About the Owner

We are now lucky enough to be able to split our time between the 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.

A terrific experience all around

  • 5 of 5
The place was clean, spacious, well-kept, and fun. I particularly enjoyed the atmospheric lights by the hot tub and the game room; the kids were in the pool nonstop, and we had guests over and made dinner with no trouble. The owners were quite helpful in general, and particularly after I accidentally left my checkbook in the room. A lovely stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for sharing your thoughts with us and we're pleased to hear you liked the décor!
We do apologize you were unable to use the spa, I wish you would have let us know during your stay and given us the opportunity to check what the problem was. We've had several guests since your stay and nobody else has mentioned it not working. I am not sure what problems you experienced, but I really wish we could have resolved it for you.
It was a pleasure having you stay with us and we hope we can welcome you back someday. Thank you once again.

A home surely to please the whole family

  • 5 of 5
Me, my husband and my five daughters, age 25 to 12 stayed here. It was beautiful and very accommodating. The location offered many available stores, restaurants and close to the attractions. The home was stocked with everything and anything we possibly needed, including a welcome basket and items stocked in the refrigerator. We will definitely be staying here again.

Perfect place for a large family

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at the House by the Mouse. We enjoyed it so much in 2012 that we came back in 2014! The home is very comfortable, very close to Disney and close to other parks. So nice to have a comfortable place to relax after a long day. We also took a couple "days off" and just stayed at the house. Restaurants and grocery store are very close. Owners/managers are right there to make everything perfect. Highly recommended!

Our week at the House of the Mouse was magical!!!!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we walked into the house we knew we had made the right decision for our family of ten to enjoy a Disney vacation. The house was exactly as described in the listing and had everything that we needed for six adults and four children ages 11, 9, 6 and 3. The property is clean and well maintained and any questions we had were promptly answered by the owners. We have nothing but good things to say about this property and the owners. The children loved coming back to the house for a swim in the afternoon and then thrashing the adults in a game of air hockey; fooseball or pool after dinner. We didn't see a hand held video game all week!!!! :) After a home cooked breakfast, we left the house at 7 am most days and opened the parks with our guides Shawn and Ashley of WDW VIP Tours who made sure that the kids were able to enjoy every ride they wanted with minimum waste of time in line - and we did indeed see EVERYTHING! Our original plan had been to go back in the evening for the fireworks but the kids liked coming "home" to the house and swimming in the pool and playing the games of the house after a home cooked meal. We did celebrate my birthday at the Crystal Palace for lunch and the children loved visiting with Tigger, Pooh, Piglet and Eeoyore. Grocery stores were not far away for all our needs. We also enjoyed, on our one day off from the Parks, the nearby playground and tennis courts. It was a perfect vacation at The House of the Mouse!!!!!!!!! And we will do it again soon I am sure. We would not hesitate to recommend the property to our friends in Washington DC, Virginia, Pennsylvania and the UK. Thank you!!!!

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.
