Meet The Owner 

Hello! We're Chris and Louise and we've owned Autumn Glen since purchasing the villa in June 2011.

We were on a holiday to Orlando (Louise's first time to the USA, Chris's twentieth!) and had planned a relaxing fortnight. However, Chris came back one evening to reveal he'd made an offer on a villa and the rest is history...  We then set about furnishing and decorating it and making our little piece of America comfortable for our European guests in the last week of our holiday, and Chris designed and built this website on the flight home!

Chris & Louise with Mickey

We live in Manchester, England with our two dogs, Storm (our Siberian Husky) and Trixie (our naughty Border Collie).

A chance to escape the rainy weather is always welcome although work isn't quite so understanding... Louise recently quit the rat-race to open a dog biscuit bakery, and Chris works freelance as a Television Cameraman. Chris has travelled the world filming commercials, dramas and documentaries and has been on-screen in Yvette Fielding's cult show 'Most Haunted' from Season 11 to 14.

In 2007 Chris diversified into property building up a formidable portfolio: A three bedroomed apartment in Salford Quays (just round the corner from the new BBC studios), two apartments in New York (close to Niagara Falls) and 5 detached houses in Michigan. Autumn Glen is the first venture into short term rentals and we hope you like it...

Unlike other holiday rentals, we've not simply bought a furnished package. We've selected everything ourselves and furnished it to a very high quality; from the Italian imported granite breakfast bar to the beach towels! All the photos around the villa were taken by Chris on our travels to Florida, and each photograph is titled should you want to visit the area while you're there!

We hope you choose to stay at Autumn Glen and if you have any suggestions or requests, please don't hesitate to let us know personally.
