5 stars

  • 5 of 5

Traveled 9 hours to Florida for spring break with the kids and as everyone else has commented, this townhouse is 5 stars. Very well stocked with everything you need and represented perfectly per the pictures. We had not one issue or problem. Resort staff was extremely pleasurable and helpful. You are close to everything you want to do...Disney, Universal, Seaworld, Legoland, Golf, you name it. Close to all the main restaurants and shopping if needed. Seriously, don't pack anything more than your summer clothes, flip flops and bathing suit. Kids are even stocked with video games and toys (nice touch). Shannon was a pleasure. Thanks again for a stress free process and stay!

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a fantastic time on our vacation. The house was perfect and the resort was even better than we anticipated. My wife already wants to book again for next year! We would definitely recommend this property.

I can't say enough about our incredible vacation. The house looked exactly like the pictures and the resort is beautiful. The owner, Shannon, was easy to deal with and always responded to emails quickly. We loved that we were close to so many restaurants plus the parks and downtown Disney! We can't wait to come back and will definitely be staying here when we do!

Extensive Property Maintenance During Our Stay...

  • 2 of 5

We stayed here for 6 days, and flew in from around the country to go to Disney World and spend time hanging out with family at the condo. We encountered several problems during our stay, and felt that the response to these problems from the property management company and owner were lacking.

- The second day, we are woken by people power-washing the building. Later when leaving, my sister was sprayed with the power washer. Upon return, the building had touch up paint all over it. We left a message with the property managers. They said they didn't handle building painting & to call the condo office, but didn't know the phone number.

- The keypad to unlock the front door wasn't working. We had to replace the batteries.

- The pool heater didn't seem to be working.

- The next day, we decided to take a day off from theme parks and hang out by the pool. I am awoken by a group of painters outside my window. They say they will be painting for the next several days.

- One of the front eyes on the stove does not work.

- A picture has cracked glass and appears to have been held together with duct tape.

- While hanging out by our private pool, painters are walking into the screened porch, climbing on the roof. We have no privacy. The painters leave trash on the grounds and a ladder is left on top of the porch overnight.

- We find a large shard of glass left on the ground by the private pool.

- My sister calls the owner and tells her what's going on. She apologizes, says she was not aware of any maintenance, and offers to let us move. We call the condo office again. They have units available, but it will cost us extra money out of pocket for 3 nights not including a pool heating fee, and we would have the inconvenience of packing up/moving everything.

- We tell the owner we won't move due to the above reasons, and she offers to refund us the pool heating fee. We respond to the owner, stating that doesn't seem adequate.

- The painting continued the next day.

- To top it off, on our last morning while packing, a person is on the back porch again - this time replacing the screening on the porch.

- The owner didn't respond to us until after we return home, and stated that the rental agreement includes a maintenance clause, but that the pool heating fee refund was a recognition of the inconvenience.

NOT A RELAXING is the owner and/or property manager's responsibility to know when property maintenance will be performed and to not rent the unit.

Owner's Response: Dear Natalie, Thank you for your review. I, again, apologize for your inconvenience and thank you for the opportunity to again address the situation. I'm sorry that you feel that my response, as well as my property manager's response, was lacking. Your family arrived on 10/4. I was not aware of any situation until 10/7 when I received a call from you at 9:15am. I spoke to you at length. As I explained to you on the phone, the maintenance of the resort is under the control of CLC Worldwide, not individual homeowners. That maintenance includes the exteriors of the buildings which neither I, nor my property manager, schedules. During our conversation I apologized for any inconvenience that you were caused and noted your concern about the pool heat. I suggested moving to one of the available homes owned by CLC Worldwide in the same resort and offered to refund your unused time entirely if the inconvenience from the maintenance work was such that you felt a move was necessary. Immediately after our phone call, I emailed my property manager and asked him to check on the pool heat. He came out within hours, spoke with the painters and checked the temperature of the pool heat. He found the pool to be exceptionally warm and was informed by the painters that they had only a small amount to finish the following day. He didn't note any trash or broken glass (and I'm not certain where large pieces of glass would come from) surrounding the home. I emailed you at 2:17pm to update you on the situation and to let you know of the property manager's responsiveness to your question of the pool heat. At that time, I also offered to refund your entire pool heat fee as recognition that this was an unanticipated complication to your stay. That evening, you emailed back saying that you had chosen to stay in the home and noted your complaint of trash and a "large shard of broken glass on our patio." I immediately passed this information onto my manager who, again, visited the property and could not find any evidence of trash/ broken glass surrounding the maintenance work. Likewise, I have witnessed maintenance by CLC teams and have found their work to be pristine and in keeping with an upscale resort. At the end of your stay, I refunded the pool heat as promised and have not received any communication until this review. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and wish your family the best in the future. Sincerely, Shannon DeCriscio

Fantastic Spot to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This property was fantastic. It was even better in person than in the pictures. It was roomy and clean and the pool overlooking the lake was amazing! There is a sidewalk so that you can walk all around the lake and the main clubhouse has two large pools, a small kids playground, a weight room and a bar/restaurant. The property is really close to Disney and a short drive to the Universal Studios Parks. We also drove to 2 beaches within 1-2 hours which is really nice to have that option. Outlet shopping is also within a short drive (under 30 mins) and there are many restaurant choices on the main street. It is a gated community and it is quiet which gives a very safe feeling. We would definately stay here again!!!
