'First to say Kenny was wonderful! He responded fast on everything, he explained everything and took care of everything for us! The home was exactly as you see the pictures on the internet. Very comfortable , clean, tons of room, loved,loved,loved the master bath!! At night after a long day at Disney it was wonderful to relax in the hot tub then head to the large shower and just relax!! We had 11 people total, tons of room for everyone, everyone loved the home,kids really excited over their rooms, excellent neighborhood, felt very safe in the gated community, close to everything. We could be anywhere we needed within minutes. I highly recommend this home and Kenny to anyone looking to stay in a home instead of a small hotel room. You will not be disappointed.

Cozy and welcoming home!

  • 4 of 5

This home is cozy and spacious with comfortable seating for 14 guests at meal times. Privacy is guaranteed on premises. Kenny (the owner) is as accessible and accommodating as his home.I recommend it to all who plan to visit Orlando in big groups.

Nice place, just needs fixing

The villa is really nice, we just wish it was a little more clean. Doesn't seem like any cleaning was done prior to our check in and the blinds are need of maintenance

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a weekend in this house and I can affirm that they were the best vacation time I ever had with my family. The house is spacious, comfortable, the bedrooms are big and the linens smelled so fresh and clean. The bathrooms perfectly cleaned and the pool and spa amazing. There was a Walmart in about 2 miles and two Publix supermarkets pretty close. The Orlando major attractions were about 20-25 minutes from there. The neighborhood is so quiet. The owner is very polite and he kept a good communication. We highly recommend this property for your next vacation in Orlando, FL, definitely We will come back.

High Gate Park Vacation Home!!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this home for 8 nights, 9 days. The owner, Kenny, was a pleasure to communicate with leading up to the trip; he was courteous, prompt, and informative. Our deposit on the home was refunded within four days after our stay. The home was spacious and tidy. The only issue we had was that the hot tub heat was not working on the first day. However, we called the property manager and the heater was replaced on the second day! Some minor points were that the house needs a thorough cleaning/touch ups and the drains in the kitchen and ensuite shower were very slow, which is probably common in these homes however. The pool and hot tub were amazing features. We were within a five-minute drive to any amenities, conveniently close to Disney/Universal, etc., and only an hour from the beaches (Daytona and Cocoa). We felt comfortable in the home and slept very well. (High Gate Park seems like a bit of a ghost town though as there seemed to rarely be any people or lights in the other homes.) One reason we choose this home was because of the nice bedroom linens/blankets (e.g. Princess for our daughter). We also used the ping pong table in the garage one night as a family and the kids used the air hockey table together everyday. We would more than likely stay there again. It is a beautiful area, perfect location, and the owner/property manager were ideal.

Great Family trip

  • 5 of 5

We rented this big house with a group of 10 family members with friends! We had a great day in Universal on day 1 and on day 2 we chose to stay in and have a BBQ and pool fun! The pool was very warm for January and felt great! We had a lot of fun! Kenny made the arrangements very easy and we will definitely recommend this house and go back again one day!
