My Family's First Disney Vacation

My Family's First Disney Vacation
  • 4 of 5
The condo was just right for my family of five and I'm glad I found it. We enjoyed staying there very much, despite a couple issues.

The condo was so much nicer than hotel rooms or a suite (which likely would have been too small, anyway). The kids enjoyed playing with the foosball and pool tables. The wi-fi worked flawlessly. The condo was VERY clean and well stocked with towels. The beds were comfortable for the kids. No complaints from me.

There were a couple of downsides, if I'm being honest. Our stay at the condo was marred by the fridge and freezer, which ruined over $100.00 in food. I don't know whether there was a problem with the unit, or it's turned off between visitors. Whatever the case may be, it took two days for it to cool down and actually freeze anything. Management (David?) was called, no other complaints had been made prior to our arrival and, to the extent I'm aware, nothing was done. There may not have been anything wrong with the unit. Management should anticipate renters using the freezer/'fridge and leave it on. I was pretty upset about the waste of food and money because of this.

The other thing I'd like to bring up is the matter of checking-in at the resort. Is it mandatory, or optional? The property description wasn't clear but, if I'm being honest, it's a question I should have asked before our arrival. Once you check in, you're locked into paying the resort fee for each day you're renting the condo. Paying the full resort fee was not an option, nor was it something you could pay just for a single day you accessed the "resort". Your kids will enjoy the pools, water slides and lazy river (all of which were clean). However, if it had been up to me, I would have skipped it in favor of the nice, quiet clubhouse pool near the condo.

The property is very conveniently located. Grocery stores are nearby as well as restaurants and shopping (everything's on state route 192, to the north). It's a very short drive to Disneyworld and not that far to Universal Studios. Kennedy Space Center is an hour away (bring change for the tollways!).

Overall we really enjoyed the condo and would gladly rent it again for another vacation. I don't hesitate to recommend this property to friends. On balance, we had a very good experience!!!

Owner's Response: We are glad, that you and your kids enjoyed staying in our house. Sorry for a problem with a refrigerator. Our repairman found, that it was cooling and didn't need any repair. Previous guests and a following guest didn't experience this problem. Also, our refrigerator is not turned off between visitors. Wasn't the freezer accidentally turned off? Wasn't the airflow blocked by the food in the cooling area? Usually it is noticeable, if the unit is not cooling, while the food is put in.
The check-in and paying fee at the Regal Palms resort is mandatory for all guests living in Regal Palms. However, it is optional for guests in our home. They don't need to check-in at the Regal Palms Club house, unless they want to use Regal Palms pools and pay the resort fee.
The toll way #417 to Kennedy Space is more expensive than the toll way #528.

Perfect for Our Family

  • 5 of 5
This home was perfect for our family of six (children's ages 9-17). It was in great condition and very clean. Our teen boys loved the pool table and foosball game in the patio room. Our tween girls loved the lazy river and water slide at the resort across the street. It is near a Publix grocery store and less than 10 minute drive to Wal-Mart. (Making meals at 'home' allowed us to affordably feed the family during our week-long stay.) The drive to Universal Studios was about 30 minutes. Disney was closer.
The management was very responsive when I called to report the internet being out due to a thunderstorm the previous night. They had it back up within a couple hours.
This experience was so much better than the time we stayed in two small rooms at one of the Disney Value Resorts; and the cost of this home was almost a 1/3 of what we paid to stay at Disney. I recommend this rental to anyone who is value-minded and prefers to feel at home while on vacation.

The best vacation home!!!

  • 5 of 5
This is the nicest vacation home rental! It really made for a wonderful vacation for our family! The kids loved the giant, spacious Florida room, the home had a very open floor plan which works well for being able to watch children. The home is modern and just perfect!!! We had the BEST time and will be staying here for all of our future vacations to Orlando! The booking coordinator and property manager were WONDERFUL!!! The booking coordinator answered all questions emailed to him and the property manager took such wonderful care of us! We can't speak highly enough about this home and the people involved with renting it!!! Thank you so much for such a great vacation! We can't wait to go back to our new vacation home :-)

Fun Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in this home that is conveniently located steps from the Regal Palms club house and pool. Our little ones (1 and 3.5) had a great time playing in the Regal Palms pool. In addition to the pool there are two playgrounds within walking distance from the house where the kids can play. On rainy days, the screened in patio was perfect for our small children to run around and play. Everyone had a great time at this Highland Reserve home.

house worth the price

  • 4 of 5
The vacation home was exactly as pictured, it was very spacious for 6 people. David, the Property Manager was very helpful and accommodating. We requested for a pack and play for my 7 month old daughter, but it didn't lock properly when we got there. Gave David a call and he and his team was there in an hour checking if they can fix the pack and play, they couldn't so they gave us a new and efficient one.

The only reason i gave our stay 4 stars was because Peter, the booking coordinator didn't reply to my inquiries in a timely manner. We were already at the house for 2 days before I heard from him, and David already helped me out with my inquiries. But overall, I would recommend this house, it's just a few minute drive to restaurants and walking distance to publix.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review, but your note, that the booking coordinator didn't reply to your inquiries in a timely manner, is not appropriate. Peter answered your several questions within a few hours and based on your e-mail, you were happy with his responses. Unfortunately, your last e-mail, requesting to allow your unregistered guests to use resort facilities, was very unusual and required consultation with the Regal Palms management. You sent this request just 2 days before your check-in date. We recommended you to contact our on site manager David, who helped you quickly, based on your e-mail

We liked the house. It was much better than staying in a one room hotel. We enjoyed every part of this house. It was very clean, comfortable with plenty of living space, and exactly as shown in photos. A shopping center with the Publix supermarket and restaurants was just 4 minutes walking distance. We divided our time between the Highlands Reserve swimming pool and the Regal Palms beautiful water park. We should mention also a pleasant view of orange trees in the backyard.
