What people are saying
We had a wonderful stay at Colin and Michelle’s! They even welcomed us with a bottle of wine! There was absolutely everything we needed and more (even spices!). We really enjoyed the pool and also the fact that there was a kids park so close. The house was very spacious and clean! Loved the beautiful new appliances. The patio furniture was so comfortable! We really had a perfect stay and look forward to booking again in the future! Thank you for everything Colin and Michelle!
I have just returned from a 2wk stay in this beautiful spacious villa. The villa is situated in a very peaceful quiet area with a stunning swimming pool with modern comfortable pool furniture. It is nicely decorated, with all new modern kitchen appliances and my favourite being the washing machine and tumble dryer 🤣🤣. Colin and Shelly could not have been more helpful and accommodating throughout the whole booking process from start to finish and even helped us save money on car hire and theme park tickets. I would highly recommend this villa and I hope to visit again in the near future. Thanks Colin & Shelly
We’ve recently returned from a fantastic two and a half weeks staying in this villa. We knew it was going to be nice from the photos, but they really don’t do it justice! It’s so beautiful and spacious and the pool area was amazing, much bigger than we expected and so quiet due to not being overlooked at the back. My favourite time of the day was my morning coffee sitting by the pool enjoying the peace and quiet before the madness of the day began. The villa was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The beds were huge and very comfy and with two teenage daughters having three bathrooms was a godsend! All the appliances were new and I fell in love with the washing machine and the ice machine. The location was great for us, not too far from the parks but far enough that you felt you escaped at the end of the day. Lots of shops and restaurants close by and easy access onto the I4. Colin and Michelle were fantastic with us from the very first enquiry about the villa. We booked a long time in advance but they kept in regular contact with us and helped us out with various queries. They even got us cash back on our park tickets which went a long way to paying for the daily parking. They contacted us a couple of times whilst we were away to check that everything was okay for us. All in all a perfect place to stay. Our only regret was that we didn’t get enough time to appreciate the villa as it’s such a busy holiday! Hope to visit again before too long and would definitely factor in some time for chilling at the villa. Thanks again Colin and Michelle for letting us stay.
Returned from the Villa on Friday. Having worked in the Travel Business for over 10 years I have to say that this was the best holiday I have had - Colin and Michelle are great owners who do all they can to help and they have thought of everything that can make your stay easy. The villa itself is beautiful with lots of space and the biggest complement I can give it is that it feels just like Home as soon as you arrive. Location wise it is great to explore Disney as well as Universal but also to get to Busch Gardens and the Beaches close to Tampa. Shops and Restaurants are within easy reach as well as the Outlet Malls and Florida Mall. You will not be able to beat eating Breakfast by the Pool or to have a relaxing swim when you return from the Parks. I would have no problem recommending this Villa to people and have discussed a return visit with Colin already. Finally, a massive thank you to Colin and Michelle for letting us experience your little bit of Florida heaven
We have just spent 2 amazing weeks at this lovely villa. Our third time in Calabay Parc which we really like and this is hands down the loveliest villa we have stayed in. Clean, lovely decor, furnishings and appliances a real home from home. The pool area is fantastic with the most beautiful view. Colin and Michelle have communicated with us ever since we booked well over a year ago which is so reassuring, and any little queries or worries, they answer straight away, can’t recommend them or their villa highly enough. Thanks guys
Just returned from our 2nd visit to this stunning villa in 6 months with our 3rd visit in place. Colin and Michelle are wonderful owners, keeping in touch to make sure everything was ok and quick to reply if we had any questions.
Cant recommend this villa highly enough from the moment you open the front door to the moment you reach the pool (which is to die for ) it has the WOW factor, clean, tidy with brand new kitchen appliances and very well maintained.
The location is fantastic 15mins to Disney and short drive to the most amazing Golf courses and restaurants, we were spoilt for choice. Publix and Walmart are close by so all in all a great central location.
Can’t wait for our next visit, roll on July 2019.
A Very Happy Fuller Family.
My family and I have just spent the last two weeks staying in this wonderful villa. We are a family of 5 adults and 2 children.
The villa is in a great location, super size swimming pool, very well equipped and clean.
Colin has gone above and beyond in helping me in organising our holiday. He has always been very responsive and informative. Nothing has been too much bother.
We would definitely recommend this villa to others.
The pool was crystal clear, nice comfortable outdoor furniture, beautiful
Lanai. We spent 48 days here and the house is very well taken care of. Clean! Colin and Michelle keep in touch and are right on any problem that might arise. Would I recommend this house. Absolutely
You will not be disappointed with this choice of Villa and location. On entering Calabay Parc you will not fail to notice how beautifully maintained each property looks, Calabay View even more so. I have high standards and know what I want when choosing a property for our holidays and this accommodation ticked all the boxes, even exceeded them at times. On entering you'll notice how bright, modern and spacious the villa is, as well as being meticulously clean. The swimming pool is amazing, as well as the SPA, and what a great size, one of the biggest we've had from the many villas we have stayed in. The bonus for us that it was not overlooked and we had the sun all day. The villa is ideally placed for all the main attractions Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World etc etc...Supermarkets and shops are all in easy reach and there is an abundance of great restaurants just a short drive away. Colin and Michelle where amazing from start to finish and I was so impressed with how welcoming they where and the high standards set at their Villa, that we have booked again for next year. I have no reservations in recommending anyone to stay here and make your Florida holiday that bit more special.
The villa is on H27, literally 5 minutes from the interstate which means it is so convenient for the parks - 15 mins to Disney or half hour to Universal - straight road all the way. It is also very close to a walmart supercentre and Posner Park shopping / retail park. I have been lucky enough to stay in Davenport a few times and can honestly say this is the best villa we have stayed in - why, well it is beautifully laid out with massive rooms, very spacious pool with a stunning view - so relaxing. The owners are so helpful, always happy to answer any questions and booking was so easy. I would absolutely have no hesitation in recommending this villa and hope to stay here many times more.
This villa is a fantastic place for relaxation on your next Orlando Vacation. The villa is comfortable, clean, and spacious. The pool area is wonderful - the pool itself is sparkling clean and warm and the furniture is new and perfect for days of fun by the pool overlooking the conservation area. We definitely recommend this villa! Owners are also fantastic to communicate with - emails are very promptly returned. Thank you for a wonderful place to spend our family vacation!
Villa Management & Owners: Excellent
Value for Money: Excellent
Overall impression: Excellent
We were lucky enough to stay in Colin and Michelle's Villa in August 2017 and we absolutely fell in love with it.
We selected this villa mainly for its location as we had only stayed in Kissimmee before and wanted to try a different area and this villa ticked all our boxes for bedroom space and price as well. From our first contact with Colin and Michelle the whole experience was an absolute pleasure as they were so friendly, helpful and a pleasure to deal with - all queries and questions were answered and nothing was too much trouble.
This villa is well kept and beautifully decorated throughout and within hours I felt so at home there. They have thought of everything you will need for a perfect stay. The Master bedroom is spacious with a huge king size bed which is superbly comfortable and the en-suite and wardrobe are just as spacious. The other three bedrooms were equally nicely decorated and have everything you need.
We used the family room a lot and this was perfect for chilling in the evening with a glass of wine while the children slept. It has large soft leather sofas and with free wifi, large TV (complete with cable channels) and other entertainment, such as an Xbox is also on hand. We also enjoyed a quick game of pool in the evening in the games room.
The kitchen is well equipped and there is plenty of space in the fridge and freezer, we didn't do any cooking but the kitchen looked well stocked with everything you would need if we had decided to cook.
The pool/jacuzzi is large with a table and seats in front of the safety fence and another set of lounge chairs directly by the pool. We enjoyed many hours in the pool with a great conservation area view. I miss having my morning coffee by that pool!
Overall we all adored Calabay View and it's location more than Kissimmee. The parks were easy to get to, it was close to many restaurants, supermarkets & shops. We would not hesitate in staying again or recommending it to anyone.

We stayed here as a family of 3 adults and one child in July and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday here. The Villa is large, clean and well decorated and has everything a family needs to make this home from home.
The Villa is in a great location on the US27 very close to Berry Town Centre where you can find a large Publix Supermarket, Applebee's and IHOP amongst others. If you're returning from the parks on the I4, then you can enter via Chamionsgate where you will find another great selection of shops and restaurants - Millers, Chilli's etc.
The assistance from Colin was fantastic not only during booking, but on the lead up to our holiday and even called us when we were there, offering help and advice on things to do and places to visit.
The pool area was fantastic with a good sized pool, Spa and a sheltered area (lani) which was really appreciated as an occasional escape from the direct sunshine during the day, and at night where it was a great place to relax with your favourite tipple.
Our only complaint is that the Villa has already been booked for the time we planned to make our return to Orlando in October 2018. Shows how popular and well appreciated this Villa is.
Well done Colin and Michelle!
From the Veal's
We stayed here for 16 nights in November as 2 couples.
Being located on Highway27 between the I4 and the 192 gives you alternative routes to get to the parks or shops. Your literally spoilt for choice for restaurants and supermarkets with all the options being only 5-10 mins drive at most in either direction. Calabay Parc as a residential area is beautiful. It is well established with mature tree lined roads and is well maintained with driveways and lawns leading up to the villas.
CVO is located on the outer edge of CP and backs onto a conservation area which gives a lovely natural outlook. We were fortunate to see some local wildlife during our stay which was an unexpected bonus.
The villa overall is very spacious, immaculately presented and very comfortable with all the amenities you need - like a home from home and we felt extremely at home there.
The 2 master suites are huge and both have the extra large American king sized beds and lots of storage space for all your clothing etc and both have doors leading to the pool deck area.
Kitchen again is very spacious and whilst we didn’t eat in as such it has every amenity should you wish to fully self cater.
Aside from sleeping, the pool area is where we spent the majority of our time it’s the biggest pool we have had while staying in a villa. We made good use of the spa too which was most welcome after a day on our feet at the parks.
I can honestly say without hesitation this is the loveliest villa we have stayed in and we have stayed in a few! It’s the little things that make all the difference such as the notes on the light switches telling you which one is what, USB ports on the plug sockets and the welcome bottle of wine we had on arrival from the owners Colin and Michelle who, from the start made us feel welcome and had no hesitation in helping us and promptly answering any queries.
Looking for a villa can be a minefield as there are so many to choose from but not anymore - we absolutely will be booking Calabay View again for our return visit.
Thank you again Colin and Michelle.
From Helen and Paul Rollins
It’s our last morning in our home in Florida and we are gutted. I call it our home because that’s exactly how Colin and Michelle make you feel. We are very grateful that they have shared their beautiful home with us for a second time and we wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else.
We’ve luckily been able to spend 4 weeks here this time around and it’s just as great as we remembered if not better.
From start to finish Colin and Michelle have been fantastic. Firstly rearranging our dates and then letting us extend our stay at late notice. They keep in touch regularly to make sure all is ok and help in every way they can. We’ve came to see them as friends and have kept in touch since our first visit Christmas 2016.
The villa itself is beautiful and spacious, having a second master with an ensuite is also a bonus! There’s plenty of storage space too.
The pool area is lovely, we spent a lot of mornings and most evenings sat out on the patio. The pool is larger than some villas and the added bonus of the spa is great too.
It has everything you could possibly need here for an enjoyable and comfortable stay. Literally a home from home! The added entertainment of the games room, Xbox and board games is great too, especially with a little one to keep busy. The WiFi and free landline calls is also a great added extra and came in handy for us when we had to extend our stay.
The location is great. There’s restaurants, shops and supermarkets nearby. The complex is also really lovely and peaceful.
Another bonus to this villa is that the back faces a forest so the scenery view is amazing and we was lucky again to see the local wildlife.
The only problem we have is that our 7 year old son loves it so much he said his not leaving as it’s his house now 🙈
So future guests may have a lodger lol.
Massive thank you once again to Colin and Michelle for sharing their beautiful home with us and all the help and support you’ve given.
Kellie, Ian and Kian.
Now home with the post florida blues, so our next booking in place already..........yay!............rebooked within 2 days of coming home.
This villa is a must you will not be disappointed, its spacious clean and has everything you need, from a games room to a bar-b-q and not forgetting the pool and spa ( our favourites) the view is just wonderful and if your lucky might get to see some of the local wildlife. Upon arriving we was greeted with a wonderful Christmas tree in the lounge ( santa had left some presents) the rooms were all amazing and so much space, Colin and Michelle have been in constant contact from day one of booking, leading up to our holiday and whilst we was there, nothing was to much trouble and made us feel totally relaxed and reassured.
Calabay Parc is a lovely residential estate on the US27 and the easily reached from the i4 exit for champions gate and ideally situated for theme parks, shops and restaurants, just down the road on the US27 you will Berry Town centre with a Publix supermarket, Applebee’s and I hop, if you fancy a round of golf is Highland reserve and championsgate are on the doorstep. This is one of the if not the best villas we have stayed in, Colin and Michelle take great pride in there home and you can see that as soon as you arrive. Thank you both so much for sharing your home with us and for your hospitality we can’t wait to come back to Calabay View
From the Fuller and Fisher families
We recently stayed here as a family of 4 adults at the beginning of September and we were not disappointed. The villa is beautiful! Very tastefully decorated, with all the amenities you could need, and very spacious. It was also spotlessly clean! The pool was lovely, including the spa/jacuzzi, we enjoyed having our breakfast out there every morning as it was very peaceful, with a nice view of the surrounding trees (My mum enjoyed watching all the different birds).
We also happened to be staying here during the time hurricane Irma hit, luckily we didn't didn't get hit badly at all, and the villa kept all it's power through out! We just stayed in and played some of the many board games provided and enjoyed the games room in the garage where there is a pool table and table tennis! Colin and Michelle provided us with great support throughout the storm and constantly checked that we were okay and safe.

We stayed at this amazing Villa in November 17 for 16 nights and what can I say...... WOW...... I’m not great at what highways we were close to and distances etc but what I can say is.....Perfect home, Perfect Pool, Perfect Views, Perfect location, Perfect hosts = Perfect holiday.
I literally cannot fault anything, we all had the most amazing time and I am looking forward to bringing other members of my family to stay here in the future!! If this villa is on your short list then just book it, you will not regret it!! Thank you Colin & Michelle for allowing us to share your beautiful home. Keep up the excellent work, we look forward to staying again.
Much love Yvonne & Craig xx
