First I have to say that when I first opened the door to the Villa I was blown away. It was so much bigger and better then I thought it would be. You do have to do a check list which I think is great because it covers everyones butt. I like making sure everything is there and if there is something missing you get it asap. We were missing a towel set and when I went down to the office they brought one right up. The lay out was fabulous and although there was only one TV set it was wonderful that way. When you are on vacation you don't go to watch TV anyway. We were about 15 minutes from each of the parks (Disney and Universal). Honestly it was the best vacation we have had. This was our first experience with a villa and I can honestly say that we will be booking them again next year. « less

We always spend vacations in a hotel room and, when I saw a 3Bedroom/2Bath on the internet for about the same as we would spend for one moderately priced hotel room, I booked it but reluctantly because it seemed to good to be true and we know hhow that goes. Three days before we were scheduled to depart, I got a phone call from the resort and thought to myself, here it comes - it is too good to be true. However, I was pleasantly suprised when they said they were calling to see if we needed directions to find the resort, gave me the gate code and wished us a safe journey.
After 8 hours in the van we were weary when we arrived, so it was very rewarding that they were waiting for us and greeted us with a warm welcome. I must say the villa was huge and the open floorplan was great as the kitchen opens out into the family room. Overall, it has changed the way I will attempt to vacation again because it was so much better for a family than a hotel room. It's a small resort, so the staff were very accommodating and courteous.

I always stay in a budget motel. We are not in the room much, so why pay extra money. When I saw the advertisement for $49.00 a night I flipped. I was paying that for a cheesy closet room. Here I was getting a 1700 square ft house. Can't beat that. I felt it had to be better than a 1 room motel. When I arrived I was very impressed. Service desk was polite. We were escorted to the room. There was a checklist that we had to go over of all suppllies and furnishing that were in the villa. Everything was there. The villa had 3 bedrooms, big kitchen, living room, sky light, so there was plenty of light coming in. Did I mention the master bedroom bathroom. It was to die for. The bathroom had what seemed to be a mini swimming pool and there was also a stall shower. There was also a smaller bathroom between the other 2 bedrooms. There was a 25 inch TV with cable. If you want another TV in the bedroom, request it. There should be no problem getting it. There is a laundry room next to the office. Its opened 24 hours. It has 2 washers and 2 dryers and its totally free, but bring your own detergent. We actually stayed in for 2 days and relaxed. Never did that before. We felt so at home. I wish I had this house back home. I will definitely check this place out again when I return to Florida in the next several months. Hope I can get the same deal again. « less

Before we could swim in the pool on the first night I had to clean it because of the large number of insects (ants etc.) floating around. We also noticed a couple of ants on the dresser but did not think anything of it (just ants right!). Should have suspected something then. The first morning I woke up to find my 7 month old baby covered in fire ants. She was sucking her thumb trying to comfort herself while ants were crawling all over her face, head, neck and arms. See photos. (I did not include a picture of her face on the internet for obvious reasons). Her eye was swollen shut, & she even had bites on her lips. The week was miserable because once those bites burst they cause an itching/burning feeling (thus the name fire ants). I approached a staff member immediately (visibly upset) & she advised me that this had never happened before, (check out some other reviews). She seemed irritated that she now had to find us another villa. The whole day was wasted repacking & moving to the other villa. We had to shake out all of our clothing & luggage as our suitcases were infested. Just talking to a nurse took a couple of hours. We were advised that we would get that night for free and a tour of the resort (wow), instead my visa shows me that they charged me for 2 extra nights I did not stay (charged to my visa without my signature/authorization). In the second villa they turned off the a/c on us one day - remember it is summer in Florida. We had to get our key cards reactivated several times as they would not work. That was our week - not too fun & now my daughter has pot mark scars on her face and arms. What bothers me the most is that the staff that we dealt with did not seem to really care. Please think twice before attending as I know that even the company that we booked it through no longer deals with this resort due to the large amount of complaints etc. Best of luck!!! « less

Don't let the negative reviews fool you!! These people just want to complain! Let's get a few facts in line first!! I was there at the same time as the Aug. 18th review and can assure you the pool was not milky cloudy AT ALL! Over a days' use and peope using it, the pool might look a little in need of chlorine (i.e suntan lotion, oil and sweat will do this to a pool). However, this was remedied every day and the pool was very clean and clear.
The units are definitely clean! They wouldn't even allow us to check in until they knew positively that our unit was clean and even then we were able to double check it. Towels are actually folded and fanned, hanging on the wall in decorative style like you might see in an upscale hotel. Very cute!! Not to mention by the second day, they delivered clean fresh towels and we didn't even request it since we were in a unit that did not have a washer & dryer! If you have your own washer & dryer in your unit, expect to wash your own towels. This is not an "all-inclusive" resort, it is however a home away from home. You can cook your own food in your own unit and wash clothes in your own unit if necessary without having to spend a ton of money eating out (which you will do in Orlando, FL even at McDonald's) or washing clothes. If you're looking to have people fall all over you doing things for you stay at the Hilton Hotel and pay $300/night!
As for the "check off" list, yes it is a little lengthy. This is a sheet that you should be filling out upon your arrival & check-in. This is an "accountability" sheet of items located in your unit. You just have to take a few minutes, go through each room and check off the items on the sheet that ARE NOT there. This is for your own security. Each unit should have these items complete and if they are not there, this benefits you so the resort owners know exactly what is not in the unit when you arrived, therefore you are not charged for something when you leave that is missing.
As for the "roaches" a couple reviews refer to...lol...these are not the roaches you are thinking about. These are Florida's notorious "palmetto bugs". These bugs are EVERYWHERE this time of year in FL. You may see one or two of these inside and out of this resort and every other resort in FL no matter how upscale the resort is!
Overall, we were there for 4 days and had an absolutely wonderful time! And met a great woman and her young son that we became friends with! The units are clean, property is quaint and quiet, so much room in each villa it's almost sinful! We had unit 1029 which is a five bedroom. The unit was kept at a constant 75 degrees. During the day it would get a little warm because of the large sky-lights in the upstairs ceiling...at night it was perfect!
My only complaint?? We had 8 of us in the villa (6 of whom were teenagers) and only 1 27"TV. In a 5 bedroom villa. who does this??? LOL! « less
