Accommodations Review:

There were many vacation homes located in this subdivision, all owned by the same company. The homes are new, anywhere from one to four years old. Our home was very clean and well maintained. We had three bedrooms plus a den with a pull out sofa and a closet. One bedroom had two twin beds, one had a double and the master bedroom had a king bed and doors leading to the pool area. There were 2 1/2 baths. One bath had a door to the pool. The master bath featured a walk-in closet, whirlpool tub, huge shower stall, double basin, and a separate commode area. There was ceramic tile in all bathrooms and in the kitchen. The kitchen was fully equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, garbage disposer, and tons of other stuff. There was a nook with seating for four and a formal dining area with room for six. There were two TVs, one in the master bedroom and one with a VCR in the living room. Also included was a washer, dryer, iron, and ironing board in the garage. There's plenty more to mention and everything was in excellent working order. The home was everything the company led us to expect and then some!

Pool Description/Comments:

It was great having a pool all to ourselves! The pool had steps leading into a three or four foot section sloping down to about seven feet at the other end. There was also a hot tub, which we were not expecting. The pool was screened-in, which provides UV protection and keeps out the larger-type bugs and critters. The subdivision is surrounded by a conservation area and we were warned of possible encounters with wildlife. (We saw only one very small lizard climbing up the screen. Whew!) We requested a BBQ grill and had lots of patio furniture, including a table and cushioned chairs and a few chaise lounges. The pool could have been heated for an extra fee but it was okay in May without heat. The pool was very well kept and the landscaping in the backyard was nice.

Other Comments:

The staff at Affordable Florida was very friendly and helpful both before and during our stay. There was a lot of very active construction going on here that we noticed on a quick drive around the subdivision. Many new homes are going up. Some people do live here year round but not too many yet, from what I could see. Anyhow, the home was just what we needed for our budget and for our small children. We were at the house from about 12 to 4 PM everyday for naps etc. Even though I'm a Disney fanatic, I'd rather stay home than spend a week in one hotel room with three kids under the age of six! :) This house was perfect.
