Clean airy comfortable overall very nice stay
We loved that our hosts were very responsive to our needs; only downside is that the place is okay if you are y’all—the ceiling fixtures and cabinet items were hard to reach and no step stool. Also the WiFi was really slow.
Buggy with COCKROACHES!!!!! No assistance with cleaning care, parking regulations Were very frustrated and didn’t feel taken care of as guest. Very disappointed in cleanliness and overall stay.
I am sorry you didn't feel like you were taken care of, we communicated a lot and I thought you were very happy with your stay. However, I believe this review was because we kept your security deposit. The place was left in a dismay, crushed pills all over the unit, blood all over the mattress, towels, bedding and had to purchase all new. We almost called the police as this is a major biohazard how the unit was left. It looks as though you stayed for years and no idea where the trash is. If you saw any bugs, they would be there because of all the food and blood throughout the unit. BUT we do have pest control service. Occasionally we have palmetto bugs (not roaches) due to the lake. Florida has a lot of them especially when you live on the water, these are not the dirty roaches.
I am very disappointed you left this review after everything we did for you, letting you keep your belongings and vehicle on site while you were on vacation and accommodating when needed. The cleaner refused to clean your unit due to the hazards through out and the filth it was left in. Hence why the deposit was kept.
This unit does not require cleaning, you are responsible for cleaning when needed, this is not a hotel and offer daily housekeeping. There's cleaning equipment under the kitchen sink and in the closet.
Parking is very specific, to park to the left of the garage, is states right on the check in instructions and never had any issues with guests parking. You have your own parking location at the side of the unit.
A home away from home
So much nicer to be here than in a motel during our weeks stay in Orlando while doing some doctoring. Loved the view overlooking the lake!
I was disappointed i did not have a leaving room, i ask for 4 peaople and they gave us a sofa, i could not believe it, the trush can was next to us and we could trown up every time we had to open our front door, they did nothing about it, nobody care about it, i would never go back there.
Regarding the sleeping arrangements, the listing does clearly state its a 1 bedroom with a queen bed and a full size futon, also see listing photos .
As for the trash, I received one message the day before trash day (the day my husband got back from fishing, so did have some fish in there), as soon as I received the message the trash cans got moved to the front of the home for pick up. I am very upset you stated in your review nothing was done and we didn't care. We communicated with you throughout the stay and you even stated you enjoyed your stay with us. We strive to make our guests comfortable and help whenever we can. If you was unhappy with anything, I wish you would of told me so I could of rectified the situation.
Affordable stay with a few quirks
Overall, this is a good place to stay if you're looking to keep your hotel costs down while staying in Orlando. However, do keep in mind that this property has a few quirks.
Spacious, clean, nice lake view, air-conditioned, privacy, available parking, usable kitchen, cable TV and Netflix, close to the international airport and about 30 minutes from Disney/Universal.
Uncomfortable bed, small bathroom and really awkward bathroom sink - the sink is rectangular, small, and really close to the wall right below the vanity mirror. So, we had to contort ourselves to try and rinse our face off or brush our teeth without banging our head on the mirror above or getting water all over the floor. We weren't very successful. There really isn't a good use for the bathroom sink other than to wash your hands. The property is also right next to the executive airport - so, lots of planes taking off and landing - but, the noise didn't bother us too much.
Home is situated 5 min from Downtown Orlando, 15 min away from International Airport, 20 min from Seaworld and Universal, 25 minutes from Disney World. Close to everything. Restaurants are walking distance.
