Erica Murphy and Jenny Silvus invested in Regal Palms as an alternative to retirement savings. We have not regretted our decision. We love it at Regal Palms and the area is just what we were looking for. As sisters, we work as a team to ensure you enjoy your vacation. Erica handles bookings and paperwork. Jenny handles Regal Palms. Our wonderful management company has been very responsive and reliable for almost 7 years.

Regal Palms is in Polk County so, it is not part of the over-development of Kissimmee. It is quiet yet an easy drive to all the area attractions and the airport. We often forego the parks for a day at the pool. Each morning while there we walk around the golf course, visit the fitness center, take a dip in the pool. In the evening we enjoy happy hour around the pool. It is just such a lovely setting. Then we walk over to Applebee's for a snack. It's so convenient.
We enjoy being able to vacation in privacy. If we want to grill, have friends over, entertain the grandchildren, we can do all that in our spacious town home. We love it. The golf course and tennis courts are across the street in Highland Preserve and we have the amenities of the Monkey Joe's, salon, spa, fitness center, restaurant, tiki bar, pools, etc.
Out trip was very enjoyable, although what was a bit cumbersome was having to check in first with the management company (not as friendly as you would expect) to pick up the keys and then check into the Palms Resort and then finally arrive to the condo. With two small children that was a bit too much. The condo was average. It did have items such as pots, pans, utensils etc but they were low grade and it made it hard to cook a nice meal without it all being stuck at the bottom of the pots and pans. Also, make sure you plan to stock up on everything from napkins, toilet paper, sharp knives for cutting meats and a decent cutting board. The cutting boards that were provided were dirty having food still stuck on them. Beds were low grade and noise getting in and out of them.
The positives were the pool area in the complex. Also the condo has a washer and dryer, again small and basic but they did the job. Our goal was to visit Disney World and we did. It was a great family trip although next time we would probably spend a bit more for a nicer place closer to Disney or stay on Disney Property.
It was great stay for the most part. The are a few things were an issue. One was the ceiling fans were noisy and out of balance and need some adjustment. We did find one of the dinner plates in the cupboard had left over food dried on it, and not a small amount either, it covered nearly half the plate. And the freezer did not work properly and ice cream we bought turned to a milkshake consistency and we had to toss it out.
We did talk to the property manager and he was very nice to work with and said he would deal with things immediately.
Overall we were pretty happy, especially for the price and the amount of space we had.
We stayed at this location during the holiday break and it was just great. The house is very clean and big enough to accommodate us with our 4 children. We really enjoyed the short distance to Disney and also the grocery store and pharmacy within walking distance. Erica answered all our questions and made the rental process very simple. We recommend this house to residents outside the U.S.
Nous avons séjourné à cette maison lors des vacances de Noël 2012-13 et c'était tout simplement génial. La maison est très propre et bien assez grande pour nous accueillir avec nos 4 enfants. Ça ne prend que 15 à 20 minutes pour se rendre à n'importe quel parc de Disney et il y a une pharmacie et une épicerie à quelques minutes de marche. Erica a répondu à toutes nos questions et a rendu le processus de location très simple. Nous recommandons définitivement cette maison aux résidents du Québec et du Canada.
I stayed at this location for a week (April 26-May 3, 2011)with my daughter and a friend. The rates were great, the description of the property is perfect and Erica was wonderful to work with in setting up the reservation. She really made the whole process simple. The staff at the resort were all very friendly and the resort was kept clean. We really enjoyed that the pool was not right outside our door, but only a short distance to walk - maybe 5 min. We will definately return to this location when we go back!
This is a really nice condo, brand new with plenty of room and a full kitchen if you want to cook or snack. There's also a huge pool complex and exercise room on the property. It's just far enough out to be away from the traffic and in a quiet area AND at a much more reasonable price! It really is an easy 15-minute drive to get to the big brand name amusement parks when you want to be there, and a wonderful place to chill out between those long days in the hot sun. Very clean and well-maintained. I highly recommend it! Can't beat the value!
