Proximity to Disney World, theme parks and tourist attractions
Solana Resort amenities and security features
We looked at ALL the other resorts including the ones closer to some of the local attractions, but opted for the private full sized patio, bigger swimming pool, screen enclosure, we preffered the separate driveway (instead of parking lot in front of our villa) & two car garage game room
After all the other properties we looked at, we were the most impressed by the way the Solana Resort Home Owners Assoc. prides themselves on maintaining their homes and properties.
Shopping & highway conveniences
Quiet neighborhood that feels like home
The villa was absolutely beautiful! Our family enjoyed our stay and was very sad to leave this beautiful home. It is very nicely decorated with great amenities and very clean! We enjoyed having our own private heated pool after a long day of walking. The clubhouse was also a nice added touch which my daughter enjoyed! I would highly recommend your beautiful villa to all my family and friends. Thank you for making our vacation so spectacular!!!
Our trip to Disney was a complete surprise for our 4 kids. When we arrived at the house, all the beautiful decor and amenitites just added to the excitement of our long over due vacation. The layout of rooms was great, location of the house was easy to get to & from the parks, the house was clean and again the decor was perfect! I had forgot a hairdryer, but to my surprise there was a hairdryer in each bathroom if needed. In the kitchen, there was spices (salt/pepper/etc) in the cabinet for cooking which was a nice touch. Having our own pool to jump into after a long day at the parks was an added bonus! We have recommended this property to all our family and friends. The owners were easy to work with and communicated well. The added security of the gated-resort community also was a perk. The clubhouse has a lot of fun options too, but we would always come home too late to try them out. We cannot wait to return to the house in the future! Thank you for helping me give our family the vacation they will remember always!!!
Alan and Kathryn's rental house was just what we needed for our Spring Break vacation to Florida. The house was well kept and our boys (ages 10 and 13) loved the garage/play area. They also loved having their own rooms with their own televisions and bathrooms. It was a little on the cooler side when we arrived, so having the pool heat turned on was a huge plus. We only wish we had a few more days to spend just sitting at the house, exploring the club house and playing in the pool.
The rental process was easy and working with the owners was a great experience. We would certainly recommend this property to others looking to stay in the area.
We would like to recommend that the owner purchase a "dust buster" or small, hand-held vacuum for the home to make cleaning up the crumbs a little easier for renters to keep things tidy. Also, renters should note that they may need to purchase toilet paper and garbage bags for a stay longer than four days. Our family of 4 ran out of toilet paper in 2 bathrooms and by the time we gathered the garbage from the home, the 1 bag we were given in the kitchen was full. Not a bad thing, just something to know for next time....which I hope will be soon!!
This condo was perfect for our visit to Orlando. We were visiting Disney, Universal as well as Legoland so this condo worked great since it was in the middle of them all. It has all the amenities you would ever need as well as a great game room in the garage. The decor is fun and my daughter loves the Mickey and pirate rooms. They also have a nice stock of books, games and DVDs so staying in. We loved having our own private pool in the back that was heated perfectly as we were there during a cold front. The owners were easy to get a hold of and quick to respond. Only suggestion is that they don't stock a lot of paper products so you may need to add that to the grocery list. We bought paper towel, extra toilet paper and tissues. The neighborhood is very nice as well and gated. Would definitely recommend this villa to anyone looking for a lovely home outside of the hustle bustle of disney area but just close enough to visit.
The home is a beautiful and well kept property. Extremely clean and comfortable. The kids loved the themed bedrooms and the location was great for all the major attractions. The owners are friendly and truly want you to enjoy your stay.
If You Want The Absolute BEST!
This home is much nicer, better than pictured and wonderfully delightful with all the hidden surprises in the décor. From the moment we opened the front door we could tell the owners put a lot of thought into making this home not only beautiful, but comfortable too. It’s unbelievable. It was so nice to have a real home to come back to after a long day at the parks instead of a hotel. Also, the well-equipped kitchen and laundry area was a blessing. It’s an easy 15 – 20 minute drive to most of the park attractions. The neighborhood is quiet, safe and everyone keeps their houses nice. My husband and I took walks at night and we felt so safe. The grand-kids loved the private swimming pool, bedrooms & the game room! There is a playground located at the clubhouse which they went to almost every evening. We did a lot of shopping, mostly because it was so conveniently located. The grand-kids put up such a fuss when it was time to leave. We will come back to this villa again and schedule our vacation to the availability of this home. I hope next time my husband and I can spend more time actually at the villa enjoying all it has to offer like the enclosed screened private pool and BBQ……and RELAX more. We’ll be back for sure.
