"We had a great time -- your home is beautiful and totally exceeded expectations.
Our reaction when we entered on the first day was “wow, this is a really nice place!” .. Laurie did a great job decorating. We appreciated the attention to detail, cleanliness, and fresh feel.
When at Disney, our girls mentioned a few times about wanting to go back to hang out at the house and swim (instead of rides and princesses!) They now want us to buy them bunk beds and install a pool in our back yard..
All in all it was a great trip and we would confidently recommend your Florida home to any of our friends and family.

Finally all settled back into being home from a beautiful vacation and just wanted to send you a quick email.
Let me start by saying , how much each and everyone of my family loved staying at your rental home. From the moment you unlock the door , you feel this very warm embrace. We felt at home immediately as if we had been there before. Visually , your home was very pleasing and inviting. It was very well located and we found it easy to get around each day.
My family and I enjoyed a Disney theme park everyday and looked forward to the evening when we returned back "home" to unwind. It was very quiet and clean thus making it super easy to unwind. My little girl wanted to live there and kept calling your home beautiful.
One day our travels will lead us back to Disney I am sure and when that happens , if available, your rental home will be first on our list!
The clubhouse attendant was very helpful to us with all the information we needed about the parks and ticket purchases. It was a fun place for our kids to hang out and it was very clean.
We are from Boston and this was the 1st family vacation for me, my husband and 5 kids. My daughter's boyfriend also came with us so it was a party of 8 for 8 days 7 nights. So you can get a better picture of the space my oldest is Alex 21, then Idallis is 20, the twins Madison & Dante are 18 and the little one is Nia 12. My daughter's boyfriend is Jonathan 20. There was plenty of space and things to do for all of us. I booked this property back in March based on how nicely decorated the property looked in the pictures. I was a little worried because there were no reviews and I am big on that. A few weeks before our trip we got a call informing us that the owner was going to sell the property and it was no longer available. Our family thought it was an omen. Reluctantly we chose one of the other options given to us. A few weeks after that we got another call informing us that the sale fell through and it was back up for grabs would we be interested in getting it back. Of course we would! I was pleasantly surprised over how accurate the pictures were. The house was open, airy and clean. I work in the property management business and worried about bedbugs when traveling so when I got there I checked ALL the beds and would not allow my kids to even put the suitcases in the rooms but everything down to the mattresses was clean and well taken care of. The game room was fun to hang out in and even my 12yr old played pool. The hole house was well stocked with pretty much anything we would need.
The next day we went to the club house and the attendant was so friendly and helped us understand all the parks, prices and options we had. In the 8 days that we were there we went to Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, City Walk, Purchased dinner & a movie packages for the family to eat at City Walk. We ate at Margaretville and we watched Independence Day 2. We went to Disney Springs where we watched performers and ate at Bongos which was an AWESOME experience. We also went to the outlets, Super Target, Super Walmart & TJ Maxx. On our last day we went back to City Walk and ate at Bubba Gumps Restaurant. We had plenty of family water wars in the pool and I genuinely enjoyed being on the property.
If I had to think of any cons it would be that the property is located a little out of the way. There's A LOT of construction going on all over the place outside the property. And the screens around and above the pool area should be cleaned better to get rid of all the spiders and bugs. The screens had some small tears at the bottom in some sections where lizards and water bugs would get it. I wasn't too worried about it because it was outside of the house so it was fine with us. All the bedrooms, living room & game room had a tv except for one bedroom where our sons slept in and it would've been nice for them to have a tv. It would also be good to have a lot of take out menus in the desk for the late arrivals like us.
All in all it was 8 of us for a week and the space, cleanliness and clubhouse amenities was great! I will definitely go back and have highly recommended this property to my family and friends.
