Good, not great
March 13, 2013
My stay included 6 adults and 3 children. More then enough rooms to keep all of us seperate and private from one another. We stayed from March 3rd to March 11th. Included when I rented the property was the BBQ, heated pool, hot tub and cleaning fee.
The house was clean and had nearly everything we needed for day to day living (only a few utensils missing, but that is just me being picky). The house is about a 15min drive to Disney which is fine and very close to grocery stores, restaurants, and everything needed. The house is in a gated neighbourhood but I was not able to locate a park in the area for the kids to play in...could be just I did not find it.
Now, to the negatives. The hot tub was broken and as it was old, they were not able to fix it. The heated pool was not working the first few days and we were not able to swim until day 4 of our trip. The owner did refund us money for these issues but still sucks that we did not have the hot tub at all and did not have the pool for a few days.
The caregiver blamed the lack of heat in the pool to the cold weather (it was very cold) but later learned that there was a gas leak.
Aside from the pool and the hot tub, apparently the alarm was not working and the PS2 was broken too. Minor issues but issues none the less.
The only other issue was that the living room was quite small and only had seating for 5 people. This was an issue due to the cold weather and us having to spend time inside. Just something to note for anyone staying here.
The caregiver was OK to deal with but would not believe the pool heater was broken and tried to offer an unfair refund afterwards. The owner is much better to deal with and was fair to me with a decent refund we both agreed on.
Overall, the house was everything you needed to live from day to day but nothing extravegant. There were issues while staying there, most were rectified via a refund but still sucked as it did impact our trip.
*** I would actually rate this house at a 3.5 star but that was not an option***
