This villa had the best location and service I've ever experienced. It was extremely clean and comfortable to be in. Any questions or concerns I had were answered quickly and things were done in a timely manner! Being here made my vacation much more worth while being that I travel with my elderly parents who are handicapped it was extremely easy to maneuver them in the home. I highly recommend to anyone traveling with elderly parents or children. Thank you to the owner for this extraordinary experience. I've already recommended family and friends.
My family and I stayed at Secret Key Villa in Kissimme FL for a week while we visited Disney World and local attractions. The property is located in an elegant and secure gated community. The house was great - clean, comfortable, and spacious for the 6 of us. True to photos as advertised. We loved the clean, private, screened back patio and swimming pool. The connected spa was nice as well, although not heated as we expected. Owner is friendly and responsive to communication. Everything was very nice, we hated to leave. We would definitely stay again!
Villa was situated in emerald island which is so close to Disney. If you use the sherbeth road entrance you can be at animal kingdom in just over 10 minutes. The house had everything you needed and we all loved the pool and spa especially on those hot afternoons Plenty of room throughout the villa. I would happily return.
Traveled to Orlando to bring the grandkids to Disney. The house was in a great location as far as getting to Disney and restaurants. The community it was in was very nice. The community building had a gym, heated pool, a place to eat and have cocktails. The house was just as the photos show. It was a little dated and had a musty smell when you first entered. The pool had a safety gate that kept the kids away from the water. It was an alright place for the price.
The house is exactly as advertised. We stayed for 5 nights and spent 2 at Disney World and one at Universal Studios. Both were very easy to get to and there are lots of shops and restaurants nearby if you are not venturing out.
For our days off, the house was perfect to relax in. The kitchen was well stocked and everything was clean. The resort itself is also great -- it has a nice pool with a small tiki bar serving cocktails and a small food menu. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a nature trail and playgrounds for the kids as well.
We had an issue with the pool heat when we arrived. I e-mailed the owner the next day and someone was there within an hour to fix it. It didn't really heat up until sometime the next day which was a bummer but when it did heat up in was great! You'll definitely want pool heat in February. The hot tub didn't get hot at all. The women at the front desk said that it wasn't supposed to. That sounded weird to me.
The beds were a little firm for my liking and the pillows aren't the greatest. If luxurious linens and mattresses are a must for you than you may be disappointed. They were acceptable, however, and the perks of having a whole house and pool area to relax in far outweighed the bed situation, which again, is not terrible. The couches were very soft and comfortable and most nights I nodded off in front of in the living room.
There are plenty of towels but they are on the smaller size. You may want to bring a pool towel if you like to wrap up in one after you get out of the water.
There was soap to wash your hands and toilet paper. All the trash cans had a trash bag in it. We didn't run out of any of these items so I am not sure if they are replaced by the resort or not. As far as shampoo, conditioner, laundry detergent, dish soap -- you'll need to get those. There are plenty of grocery stores nearby and the Walgreens sells travel sizes of toiletries.
We were two adults and two children. Technically there was space for another 4 to sleep but that would have been quite crowded. The house was really the perfect size for the 4 of us.
If you are hitting the theme parks, you are going to be VERY tired. You'll be glad for the extra room, I can't imagine doing this trip in a hotel.
This property was just perfect for me and my wife. The place was just beautiful...a perfect setting for our 19th year anniversary. We only had a very minor issue when we arrived but it was quickly resolved by the maintenance company. The furnishing and decorating were elegant and tasteful. It made us feel at home! The kitchen was very, very well-stocked. I couldn't think of a single thing that wasn't already there. Thank you for allowing us into your home. We had a fabulous time (in spite of a rare cold Florida weather). A highly recommended vacation rental, we will definitely rent this home again.
We stayed on our recent trip to Disney and everything was excellent. Booking was simple and the owner was very good at communicating. The house was beautiful and perfect size for our extended family. The pool was perfect for small children and nice and warm. Our only issue was with the signal strength on certain channels of the bedroom TV's, but I can't fault the owner for that.
The Villa Management Company at the Resort was also top notch an super responsive to a few items we had requested.
Everything was close, Disney, Shopping, Good Food.
