One of our recent families recently wrote this after staying in Hemingway: It was right up there with Disney's new Expedition Everest! We couldn't wait to get back to the condo every night. And when it was time to finally go home, our son Sean was crying and did not want to leave. I promised him we would come back again and he replied - " but only if we can stay HERE!"
Hope to have the pleasure of giving you and your family the most unforgettable Disney/Orlando vacation imaginable!

We had an amazing stay. We thought everything was too good to be true when reading the reviews. It is all that is advertised and then some. From the amenities provided to the added touches, it made our stay wonderful. Frank's helpful hints and the spacious rooms helped our family stay close as well as give us time apart.
Our short daily drive to Disney World was unbelievable. Couldn't have asked for a better vacation.

Whenever I'm talking to someone about Disney, I always tell them about amazing Disney Homes! My wife and girls and I have stayed at three of Frank and Lenore's condos now, and we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.
I've stayed in the parks. The resorts are nice, but the bottom line is you get a small hotel room for an outrageously high price.
Frank and Lenore's condos are spacious, well furnished, fully outfitted, and clean! They always have plenty of linens, blankets, and towels. The kitchen is fully stocked for any cooking needs. You don't have to worry about paper products, soap, shampoo, etc. They think of everything! Plus there's a pool and hot tub right outside!
The condos are in a cute subdivision of condos and patio homes right off a main highway (Rt. 192) so anything you could need is just a short drive away. The Super Walmart, Super Target, Publix, Walgreen's, restaurants, etc are probably closer than they are to you where you live. All of this at 1/3 the cost of staying at a Disney resort, and did I mention the pool and hot tub right outside!
The parks are just minutes away. Image you bought a place that's as close to Disney as you can possibly get, and you have the basic idea. Condo to Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood - 15 minutes. Magic Kingdom - 17 min. Sea World and Universal - 25 min. You can't beat it!
There's no check in hassle either. Frank emails the combo to the key box before you travel. When you get there, you park in front of your condo, open the door, and relax.
Amazing Disney Homes are a perfect oasis from "wrench money out of your pocket bustle" of the parks. They truly give you a home away from home!

We had a wonderful time staying here. The condo was exactly as described in the listing on the web and the layout was excellent. We found it to be very comfortable, quiet, clean and spacious. It was well equipped with some of everything from dishes, towels, cleaning supplies and etc. It is a close drive to all the major theme parks, stores, and places to eat. My granddaughters didn't want to leave (LOL). We would definitely rent this place again! I would highly recommend staying here.

Just wanted to thank you so much for your hospitality during our stay. We had the most relaxing comfortable stay made possible by the extra touches you added to the condo. The amount of space and the price were perfect for our family! Our middle child, Brandi, didn't want to leave. The unit was nicely decorated and clean upon our arrival. We couldn't ask for anything more. Thanks again

The service was great, the air wasn't working one morning, I called Frank and when we returned that evening it was fixed. The home was very nice and roomy. The location was very good. Close to parks and restaurants,etc. It was very quiet and peacful there. The pool we went in was nice. We made breakfast every morning in the full kitchen. The only one thing we least liked which is no big deal, the sinks in the bath we're small for laying things out.

Beautiful condo. Close to everything. The owner went out of his way to make sure we had all the insider details about vacationing in Orlando, including buying tickets to the parks, the best restaurants, etc.

The animal Kingdom was perfect for our short stay in Orlando with a larger party of 6. If we stayed in a hotel we definitely would have needed 2 rooms. The condo was very close to Disney World. We loved that Frank had the Condo stocked well beyond the basics which was much appreciated seeing we were there for only 2 nights we did not do a large grocery stop but still had TP, coffee, shampoo etc. We also booked on short notice and Frank made it super easy. Thanks Frank. Will definitely stay here in the future.

I want to take the time to tell you the home was amazing!!! You and your wife have outdid yourselves again. I love the way the home felt so warm, you supplied everything we could possibility need. Everything was just perfect. I have referred you to family and friends and we will be coming on the weekends to visit Sea World and aquatica since we got season passes. Maybe if your homes are not occupied we can stay for the weekend sometimes.

This condo is the best we have ever stayed in. They have paid very close attention to detail. Most places we stay we end up at the grocery buying toilet paper, paper towels, etc. They provide it all plus coffe, tea, beach toys, towels, stroller, toothbrushes, laundry detergent, fabric softener, so many I cant list them all. Frank is wonderful to work with and will answer any questions you have. Even ones that are not about the condo. This place should recieve 10 stars!!

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in the animal
kingdom condo. It was very clean and had lots of
space. I recommend this place to anyone. Not to
mention the whole experience was that more
great dealing with someone like Frank. We can't
wait to go back.

Our party of six stayed here and had a great experience. The property was
very clean and well stocked. The Monteleone's called upon our arrival to make
sure everything was as expected, which I thought was a nice touch. It is a
little drive to the parks, but for the price and comfort level, it's worth it. Very
clean, lovely home, would definitely stay there again.

There's not enough space for me to describe my experience at the Animal Kingdom condo! Awesome, spectacular, superior, grand, quality-the list goes on! Frank & Lenore go beyond quality customer service, they treat you like you are their own personal house guest. The location of the condo is so convenient,4 miles from WDW but yet out of the crazy commercial area of Rt. 192. When you stay at the Animal Kingdom condo, all you need to bring are your clothes then just make a stop at the SuperTarget down the way to pick up some groceries! It's true in the description of the amenities,coffee, tea, health/beauty products, etc. are all provided,don't even pack your blow dryer, there's one for your use! They have thought of everything, it's better than staying in a 5 star resort! The pool/hot tub areas are great, and the people that are residents of the complex welcome you and are friendly. There's nothing better than coming home from a day of sightseeing and being able to sit back in a comfy chair with a glass of wine and relax! It's great not being "stuck" in a hotel room with just beds to sit on,with the condo you have the option of the living room, dining area, bedrooms or deck to sit at, plus having more than one television makes life a lot easier! When I tell family/friends about the condo's decor, items provided, etc., they are amazed at the nightly rate, and always ask for the contact information! Recently I stayed at a rental property in St. Pete Beach,all I am going to say is that the owners of that property need to take lessons from Frank & Lenore on customer service! I'm spoiled, only want to stay at a Monteleone owned property! They need to expand their locations! I have absolutely no hesitation in referring/recommending anyone to stay at this or any of the other Monteleone owned condos and have done so and those people feel the same as I do. So rent from the Monteleone's without hesitation, and I guarantee you'll be thrilled that you did! ENJOY!
