|Minimum Stay||4 - 6 nights|
This is a pleasant 3 bedroom condo located in the Venetian Bay Villages gated community in the Kissimmee area. It is literally 10 minutes from the Disney Theme parks, 20 minutes from Universal/SeaWorld and only 5 minutes from local shopping including the outlets and popular restaurants. The unit comes fully equipped with a range/oven, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender, all the pots & pans and kitchenware needed for a good meal. Stackable washer and dryer are also included.
The home has complimentary Wi-Fi, DVD players, and TV's in every bedroom. If stress relief is in order, the Master Bathroom offers a Jacuzzi tub for evening relaxation and the living room has two sofas (with one pull-out full size bed) for extra guests. The upstairs has a separate vanity unit from the bathroom for the two adjoining bedrooms.
Additional amenities include secure playground areas for the younger kids, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts near the lakes, a nice size workout, large lake with picnic & BBQ facilities, a game room with pool table & video games, a small movie theater, large public hot tub, and 4 POOLS to choose from to enjoy a refreshing dip.
This condo and its grounds have everything to keep both active kids, and young at heart adults, constantly occupied. Venetian Bay Villages is a very nice place to stay, and hope we can share this experience with you.
I was concerned about the previous bad reviews about this property, however, we booked last minute and took a chance. UNFORTUNATELY.
Let me start by saying it takes A LOT for me to leave a review like this. We usually stay in very nice properties, but I didn't mind a sub par one on a whim.
First, the actually property, such as security gate and complex maintenance, were nice. However, when we first arrived and ready to shower, not only are the shower heads and drains caked with soap scum, there is no hot water. Luke warm at best.
On to fix a glass of water before bed (and cooking ONCE). The dishes were not clean. I don't mind rinsing a glass but one of the pans actually had a piece of old food on it. I washed, covered with foil, and again didn't complain.
Time for bed, not only are the tvs in the upstairs bedrooms from the 50's, one didn't work. My kids don't watch tv as they play on their laptops before bed, so again didn't complain. There was a HOLE IN THE DRYWALL in the second bedroom. Took a picture just in case. The beds upstairs (one in the bedroom by the bathroom especially) is so broken it makes loud noises anytime you move. Additionally, we let my mother stay in the master but BEWARE of bed bugs in the room by the bathroom as my husband received multiple bites during our stay.
Additionally, the cheap linoloium in the bathrooms are stained, bottom of toilets by the screws to the floor may have never been cleaned, and you'll notice the baseboards show the lack of regular cleaning with cobwebs and caked dirt.
Now, I would like to note we spent every day (morning to night) at the theme parks, so I never contacted the owner and complained because I did not have time, and also paid less than we usually do for the beautiful VRBO houses we have rented in the past (not available last minute).
I have NEVER had a deposit kept from VRBO owners and we travel often and far! The owner informed me that he kept $50 of my deposit. The $50 is not concerning but the principle of the matter is disturbing. He claimed we ruined two towels (which first are dollar store cheap and second, simply untrue) and that we LEFT SPOTS ON THE DISHES. Are you kidding me? Then he also complained there was urine stains by the toilet (I was not going to clean or go near the bottom of toilet since it was already dirty). And that some toothpaste was smeared on a cabinet (LOL I honestly don't know if this is true but seems minuscule)
Very easy to book, Property Manager was very prompt and responsive. Property had everything we needed for our family of 5 - work out facility, pools, hot tub, bb courts, vb courts. Only con was it took awhile to check in at the front gate the first night. Also, no microwave for the week, but Property Manager offered to compensate us for that, which was nice. We would stay here again. Location was great too.
We stayed for almost four months as our home was being built nearby. The location kept us close to everything and once we were initially registered with the main office, access was easy. The facilities are top notch with numerous pools and additional recreation facilities. The condo was clean and well maintained. Simple, but perfect for a short vacation stay without breaking the bank. Wifi is included and working flawlessly and was fast enough for just about an use required.
Great place to stay. Clean ,spacious, and convenient for the seven of us. Movie poster themes throughout. Ron was prompt communcating with us. Gated community was a little annoying for entree and exit. Heated main pool. Would stay again.
We love the condo. The whole resort was awesome. We will so be looking him up next time we need a condo around Orlando.
We had an amazing stay! It was close to everything we needed and very well equipped. The kids loved all the pools, and everyone was very friendly. We highly recommed this home!
