My wife spent a VERY LONG time researching locations to book for our trip as we were a party of 9 and after reading all reviews on trip advisor we decided this was the place for us. The cul-de-sac location is quite and no need to worry too much about traffic. You are no more than 20 minutes away from pretty much anything you can think of and unless you take a wrong turn that includes getting to most of the parks. Overall the house is perfect for a large family and group with almost all the amenities that you will need to make your stay a smooth and fun one. On arrival at the villa we were greeted at the front door with spider webs so Im not sure whose supposed to be maintain the entry way they missed several webs and spiders. When we opened the door and looked around we were pleased at how large the place really was and the pictures are pretty straight on to what you will get during your stay.
We were highly disappointed to learn of the DAILY charge to have the pool/Jacuzzi heated and in addition to the owners fee the management company will charge you a fee to come out to turn the heat on. Be prepare to buy your own laundry soap, sponges, etc as what was there was old and nasty and there is only one laundry pod provided. The major issue for us was the mattress comfort, the King Master bed was noisy to sleep on and every move you made the bed made noises. The 2nd large bedroom the mattress was so bad our friends slept on an air mattress after the 2nd day because the mattress hurt their back so bad. The kids rooms beds weren’t to far behind, its likely with how often this place is rented the owners look into replacing all the mattresses for higher quality ones.
The back fenced in pool area was great for lounging but we did have an unexpected visitor during our stay, being a native to FL we weren’t to surprise to see an 7-9 foot gator strolling up on the bank, but the close proximity of it to the house and the fact that there were quite a few small kids feeding the ducks we seen outside we were surprised there were NO signs posted about their being any crocs or gators in the lakes in the surrounding area.
All and all we would stay here again (as long as the mattresses are replaced) because despite the minor things this really was a great vacation rental. Communication with the owner had been pretty easy even given the time difference.
Just come back from staying nearly three weeks.
House was lovely and had everything you needed.
We had our daughter who is only 2 with us and the house was perfect including fencing around the pool to keep her safe.
Highly recommend this house and would book for our next visit without hesitation.
The owner is lovely and was so helpful.
The location is perfect for getting to shops and all the attractions. We did Disney and Animal Kingdom with no problems.
We enjoyed our stay, the house is perfect for big family/ group. The pool area is big and has plenty of room to sunbathe. The owner is easy to communicate with and is very helpful.
The home was exactly what we were looking for. House manager Olga was so attentive and available when needed. She truly cares for her guests and the property. Thank you for a great experience.
Having been regular visitors to Florida for a number of years we have finally found a villa that has everything we could ask for.
The location is amazing and provided us with the privacy we love. You are not overlooked and have no villas directly to the side of you. The sunset across the lake is absolutely stunning. If like us you spend a lot of time by the extended pool area be assured that you will have sun all day !!
The house is furnished to a high standard and is well maintained both in and outside. There are numerous personal touches throughout the house such as mood lighting in the kitchen and curtains in the bedrooms an addition I loved. There is an extensive book and DVD library, games etc that make you feel like you are in a home away from home rather just being in yet another rental property.
Golf clubs, fishing rods and bikes are all available for personal use.
The management company were easily accessible and dealt with all minor queries in a timely fashion.
Andy has been superb from start to finish, keeping in touch with us throughout the whole process. He even goes the extra mile to share his experiences to ensure you get the most out of your stay.
We loved this villa so much we have already rebooked for 2018 !!
