Review submitted: December 6, 2007   Date of arrival: December 1, 2007

What a fantastic 3 weeks we had in the villa. We have all been to Florida a few times and can honestly say this is the best we have ever stayed in. The place felt like home from home, thank you Ken and Sarah for making it perfect for us. Your villa is fabulous and I hope you don't mind but we have already given your website to a number of people. No criticisms at all, you have thought of everything to make any one's holiday perfect.

Our stay at Serendipity Villa has been just perfect. From our first email all the way through you have been prompt, pleasant and totally accommodating. I truly felt I was coming to meet a new friend. Your home is gorgeous, and I marvel at your thoughtfulness with all the details that made our stay so wonderful. I hope someday we can meet again.

Our Disney dream vacation

Review submitted: July 14, 2014   Date of arrival: June 6, 2014

Dear Sarah and Ken,

Finally finding time to comment on our Orlando vacation and stay at Serendipity.

First off, Rick and I had no problems finding the house from the airport. Only snag was not having coins for the tolls getting there!! We were able to pick up a few at the first stops, thankfully so, because there are no attendants at the final exit. When we got to the last one, there were two cars stopped in front of us in a panic because they had no change. Luckily, we had gathered enough along the way for all of us to pay the final 75 cent toll. So, my only suggestion would be to add a note about having quarters available for the tolls.

We were the first to arrive (Our group consisted of 5 adults and 2 kids) and were thrilled with the place the moment we opened the door! Everything was perfect. Better than we had hoped! Our son and daughter-in-law were not arriving until very late that evening so we had the place to ourselves for a bit! Got settled into the master bedroom, had dinner out and hit the pool, enjoying our last quiet moments alone. Our family from Sweden were the final quests to arrive the following evening. The kids loved the theme bedrooms but only ended up sleeping in them the first night. The youngest wasn't quite ready for a bed (he fell out halfway through the night) and his older sister didn't want to sleep alone. They were happy to play in them during the day and sleep with Mama at night. That worked. All the rooms were wonderful! Comfortable, quiet and private.

We spent time at both Disney and Universal Studios. Your short-cut directions were great!! We also enjoyed the game room at the house, the pool and a few movies as well. No one ever had a moment to be bored! The information and tips you provided covered everything.

We were cautious at the four-way stop, as directed, and had to laugh when we actually saw a police car waiting to catch offenders!!

The only negative thing was the weather. Nothing you could help us with. It rained every day we were at a park, no matter the time we chose. Just couldn't avoid it! So there were a few rides and events that we never got to enjoy. But we all had a fabulous time just the same!

Thanks for making our Disney vacation such a hit!!
Sincerely, Júde and Rick Barstow

Owners response: Thank you so much for your lovely words, we are thrilled to hear you had such a great vacation and we hope you made some magical memories. As you come from different corners of the world, it must be wonderful when you all manage to get together.
We do actually mention the last toll in unmanned and coins are needed in the arrival information we send to guests. However, it's contained in the driving directions and of course some guests may miss that if they use a GPS, so thanks for the suggestion, I will make a note to mention it in a couple of different places in the arrival information.
What a shame your youngest wasn't quite ready for a bigger bed, at least he enjoyed the bedroom as a playroom! Did you try the bed rails at all? There are bed rails in the closet that can be easily slipped onto the beds to stop the little ones falling out.
I am sorry for the rain, I did put in a request for constant sunshine but the powers that be must have missed that one :)
Thanks once again for taking the time to share your thoughts, we look forward to welcoming you again someday soon.
Sarah & Ken

Review submitted: June 7, 2014   Date of arrival: May 24, 2014

Our family ( 7 adults, 3 children) stayed at Serendipity the last week of May. Walking into the house, all we could say was “WOW”. The house is better than the pictures! The house was very roomy, nice comfortable furniture, Disney decorations everywhere, well equipped kitchen, and inviting bedrooms. We were very impressed by the care Sarah and Ken gave to equipping the house so that renters can start enjoying their vacation right away. They also made sure the needs of parents were met and that the house was fun for younger children. It has a high chair, several strollers, crib, pack n play, a booster car seat, puzzles and games, life jackets (yeah) and the security fence around the pool. I was concerned about the water temperature in the pool but it was a nonissue. Going to Disney was a snap. We went early, came home around 1:00 to nap and swim, then went back. We also followed the advice of a previous renter and set aside several days to just stay around the house swimming, watching movies (there was a great selection provided), playing pool and relaxing in the hot tub. Loved the privacy fence around the pool. We would not hesitate recommending Serendipity to anyone heading to Orlando and look forward to staying there again in about 2 years. Thank you Sarah and Ken.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers

Owners response: Thank you for taking the time to review our home and for letting us know you had such a great stay.
We are pleased to hear you managed to put a few days aside to just chill out and relax, a vacation here can be exhausting, so it's a great idea to spend a few days just relaxing.
It's good to know you were able to make use of all the children's equipment and the DVDs, we try to provide as much as we can think of, so we love hearing when guests can make use of things.
Thank you for any recommendations to friends and family, we would love to welcome them and we look forward to welcoming you back for your next visit. Sarah & Ken
