Our 4 bedroom, 3 full bath 'home away from home' is in the sought-after Solana Resort, which is a private, guard gated community only 15 minutes from Disney World. This 1600 sq ft open floor plan house has been designed to be comfortable, multi-functional and a colorful oasis for your Orlando vacation. Each bedroom has its own unique theme. Our Villa's name is reflected in the amazing artwork that adorns the walls of every room, showcasing Walt Disney's incredible vision that led to Disney World.

Front entrance/foyer. Just inside the front door are 2 paisley wingback chairs and game table for a quiet match of chess, checkers, etc. To your right is a hall tree & bench to sit down, take off your shoes and hang your bags or jacket from a day at Disney, other parks or shopping. Lift up the bench and you'll find it full of family board games. The marble topped wine bar sits under the cartoon map of Orlando and unique bird cage light, with assorted wine & beer glasses inside and 12 bottle cabinet to store your wine purchases. On top of the bar are books about the life of Walt Disney for your reading enjoyment.

Living room/dining area. When you are ready to relax at home move into the living space with 2 oversized rattan king chairs and leather sofa with matching cushions and pillows. The coffee table and barrel end table have plenty of room for your coaster and beverage; end lamps offer plenty of light if you want it. Sit down and get ready to enjoy the 50' Vizio 3d Smart TV and Blue-Ray DVD and Bose Solo sound system that will have you believing you are in the movie or show you are experiencing. A multitude of DVDs and books await you in the shabby-chic entertainment console. A sliding door leads to the patio/pool area. A remote controlled bamboo ceiling fan circulates the air conditioning throughout the seating and dining area.

Gaston gazes over the dining area in the print of 'Gaston's Tavern'. The distressed wood dining table seats 6, with leather side chairs and paisley cloth end chairs with a window view to the patio and pool. There is additional seating at the granite covered bar with 2 bar stools.

Kitchen. The kitchen is conveniently located next to the dining area, and is open to the entire great room.

The plentiful cabinets are full of stocked with every detail and convenience you will need.

It has rustic wood bunk beds, designed as a pirate ship with the ship's wheel on one end and the pirate mast at the other. It comes with a night stand and a 5 drawer dresser with a 32' HDTV. Completing the pirate theme are a hanging lantern (that doubles as a night light) and a full wall treasure map.

Mickey Mouse Silhouette Bedroom. You can't help but smile every time you enter this room !! This cheerful, colorful bedroom features 2 twin beds with Mickey Mouse bedding and a matching night stand. The 'Mickey' details abound, from the artful decals over the closet, the inspirational quote from Walt himself, to the custom painted canvas print that reminds you that 'a friend is waiting...'

About Alan or Kathryn

We looked at many houses/villas before we bought. We chose Solana Resort for many reasons. Most of all, we plan on living here full time someday.

*Security

Not all resorts that are gated have a 24/7 guard checking credentials.

*One Level

We loved the open concept floor plan for family & friends.

*Two Car Driveway

We did not want a parking lot like most townhouses have.

*2 En-suites

Perfect for family & friends.

*Pool size

We preferred not having a splash pool.

*Master Bath has a door to the pool deck

This is a handy feature to have, especially with children.

*Security System

Every home in the Solana Resort has one.

*HOA

Unlike buying in a traditional neighbor, an association enforces rules, codes & keeps owners informed with important and useful information quickly.

The Solana Resort keeps up the grounds and is always looking to improve the amenities.

So, with that being said, not all Resorts are the same; especially if you're planning on living there someday.

Alan or Kathryn purchased this villa in 2013

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

We found the house was as described. The themed rooms and hidden surprises were a delight for the whole family. The location was excellent, as it was close to major attractions and shopping. The community was guarded 24 hours and it was quiet. This house is a perfect experience for those looking to explore the magic of the nearby parks. We enjoyed our stay so much that next time we will simply book the house and not bother staying on site at the park. The owners kept a line of communication open during our entire trip and were accessible. Our little princess smiled the entire stay!

All you need and more!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of six was a family and friends trip, and the layout of the villa worked really well for our two week stay. All we needed and more ... ample space, very clean and comfortable (especially the king size bed - memory foam!), and extremely well equipped. Games room (and washer/dryer) in the garage was awesome! We didn't get a chance to sample the Solana resort pool and facilities as we were too busy, but it looked great. The privacy screen on the pool is a nice touch, as the houses are close together. We parked two cars on the driveway, We found the villa location to be ideal for us, and everywhere was within reach without being crowded and in the middle of the chaos areas. We visited Busch Gardens (45 min), all of the Disney and Universal parks, and also made it out to three beaches (Clearwater - 1hr 50, Cocoa Beach - 1hr 35, St. Pete - 1 hr 40). It was easy to get to and from the parks (go early), just busy, so allow extra time to travel home! We also hit up the Florida Mall and International Outlet; neither of these are really close by, but they are easy to get to. We found a couple of little gems for fast food, just down the road, which on a long park day was what we wanted ...Mia Pizza is delicious and there's a couple of fish and chip shops close by. Publix supermarket has everything you need, but a little more expensive than Walmart which is a little further away. Booking the villa was super easy, and the owners are very responsive. We did need to contact the property management company the evening before we left and she was extremely helpful. All in all ... well recommended!

Owner's Response: It is UNFORTUNATE that this reviewer (who is not from (the USA) this country) did not mention that the issue with the TV was DUE TO their mis-handling of the TV remotes. There are 2 remotes. One is for the surround sound bar & the other remote works the TV. It is UNFORTUNATE that there was NO mention that when we were notified we immediately replied to them and then we contacted our management company. It is again UNFORTUNATE that it was not mentioned that our management company immediately ((got out of bed)) and went to the villa & fixed the issues with the remote controls. THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME. Yes, it really did happen again. This time they contacted the management company directly. We did not find out about ALL of their "Issues" until over a week later. But, again it is UNFORTUNATE that it was not mentioned above that our management company immediately went to the villa. But, this time management could not repair the damage done. NOTE: ALL THE OTHER TV'S IN THE VILLA WERE WORKING FINE. PROBABLY BECAUSE THERE WAS ONLY ONE REMOTE CONTROL FOR THOSE TVS. Management had to make an appointment with the cable company. The cable company doesn't work on our schedule.......so, they came out the day after being called and resolved the issue. In brief, between the 36 text messages between our management company & these guest's "Issues" like the clothes dryer "Not Working" because the guest could not figure how to operate it . And the basketball game is electric so it just needed electricity; it had to be plugged back in!! We did everything within our control i.e. Immediate Replies to text messages, finding solutions to issues and rushing to the villa to accommodate these guests; who by the way were visiting from out of the USA.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at a few houses in Solana, but this one was by far our favourite. It was beautifully decorated, very well stocked and the pool is big and private. The kids loved their theme rooms. But their favourite was the pool. And when it got too cool to swim, the game room was a great alternative. My oldest especially loved the basketball game.

Alan and Kathryn were great to deal with. From the start, the communication was easy and the responses quick. We did have a little issue at the house but Alan had someone over within an hour to get it fixed and he kept me informed at all times. Not often do we leave a house and say that we would definitely rent it again, but our experience was so great that if and when we go back, we will rent the same house.
