About Joanna Allen

We are the Allen Family and we love the Orlando area. There is so much to see and do, we found ourselves returning over and over. We purchased this home in the fall of 2013 as a vacation home for our family.

Joanna Allen purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Joanna Allen chose Central/Disney/Orlando Area

This home has so much to offer. Room for the kids and their friends, resort amenities, close proximity to the greatest amusement parks and of course a place to relax after a long day at the parks.

What makes this townhome unique

The private pool is such a treat. When we stayed at other places the communal pool was always crowded and noisy. Here we can sit back and read, take a quick dip, or just have a leisure dinner and relax. It makes all the difference for our vacation. And the kids love it too!

Having the kitchen is essential. Not only does it save money (and calories) from eating fast food, it is a lifesaver for those with other dietary restrictions.

The separate bedrooms for the family is a godsend. The kids get their own rooms and privacy, as do mom and dad. The first floor bedroom is a great place for extended family members- especially those with limited mobility.

A decent option in a great resort

  • 4 of 5

First off, Encantada is a lovely resort that has everything a family could want to have a great Orlando vacation. Awesome location, lovely property, and a fantastic staff that keeps us coming back year after year. People like Nily and Breanna in the Marina Club and Kayla in the Cafe make it such a wonderful and warm experience. Its because of this amazing resort that we booked Sunset Palms this year...we wanted the four bedroom home with private pool. Our previous years we had stayed in the resort owned properties which are 2-3 bedrooms.

As our previous experiences had been with professionally run properties belonging to the actual resort, we were excited to try something new this year with the larger, privately owned 4 bedrooms. Overall, Sunset Palms was a nice place. It had everything you could possibly need to have a good stay, and its location in the resort was perfect, right on the lake and only a short walk to the clubhouse. The furniture, linens and appliances were all in good, if worn, condition, although the upstairs master bed was a bit uncomfortable. No problems though, we just switched to the downstairs master! Everything you would need to cook and serve a dinner was also provided, although some chips and cracks had to be worked around. We had a few small issues whilst there, but the owners and management were excellent about speedy replies and getting everything sorted quickly! You could tell they cared a lot, and that you would be well taken care of.

In general, this was a good property for a family or two families wanting to skip the hoopla of the Disney resorts. It was good value for the money as well.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your thought out review. We use all feedback we get from our guests to help us improve our home and services. I want to thank you for pointing out the chips in the glasses. Those glasses have now been replaced with new ones. I also spoke with housekeeping and asked them to report all worn/stained towels to us immediately. We also found that the king bed frame was broken and had not been reported to us. We ask all our guests to report any breakage so that we can repair or replace items as needed. We are having the bed replaced as I write this and we hope that all future guests will find that bed much more comfortable. Again thanks so much for your honest review. We like to make sure all our guests have a great experience and we look forward to hosting you in the future.

Great location and great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here-- it was a great location-- near the parks, shopping, grocery stores and places to eat. The home was well laid out for five adults and child. The attached pool was also nice to use after long days at the parks. The home was clean and equipped with items we needed for our stay.

The owner was extremely responsive prior to our arrival and during our stay. They had all of the amenities to make enjoying our visit to Disney and other attractions even better. The home was up to date and very accessible. We would recommend this home to other families.

Wonderful Townhome Conveniently located to everything, Private Pool, Lake View. ..

  • 5 of 5

We are part of a travel group that plans a trip to Orlando every year the weekend before thanksgiving. We have been doing this for over 15 years and 10 of those years we have rented homes for our stay. This home exceeded our expectations. Very clean, well decorated and accommodating. It really felt like home away from home. The owner & management company are doing a great job managing the property and we will recommend this home for future travelers. Thanks again & we'll be back!

New Englander escaping winter

  • 5 of 5

The description of the location of the property was accurate-drove straight to it. It is in a quiet area with convenient parking in the front-just steps to the front door. The photos reflected the appearance of the property as well. It was well maintained and very clean. The decor was pleasing and relaxing; a very comfortable environment with the amentities of home. The kitchen was well supplied, the shower was comfortably hot and the bed in which I slept was extremely comfortable.

I most certainly would recommend this townhome to friends and relatives without reservation. Shopping, dining out and all the Disney attractions are a short distance away.
