  • Our first choice when vacationing in Orlando

    "We are from North Carolina and we stayed here for one week for our daughter's high school graduation trip to Orlando/Universal Studios. We took all the grandparents with us and my cousin and her family from Nashville, TN also joined us. We had plenty of room for everyone and the best thing was each bedroom having its own bathroom. And believe me, with 3 teenage girls, that was an absolute necessity!! Staying at a villa with its own pool is also an absolute for us and this villa had a fantastic pool area. The view of the lake made it very private since there are no houses behind the house. There are plenty of chairs & 2 tables for everyone to be able to sit outside. The villa has has a gas grill and a charcoal grill, so it really helps not having to run an oven in the house when cooking dinners. We only ate out one time for dinner, as we really enjoyed just hanging out in the pool and grilling dinner. There is one master bedroom downstairs which is great for anyone who may have difficulties going up and down stairs. The other bedrooms are upstairs and there really is a lot of room in the bedrooms/bathrooms. Plenty of closet space as well in each bedroom. There are two full-size sofas in the main living area, which is tremendous for a villa that sleeps 14 people! Most villas only have 1 couch and it's always a mystery as to where people are to sit while watching TV when you have a big group. The kitchen overlooks the main living area, so everyone can be in that area together. The kitchen has plenty, plenty, plenty of storage. Huge pantry!! The neighborhood is gorgeous, clean and quiet. The only thing that we had issues with was coming back into the neighborhood during the hours of 8pm-10pm and the security guard not being there to open the gate for us. We waited several nights, with the longest wait being 20 minutes. Note, this has nothing to do with the owners or the villa, but I just wanted to make you aware that this is a possibility and could be an issue if you have anyone in your vehicle needing to get to your villa ASAP. Overall, this is the best villa we've ever stayed in while vacationing in Florida (and we vacation a lot in Florida). The owners were an absolute delight to work with and made us feel very comfortable during the entire rental process. This will be our 1st villa choice for all future FL vacations, even if we don't need all 7 bedrooms! Thank you Sheila and Gary! Sincerely, The Mayberrys"

  • More like a 3.5 but 3 seems too harsh

    "While this home certainly has some positive qualities (and I will list them in paragraph two), there also are some part truths in the description. The "secured" golf course community has no more security than locks on the home's doors. The home actually sits directly adjacent to a rather busy road with the barrier of a large shrub on that side. The lanai is HUGE. It is also terribly dirty and with one working light bulb about 15 feet off the ground. The furnishings in the lanai consisted of four plastic chairs that were quite dirty. The "grill" is a small metal propane cooktop on a terribly dirty metal table. This all makes the lanai mostly unusable and an unpleasant space. The landscape, while once possibly beautiful, is in need of much care. Each the kitchen sink and one of the master bathroom sinks dripped continuously. We had trouble accessing the WiFi. The owner said she would have someone call to help us about WiFi but we got no call. The positives are that Apopka was a nice community with many things for us to do and is easily accessible to other areas. The lot is huge. The owner was prompt in responding when setting up the stay and also while we were at the house. The house is quite large and all on one level and with a bit more attention to the details, it could be great."

  • Lovely home, with one glaring issue

    "We spent a week at the Patriot's Landing home, and were overall very pleased with a few exceptions. The home is very comfortable, with lovely furnishings and is extremely convenient to all Orlando attractions. However, the front bedroom with the attached balcony is in DESPERATE need of blackout drapes. Being awakened at 6:00 am by blazing Florida sunshine is not anyone's idea of a good time while on vacation. In addition to keeping the room comfortable for sleeping, drapes would lower A/C costs for the owner, which is certainly a notable concern. We also noted a few other issues that should be addressed. The cold water lever for the Jacuzzi tube is broken and should be fixed. Also, guests should be made more aware of the sanitation schedule. We did not realize that garbage pick up was Monday morning, and by the looks of the overflowing garbage can outside, it seems as if other guests were unaware as well. A note placed in the kitchen (rather than in the guest book, which we did not even read until later in the week) would have helped tremendously. We also noticed dried bits of food stuck to supposedly clean dishes in the cupboards. Housekeeping should be made aware of this. Other than the listed items, we were very pleased with our choice of rental, and would be happy to visit the same unit again."
