A fully air conditioned 3 bedroom condo, with 2 bathrooms, this ground floor unit is very nicely furnished with your comfort in mind. It sleeps 6 people comfortably, and we do restrict occupancy to 6 people to protect the integrity of the home.
The bedrooms consist of a Master with a King size bed and full en-suite facilities, and 2 Queen size bedrooms. It is an usual configuration as it does not include a twin room but it does cater nicely for 3 couples, or for those who prefer to have a little more space to sleep in!. The 2 Queen rooms share a full bathroom. Each bedroom has a 32" flat screen TV with a full and upgraded cable package.
Other features of Casa Alfonso include a fully stocked kitchen, very comfortable living room and dining area, and a laundry room with a full size washer and dryer. Another major plus for this home, as indeed it is with all Oakwater properties, is that it also enjoys a single car garage!.
The main living area boasts a 50 inch plasma television, with a Blu Rayplayer too!. It also has a large sofa, loveseat, and chair, and is decorated in pastel shades, with tranquil colors that offer a very stylish and relaxing appearance. Incidentally, note that this home also enjoys high-speed WIRELESS internet access, which is offered free of charge to all our guests, and that all telephone calls to the US and Canada are free of charge as well.
The kitchen is fully equipped as you would expect, with a dishwasher, microwave, full refrigerator, stove, coffee machine, toaster, blender and waste disposal. Note too that all linens and towels are supplied for your stay in all our homes, with all kitchen utensils and crockery provided as well.
Sliding patio doors from the living area lead onto a screened in patio, from which you can enjoy a tranquil conservation view of one of Oakwaters courtyards. The home is also less than a 2 minute walk from the main Oakwater clubhouse and pool.
Casa Alfonso is destined to be a very popular choice with our clients and compares very favorably with all the beautiful homes we are proud to have in our portfolio. Given the upgraded furnishings, free wi-fi, upgraded cable package, garden view, the great location, and all the facilities that Oakwater Resort offers, this home represents tremendous value for money and comes very highly recommended.
*Please remember that all our homes are no-smoking, and we have a strict no-pets policy. We also remind you that we offer baby items, BBQ's, mid stay cleans, welcome baskets too, and through our friends at Kissimmee Guest Services a range of discounted attraction tickets, so please ask for more details if interested.
Oakwater is a superbly situated resort, just 2 miles from Walt Disney World in Orlando, and is set to become one of the premier vacation vacation resorts in the Kissimmee area. It will certainly be one of the most popular, and it is easy to see why.
The question we are asked the most is, 'how far is this home from Disney World?'. With Oakwater the answer is simple, it is the closest to Disney there is, period.
The amenities are a major plus here too and include a beautiful heated community pool, a games room and fitness center, a clubhouse featuring FREE Wi-fi, and which occasionally offers on-site entertainment!. All this, and a lake to stroll around too!.
With tennis courts already in place, a basketball court and a sand volleyball court too, Oakwater Resort does have it all, yet it remains surprisingly quiet. The resort is full of some of the nicest vacation condos and town-homes you could ever wish to see, and Casa Alfonso is certainly one of them.
Oakwater Resort, in addition to being so close to Disney World, is also very close to all the other major theme parks and attractions, just 20-25 minutes from Universal Studios, 15-20 minutes from Sea World and approximately an hour away from the world famous Kennedy Space Center.
For golfers there are several courses within easy reach including The Legends course at Orange Lake, just a 5 minute drive from this beautiful resort, and there are a host of dining and shopping opportunities very close by too.
If you want to be right in the middle of all the action, and truly enjoy all that the Disney area has to offer, then Oakwater Resort would be an excellent choice, and Casa Alfonso a great place to stay!.

This is a very nice 3 bedroom condo. The secondary bedrooms are a little tight and the beds a bit hard, otherwise it would've been a 5 star. It's located incredibly close to WDW parks. There are several restaurants nearby as well. Entering and exiting the complex was easy with a keypad code vs manned security gate. We would definitely stay there again :)
Loved the house and the pool was great although we didn't use it too much due to the weather.
Only drawback for us was the location as we were visiting universal which is quite a long drive due to the traffic....
The house is much, much better for visiting Disney.
Good communication from the manager.
Exceeded our expectations. Fully equipped, near the parks (10 minutes from Magic Kingdom or so). We'll be back.
My family and I stayed in Casa Alfonso for 10 days and we enjoyed every minute! The condo is clean and well kept. The amenities are exactly as described. The pool area is just perfect. The location is central and easy to access. I would recommend Casa Alfonso whole heartedly!
We really enjoyed our time at this house and everything was as described. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The pool aeria was great and the spa was hot and nice. I would recommend this property, there is shops and restaurants nearby, Outback steakhouse is outstanding.
The house itself was fine, with three exceptions - mattresses were hard, internet service was slow, and hot water was only sufficient for two consecutive quick showers. The house listing indicates it "sleeps 6", but if these 6 get home late at night and everyone needs a shower, four will either have to wait up or face the cold water. Increasing the temperature in the boiler might help, but the solution is more likely to be additional storage.
A note of advice - the house has a telephone, which is great. However, it receives a lot of unsolicited, junk, calls. If you want to have peace, unplug it and only plug it back when you need to use it. During our first night at the property we were awakened by an early morning call, only to hear some automated message about something we did not want nor need.
I say management is poor because they did not keep their word regarding postal service. When we first contacted the property managers, they promised to arrange for mail delivery with the resort (while there, I found out that there is a $50 annual fee for a house to receive mail and have it sorted by resort management). Since our arrival at the property we attempted to get this promise fulfilled, but were ignored. When travelling abroad, some time and a lot of money can be saved by mail ordering items purchased online. Some items, such as cables and parts, can only be ordered online, and some do not allow in-store pick-up. Since the promise had been made (I have an e-mail message to prove that), I thought things would eventually work out, and did not bother to pay the resort fee myself, figuring that expense should be incurred by the owner.
The resort itself is simple and plain. The gym is OK, but not "state of the art" by a long shot, as stated in the house listing. Our major qualm, though, is the fact that no waste recycling is done. You have to throw all garbage into the same bins (no curbside collection). At this day and age, such a behavior is unacceptable. We even researched online, to see if the garbage collection service would later separate organics and recyclables, but that does not seem to be done. Bad attitude to save a few bucks (additional fees would be charged by the collection service to pick up two kinds of garbage).
Oakwater Resort is a superbly located vacation rental community, just two miles from the entrance to Walt Disney World and close to many other fine shops and restaurants.
Universal Studios is less than 20 minutes away, Sea World 15 minutes, Orlando International Airport 25 minutes and Clearwater on the Gulf Coast just a 90 minute drive away.
Whether you are here to relax, play golf, take in the sights or just have fun, Oakwater is the perfect place for your family vacation, and here's why.
All Oakwater homes are nicely furnished, the resort offers great facilities, and being a gated community, is a safe place for your family to stay.
The Oakwater clubhouse features a concierge desk where guests and owners can request and purchase things like attraction tickets and massage therapy, or a shuttle service to the theme parks.
There is also a state-of-the-art fitness center, a wonderful community pool and spa, and a games room equipped with arcade machines, a pool table, air hockey and foosball.
The clubhouse and pool areas also enjoys free wireless internet access, and there is a 50 inch plasma TV so that you can enjoy your favorite sports or movies. The TV also features PC connectivity, which is ideal for business meetings, presentations and private functions.
Each month there is also a movie night for the children, showing recently released movies on the large 120' projector screen in the clubhouse. Supervised by adults, this is one way that the community helps in giving parents the opportunity to get away for a couple of hours and go to dinner, a move, or just relax.
Outside the clubhouse area, you will also find the Oakwater lake which features a 3/4 mile walking trail, and conservation area. Fishing is also now permitted, a unique feature at any resort in the Disney area.
Children are not forgotten here too, as they can enjoy a private playground, and a dancing fountain. There is also a tennis court, basketball area and a separate beach volleyball court.
For avid golfers, Mystic Dunes golf course is less than a minute away by car and the Legends course at Orange Lake is only about 6 minutes away.
Oakwater resort is making every effort to be a tranquil, safe and memorable vacation rental community for all guests, and we look forward to welcoming you to our homes.
