We enjoyed one of the High Grove homes for our November 2006 vacation. It was a perfect solution for a family with little children. The home was clean, spacious,and extremely close to WDW. The owners were great to deal with and the value is unbeatable. We will certainly be planning return trips using their homes. Thanks! :) The Abrams Family

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.

This is our second time staying at 16648 High Grove and once again we were not disappointed. After long days at the amusement parks, there is nothing like returning to a beautiful home with a beautiful heated pool. We had 8 people and the 5 bedrooms made it great for everyone! Thanks again, we will be back!!!!

The house was beautiful. We treated my parents to a vacation with us down to Disney and a few days my parents just stayed at the house and relaxed. The value is great. You couldn't get much closer to Disney without staying at a hotel. We will definetly be booking again on any future vacations.

We enjoyed one of the best Thanksgivings ever relaxing in these wonderful homes (3 homes). It was the 1st time in 5 years that all of our 5 grown children & their families have been able to be together at 1 place at the same time with plenty of room for togetherness as well as privacy. The children (8 grandchildren all 6 and under) were able to toddle, run, jump, and play outside. We were able to sit on those quaint porches and just enjoy life! The entire week was superb! I would recommend Magnolia by the Beach to anyone who appreciates quality in a home atmosphere. Thanks!

Well, what can we say, except that Shane & Heather have done it again. This was our second time staying in one of their house's they offer and once again our stay was wonderful. The house was like being home. Our two boys 16 and 9 along with both of us loved the game room, the pool and the jacuzzi. There is just no other way to vacation in Florida. We will definately be back. Thanks, Heather & Shane for all you do, and helping us have a great vacation.

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"

For a group of old broads who haven't had a vacation in a decade, I have to say this was the BEST vacation that I have ever had. The house was in pristine condition, and I felt comfortable, safe, and perfectly at home. You usually don't feel that way in a "rented" vacation house. We will be back!

I've been coming to the Emerald coast for over 20 years with my parents, so it was a pleasure to bring my family there for the first time; my son's first beach experience couldn't have been more picture perfect. We were really impressed with the amenities, far better than the Seaside houses I've stayed in. The neighbors, including the construction crew were most hospitable. I can't say enough how wonderful it was to stay there; my husband and I will be recommending Vacations by the Beach,Seacrest, FL to the entire Vanguard company and ASTC association. It's worth it for families who want to enjoy a fun, relaxing and quiet vacation spot!

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!! 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. Which worked out great for us!!

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!! Thank you, Shane for your patience and professionalism throughout our booking...we have passed your name and phone number along to all of our friends and family and will happily stay with you again next year!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Sheila and Matthew Dunlap, Columbus Grove, OHIO

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.

It was nice to come home after all day at the parks and have dinner in such a nice home. My kids loved the pool and the game room.

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.

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!

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 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.

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."

We have rented houses many times in Orlando,but this house in High Grove was the greatest and the best price. Shane made our reservation effortless.We loved the privacy that one cannot get in a hotel.We felt a bit guilty as we were only two with a five bedroom but we like to have lots of room.Also the pool was heated when we arrived which was important.(We have had bad experiences with pool heat from other people)Thanks Shane!

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.

18 Magnolia by the Sea is WONDERFUL!!! It was so sweet of you to send Joyce by to check on us! We made it in just fine. Your house is so perfect! We have to pinch ourselves to make sure we are really here. Your home and Magnolia by the Sea is more than what the website shows. It is better than Seaside because the lots are larger and there is more space and NO parking on the street. The interior is pretty, pretty, pretty! Parts of it are elegant, parts of it are posh, parts of it are really cool. Kind of a mix of Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Martha's Vineyard and very Martha Stewart. I just love her and everything she does! We are having THE best time! The beach water is clear and beautiful. The weather is pleasant. Wish you were here!

We rented a house for a month. The house and pool exceeded our expectations. The house was deceiving from the outside. It looked like a small bungalow but it was quite large on the inside with 4 bedrooms and lots of room. The furniture and facilities were very good. It was a nice quiet neighborhood. It was conveniently located near Disney. Our special request was met and we really appreciated that. We would definitely book a house with you again.

We took our first family"" vacation 3 years ago this May. A friend from Florida suggested Vacation by the Mouse rentals instead of a hotel suite and we could not have been happier! We have since suggested this to others and are planning a return vacation this year and again will rent from Vacations by the Mouse."

We stayed in the 5 bedroom in High Grove and it was wonderful. Beautiful house and very relaxing. Wife loved the location since it is very close to a Supercenter Walmart. The kids enjoyed the house more than the grownups and the they appreciated the close vicinity to Mickey.

Can't say enough great things about our time at the High Grove location. The house was just as in the pictures, but better than described. It was so nice to have a home"" at the end of some busy days at the parks", and the kids loved it as much as we did. Nothing is left out here folks. It is easy to feel a little spoiled while renting here," and we will definitely rent here again next time we go to this beautiful state. Thanks to Shane and the other folks who made our stay so relaxing and fun. A nice quiet location that makes it very hard to leave!"

We all had a great time, thanks to beautiful accommodations! Thanks Shane for a wonderful place to reunite!!!

We stayed at 320 Summer loop in Highgrove during our vacation in November during Thanksgiving. The house was absolutely beautiful! The pictures on the web site don't do it justice! Much nicer than we had anticipated. We are glad we spent the extra money for the heated pool, it was colder than usual during this time of year and the pool was used almost everyday! 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! The two families were extremely comfortable in the house it was huge!! The house definitely made the vacation alot better! I can't find a reason to stay anywhere else.

We stayed December 24th-31st and had a wonderful time. The house was everything we expected plus! We had a 5-bedroom house and the layout was great for bringing our whole family 10adults and 2 grand-kids together. The grand-kids especially enojyed the pool. 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.
