Burnell and Tracey Loewen purchased this villa in 2011
Having travelled to the area a few times, we fell in love with the area. We find the people friendly and welcoming. We were looking for a place to spend more time when we get away from our cold winters. Although we both work full time, we are getting to a point where we can spend more and more time away from the cold weather in the winter. This has provided us with that opportunity.
The property is quiet. The wooded area behind keeps you away from the noise of the street traffic. I really like that there is space to get together as a family or those moments when you just need a little space after a long day. Sitting on the balcony in the morning with a cup of coffee is really a great way to ease into the day.
Normally I don’t write reviews, it’s not something I like to do, in this case I felt I needed to thank the owners of the house that we made our home, the house is comfy and you will have all your commodities that you normally have at home, residence is in a nice location and if you have a rental car everything will be close by, on the other hand there are minor, really minor thing to fix there, in our broader view of my family vacation, those minor things don’t even get notice. All and all, my family and I will re-rent this nice house and make it once more our home for our next vacation.
Looking forward for the next trip.
Let's talk about Magical Memories at Disney.
We stayed from Feb 10 - Feb 15 2016 as our family visited Universal Studios of Orlando. We paid less than $100 / night for the 3 bedroom 2 bathroom condo. Would we stay there again at the price? Absolutely! It's really a matter or price vs expectations or more specifically what you expect at a certain price point.
Is this the most beautiful and updated condo in the history of the world? Absolutely not. There are some flaws for sure, but they are minor and paying about the same as I would for a hotel room with 2 beds and getting an entire condo makes these flaws pretty minor in my opinion. Yes there's some scratches on the floor. Yes, the comforters on the bed could stand to be replaced. Yes the bed in the master squeaks more than it probably should. Yes the remotes are missing the battery covers for the TVs. Yes we saw a stray tiny ant or two. (It's central Florida for goodness sake....I squashed them and went about my business) These are among the things you could find "wrong" with the unit. But the bottom line for me is that the unit was clean, comfortable and an excellent value for us.
The pictures on homeaway are representative of what you are getting. It's conveniently located to major attractions (Universal, Disney, Medievil Times etc) and shopping restaurants etc. The owners while not local are responsive to inquires over email / homeway's messaging system.
If this unit were priced higher than maybe those "flaws" would be enough to not recommend it. But as long as the owners continue to rent the unit at a value price then I absolutely would stay there again. And if you are renting an entire condo for what you would pay for a middle of the road hotel room with one king bed, a mini fridge and microwave and expecting it to have no minor flaws then the problem is not with the unit, the problem is with unrealistic expectations.
So think about what you value and either stay here comfortably and save some cash, or shell out twice as much to make sure there's battery covers on the remotes and brand new tile in the bathroom. For me the choice is easy. If we go back to Orlando in the future, I will be checking availability for this unit.
The condo itself needs updating. Friends stayed in the same model in a different unit, theirs was completely updated. We paid the same amount. Wish they would have give us a list of things we needed to provide - garbage bags, dish soap, toilet paper, etc. Just things I didn't think of bringing, so we we were at target at 11:45pm. The night we got in I noticed tiny bugs crawling on the kitchen counter. I mentioned them when we dropped the registration paperwork off, (which they stated was a legal mater, but our friends didn't need to submit that information...) the management office, which was not right there on the property which was inconvenient, offered to send someone out, I declined since we were heading out for the day. Later in the week there were more issues, the volume on the main TV did not work, several light bulbs were out and there were more bugs, including a dead earwig in my daughters bedroom and what I believe was a roach on the stove top. I called to ask someone to come out they refused to send someone out side of 9-5 hours. I refused to let them enter the property while I was gone. The lady told me she would email the maintenance people with my cell number no one ever called.
The bar in the slider door off the bedroom, had obvious damage due to someone attempting to get in. We were told not to lower the thermostat below 72. It was hot and humid, 72 was not cool enough when we got home. The people above us let their kids run around all night and it even woke up my daughter. We needed to wash and dry all towels and sheets before we left at 10am. So that changed our departure plan. I emailed the owners while we were there and STILL have not heard back from them. I'm very disappointed in our first experience. Obviously they only wanted my money.
The listing description was not accurate. The house was described as nonsmoking but it smelled horribly of smoke when we arrived. After much airing and deodorizing, it still smelled of smoke when we left 3 days later. The house was dirty - some of the silverware in the drawer was dirty, floor mats were dirty, window and door tracks were dirty, patio furniture was dirty. Several things were broken/damaged - the patio door screen kept coming off the track and had a hole in the screen, a window screen was ripped and flapping in the wind, trim on bathroom and kitchen drawers/cupboards was falling off. The bedroom furniture looked old and outdated. The master bathroom was very outdated and old looking. Overall, this house was an unpleasant experience and we were very glad to leave.
This was the first time to rent a condo. I liked the idea because it gave the kids some place to play a little in the morning and night and it wasn't just a bedroom like at motels. When we arrived it was late so we just unloaded the car and went to bed. In the morning we came out to the kitchen and there were ants so we called the number they had and they said they would be right out. Four days later and still had ants. The letter on the bar said all had been inspected and was clean. So I went to make coffee, the pot was dirty so didn't feel like I could use anything because it was not clean. Didn't use the stove at all or the dishwasher. The micro wave did work. We didn't eat any meals there except cereal in the morning. The outside had parts of watermelons under the stairs, plastic, paper and cans. So not clean.
I guess one thing I learned is if you are going to rent make sure the owners live in the same state and not out of the country, so they can check on things themselves. The owners really don't have any idea if they can trust the people who are suppose to be taking care of the place. We were ask to strip the beds and start the wash, which we did.
The hair dryer in the master bedroom didn't work and the door had been broken into, which didn't make us feel safe either. So we put a chair against the door every night.
All in all if I did rent a condo again it would not be from these people because they live to far away to make sure what they say about their condo is true. They did try to help us get a floor unit so that we could have an easier time if the children were sleeping to get them in without walking up stairs.
Wish I could have written a better review.
This was the first time we rented a home/house instead of staying in a hotel. this house was worth renting it. We felt at home in the house and every day it was nice to come home to a house instead of a hotel.
The house was clean and nice when we received it. it had EVERYTHING and more that a person or family needs when they rent a house. Close to a lot of restaurants and supermarkets. whatever you want to eat it's close by.
Close to Disney parks and universal if you have a car. if you use the bus it will take you 2.5 to 3 hours to reach at the park. I would recommend to use a car, because it's easier and faster, but if you don't have a car you can always use the lynx bus service. We traveled by bus and somedays by car.
The maintaince service was quick an efficient.
The owners are very kind and we had a good communication!
all by all I would recommend this house
I will definitely recommend this house and if I had to visit Kissimmee again I wouldn't doubt to rent this house!
