Love the area the house was nice and support team helpful. my family enjoyed staying there and are hoping to visit again
Looked into loads of villas before booking this one. Ticked all the boxes at the best price.located just off formosa Blvd, off the 192 so very handy for restaurants, shops etc.about 25 to 30 mins from universal, less to sea world/aquatica and less again to the Disney parks.
The villa had everything we needed, as described in advert and photos,.there were only 4 of us so we had plenty of space. The neighbourhood was nice and quiet.
The pool was used well, we didn't need pool heating due to the time of year we visited. The pool area looks directly onto a lake which is very peaceful and relaxing. There were plenty of regular bird visitors to the lake and we had daily visits from a pair of sandhill cranes who walked round the back and front of the villa.
There was a fishing rod in the garage which we didn't use but saw a couple of people
Catch some fish from the lake. There is also a fountain in the lake which lights up at night, which isn't always on, but is very nice to watch when it is.
The only things we could suggest is a larger umbrella for the outside table ,as the sun is over the pool area from about 10 am till sunset( which you can watch every evening from the pool area)
Overall this villa is perfect for an orlando holiday, we would definitely come back.
Ps The directions given to villa from airport are accurate and easy to follow however are outdated when describing road tolls, there is now only one toll of $2.25 rather than the 2 smaller tolls described on instructions, this toll is manned( if you choose correct lane) so you don't have to worry about having correct change. Ann who deals with the villa rental is helpful and replys to questions quickly .
There were five adults and one child. We visited during the rainy season so that may have been the reason for the roaches. There weren't a lot but enough to keep us out of the garage. The house was very clean otherwise. One reviewer mentioned the lack of comfortable sitting space. I have to agree especially during the rainy season. We also had problems with the beds . It was obvious that the cheapest mattresses on the market were purchased. We had two seventy plus adults in our company and they were in such pain after the first night we had to go to Target for mattress toppers for all the beds. It helped some but it wasn't ideal.
The justification for three stars was the quick response for the air conditioning. For some reason it stopped working. That's a big deal in Florida. The. Management was responsive within the hour. Other problems like the bugs, leaky windows, and noisy fans I hope they will address once we leave.
Note: It's well worth it to pay the extra money for the heated pool. I can't attest to the temperature in August after daytime temperatures of ninety plus for several weeks but in June and early July the pool temperature never got above fifty-five. Also the Jacuzzi is useless without heat.
Ann, thanks for everything. Perfect location, great place! Very comfortable house.
The house is well maintenance and quiet condo.
