Villa was in good condition with everything we needed as a family of 8.
The location was fantastic with security manned gates at the entrance to the estate gave great peace of mind.
A sort drive away on the main road provided access to restaurants and shops.
All Disney locations are a short drive away down the I4. Couldn't have been easier for our first Florida trip.
Would definitely book villa again when we are ready to come again.
I booked this home for our family vacation this year and our vacation was ruined. So knowing that the owner will get a chance to rebut I'll give you the best argument I can think of. My family and I had been planning a vacation since February. We chose Orlando, Florida because we wanted to go to Universal Studios and just enjoy the freshness of the city. About an hour before our check in I got a call from the owner who informed me that the a/c was broken and couldn't be fixed until the next morning. I told her I had family members who were on medication and couldn't be in the heat. She offered to pay for our hotels for the night, but, being that we had 15 guest, I didn't want to cause that type of hardship on her. So I told her I would speak with them and let them know that she told me the air was broken and that she also told me that the house was about 80 degrees and it would be in the low 70's outside that night so it shouldn't be too bad. She also informed me that she would refund me for the night and if we went to get fans she would reimburse me, so we decided "one night shouldn't be too bad"... Guy came on Saturday, we left for Universal Studios and he claimed to had fixed the air but he did not! He also told her that we (my family) dropped the air down to the 60's, which was also a lie.The air would blow cool for about 5 minutes when we first turned it on then NOTHING for the remainder of the time. So it was hot all three nights, I'd returned the fans that we purchased (trying to be considerate of her) flies were flying everywhere, the trash outside stink, I was studying for another BAR exam, sweating, and just MISERABLE. OUR VACATION WAS RUINED BY FLIES AND HEAT AND THE ONLY ESCAPE WAS THE A/C IN OUR VEHICLES!! I spent the trip trying to be considerate of her and she had the nerve to question me about the a/c, the trash that we left IN THE DUMPSTER (which there was already trash there), and told me she had to think about whether she wanted to refund me for that one night that she promised. I find it quite ironic that she had a fan in EVERY single room and she also had fly swatters and bug spray... My guess is that she had been having problems with her A/C and her flies but just didn't tell it to me!! Nevertheless, she has a very beautiful home and the pictures are quite accurate.
Our family had a spectacular stay here. The distance between all parks was acceptable and we were able to retreat back to the villa for privacy and relaxation. We would highly recommend for any vacation getaway.
Went on a family vacation to experience a Disney vacation. We decided to stay in a house -vs- a hotel, it was the best decision. The owner was wonderful to work with. The house accommodated all 9 of us with a few beds to spare. We all enjoyed the game room and swimming pool. We did have the pool and hot tub headed per a recommendation in another review, I also would recommend to do this. There was plenty of space for quite time too. the gated community housed other rented property and home owners. We walked in the neighborhood several times. It felt safe and secured. The neighborhood was very quite. There was several stores, restaurants, gas station, and expressways close to the house. I would definetly stay here again.
Our family had an amazing stay in this beautiful home! There was so much for the kids to do with the pool and game room! The pool and hot tub were put to good use by our kids:) The home was clean and there was plenty of room for all of us. The neighborhood for walks for very nice. We would definately stay again. Just a couple minor things was the drip pan on the grill should be replaced and a couple more supplies like paper towel and dish wash detergent. Very minor and wouldn’t change wanting to stay there again. Wish I could put more then 5 stars! Loved it!
Arrival was simple and straightforward, being checked in by security at the gates and directed to the Villa (third nearest Villa to security gate).
The entire family felt safe here in this family friendly environment.
The property had 4 good bathrooms, together with an inside and outside downstairs toilet and wash room.
There was an excellent Walmart less than a mile away and also a Publix Supermarket a little over 2 miles the other way on highway 27.
The route to Disney, Universal etc. is very straightforward, if a little longer than we had expected. Most times it was 30 minutes to Disney, but an average of 40 to SeaWorld, Universal or the airport.
Paying the extra to have the pool and hot tub heated was well worth it and there was a games room with air hockey, pool and table football - although all these could be updated.
The Kitchen and the washing and drying machine all worked well and there is a good BBQ.
I believe the owner is planning some major refurbishment over the next couple of years and our family will consider this Villa for our next trip to the United States.
6 adults and 8 children lived in the house for a week. The area was very nice and quiet and felt very safe since it is behind guarded gate. We had no problems with beds for everybody, and the house has plenty of bathrooms. The playroom was not tidy though and all facilities were not in good order. In the kitchen we missed some cooking equipment. Also number of glasses, cups and plates was too low for our rather large group of people. But all together we had a great time in the house, and we were all very satisfied. Worth mentioning is also the great information service provided by Jasmine Villa. They always responded quickly to all my emails and kept us fully updated with relevant news.
