Palm Court Retreat has not only been built to a high specification but we have also added $25,000 of builder’s upgrades. These include an extended fully screened decking area around the private swimming pool and spa, ceramic tile flooring throughout the open plan living areas, upgraded kitchen cabinets and luxury kitchen/bathroom fixtures and tiles.
We also know that the design, structure and layout of the property in itself are not the only things that matter. That is why we have also furnished our villa to a very high standard with items chosen outside the range of the usual furniture packages.
We have also provided good quality housewares so, for example, the kitchen is more fully equipped than in many rental homes and we have not compromised on the things that really matter like towels, bed linens and pillows which will ensure your added comfort during your stay.
Here is a summary of all the main accommodation together with photos ...
Swimming Pool & Spa
After a long day in the theme parks or a day shopping at one of the many designer malls you will look forward to returning to your own home to relax in style around the pool or watch the children play while you relax in the spa or enjoy a drink in the lanai. The swimming pool and spa can be illuminated at night as both have built in lights. Pool heating is also available when needed (recommended between October to March). There is a varied selection of luxury custom built deck furniture which you can use in the lanai or on the pool deck, whatever your preference. This includes a large table, 4 chairs, 2 sun loungers, 2 reclining chairs with footstools and 2 small drinks tables. We have also provided pool towels so you don't have to weigh yourself down with extra baggage when you travel.
Sliding doors from the family room lead onto a large covered lanai which looks out onto the pool deck. This is like an extra room and provides perfect shade during the day if you want to be outside but escape the sun's hot rays. The lanai is also a lovely setting for breakfast and it really comes into its own in the evenings when you can sit out with your family and friends and just relax and enjoy a cool drink or a glass of wine. To keep you comfortable on those hot summer nights we have also added a ceiling fan and the lanai has electric light too.
Kitchen and Breakfast Bar
The kitchen area is large with plenty of cupboards and work surfaces. There is every appliance you might need including a large fridge and freezer with an ice maker – perfect for chilling those long cool drinks! There is also an electric hob and oven, a microwave and a dishwasher. The kitchen is very well equipped with small electrical appliances including kettle, toaster, coffee maker, blender, can opener and even a waffle maker! There are plenty of pots, pans, cutlery and glasses including plastic glasses and plates for use in the lanai and patio areas. And we haven't forgotten the bottle opener and corkscrew for those cool bottles of beer or wine! And once you've decided who's going to be in charge of the kitchen those of you that have escaped that chore can keep an eye on things by relaxing on the high stools at the breakfast bar, perhaps having the first opportunity to sample the cooking! Or you can relax here and have a cool drink or a coffee perhaps?
This is a very spacious informal dining area with a lovely bay window which looks out onto the front garden.
There is a large round table and four comfortable chairs. A great place for breakfast. Or maybe even pizza later in the day if you decide to bring back a take out. Or just use the telephone to call free of charge to order a delivery from one of the many local restaurants.
This is a beautiful area just perfect for those more formal dining occasions. Maybe it's Christmas or Thanksgiving. Or you might just be celebrating a Birthday or an Anniversary and want to do something special. If so, then this is the spot to do it. The lovely dining room table is set for 6 but will comfortably seat 8 when required – just grab 2 extra chairs from the kitchen nook! And extra place mats and napkins are available in the kitchen.
