“Beautiful home!!”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2016

Stood in the house for 5 night and we was a family of 11, we all fit comfortable. The house is so spacious and clean. Kids had an amazing time in the pool. It literally felt like home away from home, will definitely recommend this to family and friends. The area is very convenient, close to everythin. The owner Kenny is also so generous and responded quickly to all my questions and can't wait to stay in his home again when I go back to Orlando!

Owner's reply: Hi Monica, thanks for the comments, and so happy that you enjoyed your stay, hope to host you again in future.

My family and I will definitely plan our stay again.

“Spacious and in a convenient location.”

Reviewed 17 May 2016

My family and some friends stayed at this home on our mini vacation. It was very spacious even for the 14 of us. The area was very quiet even though there were other families all around us. We enjoyed the pool and the heated spa. You won't be sorry if you choose this home for a large group. The owner was friendly and very accommodating. Enjoy.

“The perfect family vacation”

Reviewed 30 Dec 2015

This was our families first vacation home rental and the bar was set very high for the future. The house was very spacious and located conveniently to all the theme parks, shopping, restaurants and major freeways. Our favorite part was spending time in the pool and hot tub. The hot tub and pool were both heated but at two different temperatures. Other places only offered hot tubs at the same temp as the pool which in my opinion negated the idea of a "hot tub". The owner Kenny was very helpful and attentive to my questions from day one. When we arrived we had a minor concern and emailed the property manager. She responded immediately and had the issue resolved the very next day. I can't say enough good things about this rental home. I hope we get a chance to visit there again soon.

Owner's reply: Thank you Mike for the review! It's been a great pleasure to host you and family, hope to see you again in the future. Happy New Year!

“I would recommend this vacation rental”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2015

We are a family of 4 who stayed 2 weeks and we had a great stay at the Joy in the sun Villa. The house was very clean and is exactly like in the pictures and the travel distance to Disney Parks and Universal is like what it says on the website. The pool and spa was great. The king size bed was very comfortable. It really felt like home. I would rent this property again.

“A Trip to Remember”

Reviewed 29 Apr 2015

This was by far the best vacation we could have asked for. The house was beautiful, clean and fun. There was not a crumb on the floor and all the sheets and beds were up to par. We went with 4 adults and 1 child and had plenty of room! The pool and hot tub is where we spent most of our time and we loved every minute of our time in the sun. The grill was a nice touch because we BBQ'ed 5 nights out of 7! There were fresh towels left in every bathroom when we arrived as well and the washed and dryer came in handy for us as well. Our wifi kept going in and out during the week but that was the least of our worries while enjoying the sun and Disney! Kenny was easy to deal with and always answered all my emails right away. I would 1000% stay in this house again and will be saving Kenny's info for the future!

Owner's reply: This is wonderful to hear, thank you very much and very happy that your party had a great time there. Hope to see you again in the future.

“Excellent Vacation Home”

Really enjoyed our stay at the Joy In The Sun Disney Villa. Communication from Kenny was superb from start to finish. The place is in a great location to Disney and all of their parks. Our family of four really enjoyed the space. Our two boys could run around an be loud and nobody cared. We have stayed at our share of condos and stand alone houses and I would rate this up there with any of them Great spot, thanks again Kenny!

Review Submitted: November 30, 2010 Date of Stay: November 2010
We just returned from our stay at Joy In The Sun Villa and had a wonderful time. There was lots of room and very comfortable. We had a party of 8, and everyone loved playing and relaxing by the pool and spa. It was always a joy to return to after a day out, and to be able to relax and soak in the pool and spa. The beds are comfortable. The location was great, short drive to Disney theme parks and close to restaurants and stores, there is a Walmart store down the road. The neighborhood is peaceful, and we thoroughly enjoying our stay at this villa, wish we could stay longer!


Comfortable, relax and fun!

This is a wonderful villa located in a very nice and quiet neighborhood at The Retreat of Legacy park. The villa is conveniently located close to Rt27, and a short drive to many restaurants, grocery stores and shopping malls.

Everything in the house is new and clean, which is great. During our booking process, the owner, Kenny, has been very patient and responded to our questions and requests very promptly! The pool and spa are very nice, it was very relaxed soaking in the spa after walking the whole day in the theme parks. The kids spent lots of time in the pool. We had 7 people in the villa, there was enough room and space for everyone. The kitchen is well equipped, clean and spacious. Overall our stay was very pleasant and delightful and we had a great time there; thank you so much. We will definitely recommend this to anyone and would love to come back again!
