About Joanne Collins

We're a busy family with 2 energetic and fun loving boys (8 and 4 years old) who love Disney and adventures on the road...

Joanne Collins purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Joanne Collins chose Venetian Bay Villages

We love this property because it's surrounded by so many awesome things to do! You can't go wrong in Kissimmee/Orlando because there's so much to do - and of course, the quest to escape the cold Canadian winters!! Friends of ours purchased at Venetian Bay and LOVED IT! We envisioned it for our family and know that we will be creating wonderful vacation memories for our family as well as for other families who come and stay in our home!!

What makes this townhome unique

We love Venetian Bay because of the proximity to all things fun and exciting, but the resort itself is cheerful, tranquil and really makes us feel like we're on vacation! It's a great getaway. We are lucky to have found such a great vacation home and enjoy sharing it with others...

Needs updating, but ok for the price.

  • 3 of 5

Overall, it was ok for the price. However, the beds and pillows were old and in need of replacement. Overall things were clean, but we did have to take apart the vacuum because it was clogged. No telling how long it had been like that. There were also dirty baking dishes. I understand that the cleaning crew is not given time to search through everything, but it might be a good idea to give the place a good once over before leaving. For being an attached condo, it was quiet and we rarely heard the neighbors. The complex is ok. There is some need for updating there as well.

Very nice.

  • 4 of 5

There was plenty of room for all 8 of us. It was well sticked. The only thing that could be better is the sofa and love seat. They sag to the center and that makes you sit a little crocked, but not so much as to make it very uncomfortable.

The most importnent thing is the owner. She was great. Very nice and did everything she could to get us settled in. Thanks Joanne.

Clean, comfortable, well appointed home, in a beautiful vacation setting

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy to find such a great place to spend our March!

Lots of space in the house which had everything we needed for comfort and convenience. The surrounding grounds are absolutely beautiful, and I made great use of the pools and work-out facilities.

Joanne was so easy to deal with and gave us total peace of mind when we booked.

Can't wait to come back next year!

Older property needs updated!

  • 2 of 5

This property, along with the others in this community, were built as vacation rentals for families on-the-go to Disney and area attractions. This is a good location for visiting the parks--only 15-20 minutes, depending on time of day as traffic can be heavy. Only used the downstairs of unit during our visit, and the king bed was okay--a little soft if you have back issues or are used to a firmer mattress. Adequate sleeping arrangements and bath facilities for 4-6, but could use more hand towels, wash cloths, dish towels and dish rags. Bring own laundry supplies, TP, Kleenex, Clorox wipes, etc...

The pools (4) are well-kept, with nice walking sidewalks, and has an onsite (small) game room and organized movies in a special "theatre" room for kids. Fitness facility is very small, but was never too busy. Clubhouse is nice and the office is manned during daytime hours.

On the downside, the cleanliness of this unit did not meet our expectations at all. The sitting area sofa and loveseat were extremely uncomfortable. The kitchen is very small without cabinet space to put any of your own groceries, etc. Again, keep in mind if you're eating out everyday and only eat breakfast here, it's doable!

The stack washer and dryer work, but the washing machine has an area in the tub that silky items or items with drawstrings (men's bathing suit) gets caught and it's difficult to get them out without tearing a hole in the garment--we had 3 incidents.

With the exception of the kitchen and baths, this unit is completely carpeted--difficult to keep carpet & edges clean in rentals and obviously cleaning company isn't moving furniture.

A/C is on a timer and automatically turns itself up to 83 degrees toward evening making it uncomfortable for sleeping.

Sidewalk is uneven so a cone sits in front of door. Oak trees line the sidewalk dropping acorns & seedpods--just messy!

We checked in Friday late afternoon, contacted the maintenance company Sat. morning with our concerns, left a message and never received a call-back. We emailed Joanne, the owner, and she took our concerns into her own hands with the mgmt. Co. She is pleasant to work with and there is definitely more space here than a hotel room for a family of 4--6.

Recently checked & found other units within Venetian Bay Villages that have been updated & appear nice in pics at a comparable price; while this particular unit is dated and could use a facelift~

Very nice and clean unit and very safe community

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this property for 4 days. Everyone in our party liked unit. It was very clean. There was no odor in any of the room. Community is safe. They have nice swimming pool. Enough parking space was available, and Wifi range was good. One thing that bothered us is to change fan speed. We had to climb bed to control speed. Wall mount regulator could be better option or existing control should be at least easily reachable. Also one of the fan in upper level bedroom was very noisy for 2-3 days and it did not work at all on last day. My friend was in that bedroom. So he complained that he could not sleep properly that night because of Fan issue. This is a reason I could not give 5 stars. But overall it was pleasant stay. I would certainly recommend this property to my friends.
