Hello, Thank you so much for being so kind. We had a wonderful time in Florida. This trip was my first to Florida and it was so amazing. I look forward to visiting again soon. Our stay at your vacation home made the trip that much more exciting. The kids enjoyed the access to the private pool on a daily basis. Although it took us a while to realize that grocery stores and a mall was about 5-10 minutes away it was still great. Staying in the vacation home was wonderful and convienient for all of us. The house was very clean and inviting. Hotels are officially out. I look forward to visiting Florida again very soon and staying with Dream Homes. Thank you kindly

To our new friends at Dream Homes, I was so thankful that I found your homes. We have vacationed in some beautiful hotels over the years but this was by far the nicest place we have ever stayed. With a large family we have a hard time finding hotel rooms that will accommodate all of us. Not only did we have enough room but the kids had room to play. The home that we stayed in had all the amenities of our home and then some. I looked at the pictures on-line but they could not prepare us for what we walked into. The home was decorated beautifully and very clean. We will never stay in a hotel again. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. I look forward to staying with you again very soon. Please feel free to share this email with any future guest, and I would happy to talk with anyone who wants to hear first hand what we think. I will also be posting a note on hotels.com as well. I also told everyone I saw about your homes. We have some wonderful pictures that we would be happy to share. Thank you. Sincerely,
The Carter's, Canada, Paradise, NL
Hi Lance, We just wanted to let you know how very impressed we were with you, and your staff at Dream Homes. From the directions, to the welcome gift bags, everything was spot on! The 5bed/4bath house on 2659 Oneida Loop was absolutely amazing! Our 2 kids loved the pool and spa, and the fact that you were able to provide us with internet service by upgrading us at no extra cost was fantastic! Everything was only minutes away, and highly convenient! We are planning to return in June 2009, so you can be sure to hear from us! Thanks again for being so accomodating. We will make sure to reccommend you to all our frinds! Take Care

We just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how happy we were with the house we rented from you earlier this month. It was absolutely perfect and exactly as you said it would be. It was conveniently located, very spacious and perfectly clean and in good repair. The heated screened-in pool was a real joy for my son. We arrived later than we thought and were really worried about getting in touch with someone to get our keys. There, in the lock box at your office we found our keys, a really good map to the house, and though we slept very late the next day, no one was beating on the door asking for payment. We couldn’t have been happier. Everything was exactly as advertised, and that is rare in this day and age. Thank you for your contribution to making our daughter’s wedding at Walt Disney World a hassle-free and more enjoyable experience.

Hello everyone, I wanted to let you know that the home we stayed in was absolutely BEAUTIFUL. This is the only way to go when vacationing. The area was quiet, relaxing and having all of the amenities just like home was great! No confinement to a “room”, no lines to stand in for breakfast, no worry about getting a good spot at the pool, no dirty laundry to drag home, no sitting on beds to watch TV., with a kitchen, there were no inflated prices for lunch, snacks, etc., no noise pollution and no hustle-bustle!!! Jeff, both of our moms and myself were EXTREMELY pleased with everything. As a matter of fact, we all agreed that we would never stay in a motel/hotel/condo again while vacationing in Florida. On behalf of all of us, thank you so much for making our vacation very relaxing, convenient and enjoyable. We will definitely see you all again in the future. We will “spread the word” about Dream Homes! As a matter of fact, my husband took pictures of the home and will be showing them to a co-worker who was interested to know about our experience with your organization! Kindest regards,
Chandra Stevens, TN
Enjoyed our stay here, so close to disney we could here the fireworks at night ! Loved the layout of the house, only wish it had ceiling fans, as that is what we are used to. Got to Orlando earlier than I thought and called at 11:00am for early check in at 1:00 pm, but wasn't able to check in early at all. When they say 4:00 pm check in they mean it. Overall great place to stay !
HI! Yes, we're now home and back in the minus temperatures...oh well. We had a fabulous time in Florida and LOVED our Dream Home! When we first walked in to our home I remember thinking WOW, what a beautiful home and WHY, would anyone ever stay in a hotel when a place such as this is available. Thanks again for providing us with a home away from home. We will certainly pass on to anyone, considering Florida as a destination, that Dream Homes is their best option.

Hi Jacquee: Thanks for the email - I'm not sure if there was supposed to be a survey attached to it, and we didn't fill one out when we turned in the keys, but either way we had a great time at the house and would recommend your service to anyone - in fact we did several times to people we met at the Int'l. Builders Show. For business people like ourselves attending or exhibiting at a trade show and bringing 3 of our staff with us, its a great way to save money - we would have needed to pay for 3 hotel rooms if we hadn't used the house. It also meant that when the show finished each day we could go back to the house, get some much needed beers, wine and snacks, and spend an hour talking about the leads we had got and what our strategy was for the next day. Its much easier to do this in the comfort of the house rather than a noisy bar somewhere. My husband and I think it is such a good idea we would even use one of your houses if we were coming down on our own, without our employees, as we find it much more relaxing than staying at a hotel. Thanks again for all your help and I look forward to using Dream Homes again - by the way, we are attending another show in July so we'll see you soon.
Hi, I just stayed in 8442 Secret Key Cove at Emerald Island Resort. I just wanted to say how great everything was and how beautiful the home. I have rented homes near Disney World for several years because my mother lives close by, but, the service from your management company and the beauty of this home were truly exceptional. The furnishings at this home were very upscale. The pictures do not do justice to how nice the furnishings really are. And the little touches were great! I particularly liked the size of the shower. It was much bigger than one finds at most homes. Also, the towel hanger on the shower was very convenient. Small touches such as this make this home a stand-out. The luxury bed linens were much appreciated. I have grown used to top quality sheets and it was sheer bliss jumping into them every night on vacation as well. It seems many places try to cut costs in this area, but not at this home! The mattress firmness was perfect and the pillows were the best! Thanks so much. The pool was crystal clear and though I paid extra to have it heated, it was worth it as the temperature setting was perfect for cool November evenings! All in all, I cannot say enough about the quality and value of this particular home. It cost a bit more, but when you see what you get for the price -- you realize the value you have received for your dollar. It was money well spent for a fabulous vacation home! Thanks again!
Jamie Jerger and Party , Barnesville, Mn
Dear Lance and Karin, Thank you very much for the great trip and memorable home. We were the party of 9 and we had the greatest time in your homes. You well exceeded our expectations on the home we thought we would be receiving, it was brand new, and beautifully furnished. I would recommend you and your company to anyone that was looking for an affordable option to a hotel. We stayed in our home with a private pool for cheaper than we could have stayed in a hotel room which was great because we all had our own bedroom and the luxury of saving hundreds of dollars in food because we had our own kitchen which was fully furnished. GREAT is the only word I can think of that describes your company. THANKS AGAIN DREAM HOMES...we'll be back next year!!! Thanks Again,
Bill Brandt, Manalapan, Nj
Hi Donna, Thanks for your interest in our satisfaction. We had high expectations of your homes from your website description, and we are happy to report, your homes met each one of them! You run a nice operation, and we plan to book our next vacation home rental through you. Let me tell you a little bit about your compitition: We stayed four nights in your homes (we rented two). Then traveled down to Fort Meyers Beach, and stayed in 2 homes we rented through v.b.r.o. The homes on the beach were advertised to have the same accommodations, and cleanliness that yours did. Your homes met and even exceeded those advertisements. The homes on the beach, the one we got stuck with in particular, was filthy. Dirty dishes in the cabinets, dirty furniture, dirty bathrooms, no T.V. as promised, due to a recent break in. It was so bad, that we stayed in a hotel 2 nights instead of going back to the house. Doing that saved the last couple nights of our vacation. I just thought you might be interested in what your competition is up to. Keep up the good work Donna, we have many great memories from our vacation, much of it due to your wonderful homes. Thank you,
Lorna, Cliff, Dan & Dan Jr. Hunt
Hi Lance, We had to let you know that our vacation in Orlando was the best yet. Having a lovely home to go back to after a long day at WDW made our vacation that much better. We cant imagine staying in a hotel room ever again. The weather was great so we took full advantage of the pool every day. Our grandson enjoyed having his own room and plenty of room to play while us adults could just relax. We will definitely recommend your homes to others and already have a few people interested. Thank you again for all your help.
Danny Cure, Slidell, LA
Just wanted to let you all know that we had a great time and the woman (whose name I do not remember) that checked us in was excellent by giving us a bigger condo than we were promised because of the amount of people we had. The price was awesome and the place was great. We want to stay with you all again next year in october instead, so as soon as you have prices for next year we will be ready to book. Hopefully we can get a good price like the one you gave us this year.. I also told all of my friends about the great service we got and a couple of them should be contacting you soon. Thanks again,

Dear Donna, Last Friday, my family returned from our trip to Florida. I just wanted to thank you for assisting us with our accomodations. We were housed at 1007 Soaring Eagle in the Eagle Pointe community. The home and surrounding area were lovely. I was initially a little nervous making reservations online and sight unseen, but I would (and will) recommend this type of rental to anyone traveling to the Orlando area. The house was even nicer than we hoped to expect. Being on the small lake was also a nice surpise. We saw turtles, fish jumping, birds and even had a baby alligator visit!!! Our trip to Florida was certainly enhanced by the comfortable, homelike accomodations. There were 6 adults in our party and we never felt cramped or like we were running into one another as you would in a hotel. Once again, thank you for your assistance. We hope to be calling on you again next year for you help!!!
Donna Our family very much enjoyed our stay in the Orlando area and the use of the home was a huge part of it. After the crowds, lines and hustle of the day it was a great relief to go “home” and be away from it all. The home was everything that we had hoped and exactly as you had represented. The directions from the airport were great and while checking in the information regarding attractions, grocery stores, video rental, etc. was right on the money and very helpful. In closing we were very pleased and I am keeping your card and number as we are recommending your service to friends, family and our future return. Thanks again,
Kelly & David LaBonte, South Bridge, Ma
Dear Mr. And Mrs. Boyer: My husband and I would like to take this opportunity to express our complete and total satisfaction with the home we rented from AAA Dream Homes from April 11th through April 20th of this year. This was the first time we rented a home near the Orlando area and it was an experience we will treasurer. Not only was our home beautiful, the neighborhood was quiet and well maintained, our children throroughly enjoyed having their own pool for the week and they agreed this is the only way to go when on vacation. Our family’s experience to Florida was the best yet and we believe it was due in large part to having a clean, beautiful and comfortable home to relax in while on vacation. We have been to Florida a few times before and stayed at the All-Star Resort where we only had one room (with two beds) and a bathroom. Having the luxury of a completely furnished kitchen was great because as you know, children are hungry at all times of the day. We feel we saved a lot of money renting the home because we were able to eat a lot of meals in which would have otherwise cost us dealy. We have spread the word about AAA Dream Homes and we look forward to visiting Florida in two years, at which time we will be renting another home from you. Again, thank you for a wonderful vacation. Very truly yours,
Jill Ellison, Amherst, Oh
We stayed in one of your vacation condos in Kissimmee earlier this month. We just wanted to thank you. The condo was perfect. It was the best part of our vacation. Thanks for everything.
Tim Justice, San Diego, Ca
We were completely satisfied with our stay and we would definitely use your service again if we are in the Orlando area. Best regards,
Hi Lance, My family stayed in one of your homes for a week in October and I just wanted to say that it was everything you promised. We were so thrilled and absolutely loved the house. The kids especially loved the pool! We've told our friends what a great deal it was to stay there and forget staying at Disney! Thanks for making our vacation stay a great memory!
We wanted to let you know how wonderfully pleased we were with the home that we rented for our weeks stay in Orlando. The kids were as excited with the backyard pool as they were with Disney World. The beds were great, which meant a lot after 8-9 hours walking in a park. The home was convenient to everything we needed. I and my sister’s family have several friends who are planning trips in the next few months and we won’t hesitate to recommend you. Thanks again!!
Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time in Orlando. The home we rented was just wonderful!!! We were upgraded to a 4 bedroom/3 ½ bath home with a larger pool at no extra charge. My family and I were impressed at how clean, orderly, and well equipped the home was. Lance was very helpful and agreeable. I would definitely rent from you guys again. Thanks again.
The Himes Family, West Cola, SC
We just returned from our trip to Disney and wanted to let you know how fabulous it was. We will NEVER stay in another hotel when we come your way. It was way more than expected and we had a marvelous time. We will be back since we didn't get to go to SeaWOrld because of Barry and we will definetly stay with ya'll. Thanks so much
Linda Crouse, Avenel, NJ
Just wanted to say that our 1st stay in Florida was fantastic. We came into Orlando very late, picked up our keys, found our condo so easy with all the instructions to everywhere we had to go on our arrival. We just loved the condo, the area and of course the pool and facilities. We had 4 21 year old kids with us and they enjoyed the game room and pool. We spent 3 days in the parks and were exhausted but being able to go to the pool anytime we wanted was so relaxing. The condo was beautiful and was perfect for our family. I really miss the palm trees and my husband told me that we are going to get 2 palm trees and put them beside our hot tub to make me think of our great vacation. I cant thank all of you for the best vacation we have ever had and cant wait to come back again. Two friends want some information on our stay, so I cant wait to give it to them. May was a perfect time to come, the weather was perfect and the lines at the parks were not bad. We will be back again and this time to disney. Dont know when but we will be back. This vacation was planned because our twin daughters turned 21 last Oct and promised them a special vacation. It was the best. Thanks again so much and God bless all.
The Balajis, Littleton, MA
Hi Jackie, Lance and the home owners, Just wanted to let you know our stay at one of your homes was great. We had a real nice time in Disney World this year especially when it came to returning home after those long hours in the park. I have already recommended these homes for my friends. Our daughter loved the heated pool. We will definitely visit you again soon. Thanks,
I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in Florida. The house you set us up in was absolutely beautiful. Everyone in our group was amazed at the amount of room we had in the house and the extras in the house like the washer/dryer, towels, sheets etc. This was my 4th vacation to Walt Disney World. I have stayed in a hotel off property once and twice I have stayed on property. The house was the best of all visits. I took pictures of the house before we left and have been showing them around work and to family. Everyone is amazed at the house. I would recommend to anyone making arrangements to visit your area to stay in one of your homes. I hope you are enjoying your mushrooms. I would also like to talk to you about being a rental agent for your homes. Thanks again for a wonderful house
Just wanted to send you a "thank you" for the wonderful customer service, hospitality and opportunity afforded to us during our recent stay. I have been raving about Dream Homes. Looking forward to seeing you next year.
Bud Mayer, Niagara Falls, Ny
Dear Jeff, It was nice meeting you on our visit to Orlando. You should have received the second house key by now. If not, let me know. As the last time, we very much enjoyed our stay in one of your rental homes. It was a perfect way for our group to experience a trade show by offering the privacy of separate bedrooms yet also having living areas to congregate for conversation and entertainment. The full kitchen provided a cost effective alternative to eating out -- especially making breakfast a relaxed, casual experience to start the day. I highly recommend your rentals and have passed along your cards to others looking for a cost effective alternative to crowded and expensive hotels. Hotels cannot compare with the space and amenities your houses provide. Looking forward to staying with you again. Best regards,
Wendy Robbins, Savannah, GA
Dear Lance and Karin, My family and I resided at one of your properties approximately 3 weeks ago in Florida. I must say the accommodations were excellent. The welcome and service we receive from your staff was reassuring of what kind of stay we could have look forward to having. Although we had several changes to come about with our party, Karin and Michelle were very understanding and saw fit to accommodate our party in everyway possible. On behalf of my family and I we Thank You and your staff at Dreamhomes. We will definitely try to recommend you guys to everyone we know that are coming to Florida to vacation. We are planning to return in the near future and you guys will definitely be the first on our list for accommodations. Once again Thank you for a pleasant stay.

Dear Editors, Not long ago you made a brief mention in your newsletter about Dream Homes in Florida. My wife, daughter, grandson and I have stayed in a Dream Home for the last two weeks and will depart on Tuesday. It has been a wonderful experience. We rented an almost new (2-3 years old) three bedroom, two bath, living/dining room, kitchen and two car garage for about $105 per day. The home is fully equipped with all the modern conveniences such as microwave oven, TV, VCR, dishes, furniture, in other words, all you need to bring is your toothbrush. After using the initial supply, you will of course have to supply your own toilet paper, paper towels and dinner napkins, etc. My wife located Dream Homes on the Internet and all the paper work was handled by e-mail and FAX. When we arrived late in the evening, our instructions were to go from the airport to their office (detailed instruction on how to get there were provided), use a code to open a box to retrieve our keys with instructions about how to get there. We were instructed to go to their office the next day to complete the paper work which also was easy to do. When we arrived at the home, we found it to be spotless. It is 1215 square feet in area and has a screen enclosed, but not heated, swimming pool. Heating the pool costs $20/day but it was quite warm enough for us to swim in without heating. It has been a great experience, one that my wife and I would definitely recommend. Their checkin address is:5260 West Irlo Bronson Highway (Highway 192), Kissimmee, Florida. Telephone (407) 396-2233. e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lance, Just wanted to let you know that my family and I had a wonderful time in Orlando. The accommodations that you provided were great. The house was wonderful. We were pessimistic at first, but once we walked into the house, we fell in love with it. We were impressed with how clean and orderly everything was. We were also impressed with how accommodating you were. We would definitely rent from you again. Thanks again.!!
Mark Drechsler, Southington, CT
I want to thank you for the wonderful experience we had in renting a Dream Home. The home was very spacious, clean and comfortable and there was no difficulty in checking in or out thanks to Jackie. We hope to experience this again in the not to distant future. Thanks again,
Melissa & James Criscillis, Graniteville, Sc
Thank you for such a nice clean and affordable place to stay. We had a great vacation and look forward to returning soon. Hope your rates and homes stay as great as they were on our visit. Thanks to Jennifer for all the time and patience.
Janice Youngblood, Tallahassee, Fl
Hi Lance. Just wanted to let you know I've told TONS of people here in Tallahassee about our trip last weekend and how nice the house was. Hopefully, you'll get lots of rentals out of that! :) Do you or anyone you know rent houses like that in other locations? The group I brought down to Disney is planning a trip to the mountains in Georgia this fall. We did a trip like that last year, but we had to rent 2 cabins to get the number of bedrooms we needed. It would be great if we could find one house where we could all stay. If you know of any place, please let me know. We're also planning another trip to Disney next year, so I'll definitely be contacting you then. Thanks.
Hi Lance! We have returned home and I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the wonderful accomodation with DREAM HOMES. We really enjoyed our stay in Kissimmee and are very grateful the office staff was able to accomodate us. This made our stay even more enjoyable. Should we or any of our friends or family travel to Kissimmee in the future, we will definitely contact you. THANK YOU!
Graham, Julie, Kate and Beth! St.Catharines Ontario Canada
Hello Michelle, Lance. We wish to thank you for the wonderful accommodations and the reservations for the Disney theme parks. We had a wonderful time and are still talking about the great time we had. The house was just as we had hoped it would be and the pool was a welcome tonic(after a 20+ hour drive!).We highly recommend your homes to our friends and in the future, if we are out there again will book with you only. Once again thank you
Hello Rex and Penny, Just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful time in Florida. We were totally impressed with the home. We down graded to a 3 bedroom 2 bath and is was actually nicer than I expected. We are going to use your service in the future and let others know about it, Just want to say, Thank you,
Hi Rex, this is Julie, just wanted to let you know that we had a great time in Orlando. The house was out of this world. I can't wait to go back there and tell all my friends. If you have some brochures or pictures you can send me so I can spread the word to my friends here in Miami, I know they would want to go stay there. You can send it to: (address deleted), North Miami Beach, FL 33160. I thank you again for all your help.
Judy Paras, Executive Secretary Technical & Career Education, Fort Myers, Fl
Jacquee, I completed the survey and turned it in with the keys. I really want to thank you for all your assistance in reserving the house, etc. Everyone loved the home and the amenities. We couldn't believe the price for what we got. We were all sad that we couldn't enjoy it longer. However we are already discussing going again in the future. I will definitely refer friends, etc. to you. Thanks again.
Karen & Daniel Cure, Carriere, MS
Thank You. We loved the service provided and the area is great! We are even reccommending that if friends are visiting the area to check out your prices and properties as well. You will have life long clients with us. We would rather stay with you guys than stay on grounds!!!!!!
Tanisha Jenkins, Fayetteville, Ga
I just HAD to write and let you all know how truly grateful and satisfied we were with our DREAM HOME!! I have to admit, I was a little antsy about the whole situation from the start, with doing everything strictly over the internet but after speaking with Denise and Jacquee and going on the BBB wesite, I felt that this was the "real thing". We had a HUGE amount of people with us (something that we rarely do) and we were just so afraid that we would be crowded in on top of each other, and we just would not feel at home. How wrong we were. This home, at 4520 Philadephia was all that were hoped for and then some. There was nothing left out! The kids loved the swimming pool, of course and we (the adults) couldn't believe that there was a fully furnished kitchen, iron, ironing board, toaster, microwave, and enough towels for the entire party. There was even a washer-dryer! The home was a seven..yes SEVEN bedroom home with 4 baths. I was happy that there was a "master" on the main level with a garden tub and seperate shower, giving my husband and I some quality time together, just like if we were home. Although we didn't get to stay an extra night like we wanted, we were more than satisfied with our stay. We are already making plans to come back this year. Some members of our party said that they were going to have their mail delivered at the home!! I do have to mention the city ordinances, though. We had a member of our party to have her car ticketed for parking her two front tires,( is what the ticket read), on the sidewalk. There should have been a warning or a knock on the door to notify us of this law before a ticket was issued. Please make sure that in the near future, you let your guests know that in Liberty Village they are not to park in the driveway, blocking the sidewalk. I will never stay in a hotel again! I can assure you of this. If you want to have people that are scared to rent a home from you, as I was, to drop me a line, via e-mail, to calm their nerves, I would be happy to do so. I am a living, breathing testimonial and I am also one that is hard to please or impress. I can be reached at [email deleted] or [email deleted]. Thank you so much for a lovely, impressive vacation!! Oh, I forgot to mention that others seem to have had a hard time with the directions, we had no problem, we went straight to the office, and then straight to the home!
Reference LIII Dear Mark & Susan, Just wanting to let you know we had a WONDERFUL vacation at Disneyworld! And one of the highlights was our beautiful condo you had for us. We moved right in and felt like we were at our second home. Our girls had a great time at the pool and recreation center. It was really perfect. At the rec center we met 2 men that had just purchased a home and were asking us about how we rented ours. They were very nice and were stating that they thought they might need a management company for their property. We gave them your website & raved on you guys. Thank you again. We will always remember how fun our vacation was. And it was made care free by you two. Sincerely,
Hedy Moor, Conference Coordinator Lindy Software, Humble, Tx
Our stay was great! The house was marvelous! We were in a good location where restaruants, and grocery stores were plentiful, and the distance to the convention center wasn't bad either. Would like to commend your cleaning lady who really did a great job cleaning the BIG mess the people before us left for her, and still managed to let us in a little early. You've got a great team! Was a pleasure doing business with you and we will keep you in mind for the future. Do you have homes in Florida only? Best Regards
Sandy Davis - Sicklerville, New Jersey, Sicklerville, Nj
Hi Lance, My family (all 16 of us) just returned from our Florida "Dream Home" vacation. We enjoyed it tremendously (even the youngest one -2years). My husband and I along with our two daughters were "Dream Home" vacationers in April of this year. We wanted the rest of the family to enjoy the comfort and space of vacationing in a dream home versus the hotel. They were pleasantly surprised at the spacious and tastefully decorated home. The bonus was the four bathrooms -- enough so that we didn't have lines waiting to get in. We will definitely use Dream Homes again. Sincerely,
Janet Wean Fairmont, WV
Lance, Just a quick note to let you know how pleased we were (a family of 7 with ages ranging from 13 to 72!) with the acommodations while vacationing in Florida. The home was beautiful and very well maintained. Your service was extremely efficient from my first inquiry about the homes, all the way through the check out process. I would certainly rent with your agency again, and have recommended it to several individuals. Thanks again!
Karen Berends, Oakville, Ontario
Jackie, We had the “perfect” vacation. Thank you for arranging our accommodations and park hopper passes. Next time we intend to stay longer so that we can enjoy a few relaxing days by the pool! We returned home to snow and very cold temperatures – it was wonderful running each morning in FL in shorts and a singlet…something that I won’t be able to do here for a few more months! Jackie I would like to speak to someone about the dream homes sales agent program. I believe that there is a market here in Ontario Canada for your services. Please let me know if you have Canadian agents already and let me know who I can speak with further. Thanks once again for everything. We will definitely stay in one of your homes on our next visit. Regards,
Dorene and Aubrey Howell, Bridge City, LA
Dear Dream Homes, Thank you for the house that was provided for our vacation (12/7-12/14) in Orlando. The house was spacious, clean, comfortable and just a few minutes Disney World. We had all the convenience and comforts of home. Thank you,
Bob Samson, Scottsdale, Az
Lance & Karin-I wanted to express my thanks for the services and home you provided for a recent stay in Orlando (3-10 to 17-2001). The home was just as you advertised it to be - spacious, clean, well furnished and close to everything. Check in and check out went smoothly and I will definitely recommend your homes to others who are coming to Orlando. Keep up all your good work. Thanks again!
Hello Our stay was great, the house was lovely and we certainly going to rent again in the near future. Thank you so much.. sincerly,
Thanks so VERY MUCH for helping with my family vacation. You and your co workers are the GREATEST!
Jeanette Mathias, Olathe, KS
Greetings, We had a wonderful time on our trip to Orlando Jan 13-16. The home was wonderful. Very clean and lots of room. It was furnished beautifully. Thanks so much for the great home! I thought I noticed that you may be looking for "agents" in the KC area. If so, I would be interested in knowing more about what that means. I have referred two groups to your "Dream Homes" for their upcoming vacations. Again, thanks for the excellent facilities.
mike and carol Cartwright and kids, Afton, Mi
lance, just wanted to drop you a line and let you know we had a great time on our vacation and the kids loved the pool. our 3 year old twins were scared of the water last year but they sure aren't now! we would like to see if you have any rentals s/eof kissimmee as we had such a great time we are planning a trip for april 2005 and maybe a little longer! just drop us a e-mail.
Bill and Wendy Neugebauer, Aliquippa, Pa
Hi Jeff and Lori! Thanks for asking about our stay. .Check in was quick and painless.....(which I was personally thankful for because we were all hot, tired and looked a mess after 20 hours of driving.) We filled out a short form, paid our balance on the house and our requested discount tickets and we were handed our directions and our key. That's it! We were on our way to a hot shower and a good meal within 10 minutes. The house not only met our needs, but actually exceeded our expectations! The house was very clean and beautiful, and it was spacious enough to accommodate our large group with room to spare! Everything that we needed was already there and all we had to buy was a few groceries. We couldn't have asked for anything more. The kids had a blast in the pool, but for the adults it was too cold to swim in. The next time that we go we're definitely getting the pool heated. We didn't think that we'd need the pool heated in May, but we'll know for next time. LOL We'll never stay in a hotel again. It was nice to be able to save money on lodging, avoid the expense of eating out, and not have to step all over each other in a cramped hotel room. We'll definitely stay with you again next year! Thanks! PS...do you have any homes in areas other than Orlando?

My family and I recently stayed in one of your homes and had a wonderful time. I just wanted to say thank you. The house was great. I have and will continue to recommend your services to my family and friends. Again, Thank you for a great vacation.
Hi Lance-I just wanted to tell you how satisfied we were with our rental experience with you. The reservation and check-in process was so efficient and the house was exactly as you described it. We were very satisfied with the home you assigned to us. It was immaculate and well-equipped for three adults and six children. After long days at the park, it was great to come back to a comfortable house. While we prepared many meals in the big, spacious kitchens, the kids would relax and enjoy the pool. Thanks for helping us create an experience we’ll long remember.
Just a THANK YOU for such a wonderful home we occupied last week at the Emerald Island Resort. The children loved the pool. Our family loved it sooo much that we are talking about coming back next year to see the sites we did not get to see this trip. Of course we will contact Dream Homes for accommodations. Again thanks for such a beautiful home.
Vicki S. Beale Principal, Greensboro, NC
We had a wonderful time & the accommodations were perfect for our family. We've already shared the info with others & will continue to do so.

Dear Jeff & Lori I wanted to take this opportunity to write you and thank you for providing Eos Sports Inc. with such a great rental property during our stay at the Orlando P.G.A show. The home far exceeded our expectations for size and amenities and the home afforded a far more enjoyable and cost effective trip than having to stay in a hotel for a week. The relative close proximity to the show site enabled us to maximize our time prior to heading to the Convention Center each day. Please do not hesitate to use Eos Sports as a reference. We look forward to renting homes from you in the future. Kind Regards,
Carlene, St. Albans, Vt
We just wanted to let you know that we realy enjoyed the house in Creekside we stayed in. It was clean and had everything you said it would have. We had great weather and our vacation was awesome. Thanks again and we will be recommending your house rentals to our friends. It has been a pleasure doing business with you. We stayed in the same house as the Mercys . Thanks again
Dear Andy & Kathryn, My entire family joins me in saying what a wonderful experience it was doing business with you and staying in your beautiful home. it was absolutely perfect for us! I hope we left it in decent shape. We left some supplies that I hope the next family was able to utilize. We will all keep you and your business in mind the next time we plan a trip to florida or when we hear of someone planning a trip. the trip was a huge success, thanks in large part to you and your wonderful home! thanks again for the hospitality. Until next time...
Dear Boyers: What a GREAT time we had in the house on Chatham Circle! The location was perfect, the house was so clean that we did not do any preliminary cleaning (which may be a record for vacation homes for us), and the home itself was well-equipped. My 17 year old son reveled in the TV upstairs....... In spite of the fact that we apparently brought the rain from up North to Florida with us, we still had an amazing time at the World. I just wanted you to know that the agents that you employ do a very good job, and the speed dial for fast food came in very handy on a wet, soggy, and very tiring night. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we are considering doing it all over again next year! I will contact you with our request once the final decisions have been made (the date will depend on certain senior events at our son’s high school). Once again, thanks so much for making our Florida trip such a success! Sincerely,
Wendy Vanover & Family, Celina, Oh
Dear Lance, My family & I just wanted to thank you for all your help. We were very pleased! We are telling all our friends about “Dream Homes”. Thanks again for everything. Sincerely,

Thank you for replying to my email, but your exceptional customer service has already replied to me and the issue has been taken care of . I gladly made my reservation with dream home and reccomended you to my friends. Your manager is truly a class act and she should be commended. Thanks again and I look foward to my vacation with dream homes.

I formed part of the Sisneros party at 224 Buckingham Circle, Haines City. We had a spacious, clean, well equipped 4-bedroomed home. Thank you for such great service! Regards,

Just wanted to send you a note of thanks for providing a very nice and very clean house for our recent vacation. It was everything we had hoped for and more. Although we rented a four bedroom / two bath house, you provided us with a five bedroom / three bath house; this was very much appreciated as our extended family consisted of five adults and two children. And now a bit of an apology. When we checked in, the office was open so I did not have to use the lock box. When we were leaving, it was very early in the morning and the office was closed. I did not realize that we had to use the lock box to return the keys; I thought it was a key drop. Well, anyway, I did not have the code so I was forced to wedge the keys between the entrance doors. Sorry for having to do that but we had to rush our daughter to the airport. Hopefully this was no problem. (You may want to consider a true key drop arrangement for key returns rather than the lock box......I can't believe that I would have been the only person with this same situation) Once again, thanks for making our stay in Kissimmee and our vacation at Disney an enjoyable experience.

Dear Jeff & Lori: The stay in Orlando was great. The accommodations were excellent and I am looking forward to using your properties for our stay again next year. Sincerely,
Darrell and Mattielean Gaines, Lawton, OK
Hello! And THANK YOU for providing a BEAUTIFUL HOME!! I forgot to complete the survey. Is it possible for you to email it to me? Because God willing, we plan to visit again next year and rent a home from you.
Peter Jezek, St. Laurent, Quebec
WE ENJOYED OUR STAY AND YOUR ACCOMADATIONS VERY MUCH AND HAVE ALREADY MENTIONED YOUR SERVICES TO ASSOCIATES AND FRIENDS. WE PLAN ON STAYING AT DREAM HOMES WHENEVER WE ARE IN THE ORLANDO AREA. I DID FORGET TO FILL IN THE SURVEY THAT WAS IN OUR WELCOME PACKET. BUT IF YOU SEND ME ONE ELECTRONICALLY IT WOULD BE MY PLEASURE. REGARD

The house was wonderful and perfect for our needs. I would be more than happy to fill out a survey if you can send one along. Kind Regards,
Dave Basile ADAMLAB, LLC, Troy, Mi
Jacquee: Thanks for the hospitality. We enjoyed our stay and look forward in returning to Florida soon. However, "soon" will not be here quickly. I did fill out a survey that I left at the home. I hope that it gets into your hands. Thanks again. Sincerely,
Kevin & Frances Mosley, Philadelphia, Pa
Hello Lance & Karin, We had the chance to visit Disney World again and I must say this time was better than all the other times that my family and I have visited Florida. Your establishment is well kept and reasonable. Since I returned home I have been recommending your establishment to family, friends and co-workers. My family and I had a wonderful time during the week that we stayed there, and I will use you in the future. I was curious to know if you are affilliated with any Dream Homes in Disney Land, California. Thank You,
Hilary Shemanski Senior Marketing Administrator QBeo Inc , North Bend, Wa
Jeff and Lori, We had a wonderful time staying at your home. It was a breath of fresh air when compared to all of us craming into hotel rooms on those business trips. Plus, we all got to know each other very well in that atmosphere. Not, to mention that I got that giant master suite to myself...that helped a lot. My only comment was that the pool was really cold, but we all forgot our swim-suits anyway. We'll definitely stay there next year, should we end up in the same city for PMA International again. In fact, all of our associates in the industry were jealous of our digs so we might need to book early. Thanks,
Hello Lance/Michelle... we just got back from Orlando yesterday...the house was GREAT!...we were all very impressed. I was writing to make sure that the key was returned(we left EARLY on Tuesday morning) and to possible look into becoming a DREAM HOMES rental agent. I'll be calling Lance sometime soon to get more information. Thank you all very much for everything!
Hi Donna, I had every intent on e-mailing you, to let you know that we had a wonderful time in Fla. and we really enjoyed the home; very spacious and clean and the kids really enjoyed the ideal that we had our own pool. Anyway keep me in mind in the future if you have any promotionals or anything that may come up, we might be interested!! Thanks
Rex Alexander I had a wonderful vacation summer thanks to you and your lovely houses. We really appreciate what you did for us. Thanks for the service we had at the office. That was the best vacation I ever had with my family and friends. Thank you.

Dear Mr. Boyer: I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance with my family’s reservation! The house was absolutely beautiful and we couldn’t have asked for anything more comfortable and beautiful!! The location alone was incredible. The rooms were very inviting and the decor was very elegant. This was our first experience renting a vacation home and needless to say this will not be the last!! Thanks again and we look forward to returning soon! Best Regards,

Dear Jeff & Lori, We were very happy with the home you arranged for us in Orlando (7902 Canary Palm Ct). it worked out perfectly for our trade show needs. In 2001, this trade show will be in Las Vegas. If you have homes available there (dates will probably be 11/27/01 thru 12/3/01), we will be interested in hearing about them. Thanks again,
Chris, Sherry, Madison West, Bonnie, Terry, Savannah Lacomb, Lisa and Alex Ely
MR. ALEXANDER, Thank you for a wonderful vacation. Everything was wonderful. We enjoyed the home best it was better than Disney. The quiet atmosphere and excellent accommodations allowed our family to spend quality time together. The only problem was the time was to short!!!!! The kids loved that part. Again thank you. We are going to Myrtle Beach or New York next year Got any homes there ? Many Thanks,
Barbara Van Brunt, Masillion, OH
Dear Jacquee: Thanks so much for your note. We had a wonderful vacation. The dream home was lovely and gave everyone the "space" they needed, even with 12 of us!!! I wrote quite a bit on the survey and I will get that in the mail to you. I've already shared with some friends what great accommodations dream houses provided. I made a few notes that will hopefully be helpful to you. Thanks again for all your help to make this rare opportunity extra special. Sincerely,
Bonnie Mock, Millville, De
JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW HOW HAPPY AND PLEASED WE WERE WITH THE HOUSE RENTAL FOR THE WEEK WE STAYED IN FLORIDA FOR MY GRANDDAUGHTER’S CHEERLEADING COMPETITION IN APRIL OF THIS YEAR. I HAVE RECOMMENDED YOU TO MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE PLANNING ON VISITING THAT AREA OF FLORIDA IN THE FUTURE. AGAIN, THANKS SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING.
Jacquee My sisters and I loved our stay at dream homes,they couldn't get over how nice the place was where we stayed at Pomo Dr. I knew it would be nice. Thanks for everything.
Pat Egidio, Southington, CT
Hi Lance, My name is Pat Egidio. I don't know if you remember me. We rented from Dream Homes last week. We stayed at 1025 Soaring Eagle. I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our vacation. The home was wonderful. This is our second time with Dream Homes and we were so happy again. We are planning on coming again to Florida in Feb. for a week or two. I will contact you when we get closer and secure the dates. Hopefully you will be able to accomodate us. One other reason that I am writing to you. My daughter in law told me today when we were having Thanksgiving Dinner together that when she was doing the laundry she accidentally packed two of the towels and one pillowcase that belonged to the house we rented. She accidentally put it in her suitcase.She is going to put them into the mail tomorrow and you should get them back next week. We are sorry about that. Again, I would like to say thank you for everything. Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving. Sincerely,
This is Greg's wife Tiffiny. First let me tell that the home was beautiful. With four children and my parents along, the home was big enough for the children to play in one area, while grandpa and grandma escaped to the master suite downstairs. While Tropical storm Gabrielle brought rain-late in the week-we made good use of the pool, and the location was excellent. Thank you again.
Rev. Robert Falkey, Milwaukee area
Dear Jeff & Lori, I would like to thank you for the excellent home you provided us with on our recent stay in DisneyWorld. I must admit that I was skeptical beforehand, but the home was all you advertized it to be, and an great value to boot! Feel free to use this e-mail in your advertizing. In fact, as a token of my appreciation, I would be willing to answer inquiries from people who want to talk to someone who has stayed at one of your properties. We only had one problem, which I can help you solve for others. Hy 192 is currently under repair, and the trip back and forth from Disney, or other attractions is very frustrating and time consuming--due to the road construction. Fortunately, I found a quick alternate route that others would greatly appreciate. Oceola Parkway is an excellent road that parallels Hy 192. However, the map does not show any road that connects to it, even though there is one. A few blocks east of Splendid China, Sherberth Road crosses Hy 192 (by the Union 76 gas station). Simply turn left on Sherberth, and this will take you to Oceola Parkway, which connects the Disney Animal Kingdom Resort to the other Disney Theme Parks. This is an excellent road, and will save those who stay with you much time and aggrivation. I sure wish I knew about this earlier, as I wasted over 1 hour sitting in traffic. I had a good map of the area too, but it did not show that Sherberth Road connects to Oceola Parkway. I hope you pass this information on to other vacationers, and thanks again for helping to make our vacation so enjoyable.
nadine shaffer and family.
dear lance and karin, we just wanted to tell you how lovely we found your home. my 3 sons got very spoiled with a pool just outside the living room doors. i would certainly recommend your agency to my friends planning a trip to florida. we just had one problem. we were in #7804 in the Indian Ridge development to the right side after turning onto Sand Hill Road. there was a cd player in one of the bedrooms and my son discovered in South Carolina that he left a Brittany Spears in the player. if the cleaning personnel have found it and turned it in would it be possible to return it to him via mail? he would greatly appreciate it if it is able to happen. everyone in the office was very personable and we found it most courteous that someone called to check that everything was satisfactory the night of your arrival ( i believe her name was Nikki). thank you for looking into the cd matter for me. sincerely,
Dear Lance, I recently stayed in a Dream home in June 2000. It was a beautiful home and very relaxing. After coming back to my home I wondered about possibly becoming an agent for Dream Homes. I told my family and friends about the homes and they were surprised that there were homes like yours available for rent. I would like to speak to you about becoming an agent can you tell me when you will be available to take my call. Respectfully,
Hi Jacquee, Thank you for answering all my questions so promptly. Because of your excellent customer service, I feel comfortable using your company. My husband should receive clearance this weekend for his vacation, so I will contact you to make the reservation. He is also thinking about maybe getting a house/villa with a pool in the backyard. I think he likes the quiet and privacy aspect. Do you have any of those available for 6/23 – 6/30? If not, we would still be happy with the condo 2/2. Thank you again,
Thank you........we really enjoyed our visit in your rental. We look forward to working with you again.
Dennis&Brenda Palmer, Columbiana, Oh
After spending all Saturday night on the Internet looking for a rental home we still were not sure. This is are first time renting a home. Denise made it very easy for our vacation house choice. She was so kind and understanding. Just wanted to let you know that Denise did a VERY FIND JOB... We can't wait to get to our AAA DREAM HOME.
Whitney A. Stallings, Columbas, Ms
Hello Donna; We arrived home safely, after our long drive, thanks for asking. Our experience with your home and company, was an excellent one. The home was very comfortable and the pool was great, my clients, co-workers and myself enjoyed the just as much as we enjoyed disney, in fact after a long day of walking at the parks, it was nice to go home to a house that we could unwind in. If we should need accommandations in Orlando in the future, I will be contact you for homes. Thank once again for your hospitality. Sincerely,
Hello Just wanted to let you know we really enjoyed our stay in our dream home..Do you have homes in any other part of the country. Also to thank your crew for returning my travelers check. Hope to visit again sometime.
O. Mendoza Jr., Perth Amboy, NJ
To: Lance, Once again I would like to thank you for helping me w/ these accommodations; it made our last few days in Florida very pleasing. You can rely on us to refer you to our friends & family back home. I left the oxygen converter & a few oxygen tanks outside the door; the pulmonary co. will be by to pick them up in the morning. Once again I thank you & your wife for your kindness. God Bless You
Jacquee, Sorry for the late response. Thank you for the email and we all appreciate your help before, during and after our stay in the dream homes. Every year another person moves on and we work with someone new at Dream Homes to help with our arrangements. I hope you will be around next year when it's time for all of us to return. I enjoyed working with you and appreciate your quick response to all of our requests. It's a shame the pool was an issue. I think going forward we are not going to worry about heating a pool at the house we stay at. Otherwise we had a ball. I'll be in touch in the fall to get ready for January 08 not unless some travel back that way comes up before then. I do have a few people that I have recommend they use Dream Homes instead of the rental companies they used this time. There were a lot of issues. I look forward to working with you again in the fall and hope we can bring business to Dream Homes for another six years if not more. Take care.
Craig Gardner, Birmingham, AL
Dear Lance & Karen, Just wanted to let you know that the house we rented last week was great. It was a little big for just the two of us (my son and daughter-in-law were supposed to come but canceled at the last minute) but it was nice having all the room to ourselves. The location couldn’t have been better. I do have one suggestion....get softer beds. The mattress in the master bedroom was a little too hard for my back, but we made do. Thanks again and maybe we’ll do it again next year.
