“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.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your wonderful review! It means the world to us! Frank & nadia

“Wonderful stay!!”

“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!”

Reviewed 21 Nov 2016

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!!

Owner's reply: Thank you again for staying with us! Frank & Nadia

Excellent vacation home, breath taking as soon as you open the door.Definately, will stay here in the future, also I would like to thank Jose and Wilma the neighbors for the heart warming welcome

“My home away from home”

Reviewed 18 Oct 2016

This home is enormous and had everything we needed. We were 4 adults and 3 young children. To me the best part was the pool and the beautiful open concept of the kitchen. It is hard to pick any specific part of the house. It was everything and more that we expected. Great value for the money. The main master bedroom was huge and the ensuite and walk in closet also. The outside area around the pool was very spacious. We will definitely look at booking this home again. We want to thank you for letting us rent your vacation home. Brandon and Chantal with the kids im sure will be back. Thank you so much from all us.. Karen, Bonnie, Brandon,Chantal and kids Ava.. Lex..Ali..

Owner's reply: Thank you again for staying with us Karen! It was a pleasure to have meet you too! See you soon! Frank & Nadia

“GREAT”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2016

The house was absolutely beautiful the pictures on the internet do not depict its actual size and comfort level. It gave us the warmth and comfort as if we were walking into our own home. The setup was unimaginable. The house was clean . The house was very well maintained and decorated. Everything that we needed and hoped for was there to be used. The house in general exceeded our expectations and we willl not have any trouble telling our friends and family about it. Thanks, Margret

“exellent”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2016

This house is beautiful and has everything you would need while on vacation and more. The owner is very easy to communicate with and the guy who takes care of things, Jose, lives next door and he and his wife are very very nice people. One of my biggest concerns as this was my first time renting a house instead of hotel for vacation was safety. The neighborhood seemed great while we were there, families were out walking and some kids were outside playing and it was very quiet and felt safe. There is also a fire station just down the street. The home it self is very well stocked with everything you could possibly need on vacation and is well decorated and comfortable. Lots of room and things to do while your there. Its also just a very short drive from all the attractions. All in all I was very satisfied with this home rental. The price of the rental is also very good in my opinion for the beatiful home you get to enjoy. i would have no problems staying here again or recommending it to any of my family or friends.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much Dominick for your super review! We are very happy that you and the family had a great time, we hope to see you back real soon! Frank & Nadia

Dear Frank and Nadia,
We did enjoy our stay in your home. Thank you.
We wanted to post a review to Vacation Home Rentals.
However, we could not do so unless we went through Face****, with which we do not have an account.
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.
