Why rent a home and not stay at a hotel?
Staying at any Disney Resort, or other surrounding hotels, can be very expensive. Staying on site, you may not be able to have more than 4 people in a room. Many times the hotel pools closes before 10 P.M., and you might not even be back from the parks by then. For less than the price of one hotel room you can have the use of one of our luxury homes with private pool and spa. Our homes are equipped to make your vacation unforgettable. For less than the cost of a hotel, you will have your own home, complete with many bedrooms and bathrooms, swimming pool and spa, kitchen, and laundry room. You will also get many extras such as High Speed Internet with music channels, Digital Cable TV, DVD players and a games room complete with a Pool table.
What is the maximum number of people allowed in a rental home?
Our 4 bedroom home will sleep 8 people, plus a queen sofa sleeper to accommodate 2 more, or 10 total guests. Our 5 bedroom home will sleep 10 people, plus a queen sofa sleeper to accommodate 2 more, or 12 total guests. Each home has a portable crib that will sleep an additional infant.
Are smoking or pets allowed?
We would prefer that you didn’t smoke at all. But if you must smoke, smoking is only allowed outside or by the pool area. Our homes are fitted with smoke detectors and these are linked to a monitoring company. Our homes are pet friendly – please ask for pet rates.
How far away are the main attractions?
One of the main reasons our homes are so desirable is their close proximity to WDW and the other theme parks and attractions. Our homes are only 5 minutes from Walt Disney World, 10 minutes from Sea World and 15 minutes from Universal Studios. So close you can even come “home” during the busiest part of the day to relax, and go back later in the afternoon when the rest of the theme park guests are leaving for the day!
