Sports & Adventure Activities
Great property in a good location for all the parks and other attractions.
The Villa is well equipped and to be fair out of all the other places we have stayed in and around Orlando on previous trips probably the best. Larger than expected, pool constantly heated and on a great site. Pool over looks the lake, great for alligator spotting. Thanks Karen for everything and we will most definitely be back!!!!
Lovely property in quiet Cul De Sac
We have been to this estate before as it's really quiet and safe probably the best you'll find , they are all nice house's and the beauty of this one is it's all ground floor which is why I chose it , no stairs ! It's also in a cul de sac which makes it even quieter. Lovely view of the lake and fountain, plus Gary the Gator as we named him
Master bedroom is huge as is the en-suite bathroom there's enough room for a game of 5 a side football. Massive 6 foot wide bed and a shower big enough to do handstands in , which you may have to do as there is a just a fixed shower head and no flexi hose !
Second and third bedroom are joined by a Jack and Jill style en suite bathroom which was brilliant as we had a baby with us and she could sleep in a separate room but was still joined to her parents room. 4th bedroom we didn't use.
Pool was warm and the spa pool got lovely and warm . All the pool furniture "soft bits" are now brand new . We know we changed them ! Pool man comes once a week to top it up and clean it , we happened to be there when he came so I think it got a better clean .
Didn't use the games room so can't really comment on that but it's there if you are that way inclined , bring your own darts though as there are only two left.
Kitchen has everything you need except a grill , which they don't seem to have in the USA , however there is a Kettle and a toaster so that was breakfast sorted . We eat out most of the time , you don't go on holiday to cook do you ?
Got to see Gary the Gator in the lake a few times , I'm guessing he's about 5 1/2 feet long , I didn't really fancy trying to measure him with a tape though .
It's about 20 mins to Disney and an hour and a bit to Kennedy Space center , obviously you need a car for that.
All in all I'd recommend this house to anyone and wouldn't hesitate to book it again..
Nice place to stay
We stayed here for 19 nights in October, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The pool deck is well positioned to get the sun all day, and the pool was heated just to the right temperature, the kids loved it. The house itself was generally in good condition, and the couple of issues we found and passed on to Karen were then dealt with straight away by the management company. The parks were all a short, well signposted drive away, as were plenty of decent places to shop and eat out. Thanks again to Karen for all her help and we would be pleased to stay here again next time we travel to Florida.
The villa was well equipped but the pool area was quite shabby and needed some renovation
Unfortunately we arrived the week following hurricane Irma and the screens around the pool were damaged. This meant that the pool area was out of use due to the volume of insects and frogs which were around all the windows and doors and inside the pool. It was an ongoing task to keep cleaning the area. The pool was a vital facility that we looked forward to due to the unusually extreme hot weather. When we were hoping to be able to come back from exploring for the day to relax in the pool only to find it was out of action. The jacuzzi area of the pool never worked at all. Again we looked forward to this as my disabled daughter receives hydrotherapy on a weekly basis. Very disappointed. When checking with the owner prior to arrival if the rental could still go ahead. We were told that the damaged screens would be fixed before our arrival. It may seem petty and unfortunate due to the circumstances of the hurricane, but the pool area is part of the main focus for our holidays. However the shabbiness of the pool area including the furniture had nothing to do with the hurricane. We have been holidaying in Florida for over 25 years and we did feel slightly let down.
Thank you for your review. I am sorry that your holiday was affected by the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. Since this post, we have been in communication privately on this matter for me to obtain more details, but I am keen to reassure future guests that all is well at our villa.
I had been told by my management agent that they expected to repair the pool deck screens before your arrival. As so many properties were damaged, the necessary supplies to achieve this could not be obtained before or even during your stay. My Management Agent felt that the pool deck was fully usable during this time and I am sorry you didn't share their view. If I had believed the villa was unusable I would have cancelled your accommodation booking even at short notice.
In circumstances where things are not as expected on arrival, I would encourage any guest to contact the Management Agent immediately so they know you have a problem and are not happy.
In this situation they may not have been able to completely repair everything immediately as they were swamped by the amount of house repairs that needed doing, but I believe further temporary repairs may have been possible to improve the situation for you if you had contacted them.
You particularly comment that the pool deck was shabby. The outside fan was broken in the hurricane and was awaiting repair. The pool deck had been newly painted at the end of August. The pool furniture is outside in all weathers and colours will fade but are fully functional. No other guests have ever commented adversely on the pool furniture but I will check with my agent that they remain in good repair.
I sincerely hope that your family still had an enjoyable holiday. I understand that access to a pool and screened pool deck are an important part of that. I am very sorry Hurricane Irma such caused difficulties for services in the local area that your holiday was disturbed.
Great value and good location - with lovely pool
Karen was very helpful in answering queries before our stay, and assisting when a member of our party was ill. Would recommend.
Lovely villa, very spacious in lovely setting
Lovely well equipped villa, well maintained and clean. We had a great stay here, and even got to see some alligators in the river behind while we were in the pool. And a couple of raccoons. Would definitely recommend a stay here
