A holiday to remember

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. The location is spot on for visiting Disney or any area of Orlando. We spent 2 weeks at this home for the Christmas and New Year holidays. The size was perfect for 10 adults. The swimming pool/hot tub were enjoyable after a day at the parks. The owner, Eric, and manager, Dee, were very responsive and accommodating in answering my questions and fulfilling some requests. I would strongly recommend this home to anyone staying in the Orlando area and visiting Disney. I will definitely keep this home on my list for future visits.

Perfect!!! Location, size, amenities, cleanliness

  • 5 of 5

The home was better than described. The layout was perfect for our needs and the game room and pool were a hit. The home was very well cleaned as well as properly maintained.

We rented for 1 week - the first half- 4 days-, my wife and I chaperoned 10 (16 year old) volleyball players until the end of the tournament . The second half 5 mom's and their daughters moved in for the remaining days. So this review can be taken from the point of view of 2 adults and 10 teenagers as well as 6 adults and 6 children (multiple families). The homes suited both very well. The tournament was both at the Orange County convention center (20 mins) and Disney's ESPN Sports Complex (12 mins). The location is incredible for DisneyWorld because you can get on property quickly ahead of the traffic jams. It is still nice for Universal Studio/Seaworld/Convention Center but there can be delays at certain times of day. Frankly in that area you can be a mile away and heavy traffic will be a problem that area is simply congested.

This home became our base from which we went in all directions, in addition t the Theme Parks we visited Tampa and Clearwater Beach, Cocoa Beach, restaurant in Clermont (Sarah's Greek Cuisine - highly recommended) and visited family in Georgia. The home is perfectly situated to freeway/highway access in any direction and still close to restaurants and groceries.

The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare and feed 12 +. I think the reason it fit so well was that it was big enough and there was enough to do that everyone could get together, or they could be spread out at the pool, in the game room, watching TV and/or just hanging out enjoying a book.

If you have a larger group and need a place for 8-12, you can not go wrong with this home. Please do me a favor though, take care of it and clean up so when I come back next year with the next team we can enjoy just as much as we did this year.

I know when you are looking at places to rent online, you can be very apprehensive about whether the pictures are true or if the description is accurate. Let me put your fears to rest. This place was AMAZING!!! I had gotten burned before when I rented a house in Florida but his house was everything in the pictures and more. There were 11 of us including 3 children and there was ample room and the pool was great after long days at the parks. Speaking of the parks, you are very very close and there are tons of shopping and restaurants right by the house. The owner and the property manager could not have been more accommodating. If I ever get to Orlando area again, I will for sure book this house. Thank you to the owners, Mr. and Mrs. Rowlands for letting our family use your beautiful home. Do not hesitate about renting this house. You will love it!!!

Butterfly Crossing was a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Butterfly Crossing was a great house! It lived up to the expectations that we had as the house was nice and clean and was exactly as described in the listing. Eric was wonderful to work with as he was always prompt in his replies. He immediately responded to a request to fix a damaged screen due to a recent storm. Eric made sure our stay was exactly what was promised in the listing.

My Junior Olympic team participated in a National Volleyball tournament so this house was in the perfect location for us. Our drives to the playing venues were short so it allowed time for us to take in some of the Disney attractions.

The pool and game room were in constant use by my players and they enjoyed every moment. Having the ability for the entire team to watch a movie together is something we could never have accomplished in a hotel.

If, in the future, our club participates in this National tournament again, we would be sure to seek out Butterfly Crossing as our choice of homes in the Orlando area! We "made memories"!!

Thanks Eric and Ann for allowing us to rent this great home!
