Owner rented and professionally managed with utmost attention to detail.
I would definitely recommend this home to family and friends. I know we will be staying again in the future!
We were able to get a last minute booking at this fantastic property and I just can’t say how pleased we were with this home. The house is huge and every room is so spacious and well designed it was just perfect. The property manager, Mat was able to guide us with every question we had during our stay. It’s a big house so this was very helpful, especially getting the electronics going. I loved the way the owner has kept the modern clean feel of the home in a world of harry potter, frozen and zootopia. The location can’t be beat either. It’s a really quiet neighborhood but sooo sooo close to everything! We were able to go to Universal, beaches, Disney parks and even walk to some fantastic restaurants in Champions Gate. We were 3 families traveling with kids and there was a thing for everyone. Air hockey, ping pong and darts and pool table were active treats for older and younger ones alike. We also enjoyed the lazy river, cabana by the pool (Yeh Marcos!) and volley ball. We will definitely be back.
I was hoping to find a special place for a family gathering last year and started my search on Homeaway. As soon as I saw this listing in Champions Gate, I looked no further. The house exceeded my expectations and was even more beautiful in person then in the pictures shown. The house was in a perfect location, was beautifully decorated, and included everything we needed to accommodate for our group of 3 families, 17 people. I loved it there and felt as though I had stopped the world to get off for a few days in heaven! The owner Raj and the property manager Mat were eager to help for everything from kids car seats, grill accessories and getting our pool heated when we needed it. Overall a great experience, just could not ask for more. With late night visits to the Disney parks, we could even find time to lazy in the river and watch "The Little Mermaid" movie at the Oasis.
I plan to go back with my family next year and can't imagine staying anywhere but at Champions Gate!
This is a BIG house. We were 9 adults and 7 teenagers and we all had a great time. Specially the kids with all the fun stuff for them to do in the house. All the rooms were big and the beds were really comfortable. The kitchen and living room were nice and was in a really good neighborhood with a lot of restaurants and shops nearby. The clubhouse was really good with great food and atmosphere. Everything was in order. We had 4 parking spaces that was good to have.
We had some small issues. Specially the A/C should be better in this big house. Talked to Raj about this and I think they will install extra A/C where there is really a problem. Specially in the Cinema room and the garage that is a play room. We had to have on the roof fan on the bedrooms in the night because it was too hot. That helped, but it was a bit noisy. We rented a grill that was too small that we didn't use it. Think they will change grill provider.
The only thing that made this a 4 star instead of 5 is that it is a bit away from "the real action". They say it is 15-20 minutes away from Disney and other places. That may be true, but only in night when there is no cars on the road. Because it never took less then 30 minutes each way. More normally it took 40 minutes and sometimes over an hour (one way!). We were after a while getting good at checking the traffic on google maps to avoid the long queues and get alternative routes, but 15-20 minutes it never was. Because of this I can't recommend Champions Gate to other people coming to Orlando that have never been here before and want to be where all the famous stuff is. Specially in the high tourist season with lots of traffic.
First of all, I was very pleased with how quickly the owner responded to email. A+++. We loved the amenities at the club house. Home was nice. Good location. Really appreciated that trash was picked up regularly (very important for large group). No real complaints, but I would highly recommend owner consider purchasing three twelve count muffin tins (to replace the one six count) and at least two more pizza pans (to add to the existing one)... found these items to be insufficient for a house this size. Otherwise, good experience.
PROS: Raj, the owner, was very quick to respond to my inquiries. He provided information that we needed for our stay, well ahead of time. He has a beautiful and spacious house that accommodated my family.
CONS: The maintenance of the home could have been better. I'm assuming that the property manager should inspect the home upon departure and prior to arrival. Two of the bathrooms had dirty towels with hair on them and a broken pair of sunglasses was found on the floor in one of the bedrooms. The sofa in the living room was stained and the padded lanai furniture was stained and dirty. The vertical blinds for the back sliding door, which provided access to the lanai and pool from the dining room was very hard to open and did not close properly. This was a problem because the only other access point from the house to the lanai and pool was through a bedroom. The property manager was notified about this problem and he/she left a note on the front door stating that they rang the doorbell and got no response. Although, the driveway had two cars there because we were in the pool in the back of the house and no attempt was made on my cell phone. The glass top stove was damaged and the barbecue grill that we rented was dirty. The garbage bench in front of the entry to the house was highly unpleasant to use. It reeked of old smelly garbage and the plastic liner needed to be replaced. The smell was so offensive that I had to hold my breath to put garbage in there. One family member tried to deodorize it because the odor was that bad.
We made the best of it because we were there to have a good time. The morning after we checked out, I received an email from the property damage insurance company, that a claim was filed for damages to a pullout drawer in one of the bedrooms. This was very surprising to me, since we lived in and out of our suitcases for that short stay. These "damages" were noted as a liquid stain in the drawer that could not be repaired and required a replacement of the drawer. I found this a bit suspicious, since we never used those drawers. The damages were taken care of by the insurance company and I did not incur any additional out of pocket expense. It's rather amazing to me that the property manager could find a "stain" in a bedroom drawer, but couldn't see and address the obvious issues mentioned above. Lastly, I would never rent property with this property manager (Tara/Mat) again.
