Guestbook comments from the owner

The location of the rental was close to downtown and 20 minutes from Orlando International Airport. The view from the rental overlooked a lake and pretty palm trees which was awesome in the mornings. We enjoyed the access to Hulu and Netflix in the evenings.The space was very comfortable and spacious and we enjoyed out stay at Gemma's rental.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

So much nicer to be here than in a motel during our weeks stay in Orlando while doing some doctoring. Loved the view overlooking the lake!

Owner's Response: Hello Rossio, Regarding the sleeping arrangements, the listing does clearly state its a 1 bedroom with a queen bed and a full size futon, also see listing photos . As for the trash, I received one message the day before trash day (the day my husband got back from fishing, so did have some fish in there), as soon as I received the message the trash cans got moved to the front of the home for pick up. I am very upset you stated in your review nothing was done and we didn't care. We communicated with you throughout the stay and you even stated you enjoyed your stay with us. We strive to make our guests comfortable and help whenever we can. If you was unhappy with anything, I wish you would of told me so I could of rectified the situation.

Affordable stay with a few quirks

  • 4 of 5

Overall, this is a good place to stay if you're looking to keep your hotel costs down while staying in Orlando. However, do keep in mind that this property has a few quirks.


Spacious, clean, nice lake view, air-conditioned, privacy, available parking, usable kitchen, cable TV and Netflix, close to the international airport and about 30 minutes from Disney/Universal.


Uncomfortable bed, small bathroom and really awkward bathroom sink - the sink is rectangular, small, and really close to the wall right below the vanity mirror. So, we had to contort ourselves to try and rinse our face off or brush our teeth without banging our head on the mirror above or getting water all over the floor. We weren't very successful. There really isn't a good use for the bathroom sink other than to wash your hands. The property is also right next to the executive airport - so, lots of planes taking off and landing - but, the noise didn't bother us too much.

Affordable Lakefront Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful lakefront property with the benefits of being right in town. Public transportation was very convenient if you didn't have a car, and quick drive to downtown Orlando and Winter Park. The unit itself was modest, but had everything we needed. Owners were easily reached, but definitely respected our privacy as well.
