Just outside the screened pool area is the recently laid patio area featuring our Orange tree which is often laden with fruit, if the fruit is ripe just enjoy. This year we have added on the opposite side of the pool a further new pato area which has a patio set with umbrella i f you wish a BBQ can be hired from our Manager for a reasonable fee.

Prior to arrival, all our guests will receive a guest information booklet which provides them with specific details about the villa, general information about Florida, distances to attractions and some other key points. Further Orlando information including local attractions and shopping malls can be found in the villa in the leaflet holder. The villa has keyless entry which means that all our guests have direct entry and there is no need to stop en-route to pick up any keys. On arrival there will be a small welcome pack containing toiletries amongst other things for the convenience of our guests after a long journey.
Additional Services: All guests can have access to a SatNav for a nominal charge. A range of grocery starter packs (Bronze, Silver and Gold) are available upon request for our guests on arrival.

Safety features: The villa is fully fitted with the requisite number of carbon monoxide detectors, smoke alarms and fire extinguishers to ensure our guests are safe during their stay. For additional safety, and as required by Florida Law, the three access areas to the pool have been fitted with mains wired pool alarms to ensure that the children cannot access the pool area without your knowledge.
Guarantee: We can guarantee that all the photos that have been placed on the advertisement are a true reflection of our villa and we take pride in ensuring that the villa remains at an exceptional standard for all our guests. We have been very fortunate to have many guests repeatedly return to what they consider to be 'a home away from home that provides a welcoming haven from the busy parks'. We can guarantee that every one of our reviews has been genuinely submitted by past guests who have taken the time to give their independent thoughts and feelings on what has been a fabulous stay.
Distances to the attractions: As you will see from the advertised properties for holiday rentals many state they are a short distance from Disney and sometimes people within the vicinity of our location do tend to underestimate the time that it takes to get from their property to Disney. We can assure all potential guests that our villa is located in Zone A which is the same zone as Disney itself and the only way that you could get any closer is to stay on Disney property. We have driven to Disney many times and enjoy the drive, you can decide where you wish to eat that evening when passing the numerous restaurants. It takes between 5 to 10 minutes, including the traffic to actually get onto Disney owned property via the Animal Kingdom entrance (Black Lake Road). Our estate can be accessed via the first entrance on your left after leaving Highway US192.

I was born and brought up in Yorkshire. After completing my degree at University I pursued my ambition to join the Royal Air Force. I joined in 2001 as a Logistics Officer and thoroughly enjoy the lifestyle and fast pace. I am currently completing my Masters Degree within the Force. I still go home to Yorkshire and enjoy quite a hectic social life.
Donna purchased this villa in 2004
Why Donna chose Davenport Lakes
Having spent several holidays in a villa on this estate I had no hesitation when I decided to buy a villa in looking for one on this estate. I was more than delighted when I found just the one for me, a beautiful location in an area I knew, as a previous holiday maker, to be just perfect for everything I wanted in a holiday, shops, dining and of course all the attractions and most of all close to the Magic of Disney being the first turn off at the top of the 192. Having spent many holidays since this 90's in this area I have seen it grow and take steps forward in what it has to offer the holiday maker. Another added bonus is that it has many permanent residents which gives a greater sense of security, you also get a better feel for the American way of life.
What makes this villa unique
The first welcome sight is that of the bench in the front porch area. A perfect spot to sit and soak up the atmosphere. On entering the villa the space is quite striking, so much of it. The pool area is one of my favourite spots, it also has the benefit of an under cover seating area and is very private. A great benefit is the games room, just the spot to relax after the parks. When we go to the villa we are always doing something - decorating, changing things around just as you do at home. Without a doubt I see the villa as my second home and treat it as such. We have welcomed many guests, many have returned several times because they feel so comfortable and at home.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed at your beautiful home for a short visit. Loved the pool for water exercises. The new patio area and BBQ facilities is a fabulous addition from our last stay. We do appreciate everything the home has for our convenience. The housekeeper, Petra, has a natural and wonderful way of making people feel welcome. Thanks for letting us stay in your wonderful home Donna and we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!
