Family Disney vacation

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this house to anyone looking for accommodations when traveling to the Orlando area (especially for a Disney vacation). The location was great and a quick drive to all the parks with minimal traffic throughout the entire week. The house was spacious, clean, and the pool was fabulous. The golf course was also a treat to play! We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: We think these guests have summed up everything that is great about our house. They stayed during one of the busiest times of the year as well. We absolutely love it and think you will too when you stay with us.

Everything the owner promised

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from three lovely weeks in your villa. Everything was as promised, villa was lovely and clean with everything we needed. My wife runs a cleaning company and if she was pleased it must have been good. Had one very small query which the management company dealt with straight away.

Would/hope to book this villa again and would definately recommend.

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay in Haines City. Nice location and close to all attractions. Villa had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We felt safe in the secure gated community. Walmart close by for all essential shopping. Peaceful street. Pool was great for a cool down after the excessive heat during the day. Good communication with Kevin and look forward to our next visit🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Just ok

  • 2 of 5

Twin beds are hard as brick and qn & king ok. The house is ok but don't expect to communicate much with owner hard to get a hold of was waiting for info on address 48 hrs before arriving still had no info had to call VRBO to get them to call him he lives in the uk finely was email was scared it was a scam. The ping pong table wasn't put together rite and it fell we got blamed for it screws were not tighten and the latches were not latched. Next time will try another place if there is a next time! I am just being truthful. Oh when it says solar heat don't expect much.

The spa was cold plus before we got the pool pump quit and the water was looking little green the pool guy told us that they come on Wednesdays but we still had to pay full price. Don't expect much from the guys that take care place the owner doesn't communicate with the one guy I talked to either. Like I said before just truthful.

Owner's Response: Beds - Well you can never account for people's tastes in bed comfort. We upgraded beds in the house and have not had any complaints about these ones previously. I personally find them very conformable and have had previous guests comment positively also. Correspondence - I endeavour to communicate with all guests within 24 hours, depending upon where they are emailing from. I live and work in England which often means emails come in during the night from different parts of the World. These particular guests had not received the final arrival information that had been sent directly to their email account. They escalated using VRBO and HomeAway, quite correctly as they were concerned that I had not responded. I resent the information which they acknowledged. Table Tennis (Ping Pong) table. First things first the table was fine prior to these guests arriving. All guests are advised to report any damage or missing items to my local management company so that any issues can be dealt with. The villa is cleaned and inspected after each guest leaves and upon the departure of these guests my manager reported that table had been completely wrecked and taped together with duct tape. This has cost me almost $400 to replace. Solar Heat - The Solar heater heats the pool up to a very warm 88 degrees Fahrenheit which is around 31 degrees Celsius. This is typically the temperature of a small learners pool at a leisure centre a normal swimming pool in a leisure centre is around 82F 28/29 C or cooler if used for racing. The spa has a separate gas heater and will heat up further but is an extra cost identified in the pricing structure. This is $15 per day on top of the solar heating and is optional. The spa bubbles will still work without the heater, the spa will be the same temperature as the pool without the gas heater. Pool Pump - Yes the impellor on the pool pump broke the day before the guests left. Unfortunately these things happen which meant the spa water level had dropped. My manager lives on the estate and is constantly at hand to deal with any issues but a replacement pump was required that was replaced the following day but after these guests had left. Final note. After these guests left my manager reported that bedding had been stained and needed dry cleaning. I decided to replace it all instead. The guests security deposit was withheld to pay for the replacements of bedding and table tennis table. This was the first time in 10 years I have done so.

Great Villa that was ideal for our stay in Florida

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in several villas in the Orlando area, this is easily one of the best we have visited. The facilities were great and the villa was nice and clean overall, good space and with just about everything you need. We liked the location because it puts you in an easy driving distance of most attractions and there are plenty of places to eat out or for groceries etc such as the large walmart near the entrance to the community.

It will certainly be at the top of our list if we return to Orlando in the future.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My family came together for the first time in 2 years - 23 yr old son, 19 yr old daughter, 10 yr old son and 5 yr old and my parents. This place provided perfect accommodations for us. It was clean, nicely decorated and provided plenty to keep us busy. The neighbors were friendly and it is located in a safe location. 45 mins from parking lot to all Disney resorts, it complimented our 7 day pass nicely. A little far, but we still came back for a break every day, savings $$$ in food costs. We called Guy twice and both times he was wonderful and accommodating. Once was to heat the spa (xtra cost) and once to bring us a key. All in all, I leave a little melancholy wondering when I'll be together with my family, but with a happiness for such an incredible visit. Thank you Kevin!!

Owner's Response: I would like to advise that we are 20 minutes to the entrance to the Disney World if the most direct route is taken via the Interstate. It can take longer to actually get to where you park but December is a very busy month. I'm very pleased this family enjoyed their stay and had a great family reunion.
