Overview

Davenport House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to our 2nd home. Oakpoint is a residential community offering peace and tranquility where you can relax after a hard day at the theme parks. Situated off Old Lake Wilson Road which winds it way through the golf courses of Reunion (designed by Tom Watson & Jack Nicklaus) and leads directly to Highway 192 gateway to the theme parks and restaurants.

Just minutes from junction 58 off Interstate 4, 10 minutes to Disney. 1 junction south of World Drive with easy access to all other major attractions. The nearby Champions Gate complex features 2 x 18 hole championship courses designed by Greg Norman, a large Publix Supermarket, and a selection of restaurants and shops.

Personally furnished to a very high standard. You cannot fail to be impressed by the over-sized pool area. Custom designed, fully screened, electrically heated, 32’ x 16’ pool, with large spa. The extended deck area surrounding the pool makes it possible to position the comfortable padded sun loungers and chairs anywhere you wish, not just in one position where the sun is! You can relax and take advantage of the Florida sunshine throughout the day.

A covered outdoor lanai measuring 20’ x 14’ provides shade for those that want it! Complete with light, roof fan, dining table and chairs, this is the ideal place to enjoy those ‘al fresco’ meals. Music can be piped through to the pool area via the outdoor speakers, if you wish.

A large, privately enclosed rear garden is complemented by the wooden decking complete with additional table and chairs. An extra space to relax and soak up the Florida sunshine, without getting splashed!

About Gill & Gary Makin

With 2 sons and 4 Grandchildren (2 boys & 2 girls) our lives are always busy! We enjoy spending time with the family and having fun. Our relaxation comes from holidays and we like to visit various countries experiencing the different cultures.

Gill & Gary Makin purchased this house in 2000

Why Gill & Gary Makin chose Davenport

We travelled on holiday to Florida and stayed in hotels/timeshare a few times, until we finally rented a property with friends on Oakpoint. We had already been 'bitten' by the Florida bug and was the reason we kept returning. We decided to look at buying a property ourselves and having stayed on Oakpoint, knew just how convenient it was to all the theme parks. We loved the location and were pleased to find building still going on at the development. We were able to built to our own specification, alter plans to include an extra large pool area, giving us just what we wanted! We love spending time there relaxing round the pool! We don't do the theme parks as much now, but with 4 small grandchildren, when they are on holiday with us, its all about the theme parks!!

What makes this house unique

The location is just so convenient for shops and restaurants. You get to meet our neighbours who are always pleased to see returning friendly faces! Oakpoint is ideally placed for playing at either of the 2 local prestigious golf courses - Championsgate or Reunion.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just had an amazing two weeks at Gill and Gary's villa! The accommodation was first class for two families holidaying together. All amenities were within easy reach and the villa was only a short drive from the Disney Parks. We chose a combination of eating out and self catering making use of the BBQ. The kitchen had a full range of utensils for those wishing to eat at home. Our daughters and niece made full use of the swimming pool as did the adults. All in all this was the trip of a lifetime. Thanks to Gill and Gary for the tips and phone calls checking we had arrived safely and everything was to our satisfaction. We would highly recommend this accommodation.

We recently enjoyed a 2 week stay at this lovely villa. There were 8 of us in total and due to the size and layout of the villa we all had our own privacy and plenty room not to be getting in each others way. All the rooms are a good size, all were very clean and well presented.

The pool was a big hit with the kids who loved jumping straight in first thing in the morning!!

We used the outdoor tables for dining and there was plenty space for all 8 of us to sit and enjoy our breakfast before heading out for a hectic day round the theme parks.

The villa is ideally located for access to all the Disney parks and for getting to Universal. There is a supermarket and petrol station less than 5 minutes away with a good selection of restaurants also within easy driving distance.

This villa will always hold special memories for us as we got married in Orlando whilst on this holiday......seems like a good excuse to return to celebrate our anniversaries!

The perfect vacation home for a family or couple

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 daughters and myself thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful home. The decor was that of a model home yet it was cozy. It was very well maintained and clean. The home lacked nothing that we needed.

Our daughters enjoyed the pool day and night. We BBQed our dinner 2 nights and ate outside under the covered patio, a real luxury for us .

The beds were so comfortable that I think we are in the market for new beds :) the kitchen was fully equiped. We enjoyed nightly movies on the gi-Mormons TV from the large collection of movies they offered.

We have nothing negative to say about this home; it felt like home to us.

I spoke to Gill several times prior to our arrival and she called while we we there just to make sure everything was fine. She was more than accomodating.

Thank you Gill and Gary for offering your lovely home for renters, it made our vacation a wonderful experience. We will recommend your home to friends & family. & would rent it again without question .

Owner's Response: Thanks for your wonderful comments Annette. We are really pleased we were able to make your well deserved holiday a success. I know when we spoke the whole family had enjoyed the pool - hope the kids got some good photos of Shamu! You never know, maybe next time you will get to use the golf clubs too! Gill & Gary

This was our fifth year staying here. Clean home - well furnished with well stocked kitchen and linen closet - plenty of room and privacy. Great pool and big lania. Close to Disney, golf courses and restaurants. Owners friendly - checked with us to make sure we had everything we needed. Would recommend this great home for families and friends.
