My family (4 adults and 4 teens,16,15,14,13) stayed in this stunning property from the 15th to the 29th of June 2018. The villa is in the gated community of High Grove on highway 27 and is well situated for Orlando international airport and commuting to all theme parks.
The villa is perfect for families. I loved the decor as with the hardwood floors in the living area,we could feel at home and comfortable without worrying about the kids spilling drinks. All the bedrooms had a lovely feel to them,I slept like a log in the master bedroom - honestly the best quality sleep I’ve ever had on holiday,the bed was so comfy. I loved the fact that there was small Disney touches in the kids rooms without it feeling too childish for teens. All bathrooms are equipped with hairdryers which was fab as with 4 long haired ladies,it saved packing hairdryers. A roll of toilet paper in each loo was also provided so no worries if you can’t get to the supermarket and need to drop your bags off first. The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of crockery and cutlery and it was fab to have such a huge capacity washer and dryer to keep on top of our washing. Ushma also provides lots of towels for showering and pool towels which was great as saved space in our suitcases and we were able to use them when visiting Volcano Bay and save on the cost of hiring and also for use at the villa’s pool. We loved having our own pool. The kids all enjoyed being able to get up and go for a dip first thing or spend a few hours splashing around after a hot day in the parks. The adults spent plenty of time in the spa- perfect to cool down and relax with book in hand. The pool looks amazing at night with the lights on and it’s great to have it all to yourselves and not have to share.
High Grove is a real haven. Once you’re in the gates,you would never know there is a busy road just beyond them. The villa backs on to a conservation area so felt private as we weren’t overlooked from behind and it was lovely to sit out in the peace and quiet and enjoy the sunshine and a visit from our neighbours- 2 herons who would often be out for a stroll. The amenities such as the club house,play park and crazy golf were a bonus and a couple of times over our visit,we went to the community pool for a change of scenery.
There is an Irish pub serving British food just out-with the gates and Dunkin Donuts,McDonald,Burger King
and many other fast food places in very close proximity,ideal for us with teens as sometimes they preferred stay in the villa for dinner so we didn’t have to go too far out of the way to pick them up food before going out ourselves. Cagans Crossing,a small town centre was a mile up the road and had a good selection of restaurants. I loved Gators Dockside and had the Summer Salad 4 days out of 14! The 192 is where you’ll find tons of restaurants such as Denny’s,IHOP,Mannys,Millers, Golden Corral,Bahama Breeze,Olive Garden- an endless choice all an easy drive away.
If you like to shop,there is a Walmart about 1 mile up the road when you turn left out of the community gates,I loved a solitary walk to look at all the choice and items you can’t buy here in the UK. Rolling Oaks is around 4 miles away where, as well as restaurants,there’s a SuperTarget,Ulta, TJ Maxx,Ross and Dollar Tree.
I would like to thank Ushma and Uday for allowing us to stay at their lovely home. The whole renting process was a pleasure from our first contact and I was able to contact Ushma at any time with any queries and she would get back to me quickly. I would love to visit Magic on Magnolia again and would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking to rent a villa.
The villa was nice and well kept.
I would go there again in a heartbeat.
The communication with the owner was very nice and friendly, she was the best.
Near all main parks, shops or where ever you want to go, it is a gated community so it feels very safe.
The house is as described, very clean and has all the amenities necessary. The location is good and very easy access. Would stay again.
This was our 2nd time staying at this Florida Villa and we booked it again for another stay. Great location for all the parks, stores, restaurants, is a well maintained house and owner is easy to work with. We feel like we're at home and on vacation at the same time. I would highly recommend renting this Villa.
The Villa is brilliant! loads of room, clean, tidy, everything you need. The pool is a good size and clean. 10/15 minutes and you are at Disney, 20/30 minutes to Universal. Walmart across the road, pub just outside the gates. The 192 has an abundance of restaurants (Orlando Real Ale House is a must!). Easy to book. Owner responds to questions quickly. We will stay here again!
The location is perfect. There are just about half hour drive to Disney, the shopping Malls and shopping outlets. The villa and the pool is very clean and everything is working well. Publix and WalMart is about 10 minutes drive away .
The low star rating was because of the soft mattresses and the distance to Disney over all nice place
