Lake Buena Vista Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Designer Inspired/Less than 4 miles to Disney/Beautiful Furnishings/Wifi/

Shrek may have been an ogre, but this fabulously stylish, spacious Florida vacation home is anything but monstrous! Shreks is the epitome of comfortable Florida living, with high ceilings, and a sense of light and space throughout.

There are four good-sized bedrooms, with two twin rooms; ideal for those travelling with friends, or with groups of children. At Shreks, there’s also a firm focus on creating a social, laid-back ambiance, with open-plan living area and plenty of room to spread out and relax in.

Guests wishing to explore all the State’s fabulous theme parks will be delighted to know that this vacation villa is close to all the main attractions; and Disney World is only a five minute drive away. Likewise, should you want to go out for the evening, there are plenty of excellent restaurants, shops and bars in the near vicinity; and many of the area’s finest golf courses are only a short drive away.

In the Emerald Island Resort, you’ll find everything you need for a fun-filled Florida vacation, and all the facilities are free to use for the duration of your stay. There is a large community pool, complete with sun-loungers and convenient pool-side bar, plus a large clubhouse to relax in and make new friends. Kids will be kept entertained in the video arcade zone, and younger guests are sure to love the play area. If you feel like getting sporty during your time at Emerald Island, there are basketball, volleyball and tennis courts, and even a fitness centre on site.

Back at your Florida vacation home, you can expect a high standard of accommodation throughout. The living area is a real feature, with beautifully high ceilings and patio doors leading directly outside. Chill out with the family on the comfortable sofas, and watch a movie or two on the large multichannel television; which comes complete with DVD player. There’s even a Wii with fit-board and rock band guitar, which provides plenty of amusement for all the family. Thanks to the air conditioning, the entire house is pleasantly cool, no matter how hot it gets outside, and there is also a telephone and Wi-Fi connection, should you need to stay in touch with the people back home.

The living area also has a large dining table with seating for six, and the open-plan layout means that even those cooking in the kitchen won’t feel left out of the action.

In the kitchen area, you’ll find everything that you need for your stay, including oven with hob, microwave, dishwasher and large fridge-freezer. It’s also well-stocked with useful gadgets and appliances, including a coffee-maker, juicer and toaster, not to mention plenty of Disney characters! The kitchen also has a breakfast bar, which provides the perfect space for guests to enjoy the morning newspapers with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. If you need to do your laundry whilst away, you’ll be pleased to know that there is also a separate area with washer and dryer.

Upstairs, you’ll find two double rooms and two twin rooms at Shreks. The first of the master bedrooms features a generous king-sized bed, with polished, antique-style furniture. It also has its own private balcony and a large flat-screen television; ideal for watching late night movies with a loved one! For added convenience, it also has an en suite bathroom.

The second master bedroom is similarly decorated, with a nod to traditional, opulent design, and also features a television and en suite facilities.

Young children will be delighted by the Shrek-themed twin bedroom, which has bold green furniture, vibrant bedding, and all their favourite Shrek characters on the wall. For older guests, there is a further twin bedroom, tastefully decorated in soft shades of lemon.

The outdoor space at Shreks is no less pleasant, and there is a patio area with table and chairs, where you and your family can settle in the evening and enjoy the wonderful Florida climate.

We had a great time at Shrek’s Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

Hi Karen,

We had a great time at Shrek’s Sanctuary, The home was spacious, clean, well appointed and we felt very comfortable – home away from home. With four bedrooms (sleeping 8), 3 and a half bathrooms, ducted air conditioning, TV’s in all bedrooms as well as in the living room, everybody had their own space. There was a fully equipped laundry area (washing machine and tumble dryer) as well as a dishwasher in the kitchen. There were also small external patio’s off the dining area (leading on to lush lawns) and upstairs bedroom en-suite. The home is located in a secure Estate, overlooking a dam with lots of bird life, and close to the Clubhouse, pool and kids play area. An ideal family get away. Also only a 10 to 15 minute drive away from the Disney and other Theme parks. Highly recommended.

Kind regards, Darryl

Great house!!

  • 5 of 5

Great house!

We were a party of 5 - couple + 3 pre/teen kids - plenty of space for everyone, nice pool just across the lawn with an outdoors jacuzi wich made the delight of the kids.

Really close to the Disney theme parks a only an hour and a half from NASA.

Well furnished supermarket and lots of restaurants within a 5-10 min drive.

I will definitely have this house as benchmark on future rentals.

The Shrek house was a fantastic base to go home to at the end of a busy day at the theme parks

  • 5 of 5

Hi Karen

Sorry for my delay in response. We have only just arrived home after an amazing trip in the USA.

The Shrek house was a fantastic base to go home to at the end of a busy day at the theme parks. Our group of 6 had enough room to move and it was also fantastic to have the TVs in the bedrooms for the kids. Both master bedrooms were huge! We had plenty of room to unpack and "move in". The washer and dryer were also great to have. The kids also loved having the pool so close - but without being noisy to keep us awake at night.

Thanks also for your support prior to our stay. We really appreciated additional information you provided.

Although there was a wi-fi issue for a few days during our stay, that appeared to be a problem throughout the resort and was resolved.

We recommend the property for families looking for a home away from home close to the parks.

Many thanks

really enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our Stay at Shrek's Sanctuary in the Emerald Island Resort for January 14-18, 2016. The town home was perfect for us and was exactly as the website had explained. Four bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, very clean, close to the pool and furnished with everything you need. It is close to Walt Disney World Parks and ESPN Wide World of Sports (about 10-15 min. drive due to traffic). Will hopefully get to stay again.

Just as described!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Shrek’s Sanctuary – 5 adults. The rental was just as described on line! Very clean, plenty of linens and kitchen supplies /accessories. Only 10 minutes or so south of EPCOT with plenty of nearby restaurants and grocery options. We made numerous trips to the airport – 20 to 30 minutes depending on traffic. I highly recommend this rental or any other with Florida Premier Rentals. The Gill’s, Live Oak, Florida
