About Doug Martin

My wife and I live in Wisconsin. We purchased our Florida house as a potential retirement home to eliminate the cold Wisconsin winters. Since we are not yet retired we have decided to make our home available for rental at this time. We take great pride in the home and the contents and know that you will find it your home away from home.

Why Doug Martin chose Davenport

This property is located in Davenport, FL and is about 8 miles from Disney. This location is ideal for families that wish to visit the Florida theme parks but far enough away to avoid the hustle and bustle of the parks if that is your choice. It is also only about an hour from Tampa and the Gulf Coast Beaches and about an hours drive to the Atlantic Ocean as well. it is also close to major shopping, fine restaurants and Lake Davenport.

What makes this house unique

We have a covered patio in the pool area that lets you enjoy the outdoors even when there is liquid sunshine (rain). The pool has a heater to make the water temperature perfect even for cool winter evenings.

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

Had a blast! Took the family for a week and enjoyed every minute. We have stayed in the area many times before and this was one of our favorites. House had everything you could need including things for the kids to do. Location was perfect. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great alternative to staying in a hotel. Cant beat the price either!

Great FL rental!

  • 5 of 5

This house worked out great for us. It's close to Disney and other parks. The kids loved the pool, and it was very nice to have a washer and dryer onsite to use. We used the provided stroller one day for a trip to a nearby outlet mall-very nice to have that option! The house was very clean and well-stocked with towels, etc. Would recommend!

We just left the house today. Fantastic house! It's very clean, comfortable and close to grocery stores and restaurants. Neighborhood is quite and clean. The house has all the things you will need even a cooler and all the appliances. Beds are comfy and plenty of linens and towels. Lots of pool toys for kids Seriously all you need to do is go food shopping and paper products. Definitely will rent again. Price is right and owners are awesome. Thanks Doug and Kathy.

Perfect Orlando vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (plus our 3 & 5yo) just returned from a week in FL and couldn't have asked for a better place to call home while we were there! The location is perfect for any of the Disney parks, an easy drive to the ocean (we did a day trip to Clearwater Beach, and about 40 minutes to downtown Orlando...which was also fun to visit. The home is located in a quite, safe neighborhood and the neighbors all seemed very friendly. The layout of the home is perfect and having access to a full kitchen is such a money saver while on vacation. The pool area was our favorite spot of the house! The pool itself gets sun most of the day and there is a covered patio in the shade as well. I also really liked the fact there is an alarm that alerts you any time the patio door to the pool is opened... such a great security factor with two small kids running around! We will definitely be back to this house!

Phenomenal place to spend vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with 3 kids under the age of 9 and it was our sanctuary. The layout is perfect, the pool was wonderful, the wildlife and hot air balloons were a special treat and it was in a good location for all shopping and the parks. We are already telling all our friends and family to book this house when they go to Orlando and we will absolutely book it for our next trip. There was plenty to do in the house to entertain us all, 3 different families all had their own area to retreat to if need be, and the property manager was awesome even though we had to call him at 2 am. The house was a perfect place to recharge and rest so that we could survive the 3 full days at the parks. I tell you, Book this house and enjoy your vacation.

Home is located close to Walt Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios, Old Towne, many fine restaurants, challenging golf courses, and great shopping. The house is about an hour's drive to Tampa and Busch Gardens and the Gulf Coast beaches. It is in a quiet subdivision but close to everything. The best of both worlds.
