Wonderful Experience!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time doing a vacation rental like this, so there was a little apprehension with the unknown. The apprehension quickly went away; from the moment of our arrival everything worked like clock work. From checking in at the main gate to registering at the clubhouse everything was perfect and went off without a hitch. In our group of 12 family members, we had ages from 5 to 83. All ages enjoyed every aspect of the house immensely. With a master bedroom on the first floor, that was definitely a winner for our more senior family members. The pool and the hot tub were big hits with the kids ages 5 to 16! The house was extremely clean and very neat. The proximity to restaurants and/or grocery stores is excellent. Pretty much any type of food that you want to eat is within a 10 minute drive. Disneyworld is also literally 10 minutes down the road. Universal Studios is a little further away, approximately 40 minutes, but not a bad drive. Our family to a person had zero complaints about this property; on the contrary, we were all a little disappointed that we did not spend more time at the house and utilizing the pool and hut tub. Ruby was very responsive throughout the reservation process and her is wonderful. If and when we ever go back to Disney we will schedule our trip, around the availability of this property. I would highly recommend staying at this property.

Spacious Clean Great Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

If you want to stay in a safe, convenient, clean vacation home where the owner is responsive and accommodating then this is the place. House is huge with a different theme in all of the bedrooms. Well equipped with all you'll need to allow you to relax and enjoy the tranquility of sitting by poolside or enjoying the game room. Large TV in the living room and all the bedrooms. This is the second year our group has stayed at this house and we look forward if possible to use this house again for our yearly reunions.

Location close to Disney and with plenty of restaurants and shopping. Ruby and Dave are simply wonderful. You need not to worry or want for anything.

Vacation in Paradise.

  • 5 of 5

Awesome is the first word to describe this home. Our family has been visiting Florida for 30 plus years and we have stayed in every accommodation available. Having a large family and one disabled adult has always made finding a suitable home difficult. Ruby and the Property Management (Dave) were quick to respond to any issues. The house was well equipped with ample dishes, pans etc. The house had an elegant decor. The pictures matched what was online. The bedrooms were clean with fresh linen. I would recommend small hands towels in the bathrooms to save on using the huge bath towels. We have stayed many time in this community so we knew it was safe. There were plenty of toys for the children and the carriage was a great help. We brought a carriage but we needed two and saving on that rental was great. The pool guard kept the younger children safe but needed some repair. The outdoor grill was the best after a long day at the Parks. Dinning in saved money and allowed more relaxation at the pool. The crib was small for a two year old but we made it work. We bought a gate to place at the bottom of the stairs for safety and left it at the house. We had plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. The short cut to the Parks via Shurbert Road saved time and avoided much traffic. The only recommendation I have is there should be a dish strainer at the kitchen sink so that the dishwasher won't have to run each day. A laundry basket would have also been helpful to carry the laundry for 12 people out to be folded.

Ruby was very open to any concerns or needs of the family. . We had originally planned to return in 2018 but are seriously contemplating returning in 2017.

I would recommend this home for anyone wanting the "magic" experience of Disney and Universal.

Thank you Ruby and Dave for making 2016 the best vacation ever!

Wonderful house for large gatherings

  • 5 of 5

We have rented at least 4 or 5 other houses in Florida and we were not disappointed for picking this one. Ruby was attentive and responded quickly to emails. She made the whole process easy and straight forward. Although we had no real issues I would like to offer the following pro and cons to give a fair overview of the accommodations.

Pros

1) Large house in good repair. This house is different from the floor plan described in the pictures. I let Ruby know this and that will be updated. The layout was actually better as all bedrooms were attached to a bathroom. 3 had their own separate and then the others had a Jack and Jill between them.

2) Lovely community that was quiet and clean.

3) Community Club house (20 minute walk) that had most of what visitors needed including attraction tickets. The staff was friendly and helpful.

4) Location was close to Disney (we didn't go to Disney this time) and only 25 minutes from Universal.

5) The wifi was fast and was solid throughout the house.

6) The pool area complete with a outdoor cooking area was enjoyable and we had great weather for using it.

7) The games room/garage was nice. Air conditioning and when the door was closed to the house, a minimum amount of noise from the pool table could be heard which was great for sleeping grand babies.

Cons (nothing serious but wanted to be fair)

1) The hot water went out 3 times (because of the size of the house, there are 2 hot water tanks, so in all fairness we had hot water in some of the showers if really needed). A phone call to property management got this addressed quickly. The longest wait for a repair person was 5 hours (the first call, after that about 2 hours) which I consider quite quick.

2) (this is both a Pro and a Con) Dave the property manager never answered his phone when I called so I would have to leave a message(Con), but he always returned my call within a couple minutes each time (Pro).

3) The cell reception wasn't great. Not an issue unless your attached to you cell 24/7 such as kids and now some adults. We're from Canada and we used Roam Mobility for our cells. I believe they use T-Mobile for service.

4) The kitchen area is starting to show some wear and tear, but nothing that would take away from the overall experience. Some floor tiles have some chips and the fridge being close to the isled chairs had some marks. Not an issue for us but wanted to complete in our review.

We would recommend staying at Ruby's house.

Great home for a large family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with a group of extended family, 16 in all. The house was perfect for our needs. Each family was able to have their own bathroom which was nice. The game room and large tv in the den were lots of fun for our kids to hang out together and play pool or watch movies. The pool and hot tub was a hit. The kids loved swimming in it when we got back to the house at night after visiting Universal Studios. And us adults enjoyed hanging out around the outdoor tables and chatting. It was a great setup for us!

Our reason for visiting the area was The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. We chose to stay in a house because we love the convenience of having a full kitchen, etc and it's cheaper than hotel rooms for a group our size.

The house is 20-25 minutes from Universal. Not a bad drive at all. We also drove to Crystal River one day and Siesta Key Beach another day. Each of those is about a two hour drive from the house so it's doable for a day trip.

One complaint we had was the Wifi didn't work. We tried connecting with multiple devices and none of them would connect. We asked the maintenance guy about it and he suggested turning off and on the modem which didn't help. It ended up not being a big issue for us because we used our cell data when needed and the kids were so busy with other activities they didn't really miss it, so we didn't pursue the problem but if you have to have it for work or something that should be addressed.

There are several restaurants near the house. We ate at Outback, Joe's Crab Shack, Papa John's, and a local Chinese place. There is also a Winn Dixie, Walgreens, and Publix very near the house along with several other stores. (I'm mentioning those because we actually went to them.)

The house was very clean and we would definitely recommend it to others. Ruby was a pleasure to work with. We had some last minute changes to our vacation plans and she was very accommodating.

All in all it was a great vacation and we very much enjoyed our stay at the house!

Owner's Response: I am very glad that you had a good time in the house. I am very sorry for the Internet problem. I found out after you checked out that the cable from the modem to the router was missing. I put one back in and it worked right away. We always urge guests to put things back after use. I guess for some reason the guests stayed before took the cable and did not put it back.
