Too much ants
The house was ok; however, ants were everywhere when we arrived. We have to leave early because our kids were complaining. I would not recommend this house to anyone unless they take care of the ants.
Unfortunately despite my home having pest control - Florida has a tropical climate and sandy soil, which makes it almost impossible to stop every infestation. My management and I were unaware of any ants! .... If any insects appear - no problem! My home is fully covered for any type of pest issues and my management´s responses are almost immediate! My management is very reliable and will be happy to solve any issue as soon as possible - naturally if they are told about it.
Better than a hotel but could use a little TLC
When we arrived the property managers were buying new sheets and pillows and towles, a nice touch, except that the queen bed's sheets were really cheap... Could really use an over haul to paint walls and ceilings instead of just patching. There was a still a tear in the sofa seat. Queen bed was hard but not unbearable. Could really use more small waste baskets, like in every bedroom and bathroom would be nice. Knives and can opener were a joke! But other than that we had everything we needed to make several dinners, breakfasts and lunches. Very close to everything. Could really use bigger fans for each bedroom upstairs!! It got very warm!! Definitely not a bad experience, but with a little help could be really nice! Doesn't seem like someone really cares, burned out lights over dining table, water stains on ceiling. Pool was very nice and private. A lot of stairs- elderly beware, but my 2 year old had a blast :) Cocoa beach is a great place to visit! Bring a roll or 2 of quarters for tolls! Great restaurant Soco at Thornton Park!
As these guests mentioned - my management constantly renew items etc. Unfortunetely, there are always guests that just don´t take care of other people´s merchandise...or just take things back home...My reliable management will attend to these issues. I must say - I don´t know why people have to take a dig like "no on cares" when they actually don´t know what goes on day to day. I am happy to hear that these guests noticed - that "The Meadow Woods Home" is really a nice place!
We stayed the first 3 week of March 2015. The first week was spent trying to get the house up to acceptable standards. We had to leave the home during the first week at various times for cleaning and repairs. We met with cleaning and repair people to arrange cleaning and repairs that should have been completed on an ongoing basis, and not taking away from our vacation time. The rugs were filthy and had to be cleaned. Living room couch was torn and broken. Pool chairs were broken. The bedroom television and some small appliances were broken. Replacements were brought in. Holes in bedroom walls and doors were fixed and painted.
Screens were replaced on front door, pool doors and 7 panels were also replaced on pool covering. Racoon wandering in pool area through torn screens. Pool filter had to be replaced. Pool heater down for 3 days. Could not use the pool for days due to the pressure washing of the pool frame and deck getting rid of buildup of dirt and debris leaving chemicals in the water. House requires deep cleaning, painting and updating of living room furniture and very old uncomfortable beds. Absentee owner. Too many issues to list. We travel frequently and are not complainers, however the issues with this home cannot be ignored. Upon returning home, I have frequently tried to communicate with the owner but due to her recent lack of response I felt it was necessary to pass on these comments.
I would like to thank this guest for his comments and apologize for any inconvenience - any of these issues may have caused. Sudden things can happen that nobody can see or know in advance.... I´d like to reiterate that the issues highlighted in this guest´s review were responded on the day they were reported and I´ve had no further negative comments from any other guest who has stayed in my villa since this guest´s departure...on the contrary - they loved it and felt very comfortable!
We stayed in this house for 3 nights for a birthday celebration and I must say the house is spacious and very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and you have all you need.
Supermarket and restaurants are close by and getting to the house is pretty easy from the main highways. I would recommend this house to anyone.
Susan was very professional and quick to respond to any concerns we had.
I am very happy to hear that these wonderful guests were able to enjoy their Birthday Party - celebrated in "The Meadow Woods Home" and found everything they needed. My management and I always do our best to assist my guests with all their requests.
Wonderful vacation (07/02/2013 - 07/09/2013)
We would highly recommend this house. With (2) families consists of (4) adults and (5) children, the house had plenty of room for all of us. Everything was as described in the listing. My wife and her sister-in-law loved the layout of the house. Shops are near by and theme parks are within 20-25 minutes driving. The pool is perfect for us to kick back and recuperate after a long day at the theme park.
The owner of the house is very pleasant to deal with. Thank you for a great house!
These guests noticed the convenience of staying in a vacation home. They loved the spaciousness and central location of the house - and they enjoyed their "private" pool to relax - when ever they wanted to. It was a joy having them in "The Meadow Woods Home"!
Conveniently located and spacious
My husband and I stayed at the Meadow Woods house for 7 days with our four children ages 2-7. The house is very large with plenty of space for the kids to play. The pool was the perfect size for us with one end 3’ deep and the other 5’ deep. It was narrow enough that the kids got really comfortable swimming.
It is about 25 min to Disney and feels like a really quick trip. Be prepared for the tolls, many of them only take change. There are plenty of stores and restaurants in the area to find everything you need. There are no provisions in the house so you will need to go out on day one for everything from dish soap to garbage bags.
The styling of the house is not my taste. I think it would look cleaner without all the plastic plants. The carpet bothered me but I guess it is practical for a rental house. The pool looked dirty but we realized it was just stained. I’m told that is not uncommon. The downstairs toilet was leaking the day we arrived. We called the management company and they came within a few hours. They were extremely nice and listened to all our questions.
Overall, I would recommend this as a nice house to stay in just be prepared that it is a little dated.
I was happy to hear these guests had enough of space to feel comfortable - for their children and themselves. I´m sorry about the provisions! That´s not how it should be, but apparently some people can just use everything! All of the above items mentioned should be in the house. I will inform my management about it and have them have a good look at the provisions in the future. I have artificial plants in the house to keep that "Florida look" - inside the house, too. The majority of my guests like it very much. I can´t put living plants in the house, because they wouldn´t make it very long - and I find a house without plants is a "dead house". The pool is absolutely not filthy - there are only shades on the foundation - what is normal. I would never tolerate a dirty pool! I have a company that keeps it clean an hygienic.
As the guests have mentioned - if you have any kind of a problem - my management is very reliable and helpful. I don´t quite understand why these guests say the house is a little dated and the styling wasn´t their taste. I have several pictures to observe on my advertisement and the house is kept in "Florida-Style" - what many of my guests love! Well, I guess everybody has his own taste. Nevertheless - these guests would still recommend "The Meadow Woods Home" and that´s great! :-)
You will love the central location of the villa. You can reach many attractions and world-famous amusement parks in no time without any troubles. Some of these are: Disneyworld – Magic Kingdom, MGM Studios, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Pleasure Island, Discovery Island, Planet Hollywood, Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach – Sea World, Discovery Cove (swimming with dolphins), Universal Studios, Island of Adventure, Gatorland, Church Street Station, Arabian Nights and Medieval Times (Dinner Shows), Oldtown, Airboat rides, huge flea markets, outlets, golf courts and many more.

They are all reachable within a few minutes (you can walk it, if necessary). The world-famous attraction Cape Canaveral is reachable in about 35 minutes. It’s also only 40 minutes to the popular Daytona Beach, which is drivable by car!
Other Activities: jet-skiing, go-cart riding, mini-golf aso.
Golf: To all Golf players! The vacation home has a top location to several Golf Courses. You will surely find your 'favorite' place, too. My management now uses 'Kissimmee Guest Services' for all their discounts on tickets and other things such as golf. Just mention you are staying in a '----' (I´ll give you the name) rental property and they will give you a discount. They have various offers. I`d give you a tel.no. , which you could call - in advance - to find out their rates.
