Our 4 bedroom, 3 full bath 'home away from home' is in the sought-after Solana Resort, which is a private, guard gated community only 15 minutes from Disney World. This 1600 sq ft open floor plan house has been designed to be comfortable, multi-functional and a colorful oasis for your Orlando vacation. Each bedroom has its own unique theme. Our Villa's name is reflected in the amazing artwork that adorns the walls of every room, showcasing Walt Disney's incredible vision that led to Disney World.

Front entrance/foyer. Just inside the front door are 2 paisley wingback chairs and game table for a quiet match of chess, checkers, etc. To your right is a hall tree & bench to sit down, take off your shoes and hang your bags or jacket from a day at Disney, other parks or shopping. Lift up the bench and you'll find it full of family board games. The marble topped wine bar sits under the cartoon map of Orlando and unique bird cage light, with assorted wine & beer glasses inside and 12 bottle cabinet to store your wine purchases. On top of the bar are books about the life of Walt Disney for your reading enjoyment.

Living room/dining area. When you are ready to relax at home move into the living space with 2 oversized rattan king chairs and leather sofa with matching cushions and pillows. The coffee table and barrel end table have plenty of room for your coaster and beverage; end lamps offer plenty of light if you want it. Sit down and get ready to enjoy the 50' Vizio 3d Smart TV and Blue-Ray DVD and Bose Solo sound system that will have you believing you are in the movie or show you are experiencing. A multitude of DVDs and books await you in the shabby-chic entertainment console. A sliding door leads to the patio/pool area. A remote controlled bamboo ceiling fan circulates the air conditioning throughout the seating and dining area.

Gaston gazes over the dining area in the print of 'Gaston's Tavern'. The distressed wood dining table seats 6, with leather side chairs and paisley cloth end chairs with a window view to the patio and pool. There is additional seating at the granite covered bar with 2 bar stools.

Kitchen. The kitchen is conveniently located next to the dining area, and is open to the entire great room. It has dark granite counters and oak cabinets, with all new appliances, including dishwasher, refrigerator with icemaker, and stovetop/oven with built-in microwave. The plentiful cabinets are full of stocked with every detail and convenience you will need.

'Woody Beach Wagon' En Suite bed/bath. Just down the hall from the kitchen on the front of the villa is this amazing bedroom with a queen cherry bed and en suite full bath with a tub & shower combination. It contains matching cherry night stands, and a 5 drawer dresser with a 42' flat screen HDTV. This private en suite retreat is ideal for your older child or a second couple. Every bedroom has a large closet with luggage racks for your convenience.

It has a tub & shower combo and linen closet. Every bath has linens and hair dryers, along with matching oak cabinets and dark granite counters.

Ye Olde Pirates' Quarters Bunkroom. Ahoy mateys !! This treasure of a bedroom is just a couple steps from the Mickey Mouse hall bath and is designed for the swashbuckling pirates in your family. It has rustic wood bunk beds, designed as a pirate ship with the ship's wheel on one end and the pirate mast at the other. It comes with a night stand and a 5 drawer dresser with a 32' HDTV. Completing the pirate theme are a hanging lantern (that doubles as a night light) and a full wall treasure map.

Mickey Mouse Silhouette Bedroom. You can't help but smile every time you enter this room !! This cheerful, colorful bedroom features 2 twin beds with Mickey Mouse bedding and a matching night stand. The 'Mickey' details abound, from the artful decals over the closet, the inspirational quote from Walt himself, to the custom painted canvas print that reminds you that 'a friend is waiting...'

About Alan or Kathryn

We looked at many houses/villas before we bought. We chose Solana Resort for many reasons. Most of all, we plan on living here full time someday.


Not all resorts that are gated have a 24/7 guard checking credentials.

*One Level

We loved the open concept floor plan for family & friends.

*Two Car Driveway

We did not want a parking lot like most townhouses have.

*2 En-suites

Perfect for family & friends.

*Pool size

We preferred not having a splash pool.

*Master Bath has a door to the pool deck

This is a handy feature to have, especially with children.

*Security System

Every home in the Solana Resort has one.


Unlike buying in a traditional neighbor, an association enforces rules, codes & keeps owners informed with important and useful information quickly.

The Solana Resort keeps up the grounds and is always looking to improve the amenities.

So, with that being said, not all Resorts are the same; especially if you're planning on living there someday.

Alan or Kathryn purchased this villa in 2013

Really satisfied

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this Villa for 5 days and we all were more then pleased. It was so nice and convenient to have some of the everyday necessities that we needed at the Villa without having to run out as soon as we got there and buy right away, travelling all day is tiring so we really appreciated that. The cleanliness of the Villa was number 1! A huge deal for us because our friends that were staying close by didn’t get so lucky like we did with choosing the perfect Villa. We couldn’t of asked for a better place to stay and would definitely return to the same place if we decide to come to Orlando again. :)

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this property! It was spacious for our family of 8 and the game room and pool, along with toys and games kept our kids entertained. The house was extremely clean and well decorated. The management company was very responsive to our needs. It was only a short drive to Disney and had all the needed stores within a 5-10 minute drive. The laundry was also a huge bonus. The Solana Resort was great and the security staff so friendly. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit.

Fabulous Villa So Close To Disney

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved this villa. It has everything an Orlando traveler could want. Close to everything, it is furnished "to the nines," and the "little touches" were fantastic and distinguished this villa from others in the Orlando Disney park area. It is 5 star plus !!!

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

We found the house was as described. The themed rooms and hidden surprises were a delight for the whole family. The location was excellent, as it was close to major attractions and shopping. The community was guarded 24 hours and it was quiet. This house is a perfect experience for those looking to explore the magic of the nearby parks. We enjoyed our stay so much that next time we will simply book the house and not bother staying on site at the park. The owners kept a line of communication open during our entire trip and were accessible. Our little princess smiled the entire stay!

All you need and more!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of six was a family and friends trip, and the layout of the villa worked really well for our two week stay. All we needed and more ... ample space, very clean and comfortable (especially the king size bed - memory foam!), and extremely well equipped. Games room (and washer/dryer) in the garage was awesome! We didn't get a chance to sample the Solana resort pool and facilities as we were too busy, but it looked great. The privacy screen on the pool is a nice touch, as the houses are close together. We parked two cars on the driveway, We found the villa location to be ideal for us, and everywhere was within reach without being crowded and in the middle of the chaos areas. We visited Busch Gardens (45 min), all of the Disney and Universal parks, and also made it out to three beaches (Clearwater - 1hr 50, Cocoa Beach - 1hr 35, St. Pete - 1 hr 40). It was easy to get to and from the parks (go early), just busy, so allow extra time to travel home! We also hit up the Florida Mall and International Outlet; neither of these are really close by, but they are easy to get to. We found a couple of little gems for fast food, just down the road, which on a long park day was what we wanted ...Mia Pizza is delicious and there's a couple of fish and chip shops close by. Publix supermarket has everything you need, but a little more expensive than Walmart which is a little further away. Booking the villa was super easy, and the owners are very responsive. We did need to contact the property management company the evening before we left and she was extremely helpful. All in all ... well recommended!
