My family loved our house! It looked exactly like the pictures did online. We initially didn’t opt to pay extra for the heated pool, but once we arrived we realized it was a much needed luxury (we stayed in March..nights were still pretty cool). Unfortunately it took them a few days to turn the heat on, but other than that our stay was perfect! From this point on we will NEVER stay in a hotel when visiting that part of Florida! THEY NEED TO HAVE MORE PROPERTY LOCATIONS ACROSS THE U.S.!!!

Fantastic! We have been to the orlando area more times than we can recall. We have stayed in just about every kind of accommodation imaginable. This home is the nicest place we have stayed. Great price. Owners were very accommodating. Quiet area. Nicely appointed home. Will do it again for sure!

This house is beautiful, it is just like the pictures. Everything was perfect, we did not want to leave. Our family will use one of the houses again. The community was nice, the pool and tub felt great to relax in, and this property is very close to shoopping, eating, and all of the parks you could want to visit. You need to try it.

This house was beautiful! It was spacious, clean, comfortable and very functional. The photos posted match the property exactly. I enjoyed knowing what I was renting and being so close to Disney. The property was easy to locate with the instructions given and it was easy to get in touch with the owners if something did come up. I would definitly recommend vacation by the mouse to anyone and will use them again in the future. Thank you so much for making our vacation excellent.

March 19, 2010 We just spent a wonderful vacation in one of the 4 bedroom condos on Cane Island. It was exactly as it appeared in all the photos. The heated pool was and whirlpool spa were just what we needed after visiting Universal Studios (which is located about 15- 20 min away.) The whole family enjoyed it so much that we are already talking about coming back next year! We couldn't imagine staying any place else. The only complaint I had and it is very minor, is that the master shower had no place to put our shampoo and conditioner. This meant a lot of bending because we had to leave it on the floor of the shower. It was no problem for us, but might be a problem for some people. Also, I would advise anyone who wished to spend some time at the pool to plan to arrive early. The lounge chairs are taken quickly since there are a limited amount. All in all this was a terrific value. Anyone who chooses to stay there will enjoy themselves!!!

First time renting a home and will never go back to a hotel, it was just great. Shane and Heather were excellent to communicate with, very helpful in picking the right location and home. Cannot wait to rent again next March Break. I strongly recommend renting any of the homes they offer, very proffesional. Thank-you again. Terry

Last year we visited another couple and just loved the arrangements. Because we liked it so well we came back this year and rented our own unit Once again it full filled our desire. Having the pool in the sun for half the day and shade in the other half was a bonus. The appliances were excellent quality and the garage satisfied me to no end. The unit was clean and well laid out.Of course for two people it was overkill but the rate was good. Providing we can make it, I would return next year and try for the same unit. Thanks Shane & Heather Yours truly Dave & Gail

My husband and our two boys stayed at Cane Island in a 4 bedroom condo. The accomodations were great and the price was right. It was about 10 minutes away from the Disney parks. Location was great! This is the second time we have used Vacation By the Mouse and will not go with anyone else, they have the best houses, condo's and rates around.

My family of 6 stayed in a 4BR at Cane Island last August. Having never dealt with this outfit before and only discovered them on the web, I did a little background checking before I booked with them. I needn't have worried. They are strictly on the up-and-up. The condo was tremdendous value for the money. Spacious, beautifully-appointed, kitchen and baths had granite countertops. Each BR and the LR had flat screen TVs, cable, free wifi, and more. Dropped a ton of money feeding Mickey, but saved a ton of money staying here. It's only 15 minutes to the Disney parks. (Get a parking pass from your local AAA and you can park up front). I will never visit Orlando any other way again! The only (and I mean only) glitch the whole week was that the key code we had been e-mailed did not work upon our arrival. We called the number we had been given, and the problem was rectified within five minutes! A lot less hassle than if we had had to find their offices and pick up the key in person!

Our stay at Cane Island was great! The condo just as nice as the photos on the website and even roomier than it looked! The staff at Cane Island were kind and helpful. Shane and Heather have been superb, answering all my questions and meeting every requirement for our perfect Disney stay! The Cane Island location was great for Disney and other Orlando attractions. I would highly recommend Vacation by the Mouse as well as Cane Island for Orlando vacation needs.

My family and I, stayed in the Windsor Hills community and enjoyed another great vacation with the help of Shane and Heather. This is the 7th home/condo I have rented from them over the years, and all I can say is when we entered this home, the WOW factor was still there. Thanks once again.

We rented with Vacation by the Mouse for the second year in a row in May of this year. Again, the house was clean and beautiful, and the location couldn't have been better. It was close to the parks and all amenities. Shane and Heather were great. I must have sent them a million emails prior to our trip, but they were always prompt with their responses and happy to help. We are already looking forward to booking our next trip with them for next year!

After spending several nights at the Bella Piazza, our family can not say enough. The condo was very large and seemed very new. It had all the latest bells and whistles and was beautiful. My husband and I brought our 4 year old and 2 year old and they had a blast in the children's pool! We also liked the fact that we were 5 minutes from everything, but yet felt a little out of the way of the traffic. Thank you Shane and Heather, we will definitely stay at your condo again!

Best place I have stayed at Disney. Disney was minutes away. The house was fantastic! The only negative this is a minor one I wish we could have had ceiling fans in the bedrooms. I would Highly recommend vacation by the mouse to anyone!!! We had 8 adults and 4 children at the house we all had plenty of own space. Thanks again Shane and Heather for making this one of our best disney vacations!!!

We want to thank Heather and Shane for all their help. We stayed at 7767 Tosteth home and it was more than we could ever have expected. Stunning home!! We spent so much money on the Disney World passes and all the kids wanted to do is go back to the home and swim in the pool. This was our families first offical vacation and it couldn\\\'t have gone better. Awesome!!!!!!

Our extedned family of 10 went to Disney World in June and we were thrilled with the house we rented from you last month. The house more than met our expectations, it was immaculate and there was plenty of room for our large group. The drive to Walt Disney World was a breeze each day and it was great to get away from the crowds and noise of Disney at the end of the day. Our four grandchildren loved having the pool. I have already given your Web site address to several friends. Thanks for a wonderful time.

This was a great property, we had ana awseom time in the pool and there was plenty of wildlife that would come right up to the screened in pool area. I really enjoyed all the great home amenities like 4 bathrms and all the TV\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s in every room. We were only 20 minutes from Disney and with 7 kids that really worked well. Thanks again Shane & Heather were so helpfull before and after we checked in. which really made it feel like home away from home. Thanks guys great job, and i will definately be passing your site on to everyone I come into contact with.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Cane Island property. The 4-bedroom condo was great and as advertised on the website. The unit matched the pictures on the website!! It was beautiful, well-furnished, clean, and very comfortable. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub everyday. The property is very convenient for Disney & Sea World and for nearby restaurants and other needs (like a grocery store and Starbucks). I thought it was a good value vs. other rentals. Shane & Heather are also really accommodating and flexible -- the unit we had rented had its A/C go out at the last minute and they upgraded us to a nice unit with working A/C (required for summer stays!). Also, check-in process was so convenient with the lockbox and phone access to Maribel was helpful as well. Do read the fine print and expect to purchase some day-to-day supplies if you stay more than a day or two. All in all, we highly recommend Cane Island and Vacation by the Mouse.

We really enjoyed our stay at the house on Windsong. The house exceeded our expectations and the kids loved the pool. We were only about 20 minutes from Disney. We will stay there again when we go back to disney. We just stayed at a house in Savannah, GA and didn\'t offer half the amenties that this home had. I highly recommend this home.

My 2 girls and I, along with a friend and her grandson really enjoyed our stay. Both of our husbands are deployed in Afghanistan, and although we missed our husbands, we had a wonderful time. We would both recommend Vaction By The Mouse to our frineds and families. It was great to have a house large enough for all of us at a price that hotels cannot compete with. Great time, the pool was a hit after a long day at the theme parks. You will have our business again!

Walking distance to lots of restuarants, store and gift shops and about 10-15 minutes from disney park. This is a MUST Stay resort!

We just returned from our Disney vacation and stayed at one of the Windsor Hills homes...It was great! The house exceeded our expectations. We were also a large group and I didn't know if I would find the house big enough but it was perfect. We went last year and stayed at a Disney Resort and this was much, much better. The kids loved the pool and we were more relaxed. Highly recommend.

We just returned from our stay at your home in Sandy Ridge. We really enjoyed staying in this beautiful home. It is so nice after a tiring day in the parks to come home to a home instead of a hotel room. The pool is awesome and it is great to be able to just walk right out onto the patio instead of trudging from your hotel room to the pool area at a hotel. This is the second property owned by Vacation by the Mouse that we have stayed at and they are all great. We wouldn't do it any other way.

Tuesday, April 14, 2009 Wilson and Lilly Vazquez Cane Island is absolutely beautiful. We had a great time. I would defiantly recommend Vacation by the Mouse. Everything went very smooth from the start of my reservation to the very end. Shane and Heather were great and always responded to my emails quickly. We had a little confusion when we arrived with the correct building # and condo, but we called Maribel and she answered quickly and cleared everything up for us. Vacation by the Mouse is the way to go! Thanks guys….

Vacation By The Mouse is the only way to go! Our house at Solana was amazing. Everything was so beautifully set up. From the time that I made the reservation right through to the end - everything went so smoothly. It was so nice to come home after a long day at the parks and plunge into our very own pool away from the crowds and the noise. The Clubhouse at the Solana resort is first class also with their huge pool, super friendly and helpful concierge and all the activities for the kids. We had a terrific time and will most certainly be back.

We stayed at Cane Island in Orlando. It was quiet and everything that we had hoped for. We had a litttle confusion with a key code on arrival, however they were only a phone call away and made sure we got into the unit. Renting Condos on the east coast is a little different than in my area. We provide things like extra TP, Paper Towels and dishwashing soap. They do not - not a big deal we just picked some up when we went to the market. Overall I would HIGHLY recommend using Shane and Heather!!! The pool at Cane Island is great and we were thrilled that it was salt water. Jeff and Linda

We just returned from a weeks vacation at Cane Island. The 4 bedroom condo was wonderful! The condo was exactly as described in the listing and photos. My husband and I traveled with our two children, my parents and my brother. We had plenty of space for our group of 7. The location was very convenient to all of the Disney Parks, as well as numerous restaurants and grocery stores. The pool area was also very nice. We usually stay onsite at the Disney Hotels, but we now prefer the amenities at Cane Island. We hope to be back soon! Thank you for your part in making a magical vacation for our family!

We stayed at one of the 3 bedroom Cane Island Condos and everything was perfect. The condo was in excellent condition and was close to restaurants, drugstores, and grocery stores. We only visited the pool once due to staying at the parks late but the pool was heated and very clean. I would definitely recommend these condos to anyone but especially to a family like ours because it was so nice at the end of a busy day for the kids to have their own separate rooms to relax to. We received excellent customer service from Vacation by the Mouse and couldn't have been happier with our experience.

Our Family stayed at Cane Isalnd for the 1st time, and it was great! The place was beautiful and other guests were nice too! Had our 1st trip over to Disney which made this stay even more memorable...even though we did show up a day early; guess we were just sooo excited! The local Super-store was less than 2 miles down the road and was great to deal with. We were able to make wonderful meals at the condo by preparing ahead of time... I guess the only thing I would recommend is if you are going to cook; get some baking dishes. They did provide two pizza pans and a casserole dish, but was not so useful to make a big dinner for 8.... Over all, we had a great time and I, along with my family thank Shane and Heather for working their magic and getting us into a 4BR at the last minute and for answering my rediculous questions.... We will be in touch with you soon, either here at the Mouse or vacationbythebeach.com Again, thank you!!

We rented a condo at the Cane Island property in Feb 09. The 4 bedroom condo was outstanding - clean, spacious,well equipped (dishwasher/washer/dryer/Broadband internet) and beautifully furnished. Heated pool, Jacuzzi, workout room and play room (pool, fussball) in the common area kept the kids busy when we weren't at the parks. Location is excellent- about a 20 min drive to the parking at Disney - count on an additional 20-30 mins to actually get into the park. Lots of restaurants, drugstores, grocery stores, even a Target within a mile of the condo. Shane and Heather are very responsive and helpful in answering questions prior to the trip. Also the local emergency contact (Maribel) was always available to answer questions, though we didn't run into any emergency type situations. A word of advice: Bring or be prepared to shop for these essentials - soap, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels. We highly recommend this location and would most certainly return for our next visit to Orlando.

Shane and Heather took over management of our property in Woodwind Bay during 2008. When we were over for a family holiday at Christmas we were delighted with the villa. The management team have looked after our property extremely well. The level of care and service we received was exceptional. We all had a great holiday and had peace of mind that we were leaving it in good hands. The rentals have been steady and much appreciated. We had to squeeze ourselves in for another visit in March. Roll on March it can't come quick enough.

Jan 2009: We stayed in one of the 3 bedroom condos in Cane Island in Orlando and loved it. We arrived very late at night, so having a code for the door and not having to check in (or out) was a major plus. The room was very clean and nicely appointed. It was spacious and allowed our kids and us plenty of room. The condos are located about 6 miles fm Disney and about 20 mins from Universal (where we spent most of our time). We would definately stay there again and strongly recommend this location to everyone!

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Orlando. The house we selected far exceeded our expectations. This was a Christmas present for our three children and their families. The six bedrooms gave everyone their own private space to retreat to after lengthy days at Disney. The location was exceptional as well. We were within 2 miles of all the Disney properties. Our whole family will recommend Vacation by the Mouse as the only way to stay in Orlando. Our children are already planning for a return visit in 2010!

We spent two weeks over Christmas at the Solana resort. The house was beautifully decorated, clean, and we all had so much space. With three families staying under one roof, it was wonderful for everyone to have their own bathroom. The kids loved the heated pool and game room. The traffic was crazy and the parks were jampacked over Christmas, so it was lovely to stay in the much quieter Davenport area. We were just minutes away from Animal Kingdom and no more than 20 minutes away from any other park. Shane and Heather quickly rectified a glitch with our first reservation and we will look to stay with them again if we are in an area where they have homes. Thanks for a wonderful vacation.

This experience was fantastic. The houses we used was immaculant and very very clean. What a freat area. Easy access to everything. Would we do it again? In a heart beat! We even had trouble with our pool heater that we would not have known about and they are working nicely with us. We would even consider buying in this area. It was a great experience and the only way to fly.

Our family of 7 adults, 5 children, spent Christmas week at Windsor Hills. The house was wonderful---clean, spacious,well equipped, beautifully furnished and very private and quiet. The heated pool and spa were a blessing. As promised, the home was so close to Disney parks and I think it took less time to get to the parks than if we had stayed on-site. We spent all day each of 5 days at the Disney parks and it was a PLEASURE to come home to relax and jump in the nice warm pool and soak. The game room was an added bonus that all the kids loved. Wireless connection for all the laptops helped everyone stay connected with home and gain information for where we were, also. The only thing we disliked about the home was ---having to leave!!

Heather and Shane: I would like to tell you that staying at your 403 Sandy Ridge property is an unforgettable experience. The house is very clean, well decorated and gorgeous. My two boys loved your house so much that they actually would trade staying in the house for going to Disney world. In fact, we got home early from Disney World because they missed the swiming pool too much. The house is close to Disney World and other attraction. I received great customer service from Heather. Thank you very much for the wonderful experience. Sherry

We stayed at 131 Sandy Ridge and can't wait to go back. The owners were a dream to work with and everything that they had promised us was true. They provided us with accurate directions, maps to all the attraction, proper key codes and phone numbers. When we arrived at the house we found it very inviting and felt like home. The table was set beautifully and the beds had swans made from the towels. We commend the owners and the Vacation By The Mouse management co. as it was the BEST vacation yet!!!

When we arrived, we felt instantly at home, welcomed and comfortable since the home was spacious, very clean and the tables beautifully set. We came with grandparents, a 7 month old infant and a 9 year old daughter, and found the the house provided activities and space for all. It's beautifully furnished, and both master bedrooms are spacious with walk-in closets and full ensuite bathrooms. My son could nap, while my daughter swam in the pool, while we made supper and others relaxed in the living room. Both my dad and my husband had their laptops along, and the highspeed wireless internet worked easily (which was great since my dad could keep in email contact with work, and since we had used an online site for advice about touring Disney). The owners were very friendly and easy to work with.

I am writing this to say thank you to Shane for ALL of his help with our recent trip to Disney. As we planned our trip, we looked at the vbtm properties and even called and spoke to Shane. However, we came across another property that looked wonderful online and decided to book that home. Unfortunately when we arrived at this home, it was a complete disaster. The house was listed as brand new, 10 min from Disney. However, it was far from new. The carpets, furniture, linens, etc. were terribly stained and disgusting. The house smelled horrible and was dirty. One room was completely unusable due to the hundreds of bugs scattered all over. This house was NOT in the condition that the website claimed. And the 10 minutes they claimed to be from Disney was more like a 25-30 min drive. I was literally in tears upon entering this house. This was our first trip to Disney and we had been looking forward to it for several years. I knew there was NO way we could stay in this filthy house. After a heated call to the owner of the house and literally hours of debating with her, she agreed to refund our money and let us out of our contract. But where were we going to stay last minute?? It was Saturday evening. We woke up at 3 am to catch a 6 o clock flight. Our 3 kids were exhausted. I was completely drained from the day. But I remembered vacation by the mouse and called Shane to see if by any chance he had something we could stay in. He answered his phone while at dinner and was so pleasant and sympathetic to our situation. He had availabilty at the Cane Condo\'s and got everything arranged for us. We arrived there late and were absolutely thrilled with the condition of the condo! Brand new, perfectly clean, granite, smelled GREAT..I could go on and on! The beds were so comfortable. We rented a 4 bedroom. We had three adults and 3 kids...plenty of space for the 6 of us. Conveniently located to grocery stores, pharmacy (which we needed w a sick child), coffee places, target, etc. It was a short drive to the Disney parks as well. This was our dream vacation to Disney. We stayed 9 days. When you come home from the parks, you\'re tired and ready to relax. Coming back to these beautiful condo\'s was a perfect way to end the day. Our kids even enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi. I know this is a super long review, but I just cannot thank Shane enough for helping us out of a desperate situation. I want to tell anyone renting a vacation home to be very careful with whom you rent from in Orlando. You cannot go wrong renting from vcation by the mouse. Thanks again Shane! We will be in contact with you again!!

This was our 4th time staying at a Vacation by the mouse home and as usual the experience was incredible. We had 16605 High Grove and although it was only a 4 bedroom, the house was plenty big enough to handle 5 Adults and 2 teenagers. As always the house was very clean, close to everything and perfect for our needs. We were even plesantly surprised when we got home from the parks and found the property manager had been in to install a new TV service as well as high speed internet! Overall a great experience and I will definitely be renting again in 2010 for our next family trip.

It was nice not to all be crammed into a hotel room after spending all day together and for 8 days at that. Having the convenience of cooking our own meals saved us a lot of money. The store was just a few minutes a way. It was very easy to get to Disney. The highway was very accessible from the house. It was nice to come home"" and relax after being at the parks all day. We didn't have a DVD in the room like it said so I called Shane and he called me back within 45min. (while he was on vacation) and apologized and had a DVD/VCR player in our house within 48 hours!

We (two families) stayed in High Grove in mid October 2004 and the home was everything that is was described as being and more. The home was clean and well cared for, we felt right at home. Because their were two families on this vacation it really worked out nice giving everyone their space and privacy while at the house. (that is important when traveling with another family) The community was quiet & safe and a short drive to attractions as well as a local food market just down the road. Shane & Heather were very attentive to my questions leading up to the trip (with the hurricanes, check-in, and anything else we needed to know) and I did not have a need to call while we were at the house since everything went fine. We have been to Florida many times and this was our first time renting a home, we will be doing it again. Thanks Shane & Heather looking forward to future dealings. P.S. If you plan to aquire any homes in the Daytona area let us know....were thinking of checking out that area next time.

The week before Thanksgiving my husband and I rented a 5 bedroom home from Shane. My son and his family who live in Illinois joined us. I can't tell you what a wonderful experience we had staying in a home rather then a hotel. My grandsons are 8 and 9 and the highlight for them was the play station and the enclosed swimming pool. After a full day out at the parks it was great to come home to a spacious clean and comfortable home. I would highly recommend Vacation by the Mouse to anyone interested in lodging facilities in the Orlando area.

This was our second time staying with you and both times were very pleasant. Last year we had a three bedroom house (four adults and two children) and this year we had a four bedroom (five adults and three children). We had planned on a motel because I couldn't book in advance but by a week because the whole trip depended upon the health of my mother. This was also our first trip with our very active two year old granddaughter and we were not looking forward to being cooped up in a motel room with her plus we would have needed three rooms. We almost cancelled but I gave it a try and put in the reservation just six days before leaving and you got back with me that day and a confirmed the reservation for us. There was ample room for the little one to run around and play and not be in everyone's way. Having our own private pool gave us the luxury of swimming at our own times also the privacy for my 79 year old mother to swim. She loves to swim but will not wear a suit in front of strangers. We all were able to stay together and had a blast because of it. This may be the last family trip we might be able to make together because of my mother's health but it was one we all will remember. We have told all our friends, family and church members. Some have even asked for your website. I am very sure they will enjoy the stay.

What wonderful accommodations! We could not believe what we rented. It was just the best! Immaculately clean, with all the comforts of home, nicely manicured landscaping, and very nice neighbors! We reserved the property for October, and due to my father in-law having a heart attack, and having a pace maker implanted in him, we had to cancel our vacation. I called Shane and he was very understanding on this matter. Shane promptly rescheduled our dates for September so my father in-law could travel and enjoy this vacation with the family. ( by the way he is 86 years young. ) Then Hurricane Florence comes along, and puts the damper on our vacation, and once again good old Shane comes through for us, and reschedules our vacation. We finally made it, and we had the time of our lives. We had thanks to all our Floridian friends, and of course, Shane, and Vacation by the Mouse. Any one that is considering renting a property for your next vacation, PLEASE don't waste your time looking around, as this is the best! just get in touch with Shane. You won't regret it.

Thanks and look forward to staying there again soon. I referred everyone of Sterling National Bank where I work in New York and told them how much fun and how excellent it all was and they too are going to try it out soon. Thanks again have a great day! Joe Mallozzi

Thanks for providing a wonderful rental. The house and pool were as promised and close to Disney. We had more than enough room, two extra rooms, in fact. Tastefully decorated, clean--could not have been more pleased. In fact, our granddaughters were eager to leave the parks to get back to our house"" each day. Have told friends about the rental"," recommending it highly."

We stayed at 102 High Grove for 9 days in June. We absolutely loved it! The home was extremely clean. Our kids loved the pool, especially after the hot days at Disney! The service was outstanding! Our 12 year old son wanted to use the Playstation and discovered the controller was missing. I called the property manager and within hours, he brought a brand new controller to the home. Heather and Shane were wonderful to work with when booking the home. The only problems we had stemmed from our flight being delayed 8 hours so we arrived at the home when it was getting dark. We had a little problem finding the entrance due to road construction, and when we got into the home, we set off the pool alarm because someone tried to open the patio door without pressing the alarm button. After we knew where we were going and got used to the pool alarm, everything went smoothly. It only took us about 10 minutes to get to the Disney Parks and there was a Super Wal-Mart about 5 minutes from the home. The next time we visit Disney, we will definitely stay there again!

It is just like a home away from home. We already have plans of returning next year. Thanks for the wonderful place to stay.

Two weeks ago myself and a large family group stayed at the new property at 7825 Windsor Hills for a week. It was so much nicer than we anticipated! The property is sooo close to Disney. We enjoyed the pool area and the gameroom. How great to be able to see the fireworks from Disney and Epcot from the patio! Thanks Shane and Heather. This is the second time we booked with Vacation By The Mouse, and it won't be the last!

Our family recently stayed in one of your new homes in Windsor Hills. It was absolutely wonderful. the house was beatiful. the resort community was perfect for us and our small children. we could walk to the pool, about 10 minutes away. the pool at the house and lanai was very nice for relaxing. although i would definitely pay to have the pool heated next time. i would highly recommend this service and the property. being a brand new house, there were a couple of things that needed to be adjustedlike the cable and it was taken care of immediately. what an excellent vacation.

The house we stayed in was absolutely beautiful.Not only was it very spacious, but also clean, comfortable and the pool was a great asset. My teenaged children aged 14 and 17 were quite happy with the game room and especially the Clubhouse where they could use the internet to keep in contact with their friends. The location was also a bonus as we were only 5 minutes to Wal Mart and close to all attractions. I would highly recommend these vacation homes for your next vacation. THANK YOU

Myself and 11 other family members just completed a stay with VBTM at 131 Sandy Ridge. The house was wonderful. We had never rented a vacation home before and was not sure what to expect. To say the least, the entire experience was far better than we ever expected. The house was just as pictured and only about 10 minutes from Disney. Even with a large group of 12, everyone had there own private space. The whole process was simple. Can't wait to do it again.

We have just returned from our family vacation at your 2619 Emerald Isle property, this house far exceeded my expectations. The home was extremely beautiful. It was well decorated, clean, and made for a wonderful vacation. The Emerald Island development is a beautiful well maintained gated property. The location is great, you don't even have to go out on a main highway to get to the markets or restaurants and only a few minutes from the parks should you choose to ever leave the property. > I strongly recommend using Vacation by the Mouse for your vacation home. We have rented at a couple of other homes before finding Vacation By The Mouse, so I can compare and never have we been more satisfied with a property. This house was everything it was described as and more. Thanks Shane and Heather for all your professionalism and we will not hesitate to rent with or recommend you in the future.

You provided a great service to us and we thank you and hopefully some of our other relatives will be renting from you soon also.

If anyone has doubts, don\'t! Definitely rent from Vacation by the Mouse. We rented a home from you for a week at 309 HighGate Park and were extremely pleased with the home.It was a beautiful home and was nicely landscaped. One thing that we noticed was your home had extra landscaping around the pool area, where many in the neighborhood did not, which was a nice touch when you were on the lanai or in the pool. There was only my husband and I and our son, so the 4 bedrooms, 3 baths were far more than we needed, but the value was outstanding. It was a much needed college quarter break for our son, and spending time in your home was the relaxation that he needed to rejuvinate him. We will definitely rent from you again. We've already recommended your company to friends of ours and they immediately rented a home in High Grove for their October visit. The furnishings were very nice and the house had all of the extras that one could ask for. My only observation would be for the guest manual to be placed on the bar counter in the kitchen, in order to be more noticeable. I wasn't aware of the form that needed to be filled out with the guest's names and could have easily missed it.

We had a stay in 2006 and I am getting ready to book again and realized I never did my review. This was our 3rd year using vacation by the mouse for our family vacation. We have always had excellent service from Shane and Heather. The home was extremely beautiful. It was well decorated, clean, and made for a wonderful vacation. We have a large family and this is a much better value than a hotel. The children had a wonderful time in the pool and game room. They did not even want to go to the parks this year. We love having a full kitchen so that we can prepare our own meals. I strongly recommend using Vacation by the Mouse for your vacation home. You will not find a better value for the price. They have far exceeded my expectations. If anyone has any questions feel free to email me... I am getting ready to use Shane and Heather for our 4th year in a row and could not be more happy with the service they have provided.

Our family had rented 419 High Grove and could not have made a better choice. The house was absolutely immaculate as were the surrounding grounds. Upon arrival we noticed the pool was quite cool and contacted Shane who immediately dispatched a represenative within a half hour (who may I add was very proffesional and kind)! Problem solved. I especially liked the gated entrance accessable only by code, very safe. The best thing is the fact that the houses are accessable by code, so your not at the mercy of someone in an office for keys to the home. The development has a clubhouse with games, internet and a pool, but with such a complete home, we had no use for it. The only knock on the development at this time, is all the construction going on makes getting in and out of the neighbourhood a bit tricky but I am sure it will be a lot better once all the work is complete. Thanks Shane and Heather for all your professionalism and would not hesitate to rent with or reccomend you in the future. The Scarola Family.

What a pleasant surprise it was for us when the six of us arrived for our vacation to Disney at your complex. It included everything; so you could make yourself right at home. The cleanliness of it was an added bonus; because lots of times when booking on line, your expectations are definitely not met. The added games room, extra T.V.'s and heated pool were things that the children (ages 12 & 7) thoroughly enjoyed after a long day at Disney; and the adults also had their own space to enjoy. We would highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for four bedroom accommodations. Our vacation stay was made more memorable because of it. Thanks for the memories.

This was our second stay with Vacation by the Mouse, we were pleased both times. We have recommended VBM to several friends. I had to call Heather regarding a couple minor issues this last trip and within a day both issues had been taken care of. I was VERY impressed. The one and only suggestion I would have is to supply a couple of nightlights for your homes. It is so relaxing to go 'home' after a long day at the parks. The kids can swim or go off to their own bedrooms and 'veg out'. We will certainly use VBTM again if we travel to Florida.

WOW!! One word really sums it all up for us. Heather and Shane, thank you for making this our best family vacation to date! We were a little hesitant at first to stay off-property"" but quickly found out that this is really the best way to do it. We are a family of 5 and the thought of being couped up in a hotel room or one room suite for 8 days did not sit well with us. So we started looking at homes to rent.",,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, We came across Vacation By the Mouse while looking at other so-called larger property rental companies and immediately knew that we wanted to deal with a business like Heather & Shane's. From the first inquiry to the day we left, we felt like we were their number one priority. Other companies should follow their lead - this is the way to run a small business!!,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, The home was outstanding, we stayed at 214 Sandy Ridge. My wife and I, our 3 kids and my mother-in-law enjoyed the spacious home and the ability to prepare our own meals (saving a few dollars). We never once had that feeling we often get in a cramped hotel room. It was very comfortable and convenient to supermarkets and restaurants. The kids especially loved the pool and like many other guest reviews before us, they would have stayed at the house all day instead of going to the parks!,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Being only 10-15 minutes from the main gate allowed us to go to the parks early," come back for lunch and recharge our batteries for the evening. This is great when you have young kids who can hit that proverbial ""wall"" on the third or fourth day in the parks.",,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, All that being said, the only thing I really need to say is that when we go back, this is the only place I would stay!,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, "The Kellers"

Outstanding doesn't even begin to describe it. The pool made our trip less expensive than we had hoped because the kids never wanted to leave the house!!! The home was beautiful. The neighborhood (Sandy Ridge) was great, it had wooded areas just like home!! If we ever need to rent a home again in either the panhandle area or Orlando we WILL use Shane! Service.....top-notch! P.S. The air went out of our originally rented home the day we were planning on leaving, we were notified and arraingements were worked out for another, even larger, home.

This was our first real family vacation out of state. We were both excited and anxious to take our family to Walt Disney World...we knew that we did not want to stay at a hotel with the noise and and cost and luckily we stumbled across Shane's properties. We could not have been more pleasantly suprised at 214 Sandy Lane. The kids had a blast in the private heated pool and we relaxed - just as we had hoped that we could on our vacation. We were minutes from Disney and Epcot and were able to see fireworks on our way home from Disney. The kids actually wanted to stay more at the home than any place else!!

We were just planning our 3rd trip to Orlando in the last 4 years and I realized I hadn\'t taken the time to write a review on my last trip (November 2005) so here it is. This was our second time dealing with Shane and his family and we were even more pleased than the first time (if that was possisble). We decided to stay at 16648 High Grove this time after using Simba's Retreat in 2003 and we were thrilled with the property. It was very clean and had all the comforts of home. We had a small problem with the pool pump, which was fixed in literally 15 minutes with one phone call to the local service people.... talk about exceptional service!!! Overall this was again a great experience and we are looking to rent from Shane yet again for a trip in early 2007.

We have rented vacation properties from Vacations By the Mouse for two years (May 04 and May 05). Both weeks were during the Memorial Day holiday. Everything EXCEEDED our expectations each visit. We were pleasantly surprised by the location of the High Grove area. It was very close to shopping, eating, and area attractions. We loved having a private pool and could enjoy quiet evenings poolside once we returned from sight seeing or visiting an amusement park. We are planning to return in 2006 with a large family gathering. We have been sharing our experience with all of our friends and relatives.

This is the 3rd time we have stayed in one of Shane & Heather's places, and will do so again. We had brought my 90 year old Mother-in Law down to see her Granddaughter get married. She enjoyed the house so much, and spent most of her time there outside by the pool, as did we. The natural setting around us was peaceful and serene. Another great vacation thanks to Vacation by the Mouse""",,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Sincerely," Paul and Dianne Reeves."

We just stayed at one of Shanes Wonderful houses.. We have stayed with him for the last 3 years and in 3 different houses... We just love them.. They are all very clean and nice homes..And well worth the money. We just love having out own pool with noone in it but our family and our own jacuzzi too.. The new game room was a great add on also.. Our daughter really liked it..We stayed in High Grove and it is so easy to get to Disney World from the houses...I am sure we will stay in another one of your great homes on our next trip to Disney World...Thanks again... 2006

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation. The house we rented in Sandy Ridge was beautiful! We chose not to heat the pool, but will include it on our next vacation. The house was centrally located within the major theme parks, restaurants and shopping/supermarkets, etc. My suggestions for improvements about the house are two-fold: 1. A safe - we didn't want to leave our passports home so we took them in our fanny packs where ever we went. It was a pain we went to the Water Parks because one of us had to stay with our bags at all times. It would have been nice to have had a safe in the house where we could have secured the passports, as in a hotel. 2. I would suggest not having carpet in the family room as you enter the house via the patio, as people are coming in from the pool area and the carpet tends to get wet. Overall, we would extremely pleased with our accommodations. We will certainly recommend it to our friends, and will book again with Vacationbythemouse for our next trip to Florida!

It was nice to come home"" and have a large area with plenty of room and your very own pool. The kitchen and cooking utensils were very nice. This was our first house we have ever rented for vacation and were a little worried about what we were going to get. But", Shane answered all our questions we had prior to booking the home and was EXTREMELY helpful and nice. We highly recommend you book one of his homes for your next vacation, you will NOT regret it.

The Sandy Ridge area south of Orlando is such a great location - so close to CVS, Publix, McDonalds and the other shops (and golf courses) at Champion's Gate without having to get on I-4, yet quiet and remote. Once on I-4, Disney, Universal and Sea World were a quick drive (unless I-4 got busy). Having the pool in our house was a special treat. The pool provided some downtime between all the other attractions in Florida, yet no one was bored. Our only regret was having to leave.

The home we stayed in was more than we expected....very current appliances and furnishings.....clenliness is very important to my wife and I and we were impressed with the conditions we found. The location was very convenient to Disney, highways, shopping etc. Our children thoroughly enjoyed having their own private pool and games room. I spoke to a few other families while we were at Disney about where they were staying and I am convinced the home we stayed at was superior in terms of amenities as well as value. We have already decided to return next year and we have recruited some friends to join us. On our drive home we stopped at a hotel for the night and I realized how spoiled we were in the Orlando home ....I couldn\'t imagine spending a week in a hotel room ever again.

My family stayed at 16605 Caribbean Breezeway for 8 days on Mar 3/06. It was the most beautiful place that we have ever stayed. The only thing that we regretted was that we did not get the pool heated. The house has everything that you could ask for and more. It was so clean and spacious. It was so great to go to Disney land or shopping and just come back home"" and relax by the pool. Before we went on our trip", i had a dozen questions and changes to make and Shane made them always even though i am sure there were times that he was sick of listening to me. So thanks Shane for all your help. It was truly a wonderful holiday and your homes made it so. We spent 2 other nights at a villa and regretted it so much. It was very small and definitely not clean. So without a doubt," in the future i will definitely rent from Disney by the mouse. It was the best home away from home."

Hi Hope! We had a wonderful week in Orlando. The house was great - huge! It was located in the Reunion area (which was about 1/2 mile from where we stayed last year). We were familiar with the area so that was a plus. We enjoyed having plenty of room. Ty's parents came over for 2 days and we still had room to spare. The kitchen was great and very clean. The pool was awesome! We enjoyed it for just a couple of days because the weather was so cold. We loved having access to a washer and dryer. The neighborhood was quiet and pretty. One day we had a wild turkey in the back yard! Disney world was wonderful - Of course. And Sea World is offering a deal - buy any one day pass and use it as often as you wish for the next 6 consecutive days. You may want to pass that tip along to others. We did not realize until we got to the park - but if we knew we would have planned our days a little differently. Thanks so much for helping us with our vacation. I have passed your information along to several others.

The house was very clean, stocked with just about anything you need, the game room and the pool kept the kids from any kind of boredom! It's actually inspired the family we stayed with to convert THEIR garage into a game room. I can't express to you how much we enjoyed our stay!

I have and will recommend this type of setup as the best way to enjoy a vacation with family or multiple families and see the parks, with a nice environment to go home to after hitting the parks. Having laundry room to keep up with clothes and a nice kitchen to cook breakfasts in helped reduce luggage and have a good meal less expensive then the parks! The king size room with the huge soaking tub & walk-in shower was great for letting the grand-kids play in the tubby as well as providing soaking for aching feet. The game room was a good meeting area for playing pool or air-hockey with our adult kids. Great job on assisting us have the best "family" vacation. I hope to start a tradition in future years.

Even during high season we still had easy and timely access to all Orlando attractions. it was also nice to come home"" after a busy day to unwind in private pool.

WOW what a great trip - For anyone who has any concerns regarding renting a home for their Walt Disney Vacation - I am hear to say, GO FOR IT! This past trip was our fourth trip to Disney and the first time we rented a house off site. Shane's home was everything we could have asked for. We were only a few minutes from the parks, making mid afternoon breaks very easy. Only suggestion I have is plan for time at the house, my family was so pleased with the pool and game room - there were days I could not get them back in the parks. Thanks Shane - We will be back in a few years.

This was our second straight year staying at one of Shane's fabulous homes. This year we stayed in the Highgrove Community, last year we stayed in Mickey's Hide-Away House in Towncenter. We enjoyed our stay at Vacation By The Mouse so much last year that we decided that this is the only way to truly enjoy a vacation away from home. As expected the home Shane provided to us this year was warm, clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. Although we have never met Shane personally it seems like we already know him, he has always been accessible and very professional. It has been an Honor and Pleasure doing Business with Shane. We are looking forward to spending our next vacation at Vacation by the Mouse. We have already recommended his properties to friends and family. Thanks once again Shane and Heather for making this year's vacation at Vacation by the Mouse relaxing and enjoyable. Thanks for a great Vacation.!!!!!!!!!!!

It was very relaxing to come home and swim in the pool or just watch television. There were plenty of towels, linens, and cooking utensils. The appliances were very easy to operate.

The management staff was very kind and great to work with while we were there. We would surely stay at this same resort home again. Super accommodations for the price!! We weren't directly next to Disney, but the amenities in the home and price we were quoted far made up for the 20min drive. Also," having a Super Walmart across the street was too convenient!!!

The house (341 Highgrove) was impeccably furnished and very clean. The pool and game room were definite bonuses. The pool was heated and it was a big hit with the kids. It was a great value because it was less than a single hotel room with loads of space and a private pool. I will highly recommend Vacation By The Mouse to others. Thanks!

We first met Shane two years ago when looking for a home to stay at while visiting Disney. We were very pleased when dealing with him. He provided us with everything we needed to know and he was very personable. We were also happy with the (Simba's Retreat) that we chose. We knew after that positive experience that we would look no where else when we visited Disney again. Well, we just returned 1-22-05. WOW!! What wonderful home. Not only were we minutes from Disney, but it was hard to leave our rental. The house was gorgeous! Very spacious and decorated tastefully. My three kids couldn't have been happier. They had a tough decision to make every night--the pool or the game room. Shane told me how happy we would be here. I'm glad I took his word for it because seeing is believing. I would recommend Vacation by the Mouse in a heart beat. Shane is easy and nice to deal with and the villa is everything and more. Why stay on Disney grounds when you can have the privacy and pleasure of your own vacation home. Don't hesitate, call Shane and book your rental now!

I always believed that to get over the tiredness of a vaction you need another one :) But this time thanks to Shane everything was different. We have rented Simba's house and my 2, 11 year olds adored the swimming pool. They were rushing us through the Amusement Parks just to get to the pool and enjoy it. The master bedroom was very nice with a BIG hot tub. The house was very very clean. Furniture was very well maintained. Every single detail was very well thought and laid out. The property deserves 5 stars.

This home was by far the best vacation get-away ever!!! All of the ammenities were so well thought out, not to mention the extras. Shane was such a wonderful person to do business with. Very helpful and attentive. All of the tourist attractions are very close by, the privacy is superb. I highly recommend these homes to anyone. I am looking forward to coming back already. Thanks for making our vacation feel like a home away from home.

Our family stayed at Simba's Retreat the last week of May. The home was just as everyone else has stated very very nice. Shane was very helpful in every way and for the price you just can't beat. We have some days left on our Disney Hoppers so we will definetly be back to stay at one of Shane's homes. It was nice not being all crammed into a studio size hotel with our 3 children. The grocery store was maybe 2 minutes away so it is in a convenient location as well. It was so nice having a pool in our own backyard which made it convenient from being in the parks all day to jump right in. By noon everyday at Disney the kids were wanting to go back to the pool. I have already told many co-workers, friends and families about these homes. Don't know what else to say but....Thank you Shane & wife for providing families the opportunity to stay at your homes

We stayed in your Simba's retreat home on May 16,2004 and I couldn't have been more pleased! The house is beautifully decorated and has all the amenities of home. The kids enjoyed the pool and truth be told, would rather have stayed in the pool than gone to the Disney parks! We have stayed in other condo's in Florida and have never come across a deal like yours. The house was inexpensive and a great addition to our vacation. I would definitely recommend your properties to friends and family and should we get the chance to visit again, we will look for your properties as our number 1 option. Thanks for a great vacation!

Simba's retreat is a great house to use for your Disney vacation. We had room enough for 6 adults and 5 children. The pool was very refreshing after a long day at the park, and I think the kids would have rather stayed at the pool then do the parks!! I would definitely refer all my friends and family to vacation by the mouse! Susan Roth

Shane, thank you for accommodating us at the last minute. My husband and I decided that we had had enough cold weather and snow and decided to take the week off with the kids and head to Florida. The house and pool were great, location perfect! We really weren't that far from Disney and ended up going to Downtown Disney and Disney Boardwalk a few nights. Because of your arrangements, this vacation turned out to be one of my most enjoyable and stress free vacations I've had in a long time. My kids (ages 21, 17 and 9) enjoyed the home and especially the pool. Our volleyball games, in the pool, were fun and relaxing. Watching some of the golfers on the golf course in the back yard was entertaining at times. Thank you!

Lots of room for the kids to move around and swim! We also brought the kids scooters and they were able to play on them in the driveway and along the street without cars coming and going. It was also nice that Disney was only about 10 min. away so we could come home in the afternoon to relax and then go back to Disney in the evening. I told my husband that I want to come back next year and just enjoy the house and pool and not do anything else! What a wonderful vacation and staying at Mickey's Hideaway helped make it the best vacation ever! Thanks!

She even ask me for your address to send you her regards personally (so please e-mail it to me). SHANE THANK YOU FOR GIVING US ALL THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER...

We were skeptical of renting a home off the internet without actually seeing it. We rented a home from Shane and his wife in March, 2003. The home was more than we expected. The neighborhood was excellent. The people were so friendly. We needed more than a week to see everything that Florida had to offer. We are looking to go back to Florida this year 2004. We would rent from Shane and his wife again. The home slept 8 people very comfortably. The pool was excellent. The kids enjoyed the pool as much as they enjoyed Disney World. We would advise anyone to rent from Shane and his wife.

We were searching for a vacation home close to the Orlando attractions. I contacted Shane via the website, and was certain that this home would be the perfect vacation rental for our extended family. There were 8 of us- my parents and sister and the myself, my husband and our 3 young children. The children even took swimming lessons to prepare themselves for the private pool! We planned on renting the smaller home, but it worked out so that we rented the larger one. Shane maintained extensive contact with me through email and phone calls throughout the entire process. When we arrived at Simba's Retreat, it was more than we could have possibly imagined. Everyone of us was very pleased to have rented such a wonderful home for the week. It had everything we could need, including a high chair and port-a-crib for my 2 year old. Shane even called us personally the very day we checked in to make sure everything was ok for us. I would highly recommend this property to anyone interested in an affordable, highest quality vacation stay. The neighborhood is clean, quiet and close to Disney attractions. It's worth every penny of your vacation budget to stay here. >We will definitely be back!
