The living area is beautifully tiled and boasts two comfortable sofas and a modern coffee table.

The dining room, which is situated next to a large bay window, has a number of pretty plants, adding life and color to the room.

Bedroom 2 has a double bed with TV, while bedroom 3 has two single beds. All rooms are fitted with ceiling fans, which will help you to remain cool during the summer months.
The covered patio next to the private pool is equipped with a table and chairs along with two sun loungers. A view of the conservation completes this area, making it a truly peaceful place to cool off after a long day.
Thousand Oaks vacation home rental community is one of the most peaceful and secluded developments. This exclusive area is appropriately named as the villas are surrounded by beautiful woodland conservation with a multitude of very old majestic oaks and pines. Another unique feature of Thousand Oaks is that the plot sizes are much larger giving you a feeling of peace and seclusion. It has several natural, deep-water lakes, the largest of which is just over 40 acres and teeming with fish and other aquatic wildlife. Woodland walks, fishing and wildlife watching are favorite pursuits. Thousand Oaks is situated south of Walt Disney World on Ronald Reagan Parkway and is 10 minutes from Highway 192 and 2.5 miles from Exit 58 of I-4.
When you are ready to see the sights, Celebration is a very short distance away and is a “must” while staying in Orlando. You will enjoy the quaint shops and restaurants. Also, take a short drive thru the community to see the unique “Disney-themed” houses and admire the landscapes. Champions Gate is only 2 miles from Thousand Oaks with its world famous championship golf course designed by Greg Norman (there are several golf courses within a 10 minute drive.) There you will find a shopping district with a petrol station, bank, supermarket, and a vast array of restaurants for any taste. Of course, you are only a short distance away from US Highway 192 which has many unique souvenir shops, miniature golf, flea markets and one-of-a-kind restaurants. There is something for everyone all within a few minutes of your front door!

My family and I were visiting Florida for a dance competition in Champions Gate. We rented a property in Thousand Oaks for 1 week, Friday to Friday. Very easy to reserve online and customer reps from IPG were very helpful. After making the reservation, we needed to check in a day early. The property was rented out so the IPG rep sent me hotels in the nearby area. Check in time was 4 PM, they did allow us to check in about an hour early. Great location. Nearby grocery store and easy access to I4. About 15-20 minutes to Disney and a short drive to Orlando. The home was a 4 bedroom home and very spacious. We were traveling with our 3 kids. Decor and home was a bit dated but did the job. While unpacking the day we arrived we did see a roach in the kitchen. No bug spray at property so we purchased some and sprayed the kitchen. Home was very warm when we arrived, took several hours to cool down. Not able to put AC below 72, but each room had ceiling fans which helped keep it cool. TV's in bedrooms were small box TV's and 1 bedroom did not have a TV. House did have most common kitchen items needed. Pool in the backyard, some floats were provided. Patio furniture a bit dated as well. We did get a small dead frog in the pool towards the end of our stay. Not sure if it was our job to get out or not but there was no pool cleaning service while we were there. There was a ceiling fan outside, but did not work. On Wednesday night, we saw 3 more roaches. The following day I called and spoke to the "House Manager". He asked me if I wanted to get the outside exterminated. Didn't really apologize, but what are you going to do at that point? We ended up leaving a night early needless to say. This was our first time renting a house while traveling, I thought the price was good compared to 5 of us sitting in one hotel room for a week. I guess you get what you pay for? I have to give it two stars for the roach issue...I am TERRIFIED of roaches!
