Highly impressed

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tara's home. It was cozy and beautiful, just perfect for my family. The pool was the perfect temperature and inviting on those hot Florida days and the home was a haven away from the parks. I was pleasantly surprised at the items provided. All of the paper goods, hand soaps for both bathrooms and dish soap were provided. All of the necessary bath towels, pool towels, and bed linens were provided. Also, the kitchen was fabulous and had everything we needed. Free Wifi was also a welcomed bonus! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this roomy villa and we would book again in a minute!

Ok house

  • 2 of 5

The pool was nice but you have to pay extra for it to heat. The modeling around the floor was coming up, a few sinks where leaking. But besides that it was nice to have a private pool and house. Oh and we found cockroaches in the kitchen the last day we where there. But even though it was a nice looking place we will most likely go to a hotel first then go back.

Owner's Response: Hi Andrew, Thank you for choosing to stay with us, and I am so very sorry you did not enjoy your stay. I take great pride in the maintenance and operation of my house. As I am a traveler I do understand that it is upsetting when things don’t work out the way you want them to. However, 1. Regarding the molding coming up, not sure what or where it is coming up because I would like it looked after immediately. the house was fully inspected on Dec 22 by the housekeeper and maintenance person and on Dec10 by an independent contractor 2. All the rental homes charge extra for pool heat as it is very expensive to run, the other homes do not have solar heat which helps during the day, as the weather was very hot …in the90’s I didn’t consider discussing it further as I did not hear back from you. 3. By all means it sounds as if you might be happier in a Hotel, but at $100 per night I am not sure you will be able to have the comfort, cleanliness and amenities and privacy that my rental home provided, but it sounds as if these amenities are not what you need. 4. As for the COCKROACHES….. wow!!!! that is awful, as Florida is tropical, it is the norm that bugs in many sizes and varieties are abundant…. That is why the entire house inside and outside is sprayed monthly, not as others which are sprayed every 3 months, the house was sprayed Dec 2nd, in the 4 years I have been renting NO ONE HAS EVER COMPLAINED ABOUT COCKROACHES AND I MAKE VERY SURE AS MUCH AS IN MY POWER TO MAKE SURE THIS NEVER HAPPENS, so I am truly surprised and sorry you had this experience.. However, even the most expensive and exclusive resorts and hotels are at risk. 5. This is a private home which is equipped for rental, so it sounds as if you would be happier in one of the more expensive and exclusive resort hotels, …. as with all homes there are always something to attend to 6. The guests immediately before you flooded the sink and counter in the master bath and the entire unit has to be replaced, because there wasn’t time to complete the work which will take at lease6 hours. I do believe the maintenance person brought this to your attention and explained the problem, gave my apologies and explained this to you to which you replied “you did not have an issue”. So very sorry, but I wished that you would have let him know how you truly felt, and I would have discussed it with you and would have understood if you wanted to move to another accommodation or given you the pool heat.

Nice Place, Good Location, Responsive Owner

  • 4 of 5

House was nice and clean. About 15 minutes to Disney and 40 to Universal. 5 minutes to Walmart. We would stay again. A few comments:

Sliding door on the back going to put to pool was a pain, had to lift it back onto the track several times.

The propane tank was empty. We were all ready to start grilling and had to run to get a refill.

Blender was broken.

The dryer quit working one day, but it was promptly repaired.

We were only provided two pods for the dishwasher and a 10 day stay. Hand-washing wasn't a big deal, but 10 pods when there's such limited dishes is not enough.

A garage door opener for the car would be nice, again running through the front door isn't a big deal.

Mattresses were super firm.

DVD player doesn't have HDMI out on it, so no HD if you do if rent or bring DVDs.

Suggestions:

A few more dish pods, buying a bag isn't economical like it is for laundry.

Update stereo and DVD player. The stereo is not meant to be used with the TV and goes into power save mode when there's not enough sound coming from TV. DVD player does not support HD.

Fix the back door.

Just some minor comments, we had no show stoppers or major complaints. The owner took care of everything right away. It was a great deal for two couples. Much better than a hotel and at a hotel you would not even have access to some of the luxuries I commented on.

Owner's Response: thank you very much for the feedback, it is always appreciated. in response to some of your concerns 1. I am very sorry about the patio door, I was waiting for a part to fix the door, unfortunately it was not available in the stores, but it was immediately fixed, I understand you frustration. 2. dish pods, paper towels laundry detergent etc. is not a part of the rental, they were left there as a courtesy. are not included in the rental fee 3. the b-b-que is also a courtesy, there is the note in the house binder, that guests are responsible to keep the tank filled. Sorry, but we do not check to see if it is filled, just to see if it is cleaned and covered 4. Garage door openers seem to get easily lost, so it is not included. 5. sorry about the mattress and DVD player, it is something we will take under consideration. 6. as for the dryer, there was a sock which was caught up in the fan, the dryer lint cleaner must have been left out or not put in securely and a sock ended up in the fan. thank you very much for choosing to stay with us. Warm regards, Tara .
