About the property

Condo, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Chip's Condo is located so close to Disney that you might actually see Chip and Dale! Located less than one mile from Disney's Animal Kingdom Chip's Condo is surrounded by every eatery imaginable from McDonald's to Outback Steakhouse from Cracker Barrel to Carraba's and over 20 other eateries within 2 blocks.

Very few homes offer a serene natural lake front view but located less than 1 mile from Disney. Spacious, Convenient and very private, Chip's Condo is easy on your budget while providing you and your family a better quality stay!

This home was my parent's winter home and is maintained and kept as you would want it for your family! It is over 1,650sq ft and features Two master suites, each with king size bedding, private bath with over size showers.

One of the other bedrooms has twin beds the 4th bedroom features a queen sleeper sofa that sleeps like a bed! They have a full bath between them and great seperatio for privacy with a full bath between them.

The private den with personal closet makes room for two more guests in case you need room for 8, and is a great, quiet reading area as well.

Great Entertainment does not end at the parks, as we have a Big Screen TV outfitted with a Sony Playstation 2 for game time. The living room ia very comfortable offering a lazy boy chair, a side chair and a comfortable sofa to relax and enjoy the great views of beautiful Sun Lake.

The covered lanai offers a recliner lounger with ottoman and a glider for that relaxing movement for the active person.

Chip's Condo at Sun Lake Condos is a place you can stay without having to have a car to go to the many theme parks, convention centers, outlet shopping malls and both the Orlando International Airport and Sanford International Airport. Public bus #55 runs along US 192 - only one block from the development. You can change buses and go anywhere in the area.

This condo offers great value - you can save a lot of money by staying right across the street from Disney and yet stay in a fantastic well furnished property! Once you stay with us you will probably never stay in a cramped hotel room again!

This home is my parents total source of income, so we value your business and you can expect the home to meet a higher standard than any hotel..

If you would like to consider a pool home or something larger please look at listing #4559 - our very large 3 bedroom pool home; or Listing #7170 my custom built one of a kind four bedroom luxury pool home and finally our 6 bedroom resort home located in Windsor Palms resort - listing #7171, Listing #9390 Paradise Palms.

About Jhony Alvarez

We are two retirees from Kentucky. We sold our family farm and now we are in our 80's and want to take advantage of the warm Florida winters. Our son manages the business and takes care of our home as his mother taught him! You will find it to be clean and meticously maintained - if you find it otherwise please let his mother know!

Seriously, we hope you enjoy our home when you visit Disney World as much as we do. We appreciate the guests we have had who have taken care of Chip's Condo when they have stayed with us. Our goal is help our son's business and to make sure he has quality properties to offer you!

Enjoy your time at Chip's Condo!

Jhony Alvarez purchased this condo in 2008

Why Jhony Alvarez chose Central/Disney/Orlando Area

Our son lives here and we love all the things to do and of course the great winter weather! You are so close to all the theme parks and many, many great restaurants. We chose this as our winter home 20 years ago and purchased this property in 2008.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy just seeing the sites of Central Florida. So many great places to see and of course many places to eat! We walk everyday for our health and it is a great safe place to do it! Many restaurants like Cracker Barrel, Carraba's, Outback Steakhouse, Bone Fish Grill, Friday's, Red Lobster, Buffalo Wild Wings, Taco Bell, Subway, Chick-fil-a, Wendy's, Burger King, McDonald's Golden Corral and many others a short two block or less walk from the entry.

Also Winn-Dixie and Walgreens in the shopping plaza next to it. Two miniature golf courses within two blocks and public transportation, LYNX, has stop in front of complex - so travel to all parks, airport, shopping centers and conventions centers is accessible without having a car. You can not find all of this in ANY other complex within 1 mile of Disney!

Amazing Location. Right next to many stores (Cracker Barrel, Giodano's Pizza, TGI Friday's, Walgreens, and a grocery store) within walking distance. Clean and Roomy. Everybody had a bed, 2 Kings, 2 Twins, and 1 size full pull-out sofa. We had everything we needed. Family enjoyed our stay and will come back. Had an issue and Manager was swift about coming to tend to it. Please, don't leave ANY food or open drinks out on the counters because sugar ants may come. Otherwise, you should have a remarkable stay. I highly recommend staying there. No regrets!

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We had the distinct pleasure to stay at this condo from December 1st to December 10th 2016. I am an experience traveler and can say with complete confidence this is in the top 5 private condos we have rented in my lifetime. I am 64 years old with two teenage boys and wife. The condo was perfect in all respects. I especially appreciated the bedding and beds. If there is one thing that makes a comfortable stay it is the quality of the beds and bedding. Ground floor unit with screened porch for morning coffee and view of lake. Groceries and restaurants were within walking distance although we had a car. The condo had all of the amenities one needs while on vacation. Not too much stuff, not too little, just right. Jhony and I had only one discussion on the phone and he left us alone to enjoy ourselves. He obviously does a great job for the owner and it shows. We will be back for a longer stay next year. The one bad review I saw in VRBO is from an incoherent woman that has rocks in her head for brains.

Owner's Response: Don, we really appreciate your time, and to take it to review our property is much appreciated. As they say you can't please all the people all the time - but we try. We are very happy and honored that you found our condo to be what we said it was. This unit is my parents personal Florida residence and it probably shows! They are demanding and of course everyone wants their parents to have the best. Everything you said about location and everyone involved we find to be very true - as do most of our guest. Thanks again! Mickey, Jhony and the team!
