Florida Delight Details
Upon entering Florida Delight you will arrive at the first of two sitting areas found in the downstairs level of the villa. It is a large, welcoming lounge area, beautifully laid out with two leather three- seater sofas and an armchair, coffee table and lamps. We have recently installed a TV with Netflix in the lounge following a request from a former guest. We have already had feedback that this television is proving useful for when families with children are renting the villa so that they can relax and watch cartoons or a film of their choice in the lounge whilst the larger 65 inch TV in the living area is being used for watching sport!
A bar area just off the lounge is convenient for fixing snacks, pouring drinks and having everything nicely to hand. It is here that you will find the board games and packs of cards, as well as various local attraction leaflets and booklets. There is a black leather book here in which we welcome any comments and reviews from guests staying in the villa. In the top cupboard on the right you will see a number of reading books left by previous guests. Please feel free to help yourself or leave a book that you may have finished reading whilst on your holiday. Future guests will always appreciate them. If you are in the mood for a board game or cards the lounge has a circular table and four chairs which is perfect for playing for a small number of people otherwise there is a very large table in the dining area for the game nights for the whole family.
A downstairs toilet is situated on the ground floor.
FAMILY LIVING ROOM
From the lounge situated at the front of the villa you will wander through into the wonderfully spacious open kitchen, dining and family living area.
Large patio doors give the family living room direct access and views onto the pool area and also bring in a lot of natural light.
The family living room overlooks the outside pool area and is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a film on the large 65 inch 4K TV which has superb picture quality and is fantastic for sports fans or watching a good film. We have all the major US, UK and European networks as well as Netflix available on any of the nine televisions available throughout the villa.
Just sink into the large, luxurious sectional seating area for laying back and relaxing.
We have provided two different telephone lines for your convenience. The black phones are for free local calls within the US. There is also a red phone located in the family living area which is for free calls to many countries on both landlines and mobiles.
The indoor dining table, with leather chairs, comfortably seats up to 12 people and is a real show-piece. It has great views overlooking the pool area, but being indoors the air-conditioning ensures a cool, comfortable temperature for when you want it, or for the occasions when you want a more formal meal together. It is the perfect place to dine when you want a change from eating al fresco. Situated next to the kitchen it makes preparing and serving meals easy and very convenient but with the installation of very attractive light fittings above the table you can dim or brighten the lighting according to the mood and ambience you wish to create during mealtime.
For a casual bite to eat or a coffee there are four bar stools at the breakfast bar to sit, chat and enjoy a leisurely snack. There is also the smaller table and four chairs in the front lounge. There is a high chair available in the villa for families with a young child with them.
Florida is of course all about outside living and out on the patio next to the pool there are two dining areas at which you can choose to eat. One is located under the patio canopy and is ideal for mealtimes in the evening or when you want shade from the sun during the daytime. On the far side of the pool decking is another dining table and chairs as well as an umbrella for when you want to keep the sun off. This is a favourite spot for enjoying breakfast and watching the birds and squirrels in the trees. There is flexibility and space for table and chair movement on the patio depending on the size of your group and where you want to sit. There is also a spare table under the canopy on which are stored the cushions overnight. We have installed additional privacy screening so that you can enjoy the best of outside living in private. The whole of the pool decked area has solar lighting so that you can enjoy being out by the pool in the evenings either for a meal, drinks or a swim. The floodlighting in the pool always helps create a lovely ambience too.
With the luxury of space, ample work surfaces in granite, quality appliances and equipment, the kitchen offers everything you need to make home cooking and entertainment a pleasure. Your own state of the art kitchen for when you want to have a change and “eat in”. This kitchen is superbly equipped with every modern convenience, including an American style fridge/freezer and ice machine, a small additional fridge which is great for cooling beers or wine, a large modern oven, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, blender, electric kettle and a waffle maker. There is even an Instant Pot which is an electronic/computerised pressure cooker or slow cooker which is fabulous for when you want to create a family meal within a short period of time or get a meal into the slow cooker before you head out for a busy day in the parks so that you can come home to a hot meal at the end of the day. There is all the crockery, cutlery and cookware you could possibly need. There is also a complete second set of stylish, quality plastic crockery and glasses (a necessity for your safety) to use in the pool area. As a keen cook myself, I do try to ensure that the villa is home from home when it comes to what is in the kitchen.
A large washing machine, separate tumble drier, iron and ironing board are located on the vast landing area upstairs. These make the holiday so much easier knowing that you can keep up with any washing that you may have as well as not having to bring quite so many clothes with you, which helps free up valuable space in your suitcases to take back any new purchases that you make from the numerous shopping malls.
A large games room complete with pool table, air hockey, electronic darts and table football, a wall mounted 40“ Samsung HD TV and Bluetooth sound bar. With two raised bar stools and table there is a welcome spot for sitting and enjoying a drink while watching all the fun.
