In my opinion, the perfect vacation is to enjoy when you are out and having fun and to enjoy and relax when you are back to where you stay.. It was our perfect vacation.

Overall, our stay at the Vilu Reef was ok.
The positive: the owner, Dave, was extremely kind and helpful, as were the people from the property management; the house was clean and spacious; there was a Walmart nearby that had everything we needed for our stay; the neighborhood was quiet.
The negative: The bed in the master bedroom had major body impressions and was too soft for my liking; the house could have been better stocked (no pancake griddle, no extra toilet paper or kitchen trash bags); the Walmart was a zoo at times at there were no other stores within a 5 minute drive.
We went to Orlando to enjoy the theme parks with our 5 children ranging in ages from 3 to 16. We knew the house wasn't as close to the theme parks as we would have liked, but chose it for the price and space. We thought we would spend more time at the house to unwind and relax. The time we did spend there was relaxing. However, we didn't spend as much time at the house as we had planned, due to the lengthy travel times to and from the parks (15-20min from Disney). If we had it to do over again we would choose something closer to the theme parks.
Our villa is positioned conveniently for Disney Animal Kingdom. The Disney complex is large and no matter where you stay some of their parks will be a long distance. We are more convenient for the gulf beaches and Busch Gardens than some villas. There are other stores close to us. Sweetbay is actually walking distance and closer than Walmart. If you drive, there is a Publix within 5 minutes just on 192. I have noted your comments regarding the master bed but as to softness this is obviously a personal thing. Pancakes can be cooked in the frying pan. We provide enough essentials to start your holiday off along with a welcome pack of food and drink.

The villa is in an excellent location - close to everything you need! It is a gorgeous property and extremely clean, well set out and perfect for a group of people or a family. A personal highlight was sitting by the pool in the evening, overlooking the sunset on the lake. The service was good too - arrive and collect the keys and the person from the management company gave us great hints about the area etc. There is nothing that I would change about this rental, I would definitely visit again and I cannot recommend it enough.
