We reserved the estate after touring for my daughter's wedding and so glad we did. The grounds created the woodland ambiance she wanted and made the perfect setting for pictures. The added bonus of providing sleeping for the bridal party and close family allowed for a full weekend of celebration. Ginger (property manager) was very responsive to all contacts and was knowledgeable about everything from how to operate the pool spa to pacman game. It was a pleasure to work with someone so efficient and she was very patient with this mother of the bride and novice wedding planner. The homes were very clean and organized, and the property provided so many options for entertainment we never got to enjoy them ALL during our day stay. If I were asked to offer any suggestions for improvement for the estate I would have none. The home is exactly as pictured with much attention to detail. AMAZING attention to detail. We didn't have many children stay but I can imagine that any child would love this place as much as Disney and here, mom doesn't have to worry where the kids are because it's all enclosed (Property surrounded by water and no one on "island" except your party). It's a fabulous option for the do it yourself wedding, although they do offer a list of preferred vendors. My one suggestion from an event standpoint is they need to expand that list and remove vendors who do not live up to guests expectation or even to their commitment as the caterer seriously let us down and failed to fulfill their commitment, the only fiasco to our otherwise fairy tale perfect wedding. While February can be an iffy month weather wise in Florida, a big thanks to Ginger and Andrew (owner) for arranging the PERFECT weather for our wedding day. High of 72, low of 64 and no mosquitoes (OK, so maybe God had a lot to do with that lol). Thanks Ginger, Andrew (and his displaced family) for allowing us to use your private, beautiful home for our once in a life time, Happy EVER AFTER event!
