About Huguette and Jim Shouldice

We are both young at heart retirees who enjoy going to Disney, playing golf, eating out and relaxing by the pool.

Huguette and Jim Shouldice purchased this house in 2005

Why Huguette and Jim Shouldice chose Davenport

We chose this location because it is just a short distance to Disney, the area has dozens of challenging golf courses, and seemingly endless choices for shopping, dining out and recreational activities. Also, being only an hours drive from either coast, the Kennedy Space Centre (highly recommended), or to the Gulf coast beaches are within easy reach for day trips.

What makes this house unique

Although our home is close to the all the action, we love the peace and tranquility of our neighborhood. Especially after a busy day at the parks it is nice to get home to relax around the pool, or take the short walk to watch the sun set on Davenport Lake.

Great location for a Florida vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at his home. They have everything you need for a just bring you clothes vacation. The house has plenty of room for the family and the kitchen is stocked with every device you may need for the trip. The bedrooms are nice with closet space, great beds and the neighbor hood is nice and quiet and safe.

It is located near several shops and restaurants so it is a quick drive to everything you could want to do.

The pool was excellent and nice after a day at Disney.

The management company responds quickly to any needs you may have.

This has been the best rental on VRBO we have had and hope to use them again next year for our family getaway.

Great Experience

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great time at this home, it was very comfortable and we definitely recommend it to others. We traveled with our children and my parents and there was room for all. The kids really enjoyed the pool and the game room when we were home from the parks. There were plenty of pots, pans so cooking was easy. Publix and Walmart are minutes away which helped stocking up easy and quick. Drive to the parks was not a problem, about 30 minute drive in August. Master bedroom mattress may need to be replaced, you sink right in. Another thing, the central air in the master bedroom is not the same as the rest of the house. While the house can get fairly cool, the master bedroom stayed warm. These were minor things and overall we were all very happy we were able to bring our beagle with us. We would definitely stay again.

Thanks again for sharing your home!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments, We only wanted to respond to your two of your comments. First, about the bed in the master bedroom, we replaced the boxspring and mattress less than one year ago, it is probably a matter of preference, we do not like firm mattresses. We are also looking into why the master bedroom was not cool, this is the first time we have heard of a problem with the air conditioner not working properly. We are happy that you still enjoyed your stay in our home and we hope you will consider us the next ime you visit our area.

Amazing and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This home was so spacious clean and beautiful. My kids enjoyed their rooms and the pool was great. The location was so nice and quiet. Every where we went was 20-25 min away. Which is nothing to a newyorker. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience. Would love to come back again.

Great property with everything the Florida explorer needs to have a great family holiday.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely property that had everything we needed to have a base for our adventures while being quiet and peaceful at the times we wanted to chill. Good sized pool that the kids (and I) loved to play and cool off in. In reality the parks aren't just 10 mins away, typically the journey takes 20 - 30 mins but not a problem. Would strongly recommend the property as a great place to have your holiday.

Had a wonderful time at your vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation in your home. The grandkids went swimming in the pool a least once a day if not more. The house was very comfortable and plenty of room for us all. We also enjoyed playing pool in the garage. Walked down to lake a couple of times too. I would recommend going shopping at publix instead of super Walmart . It was like a mad house on that first weekend there reminded me of Black Friday . The publix is closer too I think. The property manager was available to answer my questions both times I called. The house was very close to the places we went Magic kingdom , Disney Hollywood , no trouble finding our way there. If we came back again we would definitely stay at this house again. The one thing negative I would say about our stay was in king bed in room with out bathroom had like o sink hole on one side of bed. My side was fine but my husband said his side was bad. But every thing else was great thanks for sharing your home .
