About Bob & Jennie Grose

My husband and I purchased this home in 2006 with our adult children as an investment opportunity and family project. Not only do we enjoy our home and the resort itself, we have had a wonderful opportunity to meet and chat with guests from all over the world. We pride ourselves on giving our guests excellent, efficient, and personal service. We know you have many rental choices in this amazing city. Because of this, we strive to provide each guest and potential guest with top-notch, personal service.

Bob & Jennie Grose purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Bob & Jennie Grose chose Central/Disney/Orlando Area

Our vacation home is located centrally to everything Orlando has to offer. Orlando Convention Center is less than 1/2 mile away. Sea World, Aquatica, and Universal Studios are only 5 minutes away. Disney is only 10 minutes away. International Drive and its array of restaurants and attractions are 1 mile away. Everything is so close, yet the gated resort and our home are very peaceful and away from the crowds. The resort itself is absolutely beautiful and well-maintained. It doesn't get any better than this!

What makes this townhome unique

Lounging by the pool, watching a movie of my choice in the resort movie theatre, biking along the lake on the bike path, just relaxing at the town home with my favorite music...our home provides the perfect relaxing experience. At the same time, it is so close to the excitement and wonder that Orlando is famous for. It truly is a great place to spend time with family and friends.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Your home is excellent!! It was perfect for the six of us, to hang out, to eat

some of our meals, and as a fairly centrally-located spot to venture forth

to our activities.

We had absolutely no problems of any sort. And I believe we left everything in

good order.

If you ever need someone to give a good reference, please feel free to call

upon us! I thought that the value we received and the amenities we got with

your home exceeded our (fairly high) expectations.

Thank you for everything.

Awesome place to stay for Convention center and Parks

  • 5 of 5

I went to Orlando to attend a conference at the Orange County Convention Center. Then, my family joined me for a week of Disney and Universal Parks. The location was perfect! It was a nice, safe 20 minute walk to the Convention Center (it is in the next block, but the blocks are big!) And, it was a quick and easy drive to the parks. We were close enough that we came home for lunch and a swim or nap each day. It was super convenient to shopping - Publix in the next block and a Super Walmart pretty close. The townhouse itself is well maintained and comfortable. The pool and pool area were nice with plenty of seating and there was a walking path around the lake next to the complex. The owners, Bob and Jennie are wonderful, and responded quickly to questions prior to our trip. We did not have any issues during our stay, everything went smoothly. I would definitely stay there again, and have already recommended the place to friends and family. For the price of a single hotel room, having a large townhouse ended up a great plan!

nice condo in a nice community

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice condo in a nice community centrally located to Universal and Disney. The condo is very spacious which allowed our party to stretch out and relax. The carpet is a little worn and the stairs to the living floor creaked but these are things that can be easily fixed. The bedding on three of the four beds used was worn and stained and needs to be replaced, this is the only issue that kept me from giving a 5 star review.

As for the carpet, it is going to get replaced as soon as we get an opening large enough to get that done. As for the bedding being worn, we will be getting in contact with our management and get that addressed as soon as possible. Thanks again for taking the time to let us know, and we hope to hear from you again on your next trip. Best regards, Bob and Jennie

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This townhome is every bit as fantastic as it looks in the pictures and was a perfect place for my family to stay while visiting Orlando. My only regret is not having more time to spend there. Perfect location and accommodations with very friendly, helpful, and responsive owners.

Great Place to stay if going to the Convention Center

  • 4 of 5

Checked in here the Monday before the International Building Show and National Kitchen and Bath Show Convention. This townhouse is very close to all the sites. We walked to the Convention Center and luckily the Show had transportation available on the way (only about 1/2 mile but feet were tired on the way back). I would suggest taking Uber ($7 and up) from this location rather than a peddicab ($20-$25) if you are going out and do not want to drive. The townhouse was just as described. Did not have a chance to visit the pool or clubhouse. I wish we had taken our own pillows. Walgreens is right around the corner if you need something you may have forgotten. I would stay here again next year for the Convention, if we decide to attend.

Had a problem with the drive thru gate the first time. We called the management company first. The Management Company called me back the next afternoon. Not real responsive. Luckily the homeowners were available immediately and it turned out to be operator error.

Owner's Response: Peggy, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. Glad you enjoyed it. I'm like you in regards to taking my own pillow when I travel because I personally like a flat pillow. Nothing like sleeping on your own pillow. As for our management, they did not contact you sooner because they knew you were in already and did not want to bother you that night. We had contacted them immediately to let them know you had arrived and were in for the night. Thanks again and hope to hear from you next yr.
