We stayed here for two weeks in November as an anniversary trip to Orlando. We were very pleased with this condo! This was our 5th time in Orlando (technically kissimmee) and this has been our favorite place to stay thus far.. we used to stay in regular hotel rooms.. but with condos you get most of the luxuries of a hotel but so much more space. I'd say the only down side to staying in a condo is you don't get maid service each day but that's ok! we stayed two weeks so we did get maid service once during our stay.
the condo has every thing you need! Big refrigerator, stove, microwave, pots, pans, glasses, silverware, plates bowl, cookie sheets, etc. being able to make some meals during our stay saved lots of money!
The pools were nice and clean, the hot tub was nice except the depth of of it was kinda weird it was sort of hard to sit comfortably in it to relax. but that was ok because there is always the nice big jetted tub in the master bathroom of your room! which we made use of every day! the bathrooms are gorgeous in this place, granite counter tops, separate shower and tub. there is a convenient washer and dryer right outside the room that you share with one other room. but during our stay we were the only ones who used it and it's full size which means you can pack light and rewash! it was also nice to wash all our clothes there pack them clean before flying home and just be able to get home and unpack CLEAN clothes instead of having a mountain of laundry to do
It is so spacious you could sleep 6 people in this place.. we actually had soem friends come stay one night with us and the front desk was totally fine with us.. since we weren't using the other room they had their own privacy and bathroom! they were so impressed that after leaving the switched their reservations at disney resort hotel to stay here instead for an upcoming vacation they were going to be having the following month. you can't beat the value and price! everything is up kept well and clean... very close to irlo bronson which is a main street and they have every restaurant you could ever imagine on that street. we went to cracker barrel, macaroni grill, perkins, etc . there are lots of gift shops to bring back souvenirs from friends and family and it's much cheaper then buying inside the parks. It's really close to a cute little attraction called old town it's free to get in and theirs rides and shops and restaurants to eat at inside. Not to far from Disney and not to far from universal either! prior visits we've stayed over by seaworld off of I drive which is a nice area as well but I would still rather stay here just because it's so close to everything and theres more dining options right in the immediate area.. We've also stayed at orbit one vacation villas which are similar condos and we liked these just a smidgen more! I would stay at either or depending on who had he best deal at the time.
the front desk lady signed us up for "time share tour" she wasnt pesky about it but did follow up to make sure we did it ;) and we did and it was totally worth the $100! I'd do it again in a heart beat. I probably wouldn't if our time was limited but we had two weeks... so we figured why not waste a morning/afternoon and make $100! lol
things you will need to bring:
shampoo, conditioner, lotion, body wash
Laundry soap and fabric softener
trash bags, dish soap and dishwasher detergent is supplied
I'm sure I'm leaving out lots of other little details but basically this is a great find and I'd definitely stay here again and recommend it! :D
