Overview

About the property

beautiful 5 bedroom 4 bath 2 storey spacious luxury home with pool and spa

Welcome to our beautiful lakeside villa at The Reserve, Town Center Davenport

Perfectly situated, The Reserve is just 2-3 minutes drive from the new Publix supermarket complex at Championsgate. The complex also offers a McDonalds, Subway, pharmacy, Wells Fargo (bank) and a fully equipped fitness centre. A few minutes more and you reach the world famous golf course's of Championsgate and Reunion, perfect for those who like to take in 18 holes under beautiful Floridian skies. With all that Disney has to offer within 10-20 minutes children of all ages couldn't be happier. Then of course there is SeaWorld, Aquatica, Universal Studio's, Discovery Cove, Legoland, and the malls!!.....Phew!! to name but a few of Orlando's many attractions.

Further afield on the East coast, Cocoa beach, Daytona and Kennedy Space Center beckon. Whilst an hour away on the I4 Tampa and Busch Garden's pave the way to the white sand beaches of St Pete's and Sarasota.

After all that you may need a few days by the pool, and what a pool, one of the largest villa pools in the Orlando area, 28'x15' of glorious south facing saltwater pool and spa, overlooking a stunning natural conservation lake that stretches in both directions. The large pool deck and lanai will make it hard to leave such a peaceful and scenic view, along with the water lilies, Sandcranes and dragonflies the lake is home to some pretty snappy neighbours!! (take your binoculars)

Inside the villa is being refurbished to a high standard, the family room has a brand new 50' flat screen HD TV with over 300 channels, high speed broad band, and free local calls. By May 2014 the family lounge will be completely transformed with new red leather sofa's and black/glass/chrome tables, lamps, art and TV stand. The kitchen is large and airy and well equipped with a coffee maker, toaster, dishwasher, plenty of cutlery, crockery, glasses and utensils, sandwich maker, microwave, oven/stove fridge freezer with ice maker, tin opener and juicer/smoothie maker.

All the bedrooms have brand new bedding and new wall mounted flat screen TVs and ceiling fans.

Upstairs there are 2 twin bedrooms with a connecting bathroom and include a toddler bathroom pack (toilet seat and toddler step stool) and the Grand master with large closet and en-suite. But the best part and quite simple stunning and enchanting is stepping out onto the large balcony and seeing the lake, a sun-drenched place to sit, eat and drink, with tropical planting, loungers and Bistro set.

Downstairs are 2 more bedrooms 1 Queen master with 42' TV, luxury en-suite and pool/lanai/lake views, and a full front bedroom with a large shower with a seat, great for those who need a bit of support.

In the formal lounge new porcelain tiled floor, cream leather sectional, dining table and chairs, rugs, mirrors , lamps and art work will complete the transformation.

To make packing easier for busy parents .....

Along with the toddler bathroom pack we offer a complimentary Graco 'pack 'n' play on the go travel playyard' travel crib which is very light and can be used upstairs as a bed and downstairs as a play pen or daybed, keeping your little one just where you put them !! ..for those times when you need your hands free and baby close by. A large selection of sheets , fitted sheets, blankets and dribble pads to snuggle baby in at bedtime in lovely cheeky monkey, frog and lily pad or jungle design and a complimentary feeding seat 'The First Years deluxe reclining feeding seat' (0-4 years) which can be secured to a dining chair so your little prince or princess can be a 'big' girl or boy and eat with you or can be safely placed on the floor so your little one can watch you whilst you relax and feel the stress melt away.

There is also a stainless steel gas BBQ available for a small charge (to cover gas and cleaning) for those great evenings by the pool.

The house has just been fitted with an alarm, and 2 small key safes for your valuables, it is situated on a safe, quiet, prestigious gated community so you will feel safe and secure.

We can't wait to welcome you, there are so many more little surprises and quirky pieces of art waiting to charm you, and if there's anything we can do to help make your vacation easier please ask if we can we will try .....

So if all this is starting to tempt you, picture this... waking up in a spacious, comfy King bed to beautiful blue skies, slipping out onto the balcony into the hush of early morning as the mist drifts off the lake, and watching the sun sparkle on the gentle ripples across the lake as the day slowly starts to wake up....perfect.

About mandy

We are a family from the UK, mum , teenage daughter , 13 year old son and a younger daughter of 11 who have fallen in love with Orlando , Mickey , the warm climate, and the pleasant, friendly Floridian's . We have been visiting Orlando since 2004 and each time it's harder to leave, many times there have been tears on the plane home (and that's just mum!) So we decided to take the next step and buy a place in the sun where we can grow old and cranky ! and the kids can bring their kids one day.

mandy purchased this villa in 2014

Why mandy chose Davenport

The view of the lake is breath taking , when I first saw it ,I was and still am captivated by it , I had a lump in my throat and I knew it was THE ONE , a place I never wanted to leave .It's such a peaceful , serene place so scenic so full of beautiful trees and plants and wonderful wildlife , birds skimming the water , water lilies , dragonflies and of course remember the binoculars there's a few snappy neighbours in the lake !!

What makes this villa unique

After all the hustle and bustle of the malls , the loudness of the screaming thrill seekers on the rides, the busy theme parks and the excitement of firework displays, playful wet days at water parks or rides out to Tampa , Cocoa Beach or Kennedy Space Center ,it is a peaceful haven to return home to , lots of space for everyone to chill out in, a glorious sun filled lanai or balcony to lounge about in with a good book , an enormous pool for kids of all ages to cool off in, over 6' deep at one end , a spa at the other and the lake that beautiful glorious natural oasis teeming with wildlife , our beautiful warm welcoming home that we would love to share with you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Amanda,

>

> Your home is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!! It looks fantastic and a thousand times better than the pictures!!! The renovations are great! The floors are nice, the furniture is beautiful and comfortable, there's plenty of space and then some! I love your paintings and decorations! The tables are fabulous and I love the black and red place settings and arrangements. I'm so glad you bought this house and you have turned a nice home into a gorgeous home! Chace loves the pack n play and high chair. The coffee table and end tables are the exact same ones we have in our home. We are taking good care of all of it. You could have have told us that we had to find another place after you bought it, but instead you allowed us to keep our dates and worked hard to finish renovations before we arrived. There's not enough words to describe how thankful we are. We've stayed at many different places while we've traveled through the states and this is the best and nicest home! I'm excited for when you all get to see it and enjoy it!

Again THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! Hope you have a fantastic week! XX



Sincerely,

Chrys

Excellent Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

Location fantastic for all Parks. Quiet and secure for returning to after a hectic day. Very spacious and beautiful home. Loved the pool. and welcomed the laundry facilities. Absolutely no shortage of anything. You will be amazed to see the alligators in natural form if you go to the lakeside. Mandy was so helpful, and did not hesitate to answer every query promptly and courteously throughout all stages. Thoroughly recommend anyone to stay here, it will for definite, enhance your overall Orlando experience without a doubt.

This house was perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The house was plenty big enough for all of us and we got lots of usage out of the pool. It was quiet and relaxing but not too far from everything Orlando has to offer. Would definitely stay here again!

Fabulous Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our week stay at the villa! We were there the week between Christmas and New Year's, which is a terribly busy week in Orlando, but the villa was our calm and relaxing spot all week. We had plenty of room for our group of 8 (6 adults, 2 teenagers). Everything was as advertised and the pool was well used, especially since the weather was unusually hot while we were there. The living space was clean, well-appointed, and really enjoyable. We cannot say enough about this villa and would return any time. My experience working with the owner, Amanda, was fantastic. She was very responsive, checked in with us during our stay. She was nice enough to have a Christmas tree put into the living area, as well as having a small gift for each of our children. These little touches were so welcoming. We cannot say enough about our experience. If you are searching through hundreds of possible rentals (as I did), look no more - this Villa was outstanding. Thank you Amanda!
