About the property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

Location, location, location!!! Soooo convenient to everything you want and need to do during your Disney/Orlando vacation. You will feel like you are in a tropical oasis at this top rated Encantada gated resort. And best of all this 5 star rated townhouse is one of the best positioned in the resort being just steps from the clubhouse, pools, & playground, but far enough not to hear the noise. It is on the lake with the front facing a wooded conservatory making for more pleasant & peaceful experience. This townhome is beautifully decorated and very well appointed--but I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. Guest have full use of the clubhouse and facilities which include:

Two heated swimming pools (one being a zero-entry pool designed for younger children)

Two hot spa pools

Arcade games & pool table

Exercise equipment

Internet cafe

Catch & release fishing (without permit!)


Shuttle service to major theme parks (for a fee)

Lots of area info, maps, guides, etc. available in clubhouse

And did I mention LOCATION:

2 miles to Welcome Center/registration for this townhouse

3 miles to the west entrance of Disney via Hwy 429 ($1 toll)

5 miles to Animal Kingdom

4 miles to World Drive (Disney's main gateway)

4 1/2 miles to ESPN's Wide World of Sports

4 1/2 miles to Interstate 4 (leads to Seaworld, Universal Studios)

1 mile to Hwy 429 (Western Beltway)

1/2 mile to McDonalds, Houlihans, 7-Eleven (walk if you want)

1 1/2 miles to Super Target and Publix Grocery

1 1/2 - 2 miles to new restaurants (Miller's Ale House, Applebees Olive Garden, Longhorn Steakhouse, Bahama Breeze, Cracker Barrel, and many more)

Within 2 miles of golf courses (Orange Lake, The Reserve, The Legends)

25 miles to Orlando International Airport

50 miles to beaches

Because Encantada Resort is a half mile off the hustle and bustle of Hwy 192, it has a feel of solitude once you enter the gates. When you walk through the door of 'Walkin on Sunshine' townhome, you can unwind in a clean, comfortable, well equipped home managed by a top notch management company.

About The Owner


We are a Louisiana couple and enjoy coming to sunny Florida. We lived 3 years in Merritt Island, FL when my husband was in the airforce in the mid 70's and worked at what was then Cape Kennedy. My how things have changed! But we always loved Florida, and it feels like a second home. We could never leave our Louisiana roots. So, that is why we are so excited to have this townhouse in Florida. We hope to visit often with family and friends and hope all the guest that stay enjoy it as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2011

Why The Owner chose Disney / Orlando

Location, location, location

We love being close to the western entrance to Disney. It's so easy and much less traveled. (I wonder if they are keeping it a secret). Shopping and new restaurants are right there close.

Encantada's location has that secluded but safe feeling that you need after a day of overload.

What makes this townhome unique

I love sitting on the screened in patio in the mornings with my coffee looking over the lake and fountain as the sun comes up. Also, taking a walk around the lake on the paved sidewalk is nice. We saw an eagle last time we were there. My husband enjoys feeding cheerios to the fish of the fishing pier.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We found the stay in walkin' on sunshine GREAT. The prior contact with Janet upon reservation was very pleasant and she was very helpful in answering questions about the rental. Upon arrival, the check in was very smooth and took only 5 minutes. We were very excited to see the house when we arrived and we were very happy to see that everything exceeded our expectations. The interior is very beautiful and nicely decorated. The kitchen is fully equipped and bathrooms spotless. The kids loved the bunk bed in "their room". We very much enjoyed both the small pool at the house as well as the larger pools in the club house, which is located conveniently close by the house. We felt very welcome here and would definetly like to return another time.

We are a family with 2 young boys of 5 and 6 years of age. Our youngest son even celebrated his 5th year birthday in the house, so this stay has definitely created long lasting memories for us all. We give or utmost recommendation for staying in the house of Janet ...

Love this house

  • 5 of 5

As we have previously stayed at Walking On Sunshine, there is not a lot to say, we love Janet's house and the location, Janet is always there with prompt replies to our requests and is very helpful. I would say as we keep returning says a lot. Great house has everything you need. We feel safe and secure staying at the resort, is close to everywhere you may want to go. We had a fab holiday and will be returning in the future.

Very Much Like Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 5. It was more than enough room. Very clean. Felt like home. Very quiet and felt safe. Drive to Disney was quick with avoidance of Orlando's vicious tolls. We loved our stay... I picked a good home to stay in.

Wonderful vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect to complete our Disney vacation. It was literally 10 minutes away from Disney gates, easy drive and can avoid tolls. The unit is very clean, spacious, and nicely decorated. It is fully applianced and has many amenities. My children especially loved the loft/bunk bed! The heated pool was a perfect addition to the end of our long days there. It comfortably fit our family of 4. One side note- if you plan to swim in cooler months or at night, definitely pay for the pool to be heated. Once ours kicked on, our water was like warm bath water every night and it was excellent. We had one slight issue with that when we first arrived, but both the owner and the staff at Villa direct were all amazing at promptly addressing our issue. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend this place and will definitely be returning in the future!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in August 2015. We absolutely loved the condo. Everything was as described and the location was great. Janet was a pleasure to deal with and the check in process was a breeze. Would stay again and I highly recommend.
