Encantada, a unique concept in luxury living. So close to Disney, you can feel the magic. Come and experience a truly wonderful holiday at the Encantada Resort. Staying in your own spacious air conditioned villa, you can enjoy all the comforts of home yet have the facilities of a 5* Resort. Encantada is one of the closest resorts to Walt Disney World and our home has a prime location within this gated community overlooking the lake, our home has a private south facing swimming pool and (larger than most) patio area, with table, chairs and sun loungers. We have Wi-Fi in our home and TVs in all bedrooms.
My husband and I first visited Florida in 1992 and fell in love with not only the warm weather but also the warmth of the Floridian people, and all that Florida had to offer. We have been every year since (except one year in 1996 when we took a Caribbean Cruise ) but missed Florida, so didn't make that mistake twice ! We live in the UK and now visit Florida 4 times a year. We are very hands on homeowners, so together with our Management Company you can be assured our homes are kept to the very highest standard for our guests.
We had a wonderful stay at Encantada in Florida. The villa itself was superb, with a beautiful view overlooking the lake and a lovely pool.... We also had the full afternoon sun, which was great as I think villas on the other side of the lake would lose theirs. We only used 2 of the 4 bedrooms, but found the villa to be very clean, with everything we needed and more than enough space for a family of 4.
We hadn't expected to use the communal pools and clubhouse, but were really impressed with all the activities for the children and adults alike. The staff at the Marina Club, were so lovely, and made our girls feel welcome. They aren't used to kids clubs and childcare, but wanted to get involved with the variety of arts and crafts, pool games and ice cream making that they offered. This provided us with an unexpected, but very welcome break, and really enabled us to relax on the days that we weren't at the parks.
The location for the Disney Parks was amazing, just 10 mins to all of them - we didn't do Universal, but did head out to Kennedy Space Centre, and again it was easy to get onto all the highways.
I would definitely recommend this villa and resort if you want a relaxing stay at Disney, and want to come home refreshed and not exhausted! Thank you Lisa and Steve we would definitely like to come back!
Stayed here for a week in October and had a wonderful time. Villa was well equipped including a highchair and cot for my 7 month old daughter. Lovely pool and comfortably furnished. Very close to Applebees and Mannys (for good reasonably priced food) as well as a large publix for some grocery shopping. Ideally situated to access Disney via Sherberth road and can get to Animal Kingdom in no time. Great stay!
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Encantada and would not hesitate to book with Lisa again in the future. The property was clean, comfortable and well maintained. The communication between Lisa was always excellent and Lisa was very helpful regarding local areas and services. The communal facilities within Encantada were fabulous for the children. The home was well equipped and had everything we needed for the perfect holiday. We would love to use this property again in the future, we experienced no problems whatsoever .

Just back and this is a great Villa. Perfect if you are visiting Disney. You just pop out the estate onto the 192 and 10-15 mins max and you are in Disney. (Animal Kingdom has an entrance on a back road which is just minutes from the villa, very accessible)
Lots of supermarkets, shops and plenty of restaurants. You don't need to travel far to get great food. Went to WAWA Gas station for the car too. Very reasonable priced and friendly too.
We golfed across the road at a top golf Course, could just get a taxi to it so we could have a few beers.
Cracking pool, temperatures were great the whole time we stayed. It was cleaned regularly and looked after.
The villa itself is great. Slept 8 no problem. Large rooms with a great selecting of TV channels. Fridge/Freezer was excellent. We freezed a lot of water bottles everyday for the parks and the Fridge also has an ice machine in it. Perfect for when you come home at night.
Air Conditioning was easy to use and kept the house at the temperature we liked.
The clubhouse onsite which also has two pools is a nice facility to use.
Nothing really more to say. If you are looking for an nice villa near supermarkets, restaurants, shops and Disney then you will not get much better than this. As soon as I seen this I knew I had found the perfect Villa for visiting Orlando. Just everything I feel you want for you vacation is here.
I feel when booking villas you need one as close as possible to everything you need. The less time you spend on the road driving the more time you have to enjoy the Parks and the Villa.
A lovely, comfortable house in a brilliant location for shops, restaurants and the Disney Parks. Comfortable beds, spotlessly clean and all the amenities we could wish for. The main pools at the clubhouse are perfect for a day's rest and keep an eye out for eagles and terrapins in the lake! I'd have no hesitation in booking again.
We had a great holiday in Encantada.the house was spotless and the boys loved the pool. Lisa was exceptionally helpful during the poking progress and did some research for me regarding things to do. Thank you we would definitely recommend and already have!
