Holiday Home in Fiesta Key, Kissimmee, Florida, USA - Exclusive, Tranquil Gated Community

About Teresa Goodman

I am a Primary Teacher living in England. My husband and I bought the property partly as an investment and partly to give us an excuse to continue returning to Florida! We have children (now grown up) who enjoy Disney and the Sunshine state. Now with grandchildren just starting to arrive, there are even more reasons to visit the parks! We enjoy the fun that can be had in Florida but also like some time to relax. The "Hunnypot" has everything you need for that "home from home" feeling, with plenty of room to relax after a busy or even "not-so-busy" day.

Teresa Goodman purchased this house in 2007

Why Teresa Goodman chose Kissimmee

Fiesta Key is a gated community. It is also very pretty; all the houses are different shades of pastel colours and have varied fronts. It is a small community with only two roads, one of which is circular. It is very quiet. Our home backs onto water that is home to ducks and other water birds. There is a jogging path that goes around it. Our back exit and sun lounge overlook the water. The swimming pool is close by. The pool is very large, adjoins a clubhouse (with internet access) and gym, and is invariably empty or with very few people! There is also a tennis court. A children's playground is tucked away in a corner of the resort. Fiesta Key is only 10 minutes from Disney and all the amenities of Kissimmee and Orlando.

What makes this house unique

At our home I suppose one of the biggest benefits that sets it apart from others, is its tranquility and prettiness.

We also have a hot tub in the sun lounge at the back that is particularly wonderful late at night on a hot day, when the stars are out and the moon is shining - good to listen to the water bubbling and watch the changing colours in the water from the lights in the tub.

Free Internet access is available in both the home and in the clubhouse (just take your laptop, tablet or mobile phone).

Everything you need to make you feel at home is provided.

3 bathrooms and a cloakroom saves any waiting around and the shower cubicles are very spacious.

The home is kept immaculate by our management company and if any problem should occur they are on hand.

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was located in a great gated community. The hot tub was amazing as well. It was very spacious and very well kept. The amenities included was also a plus. I would definitely recommend this home for your family vacation needs.

You get what you pay for

  • 3 of 5

It's good that I waited a couple weeks to write this review because my family and I were quite upset at the overall experience. However after taking some time I decided the fairest review was to say you get what you pay for. This property was one of the least expensive options and that is what we were looking for. You cannot expect a Mercedes and pay a Kia price. Since we live in Florida (about an hour and a half away from Orlando) we have rented many, many properties over the years in Orlando and have stayed at some truly nice properties; all of them nicer than this one, but also all were closer to the parks and more expensive. So again, we got what we paid for. We were in town for a volleyball tournament and we did not anticipate being at the property much, so we did not want to pay for luxuries and ambience, we just wanted a clean place with four walls to sleep. In general, this property met our objectives. To be satisfied, or at least not to be dissatisfied, future renters need to have the same goals going into this property. The "need to knows" are as follows: (1) overall the place is clean, but as in other reviews, the ant problem in the kitchen is still very present. Do not leave ANY food out or dirty dishes on counter or the sink. This is due to inadequate pest control services. I live in Florida too and do not have this problem; actual preventative pest control services ARE possible. If you would like me to recommend a company, I'm happy to do so. (2) whether new or not, the fact is the mattresses in every room are way below average and some sleep will be sacrificed. It's like sleeping on a pile of shredded cardboard boxes. (3) same comment for the pillow as the mattresses. Bring your own pillows if you can. Very thin, poorly made and uncomfortable (4) the televisions are extremely old and not flat screens. (5) it's in the rental agreement, but know going in that you can only park 2 cars in the driveway and you will be towed if you park on the street. Since the property has 4 bedrooms and sleeps 8, it is more than a remote possibility that more than 2 parking spaces will be needed. I also want to state that the owner was very responsive to our concerns during our stay.

Owner's Response: It is disappointing to hear when someone has not enjoyed their stay. 90% of our guests are very happy with their accomodation; we have guests staying for weeks/months at a time and returning guests. The beds are fairly new and we and others have found them very comfortable. The description given here does not in any way represent the quality and feel of the mattresses.There are a variety of different pillows to suit different tastes but we take on board the comments and will check these out out and replace as needed. Guests have stayed since and not encountered the ant problem. Pest control is carried out quarterly and any issues are addressed immediately. We are checking with our Management company to see what further can be done. It is difficult when the problem is no longer apparent. There are TVs in every room along with separate cable boxes in each room. There are flat screen TVs in the lounge and one of the master bedrooms. We are about to change the second master bedroom to a flat screen. Until now we have never had reason to believe the others needed changing as they provide good pictures and are only secondary to the main tv. Fiesta Key is a gated community that has regulations to make the community a pleasant, safe place to stay. Parking is not allowed on the roadways overnight. Parking for two cars on the driveway is stated clearly in the rental agreement that has to be read and agreed before making any reservation. It should also be noted that parking for another car can usually be arranged for outside the clubhouse, given reasonable notice to arrange.

Owner's Response: We are pleased you found this a good place to stay. We have only recently been told one of the beds needed replacing and this has been done. We are sorry we were not aware before your stay. The beds in the twin room were changed earlier this year and the other two bedrooms had beds and mattresses replaced last year. We thank you for pointing out this problem as we want guests to have a comfortable stay.

centrally located, quiet and spacious.

  • 3 of 5

The security of the community is great but housekeeping and maintenance of the house needs to be improved. The house is very nice but we had issues with the air going out but maintenance walked us through the steps of fixing it. There is a major ant problem in the kitchen which they were willing to spray for. We had to make the owner aware of some damages that were there when we arrived which took time from my vacation I didn't intend on spending. The bed in the master bedroom upstairs broke when my husband sat on it after being there for 5 days. After looking at it closely we noticed that it was previously broken and fixed poorly. Contractors came to fix it and confirmed that it was indeed broken and they fixed it the same way but with thicker wood. The beds are really low to the ground.

The owner accepted that we had two small dogs with us and when maintenance came in to check the air they questioned my brother about the dogs and sd they will check with management to see if we can have the dogs. This vacation wasn't what I expected it could've been better. The house is located around everything and it's gated which is a plus. The owner is great she and her husband resolved my issues but it was alot of things they just weren't aware of. We didnt get to go to the pool so I can't comment on that. I didn't like that we had to walk so far to the gabage dumpster but we drove instead.

Would I recommend this property? Maybe

Would I stay at this property again? No, I want to enjoy my self and not worry about losing my deposit for someone else's damages.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry when someone is disappointed with their stay. The issues were unfortunately things that could not have been anticipated, however these were resolved straight away by the Management company as soon as we were made aware. The air conditioning stopped temporarily but was easily fixed. We are getting a contractor to check out the unit while there are no guests. Pest control is carried out quarterly but is a continual problem in Florida due to the high temperatures and humidity. Should any problems occur in the interim period the company will come out to treat the area as soon as requested. The bed is of a platform design and comparatively new. We chose this to avoid the squeaking problems we had with the original box spring beds. It appears there was a weak spot which has been repaired and re-in forced to avoid any repeat of the issue. We have stopped accepting dogs in the home but had already taken the advanced booking. Due to this crossover, the Management company were being vigilant on our behalf and just needed to check. Fiesta Key is a small community. The garbage compactor is located adjacent to the clubhouse. The community is not big enough to have another or closer. With the home being used almost continuously by visitors during the peak summer period, it has been difficult to allow time to attend to the wear and tear that has resulted. These can now be addressed. We always endeavour to listen to our guests and rectify any issues at our earliest opportunity.
