The Perfect Home

  • 5 of 5

Having just returned from our 13th holiday in Orlando, I wanted to say how lovely this home is, we have always stayed in villas, lots in West Haven, we like this area as it is so handy to everything, this home had everything in it that you would ever need for a great place to stay. We had got in touch with the management company while we were there and they were always very prompt to reply and answer any query we asked, the house was very clean and well furnished. The owners of this property are very nice to deal with and would certainly use them again and recommend them to anyone who would be looking for somewhere to stay in Orlando. Highly recommended.

Excellent House and a great stay.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in numerous houses in this area and this was one of the nicest. It looked like the owner recently updated everything so everything was very up to date. Huge house with plenty of space for large groups. The owner is very responsive to emails ahead of your stay, during and after. Will stay here again.

Great house and location for Disney trip

  • 5 of 5

The home is inviting and comfortable . The location is perfect for a trip to Disney and Universal. We enjoyed the pool almost every day. The property manager, Linda, did a great job making sure our stay was wonderful and the owner, George, is always prompt with communication. Thanks for a great stay!

Great Experience despite problems

  • 5 of 5

We visited central Florida to attend Sun N Fun airshow this April. There were 7 of us - all adult males. Some storms had hit the area the week of our arrival and had caused a number of problems. The pool heater was broken, the freezer was not functioning, 2 of the televisions were destroyed, a number of outlets weren't working. George was great about letting us know ahead of time that the pool heater was working. He had arranged prompt repairs prior to our arrival. However, the repairs weren't successful and left us without a heated pool and hot tub. He was very apologetic and refunded our pool heater fee. The management company also was very responsive and flexible, doing their best to fix all of the problems. An electrician and the pool people all came to the house within 2 days of our arrival to work on the issues.

The house is large and spacious, with lots of room. It is very well-kept. This review could have very easily been "fair" only because of the issues with the property, but they were all out of the control of the owner and management and everyone was very responsive and friendly through the whole weekend. I would definitely recommend this property to any families or medium-sized groups wanting to visit nearby attractions!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Unfortunately we did experience some problems due to an electrical storm causing a power surge to damage a number of electrical items shortly before the guests arrival. I am grateful to our guests for their complete understanding, patience and co-operation in accepting that the issues were to a large extent outside of our control. I am pleased that despite all of this the guests were able to enjoy their stay and found the accommodation overall to be of a well kept standard. We look forward to welcoming you back to our home on your next visit to the Orlando area.

Great Florida property

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from our stay at this fantastic house. Our group comprised of ten people and my slight concern was if we would not have any space, this was totally unfounded as the house is so spacious that we were all able to find a quiet area if needed to have some rest.

The house is large and well equipped and the pool area was a favourite for the kids in particular.

In terms of location, the home is around 10/15 mins from Disney and 25 mins from Universal/SeaWorld. We also took a trip out to Cape Canaveral (Kennedy Space Centre,recommended) and this was around an hour on the toll motorway.

I would definitely come back to this property which is a lovely home in a good location. There is a good selection of medium sized shops in nearby Davenport ranging from Wendys/McD's to the excellent Chijis and the Publix store which has an aisle of UK products.

Repeat customer!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this property. George was great to deal with on the booking. The home is well kept and clean - a true home away from home. We especially liked the quite time around the pool and eating under the lanai after days at the parks.
