229 Bridgewater Dr.

November 9, 2015

We will never rent from them again or this location on Bridgewater Dr. The pool wasn't heated when we got there like it was supposed to be. There were no towels available like we told there would be. The dryer was broken. They finally brought us towels at 8:30 at night from Walmart that hadn't been washed yet. The house was so dirty we had to sweep when we got there. We hated to let our one year old crawl around because it was so dirty. The back patio furniture wasn't even useful. The bottoms of the chairs are all rusting off. After they finally got the pool working and heated it broke again. The management company at first didn't respond to anything very quickly. The tvs and remotes were all messed up and we had a hard time getting that stuff to work. It says its close to Disney which it is but it actually takes a good 30-40 min to get there because of the route you have to take and all the traffic. We've been back for over 2 weeks now and I can't get in touch with the owner about our experience and we still haven't received our deposit back or any type of compensation for all the headache and hassle we had when we stayed. Overall, terrible experience. Dirty and not taken care of property!!!!

Not very good experience

August 5, 2015

When I was on my way to Orlando, I received an email from the agent saying she had sent me the wrong information (different address). Then the house I checked in had (a) problem with the faucet in the kitchen sink, (b) the foosball table is missing (the maintenance guy told me that the foosball table was destroyed by guests 4 years ago), (c) one of the coffee table legs is loose (no screw at all), (d) most of the blinds are bad, (e) the light in the fridge is not working. (f) there are holes in the closet and door in one of the bed rooms, (g) headboards are not attached to bed, (h) dirty walls every where, (i) one of the smoke detectors has black tape around it. I did not test to see if any of them was working. In any case, I had to stay home the next day waiting for the maintenance to come over and fix the faucet, the coffee table, the fridge light. He measured the blinds but did nothing about them. I informed the agent, but had no direct response from her.

857 Highgate Park Blvd

June 30, 2015

We stayed at 857 Highgate Park Blvd in Davenport. The home in the pictures is the house we stayed in but the Game room Gas BBQ was not part of it and we had 5 bedrooms 4.5 baths. There were a few damages but I immediately bought it to the managers attention to be documented. The house is comfortable and everything went well. I was looking to be closer to Kissimmee but it was still ok. Near stores. Beds not comfortable but we dealt with it. I think its time to upgrade some of the mattresses. House keeper could do a better job at cleaning but it was not filthy. We would stay here again. Enjoyed the relaxation.

Family Vacation

April 16, 2015

Spent week with 2 families (10 people) in house. Nice accomodations, lots of space. Washer and dryer and full kitchen. Private pool and spa at house. Water was too warm for me, but the kids loved it. It was nice to have the pool right there and not have to go to far. Spa was about same temp as pool. Beds were squeaky and linens were slightly worn. Lots of towels provided but no toliet paper or dish soap. Game room in garage was a pool table. Community pool and club house were nice but a few block walk (sidewalks helped). Tiki bar was small and did not have many options. Community was gated. NO RV's, boats or trailers on property. Had to park in grass outside of community. Biggest downfall was distance to Disney, Universal and malls. May have been within 10 miles as the crow flies but when traveling on roads took 30-40 minutes and toll roads when traveling to these type of places. There was a Publix, liqour store, Walgreens and CVS within 5 minutes and a Walmart about 10-15 minutes away Owner was very helpful and always quick to respond

We resided in a townhouse in Kissimmee Florida, a part of Regal Oaks and the stay was remarkable. It was cozy but also big enough to accommodate my family. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Excellent séjour !

Très jolie maison, propreté impeccable. Il ne manque rien, tout est pensé pour le confort des invités. Nous avions des couvertures de rechange, beaucoup de serviettes, amplement de vaisselle et de fourniture de cuisine. Rapport qualité prix excellent. Nous avons eu un léger pépin avec le chauffage de la piscine qui a été réglé très rapidement et nous avons été dédommagé pour les inconvénients. Nous allons certainement faire affaire à nouveau avec Tropical Escape Vacation Homes. Merci

GREAT HOME WELL MAINTAINED AND DECORATED

July 31, 2014

Was apprehensive as always but everything was great. Pool nice and clean. Beds were comfy too. We got pool heat so we could use spa. Wouldn't have needed except wanted spa to get full temp. Home was comfy, had all you needed and was decorated very well. We enjoyed it a lot and if we go back to Orlando we know the firs place we will plan to stay is this house!!!! 5 star and I will just say I never give 5 stars and never write reviews but the extra attention paid to making this home a comfy rental is worth sharing.

Our 4th of July trip

July 9, 2014

Our trip was great because we made it great, the house we didn't like because all but two rooms had twin beds that were very uncomfortable. There were bugs in the house, and the refrigerator didn't work, it wasn't cold at all. We hated the house, it was also so far from all the tourist places.

Great for the money

June 30, 2014

The price was perfect for the 8 of us that stayed at the home. It was very roomy and plenty of beds. It was also a great location being very close to Disney. A few issues were that I requested a grill and paid extra and it was not there and waiting for my money back for that. The pool was great however it did need to be cleaned. It did not seem to be filtering properly and there was nothing there that we could have used to clean it a little. There were other minor things as well but we can't complain because we got a lot of use out of the home.

Beautiful home

April 24, 2014

I have a few minor complaints to tell future guest but overall the house is very beautiful and spacious. The area is very clean and tourist like. Now here are some of our complaints, The bathroom towels in master room smelled damp, mattresses were too soft and comforters material were cheap and uncomfortable. The sofa bed is unusable because is really bad. the pool launcher need cushions because is broken and pinch someone. The toilet on main floor had brown stain on it and so did the coffee machine. This are things we overlooked because everything else went smooth and we really enjoyed our stayed there but just thought to share.

highly disappointed

February 18, 2014

Overall house was complete as presented in your advertisement. However, some issues as follows: game room ... JOKE ... 1 pool table without working cues/ 1 dart board without darts; gas bbq ... 1 burner did not work and it took over 30 mins to cook 8 hamburgers; pool & spa ... we were not properly educated on the working aspect of this unit as a whole and had to have property management come out twice plus pool company and have them explain how it works... several chipped out holes in spa area ... no light to get in and out of steps ... pool satisfactory except old pool cover had been left in a pile just outside the door to the gazebo area which did not latch. Bathroom outside although a great option had no drainage in floor and becomes extremely slippery when used. Both lounge chairs, plastic had been split and was dangerous when sitting on them ... grandchildren got their thighs pinched more than once. This particular unit needs new cookware, pots & pans are severely pitted and rusty... not safe to be using these. Washing machine and dryer in particular were one of the worst machines we have ever experienced. Takes approximately 2 and 1/2 HOURS to dry a load of towels. Very frustrating. Bedding and beds were satisfactory and bathrooms were adequate. Overall, we made the best of the vacation as we were there as a family to see Disneyland & Universal Studios. By the way, these two sites are farther away than a 10 minute drive as your advertisement states. Would however probably look at using one of your homes again for a vacation in future. Thank you.

Not so lucky....

July 22, 2013

When we booked this home we were excited, however upon arrival we were very disappointed in this vacation home. Issue 1, prior to us arriving, I repeatedly called owner and sent emails to see when we would receive receipt of our rental funds & instructions on how to obtain keys to property (this was literally days before our arrival) Calls or emails weren't answered, I had to *67 the number and amazingly the owner picked up. Issue 2....When we arrived we had to clean debris out of the yard, plus the inside of the home (I immediately emailed owner, however we had to re-clean the home, no one ever came back to clean) I expected normal wear & tear but this was more, the carpet looked like the original carpet and was ripped in certain spots near the downstairs bedroom, (online pics showed carpet in living room, it was actually ceramic tile, which was cool) parts of the blinds were missing in bedroom facing the street & other rooms (privacy issue) head boards were not attached to the twin beds or the king size bed, leg on game table was broke (making it inoperable) pool was not cleaned (we cleaned it) however the maintenance people cleaned it the day before we were to leave. Issue 3...Batteries in fire alarm had to be replaced (alarm was chirping away), this was reported on day 1, on day 2 after 10pm maintenance showed up to replace batteries. Issue 4... One bedroom downstairs did not have cable (cable box) just a tv, high speed internet did not work, we had to use our "hot spot" , there was not a gas bbq grill, it was an old charcoal grill on the side of the house. Issue 5... we noticed ant baits in the home upon arrival, we had to go and purchase more "ant gel" because of the ants that were in the home. Location was nice but other than that the property itself needs an update, unfortunately we documented our stay with pictures and emails was sent to the owner daily about the complaints. I am sure that if this property were properly maintained it would be very desirable.

Generally nice but outdated

July 24, 2012

The gated community is very nice. It is a quiet neighbourhood that looks very nice. Although the property were we have been staying was generally nice at arrival it was not cleaned very well and it is somewhat outdated. Some of the items were broken (like chairs and lights), beds were not so good (crack) and even food was found behind one of the beds. Maintenance level is poor. Besides the minor points mentioned it is a nice property to spend the holiday. We have been staying with 8 adults and 1 child and for this number of people it offers enough space.

Spring Break 2012

April 16, 2012

First off, this home is not 10-15 minutes away from Disney, it is about 30 min away being the house is located in Davenport, FL. From the exterior the house looked nice. Once inside right away we saw it was is in need for a through cleaning, decorating and paint job. The high window ledges were gross and dirty. The mattresses were in VERY BAD SHAPE! They were really low to the floor and super thin. The pillows on every bed were about 1 inch think and the bedding in each room was awful, very old and worn! I immediately took all of them off for the week. The couch and love seat were so worn and dirty looking I did not allow my kids to lay their heads on either while lounging in the den area. There was an entire drawer missing in the kitchen under the sink. Who rents out a place like this? We paid to have the pool heated for the entire stay, which was 6 days and of the 6 days the pool and jacuzzi worked maybe 2 or 3 of the days we were there. This is after the maintenance person came and worked on the pool. Also when we arrived there were no towels or toiletry items. After looking for towels, we found the cleaning crew left them WET in the washing machine and a few dried towels in the dryer. The game room table upstairs was so dangerous because several of the rubber handles were off I didn't not allow the children to play with it all week. The pool table was very squeeky when leaning on while playing so we didn't use it that often while there for the week. When we arrivd the pool cover was left crinkled up and thrown in the middle of the pool. I am so glad there are so many fun activities to do in Florida, because we spent as little time as possible in this house. DO NOT spend your money on this property. We were in an awesome resort rental property in Kissimmee, FL in 2011 so we were very, very disappointed with this rental.

DISAPPOINTED

April 13, 2012

first let me start with the fact that the day before we were do to arrive we get an email that we could not have the house and what were we going to do well that was horrible and the owner was not very supportive the management compant did mange to find us one but it wasnt as big did not have all the ammenities and we poaid for a heated pool that we did not have so as far as owner goes would not recommend this home and as far management company I think they did a good job in such a short notice but I never recommend this home or owner

We had a wonderful experience.

December 29, 2011

We loved staying at the place. The only drawback was the pool/spa. We found out right before we arrived, and after we paid to have the pool heated (and thus the spa) that the spa wouldn't really heat to over 85 - and upon feeling the water, while it was heated a little, I don't think it ever reached 85. Other than that, it was a very nice stay. The bedrooms rooms were great, so was the kitchen and having 3 bathrooms was perfect. Also having a washer and dryer made it so we didn't have to pack so many clothes. The girls room could have used a dresser, but otherwise, it was wonderful and our girls loved it. We also loved being so close to Disney World, with easy access to grocery and other stores.

We had a wonderful time at our vacation home. It was good being so close to Disney. We had everything we needed in the lovely villa .Plenty of room for all of us. The pool was perfect for the kids , as well as the game room. Just like home. Any questions or possible problems, were quickly addressed by management. We will go through Vacation Home Rentals for our next trip also..

Okay for the money

November 4, 2010

The best part of this house is the location. It is very close to Disney and easy to get to. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and silverware. There were enough pans to cook a meal. Overall, it was clean and ready to go as scheduled. The washer and dryer did work. There were several problems with the house that need addressed. The pool lights, porch lights and fan don't work, so we swam in the dark. There were no washcloths, trash bags, dish washing soap, or extra toilet paper, of which we ran out. The vacuum cleaner did not work. There was no light in the refrigerator. There was no light in the entry way. The beds were very uncomfortable. Of the ten deck chairs, eight were broken. The couches were very uncomfortable, like sitting in giant holes. Two out of every three lights did not work inside the house. There was no front porch light which made it difficult to unlock the key box at night. If you want something cheap for the number of people it sleeps, then this is for you. Next time I'll pay a little more for a few extras, like toilet paper.

This home was perfect for an extended stay in Orlando. It is close to Disney, as well as restaurants and grocery stores. Having a heated pool to come home to after the long hot days at the parks was so nice. It was also in a quiet and relaxing neighborhood which was nice for vacation. I would definitely recommend this home for a vacation rental.

Convenient but in need of maintenance

April 12, 2010

The home was extremely convenient and spacious but it is definitely in need of some general maintenance. It could use a thorough cleaning of wall surfaces and carpets and some fresh paint. Not as nice as pictured online. We had issues with the pool most of our week's stay which was frustrating. If maintenance could be done it's a nice place to stay.

Hello, my family and my sister's family stayed at 310 Bridgewater for a week. Coming in from cold NewEngland we were really looking forward to a nice heated pool. The pool was unusable for 2 days. I called the company and they said they would re-inburse us for the days. There was no vacuum and the kitchen lacked large pots. There was also a pool talbe and we went out and bought new pool sticks for the talbe and left them. When we got the porperty the door was left un-locked and the code that was given to us was not what we were told. The size of the house was great, the location was a bit further than we had expected and traffic getting to and from Disney was a factor.

Quite Disappointing...

September 30, 2008

The villa itself was nice. We found the bedrooms to be extremely dusty especially on the ceiling fans and window ledges. The heated pool, which we paid extra for, was cold all week. The Hot Tub was not hot at all and when we called the managrment company they told us it was a Jacuzzi and that would not get hot. The Billiard Pool table was in the garage and the football table was no where to be found. The Game Cube did not have any controllers. There was no deck to be found and the patio was quite small.

Not as good as others say

August 22, 2008

We booked this home based on the reviews. However, after spending a week there, I do not understand how others could have given this house good reviews. The walls are paper thin (shoddy construction) and all marked up; carpets soiled and stained; very little in amenities (towels, dishes, etc.); grill was completely unusable until cleaned (which we did--if they charged the previous guests for leaving it dirty, they didn't spend the money to clean it); pool heat did not always work; location is good, but there is very little in the vicinity (must drive several miles); this is an average house in an average location.

Not like the pictures

August 13, 2008

We were very disappointed with the condition of the house. The pictures on the website are obviously dated. The following are things wrong with the rental: * the carpets are stained and dirty (not vacuumed) * the walls are scuffed and cracked * the chairs were broken * padding missing from under carpet * high speed internet did not work * only one pool stick * torn bedding * bulbs burnt out in outdoor front lights * ants holes in front porch * pool not cleaned while we were there (we were there 8 days) * phone out of order * maintenance staff unconcerned * no game for GameBox

Beautiful Home

The house was great for 12 people! The location was the best. It kept us out of the busy Kississmee area and left us close to all highway entrances for east and west Florida. Only suggestions are that more toilet paper and towels be provided and utensils and perhaps children friendly dishes (plastic).

deposit return problems

July 8, 2008

We rented a home for our family in Orlando area. Home had adequate space. Carpet was absolutely filthy. Paid extra to have pool heated - didn't get heat until mid-week. I was told they would refund partial payment for that. We never received the refund. Waited over 6 weeks to get deposit back. Apparently a lamp had been broken by a previous renter and they accused our family of breaking it. The lamp had a chip missing from the back of it. My husband saw it when we arrived but based on the condition of the home didn't give it much thought. Contacted Michelle numerous times regarding deposit and got no response for several weeks. Finally got refund after threatening legal action.

Nice space! We had 10 people and never felt like we couldn't get away from each other. Pool was great to have, although we happen to turn off the filter some how and it took the management company 3 days to response. We did contact the owner and Mrs. Helen imediately called the management company and then they responsed that same day. We did feel that the house could have been a little cleaner around the edges. We did have to pick up some washclothes too - there was not enough. Nice stroller, portable crib, and high chair available which we used. Foosball table and pool table definitely a plus as well! Nice neighborhood! Location was great to shops, Disney World, and great golf courses too. One suggestion would be to provide a contact to a church or salvation army to donate any extra groceries that vacationers have leftover, instead of throwing it out. We would most likely return to this same house again!

Very disappointing

June 23, 2008

This home was a disappointment. Home full of bugs and furniture very dirty. Stovetop, only two burners work. Pool cover thrown in corner, smells atrocius. No games for GameCube as advertised. Wished we rented a hotel room. Internet only occasionally worked.

Outstanding accomodations

April 28, 2008

What can I say about this experience but wow. Accomodations were great. It is truly a home away from home. Pool and hot tub was a great feature to have after very busy days within Florida. Very close to shopping and Disney and I will definitly book again when we plan our next trip.

Magic Kingdom Vacation

April 28, 2008

Our overall experience was great. Four generations of our family met in Florida for a mini reunion and vacation. It was great. The house is close to the major themeparks and was in a fantastic neighborhood with great grocery shopping nearby. The children especially loved the private pool, which created new bonding with both grandparents and great-grandparents. Communication with owner was also great. The house came furnished with everything we needed. Thanks again for a wonderful experience. Nancy Quinn

This home was a wonderful deal. It was beautiful, clean and very accomidating. Very close to Disney, and Sea World. Restaraunts and shopping plazas were right down the road. It was very child friendly, for my 1 year old and my 8 year old. We plan on booking it again in the future.

Review of property 5371

April 8, 2008

Overall, the experience was good, but there were several things I wish we had known. When we arrived, we had been given the wrong code for the house, so we had to get the proper code before we could even get in. That took a while. There was not a large trash can for outside, but the garbage man must not have minded the trash in bags at the street - they still picked up. The grill was not clean AT ALL, so we had to get stuff to clean it before using it. The pool was to be heated, but it never really heated up even after the gentleman checked it. The carpets were in really bad shape and it would have been nice to have known we needed to supply the bathroom tissue as well as other general supplies throughout the house. The beds in general were not comfortable. There was one cue stick without a tip. The spaciousness of the house was nice and the location was good for the Disney parks. In general, I wish there had been better communication about what to expect.

Highgate rental review

November 26, 2007

Overall the house was nice, the walls were a little scuffed and the carpet was dirty. The coffee pot kept blowing a fuse so we ended up haveing to purchase a new one. The pool was smaller than it looked on the internet. There could have been a few more towels in the house. We did enjoy our stay and had a wonderful time in the Orlando area. The gated community was very nice.

Boyd's take on the property

October 12, 2007

Our stay at this property was very nice. It is very convenient to the them parks and the kids got great use out of the pool. This is a very clean neighborhood and the property is very nice. It is very roomy and it also has different zones to hang out in just in case multi families use the property. The back patio with the pool is an extremely laid back area; very nice atmosphere. The property management was good to. The only problem we had is the gas grill wouldnt work. They sent someone out promptly and it was just an empty fuel cylinder. Only two suggestions I would make for improvement: 1. Leave detailed instructions on how to access the wireless interenet b/c I couldnt get it to work nor could I figure it out. 2. Clarify in lease agreement that if you dont pay the extra cash for the heated pool then the spa wont be heated either. Outside of that, great property that I would suggest to anyone. I will rent it again. Thanks.
