Nice house for a large family

  • 4 of 5

The house was very roomy for a family of 8 with small children. The house and the furniture was very clean. All of the beds and couches were comfortable. We couldn't use the pool because the weather was on the chilly side. We had a great view of the lake.

I had read another review prior to our stay about bringing toilet paper and supplies and I am glad that I did. I also recommenced bringing dish soap or buying plastic utensils and disposable plates if you eat there. The pool table kept the adults entertained when the kids went to sleep. We had a great time during our stay.

The only thing I didn't like were the little notes left around the house and in the welcome email. If you loose the key, clog the toilet, ruin the curtains or blinds, scratch the pool table or have additional guests you will be charged a fee. Those are just some of the warnings I remember. There were little notes next to the toilets and around the house reminding you of these fees. The welcome binder they leave for you reads like a rule book. The little notes really bothered my husband. If that kind of stuff doesn't bother you, this is really nice house to stay in.

Owner's Response: “Thanks Michelle for your review. We always appreciate hearing from our guest, it helps us to make your future stays with us to be better and also lets us explain to others why we have our policies and rules. We are happy you enjoyed the home too! Let me address some of your issues. First, the basic starter supplies. Our homes are self catered - which we say that in our ads. Most homes are self catered, which means you supply what you want and need while you stay in our homes. We are not like a hotel - we don’t have maid service everyday and we don’t have endless supplies of those things - that is why you are paying less for a huge home than Disney charges for a tiny room! We supply enough things to get you by until you go to the stores and purchase the things you personally like. It is surprising how people like certain brand of toilet tissue, washing products, etc.. But a big reason is allergy issues. What you may think is not an issue - sometimes become a problem for others who have specific allergies - after doing this for the past 20 years we have learned a lot from past guest. We have signs placed in the areas where people can damage things very easily because of unfamiliarity with how to use things and how our plumbing works. Remember, we have guest from all over the world - and many don’t have the same plumbing, electric and mechanical things as they are used to! People go on vacation and tend to forget their “common sense” about opening blinds, flushing things that shouldn’t be flushed in commodes, etc.. We don’t want you to pay for unpleasant surprises! Insurance doesn’t always include ignorance. Believe us - our goal is to make your stay a good one. Our books are designed to help our guest stay comfortable and not have their trips ruined waiting for repairs to be made or to receive huge unsuspected bills. Because we let our guest know in advance - it is RARE we have any issues now - when we first started these type problems occurred more often than you would ever suspect. Plus as we say - if you need anything or have any questions we are only a phone call away! Thanks again for choosing our home - and we hope you had a great time - because we do care! Jhony and the team!

solid but I expect more for 250+/night

  • 4 of 5

This could have very easily been a 5 star stay but is 3 and a half because of a few things. The lockbox worked well for our initial late arrival and we were pleased with the cleanliness and decor of the house. An initial negative was that 2 of the 3 bathrooms had NO toilet paper so I had unhappy females who ran in there upon our arrival. So we rationed the one roll between bathrooms and then made a run to the store.

The house is with 15min of the disney parks and within 5 min of a publix and supertarget. It sits on a culdesac backing to the lake...so it is in a quiet place.

The hot tub and pool were nice. The daily heating fee was $30 which is not posted in the ad on homeaway.

It was nice that the kitchen had things like a corkscrew and an electric kettle. I'm a frozen pizza guy for its simplicity when I'm on vacation so a cheap pizza pan and cutter would have been welcomed.

Both twin bedframes in the one room were either too long or not assembled correctly. So, the metal bars protruded several inches from the end of the bed. Two members of our party needed bandaids on their shins from those. The doorknob to that room was extremely loose but to their credit they fixed that the next day so we could close the door.

All in all we enjoyed our 5 nights but felt if could have much better. I also do rentals and so I know a 15 minute walk through with a checklist works wonders.

While not specific to this property and so not reflected in the rating, we detest how homeaway hides true costs with their misleading "average costs"...the "average" does not include added fees like processing, booking, cleaning, pool, nor the homeaway fee. It makes it more difficult to compare places/prices. Again, nothing against this owner/propery....just an observation to share.

Pretty, but disappointing

  • 2 of 5

Owner was responsive and courteous throughout the reservation process. House has a great layout, large pool area with lots of furniture and is tastefully decorated, but overall we were disappointed. Having stayed in other VRBO rentals, this one is considerably understocked with the basics and not well maintained. There wasn't enough toilet paper between all of the bathrooms for even 1 day, lacked kitchen staples common in other rentals (salt/pepper, dish cloths, dish soap, etc.), dirty/rusty baking sheets, lots of missing/burned out light bulbs throughout, some TVs didn't work, no pool toys, etc. The house definitely needs a deep clean and refresh. The carpet is VERY dirty, mattresses are old, and bedding needs to be replaced (stained/torn in some rooms). With a bit of attention and updating, this could be a great rental.
