  • Not what I expected


    The house was clean

    Pool had at least 300 pounds of leaves in it that had been there for a while. Took us over 3 hours to clean. They sank to the bottom of the pool, they had been there for a while.

    Washer and dryer. Dryer did not work

    Only a few garbage bags

    4 rollers of toilet paper

    Not enough paper towels

    Outside furniture was bent or broken

    No amenities like foil or wrap

    Kind of a rough neighborhood

    The cleaning service was very responsive but at the mercy of the owners.

    We would never stay there again.

  • Its OK.


    The pool doesn't have a heater. I wish it emphasized that in the listing. The pool was dirty when we arrived. There was a storm before we arrived. They did send someone to vacuum the pool. That was cool, but the pool still appeared dirty. Not sure if it was staining on the bottom and sides or just a poor job cleaning. The drawer where the trashcan was located was broken. So we just pulled the trashcan out for the week to prevent any further damage opening and closing the cupboard door. The front and rear yard were unkept. Tall grass and broken tree limbs everywhere. Again there was a storm before we arrived. The clothes dryer only worked the 1st time we used it, which was our 2nd or 3rd day staying. The management couldn't get anyone there to repair the dryer before we left for the week. Other than that the house was spacious and clean upon arrival. We usually stay in Kissimmee each year. You get a lot more bang for your buck for housing up there over Tampa. Would I stay again if required to be in Tampa? Yes. However I will probably next time commute the hour each way from Kissimmee or Davenport where housing is cheaper for better.
