    The highlight of Orlando was the Adventure Express Tour at Seaworld. There were just the 6 of us in our group out of a possible 18, so we had a fantastic time.

    Will post pics with trippie.

    We had problems with a villa once and it really does put a dampener on the holiday. I hated having to go back there every day. Hope you manage to get things sorted out with the owner

    I like that idea. I've booked direct with a villa owner and they let me ask a bazillion crazy questions before I commited to giving them money. :D

    Welcome home, Catherine!

    Glad you enjoyed yourselves, despite the lack of cooperation by the Orlando weather!

    Looking forward to your trippie--after the laundry!

    We had so many problems with the villa, like i said in an earlier thread, it was from another forum member. I did e mail and even speak over the phone to the owner to make sure what we needed from the villa was in place.

    The villa's position was fab, sunets over the lake to die for.

    Now the villa.

    Bearing in mind that Connah is severly visually impaired.
    We got there about 8pm, when we turned the kitchen/dining/living lights on, 15 bulbs where out, so not much light. The management company do not provide replacements, they have to be called to do it.

    The Hot-tub, didnt work for 3 - 4 days as it needed re-wiring 3 times.
    The Pool light wasnt working for the entire holiday. This was terrible fot Connah as he needed the light in the evenings to swim, so no evening swimming. He also did bang his head as one of the patio lights blew too and he fell.
    The pool was dirty
    The air con didnt work for 3 days

    NIGHTMARE.

    I am going to speak to the villa owner this evening. I feel we deserve some compensation.

    Connah turned 13 in New York and we all went to Madison Square Garden to watch WWE Raw, it was superb. xxx

    Sorry the villa was so bad Catherine :sigh;

    My problem is I am very fussy about cleanliness and the place we stayed at in 2006 was revolting. The owner gave me the cleaning fee back and offered me a discount if I booked again not a chance

    I hope you get something sorted out
