About Don or Marilyn McQueen

We are Canadian owners of this lovely condo. We bought it to enjoy with our 2 daughters and 3 grandchildren. It is set up for children both young and old. The screened in private lunai is perfect for morning coffee {gets sun all day} or evening supper. Childrens playground and splash pad will amuse them for hours. Lagoon style pool is a delight for all. Very quiet gated property is just far enough off main arterys to be heaven.

Don or Marilyn McQueen purchased this condo in 2010

Why Don or Marilyn McQueen chose Kissimmee

Location,location, Location If Disney is your destination then there is very little that's closer. If you stand in the driveway in front of this unit you can see and faintly hear the fireworks every night at Magic Kingdom. You can walk to Mac Donalds, Burger King, Dunkin Donuts, supermarkets,shopping

What makes this condo unique

One thing that really appealed to us was this is a second floor unit. It is very quiet ands bright. The ground floor units tend to be darker and noisy from the units above them. There is no one above this unit. There are childproof gates at top of both sets of stairs, stairs are inside unit and carpeted. Upstairs units are larger 1480 SQ FT and brighter {more windows} Parking is right at your front door or there is a dedicated driveway and small garage . Ideal for motorcycle or storing golf clubs, strollers etc.

Wonderful home close to Disney and great for kids!

  • 5 of 5

Don and Marilyn have a wonderful home here! They are very involved in the rental process and make sure that you have everything you need. This home is in a wonderful gated community that is great for small children and very close to World Drive/Disney. We loved the fact that this is a kid-friendly condo with all the necessity you may need. It was great having a pack-n-play, high chair, child bedrail, and kid utensils. We will certainly look forward to returning in the future!

Excellent rental. Even better with small kids

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this condo. It was clean, and the decor was great. My son loved the Mickey Mouse in his room, and the overall theme was not too much Disney. Speaking of Disney, the location near Disney is great. It took less than 15 minutes to get home from the Magic Kingdom. Our conference at the Dolphin hotel was less than 10 minutes away.

Also, the amenities on the property were great. They have a nice play ground and splash pad. The pool has a zero entry. Also, it is big enough to swim laps in if you want to get a workout.

If you have small kids you should book here now. The provided high chair and pack in play, and double stroller really simplified things. They also had sand toys that we didn't use.

The kitchen was well stocked with plates, glasses, etc. There was a super Target nearby to pick up food. We saved a bunch by eating in a few meals.

Overall we loved the condo and will look to stay here again if we return to Orlando. Finally, thanks to the owners for sharing their condo and even calling to ensure everything was good with our stay!

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so very pleased with what the condo had to offer. We are a family of 8 and the condo was very roomy. We rented directly from the home owners, with great confidence that everything was handled just right. We sent several emails with questions and they were so helpful with information. The amenities to the property are wonderful. We enjoyed a day at the pool and the playground. We used the beach items from the garage for a great day of sand castle building by the beach. If we ever get the chance to travel back to Orlando, I do know that we will be making arrangements to stay here. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a week and it was perfect! I especially liked the baby and toddler essentials that are kept on site here for anyone who stays such as the highchair, double stroller, pack n play, and side rails for the kids beds. I have a 1 year old and 3 year old so these came in real handy and gave us extra space in the car since we didn't have to bring them from home. I'd definitely stay here again!

VRBO are now charging a fee to the guests for the use of their site. Their fee is a service fee and paid directly to them.
The rental fees and deposit is collected by the management company that cleans and maintains my unit in Florida.
I simply forward you details and phone number and rate that we agree on to them. They will E mail you a rental agreement and a secure link for credit card payment. This system has worked flawlessly for 5 years. Since they are available 24/7 and local to the condo it makes sense that they collect the money. I require a $250.00 deposit at booking {refundable with 30 days notice} and balance 30 days prior to move in. On stays of less than 5 nights I charge $90.00 for short term cleaning. Stays of 5 nights or over I pay cleaning
