Overview

Davenport Villa Rental Photos and Description

Five Star 6 bed/5 bath villa in Gated Community, Pool, 55" TV, Wi-Fi sleeps 12,

Beautiful spacious 6 bedroom/ 5 bathroom villa, with many 5-star reviews, has its own private pool, and is set in landscaped surroundings situated on the exclusive gated Vista Park only 15 minutes from Disney attractions.

The large, spacious 3,300 sq. ft. Villa with private fully screened pool, sleeps 12 and has been furnished to the highest standard. It is FULLY ALARMED for your security and peace of mind. It can comfortably accommodate families vacationing together or those who simply wish to enjoy a little more space and luxury in beautiful landscaped surroundings. It is the perfect location from which to visit all the major theme parks and tourist attractions and is also only a few minutes drive to restaurants and supermarkets. The Disney attractions are an easy 15 minutes drive away and SeaWorld, Aquatica and Universal are approximately 20 minutes away. In approximately one hour you can drive to the Atlantic ocean or the beautiful beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Within an hour's drive of Orlando there are more than 150 superb golf courses. Ten minutes drive away is Champions Gate International and National 18 hole courses, both designed by Greg Norman.

Located just off the US highway 27, just 1 mile south from the Junction with the US Highway 192, the villa is around half an hour's drive from Orlando International Airport and one hour's drive from Sanford Airport,

The house is furnished to the highest standard and entry is through imposing double doors into an entrance hallway with an Italian marble floor. This leads directly into the very spacious family room, with 55' TV, DVD player and hi-fi. Spend time relaxing after a busy day at the theme parks or the shopping malls! You will also find a stereo and lots of CDs covering a wide taste in music.

A breakfast nook, furnished with glass table and 4 chairs, overlooks the lanai and pool deck, and for the occasional formal meal there is a beautiful separate dining room located next to the kitchen which also overlooks the lanai and the landscaped garden. For even more informal meals there is a breakfast bar with 2 bar stools.

The kitchen is very well equipped for those guests who prefer to cook and eat 'at home' and it is also fitted with quality Corian counter tops. It has a cooker, microwave, dishwasher, waste disposal unit and large fridge/freezer with chilled water and ice dispenser.

A cosy living room, with comfortable sofa and armchair, together with another tv, is the perfect place to curl up quietly and read a book or watch television.

A separate laundry room with a washing machine and tumble dryer is situated on the ground floor. An ironing board and iron is also provided. We also keep a good supply of towels in the closet here for use by the pool.

A spacious bathroom on the ground floor consists of a walk in shower, double washbasin and w.c.

Upstairs there is a total of 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, all of which radiate from the beautiful galleried landing. For two families who are sharing this beautiful spacious vacation home there are 2 Master en-suite Bedrooms, each with a large walk in shower, jacuzzi bath, double washbasin and w.c. Both master bedrooms have a TV.

There are 2 further junior en-suite bedrooms, each with a 'jack and jill' bathroom, with shower above the bath, washbasin and w.c. Each of these large bedrooms also has a TV.

The remaining 2 bedrooms each contain 2 twin-size beds. Again, both have a TV.

A crib with a mattress, bedding and high chair is available free of charge. Additional baby equipment is also available on request.

Outside is a fully screened pool with a large pool deck and covered lanai. There are 2 large tables with chairs for outdoor entertaining, as well as sun loungers which are ideal for those who wish to relax and enjoy the Florida sunshine. A gas grill/bbq is available on request (additional cost) for those outdoor meals by the poolside. There is no need to clean the grill/bbq. It arrives fully cleaned ready for use on your day of arrival and removed at the end of your stay for deep cleaning.

About Susan Hillman

We are an English family who love to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather Florida has to offer. We visit 2 - 3 times a year and ensure that our home is well maintained for ourselves and our guests many of whom like to return each year.

Susan Hillman purchased this villa in 2004

Why Susan Hillman chose Disney / Orlando

Our fully alarmed home is located in a pretty gated community in close proximity to all the major attractions including Disney, SeaWorld and Universal. It is also an easy 1 hour drive to the beautiful beaches of the east and west coast. There are also many restaurants and shops nearby. For the golfers in the family there are many good golf courses an easy drive away.

What makes this villa unique

Our home, with many 5-star reviews, is perfect for those who enjoy a luxurious vacation in the pretty gated surroundings of Vista Park or alternatively, for families vacationing together as we have 2 master bedrooms and 2 junior ensuite bedrooms, plus 2 twin bedrooms. There is a family room and a living room downstairs and a total of 8 TV's and free Wi-Fi. We have our own fully screened private swimming pool with plenty of space and sun loungers on our large pool deck to enjoy some sunshine or even to relax under the shady lanai, and enjoy a barbeque and meal outdoors.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Home safe and sound yesterday lunch-time after a really fabulous holiday again, we had just the best time ever there. The weather was glorious (plus some incredible rain and lightning storms), and the villa was perfect as ever. The kids loved the pool, and had at least an hour in it every day – and more when us boys had our five rounds of golf (7:00 tee-offs, so back before lunch-time and the kids spent the whole mornings in the pool).

We certainly would not stay anywhere else other than your villa, it is just perfect for us.

The property was great there is enough space

  • 5 of 5

The property was great we all enjoyed the room and the accommodations. This was our 1st time renting a house and we will do it again with friends and family. The weather was great for the pool no heater needed, The kitchen was stocked but the glass cutting board was very noisy when cutting up things. I love cooking and I would never buy a glass board plastic or wood are a lot better and they wont ruin your knifes.

Two issues

the down stairs area never would cool off it stayed warm down stairs

The bed comforters in the double and the twin rooms should be upgraded they are old.

We loved the place and hope to return

Owner's Response: Hi Christopher, Thank you for taking the time to review our home. I'm pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay and we look forward to you returning in the future. In response to your points raised: - the glass cutting boards are left out for those who do not cook, simply to protect the counter tops. There are many plastic cutting boards in the cupboards. -The air conditioning is set by the management company to a temperature suitable for the time of year. You would have been welcome to call them to check the temperature and maybe lower it by a few degrees to a more suitable level for yourself and your family. -Regarding the comforters, I will ask our management company to check them, however, I would confirm that all bed linen including comforters and bedspreads are cleaned and replaced regularly and when required. Thank you again for your comments. Susan

Another wonderful stay at the villa.

  • 5 of 5

This was the sixth time we have stayed at the villa, and it seems to get better every time. We had a wonderful stay again, with my grandchildren saying it was just like going back to a special home for them.

The quality and standard of the villa is excellent and seems to get better year-on-year. We really have no moans at all, no matter how small, and are talking already of going back there again next year.

I always strongly recommend the villa to friends, and two different sets of their families have booked up to go there. I would not recommend it to such good friends if the villa was not so good.

The jewel of rental villas

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is a real jewel. Worth every star.

Lot of space inside and a wonderful pool area.

We found the Villa absolutely clean and proper upon arrival. You don't have to bring anything to this well maintained Villa.

The location is in the middle of everything. Close to all the theme parks and just an hour both to the west and the east coast. The contact with the owner was excellent. When we had some questions of what so ever, we got assistance at once. This is the place to stay when visiting Florida. We will highly recommend this proper Villa to everyone, but be careful about everything because we will return to this superb Florida Villa. For sure. Thank you Mrs Hillman for letting us use your house. Our 5 weeks vacation passed very quickly. That was sad….but not the Villas fault. :o)

Fantastic House - Great Location for Disney World!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this fantastic house over the Christmas and New Year period. The property is a very large and spacious house in immaculate condition. It is very well equipped and all bedrooms are of a good size. There is a vast open plan lounge/dinette/kitchen area and a further large lounge and dining room. All bathrooms/ensuites are well equipped and a good sized laundry room. The Owner has very kindly provided a large selection of DVD's, CD's and X Box with games. Cable TV and WIFI were also available at no extra charge which we found most useful. It has a lovely heated swimming pool with more than ample poolside furniture. It is in a great location for all the Disney attractions. There is a Publix supermarket less than 5 minutes drive away and Walmarts 10 minutes drive also. There are lots of places to eat just a short drive away. We would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative and would love to revisit this property again!

Our best Florida lodging experience in 10 years

  • 5 of 5

A lovely and spacious villa, clean and tidy. 7 bedrooms (4 large master bedrooms with ensuite bath). Modern appliances including a Jenn-Air on the pool-side terrace. Friendly and attentive communications by email with owner Susan Hillman. Located less than 20 minutes from the most interesting golf courses in the Orlando area. Best choice for a family visit to Disney or a golf holiday. No fooling around next year. We'll just get back there.

Luxurious & immaculately presented Holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

January 2014 represented our 3rd consecutive stay at this fantastic holiday rental. The property is extremely well maintained and always immaculately presented. The villa’s layout/number of bedrooms (4 of which are King or Queen each with en-suite) makes it the perfect property for us as a larger group and provides every conceivable amenity you could need or want. The location also caters extremely well for the golfers, shoppers and attraction lovers between us. The Property Owners and local Management Team surpass our expectations every year in terms of their professionalism from point of enquiry through to attentiveness to our needs throughout our stay

We have enjoyed many memorable times at this villa from family time spent around the fantastic pool to milestone birthdays and marriage celebrations. All of which has been made even more special due to our luxury surroundings. Overall I would not hesitate to recommend this property to any of my friends or extended family and we very much look forward to our next visit to Florida and our stay at our ‘home from home’ in Davenport.
