Owner Info

Alvina Fernandes

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: “Upendo” means “Love” in Swahili, my native language as a Kenyan-born immigrant who moved first to Washington D.C., and then to Toronto, Canada. Over the last decade, Upendo Orlando has witnessed love in all its forms: multi-generational families and blended families like ours, friends of all ages, couples ranging from newlyweds to fifty-year marriages.

And, of course, there’s the love for Orlando itself, a one-of-a-kind place where even the most skeptical people can feel like kids again. We hope that even our business travelers feel the love here after a long day of meetings!

Guestbook comments from the owner:

This place has it all. Spacious 3-bedroom unit, clean, beautifully decorated, quiet, great balcony view. Everything was so well-organized. Hassle-free check-in/check-out.

Location is super-convenient, about a half-mile from International Drive, with easy access to I-4. Family loved it. Highly recommend staying here if you're vacationing in Orlando.

This condo was perfect. We've stayed at a dozen vacation rentals and this one tops the list. First, very clean, which I appreciate. The decor, all the extra details were spot on. Loved that we had beach towels for the pool, plenty of laundry & dishwasher tabs, garbage bags, etc. So nice to not that to buy all this at the store. The condo was huge, plenty of space for our family to spread out. Pool area beautiful, bar was perfect. Owner very accommodating, helped us send back an item our family had left. Communication and kindness was also appreciated. No complaints, loved our stay here! Wish we could give it 10 stars!


Jul 2021

We absolutely loved this condo. The location and ease of parking was just super. The condo itself was equipped with all the latest perks. Very clean, good view, and the African design in art was delightful. Great place to come back to at the end of a busy day. We would definitely book this again.

We loved everything about this condo. The condo was beautiful, the location was awesome, very clean, and stocked with everything you could ask for. Just wish we had more time
