Dog hair all over furniture in living room.
5/5 stars
Dog hair covered the furniture in living room. Cleaning person showed up and spent a good hour vacuuming the furniture. Much better now. Not enough towels for the number of people. Other than that so far so good. Can’t seem to get WiFi. 4 1/2 stars.

Clean and Spacious
5/5 stars
This house was very clean and the resort is very well maintained. The pictures are exactly as shown. Communication was best through the VRBO app and we would get responses within an hour. The phone contact was difficult to get someone. Two things to take into consideration: 1) Each vehicle in your party needs to purchase $20 gate card when you arrive and 2) Traffic on US-192 (Irlo Bronson Hwy), the main way to get to the parks, is always congested, so be patient. All that being said, I can recommend this property without hesitation and will book it again for my next family trip.
- Roger

Thank you for your review Roger we have shared with our team. We can always be reached via email or phone on our 888 number then select the department you need. Sometimes we have high call volumes so please leave a message if no one answers. Thank you and we look forward to your next stay with us.

4/5 stars
The home was exceptionally clean and accommodated our family’s stay. My issues were the long response time from the host. First my welcome packet wasn’t sent until I contacted them first. Also, I emailed them at 2:50 pm to inquire about using the bbq grill(which was chained with a combination lock). The host didn’t respond until 11 pm. Need to do a better job of including all info needed in the welcome packet.
- Dawn

Thank you for your review Dawn. We checked our system and can confirm that the welcome letter was sent to you on July 4th to the email address you provided at the time of booking, perhaps it went to your spam folder? Also, BBQ grill rental is an option for you when you book one of our homes and is noted in the property description. It is best to order the grill before arrival so that arrangements can be made to ready a grill. Thank you.

Great home!
5/5 stars
We just came back from a 4 night stay at this wonderful place! The pool was nice and our family totally felt at home here. The home appears to have been freshly painted and the furniture was comfortable as were the beds and everything was in great shape other than the refrigerator had some issues with the door shelves being bent and the bottom shelf would not stay in place. Our sweet pup had no problem settling in. The neighborhood is very peaceful as well. We will definitely stay here again!
Fair at best
2/5 stars
This property was recently sold in between the time of our booking and our actually stay. We were charged a higher rate and accepted because we were given one month notice if we wanted to find another place. It was bare bones basic. The pool was not cleaned well. The walls were patched with compound. The furniture was old and even one kitchen chair was broken before we got there. The shower screeched when the hot water was in. We thought there would be s pool table from the photos but there was not one there (only pool sticks) there was a broken play station with scratched games for the kids (needless to say it didn’t work) the lighting was stark fluorescent, not cozy or family inviting. On a positive note- we weren’t there for the house. It was close to the parks and fit 2 families well. I wouldn’t go back here. Needs major updates and TLC.
- Nicole

Thank you for your review Nicole. You are correct in that the home sold and we are the new management company who unfortunately didn't have any time between the closing and your arrival to check everything out in terms of working order however we did conduct a thorough cleaning. An interior decorator has been hired by the new owners and is currently updating the property. We are also addressing maintenance issues. Thank you again and you will be able to enjoy an updated property during your next visit to this home.
