We stayed at the Orlando Love Lodge for two weeks. We found the villa easy to get to from the airport using our rental car and sat nav. The parks are accessible via the main freeway I4 just two junctions North, or on a back road which was handy for avoiding heavy traffic times.
We cook at home so it was nice to have an adequate amount of utensils already in the house to cook and bake on the nights that we stayed in. There is a washing machine and dryer to get your clothes cleaned easily.
Just be sure to check entry code for front door is correct with the managing agents. After a long flight we had the wrong key code and at one stage we were thinking that we would be having to find a motel for the night. Luckily the managing agents were monitoring the messages even at 10 pm on a Sunday night when we arrived.

This was our first time at this rental property & we were very pleased with our experience. Lovely development highlighting nature at it's best. Quiet area with fine amenities. The owners were very good to deal with, and the property well maintained! We'll be back again in 2016 & looking forward to it!

I don't know why anyone would want to stay in a hotel when you can spend the same (or less) money for the comfort of a four bedroom home. This is the 7th or 8th time my adult son and I have rented a home in the Davenport area (it was just the two of us). I literally looked at 400-500 homes through 3-4 different rental sites trying to find the right fit without breaking the bank (we were there 9 nights). When looking for a rental home, we have about 10-12 things in a house that we look for and this home checked almost all of the boxes. The house has two master suites (potentially 3), free wifi, great TVs, cable, a safe, an open floor plan, a nice sized, fully equipped kitchen, and a pool. For those who love the parks (which is why we visit the Orlando area), the house is within 10 minutes to the Disney parks exit off the 192 and a little bit longer drive to Universal and Sea World via Route 4. The house is simply but tastefully decorated and I slept better there than I do in my own bed (not sure if it was because the bed was so comfy and/or because I was so tired after being at the parks for the day)! The garage has been converted into a game room. We would rather have had the garage to park the vehicle in since it's not a gated community (the only two boxes this house didn't check), but for anyone who has kids, I'm sure they'd prefer the game room. The third "shared" bathroom also has direct access to the third bedroom (it was either a full or queen bedroom), so there is the potential for a third master suite if you are traveling with three couples/adults. The property is located within an HOA, so there are security cameras throughout the small community which made us feel more secure. We didn't use the pool during the trip but I enjoyed sitting outside on the swing on one of the nicer evenings (it was cool when we were there). I loved this house! I highly recommend the Orlando Lodge to anyone who wants to be near Disney but also wants all the comforts of home at a reasonable price. My only concern when we return to Orlando the next time is that the house will be booked and not available for our stay!

Due to unforeseen situation, I had to rearrange my travel dates and the owners were very willing to accomodate the change. The home is in good conditions and our family (both adults and children) really enjoyed being at the home. It is located near supermarket and convenience stores and many deliveries, great for the tired legs. I would not think twice to rebook this home for my next vacation. Thanks Gary and Shirley.
