About Mary Howell

My husband, Dan, and I live on the Gulf Coast of Florida....born and raised Floridians! I am now a full time Mom after working in Investment Management for 16 years, and my husband is an Insurance Advisor in Tampa. We have 2 beautiful children. Peyton, 8 and Chelsea, 7.

Mary Howell purchased this condo in 2015

Why Mary Howell chose Kissimmee

We love the Florida beaches but take frequent trips to Orlando with our kids. Rather than pay for inflated hotel prices that don't accommodate our family properly (we need a full kitchen! ) we decided to buy a vacation property to use and rent out. We take pride in our "2nd home", and did plenty of research on the resort, how well it's maintained, our building and proximity to Disney and the Theme Parks we love.

What makes this condo unique

One thing I find disturbing is how vacation rental pictures can be deceiving. Either the resort is run down and ill maintained, or the unit has not been updated, cared for or deep cleaned in years. This is our ONLY property that we use on a frequent basis, and I am extremely picky about décor, cleanliness and maintenance. The resort is truly a gem and fantastic value among the run down resorts you will find in the area, and our unit is our baby. We have given it lots of love and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Very nice and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! We didn’t spend much time here because we were at Magic Kingdom and visiting other areas, but it was very nice and clean! It was spacious enough for our family of four. The beds were also comfortable. It’s a gated community and we felt very safe. This place is close to everything! I would definitely rent again.

Great location but needs a deep clean.

  • 2 of 5

This is my first experience using a VRBO but we have stayed at condo rentals many times. 15 minutes to Magic Kingdom, 25 to Universal and 45 to Legoland, which is where we spent each of our days. So it was a great location. Nice pool, arcade, grounds. Wal-Mart and delicious pizza place both within a 5 minute drive. This unit needs some deep cleaning though and some air conditioner maintenance. A/c was broken on arrival. It was a miracle it got fixed on a Sunday night within 2 hours of calling. I am not confident the unit was cleaned much before we checked in. Bathroom rugs, sheets, unknown hair on floor, dust and dirt on kitchen counter and table, among other things. Very dirty tile grout. We have young kids so I look at these things. I might try VRBO again but not this unit. I recommend a deep clean and a thorough review of all appliances. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Wow I'm completely shocked to hear this! Cleanliness is at the top of my list of requirements and we've always had fantastic reviews with regard to that. I'm curious about what the issue was with the appliances since they are all new, but of course I will have each concern researched and addressed. The AC has had a major overhaul as well and has been maintained so we will have to look into that also. Glad you enjoyed the property anyway and best of luck vacationing in the future!

Relaxing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed a little over a week and had a great time. The condo has been updated, was well maintained, and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. You will need to bring pool towels and wash rags. When we arrived, the master bedroom TV was not working properly, so we emailed the owner and property manager and they had someone out within an hour or so to fix it. Two of our friends came and stayed over a long weekend and they were impressed with the condo and were very comfortable in the second bedroom. They had more than enough room in the large, second bathroom. We spent most of our time swimming and relaxing at the clubhouse pool. The clubhouse food is excellent. The condo is near restaurants, shopping, and the Disney parks. Mary was great to work with. We highly recommended this condo!

two thumbs up!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The location is close to all of the Disney parks. There are many restaurants and shopping locations nearby. The community pool at the condo resort was clean, good sized, with a fun water slide. We also enjoyed the castle themed playground. The resort also offered a game room, ping pong and pool tables, a snack shop, and business center we used for printing our airline boarding passes. We would recommend staying here!

Great Stay at a Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

This property was just what we were looking for for our visit to Disney World. It's located in a great community within 10 minutes of the theme parks. The condo has all you need. It's perfect for a small family with young kids. Thank you for sharing your place with us.

Perfect Home Away and Alternative to Themeparks

  • 5 of 5

I will start out by saying that I am a Disney fanatic. I will forever compare every hotel/condo to Disney and their excellent reputation and standards of hospitality and cleanliness. After staying at Howell's Nest, I can say without hesitation that this is an ideal condo for folks looking for something that is not in the theme parks. We are so happy we were able to rent it! The condo itself is updated, extremely clean, and welcoming. It was perfect for our family of 4. Our children enjoyed their own bedroom (the books and gaming system are a nice bonus, which they really liked). The bed in the master bedroom is so comfortable. My husband commented that the condo itself is actually bigger than the pictures might lead you to believe. We really enjoyed the screened in porch as well (something none of the Disney resorts offer). It was great to put the kids to bed and be able to enjoy the Florida weather, without needing to worry about bugs/critters because of the screened in porch. We were able to cook meals a couple of nights, making use of the well appointed kitchen, and being able to wash laundry is so convenient. As for the resort itself, the pool is fantastic - the water was so warm. Parking and getting in and out of the resort was easy. There are many stores and restaurants nearby. There will be a brand new Walmart literally within a few blocks of the main entrance to the resort soon as well. I highly recommend this condo. Mary is super easy to work with, and always responds quickly to questions.

Disney's Magic Kingdom is the main attraction and closest theme park - fun for adults and kids. (Be sure to take advantage of Fast Pass, and get there BEFORE the park opens to see the celebration on your way into the park! Kids will love it. Also, it's easier to rent a stroller there than bring your own - they are very easy to handle and perfect for little ones.)

My husband and I love to hit Epcot for the Food and Wine Festival, but kids love the park as well. We grew up on Florida's gulf coast, and one of our favorite things to do is run over to CitiWalk and Disney Springs, again enjoyable for kids and parents! Emerill's in Citiwalk is one of our favorite restraunts, and the kids can't wait to play in the bone yard at Disney Springs' T-Rex Restaurant. Hollywood Studios is fantastic and we look forward to the new Star Wars attractions. So much to do! Give yourselves plenty of time to explore and leave some time to play golf!
