P.S. Please note that, if you travel with kids, it is your responsibility to supervise them as the pool it is deep enough.
The listing, location, layout and amenities of the property was exactly as described. The property was clean and well maintained. The owner of the property and the manager provided excellent customer service very caring friendly and professional. When we first arrived at the property it was like a second home. The home was very clean, very affordable, the bedrooms were very spacious, and I cannot say enough nice things about this home. The backyard and the pool area was very nice and spacious. I would definitely recommend this vacation home to anyone who is looking for a second home. I just want to take the time to say thank you to the owners and the manager. They were very thoughtful and caring, also anytime I called the owner or the manager they were very quick to respond to my needs and concerns.
However, upon arrival to the property we realized it's in a older neighborhood than we initially thought. When we went into the house it was clean. Some of the tiles on the floor were cracked and some that have been repaired in the restrooms etc were done by anyone who wanted to try as they were mismatched and fit ill. The bedrooms closest to the main restroom did not have lights on the ceilings and the ceiling fans did not work at all. The master bath has a stand up shower that was clogged so as we are showering the water just filled up. There is no vent in either restroom. The screens on the master bathroom were broken and the crank to open the window was not there so there was no way to open the bathroom window either, causing it to get extremely hot in there while showering. The sofas are black leather and not what is depicted in the photos. They are more of a futon style and very hard at that. There was another room in the house but it was locked and we had no access to it. Although it states linens are provided what they mean is they leave you many many sheets but only one thin throw blanket on each bed. These blankets sucked they left little blue fuzz balls EVERYWHERE, they are so thin that I had to go buy blankets to keep warm. It's been almost a week since I have returned home and washed everything and the blue fuzz is still on our stuff. When they say towels provided what they mean is they leave exactly one towel per person staying in the home and no washcloths whatsoever. The dining room states it seats 8 people but, the table only seats 4. Now, there is a small table in the kitchen near the window that seats 2. Apparently lizards etc just make their way in the house all the time. I put numerous lizards, salamanders outside and kept finding them inside. The outside grill hadn't been cleaned in quite some time. The yard really needs to be maintained. Grass needed to be cut, it just looks rough. The amount that we paid was a little steep considering the flaws in this home. Also I could understand having to pay a deposit on the home if it were in excellent condition but with all that was wrong with it the deposit was kinda ridiculous. We stayed 15 minutes from Disney the week before and rented a 4 bedroom 3.5 bath town home that slept 10 people, with a pool/water slides etc and paid less money than this home. You guys should reevaluate your rates and get rid of that deposit.
We started off enjoying our stay at this home. For the price it was a good home at first. By day number 3 the pool was unusable. There were hundreds of dead flies and debris in the pool. I tried contacting the owner after spending a long time trying to clean it myself. The Branches, twigs, and leaves did not bother me, as I would expect that in any pool. The real problem was that the filter was not working, and the pool was unusable. After many attempts to reach the owner, they returned my calls. They were apologetic but they didn't help me at all. In addition to the hundreds of dead flies, by day 4, there were hundreds of live tadpole (or some sort of fish), swimming in the pool! I was quite annoyed and disappointed, as the main reason we chose this home was for the pool. I even contacted the owners before the trip to make certain the pool would be clean/usable. After the trip I tried contacting the owners several times about some sort of reimbursement. They have ignored my several attempts to contact them. Inside the home was clean and nice, nothing fancy, but for the price it was good. Some bugs, but nothing too bad. I would say to rent this home, ONLY if you don't care about using the pool.
I want to start with a positive note: the owners are really friendly and respond quickly to any questions. Also, the location of the house is very good.
The house itself was very dissapointing, it really needs to be renovated. The kitchen, floors and swimming pool were really dirty. There was dog poop on the stairs and the garden looked like a warzone.
We will not go back!!
House was very clean and bug free. Three nice bedrooms with comfortable beds. Great swimming pool. Could use a liitle more storage for clothes and more dishes and kitchen utensils . Great location for us. Would book again.
Our family really enjoyed this home.. the kids took advantage of the pool we had a great 4th of July grilling and swimming. If you're looking for a clean affordable home away from home this is the place to go to. The owner was accessible and if we needed anything he was sure to respond! Definitely renting it out for our next vacation.
