Perfect location with groceries, shopping, golf and Disney minutes away.
Like alot of people, we were a little nervous renting from an "on-line" site. This was not the case with this rental. What you see on the website is what the property is. Well maintained, clean and ready to go. We were looking for a relaxing worry-free vacation and we definitely achieved that. Publix and Walmart Super Center are literally a 5 minute drive away on Route 192. My husband had no problem finding lots of golf courses handy. We could drop him off and take in some shopping and not having to get on major highways was a bonus for me. Ample linens and kitchen utensils. I think the most under rated aspect of the house is the west facing pool and deck area. It was perfect for swimming or just vegging on a floatie. Ample lounge chairs as well as umbrella table for those who prefer shade. Having the on-site washer and dryer as well as BBQ were just more bonuses to this house. I would definitely stay here again and am already looking forward to planning next year's vacation.
We just left and we’re so sad to do so. This house has everything you require for one or two families. It was clean and had plenty of room for us. Complete package and close to everything. Only suggestion is to leave a few cooking spice staples,ie. salt and pepper or oil. You will need to supply all food staples for your stay. Not a big deal. Also the hot tub temp setting is too hot at 104. Need a thermometer in there to confirm temp. It kept going up to 106 on the gauge. We figured it out. Just be careful with small children. Thanks for a great stay. Would definitely repeat.
Great property to stay in when your in Orlando
We stayed in this Villa for 2 weeks (2 Adults & 2 Kids), we absolutely loved it, large bedrooms & beds.
Great pool & hot tub.
Good location for all parks (15 to 25 mins depending which park).
Plenty of restaurants a short drive or taxi away.
Old Town & Celebration 10 minutes drive.
Note: This is not a gated community & your next door neighbours live here.
We thought this was great as they all had the Halloween decorations out.
Overall a great Villa for up to 8 people.
Great home, great price, great Disney hotel alternative!
My family had a wonderful time staying at Rick’s house for our Disney vacation. The house is located 30 – 40 minutes from the airport and a mere 18 – 25 minutes from each of the Disney parks. If you are renting a car then select “no tolls” on your mapping app and go from the airport to the house and all of the Disney properties without the need to rent a transponder. Bring a handful of quarters with you to be safe if you are going beyond the parks.
Though the house is bright, if you travel with young children or elderly adults, you may want to consider bringing a nightlight for the bathroom for those guests who use the queen or twin bedroom since their bathroom is located outside their bedroom and the hall is dark at night. If you like your bedroom really dark you may consider a sleep mask for the 1st floor bedroom. I didn’t find the first floor bedroom too bright (lots of windows) but I did use my sleep mask since I travel for work and have one in my bag. All the TVs and their associated remotes are the same brand which makes them very easy to operate no matter which room you are staying in. The WiFi worked fine (5-6 personal devices connected). The thermostat is easy to understand and regulate.
Rick is responsive and his process for checking in is a breeze. There is a lockbox on the door and Rick provides you with the code prior to arrival. When checking out all you need to do is lock the door, return the key to the lockbox and leave. My security deposit was refunded in full one week after my departure.
One thing I think people should understand is that the house is not in a gated, resort community and it appears as though some of the neighbors are full time residents. That may be why one reviewer heard a dog. I did see people walking dogs and we heard one bark on two occasions but never all during the night or for any prolonged period of time. For Florida standards, the backyard is quite private and the pool is great.
If you were to book a Disney hotel with the types of amenities this house comes with, it would easily cost you 2-3 times more. Rick’s house provides more bathrooms, a great kitchen, more TVs for the kids, a private yard and pool, a nice pool table and easy access to all the parks with convenient grocery shopping. I was nervous renting a house online and relied on the reviews of others to do so. I hope my review helps you become comfortable with your decision to rent Rick’s and have a wonderful vacation in FL.
Let me begin by saying that Rick has a lovely vacation home. The house is spacious and well-supplied, except for a lack of teaspoons. We found it very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The price was reasonable and my security deposit was returned very promptly. I would love to give it a 5-star rating but I am afraid that is reserved for perfection, and our stay at Rick’s was not perfect.
For one thing we were not warned that there is a landing about two steps after you enter the house with a drop of about six inches. I was the first to enter, did not see the drop and fell on my face, hitting my head on one of the heavy iron chairs at the dining room table located close to the entrance. Fortunately, I think I suffered only a minor concussion, a bloody ear and slight bruise to my abdominal wall. I think some warning, or perhaps something to indicate the edge of the landing, would be most helpful.
We were also not told that we were expected to remove and replace the pool cover every time we used the pool. Not a big deal, but the listing says the home is “suitable for the elderly and infirm.” We are not infirm, but we are all in our seventies and removing and replacing the pool cover was a pain.
There were no instructions about operating the TV so turning it off and on and changing the channels was always an adventure. Add to this the fact that there was no DVD player, and we brought along some old movies we hoped to watch. But in fairness there was no mention of a DVD player in the listing.
Although it’s not a house-related point, there was a dog in the neighborhood that was constantly barking – sometimes all day and all night. It’s certainly not your fault and a doubt there is anything you can do about it, but it was a major annoyance.
All this lessened our enjoyment of this otherwise lovely home.
I look forward to any constructive criticism of my home to enable me to make any improvements that are necessary to make your stay as safe and relaxing as possible. As a result of your feedback it is my intention to improve the following:
• A warning of the landing will be included in the instructions that I send out to all future guests prior to their arrival.
• Instructions on how to use the television will be included in the information book.
• I think putting a DVD player in the home is an excellent idea. I will also add 1 Netflix account.
• The lack of teaspoons will be addressed.
• The pool is supplied with a pool roller and cover. It states in the information book that it is advisable that when the pool is not in use it is put on to help keep the water warmer during the winter months, however, it's not essential.
• The home is located in a very friendly residential neighborhood. I have had no feedback from previous guests informing me about a dog barking, however, I will certainly monitor the situation.
Once again, thank you for your very constructive review.
It was everything we hoped it would be!
Well, what can I say - this Villa had everything and more.
Lets start with us, we are British and have been to Kissimmee 5 previous times, each time in a Villa but all owned by Brits - this was the first one we have rented direct from an owner in the states so a little nervous...
We shouldn't have been, Rick was there at every step and made everything easy.
Firstly the location - this was ideal for us, just off the 192 (the main street in Kissimmee with all the restaurants) it took about 5 mins to get to Walmart/Target in the car and if we went out in a taxi it was around $15 dollars to the restaurant. With no traffic we were at Epcot in about 11 mins from leaving the villa.
Next the Villa itself, very clean and comfortable with 4 bedrooms but the main 2 were very big and the same shape and size with a walk in shower, walk in wardrobe, huge TV, cable, Bathtub, the ground floor opened onto the pool area and the upstairs one opened onto the American pool table - beds were huge (much bigger than ours) and so comfy.
There`s a house phone there you can ring taxis and takeaways on and there`s also pool towels available which saves you having to bring your own.
The internet (having 2 children it`s a must) is supafast and we could all stream on it at the same time without any problems, there was a huge washing machine, dryer, air con, TV and cable in every room including the American pool table area.
On a separate note, the American pool table is on the landing next to the upstairs main bedroom and its a full size table - when we have stayed in other villas the "games room" tends to be in the garage which isn't covered by the air con so it`s gets too hot to go in there - this wasn't the case and we had family games of Killer etc most nights.
The pool was the best pool we`ve had as it had a proper deep end and a light which meant my children could stay in the pool when it got dark till very late - there was a full size 6 seater Hot tub there also which was great for the adults as we relaxed, had a beer and watched the kids in the pool - there was an large outdoor bbq there as well (gas) but we never used it - restaurants or takeaways for us...
Finally we all agreed that this was the best Villa we have stayed in out of all 6 and we will definitely be going back to this one next time we go - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone - the best bits were - cleanliness, location, internet, pool area, hot tub, pool table and comfort.
