Our family extends a warm invitation to you and your family to have your magical gathering at our beautifully appointed and luxurious 6 bedroom villa that has 3 full baths with sink, toilet, shower, and tub. We also have two baths that have a sink, toilet, and shower but no tub. Our villa is located in gated community in Florida's bountiful orange grove country just off Interstate 4 near the junction of Highways 192 and 27. That is only eight miles from the Disney theme park gates!

Please note. Due to a past experience that resulted in damage to our home, we are unable to rent our home to groups that will include chaperoned students who will be visiting Orlando.

Enjoy a relaxing swim in the warm and sunny south-eastern facing pool and spa that is completely screened in and lighted at night. The Lanai is shady and furnished with lounges, tables, chairs, child-sized furniture, and fun pool toys. Cook up some tasty burgers or steaks on our charcoal grill.

The dining table seats eight plus and the large kitchen, which seats four, is complete with cookware, dishes, and utensils. Everything you need to cook at home if you choose to do so. Both the kitchen and dining area look out onto the Lanai-pool area.

The entire home is furnished with beautiful designer furniture and accessories. We invite you to stretch out in the comfortable great room that is complete with TV, AM/FM stereo, DVD/CD, and movies. There are many board games to play and childrens movies to watch. Relax in all the comforts of your air-conditioned home away from home!

On the first level of our home you will find a queen-size suite with a disabled friendly bath and also a queen-size bedroom. We have added a games room where the kids can retreat to play board games or foosball, watch TV or movies, or just hang out. If you have extra energy after a long day in the parks you can burn some calories on our excercise bike that is in our games room. The games room has a queen sleeper sofa that you can use but we do not include it into what we call sleeping space.

The easy-to-use modern kitchen and dining area is accessible through the security alarmed french doors. The pool area is spacious and comfortably furnished and has a convenient toilet and shower with plenty of towels.

On the second level there is a junior suite (the Princess room) with two twin beds and bath with an additional bedroom (the Mickey room) with two twin beds directly across the hall. Too tired to stay and watch the fireworks that Disney displays every night? Then be our guest and have your own private viewing from the upstairs bedroom windows! Both king-size master suites are complete with lovely spacious baths with large showers and jetted Jacuzzi tubs.

All linens are furnished for your convenience as are hair dryers, radio alarm clocks to get you going in the morning, a high chair for the little one, a baby crib if you need it, a stroller for your use, a washer and dryer for the laundry, an iron and ironing board and even a Christmas tree and decorations if you are lucky enough to be the family to be visiting for the holidays.

Our villa is an easy drive from the Orlando International Airport. If you are driving to Orlando, access to the villa is just off Interstate 4 near the junction of highways 192 and 27. Disney is just eight miles away. Universal Studios and Sea World are only a few minutes farther. About an hours drive to the east will find you at the many beaches of the Atlantic Ocean or the Kennedy Space Center. You can head west an hour or so to reach the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico or visit Busch Gardens. Or you can south on a nice drive to visit the new LEGOLAND.

There are shopping malls, flea markets, and many golf courses for you to enjoy. A nearly countless number of restaurants are nearby if you chose to dine out. Undoubtedly you will enjoy the convenience of multiple close-by grocery stores, a new super Walmart, and gas stations.

To maintain the pristine condition of our home we must ask that you leave your pets at home. Also, if you choose to smoke, you must do so outside of the home so that future guests, who may be offended or allergic to smoke, are not upset.

Please, make yourself at home. We certainly look forward to hearing from you to schedule your reservations or answer your questions. During or following your stay, any comments or suggestions would be appreciated to improve your stay or the stay of others who will visit in the future. Our family, the mouse and all his pals and his competitors say:

Welcome to Mickeyn Minnies Hideaway and have a great stay!!

Outstanding vacation home !!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this home after considering many others for our family vacation. It was definitely the right choice. Upon arrival we noticed how quiet and peaceful the gated community was. The home was very clean and beautifully furnished. While vacationing with our adult children, we found this home to be very comfortable and spacious. The pool and pool area were absolutely wonderful. We used it everyday. We took advantage of the grill for a couple of meals. What a nice bonus. We also enjoyed the location of the home. Jay and Susan were very helpful with any questions or inquires. If ever returning to the area, this home would be our first choice!

Perfect House for Family Disney Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented Mickey and Minnie's Hideaway March 10-15, 2015, for our family's Disney vacation. We were very pleased. The house was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, as was the pool area. There were even towel swans on the beds when we arrived. Such a special touch! Jay and Sue were great to work with and very helpful with planning our trip. It was a big plus to have their experienced knowledge of the parks at our disposal. We will definitely be looking them up for any future Orlando trips.

Thanks, Jay and Sue for helping us make wonderful memories!

First Time Florida/Disney Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house is AMAZING!! Our family (8 of us) stayed and we all had plenty of room and privacy, the kids LOVED the pool! The house is well stocked, clean, (Spotless!!) and SOOO much nicer than any hotel or resort! The house is conveniently located approx 15 minutes from all of the parks which we felt was perfect for getting away from the crowds to recharge, but is also located near many local restaurants (Try "Germans", its AMAZING!) The neighborhood is quiet, the folks are all friendly. This house is a fantastic place to stay no matter what you have on your vacation agenda! We look forward to visiting again soon, and HIGHLY recommend this house to others! Jay and Susan have done a spectacular job of making this home warm, welcoming and stunningly beautiful!

Owner's Response: Sue and I are delighted to hear that you had a great time on your getaway and found our home as nice as we strive to keep it. We also thank you for letting us know of the restaurant that you have found. We have not heard of it but will check out their menu the next time we are in Orlando. We will add it to the list that we pass on to future guests. Once again many thanks to you for choosing our home and we look forward to hearing from you again. Take care, Jay and Sue

Wonderful Christmas Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Jay and Susan's house several times. We will be traveling to Florida again this summer and unfortunately, it is already booked. We spent 3 weeks at their home over Christmas and it was wonderful, as always. Not only is the house beautiful and extremely well-cared for, but Jay and Susan are some of the nicest people we have ever run across. Their attention to detail is unsurpassed!! When we stepped in the front door, there was a small Christmas tree in the living room. The dining table was set beautifully and there was a small gift on each plate. We have 6 children ranging in age from 3 to 19 and they were ALL so excited to open their present. Their kindness and generosity to our family will not be forgotten. We will most definitely be back!!!

Sandra and Family

  • 5 of 5

The home was absolutely perfect and the owners are fantastic! We are a family of 11... three generations. It was our best vacation ever and we hope to return next year. The property manager was very attentive and the homeowners share their love of Disney with helpful suggestions.

Everything was spotlessly cleaned and ready upon arrival. The grandkids loved the pool and this grandma loved spending vacation time under one roof with her family... so everyone was happy!

We were made to feel very welcome. There was a special personal touch every step of the way. The wonderful memories will last a lifetime!
