Very pleased with our experience at this house. The house was beautiful and we felt very comfortable sharing the same faith in God, cute wall hangings.
Fl Vacation / unit 306092 / HA-RPTG37 4/10/19 through 4/16/19
We arrived on 4/10 at about 4:45 pm. The house was locked. About an hour after our arrival and 2 calls to your company, Bob Maleski stopped by and let us in the home via a lockbox key. The visit was okay, but some TLC is needed. I am only reporting what I hope will make future renter's visits more pleasant. I would say that the owner needs to spend about $5,000 to freshen up the home. The home's exterior needs a paint job. More care needs to be given to the yard (weeding) and shrubs trimmed. The pool is dirty and needs to be thoroughly cleaned. In addition, the pool never heated so my wife and sister-in-law could not use it for the time we were there. However, the hot tub was very enjoyable. The garage door needs to be repaired so the renter can park inside if he/she chooses. The front entrance also needs a storm door installed for better security. Once inside, we noticed that the carpet was in bad need of a cleaning throughout the entire home. The kitchen was well equipped, but new or better pots and pans are needed. The washer and dryer is old - very inefficient and needs to be replaced. The furniture in the living room has seen its better days and needs to be replaced. A larger TV in the living room would be helpful for the old folks. The other TV's were okay. Kitchen nook and larger dining area were okay. All of the pillows were basically flat. The blind in the front bathroom - one of the slats was broken and laying on the window seal when we arrived - I taped it so as to provide more privacy. The front bathroom needs to have a vent fan installed as well as mirrors in each bed room. The water had a smell to it and I would guess that a water softener would be helpful. The tissue paper was extremely cheap/thin. The towels and sheets were sufficient. Too many rules and notes posted throughout the property did not make us feel welcomed. Again, this memo is not to be a negative, but one that (in our opinion) identified issues that need to be addressed. Regarding the location, it was very convenient to the "Parks" and we felt safe in the neighborhood.
I do appreciate the offer from your company to find a hotel room for us if we were unable to enter the home. Fortunately, Bob Maleski stopped by and assisted us.
I had sent a text message and phone call to Levy with combination to the key lock- box, as I do all renters. He never answered phone call or acknowledged the text. Great Room furniture has been acceptable to our family and to renters but we are replacing it next month. Garage is available to renters but most people choose to use it. Levy could have put his car in the garage but apparently choose not to. I have owned the home as a vacation rental for 15 years and have never received a complaint such as this one. Several families have returned 5 or 6 years in a row. Mel Olberg
Home needs improvement
Sofa loveseat chair in bad shape and carpet also needs to be replaced.
Find one roach in the kitchen.
Master bathroom needs some upgrades also.
Pool area is good kids enjoyed the most.
Overall fair .
Furniture and carpet are on list to be replaced or cleaned. Bugs are a problem in FL, if roach is seen the pest-control people will be there to treat again the same day if possible.
Perfect vacation home!
The week our family and extended family stayed at Mel Olberg’s Kissimmee home was wonderful! The home is comfortable and well equipped with easy access to east or west coast attractions. Of course, the convenient 30 minute drive to Universal or Disney was nice! As were grocery stores within 10 minutes.
The home itself offered us all space to decompress and the open living area was good for gathering. Thanks to Mel and his family for keeping this wonderful home and sharing it with us!
I especially liked the Ephesians bible verse in the master suite.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. We attempt to keep the villa up to the standards that we enjoy at our home. God bless you. Mel & Diane
Beautiful property! Pool is great!
The home had everything we needed and the location was ideal. We will definitely recommend it to friends and family. I can't say enough about the gorgeous pool. House layout is very open too.
Glad you appreciated it. We do our best To keep it nice.
Clean, nice and large. Wonderful pool and hot tub. Close to so many things to do. The owner Mel, was an absolute pleasure to work with. No issues at all. All the amenities one would need.
Thank you. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Mel
