About Amy Zhao

Guestbook comments from the owner

"What a wonderful week you made possible for our family in Kissimmee, FL, July 1-8. Your check-in instructions were very clear and easy to understand. The house is outstanding. We actually had room for the eleven of us to spread out a bit. Shopping and dining are easily accessible and we had no trouble getting to and from Walt Disney World. We were able to take a couple of days to just relax around the villa. We thoroughly every moment we were there.



As far as I know, we did not break anything and left everything in order.



Thanks you so much for providing us with such lovely accommodations."

Anxious to Return (in 2017) :-)

  • 5 of 5

This was more than renting a place to stay while in Florida visiting the different Disney Parks. I am from a very close-knit family and some of us have moved away and/or get caught up in the everyday fast pace of life, so this was an opportunity for all of us to spend time with one another. This property made catching up an amazing experience. There was more than enough space for everyone to have their own bed to sleep, we were able to sit and eat together as a family, leave out for the parks together, and just spend time with one another without having to worry about who was at which hotel, etc. The house was clean and very pleasant. Amy is an absolute joy! She responded to emails very quickly and helped make the trip stress-free considering that where you stay on vacation is often the biggest hassle.

We plan to do this trip every other year, and we will most definitely be staying at this property if its available.

Here in 2011, back in 2017 under new ownership and disappointed...

  • 3 of 5

I actually give the house a 2 for the week. A solid 3 IF it receives a thorough cleaning & game room repairs. Some furniture &household items r worn, broken &/or stained. Not "Luxury" & a 4/5star rating is N/A, IMO. There r many beautiful homes in the area. Choose wisely so u don’t feel cheated. Cleanliness???: Amy has assured me that she is having a detail cleaning scheduled after reported neglect, hence my 3 stars. Sliding door, floors, bathrooms, ground in &outside the pool, bedding, carpet, laundry room, pillows throughout, & "game room,” etc., should be clean soon, let's hope. Games: Pool table/hockey table r still in poor condition. Pool table unstable &missing rack. Strikers missing felt. Issues reported, not addressed for us. We had a hot dirty garage w/ broken unusable toys, not a game room. Offered unknown amount for the non-game room but we wanted the issues dealt w/ during our stay & for future guests, not $. Hopefully others won't be unpleasantly surprised. Kitchen: Plenty of dishes, utensils, cups. New pans needed. No baking sheet &the blinds r still problematic. Nice tiles. We enjoyed making meals &visiting. Flow of house is great. Upstairs: Layout nice w/3 full baths. Beds comfortable. 1 of the bunkbeds was missing a part & needed screws tightened. Someone came the next morn to fix it. Unsecured framed poster almost fell on a head. Upper master @ end of hall allows for privacy, except the lock. Just pull, it’s not locked. Reported, not addressed. Upper banister loose. Reported this but watch your babes! Many lamps are missing the piece that holds the shade in place. It’s not just cosmetic, it’s a fire-hazard & reported. Pool Area: Lots of fun! Resort pool is great but it’s wonderful 2 have a private one. Outdoor furniture desperately needs cleaning or replacement. Ground around pool icky. Rented grill was ready to use upon arrival. Family Room: Great place for relaxing on comfy couches. You can watch the men cooking from the couch while ur working on a puzzle ;-) Amy earns a 5 for communication. She’s been very responsive & apologized but I believe she needs to revisit her property 2 ensure the description matches what you actually get. Offered $ back “To make up for the issues you have encountered during your entire stay.” Declined, as the $ amount vs. time spent feeling deceived doesn’t match up. A family vacation is a VERY BIG DEAL & you should be able to rest your head in clean-safe-places while you're away from your own.

Owner's Response: Thanks for writing the comments. I am glad that guests found the beds were comfortable, kitchens were well stocked and had a good time in the private pool. Guest reported a couple of minor issues upon arrival. Those issues were addressed right away to guests satisfaction. A air hockey rod was replaced after the game room was checked. I also agreed to reimburse the cost of a blender when the guests said they needed a new one (which was not bought in the end). A few cleanness issues were reported towards the end of the stay and guest asked for detailed cleaning. Detailed cleaning takes 1-2 days and the house needs to be emptied for the next 3 days. Therefore, it could not be arranged during guests' stay and has to be scheduled ahead of time (it is usually done 3-4 times across the year while no guests stays in the house). It would have also helped owner to understand the exact issue if there were photos sent along with the report at first. I am sorry I couldn't agree to a full refund as guest requested after check-out, but I am glad that they found the communication a 5-star. Current owner took over the house in 2014 and did a number of major renovation including tiles, new sofa, new TV etc. Close to 100 groups of guests have been hosted since with all positive reviews and 4/5 star ratings across multiple listing websites. Guests feedback is always appreciated as it would only help us do better. Thank you again and have a nice day.

Needs some updates

  • 5 of 5

Wasn't to happy that we spent over $100 dollars on food to grill out and couldn't use it due to the grill not working and no lights in bedrooms and a leak in the front window

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Amy was amazing to work with! Great communication! We had a very minor issue with the air and it was all resolved while we were at the park! Comfortable house, no issues at all. My nieces and nephews enjoyed the pool area. The house fit all 16 of us. Lots of kitchen space for cooking and room to spread out.

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay! We had ample room for the 12 of us both bedroom, bathroom, and gathering wise. It was perfect to have a kitchen for breakfast gathering before venturing out for the day. In the evening, the kids enjoyed the game room in the garage area - pool table was a hit! There are a few cosmetic items that need tending to - in particular the blinds in the kitchen and family room areas. The freezer was not working properly but I have been told this will be taken care of. Loved the convenience of the washer and dryer. Towels and bedding were in good shape and everything was clean. Since it was cool when we visited we did take advantage of the clubhouse pool. Tiki bar was fun too! The personnel at the registration desk were super-helpful as were the gate gaurds. We felt very safe and at home. It does need a little TLC but I would highly recommend this property as a perfect place to stay. We would definitely book again! Thank you, Amy, for hosting us and for being so prompt in answering our pre-trip questions. Your home is a winner!
