Guestbook comments from the owner

We are back home (unfortunately!) after our trip to Orlando. I just wanted to thank you for the fabulous accommodation we enjoyed at Mickies Cove. Our family had a wonderful time and it definitely felt like home for us. None of us wanted to leave.



The home provided us with everything we needed and more. Our grandchildren really enjoyed the pool and games room. The life jackets were perfect for our two grandddaughters and allowed them to play worry free with their older cousins in the pool.



It was the best vacation we have had and will not go back to hotel rooms again.



Thanks so much for the great service. The whole experience right from our initial inquiries about the home, has been great!

Overall very good but pool was too cold

  • 3 of 5

The house was great with lots of extras we were not expecting like books, toys and games for the kids. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of linen, towels, etc. I was also pleased to find a packnplay, high chair, baby monitor, and baby gates by the steps. They thought of everything! The bathroom doors don't lock so that was a bit of an issue as we always had to assign someone to stand guard. Also, we payed for pool heat but they never turned it on. That was upsetting as our pool was to cold. We had friends nearby and used their pool instead. It's just a shame when you pay extra for something and then you don't get it. The management company doesn't answer their phone so you're basically on your own.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay in our home. I am sorry you felt the pool was not heated to your liking. This is the first I am hearing of the pool heat issue. We heat our pool to 84 degrees (same temp as Disney pools) and the pool heater is brand new. It is not heated to bathtub temperatures as I would have to charge more money for the heat.

Perfect fit, great for families!

  • 5 of 5

Like many others, the appeal for me was that this house was family ready. The owner was truly great to deal with. Once we arrived, I just could not stop smiling. The place was beautiful and completely ready for toddlers. Since we traveled with 3 of them, this was HUGE. Highchairs, booster seat, potty seats (we had a new trainee), pack n play, kids cups/plates/utensils and the play kitchen in the game room. If the kids are happy, the adults are happy.

We each had our own master bedroom with bathroom. Such a pleasure. We had a group of 10, from 18mos to 83 years. Three couples, three toddlers and one single person and there was room for us all. The photos do not do it justice. The kitchen table was bigger than pictured which was a good thing. The Home Owners Assoc. was great. They put the cans on the sidewalk for pick up and replaced them. We never saw this happen, but know it did. The lawns were continually maintained. SO clean! We had a raccoon get in to our garbage, and before I could call in it, they were there to clean up the mess! The gate guards were very well informed and knew how to handle first timers, same for the folks in the clubhouse.

The restaurants nearby were great; with the exception of Bob Evans. That was a disappointment. The ones near home are great. Pass the one on 192 by! I would highly recommend Bone Fish. It was great. We did have pizza delivered, since we are from NY we were quite picky. I chose delivery from an Italian Restaurant, it was ok. Better than Hut or Papa's for sure, but nothing is close to NY pizza! The grocery stores were expensive, but it is a resort area, you have to expect that. This was my first rental experience and I will never go back to hotels when this is the option. I only hope all other owners are as pleasant as this one! Thanks Carole for a wonderful experience!! We will be back!

Great House and Location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a clean and fully supplied house! The pool was heated and nice and warm! Our children enjoyed the house and decorated rooms as well as the game room in the garage. The house is in a great location… the back way to DisneyWorld was great and saved us lots of time. We enjoyed DisneyWorld and Sea World and enjoyed coming back to the house to eat and relax and swim each evening. It was perfect! Thank you for all you did to make our vacation so special and enjoyable. Will definitely recommend this house to others heading down to Disney for vacation. My only complaint was that there was not a larger baking tray in the kitchen big enough for our family of 11… we made due without one! Thank you again for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home- truly welcoming and a great place to vacation. It was a pleasure dealing with you as well.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our large family of 14 stayed here in October and had a fabulous time! We maxed out the home's official capacity, yet had plenty of room to enjoy each other as well as this beautiful home. We have 3 adult children and their spouses and we all had our own bedrooms and baths! And the two kid bedrooms were just perfect for the grandkids who also had their own bathroom. And another guest bathroom on main level! Our youngest grandkids stayed with their parents in the large upstairs master. We thoroughly enjoyed our downstairs master. This was our first Disney vacation with the whole family and it just couldn't have been nicer! I really wasn't sure if the kids enjoyed Disney or the pool more! Many happy memories in that fabulous pool! And the playroom was great too! Dining was great as the kids loved eating in the kitchen which left the large beautiful dining room for the adults. Plenty of room! And to top it off, owner Carol was just great to work with. Answered all of our questions and very responsive to emails. Thanks, Carol, your home helped our vacation become a dream come true. Thank you!! Would we come back? In a second!

Your home was lovely, very comfortable for our children and grandchildren, convenient to get to Disney, restaurants and supermarkets. I would definitely recommend your house to others. We loved the heated pool after a day at Disney.

Great house

Wish we would have had more time to spend relaxing at the house but it was great to come home to after visiting busy parks all day. Layout of bedrooms & all bathroom ensuites was perfect
