Travelled as a group of family and friends, 9 adults and 2 infants and spent the two weeks leading up to Christmas at this property. Arriving from the UK we found it to be perfect shorts and t shirt weather. The property is very well equipped with nice quality items from cook/tableware through to furnishing/linen, etc. The layout of this property affords plenty of space to relax and pursue a variety of activities. The veranda and pool area looks out over an informal lawned area with a Nature Reserve beyond and is positioned in a way which is not overlooked by neighbours. The south facing aspect gives uninterrupted sunlight throughout the day and views of both sunrise and sunset. The property is within a quiet gated Community/Resort which benefits from the Clubhouse with Pool, Gym, Lazy River, Bar & Cafe, etc. There is a Publix Supermarket and a Target 'department store' close by, along with plenty of Diners, Restaurants, etc. and of course within easy driving distance of the Disney attractions, Kennedy Space Centre, Airport, etc. Bottom line ..... yes I would stay again.
Just 20min drive to all the Disney attractions, this huge property is perfect for large families or groups. It's quiet, safe/secure and with attractive surroundings/landscaping. The private pool (with insect protection) was ideal to cool off, or there's a communal pool with cafe etc. just a few minutes walk away. All the rooms are very spacious with comfy furniture and all nicely decorated. Fun games room too. The owners were very cooperative and quick to respond to any requests via email. Looking forward to returning next year!
My family and I have recently returned from an amazing holiday in this beautiful home which is located within a few minutes drive of Championsgate. We enjoyed the house as much as the parks and shopping! The house is spotlessly clean with a well equipped kitchen and bedrooms which are luxuriously comfortable. The pool and Jacuzzi were heated perfectly and we had some fun nights in the games room.
We had the misfortune of hurricane Irma towards the end of our holiday and Oliver and Chelsea were very helpful in accommodating our needs.
Thank you for a wonderful stay!
After staying at this lovely villa for the last two weeks, I can truly say it has something for everyone. A quiet, private pool and jacuzzi, games room, two ample living areas with brilliant TVs, and enough space for all the family to enjoy some 'down time' after a hectic day at Disney!
I visited with my boyfriend and his parents and we were all really impressed with how comfortable the beds were! The villa is well stocked with everything you would need to cook and eat a family meal, and a BBQ is also available by the pool. I am a wheelchair user, and the villa perfectly suited my needs; the ground floor bedroom and en suite was particularly handy, as were the handrails leading into the pool. There is a small 10cm step into the villa and out to the pool area, and Oliver and Ray plan to ramp these and remove the ground floor en suite bath and replace it with a 'roll in' shower from December onwards. They are also purchasing some brilliant equipment to ensure that those with sensory impairments have the best stay possible, so I would certainly recommend getting in touch with them, should you have any additional requirements.
The resort facilities that are only a short stroll away from the villa must not be overlooked, either. There is a communal pool and brand new 'lazy river' experience, both of which have 'roll in' entrances for wheelchair users (and a hoist is also available for entrance and exit to the lazy river!) Shaded seating and loungers for sun-worshippers are both available, and the clubhouse can provide all with a bite to eat in air-conditioned luxury.
Many thanks to Oliver and Ray for such a great stay - we'll be back!!
The venue was perfect for our 4 families to holiday together. With children of all ages, the pool at the house was a godsend for those inbetween days. The community pool, just a short walk away was also superb with a new lazy river just opened. Facilities at the gated community are still being upgraded with a poolside cafe to come next.
The location of the house was ideal for Disney / universal and a whole host of visitor attractions.
The house was amazing & the owner and property manager were very responsive.We did not want to leave
This lovely house is located on the Solterra development close to Championsgate just off the I-4. A supermarket at Championsgate, less than 5 minutes drive from the house, is very convenient as well as a Walgreens.
The house is extremely spacious and offers considerable space. Upstairs has its own lounge as well as the lounge downstairs so two family groups could stay side by side each with their own individual space.
We were just 3 in our party but the house never felt too big for us. We enjoyed the pool area alhough the August afternoon weather (thunderstorms) worked against us a little. Instead we spent many hours in the games room playing table tennis and pool - our teenage son loved it. We usually end up trekking from hotel to hotel on our US holidays so to be able to self cater was a realt treat for us with so many goodies in the supermarket.
We spent an hour at the club house on our first afternoon as we were a little early for check in but, despite meaning to use this facility we found ourselves staying at the house as it was so pleasant to be there.
Bed linens were very smart and the whole house fresh and clean.
It's about 20-30 minutes from the house to the Lake Buena Vista are where many of the parks are situated, a little less to the Disney exists but all very dependent on the traffic.
