About Karsten Rehnisch

Starting in 1990 we did our annual family vacations in Florida. We felt in love with this beautiful place on earth. That was the reason why we returned year by year. In 2010 we bought our first house in the Disney/Orlando area (HomeAway listing #291024). We are still excited about our retirement since we want to enjoy most of this time in one of our houses.

Karsten Rehnisch purchased this villa in 2012

Why Karsten Rehnisch chose Solana

We spent most of our Florida vacation in the Disney/Orlando area, and it was so nice that we decided to buy a single family house with pool in the Disney area. It was important for us to stay always in a gated community. We stayed in several resorts and for vacations in a single family home the Solana Resort was perfect for us. It is a private luxury gated community close to Disney World, Universal Studios, Legoland and Sea World and fits to the requirements even for adults as well as for families. This resort is only a short drive to Orlando’s attractions and just blocks away from various premium shopping outlets. You can enjoy all good things just a few minutes away: gourmet dining, fine art, great fashion, relaxing recreation, first-class golfing and fishing and exciting entertainment.

What makes this villa unique

The large west facing pool (pool and hot tub requires a separate fee to heat) with a huge pool deck is a must for those who want to benefit the full sun during the day and late evening. There are also the other homes far behind enough so you will have privacy. We bought this beautiful home in March 2012 and we updated it with new furniture in May 2013 individually selected by us. The new furniture and decoration gives all rooms our own personal loving touch. All of our guest enjoyed and will enjoy in the future the home as much as we do.

The house was very nice. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need. The needs were very comfotable except the twin mattresses in one room do need replacing. We did pay for a grill but none was there. The management company said they do not furnish grills and that we would need to contact VRBO to request a refund. The one issue we had was with the WiFi. It kept dropping and reconnecting which was an issue for us as we were traveling with children who expected to be connected. Called the manag

Owner's Response: Please allow us to give some comments about this review. According to the listing details we don't provide any grill to our guests. Logically we don't charge any fees for a grill to our guests. We just provide our guests a contact where the guests can rent a grill on their own behalf and we don’t have any information whether the guests have used this contact. All twin mattresses has been replaced by us with new ones in January 2017. And our property manager never received a call by this guests complaining about the internet service. The service was and is reliable and our manager would have been happy to assist our guests just in case that there will be an issue with the internet. And from our experience all issues with the internet are caused by malfunction and could be solved by our manager. But he has to been asked for assistance!

Exceptional Value

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently gathered here from around the country for an early Christmas/Disney holiday. This villa was perfect for our group. The seven of us had more than enough room in this large, cheerful place. The beds and furnishings were comfortable, and in good shape. The weather was cold, so we didn't use the attached pool. The community pool was lovely, and is very close to this villa, but we were very busy, and so had no time to enjoy it. The community employees were helpful and pleasant. We had a small problem with a broken fan, and the local property manager was very prompt with his response. There are restaurants nearby and shopping is handy too, and it was an easy drive to the airport and to Disneyland. I had occasion to communicate with the owner, who is not in the US, because I messed up the reservation payment, and I found the owner to be very prompt to reply and very patient and helpful in straightening out my snafu. All in all a very pleasant experience...

We loved the villa!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the villa and we had a wonderful time here. The house is perfect for a large family. There was plenty of space for everyone. It is well furnished and decorated so cute!

The Solana Resort was in a great location in a beautiful gated resort. The resort offer many activities for all generations.

The villa is spacious, very clean and offered us everything we need. The kitchen is well stocked, making it easy to make meals. All in all the house was well equipped including a lot of towels which make our stay comfortable.

The pool were perfect- large deck area and lots of sun to relax after long days!

The house was only about 30 miles from the airport and about 10 miles from Disney.

Easy check-in with friendly staff .The owner Karsten was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend this home to anyone who is looking for something to rent in the Disney area.

We will definitely stay here again!

Nice with a couple of exceptions

  • 3 of 5

Overall we enjoyed the place it was very well-kept except for the dust that was coming off of the top of the ceiling fans and the shades kept falling off on the sliding glass doors and they seem to have been taped with scotch tape previous to our arrive . Also we didn't think you had extra towels or washcloths until we had searched and found them in one of the children's rooms in the closet . The garbage cans outside were very dirty and smelled bad in the humidity. We would stay there again if these issues were addressed.

Owner's Response: We always do our best to keep our house clean and well maintained! The issue with the dust is direct related to the AC operation. We change the AC filters regularly but the dust on fans and on the blinds is tied to the continuous airflow of the AC. We clean the dust from the fans and AC regularly but even the next day after the cleaning shows first dust on the cleaned surfaces. To avoid any dust we have to shut down the AC what would definitely not be in the intention of all our other guests. All damaged blinds are and will be repaired with the related repair kit provided by the original blind manufactures. And all damaged blinds which can't be repaired will be replaced by new ones immediately. The closet with the towels is located in one of the bathrooms behind the bathroom door. Since the closet is a little bit tricky to find, we have posted notes in our house to guide our guests to this location. We are sorry that this guests have overlooked our notes. We will do our best to post it more clearly as we have it already done. And it is always the trash of the guests which smells out of the trash cans. And upon request it is possible to drop off heavy smelling trash in the dumpster located at the clubhouse. We offer to our guests two oversized trash cans just to have the chance to close the lid properly to avoid smelling since it is set by the HOA that all the trash cans have to be placed infront and on the edge of the garage door in the total resort.
