Guestbook comments from the owner

My experience with this rental was great. The house was nice and clean and accommodated myself and family well. I want to give a special thanks to Rob who really helped me in finding this rental. He sent me paperwork of things to do when you don't want to go to theme parks. He also answered all my questions and had such a great personality. I look forward to my winter vacation next year because I know who to call. Lol thanks again for allowing my family to enjoy Your Great property. See ya next year!!

overall we all enjoyed the property!

  • 4 of 5

Communications with the owner were excellent and overall we all enjoyed our time at the property.

We only stayed for 3 days as we were holidaying further up the coast in St Augustine.

The property was clean & tidy on arrival and the facilities on site and in the accommodation was all good.

The accommodation is centrally located so ideal if you want to explore all of Orlando.

To be honest our only complaint was with the single beds.

I think they have seen better days and should be renewed and the choice of nylon type sheets instead of cotton baffled all of us!

I take customer reviews very I truly appreciate that you took the time to share them with me. I will definitely check into the single beds. This is the first time I heard this from I'll address it quickly. Also....the preference for cotton sheets over microfiber. I'm glad you let me know. We'll put cotton sheets on our list!! Thanks again for trusting us with your vacation accommodations. It would be a privilege to have you back. Hopefully next time you'll be able to stay a bit longer in beautiful Orlando :-)

Suitable for our needs

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean and Rob was very helpful throughout the whole process.

We did not realize how long it took to get to Disney each day however. Please keep that in mind when you rent.

The pools are numerous but only one was open late enough in to the night for us to use it after supper (not Rob's fault)

Traffic is very busy in this area, most times of day so please keep that in mind when you plan things.

The condo was fine for the few days we were in town.

There are great souvenir shops nearby as opposed to spending large amounts at the theme parks.

Owner's Response: Hi Angela! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at our 4 bedroom, 3 bath villa over the Christmas holidays. I truly appreciate you choosing us for your stay. The busiest time of the year in Orlando is from Dec 20 to Jan 2, so yes, you are absolutely correct, I am sure you experienced a lot of traffic due to the influx of vacationers for the holidays. The fastest way to get to Disney is via Osceola Parkway which is just 2 minutes from the resort. That is a straight shot to the gates of Disney and is much faster than taking Rt 192 (Irlo-Bronson Highway) which has a lot of stop lights. The pool hours vary depending on the time of year and yes, the main pool is the one that stays open the longest, usually to around 11pm. I will work with our Resort Management staff to see if those hours can be extended along with the hours for the 3 other pools in the resort. Thanks again for letting me know about your experience. I look forward to the opportunity to serve you again on your next trip!

Everything we could have wanted, again!

  • 5 of 5

Better late than never... We wanted to let Rob know that we loved staying in the condo again last summer. Turns out, our son did make the USSSA team, and this time I returned to Rob's condo with my husband, two adult daughters, and my uncle who lives in the area. Not only was the condo perfectly placed for trips to Universal and shopping, but it also provided a terrific respite from the Florida heat and hustle of the tournament. We also were close to the Houston Astros' spring training facility, where the tournament games took place.

Rob is a terrific host, and we think his condo is our good-luck charm; in the tourney, USA beat Puerto Rico in the finals to take home the Gold!

Thanks, Rob, from our family to yours.

Great Florida Experience

  • 5 of 5

We are three moms, each with a 15-year-old son who was invited to tryout for the USSSA national baseball team. We looked high and low for a place to stay that would afford us the space and facilities to care for our young men during this important time. This 4-bedroom villa fit the bill. The full-size washer and dryer helped us with our nightly laundry duties. A full-sized kitchen with a blender allowed for specific dietary needs (read: protein shakes), and the fridge was sizable enough for us to stock with water, G2, Powerade Zero, and moms' beverages of choice. Bedroom configuration worked for us as well, two BRs had 2 twins each, plus a king and a queen, so nobody had to share a bed. The three full baths ensured there was never a line for the restroom. Cable TV in three rooms was an added plus, and we also rented from Red Box a couple of nights, as the evenings were about rest and recovery. These were our needs -- we did not use the Venetian Bay facilities (pool, rec room, workout room), as this was not the purpose of our visit. There was a manual in the room of some things one should know when traveling in Florida, as well as information about the villa itself.

Rob was a dream to work with. He was very responsive and informative. When I let him know my son and I were flying in early, he gave me a list of things to do and places to eat. The villa is nearby groceries/Walmart/Target and Rob made sure that I was comfortable with their locations. When we first arrived, I was unable to find the key. I called and left a message for Rob and he called me back to make sure we got in okay.

The one thing that would have made our visit smoother (if that is possible, as this was such an enjoyable visit), is the front gate security procedures. This procedure was not addressed at all when I signed the rental paperwork initially. They asked for proof of our car insurance, which is typically in the glove compartment of your vehicle -- but if you are driving a rental, one typically does not have this in-hand. One of my traveling companions called her husband back home the next morning for this info (I had my insurance card on me). While we are very happy that security is taken seriously, a heads-up on the parking pass procedure would have been helpful.

Overall, I would not hesitate to rent from Rob again -- and if my family should ever visit the Kissimmee area again, he will be my first call.

Thanks, Rob, for making us feel at-home!

Owner's Response: Hi Kirsten! I'm so glad everyone had a wonderful time! It was a pure joy to work with you and hear about your exciting adventure in Orlando. I very much appreciate you taking the time to tell me about your experiences and that you enjoyed yourselves. I will definitely look into the process regarding the car insurance, as that is the first time I'm hearing about it. Yes...we do take security seriously, however if it will be a standard request to see proof of car insurance, I agree with you that we need to let guests know ahead of time so they are prepared to present that information. I will defintely work through that process with the resort. Thanks so much for staying with would be an honor to have your family and friends back again! Enjoy the rest of your summer :-)
