Skeeter and Sandy were childhood sweethearts. But went their separate ways after high school, marrying different spouses. Both were widowed and many years later re-connected, married and combined their families. Total of 6 children, 5 in-laws & 16 grandchildren, and one great grandchild. Skeeter sold & retired from his construction business (P & C Construction, Chattanooga TN) in 2008. On a visit to Florida that same year, purchased their first Aviana Resort villa and named it Skeeter's Vacation Villa (HomeAway #234821). In January 2013 they purchased the villa next door, and of course it had to be named - 'Sandy's Vacation Villa' , HomeAway #3537465, also a 6 bedroom 4 1/2 bath. We sold this villa in 2017, and its no longer on the rental program!
Skeeter purchased this House in 2008
Why Skeeter chose Loughman
For many years we have rented vacation homes in the Disney area, as well as ocean front home in Panama city and Cape San Blas area. We were getting close to retirement age, and thought why not try it on our own. Since we have a big family, we needed a large home. Disney area is so exciting to the grandchildren, and We truly enjoy 'family and friend get-togethers'. Aviana was a gated resort, yet seem like a quite country setting, even though Davenport was so close to the Disney & Orlando attractions. Thus Skeeter's Villa was created, an hope all our guest enjoy it as much as our families and friends.
What makes this House unique
Skeeter's villa is a large beautifully decorated two story home with high ceilings. It can accommodate large groups, or several small families and or friends. You don't feel crowded with the high ceiling and open spaces from the first and second floors. The beautiful private pool is not overlooked by another home, but has a rear conservation area. There are shrubs on each side for added privacy. A great place to relax with family and friends!

Great size for large families
We had a group of 11 (6 adults and 5 children) and had plenty of rooms! Never had to fight over the bathroom. Pool area was wonderful and large and the water temp was perfect! Close to everything we wanted to see and visit. Groceries were close by as well. Skeeter was very easy to work with and gave us all the necessary information prior to arrival. Check-in was smooth. I would recommend this house for large groups. Plenty of area to be together, but also enough to spread out and have some privacy, too.
Thank you Andrea, for the great review. We are so glad you enjoyed your visit to Disney Area and your stay at "Skeeter's Villa"! We welcome you back anytime.
Regards, Skeeter & Sandy
Great villa for a large family!
We had a great time at Skeeters Villa! Our family of 8 adults and 6 kids stayed for 2 weeks and never felt crowded.
Amazing hospitality before, during and after our stay from the owners. We can highly recommend this villa!

it was great
Fun, Fun, Fun
We had a wonderful time at your home. Spacious and rooms for everyone. The grandkids always want to get back early from the parks so they can enjoy the pool. Appreciate the expansion of the seating area around the pool as well. We will be looking forward to going back the next time we head to Florida. Thank you so much for sharing your place with us.
The larger pool deck is a nice addition, especially for BBQ grilling, outside eating and relaxing. We are so glad we could accommodate your vacation to the Disney area again. You and your family were wonderful guest! We welcome you back anytime.

Beautiful House, great hosts and great location
We have stayed in Skeeter's house for several years when we bring our Track & Field team to Florida from Nova Scotia for Spring Training. We stay 2 weeks each time and the accommodations are excellent.
The house is well equipped and nicely furnished with a lovely pool area. Lots of room and never feel crowded even with up to 10 teenagers.
The gated community is wonderful - has a great club house with gym, pool etc.
Close to everything you want to experience in Orlando (theme parks, shopping, etc).
The owner's are wonderful to deal with the property management company they have locally taking care of things are quick to respond if there is ever an issue.
Highly recommend staying in this lovely home.
Hey Canada, Thanks for the wonderful review!! So glad you chose our villa many years ago . We appreciate your business each year and treasure your friendship! Hope to see you again in 2018. You are always welcome!!
