This is a lovely well furnished home with a wonderful pool and hot tub. The major fault we found with it was the lack of a barbecue .For this reason alone we would not rent this house again ,who wants to spend 30 days in the beautiful Florida sun and have to cook inside of every day.
Also the lock box for the door key was very difficult to open and close so we kept the key under a rock ..The owners could for less than $100 put a keypad lock on the door.
We shared the house with another couple for a month and it adequately served all of our other requirements . The kitchen was fairly well-equipped except for the set of knives In the knife block which were almost totally useless and very frustrating .The dishwasher is very old and the noisiest I have ever heard but It did do good a good job of washing the dishes . Although there was a new Keurig in the kitchen the regular coffee pot which we preferred to use was very old and very slow .We were disappointed when we first arrived to find that the pool had not been heated .Not knowing anything about pools we waited three days for it to heat up before we called Yann the property manager. He immediately sent a pool technician to turn it on and refunded the money for the three days we were unable to use it.
If you have children Calabay park is located close to Orlando and Disneyland and Universal Studios and other attractions .It is also very close to grocery stores and other shopping.
One thing my husband did not like about the location was the fact that there was no where to safely walk outside of the gated community and he got bored .
The games room (garage } was useless in April heat because the garage door was sealed shut so not allowing any ventilation There were two ceiling fans but only one worked and the heat was
Lots of nice outdoor furniture including loungers
There were lots of linens for beds ,kitchen and bathroom ,Also lots of beach towels for the pool .
In conclusion if the owners replaced the coffee pot ,the knives the lockbox and provided a Barbecue it would be nice
The best part of our month of course was the beautiful Florida weather
And the use of the pool and hot tub
A well located, clean and well equipped villa that surpassed all my expectations for our 3wk vacatio
Everything about the villa was great, in a lovely gated area which houses a mixture of long term stays and short term vacation families. At night it was quiet and respectful whilst small noises of families enjoying themselves in the night heat could be heard.
The villa is so well equipped with things such as strollers, abundance of pool toys, towels coffee filter machine.. amazing oven and huge fridge freezer. The laundry room is amazing you can get large loads done and dried in a couple of hours.
The TV was new and had access to some on demand features for those lazy nights/days.
The pool and Jacuzzi was excellent for the kids and adults alike, my 6 yr old learned to swim and do underwater somersaults from not being able to even out her head under water.
The location was perfect for us as it's a quick 20min ride into disney but also easy to get across to Tampa and clearwater.(where we used the umbrella/seats and sand toys from the villa).
If I was to recommend a restaurant close by it would have to be Mannys Chophouse and Buffett city in cypress gardens (about 20mins drive)
Thabks again and I hope anyone reading this has as much fun as we did.
The best house in Orlando
I stayed in this house for 45 days. I like the swimming pool and the play room. the rooms were big and clean. I liked everything in this house. we enjoyed staying with our family.
Our lovely stay....July 2017
The home was very comfortable and clean. Everything was at our fingertips. Best equipped home we have ever stayed at..and we've been doing this for years. Will definitely stay here again and recommend to others.
Our extended family of 8 was in the central Florida area for a memorial service. We had a wonderful time and the house met every need. The grand-kids (age 7 and 9) and adults loved the pool and spent many hours in it. They also enjoyed the game room. The home was furnished with everything we could need. The location was very convenient to all the areas (Disney, Gulf coast and Lake Wales) we visited while here. I would definitely recommend this rental.
Great vacation stay!
This home had everything we could possibly need for our vacation! The pool table and air hockey helped entertain the grandkids when it was raining (which it did rain, every day we were there). We enjoyed the pool when we could, even though we didn't pay extra to have it heated. It was pretty cold with the rain!! There were plenty of towels, pots and pans, and very comfortable beds! The only thing I could possible suggest would be a coffee maker that shuts off automatically (so it isn't left on all day by those of us who are used to auto shutoff - I ALMOST forgot it!). This isn't a complaint, just an observation, and the dishwasher dispenser doesn't open to dispense the detergent tablet, so you have to just drop it in the bottom of the dishwasher. All in all it is a wonderful vacation home and I hope to stay there again!
