House 10 Guests 3 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms
Top guest reviews
Amenities & Room:
The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes and pots
The master bathroom ( commode/shower room) is tiny- consider making the double vanity smaller and making the ensuite larger install a higher commode and make the shower bigger??The other bath room...
My only complaint is that there was no free cabinet space in the kitchen to place our own food or dressers in the bedrooms to unpack (which is not that big of deal)
We stayed here with our 6 kids - ages 7 - 13
and it looks like they are adding more units to their inventory
Bed linens are very nice quality plenty of pool towels and bath towels
House was nice and clean and was furnished with kitchen necessities
The host was quick to respond via VRBO and through texts
The latter along with the bath mats upgrade is warranted to keep up with the higher attention to details Smaller white motel'ish towels and some needed replacing May want to buy some new pillows-
As with most rental homes there is a line of expectation and reality
We went to Universal Studios several days and Sea World once Both are super close
those seem to get flat quickly in so many places
The area felt very safe
neighborhood was quiet and location was very close to Universal studios - about a 4 minute drive and a 10 minute drive to Disney World Owners were very easy to get in touch with Overall a pleasa...
The home is located in a safe quiet residential neighborhood
We were a little worried about spending a day at Universal and having the phones die and not being able to get in
You could not find a closer location to Universal Studios unless you stayed at one of the park's hotels which are considerably more expensive
