Overview

Calabay Parc at Tower Lake House Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms/4 Bathrooms/Sleeps 14/20 minutes Disney/guard gated/frozen theme room

From the moment you enter this spacious home, you'll feel right at home. With turnkey accommodations, there's nothing that we havn't thought of to truly make your stay special. The home features an open living room and dining room combination that seems to invite you to kick back, relax and stay a while. Leather seating in the main living area provides a comfy area to relax after a long day of seeing the sites. The airy kitchen is filled with every utensil and appliance you need to prepare meals and the countertops offers a splendid space to pull up a stool in the morning for breakfast or socialize by evening to sample wine and hors d'oeuvres. In addition to the breakfast bar, there is a formal dining room for entertaining, with large dining table, sitting 11 pople and a small intimate nook just right for a romantic dinner .

The family room is one area of the home where kids will just naturally gravitate. With a 42 inch flat screen TV and DVD system, watching movies together is sure to supply many evenings of fun. The portable CD and iPod docking system allow tunes to be played anytime whether to create relaxing ambiance or an energizing, blood pumping party atmosphere.

And of course, no vacation is complete without a game room to add a little excitement each evening. Decorated in Disney Toy Story hand painted murals the room provides a large selection of board and table games - including chess and poker set , along with popular table games such as pool table, foosball, and air hockey. There's even a selection of fishing rods if you want to spend some time out on the lake as well as 4 children's bikes for cycling their way along the neighborhood pathways.

When you have little ones, it can be especially hard to travel and carry along all their needed equipment as well so we keep plenty of extra supplies on hand. There are two travel cots, a high chair, two strollers and booster seats so you don't have to bring yours along.

Located in the tranquil setting of Calabay Parc at Tower Lake, this secure guard/gated community is located just 20 minutes from Disney and other area theme attractions, but just far enough away from the traffic and noise of the downtown Orlando area to make it a truly relaxing destination.

The centerpiece of quality vacation accommodations is the sleeping quarters, and each bedroom in the home will delight you. All bedrooms provide a television and DVD player for late night viewing if desired. The first floor/ground floor has three king bedrooms , two of which are masters, for those who just love to relax in style you will enjoy staying in the luxurious lime green and black room with ensuite decorated in sumptuous fabrics and even the bathroom is stylish with pictures of Hollywood stars. The other ensuite king bedroom on the first level is decorated in mint green, with an oversized corner bath tub just calling for a few hours of relaxation in skin softening, perfumed bubbles. Then not forgetting our Harry Potter room, which is another king size bedroom, along with flat screen tv and dvd player

Upstairs guests will find three more bedrooms. The queen ensuite room is decorated in teal and chocolate with matching bath that will make you feel like you're relaxing near cascading pools of water. This might be expected since right next door kids experience their own pineapple under the sea in the Sponge Bob bedroom featuring one twin bed and one queen bed. The Sponge Bob bedroom is adjacent to the brightly coloured Frozen bedroom. This Disney room offers another two twin beds to sleep two more children.

Stepping outdoors into the beautifully furnished patio and pristine garden landscape offers a whole other experience from the indoor luxury. The Sponge Bob home is situated on the largest corner lot in the whole development so there's plenty of yard area for a game of soccer or touch football. Everyone will want to spend time lounging around the crystal clear waters of the south facing pool and soaking in the massaging action of the heated spa. There's even a selection of pool toys, badminton racquets and shuttle cocks for some outdoor games on the lawn.

Calabay Parc at Tower Lake is situated just off the US 27 and conveniently located to miss all the Orlando traffic on the 192 going into the Disney Resort area. The community's Tower Lake provides a boat ramp for easy launching of slips and motor boats. The attached fishing pier makes it easy to drop a line to catch some bass right from shore.

Wonderful stay at the SpongeBob House !!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful 9 day stay at the SpongeBob House in early July 2016. It was our first time renting a home and we are now ready to return to this house. The house was even more beautiful in person than the lovely photos. The house is decorated immaculately. It was very clean and easily accommodated my family of 7 adults. The pool area was great ; we hosted a July 4th party with over 25 adults and there was plenty of room. We had an issue with the internet and Karen quickly responded to fix it. The air conditioning worked well in all areas of the house. The house is in a private, gated community so we felt safe when we arrived late at night. The house was also good for relaxing in the living room and the huge kitchen with the breakfast island. The kitchen was very well stocked with plates, coffee mugs, cutlery and there were lots and lots of pots, pans and appliances. We could tell that Karen has a great eye for assuring a home away from home experience.

Best Regards,

Otilio.

Book it!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing! It was very well kept, beautifully decorated and super roomy! We fit a family of 12 comfortably and really enjoyed the layout! The pool area was a hit, as well as the kitchen. No need to bring any appliances either, this house has it all. The game room also came in handy with the little rain we had. I did have the wrong entry code when first arriving but I was able to reach Karen right away and we got right in! Karen was lovely and super helpful throughout this whole process. The house was not too far from Disneyworld and was surrounded by lots of stores and restaurants! I will definitely book this house again, my family can not stop talking about it! The themed rooms are also beautifully painted, a lovely touch!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was more than we were expecting and more than we could have asked for to accommodate our large family with adults and teenagers and small children. Something for everyone and nicely done at that.

The owners were amazing, the check in and check out smooth.

We truly could not have asked for a better experience.

Frequent renters this goes to the top of the list

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Sponge Bob House for a week in early January. The house is HUGE and well laid-out. Plenty of space for our many kids to enjoy, and the 4 bathrooms was a huge plus! Whoever took the time to paint the themed rooms was very talented- they are beautiful.

There were dress up costumes in the Frozen room for my toddler to put on right away. She was in heaven! Who does that? It was so thoughtful.

We loved the long dining room table and had many meals together there.

The pool was great (a few problems getting it heated right away), but the weather was cool when we were there, so we didn’t use it as much as we thought we would. Plenty of towels to use and a small, portable speaker to play music outside. There’s a fence to keep little ones out of the pool, very helpful with two toddlers.

The garage/play area was a huge hit. Everyone played out there- even grandpa. It was so much better than staying in a hotel, so much room and so very comfortable. The a/c is controlled outside of the home, so you have to call to have it adjusted. Probably not an issue for most, but again, we were there when the weather was cool, so we didn’t want it on.

There’s a Walmart very close by, and you can have a delicious Dora’s Pizza delivered to the house. We made it to Disney parks in 25 minutes.

We rent homes frequently when we travel and this one is on the top of the list. I can’t recommend it enough.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (all 9 of us) enjoyed staying at SpongeBob's. Location was very well suited to our getting out to the parks and the shopping we wanted to do. Check-in and out was so simple and did not take up any of our precious time. I have already recommended this house to others thinking of a Florida vacation in the future.
