About the property

Orlando - Kissimmee - Disney World - Florida. This beautiful, privately-owned home is located very near Disney's Animal Kingdom Park!

To our previous guest and future guest. We want everyone to know that we are making significant updates and improvements to the home as of May, 2017 and be ready for our guest by months end. We are changing the homes decor and updating with a new kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances and new "quiet" dishwasher and side by side refrigerator. We are also installing new kitchen hardware, plumbing fixtures, sinks, cabinet hardware and granite counter tops and lighting in the home. We are repainting the interior of the home and have added in the past year new HD Televisions and new furniture. We have changed and upgraded our maintenance system and we are supplying more of the basic items to enjoy your stay. We have seen the issues of recent customers, we apologize that we couldn't get this done sooner, however, we were booked so far in advance - but now we are have scheduled the repairs and updates and are very excited for our guest to continue to enjoy the home you have come to love and enjoy with many generations of guest from the past. We will be posting new photos as soon as the changes are completed!

The luxurious master suite is as romantic as it gets. The king size bed has the thickest, plushest pillow top mattress you can find. Relax in this comfortable bed and watch the wall-recessed TV.

Want to really relax? Then let the 12 soothing jets of the two person double sized Jacuzzi reinvigorate you and that special person in your life. The huge 6' by 6' two person, twin headed shower lets water strike your entire body. Get ready for that special evening with his and her vanities.

Our pool is 36 feet long, 50% larger than a standard pool. The covered lanai has a reclining lounge chair as well as rocker. You will enjoy eating 'al Fresco' while enjoying the cool breeze generated from the fan above the generous dining table. The pool can be heated and it is totally protected from outside pests with its huge screen enclosure.

The home has 16-foot vaulted ceilings with huge archways. Its decorator-painted scheme and wallpaper provide a very modern/contemporary flair. The separate living room has a built in desk with internet hookup available as well. Your family room looks onto the pool area and allows you to watch the 55 inch flat screen HD TV at the same time you watch and hear the falling water.

Your home has a formal dining room, large kitchen with breakfast area, laundry room, a second bedroom (queen size bed) with the same plush mattresses as in the king master suite, and a bedroom with two twin beds themed in the tradition of Disney.

This home is a vacation destination unto itself. It is fully-equipped with everything you would need to make this your perfect vacation. Isn't it time you felt the magic and had a 5 Star Vacation? It's time to be a kid again and watch the nightly fireworks over Cinderella's Castle!

Our family offers 4 great properties, if you might want to consider listing #7170 - our 4 bedroom/3 bath executive lake view home; listing #7171 our 6 bedroom/3.5 bath resort home which was recently totally updated as well and our listing #9392 our 4 large 4 bedroom home located in Sun Lake Resort gated community. All of our homes are very close to Disney!

property was nice but didn't feel like home. only a shell of a home.

  • 2 of 5

Could have been cleaner. Absolutely no pantry staples. If you plan on cooking bring a kitchen! We only stayed two nights so no big deal. I would not stay here a week.

Owner's Response: This review occurred because we filed a complaint against the guest directly with VRBO. That was done a few days before the guest posted this review. The guest stayed for two days! WE made an exception and allowed them to rent the home - we have a three day minimum rental - which means they were on property for approximately 36 hours. I told Jhony before these people came that it would be a problem rental - we have found from experience - that one and two night stays end up costing us money as the home is abused and or damaged. I suspect this became a party home for the weekend. I want our guest to understand that we have made this home a very nice home and we were very upset by the way these people left it. I have had thousands of rentals in our homes - I can count on one hand the rentals with these kinds of problems from the past. This home's kitchen and much of the home was totally renovated in May before their arrival. We had/have everything in the home we have listed on the site as we provide - and more! This guest left the home with food in almost every room! We suspect they might have brought other people to the home as it was in such a mess! Either that or they live like pigs - which could be the case I guess. As an owner - after spending over $20,000 in remodeling to update this home and making it the best just this spring - it is frustrating to say the least. This home has complete kitchen wares for six people - it's sleeping capacity. We stock two complete sets of towels, hand towels and wash clothes for each guest for the home - that is 12 full sets! Two full sets of sheets for each bed as well. We provided enough dishwashing and laundry supplies to do 5 loads of cleanings for each appliance for our guest. We guarantee the quality of the home - we are available by phone all day every day for issues - and nights for emergencies! We fix issues as quickly as possible if something occurs. We don't furnish a pantry full of condiments, etc.. We say that in our ad - we are self catered - we are not a restaurant. If a guest has a problem - we encourage and want to be notified. Why didn't they call if they had a problem? I think any reasonable person knows the answer to this question - the guest abused the home and our policies! Again we guarantee our homes - when a guest checks in, if the home doesn't match what we say it has- we will refund our guest! How much fairer can we be - our goal is to make your trip great!

Awesome Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at your house. It was clean, comfortable and very nice. It had everything that we needed and even washing machine detergent was provided which is not done anywhere else. The pool was great and larger than most. The neighborhood subdivision where the house is located was a nice area with everything located on the main highway. I would definitely recommend family and friends to stay here.

Charming vacation home!!

  • 5 of 5

I don't usually write reviews after a vacation but I had a great conversation with the owner and I was telling him how happy I was with "Minnie's Mansion" and he asked that if I had the time, would I mind expressing my thoughts by writing a review, I asked him why and he told me honestly that the previous guest had written a review that listed several issues that were not in sync with what I told the owner during our discussion. I told him I'd be happy to write a review. I also felt this would be information I would want to read when I do my research for a vacation. So, we arrived at 4pm on April 12 (please note that the review mentioned by the owner was by the guest who left early the day we arrived, so I think that my review is suitable to the time frame) and even though the home had been rented until early that morning, we found the home to be neat, clean and in perfect condition. The house has is beautifully decorated with nice furniture and beds. The TV's were great and the pool was very large (which all three of our kids loved) and heated (which we requested because we went swimming after the parks, sometime as late as 10pm and each night the pool was wonderfully warm). There were plenty of clean (and what looked like brand new) linens and towels. I took it upon myself to read the pervious guest's review to see what the owner was talking about and I noticed that the previous guest complained about the pool temp....I don't know why, it was definitely not a problem for us. The previous reviewer also complained about the kitchen and again, I disagree with the assessment. While the kitchen appliances were older, they all worked and were clean and that was what was most important to us. There were also plenty of cleaning supplies and kitchenware for our daily use (so many little things that I didn't think of myself to bring or pick up so that was a big relief). In short, like I told the owner, we will definitely be back and look forward to the updates to the interior that the owner mentioned during our conversation. And one last, but very important note, we found the price to be very good (plenty of bang for the buck) !!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for you kind review Christine. I appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us and our future guest. Our goal is to make every visit a special one and we do try to make it as nice as possible. I am glad you found the home as we had told you. By the way we are finishing the updates on the home. Most were finished in May and we hope to get new photos up soon. Unfortunately or fortunately I guess - we have had guest in the home who arrived the day most of the updating was finished. So, we hope to have the new photos up when we can arrange to have them taken. We know you will like the changes - the three guest who have seen the "new" Minnie's Mansion have loved the makeover. We look forward to having you as a guest again soon! MIckey, Jhony and the team!

A Great Place to Stay With The Grandchildren!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at this home for a short stay on April 1st. This home was quite large, we were concerned and happily surprised from reading a review from last fall. The home was very nice and everything worked well. The master bedroom was very large and the master bath was huge! We really enjoyed the pool and the pool was warm as the owner had promised us- even though the weather was a little cool. The home was very well located, although we found the traffic very busy to Disney - we have been before and knew it would be = but it was actually very accessible to the Disney parks - our main purpose for visiting. It only took 15 minutes to get to Disney - which we thought was very good - as we had stayed at other homes that took much longer and the traffic wasn't nearly as busy as this visit. The home was very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We called the owner and asked about where the nearest grocery stores were and we were answered quickly - which was helpful since we only had 4 days to do what we wanted. Thanks for making our visit another great one - we will be back soon!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We try to make our homes as advertised and glad you found it to be what you expected. I think you will love the home when you next visit. We just updated the home including the baths, kitchen and lighting fixtures. The home how has a all stainless steel appliances and new cabinets and granite counter tops - which our newest guest are raving about! Plus the masterbath has been updated with a new frameless shower and updated plumbing fixtures. We hope to see you again soon! Mickey, Jhony and the staff

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We can not say enough about this home. Jhony thanks for sharing this home with us and telling us about how you just remodeled the home. You did a great job! The masterbath is beautiful and the bathroom is huge - the new frameless shower sure shows how spacious the two person shower is! We loved the new kitchen with all the new cabinetry, countertops and stainless steel appliances. My grandsons loved the large pool and the beds were so comfortable. We loved the location and it is as close to Disney as you told us it was. We will be staying in the home again when we get a chance!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. Sometimes people don't notice the changes we are constantly making to our homes - we are so happy you noticed them - we love the positives from our guest. We are still doing even more to this home - but as you noticed we are very proud of it and think our guest will really like the new gourmet kitchen too! Hope to see you back again soon!

Renter beware; Stingy rental company

  • 2 of 5

Be very, very careful selecting this property and read everything in detail before you do so.

The positives: The house was mostly as pictured (minus the kitchen towels, nice pillows, pool sprinklers, table settings, fancy pillows, and certainly not as described) and clean enough (which is important). Decent location (though we've had better at a lower cost.) The rental company was responsive when we had issues (though we were not necessarily happy with the responses).

The negatives: Unless you have a helicopter, the house is not "less than 5 minutes from Animal Kingdom" as (falsely) advertised. Even without traffic, it is at least 15 minutes and more like 20 to AK and DHS. The bedding is pathetic -- a thin sheet and an almost equally thin bedspread on top. No blankets. There is nothing cozy about sleeping here! Also, the information at the house says that the bedspreads (such as they are) are washed "according to the manufacturer's instructions," which I read to mean that they are not washed between each stay. Gross!!! Also, note that the pool is not heated unless you pay extra (which wasn't told to me until after I booked, of course). And even when you pay extra, the pool is not heated to a sufficient temperature and is only heated for 8-10 hours a day -- which means that the pool never gets to the advertised temperature (which I think is 84) and early morning and late evening swims will not be warm. Additionally, the rental company's explanation that the house is "self-catered" means they provide nothing to you. Supplies at the house included exactly 2 small rolls of toilet paper (1 in each bathroom), 2 dishwashing pods, 3 small bars of cheap soap (1 at each bathroom sink), 1 garbage bag (already in garbage bin), and 1 roll of paper towels. No sponges for cleaning, no dish washing soap, no laundry detergent. I've rented many, many houses, and have never been greeted with such pathetic supplies. The bath towels are also extremely thin. Bottom line, I probably should have read the reviews more closely (live and learn) but in any event will not use this rental company again.

Owner's Response: Wow! I am so sorry you had such a terrible experience! However, we can't be responsible for a negative attitude of a guest and we don't know what is going on in any person's daily life. Here is what I can tell you as the owner. You booked the home for 4 guest. We provided three complete sets of towels for every occupant. We provided enough dishwashing supplies and washing machines to do 3 complete loads of each! We provided two sets of sheets for each bed. We have NEVER had a complaint on being stingy - so I guess it is your perspective on that issue. We provided more than we advertised. We visited the home twice during the week and and our pool service was there once. The pool water temperatures were checked the water was always over 80 degrees - what we promised and delivered. You were asked if everything was ok and the response was everything was fine. I, the owner, was at the home personally one time - why"? Because we were making the landscaping better for more privacy - which was accomplished! The week you were here was the busiest week of the year - traffic was bad. But out home is still only 5 miles from Disney and the total driving distance to the entrance of Animal Kingdom park is 7.3 miles - not to the parking lot - the entrance! We are closer than 95% of the properties available for rental. I think your big complaint was this - the appliances were all working, but some were the original ones. A few weeks after you left and we completed the "busy season". I'm sorry it we couldn't do it for your visit, but we have totally redone the kitchen with new modern wood cabinets, new stainless steel appliances, new granite counter tops, new stainless deep sinks, a new frameless shower for the master bath, new light fixtures thru out the home. New ceiling fans, new plumbing fixtures in the bathrooms - bottomline the home has been totally refreshed and updated! All you had to do was ask us for anything - but you didn't. When our guest call us we respond. We also own and operate listing numbers, 7170, 7171, 9390 and 9392 on VRBO - I encourage others to look at these properties and check the reviews. I'm not saying we are perfect - but I can tell you we really try to take care of things! Their is an old saying - "you can please all of the people some of the time - and some of the people all the time" - but in reality some of the people you can never please! We do hope you give our home (s) another chance!
