American holiday

  • 5 of 5

The property was as described in the listing,very clean and comfortable,it had everything you could need for your stay,the pool was lovely and was cleaned each week. The villa was in a nice location not to far from Disney World and other attractions, I would highly recommend a visit to the Titanic Artefact museum and to Disney Springs.If you want to go out to eat in the evening, just a short walk from the villa there are some nice restaurants or within a short drive you can find more. The owner provided good customer service and I would certainly recommend this villa to friends and family.

Not impressed

  • 2 of 5

A high price for an average property. The decor was very tired and the towels, linen and bedding of poor quality and not clean. The biggest disappointment was paying extra for pool heating but the pool never getting to a temperature that was warm enough to go in. The TV room was excellent and the Blu Ray superb but very little worked in the games room so we did not use it. The air conditioning was set very high and we were not allowed to adjust this meaning the house was always too warm. Overall, I am afraid we were not impressed at all.

Owner's Response: We are very surprised at the comments made. At no time did the guest contact us with any complaints and we even rang the guest to ensure everything met their expectations. The guest also left the following message for our management company " We arrived safely at Orlando Charm, . All good and no issues, we have filled out the paperwork and left on the kitchen side bar". This review is completely opposite to what previous guests have commented.
