Disney Family Retreat
We rented Camilla Villa for a week-long combination Disney vacation and Family retreat numbering six adults and four teens. We have been renting houses for family vacations for more than fifteen years and this is the first time we had one that excelled to the point that I felt compelled to write a review.
We found the location to be just perfect. The ten to fifteen minute commute to the Disney parks was quick with less traffic than expected (even in June). And Kennedy Space Center was little more than an hour away as well. There are quite a number of good restaurants within 2 miles of the house which helped minimize travel. The gated community is very attractive and extremely quiet. The written directions to the house were clear and correct and obtaining the entry keys in a realtor’s combination lock-box was very convenient. All communications with the owners was very speedy and helpful, both before and after the rental.
The house was one of the cleanest we have ever rented (we’re really weird about that). There was a sheet to fill out upon check-in to list anything that we found broken or not working when we arrived. We took it as a challenge to do a very thorough inspection (had to find something) and found only 2 or 3 very minor things which really weren't worth mentioning and didn't need to be fixed any way.
Layout of the house worked perfectly for our needs. The three adult couples had rooms in opposite corners of the first floor and the kids had rooms on the second floor. There are two dining tables (which worked out fine), a formal living room (which we didn't use) and a less formal family area with three large sofas and TV. The garage area has a pool table & other play equipment but didn't get much of a workout because the pool was a much bigger hit. It was by far the best one in any house we have rented. And there was plenty of pool play equipment. The kitchen is spacious and very well outfitted with plenty of dishes and cookware. We made some rather elaborate breakfasts!
We felt secure knowing that the owners live nearby in the development and were a quick phone call away to answer our one question for the week. We had a great time and highly recommend this rental unit, especially to large families.
Another wonderful vacation
This home is absolutely beautiful. The pictures are very accurate and depict exactly what the home looks like. We had not stayed in this particular home before, but hope to stay here again in the future. It worked out perfectly so that everyone had their own space, but we could get together for meals, etc. The property was very clean and very well maintained. The owners are absolutely a joy - they are always available to answer questions and checked with us to be sure that everything was satisfactory. I would recommend this property to anyone who would like a spacious home for a wonderful vacation. It is hard to leave this home to go to any of the parks. Everyone wants to stay and enjoy the amenities at this home. Pool lwas absolutely wonderful. This owner has other homes for rent and they are just as well maintained and comfortable as this one.
I would hate to rent a home to me. I am the pickiest person I know. But this house gave me absolutely nothing to criticize. As appealing as the photos are, I don't think they do it justice. It was even nicer than I had imagined. It was beautifully furnished and very well equipped, it was clean, impeccably maintained, had a wonderful floor plan that afforded everyone privacy, was in a great location and the owners were lovely people. What more could a picky person want.
We stayed at this house for our trip to Disney. We have been renting through VRBO for many years and this was one of our best experiences. The pictures shown on the VRBO site and on the owner's website are very accurate...which is not always the case with some homes. Everything was very clean, in good working order and very well equipped.
We had a slight problem with the pool pump one afternoon. This did not stop us from being able to swim. The good thing about this was that the owners personally came over that afternoon and told us exactly what they were doing to fix it. By the time we returned from Disney the next afternoon, it was fixed. This is the kind of customer service that you do not find everywhere.
Unlike some of my other rentals, the deposit showed up in our mailbox in less than one week. I would rent this house again in a heartbeat.
Best Disney Vacation Spot
Beautiful villa, exceptionally decorated and very clean. The floorplan of the home provides space and privacy. We were a group of 7 adults, each couple had their own bedroom, tv and bath....plenty of elbow room. The patio is beautiful with lots of deck furniture and of course the pool - and very private too, with fences and trees blocking the view from neighbors. After a day of hectic sightseeing, it was nice to return to this quiet retreat. The owners were the greatest, friendly and helpful. Hated to leave and can't wait to come back again!
MY FAMILY AND I HAD SUCH A WONDERFUL TIME THE POOL WAS A BIG SUCESS
THE HOUSE WAS VERY CLEAN AND BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED VERY PRIVATE YET CLOSE TO ALL ATTRACTIONS AND RESTURANTS . WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME WITH ALL THE GRAND KIDS IN THE POOL. EACH HAD THEIR OWN ROOM AND TV. EVERYONE DID THEIR OWN THING AND THERE WAS PLENTY TO DO. WE FILLED THE HOUSE BUT THERE WAS PLENTY OF ROOM KIDS PLAYED. WE VISITED WITH FAMILY IT WAS REALLY A GREAT VACATION. THANK YOU SO MUCH HOPE TO DO IT AGAIN REAL SOON
