This beautiful 4 bedroom, 2 full bathroom pool home is centrally located in a quiet neighborhood in Winter Haven, FL. It is close to shops and restaurants. It is great for Disney vacations, corporate housing, holidays, Polk State College, or just to relax by your private pool in sunny Florida. The home was purchased in 2007 and remodeled. It has a game room which includes a regulation size billiards table, a poker table, and a digital basketball game. There are also some board games in the game room. It has a nice large screened porch overlooking a large pool that has a pool guard for added security of children and there is a new vinyl privacy fence around the back perimeter of the back yard for a more intimate setting. As you enter the home you are greeted by a formal living and dining room. The updated kitchen has granite counter tops and a breakfast bar/see through area so that the chef is not left out of the fun. Opposite the formal living room is the game room. The home has updated furniture including a 50 inch flat screen in the living room. The great thing about Winter Haven is you are between Orlando and Tampa. There are close to 50 attractions less than an hour drive from this home. The main attraction which is Disney World is 32 miles away. The majority of other attractions are the same vicinity. Busch Gardens which is in Tampa is 50 miles away. Last but certainly not least is our own LegoLand which is 3 miles from this home.
This house is way over priced for what it is. It is old, carpets need to be replaced. pots and pans must have come from a garage sale. the pool is old and leaks, I spent more time cleaning the bugs and leaves out of it than swimming.
I reserved this house for a family get together between Xmas and New Year's. Since my family grew up in Winter Haven and now are spread out in other areas, we chose this spot to spend a whole week together. Hence we spent more time in the house than probably a normal tourist family would. Since I am an equal reviewer I will give the pros and cons of this rental.
First the Pros - Very convenient if you want to go to Legoland (about five minutes away). Not bad to Orlando or Tampa either (about and hour). Lots of cool games for kids abound including a pool table, card table and two indoor basketball hoops. The pool also was very nice for kids. The nightly rate was also very good for a whole house. The owner was very responsive to any of my questions before I rented
The Cons - Generally just small things like an office size trash can in the kitchen and a lot of lights that did not work. A large TV with no DVD player was a big negative. A lot of places that needed a coat of paint. There should be a small rug going from the pool to the indoor screened porch. Two of my grandchildren fell down when their wet feet hit the slippery tile in the porch area. Lucky nobody was hurt bad. Overall if the owner addressed all these cons, I would move it up to four stars. It's not a luxury rental but as they say "you get what you pay for". I would hope the owner would address these comments as he seems like a very decent person
My husband and I are from Winter Haven and go back with our kids as often as possible, usually staying with family or friends. This time we decided it would be nice to have our own space. The location was perfect for us, very central to everyone we needed to see and everything we needed to do. The home itself was very unassuming from the outside and a delightful surprise on the inside. We had family and friends over several times and they were all just as impressed and are keeping it in mind for their family, friends and business associates who come to Winter Haven to visit. It had everything we needed and although it was nice it wasn't over the top where we had to worry about the kids not being able to be kids. In fact, that said, the game room was AWESOME. Our kids forgot about their electronic devices and had fun playing pool, basketball, etc....so did we for that matter! We will definitely stay here again!
I was very happy with our stay , everything we needed was in house and everything was clean and well maintained . I would come back
Older home in quiet neighborhood was great for our family reunion. Very comfortable. Screened in porch had very nice furniture and fans. Beds were comfy and all bedrooms except the twins had ceiling fans. Game room with card table, pool table, and basketball game were fun. Kitchen, pans, bowls, etc let me cook full meals for 14, and slept 7 with no problem. Pool was nice. We all thought it was comfortable and a great value. A couple of closet doors were not attached, but were not a big deal to us. We had a problem with the Internet and TV connection due to recent storms, and the owner was responsive. I would return to this property for its location to family and comfort for larger crowds.
