First let me say I didn't stay here in May 2013, however, I rented this unit for about 4 years straight for a week in July, and after reading the 1 star review felt like I had to chime in. The pictures clearly show this is not an ultra-modern luxury unit, if you want that go down the street to Sierra Shores where the nightly rates are equal to the weekly rates of this unit. What this unit is, is clean, comfortable, and extremely well located, just a short stroll to the beach, and access to all of the great Lakeland Village amenities. The linens were always clean, as were the dishes and all of the utensils. Finally, in the 4 (it may have been more) years I rented the unit, the owner did not deduct $1 from my security deposit. In fact, on more than one occasion, I left something behind, and she returned it to me free of charge. I have decided to expand my summer vacation destinations, however, if/when I return to South Shore, I will be renting this unit.
My friend and I stayed in Lakevillage condo in August, 2012. The condo is very poor maintained, dishes are very old, pans are greezy. Washer and dryer mashine very aged and don't do a good job. Beddings did not even looked like they were washed, yellow stains on the pillows and matresses. We had to get our own bedding to sleep on. No air conditioning, its hot in the summer. I really like Lakeland property itself, and it was no vacancy, as we almost checked out from such a poor quality house. After all, the owner refused to return my security deposit, that she collected for keys and permits which I had returned promptly. After a month, I contacted her and she said that cleaner had to spend an extra time cleaning after us (which is unpossible as we barely stayed inside and vacumed daily), and she is keeping security deposit. Please note, that when you book, she is charging for cleaning on top of the rental fee. Looks like her prices are reasonable, but I would rather pay little extra then stay in such a poor maintained property.
We are staying here for our second time this summer. It is perfect for families. A roomy townhouse in a perfect community. There is a bedroom with 2 queens plus a loft upstairs with (I think) a full-maybe queen. Lots of blankets and pillows.Everything is provided, just bring food and your toiletries and laundry soap. There is a small balcony with a grill which we used daily. The town home was clean and we had no issues with maintenance while there.
The community has 2 pools, hot tubs (my kids requirement) a private beach on the lake with rentals (jet skis, kayaks, canoes, peddle boats available) a tiny park and also tennis courts. A nice little kids club for the smaller ones, it is a very safe family friendly environment. It is in a great location so once you get there you don't need to drive again, you can walk to everything.
Staying there was our best vacation ever!
