Overall the Villa met our needs in terms of location and size. However I felt it lacked some attention to detail e.g lack of sufficient pool towels, missing linen in some of the bedrooms and very limited plastic tableware for use around the pool. The development is nicely maintained and the villa is within walking distance of the Oasis club. However we found the development noisy at times particularly at night which wasn't great with 3 young children.
Postives:The home was in great condition and beautifully decorated
Pool is clean and well maintained
Neighborhood and amenities are well taken care of and add value to the home
The Clubhouse was an unexpected treat with the lazy river, water park, fitness center, volleyball, jacuzzi, etc. you didn't have to leave the property to
have an enjoyable time.
Negatives: Maintenance team is not available on weekends
Contact info for Maintenance team is invalid
Trash was not picked up(had to place a complaint to the main office on property)
We have to confess that the home is really good and just perfect to a family or 2. The fine decoration and the details make a difference. I definitely will come back and recommend this home. It's really worthy.
When I stayed at this home in 2014 the Oasis club was not ready yet, so I come back again to enjoy not only the club but mainly the home that is really good, comfortable and very well decorated. The home was just exactly as the first time, very clean and smelling like a brand new home. Definitely I recommend this home and specially now that Oasis and everything is working.
This feels more like a large property management business doing things on a tight budget than a true VRBO. Up-side: the house was large and the beds very comfortable. Other than that, everything else is just a bit off. You have to buy insurance for "intentional damage". This may be due to the fact that a lot of renters in this neighborhood are construction workers working on the hundreds of houses being built in Champions Gate, or maybe spring breakers have caused trouble. The garage door has no opener. The wiring is there, but no motor, and the door is probably too heavy for some renters. Heating the pool costs extra, and is very expensive. The vertical blinds fell off one by one. We called maintenance 4 or 5 times, and he was very responsive, but I do not wish his job on anyone. There were no toiletries or kitchen supplies except one dishwasher soap. The worst: one of the beds was not made up. There were sheets folded on the dresser with blood on them and the mattress cover that was on the bed had blood. We removed the cover and were told where to find clean sheets, but really? There are thermostat rules, toilet rules and outdoor grill rules that sound more like cheap motel than vacation rental.
The home itself is nice. Well decorated with comfortable beds. It was very easy to find and only takes 20 minutes to get to the parks. Our main problem was with the management company. We requested and paid extra for a baby gate and pack and play that we were told would be there upon our arrival. Of course they were not there. After a small argument with the management company about whether or not they had been delivered (they INSISTED that they were), it was discovered they were delivered to the wrong house. Luckily it was right down the street so we just went down there and picked up the pack and play (with no sheets except twin size) since no gate was there. Another phone call later, the say they can't do anything about it that night since it was now almost 8. Gate and new pack and play sheets were delivered in the morning after we left for the park. Lights inside the pool didn't work so it was almost pitch black out there. Watch your feet because the fire ants are everywhere near the front door and driveway. My 2 year old was lucky enough to discover them...they were inside her sneakers before I realized and bit her up. Hives and 2 doses of benadryl later she was on the mend. Of course the management company said this was an HOA issue and not theirs but they would "let them know". Yeah.....sure. We carried the babies to the car the rest of the time. Lastly, if you like to fall alseep with a TV on, you'll be sleeping on the couch or in the loft since there are no TVs in any of the bedrooms except for 1 of the twin bed rooms. Like I said, house is nice, but owners need to rethink their choice of management company or they are going to lose renters.
