Imagine the perfect Disney vacation rental. What does it look like?
At a minimum, it’s a home where you can relax. A place where the kids can play (and play and play) safely. A villa that’s completely outfitted with all the comforts of home, plus packed full of additional luxuries. And preferably, somewhere that offers plenty of privacy, and free Wi-Fi that covers the whole house and the pool deck!
It’s a home that has all the space your group needs. It’s very, very close to Disney. (You left the commute back home.) It has a game room! And a heated pool! And while we’re on the topic of wish-lists, let’s just throw this out there: Your perfect home also has a separate kid’s pool for the littlest travelers in your group.
This is usually the time when you begin worrying that your dream home doesn’t actually exist…
But we’re here to tell you, it does. Its name is Villa Luja, and it ticks all your boxes: At 5 bedrooms, it’s large enough for your group. Located in Indian Creek, it’s just 3 miles (5 minutes!) to Disney. And it has your game room, your heated pool and yes, even the perfect children’s pool.
So you can relax. Enjoy your vacation. Let the kids enjoy theirs.
And when you’re ready, you can hop in the car and drive those measly 5 minutes to Disney.
Because yes, you’ve finally found your perfect Disney villa. Welcome!
♠♠♠ SPACIOUS FAMILY LIVING ♠♠♠
Chances are, whether you’re traveling with your immediate family, a group of friends, or extended family, you don’t want to spend your vacation cooped up inside. (Even if the home is outfitted with all the indoor fun you could imagine.)
Luckily, you’re in Florida, where the unwritten rules states, if it’s sunny, go outside!
Luckily, you’re in Florida, where the weather forecast promises sun, year-round.
Villa Luja, which was recently retiled in 2015, offers all the indoor and outdoor space your group could need. Starting outdoors, step out onto the screened lanai (no bugs!) and pool deck. The BBQ (optional) and patio seating play host to delicious meals and lots of laughter. The heated pool is inviting, no matter the time of year. And the dedicated children’s pool? Well, it’s begging your kids to have a great time.
When it’s dark, or your fingers have finally turned to prunes, or you’re just ready to head inside, Villa Luja is fully equipped for indoor fun: The spacious living room is outfitted with squishy sofas, a huge flat-screen TV, and a DVD player. The microwave is primed for popcorn-popping. Curtain’s up for family movie night!
That’s not all, though: If your group is more about competition than relaxation, head into Villa Luja’s sweet game room: electronic darts, air hockey, pool, and foosball (table football) await!
And when everyone’s tired after an exciting day at Disney or a leisurely day at the villa, you’ll all be happy to have your own little slice of privacy and space to spread out.
♠♠♠ SOUTH-WEST FACING, PRIVATE SWIMMING POOL ♠♠♠
Look around Central Florida, and you’ll notice something: Almost every house has a pool, but very few are truly private.
At most vacation rentals, your private pool is not-so-private: the neighbors are so close, you could high-five. It feels strange to know someone could be watching you sunbathe, or practice your cannonball, or bbq your lunch, or reapply your sunblock.
At Villa Luja, you’ll have none of those concerns: Your sparkling, heated pool is private. (Pool heat recommended October through April.) Screened in and fenced by lush greenery, your pool is yours and yours alone. To swim, sunbathe, splash, grill and, yes, reapply your sunblock without worrying about a wardrobe malfunction.
So go on, spread out on that sun lounger. Enjoy your coffee by the pool. Swim laps. Perfect your cannonball. Let the kids play a rousing game of Marco Polo. The pool is yours, and yours alone. Enjoy!
♠♠♠ TODDLER / CHILDREN’S POOL ♠♠♠
When you travel with kids, there’s no such thing as a relaxing afternoon “by” the pool – you’re either in the pool, or you’re not near the pool at all.
Kids love water. They can swim for hours and splash for days. They never get tired of playing mermaids or shark, of throwing balls or diving down for sunken toys.
Parents, on the other hand? Well, we get tired. Our fingers turn to raisins. And sometimes, we just want to take a sunbath.
Happy to deliver! At Villa Luja, you can let the kids play to their heart’s content in a shallow, toddler-friendly children’s pool. It’s the perfect balance: You hang out by water’s edge, lounging beneath the sun, while they splash safely in 18” of water.
As always, we care as much about safety as we do about fun. We keep your little ones safe with a pool fence to protect our youngest guests from taking a swim on their own. There are also pool alarms on the doors that lead to the pool and hot tub.
♠♠♠ FAST, WHOLE-HOME FREE WIFI INTERNET ♠♠♠
Need to stay connected? No problem. Our high-speed free WiFi internet covers the entire home, and even extends out over the pool deck. So go on, upload that poolside selfie.
♠♠♠ THREE (!) MASTER SUITES ♠♠♠
Traveling with family and friends is a blast, until it comes time to pick rooms. Who gets the primo suite? You hope it’s you, but you don’t want to be pushy…
At Villa Luja, you’re in luck – you’re all getting master suites! The villa has three masters and promises privacy for all: The first master offers a king-sized bed, attached master bath, and pool access; the second master has a queen-sized bed, an attached bath, and the third master offers a queen-sized bed and attached bath.
The remaining two bedrooms are perfect for kids, too: Lightly themed, one offers two twin beds, the other has two twin beds and a bunk, and share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom.
All of Villa Luja’s bedrooms have top-quality mattresses, comfortable bedding, and flat-screen televisions.
♠♠♠ FULLY EQUIPPED GAME ROOM ♠♠♠
At Villa Luja, family game night is every night. That’s right – when you’re here, you can hit the arcade, whenever you want (and for free!), in the privacy of your own home-away-from-home.
Write up the roster, chalk up your cue, and practice your aim, because our garage-converted game room is outfitted with electronic darts, a pool tables, foosball (table football), and air hockey. Let the competition begin!
♠♠♠ FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN ♠♠♠
There’s something very home-away-from-homey about waking up in the morning, heading for the kitchen, and waiting for the coffee to brew while you’re standing around in your pajamas. You didn’t have to shower, or put your clothes on, or debate with your family about which breakfast restaurant to hit this morning.
Nope. You just woke up and brewed your coffee. And you probably enjoyed your first cup by the pool. In quiet, private bliss.
The freedom of your own, well equipped kitchen is real vacation freedom: You can order out every meal, or cook up a feast every day. You can pop your own popcorn, or stash the bagged stuff in the pantry. And yes, you can brew your own coffee, or refrigerate your favorite store-bought iced brew. You do you.
With you in mind, we’ve covered the musts – and then some! At Villa Luja, you’ll have all the necessities, from the fridge down to the oven, as well as all the other kitchen accouterments: a toaster and microwave, pots and pans, utensils and gadgets, and plenty of place settings.
Of course, we all have enough seating for your entire group: a formal dining table (seats 6), a breakfast nook (seats 4), a breakfast bar (seats 4), and the al fresco, poolside table (seats 4).
♠♠♠ PRIVATELY OWNED AND LOCALLY MANAGED ♠♠♠
Have you ever lived a Vacation Rental Nightmare? It’s 9 p.m. and the toilet’s overflowing. Or you’re fresh out of clean clothes and the washing machine breaks down mid-cycle. Or perhaps you’re locked out, or you can’t find the wine opener, or you just need a late-night restaurant recommendation.
You call, and you call, and you call. But the property manager doesn’t pick up. Or, she does but she’s based across the country and has no local, emergency contacts to help you tonight. You’ll have to wait until tomorrow; they’ll be there sometime between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Suddenly, your vacation has morphed into something very different than the relaxing escape you had hoped it would be.
We know that the details – the big AND little details – can make or break your vacation. That’s why we’re committed to you, to your experience. We’re local – in just a few minutes, we can be at your front door – and we’re available 24/7, every day of the year, via phone, text or email. What’s more, we have the local professional contacts to handle any emergency, no matter the hour. We’ll get that toilet fixed, tonight.
Oh, and as we mentioned, we’ve been in the Disney area for 15 years, so we’re also good for those restaurant recommendations. Ask us where to find the best cheesy chips.)
♠♠♠ TRUSTWORTHY ♠♠♠
We get it – you don’t know us from the next guy. And simply trusting that we’re trustworthy? You weren’t born yesterday.
But trustworthy, we are – and we’ll do our best to prove it, well before you commit to booking. It starts with our response times (often within minutes, never more than a few hours). We go out of our way to answer all of your questions. And we’re honest about it; we won’t fib or exaggerate. We won’t tell you a home is 10 minutes from Disney, when it’s really 30 minutes in normal traffic.
