Dirty and hot!
The tub, carpet and bath were old and filthy. The shower barely worked. The drain didn't drain. That air conditioner turns off at night so its 78 and humid inside every morning when waking up. Would not recommend or stay here again.
Orlando Family Vacation
I was pleasantly surprised to find a kitchenette with a full sized fridge. This wasn't listed on the description and it was really handy for our family to use. The living room was spacious enough for our family and the dinette set was a great addition too. The sleeper sofa was thin and uncomfortable to sleep on but it was only for two days. The bedroom was huge and both queen beds were fairly comfortable. Plenty of storage/closet space for 2 days. The only problem we had was a HUGE problem! The air conditioner was "frozen over" and not working. It was 82 degrees in the property when we arrived that evening. We immediately called the owners to notify them. They initially accused us of turning the air conditioner down too low and causing it to freeze over. We told them that we had just arrived and had never touched the thermostat. I don't think they believed us. Although the owners weren't in Orlando they sent over a friend to see to the problem for us. The friend tried to use a hair dryer to defrost the air conditioner. He recommended that we go on with our vacation and let him deal with the issue. It was so hot in the property because he had to turn the thermostat up into the 90's to help defrost and also use the hair dryer to heat it up. We went out to dinner and stayed out of the apt. until close to 11 pm just to give the apt. time to cool off. The friend kept in touch with us via text/calls while he was in the apt. and we were at dinner. He notified us when he was leaving and also that he fixed the problem but had called an air conditioner tech to come the next day to make sure that the air conditioner was working properly. When we came back to the apt. at 11 pm, it was 79 degrees. Better, but not great! By 6 am the next morning the thermostat was back up to 82 degrees. It was stifling in the apt., there were no fans to use and our family was miserable! We texted the owners again and waited for the air conditioner technician to come. I asked the owners to compensate us for the problem but he just circled the issue multiple times never offering to refund at least the first night/day that we spent in sweltering heat! It was hotter inside than out. We finally just dropped the issue as we chose not to let it ruin our vacation. We had driven 23 hrs. from Iowa! The air conditioner was in fact broken but fixed by the time we got back that next night. We checked out the next morning. All in all this VRBO was fine for what and how long we needed it.
GOOD ENOUGH FOR CHEAP STAY
Nice enough condo but nothing spectacular. It was clean and the property is excellently located near the popular tourist attractions. We wonder why the building designer put only one elevator near the entry and two waaaay at the back of the building.
Good place at a good location
Many of the light switches don't work, and couldn't figure how to get dining room lights on.
Kevin thank you for staying at our place. Ligth switches work, I wish you would have asked me to explain you how to turn it on.
Downtown Orlando condo
This was a very nice privately-owned condo, in a large hotel, most of which is a regular hotel open to the public. The accommodations were clean, attractive and comfortable. There were a few dishes that needed re-washing, but that could have been from a previous renter.
The owners were very responsive to inquiries, and refunded our damage deposit promptly. We also considered the price reasonable, especially as it was right in downtown Orlando, and close to the theme parks. If downtown Orlando is your thing, this place would do nicely.
Comfortable condo close to Universal
This condo suited our needs very well. The unit was exactly as pictured and described. Once I purchased coffee and filters, it was kind of nice having a whole big pot of coffee in the room instead of a tiny pot or going to the lobby for coffee (hotel b'fast is off limits). I had trouble figuring out the dishwasher, but no big deal. I did not have to contact the owners for anything. The property is only about 7 minutes from Universal, and really close to a bunch of restaurants and stores. I really enjoyed my stay here and would stay here again.
In the middle of all the fun, one block away from International Drive, just 4 minutes away from Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, and Volcano Bay, Pirate’s Dinner Adventure and Titanic The Experience, supermarkets, bus stops, restaurants, pubs, bars, gas stations, nearby Premium Outlets, convention center...
