4 Br Villa With Souwthwest Facing Pool Not overlooked- Close to Disneyworld
- english, french, dutch
We are a family of four with two young children. After spending our first vacation in the Disney Area, we felt in love with Florida. in itself . We've come back several times and finally we have decided to purchase our own dream vacation villa ! We are happy to share it with our guests and exchange minds and tips about their stay :-)
Virginie purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Virginie chose Clear Creek
This villa has the most important factor for us: sunny private pool with an overview on a well-maintained backyard and a conservation view. This makes our pool deck so relaxing after busy days exploring the area ! We also choose this community for its charming tranquility and the proximity to all Cagan's crossings shops and Wal-Mart. A 'plus' is also the location: just 1 1/2 mile north of the junction of US27 and US192. This location makes it a perfect central point out: near all attractions, but also really quiet.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
We stayed 3 weeks in this lovely home. Very accommodating for our needs. First couple of weeks just adults. Enjoyed the pool. Our last week we had our grandchildren. They loved the bedroom themes. The boys loved the Sponge Bob room. We had 2 year old twins so the pac n play and high chair really helped only had to bring on of each. It was being so close to Disney we did three parks.
All the comforts of home.
Very nice home in a quite neighborhood. Lay-out of the house allows good separation for families and privacy. Enjoyed morning breakfast in the lanai watching two Hornbill cranes and their two babies, visit every morning. Also saw many species of animals and birds as the property abuts a wooded area. The pool was very nice and warm. We did pay for the optional pool heat for some of the cool nights and it was well worth it for us. My grandchildren especially had a great time in the pool and using the game room in the garage. Their favorite quote at the Disney parks was, " Can we go back to the house and swim in the pool" Very short ride to Disney and very convenient to restaurants, post office, grocery and major shopping stores. Would love to stay at this home again.
Great place, highly recommend staying here!
This is a great place to stay during your vacation. The house was very clean and decorated nicely. The kitchen has pretty much everything you need for meals. Our two small kids enjoyed the themed rooms and loved the pool and game room. The pool was great. It did have small blue dots floating in it from the cover so a new cover may be needed but that’s not a big deal. It’s a great location with multiple restaurants, stores and gas stations within minutes. Disney is 15-25 minutes away (based on traffic) and Clearwater beach is about 1.5 hours with traffic. We would definitely stay here again!
Our family or 5 and a couple of friends of ours stayed here for week. It was just what we were looking for. The pool is way bigger than in the pics. We had a blast. House is centrally located with plenty of shopping near by. We would stay again. Thank you!
Thank you so much Jennifer ! It was a pleasure to have you and your party as guests ! Come back anytime !
Great location and lovely pool
We had a great time at the Villa. Virginie(the owner) is fantastic and is very accommodating. The pool is great and my daughter loved spending time playing. The Villa itself is spacious, clean and well equipped fir everything you need. The location is great, about 20mis to Disney but the neighborhood is quiet and relaxed. It’s also close to many restaurants on the 192. I would definitely look to return here if we return to Orlando.
Nice house, property management issues
We were in Orlando for a family vacation with our children and grandchildren and chose this property based on prior guest reviews. We arrived 1 hour after the 4pm check in time to find the house had not been cleaned. Reaching the property manager that Sunday afternoon was difficult at best. The cleaning lady arrived shortly after our arrival and spent 3+ hours cleaning. Our reservation was made in January so this was not last minute although the cleaning lady said she was called at 3:45 to do an “emergency cleaning”. When my husband spoke with the property owner he asked for a partial refund due to the inconvenience.
The owner had agreed she’d give us a partial refund for the issues upon our arrival on the day we arrived. However, the day of checkout she said she’d give us a partial refund only IF we left a positive review.
Initially I did not plan to leave a review at all but after much thought decided an honest review would be best.
The listing states all linens including pool towels are included. I found a total of 10 towels and no washcloths. Since the house sleeps 10 I expected 20 towels. In addition I expected to find a 2nd set of sheets for each bed. There were no extra sheets for the queen and king beds. Be prepared to purchase or bring paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, laundry soap, hand soap and trash bags. I also had to buy washcloths. These are all items I’ve found provided in timeshare properties. There were 2 small rolls of dollar store toilet paper in each bathroom and trash bags in each trash can. However, for our party of 8 the 4 rolls didn’t last long and the trash bags needing changing daily. Also provided were some very tiny bars of hand soap, about the size of a matchbook; 1 at each bathroom sink, none for the bathtub.
The house is as shown in the photos in a quiet location with a nice private pool. Based on the property management issues I would not stay here again.
Thank you for your review. We always appreciate feedback from our guests. Thank you also for pointing out that the house is as shown on the pictures and in a quiet neighborhood.
Regarding the cleaning issue. Unfortunately sometimes problems arise and due to a non scheduled late check out of previous guests the cleaning has been delayed. The cleaning lady was also delayed and she gently came back later and as soon as she was able to clean the house and by the quickest possible way. Indeed she was already cleaning when you requested me to contact you immediately.
While I was speaking with your husband I could have explained the reasons of this situation if only I had been able to speak to him. Your husband was so angry and constantly shouting on the phone telling me I would receive a bad review if I didn't accept to refund a substantial amount. I said I would contact you after the end of your stay because I wanted to make sure that everything else was to your satisfactory during your stay.
Until then I didn’t hear back from you until midnight on your check-out day when you informed me you wanted the money back and that a formal complaint had been left with VRBO. At that time I was disappointed as I was considering refunding you the cleaning fee which was obviously not to your satisfaction although the house had been cleaned in a timely manner.
We have been working for years with our property management company to our entire satisfaction and we have been able to rely on them any time and in any situation. The proof is when I called your husband on the check-in day he informed me he had been speaking with them a few minutes before. Even on a Sunday afternoon.
Thank you for counting the towels. A new lot of it has been added and also a lot of washcloths. An extra sheets set for each bed (and even two extra sets for kids beds), are in each room closet but maybe you didn’t find them. Regarding all other items not provided: the cleaning team provides a basic starter set and as stated in the listing, an additional welcome pack can be provided against a fee.
The villa is situated on a quiet sub division of the Woodridge estate and backs onto conservation land so that the pool area is not overlooked.
Clear Creek is a delightful quiet community located 1 1/2 miles north of US Highway 192 and just off Highway 27. Walt Disney World is only at a 20 minutes drive and Universal Studio Orlando & Islands of Adventure are located at 30 minutes. There are also a lot of Entertainment, restaurants and shops at a short drive (Legoland, Wonderworks, Old Town Kissimmee, Congo River Golf, ...)
The Cagan Crossings shopping center, located at the entrance of the community, includes supermarket, bank, post office, pharmacy, petrol station and a large Wallmart. There are also lots of restaurants located along US 192 and US 27.
