Our suite is decked out with air-conditioning, 8 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and a pool and spa out back. You'll be so relaxed that you will never want to leave the house, but wait, this is Florida, so you DEFINITELY want to see all the sights and visit all the fun attractions that Florida has to offer. Not to worry, Shangri La Villa is located off Hwy 192 West. It's the closest community to Disney World in Florida with a shuttle service running out to all the major amusement parks so you don't even need to drive. Shangri La Villa is also one mile away from grocery stores, restaurants and the Formosa Gardens Shopping Mall for all your shopping needs? Are you a golfer? Well Shangri La Villa is also near many famous golf courses such as Grand Cypress Golf Club, and Walt Disney World Golf Courses.
This was a spacious home in a gated community area. After arriving to home around 4pm and I did a walk thru to find the screen to the pool torn, broke chair outside by the pool and 2 dirty BBQ grills, the game room light fixture had a shortage, one of the game tables broken, smoke detectors was chirping, when we use the kitchen sink, it leaked around the faucet, after washing some dishes, we learn the sink was clogged. Some of the blinds in the rooms was not in good shape. Black ants was on the kitchen counter. I called the owner and she referred me to the property manager. They told me someone would be coming right over, they didn't show up until the next day.
2nd day. Still waiting on the property manager, she came and was in a hurry and showed her my finding and the only corrective action she done was change out the batteries in the smoke detectors. She went to get someone from maintenance, he came with a bad attitude and told her that all this would have to wait until Monday. She was begging and the only thing he done was unclogged the sink. They did nothing about the black ants.The ice maker doesn't work as well. In each bedroom the mattress was hard. The carpet upstairs needs cleaning. I hope that Joe and Mary can make sure that their house is in better condition for their next guest.
I would like to thank Mary to begin with. The company Shangri La Villa is trustworthy/honest. At first I was skeptical about sending the owner money and hoping that I would really have a home when we arrive in Kissimmee. Let me bust that bubble for any inquiring person IT'S NO SCAM, THE PEOPLE ARE REAL, THE HOUSE IS BEAUTIFUL, THE STAY WAS GREAT, THE HOUSE IS CONVENIENTLY LOCATED BY EVERY STORE AND RESTAURANT YOU MAY EVER NEED.
Me and our guest really enjoyed our stay. We actually agreed that whenever we go to Orlando we would love to only deal with Mary. Mary is very responsive, she may take a awhile to email you back but trust in me she does communicate with you.
I would recommend this stay to any and everyone. The house was homey, gorgeous, spacious, and enjoyable. Just make sure you bring dish detergent, trash bags, and washing detergent to accommodate your family needs.
Very spacious and accomidating house/property. Close to everything, but far enough from the traffic of 192. Very desirable resort with 24 hour security. Our group of 10 stayed here and was very plesaed with everything about the property. Rooms are big, even the rooms with 2 twin beds. Would definitely stay here again
My family stayed in this villa for a week and it was awesome. Location was excellent. We would visit Disney early in the morning, come back for lunch and cool down in the pool, and then return in the evening. Restaurants and convenience stores were just a few minutes away. The 24h walmart a walk away was something else. We love the community pool and the clubhouse. The staffs were friendly and helpful.
Mary, you were very responsive from our first contact, we knew our vacation was in good hands. This vacation house is very clean and spacious and provides all conveniences.
It was the best vacation home we have ever stayed at so far. Look forward to our next vacation here.
This house was large enough to accommodate the family and friends for the reunion. The house was lovely and in great condition. Mind you there was everyday wear and tear from rentals but nothing to complain about at all. There were plenty of cooking utensils and dishes for the breakfast and dinner crowd. The pool and jacuzzi....so relaxing. Plenty of space for everyone to be in without being so bothersome. I will definately rent this home again in April 2012 for the other families reunion here in Kissimmee, FL. Mary, thanks for the wonderful accommodations.....see ya next year.
Our trip was wonderful and we truly enjoyed staying at your home! Emerald Island is a lovely, clean gated community and we felt very safe and comfortable there. The area around 192 has absolutely everything you could possibly need in terms of grocery, restaurants, and souvenir shops in addition access to all of the attractions is very quick and easy. The house itself is HUGE, and laid out perfectly for everyone to have privacy and some peace and quiet when needed. The pool area is nice and clean with adequate seating and the hot tub and pool are a fantastic way to relax at the end of a long day at the parks and not have to fight with strangers for a spot in the pool! I worried that there wouldn't be enough towels for six kids and two adults but there were plenty. The kitchen was well stocked and there were plenty of both eating and cooking utensils. My family loved it so much they want to live there!
Some tips for future renters everything you could need is very close by - five minutes or less (not counting the crazy long stop lights!!), try to bypass the grocery "Market" on 192, quite expensive, go a little further down 192 to the Publix, a very nice full service supermarket at the entrance to Orange Lake. There is also an Olive Garden, Applebees, Buffalo Wild Wings, Outback and IHOP and of course a McDonalds within five minutes.
Everyone in the area advertises close to the parks, well this house manages to be in a quiet residential location, safe and secure but very, very easy access to Disney. For quick access to Disney parks take Sherberth/Entry Point Road off of 192, less traffic and only five minutes to Animal Kingdom parking lot and you can access everything else, including the resorts and Downtown Disney from that entrance too. Be careful when renting, we drove through a couple of the vacation home communities nearby that were not nearly as nice as Emerald Island. I am so, so happy that we chose this home!!
In the past we have always rented condos at a timeshare resort and I was anxious about sending money to a complete stranger but Mary was very patient, answered all of my questions and was very responsive to our needs. Everything about the rental was just as promised, the money and contracts were handled very professionally and our deposit was returned promptly. I will recommend this house to all of our family and friends as it was lovely, relaxing and a tremendous value! We look forward to returning again very soon!
