Look no further...this is the perfect home❤️

If you are looking for the perfect home to stay in...this is the place! Sarah and Ken are amazing home owners and they went out of their way to make our vacation to Disney and Florida awesome. You may be tempted to look at other places, but I can honestly share their home is the place for you. My family and I enjoyed every minute and could have stayed for a few more days just to relax. The kids loved the Harry Potter room, my parents enjoyed their room and we enjoyed our room as well. The kitchen, enclosed porch, and family room make it the perfect. We can’t wait to go back!!!

Great location for Disney and Universal

We loved the house and the easy access to the Disney parks. Made it very manageable to get to the parks early and then head back to the house for late lunch and a little break before going back for the evening. The house was stocked with plenty of supplies to get you started.

Love it!

The house is well organized and clean. We found everything we were looking for in a place in Sara and Ken's house. The view is awesome, the balcony and the decoration. If you are a big fan of Netflix like me, they have such huge full HD T.V.s that you can really enjoy watching. Sara was super nice and get back to us whenever we needed. Highly recommend the place!!

Always a great place to stay!

We have stayed in over 20 different places while visiting Disney World over the years, The Disney Cabins, The Contemporary, The Polynesian and privately-owned Bonnet Springs, The Blue Heron just outside Disney Springs , many places in Lake Buena Vista(many have changed name over the years), both Disney and non-Disney affiliated and many private houses and town homes with the little pool right in the back. We rated this interior the best and/or at least not second to any other we ever stayed at, possibly tied, but those were 500.00 a night places! As far as bang for the buck, if you want a high end 3 bedroom that makes you feel like you are on vacation, this is a great choice. Pull up to your door, unload your groceries and enter a place as nice as a high-end resort. If you want a large building you need to drag the groceries through just becasue it has 4 restaurants on site and a lazy river, be my guest and pay the 349.00 a night, we have done so ourselves(and still only 2 bedrooms). We wont be doing that again though, this is just so much simpler! Some people in the review sections are saying 10 minutes or more to get to Disney. That might be for them and really still is a very good time, but we did it in 6 and 7 minutes many times. And I mean in the lot and parked at Animal Kingdom! Magic Kingdom is of course way on the other side and going to that park does take a good 20 to 25 minutes(I think 16 minutes was my record at 6:00 am), but realize you can stay at many a Disney resort and be 23 to 25 minutes from Magic Kingdom or one of the other parks, Disney is 42 Square miles! So just book it!
