Phil was very prompt in replying to my early check in request and it works very well for our family since we came from different places.
He made us feel welcome. It is a quiet and friendly neighbourhood
The house is excelent, clean and well kept, all the appliances were in perfect conditions and working, it had all that our family of 8 needed for comfort in between parks days. Kids loved the pool, the area is quiet and it was very common to see squirrels, brown cranes and rabbits on the de front yard.
Having a car in Orlando is essencial, and the house is very close to I-4 (the highway that takes you to Disney and downtown). There is also a big supermarket and a pharmacy nearby.
Phil, the host, didn't meet us there, but left detailed instructions to get to and in the house, and promptly answered our questions.
A big thumbs up!
