GREAT VACATION HOME!!!
Overall the stay at this home was very nice, there were a few small issues that arose upon Check-in with the keypad to enter the house, however I contacted the owner and he said that he will have the management to look into it so that no other renters will have that problem in the future! Now on to the house, this home was quite SPACIOUS and had more than enough room for me and my family, let me tell you that the kitchen was AMAZING, I love open floor plan typed homes and this one was great!!! The rooms were nice and spacious, and the master bath was quite spacious as well all the things we love in a home! My kids ADORED the pool so much they wanted to get in EVERYDAY! Only because I am a very picky (OCD) type person, I noticed a few cosmetic issues that could be corrected, but other than that the home was very nice!!!!
Home is also close to local grocery store and a 24 hr Walmart, gas and pharmacy which is always a plus!
Neil the owner was very quick to respond to all of my messages which I really appreciated! I would definitely rent from this owner again if I’m ever in Florida again!!!
Home and property were absolutely beautiful. Would deffinately rent again. Plenty of room for our big family. Pool was refreashing. Couldn't keep the kids out.
We loved it! Would definitely stay here again!
Awesome is music to my ears. Many thanks Kevin.
Excellent clean home in a great location
Had a great holiday with my family :)
This home is beautiful and well maintained. Very spacious and clean.
Was in contact with owner with minor issues and has responded immediately. All information for contact with management is provided, if needed, once you gain entrance into this beautiful home. Beds were comfortable and had plenty of bedding and towels. I would recommend this home to anyone and hope to revisit the Orlando area. Thank you for a wonderful home for our vacation.
Marie thanks for being wonderful guests, so pleased to hear that you found the home spacious and clean. Thanks for the 5 star review and do come back to Orlando soon, you will be most welcome.
Really nice home
We had a really great time at the house. It was exactly like the pictures. Very clean and spacious. The driving distance was not to far from shopping centers. It was a home away from home. Looking forward to staying here again.
Allan thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review and so pleased to hear you liked the house especially the "clean and spacious" part. I look forward to welcoming you again.
Very clean and spacious
The house was very clean and spacious. My only issues were thermostat was locked at 72 degrees which made for hot nights. Also, make sure you call to confirm door code, gate code, and alarm code. Door code was missing a number, never got gate code, and was never able to get alarm to work. After driving 18 hours the last thing you want is to have issues getting into the property.
Evelyn glad to hear that you found the house spacious as I don't think the photos properly relay it's size. Cleanliness is also my number one priority.
With regards to the difficulty accessing the house, as is often the case there are two sides to the story. I am going to prefix my response by stating that I have been letting vacation homes in the Disney area for over 18 years across 36 homes so we have helped tens of thousands of guests have an awesome vacation including 99.99% of them getting easy access to the home. We send out a full "Arrival Information Pack" including door code, gate code, and local management company details 2 weeks before the check-in date. NEVER before in all the thousands of times have I had the situation where I get a call in the middle of the night saying that the guest "took a photo of the documentation" and they cannot enter the house. If you only take a photo of part of the document omitting the last digit of the door access code, and the gate code, and local management company details it goes without saying that you will have access problems!!! If I was driving for 18 hours and arriving late I certainly would not rely on a partial photo and would have prepared my access with more diligence.
