Solana Villa Rental Photos and Description

A 4 Bedroom, 3 Full Bath Villa In A Safe Gated Resort Community

'A Tribute To Walt Disney' Villa

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.

'Mickey Mouse' hall bath. Your children won't be able to resist washing their hands and taking a bath in this 'funtastic' bathroom that is clearly dedicated to the mouse who started it all !!! 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...'

'Tommy Bahama' Master En suite bed/bath. Everything in this tropical master bedroom oasis is designed to help you 'relax,' which is Tommy Bahama's motto.

Why Alan or Kathryn chose Davenport

Proximity to Disney World, theme parks and tourist attractions

Solana Resort amenities and security features

We looked at ALL the other resorts including the ones closer to some of the local attractions, but opted for the private full sized patio, bigger swimming pool, screen enclosure, we preffered the separate driveway (instead of parking lot in front of our villa) & two car garage game room

After all the other properties we looked at, we were the most impressed by the way the Solana Resort Home Owners Assoc. prides themselves on maintaining their homes and properties.

What makes this villa unique

So Great, We Visited Again!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Alan and Kathryn's wonderful property with our children and parents. We stayed here in the past and were thrilled that it was available for our stay this time around. This property was perfect for our family with plenty of space to hang out together or relax on our own when needed. The pool at the house was a favorite for the kids, but the resort pool was also a fun way to spend an afternoon. The house was stocked with everything we needed including a stroller, toys, books, and movies for the kids which saved us a lot of luggage space!

Alan and Kathryn were responsive prior to booking, during our stay, and after we left. In fact, while there, Alan alerted us to a potential cable issue in the area. It was clear to me that he wanted to be sure our stay was enjoyable without any surprises.

I would highly recommend this property to others and hope that we can return again in the future.

Beyond Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We loved this villa! The house was exceptionally clean we were all happy to return there after a long day at the parks.

The owners are great and promptly responded with any concerns before and during our stay. They emailed/texted the day of our arrival to check-in with us to make sure everything was in order. Staying at this home away from home was beyond amazing and we will be returning. Not one person in our group had any complaints. We were able to enjoy home cooked meals together (something we couldn’t do if staying in a hotel), everyone had room to hang out without being on top of one another, and our downtime was relaxing.

It was a good decision to have the pool heated, it was worth the extra money. There were three children included in our group and arriving back to the house after a day at the park was always a treat because they immediately got into the swimming pool and swam for several hours. The game room was a great entertainment for them as well as all the Solana Resort amenities.

The location was convenient. There's a Walmart Super Store within minutes of the house for our groceries.

We really enjoyed our stay. The place looks even better in reality than in the pictures. We can definitely recommend the property.

Disney Delight

  • 5 of 5

It sure was hard to return to Michigan after our fabulous vacation. The house was the perfect retreat from all of the madness of a long day at the parks (about a 20 min drive, with spring break traffic). Everything was as described and from the moment we arrived we all felt right at home. Our kids (4 under 7) couldn't get enough of the pool and the game room. The option to enjoy the larger clubhouse pool was very nice as well. We spent a day camped out in a cabana listening to music from the tiki snack bar and enjoying the Florida sun. The home was the perfect layout for us, providing privacy for all, but not too spread out, so we could keep an eye on our littles. I couldn't have been more pleased, and the owners Alan and Kathryn were a pleasure to work with. We look forward to returning someday soon!

Beautiful Villa Planned with Care

  • 5 of 5

We've recently returned from five nights in this villa. I would like to share my thoughts and compliments, and to try to answer questions or provide little nuggets of information you may have as you seek out a place to stay with your family. If you've seen the photos and read the other reviews, you already know that this home is a gem. Walking inside and spending time here confirms that and more. This home is professionally decorated and exceptionally clean. Every detail adds to its charm. The kids couldn't decide which awesome room they wanted to sleep in. The pool was crystal clear. The owners have invested in this property and it is easy to see that.

We were a family of 4 traveling with 2 kids, age 3 and 10. The location was great. While we didn't go to any Disney parks, we did go to the area frequently. The home sits 5-10 minutes from I-4, dependent on traffic. I'd say it was about 10 miles or 20 minutes to get most parks barring big accidents. It was an easy 30 minute drive to LEGOLAND. There is a Publix a few miles away and plenty of opportunities for dining. The resort is gated with friendly 24 hour security. The home sits in the middle of the resort- about a 5 minute walk to the club house, and away from all of the busier roads. Some houses in this development back directly to a busy road.

We flew into the area and were pleased to see that we really needed to pack or buy very little. There was a bed rail and plastic dishes for our 3 year old. While we didn't need it, anyone traveling with a baby would have everything they needed- pack and play with extra sheets, high chair, even baby toys. Both my 3 and 10 year old were thrilled with the treasure chest of assorted toys and books in the pirate room. These really enhanced our stay, especially on the mornings we stayed in. They also really enjoyed the game room, especially my older son. We did request a heated pool; in February it was a very smart decision. It certainly made it swimmable. The clubhouse pool did not appear to be heated. It was not icy cold, but certainly not a temperature I would enjoy swimming in. We did utilize the clubhouse playground. We had a movie night in and enjoyed our first experience with an in-home 3d movie. The boys say it was one of the big highlights of their trip.

I wish I had more characters to share additional praise and tips, but I'm out of space!
