“Good times”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2016

I'll keep this short and simple. The house was just as expected from the pictures, and we had an amazing, unforgettable time. Would definitely do it again if I go back to Florida.

Owner's reply: This is great to hear! Thank you for your review.

“Family of 14 stay”

Reviewed 12 Feb 2016

This home is absolutely stunning and had all the amenities you could ever want. The pool was awesome and very clean. This property is super close to Disney and easy to get around! The beds were not the comfiest but not the worst either...also would have liked to be able to control the temperature a little better wouldn't allow below 74.. So some of the rooms were pretty hot. With that being said I would totally stay here again and loved all the safety features with the alarms on the doors we had 5 little ones so this was a great feature with having the pool right there!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review , new king bed mattress has now been put in , thank you for your feedback on that A/C can go down to 72, sorry you had a problem , there are ceiling fans in all rooms ???? Look forward to you coming back

“Excellent Vacation Home”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2015

The home was clean, up-to-date, and met all our expectations. The pool was fantastic. The property managers stopped in 3 times to check on the home. The property managers replaced an aging BBQ immediately upon me pointed it out to them.... a new one was in place in less than 6 hours for me to use. A great stay, a great choice.

“great house”

Reviewed 25 Feb 2015

Magical gatherings was a great house for our family. We had 8 adults and 7 children and there was plenty of room for everyone. The game room came in handy as the weather was a little cool. Tracy and her husband worked with us and even let us arrive a day earlier than planned. Great house!

Owner's reply: thank you melanie, remember to keep our information we would love you to stay again :)

“Great House for many”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2015

This house was perfect for our multi-family vacation. THE ONLY issue with the house was the heat...and I mean only. We couldn't get the air conditioning above 74 degrees. (We heat our home at 70!) and the issue was taken care of directly. The house was spacious and set up so that you were afforded privacy. We traveled with all boys and the pool and gaming equipment were a huge bonus. The manager and cleaning service ladies couldn't have been nicer. Wonderful place to utilize!! Thanks, We'd use this house again as it was very comfortable!

Owner's reply: Thank you Maureen , Looking forward to your stay again !

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Our stay at the Magical Gathering home was outstanding. This house had everything that we needed for a wonderful vacation. Each bedroom displayed its own unique personality. We appreciated the variety of DVDs, computer, TVs in each room, and games that kept our children entertained during rainy days. The pool area was ideal for cooling off during the afternoons upon returning from the theme parks.If I could change anything about this house, I would change two of the twin size beds to queen beds.

We had a wonderful stay at your home, it made our trip even more remarkable, my son turned 4 during our stay and he was able to enjoy it with his friends and family in Florida, thankyou and godbless. The west virginia crew.".
