Excellent lanai and lots of room for our family.
May 19, 2014
We were a group of 10 - Dad/Mom/kids 13, 11, 9, 8, 4, 1. Gramma & Aunt. We have rented 6 times in 12 years in central FL. We didn't do WDW; we did many other theme parks this time around.
Price: perfectly priced from the get-go. Had they quoted higher, I would have kept looking. Lower and I would have feared a dud.
Overall: upon entering house it exceeded our expectations. Open floor plan and general layout were PERFECT for our group. The house was clean.
Location: Was fine for us as we needed I-4 to access Tampa, Space Coast, etc. Neighborhood was quiet and clean. Close to Publix/far from WalMart/Target.
Kitchen: up to date and clean appliances. Plenty of tableware. House had only the essentials for cooking/baking. Scrapped some planned meals b/c kitchen gear was minimal. Knives were very dull. Large pantry. Lots of outlets.
Lanai: OUTSTANDING. One of the largest we've seen. NICE CLEAN powder room (many homes do not have!!)Plenty of comfy & clean PVC furniture. We did have a hard time assembling safety gates; never did quite figure out. Screening is in excellent condition. Grill was in good working order. GREAT LANAI!
Bedrooms & baths: VERY comfortable beds. Perfect layout for our family. PLEASE NOTE: 4 FULL baths w/TUBS & 2 POWDER rooms. HOWEVER - one huge disappointment for us was no doors on master baths. If husband or I wanted to take a shower we had to lock the bedroom door to keep kids from seeking us out ("Dad, do you have batteries," etc.) this then left our spouse locked out of the bedroom during daytime. I know this is a FL-style thing but I never used the amazing tub b/c I couldn't bring myself to lock my husband out of our room while really trying to have privacy from kids. Also - this design was annoying at night if one of us needed to use the bathroom. This is likely not an issue for many, but we were very disappointed by this.
Game room: Kids had a blast out there. CLEAN!
General: Washer and dryer worked well. Nice iron/ironing board. Baby gear was plentiful, although previous guest(?) stored beach gear in pack-n-play and it was filled with sand. Had to clean that before we could use it. PLENTY of towels, bedding, pillows, hangers - you just had to look for them. They were there.
Service: Regina and Kevin were excellent to deal with. One question arose after arriving to house and concern was quickly and sufficiently addressed.
Bottom line: House was big, clean, up-to-date, and lanai was exceptional. Hated no doors on
