It was ok

  • 4 of 5

There are some pros and cons. Pros-plenty of seating for inside and out, location was pretty easy to find, it was clean and looked exactly like the pictures, there was privacy around the pool, the beds were very comfortable, and the neighborhood was very quiet. The house was very pretty and my family was mostly content with the house. Cons-I especially asked to make sure the hot tub was working. We have stayed in several different homes and on two occasions the hot tub didn't work. So, when I booked the house, I made it a point to ask about the hot tub, to make sure it was working. It didn't work. When if finally got hot and we turned on the jets, it was emptying. I asked the manager multiple times to get it fixed. This caused me a great deal of anxiety! I wanted everything to be great for my family. She finally got someone to fix it the day before we left. We were only able to enjoy it for about an hour. It is small and only comfortable for two, maybe three people at a time. The upstairs bedroom had no door. This makes privacy for couples a little difficult. It was also incredibly hot when we first arrived, my brother had to go buy a fan. The manager said there was one in the property. But, we couldn't find it. The ceiling fan in that room wobbled so much, they thought it might fall on them in the middle of the night.

Also, I didn't get my check in instructions when I sent my last payment. The owner said she sent it but, I checked and didn't find it. I have all my documents from all the houses we have ever stayed in, even from 10 years ago. So, if you stay here make sure you get that when you book. All the bathrooms are downstairs. The pillows are flat, if you like fluffy ones you may want to bring your own.

Awesome place to stay near all Orlando attractions.

  • 5 of 5

Sue and John were great and attentive to every need. The home was wonderful. Plenty of room for all of the family and a great pool to come home to in the evening. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a comfortable home away from home. Great location with easy access to all of the Disney parks, shopping, and dining. We had a great trip. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us for out holiday.

Plenty of room for the entire family!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Florida because our daughter competed at ESPN Wide world of sports in a cheering competition. We stay in this home during our stay and everything was fabulous!

Sue met us on arrival and showed us around, the alarms, (which went off) and the pool area to familiarize us with everything.

We loved our stay and would recommend this property to all of our family and friends. We already have! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!!
