Dr. Phillips Condo
Submitted: April 22, 2012
Stayed: April 2012
My family of four (2 boys ages 7 and 9) stayed at this condo for a week in April 2012 and it was perfect for us. Having separate bedrooms for the kids, 2 TVs, 2 bathrooms, and a full kitchen made our stay in Orlando so nice. Having a washer and dryer was also fantastic so we didn't have to pack clothes for a full week or do ten loads of laundry after we got home. The property is close to anything you might need and is beautifully maintained. There is also a nice pool area, a playground right out back, two tennis courts, and a basketball court. I think there is a fitness room too, but am not sure. The property manager met us when we arrived and was extremely helpful. He gave us directions to the different attractions and stores we planned to visit and advice on when not to go to Busch Gardens in Tampa in order to avoid the traffic. We had one issue with a bathtub not draining correctly and he got a plumber in promptly to fix it and at no inconvenience to us at all.
We have season passes for the Sea World parks and love that Sea World and Aquatica were about 5 minutes away. We could come and go for a few hours at a time since we were so close. International drive is very close as well. Very easy to get to if you want to go mini-golfing or to the fun restaurants and tourist destinations.
If you plan to stay here, a car is definitely preferable. There is a bus that runs both directions on the main road at the entrance to the complex and a big box store that you could walk to (though it would be a bit of a hike if you are carrying stuff back), but I would recommend a car.
One more thing is that this is a first floor unit. There are wide doorways, big bathrooms, and no stairs, so it would be good for someone who has difficulty getting around.
All in all, I highly recommend this condo. Great location. Very well kept. I felt safe and secure. Nice space so my family of four was not sharing a two bedroom hotel room for a week.
