We enjoyed our stay it was awesome. I loved the location, it was just the right distance from everywhere we were going. The parks were so crowded it was nice to be able to get away from everyone and go back to our rental house to re-energize.
Cleveland area, Ohio
Convenient location with lots of potential after some upgrades.

My family and I did enjoy our stay at this home. It was convenient to the area attractions. And also as a family we had access to the local grocery and gas staion just arround the corner. That was handy! Who wants to drive a long way to a grocery after spending all day in the parks? The home offered spacious bedrooms and a place for all of our family of 5. However, I could see that the home could use some updates in the cosmetic side. Some of the furniture showed some wear and tear. And the search for towels for all of us between pool and shower was a bit tedious. Our biggest complaint overall was the pool. We own a pool at home and are familiar with lots of details. But I would say that the pool was not clean - by my standards. There was lots of sand and pollen/ plant material on the bottom and decking. The filter basket had previous renter's toys and gunk in it! Yuck. And the manual spa heat and jets located outside the screened area on the side of the house was hard to find to say the least. Directions should have been verbally given at check in; posted on patio area; Or spelled out very clearly in pool instructions. It tool us two days before we got the instruction needed to get the thing going! Really not what we paid for with the extra money for pool heat and use. So the controls need to be made better for people coming in like us. That was our biggest complaint. The cosmetic things are just a suggestion. The pool is really an issue though and needs to be addressed.
a little disappointed

This home showed nicely. The cuteness you see in the picture is what was there. It was also nice having a washer/dryer at our convenience.
We had negative opinions about several factors in the home.
One issue was with the beds. We considered the bed mattresses in the secondary rooms to be substandard. The master suite mattress was different and fine. When we spoke to Lance, his response was that our opinion of the mattresses was a "matter of our personal preference".
The game room was a semi-converted garage. The water heater was visible, the room was cold, and the sound from the TV reverberated off the painted concrete walls. Was the room enjoyed by the kids? -yes. I guess when you rent a house unseen, you a have a certain expectation for what a "room" is. When you see that the "room" is a garage and that its "conversion" isn't really complete, it was disappointing. For kids, that stuff doesn't really matter. But as an adult in the room with the kids, it wasn't as pleasant as we would have liked it. Lance told us that the room was considered standard in terms of Florida garage conversions. We did not know that a game room in Florida was like that. He also said that the room had ventilation for heating and AC. We couldn't find it.
Florida was cold when we were there. The temps fell below 60 degrees and with that, the pool heat was not put on because it wouldn't work in such cold weather. Perhaps a general statement could be made on the website description so people are aware of that before they come. Being from out of town, that was not common knowledge to us.
Small but there: The vertical blinds on the sliding glass door to the pool did not operate easily. We were concerned they would break so we didn't touch them. We just wanted to let light in.
Lance offered to let us view other homes to switch into. Thank you, but when on vacation,you want it right the 1st time and you don't want to spend your time looking for a place and packing up to move. Read more
Hi Tina: Thanks for taking the time to give such a detailed review. I also appreciate the fairness with which you presented my responses to your concerns. The only thing I want to add to what you presented is that when we discussed your dislike of the mattresses and I responded about personal preferences, I said that I was referring to a previous FlipKey review where a guest mentioned how comfortable the beds are. My goal is to make every guest happy. So when one guest states the beds are comfortable and another is unhappy with the beds, it is difficult to know how to respond. This is why I thought you might enjoy a different home with different beds. Otherwise, you are correct that in this market gamerooms are generally a converted garage and electric pool heaters cannot bring a pool up to temperature if it gets super cold outside. I appreciate your helping to educate future guests regarding these facts. For the reference of future guests, the A/C-Heater duct is located in the ceiling, right in front of the door into the laundry room. Some guests like to open it up to let the A/C-heat in and others prefer it closed so we allow guests to set it however they like. Lance

We loved the house, so beautiful and the kids loved the pool of course. We would recommend it to everyone. Not far from Disney or Sea world and we even went to the beach. Thanks again for letting us and our dog stay at your house and I'm sure you will see us back!

Wow!! This place was even nicer than I remember. Beautifully decorated room to room. The best part was the updated Game Room. From the pool table, and foosball table to the snack area and LCD TV with cable, everything was fantastic. Fresh carpeting and paint made the home seem brand new. The pool was excellently maintained. The gated entrance made us feel secure. The Publix was only 5 minutes way which made our grocery trip a breeze. We will be back and we will request this home. Thanks Dream Homes for providing us with a home away from home.
Good vacation house!

Our house oveall was good, but we noticed some wear on the furniture and also felt the house need a good cleaning and paint. Read more
Hi Marcus and Edye: Thanks for your honest feedback. Since you have written this note, the owner has installed a new gameroom, painted the interior, pressure washed the entire exterior of the home and did some wonderful renovations. This is one of our nicest homes. Lance

Our Vacation Home was fabulous! It was the second time we have rented from Dream Homes. We were a little hesitant the 1st time when I found their website online. We took the chance and were not dissapointed in anyway! We tell everyone we talk to that are vacationing in Florida to look up Dream Homes. And will definetly use them again when we return to Florida.
So So Home

This was the second house we have rented from Dream Homes. The first house was such a "dream" that we decided to use the Dream Homes again. Unfortunately, this time out, we didn't get what we paid for. The house was on the outside, BEAUTIFUL. The inside however, the master bedroom was so unfortable, that i had to drag a mattress from another room jut to sleep on the bed. It was awulf. The carpets were stained. The furniture was stained and uncomfortable. We just didn't enjoy the experience. Read more
Hi Marcella: Thanks for giving us your honest feedback. I looked at our records and on the day you checked out, you told us about your disappointment with the bed and the cleanliness. We contacted the owner of the home, and he immediately agreed to purchase a new, king sized bed. In addition, we immediately dispatched the cleaner and the carpet shampooer to address the items you had concerns about. I am sorry you did not enjoy your experience. I only wish you had called us when you first arrived so I could have fixed the problem or given you a different home. I did notice that we had given you a $225 discount on this home when you reserved, in part because you are a travel agent and in part because you wanted to turn off the pool heat the last time you rented, even though we had already turned it on and incurred expense. If you can give us another try, I will give you another discount and will ask you to call the first night to ensure the home is exactly what you want. Just give me a call. Lance Boyer, Owner
