the staff at Villa Direct were priceless. The home was fine and met our expectation. The only issue we had was the light over the stairs was burned out a needed replacing. With a 4 year old in our party made this a concern. Read more

Thanks for your review of Horizon Skies following your stay in February 2011.
We're delighted that you had such a wonderful stay. We are sorry if the light in the stairs was burned out. Did you contact our office to ask us to replace this? We can see notes from your call where you advised of the handle on the upstairs closet, but no notes about the light bulb. Anyway - thanks for letting us know and we'll get someone on to it right away. We hope that you plan to come back again soon and we look forward to welcoming you when you return.

Convenient, clean and comfortable

We really enjoyed our stay. Our condo was conveniently located to where we visited. It was very clean and the kitchen was spotless. Unfortunately, it rained our last 2 days but we enjoyed staying inside, watching movies and reading on the comfortable accomodations. I would definitely recommend VillaDirect. I have used them the last several years and have found their service to be excellent. Read more

Thanks for your review of "Horizon Skies" vacation town home in Emerald Island, Kissimmee when you visited in March 2010.
We are delighted that you and your family enjoyed their stay at this vacation rental town home. We're sorry that the weather didn't live up to the usual Florida standards - but hope that didn't detract from an otherwise great vacation!
We hope that you are planning to return to the Disney area soon and look forward to welcoming you all back again.

The condo was dirty. The air conditioner did not cool the bedrooms. The TV in one of the bedrooms did not work. When reported to the management office no one came to fix the problems. Read more

Thank you for your review posted following your stay in March 2009.
We are sorry that you felt that the AC wasn't able to cool the bedrooms in the unit. It is a same that you didn't bring the matter to our attention (as the following guests did) as we were able to find a problem with the blower unit in the town home and repair it so that it worked fine for all guests.
As for the TV not working - we realize that you must have forgotten the discussion that our Guest Service team had with you when you called, explaining to you that there was no cable to the TV in the children’s twin bedroom and that it was solely provided for the use of the games console in the room. VillaDirect guest services team document all guest conversations and problems so that we can track our response to guests more accurately.
We guess that the 4-5 months since you stayed must have clouded your memory, which we understand. Maybe it's time to have another vacation in the Disney area to recharge your batteries?
