First, this location is perfect if you aren't staying on a Disney World resort. Geographically, it is in the middle of Disney World and downtown Orlando. Additionally, it is off a main street with any and every restaurant and store you might need for you and your family.
The villa was definitely well appointed, all the basic appliance necessities were there (except a Keurig, but doesn't hurt to make coffee the old fashioned way). There are perfect sized TVs in every room. So, kids and no one else gets to hog the remote! The furniture was clean and comfortable. And, a door alarm out to the pool. Which was a great size, clean and perfect way to relax but keep the kids occupied.
As well, Raquel was attentive and very responsive to any questions we had during our stay. Definitely will be back!
Loved the house didn't wan to leave the only thing was the air didn't go below 73 it stayed warm but other than that it was absolutely amazing
Just come back after two weeks at this villa. Will try to give a useful review :)
Perfect location for Disney! About 20 minutes straight up the road to all the parks which were very easy to find, even without sat nav. Also on route to Disney lots of places to visit such as mini golf or a sweet treats place that sells amazing ice creams and other treats. Facilities are near but will mention them later
The villa is a good size, although there were only two of us you can tell you could happily have more although word of warning only one family bathroom so could be tricky. The electric system to get in was brilliant as it saves you having to carry a key around/ worry about locking one away if you go out. We loved that the villa came equipped with items such as the pool table, dart board, ice hockey/ping pong table and a wii (which got a lot of use!) meant on the rainy days we were still able to have fun! Bed was super comfy in the master which is important due to hubbys back problems.
Although advertised as a private pool and the pictures show plants around the edge so it looks private the one side was completely open for show. As the neighbouring property looked our way it was a inconvenience as they were sadly moving during the time we were there then resulted in five days of moving trucks going backwards and forwards so felt a bit uncomfortable sun bathing. Could do with a fence or a hedge. Also the pool is very rough and got a few nasty grazes!
We arrived rather jet lagged to find a bare cupboards and no advise on the local area just a generic book. Although it mentions buying a welcome pack some basic items i.e. Washing up liquid, bin bags might of been nice? Also could the book be updated to advise where the local supermarkets are/ advising on some nice restaurants? Most villas I've rented have a guest book so people can recommend places and advise where to visit at least.
Overall we loved our holiday and with a few adjustments could be perfect!
Awesome stay! Two families with 4 kids. Couldn't have been better. Super clean, close to grocery store, restaurants, theme parks, etc. Definitely will be booking in the future!
Lovely clean contemporary home
Very comfortable and kids loved having the pool
Car is essential as nothing in walking distance .
Only small fault is lack of basic facilities i.e. Salt pepper laundry detergent . Worth bringing a couple of tablets with you unless you want to have to buy a gallon size of detergent here !! Also only two dishwasher tablets left for our use
Other than that a great villa
Situated in a quite residential area . No close shops nearby a car is essential. House in good condition . More suitable for 6 people than 8 due to very small shared bathroom and limited seating in lounge. The only other downside was very noisy aircon unit and internal surfaces of swimming pool was very abrasive resulting in grazes to knees and feet of all the people who used it . The washing machine broke down and was replaced with a new one almost immediately. ( full marks to management company for efficiency) . On the wholethis was a very nice place to stay we would definitely go back again.
