About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
Having originally stayed at this house some 4 years ago it was a natural choice for our return to florida this year (March 2014). I am pleased to say the house once more lived up to all our expectations. There is nothing better than a day at the parks followed by a lazy evening soaking away those aches in the spa pool. Conveniently located for all of the attractions I have no problem in recommending this lovely house. All I need to do now is save up for our next visit!
3.7 based on 3 traveler reviews
The owners of the property should agree as they were notified of all of this. The property was not properly cleaned as there was a horrid smell of urine in the upstairs bathroom. We had to clean the bathroom ourselves. The ac was preset from the UK and it was very stuffy and hot inside. We had to wait two days for the temperature to be lowered in the UK after notifying the owners. Two of the upstairs bedrooms have no circulation of air as they have no ceiling fans.
Although you are quoted a price that includes cleaning of the property before and after your stay the owners then proceed to deduct 50% of your security deposit as an additional cleaning fee saying the place is left dirty when in actual truth in fact we arrived and found the place dirty. I believe it is a way to distort the true price being charged to rent the property so they advertise a low price and then deduct all or most of the security deposit to make more money.
Great family house for visiting Disney
The house is very well equipped and was beautifully clean and ready for us when we arrived.
There are five big bedrooms with comfortable beds, 2 of which are master suites so it is excellent for two familys sharing.The bedrooms all have televisions and a couple have games consoles.
The lounge areas are bright and airy with plenty of space for relaxing and eating. The family lounge has a very large television and is also equipped with useful books about the area.
The house has a lovely big pool with a well equipped large area for sunbathing and al fresco eating. There is also a great hot tub for relaxing in with a glass of wine after a day in the parks.
The house is situated within an short easy drive of all the parks and within 5 minutes of huge supermarkets.
The owner Gill has a huge wealth of knowledge about the area and the parks and she gave us an enormous amount of useful information and help before our holiday.
We had a fantastic time and are looking forward to re booking this house for our next Florida trip.
