About This Listing
I have a fully furnished (right down to extra linens, towels, pots, pans, washer/dryer) 1600 SF 3 bedroom 2 bath town house 8.5 miles from Disney World's main gate! It has all the comforts of home! Most of the time, it is empty (as I live in California); and I rent it out as a whole to vacationers.
You will enjoy free phones (even long distance is free), free wireless internet, free cable. Feel free to use the washer/dryer, full kitchen, living room with extended cable TV and a stereo system with AM/FM reception. The kids will like the fooseball table in the living room!
The Master bedroom has a new KING bed and a master bath to die for (jetted tub, separate glass shower, skylights!).... The second bedroom has two double beds, and the 3rd (Disney Room) has two twin beds. Children LOVE this room (as do the young-at-heart)!
Our complex has a large, uncrowded, pool, a kiddy pool, jacuzzi, playground, floodlit tennis courts, sand volleyball, and basket ball. The Clubhouse has a top-of-the-line fitness center, a sauna, and a deli. The area is known for it's many golf courses! The Highland Reserve is just across the street.
Minimum stay: 3 nights and the Maximum stay: 4 months.
Must pay one-time departure cleaning fee of $70 (I pay housekeeping staff this) + a refundable security/damage deposit of $100. There is a $7 per day fee for your housebroken pet (must be pre-approved by owner). $100 per month for your pet if you are staying on a monthly basis.
We are just 2 blocks down the street from a mini-mall strip with restaurants and a large Publix Supermarket.
WE ARE JUST 8 1/2 MILES FROM DISNEY WORLD'S MAIN GATE!

Interaction with Guests
There is no interaction with guests since they rent an entire town house; but my wonderful manager, Lorre, and her dog, Mr. Butters, will sometimes make an appearance once during your stay to say "hello". Mr. Butters offers free dishwashing by licking the dishes sparkling clean! LOL!
It's a quiet neighborhood close to the parks and shops! I enjoy the amenities (especially the pool) which has NEVER been crowded when I visit from California.
Check in time is after 4:00 PM...
Check out time is by 10:00 AM.
It is important that you adhere to these times in order for arrival
and departure cleaning times to be scheduled.
Please hang damp or wet towels (keeping them off the floor) to avoid mold and mildew due to Florida's humidity.
Before you leave, please be sure to place dishes in the dishwasher and start. This gives our cleaning crew time to clean the town house before the next guests arrive, and keeps residue on dishes from hardening (making the dishwasher not clean as efficiently).
You will find in the town house 2 parking passes, 6 pool wristbands and a family gym pass. There are two keys are in the main lock box on the entry door to the town house. Please BE SURE to leave all of the above on the counter after your stay. They are very expensive to replace; and replacement costs of these items will come out of your $100 security deposit if not left.
Please note: We consider pets family; but they MUST be approved and housebroken. If your pet causes stress damage when you are away, the pet must be crated when gone. The HOA charges $7 per day for each pet. This portion will be billed via PayPal personally (apart from Airbnb charges).
After payment, contact me at (email hidden); and I will send a confirmation page that will have the 4-digit-code for our gate (since we are a gated community, and a 4-digit-code for the lockbox on the town house entry door containing your key.

This was my first time using AirBnB. The owner was very nice, patient, and very responsive. She even made a last minute exception for my pet as my dog sitter was MIA at the last minute. Accommodations were adequate, especially for the price. Everything was as represented. TVs were outdated, and the one in the living room was not connected properly to cable when we arrived. Never did get it working, even with the help of the property manager. It wasn't a big deal though. The TVs in the rooms worked fine. Very good check-in/out instructions. No issues with either process. Overall, nice stay.
Nancy made us feel welcome from the start. Although we didn't meet her she sent us plenty of good information.
We had to call and speak to her once during our stay and she dealt with the issue promptly.
The house itself was clean and comfortable with everything we needed for our stay. The kids loved the football table and us adults enjoyed the Jacuzzi bath!
We made good use of the pool and leisure facilities and the house was a stones throw away from a Publix. The take out Pizza from nearby 'Mia's' is highly recommended.
It took around 20/30 mins to get to Disney and 1.30hr to drive to St Petersburg.
All in all we had a thoroughly comfortable stay. Thanks Nancy!
Very convenient location. Discription was accurate. Rooms gave us lots of room ( except small kitchen which was ok for vacation.). Carpet old and stained but clean. Beds comfortable. Good value. Pool nice, not too busy.
We were not satisfied with the quality of our rental when we arrived on 1/2/15. The condo was not clean to our standards, had loose stained carpeting, rusted discolored plumbing, broken window blinds, etc. etc. Since it was the holiday weekend we were stuck until Monday 1/5 when we were able to look for other accommodations. We moved out on Tuesday 1/6. I was told by the owner and by Air B&B that we were to receive no refund and also that we would be charged for a full 30 days from the day we left! We are out almost $2000 for 4 nights in a substandard rental with no recourse. Air BNB protects the renter without any protection for the consumer. I would not recommend using Air BNB or renting this condo.
Nancy was fantastic to work with. She is responsive and friendly and made sure we had all of the info we needed to access the condo. The condo is nice, has plenty of room (there were only 3 of us) and is so convenient to Disney and all of the other Orlando activities (bonus being you can avoid I-4!) The complex is quiet but is very close to shopping and restaurants. The only complaint I can come up with is that the sheets wouldn't stay on the bed in the master bedroom...minor inconvenience. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks Nancy!
Nuestra estadía aquí fue Excelente! Nancy es muy responsable, y lo que ves es lo que encontraras allá. La casa es muy cómoda, limpia y confortable. El vecindario es muy seguro y tranquilo. Ideal para familias con niños. Y la persona encargada allá, Lorre, es muy atenta y pendiente de todo. Las áreas publicas como la piscina y el gimnasio están muy bien, y cerquita tienes un supermercado, un restaurante y una estación de servicio. sin dudarlo, volvería a quedarme allá. Lo recomiendo 100 %.

About the Host, Nancy
I have been selling vacation weeks (and months) in my 3 town homes and studio's near Disney World (as well as 6 town homes for other owners) since 2004! I have 100% positive feed back through eBay since beginning in 2005.
I am a energetic, honest, happy and youthful grandmother of 2 wonderful grandsons! I just married in January of 2012... so my last name has recently changed to "Jones"; and now my husband (Bob) and I are the proud grandparents (mine, his, and ours) of nine grandchildren! I love them all the same!
I love to make people smile by giving them special attention! That carries over to my guests; many of who have become life-long friends after booking their lodging through me year after year (our rentals near Disney World). My motto is that if you treat people fairly and with respect, you can usually expect the same in return.
Although I live in California,I have a wonderful crew on-site in our town house complex in Florida that are available to my guests. If you want bed-and-breakfast, that also can be arranged (.. and with a smile!).
Our new listing is located in the wine country in Northern California! Check it out!
Thank you for looking; and many happy travels to you and yours!
Best of Everything...
