This is a wonderful place to stay! It is closer to DW and didn't take more than 15 to 20 minutes to reach DW parks. The place is spacious, with nice beds! Only reason we did not give it a 5 was the need for more cooking pots...only had 1 large pit and 2 frying pans. BUT..bar b q grills right outside!
The villa/townhouse is very conveniently located in Orlando. It's about 25 minutes from the Disney parks and about 30 minutes from Universal.
There's a kiddie pool, a regular pool, a small lazy river (bring your own tubes) and a small water slide. There's plenty of chairs and a small tiki style bar at the pool along with a a bar/restaurant and bathrooms.
Front Desk is open 24/7. This is a gated townhouse style community. When you check in, you will receive a card with a bar code for the front gate. You will be issued wrist bands for each member of your party to access the pools.
The villa has a nice layout with a small galley kitchen with a full size refrigerator, oven, microwave and dishwasher along with a toaster. Plates, glasses, mugs, silverware and dishes are there as well.
There's a master bedroom on the ground level with a full bathroom. Also, a half bath off the kitchen. A good size dining room/living room with a large television. Wi-fi is available throughout the house.
Upstairs is a master bedroom with a full bath and two bedrooms with 2 twin beds in each room and a full bath in the hall. The washer/dryer combo is in an upstairs closet.
One of the best things is that a Publix grocery store is less than a mile away so you can pick up anything you need without going very far.
We really enjoyed our stay and liked being away from the constant buzz of staying at Disney. We would definitely stay there again.
The property was adequately clean. I find the concept of comforters on the beds very unsettling, they had not been laundered and I was concerned about the hygeine. Also, the property could do with an electric kettle, it boasted a coffee maker but had an antiquated hob and kettle to boil water for tea. There were no overhead lights in the bedrooms and the 2 or 3 of thebedside lamp bulbs had blown, meaning there was no light at all in 3 bedrooms. I was required to make payment of over 300 dollars to the resort, this was more than cheeky since the clubhouse and bar were under refurbishment, the pool area was cramped with insufficient beds or sunshades. I only once in 3 weeks had a refuse collection.
My biggest complaint is that I rented the property for 3 weeks and would not normally expect not to have an interim clean and fresh laundry, it is unacceptable to be told that there is a washing machine/dryer for me to do it myself.
We travel to orlando often and are always trying new places. When we travel with more then just the kids, we search for Townhomes. We were very pleased with this town home. There was plenty of room, it was clean, and had everything we could possibly need to make us feel comfortable. There was even a Publix less than a mile down the road which was an added bonus! If I had to say anything negative at all, the only thing would be that the pool was a little far from the town home, making it difficult for people like my elderly mom to walk there. I would stay again and I would recommend if you're looking for a spacious place near the parks.
Our family usually camps but due to it being Christmas week, there were no campsites available. This place popped up and we thought we would give it a shot. It was perfect! We have 6 kids and we had more than enough room. It was very clean and secure! We were not expecting it to be as nice as it is. We live in a resort town and we know the more you pay, the nicer the place. Being on a budget with it being Christmas, we figured it will do. After all, the pics looked nice. Like I said, it defiantly exceeded our expectations. The owner, Lisa, was a text away to help with any questions or concerns. This was perfect for our family and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay! When we visit again, we will check here first for availability.
The house is great and we would definitely stay again. The beds are very comfortable. A great place with lots of room for our family group of 8. The only reason for 4 and not 5 stars was there is a serious lack of towels. Very few bath towels, no hand towels whatsoever.
