The house is Amazing!!!!
The property was Awesome!!! Only challenge was operating the thermostat.
Then you only can text back and forth to get it fixed. I would rather talk to a person.
Got it fixed by the next day
House was great with a lot of room. Only thing negative I have to say is the sleeps 24 people but only had a few bath towels, 2 wash clothes and 0 dish clothes. So BRING your own as well as pool towels.
Hi Jonathan, thanks for taking the time to post a review of your stay at the Maidstone Retreat (1557534) during the Christmas holiday. 48+ towels were provided including 1 bath towel and 1 hand towel per guest (house sleeps a maximum of 24). There were also additional towels provided in the closet adjacent to bathroom 4. As you only had 16 in your group, I don’t understand why this was not enough? Pool / Beach towels are also provided – 1 per lounger. Thanks again for choosing the Maidstone Retreat (1557534) with HomeAway / Vrbo.
The home was exactly as described in the description and pictures. The location is perfect for anyone planning on visiting theme parks. The only issue I had was with the pool heat. The pool guy came out to clean the pool and did something causing it to no longer heat. The management company responded right away to the issue but it took a day for the pool guy to come back out.
Hi Gerecia, thanks for taking the time to post a review of your stay at the Maidstone Retreat (1557534) over Thanksgiving 2019. I am delighted to read that you enjoyed the home and found its location convenient to the theme parks. You requested the pool maintenance tech to lower the pool temperature. Whilst the pool guy should not have changed the temperature (your request should have been sent to the property manager), it was changed at your instruction. The temperature of the pool was corrected the next day, and it was explained to you it would take time to reach temperature again. We have since enhanced the security of the pool heaters at all our homes, so they cannot be changed in future to prevent further occurrences. Our pools are set to 86 degrees F and the spa (hot tub) is set to 103 degrees F. Pool & spa heat is included free of charge with all our homes. Thanks again for choosing the Maidstone Retreat with HomeAway / Vrbo. I hope to welcome you again in the future.
Overall this was an nice home for our family vacation. The only issue i had was we asked about renting a bbq grill to cook on but was told that they only had a gas griddle like option to choose from so we declined. When we arrived there was a gas grill on the patio (along with the griddle) and they were both locked. I contacted the rep and asked about the gas grill and was told that it was just for the owners use and could not be rented. I was disappointed to say the least because why for 1. you see the grill in the pictures online when viewing the home, 2. tell renters you do not rent the grill but when you arrive you see one, and 3. couldn't just explain all of that on the front end before we arrived and saw a grill. Our hopes got high when we saw the grill to no avail so why not put the grill away when you are renting it out and just pull it out when the owners arrive. My family loves to grill out and the year before we rented from same resort and was able to grill. It also did not help that our neighbors on both sides of us for the week were able to grill. This would be the only reason why I would rent another property at the same resort but besides that the home was great.

In retrospect I would do things differently. It was nice for my first experience with a vacation rental.
