I have been LIVING the Airbnb lifestyle for a year and a half now, and this is my SECOND time spending a full month with Nanda and her family. I stayed with them a year ago, and felt so welcomed and comfortable, that I decided to stay with them again. Nanada is a great host, and also a cleaning fiend; she's the only host I've had in all that time who asks if she can clean my room once a week and insists on making sure I have clean sheets and towels -- most hosts tend to neglect that if you're there long term. Dr. Phillips, their neighborhood was recently listed as one of the most livable in the U.S.A. Their home is a 20 minute walk from the (side) Universal Citywalk entrance, so a doable hike, but also a cheap three minute taxi ride; and her husband will get you from the airport if you need him to. For myself, I prefer Disney to Universal, have a car (and a 1 year pass), and their home is an easy 15-20 minute low stress drive using side roads (like the locals, I avidly avoid I4 when in Orlando -- recently listed as the most dangerous bit of highway in America). From a grocery persepective, Nanda's home is a 3 minute drive from Trader Joes, Fresh Market (fabulous prepared foods), a Whole foods that has multiple cafes inside it, two different Publix (I prefer the one on Dr. Phillips over the one on Sandhill), and a 8 minute drive from a Costco with a gas station, and the Millennial mall. If you don't have a costco membership, the gas station just a block down from their house has what is consistently the 2nd cheapest gas in the area. It's also relatively close to some of the best restaurants in the Orlando area, in the restaurant row on Sandhill (some amazing happy hours, my favorite is Moonfish's for $1 oysters and $3 sashimi tacos).
