This villa was great!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in Mickey's Crib for three weeks, and what a great experience it was! The conservation area to the back is really something! It brings all the wildlife so close to you! We enjoyed watching our 'resident Hawk' who perched in the nearby palm tree at least three times a day, every day that we were there. Along with three, very tuneful, red birds (can't remember their name), but they were beatiful.

In short, we have holidayed in Orlando 14 times now and have never got bored of the place. You can do as much or as little as you like, and this villa compliments that perfectly. If you want to go the parks, they are really close by. For example, it took us 8 minutes to get from Disney's Magic Kingdom carpark to the villa! It was surprisingly close. Every other park is within 20/25 minutes (ie universal, seaworld etc) Being so close means you can go to the parks early, return mid afternoon, when the it is at it's hottest, for a dip in the pool and some food, then return for the evening. It's that close!!!

The management company were excellent, they answered some questions for us, due to our naivity, and were only too happy to help!

In conclusion, if you are looking for a family villa, with a lovely surrounding, close to the all the parks..........look no further, this one fits the bill!

Almost forgot, you can see Disney's magic Kingdom fireworks from the pool deck which was a great bonus.

Thankyou Denise.

Looking forward to re-booking in 2014 already.

Great Villa Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Mickeys Crib last week.

What a lovely villa, lots of room, lots of rooms, well decorated and furnished and a fabulous pool.

We stayed with my mother and mother in law, and our 5 year old daughter.

needles to stay prizing my daughter from the pool and the wildlife was difficult.

The location is excellent, if disney is your main focus (going to animal Kingdom Sherberth road takes you straight to the front gate)

All dealings with Denis and the management agents were prompt and clear.

would highly recommend anyone going on an Orlando vacation to book mickeys Crib.

We had a wonderful holiday and made some great memories

Visit to Mickeys Crib

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely villa and location. We stayed the last two weeks of May 11. The weather was mid 90’s and only rained the last day. An extra bonus was watching the shuttle – from about 50 miles – on the first day.

The attraction of the villa was the pool facing the conservation area and not being overlooked. We had a daily visit from a lovely red cardinal whos song was magnificent. Plenty of other wildlife from herons, egrets and a large raptor soaring above on the thermals. At night the different croaking was like a band !!

The pool faced north so you had the sun all day. This was a joy on returning from the parks and no heating was required. An extra delight was one night watching the fireworks from Disney.

Shops were literally a few minutes away with Disney only a few more, Formosa is one of the closest communities. With the short cut to Animal Kingdom this saved a lot of time queuing on the 192. The I4 again was close by and easy for Universal and Busch Gardens and all the shopping malls.

A big thanks to Denise who answered all our emails before during and after our holiday.

I would recommend this villa to anyone. We will certainly be booking again when we return in a couple of years.

We stayed at this villa for 3 weeks in April/ May 2011 and thought it was wonderful. The location is ideal, right near Formosa Gardens with its fair selection of restaurants (Outback and Red Lobster in particular!).

The pool faces north onto a conservation area and this was ideal - the pool was in the sun all day and the covered alcove stayed in the shade. The local wildlife was entertaining too - we saw lizards, a snake, herons, egrets, Sandhill Cranes, bluejays, a hummingbird, a Gopher tortoise and other (as yet undetermined) species of birds.

The location is ideal for Disney too, in fact you can barely get closer for a pool home.

The other big plus was the actual layout. It was perfect for two families because it had an upstairs with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms; and the downstairs with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. This meant when we stayed, we had the downstairs and our friends had the upstairs so it gave us all some degree of privacy.

We will certainly look to stay here again next year if it's available and we can recruit another family!
