Really nice place

  • 4 of 5

The place is very clean & nicely decorated. The place had all we needed to cook if we wanted as well. We stayed here to go to Legoland for the weekend. It was only 20 minutes or so from the park. It is far from Disney but that is said in the description & we weren't going to Disney anyway. The pool was nice after the long day in the heat but the "hot tub" was cold. There were small ants all around the cupboards by the garbage can (across from the fridge) but we live in FL and know how this is after a bunch of rain. You can spray but they keep coming until it dries out some. The fact that they weren't everywhere shows its only due to weather. If we had ONE complaint, it would be that the air is set at 75 and you can not lower it at all. We like it cooler, especially when sleeping. If we had known that, we probably would not have rented it, but that's just our personal preference. Should be stated up front though. The ceiling fan in the master was loud and knocking on high so we weren't that comfy for sleeping. We were happy with the place in general however and the beds & furniture were comfortable & we would recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for recommending our vacation rental. As to your comment about the AC, it is unfortunate that you did not call me on the cell phone number provided on both the Rental Agreement and in the Check-in Information email that we send just prior to your check-in date. Most functions at our condo can be controlled by remote through the internet, and we would have been happy to lower the AC temperature for your stay, had we known. We have requests for higher and lower temperature settings, but in general, most guests like the standard setting that we keep. I am so sorry that the MB ceiling fan was a problem. It is being replaced this summer. Keeping the ceiling fan on a lower speed eliminates the noise. Our condo is regularly sprayed each month for insects, and we keep spray under the kitchen sink for our guests to use between the professional sprays. Thank you for mentioning the Hot Tub being cold at the Clubhouse. We checked with Property Management for Lake Marion Resort and found out that the Propane Delivery truck broke down prior to delivering the propane necessary for heating the Hot Tub, and unfortunately, the propane ran out before a replacement delivery truck arrived. I am so sorry. We take all of our guests comments seriously, and try very hard to address any negative concerns. Your honesty is appreciated.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using Home Away. The place was just like staying at a friend's home! We were there to take our son to LEGOLAND for his 4th birthday, and it was approximately 20 minutes away, just as provided in the description. We had no issues at all, and my damage waiver refund was issued very quickly (within a few days of my departure). The owners also have little signs all over the apartment telling you where to find things and label what each light switch is for so it was easy to navigate your way through the apartment and figure out what went where, etc. We didn't go into Orlando because it was about a 45 minute drive, so that was a bummer, but that's also in the description, so its at no fault of the owner... I just wouldn't recommend staying in this area for Orlando parks due to the distance. However, this will be my preferred choice for a place to stay if/when we return for LEGOLAND visits. Overall, we had an excellent experience!

Owner's Response: Nice to hear the you enjoyed your stay at our vacation rental, and thank you for your kind words. Our guests are very important to us! At the end of April 2016, one of the new sections of Poinciana Parkway was opened which helps in reducing the drive time to the major theme parks. And, when the Poinciana Parkway is completely finished in FALL 2016, the drive time to Disney, Universal and Sea World should be reduced to about 25 minutes.

Far far distance of Orlando

  • 1 of 5

The property is practically located in the countryside! We not find anything near (Walmart, Ross, Pizza Hut). We not enjoyed the night city! Everywhere we were going was an hour away! This generated a degas tell and hurt / spoiled a little trip. I have science that there is map to analyze, but only when I zoom on the map, I realized the great distance. I was misled, as much as it to inform Kissimmee, not look anything like the region. It looks farms!!!!The house is of very clean, organized and we'll decorated ! Not missed anything! !!But go tu a city and far be the main atraction was heartbreaking!

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you were disappointed with the location of our vacation rental. This is the first time that you made us, the owners, aware of your feelings on this. Our property description indicates the distance that our location is from Disney and other major attractions, so I am confused by your comments. At the end of April 2016, a new section of the Poinciana Parkway was opened, which should have helped in reducing the drive time to the theme parks. Perhaps you were unaware of the new routing. Our property location seems to be the only reason why you have felt it is a one-star property which is not really what the star rating system is designed for. Our property is located in Kissimmee, and the location of the resort is placed in Kissimmee searches through VRBO and is not something we can control. We clearly disclose distances to attractions, distances to shopping and provide detailed directions and the location of our property to all prospective guests through our online guestbook, rental agreement and directions that are provided to all registered guests as soon as the deposit is collected.

Exceptionally great acoomodations!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for 11 days in November 2015. We were extremely impressed with the ambiance, cleanliness, and set-up. The rental was fully equipped with all necessities and then some: fully equipped kitchen, towels, dishwashing liquid, etc. Even sporting equipment is provided. As a guest, your only concern should be your clothes and food. The condo truly felt like home. Additionally the compound security added to the sense of safety and comfort. The distance was of no concern when considering everything that is provided. However, I would recommend some form of transport. The owners were very professional and accommodating with their handling of reservations and arrangements. The condo was exactly as advertised.

I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone wishing to have a relaxing getaway in the Lake Marion Resort.

Owner's Response: So nice to hear that you had a great experience in our vacation home. It won't be long now before the new Poinciana Parkway will be open - Spring 2016 - and will reduce the commute time to the major theme parks by 20-25 minutes.

Lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautifully furnished and maintained, with a well-equipped kitchen and plenty of starter supplies such as laundry detergent, dish soap, toilet paper, paper towels, etc. We were very pleased with how clean and comfortable the accommodations are. The Lake Marion community is a quiet and relaxing area to stay, and we enjoyed having access to the clubhouse and pool. The community is fairly remote from restaurants, grocery stores, etc, and the Disney World and other theme parks are currently about an hour's drive away. However, we understood this going into our stay so did not count this as a downside. We had a wonderful week in the Kissimmee/Orlando area!
