Be careful with these villas. Like many Florida holiday homes these were built with cheap kitchens and bathrooms and depending on the owner they can either be really nice or disgusting. We stayed in one a few years ago that was very nice and we were pleased, however we had someone to split the cost and payed for a good one. We stayed in one by ourselves July 2012. It was right at the end of glen eagles road and it was disgusting. It was/ is owned by a guy named Power. The day we arrived we found only one bed was fresh, the rest had been left unmade from the previous occupants. That was 4/5 beds not clean. The bathrooms were dirty and after a few days roaches were coming out. We had to clean it ourselves when we arrived! A that point the owner was holding about $500 damage deposit so we didn't know what to do. He could very easily have not given it back as he was in another country. We phoned the management company because he old fridge was so noisy you couldn't hear the tv and also there were not enough glasses. I mean, come on, a box of glasses is about $10! The utensils were dirty. So, be careful what you rent. Don't rent one with the old fridge and stove and old carpet and old beds. It's just not worth it to save a few dollars. Also, the pics might look good but a lot of them are few years old and the houses have since dilapidated. Only book renovated ones and have a plan in case you get there and it's disgusting.
