5829 Great Comms throughout As promised some words, for your website. Gail, Darren, We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villa, with it being in a residential development it really felt like a home from home. We could have stayed there for much longer. There was plenty of space, both to relax, and dine, but also wardrobe space – there was loads of it! Whilst we were too busy to take advantage of the games, books and the games tables in the garage, it was great to have so much choice. The pool was the perfect size and was a great way of unwinding after a long day in the parks or shops! The little things like the rain macs for wet days at the park were a great touch too. Once we’d stocked the fridge , we didn’t really want for anything. The location was good, particularly convenient for Animal Kingdom but also allowing alternative routes to and from the other parks and great for our return flight from Tampa. Not only would we return, but we’d also recommend to friends and family. Finally your comms throughout the whole process have been great! Thanks again for sharing your villa with us!! Kind regards, Gary, Claire & Tabitha

Dear Darren and Gail

We are all home safe and sound now and back to reality, but would of loved to stay longer. Defo missing the warm weather.We all had a lovely stay at Pluto’s palace. Lovely spacious homely villa, very clean and didn’t need anything as it was all there. I would definitely stay here again in the near future and also would recommend this to friends and family and anybody that is going over the pond to Orlando Florida. Me and my family really enjoyed our stay, and want to thank you Darren and Gail for everything yous have done it is much appreciated. once again thank you both so so much for our stay at Pluto’s palace, and what yous have done. 😊
Kind regards

We booked Pluto’s palace for our stay whilst visiting all the wonderful parks and places Orlando as to offer. The villa was amazing had everything we needed and more was very clean with loads of space for everyone to unwind after a busy day.The villa is in a perfect location for all the parks, beaches, Shops and Supermarkets, also great to relax by the pool enjoying the sunshine.We was there for Halloween, my children aged 10 & 13 Was amazed with how America people celebrate it would definitely recommend this time of year.

Darren & Gail gave us loads of useful information and tips for our stay and was very accommodating.We would highly recommend a stay in Plutos Palace and will be recommending to all my family and friends.

Thank you Darren & Gail

Hi Gail & Darren,

We’re back down to earth with a bump now! We had a fantastic holiday and are very sad to be home. The villa was lovely, very spacious and more than adequate for our needs. The kids loved the pool and the games room (we had a two very rainy days so the latter was invaluable!). The location of the villa was excellent and as we hope to return to Orlando in the not so distant future we would definitely look into another stay at Pluto’s Palace. I would also definitely recommend it to anyone looking to rent a villa.

Thank you for renting your villa and making our stay such a pleasant one. It’s always a bit wary booking something independently over the internet as there are so many horror stories out there but we needn’t have even given it a second thought. The area felt safe too with the alarm giving extra peace of mind when we weren’t in the property.

Kind regards,

Hi Darren and Gail
Thanks for the email. We have just about got used to being home, back to work and the weather!
We had a great time at the villa thanks, it was just as we had remembered from the previous time. Very comfortable, all mod cons and great to be able to go for an early morning swim before a hard day at the parks!
We would definitely return to Pluto’s palace ourselves and recommended it to any of our friends and family
Kind Regards

Hi, Gail and Darren

We had the most amazing time. The villa was perfect, so glad we got pool heat in the end as it was so nice on your achy legs after all that walking. The cool bags and ponchos came in really useful as did the cups for the parks.

Thanks so much for everything it’s a holiday we will remember always.

Love The Williams family 

Hi Gail, Darren and family

Yes has been a bit of shock wave coming home to our lovely climate here but had a fantastic time and created a lot of memories to treasure.Will definitely think of Pluto’s Palace if we return to Florida and will spread the word to friends and family.Pluto’s Palace was a welcome home from home and ideally located for a Florida Adventure and would highly recommend to anyone looking to create some treasured memories.

The villa has everything a family needs and more to be able to relax and enjoy there vacation from the moment you open the door till the time comes to finally close it for the last time.

Hi Just got back from your lovely villa it was like home from home everything you could possibly want.The pool is one of the cleanest I have ever had when visiting usa, will certainly be using you again hopefully when we return.

Hi Darren & Gail

Thanks ever so much for your email.  We have been meaning to reply every day since we received it but now that we’re back on the treadmill the days just pass us by 🙂
Our holiday was amazing and we can’t thank you enough for allowing us to use your home whilst we were there.  It was literally home from home and we made good use of the games room, heated swimming pool and laundry facilities.  Our Daughters loved being able to go in the pool after a hard day of walking around the Parks.
As for visiting Pluto’s Palace again in the future – we would love to if you would have us!!  We plan to visit Florida again in 2013 and your number will be the first we look up to book our accommodation.  In the meantime, if any of our friends or relatives enquire about accommodation in Florida we will certainly be recommending Pluto’s Palace!
Once again, thank you and your family for such a wonderful holiday.  We also put some comments in your Guest Book for other guests to read.
Take care and hopefully speak to you again soon.

Hello Gail and Darren
We had a wonderful holiday and thank you very much.  We couldn’t have wanted for any more from your villa, was the perfect base camp at the end of a long day shopping or at the parks 🙂  It was great being a short distance away but still away from all the hustle and bustle.  Great having the Publix around the corner and we liked Chillis so much we went twice!  It was great having the kitchen and the fridge as we enjoyed having breakfast every morning by the pool of cereal and peanut butter and jelly on toast!  The pool was a treat at the end of a long day and we only wish that we had been able to spend more time at Pluto’s Palace as it was starting to feel just like our home 🙂   I would thoroughly recommend your villa to anyone I know visiting Orlando. We bought a brand new cool box/bag which did us very well filled with ice in the car and we have left it in your cupboard in the kitchen, I’m sure your guests will use it too.
Getting off the plane yesterday was rubbish, I am already desperate to come back, believe me, and when we do want to return I will be sure to drop you a line 🙂
Thank you so much once again!!!

Dear Gail, Darren, Ryan,Ethan and Evan
We wish to thank you all so much for the most wonderful accommodation at ‘Pluto’s Palace.’ The villa was spotless and beautifully-presented. The swimming pool was perfect for a pre-excursion swim of a morning, or  for a post-excursion wind down of an early evening, or indeed for just hanging out and relaxing. We had every thing we needed and found the location to be absolutely ideal.The management team  for the villa were helpful and very pleasant. Also, of most use, were all of the little tips and information (directions, car hire info, Disneyland ticket agent..) sent to us by yourselves.
We definitely would love to stay at ‘Pluto’s Palace’ again!

-Best Wishes Nicky, Des, Charlotte and Jeremy.

We had a wonderful time staying at Pluto’s Palace and will definitely be returning on our next vacation to Florida. The house was beautiful and it was so nice to be able to sit on the patio and watch the kids enjoy the pool. My sons would have stayed in the pool all week if we let them. We really had a great time!!! We will definitely recommend this place to our friends and family. We even took pictures to convince them.

Thank you

Hi Gail and Darren

We loved our stay in Plutos Palace – it is a lovely spacious villa in a very convenient location for the parks and just enjoying the Florida sunshine! The pool is brilliant, much bigger than we expected and the place feels like home. Thank you – really hope to return again one day!
Thanks for everything!

Hi Darren and Gail
Just a short e-mail to say thanks for letting us stay at your villa we had a fantastic time the kids loved the pool and the toys. We went to Disney and Seaworld and swam with the dolphins at discovery cove it was the best holiday ever! Holly said she wanted to stay forever! (only wish we could!)
Thank-you again

Hi Gail,

We had an absolute wonderful time at your villa & Disney! The girls were taken back by everything we experienced the home/airhockey/pool/convertible/Disney/characters they meet. They girls wore birthday shirts and Disney birthday buttons so they definitely got the royal treatment.(And loved it). We could not of had a better time everything was perfect, including the weather.
Finally, thank you so much for the return of David’s phone. We thought we
had done such a thorough job checking the home over…oh well.

– David and Valerie Arnzen. New York

Gail and Darren
Thank you.
We had a superb time at Pluto’s Palace, in fact probably the most relaxing and comfortable holiday we have ever had. The villa is superbly appointed and maintained to a very high standard. I would have no trouble whatsoever in recommending it to any of my friends and colleagues let alone somebody I do not know. As you know we always go to Florida and have done for many years. We have stayed at lots of different locations and so I feel reasonably qualified to make a judgement – in summary, this was the best.Rest assured that I will be booking it next year even if I have to go to some lengths to rearrange holiday dates to fit in with your vacancies.

– Kind regards and once again, many thanks,
Don and Elaine Coffey
