In January 2011, we began looking for a home for our
December vacation with our family of 7 adults, 5 children,
and 1 infant. We searched in detail for the next 6 months
through over 350 listings. In July, we
narrowed it down to three favorites and began asking
questions (very many questions) of the owners/property
managers. Kathy was very prompt and courteous and assured us
that the property was really the same one pictured in the
listing. Yes, we were still skeptical when it came time to
pay the deposit, but we went ahead and took the chance. When
we arrived in Florida, we had some problems at the airport
and were delayed long enough that our son and his family got
to the home first. Imagine our delight when we arrived at
the house and our granddaughter came running out screaming,
"Wow! This is the nicest house ever!" The pictures were very
accurate, okay, fairly accurate...I think the house may look
better in reality than the pictures show. We were so tired
after the flight and it was so nice to walk into an
exceptionally clean and comfortable house with wonderfully
soft beds and plenty of room for all. The pool was amazingly
clean and stayed that way all week long even though we swam
often. We did pay for pool heat and yes, the water temp was
very comfortable even when the outside temperature did drop
into the 40's one of the nights we were there. Although we
didn't use the grill, it was clean and had a full container
of propane and grilling tools available. The kitchen had
plenty of utensils, dishes, and pots and pans. One of the
wheels was off the stroller at the house, but I contacted
Kathy and a new stroller arrived within 24 hours. Plenty of
towels were available and the washer and dryer were so
convenient. There were a few puzzles, some games, movies,
books, and some stuffed animals that our grandchildren
especially enjoyed...and on the second day of our stay,
someone brought over a new Wii with the new Super Mario
game. If we ever go to Florida again, we would love to stay

Our family spent a fantastic week in Orlando. Our
choice of the "perfect place to stay" was a large
part of making the week a great success.
Vacation Rental 377708 was excellent. The house was
spacious, clean, well stocked, comfortable and
exceeded our expectations.
The game room, pool, (a favorite of the children)
and large number of bedrooms and baths contributed
to the total satisfaction for all. The property was
well maintained, and all of the necessary cooking
utensils, towels, etc. were available.
The location was excellent. We were 10 minutes from
DisneyWorld and 30 minutes from Universal. There
were grocery stores nearby. We did carry in food
from a couple of restaurants. Shopping and all needs
were readily available.
I would gladly stay in this property again. All of
our grandchildren ask if we could return next year.
If you decide to rent this property you will be
guaranteed a wonderful stay. Enjoy !!!!

We had a group of 6; 2 couples & 2 singles
and had plenty of space for everyone. We
used the pool, hot tub, pool table, air
hockey table and wi-fi. All the features of
the home worked properly which is nice when
you're away from home.
We had a couple of minor issues that were
dealt with in an incredibly prompt manor.
(Literally within minutes)
The community makes you feel safe and
welcome. We had a rental car (pretty much a
necessity) so we didn't use the available
for-pay shuttle services. Universal is a
pretty good drive (20 mins or so) but Disney
is a very short drive down Hwy 192. There
are several good restaurants and grocery
stores within a very short drive.
I would recommend this property.

My family stayed at this home over
spring break. Everyone gave it a
thumbs up and said they would stay
here again. The screened pool, hot
tub and outdoor dining area were
perfect for our group of 7 and at
times 11. The kids enjoyed having
the five upstairs bedrooms to
themselves, while my husband and I
had the master suite on the main
floor. With the two living areas and
two eating areas, there was always
plenty of room for all. Kids also
enjoyed the pool table in the garage
and the association tennis court,
basketball court, pool and snack
bar. The location was fantastic,
close to Disney, Universal, malls,
restaurants, etc. If you love to
enjoy the outdoors, this location is
good place to run, walk and bike.
Thank you again for helping me out at the last minute with the
Rose garden house rental, we all had a great time with family
gathering and pool fun etc. I totally would give your name
to my friends if and when they need help. THANK YOU!!!!! and
have a great day. K. Yates

I just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time and
the property was perfect for the
size of our party and offered a great base to enable us to
explore Disney and the rest of the area.
We are finally home after a wonderful holiday.
I would like to thank you again for your help with the holiday
house. We had a wonderful family get together and all went very
I hope you managed to have a bit of a holiday as well.
wishing you a very happy new year

I wanted to thank you for your assistance in finding

It was perfect for the occasion!
Thanks for allowing to stay your Vacation Home (Delfino at Windsor Hill), during my
business convention (June 15th-18th).
Your home is impeccable and the service was also. As I am a travel agent, I will add your
home to my vacation home referral list.

Bernie and Jeanie,
Thank you both for helping make our vacation to Florida a most memorable and happy one
that we will never forget!
The Delfino home at Windsor Hills was everything we wished for it to be and more.
The Windsor Hills Resort was fantastic.
Driving to Disney was close and trouble free. We will recommend
your home and your website FHVR.net to all of
our friends and family for all the years to come.
We look forward to coming back for a relaxing and fun vacation
home and time in Florida! You are the best! God Bless.

Jeanie, Jill, Sandy, Graeme,
Dwayne and I would like to say how much we appreciate the time and effort you took in
helping us plan our vacation(3/17-19/2006).
Thank you so much for making our vacation so successful!!!
A great time was had by all.
We would be crazy to go back to hotel vacations.
Looking forward to planning together again.
Dwayne and Karol Doby
Oh my gosh... I am so sorry to not thank you so much earlier.
We had a great time and we are sure to look you guys up when we return to Disney (probably
3 years) again.
For now I am going to forward all your info to my friends who will be visiting Flordia
Thank you again for the great memories.
We appreciate all you did to help us through the process!
We are looking forward to our first 3-generation vacation
it was nice to check
off the villa rental and move on to the rest of the details.
You and your associates were a big help. Tessy
My friends and family stayed at Calabay Pac in Davenport. The house
was home away from home.
I would definetly recommend to anyone who is traveling to Orlando. Everything was so
we are already planning a trip for 2005. Just wanted to say......
Just want to say thank you for the beautiful house in Orlando. We stayed there
from 3/19-3/26,05 and had a wonderful time. The excitement was enjoying the house and the
pool. We had a wonderful time.

We stayed at your home last week for our family wedding. We had a wonderful week
and enjoyed all the emenities of your home. It was truly like being at home.
Not only did our family enjoy staying there, but we had some relatives over to enjoy the
pool the day after the wedding. We look forward to doing this trip again.
Thanks again, we had a great time.
Just wanted to say that this was the best vacation me and my wife ever
had staying in the home at Creekside. I was very skeptical at first, but we were able
to check in early which was great (doesn't happen like that all the time
i'm sure) and the rep. that came to take the rest of the payment was in and out,
ontime and very polite. The home was wonderfully kept and made me and my wife
feel like we were at home. The tv, surround sound and pool table alone was
enough for us. The home was great and that will be the only place i stay when i
come to central florida. I will refer this house to all of my friends, family
Thank you Scarpa family, your home was well appreciated.
Hi Sharon, (C/O Bernie Scarpa)
I just have to write to tell you what a wonderful time we had in Florida. The house
was incredible!!! We went to look at the model unit and were not nearly as impressed
with them, as with the house you own with the decorating you chose. It was as if I
had decorated it myself, I couldn't have been more pleased. The only thing we found
was that the master bedroom was about 10 degrees warmer than the rest of the house, even
leaving the door to the living room open. But that was a minor inconvenience
compared to sleeping in such a wonderful king size bed.
I am calling a good friend of mine to recommend your property, and told several other
people about it also. I would never stay in a hotel again, this is my 15th trip to
Florida and I have stayed in many on-site Disney properties, and nothing compares in the
I wish you much success and happiness with the house.
Dear Jean & Bernie from FHVR.NET.
We first want to compliment you on your informative web site. We
realize there is much effort in putting them together. Yours conveys the message very
The house more than met our every need, the family loved it. We have sent the word out to
many associates and friends about Florida Home Vacation Rentals.
Thank you again for all your assistance.
I just want to drop you a line telling you how much my family enjoyed our stay at 468
Pinewood Drive (Jul 6-13). The house was wonderful. The kids really loved the
pool. My five year said that he wants to live in the property all the time.
Everything was better than advertised. Thank you for your accommodations.
Wanted to let you know we had a
wonderful time at the house in Orlando. It really suited our needs. Thanks for help
making our Christmas enjoyable.

Hello Bernie at Florida Home Vacation Rentals
We were recent guests at your home in Creekside. I wanted to say how much our
family enjoyed staying in your lovely home. Our children enjoyed the pool
and we enjoyed the convenience to Disney and area shops and restaurants. The
location was perfect and the home was more than we expected. We also thank
your staff for the service they provided to us when we had any questions.
Thank you again and we will recommend you highly.

I just wanted to express a note of thanks for our recent stay in your
home this past week. I was very skeptical about doing this at first
since there are so many "schemes" out there and there always seems to be
a hitch to what is advertised. The home was excellent and provided the
vacation we have been looking for. The maintenance and upkeep were
superb on the home and the staff at the registration office could not
have been more helpful and friendly. It is refreshing to find a place
that actually offers what it advertises and more. I have already
recommended your homes to colleagues who will be visiting next year if
there is availability. Once again, thanks and do not hesitate to use me
as a reference if you need one.

Hi Bernard and Jean,
Just thought I'd drop you a note to tell you that we have had another fine
vacation in one of your fabulous houses in Orlando. Since I told so many of
my relatives last year about my wonderful vacation, we had to rent a larger
house this year to accommodate the extra family that wanted to attend. Just
as I suspected. No one was disappointed. We had such a wonderful time that
we have already began planning our vacation at one of your homes for next
year. With so many scams being played through the Internet these days, it
is so nice to find that you and your wife have a great service and my family
has never been disappointed. As always, I am continuing to tell everyone
that we meet about your web site and I hope you continue to get lots of
business (I also take lots of pictures while I'm there to show off to my
Thanks again for the great vacation,

Thanks for letting us use your beautiful home. Our family had a great time
and the kids really loved the pool, in fact the loved it so much that we had
a hard time convincing them to go to Disney.
Just a note to say thank you for providing us with such a wonderful
rental for our vacation. The house was everything you said it was and
more, I am going to recomend
it to everyone I know. We had a wonderful time there, after a long day
at the theme
parks it was nice to came back to a house and relax. Thanks again ,we
will look foward to our next visit, and staying in your rentals.
Dear Florida Home Vacation Rentals,
I will be sure to recommend you to all of my friends at work (I have
of friends at my job that vacation in Florida). I am going to email your
website location to everyone in my company (about 600 people) and I'm sure
that they will also tell their family and friends. I appreciate the great
service you have shown my family even though it was on short notice. Look
for a lot more Atlantans to use your services, because I am going to tell
them how nice you have been to me and my family.
Dear Florida Home Vacation Rentals,
Just wanted to drop you a note and thank you for providing such a
home for my husband and I to stay in on our Disney Vacation. Your home was
beautiful and we were more than thrilled with all the amentities. Wishing
you much luck and will be sure to book with you again when we go back!
Thank you again - Cheryl and Richard Koeberle
