A real Home from Home!

Ideal floor plan and kitchen area with a great pool area and a covered porch/lanai, for that much needed shade in summer.

New in 2007, and only lightly rented out since, so in great shape, only 10 minutes from Disney, but not in busy, noisy, tourist area, ideally located for access to all areas, close to Champions Gate and the Omni Hotel, with two great Gregg Norman designed golf courses many other golf courses within a 15 minute drive.

Fantastic gated community, probably the best in the area, in a great neighborhood. Club house with pool and tennis courts. Close to supermarkets, drug store and restaurants only a five minute drive away.

Easy access to highway 27 North/south and the I4 west/East.

All in all ... perfect.

Good discounts for long term rentals, please ask for quotes

Keywords: new 4 bed, 3 bath House, with pool and spa, view of conservation, close to Disney.

About chris Hodgson

We are chris and Gill Hodgson with our two children Alison and Sophie, we live in the UK, Yorkshire, I like all sports, Golf football running etc, Gill likes to shop and drink red wine!

chris Hodgson purchased this house in 2007

Why chris Hodgson chose Davenport

After experiancing great holidays in Florida we decided there were few better places to spend quality time, the great climate, and general high quality of service mixed with a relaxed atmosphere and so many fun things to do. It was somewhere we could enjoy as a family together so we took the plunge and bought a home, we looked at about 30 across the region but chose ours for the great new community and the tranquil view from the pool and spa across the conservation area.

What makes this house unique

A true home from home we find it extremely relaxing, but love the exitement of the attractions.

Hit the Jackpot!

  • 5 of 5

After 8 years of renting in this area we finally found the perfect spot. The house was amazing. Just the right size and spotless. It had a very homey feel and a wonderful outlook to a conservation area. Watched the sand cranes, herons and all sorts of birds enjoying the natural surroundings. The alcove by the pool was wonderful to sit, giving us privacy and shade. The Shire is beautifully maintained! Management was great and were quick to resolve any issues. We enjoyed our walks at Celebration, Disney Springs, Disney Boardwalk and Lake Louisa National Park. All within easy distance. We also recommend a day trip to Mount Dora, north of Apopka. Pool and spa were fantastic after a day out. Both the owner Chris and the Florida Store management were easily reached to answer any questions.

The best yet!

Thanks Chris for the opportunity to enjoy your little slice of paradise!

Looking forward to returning.

Perfect in Every Way!!

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband and 2 teenage girls stayed at the villa in March for 2 weeks as a base for Disney. It was immaculately clean, well furnished and is definitely a luxury villa. Everything you could need, it was quiet, no traffic noise, only 15 mins drive to Disney and close to Publix supermarket, Papa John's, Subway and Macdonalds. The wifi was a blessing too having 2 teenagers.......and it was super fast. The pool and jacuzzi area was just lovely, the pool heating was a perfect temperature and it was great to relax in the jacuzzi after a busy day at the parks. We requested a late check-out as we had a late flight, this was no problem. Great communication from the moment I made my initial enquiry. I would definitely recommend this villa and I will be booking again when we return to Orlando! Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home x

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa for 2 weeks and loved every minute. The decor and furniture were top class and we felt like we were living in luxury! A very quiet area perfect for after a long day at the parks. My favourite room was the master bedroom with the huge bed and beautiful big en-suite.

We would definitely return.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We felt at home right away, and were very pleased with the cleanliness of the house. It was a perfect retreat from the excitement and attractions of Orlando while still being very convenient to everything. The neighborhood was very quiet with almost no traffic. Comfortable beds and the pool and patio area was very relaxing. The only things we didn't have was access to the clubhouse and internet service. We hope to stay here again in the future! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting Orlando.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I just returned from our vacation at this house. We had a fantastic time. The house is everyting we hoped for. There were 4 adults and 3 kids in our party and the house had plenty of space for all of us. The house is in a great location. Close to the interstate and within 20 minutes of most vacation attractions (Disney, Sea World, shopping, etc). The house had everything we needed and was in a great community. We felt extra safe being in a gated community. The pool was not that warm (1st week of April), but there is the option to pay for heat. Other travelers mentioned not being happy with the results after paying for heat, so we opted not to have it heated and deal with the cooler temperature. One thing I was expecting was the option to hang out at the clubhouse, but we were not provided with the key for this amenity. Not sure if that was something we needed to arrange ahead of time or not? All in all, we had a great time while staying here! The owner is great to deal with and answered several questions I had before our vacation via email in a timely manner. We will definitely come back and will also recommend this house to others!

This beautiful home is in an amazing location. We would like to say that it is exactly as the photos show if not nicer. Clean, with stunning decor and evrything you need is provided. The pool is beautiful and a big plus. Close to Champion Gate and a very easy drive to all attractions and shopping. This home is very comfortible and very well laidout. When we first came in we felt immediately at home. Chris thank you for making the booking so easy. The management company were really helpful and easy to deal with. We would be there now if it were not for illness. We are already looking forward to returning in 2012
