Then a bunch of people started commenting on it
I wondered if people really lived there and got to watch them every night

If ever there was a thread I wished I had popcorn for, it's this one. Unbelievable!

Hopefully the owner has not had more contact with you. If she does, you need to report her to the authorities as she seems unstable to me.

Good luck with your next vacation rental.

I read the initial post and then skipped to the last page because I could not believe this thread went to 10 pages. Now that I read the last page I am going to read the middle.

Sorry to OP that you had such a bad experience with your rental, perhaps it would be better to rent a time share directly from the establishment so at least there would be some accountability. I hope your vacation other than the house was a good time.

She has not contracted me again and neither has "Kathy". I hope the owner learned her lesson and learns to treat renters better. But I just looked on her website and the grill is still on it, so either she bought a new one or she did not learn anything.

It is just to bad that it had to go down like it did.

did this owner have references? when we go off site i always ask for them. I have never had a problem. Hopefully this is a rare instance if this owner has rented before.

I looked at her online reviews and it all seemed legit. It was my first time renting a house so I thought I did all my research that I needed to do. I checked out her management company and they were good, but she switched bewteen the time I rented and the time we actually stayed and I did not know that.

It was just one of those things were I got a really bad owner and paid the price for it. But I also rented 3 other homes at the same time (we had a family reunion down there) and had absolutely no issues with those. So it was just a bad apple.

Would you mind posting the names of the other 3 homes you rented? We are looking for a home for Sept or Oct and would love to know which ones are good. Thanks to your heads up we definitely know who to stay away from!

Sure!

Laughing Place - Beth Stec, owner.
This is a 4 bedroom house and was great. The owner is amazing and extremely easy to work with. We are renting from her again next month. She also owns 2 townhomes in Windsor Hills. Home is managed by Florida Sun.

Magic Palace - Rita Smith
This is a 5 bedroom house. The layout was a little strange - but the house was clean and Rita was pleasant to work with.

Tinkerbells Retreat
This is a 6 bedroom home, but the owners also own a 4 bedroom house as well. It was very clean and managed by Magical Vacation Homes.

If you have any questions about any of them, please let me know. I am more than happy to help!

Wow...thanks for the naptime entertainment What a nut. Glad this got bumped up so others will not rent from her. We are renting from WH in June, but thankfully not from her!

Wow.

Thank you for the review ..... And the subsequent entertainment

I must say, the owner's response and reaction to the situation including the "reviews submitted by owner" and the whole "Kathryn" thing was just and 10x more of a reason to NEVER EVER rent that property than the original issue in the first place. Your issues were completely valid but I don't think the owner could have handled it worse. That was... special.

We had great experiences with 5mins2disney and romancing the mouse.
