“good but dated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2007

For two couples and a baby this villa was very spacious with two good size bedroom and one master bedroom with an onsuite there was plenty of room to spread out.
Altough the decor was very dated (i would say late 80's) it was clean and comfortable upon our arival. the kitchen is well enough equipd with washer and tumble dryer and the washing power is supplied( although i would buy your own to be on the safe side!) I found the beds to be adequate but the other members of my party found them to be very uncomfortable
very quiet around the pool and play area although the club house was alittle lacking. You do need a car as unless you know the shortcuts and back ways into the disney area it can take sometime.
An enjoyable stay good for families.

  • Liked — the spaciousness of the villa
  • Disliked — having to wash your own towels and the bed being a bit uncomfortable

we searched online for a private owners villa at laguna bay. we found this guy from scotland who owns and rents villas there. his website gives true representations of what you get for real.......! we are booked with him again for 2008. he has a property management company that deals with any on site matters. a very nice scotsman and american we say. his website is alandowflorida.co.uk for full details. his service is personal and not the rent -a-lot type villas you get from tour operator condos and villas.

  • Liked — fully furnished with all mod cons...
  • Disliked — having to come home to england..........

Clean, spacious, and worry free. Would definitely use them again. The furniture in the living room was a bit outdated, but other than that it was great. I believe they advertise a heated community pool, but the pool must have been set at a low temp because it was cold. Plenty of room though. We had beds to spare. I paid in the mid $500 for a 2 Bdrm for 5 nights which was excellent for easter weekend. The two little toddlers slept on the floor in our room (they were too scared to sleep alone in a new place), but the two oldest enjoyed having a room with a TV all to themselves. I never actually met the management for the property since the keys were in a lock box outside the condo door. We emailed and called on cell phone if we needed anything. The management seemed helpful though when I called them on the phone. I would definitely recommend this for family's staying there (Disney maingate about 2 miles away.)

  • Liked — Plenty of space
  • Disliked — No internet and dated furniture

The villas states that it's close (5-10 minutes from Disney & Universal) but it's really not! Due to limited seating in our vehicle some of us (just once) had to take a taxi from Universal cost $40 plus tip. Then we saw that World Wide Sports (a Disney resort )was close to the villa (off 192) so we took the free disney transportation from Magic to the resort and took a taxi to the villa but still came out to $30 plus tip!!! NOT CLOSE as they state.
The villas are all privately owned and stocked with old towels (not dirty but stained), cheap utensils, a fridge that has an ice maker unit but doesn't work and very old mattresses. The mattresses sunk in the middle on the master bedroom and in the bedroom with the two twin beds, one of the beds actually looks like a V when someone slept in it (not comfortable at all). The mattress in the pullout in the living room was a little lop-sided so to fix it we took the fitted sheet off & come to find HUGE MULTIPLE STAINS all over the mattress!!
The amenities were nice: heated pool (outside), jacuzzi, tennis and sauna were available until 11pm which was a plus because we were able to use them after spending a day at the parks.
I have been to Florida multiple times & have stayed in everything from a Best Western on International Drive, Disney's Animal Resort, Grand Floridian in Disney, Hard Rock in Universal,Westgate, multiple villas and also rented homes and have to say the this room was the worst we've stayed in. All sis of use say the same thing: We will not be repeat guests to these villas.

  • Liked — the late hours (11pm) the amenities were open till
  • Disliked — Needs upkeep and needs to be cleaner
  • Tips/Secrets — With the wide selection of other places I suggest you look elsewhere
