Thank you for a wonderful place to escape the craziness of Disney over the holidays! Our group of six adults had plenty of room to spread out and find privacy. My adult (18, 20, 30) children loved the pool!! It was nice that there were plenty of beach towels available. The villa was well maintained, clean and nicely decorated.
The villa would easily accommodate a larger group and there were plenty of sheets and blankets for making up hide-a-beds.
The kitchen was adequately stocked, but if we return, I will know to bring a few of my own favorite tools (sharp paring knife, whisk, extra kitchen towels).
In addition to the villa being just right, the resort management offered great Southern hospitality.
We had a lovely time and if we make a return Orlando trip we will definitely want to stay here.
My husband and two daughters, 11 & 7, stayed at the Donnely house this past October and we absolutely loved it! It was the perfect size, clean, had everything we needed and the girls LOVED having their own pool. The washer and dryer was so nice to have because we didn't have to pack as much. We visited all 4 of the Disney parks while we were there and it was so nice to be able to come back "home" (only 10 min drive from all parks) to have lunch, take a dip or just rest, before heading back to the parks for round two. There is a local grocery store nearby so we stocked up on groceries and saved a ton of money eating at home instead of at the parks or in restaurants. I would reccommend this house to any family looking to stay off the Disney campus as it offers privacy and all the comforts of home. We loved not having to go back and cram into a one room hotel room after a long day at the parks. We could all spread out and relax in our own ways. Thanks again Donnely house and we will see you this Oct. Yep, we are back again this year too!
Excellent stay in the Donnelly House! If you are looking for a comfortable, family friendly home close to Disney World then you will enjoy the house as much as we did. The house has everything you need for a great stay. Plenty to room to relax and privacy if you are an extended family. In addition to being close to the parks, the house is near tons of shopping and every restuarant you can think of. When we need down time from the parks our family really loves the pool . We really recommend this property! Thanks Joan and Terry!
We were a family of 7 including my mother of 84, our 3 kids of 28, 22 and 9, and my son's girlfriend, they got engaged on new years, we really had a good time in this Beautiful Home!! My husband and my kids enjoy the pool. Wonderful vacation place for the whole family!!
The pictures surely display the home as we found it. It is very close to the Disney Parks and within a 25 minute drive to Universal Studios. The pool was great and we enjoyed that after long days at the parks. The owner was very helpful and accomodating for our request to arrive earlier than normal check-in time as well as staying a few hours beyong the normal check-out time. I would definitely recommend this home to others.
Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property...so close to amenities, and our first visit to the parks! Kids loved the pool and the amount of space in the home made us feel extremely comfortable-the neighborhood was clean and quiet and a wonderful place for an early morning run. We will certainly be back!
