About Tom Varnum

My name is Tom. I am am an avid golfer who purchased this condo a few years ago and plan to retire here some day. I live in New Hampshire and run a business in Massachusetts. I travel for my business but I do wish my travels brought me to the condo more often.

Tom Varnum purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Tom Varnum chose Davenport

I visited this property many times for 'Boys Week' which is an annual golf trip organized by my boss and friend who owned the condo before me. I fell in love with the area and golf course and when the opportunity arose to purchase the property I acted swiftly. My boss still lives at Ridgewood Lakes nearby at another property he purchased.

What makes this townhome unique

Again, it was the golf experience that lured me to the condo but it has great family qualities as well. We can all get together and enjoy a day at Disney or the beaches and come home to comfortable and safe place. Since I purchased the condo there has been an incredible growth spurt in the area and you can find almost anything you need nearby.

We love to take walks around the lakes and see the many birds and other wildlife. My favorite thing to do is after a long day, sit out on the balcony with a cool breeze and just look out to the lake and golf course below. There is always something to see.

Wonderful stay in a wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

Tom is a great home owner, from the moment we made reservations until a week before our travel, Tom provided all the information we needed for our stay. The condo was exactly as promised. We spend 3 weeks in Tom's condo and it was all we could have hoped for. We arrived in the middle of the night because of a terribly delayed flight and the people at the guard house were super friendly. The condo had the most welcome vibe and we instantly felt at home. The balcony view on an early morning (the perks of jetlag, as we're from Amsterdam) was amazing! I just loved it! The condo is so central located that where ever we wanted to go, we were on I4 in just a few minutes. We spend 2 of our 3 week vacation with the whole family, 5 adults, and because of the 3 bedrooms and very large livingroom we all had enough space to read a book or use the laptop without being in each others way. I already recommended the condo to a family friend who loves to golf and I just know he and his family will love this condo, and the golf resort, as much as we did. We had a great vacation and we will definitly be back in the future!

Home from Home 😀

  • 5 of 5

Having just returned from a fortnight staying at Eagle Ridge , Davenport - we have had time to reflect upon the wonderful holiday experienced in Orlando .

By far the most relaxing part of the trip was "chilling " at Tom's villa . The location was perfect especially for Disney parks , and from the airport ,and easy to find with Tom's directions ,

It was particularly pleasant to step into the apartment and sink your weary feet into the lush carpet after a heavy day rollercoasting.

Pretty much home from home with perfect kitchen and dining facilities , ample bed linen and towels available . With added bonus of dishwasher , washing machine and an ensuite dressing room off master bedroom .

Pool and concierge assistance available but didn't use either - too busy for pool time and totally fine without Betty's kind offer of help .

Golf course looked pretty good too but again ran out of time - will just need another visit .

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this condo last two years and enjoyed it very much. It is very comfortable and roomy, all the necessities you need , especially like the balcony overlooking the lake and golf course. The location is excellent, close to shopping and Disney yet very quiet and private. The owner Tom great to work with as is his property manager (Betty).plannig to go back next year.

Stay here! Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We are super careful and picky about where we stay when traveling and I am really grateful that we found this place! It is beautiful inside and out. The neighborhood is nice and quiet and very safe. We had the pleasure of meeting some kind neighbors. It had everything we needed. The carpet was my favorite... so so soft! I loved sitting out on the patio each morning watching the golfers and enjoying the lake view. Tom was so great. We thought we had an internet issue but it turns out we were doing it wrong. He was so kind to help anyway. I would recommend this condo to anyone. We will stay here again.

The condo is located about 15-20 minutes from the Disney Theme Parks, 30 minutes to SeaWorld, 45 minutes to Busch Gardens, 1 hour to East and West Coast beaches, and 1 hour to the Hard Rock Cafe Casino complex. My personal favorite is Clearwater Beach which is worth the extra drive and considered one of the finest beaches in Florida. Simply stunning.

Additionally, the condo is located about 75 yards from the clubhouse, 50 yards from the heated community pool and 200 yards from the golf practice range.

On Route 27, you can find almost anything you need for your stay from cigars to food to shopping malls and ice cream shops.

Other golf courses are located nearby as well if you want to try a different course with varying difficulty.
