Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the condo. It was away from the busyness of Orlando. Very secure and plenty of restaurants in the area to choose from. Havard, the owner of the condo, was great to deal with any questions. We will definitely do this again if we are in the area.

Enjoyable week in a relaxed environment!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week at this great two bed / two bath condo. It was just as advertised and fit our needs perfectly. The condo was spacious, clean, and decently appointed for a rental. The area is fairly low key and not too congested especially for being fairly close to the parks. The pool was always clean and the staff was very courteous. Numerous restaurants, grocery store, etc are just minutes away, some even within walking distance. Couldn't be happier with our stay, and definitely plan on returning again.
