We had a great time at the Villa! We arrived to find Highly spacious and thoroughly clean Villa in a great location especially for supermarkets and places to eat. With a wide variety of restaurants just down the road, finding a place to eat is not a problem! The villa itself has been well-equipped with activities in the games room and for around the pool to keep you occupied if you decided you wanted a relaxing day at the villa. Also, as it is not overlooked by anything else it is very private making it great for a day around the pool, even better with the fact that the sun overlooks it all across the day! It is the perfect distance from the parks as they are only a short drive away (approximately 30 minutes) and all well signposted from the villa. Denise and John were extremely helpful with our booking and are always on hand prior to our holiday to give advice on places to visit whilst we were there. Overall we had a fantastic holiday and stay at the Villa!!

We had a lovely stay in Orlando, and found that the villa was in a great location. Far enough way from Disney, but only a simple drive to all the attractions. The villa was a lovely home, we all enjoyed being there. it was lovely to have such a homely base. Ideal for us, it was great to have the space.

We had the best time! The home was comfortable and quiet. Originally we were looking at staying within minutes of Disney but ended up staying here instead because of booking problems with another condo. We were so glad we did! After being at the parks all day it was so nice to have some place that wasn't crowded and was quiet! The drive was fairly short to all the parks. Having Walmart right next to us and the fantastic Dora's pizza right down the road was great!
Any questions or concerns were answered by phone and text within hours. And a follow up email was always sent to make sure all was well. We were really made to feel like we were booking with a friend instead of a stranger. This home was very family/child friendly and that didn't go unnoticed!
The only regret was being so busy we didn't get to enjoy the pool or the game room to the fullest!
We will be back!

Great holiday home for family
My family and i stayed here from 13-27th august 2015. The home is lovely,spacious, and clean with everything you need to have a comfortable stay. The pool is the cleanest and largest we have had at a private villa., and you are not over looked by other villas. The gamesroom is great for those spare minutes with the family and we used the pool table throughout the holiday.
The southern Dunes estate is well stiuated too, and we stayed here a few years ago at another villa, because it has a walmart next door to the estate, it is about 20 minutes from legoland and 25 from Disney parks. The site also has security guard presence which is another plus point.
The property manager is helpful and friendly, and the whole booking process with Denise was easy and friendly, and getting access to the villa really easy. I thoroughly recommend this home to families as we had a wonderful holiday there.family from UK
Luxurious and clean villa for a comfortable vacation.
We booked this villa for the second time this year (2013), and have booked for 2014. We are very satisfied with the house, and its owners, they are good people who care for their guests. The pool and gardens are accuratley serviced every single week. Everything was perfectly clean and set up apon arrival. There is also a large residental pool that we enjoyed , and never crowded, we where the only ones using it. Definatley recommend this home.
Since this review the guest has returned every year, and has booked again for 2018.

It was lovely to return to Cove Retreat for yet another holiday - May 2015.
The villa is beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday. Beds are comfortable and the lounges are bright and airy. Lovely times spent around the pool just relaxing in the peace and quiet, the pool was very clean and the water actually sparkled. It really is a home from home.
The photos on the website do not do the Villa justice. It is situated on Southern Dunes Estate which has a security gate at the entrance and also a very good golf course. It is a short drive to all the Disney attractions and within reasonable driving distance to beaches on both East and West coasts of Florida. Will certainly be coming back again.

This is our second stay at this villa
It's been a few years since our last visit and We were not disappointed.You feel safe as soon as you enter and are aware of the security guards presence.
As we are elderly we did not have to go far to the local shops or the club house.
The villa is very clean and well kept with all that is needed for a home from home feeling.
The property manager was very helpful from the moment we arrived to departure but not too intrusive.
It was a relaxing stay we could stay round the pool or visit the nearby attractions or nearby towns
Saving to go again
Excellent service from the owner, and management company. Quiet and peaceful location. This is the 1st time in 12 visits where we feel inclined to return again to the same villa.
Couple from UK
Lovely, clean, spacious villa with great pool and games area for the children. Villa is located in the gated community of southern dunes area which is close to the parks. I will definitely book this villa again.

Just returned from a great holiday at Cove Retreat. From our initial enquiry as to availability for the villa, to our return of the security deposit we've found the owners to be very efficient in responding to questions and providing any information that we requested. The villa is situated on a gated community which provides an additional sense of security for your visit. The villa is spacious, very clean and is very well equipped in terms of kitchen appliances and utensils. The pool is fantastic, as it is south facing and has the added bonus on being open at the back and not overlooked by another villa. We used the pool heating during our stay and found the pool to be nice and warm.
We had a great time at the villa and would encourage you to consider this villa for your own holiday, you won't be disappointed.
