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!

Very Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

To begin with, upon arriving we began unpacking . The lights don't work in one room and neither do the wall outlets. I contacted the manager and he said he would have someone come out. A day later a man shows up and with cars parked in the drive way decides he's going to unlock the door and barge in unexpectedly. The kids were watching television in the living room and got scared when they saw this man walk into the house eninvited. The kids ran to the bedroom scared. Also after buying groceries we went outside to throw some trash away and discovered that the two trash cans were completely full of trash as well as the recycle bin. Flys were everywhere. There was a notice on the recycle bin stating that they could not pick it up because the items within were not recyclable. Because of all the trash the flies somehow found their way into the house. We were killings flies by the dozens (not exaggerating) and even after contacting the manager again nothing was done about it. The pool was green and merky, according to the agreement Thursday's were designated pool cleaning days. A man showed up late in the evening and said he would be there the following day and left. According to the manager he stated that the man was supposed to check the other items we enquired about but didn't. After 8 days of no corrections, I finally decided to contact the home owner. She was more concerned about having me email her a list of things that needed to be done so that she can take care of it for the next renters. I would absolutely not recommend this house.

Owner's Response: We appreciate of guest business. Here is my feedback: a. Guest reported issue about light. Local management company quickly responded and sent out somebody to fix it next day. b. Pool guy does pool cleaning every Thursday. Due to many homes, the stop by time might be different. Pool guy explained to the guest why the pool became green. spa was turned on by guest and not off, so water only circulate in the spa instead of pool. Then pool guy turned off spa. It would take 1 day for pool to be back to clean. c. Guest complained about that local management company did not help with garbage. Here there is misunderstanding. Garbage collection day is Monday and recycling day(Friday). Garbage collection is handled by community instead of local management company. Even though garbage left from your guest(guest departure day is not always garbage collection day), current guest had to handle it. If garbage collection day were missed, then had to wait for next collection day. Unfortunately Local management company has no place to dump the garbage. In summer, the garbage is easily get boiled after 2 days. d. The only call I got happened on the day prior to his departure(Sunday). His call kept disconnected and I had to call back several times. If i did not care guest, then I did not need to call back. I asked him to send out me the list of thing (which I never got) and I would help resolving immediately. He only said it did not matter because his departure day was next day and he would leave the bad review. What could i help? During the call, I explained him about garbage collection day and kindly reminder him to move out garbage on Monday to avoid impacting next guest.

Good house for price

  • 3 of 5

The house was in a good location close to all the Disney parks.

Good size and space although it was a little outdated.

One observation we have is that the house was not fully clean when we got there.

You could see restrooms were not fully cleaned.

Also I guess the maid never checked the garage because the last renter left an open bag full of trash and egg shells and after 2 days when we realized it was there the smell in the garage was pretty bad. Not only that but it was full of warms that we have to clean ourselves.

Also there was trash outside spread out on the garden. And for that we called the manager in charge and he sent a cleaning lady to take care of it.

But besides that the house was ok and the price was good.

Owner's Response: thank you for feedback to help us continuously improve. My local manager or myself both did not get details about restroom cleanliness. It is better to call local manager during your stay to help you resolve the concern immediately and also help us improve process. I have asked my local manager to pay more attention. For garbage, I have detailed instruction in the entry document. Guests need to pull garbage can to curb side on the collection day or before departure. If passing collection day, it is high cost and difficult for local management company to find out place to dump the garbage. Also cause inconvenience for next guest. The home is up to all guests to help maintain. The trash spread out on the garden is due to raccoon. Raccoon keep playing with garbage if there were food outside. It is common issues in Florida.

Great location, spacious home, great pool, nice quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Although we loved this house, the pool, the layout we were shocked that it cost extra for not only a BBQ Grill but the ability to heat the hot tub? The pool I understand but the hot tub needs to be hot. The other issue is the air conditioning...it only goes to 73 and I think during the nights it would shut off since in the middle of the night we would wake up sweating and the temp would 76. For us Mainers that is very hot and uncomfortable. The king and queen beds were very comfortable but my adult daughter and her friends had the twin rooms and they informed me that the beds were not comfortable and very creaky. We also come from a town that does not recycle paper, plastic, cans, bottles unless there is a deposit. It was very hard to have two separate trashes with only one trashcan. Plus it was slightly confusing as the directions at the home said glass was not recyclable and that trash day was Monday and recycle day was Friday. However when I was looking online after we left to come home it said that glass was recyclable and that trash days were Monday and Thursday. I am not sure what was correct but because of the house info we did not put the trash out the morning we left and I did not put class in the recycle bin.

Other then the few minor things that I have mentioned, I would recommend this home to others.

Thanks,

Trisha Cote

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for liking this home. At first, I would clarify several your confusions. Glass is recyclable. Mondays for regular garbage and fridays for recycles. There are two trashcan. One is for recycles. There are signs in the house. Secondly, pool is free to use. But it is very common/generic rule for vacation homes to charge extra for spa&pool heating. Same for BBQ. This is clearly mentioned in the website. Thirdly, AC is setup at fixed temp at 73. And it works without issue.

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!
