Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear David,



I just wanted to send an note to say "Thank You!" for letting us stay in your wonderful condo for our first visit to Disney World. It is a beautiful place and we thoroughly enjoyed staying there. I would highly recommend it to others, and I would definitely recommend staying off property when visiting Disney World. It was so nice to get in our car and get away from the crowds for a while. And what a great place to get away to! We loved spending time on the patio and we enjoyed all the extra space that we wouldn't have had in a hotel room. Mike & I didn't get a chance to enjoy the wonderful hot tub, but that was due to our busy Disney schedule.



If we ever make it back to Orlando, we will definitely contact you to see if your place is available.



Thank you, again, for offering such a wonderful place for such an affordable rate. Your generosity makes for wonderful vacation and memories for others.



Warmest regards,

Jennifer and Mike

David's Condo was excellent, very clean, well equipped and great location for Theme Parks

  • 5 of 5

The Condo was located on the 4th floor overlooking the fabulous pirate ship and pool, which was a great size. We had complimentary towels which we could use. The gardens and surrounding areas were very well maintained. All members of staff were very friendly and helpful. All attractions were within a 10 min drive from the Resort.

The Condo itself was very spacious for our group of 6 adults. There was plenty of everything for everyone.

We would highly recommend this Condo to our friends and families, which we have done so already.

We have started to plan our next visit.

First time at Lake Buena Vista

  • 3 of 5

The resort is very nice! But when we arrived we had to wait over an hour after 4:00 to check in. They said the room was not prepared and we're still cleaning. So about 5:15 we were given keys. We finally got in the room and it was clean to some extent. Still waiting for the refrigerator to get cold. And there is blue gum above the headboard in the guest room. The appliances are old and the stove has food in the crevices of it. The view is gorgeous.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I called the resort manager and passed on your comments. The resort's official check in time is 4:00 P.M. However, the resort manager stated these guests initially tried to check in at 11:15 A.M. and were told they can relax at either pool until check in time at 4:00 P.M. Check out time is 11:00 and I had a guest the previous night. So, obviously, the housekeeping department needs time to clean each condo in the resort. Additionally, it was a Saturday on the July 4 weekend. The guest checked in just after 4 and NOT 5:15. The manager also explained condos are always cleaned to a very high standard as my previous guests commented. The housekeeping department manager met with the guests the next day and offered free cleaning services throughout their stay. The guest declined and said it was not necessary! Both the resort management and I strive to give our guests the best possible experience during their stay with us..

great condo, close to attractions and family friendly

  • 5 of 5

We go to Orlando a couple times a year since we have family there and this was a great place to stay and we will be back. We have stayed all over Orlando from the Disney Resorts (Animal Kingdom Resort), other full service resorts and other condos and this is the place we will be returning to. The condo was as described very easy check in, clean well stocked,, 2 great pools one with a pirate ship waterslide. We had a issue with the refrigerator and front desk had someone up to fix it right away. The resort is close to outlet stores, a grocery store and only a 10 min drive to Disney Parks.

It would be our pleasure to have you stay with us again. Yes, the on site resort management is very good at taking care of any issues which may arise as you have seen. Our condo and resort are in a perfect location close to Disney, restaurants and shopping. Thanks again for choosing to stay with us. Kind regards, David

Very nice. I would recommend this resort to anyone.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this property. The condo was exceptional. I loved the two bedrooms. The large jacuzzi tub was very nice. We enjoyed the view from the balcony. Our kids loved the pools. All of the staff was very nice and professional. The condo owner was very responsive. He answered all of my questions in a timely manner. He was very easy and nice to work with. We will definitely return in the future. Booking through VRBO is the easiest way to book a vacation.

Nice place. Nice resort. Convenient to all things Disney. 4 stars for sure.

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for a week with wife and 2 boys for our first Disney Trip. Chose to stay offsite vs a Disney Resort. Not disappointed with this decision. Condo was a very good value and very close to all of the Disney parks. Plenty of restaurants nearby too. Would recommend and stay here again.

The great: Value. Convenient to Disney. Beds were super comfy. No issues with parking. Kids loved the Pirate Ship Pool.

The good: Condo is in mostly good condition. Everything worked (appliances and AC). The pool. Bar at pool. The owner of this condo was very responsive to all questions asked...BUT...

The not quite great: ...BUT...I never got a warm and fuzzy or a thanks for inquiring or renting from the owner. Maybe it's an international thing. Resort seemed to view my booking through a private person (rather than their booking service) as a lower priority - condo was not ready at advertised check in time. Not the owners fault - but still something to know might happen to you. Also you should know this place is run like a hotel. You call the front desk for issues not the owner of the condo. Glad I didn't have to do this after check in went so well. They also charge for extra cleanings and to take out your trash. Have fun with that.

The only bad - The couch is plain awful. Super uncomfortable.

All in all - I would definitely stay here again, but this is not 5 star worthy. In order to garner that from me, you need to have A+ furnishings and the place needs to have nothing that needs repaired and the transaction needs to be great. I'd give this condo a B on furnishings (again, the couch was awful), a B on condition (some drywall work should be in order) and a B- on transaction.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I'm glad to hear you and your family would recommend my condo/resort and would stay again. However, I must address some items mentioned in your review which are completely inaccurate. I have rented my condo to hundreds of families since 2007. I think you asked me more questions than any guest in the past...questions like if the condo has trash bags! Nevertheless, I answered every question in a timely and professional manner. As regards to the "warm and fuzzy"...well, I really don't know what to say about that one except that the very first thing I said when I responded to your initial request was to say, "Thank you for your inquiry..." as I do with every request. I even sent you an email the first day of your stay and wished you and your family a pleasant stay. I'm an American and not sure what your implying by saying "maybe it's an international thing." I probably receive on average 6 requests a day, every day since 2008 and respond to every request, every question in very timely manner even when I'm travelling. I have one of highest positive review counts on VRBO which should say something. Of course the booking was private hence Vacation Rental By Owner or VRBO. It absolutely makes no difference to the resort if it was a private booking or through a travel website. A booking is a booking and there is NO priority given to anyone. Yes, there is a management company on site which immediately takes care of issues which may arise. It makes so much more sense to have someone on site at the resort 24 hours a day to address any issues immediately as opposed to contacting me. Cleaning and related charges are an option during the guests stay as is clearly stated in the rental agreement that this guest signed. So, there are no surprises and I'm not sure why this guest felt the need to mention this in the review. The sofa, most of the furniture and carpet in the condo is just a few months new as the condo was refurbished very recently. (Please see my previous 129 more accurate reviews.)

Absolutely Fantastic, Would Recommend and Rebook

  • 5 of 5

As all the other reviewers have stated, what you see is what you get, no surprises. Tons of room, excellent views, ample parking and so close to the Airport, amenities and attractions. The condo was very clean fully stocked and if you ran out of anything a simple call or a visit to the main building resolved that. Enjoyed having the full laundry in the condo, helped a lot. I did not realize that pool towels are complimentary at the pool site, I brought some with us, not needed. Really enjoyed our patio and it faced onto the pool area, mornings and evenings it was completely shaded so could sit out there very comfortably. There is a Walmart with 5-10min drive for grocery runs etc but the convenience store located across the street had plenty of supplies in a pinch if needed and within walking distance. The outlet mall is also within walking distance for those who like to shop. I can't say enough, so much value for your dollar versus what we would have gotten from a hotel. If I was to ever go back I would not hesitate to rebook with David. Easy transaction, David does respond to all your emails, answers what he can otherwise you can call the facility directly. It runs very much like a hotel. You can purchase all your attraction tickets there, we opted to book prior to leaving home, however that service is available. Shuttles available to the major attractions. There is a spa on site, also a nice perk, Fitness Facility if you want to workout. We had such a fantastic time, thanks David.
