking on the way into work this morning that I needed to e-mail you. Everything was absolutely perfect. The house was a delight, a real home away from home. Even the young children were comfortable there. We love the home's layout

with the two master suites. The baby thought she had her own personal pool in the garden tub! I didn't think we would even use the pool table & air hockey because we are usually so busy when we're there, but they nicely filled in for those "down times". We enjoyed the pool & spa every morning and again in the evenings. And of course there was Disney in between! Thank you so much for making our stay so wonderful & relaxing. We trust that everything was found in order.

Good day Tom, Just thought I'd drop you a quick line (not much time,trying to keep up with my daughter and her shopping). But I wanted you to know we think your home is beautiful and we are enjoying everything about it, especially the pool (so warm). It's even better than we imagined and it will be really hard to leave. Hope you're enjoying some nice weather also. Brenna
