where do you book your villa?

We are looking for a villa for 2015.
It will be our first time in a villa.
Wondering what's the best site to look at that has good reviews etc.

Also what areas do you like to stay at?

I am very very nervous about booking a villa so need advice, recommendations etc.

Thanks. :-)

booked through Homeaway.co.uk - once you book with the owner you register your booking to them and they guarentee you a refund if the owners go bust or anything. The villa we always try and book first is in westridge it is beautiful and is only £325 evey week of the year (+70 pool heat). We first booked it 4 years ago so its been under the same owners for at least all that time- however, the last twice we have tried it has alreay been booked - but never mind we did the free dining because of that ). If we were to go back even when free didning is on we would still book this for at least 1 week out of the two - we just loved the villa more than on site- but couldn't resist at leat one week of free dining

Not sure if I am allowed to give any more detail about which one on here, so message me if you want more info..


I do remember that there is away to go onto the local area registration and check that the owners aren't about to go under (many are at the moment) - ie check that everything is paid up to date and that the villa is not up for sale - we did this check on the villa in westridge years ago but as we try and use the same one we haven't rechecked it - and I can't remember how to do it - but I'm sure some will do on here.

Westridge to disney = 20 mins to universal = 30-40/mins


Many years ago we rented a villa out the other side of Kiss way out boogy creek way - good links into disney - but I would not recomend that area at all - bit downbeet

I've not booked before, but if we do it'd be my neighbours villa as I know he's trustworthy and he goes out a lot to maintain it etc.

Not sure I'm allowed to post links etc as it might class as advertising, but it's 5 mins from Disney (Indian Creek) and has 4 bedrooms (1 king, 1 queen, 2 twins) and 3 bathrooms.

PM me if you'd like his contact details and the website link to have a look.
