Home Away From Home
The stay was very comfortable as if I never left my own home. The property was well maintained.
The house was lovely. Very large for our small group of 4. It was a good home base for our activities. The neighborhood was quiet with the exception of some local construction (roofing). We paid for pool heat, which was sufficient for our afternoon swims, but not for evening swims, particularly the hot tub was not warm. Heads up on responsibilities of occupants during the week, such as garbage day. Make sure to read the home manual well, so you don't miss these required duties. Otherwise, it was a lovely experience!
Thank you for your review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay.
Even Better Than The Pictures
We had an amazing vacation at this beautiful home! This was our 10th year vacationing in Orlando and I have to say that this was probably the best villa we’ve ever rented. The rental process was smooth and easy to navigate. The information that we needed to access the villa was sent in a timely fashion. The rental company was friendly, professional, and very easy to work with. Upon arrival at the villa, we were surprised that the villa’s interior was not only true to the pictures, but even more beautiful than what the pictures captured. We had requested pool heat and were pleased to find that the pool was heated to perfection when we arrived. We enjoyed coming back from a long day in the parks or sightseeing and relaxing in the pool and spa. On our 3rd day there, the jets in the spa wouldn’t come on. I contacted the rental company and they sent someone right away. By the time we returned from our day out, it was fixed. AMAZING SERVICE!!! The beds were so comfortable that I had to sneak a peak at the mattress brand and fully intend to buy that same mattress for my home. The TVs all had a variety of channels to satisfy everyone’s needs. The check out process is extremely easy and is noted in several places for you to view. The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you would need to prepare a meal and eat with. The only 2 things that we noticed that are easy fixes is that the ice maker on the refrigerator doesn’t function properly because the water leaks into the freezer instead of into the ice maker and the dryer is very slow to dry clothes. Neither of these presented a problem and we were still able to use both appliances. All in all, this villa was a great experience and my family and I would most definitely like to rent it again in the future. Thank you so much for an amazing vacation and the opportunity to spend it in your beautiful home! ~~ Julie and Michael Sprecher

Great house , we had an amazing time
Just one suggestion for the garage game room please add an AC unit or a fan
So we could enjoy more that area of the house
Response to Review for submission
Thank you for your review, it was lovely to hear that you had an ‘amazing time’ and that the home was up to our usual high standard of cleanliness.
With regard to air-conditioning units, these are not fed into the garage games room due to the fact that if they were ever remodelled back into a garage (which does happen) the air conditioning vents could take toxic fumes from the garage back into the rest of house the air-conditioning venting system. We have contacted our area manager regarding putting a fan in place for future guests.
We do take guests comments seriously as we endeavour to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Take care and we hope to see you again soon.
Beautiful home will definitely stay again
Beautiful home! Perfect place to make memories with family and friends!
We absolutely enjoyed our stay in this beautiful and clean home! There was plenty of room for 6 adults and 4 kids to have space to spread out and be comfortable. Between the pool, the game room and the living areas we were all very happy. The kitchen and family room was a great gathering spot. The kitchen was a perfect size and equipped with everything we needed to cook our meals. We could not be happier with the overall cleanliness of this beautiful home. The beds were so comfortable after long days at Disney parks. Loved how there were plenty of signs posted through out the home giving you information/instructions you needed . Any small issues we had during our stay were taken care of promptly. Management company was friendly, professional and prompt. The only draw back for us was having 3 vehicles. With HOA rules regarding parking on the street overnight and the driveway only having room for two, trying to squeeze 3 cars on the driveway without blocking the sidewalk was not really possible. But I do understand about HOA rules just wish there had been a common area for parking the 3rd vehicle without fear of being towed. We definitely enjoyed our stay and we were already making plans on staying again next year before we even left. I hope other families enjoy staying at this beautiful, spacious and clean home as much as we did! We can't wait to book our next stay!
