The money you will save on restaurant food alone will cover the cost of your rental. Your family will enjoy four separate bedrooms, two bathrooms, a complete kitchen, wide-screen TV and 297 Hi-Def channels, a covered deck and enclosed pool, full laundry and your own games room with basketball, slate pool table, WII and foosball.
How close and convenient are we to Disney World? Disney World is the size of the city of San Francisco, but on most evenings if you listen at the right time, you can hear the fireworks going off at Epcot from our doorstep! You can drive from our driveway to the parking lot of the Magic Kingdom (at the far north end of Disney World) along comfortable, uncongested highways (and only 2 traffic lights) in less than 15 minutes!
Pleasant Oak Villa is close enough for convenience, but just off the beaten path enough to provide you with all the safety, rest, and relaxation you need! Enjoy the sounds of nature and your own family splashing in the clean warm water of your private pool - amidst swaying palms, surrounded by pines and towering oaks; and all bathed in the warm Florida sun!
At night, enjoy the peace and tranquility... stroll down our quiet street and along the path beside the 40-acre natural lake just two blocks away, as an amazing view of the stars turns silently overhead. Take a relaxing dip in the pool before jumping into the shower to rinse your cares away, before crawling into our massive king-size four-poster fantasy bed and snuggling in fine linens as the crickets lull you to sleep.
While right in the heart of all the action, this gem of a home is tucked away in a quiet, beautiful conservation community, allowing you to experience a little bit of the ‘real’ Florida. You won't find gates and security guards here - we don't need them! The area is quiet and safe! When you need to escape the hustle of the theme parks and wind down and cool off, this quality Florida home provides the perfect retreat!
This fully air-conditioned villa comfortably sleeps eight people in FOUR bedrooms, each with their own closet. (We don't use a pull-out sofa bed in order to increase our guest capacity). The master bedroom (King Double Pillow-Top Mattress bed) with its own bathroom and walk-in closet is located on one side of the house, while three double bedrooms (2 Twins, 1 Queen, 2 Twins) and a full bath are located on the other side of the home, providing additional privacy.
A quality, fully-equipped Kitchen with full dining area overlooks the lounge area (living room) and pool area. (When we say 'fully-equipped' we don't mean to typical vacation home standards [some have just a couple of pots and a few plates], we mean ready for you to prepare and enjoy full meals, including all of the dishware & cutlery you need, plus a full set of acrylics for use on the lanai!)
The lounge area opens out to the Lanai (covered deck) which overlooks our professionally-maintained, private pool completely covered by a screened enclosure to keep out insects and debris. The yard is landscaped to provide beauty and privacy from neighbours, and the large spaces in between homes in our area allows you to feel comfortable... not in a fishbowl, but not too alone either. A separate entrance gives access to the pool area from the master bath. Jump out of the pool and right into the shower to warm up and rinse off!
We've visited Florida as a family many times, and our son worked as a cast member at Epcot in Walt Disney World. We've set up our Florida home to make visiting central Florida fun, stress-free, and economical for families just like yours. When you stay at Pleasant Oak Villa, you get our personalized service as a family who knows the area, knows the parks, and knows what you need to have a fabulous Florida family vacation!

We are Robert & Donna. We are a friendly, outgoing couple from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in Western Canada. We have been married for 30 years.
Robert designs and builds new houses, and Donna is a very successful recreational travel trailer sales representative.
Robert is a creative whiz with a strong design and writing orientation, and Donna is a master chef with a huge library of cookbooks, and a very strong artistic and creative flair as well.
We LOVE travelling in Florida, and love our villa located just south of Walt Disney World. We have spent a great deal of time upgrading and tweaking it in order to make our guests feel pampered and comfortable. Without doubt, our villa has the nicest landscaping in our entire subdivision, and one of the most private yard and pool areas to be found in the entire Disney area.
We have three (now) adult children, the eldest who worked as a cast member at Epcot in Disney's International Program for a year. Robert is a bit of a theme park buff, and very knowledgeable about the Central Florida area. All of this allows him to provide excellent advice to our villa guests about their trips; what to do, where and when to go, how much time to allow, things suitable for children, etc.
We also understand how to 'do' Disney on a small budget, or a big one if that is your taste, and are happy to share our advice and experience with our many guests.

Additional Property Information
We first stayed in the area in 2003, and completely fell in love with the place! I timed the drive from the driveway to the parking lot of the Magic Kingdom, and it was under fifteen minutes, yet the villa was located in a very quiet and safe conservation sub-division, that was really hidden out of the way. The homes in the area were not built with no personality and right on top of each other like so many vacation rental developments are. As business owners we were intrigued by the aspects of running a vacation rental business, and began watching the real estate listings for the home we had stayed in, and when it came up for sale (six years later), we bought it! Three years after that, we were again in Florida, staying at our much loved first home, and we saw this home for sale. We very quickly arranged to purchase it, and the odyssey of what would become our new preferred place to stay in Florida began!
The conservation subdivision where our home is located has a good mix of owner residents and vacation homes, so the area is safe and kept in good repair. It is very beautiful, designed around a central 40 acre lake, and is very pleasant for a morning or evening stroll, when one can enjoy many birds, the odd small wildlife and a pleasant 'Hello' from neighbours.
After purchasing this property, we 'gutted' it and began rebuilding it into a vacation rental that we would be proud to own and share with our guests. We moved doors, built walls, jack-hammered out concrete subfloor and moved plumbing, all while transforming the property into one of the nicest in the neighbourhood. Even neighbors living in the same floor plan didn't recognize the house after we were done transforming it. Our renovations continued on the exterior as well, enlarging the pool deck and the screen enclosure, where we now have the widest pool deck in the entire subdivision!
The villa is quiet, comfortable and relaxing, yet it is within 15 minutes drive of everything Walt Disney World has to offer, and Universal Studios, Sea World, (20 minutes) and the new LegoLand (30 minutes) theme parks are all close by as well. Beyond that there are all of the shopping, dining and golf opportunities that one would expect in the No.1 tourist destination in the world! Daytona Beach, Tampa, Clearwater Beach, the Kennedy Space Center are all about an hour's drive away. We have used the villa as a launching point to explore so much of Florida's incredible natural and cultural amenities.
One of the very unique benefits our guests enjoy is the very professional level of management and care we bring to the operation of our villa.
Each of our guests receive their own personalized web page from which to manage their reservation, allowing them to confirm details, make payments, and download custom maps and other documents we have prepared for our guests, including a detailed home manual. In addition to this, our guests receive a pass code to order genuine theme park tickets online at the guaranteed best price (without hassle or timeshare presentations) which will then be delivered right to the villa free of charge!
We take great care of our guests!

Very efficient, friendly, professional service.
This villa is well maintained, recent modernisations, clean with everything you need. The owner is very friendly and professional and maintain's excellent contact throughout the booking experience and to support during the stay. The pool area is wonderful and clean, the pool heating was perfect, no issues and always clean and warm. The villa is two minutes from the I4 and 1 minute from local shops like publix. The villa although close to amenities feels very remote and quiet due to the non-overlooked rear outside space which makes for a lovely relaxing holiday. Highly recommend. Having used other villa owners in orlando I definitely recommend Robert. The level of communication and professionalism makes such a difference to ensure a stress free holiday.

Great place to stay!!
The booking process was easy and the Villa was exactly as advertised. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your spacious Villa. The proximity to attractions and local shops was ideal (and the maps with directions were greatly appreciated.) The pool was a great spot to spend the day when we weren't visiting any attractions and the living room was a comfy spot to spend a rainy afternoon. Robert was very helpful answering our questions. He was a courteous and gracious owner. We can't wait to return.

Very nice property and excellent process
We had a great stay at this rental. We stayed here with a family of 4 and it was quite spacious and relaxing. The area is secluded and quiet but close enough to Disney that we didn't feel like it was a drive.
Process for booking and checking in was very simple, organized and owners kept you information of needed information.
The kids enjoyed the heated pool as did we after a long day at Disney. We wouldn't hesitate to book again if we are down in the Disney area again.

Amazing home made our vacation more amazing!!
This was the first time my family and I rented a personal home for vacation. It was a great experience! The home was beautiful and well maintained. There was plenty of space for the 5 of us. The pool was the highlight for our kids. It was nice to see all the pool toys that were available for our use as well. I loved being able to have the space to spread out a bit compared to being in a cramped hotel room. The home is located close to the theme parks and very easy to get back and forth. Publix was super close which was great. I loved having the washer and dryer to wash our clothes before we left. It makes getting home so much easier lol. Rob called while we were there and he was so friendly and easy to talk to. I felt very safe in the neighborhood as well. All the neighbors waved to say hi when they saw us driving by. All the instructions were easy to follow and we had no issues. We would definitely love to stay here again someday! And I would recommend this rental home to anyone looking to stay away from hotels and crowded pools.

Clean, welcoming and home from home
When we arrived there was a fresh and welcoming feel to the property. We stayed to access all the adventures that Florida offers and it was great to return to the villa each day as it is peaceful and relaxing in a lovely safe neighbourhood. The villa suited our family needs well with the lovely pool and exciting wildlife at times. The living area was relaxing and everyone felt at home which made for a wonderful stay. Thank you Robert for the use of your wonderful villa.

Lovely Villa - Great base for our Holiday
The villa is exactly as described, the kitchen is well equipped and the living area is a great place to relax after a long day at the theme parks. Robert was great to deal with and provided lots of helpful info about the villa/theme parks & surrounding area(s). There was a problem with the pool (completely out of Robert' control) however once reported Robert dealt with it immediately and this was resolved during our stay. The pool was obviously a great feature for fun and relaxation, and we particularly enjoyed the 2 player basket ball game in the garage our games soon became very competitive !
Thank you Robert for a fabulous stay at your lovely villa x
