All was in working order, and very clean. We are happy, and would book again. Location works well for visiting theme parks.
This house was approx 10 miles from Disney on the way to Clermont, Florida and a great location for Disney parks. It was approx 25 miles from Universal parks though, so bear this 40 minute drive in mind. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the location. The security gates through into the community were a great comfort. We paid a $50 deposit with the letting company to obtain a "vehicle card" to gain access easily through the gates for our stay - it is well worth doing this as there was often a few people waiting on the security check side of entry. The house itself is big, light and spacious. The rooms were generous and clean/tidy. Plenty of towels for the pool/bathroom in the airing cupboard and fresh bedding. You get a just few loo rolls, no washing up liquid, no dishcloths and no welcome tray so ensure that you take/buy these essentials. The pool is a good size but felt cold so I would pay for heating from October onwards. The letting company were available on a freephone number and sorted out most of the problems we had. A very good house, but not excellent. I wouldn't return, mainly because of the location rather than anything else. Thank you.
Chris the owner was so very helpful. A family golf weekend was ruined by Hurricane Irma. We stayed at the house as the hurricane passed. Chris sent his neighbors to check on us and bring supplies. He was in constant communication. All went well. Oh, the house is beautiful!
We stayed at Autumn Glen in September and had a wonderful stay. The house was clean when we arrived and there were no major issues during our stay. The only problem we did have was with the front gate, they didn't seem to understand we were renting the house for a week. But I do appreciate the sense of security I felt because it was a gated community, so it wasn't that big of a deal to me.
We picked this rental for two reasons: price and location. The price was extremely competitive and a definitely a great value for what the house has to offer. The washer and dryer was such a lifesaver, I have two toddlers and they have a habit of creating an overwhelming amount of laundry. But thankfully I was able to keep up on it and we all went home with all of our clothes clean! My family also loved the pool, it was a great place to relax after being out in the hot sun all day. We came to Florida to take our children to Disney World for the first time and this house was the perfect location for us. It's about 20 minutes driving time away from Magic Kingdom. There's also a Publix, Starbucks and Walmart all within 5 minutes or so.
My family also enjoyed the game room and we spent many hours out there playing air hockey. Plenty of storage for luggage/clothes and a very large pantry to fit any groceries you may buy.
This is definitely our go-to rental in the Orlando area and we will be back before too long!
Our family drove to Florida for our Disney vacation with my mother in tow, so a house was a better option for us than two $$$ hotel rooms $$$ in the resorts. Especially with my mother present, we just wanted a quiet place to come & relax after crazy days at Disney resorts. This house was perfect!
The pool was wonderful & utilized every evening by the kids. We sat comfortably on the shaded patio to relax while they played. There were also table games available in the garage like foosball, which was a pleasant surprise. Each bedroom was comfortable for our purposes, which included my husband & I (master), my two children (twin beds room), & my mother (other bedroom). The kitchen had all the dishes & cooking items we required, & it was wonderful having washer & dryer. The living room was comfortable for five people, & we never felt crowded - which is something with a 5 & 8 year old running around. The location was great, & it only took us about 20 minutes to get to the Disney parks. Walmart was right down the road for our grocery needs. The owner, Chris, was excellent with communication & made our arrival very easy with detailed instructions. There was a binder provided by the management company with any information we might need.
I try to be completely honest in my reviews, so I'll address a few discomforts. There was often a large bug discovered in the morning, but he/she was always dead or mostly dead, which shows spraying is being done to keep that at a minimum. This is Florida, so only one a day is actually pretty great. There are some dings and cosmetic issues around the house, like water damage on dressers & scuffs on walls, but that comes with renting a house. Overall, it was in great condition considering the amount of people that come in & out. I saw this in another review, so I'll address it. There is no garbage disposal in the kitchen sink. You can't put stuff down the sink, but this helps to keep the buggies at a minimum, so I was actually pleased there wasn't one. As the owner stated, there is weekly curb trash removal & the days are posted to make it easy.
As mentioned by another review, the biggest annoyance was the gate to the community. Now a gate key is offered with a deposit, so there is a way around this if it really bothers you. The gate was a comfort to me, because it shows security in that neighborhood. The first time we stopped, my husband scanned his ID in & told the guard where we were staying as the directions stated. After that, he could just scan his ID in & they would let us through - a brief pause. The issue for us came when we would get our approval to proceed, then another car would zoom by on the right & take our place in getting in. We would have to wait & scan again, because the bar would come down before we could get there. This is by no means is the owner or management group's fault, & they do provide an alternative if you find that off putting. If this was our main annoyance, it just shows we had a great stay.
Overall, this house was perfect for us. All of the issues were minor ones that barely effected our enjoyment of our vacation, if at all. When we come to Florida, we will definitely stay here again. A wonderful experience! Thank you so much, Chris!
We stayed here for our disney vacation and we had such a great time. It was such a convienant drive to disney. The house was beautiful the only downside was the entrance to the community which was a pain. All and all a great stay 66other than that!
We stayed at Autumn Glenn the first week of April. Close to all the Disney attractions. House was beautiful! Very comfortable accommodations and clean. We are from Michigan so we ate all meals on the patio area by pool soaking up the beautiful Florida weather! We will definitely be back and seeking to rent this home again. Chris the owner was amazing to work with. This was our first experience with a vacation rental and he made the transaction so easy.
Thank you Chris!
