Getting around

Getting around Orlando is easier than you may think. Orlando is well equipped to accommodate lots of visitors so even at busy times of the year, the roads and car parks are not that busy to move around the city and there’s ample parking available. Taking to the highways of Orlando in a hire car offers added flexibility to your holiday. There are services from hotels to the Theme Parks. The parks run their own shuttles to get from one to another. There is also the I-Ride Trolley, which has two routes around the International Drive area covering 14 miles including Theme Parks and Orlando Premium Outlets. Day or unlimited travel tickets are available starting from a few dollars.Our recommendation is renting a car, as it is the most convenient.

“Berni's home”

Reviewed 4 Apr 2016

I was generally pleased w/ this porperty. The only issue we had was w/ the TV in the "family room" off the kitchen. It is a rear projection TV, probably 20 year old technology, and not HD. It is functional, but a more modern, larger screen HD TV would be better. Of the 6 bedrooms upstairs, only 2 had "single beds (King or Queen)," the others were twins. I'm sure this was well documented in the listing, but we must have missed that info....no fault of the owner at all. The owner was extremely helpful in every detail, and she was the only owner willing to rent mid-week to mid week, the primary reason we chose her property. In closing, the overall experience was extremely positive, and I wouldn't hesitate to rent from her in the future, or to recommend her to other prospective renters. Thanks, Jim Innes

We rented this home, party of 12, 8 adults and kids from 4 to 13 and we all enjoyed the stay! It's near all the parks, attractions and shopping. Beautiful place, clean and green surroundings. Wish we had more time! We'll be back.

This house is what I expected, depite a few hiccups with the jacuzzi. Just one phone call and it was taken care of. Also I felt very secure being in this gated community. I would recomend this vacation home to anyone.

“Fantastic Experience”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2012

The website provided all the information we needed and the pictures were exactly what we experienced. A spacious, luxurious, well kept vacation home minutes from restaurants, shopping, and famous attractions. It was perfect for my family and the home-like atmosphere made our trip more relaxing. The private pool was a great addition, access at all hours was ideal after a long day at the park. We will rent again next year! Great experience!!!!!

Owner's reply: Thank you again for staying with us. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your vacation! Hope to see you back soon!
