Location cannot be beat..rental needs some tweaks
This place is currently a 4 star house, but with some small tweaks would be a 5. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood. It is close to a shopping area with a grocery store and several casual restaurants and also fast food places. You can get to the shopping area and most Disney attractions without going near that traffic mess on International Dr. The house is HUGE. Even if you had 10 people in the house you would not be crowded. The bedrooms are all large. The baths and beds are clean and comfortable. The laundry has a large washer and dryer. The lanai/ pool area is very nice. The pool has a child fence which is wonderful if you have small children. We watched the Disney fireworks show every night at 9:15 while sitting in the lanai.
Here is why I didn't give it 5 stars.
When we arrived at check in time (3:00PM) it was about 89 degrees outside. The house indoor temp was 84 degrees. It took about 14 hours for the house (this place is HUGE) to cool down. Our first night was miserably hot. We thought about going out and buying fans so we could get to sleep. The door has a smart lock. The owner needs to install a Nest, so he can lower the thermostat several hours before renters arrive. This may be the only house south of the Mason-Dixon line that does not have any ceiling fans. The bedrooms and sitting areas need ceiling fans.
There is a sitting area downstairs and also a large family (?) room upstairs. Both have large flat screen TVs. There is no cable and no antennae connections. There is a good WI-FI connection, and you can watch Netflicks but nothing else. We wanted to watch network news (Notre Dame fire and Mueller report release occurred while we were there) but were limited to what we could get on our phones. At the least, there should be a basic cable connection. There are no lamps in the sitting areas (only a ceiling light....that ought to be a ceiling fan). The lighting at night is not good. (You could not sit and read here).
The pool is very large and nice, but it is unheated and has no solar blanket. Most of the days we were here the daytime temperature was in the low 80s and partly cloudy. The pool was really too cold to swim in.
There is an outside fire pit, but no grill. Most of the basics are provided, but there was no broom/dustpan for our use. I liked this place but its not a cheap rental and needs some tweaks to be wonderful.
Very comfortable house and great location
We stayed in this house for a guys golf trip and it worked perfectly for our needs. The location is excellent for Windermere and Disney. It’s very clean and comfortable.
Great house. Nice neighborhood. Plenty of space
Fantastic house! My only tiny suggestion would be put a few more towels in there somewhere. But still overall 5 stars!!!!
