"The property is very nice. Not too big, not too small. It was very clean and tastefully appointed. That being said, the appliances and electronics were a bit dated, with VCRs and DVDs, but they all worked. The living room TV was smallish. The pool was clean, but I don't think the temperature ever got to 86 degrees that it was said to be set, although it was very cool weather, upper 30's at night and low 60's during the day. So that may have been part of the issue and I didn't mention it, as it was so unusually cool no one really wanted to swim. If you are a bird watcher not from the area, it was a treat. We saw Sandhill cranes, Wood storks, Great and Snowy egrets, Little Blue herons, Cormorants, Snake birds, White ibis, Muscovy ducks, Turkey and Black vultures, Broad winged Hawks, Palm warblers, Cardinals, Great tailed grackles, Mourning and Ground doves. Most right on the property. It is right on a pond with a great view. The neighborhood is pretty with nice mature landscaping. It looks tropical, just the way you want it too! It also felt very safe. The location seemed a bit remote. That's what made it quiet and beautiful. It also kept us driving. I would say on average it was 5 to 8 miles to go to stores or restaurants, and for being on the edge of the metro there was a good amount of traffic, although it was reasonable, about 30 mins. to Disney, 35-40 mins. to Universal and the airport. I dealt with Michelle Langham and I could not have asked for better customer service. She was prompt, friendly and seemed very interested in our pleasant stay. I reported the dryer hose off of the dryer she responded quickly. There were a couple of irritants that were not a big deal, but you only realize if you stay. So I will list them, as I'm sure they will be repaired, unless no one knows of them. I mentioned the dryer hose, the underwater pool light was out, just an ambiance thing, there were a couple of bulbs out in the foyer hanging light, made it dark in the hallway, there was only a motion sensor light by the front door and the lights on the garage were out. So that made it dark until you were very close to the front door. There is a couple of large palm fronds hanging in the way of the front door. Beyond all of the minutia listed, the property was great and we had a terrific time. We would love to return."
