solid but I expect more for 250+/night

  • 4 of 5

This could have very easily been a 5 star stay but is 3 and a half because of a few things. The lockbox worked well for our initial late arrival and we were pleased with the cleanliness and decor of the house. An initial negative was that 2 of the 3 bathrooms had NO toilet paper so I had unhappy females who ran in there upon our arrival. So we rationed the one roll between bathrooms and then made a run to the store.

The house is with 15min of the disney parks and within 5 min of a publix and supertarget. It sits on a culdesac backing to the lake...so it is in a quiet place.

The hot tub and pool were nice. The daily heating fee was $30 which is not posted in the ad on homeaway.

It was nice that the kitchen had things like a corkscrew and an electric kettle. I'm a frozen pizza guy for its simplicity when I'm on vacation so a cheap pizza pan and cutter would have been welcomed.

Both twin bedframes in the one room were either too long or not assembled correctly. So, the metal bars protruded several inches from the end of the bed. Two members of our party needed bandaids on their shins from those. The doorknob to that room was extremely loose but to their credit they fixed that the next day so we could close the door.

All in all we enjoyed our 5 nights but felt if could have much better. I also do rentals and so I know a 15 minute walk through with a checklist works wonders.

While not specific to this property and so not reflected in the rating, we detest how homeaway hides true costs with their misleading "average costs"...the "average" does not include added fees like processing, booking, cleaning, pool, nor the homeaway fee. It makes it more difficult to compare places/prices. Again, nothing against this owner/propery....just an observation to share.

Pretty, but disappointing

  • 2 of 5

Owner was responsive and courteous throughout the reservation process. House has a great layout, large pool area with lots of furniture and is tastefully decorated, but overall we were disappointed. Having stayed in other VRBO rentals, this one is considerably understocked with the basics and not well maintained. There wasn't enough toilet paper between all of the bathrooms for even 1 day, lacked kitchen staples common in other rentals (salt/pepper, dish cloths, dish soap, etc.), dirty/rusty baking sheets, lots of missing/burned out light bulbs throughout, some TVs didn't work, no pool toys, etc. The house definitely needs a deep clean and refresh. The carpet is VERY dirty, mattresses are old, and bedding needs to be replaced (stained/torn in some rooms). With a bit of attention and updating, this could be a great rental.

Ideal Home for a Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We and our two daughters and two grand kids had a great vacation. The home was close to Disney, not too bad for Universal, and we even took a day trip to a Cape Canaveral National Seashore beach. With regard to some other comments we brought a supply of paper towels, tp, paper plates, napkins, plastic cups, dish soap, laundry soap, bar soap, trash bags, zip locks, and a supply of our favorite table wines. The manager was helpful and friendly when we had questions.
