About the property

7 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16-17), All day sunshine, excellent amenities

*** Now until Sep 30th 2017 - just $139 night! ***

The 'Solana Breeze', seven bedroom, five and a half bath, villa home on the Solana Resort. Beautiful, executive, Mediterranean-style villa with fabulous south-facing pool and extended full width deck and lanai. Both the deck and pool are oversize; hence there is lots of room for sun loungers and all of your group to enjoy all day sunshine (those that want to take shade, can do so under the full width lanai). There is outdoor seating and loungers for 16 (12 chairs, 4 loungers and 3 tables). This house has ALL DAY SUNSHINE across the pool and deck! :-)

This home has its own dedicated Games Room (Pool, Air Hockey) and guests are provided with Unlimited high speed WiFi.

Located on the fabulous upscale resort of Solana, this Mediterranean style, luxuriously appointed villa will sleep 16 (up to 17) and has seven bedrooms, five full bathrooms, one half bathroom and upgraded interior designer furnishings.

The sun drenched south-facing extended deck enjoys a full width covered lanai, over-sized pool and adjoining heated hot tub spa. There is space outside for all of your group to enjoy the sun with chairs, loungers and outside dining space for everyone in your group. The deck and pool are oversize (compared to most of the homes on the resort). The gas heated hot tub heats up fast (new high performance pool heater added).

This exquisitely-styled and furnished home is equipped with everything the discerning vacationer should require. From top of the range upgraded kitchen appliances to lavish four poster and king-size beds in the four master bedrooms.

In addition, there are two further twin rooms and one twin bunk room. All bedrooms are equipped with flat screen TV and the main gathering room is equipped with large screen LED/LCD Full HD TV, DVD player, and Game station. TV is all digital. There are two bedrooms on the ground level.

The gated resort-style community of Solana is an attraction itself. The clubhouse has a pool, hot tub, sauna, fitness room, cyber Internet room, and a video arcade. There is a fabulous outside resort size pool with extensive deck, children's playground, a sand volleyball court, snack shop and large 4000 square foot luxury clubhouse lounge! There is even a mini golf course! The resort also benefits from 24 x 7 gate guard security.

Area Attractions close by include Disney (an estimated 15 mins away by car), Universal Studios, Sea World, Discovery Cove, Busch Gardens, Cape Kennedy Space Center (one hour), Gatorland, along with Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Beaches each within an hour by car.

The Solana Resort is a purpose built and developed resort style vacation community. It features an excellent range of facilities (volley ball, mini golf, swimming, Internet cafe, gym, etc.) for all ages and tastes, yet is less than 15 minutes to the Walt Disney World attractions. It is therefore suitable for families or groups of friends who are seeking affordable luxury in an idyllic central location.

A stay at this villa will guarantee a luxurious home away from home, an abundance of free local activities within a convenient but tranquil setting, but with very easy access to the many local Orlando attractions.

Great escape location from Irma

  • 5 of 5

We had to evacuate Miami and chose a central location for safety. Placed a last minute booking via HomeAway. Very easy process. Chose this home for space, bedrooms and resort. Positive reviews helped too. Didn't avoid the Hurricane of course, but the home stood up to it well. Good strong house! Thanks Andrew for accommodating us all at such short notice.

Had a lovely time, super convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

Chose this home because it offered good value for our large group. New experience for all of us. Everything worked out great. Solana has 24 hr security and nice amenities. Easy access to the attractions too. The house was just like it shows in the pictures. Loads of space, nice decor and clean and tidy. We all really enjoyed it - especially the kids and the pool.

Beautiful clean home - very close to Disney

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at Solana. This time we chose a larger home as there were more in our group. The home was spacious, very clean and had the most amazing outside space. The deck was very large with lots of seating space. We had a slight issue with the gathering room TV, but Andrew was there that morning to replace the remote to restore it to normal operation. All responses both before, during and after our stay were very quick and our security deposit was refunded before we even arrived home. This was a very enjoyable and relaxing experience and we are already planning a return during Spring Break if possible. Lovely house! Thanks Andrew - hope to see you again next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I am disappointed to read that your response is essentially an emotional retort to the fact that you did not like a charge being made against your security deposit. As stated in our terms and conditions, the guest is responsible for placing trash into bags and then placing those tied trash bags into the trash container outside. As you allowed a mountain of loose trash to accumulate outside the trash can, pests would have been attracted to the trash. Allowing trash to accumulate in this way is both unsanitary and a health hazard. Dragonflies are an airborne insect and can only gain access through open doors; hence it is reasonable to assume that doors or windows were left open by members of your group for extended periods allowing ingress. The home is thoroughly treated to keep pests & insects from entering the home. However, Florida’s hot and humid climate (especially with the added incentive caused by exposed perishable trash) may encourage the odd insect to get past these defenses. None of this was reported during your stay, it was only ever raised as a response to being charged for the unpleasant task of removing your trash (which filled up the bed of a full-size truck). With respect to WiFi, there was an Internet outage from the provider which we have no control over. The cable company require the guest to report the issue from the home to enable fault diagnosis and to enable a service visit. As this procedure was also not followed, the outage did not get resolved during your stay. In closing, I am obviously saddened that you did not find the accommodation satisfactory for your needs. However, it appears that you did not grasp the concept that staying in a vacation home is self-catering and you are responsible for your own consumable supplies. The basic procedures that we ask guests to follow have never presented a problem in the past; hence I cannot accept responsibility for you choosing to ignore the guidelines and not follow the procedures outlined within the home manual and your final instructions.

Excellent home

  • 5 of 5

There were 15 of us and the house fit our needs well. The kids spent all spare time in the pool. There were a couple of small issues to begin with such as a barbeque that had not been cleaned in quite some time and a broken off pool screen post. However this did not affect our overall comfort materially.

Owner's Response: Hi Lyle, thanks for taking the time to post your review. I am pleased to read that the house suited your needs. I have now changed the policy for the grill at this home to align with our other homes - thanks for bringing this to my attention. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Regards, Andrew

Great Property - Close to Disney

  • 4 of 5

This was a great location for our family to stay near Disney. The home is lovely and very well decorated. We appreciated the amount of space and the kids loved the pool. We did have some issues the first night with smoke alarm batteries chirping and noisy neighbors very late at night. Andrew was very responsive and replaced the batteries immediately when we notified him. Not being able to adjust the temperature below 75 was a concern for some of the family but the ceiling fans helped. We did have concerns about the lack of supplies at the house, especially the items that were needed according to the house rules . We had to purchase many items for the property during our 4 day stay - toilet tissue, kleenex, napkins, dishwashing detergent, trash bags (required to remove each day) and laundry detergent (required for laundering the property towels during stay and at departure). We agreed that we would stay at the property again but would ask more questions in advance and be better prepared.
