Great villa near Disney! Clean and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of 4. It was spacious and clean. It had everything we needed for our stay (plenty of towels, coffee maker, dish washer tabs, laundry soap, hair dryer, etc) The beds were so comfortable. We used this is our home base for a Disney vacation. It was within 15 minutes of the parks, so very easy to go to and from. There is a grocery store quite close as well as several restaurants. Disney Springs is also very close, though we did not go there. The staff was very professional and helpful. The condo itself was very quiet. We had a great stay, I highly recommend this place. Christian was quick to respond and so easy to deal with.

Lots of space, very clean

  • 5 of 5

The only issue we had was them pressuring us to do a time share presentation. That was not mentioned in the booking details. We did not go but front desk even called our room to ask why we were not going. Just be aware they will ask you to go. Also, it can get a little noisy in the evening around the pool. We came with our three kids and it was perfect for us!! Spacious, we could cook our own meals, do laundry, rent movies, great balcony. Would totally recommend

Location was great to airport and activities. However, the master bedroom bed was not comfortable along with the living room chairs. Their was some mildew in the bathroom. Lacked a heavy blanket on the bed as well.
