About the property

7 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 15

Our Magic Clubhouse is truly a themed vacation home that is located 4 miles from Disney! The home is located in Formosa Gardens in the Rolling Hills Estates which is one of the closest vacation rental communities to Disney. This home is ideally situated close to Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, and all Central Florida attractions.

For the little princesses and Superheros:

Every little girl will feel like a princess in her very own Frozen themed room complete with frozen walls, icicles, snowballs and 15 princess dresses to model. While the girls are busy in their Frozen room, the boys will be preoccupied in the Avengers themed bedroom which is equipped with a TV and XBox 360. At night, your kids will feel like a superhero when the Avenger night lights and headboard illuminate the room.

For the teenager video gamers and tweens:

We have designed a video gamers dream room decorated in a Tron theme. This room is equipped with a TV and Playstation 4 to keep your gamer entertained. The tweens will lose themselves in the Harry Potter room in preparation for their vist to Universal Studio Diagon Alley. The Gryffindor and Slytherin dorm room comes with costumes, potions and the complete 8 movie series to watch on TV.

Relax after a day of amusements parks!

For the kid at heart we have a place for the adults to escape! While the kids are busy in their rooms or in the swimming pool, dad can escape to the Daytona Nascar Gameroom for a game of pool or to watch TV. The Master bedroom has a king size bed and hundreds of TV channels to choose from. Just in case you don't have time to get to the beach, we have designed a peaceful Cocoa Beach room complete with a king size bed, ocean sounds and LED candles. The Animal Kingdom room has a queen size canopy bed to give you the safari experience.

When mom's happy, everyone's happy!

Mom can escape to the swimming pool or relax in the 'Be Our Guest' living room to read a book or watch her favorite tv shows. When it's time to eat, mom will be happy to know that the Mickey's 50's Diner for kids will keep the kids happy while the adults can enjoy a conversation without interruptions.

Great House

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for two main reasons: the themed rooms (kids LOVED them) and the close proximity to Disney World and both worked extremely well! It was convenient, easy to get to and from all of the attractions, and located on a cul-de-sac, so traffic was non-existent. My suggestion is when you stay here, be sure to do a walk through upon arrival. We did that, came up with a list of items that needed attention. Once this email was sent, they fixed everything within 24 hours! I get it that things happen, and I was very impressed with the quickness of repairs that took place. Also, we paid extra for a mid-week cleaning and they did an excellent job! It was very nice to come back to a completely clean house! The pictures on the website are very true to form, with one exception. The living area of this house is quite small, and the living room furniture is very uncomfortable. We had perfect weather and so we spent a lot of time outside by the pool and the seating accommodated our group nicely, which was awesome; however, we had planned to grill out, but once we saw the condition of the grill, we decided not to attempt it. The grill was very dirty and old - not something I would use for a family meal. When we asked the kids what they enjoyed the most on their vacation, three out of five of them immediately said the pool! There were a couple of days we left the park early, so they could go back and swim. I have one final suggestion. The men (and boys!) loved the man cave. We visited during Super Bowl weekend, and the expectation of the "man cave" was the guys would be able to watch the game here. Unfortunately, the TV in this room has no cable, so that was not possible.

I would strongly suggest making the man cave "complete" by adding cable TV. This is an excellent house and we all had a great experience while staying there. I would definitely recommend staying at this property!

Loved the themed rooms!!

  • 4 of 5

Overall the stay was good.

The first day we got there the home was pretty clean, we did notice that the garbage had not been emptied (outside cans). The alligator bathroom sink was very slow to drain, and there were several light bulbs out throughout the house. The Tron/Harry Potter bathtub also was very, very slow draining.

They provided linens, and bedding which was great. This may be little but it was an annoyance as the sheets were ill fitting (small and would come undone through the night). Some of the pool toys were moldy, and the boogie boards were broken, and leaving foam in the pool.

We did contact the property management company and they were able to get the light bulbs replaced by the 2nd full day we were there. Some of the kids costumes were torn/stained (again a small thing as I'm sure lot of kids have enjoyed playing with them!!), and a few masks were broken (nothing major).

Our stay was very comfortable, and we really enjoyed the themed rooms!! There was plenty of space to spread out with our whole family. The common areas were great as well. Fully stocked kitchen which was very good.

We would DEFINETELY recommend this property and property management company to our family and friends.

It is located on a cul-du-sec which was great, very quiet. Loved the outdoor grass space as well as the pool.

It is very well located, close to the parks, shopping, and dinning.

Overall it was a very good week for our family, and we were happy with our stay!

This was the perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

After spending many weeks searching for the perfect house, we came across this gem. It was a little larger than we needed but too amazing to pass up. The attention to detail in each and every room is phenomenal. The little ones loved the Frozen room and the Avengers room; both full of costumes and games to keep the kids busy for hours. Outside of the Avengers room is Jurassic Park (with a large caged dinosaur right outside of the window). A small shed near the dinosaur was turned into a makeshift Jurassic Park lab.

The master bedroom was decorated adorably and the master bath was quite large with a huge tub. The Safari room was tucked in a corner of the house with a fireplace on the wall that actually heated up.

The meticulous details were so much fun for all of us to find. Skeleton keys were found throughout the house and each time we found another one, we had to make sure to announce it to the group. The kitchen was complete with Minnie / mickey plates and cups. Even the spatula’s were Disney themed. The Beauty and the Best ceramic plates tied into the living room theme of the same. What a fun place to spend a week.

Relaxing in or by the pool after a long day at the park was the best way to end the day.

The neighborhood was very clean & quiet and was close to everything we needed (parks, grocery, restaurants, Target, gas stations).

Michael was very responsive to any questions that we had. This really was the perfect house for us! I am sure it will be for you too!

Great House

  • 4 of 5

We stayed there right after hurricane Irma. Thank god she didn't do much damage.. The house was wonderful. The kids wanted to leave Disney early everyday to go to the house to swim and play. Very well maintained. Any questions or problems the owner was very quick in taking care of things.

Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

Not really the vacation stay we were hoping for, but maybe we're a little naive

  • 2 of 5

First the good: The pictures are accurate. This house is just like the pictures, very spacious, and cute as it can be. Everything was very clean and organized, the pool in the backyard is well maintained. And it is VERY convenient to all of the amusement parks and to Target, Sam's Club, grocery stores, etc. Then the bad: The dishwasher was broken and full of nasty water when we arrived on Sunday. It didn't get fixed until late on Thursday. That's a lot of hand washing dishes for nine people, and when we complained the owner seemed to feel like we should just accept the fact that "things happen" and shut up and wash the dishes. That wasn't quite how I had planned to spend a large chunk of my vacation time. He made NO offer to compensate in any way. As advertised, there are TONS of electronic games, TV's, etc. But better bring your own batteries, because most of the remotes were dead, some didn't even have batteries in them. Same for light bulbs - we went on a search-and-destroy mission to get working bulbs in the places we needed them most. So - overall, this was my first experience with VRBO and we had a decent vacation - more comfortable than had we chosen a hotel. But I won't be going back to this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to give your review! I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the amenities of the home and its location. I do apologize again for the dishwasher going out. The guests before you didn't report it, and getting a major appliance bought, delivered and installed by a licensed electrician took a few days. I understand that it was inconvenient to hand wash dishes on a daily basis. All the best to you and your family.

About Michael

We are an American family of five that have lived abroad for the past 8 years. As a result of being an expatriate, we have been blessed to be able to travel the world with our children. We have always preferred vacation homes over hotels because of the privacy and flexibility they provide. We look for homes that are safe and would allow our friends and family to rest, relax, reconnect and most importantly have fun!

Michael purchased this house in 2014

Why Michael chose Rolling Hills at Formosa Gardens

As an experienced traveler, we've learned to look for vacation homes and locations that have something for everyone and everyone knows what to expect when we arrive. With this in mind, each family member has contributed in deciding what should be included in the 7 bedroom house. Our teenage son designed the Epcot Tron room complete with a Playstation 4...not 3, but a 4! (Apparently, this is critical to gamers.) Our 7 year old selected the Disney Frozen theme and has over 15 princess dresses for visiting princesses to model! Our 12 year old created the Universal Studios Harry Potter room which comes complete with potions, movies, books and costumes. While we all have our favourite, every mom knows that being able to have an uninterrupted conversation, read a book or watch a movie is what truly makes it relaxing. With that in mind, we designed the Mickey's 1950's Diner to keep the younger ones busy during meal time. It comes complete with a mini jukebox, 1950's custom made diner booth for children, a working pay phone and a Coke machine. We're continually making improvements and hope that our guests will enjoy the attention to detail throughout the house to make it a memorable experience.

What makes this house unique

We believe the most important thing is that your vacation feels like a vacation and you don't go home feeling more tired than when you arrived. The Magical Clubhouse has been designed with that in mind. Our hope is that you have a safe and fun place to reunite with family and enjoy a Florida experience without even leaving the home. While the amusement parks are great, what the family will remember is the time spent together in this unique and one of a kind themed experience.

We welcome the opportunity for you to 'Be Our Guest' in the specially designed Magical Clubhouse.
