This quiet location is in a neighborhood that's as close to Disney and many restaurants and shops as you can get. The owner is so helpful and really takes on board ensuring that you have a wonderful stay. This is my second visit and it was exactly the same as before. Yes, it is one of the older neighborhoods, but that's what makes the location perfect and the villa is equipped with all you need. Personally, we were out so much that we didn't look for more. The pool was wonderful for a refreshing swim after a long day exploring what we came for...parks! And lastly, the price is so very good value for all that you get with this villa; I wouldn't waste my money and time going farther away and I shall come again!
This villa has many conveniences such as very close proximity to Hwy 192 and all Disney attractions. Nestled in a quiet peaceful community. There are pros and cons of the villa. I have been to Kissimmee many times and have rented many condos/homes. This was my first one with a private pool.
Pros... The villa was exceptionally clean with attention to detail. Everything you would need to cook a meal was provided such as pots/pans, utensils, plates, cups, etc. The owner Christine was superb with any questions we had and responded very quickly. She was super pleasant! There was plenty of blankets,bath towels and wash cloths along with sheets and pillows, however we only had 1 kitchen towel and 1 hand towel in the bathroom. Lots of furniture but it is all oudated and the sofas are torn. The house is huge!
Cons... by far the greatest disappointment was the pool. Not sure when the advertised pictures were taken but they are clearly not what you see when you arrive! The entire pool surface, walls, floor and surrounding deck area were pitted and discolored making it look like the pool is rusted. It looks terrible! There are no hand rails to get in or out of the pool. (Not sure that this is required but would certainly be a safety factor when renting a home). Additionally, though the entire pool area is screened there are many, many little bugs and flying gnats in the pool itself. The water was clear and chlorinated but despite using the provided skimmer to get the bugs out, there were still many little bugs constantly, making swimming an unpleasant experience. There was plenty of pool furniture in good shape to lounge on.
Lastly, I was quite shocked that there was no toilet paper or garbage bags provided. You only get the toilet paper that is left on the roll in both bathrooms and the bag that is in the kitchen garbage can.
(This is however explained once you read the large book on the counter). I felt a bit belittled by the numerous signs and notes posted on multiple walls about various rules and regulations such as door locks, washing machines, light switches, etc., though I get it. Some renters do not follow rules.
Overall, the place is nice but clearly requires long overdue renovations.
The location is wonderful. Very near Disney and all the exciting amenities. Wonderful safe neighborhood and great pool area for relaxation
Firstly, thanks for letting us stay in your holiday home. Must say communication with Christine was very good.
Let me start with the positives. Nice house style and layout in a good neighbourhood, very well equipped (love the mains BBQ!) and a great location. The areas contracted to the management company were very clean and response to a call to replace failed light bulbs was very good.
The house décor itself is dated - of course this is only our opinion and it may well be to others taste. We did have an issue with the pool area which needs attention (must stress that it is very clean though) Part of the deck area and pool bottom is very pitted and needs resurfacing. Again, it is very clean and the water very clear.
Finally may I echo what others have said in that the CRT TV was maybe state-of-the-art once, but now looks old-fashioned with no USB/HDMI capability. Not a major criticism as we were kind of aware, but it may be important to others and of course it is too late to discover this when you get there!
In summary, we had a great time and it would not take much to make this villa 5 star!
P.S. Christine reacted positively to our comments and says that she intends to address the issues I have mentioned
Absolutely perfect, we'll equipped with plenty of everything. Pool and washer and dryer so we can fully relax. Close to Disney Parks and Shopping Malls. Will definitely be booking again. Nice quiet area with plenty of space.
This place was great. Way better than I expected. And centrally located around everything. It is a really nice place loved the pool. I really loved talking to Christine ( owner) she has been amazing to deal with. We plan to use this place again next year. It Has everything you could ask for. We absolutely loved staying here.
What can I say, my husband and I have just had 4 wonderful weeks in this villa . Good location, close to Disney,restaurants and supermarkets. Large pool villa had all facilities for a home from home holiday. It was a pleasure dealing with Christine (owner) lovely lady . We hope to book the villa again in the near future, and take family with us next time , will recommend to family and friends ,
