About Don or Marilyn McQueen

We are Canadian owners of this lovely condo. We bought it to enjoy with our 2 daughters and 3 grandchildren. It is set up for children both young and old. The screened in private lunai is perfect for morning coffee {gets sun all day} or evening supper. Childrens playground and splash pad will amuse them for hours. Lagoon style pool is a delight for all. Pool ,splash pad, clubhouse, tennis are only 300 feet away. No need to drive to pool like larger resorts. Very quiet gated property is just far enough off main arterys to be heaven.

Don or Marilyn McQueen purchased this condo in 2010

Why Don or Marilyn McQueen chose Oakwater

Location,location, Location If Disney is your destination then there is very little that's closer. If you stand in the driveway in front of this unit you can see and faintly hear the fireworks every night at Magic Kingdom. You can walk to Mac Donalds, Burger King, Dunkin Donuts, supermarkets , shopping. There is a brand new Walmart superstore being built at the end of our street. Open summer/fall of 2017 . All of the "children" items are free to use. Double Stroller , single stroller, high chair, bed rails, two portable playpens, potty seat plastic dishes ETC.

What makes this condo unique

One thing that really appealed to us was this is a second floor unit. It is very quiet ands bright. The ground floor units tend to be darker and noisy from the units above them. There is no one above this unit. There are childproof gates at top of both sets of stairs, stairs are inside unit and carpeted. Upstairs units are larger 1480 SQ FT and brighter {more windows} Parking is right at your front door or there is a dedicated driveway and small garage . Ideal for motorcycle or storing golf clubs, strollers etc. Did I mention parking is FREE!!!

Disney

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and the resort! It was definitely set up well for young children. We used the double stroller and the bed rails which were both really helpful. The zero entry pool and pool toys were a big hit. Only complaint was that the internet connection did not work for 5 out of the 9 days we were there. It is not password protected so maybe other people are using it. I would highly recommend this house for your vacation

Owner's Response: Thank you for submitting a good review. I am upset about the internet as I was not aware of any problems. I tried several times to reach you by phone and only discovered the internet/telephone problem by accident. When we spoke on the phone {finally} I thought the problem was solved. Very sorry. You and family are welcome back anytime. Don

Great property. It felt like home. So close to Disney!

  • 5 of 5

The home owner is very friendly and is prompt when answering questions. If you are traveling with young ones, this is where you want to stay. They have everything you need. Plus, they are as close as you can get to Disney without actually being on Disney property. It took us longer to get from the car to the front gate than it did to drive there. I highly recommend this property

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to send in a review. A little dis appointed at only 4 stars. Perhaps I have been spoiled by all the 5 star ratings I try so hard for. The previous two reviews also gave me 4 stars yet when I call to actually talk to guests they seem very happy. Anyway your review was accurate and honest. Perhaps a hard marker? Thank you for sharing Welcome back anytime Don

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave another positive review. You covered all the bases. Our condo is one of the closest to gates of Disney with lots of shopping and restaurants nearby. The resort is smaller and very quiet and safe. Perfect for that evening stroll. We strive to maintain a clean and affordable family retreat. Welcome back anytime. Don

VRBO are now charging a fee to the guests for the use of their site. Their fee is a service fee and paid directly to them.
The rental fees and deposit is collected by the management company that cleans and maintains my unit in Florida.
I simply forward you details and phone number and rate that we agree on to them. They will E mail you a rental agreement and a secure link for credit card payment. This system has worked flawlessly for 5 years. Since they are available 24/7 and local to the condo it makes sense that they collect the money. I require a $250.00 deposit at booking {refundable with 30 days notice} and balance 30 days prior to move in. On stays of less than 5 nights I charge $90.00 for short term cleaning. Stays of 5 nights or over $100.00 for standard cleaning

Manager's Cancellation Policy

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
