Dirty and not well maintained
We could not open lock box to replace front door key so had to leave it on kitchen counter. The link to contact owner did not work. There is a hole in the wall near the shower, likely due to water damage and mold, the kitchen cabinet door fell off when opening it, beer cans in the back yard, pool dirty with cigarette butt in it, only a thin bead spread on beds, door knob on bathroom door not working - left you stuck in bathroom, bath towels left something to be desired, rugs in front of shower dirty, no dish towels, no outlets worked in either bathroom and TV bedroom did not work.
Great Home Away From Home
Overall, the house was very fitting for all of our needs and very close to multiple grocery stores, downtown, and many attractions (Disney, TopGolf, GoKarts, and PuttPutt). There was plenty of room and sleeping spaces throughout the whole house, very clean, and had everything needed (towels, pots, pans, coffee maker, utensils, grill, pool toys, sheets, and cleaning supplies). Very big backyard and pool, lots of chairs out in the backyard. Owners were easy to contact if and when we needed to ask questions and were very friendly. I would for sure rent this house again if I make it back down to Orlando.
We got this house because of the slide and outdoor pool, not realizing that the indoor left much to be desired. The pool was awesome - private, lots of pool toys, and always warm. But the house is really out-dated. Everything was sub-par: the towels were super thin and barely covered your body, there were no large pots to cook for a family of five, the bedding was bare minimum.
The showers were simply dangerous. The hot water was way too hot and could scald you. The master bath shower was installed incorrectly, so you had the option of chilly or scalding. It is definitely unsafe for young children and after 2 days, even my husband and I couldn't use it.
There is a Publix very close by, but it's located 30 minutes from Universal and 40-45 minutes away from Disney. It's right next to the highways, so it's an easy drive. We went during July 4th, and the neighbors were launching fireworks until 11pm. The neighbors were all very friendly and we were able to share in the excitement with them.
We had a wonderful vacation, but we spent 3 days at the parks and the rest of the time in the pool. If you're looking for a quiet neighborhood with a great pool, this is lovely. But the accommodations indoors need to be updated with better quality towels, toilet paper and soap. And the showers need to be fixed!
It worked and pool is great!
I read other comments and think people are much too critical. The size of the house is good and the pool is great. Would I stay again, probably. I agree with comments around plumbing (especially shower) and the master bed is not horrible but is extremely squeaky so you wake up when your partner moves. It is all workable but would suggest just more maintenance....such as ensuring house and pool are cleaned just prior to new occupancy (pool was initially dirty and dead or half dead bugs can be an immediate turn off in the house...first impressions are lasting). A general clean up of the porch and yard would not be a bad thing. Again, it is not the Ritz and we didn't pay for the Ritz so felt it fit the bill for the week.
Nice home but needs some updating, landscaping and cleaning
Home was nice and easy to access. Bathroom faucets need repaired, baseboards need cleaned, need some spot wall repair, landscaping front and back is poor, some mold in bathrooms. Location is near airport and has restaurants and stores nearby.
Not as nice as the pictures make it look
The owners of the property were very flexible and were easy to work with until I had a complaint about the firmness of the beds and the smell of the house. After that they accused me of being a liar and repeatedly stated that their property was perfect. My family and I ended up staying at Disney property just to get out of there because in addition to beds the pool and backyard looked nothing like the picture, the grill didn't work, the kitchen was very worn down as well in my opinion.
I reached out to the owners to try and work with them and offered a very fair resolution but that went unanswered.
Also please disregard the Home Away guarantee it is completely useless, they will not do anything if you have any issue with the property except ask you to file a report and then they will state that they do not resolve disputes, the recommend you post a review instead.
