Gemstone was responsive to requests for maintenance. This is a changing neighborhood but was quiet and convenient to shopping and restaurants. I believe the owner should replace some of the appliances that were installed by the builder some time ago! Dishwasher, stove and refrigerater should be updated.
Great house for a Disney trip!

We rented this house for a week trip to Disney World. The house had everything that we needed to be comfortable. There were plenty of dishes and glasses in the kitchen (which is rare). The kitchen and living room were spacious enough for the seven of us to eat and get ready without bumping into each other. The only slightly negative comment is that the coffee maker is extremely slow. But after we discovered this the first day, we planned accordingly.

This is the fourth time we have stayed with Gemstone and as usual, the trip was perfect. The house was clean and stocked with all the items we needed. The home was only about 10 minutes away from Disney World and very close to super markets and anything else we needed. One night during our stay, the air conditioner was not cooling properly. Gemstone sent out a repairman that day to fix it. Service is top notch! Ray and his staff are always helpful and friendly.

Wonderful house, filled with many amenities, spacious bedrooms, comfortable and very clean. felt like we were in a five star hotel, our family of five, including my 83 year old mother enjoyed the swimming pool and outside lanai. The kitchen was fully equipped that made lunch or dinner easy. Having a full size washer and dryer in the clean laundry room was a great benefit. Within an easy drive to Disney World and many restaurants and shops. Neighborhood was beautiful and clean. We will definitly stay here again, and recommend this home for everyone.
Not what I expected.

The house was comfortable. The pool was fun but needs a good cleaning. We also had ants all around the pool area. They did come and treat them after we reported them. The kitchen was good except for the refrigerator which had shelves broken. The garage was too small for my van and there was no remote garage door opener so we could not open the garage and pull in when it was raining, which is did most of the time we were there. The yard needed mowing when we arrived and didn't get mowed for several days after we were there. All of the waste baskets need to be replaced. The master bedrooms were great but the twin beds in the other two bedrooms were so hard that we had to purchase foam pads for them. The neighborhood was not the most desirable, lots of cars on the street and lawns were not well kept. Read more
Gemstone Properties takes all guest reviews to heart. We are always saddened when a guests stay does not meet their expectations. Unfortunately in this case some of the issues raised above are out of our control. We have managed this home for the last few years with no guest complaints regarding the neighborhood.
The weather specifically can cause a back up on the pool care as well as the lawn maintenance which was evident throughout the community during this guests stay. The home does have a standard 2 car garage which will accommodate most vehicles.
As indicated by the guests review we do take issues that are within our control seriously and will rectify the issue as soon as possible.
We have been in contact with the homeowner regarding the new wastebaskets which have already been purchased as well as the refrigerator shelves which are being repaired. They are also considering the complaint regarding the twin beds.

My sister and I had a relaxing 2 weeks in this lovely home.
This is the third time have stayed in a Gemstone house and have recommended them to several people . This house was clean,spacious, well taken care of, comfortable beds, great pool area , good security features.
We did not find a welcome package on arrival and discovered dryer full of towels after we had purchased more. Housecleaner dropped the ball . Pool is very narrow at the deep end so not a lot of swimming space for larger group. Would recommend more lounge chairs for pool area and also a fan in front bedroom. We could not find the security system panel before the alarm went off when we arrived as it is located in the laundry room in the center of the house. Would recommend location of security panel be included with alarm code information before arrival. Some of the white towels were very grey looking and need to be replaced.
However these are minor things and I would highly recommend this house. It is exactly as pictured. Very comfortable, good location for parks, great screened pool area, quiet subdivision and close to shopping. I have found Gemstone good to deal with and Mary is great. They allowed us to print off our boarding passes at the office as there is not a computer at this house. Three trips and Gemstone has not disappointed yet.
We had a great time!!

the house was perfect for what we needed. And the help we received when we locked ourselves out at 10:00 pm was great!
Would never rent this house again.

The location of the home is excellent if you are planning to visit Disney. The house was also decorated nicely.
If would be more comfortable to sleep on the concrete patio, than sleep in both the master bedrooms. The mattresses are extremely uncomfortable.
In both master baths, the shower heads were clogged and did not get fixed. Eventually, we used the scrubby side of the sponge and got the holes unclogged, but were at least 50% clogged for 7 of the days of our trip. (9 days total)
When we are going to disney and walking around in the heat for 9 days, there are only 2 things that are important to us - to be able to shower off all the grime of the parks and to get a good nights rest to recooperate for the upcoming day. We were unable to do this, thus ruining our trip. The other couple we came with left a day earlier than planned because of the heat (not houses fault) and the bedding scenario.
While the house was clean in appearance, the caulking around the bathtubs are in desperate need of replacement - just a maintenance issue that may be overlooked when the house is cleaned.
We never noticed when looking at the photos, that the bathrooms have the soaker tubs, and how difficult it is to climb in and out to shower. The tubs are very slippery getting in and out, and a non-slip mat would be appreciated.
Sadly, out of all the houses we have stayed at through Gemstone, we can never in good faith recommend this one... But would recommend Gemstone as a rental company in a heartbeat.
First off we are deeply saddened that the Hennebergs had such a bad stay. As one can see, however, from the other reviews, no one has every made a complaint about the showers or the beds in the past. In addition, the property owners had just left the home prior to this reservation and did not find fault with either. When it comes to items like this, it is simply difficult to please all comers. The shower heads were personally checked by the owner of Gemstone and both heads were found to be in working order. While I am sure there were hard water deposits blocking holes in the heads, I doubt that there is a shower head in Kissimmee that does not have some blockage. We do regret not addressing the shower head complaint differently because it was so impactfull on this guest but we constantly have to balance the requests of our guests with the fiscal responsibility we owe the owners of the properties we manage. We are so sorry to the Hennebergs and can’t wait to make it up to them!

Our trip couldn't have been better. We loved the house had plenty of room for the 5 of us. Every one had their own room but shared a bath by choice. Location was excellent near Disney & shopping couldn't have been better.
