My husband was very impressed and my teens said it was their favourite part of the trip. We loved the layout of the house, and the teens liked having their own room. We were 15 min away from all parks. That is where we spent most of our time. My family agreed that it was nice to come back from a long day at the parks and have our own space instead of being cooped up in a hotel. We felt safe walking around the gated community and it was nice to look out to a pond instead of a fence or wall. If we spent more time at the house during the day, we would of asked to have the pool heated because it was REALLY cold!(even on a hot day).
This house waswonderful! This was the first time I rented a house on our vacation, instead of a resort or hotel. This was hands down our best vacation yet! The pictures of this home do not do it justice! The gated community was lovely. We also loved having our own pool to hang out in!
We had a few minor issues upon arrival, but Cindy & Mike with the management company were beyond helpful. Mike even took the time to chat with us Wisconsinites about the Badgers football season.
This was a GREAT overall experience & We will DEFINITELY be staying here on all of our future vacations! We will also be recommending your home to all of our friends and family!
THANK YOU for sharing your home with us!!
The location of the villa was great, located in a really nice gated community.
The villa was clean and tidy on our arrival although we fealt parts of the villa were a bit tired and in need of Modernising.
The pool area was great getting the sun until late afternoon. The bottom of the pool had a lot of grit / dirt on the bottom and was in need of a clean.
I was disappointed that we did not get a reply from Stephen when we re-sent the photos of the unusable BBQ on our second day. (Re sent as Stephen could open the first photos)
The photographs clearly showed the gas BBQ had completely rusted away and was dangerous/ unusable.
This was a great home for our week in FL. We spent countless hours in the pool and it was so nice to be able to throw in a load of laundry and cook our own meals. I wish it had been recommended to purchase pool heat (we come from WI, we think FL is hot all the time!). However all it took to have it turned on was an email to Stephen and we had a heated pool by the next night. Our only complaint about the villa is the temperature inside. It is permanently set at 76-78 degrees. During our stay it wasn't hot enough outside for the air con to kick on so it was hot, muggy, and stuffy inside the villa most of the time. Also, we felt the CCTV cameras should have been disclosed in the villa description. While I can appreciate and understand the need for security, it would have been nice to know the pool area was being taped 24/7. Overall great place to stay and contact with the owner was superb!
The villa looks stunning in all the photographs however it is much better in real life. The communication was good throughout the booking process and very clear instructions were given for directions and all aspects of security. This was the first time we have stayed in a gated community and certainly not the last.
There are four big bedrooms with one ensuite shower room and a main family bathroom. The only negative I have to say is the ensuite is looking tired and not as clean as the rest of the property.
The pool was lovely to come home to after long days in the parks. I would definitely recommend the heating option if you visit at this time of year.
Although there were people in the houses either side, hedges gave us privacy and we never really noticed them.
My son spent time fishing in the lake and was pleased when he caught some fish - rods were found in the garage.
Shopping was easy with Walmart on the corner of the road and the many restaurants made it fun to pick where/what we wanted to eat.
All in all it was a wonderful holiday in a great villa.
