Hi Jennifer. We had a wonderful vacation and enjoyed every minute at your house. It was lovely and the weather was delightful. We were blessed with having our son, daugther-in-law and 3 year old grandson Riley visit us from Ontario so this added to our pleasure. Riley loved the pool and with his life jacket with wings we spent hours in it. We also had company for a day where my sister, and brother and their spouses came to visit as they were staying over in Hudson. We celebrated my brothers birthday with a turkey dinner and all the trimmings. I even baked biscuits, pies, cinnamon rolls, and banana bread. Your oven works great and if you gut your kitchen make sure you either keep that stove or get one that bakes as well. I love to bake so that's why I enjoyed doing it while on vacation. The young pool man was very nice and came each week we were there. We also had a fellow in to clear the garburator. I don't know what went on with it as it wasn't working when we arrived. Guess there must have been something in it. The folks at the gate were their usual friendly selves. We always find them so welcoming. We also played bingo at the club house on Friday night and won a free lunch there for 4. It was enjoyable as well. We do love Encantada and they now have a few activities at the club house which is a nice touch. Well it looks as though we won't be able to visit next year as I see you are fully booked in March. I'm pleased for you and at this time we have no plans so we'll just play it by ear. Anyway thanks again and we'll keep in touch. My husband also met the owners next door in the yellow house and enjoyed talking with them. I never got to converse with them but we always waved if I saw them out on the deck. Guess that's it and we are now back at work and freezing to death. HAHA Our wonderful maritime weather in Nova Scotia.

We stayed in this fantastic house for 4 weeks. Our contact with owner Jennifer was as we hoped, prompt and adequate. We have stayed in the Disney area several times before, always in larger villas, but they were never as perfect as this great townhouse. Bedrooms, bathrooms and terrace were larger than we expected after seeing the photos, the rest of the house was exactly as we expected. The location within Encantada was the best possible for us. We had sun until it set behind the trees opposite the beautiful lake. It was quiet and beautifully maintained. We used the resort pools several times, they were nice and warm and only a minute's walk . And how great that we could use the printers in the clubhouse to print some coupons! Encantada itself is perfectly located as well, close to the 192, a 7-11 "around the corner" where we bought the best apple fritters ever! And close to the 429, when we wanted to go to Tampa or North, it is much better than the I-4! We did a lot of hiking during our stay and Jennifer's place is perfect as a base. There are many nature preserves, parks etc. not too far away. Jennifer, thank you so much for letting us use your fantastic house, the first one we actually want to return too, maybe spend our winter when we are able to become Snowbirds (not too long now). :-)

Just a quick email to let you know we really enjoyed our stay at your villa for the 28 days and wrote in the feedback book as much. We would definitely recommend you to our family and friends. The complex itself was fantastic and the staff really nice. If we are lucky enough to come back in a few years (when we have saved up again) we will be in touch. Once again thanks for allowing us to stay in your villa and all the best for the future.

My family of 4 stayed in this townhouse with another family of 4 over spring break and had a wonderful time. It was big enough for the 8 of us, and we did not feel we were on top of each other. The pictures do not do justice as to how nice this townhouse is. It is tastefully decorated and very clean. It has everything you need for a weeks vacation. Having a washer and dryer is probably the biggest plus. We went home with clean laundry! We had to call property management once regarding the pool heater and they were there within an hour. They were very pleasant and helpful. The owner made renting the townhouse very easy and we are hoping to stay there again in the future.

Plan on coming again! The house met our expectations. The pictures were accurate, the place was cleaned and prepared for our arrival. Jennifer was very easy to deal with and answered all my questions accurately. I loved the private pool, it was smaller than it looked but definitely swimable, the only thing was that we got it heated but I didn't specify to what temperature so when we got there it was like a hot tub! We had access to the thermostat though so readjusted it. The other issue for some might be that even though the pool was private others can see through the enclosure.The grounds were really pretty and when I went (off season) not too crowded, but the down side was that one of the deep pools was too cold to swim in because the heater was broken, if you go during hot weather this would not be a problem. The location was great, close to all attractions and stores but private enough without feeling isolated or unsafe. It really was the perfect family spot. I went with 2 picky teenage daughters and 3 kids and my husband all of which wished they could stay longer! Now that must mean something!!

We had a fabulous holiday and absolutely loved the house. The kids much preferred the private pool to the communal one and were in the water night and day. For us, relaxing by the pool with the sound of the fountain was perfect. Encsntada is close to all the parks yet far enough away to feel busy. We will definitely be visiting again. Thanks also for a flexibility on departure times to fit with our flights.

Good Morning Jennifer, We would like to thank you for our time ( 2 Months- March/April 2012) spent at your home in Florida, it felt like home. Everything was just as described in your add. Beautiful! It is located in a perfect location at the resort and for the theme parks and shopping. Our daughters loved it. You, Paul and Kim were extremely helpful in every way during our stay. I hope to be able to rent from you again as this was one of our best vacations ever!

I was so impressed with this place. There were 6 of us, 4 adults and 2 toddlers around 2years old. The place is extremely family friendly. One bedroom has a toy story theme and the other a princess theme. The pool has a safety fence around it and the sliding door has a chime that goes off when the door opens. Very nice. Everything was so smoothly taken care of: I liked how we had to buy insurance to protect us and them from accidental damages (I'll get to prices below). And how we didn't need to clean up when we left as there is a cleaning service that they employ (but we left the place pretty clean I'd say anyway). The price was incredible. Under $500 for a week's stay for each family. I can't imagine staying in a hotel room with a toddler compared to this. Incredible value. Pretty much everything I saw on this website came true. There were no unwanted surprises. I would recommend this place to anyone. It felt like home to us for the week.

We've stayed in the townhome in the first two weeks of june 2011, and we're feelling "@home" from the moment we've entered this beautiful home. The home was superclean and everything we've asked for was there. Altough there were some little techical problems but Paul and Kim from the managementcompany sorten it out in no-time :-) The street is very quite, at the time of our stay we where the only residents of the 6-townhomes block so we've heard nothing at all, but we like that very well. It's nice to stay at the pool wich cathes the sun all day long so there's almost no shade, but Jennifer has bought a sun-umbrella already. Sitting a the pool you can enjoy a nice view over the lake and watch the sun go down, very romantic ;-) As i wrote earlier in this review, the home is very complete, we've never had a vacationhome in Orlando before wich was equipped with so much kitchenware, tableware, coffecups, plates and so on. For pictures see our blog : http://penpeintheusa-juni2011.blogspot.com/2011_06_05_archive.html , still 'under construction' and sorry for the Dutch language ;-) During the bookingprocess we had good contacts with Jennifer, the owner, and it was everytime a pleasure to communicate with her and she is responding very fast every time. We've recommended the townhome to friends and the've booked already for 2012. Regards & enjoy your stay,

The Vacation Home was fantastic! My family stayed during April vacation and this was our first time not staying on Disney Property and it was well worth it. The home is clean and the owners are more than accommodating. There is plenty of space and having your own private pool was much enjoyed by the kids ~ especially after a long day at the parks. I would absolutely rent this home again next year. Thanks Jennifer for sharing your home with us, we had a wonderful time and look forwad to renting again next year!

This lovely home was a fabulous alternative to the over priced Disney hotels for our family of seven. Clean, plenty of space, easy access to Disney for fun and Target for supplies. Everything we needed. Thanks so much!!!

This place is great, clean and beautifully decorated. It is very close to attractions, restaurants and super markets. The club house, with two heated pools and two spas, is a very short walk. We highly recommend this place to anyone traveling to Orlando.

My family had a wonderful time at our stay. My kids loved the themed rooms and my husband and I loved the master room. The view was amazing. I would love to go and have another stay during the summer.

This Vacation Home is everything and more than we expected. It is close to and easy to get to the Disney Parks as well as Sea World and Universal Studios. The lake view, with the fountain, was really special. We were able to walk around the lake for exercise. The club house was extremely nice with friendly attendants. Jennifer was wonderful to work with.
