About Jane & Dean Booker
Hello, My Name is Jane. I am married to Dean. We have been together since 1997 and got married in 2010. We have two wonderful children called Ben and Max. We bought this house in January 2018 from the previous owners Andrea and Tony Bligh, like them we fell in love with the house and it's location. We have stayed 3 times in Andrea and Tony's villas, as they are family. Staying on the last couple of occasions in this villa, The Sequoia, so we were so pleased to take over the running of the villa. We hope to carry on where Andrea and Tony left off, ensuring a wonderful family home can be shared with so many people.

Husband's Birthday Trip
We had a wonderful stay a The Sequoia. My husband and I met friends there to celebrate his birthday. We only get to see our friends maybe once every few years and this was the perfect place for our reunion. We had plenty of room for everyone to have their room and privacy when they needed it. Also, we had great common areas for us all to hang out. We used the pool almost every day and cooked 100% of our meals at the villa. The kitchen had absolutely everything you would need to cook with. If you are planning on cooking your meals at home for your stay there is no need for extra utensils or cooking gear. We never did get around to using the grill but the pantry had all the grill utensils you would need. Great care has been taken to make you feel like you are at home when you stay here. There were plenty of towels for all to use. (there were 8 of us) I would recommend bringing toilet paper. paper towels and your own bath products. They do provide stuff to get you started but you will definitely need to get more. There is a Publix only a few miles up the road and they had everything we needed. We have all decided to want to try and make this an annual thing and stay in the house again. We had a great time and can't wait to go back! Great communication to the owner leading up to our stay.
Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, you may need to message us about your next trip as the week / seven day minimum restriction now applies. We would be happy for your group to stay again over a few days.
Yes plenty of towels and pool towels as we have children!!!
Amazing Villa - Wonderful owners - but management company...
Jane and Dean have got a wonderful villa. It is nestled in a corner of a lovely neighbourhood and it has EVERYTHING you could possibly need to make your stay all you could hope for. There is loads of space, the pool area is amazing, the bedrooms spacious and the living areas comfortable. As others have commented, the villa could do with a little bit of a refresh/redecoration and the pool is a bit rough if you are not careful (although this is obviously an "anti-slip" thing and is very effective!). However, I get the impression these things will happen very soon. Our one concern is the management company. When we arrived, although the villa was generally clean, there were things such as bits of paper, fluff, discarded tooth-floss under the sofas and behind the TV. It made us think the villa had not been cleaned properly. When we arrived, there was no recycling bin and the air hockey table was broken. The management company managed to get us a new bin in about a week and a half, but the table took over three weeks to fix (just needed a few screws to fix the legs, which had collapsed) and the communication with the management company was difficult as they often did not return our calls/emails.
So - to sum up. We would DEFINITELY recommend this villa and Dean and Jane. The villa is excellent and with a slightly more diligent management company, it would be outstanding.
So sorry about the management companies attitude.
Thank you for the feedback we have listened and changed the management and cleaning company. The new company are a local couple who live close by and we have heard good things from other owners. We just didn't want to jump from the frying pan to the fire.
We are looking to repaint the house interior soon. We have only had the house a year but we are looking to modernise as we go so your feedback is important.
The pool is non slip and common in Florida to be rough our children have also complained and asked for the next surface to be smoother.
Very Nice!We had a great time!
The owners were great!
Glad you had a nice time and thank you for the review.
Left this morning after two weeks. Great communication with Jane and villa was as described. For 12 of us enough space and pool area was great used everyday.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. thank you for the feedback.
The property was clean a little dated but very nice. The pool was extremely hot like jumping into a hot bath but the weather in June is hot so that you expect it to be on the warm side.
Sorry about the hot pool, the management company should have been able to lower the temperature if you would have liked.
Great time with Family.
So glad you had a great time, you and your family.
