Poorly maintained home; interior of home had a distinct odour which was offensive to the nose and the pool had 1 light for the pool/patio area; walls of the pool was very slimy as if it had not been maintained or cleaned in some time. Patio chairs and tables were dirty with lots of debris and dirt in between the cushions. We sat on the chairs with towels. This property was in a very less desirable area and safety was a concern. There was a gaming room but this was in the garage where it was too hot to play. There were no pool tools. The beds had the thinnest mattress and very uncomfortable.
Would you recommend this vacation rental to a friend?

Advantage Vacation...thank you for your hospitality and your expertise on how to make a family's dream vacation one to remember. To all that are viewing my review, if you are thinking on whether to stay at a typical nice hotel or rent a home through advantage Vacation Homes, look closely at what advantage has to offer you and your family during your stay. First of all, let's start with the price. For the same price you would pay for a single room in a hotel, sharing a pool with other patrons you have your own private pool for your family to cool down at your leisure after a long busy day at the theme parks. This is also a way that you and your significant other can "escape" from your kids as well as others in your party to regroup for the next day. Instead of only having one room for all to share, you would have two, three, four or five bedrooms plus a full kitchen some dining rooms full baths as well as a washer dryer to fully clean your clothes before you leave for home. If you want to eat out, you can. If you want to save money and eat at the house by cooking your own bought food, you can. I can speak for hours on how much better advantage Vacation Homes is than staying at a hotel, but I strongly suggest you seriously look into advantage and see what they offer. Happy traveling!

The Service was excellent at check in. But the property needs to be updated a little. The main bathroom toilet was broken when we arrived. So we didn't use it. The beds in all the rooms squeaked, the linen needs to be replaced. The game room was nice, it had a pool table and a hockey table which was nice. It was a little far from the main attractions but it was near grocery stores, banks, and places to eat. In all we enjoyed our stay.
Lovely stay from the Uk
Left on 01/17/2013 for a stay in December 2012 | Vicky
We visited Orlando from the uk over Christmas and new year. We arrived and found the villa company and were given directions to the villa which is on a lovely community but it did take a while to find it once driving into thousand oaks the first time! The villa was spacious and well equipped with everything we needed to start our holiday. The bedrooms were good size with wardrobes and TVs. Beds were comfy and the villa was really clean we really liked it here even if it was a bit further away from Disney than we would like but the community made up for that we felt really safe at all times. It's close to a publix and cvs which came in handy. I have no complaints about the villa but think a few things need updating like the bathroom but this didn't spoil our stay.
it was average

The house could use some repairs and more maintenance, the a/c wasn't operating normal, but overall the experience was average. I been in better houses before.

An Enjoyable Stay

Overall my experience was very pleasant. House was clean when arrived and was in a very centralized location (couple minutes from route 4) which made it easy to get around. I will definitely rent again this same unit next year.

Best way to stay on vacation
Left on 09/21/2011 for a stay in September 2011 | Steve
We loved this place so much my wife wanted to buy it. The location was great, the neighbors were quiet and the house and pool rocked. This is the only way we want to vacation now. Come and go as you please, save money by buying groceries and cook at home instead of eating out all the time. Can't wait to go back. The only thing we didn't care for was the lack of a few necessities like extra garbage bags and toilet paper. We ran out the day before we left and had to go out and buy our own.

Nice stay but nightmare afterwards...
Left on 08/08/2011 for a stay in June 2011 | TH of Michigan
My family and I enjoyed the home while we visited family. It was everything that I wanted for the kids. They had lots to do since there was a pool and a game room. When we got home from our vaction stay I told all my friends and family about how wonderful it was to stay at a nice home. But once I got home a noticed a charge on my credit card for damages done to the property which we never did. The damage was there when we got there. Also we never had anyone walk through the house with us to look at everything to make sure nothing was damaged before we settled in for our stay. If you ever decide to rent a home from these people make sure you get a walk through with a agent and make sure you take photos that have the time and date on them.

The home was great and very clean. It was a pain to have to go out of our way to return the keys and then backtrack to the airport. The check in office is quite out of the way for this property. The staff were great to deal with. We were a little disappointed that we were so far from Disney but we now know to contact advantage to check the property address before we arrive and they will try and accomodate us.

Nice to have a place to our own
Left on 01/27/2011 for a stay in March 2010 | Pleased in Ottawa
The house was great. It had everything we needed and was super clean.
It was well located near stores for purchasing groceries but we felt it was quite away out from Kissimmee. It would have been good to know that prior to booking.
It was easy to pick up keys from the drop box but with our late arrival in Orlando it made it challenging to get to the office first thing in the morning especially as we were so far out. We had also asked for a pool heater prior to arriving but that didnt get addressed for several days. As it was cold it meant no swimming. We'd stay in a vacation home again as we like the indepedence but next time I'd need to know exactly where it was located before booking!
