Guest remarks from our book in the villa.
These are genuine guest comments from our guest book in the villa or from the emails I get on their return. Each time I am there it is with a great deal of pleasure that I read the remarks made by our guests. They are also a very helpful bunch and are full of tips, information and they recommend things that they have enjoyed. So I photograph them to remind me what people have said.
I have not reproduced the photographs themselves as they often include personal details. I have also not included the tips as that would make this page too long but if you go you will see them all.
If you want to see more then check out our Facebook page - Moorgate Villa - lots of news and views and you can ask the people who have been there what it is like.
It is wonderful to be able to say that we have helped to make some fantastic memories. Thanks to all of them for their kind words- if they are happy then so am I!
Just a few reviews:
Had a fabulous time at Moorgate villa! It made the holiday, Jean was amazing throughout the whole booking and during the stay when I put the alarm code in wrong by accident oops my ears are still ringing! but the villa was perfect loved the pool and Jacuzzi. the location was also great best location I've stayed! thank you x

The family and I have stayed twice at Moorgate. It is a fantastic place to stay. Centrally located, near a variety of shopping,groceries and all the parks. This year Feb 2014 we even did the Daytona 500 NASCAR race.
OK it was a heavy rain, high wind, lightning and thunder and even a tornado warning, but was a great event only an hour or so away. A Disney day starts at 9 but nap/pool time from 1 to 5pm is a great naptime for kids and gives you another 6pm until midnight Disney adventure with your kids awake!! Jean has done a great job in furnishing Moorgate and offers everything you will need as if you were home. Jean makes Moorgate your home away from home. Looking forward to another future stay.
Heidtman family -February 2013, 2014 and booked for 2015
Our 6th visit to Florida and as usual we stayed on highway 27, a superb area to visit all there is to visit. Highgate Villa is spacious holiday home with clean spacious rooms and a well equipped kitchen . The pool area is huge and made for lounging with a good sized pool and jacuzzi . The lounge boasts ample comfy seats and a large tv. The master bedroom is to die for with a king size plus mega comfortable bed and double power shower. Security is superb with easy to use key box and alarm. You don't even have to put the bins out , someone does it for you. A great place to relax after the parks and many shops, bars, restaurants close by for your convenience. The owners will do all they can to help, we arrived a day early and they managed to accommodate us .We will be back. .

Had a two week break with my husband and 2 daughters, the villa was everything we were expecting and more. We have been to Florida many times and i must say the standard of accomadation was one of the best we have ever had. The villa had everything you could want for a relaxing stay and unlike previous accomadation the villa had plenty of poolside furniture. The furnishings inside were excellant and having access to wireless internet was great with daughters in there 20's. The information and contact from the owners was first class and made booking and getting access to the property hassle free. Would love to go back and would have no hesitation in recomending the villa to family and friends. One of my best holidays in Florida!

Excellent family choice
We have stayed at Moorgate Villa four times and were very satisfied with our choice. We would have not returned after the first time had we had a bad experience. The value of the price for all the amenities can not be beat. After long days at the parks, it is nice to have your own pool, everyone has their own beds and bathrooms! No sharing of that is great. The house is big enough to feel like you have your own space, and when you all want to eat & be together, there is room as well! It has all the amenities of home & the owner makes you feel at home! Very close to grocery & shopping as well as the parks! Great deal and our family loves it!

I would thoroughly recommend this villa - it is spacious and has soooo many facilities. I am already looking to book again for next year!!!! Information and communication with owner was great Would love to recommend soem local restaurants but we were so busy each day and the poolside area so extensive, we had a BBQ every night and relaxed with a few games of pool in the games room - no need to venture out :-)

Wonderful Place to Stay
For my 50th birthday, I brought my husband, two adult sons and a girlfriend to this lovely home. The instructions from Jean to find the home and to enter were simple after our long drive from Ottawa. The home was immaculate and large enough to hold a family. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals, if we wanted. The swimming pool was clean and relaxing and I have recommended this to friends who are travelling to Orlando.

This is our fifth trip t Florida & 3rd time in a villa - the best one we have been in. Close to all the attractions but also quiet and great for relaxing by the pool. The extended section of the pool is great for sunbathing. Everything you need for a great holiday is here. Thanks for allowing to stay in your beautiful home.
Brameld and Gregory family August 2011Hansons May 2011
Our stay at you lovely villa was brilliant and enjoyed by the 'Bramelds' and 'Gregorys'. The amenities were excellent, the pool and jacuzzi were a delight, and the location perfect. The added bonus of site security added to it all.
Many thanks for allowing us to rent the villa - if the 'Clan' decide to return we'll certainly be back in touch.
We really enjoyed the house and it came highly recommended by friends. Loved the location to all the parks + shopping. The kids very much enjoyed the pool and game room!The only downfall was the game room being so hot for the kids to stay at length. Other than that a great trip + we will be back.
Note: We bought a new fan for game room - but the garage door does still open so you can do that as well - just remember to close it properly afterwards.

Just to say a quick thank you for the use of your lovely home. We had a
great time. The villa looks even better than on the video. The weather
was great and we had loads of fun at the parks. We hope to use your villa
Lovely villa. We have been to Florida many times but this villa is best situated for most things you'd like to do.You obviously care a great deal about your home + the surroundings. Thanks for a wonderful time.
The villa is fantastic, very homely and perfect after a tiring day out and about. Jean has been so helpful and always at the end of an email to answer my questions. Will definately stay her again and recommend to all. Thankyou.
The Gordon family - December 2010/January 2011
We had a wonderful stay in your beautiful home . It was very welcoming and made us feel like we were at home (but without the snow)
The Small family - August 2010
We have had a wonderful stay here. This is our 16th visit to Orlando but this has been the best villa we have been in. Jean was very kind and helpful before we left the UK.
Janis and family - July 2010
Waht a wonderful home to come "home" to each night! Everything was terrific and there were lots of dishes for our large group as well as all the amenities. We will be back for sure! Thank you for everything!
The Smiths June/July 2010
This villa was excellent having recently been redecorated by owners. The accommodation was much bigger than we expected and the photo's don't do it justice. Beautifully furnished and fitted out. Very close to Disney but away from the busier parts of town. Great supermarkets within a couple of minutes drive from the house. Secure entry to complex which was appreciated at night and during the day when you are at the parks. Would definately return to villa. Thanks for a great vacation.
Gorter family Netherlands - May 2010
We did have a very fine stay in this villa and also the location is perfect. This is our 6th visit to Florida so we know what is important for us. This stay is complete.
Our daughter became ill and needed a doctor we called the management company who gave us the address for a doctor (consult and medicine for $99) we did some phone calls before and others were asking $300+.
Arnold family from England April 2010
Absolutely outstanding villa - cannot imagine anywhere better to stay for access to parks, restaurants, shops. Jean has been excellent throughout the Icelandic volcano disruption and put our minds at rest when it looked like we were going to be stranded. Will definately recommend to anyone we know who wants to visit Florida
the White family England - November 2009
This is our second visit to Florida and we have stayed at this villa both times. Excellent accomodation, easy access to all attractions & airport. Would recommend November as a good month to visit, no queues good weather. We will be back
The Plunketts & Kurtz's of Ohio - October 2009
We have really enjoyed the house while here in sunny Florida. It has been welcoming and relaxing to come back to after a long day out and about at the parks. The only downfall has been the cool pool water - we will definately pay to have the pool heated in the future. We loved the house. - thanks again
Nixons of Canada- August 2009
Wow! What a truly amazing house - very beautiful and comfortable. It was great to come home and relax in the pool and hot tub after a very long day at the park. We thank you so much for the use of your home.
Hill family of England- August 2009
Second visit to Florida and just as fantastic this time. This lovely villa an added bonus - everything you could possibly want
The LeBoefs of Louisiana - 3 stays
Awesome home to vacation at. Excellent layout and makes you feel at home. We will recommend highly to family and friends. This was our children's first trip. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your house
This is our 2nd time to stay at this villa - it was great! We love coming here - makes us feel right at home. We will be back for Thanksgiving and can't wait. It is awesome. Jean is a great hostess. Thanks again for allowing us to stay!
We have enjoyed staying at this house. This is our third time in Disney World and our third time at the house too. We love it here. Each of the kids get their own bed and bathroom. Thanksgiving here was great. Hope to be back soon.
The Shirey family Maryland - July 2009
We cannot express how much we love this house. It was quite possibly everything we hoped for and definately our favorite thing about our trip. We spent too much time at Disney, Sea World and next time plan to spend most of our most of our vacation here. The kids loved swimming just before bed and the hot tub was wonderful to help us adults relax in as well.
We hate to leave this little bit of paradise - but are very thankful we could spend time here. Thank you!!
The Touchtones from Texas - July 2009
This is our first time to stay in a home & it was wonderful. Having a kitchen was awesome, saved a lot on food - took small cooler to Disney, put it in a locker & ate lunch there. Also having the washer & drier access - well, didn't have to over pack to make sure everyone had enough clean clothes
The leaver family from England - April
