"A Whole New World ...."

  • 5 of 5

Whether you spend the day at the parks, shopping, dining, or enjoying one of the many attractions Orlando has to offer, it's a whole new world when you enter the door of this luxurious Disney home. My two children, husband, and I spread out and enjoyed the amenities and space this wonderful home offers. After a busy day, the kids enjoyed swimming in the beautiful pool, and we often ate breakfast and snacks poolside under the covered lanai. For the kids fun, there are several floats and noodles on hand, and the play park is just a short walk from the house.

We found the drive to the parks to be relatively quick and easy. Also, close to this quiet neighborhood is a Super Target, WalMart, pharmacy, and chain restaurants as well as more unique family owned eateries. We liked the homemade ice cream at Squeezed. Very nearby is Sunday's, a British restaurant/pub with great fish and chips. Mia's Pizza offers a great thin crust pizza as well as an awesome chef salad. Both establishments offer indoor/outdoor seating. The surrounding area offers something for everyone to enjoy. There is mini golf, hair and nail salons, and as my kids noticed, an abundance of gift shops. We drove the hour and a half to Daytona one morning and toured the speedway and easily drove to the beach and parked. The kids spent 2 hours enjoying the surf and sand.

This listing description was accurate in all of its details. The home was very clean and well maintained with excellent customer service and accommodations provided by the owner and manager. I would book again and definitely recommend others to look no further and just reserve this property for your next travel stay. We made great memories here to be treasured forever.

Many heart felt thanks to the owner and manager!

Fantastic Orlando Villa

  • 5 of 5

An exceptionally clean and very well appointed villa. Very close to all local amenities and 20 minutes from Disney parks. A very safe and quiet gated community. The owners go over and above to provide exceptional service to people who stay at their home, including a complimentary bottle of wine on arrival. All fixtures and fittings are as shown in the photographs. We had a fantastic stay at this villa and would not hesitate to stay again when we return to Orlando.

Best Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fabulous stay at the Be Our Guest Villa. We will never stay in a hotel again when visiting Disney World! The Villa was clean, warm, and inviting, and we especially enjoyed the Disney-themed decor. Everything we needed was right there for our use. My family loved using our own swimming pool whenever they wanted. And the gang also made use of the awesome game room. My favorite activity was breakfast on the lanai each morning. We felt safe in the gated community. Lorrie makes you feel welcomed the minute you walk through the door. We can't wait until we return next year!

Perfect winter get away !! Stayed from February 1- march 7 2017

  • 5 of 5

We just spent our second 5 week retreat in this awesome villa. Lorrie the owner and Tammy the manager are outstanding to work with. They quickly respond to emails and text to take care of anything you would need. After our second stay you can see the upgrades the owners have made. We have stayed in many villas over the years and this has been the best. If you ask to have the pool heated it will be heated to a more than comfortable temperature. Many other villas barley turn the heat on. The house is immaculately clean and well equipped. Don't worry about beach towels there are plenty. You won't need anything but your clothes and a toothbrush. And I'm sure if you forget one Lorrie and Tammy would get you one. This place is great.
