Beautiful spacious 6 bedroom/ 5 bathroom villa, with many 5-star reviews, with its own fully screened private pool and games room, 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 and large pool deck, sleeps up to 12 guests 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, tourist attractions and golf courses 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 approximately 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 stereo, where guests can spend time relaxing after a busy day at the theme parks, golf courses or the shopping malls! You will also find a wide range of DVD's, for both adults and children together with 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 adjacent to the good sized kitchen, which overlooks the lanai and the landscaped garden. There is also a breakfast bar with 2 bar stools.

The kitchen, which is fitted with quality Corian counter tops, is very well equipped for guests who prefer to cook and eat 'at home' . It has all the usual large appliances - a cooker, microwave, dishwasher, waste disposal unit and large fridge/freezer with chilled water and ice dispenser. There is also a coffee machine, blender, hand mixer, toaster, etc.....

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 new Games Room has just been completed and consists of a top quality 7 ft slate pool table and a foosball.

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 coloured 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 further 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, one with a King sized bed and the other with a Queen bed. Each Master bedroom has a large walk in shower, jacuzzi bath, double washbasin and w.c. Both master bedrooms have a TV.

There are 2 further en-suite bedrooms, with their own bathroom that has a 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. The pool and spa are illuminated at night time. There are 2 large tables with chairs for outdoor entertaining, as well as sun loungers - 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.

Why Susan Hillman chose Davenport

Our fully alarmed home is located in a pretty gated community in close proximity to all the major attractions including Disney, SeaWorld and Universal, water parks, as well as shopping malls, cinemas.... the list is endless!! It is also an easy 1 hour drive to the beautiful beaches of the east and west coast. There are 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, living room and a new Games Room with top quality 7ft slate pool table and foosball downstairs and a total of 8 TV's and free Wi-Fi. There are 5 bathrooms as well as a dedicated laundry room. We have our own fully screened private swimming pool and lanai with plenty of space for 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.

Disney Fun

  • 5 of 5

Party of 10 just returned from two weeks out in Florida - and no one wanted to come back !

The Villa is a perfect location for all of the Disney and Universal parks, and our group of 10 were very comfortable in this Vista Park property.

I must say that the photo's really don't do it justice as there was ample space for all and I certainly would recommend coming back again, and again.........................

Local facilities were a short drive away and very easy to find - so all in all cant really speak highly enough of it !

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from an amazing 3 week stay in this great villa. Our whole family loved staying here. The owners are such lovely, helpful and genuine people who went out of their way to answer any queries we had regarding our holiday which we had before we went. The villa had everything you could possibly need and was so clean and comfortable. My 4 year old niece would ask to come back home from Disney parks so she could go swimming in the pool ! It's in a great location to get to all of the parks. We couldn't have asked for better. If we were going back to Florida, we would definitely choose here again.

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!
