There is a pool 30 feet away, across the street with all services such as changing rooms, bathrooms and Jacuzzi. This pool is a lot quieter than the main pool at the clubhouse. This Villa is located close enough to the amenities for convenience, but far enough away for relaxing quietly on the balcony or a good night's sleep.

Amongst the amenities are nature trails for jogging and biking through the community’s natural woodland setting, volleyball, tennis and basketball courts; playground, two heated pools, Tiki bar, massage, jacuzzi, sauna, fitness center, cyber café and arcade.

Within a 10 minutes drive you will find several restaurants, horseback riding, helicopter rides, as well as the beautiful historic town of Celebration, which is a must see.

This location allows you to take advantage of all that the Orlando area has to offer. The local restaurants range from 'Kid Friendly' to adult dining. Need a day off from all of the excitement? One hour away is the Beach (East coast or West coast). Only one hour on RT4 and you could be at the Hard Rock Casino (Las Vegas style gambling). Make your vacation memorable, visit, enjoy, but most of all be comfortable. The new attraction park LegoLand is located 55 minutes away.

The staff at the Concierge Desk will be happy to help you with your vacation needs, such as information and directions to restaurants and golf courses, discount coupons and park tickets, as well as transportation.

I am confident that you will have a vacation experience that will exceed your expectations.

Our rates are competitive, and reflect the quality of our home. Our home is very clean and well cared for by a small, family-owned management company that takes great pride in their work.

Since my family uses the home frequently, I am looking for guests that will treat my home as their own and return again-and-again.

Great Villa ~ Beautifully decorated home ~ Very comfortable King bed in Master ~ Cute Disney room for the kids ~ Felt very safe in security gated community! Anything that needed to be corrected was very quickly accomplished by the Management Company. Owner is available and really cares for your comfort. Would stay again, if available when we were needing a rental.

Montreal family

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a long weekend at this property. We were 5 (two under 10, one teenager and two adults). I can strongly recommend this property to anyone looking for a short or long stay in Orlando. The property is clean, bright and conveniently located close to Disney and other local attraction. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and would definitely rent here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write up about your stay. We maintain our home to the highest standards so that our guests can have a memorable vacation. Also, our resort is located so close to Disney that it allows guests to go to the parks in the morning,, come back for a rest in the afternoon at the pool and back out in the evening for the numerous Disney fireworks or night shows. Perfect for families.

Bugs and AC Doesn't work.. READ all the reviews

  • 1 of 5

The house looked well cleaned however when we arrived we saw a very large cockroach in the laundry room which is located in the middle of the building. After we told the owner that we wanted to leave because we did not want to bring them home with us they refused to refund our money and said that we must of left the door open and it came in. Even though we noticed it 10 minutes after arriving in a room that was in the center of the building and the door was shut. And we didn't leave the door open. I have pictures of it and the owner never denied it wasn't there after we left.

Also the air conditioning system is highly unusual, there is no note of this on the VRBO listing but you are NOT allowed to lower it below 75. If you do then you have to pay a repair person to fix it yourself. She was also pretty rude saying we didn't have experience with renting houses and its normal.

So we decided to leave and request a refund which the owner DENIED. Even though we were there not more than 30 minutes.

This happened 3 weeks ago and we didn't even leave bad feedback until the owner decided to leave bad feedback for us? Even after taking all our money for a house that was not even lived in so now we are telling our "story"

Owner's Response: Since we bought our villa 4 years ago, we had over 120 families and 53 reviews with 5 stars ratings. A few days, after your stay, we had two families that stayed in our home and they wrote two 5 stars reviews. One family even extended their stay because they loved our place so much. How interesting!! We have one returning family that stays at our villa right now and they love it. You booked with us 2 weeks before your arrival, we then sent you the Welcome package with all the instructions. When you paid, you accepted our Terms and conditions. Your RESPONSIBILITIES as a guest was to read the package. On November 13th, you wanted to extend your stay with us to save on cleaning fees but then you changed your mind. A few days before your arrival, you wanted to check in early on two occasions but then you changed your mind twice. When you arrived at the villa, you complained about having to put a load of laundry upon your check out, you also complained about our Terms and conditions being too extensive, you then wanted to lower the AC temperature to 70 degrees. As explained to you, the manufacturer of our 2014 AC, recommends for the warranty, no lower than 74 but we allowed you to set 72, but below that, we mentioned that you were responsible for the possible compressor damage. Nothing unusual about that. ALL IN THE WELCOME PACKAGE. Funny, no signs of the dead bug yet. Then you complained that you had to get your lap top to access your door code which I sent you on 3 occasions by emails. Basically you did not like our rules and instructions..which you should have read by now...then and only then and a few hours later after you went for supper according to your email, there was a dead bug on the floor which you left there in a hurry stating that our house was infested. YOU NEVER FOLLOWED OUR PROCEDURES AND NEVER CALLED OUR MANAGER TO INVESTIGATE. You just left and wanted a refund. Since you did not follow our Terms and conditions, you were not entitle to a refund. You mention that we were rude, we just answer your multiples DEMANDS with the same tone that you used. Our manager inspect before every guest arrivals and no bugs were found. We use our house with our 3 children quite often. My spouse is nurse and I am a professional pilot, our standards are very high and we expect the same from our guests..the values that we expect from from our guest are Honesty and Respect. I agree with you on one thing is that you will never come back to our villa.

Nice place good rate

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two nights for the Magic Kinhdom Christmas party. 4 adults and 2 children. The place was clean and very secure. 24 hr gate guard was nice, the last few places we stayed had suspicious characters around but not here. The beds were the only negative for this condo, we slept in the queen bed and it was only slightly more comfortable than a pull out couch. The pillows were flat and hard, my wife rolled up a sheet to try to get support. But hey it's Disney you are so tired you could sleep just about anywhere. I would recommend this place just consider bringing your own pillows if you are driving.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Our beds are less than 5 years old. We also have extra pillows with differents sizes in the closet. I wish you would have told us so that we could improve your sleeping quality. We always encourage our guests to contact us if they are not happy about something. This is the first time that somebody complains about the beds ot the pillows. We will look it up for future guests. Thank you again.
