Our family had a fabulous reunion at Villa by the Castle. With 6 adults and 4 children we needed a large space that was fully equipped. This property had it all. The owners Steve and Sandy had excellent communication from first contact to check out which was very reasuring. There was a large welcome package waiting for us at check in so we didn’t have to rush to the store for essentials. Cleaning supplies, laundry and dish detergent was added bonuses.
The house itself was clean and comfortable. Beds were comfortable with extra linens and lots of towels for the pool. The salt water pool was warm and the hot tub was a great hit with everyone. I appreciated that there was no extra charge for the pool heat. We spent hours in it every day. Two of our kids learnt to swim during our stay. Within a short walk, was the community pool with water slides for the kids, also a huge hit. The games room in the house was used by all with air hockey being the favourite.
Although the we didn’t use much of it, there was lots of equipment for babies and young children. The stroller was very handy during our days at Disney.
We cooked most of our meals so the extremely well equipped kitchen was greatly appreciated. There are lots of dishes, glasses, pots, pans & cooking equipment. We even made 3 birthday cakes using the equipment on hand.
The house is just a few miles from Disney and we were even provided with a shortcut to the front gate. LEGO land was only 35 minutes away and was loved by all. Walmart is really close and all other major chains are nearby as are a variety of restaurants if you want to eat out.
We stayed 12 days and we still didn’t do everything we wanted to do.
I highly recommend Villa by the Castle; it is a great value and is the best equipped rental home I have ever stayed in. It provided a wonderful home base for our families and we hope to return again.
