Disney Area Vacations @ Island Club West
Town house with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and shared pool in Club West, Florida
Booking cost: £0.00
From £384 per week
3 bedroom town house unit at a great price and only 10 miles from Walt Disney World!! Phone, Cable TV & WIFI all included - Grab yourself a bargain so you have more money to spend in the Theme Parks!!
The town-house is located at the Island Club West community in Davenport. The community offers a selection of amenities for guests to enjoy such as the pool, Jacuzzi & gym but my target renter is the theme park vacationer who will probably spend all their time in the parks and water parks rather than staying at the resort hence my pricing is based on my property alone and what I provide as ultimately its the only thing I have any control over - If you wish to use the resort amenities you will need to pick up a resort wristband from the clubhouse. A small deposit will be required but this is returned when the wristband is returned.
I don't believe in misleading guests when it comes to my property description and will say outright that the appearance of my living room is dated and would be locked up by the fashion police. That said, my prices are extremely low to reflect that this isn't the Hilton and until the exchange rate recovers and I can put together several thousands to replace the furniture then this is still a great place to stay as furniture aside, you are getting 3 large bedrooms plus full facilities including TV, Phone & Internet for as much as £100 per week less than others renting in the same area - I simply want to cover my costs and allow others to experience the fun and thrills of the parks until I can save up the money for a major renovation.
Due to restrictions placed upon me by the resort homeowners association, I prefer bookings of less than 28 days as any guest staying 28 days or more is subject to a background check prior to their arrival which involves a non refundable $50 fee per guest aged 18 and over being paid. A default charge on long stay bookings of £125 will be added based on 2 adults but if your party has more or less the amount will be manually adjusted.
Important Note for Short Stay - If you are only planning to stay for 9 nights please book 10 as the cost of the extra night is less than the cost of the cleaning charge which is added to bookings of less than 10 days.
The ground floor consists of a motel room style bedroom, bathroom, lounge, kitchen and dining area.
The dining area has a table with seating for 6 people. The kitchen has just about everything you can think of - if you want to cook you can cook but most people prefer to eat out - it's cheaper and you don't have to wash the dishes afterwards. Finally the living room has 2 2-seater sofas, a coffee table, TV and Blu-ray/DVD player (please note all DVD players only play region 1 DVD's) and a wicker chair. The living room also gives access to the outside play area.
*The downstairs bedroom contains 1 double bed (American Full), a TV, Blu-Ray/DVD player, fridge/freezer and coffee machine. The bathroom contains a toilet, wash basin and bath with built in shower. Access to these 2 rooms is not normally included with the main 3 bedroom property I am renting but if I'm not using them for other reasons I can provide them at no extra cost - If you need the extra room please message me to see if they can be made available to you.
Upstairs we have the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, 2 additional bedrooms plus the bathroom.
The master bedroom has a King sized (American Queen) bed, TV & DVD player. The en-suite bathroom has a toilet, wash basin, Jacuzzi bath and separate stand-in shower. The 2nd bedroom contains 2 Single beds (American Twin) whilst the 3rd contains 1 Double bed (American Full). Finally the upstairs bathroom contains a toilet, wash basin and bath with built in shower.
Inflatable beds can be found in the closets should you require additional sleeping arrangements - I have 2 single child beds plus 2 double beds.
Cable TV offering 100+ channels is available in the living room as well as all the bedrooms which are fitted with a TV and DVD player. There is also a large selection of DVD's in the living room which provide many hours of entertainment for the entire family should you wish to have an early night and watch TV in bed.
WIFI is available within my property and the Clubhouse also offers a free wifi service 24/7 around the pool area - To access the clubhouse wifi network you will need to take your wifi device to the reception area during their open hours to get your connection authenticated.
Please note, whilst rare, extreme storms can cause problems with the service providing the TV/Phone/Internet which can see loss of service for several weeks. When this happens I have no control over restoring service other than to report to the utility company and await their engineers to restore service.
The rental price also includes access to my house phone where you can make free local and domestic calls within the USA - if you need to make international calls you will need to purchase a pre-pay call card from the local supermarket which you'll be able to access from the house phone via the free phone number.
To the front of the property you will find parking bays to park your car - a maximum of 2 vehicles are allowed.
At the rear of the property is a large grass area where children can play or you can sunbathe if you prefer not to do so by the pool.
The property is located in the Island Club West resort which is just 10 miles west of the Walt Disney World entrance (Approx 20 minute drive). Sea World is only 19 miles away (Approx 30 min drive) and Universal Orlando 23 miles (Approx 35 min drive). The resort is located just off Highway 27 which intersects with two main roads used for accessing the attractions - Interstate 4 (I4) and State Road 192 (SR192). The SR192 intersection is only a few miles north of the property and along the SR192 you will find all the shops and restaurants you could dream off.
It is important to know that you will need a car is staying on this resort as there is no public transportation in this area - the nearest bus stop is approx 3 miles away. As only 2 cars are permitted per unit if you have a large group please ensure that you only plan to travel in a maximum of 2 cars as I can not accepts bookings if you plan on having 3 cars,
For your grocery needs there is a Publix supermarket within a mile of the house at Berry Town Center which includes a shopping plaza which has several restaurants including Appleby's and there is a Walmart store within 3 miles of the property as well as Target stores both 7 miles North & South of the property.
Due to the houses close proximity to Highway 27 and the I4 it's easy to get to / from the airports - It can take an hour or so depending on traffic to get there but that's normal in Florida.
Resort Facilities and Nearby Attractions
The Homeowners Association patrol the resort throughout the day as well as the local sheriffs office patrol cars at night. Entrance to the resort is restricted by a security barrier system which has been installed at the main entrance to prevent un-authorised vehicle access.
As an alternative to relaxing at the resort I would suggest the Disney Water Parks - Typhoon Lagoon & Blizzard Beach for your days of relaxation. If you are going to Florida for the Disney parks then you will probably purchase a 7 or 14 day ticket. This ticket gives access to the Disney water parks and as they aren't too far away it makes them an ideal alternative to staying at the resort.
Another option for a relaxing day is SeaWorld - you'll do some walking buy it's mostly a day of watching shows and the park background music is so relaxing. They also have the new Aquatica water park for you to relax at.
Finally, for those who love the movies or enjoy the white knuckle rides, you have to check out the Universal Orlando parks - Universal Studios, Islands Of Adventure and Volcano Bay Water Park.

We stayed at the property for our two week holiday in Orlando. Excellent value for money, close to all the parks and exactly as shown in the advert. We will definitely book again!
The location of the house is very good and central to a lot of attractions.
There is a Publix supermarket and English pub very close.
The inside of the house is a little dated and in need of updating but we would definitely return for another holiday.
It did the job only criticism the beds are very uncomfortable. You get what you pay for.
Great accommodation could not have asked for anything more. Facilities were just what we needed. Will certainly book this again on our next visit.
The kitchen was well equipped with fridge, microwave, washer and dryer and all the pots and pans one could want.
There was ac in the house to keep us cool
Beds were great to sleep in. Bedding was clean and fresh. Plenty of towels and spare bedding if needed. Tv in every bedroom was great.
There were three bathrooms with showers and three toilets so plenty for everyone.
Loved the on site gym and pool - used a lot!
Only down side was the lack of wifi in the house. There was free wifi at the reception but the office was closed half the time.
The property was in an excellent location, with a publix and various shops in close proximity. There were 5 adults in our party and we had plenty of space. The surrounding area was in a bit of disrepair but the community was dealing with that as workmen were around each day. We frequently visit Florida for the parks and would book this property again as it was good value for money. I would recommend anyone visiting the parks though to book their tickets in the UK as there are more deals and the queues for tickets were longer than queing for rides.
The instructions that we received from villa renters and the owner, communication before, during and after were excellent. Thank you
