Sue and I promise you that if you book our home we will be here to serve you 24 hours a day 7 days a week to give you the personal attention that you deserve and expect. This is the only home we own other than our main home here in Denver. We are not a large company that has hundreds of homes to keep track of. We have a wonderful property manager and cleaning crew who would be there if you need them.

Please be aware that our downstairs bathroom is disabled friendly with grab bars, pedestal sink, and comfort height toilet. We do have a wheelchair ramp for the front door or the back doors to the pool deck for you to use. So, our home is disabled friendly but we do not represent it to be ADA compliant. Please contact us if you have questions about suitability for your needs.

Pool heat is an additional $30 per day plus 12% tax. The quote that you receive here will not ask you if you want pool heat. So a charge for pool heat charge will not be included in the VRBO quote. If you decide to book our home and want pool heat please let us know. We will have VRBO send an invoice to you for the correct amount.

Our family extends a warm invitation to you and your family to have your magical gathering at our beautifully appointed and luxurious six bedroom villa that has three full baths with sink, toilet, shower, and tub. We also have two baths that have a sink, toilet, and shower but no tub. Our villa is located in a secure gated community in Florida's bountiful orange grove country just off Interstate 4 near the junction of Highways 192 and 27. Our home is just under nine miles from the Disney theme park gates!

Enjoy a relaxing swim in our warm and sunny south-eastern facing pool and spa that is completely screened in and lighted at night. The Lanai is shady and furnished with lounges, a table that seats six, chairs, child-sized furniture, and fun pool toys.

The dining table seats eight and there is additional seating for four in the large kitchen. The kitchen is complete with cookware, dishes, and utensils. Everything you need to cook at home if you choose to do so. Both the kitchen and dining area look out onto the Lanai-pool area. You can cook up some tasty burgers or steaks on our charcoal grill that is there for your use..

The entire home is furnished with beautiful designer furniture and accessories. We invite you to stretch out in the comfortable great room that is complete with TV (one of eight TV's in our home), AM/FM stereo, DVD/CD, and movies. There are many board games to play and childrens movies to watch. Relax in all the comforts of your air-conditioned home away from home! There are nine ceiling fans in our home to help keep you cool.

On the first level of our home you will find a queen-size suite with a disabled friendly bath and also another queen-size bedroom. Great for those who do not like to climb stairs to the second level bedrooms. We have added a games room where the kids can retreat to play board games or foosball, watch TV or movies, or just hang out. If you have extra energy after a long day in the parks you can burn some calories on our exercise bike that is in our games room. The room can also be a nice quite place to relax on one of the two sofas while reading a book from our library.

On the second level there is a junior suite (the Princess room) with two twin beds and bath with an additional bedroom (the Mickey room) with two twin beds directly across the hall. The two master suites are on the second level also. Both king-size master suites are complete with lovely spacious baths with large showers, double sinks, and a jetted Jacuzzi tub.

Too tired to stay and watch the fireworks that Disney displays every night? Then be our guest and have your own private viewing from the upstairs bedroom windows! You will have a clear view of the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios displays. Or, you can relax by the pool and watch them from there also.

From the shady Lanai, the easy-to-use modern kitchen and dining area is accessible through the security alarmed french doors. The pool area is spacious and comfortably furnished and has a convenient toilet and shower with plenty of towels.

All linens are furnished for your convenience as are hair dryers, radio alarm clocks to get you going in the morning, a high chair for the little one, a Pack 'n Play if you need it, a stroller for your use, a washer and dryer for the laundry, an iron and ironing board and even a Christmas tree and decorations if you are lucky enough to be the family to be visiting for the Holidays.

Our villa is an easy drive from the Orlando International Airport. If you are driving to Orlando, access to the villa is just off Interstate 4 near the junction of highways 192 and 27. Disney is just eight miles away. Universal Studios and Sea World are only a few minutes farther. About an hour or so drive to the east will find you at the many beaches of the Atlantic Ocean or the Kennedy Space Center. You can head west an hour or so to reach the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico or visit Busch Gardens. Or, you can head south on a nice drive to visit the new LEGOLAND.

There are shopping malls, flea markets, and many golf courses for you to enjoy. A nice little 18 hole golf course is just a mile from the house. For $20 you can play that course with golf cart included!! Also about a mile away is the Highlands Reserve golf course. A nearly countless number of restaurants are nearby if you chose to dine out. Undoubtedly you will enjoy the convenience of two close-by Publix grocery stores, a Super Wal-Mart, a Super Target, and gas stations. There is an urgent care facility, if you need it, just across the street from the Super Target which is only five and a half miles away.

To maintain the pristine condition of our home we must ask that you leave your pets at home. Also, if you choose to smoke, you must do so outside of the home so that future guests, who may be offended or allergic to smoke, are not upset.

Please note. To keep our home in excellent condition, we are unable to rent our home to groups that will include chaperoned students who will be visiting Orlando.

Please, make yourself at home. We certainly look forward to hearing from you to schedule your reservations or answer your questions. During or following your stay, any comments or suggestions would be appreciated to improve your stay or the stay of others who will visit in the future. Our family, the mouse and all his pals and his competitors say:

Welcome to Mickeyn Minnies Hideaway and have a great stay!!

Beautiful property with all the necessities!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this property! Jay and Susan were super to work with from the time we made a reservation to the day we left they were readily available. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. We took a couple days to just relax by the gorgeous pool. We would highly recommend this home away from home.

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (9 adults and 2 children) truly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home! Everything was just as described. Jay and Susan are such nice people. The property manager MR Orta was too! We had everything we needed, and some. The fireworks every night was a plus. The convenience to restaurants, Walmart, Target etc was awesome. This will definitely be my home away from home when visiting Orlando! Thank you Jay and Susan for everything! Blessings!

Outstanding vacation home !!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this home after considering many others for our family vacation. It was definitely the right choice. Upon arrival we noticed how quiet and peaceful the gated community was. The home was very clean and beautifully furnished. While vacationing with our adult children, we found this home to be very comfortable and spacious. The pool and pool area were absolutely wonderful. We used it everyday. We took advantage of the grill for a couple of meals. What a nice bonus. We also enjoyed the location of the home. Jay and Susan were very helpful with any questions or inquires. If ever returning to the area, this home would be our first choice!

Perfect House for Family Disney Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented Mickey and Minnie's Hideaway March 10-15, 2015, for our family's Disney vacation. We were very pleased. The house was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, as was the pool area. There were even towel swans on the beds when we arrived. Such a special touch! Jay and Sue were great to work with and very helpful with planning our trip. It was a big plus to have their experienced knowledge of the parks at our disposal. We will definitely be looking them up for any future Orlando trips.

Thanks, Jay and Sue for helping us make wonderful memories!

First Time Florida/Disney Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house is AMAZING!! Our family (8 of us) stayed and we all had plenty of room and privacy, the kids LOVED the pool! The house is well stocked, clean, (Spotless!!) and SOOO much nicer than any hotel or resort! The house is conveniently located approx 15 minutes from all of the parks which we felt was perfect for getting away from the crowds to recharge, but is also located near many local restaurants (Try "Germans", its AMAZING!) The neighborhood is quiet, the folks are all friendly. This house is a fantastic place to stay no matter what you have on your vacation agenda! We look forward to visiting again soon, and HIGHLY recommend this house to others! Jay and Susan have done a spectacular job of making this home warm, welcoming and stunningly beautiful!

Owner's Response: Sue and I are delighted to hear that you had a great time on your getaway and found our home as nice as we strive to keep it. We also thank you for letting us know of the restaurant that you have found. We have not heard of it but will check out their menu the next time we are in Orlando. We will add it to the list that we pass on to future guests. Once again many thanks to you for choosing our home and we look forward to hearing from you again. Take care, Jay and Sue

Wonderful Christmas Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Jay and Susan's house several times. We will be traveling to Florida again this summer and unfortunately, it is already booked. We spent 3 weeks at their home over Christmas and it was wonderful, as always. Not only is the house beautiful and extremely well-cared for, but Jay and Susan are some of the nicest people we have ever run across. Their attention to detail is unsurpassed!! When we stepped in the front door, there was a small Christmas tree in the living room. The dining table was set beautifully and there was a small gift on each plate. We have 6 children ranging in age from 3 to 19 and they were ALL so excited to open their present. Their kindness and generosity to our family will not be forgotten. We will most definitely be back!!!
