About Denise Lawrence and Lee Lawrence

We live in the New Forset, UK and after a wonderful family holiday in Florida decided to purchase our very own home so we could return year after year. One day we'd love to retire here but for the time being we visit once or twice a year.

Denise Lawrence and Lee Lawrence purchased this villa in 2010

Why Denise Lawrence and Lee Lawrence chose Davenport

We knew exactly what we wanted but had to view many properties before we found 'the one'. We specifically wanted a 2 storey Villa, it gives more privacy when travelling with another family and we didn't want to have lots of other people being able to look in to the pool area. The fact our Villa backs onto conservation is just perfect. The neighbourhood is really peaceful too and a lovely mixture of Vacation homes and friendly Floridians!

What makes this villa unique

The open plan layout which benefits from a lounge and family room, the Master bedroom downstairs with patio doors to the pool deck, the private pool and spa. It has a wonderful feeling and oh so quiet too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I want to thank you for a great vacation in your fantastic house. We had a great time. Sometimes the boys didn't want to leave the house, because it was so lovely.

We had a great time visiting the parks and our family.

Every thing was just as you said on the website.

Thanks for everything! It was great!

Thousand Oaks Blvd is located within the Davenport subdivision of Thousand Oaks. The estate is perfectly located just off Ronald Reagan Parkway which leads to both I-4 and Orange Blossom Trail.

Thousand Oaks is a peaceful and secluded development, appropriately named as the homes are surrounded by beautiful woodland and located among a multitude of very old majestic oaks and pines. There are several man made and natural deep-water lakes, the largest of which is just over forty acres, teeming with fish and other aquatic wildlife. Fishing and wildlife watching are favourite pursuits on Thousand Oaks.

Disney, Universal Studios and SeaWorld are all easily accessible with the bonus of not having to travel on the I4 or US27. Disney World is a 15 minute drive from the house using the quieter Old Lake Wilson Road as a quicker route.

Well what can I say an excellent holiday all round. Denise was extremely helpful from start to finish... with regards to booking flights, places to eat and places to visit. This was our first time to Florida as a family and we weren't disappointed in any way at all. The villa was spotlessly clean and it had everything you needed to enable you to cook a meal if you so wished! There were 2 fridges which was fab one for all the cold drinks/ beer and the other for food. Lovely rooms comfy beds and plenty of towels for everyone. We bought our own beach towels which we always do but maybe a few towels for the beach/waterparks would be an added extra. There was plenty of everything ie glasses, plates, bowls and alike which was great. The pool was a godsend after a day at the parks. The kids enjoyed it loads and the spa well that was extremely relaxing.

We were only 10-15 mins drive from Disney and 25 mins from Universal so the villa is in an ideal location. Everything wasn't very far away at all from the supermarket (Publix) to restaurants along the 192 all within easy reach. We liked Bahama Breeze, Olive Garden Cheesecake Factory of course (a must) to say but a few never short of places to eat and definitely worth a trip or two is Disney Springs, super restaurants and lots of shopping too.

We visited Sand key park on the Gulf Coast...just along from Clearwater which was fantastic, a day of sun and extremely warm waters.Loved it!Loved it!

We also went the other side to Cocoa beach on the Pacific which was also great, the sea is a bit rougher here but still quite shallow so we hired a body board for the kids and they loved it. We ate that evening on the pier which was lovely, nice food plenty of refills of soft drinks for the kids & adults... and just watched the sun go down.

We spent 3 wks at Tranquil Retreat and loved every minute and thank you Denise for all your help from start to finish. We had a fantastic vacation one to remember xx

Owner's Response: I'm so pleased you all had a wonderful time, it was my pleasure to help you plan your trip. Our management company do a fantastic job of looking after the Villa so it's lovely to hear that it was spotlessly clean. We've recently added another fridge as it really does help for all those cold drinks that are needed. I absolutely agree about the Beach Towels, unfortunately we replace them every year and they either get left at the parks or taken home. Our Villa is located perfectly to enjoy all that Florida has to offer and you certainly made the very most of it, good to see you also made some time to relax by the Pool & Spa though! We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.

Great vacation in a splendid house

  • 5 of 5

The villa was absolutely as advertised : very nice, spacious, clean and well furnished. We were a group of 4 adults and 2 kids (10) and we spent 2 weeks there.

The kids loved the heated pool and the game room after our long days at the parks.

The house was less than 30 minutes to major attractions, restaurants, shops

It was a pleasure to deal with the owner, Denise. The management company also took care of some little troubles we had quickly.

We don't regret this first experience (we are used to book hotels) and definitly recommend this property.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this vacation home! Everything was just like we expected according to the pictures and description. All the amenities we needed were provided, from the kitchen utensils to bedding to bathroom supplies. The highchair and crib were also supplied, along with brand new crib sheets which hadn't even been opened yet. We enjoyed the game room and the playstation when we couldn't use the pool because of rain. It was nice to be able to cook in a big kitchen and then have plenty of room for everybody to eat either at the dining room table or the breakfast table.After years of staying in hotels, it was a welcome blessing to find this villa which ends up being cheaper and much roomier. The owner was very pleasant to work with and very personable. We received out deposit back promptly! We look forward to another opportunity to stay here.

Owner's Response: I'm so pleased you and your family had a great time and that our home was everything you expected and more. The Games Room and Playstation seem to be very popular even if it's not raining! It's hard to believe that people stay in hotels these days when like you say there is so much more room when renting a whole house and for less money. Having the open plan floor space is perfect for entertaining and the family room as well as spacious lounge means there is plenty of room for everyone. It was a pleasure to speak to you Debbie and I hope you get the chance to visit again.

Excellent in every way!

  • 5 of 5

From the start this was excellent, the owners were brilliant to deal with, instructions perfect and a great price too!

There were only 2 of us staying and we had so much space, but plenty of room for 2 families. The Villa was very clean and had everything we could need, loved the huge TV & Playstation 3 and WiFi too, just like home.

We had the Pool heated and it was lovely and warm, great after a day at the parks, Disney really is just under 15 minutes. Thousand Oaks is really lovely, quiet and friendly with a great fishing lake.

Everything is close by and we won't hesitate to return, hopefully later in the year!

Thank you so much!
