Gary Synder once said, "Nature is not a place to visit, it is home." Home is immediately how I felt during my stay at the Treehouse Villas at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. Here is my detailed review of the villa, and the resort!
The Treehouses are located behind the Saratoga Springs Resort right next to Old Key West Resort. Each Villa offers 1 parking space in order to keep things simple. Additional parking is available at any of the other parking lots at the resort.
Immediately you are greeted by a large two story villa that is literally IN the treetops. A barbecue grill is situated out front by the staircase that leads upstairs. The villas have a very secluded feel that makes them really homey.
Once you make it upstairs, a huge round patio extends off of the deck. It has a table and four chairs; perfect for enjoying the outdoors, especially during cooler weather.
Once inside you immediately feel the cabin/cozy vibe. A huge and heavy dining room table with four chairs and a bench seat greets you. The table was honestly one of my favorite parts. Stone pathways and green carpet fill the kitchen area adding to the great detail that makes these rooms feel luxurious.
One pull out queen bed and one pull out twin sleeper chair are in the living area.
The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook. The only thing it did not have was very large pans if your cooking for a lot of people. But it was not too bad.
Surrounded by wood, you can tell that Disney put their heart and soul into these villas. Every single detail works all together to make you feel more comfortable.
The master bedroom is spacious with high lofted ceilings. It comes with a desk area, two side tables, and one large dresser.
In the master bathroom, luxury makes itself known with the shower and tub combo. It has a rain shower and a regular shower head, complete with a bench seat and a jacuzzi tub.
The second bedroom has a set of twin bunk beds with a climbing ladder. This room has a closet and storage space for Knick knacks.
Finally, the third bedroom one queen bed with a closet and floor to ceiling windows to look outside.
The guest bathroom is shared by these two bedrooms and is woodsy and beautiful. It includes a full size shower with a bench seat.
Included in these villas are also a stackable washer and dryer, vacuum cleaner, safe, roll a way crib (additional/high chairs available upon request).
Without a doubt, the best part about the treehouse villas are the views. I was concerned initially that they weren't up high enough, and that I wouldn't get that treehouse feel. But I was pleasantly surprised. The height was perfect and you are completely surrounded by trees and light.
Overall, Saratoga Springs has now become MUST SEE resort because of these villas alone. Of course the resort and grounds are pleasant and beautiful too, but these treehouses are on another level entirely. I think any family or couple would love to stay here! I cannot wait to go back.
