Wonderful house with plenty of room.
We enjoyed our stay. The owner is quick to respond and helpful. The bedrooms are large. The view is beautiful. One warning: bring your own toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, and dishwashing liquid. No extras are provided. Overall we enjoyed our stay.
Very Comfortable Home
Roomy, comfortable house located close to Disney, shopping, and restaurants.
The wildlife area is great for viewing FL birds, mammals, turtles and alligators.
Great friendly clubhouse staff is willing to help with information and advice to help make your vacation enjoyable.
Good stay. Convenient to all parks
Stay was good. Nice area and easy drive to all parks. Would liked to have seen some necessities available at the property. Extra toilet paper, coffee, sugar, creamer, laundry detergent, dish detergent etc.. was not included. Local Walmart close by but an inconvenience to stop. All in all a good experience.
Decent place, but underwhelmed
I guess I got a bad first impression walking through the front door initially. There was some kind of hokey contraption blocking one of the light switches from being used. Overall the house was fairly clean, but we were not impressed with the amenities. I am new to this type of service, so maybe this is typical, but we thought it would be equipped like a normal house or hotel would be. For a place that sleeps 8, there were 3 total rolls of toilet paper in the house. There were also no paper towels, laundry detergent, extra trash bags etc... We did not have transportation so this was a pain.
Nice villa, good location but needs some refurbishment
The villa overall is very nice, with most of the essentials required for your stay. The location is good for Disney which is about a 10-15 mins drive, and not too far to the I-4 (to get to Universal, Sea World etc.). The gated community feels safe and is generally quiet.
There are 4 good sized bedrooms, 2 of which are en-suite, and a very roomy open plan kitchen, lounge and dining area downstairs. The pool whilst not massive is fine, and in September was a lovely temperature without the need for any heating, and it was cleaned on a regular basis.
There is good WiFi and TV's in all the bedrooms and the lounge.
The overall impression however was spoiled a little as it is in need of some modernisation / refurbishment - things like the blinds which don't all work properly, the aircon inlet cover which doesn't close properly, a few stains on the carpets, and chips out of the hard fooring and furniture. The "safe" is also really a fireproof lockbox, which had a plastic lock - which I doubt would resist much forcing.
Finally the front door lock was electronic (4 digit numeric code) - which whilst handy, didn't feel totally secure as anyone could just keep trying codes sequentially, especially as the front door is quite obscured from view. I think some sort of additional deadlock on the inside would be good.
Fully enjoyed our experience
Excellent place, will stay there again.
