Stayed here booked through Villa Direct - feel sorry for the owners.
The units are nice but he amenities are awful.
No staff - pools are filthy - spa not working
Bar closed (no staff)
Gift Shop not open once in two weeks
No restaurant or pool service;
Garbage not dumped in pool area
Had to take your own garbage to the dump! and I mean Dump! racoons and cats crawling over the garbage at night - stinks;
When inquired at tour desk, told that it was the responsibility of the homeowners group which was no longer active.
It was not crowed however - only about 8 units with cars during the peak season.
Buyer Be Ware.

I just finished a stay with my family over the 4th of july weekend. This place is amazing and great for young children. The resort has a beach entry pool which is perfect for little kids. We loved have our own private pool, as we do nto have one at home.

will defintly stay again.

I booked this resort because we were looking for a four bedroom close to Disney. It said it was brand new with a pool!! What more could you ask for? When we arrived the customer service area was very rude, we entered the house and I could not believe it. It looked as if it had not been cleaned at all. The carpets were filthy, the handrails leading upstairs were so sticky that I did not want to know what was on it. The blinds were broken and the sheets were stained. Don't waste your money!!! They are not brand new, they are not even clean!!! You pay for a cleaning fee which is 100.00...it is a waste of money!

This was our first family vacation to Orlando and the first time we have booked a private townhouse. We were nervous about booking privately, but our hosts were very helpful and put us at ease. The unit was very clean, well stocked with the essentials and very quite. The only downside was no wireless in the unit.

My only complaints would be about the management of the clubhouse. The pool area was very nice, but there wasn't much upkeep and was very dirty. The clubhouse was nice, but not sure what the purpose of having it is if the hours are from 9am to 5pm. No early morning workouts or checking emails.

Overall a very nice experience...but don't expect much from the clubhouse.

We arrived for our 6 night stay after planning our Orlando trip for only about 1 month. We were so lucky to find the Encantada because it was like we were living in a single family home. We rented a 4 BR 3 bath townhouse for $165/night. There were 4 adults and 6 children...12, 10, 8, 8, 5, 5. Plenty of room for all of us! The best part was the pool right outside our sliding glass doors. The kids were in it every single day except for the day we left. It was clean and someone even came and cleaned it while we were at Disney. Since we had a 4 BR, we had an end unit and it was very quite! The day before we left, we noticed the windows and doors are not that thick, because while we were in our unit, we could hear the kids next door in thier pool, loud and clear. I think that would have been annoying if it were every day we were there, but we lived with it. The clubhouse itself was nice and the 2 pools were heated, but the kids only went in once. It was so much easier just opening the doors and stepping into the one at our unit. We didn't pay for the heat ($25/day) and although it was chilly, the kids still went in it.

As for the unit itself, it was IMMACULATE when we arrived, with the exception of the carpeting. There were A LOT of stains on the carpet going upstairs and it looked as though someone tried to remove one of them because they totally bleached out a 6"x10" area on one of the steps. Also, for some strange reason, the handrail was VERY sticky! I tried a Clorox wipe (brought a whole tub with me) and it was still sticky. We had about half of a roll of paper towels and toilet paper on the roll in each bathroom, but that was about it. Everything else needs to be brought in or bought. The water tasted absolutely horrible! You need to buy some or put up with the taste of dirt.

It takes about 20 minutes to get to Disney and longer for Sea World and Universal. The traffic was really, really bad every morning, so we got a later start (around 2 or 3pm) and stayed later into the night. That worked for us since we had some pretty hot days while we were there. There is a Walgreens and 7 11 right on the corner and about 1-2 miles away is a Super Target. The location was very convienent and quite.

We really loved this place, but I feel like it may get run down in a couple of years. Encantada has only been open for 8 months and our unit 'felt' older than that. No color on the walls and blah carpeting. In the master bathroom, there was water damage from the shower door not being closed all the way. I would think that would be something that would have been repaired before being rented. The Encantada was not fully rented because a lot of units had green water in thier pools and not many cars were it the parking spaces. We were coming and going at all hours and it never seemed like it was even half rented.

All in all, we had a great time and would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for privacy and saving some money.
