Condo was comfortable and homey. Being right on the Orange Lift shuttle and a block from other Lift routes was a big plus. Beds were comfortable and it was nice to have queen beds in all 3 bedrooms. Steph, the cleaning person, did a great job of prepping the condo before our arrival and happily let us drop our stuff off in one of the rooms while we left to go shopping and let her finish her cleaning (we arrived a bit early). Condo could use some functional improvements:
*There are no provisions for placing wet skis / snowboards and boots anywhere. We used the extra chunk of carpet from the closet to put on the floor of BR #2 as a ski and boot storage area. Having the 2nd door to the condo was very convenient for placing and removing our skis without having to walk through the rest of the condo.
*Dinner table is seriously too small. Condo claims to hold 9 adults, but there's only space/seating for 4 people. We understand that space is limited, but get rid of the useless, huge cushioned chair, switch the table to a similar-sized round table, but with an additional leaf to increase the table size for meals, and also add 2 more chairs (although the folding chairs in the closet would be adequate).
*Additional eating space could be added by changing the island part of the kitchen counter to include a deeper overhang and adding a couple of stools on the dining side of the island.
*Kitchen area could use a cheese grater and some larger serving spoons. Containers for leftovers would also be welcome.
*Mixer valve in shower of BR#2 did not always provide water that was warm enough. The other 2 showers and kitchen all provided ample warmth water.
*Master BR could use a TV.
*Main TV, DVD player, and sound system could use instructions for how to use. We had trouble getting the sound to go through the surround system instead of only through the TV.
*Wood fireplaces are nice, but a gas fireplace would be much easier to use and far cleaner.
*We missed not having a propane grill available. We understand the condo is on the 3rd floor and the patio would be unsuitable for a grill, but perhaps the condo complex could have a community grill available for use. We understand the logistics, maintenance, and provision of propane would be challenging, but perhaps there's a solution there.

Overall, the condo was quite adequate and comfortable for our smaller group. The positive aspects of the condo certainly outweighed the suggestions for improvements and we would definitely consider staying there again. It's obvious the owners took efforts to decorate the condo and to choose nice bathroom fixtures and kitchen stove and other appliances. The suggested improvements would help with functionality. Thanks for a fun stay!
Manager response:
Hi, Andrew! Thank you for staying with us! The front entrance is tiled so guests can place their skies and boots there without fear of water damage; we have suggested a boot tray to the owner. The dining room table currently seats five with two folding chairs located in the closet, and we will be adding two more in the near future. The hot water heater is working well, though it will run out if several showers are taken right in a row. We hope to see you again!

Excellent location and accommodations. We appreciated the space in the condo. It was clean comfortable and we will plan on staying here again.

We really liked the layout of the condo, plenty of space and 3 queen sized beds. The spiral staircase to the loft is lovely. It was within walking distance of the restaurants on the main drag and just a block away from the bus route as well. We also really enjoyed the wood burning fire place and balcony. It was well stocked with things you may forget to bring like coffee filters, salt, pepper and many other amenities. The decor is super cozy with throw blankets to snuggle up with everywhere. Having an elevator a few feet away made the arrival and departure process much easier. The views from the 3rd floor are nice too!

Great location!! Was perfect for our group.

Our family of five enjoyed getting away to this comfy and conveniently located condo. Many amenities were located within walking distance. Hernando's excellent pizza and pasta, breeze ski rentals, super Chinese food at Hong Kong were easy to access by foot. The shuttle to the slopes is mere feet from the front door! Every one was happy to get hot showers and relax in front of the fire place after a day of bombing the mountain. The elevator up to the third floor was very helpful towards the end of our stay after blasting out glutes and quads run after run. We would definitely come back for more!

The condo was nice and cozy, reletavily clean. The TV /cable didn't work a rep came out the next day and was available upon our return. The remote to the garage has NOT been found . A bit of a hassle to manually use but worth the trouble. Within walking distance of eateries. My wife and I would def stay here again.

9 family members able to eat and relax in comfort, close to activities with bus transport nearby. Much roomier and economical than several motel rooms. Signage or photo of exterior would have helped locating on arrival.

Can walk to most places in town and on the shuttle stop.

I really enjoyed my stay here, the house was fully stocked. There were beautiful views from the balcony and the beds were very comfortable. I will definitely stay here again next time I’m in winter park.
