  • a wonderful find!!

    "I searched for many hours before finding this house and it was absolutely worth the effort! The #1 thing I loved is Helen -- she is a total delight. Responsive, thoughtful - she clearly wants you to have a great stay in her home. The house is really roomy and comfortable, and very clean. With Helen's permission, we hosted 36 adults at a family reunion one day and it did not feel crowded. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes and basic cooking equipment, in addition to 2 coffee makers, a blender, microwave, toaster and toaster oven. Icemaker did not work, but if you buy a bag of ice and fill it, the dispenser on the door works fine. We enjoyed the BBQ grill (we did have to buy propane) Washer and dryer came in handy. Lots of towels available for use. The outdoor seating area is large and comfortable. The covered lanai is large and completely protected from rain and direct sunlight. The pool is not large, but was fine for 5 "floating around" adults -- we definitely enjoyed it in the early mornings and it is quite private except on one side. The young adults in our group loved the pool table. Indoor furnishings show some wear, but that actually made us more comfortable -- it felt like we were at home! Several of the beds have pillowtop mattresses which were very comfortable (but caution with elderly visitors as they are very high). Bed linens were good quality. We did have some issues with car parking for our guests, but resolved satisfactorily after a few calls to the security desk and for most renters, this would not be an issue. The resort itself is very nice and well maintained. Easy drive to Magic Kingdom - about 15 mins each way, so easy drop off/pick up when the older members of our party were too tired to spend the entire day at the park. Received my full security deposit back within a week. Everyone who attended the reunion thought the house was perfect -- all 36 of us would definitely recommend this house!!"

  • Super villa with everything we needed

    "We had a wonderful time in this fabulous villa. We have two young children and it worked perfectly with them. It's clean, spacious and in a fantastic location close to all the Disney parks. The pool was lovely as was the hot tub! Nearby amenities include a supermarket, pharmacy and a few different eating establishments. I would definitely recommend."

  • Great Home Away from Home

    "We are a family of 6 and we had plenty of space to rest away from each other after long days of being together at the Disney Parks. Mike's directions for the short-cut really helped -- we couldn't believe how quickly we got to the Animal Kingdom. The welcome gift was very much appreciated - thank you. This is the best VRBO experience we've had and it's mostly due to the Essaf's wonderful communication and hints. Every request was promptly answered! Note to future renters -- we had to turn off and on the router to get it to work. But once it did, our family enjoyed the ability to surf the net for information and entertainment. We shopped at the Super Target Mike and Kathy suggested and found reasonable prices so we could have a few meals at our home away from home and save some $$. We really appreciated having a washer and dryer too so we didn't have to bring quite as many clothes. The pool was open from 8 a.m. - 10 p.m. and we found several chances to cool off. It was easy to walk there from the rental place. We also enjoyed the tiki bar near the pool. We noticed a bit late that there were happy hour times with reduced prices for drinks. We will be back the next time we are in the area."

  • GREAT!!! We had 3 generations of family members

    "We loved the house called "The Castle", it was large, comfortable and it accommodated the 17 of us without any of us feeling crowded. We all loved that we had enough bathrooms and each bedroom was decorated nicely. We were able to cook our meals and we all LOVED THAT POOL AND SPA!!! The house was nicely furnished and we felt like we were staying at a relative house. The property is inside the Emerald Isles, which is a beautifully, maintained resort and we really didn't want to leave the house. Disney was about 5 mins from the house and many of the restaurants and stores are nearby as well. This is the way to go whenever you want to go to Disney or to the other Theme Parks for a few days. The owners, Mr. & Mrs Allison were wonderful owners. I spoke mostly with Linda, who was very communicative throughout the whole process before we got there. I definitely recommend staying there. My family is still talking about the trip."
