Meet the owner

Robert Peters
We are Robert & Donna. We are a friendly, outgoing couple and have been married for 30+ years. Robert designs and builds new houses, and Donna sells recreational trailers. Robert is a creative whiz with a strong design and writing orientation, and Donna is an excellent salesperson and a master chef with a huge library of cookbooks, and a very strong artistic and creative flair as well.

We LOVE travelling in Florida, and love our villa located just south of Walt Disney World. We have spent a great deal of time upgrading and tweaking it in order to make our guests feel pampered and comfortable. Without doubt, our villa has the nicest landscaping in our entire subdivision, and one of the most private yard and pool areas to be found in the entire Disney area!

We have three (now) adult children, the eldest who worked as a cast member at Epcot in Disney's International Program for over a year.

Robert is a bit of a theme park buff, and very knowledgeable about the Central Florida area. All of this allows him to provide excellent advice to our villa guests about their trips; what to do, where and when to go, how much time to allow, things suitable for children, etc. We also understand how to 'do' Disney on a small budget, or a big one if that is your taste, and are happy to share our advice and experience with our many guests.

We've visited Florida as a family many times, and our son worked as a cast member of Disney. We've set up our Florida home to make visiting central Florida fun, stress-free, and economical for families just like yours. When you stay at Breezy Oak Villa, you get our personalized service as a family who knows the area, knows the parks, and knows what you need to have a fabulous Florida family vacation, plus the professional service of skilled business owners with 25 years experience in customer service. We take great care of our guests! Inquire about your preferred dates now!

(Don't worry! Be happy! Doo doo de dooh de du doo do, do doo de dooooooooo! Come on... everybody be happy now!)


On the edge of a beautiful conservation area, with a yard backed by forest and lush landscaping, this terrific villa provides tranquility, intimate privacy and safety, yet is a short fifteen minute drive to the Magic Kingdom in Disney World. You’ll cherish the memories you make in this comfortable 4 bed/2 bath villa that raises the standard for Orlando vacation rentals.

Situated on a on a large pie-shaped lot at the back of a cul-de-sac, you'll enjoy the peace and tranquility of Happy Oak Villa! You’ll appreciate the care and attention to detail that goes into this beloved Florida home. Everything is considered, planned and provided to make your stay the best it can be.

For an idea of what our properties are like, please also see Breezy Oak Villa, listing #3586 here on Orlando Villas. This is our other property with an identical floor plan – located just two doors away, with 50+ 5-Star Reviews! Forgive us if the information here is very similar to that for Breezy Oak Villa! The properties are VERY similar (but also unique). If something works well, why not repeat it, right? Now twice as many guests can enjoy this unique combination of location, quality and amenities.

The Villa

This fully air-conditioned villa comfortably sleeps eight people (on recent quality mattresses) in four bedrooms, each with its own closet. (We don't use a sofa bed to increase capacity). Three double bedrooms (2 Twins, 1 Queen, 2 Twins) and the main bath (sink, toilet, tub w/shower) are located on one side of the home, while the master bedroom (King Double Pillow-Top Mattress) with ensuite (sink, toilet, large walk-in shower with direct access to the lanai) and walk-in closet is located on the other side of the home.

You’ll find the kitchen well-equipped with quality appliances, cutlery and cookware for family meals, far beyond the typical area vacation home standards. New Quartz Countertops December '22! Quality furniture, electronics, and games room allow you to enjoy your vacation in carefree style. The open layout home encourages everyone sharing and enjoying their time together, while the four bedrooms allow them to retreat to their own private space when desired. And the pool…

The pool at Happy Oak Villa is a wonderful bonus you'll love to use. Enjoy relaxing in the 89º degree water, listening to tropical birds in the forest beyond, serenading you as your troubles float away on a gentle Florida breeze. In the evenings, wind down in the relaxing spa on the expanded pool deck. Both pool and spa are professionally maintained for you. All you have to do is enjoy them!

The lounge opens out to the Lanai (covered deck) which overlooks the pro-maintained SouthWest -facing pool, completely covered by a screen enclosure to keep out insects and debris. A separate entrance gives access to the pool from the master bath. Jump out of the pool and into the shower to warm up and rinse off!

Wonderful Privacy

Unlike many vacation homes, Happy Oak Villa provides great privacy because it has no rear neighbours! The pool overlooks a large yard, bordered by a small pond and tropical forest. The villa surrounds the pool and lanai on two sides. No one will be watching you in your pool, and you won't be looking at them in theirs either! No barking dogs, obnoxious or noisy neighbors to bother you... just the sounds of nature and your own family splashing in the clear water of your very private pool under the warm Florida sun!

(As you study vacation rentals, pay close attention to the proximity of neighbors to the pool enclosure, especially on the side of the home. You’ll discover that a ‘private’ pool usually isn’t so private after all, even at homes without rear neighbors.)

Security and Convenience

Amenities like Fibre-Optic Internet and Streaming TV, with Hi-Speed Wifi, games console, TVs in every bedroom, a games room with a gorgeous slate pool table, quality foosball table and commercial arcade video game with hundreds of games, provide hours of fun for our guests.

Even though the home is located in a very safe area, we take the security and comfort of our guests seriously. Emergency lighting, fire extinguishers, pool safety alarms, smoke detectors, remote monitored alarm system, CCTV cameras monitoring the exterior front and sides (only) of the home, electronic door locks and automatic patio door closers, along with remote-monitored heating, A/C, hot water, electrical, internet, pool pump and heating, mean we can promptly provide service if needed (often before guests are aware of an issue).


Just outside of the tourist zone around Disney World, Happy Oak Villa provides privacy and safety for your family, in an area where you can enjoy an evening stroll by the lake, and your kids can play outside unattended. There are no gates at the entrance of Thousand Oaks – we don’t need them! The best way to be safe in the Orlando area is to stay in a very safe area.

On most evenings you can hear the fireworks going off at Epcot from our doorstep! You can drive from the villa to the parking lot of the Magic Kingdom (at the far north end of the Disney resort) in less than 15 minutes!

Happy Oak Villa is close enough for convenience, but off the beaten path enough to provide you with all the safety, rest and relaxation you need!

Guest Experience

As experienced visitors to the central Florida region with our own family, plus additional knowledge and expertise (our son worked for Disney as a cast member at Epcot), we’ve welcomed over 6500 couples and families to our properties since 2009. We've set up our home to make visiting central Florida fun, stress-free, and comfortable for families just like yours.

When you stay with us, you get personalized service from a family who knows the area and the parks, and knows what you need to have a fabulous Florida family vacation, plus the professional assistance of skilled business owners with 25 years experience in customer service. We take great care of our guests!

• No premiums for paying by credit card. It keeps guest’s payments safe!
• Complete kitchen, towels and bed linens, plus separate pool towels provided!

- Toilet paper
- Paper towels

Most vacation rentals do not, forcing you to buy and transport supplies (often much more than you need) while on vacation.

• We make 'extras' that only some guests will want or need optional, so that you only pay for what you will use, instead of building it into our nightly rates and charging ALL guests for them.

• During winter months, optional POOL and/or SPA HEATING is usually required at $27/day. We set our heaters warmer and run them longer than most area properties.
• We have a playpen, two strollers, and a high chair available for guest use (please bring your own baby blankets) $5/day.
• We have a large propane fired BBQ with appropriate tools available $5/day. (Others provide 'free' BBQ's but you must run out & buy propane! We provide 2 tanks, operating and a spare so you never run out!)
• Full-size Crib, Bikes, Scooters and other specialty items are easily pre-arranged for our guests at competitive rental rates, with delivery to & pick-up at the villa.

When you stay with us you will get an exclusive online Reservations Management web page on our system, where you can review reservation details, make payments, view and download custom maps, and get an electronic copy of our home manual.

This home is Kid Friendly & Children Welcome, Non smoking only, and with no stairs is suitable for elderly or infirm and wheelchair accessible.


For rates comparable to a Disney value resort room which sleeps 4, our guests receive an entire four-bed home that sleeps 8, has a well-equipped full kitchen, up-to-date electronics, full laundry, games room, and an enclosed private pool & spa with expanded deck in a large private yard, all located an easy 15-minute drive from Disney’s Magic Kingdom.

When you stay with us, you are staying ‘like an owner’ and paying what you would if you owned the property.

Check the reviews on our other two properties and you will see consistent praise, especially from ‘serial’ renters who have had a chance to experience what other vacation rental properties are like. Happy Oak Villa provides true value for guests who appreciate a relaxing, private, quality vacation rental experience.

Couples, Snowbirds and ‘Best Prices’

Due to the quality and privacy of our vacation homes, we have couples who book with us (many on honeymoon)! Most snowbirds simply looking to enjoy Florida weather will likely find other properties (often more economical because they are smaller, simpler, and not so close to the theme parks) more suitable, although we do receive a number of cherished snowbird guests each year.

We can not provide discounts for smaller groups or longer-term guests. Instead, we provide everyone with the best value we can. Unlike hotels, everyone receives our ‘best price’. We do not discriminate.

Feel free to contact us! We welcome your inquiry!
