Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

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!

About Jhony Alvarez

I have become a Florida resident and Real Estate broker to assist others with the opportunity to own a place in the Florida Sun. Our family and extended family now offer our guest many unique homes and condos, all very near Disney and we treat them like what they are - our family homes. We live near the homes and take care of the homes. One of our family is nearby to answer your questions and help you with a problem should something occur that you need our help. We keep 're-investing into our properties to assure your family of a great experience! All homes are not alike. Pictures are worth a thousand words - however, if the pictures are of when a home was built new - then they are worthless! Our homes are very modern and super located. Let's face it - the better locations were not built yesterday - but our homes look like they were built yesterday. This is the commitment we make to our guests and our family's future depends on our guest. If you want a cheap home - we are not it - however, if you want a great value - you've found it.

Jhony Alvarez purchased this house in 1996

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.

A visit to Orlando without Disney.

  • 3 of 5

This property was very suitable for our family of 4 adults and 2 toddlers (3 and 17 months). It did have 3 bedrooms and provided a high chair and pack 'n play for the baby. However, although we did plan to cook our own meals and shop for all ingredients, some basic needs were not met. Very specific directions for garbage disposal were given, but no garbage bags were provided. Also there were no hangers in the bedrooms, no soap, no dish or laundry detergent, no extra toilet paper nor basic cleaning supplies. We did not mind purchasing food items but we felt these other things should not have to be purchased by vacationers and then left in the house. Most of us do not have the space in our suitcases (nor the interest) in taking these home.

I believe that the ratings for this home would be much higher if these basic assumptions were met. I have learned when I do this again to ask more specific and detailed questions. This has been a learning experience for me and my family.

Owner's Response: Marilyn thank you for taking the time to review our home. We appreciate your positive comments about our home and how it met your needs. We strive to keep our homes clean and updated, just as we would our own homes. We do offer most things a family with small children need in our homes as well. We think our homes meet what we advertise and we try to make sure of that. We provide you with ways to contact us, as we will do anything to help our clients within reason. I didn't have a call from you and I assume you didn't contact us with your concerns - because we would have responded with answers and help. We list our home, as most all home rentals do and are - as a self catered home. Self catering means we don't supply, other than a starter amount, the supplies you mentioned. People who stay in our homes go to a grocery store or discount store and purchase food, beverages of their choice, etc. for their stay as well as the additional items they like in personal items like soap, shampoo, garbage bags, toilet paper, etc.. Now as to hangers, we have 100's of them and if you needed more we would have been happy to provide them. I am interested to know that the home didn't have ANY - I am very surprised and will check with our cleaning team - they should have made sure you had hangers - for this I sincerely apologize. Did you contact Jhony or our staff letting him know you needed any of the items you requested? He would have been happy to have assisted with your needs. We appreciate your review and I think it does help us and our clients to better understand each other and our needs. We also are happy that you said our home met your needs. I hope you will consider us again, as we were located where we said, the home was as we said and I think you found it clean and in great condition. Mickey, Jhony and the Team

Quaint little house

  • 3 of 5

We stayed over Thanksgiving and had a nice time. The house was good for us. Rooms were a little small, but all we did was sleep in them. If you're a cooking family, better be prepared to not have many serving bowls and bakeware. Some cleaning products, rags and stuff would have been nice. The dishwasher was a little outdated, and there was only 2 pods left for us to use. Overall, we had a nice stay.

Great house at a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our entire party enjoyed the house and the location. Our intention was to visit Epcot at DisneyWorld and this was just perfect. The only problem, and a very small one, is cleaning supplies. It really would help to have some glass cleaner, etc. to use during the stay. Jhoni was very nice and helpful.

Amazing Spotless Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we have booked with Jhonny and it will not be the last! Cannot wait to book next visit. The villa was even MORE amazing that the pics online and certainly exceeded our expectations - and some! The first thing to say is that the villa is SO CLEAN, immaculate, lovely linen on beds (which were all top class comfortable mattresses) and fabulous endless sparkling white towels. Laundry room fantastic (did not bring home any dirty laundry as it was so easy to use) and the kitchen is fantastic with all mod cons and, again, spotlessly clean. Lovely quiet residential neighbourhood which made us feel safe and part of the Florida lifestyle from the moment we arrived. The pool was a joy - perfect temperature, size and clean. There were only 3 of us so there was so much space and it would certainly not feel crowded with 6 or 8 adults. Disney is very close, and particularly good using the short cut mentioned in the info pack which avoided the busy highway (which can get quite built up at peak Disney opening/closing times). Great supermarkets (Publix and Target) only 5 minutes away with everything you could possibly need. We had a couple of queries when we arrived so we emailed Jhonny who answered straight away and called round within hours. He also kindly printed off our theatre tickets and dropped them at the house when we were out for the day. He was helpful, courteous and just 'wanted our stay to be right'. Did not hang around (like some owners) and was not intrusive or precious about the property. Just let us enjoy it! Unfortunately we now have post-holiday blues, and already looking which property to book next!!! Would recommend to any visitor at any time of the year and whatever the guest make up (families, couples). So very peaceful and relaxing.
