Just a short note on how much we enjoyed staying at this home this winter. Loved the house. It was spacious and our king size bed was wonderful. We all loved the pool and spa, but especially granddaughters(ages 3 & 5).
We loved the quietness of the area, and yet being so close to Disney World and all the entertainment that tourists love to see.
We spent time at Disney, Legoland , Sea World, Old Town, Downtown Disney, drove out to Kennedy Space Centre plus enjoyed a lot of good restaurants.
Loved the fact that we were near the sidewalk so that we could walk and the grand daughters could ride their bikes.
I believe we made memories that we will treasure forever.
Would consider staying again in the future.
This VRBO was perfect for our family! Large rooms for visiting, dining plus a great pool for grandchildren. We were very close to Disney and Universal studios with grocery stores and restaurants close by. We would certainly rent this well-maintained home again.
We took our first trip to the Orlando Area last Feb. As we drove through the area on our way to the house, we passed by many,many houses that we were glad we did not rent. It seems most of the houses are practically on top of each other. The people at the pools looked like animals on display at the zoo. This was not the case with Thousand Oaks! The neighborhood had houses with nice sized yards. The house wrapped around the pool on three sides. The pool had bushes on the 4th side. We always felt peacefully alone at the house. The hot tub was nice and hot. The pool was comfortably warm in Feb. Even though the house was near all the attractions, we spent 2 days of our week just enjoying the comfortable house. The only negative is that you do have to mail your check all the way to England or pay a fee to use a credit card. That small hassle ahead of time is worth the relaxation when you get to Florida.
We loved the pool and the convenient location to all of Orlando's attractions. The home was large and well maintained and in a very quiet neighbourhood. When we return to the Orlando area we will definitely be contacting Carole about renting this home again!
We found every aspect of our stay at Thousand Oaks perfect for our three generation family holiday. The location was perfect as all parks etc. are within easy reach, but to come home to a quieter area was ideal. The property is clean and well maintained. The pool is perfect for young and old alike. I would thoroughly recommend this property and we genuinely hope to take more family members to stay there in the future.
We have rented this vacation home multiple times and each time we leave refreshed and rejuvenated! It is located in a quiet neighborhood that is close to all the major attractions. The property is clean and well-maintained. Carole, the owner is easy to work with and the management company is helpful too. We have stayed at hotels and other vacation homes in the Orlando/Davenport area and none of them compare to this rental. If you're looking for a place to relax and still have the conveniences of home this is a great place to stay. Our family looks forward to returning this summer.
