My family and I stayed at the condo for a week while visiting Disney World. We had stayed at the resorts on Disney before and I wanted to see how staying off the resort was. There are advantages to both, but getting away from Disney at night was a nice change.
First off, the condo is in a very convenient location. It took us about 20-25 minutes to get from the condo to the parking areas at the parks. I worried about traffic to the parks since we were staying off the resort area, but the drive was surprising easy and traffic was not bad at all.
The condo was excellent and had everything we needed. The condo was very clean and well maintained. It was nicely decorated and grounds /exterior were well maintained as well. The two bedrooms worked perfect for us and our two kids (ages 2 & 5). The kitchen had plenty of cooking dishes which was great to cook a real meal instead just eating all the the Park food.
I think the best feature was the unit location. The unit was on the corner on the ground floor which made it convenient to parking area and the pool! The pool was just a few steps outside the patio door! We would wake up in the mornings and enjoy the pool before heading to the Parks in the afternoon and evening. We loved that you didn't have to walk miles to get the pool, especially with small kids. The pool area has a kiddie pool which our 2 year old loved! There was also a larger pool that was relaxing as well. The pools were not crowded at all and you could easily get a pool chair and relax in between your dip in the pool.
Lastly, the owner, Valerie, was very nice and communication was great with her. Even though a vacation rental company managed the property for her, it was nice to actually talk with the owner. Valerie answered any questions we had and checked to see if we needed anything before we arrived. She was awesome and we really appreciate her personal communication.
Overall, we had an awesome vacation and the condo was nice to come back to in the evenings and "take a break" from Disney World. We are already looking forward to our next Disney vacation and will definitely consider renting the condo again.
