Extremely impressive house and wonderful place to stay!
I will give this property 5 stars overall, but will admit there was a significant water leak on the carpet of the downstairs bedroom that we had to deal with. Apparently when they built the house, the drain in the shower wasn't sealed properly and the water was leaking underneath the drain pan into the bedroom. We had guests staying in this bedroom and they were forced to deal with wet carpet by the closet for the first 3 days of their stay. I will say, however, once the problem was reported, management personnel from Villa Direct worked very quickly to resolve it. Still, it's something we were forced to contend with when we would've rather simply not had to mess with it. The only other negative review (If you want to say that) I would give is that the walls of the house were rather scuffed up in numerous places. (To be honest, property management could've done a better job on the wall "touch-ups") There was also a piece of trim that was broken off that came from the downstair bedroom closet. What shocked me the most was that people would actually rent a place as nice as this and yet be so careless as to scuff up the walls. We are always very respectful when it comes to staying at someone else's property and would never do this. Now for the good stuff. This property was truly wonderful. I'll admit, I'm always a skeptic when it comes to renting properties.......That said, I will say that my first impression was that this property was nicer than even the pictures displayed. Normally it's the other way around, but this property surpassed my expectations. Everything was nice and new and the pool was simply fantastic. The kids had a fantastic time!....Everything was furnished and decorated superbly. The neighborhood was also wonderful, very beautiful and private (in a gated community). Upon driving into the community we where wowed by how beautiful and wonderful it was. We would HONESTLY think of moving here in the future. In addition, the neighborhood pool was simply fabulous. It's all very new and is enormous and there are outside bars that are really nice. There is a lazy river, along with a couple of different pools and a kids play area. It was not very crowded either and I would rate it as a 5 star resort style pool. We went to Atlantis last year in the Bahamas and this pool was comparable to some there. Not to mention, the clubhouse was superb. All-in-all, I would come back to this property in a heartbeat!
