About John and Sue Conrad

While we love living near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, we purchased this home because we would like to spend the winters in Florida after retirement (a few years out). (The PA winters can be cold and snowy). This is the only vacation home we own. We love our home maintain it to a high standard. We also decided to let others share our home to help us with some of the costs.

John and Sue Conrad purchased this villa in 2008

Why John and Sue Conrad chose Davenport

As previously mentioned, we maintain our home to a high standard. We also try to price the rates so that it is less expensive than 2/3 of the comparable homes so that it is affordable to the average family on vacation.

What makes this villa unique

We are a unique blend of closeness to Disney (8 miles from Animal Kingdom) and being far enough away from Disney to be in a quiet neighborhood that is reasonable in cost.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for offering your home so that others can enjoy Florida. It is so spacious and afforded us the opportunity to enjoy evenings in the pool and playing games with friends. It had been a wonderful week - beautiful weather! Thanks,

Wonderful villa

  • 4 of 5

This holiday home was excellent, it had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. Having spent 3 weeks here it truly was a home from home. Would like to thank Gary the property manager for answering any questions we had and also providing us with things which made our stay even better (plastic table wear for the kids and a clothes airer) would definitely recommend your home, thanks for having us. Lisa and family xx

2012 Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful experience staying at this beautiful home, my youngest loved the pool, and my teenagers loved the game room. It's close to the parks and attractions but also far enough for some peace and quiet which I really enjoyed after a busy day at the park. The house is well maintained and very clean.

We would recommend this house for your vacation you will not be disappointed! We will stay here again when we visit Florida.

Great R&R with our soldier.....

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the use of your home. Everything was ready for us with a late arrival (1am) where we were able to go right to bed. My husband was on his R&R and this home gave us plenty of privacy and quiet. Our youngest enjoyed the pool more than any of the parks. The management used was outstanding on answering any questions we had. The house was large enough to allow us to have some individual quiet and then the space to all come together to make some family memories. We were met with ease on reserving this home and it lived up to what was advertised. If we come back in the area we definitely will look at renting this home again. It was close enough to the attractions still allowing our personal privacy and space. We wanted to be close to things but also have a place to get away from the hustle and bustle and this home allowed for that. There are great restaurants and shopping fairly close by (close is relative to us we're from Alaska). Again, thank you so much for the ease of the rental, the outstanding management you have, and for allowing us the use of your home. We so appreciate it.

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent week in this villa, situated within easy reach of Disney and the I4 to Universal. A very short drive to local shops and restaurants. We really liked the extra touches and the themed bedrooms and our children really enjoyed the games room. The local manager was friendly and helpful and we would recommend this villa.

A wonderful home for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from our second stay at this wonderful vacation property. The house is exactly as described by the owners, and is meticulously clean and well-maintained. We have found the owners as well as their local property managers to be delightful to deal with throughout. Our children appreciate the themed bedrooms and actually asked for some "days off" from Disney (which they also love) so they could spend more time enjoying the heated pool, video games/dvd player and the fully equipped indoor games room. While the house is a bit of a drive from the theme parks (check a local map if that is a concern), all amenities are nearby. We would definitely rent the house again and would recommend it to friends. It compares very favorably to other rentals we have seen in the area and is excellent value for money.

WORSE VACATION HOME!!!!!

  • 1 of 5

DO NOT STAY @ THIS VACATION HOME. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND KEEP ON DRIVING. ITS FAR FROM THE PARKS AND THERE ARE NO CLOSE SHOPPING CENTERS. IF YOU DO STAY TAKE BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES BECAUSE THE MANAGERS ARE SNEAKY AND THEY WOULD TRY TO MAKE YOU PAY FOR DAMAGES THAT THE HOUSE ALREADY HAS. THE HOUSE DOES NOT HAVE YOUR BASIC HOUSEHOLD ITEMS AND THE GAME-ROOM IS FALLING APART. THEY HAVE HIDDEN FEE FOR EXCESS GARBAGE, CLEANING, LAUNDRY JUST TO NAME A FEW. AND THE FEES ARE OUTRAGEOUS......ALL I CAN SAY IS TAKE PITURES OF EVERYTHING!!!!

Owner's Response: We plan to spend our winters in FL after retirement, so we purchased this home as a second home, not a business. We truly enjoy it and maintain it to a high standard because that is the way we enjoy things. We had decided that we would like to share it with others. We only hope that visitors will treat our home as their own. So it really hurt and angered us when these folks trashed our home. Their New Year’s Eve party was so loud, it caught the attention of the next door neighbor (a friend who is a fellow homeowner, who happened to be in his home that New Year’s Eve, and it was he who called our manager). The mess and damage they left behind was so bad that their deposit was way insufficient for the mess/damage inflicted. The fact that they had to pay for their damage, was no doubt was the inspiration for this vicious review. Do people not take responsibility for their actions anymore??? Our home is 1 mile from the closest shopping center and 8 miles (12 driving minutes) to the closest Disney Park (Animal Kingdom). I suppose it might be long walk. Please look to our other reviews for honest information.
