Guestbook comments from the owner

Patricia, Many, many thanks for providing a house that was perfect for our family get together over the holidays. The house was great and beautifully decorated for Christmas. Everything was clean and well supplied with all the "stuff" needed for an extended stay. The 5 grandkids and 7 adults loved the play room and the pool. The adults had plenty of room to visit and also enjoyed the spa and pool. (The heater worked great and fast, by the way.) The movable fence between the pool and patio was a fantastic idea. We could let the little ones play on the patio without worry they would end up in the pool. All of us spent some relaxing time in the cinema room. That is when we could get the older kids away from the gaming! The people managing your house and providing maintenance, were extremely prompt and courteous when we had questions. We will definitely call you again when we return to Florida. Everyone really enjoyed Disney and wants to come back again. Thank you for making your great home available. Everything was just like you said it would be and I hope we left your home in the same great shape as when we arrived. Best Regards, Larry

Good but not perfect

  • 4 of 5

First I want to say that this house was very nice in a nice gated community. We did have some problems however. First of all there is a great Cinema Room that is even advertised in the title. Our kids were excited to try it out. However, we were all disappointed when we realized NOTHING WORKED! My husband who has extensive knowledge in these kinds of things had to spend hours resetting it up so that it would work for the kids. This didn't set a good mood for him. Having to work while on vacation to fix something that should be working for us. After this initial situation we did have a nice week. The pool was great and the kitchen came in handy. The place was clean however there were a few things like dirty towels left in the laundry room when we go there. Again, we washed them and fixed that problem. Overall I'd say our stay was very nice. Not perfect but we had a good time and enjoyed staying here.

Wonderful Service and Communication!

  • 5 of 5

I found out only 5 days before leaving for vacation that I had been scammed through the VRBO/HomeAway site. I had flights and rental cars for my family of 7 and no place to stay. Add on top of it that is was the Christmas Holiday. I reached out to properties to see if any availability and was very hesitant due to my experience. Everything was exactly as it said and it was a very quiet neighborhood. The on-site property manager was great and very responsive. The owner was very nice and communicated quickly. If you love Orlando and all it has to offer, you are within 30-55 minutes of all the activities. We had many a pool and air hockey game and really enjoyed the theatre room. Enough space for our family of 7 to spread out and not run into each other.

Phenomenal property!

  • 5 of 5

Upon first step in the home, our party of 9, and 3 generations, started giving high 5's because we knew this was a phenomenal home to stay in while visiting and experiencing the Disney area! My 3 grandsons, ranging in age from 12 to 18, were beyond pleased with the cinema and game rooms, and needless to say, the pool was a huge hit, especially at night, when it was lit. The accommodations were impeccable and the property was extremely clean and well maintained. The layout is awesome, giving everyone space to do their own thing or be part of the larger group. Linen supplies were beyond adequate, including the pool towels. Grocery shopping is so convenient, as is access to the highway. Our family did a theme park every other day utilizing the off day to try other attractions such as iFly- Indoor Skydiving and a trip to Downtown Disney in the evening. Both are a family MUST! Yes, July is hot, but there was a breeze and no one ever complained. Owner, Patricia, responded to all questions in lightening speed, so much so, that I sometimes forgot there was a time difference. Having a washer and dryer was a godsend for our family. It enabled us to pack light and wash often! The parks are about 20 minutes away. We did go to WDW at rope drop and left at noon, then returned to the home ( relaxed, showered, swam, napped, etc.) and then returned to the park around 6:00 to enjoy the park in the evening. Plan on staying here, you won't be disappointed!

A perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at various vacation rentals on both coasts for our annual family vacations. This home is, without a doubt, one of the best we've stayed at. Patricia, thank you for sharing your home with us and making this such a memorable and relaxing vacation!

The communication and arrangements with Patricia was friendly, fast, and efficient. Payment details and instructions were detailed and prompt. It just shows how organized the owners are about the care and management of this property. Location-wise, it's about 20 min from the Universal Studios and 30 min from the Disney resort. Grocery story (Walmart) is only about 1.5 miles away so the convenience is hard to beat.

The house itself was beautiful. We are family of 6 and there was plenty of room (we didn't even touch one of the bedrooms). It's one of the best lots in the gated community. There is no house directly behind you and only one house to the side (it was vacant) so time spent on the patio and pool were private and relaxing. My sons literally swam every day. The hot tub was welcome sight after a long day at the theme parks. Plenty of beach towels are provided as well. Vacation rental tip: pack half the amount of clothes and do laundry mid-vacation in the provided washer and dryer -- so much more convenient than packing away 10 days worth of clothes for us.

The bedrooms are beautifully furnished and comfortable -- that master en suite is huge. The kitchen is nicely equipped and plenty of dishes and silverware so you don't feel like you're constantly doing dishes. Cinema room? Yes! We watched a few movies in there and it was a blast.

Overall, this is a first class vacation rental and I highly recommend it.

Gated Community, welcoming and spacious

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at your home, the kids loved their rooms and of course the pool was a big success. Having the two master bedrooms on the main floor was great for our purposes, allowing nana her own space right off the pool area and no stairs to climb.My son had his own room at the front of the house meaning my daughter and her husband and 3 children had the full upstairs to themselves. Considering there were 7 people sharing one house at no time did we feel that we were on top of each other.

The theatre room got lots of use, and even when in use when the doors were closed you could not hear the surround sound playing. Having separate sitting room just off the kitchen allowed for family gathering to talk or just watch a show well over looking the pool area. Loved the kitchen with the bar seating for quick breakfast and all the equipment you need.

When not off to Disneyland or Lego World our time was spent in the pool. After a long day walking around the parks nice to come home and relax in the hot tub attached to the pool.

There were a few issues, but the owner was quick to responded to our problems, making them just a small inconvenience. I would highly recommend this home to my friends and family and would not hesitate to rent it again.

The small "pluses" that make the difference

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. Clean, quiet, safe, with great furniture and amenities, no neighbor in the back, this house was perfect for the big family! Et les petits extras? Une énorme quantité de serviettes de plage, du popcorn et des savons (lessive, vaisselle...) à notre arrivée, un distributeur de glaçons, des serviettes de bain en origami, des écrans plats dans toutes les pièces sans compter les salles de jeux et de cinéma. Merci Patricia!
