Our family of 6, 4 adults and 2 kids, just got back from our first trip to Orlando. This home was perfect. Spacious, well appointed and very comfortable. It was close to all amenities and an easy jump off point for all our sightseeing.
It was a home away from home. Would highly recommend it. Pool, wifi, tvs in bedrooms, laundry and ample space allowed all of us to enjoy our vacation. The games room in the garage is a great touch.
I rented the house sight unseen and relied on reviews. We found the house to better than advertised. A modern fully functional rental property. Close to all needed shopping and within reasonable commute distance to all parks and attractions.
Plenty of space for 4 adults and 4 kids. The house was very clean and all furniture was comfortable.
The private heated pool, gated community and resort club house definitely helped jet lagged parents relax without having to really worry about the kids much. If you children are too young to swim...the house pool has a full child safety fence and the entire pool patio is covered by a bug proof enclosure.
I was extremely happy with all aspects of the house abd definitely give the whole experience and value a five star rating.
The house was hugh; big enough for 6 adults & 3 little ones:)
The pool was clean, warm & just perfect for a small group.
The bathrooms do need some updates( plugs wouldn't hold & somewhat dated); but we were very pleased overall.
This was our first time of renting a house for our vacation travels; and it was the perfect decision. This emaculate, 1-story home has an open-floor plan & it is filled with plenty of natural light. I especially liked the fact that the home is located in a clean, quiet, gated community. Since the house sleeps 10 people comfortably, the children enjoyed having their own bed rooms, as well as the pool which was just outside the patio door. (There are several safety features, plus an alarm to let a parent know if the patio door is opened, which I personally loved). It was a pleasant surprise to find many pool towels on hand as well. As an adult, I enjoyed all the conveniences of living at home. The large kitchen/dining areas/food pantry was especially helpful, & it also helped in keeping food expenses down. Not only did the washer/dryer also make our stay convenient, it helped keep our flight expenses down by allowing us to pack lightly. For families that prefer to eat out, there are a huge variety of restaurants within minutes away, as well as several grocery stores and conveniences stores, not to mention the nearby mall. All of the major attractions were app 15-20 minutes away ( depending on traffic), and we were app. 5 minutes from I-4. Should we return to Fla., I would definitely consider this home again.
The house was very clean just as it was pictured. It was close to the parks and Publix which was also very convenient. The neighborhood was very quiet, we had a great time and the house was perfect for our family.
A home from home. There were 7 of us and we had ample space. Clean, tidy villa, lovely decor, comfortable beds. Cool boxes and beach chairs available which we hadn't factored in and we used them. Kids enjoyed it. Pool lovely, plenty of deck chairs and sun beds. Would def revisit.
We were late arriving due to technical difficulties with the airline. We emailed the villa owners to let them know, and were surprised to find phone messages waiting when we arrived to let us know they had received the email and to make sure we were ok.
Our only issues (in the interest of honestly, but it really is minor in our books!) were: we found the phone line not working when we arrived (a quick contact to the villa management team had this sorted in less than 24 hours :)), and we did have a couple of nights of noisy neighbours (not the villa owner's fault and the community gate house had a word with them about it).
On the good: the Villa was really clean when we arrived, and was a superb size, it was easily able to accommodate my partner and I, our 2 teenage kids, my sister and my mother each in separate bedrooms. The pool was a welcome relief from the August heat - the kids were in it almost every evening. While the kitchen, lounge and dining areas were well equipped and nicely laid out. The kids even made use of the pool and Foosball tables in the games room.
In terms of local stores for self catering, we were 5-10 mins drive from Walgreens and a massive Walmart which made it easy for us to procure snacks, and food for our day trips and evenings in.
Access to Disney and Universal was pretty straightforward - the I4 junctions for the villa tended to get a bit jammed up with congestion in the rush hour periods, but sticking to the toll roads with a SunPass made it pretty easy to bypass most of that and get to/from the villa and the parks. We were closer to the Disney parks (about 25 mins) than Universal (about 35-40 mins) but to be honest, the drives to/from weren't too bad.
All in all though we found this villa to be absolutely brilliant, and I, and my family, have no issue with recommending it to others!
