First and foremost when booking this house, or any house for that matter, is that it IS a rental house that other people besides the homeowner have lived in so there are some things that the owner can't control.
The real issues for the 15 of us that stayed at this house are minor:
-Not having enough dishes/pots/pans to accommodate cooking for that amount of people (again, could have walked away with previous guests)
-Light bulbs were out in a decent amount of lights/lamps so we had to move some around to make do
-Game room was nothing more than a foosball table and a pool table with 2 broken cues (tips were removed)
A Couple major issues:
-2 ceiling fans didn't have pull chains and were stuck on low. Maintenance came out to look at it but said shy of replacing the fan he couldn't do anything
-Says is sleeps 16...not so much due to the fact that the pump for the air mattress was missing. Glad we had kids that didn't mind sleeping on the floor!
-Don't leave anything behind. Communication was good before/during the trip. But the minute we left and forgot something at the house the owner up and didn't answer emails
We'd definitely stay here again knowing a couple things were fixed ahead of time. Its a easy ride to Disney as well from the house.
I was originally supposed to check in to this property, but the owners double booked. Once we arrived to the house we noticed another group already there. It took 2 hours for the property managers to find us a second home to place us in. 2 hours!! We were on the road and extremely tired. Poor communication with the owners and the site customer service. After the 2 hours, we were placed in a house that was way cheaper than the original listing. The game room was dirty and disgusting. The Foosball table, air hockey and pool table were all flimsy and about to break down. The air conditioner was barely working upstairs. We paid for pool heat so it can be ready by the night we got there. But since they moved us to another house we couldn't use pool heat. The refrigerator wasn't cooling anything at all. The following day we called to complain to the owners and maintenance. The maintenance person took 4 hours to get to the house. We were trying to use the grill and the pool that day. He showed up for for 10 minutes with new equipment for a broken Gameroom that we couldn't use. He opened the air vents up stairs but it still wasn't cooling much. He said someone was going to come over for the fridge and someone else to clean the pool and fix the pump that it was missing for the pool to circulate. We left 3 hours later and those guys still hadn't shown up. They supposedly showed up but the pool was still dirty. That's another day wasted we couldn't take advantage of what we had planned that day due to a bad home and bad service because of the error of them double booking. When I kept complaining to them and said I demanded a refund or a partial refund they said that's something that has to be taken care of with VRBO. We paid for pool heat which never had, the stuff inside the refrigerator got damaged due to the fact that nothing was cooling correctly. The hot tub outside never got hot either. This was clearly an emergency backup house due to their double booking error. But everything in the second house was broken or damaged. I was asking for abother house but I could barely get past the language barrier with the owners. We had no choice but to stay at this cheap property .
The first house which was 8500 sunrise key, was a disaster when we got there and it was not what we paid for. So we called and they immediately placed us into another home that was exactly what we paid for to begin with.
overall its a great company to do business with and we are definitely renting from the again in the future! Beautiful place!
