We were born and raised in a small town on North Vancouver Island, BC, Canada. We have been together for 20 years and have two beautiful red-headed girls, 10 and 5. Disney World was our first family holiday and we fell in love with the area. Someday in the future we might retire there!
SABRINA purchased this Villa in 2010
Why SABRINA chose Kissimmee
Comfort; Pioneer Pest Related Services, the largest short term rental pest control company in our area and I have been doing pest control for 30 years. We have a very important interest in the success of the homeowners and management companies we do business for. Your success is our success. Our customers have been putting food on our tables for 30 years. We believe in being very straightforward, this problem is very serious and there are no shortcuts, any short cuts will lead to more severe costly future problems. With an aggressive proactive plan, the latest integrated pest control methods and good old fashioned hard work, we believe we can tackle any of these bed bug problems as they arise. Our method has been very successful and we put in the much needed time and energy to ensure the job is done right. It is very time consuming, proactive and aggressive with future follow up treatments and inspections. It is the only proper and affective way to treat bug beds as far as we are concerned. We spray all the infested areas, including the carpets, bedding, furniture etc. We also include crack and crevice treatments with a tiny straw like tip that gets into the cracks and crevices where the bed bugs try to hide and breed. If just this one treatment is skipped the other treatments are all for naught. Without this step in the treatment process the bed bugs will keep coming back especially when someone is in the bed because they come out for their food supply which is blood, then they go back to hiding in the cracks and crevices of the bed or furniture. I have heard of vacationers going to bed and waking up the next day with dozens of bites. When doctors are checking to see if someone has bed bugs they look for 3 bites in the same vicinity because that?s a common sign and they call it ?breakfast, lunch, and dinner?. It may sound funny, but it is disgusting, especially if a child or elderly person or if someone in your family get bit!

Clean, Spacious, Comfortable home away from home
My husband, daughters and I stayed 5 nights and couldn’t be happier. The location was perfect, close enough to the parks without the traffic and congestion all around us, very relaxing to come back to at the end of a long day. The pool was heated and my girls enjoyed every second they spent in it. We had no problems during the stay and Kevin and Sabrina responded to my emails within 30 minutes prior to the stay and answered all my questions. We will definitely stay here again.
A little tired
Overall the property was spacious and had the potential to be a lovely vacation rental.
However some general maintenance is required:
Pool requires a proper cleaning
The air conditioning vents in the ceilings are dirty
Many dishes in the cuboard were dirty
No spatula for frying pans
Wine bottle opener broken
Leftover garbage from previous renters
Lacked essential items such as paper towels, garbage bags, salt and pepper, dish soap, dishwasher soap, laundry soap etc.
Pillows in some bedrooms are heavily stained and should be replaced
Stains on mattresses
Carpeting needs cleaning
When we inquired about supplying more toilet paper we were advised that this is self catering and supplies are only required for the first night.
Thats fine, we can buy supplies, however considering we have to fly home, we were unable to take the unused items with us. ! We had no paper towels, one large garbage bag, two dishwasher tabs and no laundry soap!
And here lies the problem; many of the dishes, glasses and pots and pans were dirty in the cupboard, likely because the past renters ran out of dishwasher tabs and didnt bother to purchase more. Also, the request to wash linens and towels would be better accomplished if a supply of laundry soap was available. Having purchased these items, we know that the expense is minimal and we would have gladly paid $15 more to have them included.
The garbage was another issue as we arrived on a Friday when the recycling should have been picked up, but we were faced with both it and regular garbage overflowing the bins. Terrible smell from the garbage every time we went out the front door. We had no where to store our garbage and only one large garbage bag to use.
When we arrived Friday the water level in the pool was down a foot. We found two coins at the bottom of the pool which had been there for a very long time as they were tarnished and etched, the walls were green at the top (no pool brush to clean it) and the skimmer had bugs in it as if it hadn't been cleaned out in a while. The pool was heated as requested, however, on Thursday we were asked to top up the pool which made the pool cold for the rest of our stay.
Overall we enjoyed our stay but this home requires some maintenance and attention to detail. By skimping on supplies, guests are unable to comply with requests for garbage management and laundry. A close look at your property management company may be in order.
I had to chase the owner down the day of our arrival as I never got the info for access via email .
The house was not clean there was cleaning supplies out until the next day when we got back.
The worst by far is that in the middle of my golf round the day before we were to check out I got an email from the owner and a text and two phone calls that the cleaners were at the house and needed to clean for the next check in at 8 am the following morning. It was resolved but I did not need the stress and thought we had a 10 am check out the next day but had to be out by 7:30.
Overall communication was very poor. would rather have stayed in a windowless basement room that smelled like mold in a Days Inn and have things been more smooth.
Vacations are supposed to be calming!!!
As a habit we don't usually cater to short stays like this one because they do not leave a window to have the house cleaned properly before and after the guests. The access info was given out before the guest arrived onto the property. Disappointing but we did drop the ball nevertheless. The guest were accommodated with this stay on the stipulation they would check out early for a thorough spring carpet cleaning for the upcoming repeat guests. Our 25 reviews are all 4+ stars so we are proud of that and take great lengths to make every visit a great one.
IN ACCORD TO TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Located in strategic place to go shopping and to visit the parks. Comfortable and quite. When I needed support, The administrator and owner resolved the requirements quickly and politely.
Great place to stay with your family
It was very wonderful !!!@
Great house and great house service
We stayed for 11 days at this house. The house was clean and well maintained. Lot of space and it has video games and a pool which should keep young ones fairly entertained. We had problems with the internet and the AC froze but we place calls to the house keepers and they responded fast. The house is fairly close to the parks and have plenty of restaurants and other venues close. Recommend this house if you have a big family
AS A MATTER OF FACT ONE IN THREE CANADIANS PREFER AND CHOOSE TO STAY IN A VACATION HOME FOR THEIR HOLIDAYS. AVOID THE LINE-UPS AND CROWDS THIS TIME, YOUR TIME FOR RELAXATION. MOREOVER IT WOULD BE CHEAPER TO STAY IN A VILLA THAN A CROWDED HOTEL. ON TOP OF THAT YOUR VERY OWN POOL AND BBQ!
