Yongping was easy to reach, answered all my questions and had complete instructions about the house. The house was perfect for our group of 14. All couples had their own rooms and kids had twin beds. We were expecting one more room with twin beds (only 2 rooms had twin beds) but it worked out fine. We did have a few issues with the pool but were very satisfied with how everything was handled. We spent lots of time in the spa/pool. One thing to note. The spa is not a hot tub. It can get warmer than the pool but not by much. We were there in late March/early April and paid for pool heating. We were glad we did. I think the water would have been too cold for swimming/playing in if we hadn't. We enjoyed that fact that the lanai was half covered by the upper bedrooms. It meant we could sit outside in the rain and stay dry. Also the chair pads stayed dry. Some area houses didn't have this and would be stuck inside during rain. It also gave us great shade for those that wanted it. The kitchen had enough of everything for us. Plates, cutlery, pots, towels, linens. We did bring some of our own towels and they were nice to have. Stores are close by so it's easy to pick up food supplies and anything you might have forgotten. It was nice having the reservoir behind the house instead of another house. Gave the backyard a very open feeling. We did see alligators in it so make sure kids don't go near it. We also had cranes come close just like in the picture.
The resort pool and hot tub were great and poolside food concession had some good choices. It's worthwhile visiting it for an afternoon.
This was the first time we've taken a family vacation to Florida, and we could not have chosen a better rental home for our group of 11. We wanted to take our grandchildren to the Disney parks for their first time. This house is only 15 minutes from Disney World! The lake in the backyard gave us such beautiful scenery and terrific, exotic (to us) bird watching. I fished regularly and accidentally hooked a small alligator! The house itself is gorgeous. Large, clean bedrooms. Spacious kitchen & living rooms. The family favorite was the lakeside patio with pool, hot tub, & grill. Lots of sun through the day for the girls to lay out. We actually would have enjoyed this vacation even if we stayed at the house every day. My son & I used the fitness equipment in the clubhouse. There was also a Tiki bar by the large community pool, as well as a game room for the teenagers. The owner & management company of this rental property were easily accessible, & pleasant to deal with. Having had issues over the years with other rentals, this made our vacation so enjoyable. I give this whole experience my highest rating, and hope we can vacation here again in the future. Dan & Cathy Schuman
