Meet The Owner
John and Sarah Rooke
We are John and Sarah Rooke and jointly own this website orlandovillas.com along with Roger and Carolyn Parry.
We live in a 400 year old farmhouse in Bolas Heath, a rural area in North Shropshire, in the UK and have two children, Isaac who is 16 and Freya who is 14.
John has been visiting Florida since 1978. We used to stay in hotels in the Disney area but with the birth of the children we found that it was no fun at all being cramped up in the same hotel room. We thought that there must be a better way of staying in Florida that offered the extra flexibility you need when travelling with children.
For our next visit, we rented a villa near Disney and were immediately taken by how spacious it was compared to the hotel rooms we were used to. Also we liked the fact that it worked out about the same price, if not cheaper, than a hotel room! We were so impressed that we began to wonder if we should buy a Florida home of our own.
This dream became reality in 2001 when we completed on our new vacation home in Crescent Lakes. We were the first people to stay in it and we have to say it exceeded even our wildest expectations! We are very proud homeowners and take great care to ensure our guests have the holiday of a lifetime.
In April 2003 we completed on a brand new 7 bedroom, 4 bathroom home in Crescent Lakes.
We firmly believe that friendly, personal service is the key to ensuring the satisfaction of anyone who stays at our home. Nothing is too much trouble for us - all you have to do is ask!
So what are you waiting for - you wont be disappointed!
For privacy reasons, the marker on the map shows the Crescent Lakes community location and not actual villa location.
Our absolutely huge 7 bedroom vacation home (sleeping 16 guests in style and comfort) has 2 magnificent bedrooms downstairs and a further 5 sumptuous bedrooms upstairs. To the rear of the house is a stunningly beautiful lake (ideal for fishing), beyond which is a breathtaking mature wooded conservation area, where exotic local wildlife can be seen roaming in a completely natural habitat. This fabulous aspect means that you are not overlooked as you relax by the 30 x 17 foot private pool.
Make no mistake ~ This house is Huge! It is one of the biggest houses in the Orlando area and is absolutely ideal for large groups of people or family gatherings! Our beautiful Florida home has everything you will need and more for that perfect vacation in the Orlando area.
Our promise: We pride ourselves on the high standard of accommodation we offer guests in all of our villas and are confident that you will not be disappointed.

Crescent Lakes is adjacent to a nature reserve and is surrounded by
a conservation area. There is abundant wildlife in the vicinity, plus
horse riding stables and a childrens farm. As the name suggests,
Crescent Lakes is inundated with small lakes, which are all well
stocked with fish and sometimes baby alligators.

We loved it
5.0 / 5
We are back in the UK now, trying very hard to get back into normal life. We had the most amazing time in Florida, for our wedding, and having spent a great amount of time in your truly beautiful house. We are thinking very seriously about a move there in a few years. Having been before we realised how much time can be spent out at parks and because of this we managed to plan ahead, that we would have equal time in parks and back at the villa. Which was brilliant.
Having parents, grandparents and our children, all under one roof is a rarity and time spent that way is precious. Making many treasured memories there. We thank you again for or stay there.
We spoke to both Peter and Suzanne while we were there (lovely people) for minor issues. One was that the wifi went off. This was rectified the same day. The other was that some of the mesh around the pool came away after a strong storm. We hope that everything was left as it should? Peter was there as we left and assured us all was ok. Do you need our bank details for the refundable security deposit?

Just wanted to take the time to say thankyou for the two weeks we spent in your villa.
We had hoped for our dream holiday and we got it and your beautiful villa was a key part of that. Nobody wanted to leave and we have so much still to see and do. Without doubt we will be returning to Florida as soon as we can and we would hope to use the villa again.

5.0 / 5
To anyone considering using John & Sarah's Florida Villa, I highly recommend this wonderful home. Our 9 member family spent 10 beautiful days enjoying the villa, Disney and the surrounding area. Everything was perfect and extremely clean. We had enough room to be together yet separate when needed. A special treat was the location of the villa on a natural wild life lake. We so enjoyed the birds that visited the lake while we had our morning coffee. Another added feature was the game room in the garage area. Perfect for 'kicking back' after a day at Disney and just 'hanging out'. You can't go wrong with this villa!
