Nice home and close to clubhouse .
Adequate sized home. More kitchen bar stools would have been nice. Only kitchen bar stool was broken upon arrival. No chalk for the pool table. Overall we all enjoyed the home and our stay at Champion’s gate.
Hi Bob, we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in one of our homes at the Champions Gate Resort. In regards to the issues with the kitchen bar stools, we have since notified our property manager to send the maintenance team to have them resolved. We have also sent a note to our property manager to leave a new chalk for the pool cues. Again, thank you so much for booking with us and taking your time to write a feedback. Please let us know if you are planning a future stay in the Disney area, we would love to offer you a return guest discount. Thank you for choosing Sweet Home Vacation and it was a pleasure to hosting your stay again!
Large house in rough shape
We were in Florida for a family vacation to Disney. I am a VRBO owner as well and have rented several properties through the site and have no issues. We were very disappointed when we got to the house. The house was not very clean, my elderly parents bathroom was very dirty and my mom has to clean it when we got there. The carpet throughout the house was dirty, torn, smells and needs replacement immediately. The walls throughout the house had holes, scuff marks and considerable wear. We were a group of 13, (7 adults and 6 children) we had to eat in shifts because all of the bar stools were broken ( none at the property) and the kitchen table didn’t have enough seats for all of us. The kitchen was not equipped for the size of the group that the description says the house accommodates. There was enough silver wear and plates, but you could not prepare a meal because there were minimal pots, pans, bowls, etc. As a fellow VRBO owner I understand that there are rules and you take a risk letting others stay at your property but it appeared there was always some type of extra charge for amenities I feel should have been included ( heat for the hot tub, or grill) or there were threats of extra charges everywhere you turned.
I hope by submitting this review some steps will be taken for the future enjoyment of other renters.
Hi Kelly, We appreciate your honest review so that we can better improve the experience for our future guests. We are sorry to hear about the cleanliness level of some of the rooms, we do have cleaners in the home after every guest leaves. We have passed on this issue along to the property management team to have the deep cleaning scheduled for this unit. In regards to the kitchen equipment, we have also notified the property manager to upgrade the cookware to make our guests stay more comfortable. To offer our guests great rates we do have our pool heating and grill as optional add-ons as not all guests require these extra services. The extra cost for these add-ons are made clear to all of our guests right from the listing itself and we always remind our guests after they book that these features are extra. Again we apologize that the home did not live up to your expectations. We hope to host your future stay with a special discount for the inconveniences. Thank you for booking with Sweet Home Vacation.
Great for us
We had. Great time and had lots of space.
Hi Nick, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with one of our homes. We would like to offer you, your family and friends a return guest discount for your next stay. Please let us know if you are interested in booking another vacation. Thank you for choosing Sweet Home Vacation!
Large accommodations, great location to the club and clean.
Overall we had a pleasant stay. We love VRBO and have used them a lot for our family vacations over the years. This unit was large enough to accommodate a large group of people, with minor annoyances, like no oven mits in the kitchen. Or kitchen dish towel, etc. BUT, we did have a few less than ideal experiences:
1. After paying extra over 2 weeks in advance for a heated pool/spa, so that it would be warm when we arrived, we found that the spa temp was in the low 80s just like the pool. Being the 1st, a holiday, I knew that the likelihood of someone coming to fix it that day was low. Nonetheless I did call the company and someone did try to “walk me through” turning the spa on when that failed they said someone would call me back by the next day and come fix the problem. No one called beach. Ever.
2. That evening we noticed that the downstairs a/c wasn’t working so I called them back the following evening for that and after we noticed when someone had come by while we were out that day (as there was evidence of them being there (water hose left out by the pool). The spa temp slowly crept up and by the end of the day and by the 3rd day the pool temp was the same as the spa that made it unbearable to swim in ...as my son said ”a pool should be refreshing”(turns out over 101 f). When I mentioned to the maintenance company that the pool did in fact get heated after someone came by, but seemed warmer than what they’d mentioned it maxing out at (89f) the lady I spoke to (Connie) was super rude on the phone and said “I don’t see what the problem is” When someone came by on the 3rd day, to look at the air conditions they said it needed Freon and that the owner would have to order this. I mentioned the pool and that is when he checked the temp and said it was over 101. Ridiculous. AND no one ever fixed the air conditioning so the evenings , although for Florida were cooler, they were still somewhat uncomfortable to sleep in (and no room fan) SOOO at the end NO ONE communicated with us on when and if things were going to be fixed, but the pool must have been because on THE LAST night the pool was finally the temps I’d paid 5 days for. But our air conditioning was never fixed.
Hi Ana, It is unfortunate to hear that you had a less than perfect experience, thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the inconvenience you had with contacting the on-site property manager, we have passed on the notes in regards to improving customer service to our guests at all times. In regards to the pool heating, normally the pool heat does not turn on until the beginning of your stay. Depending on the outside temperature it may take a few hours to fully reach the desired temperature. To help rectify the issues you experienced with them during your stay we would like to give you a special deal on a return stay. Once again we apologize for the inconvenience and we hope to see you again in the future.
Champions Gate Resort was the "perfect" gateway for a family .
The property was immaculate...with all the amenities for comfort, relaxation, and loads of fun! The scheduled activities were an added bonus if you chose not to leave the resort. The water park and lazy river were " the best," according to the kids. The swimming pool was a big hit for the kids and adults. We will definitely return for another vacation experience. The property was clean, beautifully decorated, and spacious enough to accommodate everyone.
Perfect first time stay in Florida
Our stay was amazing, the home was the perfect size for our group. The location was perfect and close to all the amenities and the community felt very luxurious with the groomed landscaping and the scenery was beautiful. The pool area was really clean and the clubhouse is out of this world. We would definitely love to go back and visit your home again in the future.
