The house is PERFECT!!
Hi Russell! Yes we had lots of fun. We have one more day jammed packed full of stuff. We are all packed and ready to go! Sad, but kinda nice….we are exhausted! The house is PERFECT!! There is nothing I would change. We may have a referral for you for next year. We made friends with a lovely family from Louisiana. There house that they rented was not even close to the house of yours. Ours was much better, with a lot of extra's! (Wii, movies, cable) Plus they complained that their house was not very clean (Debris swept to the corner of the room, the bed linens were not clean etc.) Our house was spotless! Anyway, I gave them your info, because they are coming back next year. We let them in to look around, and they were impressed! They loved the décor, I agree, it is beautiful! SO hopefully you will hear from this nice family! We usually only come down once every 3 years, but we will definantly contact you again then! Thanks so Much Russell, and I hope you had a nice time at work! It was a HOT one!!!×

This was my first time to use Home Away and stay "off-site" for our Disney vacation. (We normally stay at Disney's Pop Century Resort) I was a little nervous as to what to expect but boy was I pleasantly surprised! I chose this property based on great reviews, value, and location and it truly lived up to the hype! This condo is clean, spacious, and so well equipped! We loved viewing our vacation pictures from each day on the brand new Apple IMac widescreen computer in his bedroom! We appreciated the DVR so that we could record our favorite shows and not have to hurry out of theme parks to avoid missing them! The kitchen was fantastic and roomy. The living room was comfortable! The owner was easy to communicate with. He always responded quickly to my e-mails! (And there were a lot of e-mails as this was my first time and I had a lot of questions!) The condo's location was perfect for us in relationship to the Disney theme parks. Travel time for us to Epcot and Hollywood Sudios was about 10 minutes (quicker than Disney's bus service when we stayed on site!) And don't forgot to try the "secret" road (Sherberth) when you go to Animal Kingdom! (Saves even more time!) The condo also has a great location within the Crestwynd Bay complex. A VERY short walk to the pool and also convenient to the dumpsters (I know, proximity to dumpsters doesn't sound that great but when you are the designated trash remover for a week, it makes you quite happy to save steps!) I will definately stay here again and I highly recommend this property for anyone needing a great place to stay in Orlando!×

We had searched many places in Orlando for the perfect vacation home. And we chose this amazing house from the description / pictures / location and the reviews. The house we got to meet more than what we had expected, It's an amazing house. It's decorated in bright pleasant colors. It contains everything you need. And everything is in perfect condition and super clean. It is centrally located for theme parks and retail outlets malls. Russell's hospitality and service is beyond what one normally expects. He makes sure that even before you arrive, he has sent everything you need to know about the house and your stay in Orlando and if you need more information, he will also provide that. We had a fantastic holiday and can highly recommend Russell and his lovely house.×

Thank you Russell - this was our second visit to your house and again we were not disappointed. The property is spotlessly clean, beds are incredibly comfortable, amenities well thought out with attention to every detail. We were left wanting for nothing. The kids enjoyed the Wii, the brilliant film selection and the board games. We had a great BBQ, really enjoyed the pool and following very busy days at the parks we were able to completely relax in the evenings. We have vacationed in Florida every year for many years and rented numerous properties, this is the only one we have booked more than once and we will definitely be booking again next year. Not only is the house perfect for families but the location is so close to World Drive that you save lots of commuting time getting to and from the parks each day. Russell is very helpful in every way, he responds quickly in all correspondance which is very reassuring when holiday planning. He has a great folder in the house full of tips and tricks to get the most out of the parks and really cares that his guests the most of their stay. 5* Accommodation, 5* Service - couldn't ask for more!×

It was MAGNIFICANT!
My family and I had a wonderful time in Orlando and it could not have been better staying in a different home. We were blown away when we first entered the complex and then the home completely took our breath away. It was MAGNIFICANT! We searched many, many, many homes (just as you may be doing if reading this review), and we are so lucky to have chosen this one and even more lucky to have such a wonderful owner/host. The home is exactly as described but better in person. It was very clean, very modern, and very "Home Away From Home". Acutally better than your own home may be, as if your own home was just as good, you would probably never leave in the first place! The owner is very customer service oriented. He answered questions almost faster than I could ask! Although we barely had to contact each other, when ever we did, we received a very prompt response. He is great! The home once again...WONDERFUL! The furniture was great, the beds were sooooo comfortable, the appliances were modern, and the entire atmosphere was calm and relaxing. Oh, and did I mention location??? Another A+ for that! Disney was literally a couple turns down the road and there we were...entering Disney! You could practically walk there if you chose to do so. There was also plenty of shopping areas for food, clothing, gifts, etc. within minutes of the home! The location was just great! Everything about our stay here was just GREAT! There were many extras such as the BBQ Grill in the back porch area, the swimming pool, indoor washer and dryer, Huge Flat Screen LCD TV, Computer with internet access, and I could go on and on. This was such a great deal and was even cheaper than renting a budget hotel! Why choose a hotel when you can have a "Home Away From Home" for less. Yes, I did my research for months and renting here for a family of 8 would be less expensive than a hotel! And there was much more room and privacy than a hotel would have. So before seaching any further, I would suggest you end your search here and go with Russel! You will not be dissapointed! I cannot wait to return next year! Thanks for reading and thank you Russell for allowing us to rent your wonderful home!×

A Fantastic Holiday
We had the most amazing family holiday. The villa was all what it said it would be and more. The location was perfect for the theme parks, which provided time to come away and chill in the afternoon before returning for the evening entertainment. The locality of local resturants was great. The villa itself was perfect for our family,it was very clean and well presented.The children loved the pool being so close. My older son loved having an imac in his room. Thank you Russell for being very organised and providing a package of information, that helped reduce the time waiting in queues rides and for your recommedations of where to eat. All in all the villa and its location has provided us with some wonderful family holiday memories. We hope to see you soon.×

Exceeded my Expectations
Everything about this experience exceeded my expectations. Russell was so helpful and easy to work with from the first time I contacted him. The house was perfect for our family (kid-friendly and still very nice for adults, clean, well-maintained, and stocked with everything we could possibly need). Very close to Disney. I've already recommended this rental to several friends and we will definitely be back. I cannot say enough about the excellent customer service Russell provided. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!×

Hope to stay again!!
This was our first trip to Disney with our kids and we had such a great time in a beautiful home. It was well maintained and very inviting. We could not believe how close it was to all the parks, just as convient as staying on site but at a fraction of the cost. Absolutely would recommend this house to all who are interested. Hope to stay again!!×

Hope to come back next year
We had a great time at Crestwynd Bay. The location is convienent to Disney and all the local shopping and other theme parks. The condo has everything you would ever need for your vacation. It was very Clean. We loved the gadgets and the huge comfortable sofa right infront of the TV. There was baby gear provided and the kids loved the Wii in the morning and when the florida thunderstorms hit.The pool is clean and quiet and very close to the condo which was great with small children.The gated community was safe and wonderful to take walks around in the evening. Also so close to the parks we could return to the condo in about 15 minutes for afternoon naps and return to the parks at night. Russell was very helpful and willing to do anything to help make our vacation even better. There were many brochures to theme parks and local attracitons and helpfull hints for the local area.We had a great vacation and hope to come back next year!×

Very clean and well maintained
The condo was even better than the pictures portrayed. Very clean and well-maintained. I truly felt like I was staying in a "home". Russell provided excellent customer service and the personal touches were very much appreciated. The property is in an excellent location to access Disney, restaurants and just sight-seeing in general. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and we are already planning to stay here when we return in 2011.×

I stayed here with my 2 teenaged daughters and was completely pleased with everything! The house was exceptionally clean, both inside and out. It was quiet and very secure. Everything needed is supplied, from cleaning to cooking to relaxing. As an adult, I found the house was open and roomy, decorated with quality furniture and appliances. A vast assortment of DVD's as well as books and Wii are available. As a parent, it was comforting to know the location was very safe and peaceful. It was nice to know that the kids could walk around the area freely and go back and forth to the pool without me worrying about their safety. The pool was clean and large enough to play games in it. Having a gated community is also extra security. The neighbors are also very outgoing and friendly. The distance to the parks is literally minutes away. Heading back for an afternoon rest or swim can easily be accomplished. There is a supermarket is just a few miles down the road as well. There is also a vast array of tourism and restaurants just down the road for the times you don't want to grill out or cook. Russell is very accommodating in every aspect. His customer service right from the beginning is hard to come by. Certainly a person who cares about making everything perfect for your stay. We will definitely be going back annually! Thank you for the wonderful memory you've made for us this year, Russell!×

Loved Every Minute!
We had a short stay at this house and loved every minute. The location is by far the best part, just about a mile away from the entrance to Disney. It was very convenient for all the parks. All of the kitchen necessities were there for making your own food, including a BBQ, and there are a bunch of restaurants just down the road. We enjoyed using the pool and playing a few games on the Wii after visiting the parks. It is an end unit so there was no noise at all and slept very well each night. The owner provides a detailed list of all the best attractions at each park, including an action plan for when to go to each ride and how to use the fastpass system (all very useful). I highly recommend this place for your Disney vacation!×

I highly recommend this rental property. It has an excellente location near to the parks, shops, and restaurants. The house was exactly as described and we definetely enjoyed our stay. It is modern furnished, well maintained, and very clean. Our party included two little girls and they love the mickey mouse twin room and the Nintendo Wii. Russell provided a wonderful service. He helped us before and during our trip. He was extremely nice, and gave us excellent recommendations. It is a great value for the money. We are coming back!!! Thanks Russell.×

Just what we needed and wanted
We arrived in Orlando after spending two weeks on the road, and found the property to be just what we needed and wanted. The house is beautifuly furnished, clean and well maintained, well equipped with both appliances as well as daily necessities, while the overall feeling is that a great deal of thought and experience were invested in the house. Apparently, the house is ready for any type of population, babies-adults, while perfectly catering to all ages. The location is just as perfect as the house itself! It is actually minutes from the parks, which is great for both the morning and the nights! Furthermore, the property is surrounded by dozens of restaurants and shops. Russell, the property owner, provided wonderful service. He was very helpful and kind, even before we completed our transaction. Russell always immediately responded to our questions, providing us with wonderful information that was very helpful throughout the week. The feeling we got from him was that he would be there for us, if needed. All in all, as a family that has travelled extensively, this property has definately left a very good impression upon us. It is most certainly a property that we will return to, as well as highly recommend. Not only is the house itself great, it is also wonderful to work with a person such as Russell. Thank You!!!!!!!×
