“Promised but not Delivered”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2019

Based on all the previous reviews we were expecting to be wowed with this property however it was a huge disappointment in every way. The home has the potential to be a fabulous home away from home but there needs a lot of attention paid to the little details before that happens. There is NO cable television or telephone service in the home with Netflix your only option. Several of the remotes for the tvs or blue ray did not work as the batteries needed replacement and a HDMI cord to connect the blue ray to the tv. Linens for everyday use were in small supply or non existent. The overall cleanliness of the entire home left much to be desired. We had to visit a Laundromat during the last four days of our stay as the washer was outdated and finally gave out.The dishwasher is in poor repair. I could go on and on but hope you get the understanding of my message. There are 100's of properties to choose from when looking for a vacation home and I would suggest you continue your search. The Owner, Frank, was less than cooperative and lacked any genuine concern/

Owner's reply: Hi Donald and Barbra, We’re really sorry to hear that the home wasn’t to your standards, I too use Airbnb and other platforms when I vacation, we alll have our different standards, unfortunately this didn’t work out for you. Our reliable Matag finally died, yes it happens, it worked fine for close to 20 years, we got a new one in 72 hours which was the earliest Best Buy could come, for the cleaning we did bring this to to our managers attention, unfortunately if I could I would go more often to have the place tip top. Again I’m truly sorry that the washing machine broke down, the TV set up are as stated with fire stick but from the feedback the last couple of rentals I will be rectified soon. It’s crazy that the last 2 guests weren’t happy, we thought we were doing a good job till now but looks like we have to do much better. My wife and I are flying in next week to clean and go over all the details. We hope you consider us in the future, I promise I will make it perfect or it will be free. Till then, we wish you a wonderful summer. Frank & Nadia

“A wonderful home from home”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2018

We stayed here for 16 nights in October 2018 as a family of 5 and had a fantastic time. The villa is very spacious and was like a home from home. The pool and spa are great with a nice seating area for outdoor dining and the area is quiet so no problems getting peace and quiet to sit outside. Inside there are 3 separate sitting areas (2 down and 1 upstairs) so plenty of space to stretch out, especially if you have teenagers! Jose, who looks after the villa for the owner, lives next door and so is on hand should you have any issues but that said the owner, Frank, responds very quickly to any emails making the stay stress free. Would highly recommend this property to all as it has everything.

Owner's reply: Thank you Darren and Elaine for your wonderful and kind review!! It means the world to Nadia & I! Happy holidays! Frank & Nadia

“Lovely Home”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2018

This home is exceptional. We were traveling with 2 families(total of 8 people) and there was an ample amount of space. The kids enjoyed the pool and we also loved the grill and pool side meals we prepared. This home is also very close to the parks so it was quite convenient. The owners were very quick in responding to any questions and concerns. We will definitely be booking this home in the future!!!

Owner's reply: Thank you thank you thank you! We really appreciate the review as it means the world to us! We look forward to having you all back soon! Frank & Nadia

“Amazing Full Month Vacation!!”

Reviewed 16 Nov 2017

This is the second time we (My husband and I, our 3 children along with grandparents) stay in your beautiful home in Florida! We have decided to stay a full month this year and it was totally worth it. As you walk into this beautiful and spacious house, you get this lovely fresh, clean smell as you walk through the door. The house was very clean and tidy just like we remembered last October 2016. Jose and his wife take really good care of it and are always so helpful. (Thanks guys) The house has all you need to get started (minus your food,etc). The kids always get excited with the Minnie Mouse and Mickey Mouse beds even though that's their bedroom set at home too. They have a little bit of toys for the kids to get started. (You don't need much in Florida with the pool and all the activities.) The pool and hot tub are excellent; we spent a lot of our time in there with the children. They also have a BBQ which is great. The house feels vert cozy and comfortable. It totally felt like my own house. (I wish it was haha) The house is located 10-15 minutes away from pretty much everything you need. (Walmart, Restaurants, Groceries Store, Gas Bar, Pharmacy, Disney, etc) Having the house for the month gave us plenty of time to experience what Orlando and the surroundings had to offer. We would totally rent your house again in the future. We had such a great relaxing and exciting vacation. Thank you so much for everything Frank and Nadia!! P.S. This year we experienced 5 big crane birds walk right up to the house in the front lawn. The kids got a big kick out of that. Oh... I can't forget those cute little lizards. One was very friendly and walked right on our hands. So exciting with the kids!! Until next time, Brandon and Chantal Faulkner

Owner's reply: Thank you Brandon & Chantal for staying with us and for your kind review! It mean the world to us, we look forward to having you all come back! Frank & Nadia

“Great family vacation”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2017

We had a perfect stay! Fun clean house, loved the divisions and the pool was awsome for the kids! It was also nice to go "home" after a day ar Disney instead of a small two double room in a resort. We would do it again.

Owner's reply: Merci Francois! Thank you again for coming and stay with us! We look forward to having you back! Frank & Nadia

“Everything you need in a Home Away from Home!”

Reviewed 4 Jun 2017

Saying this home is spotless does not do it justice! When we opened the door, it was just amazing. This house is huge! Everything is beautifully decorated and in its place. We had plenty of room to spread out considering there are 3 living rooms. My family loved it. Everything was ready for us when we arrived. The house was stocked with almost everything we needed, which was a plus. It was a pleasure communicating with the owner Frank. He responded immediately to any messages I sent him. The property manager Jose lives next door and was very polite and courteous. We were so very impressed with this home, and will definitely be back in the future.

“Exceded already high expectations”

Reviewed 14 Dec 2016

I had booked this property a year in advance for our trip last week. To say that my family had been excited is a huge understatement. We had browsed the 100 pictures provided of the property and decided fairly easy that this was the place for our early Christmas vacation. From the start, Frank was extremely easy to work with, very accomodating and reassuring with any requests or concerns we had. Upon arrival, we were blown away with the size, cleanliness and overall quality of the property. The house was even decorated for Christmas which was a much appreciated touch.I have stayed at many vacation homes in the Orlando area over the past 20 years. I have rented from larger companies and dealt personally with owners as I did this time around. My family agrees that this is by far the nicest property we have stayed in. It was deffinetely a high point of an already stellar vacation. The thing that impressed me most however, and the main reason I will choose this property again when we return is how easy to deal with and accomodating Frank (the owner) is. Little touches like having the house decorated for Christmas show that this is a person that genuinely cares and wants to insure that your family has a great vacation. Lets be honest there is alot of choice in central florida when it comes to renting a vacation home. Its refreshing to deal with an owner that understands that and is appreciative that you chose his property.

Owner's reply: Dear Matt, Thank you for choosing us among the 5000+ homes available, and thank you for your kind words, we do take great pride in making everyone feel like its home away from home. We look forward to seeing you back soon, till then warmest holiday wishes and a happy New Years! Frank & Nadia Germilli

“Family trip!”

When we arrived the house was spotless, It is so roomy and open we had a total of seven people with us. Everyone had their own space. The pool was beautiful and the hot tub we used it every night after we got home from Disney! It was a very cozy yet large home! Very convienant to stores and Disney!! We will definitely be staying there again!!

As I could not find any other way to leave the review, I have included our review for you to post if you want to use it.
Thank you and kind regards,

Excellent Home!!

This rental home was just as described!
It is excellent value for the price they ask! We have a large family (7) and everyone felt comfortable with the 4 large bedrooms and a sitting area upstairs and 2 large living areas downstairs.
There is PLENTY of room to spread out and yet places to cozy up and share a movie or good book.
The kitchen is excellent! It was well appointed and great to be able to cook in such a well set-up, provided area. Unlike many rental places in Orlando, the kitchen actually has enough appliances/cutlery/pots&pans to cook a normal meal :)
Our 3 bravest used the heated pool and enjoyed it! (January with high 40?s / low 50?s)
This home is very conveniently located, as the owners said. There are shops for grocery and house goods.
There is a great community park for sports or walking just a couple of miles N on US27.
State park Lake Louisa is only 10-15 miles N on US 27 and had some great walks (in winter, anyway!) Discovering orange trees growing in the wild was a highlight!
On the warmest day we went to Fort DeSoto just past St. Petersburg. It was a nice day trip and nice to come ?home? in the evening to this house.
As regards to communication, the owners answered emails/phone calls immediately and we were able to book last minute with less than a week to go.

If you want a place in Orlando that is excellent value, family/many-people friendly, well set-up, well catered, and has friendly, helpful owners, this is the place!!
Thank you, Frank and Nadia, for sharing your place.
