Dear jim ,

 I felt compelled to write and say thank you for our wonderful week at your villa. It met more than our expectations . You have thought of everything from plasters in the drawer to excellent facilities .  We have had a great time and will be passing on like jackie and Andrew Sheard did to us , the details of your villa .  I also have two good friends who have set up their own travel agencies . If you want I'd be more than glad to pass on your details.  We have been putting up photos on Facebook and have had so many Enquiries asking where we were staying on the back of out photos and comments.  We leave later today and again I wanted to thank you for making our holiday that little bit more fantastic .we are travelling down for a week in the keys . If only we could take your villa with us .  Thank you again . Kind regards Helen McIlveen Wilson  Ps . If you are ever in the north of England don't hesitate to get in touch as it would be lovely to meet you . X   

 Here are just a few of the many comments we have received over the years from guests who have stayed at Jaysvilla.

 Dear Jim, Firstly i hope everything was ok on our leaving the villa, I’m sure it was as i did all the washing of bedding and towels before we left. We would also like to thank you and your wife for allowing us to stay in such a wonderful villa. The pool and spa were outstanding and we used most days during our stay. We have stayed in florida 3 times now and this has been by far the most comfortable and best villa we have stayed in. We will be recommending your villa to our friends. please could you advise how and when we will receive our deposit back. thank you again your villa made our stay even more memorable and enjoyable. kind regards yvonne and Mark Paxton

Title: Perfect villa for relaxing after theme parks.

Rating: 5

Review: This is the 2nd time we have stayed at Jays Villa, the first time was 12yrs ago! It left an imprint on our memories then and we were not disappointed on our return. The booking process was so easy, Jim answered all our questions and was so helpful. He provided us with a comprehensive information pack just before we left and we had a phone call from the management company during our stay to check that everything was ok.
The Villa is stunning, I love the purple and the glittery curtains were delightful! The kitchen is well equipped and there are plenty of plates and glasses for both indoor and outdoor use.
The pool and spa give this Villa the 'wow' factor, stepping into the hot tub with a (plastic) glass of wine after walking round Disney all day was the perfect end to the day. The pool area is magical at night.
My elderly mother-in-law had no problem getting in and out of the pool and hot tub, something that she has had difficulty with at other villa's. This was another reason for our return as we knew she would be able to take full advantage of the facilities independently.
We were out everyday, but there are plenty of books and films to fill a 'rest day' if you choose to stay in the Villa for a day.
We will definitely be returning to Jays Villa, I hope it's a lot sooner than 12 yrs this time!!

This was our family’s first time in Florida and we had high expectation to our stay at Jaysvilla.
This beautiful villa more than exceeded our expectations. It is well maintained, very clean, nicely furnished and has a very homely feel to it. We all loved the pool area! It is nice, spacious and very beautiful after dark with all the lighting. This villa has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. It is located on a quiet gated estate and you feel very safe. The villa is close to a Publix Supermarket, many restaurants and a short drive to Universal Studios (30min), Disney World and 2 large Outlet shopping Centers with lots of shops.
We can highly recommend this rental property. Thank you very much Jim for always sending us a quick reply and for an excellent customer service.

The word luxury aptly describes this villa. We have stayed here on numerous occasions and just keep going back. We now book well in advance to ensure we get the dates we want. We stayed here for a month March/April and enjoyed every minute. You can walk to the local Publix or drive to a nearby Walmart to do your weekly shop. There is a great choice of restaurants nearby, our current favorite is The Texas Steakhouse. The villa is situated within a gated community which has a mixture of residents and holiday lets and is within easy driving distance of Disney and the other attractions.
When we arrived the house was yet again spotless. The owner just keeps updating. This time there was a new large flat screen TV in the sitting room and new table, chairs and beds at the pool. The pool is worth a mention. It is well maintained with efficient heating. The lighting there is something to behold. The air con is efficient and I particularly like the ceiling fans. The large king size bed in the master bedroom is particularly comfortable. During my visit I did have a problem with the tumble dryer. An email to the owner was responded to immediately and the problem was rectified.
I would certainly recommend the property and would return without any hesitation.

We have stayed here four times now and keep saying this is going to be our last time but have learnt to say 'never say never'...
We like it here because with it being a villa it's like a home from home, only a couple of miles away from a public supermarket or just another couple of miles away down the road is a large Wal-Mart. We love going to get salad and bread and chilling out under the lanai then swimming, then going out to a theme park as we love being there in the dark, such a great atmosphere! It was the pics of the pool that decided us to stay at this villa above others we looked at and we have never been disappointed.
The villa is on a gated estate so you're living with the locals which we like, and it's great when you get crane birds walking down the road and watching the eagles and vultures flying about and landing on the neighbours roof!
It's about 20 mins by car to the Disney parks, longer to downtown Disney, and about 30 mins (ish) to Universal and Sea World. It's about 1 hour 20 mins to Busch Gardens with more traffic around there so could take a bit longer depending on time of day. It's about 45 mins (ish) to Orlando International airport, we've never done Sanford so can't give a time for that one. These times are for November as we don't go at any other time to Florida, the crowds in the parks are virtually non-existent (we have been on rides over and over without queuing at all!) and the temperature is still warm/hot - too hot some times, we don't like heat, but it still gets up to 28-29 degrees C. The 13th November is veterans day, regardless of the day of the week, and the theme parks are rammed so we tend to avoid going on that day. Thanksgiving is the fourth Thursday of November with that week getting gradually busier, we did quite enjoy it though as the atmosphere was lovely but busy with the week after being really quiet again.
I (the mother) use a wheelchair and the parks are unbelievably easy to use with the staff going out of their way to help, especially in Disney, and you can take and use your UK blue badge for handicap parking in the theme park car parks but it's not legal for ordinary street parking or shopping malls (from what we've found, but have not risked trying this anyway).
I have MS and love staying in the villa because in the evening we can just relax and chill out, watch tv, have a beer and a chat, use the hot tub, you get the idea, this is not feasible in a hotel and the villa is perfect for this. 😃

We have visited Orlando every year for the past 14 years and found this by far the best villa we have rented. An excellent vacation property, in an ideal location. All the facilities were as described on the web site. My grandchildren absolutely loved the swimming pool, especially at night with its awesome lighting features. Highly recommended. We will most definitely look to rent this villa for our next trip.

We've just stayed here at the villa for 10 days. The photographs really do not do this villa justice! It's beautiful, very clean and very spacious. You will not be disappointed. There were six of us who stayed here. Nothing was too much trouble for Jim, easily contactable via email excellent customer service. Quick replies also whilst at the villa. Felt very safe there. Would definitely recommend this property and wouldn't hesitate staying there again - shame we had to leave! Thanks again for letting us share your beautiful home :) hope to stay again soon!

What a lovely villa so much nicer than any other that we have stayed in. This was our second visit and we have booked again for next year. The villa is furnished to a high standard and is so clean and bright. The sofas are so comfy that you can fall asleep on them whilst watching TV. The pool area is beautiful especially after dark with the fibre optic lighting. The pool itself is lovely and warm and the spa is an added attraction. This was our second stay and we booked again for next year even before we arrived back in the UK. We really didn't want to come back home. The owners are great too always happy to help and go the extra mile. I would definitely recommend this property.
Wendy and Keith.

Beautiful villa with fantastic pool area very relaxing. The villa was very clean and well maintained and comfortable, the management company contacted us during our stay to ensure a good stay, but we had no problems at all, except that two weeks flew too quickly. Close to restaurants and Disney attractions and there are some great golf courses nearby, Highlands Reserve, Legends and Ridgewood Lakes to name a few. The villa had everything you require to relax and enjoy yourselves, a home from home. Would definitely recommend to friends and family and hope to be using it again in the near future.

We booked this beautiful villa for my wifes 50th birthday and we were not disappointed. From the minute we arrived we felt totally at home the villa is in a lovely neighbourhood so quiet. And the villa itself has everything you could possibly want for that perfect holiday. The pool area is stunning so much so we hardly used our disney tickets prefering to lounge around the pool. With its lovely lights and waterfall it was just lovely. Inside had everything you could ask for. 3 large bright bedrooms with the master having a massive ensuite seperate toilet and shower big enough for 3 lol. We have travelled all over the world from LA New York and all over europe. And by far this is one holiday we loved the most. To me my wifes 50th birthday was so important and scoured the internet for the right holiday. Villa and destination. We were not disappointed. Cant wait to go back thank you both for letting us stay in your lovely villa.

We have stayed at Jays villa 3 times and have booked up to go back again in 2016 already. Fantastic villa in a secure gated community. Perfect location for visiting attractions and shops but also a nice quiet area when having a day at home by the pool. The home and pool area are
immaculate. Little touches like spare bedding and a travel cot made it like home from home when we went last year with our 8 month old son. I personally like that there are lights that come on at the villa when it gets dark, so when arriving home at night the villa is lit rather than having to go in a dark house. The pool area is beautiful at night with all the little lights on, so relaxing! On one of our stays the telephone and tv had stopped working due to a storm, but this was promptly resolved on contacting the managent company, even though it was a bank holiday weekend. Great communication throughout the booking process from the owners. Looking forward to our next stay in 2016.

We've stayed in this villa many times over the past ten years and it never disappoints. The location is great - close to local attractions, with the plus of being in a gated community for extra piece of mind. The villa is clean and well maintained, and the kitchen is stocked with all the necessities you need for a vacation stay.
Perhaps the best feature of the villa is the pool & spa area. Unlike many villas, when you pay for a heated pool you get a nice warm pool. We've had the unpleasant experience of paying for pool heating at other locations only to find the pool temperature to be inadequate. In February/March a warm pool is a must.
We have (and continue to) recommend this villa to family and friends who have also found it to be an excellent vacation home.

This is a lovely and happy villa. We stayed for one week in September what a pleasure. The inside has everything you need for a stress free get away. The rooms were all clean and nicely appointed. For us the huge attraction is the amazing pool area very funky at night!! We are really fussy we insist the pool is heated for our arrival and remains constantly warm throughout our stay - our wishes were met I know it's a small thing but it's important to us! The little personal touches show how much the owners enjoy their vacation home and we were delighted to get the chance to enjoy it. We are in the process of trying to sort out return dates for later this year!!! — Georginna Gray, 23 Jun 2015

We have had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful villa twice over the past few years. The location is fantastic and the home is situated in a gated community. The home is clean and very well maintained.
The highlight of this villa is the backyard private oasis. The pool is stunning and features waterfalls and a lighting system that looks gorgeous in the evenings. The spa is an added bonus and something that we enjoyed every evening after long days at the Disney parks. It is evident that the owners have invested in a backyard retreat.
The owner was an absolute pleasure to deal with from beginning to end. I would highly recommend this home to others who are looking for a wonderful stay at a beautiful Florida villa!

We had a great time at Jays Villa. The villa is set in a peaceful gated estate which is well maintained. We found the villa itself very homely and comfortable. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived. There is plenty of space so that you are not falling over each other and we found it well equipped. In fact one of our party didn't leave from the time we arrived until we left. The pool is something special, we enjoyed the light show of an evening and it was well heated. The hot tub was a plus also. The only negative we found was the floral arrangement in the front room was not really to our taste. That said, we were extremely pleased this was the only niggle we had. We have since enquired about returning.

Jaysvilla June14.
Jim and Janette we would like to thank you for the use of your wonderful villa.
We arrived in Florida worried about driving and routes but your excellent directions brought us effortlessly to the door. We appreciated the gated entrance which provided extra security to the complex. On opening the door we were immediately hit by the Wow factor. Beautiful lounge area with comfortable quality seating, fresh clean functional kitchen and dining area the luxury of the master bedroom with its spacious sparkling ensuite.Storage throughout was great and care and attention to detail was obvious in all areas including appliance instructions. Your phone call at the beginning of our stay to check all was well was most welcome.
Outside the garden was neat and tidy and well maintained and the pool area was clean and well protected with overhead mesh. Both areas were maintained during our stay. The lighting and water feature round the pool created a relaxing ambiance.
On occasion after heavy rain storm there was a smell that drifted from the water purification plant in the vicinity but we appreciate that was out with your control. The neighbours were friendly and welcoming.
The property was well positioned for shops, eating out Disney and other Florida attractions. Overall a fantastic holiday. Delighted to recommend your villa.
Thanks again J&C Purchase
