“WOW WOW WOW”
Holiday Date: June 2014 Review Submitted: 16th July 2014
Where do I start Sandra the owner is an absolute delight to deal with and will go out of her way to help you in any way she can. Arkvilla definitely has the WOW factor and Sandra's extra little touches really do make the villa feel more homely.
Every room you go into you can see Arkvilla is a much loved home. The pool area is lovely and we spent many hours relaxing. The location is ideal and close to everything you need.
Arkvilla is by far the best villa we have stayed at and Sandra and her family should be very proud, thank you for sharing your home with us.

We stayed at Arkvilla between the 26th of May and 16th June 2014. We initially met Sandra Mandalia through a friend on Facebook who pointed out Arkvilla as a possibility for our holiday. For over a year before our holiday Sandra was always there helpful polite and friendly. We really did think this was to good to be true.
The moment we walked in Arkvilla was presented immaculately and it felt like an old friend giving our family a hug. Nothing like walking into a commercially owned property. Also there information pack is flawless. Everything you want to know and all your questions are answered. What you see is what you get and so much more. It is simply delicious and gorgeous. It is also the things you don't see. The quality of the furnishing is outstanding and everything is so comfortable
Whilst at Arkvilla Sandra was always there to help us. She and her family are simply amazing and it was an honour to stay in there home. Put simply. It is completely obvious how much care, love and devotion the Mandalia's put into Arkvilla.
Thankyou for an unbelievably amazing holiday. We will NEVER stay anywhere else.

First Stay in Villa
Holiday Date: 10 May 2014 Review Submitted: 26 May 2014
저와 4명의 대학원생들은 arkvilla에서 평생 잊을 수 없는 시간을 보냈습니다.
시설이 아주 훌륭했고, 가격도 매우 저렴해서 대만족이었습니다.
다음에 올랜도를 또 방문하게 된다면 반드시 그곳에서 다시 체류하고 싶습니다
집주인인 Sandra의 세심한 배려에도 깊은 감동을 받았습니다.
Translation:- We cannot thank you enough for giving us a wonderful chance to stay in your villa. We really enjoyed your lovely home and will not be able to forget the fantastic villa. Whenever we will travel the area, we hope to stay again in your villa. I and 4 grad students were deeply impressed with nice facilities and your deep consideration.

Holiday Date: 5th April 2014 Review Submitted: 13th April 2014
We hag a great stay at arkvilla. It was perfect for two families, had everything we needed, the games room was a real plus for the teenagers.
It's on a nice complex away from the main road.
The villa was exceptionally clean with great finishing touches
We loved our time at arkvilla and would highly recommend it.
Sandra the owner gave us fantastic tips and advice about our stay in Florida

First Trip in Vacation Home - Good Experience
Holiday Date: 8 March 2014 Review Submitted: 25 March 2014
家族４人で初めてバケーションレンタルを利用しました。やり方も分からないし、お金の支払い方法や鍵の受け渡し等最初は不安だらけでした。 ですが、メールでサンドラさんが非常に親切で丁寧な説明をしてくれて、不安が無くなっていきました。英語も簡単な単語で分かりやすく書いてくれました。 家は清潔でプール、ゲームルームなどもあり最高です。日本では絶対に体験出来ません。 この家を一度体験してしまったらもう高いお金を払って狭いホテルにはもう泊まれません。 最高でした！！！
This is the translation:-
Family of four was first vacation rentals. Passing for payment of money or keys, etc was riddled with anxiety at first, and I don't know how. to do it. But it is Sandra has done a kind and polite explanation, anxiety was gone. Easy to understand simple English words and wrote me.
House is clean, pool is best as well as a games room. Absolutely no experience in Japan. If you experience the house once again was the best !!!

Beautiful, clean and well equipped

Lovely home - the nicest we've stayed in in Florida, very well equipped with lots of games and a great pool to keep the kids busy.
Close to shops and restaurants (5mins drive) and the right side of town for the Disney parks.
Great support from the owner regarding information and joining instructions and Sandra called us on Christmas eve to check everything was OK and we were settling in. She had even arranged for a Christmas tree to be put up for us!
One thing to note - the pool heater seemed to struggle to keep the pool warm with December temperatures. Everything was in good working order.
All in all a great stay and we would visit again

"Fantastic Villa, Home from Home, Great Location, Lovely Pool, 5*"
Holiday Date: 22nd October - 5th November 2013 Review Submitted: 16th November 2013
Our second stay at "Arkvilla" and again everything perfect. We are a family of 5 plus grandparent, three children (5, 10 and 11) and have stayed in "Arkvilla twice now. This time, (Halloween 2013) was, as last time, perfect.
If you are reading reviews to choose the perfect place to stay look no further. The villa is immaculately clean, furnished to a very high standard and has a very homely feeling. Everything you could possibly require is in the villa, including a great play room for kids (our kids loved the air-hockey table). There are bikes incase you ever get time to go for a bike ride (we didn't unfortunately), car seats for kids, play station and everything you cold possibly require in the kitchen.
The pool is lovely, again very clean, lovely comfy loungers and quiet.
I can't say enough to be honest, we had a great stay, couldn't have wished for more saving already saving for a third visit.

"The Hollands Stay at Arkvilla"
Holiday Date: 14th to 28th June 2013 Review Submitted: 3rd July 2013
One word sums up Arkvilla - WOW! From the moment we booked with Sandra Mandalia in February 2012, to the moment we flew out to Orlando on 14th June 2013, Sandra was nothing but informative and helpful. Her tips and recommendations for places to visit including attractions and restaurants, not to mention ease of directions from Airport to Villa/Villa to Disney parks was fantastic!
Arkvilla itself was amazing! The pictures online were stunning, but to open the villa door for the first time and see just how big the place is was breathtaking. The pictures really do not do the villa justice. To wake up every morning and have breakfast on the patio whilst the kids played in the pool was so relaxing.
I would highly recommend anyone travelling to Orlando to book Sandra's villa. It is so important to have the luxury of being able to chill out away from the parks, crowds and heat and to be able to do that at such a stunning location is pure heaven. We really miss the home comforts of the villa. There is everything there you could possibly need.
The stroller in particular was a godsend for our daughter - who even though she is 6 years old - is very small for her age and very slow!! So to be able to whizz her round the parks was great!
We are already thinking about our next trip to Orlando and will 100% be booking Sandra's villa for this. We have never stayed in such a gorgeous villa and the care and attention to detail that Sandra and her family have makes the excitement of the holiday even more so. Thank you SO much to the Mandalia family for a memorable and amazing first trip to Orlando and to anyone thinking of booking this villa, DO IT! You WON'T regret it!
