Overview

About the property

Our 4-bedroom, 3-bath Orlando vacation rental house was designed for fun!

Welcome to Remy’s Refuge!

Our 4-bedroom, 3-bath Orlando vacation rental house was designed for fun. Bring your friends, your family, and your friends’ families. Bring a group of up to 10 people and enjoy perks that the resorts and hotels don’t offer! Like:

An open living space for hanging out together. A private, lake-view pool and spacious hot tub that’s all yours (no need to deal with someone else’s splashing kids)! A newly-decorated game room with tables for pool and foosball, as well as a card table and an assortment of puzzles, board games and toys. Two master suites, each with king-sized beds and their own attached baths. Two guest bedrooms that sleep 4 more.

And, of course, the insider expertise of two true Disney Fanatics…us! We are Amanda and Trevor, two Canadians who started dreaming of our own place in Orlando the first day we visited. (Our wish came true in 2014!)

OUR LOCATION

We know you’re wondering…and yes, our location is excellent! In fact, our neighborhood of Oak Island Cove is known for being one of the closest communities to Disney. The nearest park, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, is just 3.4 miles away. The furthest park is just 15 to 20 minutes away, depending on traffic.

So when the last firework pops against the night sky at the end of a long, enchanting day, you’re just a short drive from the comforts of home.

OUR POOL

When you get back, flip on the patio lights, and close out the day with one more treat: an evening swim or a relaxing soak in the 7-person hot tub. Our pool area is totally enclosed and private, and backs up against a small lake. Listen to the crickets and frogs and watch the moonlight glitter on the water. And laugh at the mosquitos, which can’t reach you through the screens!

You can also take a Disney-detox day and just hang out together at home. Tired of lounging by the pool? Set up a foosball tournament or a game of pool in the game room. Or go fishing in the lake! There are countless nearby attractions, too, from wineries to theatres to ghost tours to delicious restaurants.

OUR KITCHEN

Remy’s Refuge makes dining in and saving money seriously easy. Our kitchen is fully equipped with all large and small appliances, plus cabinets stocked with pots, pans, dishes, utensils...everything. Or mix it up and grill outside on the gas grill. We provide the propane free of charge.

We also offer vouchers for complimentary grocery delivery. Imagine arriving at the rental to a fridge full of your favorites!

You can always put the money you save toward one incredible meal at Victoria & Albert’s (an AAA Five Diamond recipient and Disney’s #1 restaurant).

OUR STYLE

Many Orlando vacation rental homes have “park-themed” bedrooms. We do, too…but we also have the benefit of Amanda’s interior design certification! So our bedrooms are playful AND stylish, and pay subtle tribute to some of the greats: Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Ratatouille, Muppets, Lego and Harry Potter.

You’ve already found out one of Orlando’s best-kept secrets—vacation rentals are the way to go. Contact us today to book your stay!

About Trevor & Amanda

We are a young Canadian couple who just love exploring new places. We visited Disney for the first time in 2012 and fell in love with the attractions and the Orlando weather!

Trevor & Amanda purchased this house in 2014

Why Trevor & Amanda chose Disney / Orlando

We wanted to find a tranquil place where we could relax while still being close to amenities, shopping and theme parks. We think Remy's Refuge is a little piece of heaven!

What makes this house unique

Remy's Refuge stands out from other vacation rentals in a couple of ways:

1. We're on a lake! So close to everything but with that cottage-y feeling; it's lovely!

2. We're newly redecorated! Modern furnishings, fresh colors, and lots of amenities!

3. We're as close to the parks as it gets! Get home within minutes of getting to the car (fantastic when you're already exhausted)!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hosts were very responsive and house is same as described in picture and description. We had really good time. It was very close to Disney and other retail places.

Remy's refuge was amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great home to stay in while visiting Disney world!!! The moment we walked in were mesmerized by the Disney decor. This spacious home was a "refuge" for our three children, my husband and myself. After walking around Disney world all day and fighting the crowds it was a relief to come back to this home and relax in the screened porch while our kids swam!!!! Wonderful location, home and vacation!! Thank you.

Missed the mark on cleanliness and safety

  • 3 of 5

First of all, to be fair, the owners were very responsive to our concerns and refunded a small portion of our stay. And, we had an error on our part, we checked out 20 mins after the 10:00 am check out time. I realize that they have great reviews (that's one reason we booked the house), but this is a completely honest review and we have normal expectations of cleanliness and safety.

High points: The kids loved the pool/hot tub and the location was close to Disney. We also enjoyed the proximity to grocery stores and restaurants. The room set ups were nice as well.

Low points: After a long day of travel with kids, we were ready for bed and that's when we noticed the house was not properly cleaned. We discovered a master room's comforter was covered in pet hair. We realize that pets are allowed, but if properly cleaned, there shouldn't that much pet hair on anything. We removed the comforter and noticed human hair on the pillowcases and fitted sheet. So, those were removed and tossed in the washer (not something we wanted to do on vacation, esp the first night!). Unfortunately, the other bedrooms' bedding had issues as they either smelled unclean and/or had human hair on the sheets as well. The owners sent in a cleaning crew the next day and the sheets were better.

Next, we discovered the window locks in the kids bedrooms were all broken. This could allow the rooms to be accessed from the outside.

Finally, there was a significant ant problem in the kitchen. The countertops are dark but the number of ants and their color (almost translucent) made them very easy to spot. There were some ant traps on the counter, but they were not deterring them. The ants ran along the top of the counters on the peninsula and in/around the sink and that was before we ate/drank anything. We kept all food either in the fridge or on top of it to prevent them from getting into the food and to keep more from coming. In addition, we were always wiping the countertops with Clorox wipes (again, not something we wanted to do on vacation!). We realize FL has many insects and can be hard to manage, but these ants were a problem.

A good, deep clean and window repairs are necessary for this property. We emailed the owners with pictures and expressed that we would not stay at this house again. There are too many homes in this area with similar amenities to return to one that didn't make us feel truly comfortable.

Owner's Response: Hi Marra, As we mentioned when you contacted us, we are very sorry for the issues you had with the cleaning of our property. The cleaning crew that was at the house before your stay did not do an adequate job of cleaning the house to our standard. We have raised this issue with our management company and they have assured us this won't happen again. When we heard from you about this issue, we had another cleaning crew sent back to the house. We are pleased to hear that you were satisfied with the second cleaning. Thanks for bringing the broken windows to our attention. Rest assured that we are having the two windows that are broken repaired. The ants you describe are known as 'sugar ants' and are attracted into the house by food left out on the counter or food containers not properly closed in the pantry. Based on your feedback we inquired with our pest control company, and have found that one of our blooming bushes may also be contributing to attracting them. We have since taken further measures with our pest control company to remediate the situation. In addition, since guests may not be familiar with pest control measures required in Florida’s warm climate, we have updated our arrival instructions to include a section on ant prevention. We appreciate you taking the time to bring these items to our attention so that we could remediate them for all future guests. We strive for a high-quality experience for all of our guests, and we are truly sorry that we did not live up to that for your stay. Sincerely, Trevor and Amanda

Remy's refuge was great

Everything was great about the house and pool area. Exactly what we were hoping for. The management team or owners were also very prompt in responding to our emails.

A true retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The house was conveniently located and well appointed. It felt loved like it was a house that the owners frequently use themselves and don't just use as an investment. It was fun watching the fireworks from the hot tub at the end of the day.

Family of 8 for a week at Disney

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I took our three kids (5,4,and 5 months) to Disney for a week and brought the in-laws and my mom as well. We looked at the costs of staying in three hotel rooms and it was a bit ridiculous. This place was perfect for us. The two master suites were great to give the in-laws privacy and everyone else had plenty of room. We loved the grocery delivery because the fridge was stocked when we walked in the door.

The house was great overall. Location wise, its 15 minutes in the car all the parks. we had a van and getting to and from was not an issue at all. It was great coming home in the afternoon, relaxing and letting the kids swim in the pool. With the house backing up to the small lake, it was quiet and we sat outside every night and relaxed. Having the kitchen was also key. We cooked at home twice and ordered takeout with no issue. We also packed full lunches and snacks each day before heading to the park and that alone saved us a ton of time and money while at the parks.

We would definitely recommend this place for anyone looked to avoid the hotel scene in Disney. We had a great time and would love to book this place again in the future.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a guys golf trip to Orlando. The house was perfect with four bedrooms and extremely modern and clean. We really enjoyed the hot tub after full day on the golf courses. The house is also an excellent location and close to everything! Looking forward to booking this place again next year!
