I must say i was very disappointed when we arrived at the property.
Firstly the smell from the bins next to property wasn't pleasant, and to find the bin full and recycling full and overflowing of the previous occupants of the villa, and then they would expect us to put the rubbish out for collection at the end the week, we was not very pleased about, not only because of the smell but i feel this should not be left for us to do, I don't mind putting out my own rubbish or even a little that was left is understandable but not the amount that was left. Then to walk to to the pool area, and see the mess out there aswell, there was toys in the pool, the pool was dirty, the area around the pool and not been swept the pool cover was filthy, and then to read the owners guide about making sure the level of the pool is right, and it wasn't even at that level to start with. This is not what i would expect on arrival at the villa.
We did phone the management team and let them know about the rubbish and pool. They did send someone the next day to clean the pool/area as when we returned this had been done, but the rubbish was still left.
Unfortunately the neighbours were having work done aswell, which is not the owners fault, but maybe to be aware that work was taking place would give you the option to pick this villa or not, as listening to the workman radio out loud and tools going, is not what i want on holiday. Luckily it was only for for a few days.
we could not get the light in the lounge to work. I would also says the villa could do with with some TLC i found it to be a little tired and dated, towels worn and could do with replacing, Maybe a larger toaster as the villa is suppose to sleep 8, rug in bedroom kept curling up and had a very hard edge to it. Cups and cutlery were dirty in the cupboard, Would be nice if the inside Bin had a lid,(and this was a new one they left next day) instead of being open so you had to look at your rubbish all holiday Outside furniture could do with being updated, and I feel would look more appealing and comfortable.
Also maybe a few staples left to get you started on your arrival would be nice, as i bought detergent, toilet roll, kitchen roll, tea coffee sugar etc straight away and left the remainder when i left, and i imagine others did too. I had stayed in an apartment previous to this and this is what they did, if you used the staples, you just replenished them for the next occupant.
I would say that the complex the villa was on was lovely and in a good situation and felt very secure, but i personally would not stay in this villa again in its current status.

I hate to have to write this and that we had to complain, but i feel honest feedback is important, especially as this is suppose to be a time to relax and enjoy your vacation.

I was sorry to hear of your disappointment. I have checked with our management company and understand from them it is usual for the bins to be emptied only once a week and, depending on the day of arrival dictates as to how much refuse there is. Across the rentals in the community if bin day doesn't coincide with arrival day there will be refuse to put out by the next incoming guest. All the bedlinen, towels etc are routinely replaced during our time at the villa which will not be until August, which was when the pool furniture was replaced completely only last year.

As absent owners we are completely reliant on our management company, they advise they can provide a welcome grocery pack for a charge but the items are very subjective and not to everyone's personal taste., but toilet rolls are always left by them in the bathrooms. Most guests can't wait to get to Walmart and stock up on their favourite goodies. However, the matter of cleanliness is something that we will be taking up with them, although externally you will always get natural falling or windblown debris to some degree.

Once again, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your time at the villa, we do work hard to offer more than a generic tour operator home and we have many repeat guests who do enjoy coming back to the villa time and again.

What a fantastic villa to stay at at such a wonderful resort. This is the second time staying at this particular villa (and 4th at southern dunes) and once again it was out amazing. The contact with Elaine (the owner) has been brilliant making the transaction of booking so much easier. I would not hesitate to recommend anyone looking to stay in Florida but want to be far enough away from the whole Disney side but close enough to get too. Cannot wait for our next visit and will certainly by using Elaine and her gorgeous villa!!

The villa is in a lovely location on the golf course with security at the entrance. There is reasonable access to all the parks. We particularly liked the sunny pool area as well as the free wifi and international calls. However it appears that several major items have broken and not been replaced. The villa details stated there was a computer and printer as well as a safe, but these were not available and the management company were unable to repair or replace them. This needs to be fixed or removed from the description as these were some of the reasons for choosing this villa over the many others available. There appear to be various items in the villa that are looking a bit old and past it so should be replaced to make it a high standard. These include the settee, fridge and microwave. Also the pool furniture has seen better days and there was only one lounger. Overall these items did not stop us enjoying the stay and the management company helped where they were able to with our needs.

We were unable to get to the villa this year as the exterior required repainting which we went ahead with. We will be at the villa in January when we had already planned to refurb the kitchen, replace the pool furniture and lounge suite - all items which require personal owner input. I did miss the line in the listing referring to the pc and printer and this has now been removed. Finally, the safe was looked at and the code set permanently by a locksmith. I understand from the previous guest this is usable with new batteries and we will leave instructions on our next visit. We work very hard to maintain the villa and contents to a higher than average standard and feel we offer excellent value for money.

18 January 2013 We stayed in this fantastic villa over xmas whilst visiting the many parks of Orlando. The villa is even better than the pictures. It was IMMACULATE, very well and tastefully furnished, comfortable, peaceful, easy to get to. Seaworld, discovery cove, aquatica, Disney , Universal and the Kennedy space centre - all were in easy reach. Lots of great places to eat nearby. Walmart supermarket and dollar tree at the entrance to the estate The pool was lovely - we paid for the heating and it was toasty. The views over the golf course are great and it was wonderful to return to the peace and tranquility each day. Plenty of everything you need - kitchen equipment, towels etc. Large washing m/c and dryer in the garage The master bedroom is gorgeous - the bed is HUGE and very comfortable (and I am not easy to please) The other two rooms are also beautifully appointed. The owner and management company are extremely friendly and helpful. I cant see how anyone could be disappointed if they book to stay here - we would certainly book again.
