My family has stayed in this home 3 times. Previously I have thought of this as a 5 star stay. However this time things were a little different. There had been a water leak in the garage ceiling prior to our arrival. This had been repaired, but the game room area in the garage had a strong musty smell. The smell reduced a little each day, but not the point that my family wanted to use the game room. Then there were the lizards. There were a large number of lizards outside (some had been observed during previous rentals of this house but not to the extent that we saw this time) and we found two lizards in the enclosed pool area both of which we removed to the outside. One lizard was caught in the house and released at the road. There was also a very large (2.5 inch) bug caught in the house and disposed of. This is not our previous experience with this house. This may in part be related to the house next door that is apparently not being occupied and had grass that was knee high in some places. I would note that the other houses on the street were occupied with neat and well kept yards with lawn watering systems, as was the yard at the house that we stayed in. I would also note that we did not report the problems to the HomeAway rental company, since only the lizards in the pool area were discovered during the first two days and we did not want to have exterminators or lose pool access while we were there.
Even with the problems that we encountered this time, I still gave the house 3 stars for this trip since the house itself is nice and has a good layout. The house layout and furnishings are exactly as described in the rental info page online. The location is also very nice.
We have rented several homes for our vacations and this one was one of the best! Very clean, well stocked and large enough for my family of five to spread out and enjoy their vacation. The pool was a huge hit with all of us and my kids never went one day without swimming, even after a full day at the amusement parks. The location of the home was great! Short, easy drive to Disney World and maybe 20 minutes to Sea World. The amenities close by were a big hit as well. Great grocery stores, restaurants and shopping less than 3 minutes away. The house was very easy to find and in a quiet neighborhood. The price was way cheaper than a hotel for 7 days and you can't beat a 4 bedroom home with it's own pool instead of one cramped hotel room. We loved it! The rental process was smooth and the company communicated well and was easy to work with. Overall great week in Florida!!!
Positive: I took my family and extended family on vacation to Disney. This house was perfect as far as location to the parks, grocery stores, restaurants, and activities. All of these were minutes from the house or right around the corner. Easy access to and from the House. Everything was in good condition and the pool was perfect each day after the parks.
The only thing that I will suggest that might need updating or fixed are the bedrooms with the Twin beds. We gave the kids these rooms and they complained that the mattresses were not comfortable and choose to sleep on the couches downstairs after a few nights. The other thing that needs to be checked is the hot-tub. We could not find a heating Gage to adjust the temperature. The temperature was the same temp as the pool. At night we couldn't take advantage of jumping in the hot tub. This was minimal in the grand scheme of things but I just wanted it to be noted.
For this shopping at the grocery store for lunches/dinners for their stay please keep this in mind: Down the road is a grocery store called the " Marketplace". Nothing is on sale and the prices are high. About a mile down the road from that store is a grocery store called "Publix" Prices were much better and many items where on sale at affordable prices.
We arrived on a Tuesday afternoon and after a brief rain storm that evening the roof began to leak in the game room, the dining room window leaked, and the kitchen roof leaked creating a puddle on the tile floor which unfortunately made it hard to see and I slipped injuring myself. I called immediately upon noticing the water damage, and the problem was still not rectified 6 days later when we left. Upon arriving home, I called to follow up on the incident to make sure the repairs were made before a child slipped on the tile floor in the future only to receive multiple responses of we will let the manger know to contact you in reference, which they never did. The final response I received from them was to contact their attorney which I did. He was very receptive to the problem and unaware of the situation. He assured me that he would follow up, I kept in touch with the attorney and he wrote back that he unfortunately had no response. I feel VRBO would do better by mandating that affiliates that manage the properties that they have listed on their website provide reputable customer service rather then no response from management.
My family enjoyed the house during our recent Disney trip. A couple of the twin beds were not comfortable, but after a day at the park, sleep came anyway. We would stay here again.
This was the first time we have ever rented a home rather than staying in a hotel. I will never do it any other way again!! The house was spotless when we arrived and just like it was advertised on VRBO.com. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and all the space it provided. The pool was nice and warm, our only regret is that the week went too fast and we didn't use it as much as we'd hoped. The 2 sliding doors leading out to the pool are equipped with an alarm that was very easy to use. If we would have had young children, this feature would have been priceless! Such a pleasure to have the privacy and ease of a private home. The only thing I noticed missing was a cutting board in the kitchen, a problem easily remedied! The location was fantastic in a quiet neighborhood, yet was only minutes to multiple popular restaurants. It took us about 5 minutes to get into Disney World and we were about 20 minutes from Sea World....awesome! The rental company staff was very easy to work with and made the whole process effortless. We will definitely be back.
