Family from Deal, United Kingdom Apr 2019

We have stayed in numerous villas in this area over the last 10 years and found this one to be somewhat disappointing and not up to the standards that others are setting.
Our first problem was that we were told that the Pool Heating would be on from 9am on the day we arrived. We made it to the villa by around 8pm and the pool temperature was too cold to swim in.
The following morning we attempted to swim before heading out for the day and the temperature at 8am was very cold.
We contacted the Agent to report a problem and I do not believe this was ever truly resolved. We were left a note saying that the temperature setting had been increased and that the run-time was increased by 2 hours. The heating went off at 5pm every day and by the time we got back, it was too cool to enjoy. Paying to heat the pool to a comfortable temperature is a waste of money. We spent time at the Water Parks where the water temperature was much more pleasant.
We also noticed that the Pool Alarm on the Patio Door did not work and there wasn't one fitted to the additional door from the bathroom. Fortunately our children are old enough to understand that they must be supervised, but younger children may be at risk. I believe there is a Federal requirement for these to be in place?
The location of the Villa is declared as 10 minutes from Disney, but the traffic and distance mean that Disney is realistically 45 mins drive. Universal took about an hour, so be prepared to spend a long time driving.
The villa is directly behind a Golf Club, who begin their day shortly after 5am. They do love to cut their Putting Green with a large, petrol powered mower and as the windows are single-glazed, you can be sure that you will be woken each morning to the sound of an enthusiastic Green-Keeper. Not ideal when you are on vacation!

There were a number of additional areas that we found to be lacking in attention and generally neglected. The pool-side patio drainage has plant-life growing from it and doesn't drain particularly well. There was a noticeable amount of debris in the pool, mostly leaves, which we struggled to fish out with a very battered skimming-net.
Interestingly, the pool screen door was padlocked and so couldn't be accessed from outside the villa, or opened from the inside if needed.
The lounge furniture is definitely in need of attention. There is a lot of mould on the seat frames and all of the cushions were in the garage on arrival, also soiled with evidence of mould. We would have expected these to be out and ready to use. Requests were posted to return the cushions when finished, but there is a chance that they would be damp.

The Lanai area was generally impractical, with no real option to eat outside, just a coffee-table and seats.
Indoors, the tiled floor is deadly with children walking through from the pool. Any water makes it extremely dangerous and slippery. We had to lay towels down to reduce the risk of slipping over.
The leather sofa with it's one recliner has definitely seen its best days. The fabric sofa near the kitchen was the only real comfortable seating area. The entire screened pool area looks neglected and tired. The screen framework is dirty and the floor needs a jet-wash.
The kitchen has a "very" basic level of facilities and there are areas that definitely need to be included in the cleaning when the Villa is prepared. With a £45 service fee, I would expect greater level of attention. Dust and dirt was very evident around the cooker and hood and the cutlery drawer needs emptying and cleaning out.
The garage and kitchen cupboard contain loads of DIY materials (paint cans etc) which I might be worried about with younger children. I would prefer to see that these are locked away whilst renting out to families.
As the villa was not the relaxing retreat that we had hoped for, we actually decided to check out a day early and booked into a hotel with heated pool. Here we spent a lovely few hours at the end of our holiday in the way that we had intended from the start, relaxing in the sun and enjoying a warm pool. This was definitely not planned or even budgeted for, but very much needed!

On a positive note, the key-coded door is a great idea and meant no key to lose whilst out and about. The fridge/freezer is also very good, but generally not a Villa we would rent again.
Note - I believe the observations we have made are largely a reflection of the villa management rather than of the owner, although Pool Heating was under the strict control of the owner from the UK.

As soon as I saw this review I dispatched my managers to investigate and remedy any issues. A lot of homes in Florida have tiled floors to help keep the house cool and we do encourage guests to use the bathroom directly off the pool deck rather than drip Chlorine water through the house. The golf course does cut their grass early but I’ve not known it be as early as stated as they have a requirement not to start too early. The sub tropical climate plays havoc with the pool area and pool furniture but it is regularly jet washed and the furniture is being replaced this year. There is a lock on one side of the pool deck for security purposes but the other side has a simple bolt and of course in emergency there is only netting surrounding the pool. We stress to all guests to carefully supervise their children at all times when in the pool area.
The pool heater is new and despite checking the temperature independently I am sorry the guest was not happy with 91 degrees which is well above what most owners set their heater.
We try to make our home as comfortable as possible but understand that this may not satisfy everyone. We try to use all feedback constructively and would encourage guests to contact us directly if they are unable to resolve issues to their satisfaction with our management

Communication between us and the owners was excellent answering any questions we had promptly. The Villa itself was in an excellent area with great access to all the Disney Parks. The place was clean and tidy and the entire family enjoyed our time and would quite happily stay again.

Thank you Robert. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back

Friends from Edinburgh, United Kingdom Jun 2018

We had a fantastic time in the villa. The villa itself is a very nice space, very clean with all the required amenities. The pool is a good size and has the sun all day. The seating area is shaded throughout the day which is a nice break. The area is a few minutes from a Walmart, many restaurants/fast food outlets and very easy to get around by car. The owner was fast at responding and very helpful. The only suggestion I would have to improve the property would be barbecue, although not a big deal with the many food options around. I would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone!

Thanks Danny glad you had a good time!

This is a lovely villa and convenient to shops restaurants and theme parks ( although it takes a little longer than 10 mins to Disney as stated ). It has easy access to all the major roads.
The pool area is spacious with a lovely view of the golf course but I do think cutting the grass using extremely loud machinery at 5-20am is a negative point. Maybe the notice in the pool area with regards to respecting neighbours between set hours should apply to the golf course!!
Communication with the owner was excellent and check in / check out was an easy process.
