Neil Barlow purchased this House in 2015
Why Neil Barlow chose Watersong
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION on an exclusive gated resort. 15 minutes from Disney and just 5 minutes from the Interstate 4 leading to Universal and Sea World and both the Atlantic and Gulf coasts.
What makes this House unique
All bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
The house was large and easily accommodated our party of 11! We were able to get together when we wanted but also have privacy when we wanted.
The pool was great. Our smallest traveler’s enjoyed it immensely.
I will say though that the beds are VERY firm. If you do not like a firm bed plan on getting a topper for the bed!!
All in all, we had a lovely time!!
We enjoyed our stay. We were able to spread out, which is always nice. We really recommend this home.
Magdalena thanks so much for recommending us to other guests. Thanks too for choosing us and I do hope you will come and stay with us again.

Exactly as described. Clean, well presented and well maintained. Ample facilities. Good pool (clean) area, loungers etc. Location wise - 1/2 hr drive to Int. Drive. 1hr to Cocoa Beach, 1 hr to Busch gardens. Easy booking experience and good communication from the owners.
The house was nice
The house was nice and the owner was quick to respond with questions. However, it was not the cleanest. I had to change the bed sheets and comforter the very first night because the cleaners did not take the time to do so. The tile in the shower weren’t the best either. I did not particularly care for the location of the home as well. Those are the reasons it isn’t a full 5 stars.
Have to say I am disappointed with a 3 star review. I have spoken to the management company and they say that all the beds were changed and clean just the same as the hundreds of times they have done it before. Also a bit confused about the location comment as that contradicts what everyone else says that it is a beautiful and peaceful location. But I guess you just can't please everyone all the time.
Well equipped house.
Easy communication from home owner with simple access instructions. Bedrooms all well equipped and suitable for our group although a little too warm, ceiling fans would be a great addition.
Kitchen well equipped with everything we needed though we didn’t eat in very often with so many great restaurants nearby.
We had asked for pool heating but the pool was still very cold for the first week. A quick call to the management company and the issue was resolved the next day. From then on everyone enjoyed the pool after long days at the parks.
TV had a good choice of channels and the WiFi worked perfectly.
Good selection of games in game room.
Watersong is a lovely peaceful area. We enjoyed our stay. All transactions very simple & straight forward.
Lindsay many thanks for your comprehensive review and so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay.
Plenty of Space & Comforts of Home
We really enjoyed our stay! The pool was perfect! Definitely worth purchasing the heat for the pool since the weather dropped towards the end of our vacation. A few things that were a bit disappointing was the leather couch (sectional) cracked leather so there was a brown cover on it, a few missing toilet brushes in the bathrooms, not enough kitchen linens, should have a bottle of dish soap for starters and no pool toys for the kids...…..but on the whole a great experience! Would love to come back and stay! Highly recommend this home to any guests.
Silvana thanks for your 5 star review and thanks for choosing to stay with us. Re the sectional unfortunately there is a dispute with the supplier as it is only a few years old and shouldn’t crack like it has. I’ll check on the toilet brushes and kitchen linens as they should be there, but pool toys is a definite “no no” due to health and safety which of course we are very keen on.
Hope to see you again soon.
