Lots to like but does need some TLC to bring up to modern standards
We did have a good time in our 2 weeks stay in 7788. All the basics, A/C, Hot water and pressure for showers, TV, WIFI, Fridge freezer, etc all worked fine. The house was reasonably clean. There were additional charges for Strollers, High chair & cots noted by the agents, but there are three different size strollers in the garage left by previous users along with high chairs and cot
so no need to bring with you.
We were 5 adults and 3 year old child and chose this house as we required 3 double bedroom with on suite. The house can sleep 10, but the living and seating area is limited and at full occupancy you may struggle for space.
The house is showing ware and tear and does need to be refurbished in several areas. Numerous doors and draws in the kitchen need to be replaced, along with several in the bath rooms. This along with several of the kitchen cooking equipment which are unusable and could be place with new plastic replacements. The dishwasher, washing M/C & dryer all work, but are showing their age and are not as good as low cost modern day models.
The pool area did not appear to be cleaned and had lots of damage floats, and discarded items which we cleared away along with weeds on between the pavers. There was no lock on the access door and one of the insect panels came down. On calling Lawrence he was able to arrange to have the door lock fitted the following days but it took 2 days before the insect screen was fixed. We therefore had lots of bugs and leaves etc in the pool. There is a pool cleaning net but this had a big hole in the end making it of little use and kinder sums up the general need for replacement and refurbishment to bring up to the original level when first constructed.
As we were staying for two week we were supposed to have a second set of linen, but when we needed them on the first night none were to be found. These were delivered the following day when we called, but should have been part of the initial services checks.
We did have the pool heating on for the first 3 days are we were the first to occupy the house for a while. The pool did get cooler but not so that we could not use. The pool does need a good service clean on sides and bottom.
With the correct upgrade and refurbishment this could be a 5 star residence.
We did not use the Windsor Hills main pool which looks good and the Windsor Hill complex is excellence for access to Disney. We had not problems with entry or with security access.
Very close to Disney World, restaurants and shopping
Overall we enjoyed our stay at this property. It is conveniently located to all the Disney properties and right down the road from plenty of restaurants. We left early each morning and were parking our car within 10-15 minutes. We had one small request of the property management group the first day we were there and it was taken care of before we returned from the parks that very day. Would definitely give the management service an A+ for service. The living area had a very nice large TV and the bedrooms had small TVs, but to be honest we really didn't come here to watch TV. While we did enjoy our stay, I am only giving the property 3 stars because of the obvious wear that the property showed. Definitely needs a good coat of pain on the entrance walls and kitchen cabinets.
This is our fourth experience renting a home in Florida for vacation and our first time writing a review. The pictures of the property had to have been taken some time ago as the home is in need of repair. In the kitchen, one would struggle to find one cabinet facing that is not damaged. The clock over the sink does not work. The windows looking into the yard need to be cleaned. The kitchen utensils are lacking and the pans are completely unusable as the Teflon coating is wearing off the pan and gets into the food. The appliances do appear to be newly purchased and are in good shape.
Throughout the home the floors are coated with ground in dirt. We had an infant with us and his clothes, hands and feet were constantly dirty from crawling around. Similarly, the walls and all the trim need paint. The blinds overlooking the pool are broken and laying on the floor.
In the garage you will find a messy floor. The pool table is unusable because the pool sticks are broken. Also in the garage is a washing machine that sounds like it is going to explode. You can hear it screeching throughout the house and outside!
There were only three face cloths in the entire home and the pillows are awful. Some of the white linens are stained with bodily fluids.
The televisions are tiny in the bedrooms.
The pool area is nice but there were a few pool toys just laying about the deck.
It is a shame someone hasn’t taken the time to keep this property up as it is quite roomy and very close to Disney.
Pool freezing cold until 4th day.
The house is a very nice place to stay and convenient to all the Disney parks. Also an easy drive to Universal and the airport. It's so wonderful to have a pool right outside your door, HOWEVER, we paid for 6 days and only able to swim one. The day we left the hot tub was up to 94*.
