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.

We are very sorry that the villa did not meet your expectations. This is contrary to the experience of the many clients who have posted positive reviews on this site. We have had an engineer inspect the air conditioning unit in the lounge. He reports that the cooling is working very efficiently. With an ambient air temperature of 29 degrees, the outlet cooled air is 14 degrees. However, some kind soul has attempted to manually move the automatic air deflector vane and has broken it. This is the cause of the annoying noise that you mention. This will be dealt with very soon. In the mean time, it can be silenced by not selecting the automatic option. It would have helped if you had contacted me during your stay and I could easily have guided you through the correct a/c operations.
