Welcome to "Mickey's Tree House", which we have carefully selected for its excellent location and superb features! The villa has been furnished with "up-market" quality furniture, fittings, and curtains, not the usual contract furniture pack found in many rental villas, as we use the property ourselves for vacations. Look closely at the photo of the front of the villa. To the left of the door the "Mickey Tree" is there to welcome you himself!
We have visited Orlando numerous times during the last 15 years, with young children, adult daughter and son, and our elderly parents. Initially we rented villas on the US 27 Corridor at the western end of 192. However we found that these villas (available through many United Kingdom tour operators and numerous other private individuals), whilst generally well equipped, lacked the "homely feel" that we wished and were a little far out from the various attractions. The traffic on the 192 between I-4 and US-27 can be extremely congested at times.
Our SOUTH-facing swimming pool is a focal point of the villa. It backs onto a conservation area, no neighbors at the rear! and a small lake is accessed to the right of the rear garden. The pool screening is white, which does not darken the pool area, as sometime occurs with the brown and black screen structures. The main and spa pools are electrically heated The pool has a removable safety fence.
A travel crib, high chair and stroller will be provided free should you require them. (Villas rented through many Villa Holidays Companies charge $35 per week for a crib). Three of the bedrooms have queen-size beds and one bedroom (#2) has twin single beds. There are televisions, linked to the main cable system, in the Master Bedroom and Bedroom #4.
Our Villa is fully-equipped with every imaginable requirement provided, even an electric kettle for our British guests. Just arrive with your toothbrush. A large television is provided in the main lounge, with cable channels available, plus DVD. The entertainment system is connected to a "Surround Sound System" and is also available in the pool area by a separate speaker system.
After a long day having fun at the "Attractions" why not relax in the full sized corner bath tub or the double person shower that has benches installed. Alternatively soak yourself in the bubbling water of the spa bath.
There is a fully automatic washing machine, tumble dryer in the separate Laundry Room, a dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator-freezer with ice making, and full range cooker in the kitchen, plus many other supporting utilities.
For the safety conscious there is a full intruder alarm system, security lights are timer operated and the pool has a removable safety fence.
It is our aim to make your holiday as comfortable and carefree as possible. On arrival you will find the Villa freshly cleaned and laundered, and all beds will be made up. Just move in and enjoy your Holiday!

Just a quick note (I'll get back to you later after we get organized from the trip). I believe we left 2 items behind, they are Matchbox/Disney race cars, one is Goofy and the other I believe is Pluto. They might be shoved in one of the couches, that's the last I remember them or in one of the front bedrooms??? If you find them, can you PLEASE send to me and I will reimburse you. It was a gift Christian picked out for his birthday and really enjoyed...
We had a minor panic. As I said Alfie found the cars and decided to play with them (he now has 4 of his own) and then we couldn't find one until this morning when we were checking out and tidying up.
I have wrapped them and put them in a padded mailer envelope. Will post them to you on Monday.
Sorry that Alfie liked them and it cost you money in the long run. PLEASE tell him THANK YOU for finding them I greatly appreciate it. I wish I could've met you, after talking via email for so long I feel we know each other.
I WILL DEFINATELY recommend your home to EVERYONE I know who is interested and will consider your rental again in the future. Thank you for sharing your BEAUTIFUL home with us. The kids really enjoyed their time there, I wish the last 2 days didn't rain but next time will be more sunny. Thanks again.
This house was just perfect for our family vacation! The house itself is spacious, clean and bright and contains everything we needed. The location was amazing, just minutes from all the parks. We truly felt at home and will certainlly be returning on our next trip. Thanks Geoff for all the helpful information you provided prior to our trip and a special thanks to Suzanne and Peter for being so patient and wonderful!
Staying in this home was wonderful! It is close to the parks and everything else you might want on vacation. This house is clean, has great open space, a huge dining table for everyone to sit together, nice furniture and having the 4 bedrroms was perfect. It was so nice after a tiring day to come "home" and refresh ourselves in the pool or jacuzzi before retiring. Geoff is very personable and will give you great advice on the parks and other thing that he and his family have enjoyed in the area! He has a book on the counter when you arrive, informing you of everything you need to know about the house and then some. Thank you Geoff for making us feel like a guest and not just a renter. On our next trip to Disney we plan on staying here!
We DID NOT stay at this location due to a schedule conflict; however, we wanted to leave a positive comment just the same because the homeowner was kind enough to offer us names of other similar houses in the area that met our needs. Given Mr. Fowler's generosity of nature with his time, I would feel comfortable recommending him and his home to anyone needing a Disney-area vacation villa. Thank you, Geoff!!
This place is AWESOME!! I did alot of research trying to find just the right home for our vacation. We recently returned from a fabulous two week trip to Mickey's Tree House. The house is beautiful and had everything we needed for a perfect stay. The location couldn't have been any better. Best of all Geoff is wonderful to deal with. I feel like I know him personally after all the emails and help he gave us while planning our trip. He even called us at Mickey's Tree House while we were there to make sure everything was to our liking. I would recommend this home to everyone planning a disney vacation. I can't wait to start planning our next trip to Mickey's Tree House.
To Geoff, thank you again for all your help!
Stop your looking because you have found the right home! I have done COUNTLESS hours searching and finally found this gem. We just returned from a 7 night stay and can give you the scoop. What makes this home so perfect is: 1)LOCATION - it took no longer to get to Disney turnstiles than it did for us when we stayed at the non-monorail resorts. Plus Wal-Mart is 2-3 miles away and many restaurants close by. This is the ideal location! 2)VALUE. We looked at hundreds of properties and located them on the map and then checked prices. Nothing compares! Your pool truly is private with no backdoor neighbors. 3)SERVICE. Just send an email to Geoff and see what I mean! Geoff will be a wealth of info from booking to check-out. As a bonus, he has great local management who do a great job taking care of you and giving you local tips as well! We will definitely return to Mickey's Tree House with our next Orlando vacation!
Mickey's tree house was fantastic. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to stay at your facility. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. The location was close to the parks and also shopping in town. The staff was so nice and really went out of there way to make us comfortable. Thanks again and look forward to staying with you again.
