Julie and Jon Whittaker
We got the itch early on. You can call it mouse fever, if you will. For over a decade, often two or three times a year, we have visited the region of Walt Disney World.  Our kids were young and we would make the trek down from Canada for the picturesque and often snowy drive to the Sunshine State. We quickly became hooked. 

Now, here we are, just two empty nester Canadians, sharing our love and passion for Florida.  We purchased this lovely home (formerly TLC Villa) and made an ode to carry on a beautiful tradition that was already created. 

When we aren’t full time real estate agents in Canada, this place is our true getaway.  It allows us the time to kick back by the pool and enjoy some silence.  Go enjoy a few rounds of golf and humble ourselves by not being professional PGA players.  A quick trip to the coast to get our fix of sand and salt air.  This home was meant for family and friends to have a place to visit, laugh and create memories. 

We now want to welcome you to our hideaway and create memories for yourselves.  And we do hope, you can make Calabay Getaway your forever place to escape to.

Great house with plenty of amenities. There are games in the garage plus a Xbox and games in front living room. Furniture and beds were comfortable. Hosts were super to work with. Attentive to any needs and reply back quickly to any questions you may have. Laini was excellent with cushioned Furniture at patio table and cushioned chairs that laid back. Nice comfortable patio couch and chairs under shaded area. This is a place I would definitely stay at again.

Relaxing and beautiful

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We had a wonderful stay. It was peaceful which made it very relaxing! The pool was inviting and refreshing. Everyday became a new adventure exploring the surrounding areas.

The Wild Bill's Airboat Ride was amazing! Lots to see and enjoy. Bubba was the main attraction. 80 yrs old and 1000 lbs.

Returning back to the house almost everyday for a swim and home cooked meal after each adventure! We did eat out a few times as there is a variety of places to eat close by.

We are usually homebodies, so being at the house was like being home but warmer...lol we are definitely looking forward to going again! Thank you to Julie and Jon for having the most pleasant and inviting home to stay in.

Best Disney Vacation Ever!

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Our stay at Calabay Hideaway was absolutely perfect and checked every box for my families Disney vacation!

The house itself was immaculately clean, spacious, vibrant and modern. It came equipped with everything we could possibly need and more… from luxuriously soft blankets and fluffy towels, all the kitchen essentials you could possibly need, comfy furniture and beautiful area rugs/decor! The laundry machine/dryer was a surprisingly great convenience to prevent this momma from returning home with heaps full of laundry.

The pool area was pristine and private, had lots of furniture for lounging, tanning or even for family meals outside. Heck, the BBQ was even new! The pool itself was clean, warm and could be lit up at night for a romantic vibe.

We all had a blast in the games room, and enjoyed all the extras the hosts provided us with (like ponchos for the unexpected rainy days).

The house was conveniently located super close to Disney, as well as lots of restaurants, grocery stores and touristy areas within a short drive. Having Starbucks in walking distance was a great treat. The community felt super safe and the neighbours were very friendly.

The hosts, Julie and Jon, were a delight to deal with. From our very first interactions it was clear they take pride in their home and want to make sure our stay was perfect in every way. They were friendly, informative, incredibly responsive and funny to boot!

Without a doubt in our minds we would absolutely recommend Julie and Jon’s Airbnb to anyone looking for a lovely Disney (or even just Orlando) vacation! We can't wait for our next vacation back and will hands down be staying at Calabay Hideaway!

We enjoyed our time here this winter. House was clean, comfortable furniture, tv's in all 4 bedrooms and 2 living rooms. Lanai was excellent with very comfortable outdoor couch and chairs, patio table with cushioned chairs, plus 4 cushioned chair that laid back for sunning. We spent alot of time on the lanai and in the pool. Beds were comfortable. If there are alot of people staying at one time there are several areas that people can go where you aren't all crowded into one room. Garage had a pool table, basketball, air hockey, fooseball and darts. Several games to play including Xbox. Great place for families and retirees. Quiet neighborhood. Hosts are very attentive and communicate back quickly. They are quick to take care of any problems that would arise. Everything went fine for us. We intend on booking this place again.

Your home away from home!

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

This little piece of heaven is conveniently located very close to Orlando in a quiet and lovely community. The home is very cozy & clean, with beautiful furnishings & decor all around the house. The bed was so comfy that my husband and I slept amazing every night which is typically unusual for us when we travel away from our own bed for a week. You can truly bring your whole family here as there is plenty of space!!! Lots of activities to keep the kids occupied (i.e games room, game console, their own tvs, pool, etc). The pool & lanai area is zen! There is a lounge area to catch some rays and also plenty of shade so you can escape the sun. The pool is clean and was the perfect temperature for us! The owners were lovely, with excellent communication which made our arrival and stay so seamless. They really did think of it all here! We had an incredible week and will absolutely be back again! Thank you so much!

Paradise home from home

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

This is our 2nd visit to this particular house in Calabay parc.
It was perfect the 1st time (although a little dated) , which led us to a 2nd visit. It did not disappoint.
Aside, from the owners being theme park nerds, like ourselves , along with being wonderful, friendly and accommodating people, the house is a combination of sheer bliss and contentment.
It is the perfect spot for your home away from home holiday.
We would definitely come back for a 3rd, 4th and maybe 5th visit…and more.
We would highly recommend this fabulous home for any length of time , whether it’s 1 week or 1 month.

No matter what your itinerary is coming back to the house w/that wonderful pool is perfect! Then you can dry off playing games in the garage. Beds were super comfy. Bathrooms average. All the perks of home. We had a teenage boy who enjoyed the area w/sofa bed. We did not have small children but the house is equipped w/high chair and pack n play. The house is conveniently located to all kinds of shopping.

Extremely Comfortable Villa and Highly Recommended

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

This was a return visit to Florida after 11 years and a 2nd visit to Calabay Parc - the villa is amazing, a home from home, with the added luxury of the pool and games room located in the garage. All bedrooms are perfectly equipped as is the kitchen. Adult daughter loved the laundry room and adult son loved the barbeque! 8 year old grandson was never out of the pool when we were not visiting the parks. Ideal location on Highway 27 for supermarkets and restaurants. We followed the road to the 192 to visit the parks to avoid the I4 and this worked very well. I4 just up the road if visiting Busch Gardens and beyond. Please take a look and add to your favourites when choosing your next villa in Davenport, Florida. The Millers.

Great stay in this villa

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We had a fantastic two weeks in Florida with the villa as a base.
The villa was everything we wanted, good size rooms which are air
conditioned and a lovely pool to swim in day or night. Good outside
sheltered area to sit in as well as loungers to soak up the sun.
The villa is well located to get to Tamper bay in the West & Kennedy space
centre in the east (within just over hours drive) and all the theme parks
which are central (within less than 30 mins. drive). There are lots of good
places to eat nearby, we used many of them.
The washing machine and tumble dryer make it easier to travel lighter.
The villa is well equipped to keep the kids amused with a pool table, table
tennis and table football.
The villas owners are thoughtful and left laminated instructions for the use
of equipment and rang once during the stay to ensure we had everything we
needed and to answer any questions we had.
We had a lovely stay.

TLC Villas has the "wow" factor

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

"Wow" was the first reaction from the family as we opened the door for the first time to our home for the next two weeks. Light and airy, clean and tidy, tastefully decorated, maintained to a high standard, comfortably furnished and well appointed.
Situated in a lovely, well maintained, peaceful community off the US 27 highway, TLC Villas was a restful and relaxing place to be after a long day at the theme parks.
The outlook from the pool is picturesque and not overlooked by neighbours and the pool itself is a good size with a funky light system for night time dips. The deck has ample space and furniture to sunbathe, chill or dine al fresco with the family.
The games room is an added bonus and has a myriad of games and entertainments that will keep the kids (young and old!) well occupied should the rain come or you just want a day off from the mouse.
TLC Villas is well situated to access the US 192 highway and I4 interstate for Disney, Universal, Seaworld etc. as well as the Florida Mall and Outlet stores with the US 27 highway offering plenty of local amenities including restaurants, diners, supermarkets, and gas stations.
It was an absolute pleasure to spend time at TLC Villas and we have no hesitation in recommending it as your next Florida home from home.

Fantastic Villa

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Our family of 5 had an amazing holiday at this fantastic villa and nobody wanted to come home!. It is ideally located for all the theme parks, with quick and easy access to the I4 motorway. At the same time, it is located in a peaceful and quiet community, so provides a perfect haven after a busy day at the parks. The villa is spacious and well equipped, with everything we needed for our holiday. Our children loved the pool, which is not overlooked, and made good use of the great games room. I booked the villa directly with the owners, who were extremely efficient and helpful, and provided us with all the information we needed for our stay. The directions from Orlando airport were fantastic! We would not hesitate to return. Thank you.

Wonderful Holiday

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

From our first enquiry to the very end of our stay this was the best experience. The booking process was easy and any question was answered promptly. We were a family of 7, grandparent, parents and 3 children and all enjoyed our stay in this lovely villa. Comfortably furnished (great beds), spotlessly clean and with everything you could wish for in the kitchen. We didn't do any cooking, - the most was breakfast and assembling salads in the evening - but if we wanted to everything you might need was there.
We really enjoyed the pool and the children loved the pool floats/toys. Also having beach blankets and some chairs was great when we ventured away from the Orlando area.
The area was great and really well maintained, plenty of shops/restaurants nearby and not too far from the Theme parks. We did Universal this year and had no problems. We arrived into MCO and the directions were faultless, better than Google maps!
I hope that we will be able to return in the not too distant future.
Many thanks for allowing us to stay in your villa and adding so much to our holiday.

Easter holiday

We took our daughter and grand daughter for a Disney Easter break. The villa is clean and well stocked with everything you could possibly want for a family holiday.
