About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

You will love coming home to our relaxing villa after a long day at the theme parks! This luxury villa stands out from the standard rental villas. A stainless steel kitchen and granite counters will either make you feel at home, or give you a little pampering while on vacation. Jump in the large, refreshing, SOUTHERN pool (lots of pool toys included), or curl up with a good book and cool drink on the patio lounge chairs. Listen to nature sing to you in the backyard. Privacy screens on both sides give you an extra secluded pool area. Still have lots of energy to spare? Head on out to the game room and test your skills on the XBOX 360 with Kinect on the large Flat Screen TV. Or, walk over to the clubhouse and use the exercise room. Do you want to lap swim? Grab your towel and jump in the large community pool. Vacations are for leaving work behind and bonding with family. You can do this when you compete in some foosball or play some of our board games/puzzles. Can't leave work behind? Bring your laptop and enjoy free Wi-Fi. We want you to call your friends at home and tell them what a great time you are having, so we have including FREE long distance within the USA and Canada. Love to read, but you didn't have space to pack books? I have a large basket of children's books, and magazines and books for the adults to enjoy. Do the kids still have energy to burn off at the end of the day? Take them for a nice walk around the block in the gated community (stroller included for the littlest one). Too tired to do anything but crash in bed or on the couch? Don't worry- we have lots of cable channels for you to choose from, and several DVDs. Our home has 6 Flat Screen TV's, so everyone can watch his or her favorite show. Bring your quarters to enjoy some gum from our large gumball machine in the garage!

Our home has been completely remodeled and inspirationally decorated, including tile throughout eating areas, new furniture, new bedding and linens, fresh custom interior, deck and exterior paint. The kitchen has everything you need to cook as you would at home. We have a washer, dryer and iron for your use. We have 2 master suites with private bathrooms. This makes it nice for you to share our home with another family, or bring along the grandparents or nanny to help with the kids. Our home was designed with family in mind. It has a high chair with plenty of child-friendly dinner ware for your younger ones. Our 2 bedrooms are decorated for the kids. One room is decorated with a sports theme, and the other one is decorated with a Princess theme. (Taking your princess to Disney, but you forgot her dress-up dress at home? Feel free to borrow one of ours for the day.) Your kids will love the Mickey and Minnie Mouse bathroom just for them. Are you heading out to the beach? Borrow our beach towels and beach toys. Does your little one refuse to fall asleep without a bed time story? Choose from lots of children's books to read. We have a port-a-crib for infants, so you don't have to worry where to put the little one. Once the kids are in bed, relax in the King size bed with a door leading out to the pool for that late-night swim. Enjoy a nice cup of coffee on the southern pool deck in the morning and watch the hot air balloons fly overhead around 7 AM. We are within 5 minutes of grocery and several big-box shopping stores, and have easy access to I-4. Included is FREE unlimited laundry soap, trash bags, and dishwasher soap!

Your family will love staying in our home so much, that they will beg to stay home from the parks! Call or email today, so we can start making your Florida vacation dream come true!

About melinda carrabs

I am a school teacher. I love traveling, biking, doing puzzles, playing games and reading with my children, having bonfires, and entertaining with friends and family.

My husband is a painter from Italy. He loves fishing, hunting, and spending time with family.

melinda carrabs purchased this house in 2014

Why melinda carrabs chose Davenport

We chose this home to buy as a rental home because we love the privacy and the view of the back yard. This is our second vacation home (pictured above is us at our first home). We love welcoming guests and friends into our vacation home. This home is perfectly located conveniently to shopping, attractions, interstate 4, and it is easy to get to.

What makes this house unique

We love getting up early, taking morning walks and sitting on the deck to enjoy our coffee. Around 7 in the morning, beautiful hot air balloons fly nearby the home. I chose this home because it has no rear neighbors and is super quiet.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family (2 adults and 2 children ages 7 and 10) took their first vacation to Florida and stayed at this home. We've never rented a home before, and previously just stayed in hotels on trips. I must say that I prefer the rental home a WHOLE lot more...especially this one! First of all, the home is decorated in such a way that it is both beautiful and welcoming. The decor puts a wonderful focus on faith, family, and friends - which was greatly appreciated. The living room area was cozy, and the dining areas were plentiful. If you have lots of people with you, you don't have to worry about space! The kitchen was stocked with all the utensils and kitchenware we could possibly need. The game room kept the kids busy and had a fun selection of activities. My daughter especially loved the gum ball machine! The kids (and adults) were engaged in hopscotch, coloring, card games, foosball, and board games. My husband and I really appreciated the laundry facilities, too! The bedrooms were comfortable, and the three bathrooms were a blessing! The kids were in love with their rooms' decor. The pool was just the right size for our family to enjoy, and the kids loved the pool toys. The multiple TVs in the home gave us some independent time to relax and regroup. Further, the home was located in a quiet and secure community and was at a great spot for driving to the theme parks. We were close to pizza places and stores so we could stock up on whatever we needed for our stay. Let me tell you, this home was such a blessing to come back to after a fun but thoroughly exhausting day at the theme parks. It was like coming back to all the comforts of our own, and then some! Finally, the Carrabs family was a delight to deal with. Melinda answered my questions quickly and was very helpful and kind. I would wholeheartedly recommend this home for your getaway! I know that our family will be returning for many years to come.

The south facing pool has plenty of sunshine, so can be enjoyed all day long. The home owner is extremely friendly and responsive. We'd recommend this home to couples or families. You will not be disappointed.

Lovely property decorated beautifully! Ideally situated in a safe friendly community.

  • 5 of 5

The property was absolutely beautiful, each room was decorated with such a warm and homely feel. It felt as though we were in a home away from home! Our daughters loved the princess room and all the toys/dressing up - which made days spent in villa easier as they had plenty to keep them occupied. The pool didn't disappoint either with plenty of sun exposure and lots of toys for the children! We were there for Halloween so we went Trick or Treating around the neighbourhood - the community was friendly and we felt very safe. We would definitely love to stay at your villa again, thank you for making our holiday stay an amazing one!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family vacation to Florida and Disney world. We decided to rent a house instead of a hotel room. this was the best decision we made. The house was awesome. The kids enjoyed their bedroom along with the playroom. Having a pool right there after a long day at Disney was great. The adults also have fun in the pool and enjoying the nice comforts of home while we were away. This house will stay in my favorites for our next trip to Florida. Thanks again again for the great accomidations.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay at this house that was full of everything you could want and more. The owners thought of everything to make the trip even better. The game room was a hit along with the pool. The amount of sunshine was perfect and if you ever stayed in another home in Florida, you know how important it is to get maximum sunshine throughout the day. The clever little signs around the pool made my children laugh. It's very nice and secluded and perfect for a couple of a family. I will definitely look to book this house the next time I'm in Florida. The owner is very charming and wonderful!

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5

This house is fantastic! The inside is beautifully decorated and the bedrooms are fantastic as well. The kids really enjoyed the game room and the private pool. The location is great. There is a wooded area behind the house so it is quiet. It is also close to Disney. I would definitely recommend this house!

Comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

My family had an amzing time at this home. Everything was there that we could have possibly needed. My kids felt comfortable, my daughter loved the closet full of princess outfits. Both kids and ourselves loved the private pool.

We did have some diffuclt with the main gate but it was a small little bump in an amazing vacation.

The owners were amazing when it came to booking. Very helpful and answered any and all of my questions in a timely manner.

Thanks again for letting us stay in this amazing home.
