Peaceful and quiet

  • 4 of 5

Like any property there is pros and cons. The house is much bigger then it looks in the pictures! There is a golf course and pool to use but it is driving or golf cart distance. It is a bit of a walk. I do suggest finding the house during the day because it gets really dark around the propert at night. You can see tons of stars from the upper deck. It was quiet and very relaxing.

The cons were:The house did have a golf cart but there was not a key available. It says newly renovated but the house could use a coat of paint and the wall paper was peeling in the bathroom. Not a big deal. The stairs are not an issue it's your typical spiral stair case. Kind of a pain to carry luggage up it is a tight squeeze to carry up luggage and get your body to fit. I'm quite skinny, it sucked but that was the worst of the trip.

One thing that did bother me was the neighbors next door park on your side of the property in the grass. It made me nervous having them park there and i felt It was inconsiderate of them to do so. I was told if you have more then 2 cars to park at the club house. I felt like I had to watch where I parked and found myself feeling like I was bothering them if I blocked them in. In my opinion it was just rude but that's me.

The only thing that would of been nicer is just a bit more communication from the owner. They ask to send a message when you leave, which I did but a response back would of been nice like hey thanks for renting or say really anything back. Other then that it was perfect. Thank you for renting to us, your house was beautiful

Treehouse Review

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this rental from June 26 to July 3, 2016. We were a party of 7, 2 grandparents, 2 parents and 3 kids. This rental was a good value, however, it is worth mentioning to be helpful to others considering this rental, that there is only 1 private bedroom with a bed that a couple could share. My husband and I slept in the 2nd bedroom in twin beds which has a staircase that goes into a loft with 2 other beds. There is no privacy there unless no one is sleeping upstairs. The queen sofa sleeper is in the family room on the lower level. One other thing to mention, to get to the main living space where the kitchen is, you have to go up a very narrow metal spiral staircase. This could be problematic for some people. You have to go up and down the stairs each time you come and go from the condo.

This condo does not afford a view of the golf course or lake. It is on the far end of the development in the woods. It is a beautiful community and the clubhouse was very nice.

The condo was clean and well maintained. I would not rent it again mainly because of the staircase and the lack of privacy except for the 1 bedroom.

Owner's Response: Hi, the pictures are very accurate as to the bedrooms. The master is private. The second bedroom is private to the living space and there is a spiral staircase in that bedroom (as noted in the picture) that goes to a loft with two extra beds. I have updated the listing agreement to add that there is spiral staircase. The view is really one of the lovely things about this unit. It is not of the lake, but no units in abbey springs have a view of the lake, the lake is accessible by golf cart. I am attaching a picture of the view I took last week to the listing. It is the hint of a barn over the horizon in a file framed by trees. The view from the screen porch is trees. . It is a private location, away from the hustle and bustle of the rec center and you do not have golfers in your view. Personally, I love the view and most people also like it. This family complained about the fact that there was no boat (and they felt the listing suggested there was a boat with the listing) that is new for us. The lake certainly allows boats and you can rent one at the marina but there is no boat with the unit.

Spacious and quiet

  • 4 of 5

This was a great choice for long weekend. The property is located away from the high traffic areas of the resort so we felt like we were all alone in the woods. We had 3 adults staying here, and we all agreed the beds were comfy. There was also plenty of furniture for lounging (and that screened porch is awesome!). The place was very clean, and the kitchen had everything we needed for eating breakfast in and preparing lunches to go.

The only thing you can't tell from the photos is there is a second circular staircase from the first floor to the second floor (where the bedrooms and kitchen are), which makes getting suitcases and groceries up the stairs a little tricky because it's kind of narrow (like the one you do see in the photos).

Terrific Tree House Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Truly enjoyed our girls weekend at Abbey Springs. Took sdvantage of many amenities available at this fantastic property (pool, work out room, DJ and drinks at yacht club...). Took in the beautiful fall colors during walks on lake path. Condo felt like home was well equipped, very comfortable and clean. All of the property staff we encountered were extremely friendly and helpful. The only down side was not having enough time to do it all. Would love to return for another visit and will definitely recommend to friends. Thanks to the Arnold's for sharing their home.

Thank You very much. We all had a good time and we used all the facilities ( pool, workout rooms, yacht club for dinner, and other area restaurants) which were great.

The walking paths were beautiful and everyone was accommodating. The Arnold's were great.
