Wonderful pool, extremely private

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this home! Extremely private and quiet location. The pool area is amazing! You literally feel like you have no neighbors even though they are right next door. The home was very clean and well stocked with provisions. The welcome basket was a nice touch as well. Owners were very easy to deal with and responded quite promptly to any questions we had. Overall great experience! We would highly recommend.

Not great accommodations for our needs.

  • 3 of 5

Although this was listed as a "sleeps 4", of the two beds, one was only a full size. With 4 women, that situation made one in our party have to use the couch. Pool was a nice feature but poorly lit for evening entertaining. Towels were well supplied, though. Master bedroom shower head was like using a camp shower and the bathroom door was irritatingly squeaky making going to the bathroom at night definitely not a secret. Kitchen was nice and well stocked with basic needs. Also, a nice basket of snacks was left on the counter to enjoy. For the nature of our visit, I would probably not rent this again. A family with only 2-3 smaller children may enjoy this home better. We brought a four year old, knowing he would use a spare cot. The owners were kind enough to provide the cot and even had some toys ready for him to use as soon as we got there. Since we traveled by plane, this was extremely helpful.

Owner's Response: We thank you for your feed back on the irritatingly squeaky bathroom door. No one ever mentioned it. You can be sure it squeaks no more. Happy you enjoyed the pool, snacks, cot & toys. We would like to address your comments on the bedroom accommodations. The listing is very clear on the size of the beds. We have had many guests double up on the double bed knowing that was what they booked. There is 3 lights on the porch & several landscape lights around the pool along with the pool light, that was left on. The kitchen is well stocked with more then your basic items. We were disappointed with the dirty dishes left in the sink & none of the trash taken out. Guests are asked to leave the house in the condition they receive it aside from the baths and linens, as they are covered by the cleaning fee. Hopefully the next home you book will be live to your standards.

Great Place very private

  • 5 of 5

We booked place from Wed., March 21 to March 28. Got there at 2 am on Thursday morning, my daughter was in a wedding so it was very close to the event. Ran around all day Thursday and Friday and Saturday finally able to relax on Sunday til Wednesday morning. Jan has plenty of books to read, started reading The Ice Trap, great book and Jan told me I could have it because I didn't finish reading it. THANKYOU . Place was great, plenty of room and really appreciated the coffee that Jan left us for Thursday morning. It was quite chilly but on Monday the 26th was able to go in the pool and jaccuzzi. Packed up Tuesday evening so we can get a head start out in the morning and go to Melbourne were I know the area better. The house had everything that we needed. The Altamonte Mall was fantastic. A great place to stay especially if you have children and just want to hang around. I didn't like driving on Altamonte Drive or anywhere because I kept getting lost. lol But it was a good choice to stay there. THANKYOU

Beautiful pool, clean home, great location

  • 5 of 5

This home provided exactly what we were looking for. A beautiful, large pool and separate hot tub in a nicely landscaped, private back yard for 2 quiet days with a day trip to Universal in between. Loved the laid back, eclectic style of the outdoor sitting area and BBQ. The owner was very responsive to messages prior to our arrival and everything was in such great order there was no need to reach out to them upon arrival. We would definitely recommend this home for anyone looking for more privacy than a standard resort can provide in this area.

Absolutely loved it !!!

  • 5 of 5

At first we were overwhelmed ... so many things all over (pictures, posters, flags, etc), but after settling in, we sat outside to relax, and with the wonderful music and a good bottle of wine which was kindly provided by the owners, we started to relax and to enjoy looking at all their souvenirs.

We spent 2 weeks there, and actually hated to have to leave. There is a terrific outdoor shower which we used every single day. The pool is great, and even though the water was a ''refreshing'' 80 degrees, we went in almost every day.

Everything you need is provided, from pool towels to kitchen spices. As usual, we brought down a lot of clothes with us, so we had to squeeze a bit in the master closet, but that's our fault. We come from Quebec, and not knowing what weather to expect, we tend to bring clothes for cold and hot weather. This was our 12th consecutive year of coming to Florida, and we had the best weather yet this year !

So we thank you, Jan and Paul, for letting us live in your wonderful house the those 2 weeks. We had a simply TERRIFIC vacation!

Highly disappointing

  • 1 of 5

The house had narrow areas that were further crowded by a large amount of bric-a-brac, making moving around difficult especially in the middle of the night. Also, the house smelled like the owners used scented candles and air fresheners to cover up the old smell that was also present. Since my wife and I are allergic to scented air freshener this caused us much distress throughout our visit. The final straw was finding a rat inside the house.

Owner's Response: We understand our house if not for everyone. If you had let us know about your allergies we certainly would not have used any air spray. The hall to the bedrooms is tight & dark. That's why I have the motion lights. The last time I had a rat in the house, it was a present from my cat. I'm sure you are aware rats are everywhere. Did you know you could have called us and cancelled at any time to get a refund for days not used? We try to make our guests stay as comfortable as we can and most guests are very happy as you can see from the reviews. It appears the air freshener & dark hall were very upsetting to you. And of course the rat. Was there anything you did like? Thankfully over 90% of our guests have had a great stay. Sorry you didn't.
