If you are looking for a villa that is 10 minutes from the Disney parks, cramped, overlooked and tired decor then this is NOT the villa for you. If however, you are looking for a Villa 30 minutes to the parks, a VERY secluded pool (you are not the least bit overlooked), hot tub and garden, well set out, very spacious and comfortable with nice sofa's etc, then this is the villa for you.
We stayed as a family of four (two adults, kids 6 & 7) and frankly if we knew another family of four who wanted to go we could have doubled up with little in the way of feeling cramped as the kids decided to stay in the same room.
We took the option to have a mid stay clean and the welcome pack of food (bread, jam, etc) which I'm glad we did. Arriving late at night from the UK meant the food in the morning was not an issue, and having a clean/refresh through the week was very welcome. Would recommend it.
The owners were very responsive when the Tumble Dryer stopped working (internal fuse blew) and got it sorted quickly.
To give a balanced review ....Gripes....? Very few, frankly. The distance to the parks is definitely ~30 minutes without traffic, no less. With traffic it was about 40. You are a little south of Kissimmee but an easy drive to the Parks (and only three miles to the nearest Walmart). When the fountain in the pool stopped (it's on a timer - on during most of the day) there was very slight road noise but nothing even remotely intrusive and certainly nothing you could hear indoors. Finally, I'm a fussy sleeper and unless the pillows and mattress was of the same set up as mine at home then I couldn't give 5 stars to anyone (hence a weighting of 4 stars on this subsection) so I wouldn't read too much into a "good" rather then "great" on the subsection ratings.
All in all, a really great villa and one I would stay in again. The house next door is for sale actually, and I'd quite like to buy it. :-)
