Working for an international airline, we’d both been frequent visitors
to the States and especially to Florida. Often we'd think about buying a
holiday home, perhaps in France or Spain, but then we'd think about our
favourite times, especially with our two daughters, and we always came up
During a great holiday in Orlando in 2002, we really started to seriously think this possibility through (it’s very easy to do this sitting by a pool whilst relaxing in the sunshine!). Returning to England, we did a lot of homework and went back to Florida later that same year to find a house we liked.
At first we looked at smaller 4 bedroom houses but fell in love with the design of the one we eventually purchased. It gave us a room for both girls as well as a second master bedroom room with bathroom for guests. We chose to add the spa – something we enjoy and find very relaxing after a busy day walking around a theme park – we hope our guests do too.
At first we thought the formal lounge was a luxury - however, it makes a wonderfully quiet retreat - especially if the children want to use the PlayStation … or the TV/DVD … or the hi-fi!
Well Glenbrook gave us lots of “extras” over many alternative housing
communities, or sub-divisions, we could have chosen. As well as being quiet
and safe it has the Clubhouse and activities based down there.
We enjoy using a gym and often only found time to attempt tennis during holidays, so having a court so close would be great. The Club House, together with its facilities, can be really useful if we, or guests, need to arrive early before the house is available, or check-out and don’t have flights until the evening. With air conditioned rooms, a pool with sun loungers, tables and chairs, restrooms, a children's tot lot play area and activities, it can be very useful to pass time in comfort – and free to all our guests.
Add to that, from our front door to the 192, it's under two miles, and we’re just 8 miles from Disney, close to fantastic golf courses and many wonderful shopping outlets. Within walking distance is Walgreens and CVS and nearby is a Wal-Mart SuperCenter, Publix and many restaurants. Close by is the I4 for Universal and Sea World.
We really enjoy our home and all that Orlando has to offer
and hope that you will visit. Situated
close to the attractions and shops, but far enough away from the hustle and
bustle, our house
peaceful feeling that you need
after a busy day
soaking up all that Orlando has to offer.
….and our daughters - as they've grown up they just want to visit their ‘second’ bedrooms again and again, swim in the pool, do the parks and take part in some retail therapy!!!!.
We hope you'll enjoy our home as much as we do.
