View Full Version : Tree House Villa - Love 'em

Okay, I am sitting at the desk in the Master Bedroom of THV 7056. As I look out my window I can see a squirrel scurring up the tree just outside my window. My sister's room looks right out at the pool. AWESOME TreeHouse location.

The pictures (those taken by others and me) do not do the villa justice. The little details are awesome. The water faucets are my favorite so far, the mouth of the faucet looks like an old fashion water spout. (I will try to download my pictures later).

There are 4 Flat Screen TVs - one in each BR and one in the great room

There are hookup for auxilliary items near each TV including PC connections.

While the maps make it seem a far distance to everything, it is really not hard to get anywhere. Especially if you in the south end of the loop. From 7056, it only takes about 5 minutes to walk to Grand Stand and maybe 5 more minutes to Artist Palete.

Officially to go to the parks, you must catch an internal Treehouse bus to the Springs and then catch a bus from there to the parks. I think I will just walk to Grand Stand.

OVerall the mood here is VERY peaceful and relaxed. I think I will miss my King size bed in the master, but I will get over it. I think I definitely have to stay here again.

(Sorry - I don't have my camera's cable with me so no pictures till we get home.)

I'm staying at SSR right now and I just saw this afternoon a bus that had Treehouse Villas and Grandstands on the sign. Has anyone heard if they are adding another bus for just this purpose? I don't know why it would say that if they weren't.

I just saw the pics of the faucet and yelled, "OMG, they have our faucet in the treehouses!" We found it on clearance at Lowes a few years ago. :yay:

I can't wait for January to get here! When we passed the driveway into the Treehouses yesterday, I was so wanting to drive in and be able to stay there.

Can you maybe post the new Saratoga resort map showing the Treehouses on it and the paths and roads that go to them?

I wish I could get my parents to travel out East with us! Would be perfect for the 6 of us as they love to golf and we love Disney!

Love hearing about the THV, keep the reports coming. We're staying for two nights after our Nov cruise as a THV tester with 8 adults and DGS.

TnRobin - Are the bunkbeds big enough for an average adult? Do they have any size restrictions posted?

I saw allearsnet listed there were 2 stops at the THV for park buses...I was hoping they were right, but I guess not.

Mackwell posted on Mousecellaneous board couple days ago info on bunkbeds - they are manufactured by Old Hickory Furniture and dimensions are 45 wide x 85 length. I believe that is standard size for twin mattress.

I will try to post link to their site where you can have better look.

thanks so much for the pics and info! We are staying 7/11-7/18, can't wait. Is the bus situation ok so far? Any remarks on that? how long is it to Downtown Disney from there? I heard we can catch a boat across the lake, is that near the treehouses at all?

Well, there's this map (http://www.explorethemagic.com/images/maps/Tree-House-Villas-Map.jpg).

Boy, that path to The Grandstand is going to make me nervous. Especially when I'll be walking it with the back of my head is facing the 18th tee of LBV golf course.

Thanks! The length is better than I thought and neither one of the adults in our group are very tall, just average height so it should be fine.

WE have two teen boys (5'7") in the bunks, they fit fine.

We are staying there in December and we can't wait. They look great. I want to say thank you to Kathy for posting those great pictures. I will have to show my DD and DH tonight when I get home. Hopefully my new computer will be working by then.

Another poster has stated that their unit at THV has no indoor locks on the bathrooms and bedrooms... is that true of your unit as well?

Great info. I'm going to book for the week b4 Christmas 2010. At BWV this year. (SSR is my home resort).

TnRobin

Yes it is true - no locks on any doors except the exterior door. It is a little of an adjustment, but I guess that is to keep the little ones from locking themselves in a room by accident. I think this maybe be a fire safety thing due to the number of trees around.

Also another thing we noticed that we believe is a safety feature. All the bedroom windows have mickey stickers on them that can be seen from the outside. I think this is to tell the FD where the bedrooms are.

Thanks for posting. We have our first stay in THV starting 6/16 for two weeks and we are so looking forward to it. My husband recently returned from Iraq so this is our welcome home vacation and it looks like this is going to be a great place to do it!

Assuming your husband is in the military - thanks to your family for their sacrifice and please thank him for his service.

I was thinking the same thing! DH and I are going to OKW in October however I find myself longing for my April 2010 trip to THV. We are meeting our sons (both serving in the Airforce) at the THV. Can't wait to all be together as a family.....The THV sound perfect for our family...my boys miss hunting and fishing in western New York, they love the wilderness....I am so excited for our stay!:yay::yay::yay:

Hey, we will be there also from 7/12 through 7/18. Maybe we'll see each other:thumbsup2

Can't wait to try out the treehouses! The 5 of us usually stay @the VWL. This trip we are bringing my 2 sister-in-laws & my nephew. I remember seeing the older treehouses as a kid & wanted to try one.

Has anyone stayed in a handicapped villa? I have a 6yr old handicapped daughter. Hope I get one near the river!! I heard there are only 4 accessible treehouses.

My youngest (4yr old girl) is excited about the fake frogs spitting water at the treehouse pool area & the bunk beds.
