Nice Place

  • 4 of 5

Let me begin by saying that Rick has a lovely vacation home. The house is spacious and well-supplied, except for a lack of teaspoons. We found it very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The price was reasonable and my security deposit was returned very promptly. I would love to give it a 5-star rating but I am afraid that is reserved for perfection, and our stay at Rick’s was not perfect.

For one thing we were not warned that there is a landing about two steps after you enter the house with a drop of about six inches. I was the first to enter, did not see the drop and fell on my face, hitting my head on one of the heavy iron chairs at the dining room table located close to the entrance. Fortunately, I think I suffered only a minor concussion, a bloody ear and slight bruise to my abdominal wall. I think some warning, or perhaps something to indicate the edge of the landing, would be most helpful.

We were also not told that we were expected to remove and replace the pool cover every time we used the pool. Not a big deal, but the listing says the home is “suitable for the elderly and infirm.” We are not infirm, but we are all in our seventies and removing and replacing the pool cover was a pain.

There were no instructions about operating the TV so turning it off and on and changing the channels was always an adventure. Add to this the fact that there was no DVD player, and we brought along some old movies we hoped to watch. But in fairness there was no mention of a DVD player in the listing.

Although it’s not a house-related point, there was a dog in the neighborhood that was constantly barking – sometimes all day and all night. It’s certainly not your fault and a doubt there is anything you can do about it, but it was a major annoyance.

All this lessened our enjoyment of this otherwise lovely home.

Owner's Response: Thank you, I look forward to any constructive criticism of my home to enable me to make any improvements that are necessary to make your stay as safe and relaxing as possible. As a result of your feedback it is my intention to improve the following: • A warning of the landing will be included in the instructions that I send out to all future guests prior to their arrival. • Instructions on how to use the television will be included in the information book. • I think putting a DVD player in the home is an excellent idea. I will also add 1 Netflix account. • The lack of teaspoons will be addressed. • The pool is supplied with a pool roller and cover. It states in the information book that it is advisable that when the pool is not in use it is put on to help keep the water warmer during the winter months, however, it's not essential. • The home is located in a very friendly residential neighborhood. I have had no feedback from previous guests informing me about a dog barking, however, I will certainly monitor the situation. Once again, thank you for your very constructive review.

It was everything we hoped it would be!

  • 5 of 5

Well, what can I say - this Villa had everything and more.

Lets start with us, we are British and have been to Kissimmee 5 previous times, each time in a Villa but all owned by Brits - this was the first one we have rented direct from an owner in the states so a little nervous...

We shouldn't have been, Rick was there at every step and made everything easy.

Firstly the location - this was ideal for us, just off the 192 (the main street in Kissimmee with all the restaurants) it took about 5 mins to get to Walmart/Target in the car and if we went out in a taxi it was around $15 dollars to the restaurant. With no traffic we were at Epcot in about 11 mins from leaving the villa.

Next the Villa itself, very clean and comfortable with 4 bedrooms but the main 2 were very big and the same shape and size with a walk in shower, walk in wardrobe, huge TV, cable, Bathtub, the ground floor opened onto the pool area and the upstairs one opened onto the American pool table - beds were huge (much bigger than ours) and so comfy.

There`s a house phone there you can ring taxis and takeaways on and there`s also pool towels available which saves you having to bring your own.

The internet (having 2 children it`s a must) is supafast and we could all stream on it at the same time without any problems, there was a huge washing machine, dryer, air con, TV and cable in every room including the American pool table area.

On a separate note, the American pool table is on the landing next to the upstairs main bedroom and its a full size table - when we have stayed in other villas the "games room" tends to be in the garage which isn't covered by the air con so it`s gets too hot to go in there - this wasn't the case and we had family games of Killer etc most nights.

The pool was the best pool we`ve had as it had a proper deep end and a light which meant my children could stay in the pool when it got dark till very late - there was a full size 6 seater Hot tub there also which was great for the adults as we relaxed, had a beer and watched the kids in the pool - there was an large outdoor bbq there as well (gas) but we never used it - restaurants or takeaways for us...

Finally we all agreed that this was the best Villa we have stayed in out of all 6 and we will definitely be going back to this one next time we go - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone - the best bits were - cleanliness, location, internet, pool area, hot tub, pool table and comfort.

Very nice place and clean! I'm a germaphob so cleanliness is important to me and this home is clean. Rick is a great guy to deal with. As with any rental home please check the washer before using for pens, markers or just anything in case something is left in there.

Daughter's 7th birthday in Florida

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this great property in November of 2015 for our daughter's 7th birthday celebration in Florida. Rick (the owner) made everything easy for us and promptly replied to any question I had (and I had a lot). It was better than we expected which surprised me as I am extremely picky and detail oriented!

Rick provided us with instructions and a map of how to get to the property from the airport and a list of things to do in Florida and links to the websites of the attractions he mentioned in his email. Upon arrival there was a happy birthday balloon for my daughter, she was thrilled as was I.

A detailed book of property info and instructions was easily found as well. The property was extremely clean and well maintained and is so close to Disney World it made the 10-15 minute drive (with traffic) to get there seem like nothing. Having our own pool, hot tub and a quiet place to wind down was great too!

We were able to pack light as there was a new washer and dryer on the property at our disposal, so 10 days worth of clothing was not necessary. We had our 14 month old son with us and to our delight there was a highchair and stroller for us to use and barbecuing steaks after a long day at Disney or Gatorland was a great option! We WILL be going back there as soon as we can! We enjoyed every minute!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with 4 teenagers to celebrate their recent high school graduation. The property was exactly as described, and Rick could not have been more helpful and easy to reach. While there, we visited Universal Studios, Disney, and Sea World. Each location was no more than a 30 minute drive, and it would have been less if there hadn't been heavy traffic. The house is also very close to several grocery/convenience stores. I highly recommend this property and would stay here again. Thanks, Rick, for helping us make some great memories before the kids went off to college!

Perfect location, Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

All we can say is, "Amazing!" This home has a great location, as we spent 5 days at the Disney parks, a day at Gatorland, a day at Clearwater beach, and an evening Yankees spring training game in Tampa. Rick (owner) was great to deal with and easily contacted. The kids really enjoyed the heated pool while we relaxed in the hot tub. The supplied pool towels near the back door is a really nice touch. All of the rooms have big flat screen TV's with cable and the wifi worked perfectly. The home has all of the appliances that anyone should want or need. It definately exceeds our expectations. The entire property was very clean and well kept. We hope to stay here again soon.
