Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house instead of staying in a hotel to have more room. It was the best decision we could have made. The house is stunning from the floors to the furniture to the decorations. John was a perfect host he was beyond helpful to any questions we had. This house was our home away from home.

Girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house! We rented this house for a little girls getaway for the weekend. The house was exceptionally clean and so adorable. It was very close to downtown and that made getting around very easy. The owner John was so helpful and friendly!

great

  • 5 of 5

First off, let me say that I was completely impressed with the house. It is spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. My whole family enjoyed staying there and were sad to leave. It is situated in the perfect area, only a 10-15 drive to all Disney parks, shopping and tons of restaurants. I'll definitely rent this house again

Downtown Orlando Key West-decorated Blue Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We rented the blue cottage while attending a baby shower for one of my daughters. In addition to me, my wife and two other adult daughters were in attendance. The three-bedroom house was perfect for our group, nicely decorated with eclectic Key West style accessories. All rooms were well-furnished and the property has been lovingly restored without many budget restraints. (granite counters, crown molding, big screen TVs, garage playroom,etc.)

While it was noted in the VRBO description, the neighborhood was even better than advertised with lovely mature trees, brick streets, nicely maintained and landscaped dwellings and a retro architectural feel. There were excellent dining options within walking distance or a (very) short drive. Of particular interest to us was an authentic french bakery located a few blocks away. We rented bikes and toured the entire neighborhood, which encompassed multiple lakes and several attractive parks. Downtown Orlando is only a few blocks away.

We've traveled extensively over the years, and this was one of the best venues where we have stayed. Lots of options for all age groups. All bedrooms are on the second floor…not a problem for us, but might be a deterrent to older folks. Bottom line: we'd stay here again in a heartbeat! We did not meet the owner, but he checked in with us multiple times during our visit.

Great Rental, Great Location Downtown

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Key West house for a wedding at The Veranda at Thornton park. It was so nice to have a "home" to retreat to while dealing with wedding errands and stresses. The location was perfect to walk to and/or quickly drive to the venue. We took advantage of being close to so many great restaurants in the area: Dexters, Graffitti Junction and Wildside BBQ and enjoyed walks around Lake Eola. The house itself is beautifully decorated and spacious. The garage and backyard were fantastic and exactly what we needed to entertain family and fellow wedding guests. Tons of toys and space to play kept the kids entertained, the basketball hoop was a big hit with both kids and adults! This rental is perfect for a family get-together or reunion. We agree that John is a great host, he was quick to reply to all of my phone calls and emails and when the fan in the garage did not work and he had a guy out fixing it immediately. We will definitely keep this place in mind, along with the other two Cottage Way houses and the cottage behind them for future family vacations.
