Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had such a wonderful time here for our Disney trip. The house is amazing. We all enjoyed the hot tub overall. We have had the time of our lives...and the game room was awesome. Not only is Disney awesome but the house made this trip more relaxing and enjoyable! Thank you very much for allowing us to stay in your house!

Beautiful house, close to Disney, Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a terrific time. We've stayed in many vacation rentals and this one is definitely in the top tier! Beautifully furnished, great pool and game room, excellent location and one of the smoothest rental processes that I've ever experienced! Loved it!

Fantastic home-away-from-home!

  • 5 of 5

Patty's Place was the perfect retreat for our recent trip to Orlando. We were 15 people strong: two grandparents, their 4 kids and their spouses, and 5 grandkids. Where to start with what we loved? The grandkids were able to begin and end every day of vacation swimming together in the clean, beautiful, spacious pool. The space in the house was enough so that we could all be together eating in the kitchen/breakfast nook or we could all be doing our own things in our bedrooms, game room, family room, and lanai. These are big things to love about Patty's place, but the little things add up, too. Fore example, there were so many pool towels provided by the owners! They seemed to never end! Plus, the coffee pot and microwave were amazing... a big deal for sleepy parents and picky kiddos!

Another reason we loved Patty's Place so much is that it truly was so convenient to All Things Orlando. Highway 192 has everything you'd need within a couple of miles: restaurants, stores, gift shops... It only took us about 20 minutes to our parking spot at Disney World. Universal was a short half hour drive. Sea World and a ride on an air boat were only 45 minutes each (there was a little traffic... still not bad!).

I would highly recommend this place for anyone wanting to go to Orlando with a large group of people!

Wedding adventure

  • 4 of 5

We leased the home for our family to be able to come together for our daughter's wedding on a holiday weekend. A fundamental lack of emergency supplies right before a hurricane arrived was an issue we had to deal with resulting in a 4 hr trip to Target. A whopping 3 sheets on the paper towel roll was not the homeowners fault nor was the bathrooms with almost vacant tissue rolls. Kellie and her family have a beautiful home and we made sure it stayed that way by hauling in all the patio furniture and cleaning up after the storms blew theu. Several other properties did not have such luck. I would lease again but would encourage additional supplies to be left on the property for obvious reasons.

Party's Place is amazing.

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 14 loved staying at Pattys Place. From the moment we walked in the door we felt that we were at home. There was plenty of room for all of us. The house was well stocked with everything we needed and very clean. Disney was not far away and part of our family visited Universal. Now let me mention the pool and hot tub. It was wonderful. We all loved them both. Thank you so much Kellie and John for the opportunity to stay in your home. We will be back and we have already told our friends to give staying off Disney properties a try. We loved it and our vacation this year. Thank you.
