About Gareth Allen and Adam Harrison

Casa La Jolla is owned by the Harrison and Allen families.

Gareth Allen and Adam Harrison purchased this villa in 2008

Why Gareth Allen and Adam Harrison chose Disney / Orlando

We chose to purchase our villa in Indian Creek due to its proximity to Disney World (less than 10 minutes drive to Magic Kingdom car park).

What makes this villa unique

Whether its spending time in the pool and spa, playing pool, foosball or air hockey, challenging the kids to games on the xbox 360, watching one of the many DVDs with the family or simply relaxing on the pool deck, there is always something to do at Casa La Jolla.

Perfect Place for Families with Children

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Our family made life-long memories at this residence! The location of the home was close to shopping, grocery, and pharmacy stores yet away from the chaos of town. The open green area across from the home had a playground, sidewalks, and was the perfect place to fly kites. The pool was clean and we paid the extra to get heat, and it is well worth the money as we were able to swim at all hours of the day or night - even when the air was cooler. The game room was such a treat, and family-friendly movies were available if we would have wanted a movie night. We were traveling with two children under the age of 2, so the pack n plays, strollers, optional bed rails, and high chairs and booster were appreciated. Plenty of bedding and towels were provided, and having a washer and dryer on vacation was super handy. This was a nice neighborhood, with plenty of parking available in the drive as well as across the road. The owners were friendly and responsive whenever I had questions prior to arrival, but everything was so well explained in the welcome letter and book once we entered the home that we didn't need to communicate with them during our stay. If we are blessed enough to ever go back to Orlando and need a home close to Disney, Universal, or Sea World, we would for sure book this house again.!

Jag vill verkligen rekommendera detta hus, det var bättre än vad bilder på nätet visade. Rent och fint, Wifee funkade perfekt och poolen var kanon. Ett väldigt lugnt område, med lagom bilavstånd till affärer mm.

Skall vi åka tillbaka så kommer vi att försöka få hyra detta hus igen.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the kind words. English Translation: Perfect. We would really recommend this house, it was better than the pictures online showed. Clean and nice, Wifi worked perfectly and the pool was great. A very quiet area, with moderate driving distance to shops etc. Shall we go back, we will try to rent this house again.

We had a great time at this house! There was 11 of us in our group and there was plenty of room for everyone. The pool and hot tub were amazing! Our kiddos swam everyday! Disney is only about 10 minutes away. Close to grocery stores and restaurants.

House was good, but we had some issues

  • 3 of 5
Verified Stay

The house was very nice and spacious, which we liked. We have a group of three adults and three kids, and there was plenty of space to play and relax. The reason I have a neutral review, is because of several issues I had. I paid to have the pool and spa heated, and when we arrived at the house, the pool was not ready. We contacted the owner, Adam, and he graciously helped us, and gave us a refund for two days. It was a nice gesture, and I was thankful for it. However, after a couple of days of not using the pool, my kids tried to swim and the pool was freezing. I contacted the owner, Adam, again and this time he just explained that the pool was heated and "working fine". Adam explained to me that the pool was "currently 84.7 degrees...it may feel cooler if the outdoor temperature is colder.. and it's supposed to be slightly cooler than body temperature." The second time I contacted him and he gave me that response made me give him a low review. I have been in many a heated pool, and that pool was not heated that day or two. So, the initial issue he addressed but the second time he just explained it away. Maybe he thought was I just trying to get my money back, but I wasn't, there were real pool problems. We had so many issues with the pool, that it wasn't worth me paying him $20/day for 8 days, even if he refunded me for 2 days because it probably wasn't working for at least 4 days.

I would say that if you have problems here with the house or pool, it will be tough. The owner, Adam, lives in Britain. Also, weird he can refute what I felt when I touched the pool water, versus him reading a electronic link to the pool from Great Britain. Plus, the electronic pool link was malfunctioning when we got there. He has a site manager, but nothing beats talking directly to the house owner when you have issues. She has to ultimately contact him to get an issue resolved anyways.

Even though it was a vacation home, I guess we thought there would be shampoo and toilet paper. We stayed there for 8 days, so we had to buy our own toilet paper and shampoo. I have stayed in vacation homes before, and they had plenty of shampoo, soap, and toilet paper, but just be prepared. You have to spend money on necessities.

Great thing is how close it is to Disney World Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios. Made it so convenient! The house does have lots of games to play and an xbox and movies. Overall, it was decent, but too many pools issues.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you experienced some initial issues with the pool heat. Unfortunately, due to the thermostat breaking just prior to your arrival, the pool/spa heat wasn’t immediately available. Our Managing Agent was at the villa as you arrived and resolved the issue within 1 hour of your arrival. As the pool required time to warm up we refunded 2 days pool/spa heat as a gesture of goodwill. I also spoke directly to a member of your party on the phone that evening to offer my apologies. With regards to your comments “However, after a couple of days of not using the pool .......the pool was freezing...." we need to make readers of this review aware that you contacted us at 10.09pm UK time on the 16th December – the day before your departure (6 days after you arrived, on the 10th), following which we responded immediately. Yes, we are based in the UK, however we have an on-site Managing Agent who is available 24/7. We make it clear to all guests that they should contact our Managing Agent if there any concerns. You did not do this in this case. Our Managing Agent can resolve 99% of issues without contacting us, contrary to your opinion. When you refer to “so many issues with the pool”, again, this is simply not true. The pool/spa heat was provided the day after your arrival (and you were compensated for this) and then we heard nothing from you until the evening before your departure stating that the pool was cold. At no point did you contact our Managing Agent, who could have resolved the issue. With regards shampoo/toilet paper - we are not entirely sure as to why you would expect toiletries to be provided for the duration of a stay in a self-catering villa. The villa description makes specific reference to the fact that these items are not provided. We do provide at least one roll of toilet paper and soap in each bathroom for guests on arrival. Again though, you didn’t contact our Managing Agent for clarification, you simply made us aware in this review. We are very sorry for the pool issues, however you gave us no opportunity to resolve these as a) you didn’t contact our Managing Agent at any time, b) you waited until the evening of the day before your departure before contacting us and c) made no reference to having 4 days of pool issues. As owners we take great pride in the positive reviews we receive for our guest relations and we're sorry if you didn't feel that you receive the level of service we are regularly praised for.

The house was very clean. We enjoyed the hot tub and pool immensely. My little girl loved the game room. We had everything we needed and it was so nice to return to a house at the end of the day instead of being cooped up in a hotel room. Would definitely recommend!

Great villa & location for a fantastic holiday in Florida

  • 5 of 5

The villa is a great size - both in living areas and the bedrooms. The pool is also a great size for the number of people that stay.

Location is perfect for Disney (less than 15 mins door to door) and supermarkets / restaurants. International Drive & Universal are ~40 mins on most days.

We really enjoyed the villa on our rest days, it has all amenities required and the cable TV was great for the football on the weekends :-)

I'd recommend this villa to anyone staying - we were 2 families (2 adults & 2 kids each ranging from 6 to 14) and everyone enjoyed it greatly.
