1. Are you really just over 10 minute’s drive to Disney?

Yes. We chose this home because of its fantastic location close to all major attractions while situated in a quiet residential community. <Top>


2. We’ve heard about the Zika virus - what’s the latest?

Travellers select an Orlando vacation destination, at least in part, because they want a stress free experience. We are still learning how to prevent and the full effects on those infected by the Zika virus.

The good news for Walt Disney World and other Orlando attractions is that so far, there are no known cases of Zika being transmitted by mosquito in the area. The closest case is down near Tampa. However, taking sensible precautions now makes sense.

For instance, the Red Cross is now testing all blood donations for the Zika virus. Walt Disney World is filling in some of the stagnant water at the former River Country water park, so the mosquitoes don’t have a breeding ground. And they have other programs already in place.

One of the new procedures will be providing guests and cast members with free insect repellent throughout the resort. They will stock aerosol cans and will make them available at its theme parks, Disney Springs, and the ESPN WWOS complex. Various signage will also be added to let guests know repellent is available.

“In an abundance of caution, we are accelerating preventative efforts throughout our property, including providing complimentary insect repellent to our Guests along with helpful guidelines from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention,” A Disney spokesperson said in an email. ”We have an extensive mosquito-prevention and monitoring program in place, and we continue to work closely with local, state and federal experts on this topic. We know its hot out in Central Florida, but in addition to wearing repellent, wearing long sleeves and trousers is another good way to prevent insect bites. Definitely consider it if you’re planning to get pregnant or already are pregnant and want to visit Orlando”. <Top>


3. We want to book your villa what happens next?

We strongly suggest that you complete our enquiry form to make sure your holiday dates are available, we will then hold your dates for 3 days giving you time to request and return our booking form and terms and conditions, once you have returned the completed booking form with your deposit we then confirm your booking. <Top>


4. How much deposit is required?

We take a non-refundable deposit of £150/$235 per week. <Top>


5. When do we pay the remainder of the balance?

We ask that you send the final balance 8 weeks prior to your travel dates, we then send you all of our address details, directions, and the door entry code to allow access to the villa. You drive directly to the villa – you do not need to collect keys from an office miles away! <Top>


6. Is there a security deposit?

Yes, with your final payment you should enclose a separate payment of £250/$400. This will be returned to you once our management company has inspected the villa after your departure. We aim to return this deposit within 28 days of your departure. This deposit helps to ensure that the villa is kept in excellent condition for following guests. <Top>


7. We have a small child, what facilities are in the villa?

The villa is equipped with a travel cot with bassinet allowing a young baby to sleep in the upper or lower part of the cot, a high-chair, two pushchairs/strollers (one with a reclining backrest) and three car booster seats. We ask that you provide your own linen and blankets for use in the travel cot. <Top>


8. Can you organise a food package?

Just let us know what you require and it will be ready and waiting when you arrive (prices on application). In fact we can organise anything from milk and bread to champagne and fresh flowers! <Top>


9. Can the pool be heated?

Yes, at any time of the year, however we do recommend pool heating between October and March. We have installed an ecologically-friendy timer switch for pool heating to so that energy is not wasted when the pool is not in use. If you request pool heating this will be made available before your arrival ensuring that you can use it straight away. <Top>


10. How much does pool heating cost?

Please see our rates page for our current rates. <Top>


11. Do we need to bring our own Towels?

No, the villa is fully equipped with face, hand and bath towels. Towels for use in the pool, water parks and beach are also provided. <Top>


12. Do I need to take my hairdryer?

No, we have hairdryers in each of the bathrooms, there is no need to take your own. If you do, please remember that the USA operates on 110 volt and you will need an adapter. <Top>


13. What facilities are on Indian Point?

There is a Tennis Court, Children’s Playgrounds, a Swimming Pool and a large lake. <Top>


14. Do I need a Visa to visit Florida?

International travellers who are seeking to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) are now subject to enhanced security requirements and will be required to pay an administrative fee. All eligible travellers who wish to travel to the U.S. under the Visa Waiver Program must apply for authorization and then pay the fee. Full details can be found here. One of the requirements is the address of your first night in the USA, the villa address will be provided in the final documentation. <Top>
