The location was pretty much perfect! The longest drive was, if I remember, 15 minutes from the farthest Disney park. The neighborhood was very safe and quiet, almost too quiet from what I'm used to, lol!
It is most recommended that you have a rental car for transportation. Freeway access was very easy and never experienced any side-street traffic. Freeway traffic was almost nonexistent; however, I'm used to the traffic in the San Francisco Bay Area. Food and convenience stores were a really short drive away with the bigger stuff (ex Super Target) were just a few miles out.

The house was large and very clean! It has plenty of room for more than 7 people, up to 9 adults assuming 3 pairs were sharing the larger beds. The living room sofa was not a pull out bed, if I remember correctly. At least two bedrooms (master rooms) had ceiling fans; can't remember the other two rooms.
Each room has its own TV with a flat panel in the living room. The other TVs were the old tubes, but that's okay--didn't watch much anyway! Also, I believe each TV was cable-connected. There was open Wi-fi in the house. I would have preferred that the network was not an open network and at least password protected for security.
The bathrooms were nice and large. The showers were a bit lacking in pressure but was tolerable--I think a different showerhead might be a solution. (Note: I am a water pressure snob when it comes to showers--most probably aren't like me.) The water itself was not soft water (thank goodness), I can't stand soft water!
I really liked the washer and dryer--high capacity!
We were so busy that we never got a chance to use the pool though I am sure it would've been fun.
Overall, the house was great and would definitely stay here again! Allergy sufferers will be joyous that the floors are all tile! Kitchen was fully stocked with cookware, glassware, and utensils.
NOTE: It's probably best to get a supply of the following prior to arrival: Paper Towel, Tissue, Laundry Detergent, Food/Beverages, Hand Soap, and the standard travel toiletries.
