Not for us

  • 3 of 5

Positives:

Gated community

Number of bedrooms

Nicely decorated

TVs (which we didn't use due to our schedule)

Negatives:

Difficult to communicate - maintenance is handled by a 3rd party and their availability is only Monday through Friday - around 9:30am to 4:30pm. Check-in is at 4pm. So, if you find anything wrong, you are out of luck as owner just redirects all queries to management company.

Poor check in experience - no visit by either owner or maintnenance company staff during our stay of 7 days. We were given wrong security code to check in. So alarms were blaring during our check in. All our kids were scared. Maintenance company didn't pick up the phone and only way was to contact the owner via email. No info on Wifi code, whereabouts for trash bags etc

May be wrong expectations: Dishwasher didn't close properly. Trash bags weren't there. Second night one of the bed was broken. Discovered that previous guests had broken it and it seemed it was not properly fixed. Left a voicemail to management company, no response. Basic toiletries were missing. Even dishwashing soap was limited which couldn't have lasted 7 days if dishwasher would have worked. Told the owner and she just asked to send a voicemail.

Also, one thing we realized late was that checkout time was 10 instead of 11 (contract says 11 whereas welcome letter says 10 so a breach of contract. We realized it too late that instead of contract, they insisted it is 10). So we were a bit late for which we did call the management company. However, still the owner was prompt to point out that she would like to charge us for the late check-out. I understand it is a policy but at the same time, with so many kids, there should have been some consideration when we had already called the management company at 10:30 that we are leaving at 10:45. However, we were sort of pushed out at 10:45 which resulted in us leaving some of the things messy as cleaners had told us they will take care of it and not a big deal.

It was a learning experience for us that probably we should have stuck with tried and tested properties and probably our expectations were wrong. We expected to spend more time enjoying the parks rather than doing grocery for trash bags and toilet paper as owner won't have any!

Superb villa in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

This property was in an ideal location for all Disney attractions as well as great golfing facilities which was exactly what me and my party were looking for.

The fact it was in a gated community gave us the added assurance of security.

I would definitely recommend this property and if I return in the future, would book again.

Fantastic house, owner obviously prides themselves on its quality.

  • 5 of 5

This is the best house we have rented in Orlando. The pool heating was really nice and required in March. House entertainment was great with the games room and excellent TV package, found English football and movies amongst the hundreds of channels. The area is quiet ensuring a good rest in the comfortable beds. I will be checking this house availability in future. House management company made a mistake but this was quickly rectified once reported.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at this residence in HighGate Park. We found the house to be exactly as it was pictured. It provided plenty of space for 5 adults to spread out and enjoy some quiet time, or to be together and play games, watch a movie, etc. It is a very short distance from a Publix (grocery store), and just around the corner from several restaurants and attractions. The gated community felt very safe as we took walks/runs in the evenings. The kitchen was well supplied, and we ate breakfast at the house several mornings rather than waiting in line at local establishments. We had the pool heated, and found it to be "like bath water", so that it could be used even on the "chilly days". The only real issue we had at all was that the hot water heater was not adequate for 5 adults if we all tried to take a shower in the morning. The last 2 individuals received cold showers. So we staggered our showers between some taking them at night, and some in the morning. We also found that the cable box for the 60" screen flashed an error the entire time we were there and was not usable. It was a SmartTV though, so we just made use of our Hulu / Amazon accounts, for those times we just wanted to kick back and relax. The game room was well supplied (as shown in the pictures). The beds were very comfortable - not too soft and not too hard. There are two bedrooms downstairs which share a bath that is located between them. Three other bedrooms are located upstairs. the one is a Master bedroom suite with a bath of its own. The owner was quick to respond to every inquiry that I made, and had our deposit returned to us within a few short days. I would recommend this rental highly, and found it to be a great place to stay.

Very nice property.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay and would use the location again. Approx 20 minutes to Disney parks and 40 minutes to Universal. The property was well maintained and had ideal facilities for our stay.

Owner provided good communication throughout the booking process.

Supermarkets located close by and a selection of bars and restaurants only a short drive away.
