About JanaLynn Young

We are a family of 6, with two older boys and two younger girls, who are our inspiration for creating this villa. We live in Utah, and find the attractions and beaches of Central Florida to be the most enjoyable vacation destinations for our family, young to old, (even grandma and grandpa enjoy themselves!), because all the children and adults are equally entertained. In fact, grandma and grandpa loved Florida so much, they have retired nearby our vacation homes and now manage our properties. Our homes are created for family reunions and groups of friends enjoying themselves together at Disney!

JanaLynn Young purchased this villa in 2012

Why JanaLynn Young chose Rolling Hills at Formosa Gardens

1. You can't get a villa any closer to Disney. So nice to come home mid-day and refresh the family for a night of fireworks and more attractions!

2. We love the vaulting, tall ceilings, and openness between kitchen, great family room and dining areas, allowing large groups to be together!

3. So many master bedrooms have their own private bathrooms. This is a must for adults!

4. The pool is large with a spa, and gets great sun year round. Some villa pools are pitifully small or shaded. And, the pool has direct bathroom access! Crazy, but there are actually very few villas that have this feature, which we find an essential for children (adults love it, too).

5. These themed rooms are the best of any we have ever seen, and so agree our guests. With toys and dress-ups, we've outdone even the Disney Resorts...come see for yourself!

If you've stayed in other large villas, you'll surely find this to be the best floor plan of any property in Orlando!

What makes this villa unique

In keeping with the age-less appeal of Disney and the ocean, we have created 'Happily Ever After' luxury playhouses to likewise fit the needs of children and adults alike. In addition to the fun of a private spa and pool, the villa is outfitted with all the comforts of home grown-ups are used to--ensuite bathrooms, a well-stocked kitchen with lot of small appliances and cookware, new, clean furnishings and linens; yet 'Happily Ever After' also has more kids' toys, dress-ups, movies and games than children can imagine! A stay at 'Happily Ever After' is a vacation in itself, for everyone!

Amazing house for kids AND adults!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely wonderful. We rent through VRBO very regularly. This is def one of my very favorite houses and we already have plans to go back TWICE! This trip, I went with a group of adults. There were 10 of us and the house had PLENTY of space and privacy. The rooms are beautiful and fun; the house is immaculately clean. We had such fun with the grownup costumes!

The pool was warm, the hot tub was awesome! The kitchen truly was fully stocked with everything you would need to cook fun breakfasts and delicious dinners. Theres plenty of room for everyone to sit to eat, relax, hang out and sleep.

Of the 5 couples who went, one has already booked to return with her family. I've already set two dates, one with family and one with friends. And our group (feeling truly guilty for going without the kids) are planning on going back with the kids, this time!

Easy access to the parks; close to stores. But quiet!! The layout is also perfect for communal hanging out or private, quiet times, even with a large group.

Lastly, JannaLynn is super easy to work with.

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful and amazing house with us! Well be back soon!

Best vacation home ever!

  • 5 of 5

At the risk of never being able to rent this house again because of high praises, this was THE perfect place for our family vacation. We had our 6 grandchildren ranging in age from 5 months to 10 years and their parents for the weekend. We wanted to celebrate one granddaughter turning 5 and we thought Disney was the perfect place for the birthday party. We did not want to stay at a Disney resort as our costs would have been significantly more. This house was even better than staying at a resort because it is incredibly fun and has tons of room. We had 10 adults and 6 kids. Everyone had plenty of room but more importantly the kids were entertained the entire time we were there. Between the princess costumes and the themed bedrooms, they were living an enchanted life. For the one boy in our group, he was also in fantasy heaven because there is a Star Wars themed movie room with tons of costumes from the movie and play station. The pool and hot tub were added bonuses for additional relaxation time. We were not charged extra for the heated pool which was nice because part of our time there the weather was warm enough to swim.

The location of this house is perfect for traveling to Disney. Takes just a few minutes and not much traffic going to the parks or going home. Also, there is a nearby shopping center with a grocery store and other places to pick up things you need as well as some restaurants. We cooked at the house each night which was made very easy because of the gas grill and a very well supplied kitchen to handle just about any meal you might want to cook and plenty of dishes for our large group.

When we come back to the Orlando area we are definitely going to rent this house again. Really great time and the owner, JanaLynn, is attentive and responsive.

We were completely awestruck when we arrived at this house. The pictures do not do it justice. Each room in this house is so detailed in its theming. Our son stood with his mouth open for a good 3 mins staring at the life size Jabba the Hut (his favorite Star Wars character). The kids played the entire time we were there and the adults joined in too with all the different costumes available. We cooked most of our meals in, as the kitchen is stocked so well. The owner is so friendly and easy to deal with. She was there for any questions we had.

Throughout our stay, we were pirates, jedis, princesses, hogwarts students, Kylo Rens....the list could go on and on. We all had such an amazing time, but my favorite part about staying at this house is that it allowed us to bond as a family. Sure we watched movies together (amazing movie collection at the house), but we actually had fun together without staring at a screen.

The beds were so comfortable and fitted with clean, modern bedding. Each bathroom of the five bathrooms has a shower so it was great when everyone was trying to get ready at once. The house was impeccably clean and very well stocked. I honestly cannot think of a negative to our stay, other than having to leave. We will definitely be back! Thank you for an amazing vacation!

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

We love this home so much we keep coming back! Everything is amazing. Our family loves to see the decorations in every room and to spread out throughout the house. We all had our own space! If you are looking for an amazing place to stay close to the parks with the comforts of home look no further!
