Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a week at Disney. This rental was perfect! It is conveniently located near lots of restaurants and shopping. We enjoyed dinner at Texas Roadhouse and Miller's Ale House. Both were excellent and the service was great! All the parks were close by about a 10 minute drive. The rental was clean, spacious and we felt very at home there. We are a family of 4 so we had plenty of room. The gated community is lovely and everyone was so friendly. We will definitely recommend this rental to friends and family who are planning a trip to Disney.

Excellent property. Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a fabulous two week holiday, and I would certainly have no hesitations about returning. This well appointed villa represents excellent value for money. Four good size bedrooms, and ample, comfortable living space downstairs. Great lanai covered pool area (of perfectly adequate size) which the children immediatly headed for after a long day in the parks, whilst we supervised them clutching an ice cold Harvey Wallbanger. (Great ice machine on the large fridge/freezer!!) The complex at Encantada has a nice relaxed feel and is only a few minutes drive from Disney main gates, and a little further to Universal.

The villa was clean, and decorated/furnished to a high standard. The pool area was clean, and the pool guy visited during our stay to check the water quality.

Close by are the large Super Target and Publix supermarkets, and an array of restaurants. Long Horn Steakhouse being our favourite.

Good communications with owners.

Nice house shame about the pool area !!!

  • 3 of 5

The house was clean and well equipped and close to theme parks ,shops and restaurants. However although there was enough bedrooms to sleep 8 I'm glad there were only four of us as living and pool area was not very spacious and would of felt cramped if there were any more of us, I even moved stools from the breakfast bar to make more space.

Pool area was rather sandy which ended up in the pool which wasnt working properly as flies and debris were floating on top, we also had our children's pool toys stolen.

This was all reported to the management company who were not really very helpful and said they would send someone to clean the pool which never happened.

The house was also situated next to the trash compactor which as it was very hot smelt lovely !!!

We have been lucky enough to go to Florida 4 times and this has been the worst villa we have stayed in. We will not be returning to this resort and would not recommend the house to family and friends.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you had a problem with the pool. We'd just had the surrounding paving area sealed so this may have dislodged some dirt which went in (although this can often happen with the wind).

This was our second visit to this home and it was just as good as the first time we went 2 years ago. there was 8 of us this time and the place never felt crowded at any time. there were plenty of seats by the pool, the pool itself did feel a little crowded at times but that is because we had 4 lilo, 2 large rings, a kids boat and 8 people in there at the same time. take out the lilo and it was fine. the information folder that is in the home for when you arrive was very useful. we had to take our 3 year old to a walk in clinic (the book listed where one was) would have not had a clue if not listed (even though when we got there realised we eat in the restaurants next to it) the property is so close to Disney and a 20-30 min drive to Universal. there are plenty of restaurants to eat in nearby our favourite this time was the Olive Garden, great food, fantastic cocktails and reasonable cheap considering there were 8 of us. Ginny and Lucy are always really quick to respond to any question you may have they are a pleasure to deal with. thanks again for the use of your home

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

We planned a post Christmas trip to meet family from America in Florida. In the past we have always stayed on Disney property. From now on we will be looking to stay here! The house was in a secure location and had everything you needed on your doorstep. The house had a pool and with the warm temperatures in December we didn't even need the heat for the water. The pool at the clubhouse was a close walk away and the lake in the resort provided a great scene for morning runs. We had a car to go out, and all of the usually amenities were close by - grocery stores, shopping places, tons of restaurants and crazy golf! Other family members were on Disney property and were a 10-15 minute drive away. The airport was about 30 mins away and really easy to get to. The outlets are also not far! The house itself is wonderful, it easily fit our family. 4 good sized bedrooms and 3 large bathrooms. A really good open plan kitchen/dining/living room that was great for family time. The outdoor space was great for mornings by the pool! I can't say enough good things about this place! Ginny and Lucy were great to deal with, very prompt in their replies. Thank you so much!!

Perfect Disney Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying for 2 weeks at this beautiful villa and have just returned home recently. The location and presentation of the villa was wonderful. Plenty of room for the 7 of us who stopped. Excellent facilities both in the villa and on the resort. A perfect location for visiting the Disney Parks, (Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios were really close) and only a 20-30 minute drive to Universal Studios and Seaworld. Very close to 3 large supermarkets (Walmart, Publix and Target) and some great restaurants only a 2-3 minute drive away. I can recommend Olive Garden, Longhorn Steakhouse and Logans Steakhouse. Excellent owners who were prompt in replying with any enquiries and really easy instructions to follow when arriving. An absolute pleasure. Better start saving for next year!!

The famous Daytona beach and Clearwater on the Gulf coast are only slightly further. There are numerous golf courses close to the resort, and medical facilities and supermarkets are on the doorstep. A babysitting service can be easily arranged.

The pool is west facing in a sunny spot, and, being at the end of the row of houses, is larger than most. There is plenty of room to swim about (it is not just a splash pool). The pool also has side drain which makes it much safer for children than a bottom drain. The lounge is open plan with a comfortable sofa, two armchairs, cable TV and ipod dock. The dining area has a beautiful dark wood table with full place settings for 8, making eating in as easy as eating outside in the poolside patio area. There is a tumble dryer in addition to a washing machine. A cot, booster seat and stroller are provided for babies and young children. There is a telephone with free national calls, and wifi is provided, making it easy to stay in touch and to check your flight details. Disabled access: there is disabled parking available in front of the house, and the master bedroom 2 is on the ground floor with an ensuite bathroom, however the house has not been adapted for disabled access.
