About Gill Tautz

My name is Gill and I currently live in Rayleigh, Essex in the UK, having grown up in Chelmsford. Steve and I have been married since 1993 and have one grown up son. We enjoy dinner parties with friends, cycling, sailing, cinema and spending our vacation time in Florida.

Gill Tautz purchased this villa in 2004

Why Gill Tautz chose Glenbrook Resort

We have owned Hidden Spring Villa from it being absolutely brand new in 2004. We have had quite a few family vacations to the area and loved the fact that the Glenbrook is resort is so peaceful, yet it's minutes from the theme parks. We have taken refurbishing and improving our vacation home very seriously, and many of our returning guests say it's looking fresher and newer than it did over 10 years ago!

What makes this villa unique

Glenbrook is a very peaceful, friendly resort - we now have many villa-owner friends on site, who really make it for us when we're there. The madness of Orlando is only minutes away, as is the stunning Lake Louisa State Park and the walking and cycling trail in and around Clermont. It's so near to an abundance of restaurants, supermarkets and the shopping outlets. We absolutely love the house - it's so spacious. All the rooms have wonderfully high ceilings, the bedrooms and bathrooms are huge, and we have one of the biggest pools and pool decks on the resort. We love being there, and making our vacation home special.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This villa is really well equipped and had everything we needed. The information pack Gill provided was very useful to have in advance, and we quickly got used to the entry system and alarm panel. The villa was spotless when we arrived, towels out ready, beds made up, etc. We had 2 cars between us, and they could both fit on the drive without any issues. The huge washing machine and tumble dryer in the utility room were great (and they were more efficient than my own machines in the UK!). The dishwasher saved a lot of time too, and the kitchen was well stocked with glasses, crockery, cutlery and utensils. There was plenty of room outside around the pool area, and the additional pool towels were a great touch. The 'shortcut' to Disney Gill told us about saved a lot of time. The villa was very well maintained, everything worked, and any questions we had were answered promptly. I would happily recommend the villa to a friend or family member.

Awful Experience

  • 1 of 5

I would not recommend stay at this property!

The owners of the property should agree as they were notified of all of this. The property was not properly cleaned as there was a horrid smell of urine in the upstairs bathroom. We had to clean the bathroom ourselves. The ac was preset from the UK and it was very stuffy and hot inside. We had to wait two days for the temperature to be lowered in the UK after notifying the owners. Two of the upstairs bedrooms have no circulation of air as they have no ceiling fans.

Although you are quoted a price that includes cleaning of the property before and after your stay the owners then proceed to deduct 50% of your security deposit as an additional cleaning fee saying the place is left dirty when in actual truth in fact we arrived and found the place dirty. I believe it is a way to distort the true price being charged to rent the property so they advertise a low price and then deduct all or most of the security deposit to make more money.

Owner's Response: I am very troubled by your claims. I have e-mailed you privately to address the issues you have raised; it saddens me that you do not wish to enter into any sort dialogue to fully discuss. I apologised for the problem with one of the bathrooms – our MC would have come round straight away if you had called them. I have offered to forward on to you the photographs taken & sent to me after your departure and the bill for the additional cleaning charge, but you haven’t taken up this offer. We have also had to compensate the guests checking in after you – because of your very late departure, the cleaners had not finished when they arrived at the contractual time of 4pm. I have only deducted the extra expenses I have incurred as a result of your actions and offered to show you proof & photographic evidence of these; I am extremely upset at the inference of some sort of scam. In 10 years of renting we have never been charged double for clean due to the amount of extra work involved, nor have we ever had a complaint about the cleanliness of the house – quite the opposite, in fact. This situation leaves me with a very heavy heart.

Great family house for visiting Disney

  • 5 of 5

This is a real family home from home with very comfortable furnishings and living accommodation. It is very spacious and therefore has plenty of room for large families. The pool area adds another dimension and a great place to relax after a day at the Disney Resorts which are only 10 to 15 minutes away. Journeys into the resorts were very easy as was access to the property from the Interstates. We had a great family holiday and would have no hesitation in booking again when we return to Orlando.

Fantastic House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks in this fantastic house.

The house is very well equipped and was beautifully clean and ready for us when we arrived.

There are five big bedrooms with comfortable beds, 2 of which are master suites so it is excellent for two familys sharing.The bedrooms all have televisions and a couple have games consoles.

The lounge areas are bright and airy with plenty of space for relaxing and eating. The family lounge has a very large television and is also equipped with useful books about the area.

The house has a lovely big pool with a well equipped large area for sunbathing and al fresco eating. There is also a great hot tub for relaxing in with a glass of wine after a day in the parks.

The house is situated within an short easy drive of all the parks and within 5 minutes of huge supermarkets.

The owner Gill has a huge wealth of knowledge about the area and the parks and she gave us an enormous amount of useful information and help before our holiday.

We had a fantastic time and are looking forward to re booking this house for our next Florida trip.
