I stayed here for two weeks in April 2011 having travelled from England with my daughter and my parents. I really do have nothing but good things to say about it and would recommend it to anybody looking for a quality property near to Disneyland.
The villa is very well proportioned and well maintained, and has all the comforts of home including appliances, wireless internet and three TVs (one with DVD player) and even an iPod dock. The kitchen has good storage and plentiful crockery, utensils etc. The master bedroom is impressive as is the en suite and dressing room, and the other three bedrooms and two bathrooms are more than adequate for adults or children to use. The pool was clean and warm (even though we chose not to heat it). I loved the little details like board games, DVDs and books for the children, plentiful towels, instructions for all the appliances and the folder of local information.
The development which the villa is on is quiet, but not so quiet that you can't enjoy yourself. The clubhouse was a great amenity that provides services such as ticket and newspaper sales and dvd rentals as well as the pool, gym etc. They also put on events such as an Easter Egg Hunt which my daughter loved, and a cook out.
The owner of the property was extremely efficient, answered all queries etc very quickly and thoroughly and also provided local information that proved very useful to us. There is also a local management contact that you can call if you have any issues - I called them when I was unable to operate the washing machine (due to my own stupidity!) and they came round quickly to help.
The villa is about 20 minutes drive to Disney, 45 minutes from the airport and is close to local shops and restaurants.
This was the first time I have used the internet to choose a privately owned property and I was nervous about it. However, when I arrived I was relieved to discover that the nerves had been unneccesary, and I had chosen very well. If you are looking for a property to rent, you would do well to choose this one.
We loved this home for any occasion, clean, well stocked with cookware. The unit is convenient along with plenty of sleeping space that we fit three families in here comfortably without hindering anyone's privacy or space. The community is close in proximity to Walmart and local restaurants and is a short drive to Disney. Overall, the stay was everything we could have ever asked for and the property was absolutely wonderful. No complaints, I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a nice vacation!
The home was absolutely fantastic and clean. We had a family of 8 and we were all very comfortable in the home, plenty of room. We visited Disney, SeaWorld, and Universal and after a long day in the heat .it was nice to come home to a beautiful spacious home. Private pool is a plus and it was a real treat for my kids. Me and my family are talking about coming back. See you soon!
We were overall satisfied with the house with some small problems. We were not aware that we had to provided our own toilet tissue. One of the outlets in the master bedroom had no cover on it and didn't work. There were not enough towels for 10 people. Some of the beds were very loose to the point that we put the matress on the floor to sleep on. I paid to have the pool and spa heated and did not have that for two days as the water went out of the spa. They did come and fix it but had to run a lot of water in the pool and it was cold. I did not think that the house was as clean as it could be. You need to replace the coffee table as it is very loose and we did not let the kids use it. Also, the recliner was broken. We were told to put the cover on the pool but it wasn't at the pool. It was in the garage and we couldn't handle it. The location was very convient and we definitly appreciated that.The people that we dealt with were very nice. Thanks for having us.
left note in Villa with observations etc.
summarise as follows: 1. One blind slat on Bedroom floor on arrival. Managed temporary fix by putting it in 'upside-down' but won't last. 2nd Twin Bed.
2. Smoke Alarm battery warning bleep going off when we arrived.(1st twin bed). Called Maintenance but as it was Saturday wasn't confident of rectification. We changed back-up battery ourselves on Sunday evening-otherwise Kids would have never got to sleep.
3. Paid for Pool/Spa to be heated through-out week. Ok when we arrived, but issues thru week. reported one day it was not heated and Spa empty. Somebody corrected whilst we were out. Another morning we found hose topping up Pool with side gate open. as this was at 6.30 am we assumed it had been left all night. We'd come back late the night before and hadn't used Pool. reported that Spa was again empty-corrected. on last night, when arriving back with Kids determined to get into Pool we found Pool night-lights wouldn't function.
These were are all minor issues and didn't stop our enjoyment of our Florida visit but were irritations we could have done without.
Another minor issue...where's return of deposit (less Pool/Spa heating cost)?
The house is in a great neighborhood. We spend 3 days at universal studios and 2 days at the beach. The people at the resort checkin are so nice and helpful. The house was pleanty big enough for our crew of 5 . Loved the pool and hot tub. We had the hot tub heated the breaker kept blowing so we would have to flip the breaker for the hot tub to heat, and the pool was perfect. Some things i did not like was the furnature is falling apart. Also we found broken glass in the pool it was clear and we found 4 pieces total by steping on them. Also i didnt feel there was enough towles. The beds are comfy but super loud as well as the washer and dryer make horrible squeaking noise we had to do laundry while we were out of the house noise was so bad.
The showers had great water presure and pleanty of hot water. Another thing to watch out for is all floor is slick so any water on the floor and ur going to slip. The only bed room that had a tv was the master and the living room. The hide away bed in the couch we lifted the mattress and there was moldy food under it. This is a great house just needs some upkeep.
