Beautiful home but not perfect for families with small children

  • 4 of 5
This home is just as shown on web site, beautiful and clean!
We had a 22 month old and 4 year old with us. The tile on the first floor was very slippery if wet. The dining area in the pool area is smooth surface concrete, when it gets wet it is also very slippery. If the kids had to go to the bathroom, we would strip them down naked and dry them off before letting them go in the house. No matter how well you think you dried, the swim suit would always end up dripping before you could get to and from the bath room. The bathroom was on the other side of the first floor so you had to walk across the whole first floor. This was a problem for the adults as well!
The Netflix and HuluPlus did not work. When we tried, it said it needed to be updated. We called the property managers and they said this is something the homeowners need to do. We thought they should have notified the homeowner but we don't think they did. If they did, we never heard anything from anyone. The 4 year old loves a movie before bedtime so we were disappointed not to have these two features we were expecting. They did have several DVD's for kids to choose from!
The spa was not working when we got there. We called the property manager. They sent someone out but she didn't know how to fix it. The next morning we still had not heard from anyone about the spa so we called again. At this time they sent someone out. He was able to fix it somewhat but, it was more like a bath tub. The water wasn't that warm and the spa pressure was weak. Not very relaxing.
One great feature was the air conditioner. Sometimes in a two story home, the second floor doesn't cool as well as needed, this home was pretty cool upstairs. The one bedroom with the double bed did get a little warm. We kept the shades pulled but it was still a little warm. The 4 year old slept in this room, the heat did not seem to bother him.
The shared bath upstairs would be nicer if they used different light bulbs around the vanity. They heated the bathroom up a LOT.
Try the Fish House restaurant! Also check out The Love Boat Ice Cream. Too good, had to go there more than once!
