Wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay. Right off Irlo Bronson, which is a street you can find anything on, with a pool near the house, a beautiful view of a lake, and a fun mini-golf course. The property itself is very clean, very well appointed and a pleasure to live in. My husband and I stayed there for two weeks and enjoyed every minute of it. Also, all the people are really nice and friendly and I couldn't think of a safer place to stay at.

Nice place close to theme parks

  • 5 of 5

Nice little place located close to all the theme parks. The owner was very responsive to any questions. Only complaint is that the bed squeaked whenever you moved around. We would recommend this place to others.

Property was clean, well euqipped with essentials, well maintained, secure and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage for our children's first Disney experience. All of the parks were within 15 minutes drive and a straight shot down State Route 192. For being located in a fairly dense, populated area, the location felt remote and extremely quiet. The cottage was well maintained and provided more than enough furnishings to cook, clean, and remain entertained. Our children enjoyed the pool daily which was a 30 second walk from the cottage. All of the grounds people and staff were courteous and helpful and the owner was never more than a text away, great customer service! We would emphatically recommend this option for anyone looking to escape the population and limitations often accompanying hotels. For 11 days we cooked and enjoyed family meals, our own laundry facilities, air conditioning and comfortable, highly adequate accommodations, easily sleeping a family of 4. Having your own place of retreat after busy days was a priceless and money saving experience that we wouldn't hesitate to repeat the next time we consider vacationing in the Orlando/Kissimmee area.

Owner's Response: I am so happy that your family enjoyed the stay. That is so very important to me. I agree, it is really amazing how quiet it is there even though it is so centrally located to everything. I am so happy to have families there to be able to relax, enjoy the pool and the amenities, cook And dine together at the end of a long playful but busy day. I hope you return and thank you so much for that honest and kind review!

Nothing but the best here!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were down for a week to go to Disney and not lose our shirt doing so. I must say, when I first booked the rental, I had my doubts. But boy was I shocked! There was no beating the location, amount of amenities, and cleanliness for such an affordable rate. Walmart is a few minute car ride and we saved hundreds by getting our groceries there instead of eating out at the parks. These pictures don't do justice for the house....it is so much more spacious and comfortable. The wifi was great - able to stream Netflix without problems and take phone calls over my voip pbx system like I was still in the office. The pool was fun and seemed to be consistently kept at the right temperature. Wish I could own this place instead of rent it. I don't think I'd ever leave!

Charming cottage in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I am already planning a return trip. The cottage is so lovely and larger than expected. The owner is wonderful to work with and the location and value can't be beat. The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet. You can walk to restaurants and CVS, if needed, and a Publix and Wal-mart are a very short ride away. Centrally located to main attractions. The mattresses were very comfortable, great water pressure, fast wi-fi, nice kitchen and bathroom. The owner has thought of everything to make for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Thank you so much! What a gem.

We recently upgraded to hi speed wifi and a ton more channels for guests' convenience. I am glad you enjoyed this also. Great feedback! I will set up your next stay whenever you wish! :)

Non Disney rental close to everyt

  • 3 of 5

The Kissimmee Cottage was cute and served the purpose we were looking for.... a non Disney resort home with amenities. The cottage was close to several restaurants and shopping areas. The day we arrived we were able to find a Walmart just a few miles away to stock the fridge for our dinners. The pool and grounds were nicely kept and quite. We are an average size family of four with two small kids and this home was perfect for our size. All the Disney parks are a short drive (10-20 minutes) away and a much more enjoyable ride than using Disney transportation. The first complaint I have is the actual cleanliness of the home. It wasn't "dirty" just not as clean and organized as I would expect a home that is being rented to others to be. When we arrived the shower had not been cleaned; I could tell from the several pieces of hair on the shower walls and in the drain. The toilet and sink were in need of cleaning too, so we cleaned these before use. The sheets on the bed did not looked washed (again hair on the sheets; I'm assuming the last renter did not follow directions to wash all linens) so I washed and dried those using the washer and dryer in the utility room just of the screened-in porch. I did contact the owner about the condition of the bathroom and she responded right away with apologies and that her cleaning lady had never had a poor review in the two years they have used her. Once I sent her pictures of the conditions we found in another email I received no response. All the cabinets are completely unorganized. Trying to find cups, plates, cooking utensils, etc.... was a task on it's own. Several of the items once found needed to be washed before use (again, assuming that others did not wash the items appropriately before returning to the cabinets). The 2nd complaint our family had with this rental is the lack of trash bags and hand soap. What I mean is there were NONE! I understand not wanting to supply a week's worth of these items, but It would have been nice to at least have had a few to get us through the first day so we didn't have to make multiple trips to the store before settling in, or let us know in the renter's welcome package to pick these items up as they are not supplied. I'm not trying to pick this home apart with what some may call "a picky review" I just want others to know that this home is a deal for the money, but may be more suited for those that are not skeptical of other people's lack of cleaning abilities.

Owner's Response: First I want to thank you for your stay at the cottage. I appreciate your review of both what you loved about it and what needed improvement.. Without constructive criticism, I would not know that there were any issues to address. As you know, I was surprised but I take all concerns serious and I take great pride in it being as close to perfectas possible for guests. I left you a message to respond to your concerns but will here as well. As soon as you told me about and sent me pictures of the hairs in the bathroom and on the bedding I immediately alerted my housekeeper. I do not dismiss ANY concern. My main concern was to address it right away. As you stated, that it wasn't dirty but needed some organization in the cabinets. You are correct. Plates and cups were not organized as well as I would have wanted so we re positioned them for ease. Over time, things got placed in wrong places. I do usually supply a soap pump and it should have been there. The utensils were all in 2 drawers to make it handy and easy to find so I did not see any need to rearrange them. In the future, I will be sure that I list what I do supply and don't supply in the rental agreement as well as on homeaway as I do now. I will add this info to the agreement as you suggested. The bathroom should be perfect. There should never be any hairs remaining in a shower. I reminded her to do a "walk through" before departing. My cleaner reminded me of the mark that is in the bottom of the shower that cannot be gotten out. She has tried everything to get the stain out to no avail. When we came down after your stay, we did see the pink trash bags under the sink that I had purchased but I think there were too many cleaning supplies so it would be easy to overlook.My apologies for that. Less items will be put under the cabinet so no one will run into that again. I reminded the cleaner to ALWAYS make sure that when she take linens out of the dryer or closet, etc...that they have no hair, soils, etc....for the next use. Even though prior renters are suppose to wash the linens upon their departure, she needs to check them carefully and re launder when necessary. Thank you again for addressing your concerns so that all guests are happy with the cottage stay. I have updated a checklist for her after seeing your concerns. Vacations are so very important in our busy lives and it makes me happy when guests are pleased with everything! Thank you again for staying and feel free to return!
