Wonderful Vacation Home
"We have never rented a home before even though we live in Florida and frequently visit the Orlando area. However, my husband and I agreed we will never rent a hotel again. Michelle's prompt responses, spotless home and foresight to provide everything a family could need was so appreciated! The game room in the garage is air conditioned! The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking supplies which made it easy to make breakfast or late night meals for the family. The home is located a few minutes from Disney in a gated community. The office staff was friendly and helpful. We visited Legoland, Disney, and the Kennedy Space Center during our stay and this home was a perfect central location."

"My family of 6 adults stayed here for a 10 day visit to WDW and Universal. The location of the house is great. One morning, we had FastPasses that expired at 9:30. We were slow getting moving and didn't leave the house till 8:30. Even with the drive, the parking, the tram ride, going through bag check and the ticket area, we were still on Tower of Terror by 9 AM. The house was a $20 Uber ride from Universal's CityWalk. Within four miles, there is a Super Target, two grocery stores, a liquor store and many chain restaurants. The house was spotless and well-equipped. The beds were comfortable. Our group liked the couches in the family room. The game room was warm - probably not air-conditioned? If I had one thing to do over, I would have paid for the spa heat. The pool was a comfortable temperature. We would definitely stay here again and I would recommend the house."

"We arrived back in the UK on Monday and we were very sad. We had just had 2 magical weeks in Florida and stayed in the most amazing villa we could of ever asked for.
Minnie’s Maingate Manor was fantastic.
The attention to detail and the care/love that has been put into making this villa what it is was clear to see.
Our ages ranged from 10 years to 49 years and all of us loved it.
Every room was themed which made it so exciting as well as been so individual.
The pool/pool area was such a great size and even when all of us were in the pool together it did not feel cramped.
We spent many a evening and any spare moment we could find at home (your villa) and making the most of everything it offered.
Everything we needed was right there. The location was perfect too. So close to everything that we didn’t lose anytime having to travel miles.
Hopefully one day we will return to Florida as we all love it there and when we do you we will be returning to stay at this villa."

"This was a perfect choice for us. Three adult kids, two spouses, my partner and I. The home was perfect for having breakfast together before heading to the Magic Kingdom and enough privacy to allow everyone their own space when we returned. Minutes away from Disney and close enough to Universal to not be a real hassle. Beds were comfortable and the home was clean when we arrived. Rob and Louise answered my emails quickly and were always polite and easy to work with. This was the first trip I organized for us and the 'kids' gave it a thumbs up!! And since they had been to Disney many times, I count this as a success!!"
