|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Welcome to "Mickey's Tree House", which we have carefully selected for its excellent location and superb features! The villa has been furnished with "up-market" quality furniture, fittings, and curtains, not the usual contract furniture pack found in many rental villas, as we use the property ourselves for vacations. Look closely at the photo of the front of the villa. To the left of the door the "Mickey Tree" is there to welcome you himself!
We have visited Orlando numerous times during the last 15 years, with young children, adult daughter and son, and our elderly parents. Initially we rented villas on the US 27 Corridor at the western end of 192. However we found that these villas (available through many United Kingdom tour operators and numerous other private individuals), whilst generally well equipped, lacked the "homely feel" that we wished and were a little far out from the various attractions. The traffic on the 192 between I-4 and US-27 can be extremely congested at times.
Our SOUTH-facing swimming pool is a focal point of the villa. It backs onto a conservation area, no neighbors at the rear! and a small lake is accessed to the right of the rear garden. The pool screening is white, which does not darken the pool area, as sometime occurs with the brown and black screen structures. The main and spa pools are electrically heated The pool has a removable safety fence.
A travel crib, high chair and stroller will be provided free should you require them. (Villas rented through many Villa Holidays Companies charge $35 per week for a crib). Three of the bedrooms have queen-size beds and one bedroom (#2) has twin single beds. There are televisions, linked to the main cable system, in the Master Bedroom and Bedroom #4.
Our Villa is fully-equipped with every imaginable requirement provided, even an electric kettle for our British guests. Just arrive with your toothbrush. A large television is provided in the main lounge, with cable channels available, plus DVD. The entertainment system is connected to a "Surround Sound System" and is also available in the pool area by a separate speaker system.
After a long day having fun at the "Attractions" why not relax in the full sized corner bath tub or the double person shower that has benches installed. Alternatively soak yourself in the bubbling water of the spa bath.
There is a fully automatic washing machine, tumble dryer in the separate Laundry Room, a dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator-freezer with ice making, and full range cooker in the kitchen, plus many other supporting utilities.
For the safety conscious there is a full intruder alarm system, security lights are timer operated and the pool has a removable safety fence.
It is our aim to make your holiday as comfortable and carefree as possible. On arrival you will find the Villa freshly cleaned and laundered, and all beds will be made up. Just move in and enjoy your Holiday!

Just a quick note (I'll get back to you later after we get organized from the trip). I believe we left 2 items behind, they are Matchbox/Disney race cars, one is Goofy and the other I believe is Pluto. They might be shoved in one of the couches, that's the last I remember them or in one of the front bedrooms??? If you find them, can you PLEASE send to me and I will reimburse you. It was a gift Christian picked out for his birthday and really enjoyed...
We had a minor panic. As I said Alfie found the cars and decided to play with them (he now has 4 of his own) and then we couldn't find one until this morning when we were checking out and tidying up.
I have wrapped them and put them in a padded mailer envelope. Will post them to you on Monday.
Sorry that Alfie liked them and it cost you money in the long run. PLEASE tell him THANK YOU for finding them I greatly appreciate it. I wish I could've met you, after talking via email for so long I feel we know each other.
I WILL DEFINATELY recommend your home to EVERYONE I know who is interested and will consider your rental again in the future. Thank you for sharing your BEAUTIFUL home with us. The kids really enjoyed their time there, I wish the last 2 days didn't rain but next time will be more sunny. Thanks again.
Recommended for families with small children & pets (although we didn't end up being our dogs) The safety gate around the pool added to piece of mind. We enjoyed our stay and created many new memories. Centrally located to all of Orlandos attractions!
First and foremost the owners of this home were a dream to work with. They were very responsive to the many questions I had and offered information regarding attractions, grocery stores and restaurants.This is a very large older 4 bedroom home with 2 full bathrooms.One bedroom has twin beds in a Disney theme with a small dresser and nightstand and the other three have queen size beds with dressers and two nightstands. The guest bathroom is in the middle of the first two bedrooms and is the standard tub, toilet and sink. The master bathroom is very large with a garden tub, large shower and a two sink vanity. The walk in closet in the master bedroom is massive (you could probably fit another bed in it lol). The dining room is huge with a large table with 6 chairs. The kitchen is very large with more dishes, pots and pans and cutlery than you could possibly use. It also contains a stove, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher along with two toasters, coffee maker and electric tea pot. There is also a small dining table with 4 chairs. Off of the kitchen you will find the washer and dryer with an entrance into the garage. The garage contains a pool table and foosball table along with things like a stroller and highchair should you need it. The living room is very spacious with a large flat screen TV. It has a large heavy sofa and love seat with side tables. Off the living area and bedroom (not the master) is the entry to the pool area. The pool is screened and has a hot tub. It also has a child safety screen. There were inflatables galore along with a baby float. Needless to say the pool was a big hit with the younger kids. There is also a dining table with 6 chairs and lounge chairs around the pool. There are safety locks on both doors leading to the pool. The pool looks out on a wooded area. Walking from the pool area you will find a small lake that you can fish in. There was a small alligator in it which of course brought screams from the kids lol. There are flat screen tv's in all the bedrooms with cable and wireless internet. Lastly the home has a two car driveway and is in a well maintained subdivision. Although this home is older it has been maintained very well. I would stay here again in a “New York minute” and hope it is available the next time we visit Orlando. It has more than enough room for a large family of 8.Thank you Geoff for allowing us to stay at your home
This house was just perfect for our family vacation! The house itself is spacious, clean and bright and contains everything we needed. The location was amazing, just minutes from all the parks. We truly felt at home and will certainlly be returning on our next trip. Thanks Geoff for all the helpful information you provided prior to our trip and a special thanks to Suzanne and Peter for being so patient and wonderful!
Staying in this home was wonderful! It is close to the parks and everything else you might want on vacation. This house is clean, has great open space, a huge dining table for everyone to sit together, nice furniture and having the 4 bedrroms was perfect. It was so nice after a tiring day to come "home" and refresh ourselves in the pool or jacuzzi before retiring. Geoff is very personable and will give you great advice on the parks and other thing that he and his family have enjoyed in the area! He has a book on the counter when you arrive, informing you of everything you need to know about the house and then some. Thank you Geoff for making us feel like a guest and not just a renter. On our next trip to Disney we plan on staying here!
We DID NOT stay at this location due to a schedule conflict; however, we wanted to leave a positive comment just the same because the homeowner was kind enough to offer us names of other similar houses in the area that met our needs. Given Mr. Fowler's generosity of nature with his time, I would feel comfortable recommending him and his home to anyone needing a Disney-area vacation villa. Thank you, Geoff!!
This place is AWESOME!! I did alot of research trying to find just the right home for our vacation. We recently returned from a fabulous two week trip to Mickey's Tree House. The house is beautiful and had everything we needed for a perfect stay. The location couldn't have been any better. Best of all Geoff is wonderful to deal with. I feel like I know him personally after all the emails and help he gave us while planning our trip. He even called us at Mickey's Tree House while we were there to make sure everything was to our liking. I would recommend this home to everyone planning a disney vacation. I can't wait to start planning our next trip to Mickey's Tree House.
To Geoff, thank you again for all your help!
