Disney 2016 Epic Adventure

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time that our extended family booked a place together for a Disney vacation and this place did not disappoint. I was hesitant to book a place online, though the owners and property managers were amazing!

Positives:

- location, location, location: this gated community has many amenities. The house is situated close to the main reception area and tiki bar (which was very convenient). The house backs on the a lovely pond and walking trail.

- size matters: we had 13 people (8 adults and 5 children ages 1 - 7). It provided our family with more than enough space. The 4 main bedrooms with ensuites was very handy, especially when all getting ready to go to Disney in the morning!

- house maintenance: the house is beautiful and well maintained. As other posts suggest, the carpets upstairs need replacing, though we didn't think they were that bad, plus the owners are looking at replacing with hardwood. The BBQ definitely needs replacing, though the rest of the outdoor living space is amazing. We loved that the pool and spa had morning to mid-afternoon sun, though there is a covered porch to get some shade.

- nice touches: baby equipment, sheets and towels (we brought our own though never used them because the sheets and towels at the house are so nice), large eat-in kitchen island, 2 indoor sitting areas, beautiful furniture and decorations

- close to the action: 10-15 mins from Disney depending on traffic , outlet mall 20 mins away

Downsides

- needing to be replaced: BBQ, carpets, pool cover

- karaoke at tiki bar on Tuesday nights...very loud (we would just plan better next time to stay late at Disney that night)

Truly, from a very skeptical first-time renter, this was an amazing place to rent and we would definitely rent again in the future!

Great house! Incredible amount of space

  • 5 of 5

I took my family to this property over the Easter Weekend and it was awesome. Space in the home was massive, rooms were great, clean and the accessible bathrooms was awesome. The beds were amazing for rest and the dining area and sitting areas were well equipped with seating. We had issues with the pool and jacuzzi tub but both the property manager and the owners assisted to resolve the issue! We really enjoyed our stay and will 100% do it again!

Thanks you Stewart, Mary-Anne and Stan for a memorable vacation spot in 2016! Bring on 2017!!

Great House, Great Location, Highly Recommend

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from a 5 night stay at this property. We had 7 adults and 7 children (ages 2-5) in our party. Overall, we loved the property and would stay again. The house had ample space for everybody, and the bedrooms were very comfortable and well sized. The kitchen worked out well, with a ton of counter space, and the kitchen island is very large and was great for meals with the kids and adults alike. By far the best part of the house is the pool/spa area, and the close proximity to the clubhouse pool, which the kids loved. The pool/spa heat worked great for us. We were there to go to Disney World, and the property was only a 15 minute drive to the parks (using their recommended directions). Bring quarters for the $1.00 toll each way, but well worth the money for the traffic free convenience. We had a situation where one of the portable cribs malfunctioned, but Mary Ann was great, and even had another one brought to the house for us (even though it was our last night there). The house does need some upgrades, including the upstairs carpet that has been mentioned in other reviews, and the dryer needs to be run twice to dry a load of laundry. There were some other small nit-picky things as well that we thought could have been better, but in the grand scheme they are very minor and not a big deal. A few upgrades here and there, and this is 5 stars all day long. Overall this is a really great house, and for folks reading reviews trying the decide on a vacation home to rent (like I did), I would say that this would be an outstanding choice, a great value, and the owners are great as well.

As advertised...

  • 4 of 5

This is a large property with the best location in the subdivision. 50' to a great heated clubhouse pool and tiki bar .

The home has a large kitchen with all the appliances there are plenty of bathrooms and a game room garage.

As advertised the carpeting needs to be replaced but other than that it's a great vacation spot.

Great Location, nice property just a few steps away from Clubhouse.

  • 4 of 5

Nice large house next door to the clubhouse. Property was clean, but needed some updating and carpet needed replacing as there were lots of stains. The game room was nice, but the video game unit was broke and the game room was being used for storage. All kitchen utensils, plates, cups, pots pans, and appliances were present. The pool and hot tub didn't work properly and didn't warm up very well and was the only downside.

Great House, Great proximity to Disney, Great Owners and Management Company

  • 5 of 5

There were 12 of us in our group, 8 Adults and 4 Kids.

Having 4 King En-suites really worked for us as getting ready in the morning with 5 full baths was great, no waiting and plenty of hot water to go around.

In the bedrooms the beds were quite comfortable and the rooms were nicely appointed.

The Island in the kitchen was great to get the 12 of us around for meals and the well appointed kitchen made cooking a snap.

The open concept family room and kitchen allowed all of us to be in the room at one time without being on top of each other.

The Dining/Living room was a quieter part of the house that could be enjoyed if you wanted some time reading or just sitting in peace. The area was nicely decorated.

The games room was great, hot during the day but we were only at the house in the evenings. Having Foosball/Billiards/Ping Pong was a great choice and if we had stayed a few more days I bet we would have gotten more use out of it.

I believe there were 7 TV's in the house, each one on cable so plenty of channels to chose from, they were also all flat panels.

The best technical point for me on this property was that the thermostat was not set by the owner over the internet, we like it cool and could set the AC to 72 degrees and sleep comfortably, there were other houses that I looked at where the owner could override your manual setting and set the house to 78 degrees but not here, we were in control and after hot days at Disney this is an important factor when choosing a house.

The owners were responsive to any questions we had and provided a home that was cleaned and ready to go on time for our arrival. Some have mentioned the older carpet and yes there is a stain or 2 but I was much more at ease knowing I didn't have to worry as much about my kids running around on it and just cause there was a couple of stains doesn't mean the carpet wasn't clean, I never detected any odor from the carpet so for me as I was only renting for 8 days it was a non issue.

Disney is about 10-15 minutes away at any time and if 1 route is backed up there are 2 others so traffic is not a factor.

A very special thanks to Lisa Noyce from All Florida Villas as we left a tablet at the house and she took time from her day to get it and ship it back to us without charging any handling, she offered excellent customer service and went above and beyond what is required.

In short I'd stay there again and give the place high marks in every category.
