We were very pleased with this house - it is on a nicely maintained secure gated community, it is very clean and well furnished with lots of space for our party of 6 to spread out. There are televisions in every bedroom and my daughters enjoyed the pool. It is around half an hour from Disney, slightly further to Universal but closer to Legoland which is worth a visit if you have younger children. The traffic in Orlando especially on I4 seemed to be worse than on our previous visit 9 years ago but the drive to and from the parks wasn't too bad, apart from Friday evenings and the house was definitely great value for money. There are two large supermarkets very close by and we especially liked Publix. The only very minor gripe was that the sink garbage disposal wasn't working, we didn't even mention this as we are so unused to having these in the UK! We definitely won't leave it so long till our next visit as we didn't have enough time to do everything we wanted to do so we will be back and we wouldn't hesitate to stay in this property again. We were all sad to leave our home from home in Florida, thanks for letting us stay in your lovely house Vic.
Stayed in this beautiful Villa with my family and girlfriend and would highly recommend it! The Villa was clean, spacious, well equipped and close to all amenities. The owner Vic was helpful in the run up to and during our stay. The pool was perfect for relaxing after a day at the parks. We hope to return again soon!
Whilst the villa was to a very high standard, there where a couple of issues regarding the blinds, which were immediately sorted by the managing agents. We did not use the BBQ, due to the fact that it had not been properly cleaned by the previous occupants, and there was a residue of pop corn below one of the tables. Whilst these are Minor issues, we feel that we ought to mention them.The equipment within the villa was quite adequate, however, there was a shortage of wine glasses. We experienced that it was possible lock the bathroom doors and closing them from the outside, resulting in not being able to access them at all. Perhaps it would be advisable to leave instructions as to using the emergency key to re-open them. By and large we had a wonderful stay and would not hesitate to recommend this villa.
We had a very nice time. It was a beautiful, spacious facility. Our grandkids really enjoyed the pool and game room. There was plenty of room and the house was nicely maintained.
From the pictures and descriptions I had expected a wonderful stay for our family. The house was definitely large enough for 7 of us. The property management team did not show to explain the features until we had issues. First the wrong WiFi information, second bug infestation, and TV issues.
This property should be updated as it appears dark inside each area of the house. Fresh paint and bright colors would be refreshing. Cracked counters and flooring is not eye appealing.
It was a great stay the home was beautiful.My family enjoyed it so much I would Do it again in the near future. And would recommend it to a Friend and or family member .
Thanks Mr. Vic
My trip to Florida, usually this time of year, is a handful to plan. I usually reward my two college age sons with a trip somewhere warm after a productive year at schools in the chilly northeast. It's usually very difficult to pull off a time when we can all get away so I can't have distractions and such. Everything has to run smoothly and accommodations must be top shelf without any issues. This was the case with Vic's place here in Haines City.
First and foremost - 5 stars for security. The house is in a gated community with 24 hr. security on duty. Very nice people manning a well managed gate.
The house is as advertised - cleanliness is paramount and there were no issues. The home is well decorated. We each had our own suite which was awesome (with two bedrooms / 4 beds to spare). You can walk to the lake down the street - very pretty and you can fish off of the docks. The house is close to all major attractions.
Great game room. Laundry room was modern with everything working well. We spent a lot of time at night in the pool and surrounding area - again no issues and clean. Kitchen area was great - no lacking of dishes and small appliances.
We did a shopping run upon arrival for supplies, snacks and breakfast food - left most of it there ha! The only negative - and I hate to refer to it as such - was that the ice maker wasn't working. We grabbed a bag of ice that lasted the week at the Publix during shopping all was blissful for cocktails. The only reason I mention the ice maker is for Vic's own knowledge. For us it was a non-issue and we never made a call about it.
I have rented many houses on both coasts in Florida. I would soooo recommend this to a family member or friend. Five stars for sure - I'll be a repeat customer.
