Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much, Mike and Susie for being so helpful, we could not have planned this vacation without you.

Everything went according to plan, just as you told us it would.

The Villa was amazing, comfortable, spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped, we wanted for nothing.

We used your catering team on one evening - they were absolutely superb.

Well done, we will certainly recommend you to future visitors.

We spent two weeks at this beautiful home and it was wonderful. Excellent size every amenity you would need for the comforts of home. Mike was always helpful and fast at responding to all my questions. We had more than enough room that everyone could have their own privacy when they needed some quiet time. Pool was great for the kids and adults and when we needed extra towels for our large group Mike arranged for someone to bring them over right away. Movie room was awesome and so was the huge outdoor pool area with the kids water slide. Thanks Mike we will definitely be visiting your beautiful home again.

We have to thank Mike and Susie for letting us stay in their beautiful property.

From the initial inquiry through the booking process and our ultimate stay, they have been nothing but professional and courteous throughout.

The property is absolutely stunning and in the only location we return to year after year,

it is within minutes of a vast variety of good quality restaurants and shops and without doubt Formosa Gardens has the easiest access to all the attractions.

We had extended family join us, during our stay and although there were 18 of us, we never felt crowded, everyone loved the summer kitchen and pool area, the best we have ever seen.

The property was very clean and very well equipped, we had to call out the management on one occasion for a faulty door lock(low battery) they were extremely quick and very friendly.

We would recommend this property to anyone, it really is the best we have ever stayed in and look forward to our return.

We were fortunate enough to stay in this beautiful property for my Grandparents large family reunion. There were 18 of us, from teenagers to 85 year olds, everything about this property was exactly as described, infact it was much better than the description.

We spent many hours in the outside summer kitchen and the totally private pool area was the best we have ever experienced.

The inside was very clean and exceptionally well equipped, everyone had their own space and we never felt crowded.

I would recommend this property to anyone and have already booked again for 2015.

Shame it's not been looked after..

  • 2 of 5

A group of us stayed here in November we had all travelled out for mine and my now wife's wedding..

The house is of a nice size and great location, but I think it's about time for a deep clean..

The photos on this website and others are taken when it was new it's a very different story now.. (We have lots of pics)

We arrived to snapped toilet seats, holes in walls, general dirt up walls, assuming the cleaner is short the layer of dust on top of the fridge... Woah!! The air con ducts are full of dust!! The curtain going out to the pool area isn't just dirty it's filthy!!! Broken bed posts, abused bedside tables, these are just a handful of things... But the most unforgivable, broken glass round the pool from previous guests.

So I urge the owner if they read this to shut it down for a couple of weeks and have a painting and cleaning vaction.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your feedback, however I am a little shocked as the house had a complete refurbishment less than 18 months ago and the photos are only 12 months old. The property is cleaned on a weekly basis and I personally regularly visit the property to make sure everything is in order and continuously update the home. I have however made sure the property has had a recent deep clean and can assure you that all issues mentioned have been rectified.

Beautiful Home - Rough Start . . .

  • 3 of 5

We were very excited about our vacation to Disney and the vacation home. Upon our arrival we found a beautiful home inside and out. However, we were very disappointed to find that everything was not in working order in the rental. Items that were not working:

1) Movie theater - projector bulb was not replaced until Wednesday evening - more than 1/2 of vacation was over. The repairman from the management company said "these bulbs go out all the time", so wasn't there a back-up supply of bulbs.

2) Dishwasher - wouldn’t drain

3) Computer & Wi-Fi (never worked)

4) Had problems with showers – had to call for instructions

5) No washcloths - had to buy

6) Exhaust fan in summer kitchen not working properly. We were "smoked out" of the kitchen.

7) Irons not working – 1 was replaced

8) Some bedroom TVs not working

9) Summer kitchen freezer not working

10) Had to call pest control (cockroaches).

When owner was notified of the issues he negated them, saying that the management company advised him the only issue was the theatre room and that he didn't expect to receive this sort of correspondence, namely me expressing my "disappointment", because this was "a beautiful property" and considering the fact that he let us bring our dog, that we shouldn’t be complaining. (Note: our dog is a 7 pound, 10 year old, house-trained miniature pinscher.)

I replied to the owner that no one was disputing how beautiful the home was. We merely wanted to let him know that his management company clearly had misinformed him of issues in the home and/or were not checking to make sure everything was in working order. I also let him know that the fact that "he let us bring our dog", as he put it, did not mean that we should not complain about deficiencies in the home.

We were very disappointed that we did not get as much as an apology and a "we'll get right on these issues".

This is just a "buyers beware" note . . . The home is absolutely beautiful inside and out and is in a great location. With that being said, the owner/management needs to make sure everything is working BEFORE tenant arrives! It is truly unfortunate that the owner chose to respond so defensively. Hopefully this review will make him aware of these issues and he will address them so that future renters will have smooth sailing.

Owner's Response: We always welcome all comments regarding our property's, whether positive or negative. However, in this instance the Management Company only found the Theatre movie projector light had blown(these last approx 4 years) and one iron missing, everything else was in perfect working order. These two items were attended to as soon as was practically possible. We assure you, we constantly strive to maintain the best possible service to our guests.

The Perfect Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had to take the time to thank the owners for all the effort he and his wife put into making this villa a perfect vacation home. I have stayed in the Formosa Garden area for 4 years and never had the experience my family had in this Villa! The furnishings were top quality. The T.Vs were all modern and easy to use. It made it difficult to leave and go visit the local area. The pictures don't do it justice. Everything was exactly like he explained and the few questions we did have were handled immidiatly by the local rental agency. "Jeeves" he calls them. We would love to stay there at our next family reunion. And I DEFINITLY recommend this Villa to anyone looking to spoil themselves with a top quality vacation home,
