We are sorry to note Millie's comments in respect of our villa, as we will like everybody who stays in our villa to feel as they are in a home away from home. The majority of our rentals have an extremely pleasant stay. Most of our bookings are repeat bookings or referrals from previous renters who have enjoyed their stay in our villas so much they have referred their friends and relatives. We do welcome feedback however as it helps to keep us focused on what renters want in a villa. We have used our best endeavours to update the property and replace and renew utensils and furnishing since this feedback.
Our property managers remain extremely helpful and willing to deal with individual requirements while rentals are on site.
The property remains extremely good value for money.
We had an OK stay at this house, but unfortunately it ended badly with the charge of damage we did not cause. But let's start at the beginning:
We were never asked what time we would arrive. When we did arrive, we were told that check-in was at 4pm, so after traveling in total about 24h from Brazil and driving from Miami, we still had to wait to get in.
The utensils are not great. There are no sharp knives and no teaspoons, for example, just big ones. This was important for us to cook for the children.
The smoke detectors kept beeping for the entire stay, in different rooms and times.
The alarm to the deck was just hanging from the door and went off when we touched it.
There were not enough face towels.
Internet was very unstable.
We requested a crib and it was a portable one (no problem there) with no mattress.
Not all of the top parts of the stove were working.
There were no extra linens in the rooms.
As for the damage, we were told there were broken screens in the deck after we left. Not only did we not use the deck at all, we saw a maintenance person there once, which means anyone has access to the deck (and the house if you do not lock the back door). Since it is an outside part of the deck, it could have been anyone at the resort, really. We were still charged $ 195 for this. We believe this is part of the house maintenance. We did not even receive pictures of the damage. They did not believe when we said it wasn't us, but we have to believe there was damage.
Even though the house was ok overall, I would not stay there again and do not recommend it.
We had a pleasant stay at this property. Very good location close to restaurants and dinner shows. Walmart and lots of other stores are very close by. The property was clean and comfortable. The lake area is very nice with a park and a sort of bird sanctuary. The description of the distance to the attractions is accurate.
perfect for big family great location would recommend to everyone vacationing with 6 or more people.
Property was easy access to parks, eating etc. Clean, open floorplan, large kitchen and nice pool. Friendly gate people. Would definitely rent here again without hesitation.
This property was awesome!!! We were 5 adults and 5 kids, it was spaciuos with enough room for everyone. It was well kept and clean! We highly recomend it! Walmart is less than a mile away and we stocked up on food for the whole week on the first day. Make sure you rent the grill it's $65 for the week (not included in the origiinal price), nothing better then grilling while the kids (little and big ones) are splashing and playing in the pool!! The house is in a gated comunity with a security guard that checks everyone giong in, a big plus that made us feel safer (safety is a big thing for me as I am a police officer). The neighborhood is nice with other gated comunities and lots of palm trees. We are never renting a hotel room again, we've discovered the biggest "travel secret" for a family with kids!! We will rent this property again in the future for sure!!!
We had 10 people (6 adults, 4 children) staying at the house and had plenty of space for everyone. The house is in a great location (less than 5 minutes from WalMart, Aldi, Medieval Times, fast food, etc) and the neighborhood is very quiet. The house did show some wear (broken blinds, a stove burner that didn't work) but overall it is very clean and neat, and everything we needed - dishes, linens, etc - was provided. Betina was very helpful and friendly, and answered all of my questions promptly; our deposit was also returned very quickly after our trip. The house was better and cheaper than a hotel, and we would definitely use it again if we traveled to the Orlando area.
