“A pleasant Winter get-away in Kissimmee”
Reviewed 5 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

The Florida Pad provided us with a comfortable home base while we escaped Winter for Feb. 2018. Although close enough to Disney, the house is in a quiet residential neighbourhood so you can get away from the crazy traffic! We lucked out with the weather and enjoyed many golf games at area courses, and then found the pool very inviting when we returned. We enjoyed several area restaurants (Longhorn Steakhouses were our favourites), but we also made good use of the barbeque.
Although dated, the house was clean. The owner (Marianne) was a delight to deal with, and has indicated upgrades are planned for Summer 2018.
We will be back.

“Kissimmee Getaway”
Reviewed 27 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The villa is in a useful location not far from Medieval Times. It is smaller than others we have stayed in and while we had plenty of space staying as a couple, it won't be cramped for an average family of four. The villa can sleep six. The pool netting needs some repairs, though we find that is not an unusual issue with properties we have stayed in over the past two decades..While US visitors will be used to the cable TV system, some UK visitors may not be. The Digital TV Adaptor (DTA) provides the channels to the TV. It is a small black box close to the TV and has its own remote (look for the red DTA button). The unit is on when it has a green LED on and use the DTA remote to change channels.

“This house is nice, but.......”
Reviewed 16 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

people found this review helpful

While for the most part the house is nice, there are some things that would have made our stay better. The house tended to get stuffy, especially the bedrooms. We did find one box fan to use in the master bedroom, we ended up buying another for use in the other bedroom that was being used. The master bedroom bed is not a king size which was fine for me since my husband ended up working and was unable to come on this trip. We never used enough dishes to make using the dishwasher necessary, and ended up buying dish soap as well as laundry soap and dryer sheets (the last two I expected to buy). There were no trash bags for the indoor trashcans and no lids for the outdoor trashcans. The hall shower drain is also clogged or very slow draining. This was an inconvience to my daughter and her boyfriend as there was no way for one to quickly take a shower while waiting for the shower to finally drain. The pool was wonderful and the water temp was great. Overall the house is okay to stay in but some updates are needed. It was basiclly all that we needed to sleep and hang out in for the few times we did not have anything planned. I am going to mark that I would recommend this rental only because we did have a nice clean home to stay in verses staying in a hotel.
