“Best Christmas ever” Family of 4 with children 11 and 14 renter this house for Christmas and New Year 2015. We had a great stay. We found the place very safe - it was a locked community with very nice staff in the gate. The house was great. 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. One of the room was a "Frozen" room that my 11 year just loved. The swimming pool was nice - it did not have lights in it, so it was hard to se anything during the nights - but other ways from that it was GREAT!!!
The club house was also great. We got a schedule plan for the hole time we were there, and it was activities every day for the kids. We love the Christmas party in the club house.
The house has no keys, just a door code, and that was great. You don't have to worry about any keys.
The game room was fun. A soccer game and a pool table that the whole family loved.
It was a washer and dryer in the game room who we used a lot. We did not need to bring so many clothes from home because we could wash it, and we had more space in the luggage to SHOP :)
The house is located about 30 minutes from the Disney Parks and it was very easy to find the direction. It was located about 20 minutes from Kissimmee who is really worth a visit on Saturday night. It has a great parade with old cars and you can see the cars before the parade. There is also a fun park in Kissimmee who is worth a visit - Fun Spot.
The owner of the house was great. We called them a couple go times during our stay, and they were really helpful to us.
Thank you for a great stay - we will recommend this to families with kids, and there is enough space for 2 families traveling together in the house.
“Great vacation” Perfect sized house for our family vacation! Very clean upon arrival, we were even welcomed by a family of sand hill cranes! There were plenty of towels, face clothes, etc that we needed and the bedrooms were very decent sizes. Travelling with our infant was a breeze as we did not need to worry about a play pen, high chair or umbrella stroller as it was all available for us. Not sure about all of the beds but the main master was comfortable, the double bed is pretty noisy/seems old and could be replaced. All in all a great stay and would definitely consider renting again in the future.
“Home away from home” First impression of the villa was WOW. Amazing to say the least, you have everything you need and the comfort of your own home. The location is spot on supermarket and restaurants less than 5 minutes away(driving), 10-15 minutes to Disney and 25 minutes to International Drive. The games room is excellent for relaxing and fun when having a break from the parks and the pool/spa was excellent for young ang old alike. The pool was used by adults and kids in the morning most days and was warm with the pool heat, the spa was a welcoming place in the evening after walking round the parks. The owners are easy to contact and are extremely helpful. We have been to Orlando every year for the past 8 years and this was the first time in a villa(usually stay on International Drive in a hotel) and we we not disappointed at all will definitely be back and will certainly use this villa as our first choice for accommodation.
“Fantastic house and resort” We stayed in the house for two weeks in October/November and had a brilliant time. The house was fantastic and had everything we needed. It was clean, comfortable and well equipped and maintained. The new pillow top beds were very comfortable.
Although the weather was a bit colder following the hurricane, we were still able to spend some time in the pool, which was within easy walking distance from the house. We read in some reviews that the pool was not clean, well that was not our experience. Whilst in the gym early most mornings, we saw that the pool and surrounding areas were being cleaned.
We can wholeheartedly recommend the house and resort and would have no hesitation staying in the house again. Many thanks to the owners for their quick responses to our questions and the detailed instructions.
NB: the new children play area is very cool.
“Perfect retreat at the end of a busy day!” Having chosen this property as it was the only one i found that did not back onto a whole square of identical properties, i was not disappointed. The nature preserve at the rear is just a lovely backdrop to what is a fantastic place to relax at the end of a tiring day in the parks of Orlando. The house is in an excellent location, very well equipped but also very homely and comfortable. To be honest the house was so fab, it changed the nature of our stay, we intended just using it as a place to get our heads down but in the end, it turned into the star turn of the whole holiday, the kids on a few occasions actually preferring to stay home than go to a theme park! Go figure!! We loved the alligator and seeing where he popped up each morning to say hi, we loved the pool and the hot tub, the pool table in the garage, everything really!! One unexpected highlight was the kids being able to go trick or treating around the neighbourhood on Halloween; they were made to feel so welcome by the local residents and that added a whole new dimension to our American experience. This was without doubt a much needed and very much enjoyed family holiday and we can't wait to return......but we probably won't bother with the Disney tickets next time!!!!!!!
“Relaxing & Beautiful” Spring break vaca with the family. Very nice resort. Enjoyed the pools the most. Scenery and landscaping was awesome too. Room was decadent and luxurious. Loved it. Beds were just ok though. They could use an update/upgrade. And free WiFi signal was a little weak, but worked. Otherwise, the best value we have ever had. Very nice. We'll probably be returning.
