Needs a lot of work. Nice house but definitely out of date. Broken windows, broken glass table. Pull out couch had mildew.
Very spacious with plenty of room
There was plenty of room for our 3 families. We had a great time and it was worth the money that we were charged. All supplies needed we're available when we got there. Pool was clean. House was clean but could use some repairs. A few things are broken; screen door, closet doors, glass missing out of table and tarp on roof.
Misleading discription and needs LOTS of attention.
This house is anything BUT luxurious. Here are few of my thoughts on what needs attention. The front door drags on the concrete. It was standing open when we arrived. The icemaker does not work--we had to buy ice trays to have ice for our beverages. The garage and family room had burned out bulbs--no lighting--the whole house is very dark. The description says it would be ideal for elderly and disabled persons. Beware, all bedrooms are upstairs--17 steep stairs. Also, there is not any information in the house to explain how to hook up to the wifi. We called the number provided, but NEVER received a call back. My husband was able to figure it out, but some would not. The cushions on the patio furniture needs replaced. The shower curtain in the master bath does not go to the floor. Water runs everywhere. I tried to adjust the rod, but the rubber tips on the rod were rotted out. With that all being said, my number one complaint would be the carpet. It is VERY stained and appears dirty though out the WHOLE house. I did not walk barefoot! Probably some of my other complaints would have been easier to live with, had the carpet been clean. We travel most winters and have rented quite a few homes, this is one I would not have been able to stay in more than a week. I can tell his house was probably very nice at one time, but it truly needs some cleaning, replacing and repairs.
Property Not well Managed
The pool was in need of maintenance. The water was not clear at all. The house is big but is in need of maintenance (blinds are broken, specially the ones in the main bathroom, the neighbor has a chair right in front of the window for his pleasure) and bedding upgrades. The property owner doesn’t live in country. I am not sure who manages this property. There ain’t doing a good job. The property is on a good location but be aware of tolls. If you are going for a place to relax with a nice pool this is not the place. If you are looking for a place for big family or big group to get the most of room a board where you are going to visit the Disney attractions etc.. then this the place.
Too much ants
The house was ok; however, ants were everywhere when we arrived. We have to leave early because our kids were complaining. I would not recommend this house to anyone unless they take care of the ants.
Unfortunately despite my home having pest control - Florida has a tropical climate and sandy soil, which makes it almost impossible to stop every infestation. My management and I were unaware of any ants! .... If any insects appear - no problem! My home is fully covered for any type of pest issues and my management´s responses are almost immediate! My management is very reliable and will be happy to solve any issue as soon as possible - naturally if they are told about it.
Better than a hotel but could use a little TLC
When we arrived the property managers were buying new sheets and pillows and towles, a nice touch, except that the queen bed's sheets were really cheap... Could really use an over haul to paint walls and ceilings instead of just patching. There was a still a tear in the sofa seat. Queen bed was hard but not unbearable. Could really use more small waste baskets, like in every bedroom and bathroom would be nice. Knives and can opener were a joke! But other than that we had everything we needed to make several dinners, breakfasts and lunches. Very close to everything. Could really use bigger fans for each bedroom upstairs!! It got very warm!! Definitely not a bad experience, but with a little help could be really nice! Doesn't seem like someone really cares, burned out lights over dining table, water stains on ceiling. Pool was very nice and private. A lot of stairs- elderly beware, but my 2 year old had a blast :) Cocoa beach is a great place to visit! Bring a roll or 2 of quarters for tolls! Great restaurant Soco at Thornton Park!
As these guests mentioned - my management constantly renew items etc. Unfortunetely, there are always guests that just don´t take care of other people´s merchandise...or just take things back home...My reliable management will attend to these issues. I must say - I don´t know why people have to take a dig like "no on cares" when they actually don´t know what goes on day to day. I am happy to hear that these guests noticed - that "The Meadow Woods Home" is really a nice place!

Golf: To all Golf players! The vacation home has a top location to several Golf Courses. You will surely find your 'favorite' place, too. My management now uses 'Kissimmee Guest Services' for all their discounts on tickets and other things such as golf. Just mention you are staying in a '----' (I´ll give you the name) rental property and they will give you a discount. They have various offers. I`d give you a tel.no. , which you could call - in advance - to find out their rates.
