Verified Stay

From the moment we booked the home, we had a great experience. Pierre and Carolyn were the best hosts we could ask for by answering our questions prior to arrival and making sure everything was ready when we got there.

When we arrived at the home it not only met our expectations, but exceeded them! During our stay, we visited Disney World and Kennedy Space Center. We traveled with our four kids and my mom. The main floor master suite had a beautiful bathroom with a large relaxing tub and was a perfect us. The upstairs bedroom was a great location for my mom to have her own place to get away after busy days at Disney with all of us. Our kids shared the other two bedrooms and loved having their own bathrooms.

The home was well-maintained and a perfect location. It felt welcoming and like the perfect home away from home. We can't wait to enjoy it again the next time we go to Florida!

A perfect getaway!

My family stayed at this beautiful home away from home in Aug. It is better than the pictures! Very clean and has everything you will need for a carefree vacation. The pool was perfect for relaxing by and the neighbourhood is very quiet. We enjoyed the well appointed kitchen to prepare our meals and had fun with all the games and activities that are available. The owners Carolyn and Pierre have created a beautiful and welcoming place to relax and enjoy. They were also very quick to reply to any questions we had. The proximity to Orlando attractions, LEGOLAND and beaches is very handy too. I will definitely return and recommend this home to others! It was a perfect vacation!

Fabulous Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this property. All the pictures well represented the property and we were not disappointed in house, furnishings, and comfort. It was especially nice to have the pool to enjoy at the end of each day and although it was a vacation, we loved having a washer and dryer to use. The owners and property management were attentive to our every need and question. We had unfortunately been caught in the SW Airlines computer crash, so arrived at the house one day late and the owners offered to extend our stay one day with no charge. This was an excellent property and I recommend it highly!

Vacation June 23-28, 2016

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Carolyn and Piere for having such a beautiful home that you share. My family especially enjoyed the space of the rooms and the fact that the kitchen was very well equipped and allowed us to have family meals without dining out. The grandchildren LOVED your pool. It was hard to get them to want to go back to Disney at the end of the day. You definitely had families in mind when you furnished your lovely home. We did not have small children, but if we did, I saw that every need a parent could have would have been met to include the gate around the pool area. We vacation in the Disney area at least once a year and can't wait to book with you again.

Thank you for wonderful vacation memories.

Awesome Home away from Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 2nd time my wife and I have rented this home and without a doubt we will do so again! It is clear immediately upon arrival that the owners take a great deal of pride in their home. It is extremely well maintained, clean, in a very good location, and has a south facing pool which is fantastic. We felt very comfortable during our stay and guests we had visit were so impressed that they are interested in spending time there in the future as well. We also had family members spend a week with us and there was ample space for all of us with the number of bedrooms and bathrooms available. Access to all the amusement parks, golf, dining and shopping is another big plus for this home's location. Already looking forward to our next stay!!!
