Great value for good location

  • 4 of 5

We spent 4 nights at this 3 bedroom condo which was our base for Universal and Disney. It was optimally located in between with short drives to each. The condo itself is good sized with all the basic amenities. Only complaint is that the kitchen is a little bare bones i.e. knives very dull, no extra dishwasher detergent. We also did not take advantage to the common facilities i.e. pool, etc. Nevertheless, for the price, would definitely stay again.

We are very picky!

  • 3 of 5

We rented this condo to house (2) married couples one with child (2-3 years old) and (2 )male single employees. The condo was not very clean (bathrooms). The mattresses are a little on the hard side and the place is too small for more than 7 people. Kitchen is small. And sound travels through the walls. Location is great for a convention stay. Did not have a chance to check out the pool bar or pool. Probably because of the sign... No Alcoholic beverages past this point...unless purchased here.

Great family environment!

Spacious condo in beautiful resort-like setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this great condo while visiting Universal parks. Condo was located very conveniently to parks, shopping, and highways. Very clean and comfortable, we had everything we needed at our fingertips. Washer and dryer was a huge bonus, as was pool area. Would definitely stay here again on next visit to Orlando. Highly recommend!

Great space, Great location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean and a perfect size for our family. It's proximity to the clubhouse and pool was great! My daughter enjoyed the pool, large and not crowded.

The location cannot be beat. Close to Universal and not too far from Disney, grocery store down the street and pharmacy (Walgreens) down the block.

I would highly recommend this for anyone's visit to the Orlando park area.
