Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I had the pleasure of staying at The Kokomo house for five nights in March and enjoyed the house immensely. The pool was perfect for all six of us and our little one year old grandson as it was extremely clean and warm. The house and outdoor lanai was perfect and large enough to handle our family gatherings for evening meals as it became the central hang out for the entire group - most of them were staying at The Swan/Dolphin resort near Epcot. Just a 15 minute drive to and from their hotel made it ideal for them to come over each night. The bedrooms were great - all the beds were very comfortable and the amenities and location were ideal for our vacation in Orlando. The gated community gave us a very secure feeling and the ease of getting around the area was a big plus. The other neat thing about the house was the near by Formosa Gardens shopping area (only a mile away) - we took advantage of a great Giordano's restaurant for some delicious carry-out and the Winn Dixie had everything we needed to stock the house with food and refreshments. I highly recommend The Kokomo for anyone needing a great house in Orlando. Thanks, JoAnne, for being so easy to work with and also for getting the crib into the house for our little guy - he had a great time as we all did.

Awesome Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family had the pleasure of staying at the Kokomo for a spring break vacation. The house is beautifully decorated and well maintained. The pool was clean and warm. We had 4 teenagers and 2 children who did not have time to get "bored", thanks in part to the wonderfully furnished game room and computer connection. The location could not be better. Formosa Gardens is a beautifully maintained community right outside of the DisneyWorld complex. The next time we visit Orlando, we will definitely try to stay again at the Kokomo! Thank you for sharing your wonderful vacation home.

Great vacation home in an even better location!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this home. It was perfect for family from across the country to meet up for Christmas. Plenty of space for us to spread out. Joanne and the management company were very prompt in their replies to any issues we encountered. The location is perfect for going to Disney and a mile from grocery shopping and restaurants. We'd strongly consider staying here again in the future.

Spacious home with comfortable room for 10 adults

  • 3 of 5

The good: The location was great and central to the attractions, and the neighborhood was well maintained and private. The exterior was inviting and outdoor area was very spacious and protected by full screens. The pool was excellent and we were happy that we paid the extra fee to heat it. The house is completely furnished and has excellent cable TV service with multiple flat screens. We loved the air hockey and pool table even as an adult group!

The questionable: Be prepared to provide all of your consumables, including garbage bags, toilet paper, soap, etc. There was one garbage bag in the home...for ten adults for a week. Mattresses are very firm, pillows are very flat...could use upgrades. The thermostat was under owner control and we could not adequtely control temperature... and opening windows and patio doors is frowned upon due to security system issues. There were at least a dozen Palmetto bugs that we had to remove, so pest control was an issue. We are a well traveled group and understand that this is a part of Florida life, but this was excessive. We did not inform the management company while we were there so that is on us (partly because we knew that we’d have to vacate to have the issue truly solved) but hopefully this will be addressed for future guests.

Overall a decent stay, might be better for a family or two with kids.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive remarks regarding the villa's location, spaciousness, excellent pool area, complete furnishings, excellent TV service with multiple flat screens, and for loving the game room's contents. Please realize that all of the rental homes in the Disney area are "self-catered" properties. Guests supply their own toiletries, food, etc., as needed. For your initial arrival date, my property management company supplied toilet paper and complimentary soaps for each bathroom, paper towels in the kitchen, and garbage bag liners for all the garbage cans throughout the home. The air conditioner can be controlled by the guests when all windows and doors leading outdoors are closed. Patio doors leading out to the pool, a bedroom window, and a game room window were left opened all day while the property was vacant. On the third day of your stay I emailed you and kindly told you that the air conditioner and the alarm system cannot work unless you close all windows and doors leading outside. Please note that Florida is a tropical state and unwanted insects can appear. The property's interior and exterior was professionally treated by an exterminator on Nov. 7, 2017. I wish you had contacted the property management company regarding this issue. They would have promptly addressed it without making you vacate the property. I appreciate your thoughtful comments and will make every effort to make future guests as comfortable as possible.

Perfect family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Kokomo Vacation Villa, the home is beautiful with everything you could possible need or want for a wonderful vacation, the rooms are very specious and are very well maintained, the pool area is perfect for a relaxing day for when you need a break from all the parks which are only minuets away from the Kokomo. There is also a washer & dryer if needed, which was great to not have to over pack with heavy luggage. I would highly recommend staying at the Kokomo, you would not be disappointed.

Clean, modern, accommodating, and great location

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home was the ideal location for my family to enjoy our ten day vacation. We ordered a crib for the little one that was ready for us when we arrived. We also ordered a bigger grill that was there when we arrived that helped feed our big clan on days we relaxed by the pool. Disney, universal, and other attractions (such as Gator Land) are very close to the house. The outlets are also very close and are plentiful! The house was very clean and also had a high chair. We also used the booster seats that are there - this was a huge help when we picked up other family that visited that were staying in Disney. The kitchen is very modern and had plenty of plates, flatware, cups, and wine glasses! The bedrooms were tastefully decorated, clean, and the beds were comfortable. There were so many bathrooms that I did not want to come home and go back to sharing. My favorite part of the house was sitting outside in the morning in the screened in pool area with my tea and looking out at the beautiful landscaping with the perfect glimps of the lake. At night we even saw fireworks from the parks!
