House is very well maintained, pool area is beautiful and relaxing gets sun all day long! I would recommend to anyone to stay here. 3 bedrooms with lots of room, and two baths one of which is an ensuite. Air conditioning was perfect keeping the house cool. The only thing I wish we had was a welcome sheet telling us the wifi password and where to find things or what to do with the trash such as when garbage day was or what to do when we left the house. The customer service was excellent we called about the wifi and they were great. I would definitely stay here again, beautiful neighbourhood, very private and safe!

Our stay at The Sanctuary/PP1887
We had a wonderful vacation. This home was a second choice since our original choice was sold by the owners. We enjoyed making breakfast and some evening meals in the kitchen, which saved us some vacation $$ to spend on other things. Multiple bathrooms was great since we had 3 families (my daughter and her husband and children; my son and his wife). I'm not sure if anything can be done about our complaints, but I will give them in hopes they can be corrected. The two "queen" beds were more like full beds and they were miserable to sleep in. My husband slept on the couch because the bed was so uncomfortable for two people. The king bed was somewhat better and the twins were in good condition. We would not stay at this house again due to the sleep issues. I dislike giving this report, because the house and pool was overall very nice. Minor issues - the pool table was not level and there were no foosballs. So, those games were not usable. This was not major for us, but some families might want to use them. I believe the bedding could be fixed relatively inexpensively for the owner, which would make the house nearly perfect. The drive to Disney was very easy, so this was awesome! Please forgive the complaints, but sleeping well on vacation is kind of important. Thank you for your assistance toward our vacation stay - I would do business with you again in a heartbeat.

The property is well positioned for Disney trips
We enjoyed our time in this home. It was handy for trips to Disney. The home is well equipped and was clean. The furniture is adequate, beds are over due for matress replacing. The glass tables make me nervous and always look dirty but that is just my own personal input. The ac system could use some attention before the hot weather comes to Fla. Ceiling fans would help in the bedrooms. The airfilter is quite dirty and seems to have missed the last service. Overall, I would reccomend this home to others.

We shared this 5 bedroom home with another family. There was lots of space for 4 adults and 4 kids. The home was clean and well maintained. We did have to call the property manager with a question and the staff were friendly and helpful. The pool and spa were well maintained and the house was well appointed with lots of towels, linens and kitchenware. We found Championsgate beautiful and the clubhouse was amazing. The location worked well for our families as it was near groceries, restaurants and other amenities. We visited Legoland, Seaworld, Universal, and Disney and all were within 30 minutes from the home. Our family would highly recommend this property,Thanks to Orlando4Villas for a wonderful service"

Love the Star Wars themed Games Room
Spotless and spacious property with really comfy sofas. Loved the star wars games room, particularly the arcade machine, for a converted garage it was well done. Also really liked the fact the pool has a fence/is shielded all the way around so you can't see your neighbours. The lazy river and splash zone for the kids at the facilities was great and management company were very friendly and helpful. Restaurant wise, our fave was Outback. We would definitely stay here again!

Pretty house, convenient location!
We enjoyed our stay. The house was clean, spacious, and the kids had a great time in the pool. We do have a few complaints/suggestions to make so in the future the time is enjoyable for the next guests. We have stayed at a lot of properties through our travels, and I can honestly say I was most surprised at the severe amount of rules that were imposed. I understand that when you are renting, rules are required, however, I think some of these were ridiculous. 1. When we arrived, there were no starter items, for example, no dish soap, no glass cleaner(and all the tables were glass) no trash bags, no extra rolls of toilet paper, etc. This is the only time we have ever experienced this. Very odd. 2. There was an alarm that goes out to the pool that was super annoying, and cannot be turned off or disabled. I understand the need for safety, but when you have teenagers and adults only staying at the house, you should be able to disarm it. 3. We were excited at the fact that there was a pool and hot tub, however, the pool was warmer than the hot tub. I called the maintenance person/caretaker to ask if there was something wrong with the hot tub and he told me he would call me right back to let me know. It took a whole day and a half to hear back from him. Apparently, you need to pay EXTRA for the hot tub to be HOT ($25/per day) which is totally absurd. 4. You can't adjust the thermostat and it was very warm in the house, especially the upstairs. 5. And last but not least, (this was my favorite) while on vacation, you are required to strip all the linens AND wash them before you leave. Seriously? I'm on vacation, and if you pay to have your house in a rental program and people come through and clean it, why do your guests, who have paid to come and stay, have to do the laundry?? Makes no sense. Even though the house was pretty, pool was nice, etc., I will not return to any of the properties in this community with all of these rules. They were a bit overkill and it would have been nice to know everything in advance instead of after we arrived.
