We stayed in the home from March 1/14 to Mar 29/14. With a few exceptions, the home exceeded our expectations:
1. The bed linens are "tired" and should be replaced with better quality.
2. The electric grille should not be described as a barbecue. Steaks cooked on an electric grille are not the same as when cooked on a barbecue, whether gas, propane or charcoal. When we arrived the grille was filthy. I will clean it before we leave tomorrow.
3. We were disappointed that there were no bicycles. We had looked at a lot of homes online and many had bicycles.
4. How often are the bedspreads cleaned? They need to be.
5. We had difficulty wirelessly connecting our internet devices. With 3 couples in the last 2 weeks we had 2 computers, 2 ipads and 4 iphones. All of them could not be connected to the wireless network at the same time.

Florida vacation 2011
Left on 09/17/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | Adolmalura Germany
We found Danforth Lakes a good location to begin our Florida vacation after a long haul flight. The house that we stayed in was very comfortable, clean, quiet and the pool and patio area well tended and enjoyable, especially for our kids. Genuinely relaxing for us all.
The lake view from the patio was pleasing without any intrusivness from other houses.
Although Highway 75 and Daniels Expressway are quite close and Fort Myers airport just 20 minutes away you have good travel connections, but surprisingly absolutely no noise, day or night. The house was spacious and had all necessary appliances just as you would at home. The kitchen even had washing up liquid,tabs,some dried condiments and teas. The wash room washing powder and softners. The main bathroom also had a large walk in type shower. The local area had a wide selection of restaurants, shops and supermarkets. Not being used to air conditioning, we often found it a shock from being outside to entering a restaurant or shop where the temperature difference could be around 25 deg F lower. We tended to take sweat shirts with. The Gulf coast beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel Island are between 20 and 30 minutes away. Fine sand and pleasantly warm water.
This area where we stayed is not a hub for amusement parks or similar attractions. We chose it to acclimatise and relax before moving on to our final destination in Orlando. It certainly set the tone for the vacation and was a benchmark for our stay in Florida (and our budget!). If what we had is the standard of what Universal Vacactions offers, then I would recommend it to others.
