We are a family of 6, with two older boys and two younger girls, who are our inspiration for creating this villa. We live in Utah, and find the attractions and beaches of Central Florida to be the most enjoyable vacation destinations for our family, young to old, (even grandma and grandpa enjoy themselves!), because all the children and adults are equally entertained.
JanaLynn Young purchased this villa in 2012
1. You can't get a villa any closer to Disney. So nice to come home mid-day and refresh the family for a night of fireworks and more attractions!
2. We love the vaulting, tall ceilings, and openness between kitchen, great family room and dining areas, allowing large groups to be together!
3. So many master bedrooms have their own private bathrooms. This is a must for adults!
4. The pool is large with a spa, and gets great sun year round. Some villa pools are pitifully small or shaded. And, the pool has direct bathroom access! Crazy, but there are actually very few villas that have this feature, which we find an essential for children (adults love it, too).
5. These themed rooms are the best of any we have ever seen, and so agree our guests. With toys and dress-ups, we've outdone even the Disney Resorts...come see for yourself!
If you've stayed in other large villas, you'll surely find this to be the best floor plan of any property in Orlando!
In keeping with the age-less appeal of Disney and the ocean, we have created 'Happily Ever After' luxury playhouses to likewise fit the needs of children and adults alike. In addition to the fun of a private spa and pool, the villa is outfitted with all the comforts of home grown-ups are used to--ensuite bathrooms, a well-stocked kitchen with lot of small appliances and cookware, new, clean furnishings and linens; yet 'Happily Ever After' also has more kids' toys, dress-ups, movies and games than children can imagine! A stay at 'Happily Ever After' is a vacation in itself, for everyone!
We have stayed in multiple vacation homes near Disney at all price ranges and sizes. This is hands down best one. Not only does it accomodate a large group well, but each room is extraordinarily decorated, especially the kids rooms. The kind bedrooms boast some of the most comfortable beds and everything is well stocked. The kitchen has everything you need to never have to eat out while you are there. The owner was very communicative throughout the whole process. The game room, PlayStation and 3d movie projector were kids during this cold weekend. Beyond all this were the small attention to detail items, like the abundance of costumes and dress up clothes for star wars princesses, the toys to play with, the wide selection of video games and movies and the extras like strollers for the theme parks. The kids were sincerely torn between wanting to stay at the house or visit Disney, it was that good.
We spent a week at this wonderful property between Christmas and New Year's. The house even better than the pictures show. The themes and decorations are amazing and lots of fun. This is the most well equipped house we have ever rented and it was the perfect spot for our large family get together. We really enjoyed the heated pool, the 3D theater, and the many costumes and themed rooms. It's like staying in your own little theme park. The owners were very nice and responsive. We would definitely like to rent this property again.
Let me start by saying this home was everything and more than we expected. We planned to enjoy Christmas as a family after experiencing a tragic lost a couple months earlier. We needed family bonding to aid in the healing process and this home was most definitely it. The ambience was on point from the heated pool to the movie/game room. Each and every room in the entire house provided a sense of peace, laughter and adventure for the kids as well as the adults. We enjoyed a day at Disney which was only minutes away. In fact we were even more excited to head home to enjoy the costumes and charactor themes. We watched movies, played video games, swam, sang and danced! What a wonderful and glorious time we had. Thanks so much for creating such an atmosphere! Words can’t express the gratitude we have from my family to the owners of this vacation rental. Again I say with a big smile Thank You!
AWESOME! Happily Ever After has something for everyone. Our 5 year old girl, who has trouble sleeping in her own bed at home, slept in the Princess Room every night. The evening before our departure she had to dress up in each princess gown one last time. Our 5 and 9 year old boys loved the Pirate Room. And the Harry Potter room was perfect for the 12 and 14 year olds. Our 3 year old could not make up his mind so he used them all. The pool and spa were enjoyed by all. Safety concerns were quickly alleviated when we saw the pool fence, chirping sound whenever someone walked in or out of a door, and the ability to "lockdown" the house every night. All of the children enjoyed the Theater Room. We were just a few minutes from all things Disney. Universal Studios was also an easy trip. JanaLynn insured we had all that we needed. Happily Ever After offered all essentials for daily living. JanaLynn was easy to reach and very accommodating. Our family had a great vacation, making many happy memories. We would definitely do this again.
This house is in a great location and that is only the beginning. The rooms are spacious with amazing themes. It pulls you right into a world of magic. The owner is a very easy to contact and responds quickly to EVERYTHING. We stayed in this house for the second time and it will be our #1 choice for our next visit. Thank you for helping us make this trip everything we hoped it would be.
We only had a short stay before we left on a cruise, but this house was AMAZING! We had 17 people and we all fit very comfortably. We went to Universal Studios, which is about 20 min away, but it was worth the distance. In fact, my younger kids were begging to leave Universal and come back early to the house to play there! Toys and costumes galore, great pool, amazing decor and so FUN! Owners were super helpful too. We'd stay here in a heartbeat again!
