Family Disney Vacation

  • 3 of 5

We loved the layout of the house and enjoyed the space, location to Disney, and the pool. We did have cockroaches and had to call the property management which was not resolved for two days. They do spray every month as their process, but apparently when home is vacant and the water is not run down the drains the bugs do come up. We did not see anymore after they came to spray. Home is very nicely decorated but needs a little tender loving care. The family had a SUPER good time.

Perfect Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived home from a fabulous family vacation with my in-laws. 4 families, 8 adults and 5 children. This house was perfect for such a large group as it offered enough space for all of us to gather together, and again enough space for everyone to have their own little corner to escape to. The furnishings were plush and comfortable and waking up in these beds was like waking up at home. The children (and adults) especially enjoyed the pool and tub. After spending long days at the theme parks it was perfect to come home and take a refreshing dip. I would definitely return to this property and recommend it to anyone looking for the perfect place to stay.

Beautiful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home! Lots of space and very nicely decorated. Feels very much like home. It is stocked with most everything you need. The pool and hot tub were a great draw for us and it was much cheaper than staying on Disney property. We got it heated and really enjoyed our outdoor family time. The neighborhood is very nice and everyone was very helpful. The owner was very easy to talk with and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend staying here. Thanks again! Happy New Year!

Best Orlando Vacation by Far !!

  • 5 of 5

Traveled to Orlando for Spring Break to escape the cold & snow of the midwest. Have always stayed on Disney property or hotels in the past. Instead decided this time would rent this house with friends & their kids. We all had a blast !! Was happy we had paid a little extra for pool heat cause the kids lived in there. Also brought my mother in law who enjoyed her private ground floor suite as she can't climb steps well. We saved lots of money cooking our own meals in the spacious kitchen & using the outdoor grill. It was definately a home away from home & so close to everything we wanted to see & do. Luk is a great host & answered our calls promptly!!
