Location to Disney was perfect!

  • 3 of 5

We loved the fact that this house was very close to Disney. House was clean with essentials provided. Owner always quick to respond by email. I just couldn't give this home a 5 star, because of a few things.

When we rent a home, we value our privacy. The first day we arrived, someone from the management company (we assume) knocked on the door with towels, and bedding that I think needed to be dried elsewhere because we found out later that the dryer wasn't working.

The same person from the management company told us he needed to come back two days later to go on the roof to fix dryer vent. He ended up coming back the next day and shocked us by appearing on the roof in the morning, while we were sitting out by the pool, still in pajamas.

Second thing was the hot tub was dirty and seemed to be malfunctioning and loud. The same man came back the next day and put strong chemicals in and cleaned the edges and said the pool company would check it later, which they didn't. Hot tub didn't shut down at all and was extremely loud at night...maybe the motor needs fixing.

Third thing was, on our one day that we were relaxing at the house, lawn maintenance men (3 of them I think) came by trimming, cutting, and putting chemicals on grass. The same day, a pool guy came to clean the pool.

We have rented houses in Kissimmee many times in the past and have not seen a single soul. Peace and quiet, and privacy like I said, are very important to us, especially when paying a lot of money for a week's rental.

Fourth thing was that the dryer still wasn't working properly. We didn't do a lot of laundry, but when we did, the dryer would shut off after 5 mins or so.

Overall, the house was great, beds were fine, kitchen well stocked. If owner has the few things addressed, I would recommend this home.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive feedback about the villa. Delighted to know it was clean and tidy. We always welcome feedback from our guests. We have done the following to address the issues raised: 1. The dryer has now been replaced with a new one. Unfortunately, the timing of appliances malfunctioning is difficult to predict. Sorry if this caused any inconvenience. 2.The hot tub has now been placed on a monthly maintenance scheme. We have not had any issues with it before but will keep an eye on it. The settings had been changed by the previous guest making the jets run continuously. We are now asking the management company to check the settings prior to guests arriving. 3. Unfortunately. it is impractical to ask the maintenance/ pool guys to check with each guest when they aren't in. Sometimes the timing works well. Other times not. 4. Have spoken to the management company about letting guests know when they are coming round. Again, quite tricky to manage when guests are in and out and we don't know their schedule but appreciate it can be a disturbance. 5. We absolutely value peace and quiet, which is why we purchased the villa in this location. The villa is priced competitively for the location as potential guests will see if comparing to the other villas in the community on HomeAway. If anyone does have any questions regarding these issues prior to booking, please ask away.

Outstanding holiday home-away-from-home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults and two children spend a wonderful week at Formosa Villa. To repeat other comments, it is a great location, close to the Disney parks and within easy reach of restaurants, grocery stores etc. Check-in was a breeze with a pre-arranged door code. Will was very prompt to respond to any queries in advance of our stay and provided lots of helpful information. The house itself is spacious and well-equipped. Inside, the games room was great, and outside we (all 3 generations) loved the pool . The adults enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub once the youngsters were in bed. From our perspective, the villa is a superior lodging in every way. We highly recommend it, and hope to return again.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

6 of us stopped here for 10 nights end of March/ April, the villa was very clean and spacious. The pool, hot tub and games room means it keeps everyone entertained. Will and Nicola are very helpful and reply back to enquires very quickly. We hope to be able to return to this villa some time soon, with it being so close to restaurants and the theme parks.
