Beautiful home, Great Pool, Location and Owner!!!

  • 5 of 5

At first, you will never find a nicer person to rent from. The owner responded promptly with any of my questions and concerns. We arrived in Orlando a day before scheduled and she did arrangement for us to have a good stay although we had a late call.

Everything was as it stated it would be. House was white glove clean,and had everything we needed for our stay. We called local management company for some minor issue and they respond and deliver immediately.

The pool was fabulous and comfortable! Love it and do not want to leave. The kids enjoyed swimming in pool and loved relaxing in the living room watching movies. We have ever visited Disney several times before and stayed in several vacation homes during Jan/Feb so we know how outside pool is impacted by weather. For the first few days the pool was not warm due to weather but we had a great enjoy for the last few days. Owners' entry document and guide provided in the house are very helpful, for example, bring carry-on laundry detergent tablets(all vacation homes do not provide laundry soup). Every time after we arrive one vacation home, we always spend half of an day in shopping food and other things. That experience makes us relaxing and feel like at home!

The location was perfect for a Disney vacation. Besides being miles from the Disney parks, we were so close to any shopping, restaurants and grocery stores. All interaction we had with the owners was great! We will definitely stay here again in the future!

Nice Home

  • 4 of 5

We loved the open concept of this home and it's high ceilings. We had plenty of space and everything we needed as far as cookware, dishes, towels, etc. were concerned. There are just a couple of things that would've made our stay more enjoyable: a Keurig...the standard coffee maker provided made terrible coffee and we wish the kitchen had been just a tad cleaner. The cupboard doors and drawers were very sticky and the shelves inside a little dirty. I hesitated to be so critical, but thought it might be good feedback for future action by the homeowner. Other than these items, we really enjoyed our stay. We were really close to all the Disney parks, grocery stores and restaurants, which also was a plus. Loved the pool!

Good Family Base

  • 4 of 5

We had a good stay at Yan's property and would absolutely book again!

There was way more than enough room for our family of five. We all loved the big pool and hot tub after long days in the parks. We actually spent a couple of our (very hot) days in Florida just relaxing and hanging out in the pool. We spent several days at Universal Studios during our trip, and the drive to and from took about 20 minutes. The house is close to a Target, tons of restaurants, Disney, etc. The location and neighborhood are fantastic. The house was clean, and as with most rental properties, we understood ahead of time that we would need to purchase toilet paper, soap, shampoo, etc., so that was no surprise.

When we arrived, we could not find the extra towels (my mistake) and the wifi was not working. A quick email to Yan and a phone call to the manager, and within a couple of hours the manager was at the property with a stack of brand new towels and someone to fix the wifi issue. Great service and very appreciated.

The only reason I did not give five stars is because the cosmetics of the house could use a little love - painting, freshening up the landscape and pool area, new carpets, etc. I'm sure having frequent renters makes the cosmetic aspect very difficult to keep up with. Otherwise, we were very happy with our stay and look forward to coming back in the future. Thanks, Yan!

Black Culy Hairs and Smelly…

  • 1 of 5

Upon our arrival (after midnight) we entered the home to the blaring sounds of a smoke alarm with a dead battery. It took a good half hour to locate the problem alarm, but we were unable to find a latter to reach it, as this home comes with absolutely no supplies, not even extra toilet paper, cleaners, hand soap, pillowcases, etc. By 2am we had stacked up enough furniture for my husband to climb up and remove the alarm- it was a dangerous feet but finally we could get some sleep after a long day of travel. We were so tired that we crashed on the dirty beds with threadbare sheets and stained yellow pillows. However, first thing in the morning we drove to the nearest Walmart to buy new pillows, pillowcases, laundry soap and bleach to wash the dirty sheets, toilet paper, hand soap, shower cleaner, and new towels, as the ones provided had black curly hairs on them. Very gross! By this time I was thinking that we could have stayed in a five star hotel for what this place was beginning to cost, and to boot we lost a half day at the parks- instead we were home washing sheets with a dryer that is on its last leg. That night after a tiring day at Disney (after the smoke alarm fiasco kept us up so late the night before) we came home early to relax in the pool and spa that we paid $170 to have heated, and to escape the musty smell inside the house emanating from carpets that have likely never been updated since the home was built. The pool was ice cold! We contacted the owner and he sent out his maintenance guy the next day. From the looks of it, the maintenance guy felt everything was working as it should and he left it at that. We gave it a try three more nights in a row following his instructions to a T. Yet, the pool was even icier! Eventually the owner refunded us $65 for a pool and spa that was never used! This was our children’s Christmas present- an expensive home that wasn’t any better than a cheap and unkempt Motel Six with a broken pool. Save your money or spend it elsewhere- This place is a dump! FYI: We have stayed in Indian Creek many times and have had an exceptional stay in well-kept homes. However, this trip taught us the value of reading reviews before booking a home- never again will I make that mistake again! P.S. My boys insisted that I mention the broken leg on the pool table which made it utterly useless.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Here is my answer: 1. Guest shall call local management company for urgent issue(7*24 for urgent issue). Smoke detector battery are routinely changed. But if you had this issue unfortunately(low possibility), call local manager immediately. Local manager/owner both did not get call. 2.Pool heater has no problem. It has been working fine. The weather in the first few days are cold in the night and early morning(below 50). It gets a little warm late in the afternoon. But then it gets cold in the evening and morning again. Pool heater runs from 10am to 10pm. It takes long time to heat tons of water. BTW, our pool is the biggest pool in that community. In addition, because spa and pool heat share same system, the pool heating time takes much longer when you used spa frequently(water only circle in the spa instead of pool). we have pool cover to protect warmth of pool. Per guest request, they asked to turn off heat for the last few days, I refunded the heating fee for the days heater turning off. 3. No laundry soup/bleach is provided. Hand soap bar is provided. There are extra pillow cases(or contact local manager). If you need extra towels, feel free to let local manager know and they will give more. All above info are provided in the entry document sent out to guest. 4. Carpet is clean. In summary, for guest, read details/instructions about entry document and call local manager if you have urgent issue. That will make things easily and smoothly done. Thank you very much for your cooperation.

it was good

  • 4 of 5

Upon arival at the place 3 things that bothered me and my family. Upon arival we notice that the refrigerator is missing some shelves which is needed if your going to stay for a week at the house. 2 the sofa on the living room have wood sticking out and the door handle on some of the room closet are missing. 3 the pool was green and dirty. However once we contact the management and the owner they got into action and clean the pool in which is needed asap so my family can enjoy it. The one that made me give this house a 4 star instead of five is the first impressions with the pool. Other than that the house is nice and decent and my family and I really had a great time.

Owner's Response: thank you very much for your feedback. For the first 2 comments (refrigerator door shelves missing and sofa wood), both are already fixed. Here I would like explain pool usage. There is pool usage instruction guide along the pool side. Pool level has to be maintained in certain level. Or else, pool will not circulate and become green within one day. In summer, when guests play in the pool and splash water out of pool, it causes the pool level to be lowered than required one. We instructed guests to use the water tube to pour more water in the pool to get required water level.That will make circulation work and pool will recover. This is NOT related with pool cleaniess. Pool is cleaned each week by pool company.
