"My husband and I stayed 3 nights in this VRBO. We were looking to get a way from the Michigan Snow and Cold - wanted something where we did not need to get a car. Used Orlando Limo Tour from the airport about 13 miles from this house. The place is cute, bed was comfy, good hot shower, location cannot be beat! We did not cook any meals here, just bought some snacks - did make use of the refrigerator. We are not hard to please people, but a few things worth mentioning; would have been nice to have more lighting in the driveway - walking back at night, it was dark. Also, we had to buy paper towel (there was none) and toilet paper (there was not enough toilet paper provided). That being said, I am sure if we contacted Margaret, she would have provided these items. The other thing that was a bit disappointing was the table and chairs in the little courtyard looked like they had not been cleaned is a long long time - it would have been nice to be able to sit out there and enjoy the weather & play cards, etc.... It has a nice TV and comfy couch to sit on. Needed to use the air conditioning upstairs on the last night - the air conditioning in the downstairs did not work (would not power on). Also, like others have said, if you have any mobility issues, the winding stairs inside are hard to maneuver; we used the outside stairs the most, which is a nice alternative.
We walked everywhere! All around Thornton Park, Lake Eola and Downtown Orlando. We ate at Shari Sushi, Graffiti Junktion (nachos come out on a huge pizza pan!), Anthony's, Lake Eola Wine Company, World of Beer (WOB), Gringo's Locos, we even ate at Panera (had a yummy quiche!), Starbucks and even 7-Eleven for a frozen Coke. We went to Sak Comedy Lab - that was GREAT - very good show! We did a sculpture tour on our own - took pictures of all 8 sculptures around Lake Eola; also the fountain in the middle was very cool! Still had the huge Christmas Tree up - which was beautiful, and had a light & music show a few times during the evening hours. A very cute little area and a good place to get a way for a few days, neighborhood felt safe and everyone was friendly."
