I've been meaning to post a review since our stay in June '12.
First, the location is excellent. Attractions are all a relatively short drive away, including airport. A drive to Cocoa beach (Atlantic coast) is about an hour away - a perfect one-day break from the hubbub of Orlando.
As for the house itself: absolutely fantastic. Plenty of room, and rooms, for a lot of people. The master bedroom comes with its own shower, jacuzzi, walk-in closets, linen closet. Really comfortable. There's another large bedroom downstairs with an adjoining bathroom and four more bedrooms upstairs (and bathroom). One bedroom upstairs is a bit tight, but it does have a double bed and serves just fine. All the beds were comfortable, more than enough linens and towels for the week, but washer and dryer work great, too. The open floor plan downstairs allows for gathering together at the end of a day to prepare a meal, or just relax in the nicely equipped game room. The pool outside is large enough to do laps, or just relax in if it's a day to lounge around in one of the many chaise longues.
We were there a week with varying amounts of people throughout the week, and with enough room throughout. There was only one glitch and that is why I'm writing the review.
We returned one day to find the house quite warm. Didn't think too much about it as we'd had a long day at the beach, but woke to the fact that the air-conditioning had stopped working. Mind you, no small thing in Central Florida. We called the owner and he was out shortly after, but could not get the A/C to work. He got someone out there that afternoon who was able to get it working just fine. I really appreciate that he did this quickly and with attentiveness. He hung around to make sure all was working and we were comfortable. I found that really impressive and that attention to detail is reflected in the house and furnishings. Our time there was completely comfortable and I would not hesitate to rent this property again.
Really, a nice guy with a fine property in a great location. You won't go wrong booking here.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind words, it just goes to show that even with the best attention to detail things can go wrong, the important thing was we were able to get the A/C working in no time at all,which soon made things comfortable again. The guests communicating gave us the opportunity to overcome the problem.
As long as the experiences of your vacation leaves you smiling then we, like many other people, have made some contribution to those memories.
