About the Owner

In our autumn years, we are now lucky enough to take it easy and split our time between our family home in Lewes, Delaware and our vacation home in Florida. Our family have been visiting Disney for decades and we are retired Disney employees, so we've had a great opportunity to collect some amazing Disney memorabilia which you will find throughout the house.

Fabulous place to stay, minutes from Disney

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous vacation using the House by the Mouse as our home base. The home owners were do helpful answering all our questions before we arrived. They truly went above and beyond to make sure our needs were met! The house is wonderfully supplied and worked perfectly for our family of seven. The house is beautifully decorated and everything was clean and tidy. They also have binders with info to give helpful tips and directions to all the attractions throughout central Florida.
The house is in a great location, close to restaurants, grocery stores, shopping and attractions. Sarah and Fran were great to work with and we would recommend this house to anyone!!!

We will never stay at a hotel again!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved the house and the neighborhood was very peaceful. The house had everything we needed and then some. The owners think of everything. There is a nice welcome basket and information about everything was really accessible. The game room was alot of fun, there were even board games! We used the pool and hot tub every night. We stayed for 6 days, and it was the best time we have ever had as a family. We would definitely recommend it to anyone.

It was immaculately cleaned and just as it appeared in the pictures online. The owners thought of everything!

Wonderful stay Christmas 2014!

  • 4 of 5
We had an awesome experience at House by the Mouse this past Christmas! Our whole family met up for an unforgettable reunuion and it could not have been more fun. Floor plan was perfect. We loved the pool and spa and sitting out back watching the kids. We had a family tournament on the foosball table...definitely a trip highlight! Location was awesome for the parks, as well as grabbing dinner to go from grocery stores and restaurants...can't wait to go back!

A great week at The House by the Mouse!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful time staying at this well appointed and comfortable property. The house was immaculate and well stocked for our stay. It is very convenient to the Disney parks, and there are plenty of restaurants within a short drive. We particularly enjoyed relaxing in the pool at the end of the day. All in all, a wonderful place to stay while in the Orlando area!

Location

From the Owner

Well, where do we start! When we first started the hunt for our dream house in the sunshine, our wish list was enormous. We spent several months viewing so many homes that we were beginning to give up hope that we'd find one with everything we wanted. And then we stumbled across The House by The Mouse and our dreams were answered, with Pixie Dust on top! Number 1 on our wish-list was somewhere large enough that all our children and grandchildren could hang out together and the spacious open plan layout of the house fit that wish perfectly. Bathrooms were another high on the list essential. We knew we'd often have up to 10 or 12 family members gathering together and we didn't want lines for the bathroom holding us back from getting ready, so 4 full bathrooms were essential. A good kitchen was close to the top too. We knew we'd spend a lot of time at home cooking, saving us a fortune on eating out every day, so we wanted a kitchen with lots of countertop space and good appliances. Finally, the oh so important pool and spa for that glorious Florida sunshine!

Amenities

From the Owner

The pool has to be one of our favorite features of this home. It's fenced on both sides and backed by natural conservation land, so you are not overlooked from any direction. It's just so relaxing to sit by the pool, soak up the silence and enjoy the sunshine. The pool lights make it perfect for an evening dip too. The location is really hard to beat. Virtually on Disney's doorstep, we have a great short cut for our guests using the backroads, so at busy times you can avoid all the long lines of traffic and hop straight into the parks in a matter of minutes. The I-4 interstate is accessible by using another great back-road, so Universal and all the other attractions are so easy to reach. Perfect location and an amazing home!

Notes:

  • Totally Private Pool & Spa - No Rear Neighbors The beautiful pool area is a haven of peace and tranquility and is backed by natural Florida woodland so there are no rear neighbors at all. Both sides of the pool area are fenced to give you total privacy so you are not overlooked from any direction. The pool, spa and sundeck are completely covered by a mesh pool cage allowing the sunshine in and keeping the bugs out. At night, there's a great twinkling laser light beam that the kids will love! The dining table by the pool is the perfect place for the whole family to unwind and relax. Ladies, why not make the most of the spa while the guys cook dinner on the grill! Kick Back and Relax in Elegant Surroundings The spacious open plan family room offers relaxing living space for everyone. At the end of an exhilarating day at the parks, the sumptuous soft leather reclining suite just invites you to sink back and put your feet up! Bliss! There's various entertainment options such as the large 55 inch HDTV, full cable package, Netflix, Wii Game System, dvd player and a selection of dvd's and books. There is air conditioning throughout the house and ceiling fans for a nice cooling breeze. There's an elegant formal dining table that seats 6 plus seating for 6 in the breakfast nook. Full Kitchen The kitchen is fully equipped with a wide range of crockery and utensils and has everything you could possibly need to prepare a light snack or a large family meal. We use our vacation home ourselves as often as possible and, as such, the kitchen is far better stocked than most vacation homes. There is a large cooker, dishwasher, microwave and fridge freezer with ice maker. Game Room The game room is a huge hit with all ages and has a pool table, a 7 foot professional air hockey table, foosball and games for all ages. There's an AC unit to help keep you cool plus a ceiling fan to create a gentle breeze. The kids will love this space, especially with the bright and colorful Disney carpet! Spot the hidden Mickey's! Two Master King Suites The two master suites are a peaceful haven and the perfect place to unwind, relax and get away from it all. The pillow top kings are extremely comfortable and guarantee a perfect nights sleep plus there's plenty of plump feather and hypo-allergenic pillows. There is a 40 inch HDTV with cable and dvd player and a ceiling fan to create a gentle breeze. Two Children's Theme Rooms The two twin rooms are a hit with all ages. Younger guests can choose from the Disney theme room or the SurfSide theme room. Both have twin beds, flat screen TVs and share the family bathroom. Third King Bedroom Located at the front of the house giving a little extra privacy, this bright and sunny bedroom has a luxury pillowtop king, flat screen HDTV, high end linens and plenty of plump pillows. There's an adjacent private bathroom with full bath and overhead shower. Safe & Secure Reservations We are fully compliant with all local and state license requirements and registered for business taxes. We are also BBB members with a 100% no complaint track record. You can make your booking directly with us, or you can use the HomeAway Reservation System, whichever you feel more comfortable with. We'd love to be part of your vacation memories, so make your reservation today!
