We are vacationing here right now. While the house we are staying in is nice, the resort itself is lacking proper management. There is no security or noise ordinances for renters to follow.

We are vacationing here right now. While the house we are staying in is nice, the resort itself is lacking proper management. There is no security or noise ordinances for renters to follow. In fact, as I write this, it is 12:30 am and the house behind us is blaring music, kids are screaming in the pool and my entire family cannot sleep. The water park is poorly managed and needs to adhere to some type of rules. The lazy river is nice if you can get a tube. Lastly, this is a large resort and the pool area cannot accommodate all the vacationing families. If you want a table or a chair by the pool you better be in line at the crack on of dawn to get one. We will never stay here again! Read less

We stayed in Storey Lake which is about 20-25 mins from the Orange County Convention center. It was located conveniently close to Target, Sam’s club, and the Publix. The area was quiet and clean. It also had a pool, lazy river, sand volleyball, and basketball court as well as kayaking(gators..so that’s a hard no for me😳) But overall, a good… Read more

Something to consider before reading further: The resort pool/mini golf/lazy river area was fun for our kids who are teens/young adults. They seemed to be short staffed so service was slow and it wasn't getting cleaned up. There was definitely a party vibe, a lot of drinking and it got very loud on certain nights. I would not have been happy if my… Read more
Something to consider before reading further: The resort pool/mini golf/lazy river area was fun for our kids who are teens/young adults. They seemed to be short staffed so service was slow and it wasn't getting cleaned up. There was definitely a party vibe, a lot of drinking and it got very loud on certain nights. I would not have been happy if my kids were still little. I would rather have paid more money for something more "family friendly". That being said, the rest of this review has to do with our particular townhome. The good: Location & Price. Easy drive to Disney Parks, Drive Shack, restaurants, shopping etc. Price, you know what they say - if it's too good to be true... The bad: Almost everything else. The photos posted on airbnb show what our unit must have looked like brand new. The townhouse has been used hard since then and not been well maintained. Dishes were put away dirty, carpet is disgusting, beds do not have mattress pads, just two flat sheets & a comforter or blanket. Master bedroom had queen pillow cases on king pillows and the comforter/sham set has become pilled. There are scuffs all over the walls, baseboard trim & cold air intake are filthy. Couches & pillows are stained. Screen door by pool is still broken and master bathroom shower curtain still mildewed as stated in previous reviews. Both easily remedied but property management (Upmax) has not done so. Another review mentioned the cleanliness of the private pool. There was some film on the water and the filter was full of hair and a piece of broken goggles - not ours. Read the fine print regarding supplies, Upmax provides the bare minimum. If we were driving this wouldn't have been a problem and we could have brought stuff from home. However, we flew in and it is a huge waste to buy garbage bags, washcloths, dishwasher soap, etc. when you will use very little. The Frustrating: Expect very little instruction or communication. The only check in instruction was the door combo, nothing about security gate, no property map or information regarding the main facility and no check out instructions. We wanted to use the grill for dinner one night but didn’t know how to get the lock combo as nothing was posted on airbnb or in the townhouse. We tried to get ahold of property management via airbnb message and phone. We received no response to our messages on the app and their voicemail was full. After multiple failed attempts at getting help we were finally able to remove the lid from the back. No damage was caused and it was used for 15 minutes. They are now trying to charge us $50 for use of the grill. Had they ever bothered to reply this wouldn’t be an issue. They now claim it was stated in the description but I cannot find anything related to the grill. We had no idea there were fees associated with using it and thought it was locked in case someone came through the back screen door. Maybe I am overlooking something but the fact remains that we tried several times to get instructions pertaining to the grill and didn't get a response the entire time we were there. Read less

these units are individually owned. We were told to check in with security, what security? The grounds a filthy, pool is overcrowded and filled with dirty diapers, urine and drunks. Load screaming children (two and three year olds outside playing until 2 am on one side and blaring outdoor music on the other.) Called police, nothing. Complete nightmare. Our unit has beds that feel like they are made of concrete, no box springs, walls and floors are dirty, no cleaning supplies and smells of cat pee. A/C does not work properly so on top of noise, can't sleep because of the temp indoors. Units are cheaply constructed and the only nice building materials are those that photograph well. So not only should vacationers beware, investors beware you are getting screwed on your investment (cash flow will be great but appreciation will not be worth it in the long run. The price per square is reasonable at the moment but give it time and this place will become an even bigger shi! show was here 2 years ago and they were great now its an entirely different story. Pretty sure the monthly HOA dues are pretty high, but not sure exactly what the owners get for the money? No one has even picked up the trash. Oh and the only way to get the washer machine to stop beeping was to move it and unplug it. Staying in a tent on a campground would have been more relaxing. I wish there was a way to attach audio for everyone to here. I just want to cry. Staying here has ruined are trip to Orlando. I will NEVER return. Read less
