This was our first time renting a private home for a vacation, so we were a little nervous, but as soon as we walked in, our anxiety disappeared. This home is perfect; I cannot stop staying that! It looks exactly like the pictures. It's spotless, there is tons of space (especially for our little family of 3) and the community is so quiet and peaceful. This is what vacation is supposed to be like! Not crammed into a little hotel room where everyone is on top of each other! I loved the fact that I could get up in the morning, make a cup of tea, and read for an hour in the peace and quiet until my daughter got up. Then she could come down and watch the huge TV (there are also TVs in all the bedrooms) while we waited for my husband to wake up - it was perfect!
The community is right off of 192, but it's far enough off the main road that there is no noise or traffic congestion. By the roads, it's probably 4-5 miles from Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom; it took us about 15 minutes to get there because of stoplights, but there really was no bad traffic. There are plenty of shops and restaurants along 192 in the opposite direction of Disney, so you don't have to go far for something to eat. We did venture out to International Drive one afternoon and were so glad we didn't end up staying in that mess!
If you like to swim, the community pool is wonderful! There are plenty of chairs, and tables with umbreallas, and both times that my daughter and I went over, we practically had the pool to ourselves. One day there was an older couple in there just standing and cooling off, and the other day there were 2 kids about my daughter's age (with Grandma watching).
If we ever get back to Disney, we will definitely be renting this home again! I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone planning a Disney vacation!
