All I Hoped For This home was very comfortable and suited our family of 8 perfectly. The beds were extremely comfortable. The pool and hot tub were warm and utilized daily and enjoyed by all of us. This is a beautiful home and would stay here again if we were to take the whole family again. Thank you Tara for all your help in making a good vacation for us. Maria, Port Colborne, Canada

Better Than Pictures This house was in a beautiful neighborhood about 20 min to Disney. As a travel agent we are skeptical to use this type of housing but, I was very pleased with the entire place for our ladies trip to the area. The pool and spa heat was working great and we all enjoyed this house. I hope to recommend this to our client in the future for a less expensive alternative to hotels in the Orlando area. Vicki

Perfect House was very clean, had everything we needed t make it feel like home. Neighbourhood is quiet with a few parks and things for the kids to do on days we took off from the amusement parks. Tara was great responding to questions immediately and even replaced a blender that was broken on our arrival and had it overnight shipped right tho the house! Would definitely recommend and would stay there again!

Perfect Rental For Family My family of 5 really enjoyed this rental. You could easily have 8-10 people comfortably in this house. Easy to get around and close to amenities. Would highly recommend. Pool and hot tub in lanai was a nice touch. Great way to relax after a day at the theme parks.

Fantastic Property Had a lovely stay in this house in the beautiful Calabay Parc. Fantastic location away from the 27, backing onto open land and only 20 minutes from the parks. Bedrooms were themed with very, very comfortable beds, a well equipped kitchen, great games room, large lounge and dining areas and fantastic pool with hot tub. Would highly recommend :)

An Excellent Choice This is a lovely, spacious house ideal for a family holiday. The property’s position on the US 27 is very convenient and allows easy access to the parks, the outlets and local supermarkets and eating establishments. The house is in a lovely location and is well cared for. The decor and furnishings are very good and the kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and cutlery, which makes it convenient to cook if you wish to do so. There are plenty of towels in the bathrooms and the beds are extremely comfortable - absolutely lovely 😊😊😊 The pool area is very pleasant and got plenty of sun from the early morning at the time we were there - November- but it moved off the deck by mid afternoon. Tara , the owner, has been a very good communicator, answering all our questions swiftly and nothing was too much trouble for her. We have enjoyed a lovely vacation here and I would highly recommend the villa.

Fantastic Experience From start to finish, this trip was fantastic and the house was one of the best parts. We took a chance and for the first time ever stayed off Disney property and I don't think we will ever go back! We are a family of 10 and it was beyond a luxury to have so much space and a private pool to relax in, as opposed to our typical 2 resort rooms. Calaby Parc is a great area, well taken care of and super quiet. The commute to Disney is not bad at all, (no longer than you would spend waiting with Disney transportation anyway) and the house is conveniently located near a Walmart and other shops, restaurants, etc. Tara was fantastic in assisting us throughout the whole process. Her home is comfortable and very well equipped! The kitchen had everything we could have needed, and we used it often. The pool was amazing and the back view was great and afforded us much more privacy than similar pool homes we looked at. The bedrooms were lush, fluffy carpeting, huge closets, plenty of space and the beds - THE BEDS!!! They were beyond amazing and nothing you will get in any resort room, that is for sure. The jacuzzi tub was a godsend after long days in the parks. Bathrooms were all clean & well maintained. Game room was A+ and the kids had more fun in there than I thought they would. Lots of pool was played by my teens during our stay. AC was great, always felt incredible to walk through those doors from the August heat. Hot water was always hot. The Disney touches and updated decor really put this house above a lot of the rest that we looked at, and we looked at A LOT. We weren't really sure if we were ready to stay off property but when we looked at it on paper, it just made sense to try. If you're reading this review, you can stop looking because this place fits all the criteria for a great vacation home. Since we stayed here, we were really able to maximize our vacation and where we would have only been able to stay on property for 7 nights, we were able to stay 10 here and still pay a fraction of the cost! Compared to what we would pay for 2 resort rooms at a moderate (the only option our family really had) we saved over $2500 for a comparable number of nights. And to have saved it while actually upgrading? Like I said, I may never stay on property again and this is coming from a Disney snob! Thank you, Tara and family for allowing us to stay at your home and giving us such a great place to come home to every day. We would definitely return!

what an excellent place to stay Everything about this house is amazing, the kitchen has everything you need, the beds are so comfy with extra sheets and towels provided, the space and comfort was amazing for us, the pool area is great with loads of seating outside, the games room was great when we had a few thunderstorms but otherwise the pool was a big hit, the area is quiet with loads of great shops approx 10 min drive either north or south on the 27, we really enjoyed our time here, we actually saw the Disney fireworks while sitting at the pool, the owner Tara is so nice and helpful with anything you ask her about, any issue was solved straight away, I would definately recommend this house to anyone travelling to Florida, we hated to leave, it really is like a home away from home the minute you step inside the door. well done Tara and family on such a lovely home

Beautiful house - Clean - Comfortable! Perfect for family vacation! I stayed with my family and I will DEFINITELY return. The beds were EXTREMELY comfortable. The location is great with Walmart, CVS and Publix right down the road. I made quite a few meals and had most of the pots and pans I would use at home. The pool was perfect for my 13yr old who loves to tread water and for my 9yr old who doesn't like water above his chest. The rooms AND the house were BEAUTIFULLY decorated. We had a wonderful time and will absolutely put this place in our family vacation rotation!

Great February Break! House was clean and comfortable. 1st Floor master bedroom had a great mattress and comfy pillows. Pool and spa were fabulous. We paid for pool heat and were happy to find the gas heater to be very quick to heat the pool & spa. Management company was quick to respond to questions & easy to contact.

Most comfortable house we have stayed at in Orlando! Simply amazing! The house was very clean & spacious! Comfortable beds in every room & a fully stocked kitchen! The pool was refreshing & the game room brought a new sense of excitement and activities for our family! 15 min drive to nearest store but it wasn't too bad. We would definitely stay here again! The hosts were very nice and responded quickly to all my questions! Loved it!!

Lovely vacation home!! Our stay in this vacation home was exactly as described. The first and most important was the cleanliness. All the beds were so comfortable, although did not use the twin beds. Since it was late October, we chose to pay for the pool to be heated. It was definitely worth it as the days were warm but the nites were cool. We loved all the open space . Kitchen well equipped, all the furniture was soooo comfortable and excellent quality of decor and furniture . Any questions or concerns when contacting the management company were handled promptly. Tara was wonderful to work with.

Great House This was a great rental. We had 5 people and bedrooms to spare! Personally the pool and large kitchen were my favorite parts, but our kids loved the game room. This place was a great value.
