About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Orlando - Kissimmee - Disney World - Florida. This beautiful, privately-owned home is located very near Disney's Animal Kingdom Park!

To our previous guest and future guest. We want everyone to know that we are making significant updates and improvements to the home as of May, 2017 and be ready for our guest by months end. We are changing the homes decor and updating with a new kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances and new "quiet" dishwasher and side by side refrigerator. We are also installing new kitchen hardware, plumbing fixtures, sinks, cabinet hardware and granite counter tops and lighting in the home. We are repainting the interior of the home and have added in the past year new HD Televisions and new furniture. We have changed and upgraded our maintenance system and we are supplying more of the basic items to enjoy your stay. We have seen the issues of recent customers, we apologize that we couldn't get this done sooner, however, we were booked so far in advance - but now we are have scheduled the repairs and updates and are very excited for our guest to continue to enjoy the home you have come to love and enjoy with many generations of guest from the past. We will be posting new photos as soon as the changes are completed!

The luxurious master suite is as romantic as it gets. The king size bed has the thickest, plushest pillow top mattress you can find. Relax in this comfortable bed and watch the wall-recessed TV.

Want to really relax? Then let the 12 soothing jets of the two person double sized Jacuzzi reinvigorate you and that special person in your life. The huge 6' by 6' two person, twin headed shower lets water strike your entire body. Get ready for that special evening with his and her vanities.

Our pool is 36 feet long, 50% larger than a standard pool. The covered lanai has a reclining lounge chair as well as rocker. You will enjoy eating 'al Fresco' while enjoying the cool breeze generated from the fan above the generous dining table. The pool can be heated and it is totally protected from outside pests with its huge screen enclosure.

The home has 16-foot vaulted ceilings with huge archways. Its decorator-painted scheme and wallpaper provide a very modern/contemporary flair. The separate living room has a built in desk with internet hookup available as well. Your family room looks onto the pool area and allows you to watch the 55 inch flat screen HD TV at the same time you watch and hear the falling water.

Your home has a formal dining room, large kitchen with breakfast area, laundry room, a second bedroom (queen size bed) with the same plush mattresses as in the king master suite, and a bedroom with two twin beds themed in the tradition of Disney.

This home is a vacation destination unto itself. It is fully-equipped with everything you would need to make this your perfect vacation. Isn't it time you felt the magic and had a 5 Star Vacation? It's time to be a kid again and watch the nightly fireworks over Cinderella's Castle!

Our family offers 4 great properties, if you might want to consider listing #7170 - our 4 bedroom/3 bath executive lake view home; listing #7171 our 6 bedroom/3.5 bath resort home which was recently totally updated as well and our listing #9392 our 4 large 4 bedroom home located in Sun Lake Resort gated community. All of our homes are very close to Disney!

About Jhony Alvarez

I have become a Florida resident and Real Estate broker to assist others with the opportunity to own a place in the Florida Sun. Our family and extended family now offer our guest many unique homes and condos, all very near Disney and we treat them like what they are - our family homes. We live near the homes and take care of the homes. One of our family is nearby to answer your questions and help you with a problem should something occur that you need our help. We keep 're-investing into our properties to assure your family of a great experience! All homes are not alike. Pictures are worth a thousand words - however, if the pictures are of when a home was built new - then they are worthless! Our homes are very modern and super located. Let's face it - the better locations were not built yesterday - but our homes look like they were built yesterday. This is the commitment we make to our guests and our family's future depends on our guest. If you want a cheap home - we are not it - however, if you want a great value - you've found it.

Jhony Alvarez purchased this house in 1996

Great spot for our Disney vacation

  • 4 of 5

The location was ideal and the house was just as it was depicted on the website. It was an affordable stay and met our expectations. Pet friendly for us was a must! This home met all of our vacation needs

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review of our home. We just spent a lot of time and money upgrading the home with granite counter tops, new solid wood cabinets, all new lighting fixtures thru out the home as well as new bathroom fixtures including a frameless shower for the huge double shower in the master bath. We did this because this home is a great property and was built originally for us as our principal residence. It has a great open floor plan and a very large pool as well. We appreciate your review and hope others will find it interesting and see this home IS as advertised. We look forward to having you as a guest again! Mickey, Jhony and the Team!

Look no further, excellent choice!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience started before we arrived. While a small discrepancy came up, Jhony very kindly worked with us, and helped resolve. We appreciated this and knew it would set the tone for our stay. We had the pleasure of meeting Jhony, as we arrived slightly earlier than anticipated (14 hour drive down!), and he was kinda enough to welcome us, and give us some tips before parting ways.

I am shocked by any of the negative comments left in previous reviews, as they simply do NOT align with how our experience was. The pool was perfect for our family, 4 adults and 1 child. The accommodations were comfortable and we felt like we were at home. We had a generous and more than ample supply of necessities provided. ( We brought our own towels due to prior reviews and were shocked that anyone would think there was not enough!) I thought it was exceedingly kind for dish soap, laundry pods, trash bags, extra sheets, paper-towel, AND excess toilet paper to be left for our use! The house is WELL equipped with, dishes, silverware, pots, cooking utensils, blender, coffee pot, toaster and nicely appointed appliances, like the refrigerator.

The space is more than enough, and the master bathroom very large and great for a couple who may not have nicer amenities at home to enjoy! There were 2 tables to dine at, an outside table and chairs, and the home has obviously been well cared for.

The location was just right for us. Being outside of the heart of Orlando made our experience so much more enjoyable, as staying directly in Orlando is a pain and hassle and traffic is atrocious. We went to Sea World and Discovery Cove and our drive time was very minimal.

We would absolutely stay here again should the occasion arise - if you are looking for a party house, do everyone a favor and do not come here to tear the place up for those who want a nice well kept place to enjoy with their families.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review of our home Shawn. I appreciate your comments - we feel like you do and try to make everyone's visit to "Minnie's Mansion" a special one! We look forward to having you as our guest again! I might add Shawn was here in the peak summer season - so his comments about traffic and location should help people trying to decide on a location as well. Thanks Again! Mickey, Jhony and the Team

Nice home!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a great time in the Minnie Mansion. Couldn't keep the kids out the pool. We will be back in November and will probably stay at this property.

property was nice but didn't feel like home. only a shell of a home.

  • 2 of 5

Could have been cleaner. Absolutely no pantry staples. If you plan on cooking bring a kitchen! We only stayed two nights so no big deal. I would not stay here a week.

Owner's Response: This review occurred because we filed a complaint against the guest directly with VRBO. That was done a few days before the guest posted this review. The guest stayed for two days! WE made an exception and allowed them to rent the home - we have a three day minimum rental - which means they were on property for approximately 36 hours. I told Jhony before these people came that it would be a problem rental - we have found from experience - that one and two night stays end up costing us money as the home is abused and or damaged. I suspect this became a party home for the weekend. I want our guest to understand that we have made this home a very nice home and we were very upset by the way these people left it. I have had thousands of rentals in our homes - I can count on one hand the rentals with these kinds of problems from the past. This home's kitchen and much of the home was totally renovated in May before their arrival. We had/have everything in the home we have listed on the site as we provide - and more! This guest left the home with food in almost every room! We suspect they might have brought other people to the home as it was in such a mess! Either that or they live like pigs - which could be the case I guess. As an owner - after spending over $20,000 in remodeling to update this home and making it the best just this spring - it is frustrating to say the least. This home has complete kitchen wares for six people - it's sleeping capacity. We stock two complete sets of towels, hand towels and wash clothes for each guest for the home - that is 12 full sets! Two full sets of sheets for each bed as well. We provided enough dishwashing and laundry supplies to do 5 loads of cleanings for each appliance for our guest. We guarantee the quality of the home - we are available by phone all day every day for issues - and nights for emergencies! We fix issues as quickly as possible if something occurs. We don't furnish a pantry full of condiments, etc.. We say that in our ad - we are self catered - we are not a restaurant. If a guest has a problem - we encourage and want to be notified. Why didn't they call if they had a problem? I think any reasonable person knows the answer to this question - the guest abused the home and our policies! Again we guarantee our homes - when a guest checks in, if the home doesn't match what we say it has- we will refund our guest! How much fairer can we be - our goal is to make your trip great!

Awesome Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at your house. It was clean, comfortable and very nice. It had everything that we needed and even washing machine detergent was provided which is not done anywhere else. The pool was great and larger than most. The neighborhood subdivision where the house is located was a nice area with everything located on the main highway. I would definitely recommend family and friends to stay here.

Charming vacation home!!

  • 5 of 5

I don't usually write reviews after a vacation but I had a great conversation with the owner and I was telling him how happy I was with "Minnie's Mansion" and he asked that if I had the time, would I mind expressing my thoughts by writing a review, I asked him why and he told me honestly that the previous guest had written a review that listed several issues that were not in sync with what I told the owner during our discussion. I told him I'd be happy to write a review. I also felt this would be information I would want to read when I do my research for a vacation. So, we arrived at 4pm on April 12 (please note that the review mentioned by the owner was by the guest who left early the day we arrived, so I think that my review is suitable to the time frame) and even though the home had been rented until early that morning, we found the home to be neat, clean and in perfect condition. The house has is beautifully decorated with nice furniture and beds. The TV's were great and the pool was very large (which all three of our kids loved) and heated (which we requested because we went swimming after the parks, sometime as late as 10pm and each night the pool was wonderfully warm). There were plenty of clean (and what looked like brand new) linens and towels. I took it upon myself to read the pervious guest's review to see what the owner was talking about and I noticed that the previous guest complained about the pool temp....I don't know why, it was definitely not a problem for us. The previous reviewer also complained about the kitchen and again, I disagree with the assessment. While the kitchen appliances were older, they all worked and were clean and that was what was most important to us. There were also plenty of cleaning supplies and kitchenware for our daily use (so many little things that I didn't think of myself to bring or pick up so that was a big relief). In short, like I told the owner, we will definitely be back and look forward to the updates to the interior that the owner mentioned during our conversation. And one last, but very important note, we found the price to be very good (plenty of bang for the buck) !!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for you kind review Christine. I appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us and our future guest. Our goal is to make every visit a special one and we do try to make it as nice as possible. I am glad you found the home as we had told you. By the way we are finishing the updates on the home. Most were finished in May and we hope to get new photos up soon. Unfortunately or fortunately I guess - we have had guest in the home who arrived the day most of the updating was finished. So, we hope to have the new photos up when we can arrange to have them taken. We know you will like the changes - the three guest who have seen the "new" Minnie's Mansion have loved the makeover. We look forward to having you as a guest again soon! MIckey, Jhony and the team!
