About David Morgan

Hello my name is David Morgan , born in Dundee Scotalnd with a Welsh surname : ) but spent most of my life in London . Recently retired I am now living my dream and that includes owning a gorgeous 5 bedroomed villa in Davenport Orlando. Having spent many a happy holiday in various locations in the USA I finally decided on buying a property in Florida with a buisines partner to help enjoy my retirement.I spent six weeks visiting every furniture store in Orlando and the surrounding area to furnish the property , trying to make it as unique ,differant from all the other villas and a great place for people to stay at during their vacations, and judging by the comments received from many of the guests , all my efforts were a success . I am extreemly proud of my lovely vila , I am genuine and honest and anyone making a booking with myself will not be dissapointed in their choice of '537 Simply The Best'

Why David Morgan chose Davenport

Close proximity to Disney ,local shopping etc , approx 70 miles to the West and East Florida coast beaches, the villa is set in a tranquil location over looking a conservation area .

Guestbook comments from the manager

Review Copied from a Review Posted on my FaceBook Page by A Guest

Robert Hallyburton – 5 star

Having just returned from Florida yesterday I thought I would leave a wee review of our stay at 537.

We stayed at for 12 nights (6 Adults 4 kids and a toddler aged 2) there was plenty of room for all of us and the pool was the main destination for the kids each night we returned from the parks. Our son, Daniel loved the amount of space there was to run around in and his favourite spot was on the single chair in the living room watching sesame street

We were initially worried about keeping an eye on Daniel (2) getting into the pool by himself but we needn’t have worried as the pool door is alarmed when it opens and there is a protective fence around the pool and we made sure all the kids were closing the door every time they went in an out of it.

The villa is ideally located for all the Disney parks and to be honest was well located for all the major parks with only the Space Centre taking just over a hour to get to.

We had a couple of mishaps with lost passports and a kid locked in the car so to return to such a lovely villa and pool after such a stressful time was welcome relief.

David and the MC used for the villa were easily contactable and quick to response to any questions we had. I preferred to contact via email using the Wi-Fi available and David always got back to me promptly. David also managed to get very reasonable rates for car hire through Alamo.

When we arrived there were welcome packs for all the kids, which was a nice touch that the kids really appreciated.

So in summary, if you’re looking for a great, well equipped, spacious and comfortable villa, ideally located for all the major parks and representing great value for money, 537 should be your choice.

Great vacation villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a 3week stay and what can I Say !! It was just perfect. The villa is lovely and very well presented with everything you need. The area was ideal for us and very easy to get Disney and shops etc.

David the owner has been fabulous throughout from the time of booking until the day we left. He is there for you every step of the way. From the lovely gesture of sending postcards to the children and little welcome packs for them.

We were there during Hurricane Mathew and he was extremely helpful with everything. I would highly recommend it.

A fantastic villa in a great location and a great owner. Thank you so much David. ��

Regards Kim

Perfect holiday home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to simply the best and definitely won't be our last. We had a four week stay there and we just love it.

It benefits from a beautiful conservation view, great pool and spa and a generous pool deck area to relax on the sun lounges.

There are many reasons we decided to return, David is spot on from the day you enquire until after your stay, very friendly and genuine. So why simply the best?

* Quality fixtures and fittings

* Perfect location

* Loads of room

* Great pool area

* Free WiFi

* Perfect location for the theme parks

* Close to shops and restaurants

We have been going to Florida for over 30 years and one of our only regrets is that we didn't find simply the best earlier. We have two teenage children (a boy and a girl) and they love it and asked to have days around the pool at the villa rather than go to the theme parks (if the kids are happy, we are happy and we can relax on our holiday (vacation). You've got more than you'd ever need.

Keep it up Dave and many, many thanks. :-)

A stunning villa - highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Simply the Best for 3 weeks from 1 July 2016

The photographs of the house are right up to date and what you see is what you get. A stunning villa in a quiet residential location and situated within a short drive of all the attractions.

The house is beautifully appointed and perfect for visitors looking for excellent quality and a high level of personal service. The service provided by David starts as soon as you make your first call. His very friendly, welcoming and personable manner makes life very easy. He is not a salesman trying to sell you a holiday home. He is the owner of a beautiful home who wants to make sure that it meets your needs and your expectations. I think in every case he will exceed expectations and leave you with a wonderful holiday experience.

Everything you need is there including a plentiful supply of towels and pool towels. The kitchen has everything and the house has 3 lovely en-suite double bedrooms and two twin bedded rooms. There are lots of books and a wide range of DVD’s to suit all tastes. You have the luxury of an upstairs TV lounge and a downstairs TV lounge – an opportunity for the kids to rule both!! There is also a quiet lounge area at the front of the house, so there is plenty of space if you want some quiet ‘me time’.

The pool area is lovely and has a jacuzzi and comfortable pool side sun beds and a table and chairs. There is also a pool side toilet.

The pool is cleaned and serviced every week and David is also supported by an excellent property manager who is easy to contact and is only a phone call away if you need him.

In July it was very hot but the air con system kept the house comfortable all day and all night.

David likes to leave some little surprises for his guests on their arrival. His welcome pack and the extra touches were lovely and very much appreciated.

The house is within easy travelling distance of all the main attractions and it provides a wonderful base from which to explore the Orlando area. However you will find it is much more than just a base. It is your very own piece of paradise and I’m sure like us you will enjoy spending some lazy days relaxing around the pool and in the the house.

Would I recommend staying at Simply the Best? YES. We liked it so much we have booked a return visit in 2018 and can’t wait to return. Great house, great location and an attentive owner who genuinely cares about his guests and works very hard to ensure your stay is - Simply the Best.

The Simply the Best Experience

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Simply the Best is an experience that lasts from the moment you enquire to the day you return home and one you and your family will remember always.

Whether you are a frequent visitor to Orlando or it’s your first time David is the perfect host who is there for as much or as little as you need. The attention to detail ensuring your stay is tailored to you and your family is flawless.

The villa is simply immaculate fully equipped with everything you could possibly need and more… Watching our children’s faces when we arrived is something we will never forget, they just didn’t know where to look first, the little surprises David left created the perfect moment when we opened the door. (Get the camera ready)

All the parks, attractions & restaurants were only a short drive away, Even the Kennedy space centre and St Petersburg beach trips were both only 1hr 30min away with I4 (motorway) 15min down the road from the villa.

Don’t hesitate enquiry today, Hope your dates are free !

Owner's Response: Hello B Despite receiving so many great 5 * Reviews from previous guests I am always apprehensive till I receive the review from the latest guests ( I dont rest on my laurels ) .

The Zaragoza's

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 recently stayed at this property for 5 nights 6 days. Let me start by telling you that the minute I walked in I felt so welcomed and at home. The little extras that were left for me and my family were by far loved and appreciated. The location was about 15 minutes away from the attractions and Walmart was just down the street. I also wanted to mention that the owner was so very helpful and the reason I chose this Villa. He went the extra mile to make sure all our expectations and needs were met. Thank you on behalf of my family for making our stay a yet more enjoyable one. We will definitely recommend this beautiful home to our friends and family.

Thank you again for sharing your beautiful villa with us, this was our second stay. We were there for a month and it was just perfect. We had sand hill cranes visit us almost everyday they had two babies with them, it was fun to watch them grow. The little extra added touches are just such a great welcome. I am trying to figure out when we can return for our third stay. Beautiful villa, great friends, perfect weather and great swimming pool doesn't get any better then that! Well we are back to realality until next time! 😍 🌴 🌞
