We stayed in the community of Glenbrook, within 20 minutes to Disney. The home was exactly as advertised, with ease of getting into it. Just put in the code and you are in! The home was clean and for a fee, they put up a Christmas for our family as we visited over Christmas. The garage was stocked with a pool table and Air hockey and pool toys. The pool/Spa area is fully screened in so quite relaxing and offers some privacy. We were shocked how much hotter it was outside the screened area. Remember this is in a subdivision so houses all around but this property has a large hedge at rear. Within the community, they have a club house with a larger pool, tennis court, volley ball court, table tennis, work-out gym and a common room. We went there a few times and no one was around. I called the Property Mgr a few times in regards to the pool/Spa water level. Was told that was normal, however every time we went into the Spa/Hot Tub, the level would go below the jets causing a lot of spray. They finally came and put some more water in the pool the second last day of our 10 day stay. Overall, very happy with the home and what it offered. The negative of our trip, and this isn't about the house, is that Orlando is WAY TOO BUSY the last two weeks. The parks are crazy busy, the highways are crazy congested, the grocery store (Walmart) was packed ALL the time, the lines ups are huge!!! We wish we just stayed at the house and relaxed around the pool. I would have given a 5-star if not for the pool issue. Thanks Orlando Villa's for taking our requests and working with the homeowner in regards to the Christmas tree...my 7 yr old was thrilled to see it!!
The physical location (about 20-25 minutes from Universal) was not our first choice, but in the end, it was really our only choice.
The house, the land, the lake made for the perfect combination of peace and quiet that we ultimately sought out. After a long day at the parks, returning to the house was something we looked forward to... take a dip, lounge in the wonderfully manicured backyard, grill on the back porch. RInse, wash, repeat... we found ourselves in this pattern almost everyday.
Despite the owners being in the UK, they were extremely attentive when a minor glitch popped up. Rest assured they have locals taking great care to ensure that all our needs were met and in a timely fashion.
If your kids need to see Mickey every waking moment of every day, then by all means stay on site at Disney, but if you would also like to enjoy YOUR vacation, this is not a treat to miss out on.
