Great house for families

We loved all the space in this house. It's a really great set-up for families...TVs in every bedroom and three bathrooms. The house was clean and the pool was very inviting. We had a problem with the pool heat when we first arrived but that was resolved quickly. I loved having a full kitchen so my kids could have fun playing while I got supper ready...after a day at the park I did not want to sit and try to entertain my kids in a restaurant. This house is about 15 min from Disneyworld and there is a grocery store and CVS down the road from the house. I am very happy we did not stay "on property" at Disneyworld. Although the houses are close together, the neighborhood was quiet and peaceful....my own kids in the pool probably created the most noise. My only complaint would be only supplying 3 rolls of toilet paper for a family of 4 for a week! I called the property manager but was told that was all that is supplied. I have rented several vacation rentals in the past and have never experienced this cost-saving extreme. I have rented other rentals where the owners leave more than enough necessary supplies...soap, dishwasher detergent, toilet paper, etc. Overall we had a great time...despite the extra trip to CVS.
Owner's Response: I am so pleased this guest noted "THE POOL WAS INVITING" The "HOUSE WAS CLEAN" And the benefits of not staying on property! I asked the guest and she said she reserves 5 STARS for the "Walfdorf Astoria." Okay, that is understandable, we like to keep our rates reasonable. As a Self-catering home we supply one roll/per bath of Consumable Paper Products (spelling out Toilet paper seemed crass - I guess we should - we mention this in our contract, twice-which she signed). The other properties she stayed at were in Cape Cod where the stores are further away and the rates are much higher. As a self-catering home, we do infact include all detergents but no personal hygenine products - also mentioned in contract (wouldn't you perfer to bring your own shampoo but not your own Tide?). Different rental areas have different methods and it is important to learn what these are prior to arrival and read the contracts in order to obtain the information. Or just ask. Asking is a good way to see how you like dealing with owner or manager.
