Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved your place. It was spotless and so welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed coming back to the house after long days at the parks. I wouldn't hesitate to rent again should we ever plan to go back to Florida.

This home by far is the worst I have ever stayed at in the area. I'm surprised there are any good reviews because honestly there are places to stay that are 1000 times better than this in the same price range. I've been coming to Orlando for years and never any issues. I chose this home for the convenience of the pool/location.

This home needs a serious update. I guess maybe the owner doesn't care since its up for sale.

Beach towels - need to be thrown away. They are either stained with ketchup or blood.

Bath towels were once white many many years ago. Now they are a dingy greenish grey. You can use them as a rag.

Owner should invest in some new towels.

Thank goodness we had our own towels.

Vertical blinds on the sliding doors are hanging on for dear life with electrical tape.

It was the "ghetto" home when you put the lights on with missing verticals.

Tvs in the smaller upstairs bedrooms do not work. One the screen had lines and the other one couldn't put the cable on.

Master bedroom AC vent made noise.

Master bath medal door rod in the shower is on its last string. I almost fell getting out opening the door.

Pool never used. It was dingy and dirty.

We arrived on Monday and last time it was cleaned was last Thursday. I called the number for the managing company and left Robert and Christine a message on Tuesday. This is what their reply was.

"This is the managing company in reference to your message about the pool. We tried to leave a message but your box is full. The pool is cleaned on a weekly basis. It was cleaned last Thursday and is scheduled for this Thursday. Please leave the lanai door unlocked. Should you require service sooner please let us know and we can schedule it for an additional charge of $50.00 dollars. Enjoy your stay"

Why should I have to pay $50 to clean the dirty pool????!!!

I called them back and emailed them and they never got back to me.

We came back from the park on Thursday and guess what? The pool was not cleaned. I called the owner Shawn and finally spoke to him to explain the above issues and sent him photos of everything and he confirmed via text he received all the photos. He told me he would get back to me Friday morning and I have never heard back from him.

Shawn's reply via text

Got them. Thank you I will be back in touch in the morning.

Pool was finally "cleaned" Friday.

Do yourself a favor don't stay here.

I wish I can post photos of how gross the above was.

Owner's Response: It is unfortunate that you were unhappy with your stay. Im very proud of the work that our team does, as proven by the nearly all perfect reviewsover the last three years of rentals that we have had. Our property is the HIGHEST rated and reviewed property in all on Encantada on VRBO as anyone can research and see for themselves. It was our teams decision that the renter was merely trying everything possible to obtain a refund/discount for her stay, as i think is also apparent in her review above. The disrespectful, and often nasty nature in which she communicated with our team was completely out of line and would not be tolerated.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, great value and clean home! Home was comfortable and had everything we needed. The location can't be beat with easy access to Disney Parks, grocery, dining, shopping and the airport. The clubhouse was beautiful with the pools, restaurant, bar and the concierge was super helpful to purchase our tickets before going to the parks. Would definitely recommend and will book again! :)

Overall good property, but needs to be maintained better!

  • 3 of 5

I will start out by saying I lived in Central Florida for several years and have rented two other properties in Encantada Resort prior to this stay. With that being said I was a little disappointed with this property. I had to kill a cockroach nearly every night in the master bathroom and if you read the property book on the kitchen counter the maintenance company uses the fact that it is FL as an excuse, but I think this is unacceptable. Also, the carpets and rugs were dirty and I discovered the problem was a clogged vacuum inside the property. I cleaned out the vacuum and there was an entire grocery bag full of trash removed from the vacuum. After that the vacuum cleaner worked great. Robert, the person who maintains the property, took responsibility for the vacuum and was quick to respond to any needs. The pots and pans are in terrible condition; in fact they are Teflon which has been scrapped by metal utensils in the past which can cause severe medical issues if continuously used, so we bought a new stainless steel pot and a cookie sheet for all our cooking needs and left it in the villa for future use. The villa remains hot upstairs, due to the 75 degree requirement, so I also bought a pedestal fan (also left in the villa) for the master bedroom and utilized the two box fans for the other rooms. If the pots and pans were replaced and the villa was better maintained, to include a higher level of cleanliness, this would be a fantastic property.

Super clean, very comfortable beds all around great vacation home. Encantada is very well located, close to Disney, shopping and great restaurants. Shawn is great to work with, I would recommend this townhouse to anyone. This has been the second time I've rented this townhouse and would do so again.

Spacious and neat

  • 4 of 5

Our family, 2 adults and 2 teenagers had a good stay at Pennington Place. The house was clean, well equipped and all appliances worked well. We liked the community center with larger pools and gym a lot. The location is good, easy to drive to Disney and good shopping and dining near by.

We had plenty of room and larger families will have no problem with space in the house.
