My husband and I were looking for some restful time away and the Villa was perfect! Here are some of the things we appreciated:
- easy to find with GPS
- pleasant security staff was ready for our arrival
- quiet, clean neighborhood with wide streets
- amazingly beautiful, colorful decor
- comfortable furniture
- stocked with everything we needed (kitchen appliances, beach chairs, etc.)
- a perfect pool patio for eating or relaxing at any time of day
- easy to use wi-fi and cable TV
- property management that was helpful and responsive to questions even after hours
While staying here we found PLENTY to do and could definitely have stayed longer!
- Disney Springs for an open-to-the-public taste of Disney culture and a fun night out (free parking, specialty shopping, great street performers, a variety of good restaurants, movie theaters, a permanent Cirque du Soleil venue).
- amazing, inexpensive ethnic food (checked for reviews online)
- kayaking in the headwaters of the Everglades at Shingle Creek Regional Park just minutes from the Villa. An amazing outdoor experience!
- a day trip to the Gulf beach -- we chose Siesta Key and absolutely loved it
- walking around the lake at the Villa, spotting birds and flowers
- lots and lots of relaxing and long conversations at the Villa!
I would LOVE to return here someday!!
This house was a perfect place for our family vacation! The house is clean and beautiful and even nicer and bigger than it appears in the pictures!
Our children loved the house, the pool, themed bedrooms, and especially the game room! The owners have clearly thought of everything you could possibly need for a perfect getaway! We all cannot wait to go back!
The service and security was phenomenal, and the owners were an absolute pleasure to deal with!
I was skeptical at first. Pictures look too good to be true, but it was even better in person! The pool and the game room was a great addition for the kids to use while the parents relaxed. Please note the kitchen is stocked with cookware including a crockpot and blender (I was told no crockpot so we bought one the first day and realized later). The playground and sand areas are a close pleasant walk down the block.
This is such a great vacation rental house! The drive to Disneyworld was about 20 mins, which was great.
7 of us stayed at the house (me, my husband, two daughters, sister & parents) and we all fit in this home comfortably. The house was clean, thoughtfully-decorated, stocked with towels, and fully-equipped with all of the appliances and items we needed to make our stay comfortable. We fully utilized the laundry room, the games room, and the pool! There was always something fun for every one to do at all times. There is also a fun toddler park about 3 minutes away, so that was also great.
My 3-year old daughter LOVED the pink princess room, and my other daughter loved the Finding Nemo-themed room. Everything about our stay was positive - we highly recommend the Fantasmic Villa!
Customer service - I spoke with Nikki whenever I had questions or concerns, and she always responded promptly and professionally.
We loved the Fantastic Villa!!! We had two families go down from PA, with two boys and two girls. The rooms were decorated and set up perfect for a Disney vacation. The girls wanted to stay in the princess room forever :-) The adults each had their separate bedrooms and everyone was happy. The entire house was very clean and they thought of everything for your stay. The garage is turned into a playroom with endless dress up things for kids, air hockey table, pool table, fishing rods... The list goes on and on. Even had strollers available for you to use. The location was great. You are not far from Disney but didn't seem to be in the craziness of all the Disney tourist traffic... We cannot say anything bad about our stay if you are looking for a great family place to stay book with confidence you will love it. We can't wait to go back!!!
This house is simply fantastic!!!! The room's are impeccably decorated and make you feel like your part of Disney even while staying off Disney property. My kids just loved the princess and Nemo rooms. The adult rooms are lovely and a nice retreat after a busy day. The on site pool is so convenient. We loved having the lake and playground so close. Can't wait to plan our next trip!
