  • Laura's Great, Unit had problems

    "First, I will say that renting from Laura was smooth sailing. She is very professional and was extremely clear about everything. Second, the price on this resort was so awesome that despite having a very troubled unit, I still give it 4 stars. location is great. Amenities were fantastic for our family of four, including two boys who were thrilled to be able to play mini golf, swim in the pool, play in the arcade, rent a movie and play on the playground as early as 7:00 am and after daily excursions. Unfortunately our unit was riddled with problems, and it's clear the maintenance/housekeeping staff is poorly supervised. When we arrived the unit wasn't quite as clean as it could have been-toothpaste and fingerprints on bathroom mirrors, leftover popcorn on the countertop. The smoke alarms were beeping due to low/missing batteries, the silverware drawer was broken and sitting on the counter, the toilet didn't flush properly. Each time we called maintenance someone came right away and cheerfully fixed the problem, but we really shouldn't have been on a first name basis with them having made 5 or 6 calls. The other thing that was really strange was that when you ran the water for a shower or a bath the unit would smell like cat urine! The front desk seemed shocked to hear this, but both maintenance people I spoke with, including the manager, stated that they were very aware of the problem. Apparently it has been traced to a reaction between outgassing from the carpeting and the chlorine in the water. A minor irritation, but it did make me wonder if there is anything toxic in the carpet. In the end, we did tire of the hassle and leave a day early. I have a Disney timeshare and could have traded for this. Had I done that I would be super mad right now. However, because the unit is so reasonably priced I still feel like it was a good deal. Especially if you will be out and about most of the time. They did try to give us the timeshare pitch, but I told them I couldn't attend because my son has a sensory disorder and that ended that. Just be clear ad they will leave you alone."

  • "Adorable is an Understatement!"

    "My 3 girlfriends and I stayed here for a 'girls weekend'. We were so delighted with the adorable and luxurious cottage with the river view! What a delightful surprise! From the little touches in the décor to the luxury of the terry bathrobes & towels! Deena has thought of everything! The bathroom albeit cozy has the most luxury per square inch. The heated towel rack and the overhead shower heater made us feel spoiled. We enjoyed sunrises (with coffee) and sunsets (with wine) on the porch enjoying the view of the river and the ferry. In fact I was so impressed I came back 3 weeks later with my husband! He loved the cottage too! I highly recommend it! Enjoyed a fire on the beach at night and watched the lights of the ferry crossing the river. Spectacular! We will be back!"

  • Cute place

    "We stayed here with another family and we all enjoyed being away from everything--we have 2 boys and they have 3 so it's nice not to have to worry about bothering anyone close by like we would at a hotel. There was plenty of room for them to play outside and the beach was great. The kids loved walking there and playing near the water. We went to Busch Gardens one day and I went into Colonial Williamsburg for a massage. Comfortable beds and a nice open floor plan with everything we needed."

  • Another amazing stay at Lightwood!

    "This was our second year staying at Lightwood during December and we couldn't have been happier. The owners go the extra to decorate the property for the holidays, creating a cozy environment that can't be beat. We had a family of 10 (including 2 young children) and it was the perfect holiday house. The nature trails throughout the property make Lightwood truly unique. We've already booked a return trip for next December!"
