Great house and location
I didn't know I had it to pay extra for pool heater if I would it know I would it pay for it. we lost 1 day of using the pool
Family and I loved our stay here. Property manager/owner was very attentive and handled questions and concerns extremely fast. Would stay here again.
Not a south facing pool!
My biggest reason for the low review is the misrepresentation of it having a south facing pool. When looking for a rental this was an item that held a lot of weight in our choosing a property. We would filter by south facing pools only. That’s why it holds so much weight and drags down my review. In the property it’s stated that it’s a south facing pool. For anyone who travels south regularly they know that south facing pools receive the most sun light throughout the day. The pool was more of a north facing pool (slightly North West). North facing pools receive the least amount of sun throughout a day.
You tend to pay a slight premium (in my mind, or at least I’m willing to), for a south facing pool. So I was very disappointed that this wasn’t the case. I would not of booked this property for this price had I know it wasn’t south facing.
Some other small items: 1: the place could of been a little cleaner. One main example is that in the main bathroom they didn’t even close the door and sweep behind the door. The bathroom floor was very dirty. 2. There was zero toilet paper left in the house. I didn’t hold this against them in the rating because I know that’s always our responsibility. But in previous houses there has at least been a part roll or something to get you to the store.
I don’t want to sound completely negative. The owner was one of the most responsive owners I’ve dealt with while renting in Florida. Great communication. The house was alright overall. Pool area was large with plenty of seating.
Thank you for being our guest and it was a pleasure having you and your family.
First I must say sorry for the hiccups.
I was surprised when you stated that there were no toilet paper. We always leave a full roll of toilet paper in each bathroom and paper towel in the kitchen. We addressed the problems with the cleaning company.
It wasn’t our usual cleaner that attended to the house.
When we originally took over the listing 13 years ago, it was listed as a south facing pool and didn’t get any complaints about the pool or about the extended pool deck not getting enough sun. No neighbors only to one side of the house, none behind and no overhanging trees to block the sun may have account for that, but I will look into it. HomeAway have been updating their site and wasn’t aware that was added to their filter selection Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
I actually lowered my prices during the recession in 2010 and raised it only within $5-$10 difference in 9 years so most large families can enjoy the spacious deck & pool without feeling crowded.
We would love to have you and your family back, but this time without the hiccups.

100x better than any hotel stay.
Summarizing doesn't do this property justice.
First of the owners are phenomenal, very accommodating and responded quickly to questions and concerns.
As for the property, everything was accurate according to listing. Perfect location for disney parks visit, as well as shopping and food. The neighborhood was quiet and safe.
My family and I really enjoyed our stay. We used every amenity and enjoyed them all.
We paid for pool heat and it kept up to swim temp for better part of the day into late evening. Owners provided plenty of pool chairs,floats and toys so you dont need to bring any of that. As well as a few towels.
Kitchen was fully stocked to cook. All the bedrooms have tv with cable.
The game room has a variety of games to keep kids and adults entertained. And there is even a portable AC unit to use, I know there were some reviews stating how hot it is in there so this may have been an updated addition.
Overall our stay here was 100 times better than any hotel stay. Complete privacy, close proximity to Disney and just about everything to keep everybody entertained.
We definitely will rent again but next time we will make sure it’s heated. Even tho it was hot the hot tub was not hot. The kids had a blast in the pool! Also the right front burner did not work on the stove. Overall we had a great time!
Hi! I’m happy that you and your family had a great time at the house. It can get a chilly in the nights making the pool cooler in the day and pool heat will be needed. Pool/spa heat wasn’t ordered for your booking. The cleaners removes the stove burner and sometimes it’s not snapped back in place. The management company is only a phone call away and would have gladly come to the house.
It’s a 2 second fix and your pots would be bubbling with your delicious meal :)
We’d be happy to have you back. Hope to hear from you for your next Disney vacation.
An excellent place to stay
Cannot fault this property. The website totally accurate, the location is perfect, you get exactly as described and more. Michelle could not have been more helpful in responding to queries. Party of seven, grandparents, parents and three teenagers. Pool amazing. Would be hoping available if we return to Orlando!
Oconnor Towers is off Highway 192, five minutes west of Interstate 4. The neighborhood has a variety of playgrounds for vacationing visitors to enjoy, putting green and a play area with a slide for the children. Numerous restaurants and stores like the Outback Steak House, Red Lobster, McDonalds, Subway, Winn-Dixie Food Store, Walgreen’s Drug Store and many more, are all located within a mile or two, on highway 192 and Formosa Gardens Blvd.
Who needs to cook!
The entrance to Walt Disney World is five minutes away. So close, that the firework display from Epcot can be seen from the pool. Market Street at Celebration, Old Town Shopping, Downtown Disney’s Pleasure Island, Downtown Disney’s West Side, Universal City Walk, are all within twenty minutes of Indian Creek. Golfers will fall in love with this estate, as the Mystic Palms Golf and Country Club are only moments away.
