This home is a truly beautiful five bedroom, three full bath, two story, open floor plan, pool home. There are no rear neighbors we back up to a pond where you can fish. The house is located five minutes to Disney World or minutes to Seaworld and all other attractions.
The house is fully equipped with all you may need right down to bath towels. There are three bedrooms upstairs two of them have two twin beds each the other has a bunk bed with a full-size on bottom and a twin on top. There is a full bath upstairs with those bedrooms. Downstairs there is a beautiful master bedroom and bath with sliders to the pool and a king-size bed. The other bedroom has a queen Bed and another full bath down. The Family room has sliders also to pool with alarms on both doors for small children. There is a full laundry room also on the first floor. We also have free Wireless Internet. The house is immaculate and a spectacular place to spend your vacation. We rent daily, weekly and monthly.
Very sad to see this review as I did anything and everything I could to help them in anyway. Florida can have very quick bad storms and you lose power. I cannot change or control that. He was a complete bully to me. I take great pride in providing a beautiful home.
Very nice home with easy access to all Disney theme parks (within 15 minutes drive time). Most information was provided before arrival, but there were WiFi passwords which we discovered on the refrigerator door after contacting Colleen. Colleen was very reachable and responsive. We did go without television and internet access for two days and lost an afternoon due to cable issues which were property management related (prior renter apparently unplugged a signal booster which rendered the systems inoperable). The pool was not used but was questionable due to lack of cleaning (green buildup on the bottom and steps). I'm sure this issue would have been resolved if brought up to Colleen; however, the outside and water temperature would have made for a cold swim. There is a need for a property manager for this and all VRBO homes. It would provide the renter with a more efficient issue resolution and owner with piece of mind. I am still awaiting the refund of my security deposit (I believe this will be resolved shortly as it has only been 10 days since our departure). Overall I would rent this property again.
The trip started off on a bad note when we arrived at 10:30pm to walk into a powerless sweatbox. I got no reply to my voicemail. I texted her and got a reply. Handling issues over text isn't an appropriate way to resolve issues. Even if she didn't receive the call, which she claimed, then once she got the text she should've called.
At no time did she apologize for the inconvenience, or express sympathy for the fact that I had a basketball team of youths who had to sit in a hot house without power after traveling all day, with no ability to get food as no power meant no fridge.
The owner's grand reply was "there must have been a storm" & "I was there yesterday and all was good" Not exactly what you'd expect to hear in that situation, not only not remorse, almost disbelief of what I was telling her. Like when I said other houses have power, she replied "around you?" no, back home 7 states away. I struggle to accept her storm theory as every single house next to, across & on surrounding streets from our house had power. Unless the storm took out power at just one house which I've never seen happen. She offered no solutions.
At this point it was 11pm and the kids were growing tired of sitting in that sweatbox; I told her if it wasn't fixed soon I was taking them to a hotel and it would come out of the house fee. She went from apathetic to confrontational, and at that point I gladly matched her confrontation level. She said it wouldn't happen & she could not control the weather so there was nothing she could do. A RESPONSIBLE owner in this situation would make the situation right, not hide behind her cell phone. She scoffed at my suggestion to bring a generator, saying she couldn't get one at that hour while the next sentence saying this stuff happens all the time in FL; well if it does then she should INVEST in a generator so her PAYING CUSTOMERS aren't put in that situation, it is called good business practices!
The power finally came on around 2am, when we got back from Denny's to both get AC and some ice cream to escape that house. Overall the WORST owner I've ever dealt with and I have rented homes in 5 states.
House itself isn't bad, comfortable temp (with power), hot water good, plenty of towels & nice washer/dryer. Need new cooking pans & utensils as most are warped & corroded with old food. Need to clean up bushes in the front too as having to walk literally through bug infested bushes at night to get to the door isn't good.
Very clean home, a great deal and more than enough room. We were within 10 minutes of all Disney parks and also Sizzler down the street (try the corn nuggets!). Colleen had everything we needed...pots, pans for cooking (and a grill outside), and a pack and play for the baby to sleep at night. Close enough to the parks where we were able to come home for a few hours during the middle of the day. Fans throughout the house helped keep things cool in the Florida summer. Will come again, thank you!
Thank you so much. We enjoyed our stay and the home was exactly what we expected. I would recommend it to others and hope to go back again.
We stayed 16 days in this house, we had an excellent stay, very comfortableclean and comfortable home. Would definitely go back.
This house was amazing. You get what you expect and more. Very nice, clean, updated. Everything we wanted and expected for our vaca. Within ten mins of all Disney parks. Several stores nearby. Home owner was very easy and pleasant to work with. Rest assume that this home will provide you the peace of mind you need when booking a home, sight unseen.
