I have stayed in a few rental homes in the past and you could always tell it was a rental house. But not this house. You can tell that this house is more than a rental just by the care that John and his wife share with their guests. The pool was as big a hit with the kids as disney was. And you can't find a rental home much closer to Disney then this one. We had a great time and couldn't be happier with this wonderful house and it's owners. Thank you again for making your home our home!
Tropical Retreat is a perfect location from which to visit Disney and Universal. It offers quick easy drives to all parks, and other Kissimmee/Orlando destinations. The house is perfect, with a very efficient layout with plenty of room to spread out, lots of activities, and privacy for everyone. The pool was a wonderful treat, after a long day of park hopping. The house was clean, modern, and well stocked with all the amenities. We loved the extensive selection of games, DVD's, etc. WIFI was perfect. My teenagers loved the game room, and I had so much fun, I didn't mind getting consistently beaten at pool by my wife and kids. We would stay here again and again.
We had a great time the four days and three nights we visited. The owners were more than helpful during our stay. They really went above and beyond our expectations. We had everything we needed to make smores on the counter when we arrived. Thank you Janice! The house was clean and just as described. There was more than enough space for our family, 2 adults and 7 children. The river views are amazing. This house truly has everything you will need on your stay. We over packed a lot of amenities that are already there! The only thing I could have used were some toddler toys, although with all of the new surroundings I am not sure he would've played with them anyway! The kids (ages 13 years-18 months) all had something to do. Puzzles, kayaks, watching the birds and playing on the pier were all favorites. We were lucky enough to have the owners staying next door so we were given a wealth of information about the area and even a boat ride to catch some fish! We visited a trout hatchery nearby which the kids really enjoyed. We also took a trip over to Hershey's Chocolate world which was about 20-30 minutes away. The house is near a highway and a train track, but neither bothered us on our stay. In fact we kind of liked hearing the trains go by since we do have many where we live. It was very peaceful, we only wished we could have stayed longer. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family and if we return it will be for more than just a couple of days!
