Just returned from a week's stay at this condo. It was our first time staying in a condo versus a Disney resort. Can't believe how much more space we got for so much less money. Our party of 5 was very comfortable.
It was about a 20 minute drive to the Disney parks. Traffic was never an issue no matter what time of the day we went. I-4 could be a little heavier at times, but we never had any delays or even any stop-n-go traffic.
The condo itself was spacious, clean, and pleasantly decorated (minus the fake plants, but that is a personal preference). There were many, many extras in the condo (a crockpot, laundry basket, hampers, baby items like highchair, pack-n-play, crib set, bathroom scales). There were plenty of towels and washcloths and dishes/silverware which was appreciated. The only things we found we needed was an additional skillet. There was only one small one, which made it difficult when preparing breakfast a couple of mornings. And a cookie sheet would be handy. My daughter picked up some cookie dough while out shopping and we ended up baking cookies in a cake pan.
The community pool/hot tub was very nice and there were never more than a handful of people down there. The few people that we did see around were very nice. Some were residents and others were also there on vacation. The community is gated and was very quiet.
We did have an issue with the refrigerator on our arrival evening. It was not kicking on and the inside was very warm. We called the management company and was told it was fine (even though we were the ones standing in front of it and this person was not). We had just purchased cold items so were concerned about losing them. Fortunately, about 10 minutes after the call it kicked on and proceeded to work fine the rest of the week. Maybe it just takes time to get started after the cleaning crew defrost and turns the settings down. Not sure, but like I said it worked fine after it did kick on.
The owner was also very easy to work with and always answered my emails in a very timely fashion. Much appreciated.
We had a very pleasant stay. If we ever decided to go the condo route again for a Disney vacation, we would not hesitate to rent here again.
