About The Owner

Family with 2 fabulous kids who enjoy outdoors, golf, running etc

The Owner purchased this villa in 2011

Why The Owner chose Davenport

We fell in love with the area when we rented villas 2 times in last 12 months during our vacation. Highlands reserve was our favorite neighborhood as it offers so many things and you can always find something you like to do

What makes this villa unique

Best part is the villa itself as it feels so rich with nice open layout, upscale kitch and the furnishings (better than my primary home), huge private pool area to relax.

We found that Highlands reserve offers best of both worlds (close to the theme parks) and far from crazy/busy parts of Orlando. There are two different ways to get to Disney (local roads or highway) depending on the traffic.

Neighborhood is big enough to have miles of side walk with golf course views where you could walk or run.

I can also go across the road into an area with farm houses and dirt roads to get nice and quiet roads when I want to go for long runs

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in Florida stopping for two weeks from 11 August 2015 and we were delighted with our choice of villa. The owners were very helpful with any queries we had before we booked and in providing clear instructions prior to our arrival. We found the villa very clean, comfortable, spacious and with modern equipment. We did not have any problems at all.

The Disney Parks are about 30 minutes away given the traffic, with Universal and Seaworld about 45 minutes.

Everything was like home with a washing machine, dryer and ironing board so we were able to take home all clean clothes. The internet connection was great with all the family online through their phones and tablets.

A nice touch was the DVDs and Books available. The kids enjoyed the Harry Potter DVDs especially following our trip to Harry Potter World at Universal Studios.

The pool area was great for a relaxing swim at the start or end of a busy day.

The Publix Supermarket was excellent around the corner, and for even more choice Walmart was only about 5 miles away (travel north up the 27).

Areas for further improvement would be some repainting of the outdoor area, and moving the pool table out of the garage and into the room next to the swimming pool (as it is shown on the photos), but these are only minor issues and didn't impact on our overall enjoyment.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa.

Ridiculously late cancellation

  • 1 of 5

Could not be more disappointed with the owner. We were informed 3 days prior to travel that there was a serious issue with bed bugs in the villa. The owner offered us a small apartment with a shared pool at nearby complex Regal Palms as alternative accommodation. It was absolutely nowhere near the standard of the villa, which we had booked months in advance and were extremely looking forward to staying in. Obviously we declined this pathetic offer. The next day our booking was cancelled and money returned. He then revealed that the terms and conditions did not require him to refund us any of our money; he made it sound as though he was doing us a favor by refunding us. Please tread carefully. He left us without accommodation less than 48 hours before departure. We had to find alternative accommodation ourselves incurring a substantial cost which the owner refuses to reimburse - as a matter of fact he doesn't even have the decency answer our e-mails. If I could give less than one star I would. First time in America for our family and we certainly will not be back after this negative experience. Please be wary when dealing with this owner.

Owner's Response: This was very unfortunate situation. We have never had bed bugs problem in our 5+ years of ownership. As soon as we have discovered the problem, I have contacted the guests via e-mail and again over the phone in couple of hours after the e-mail. Once we have realized that it will take about a week to address the problem proper way (heat treating the house with pest control), I have started looking for alternate stay for the guests as the guests didn’t have much time. I have found a 4 bedroom town-home in Regal Palms Resort right across the street from our villa. They wouldn’t have private pool but it had resort like facilities with bigger pool with lazy river etc. Our friends had good experience in Regal Palms last year when they joined us during our vacation. I have asked if the guests were willing to stay in that house for about 5 days (at my own expense) and then move in to our villa once the villa is ready so that guests could spend rest of the vacation (12 more days) at our villa. The guest was very upset and demanded that ‘I provide an alternate accommodation that was at least as good as ours and if not better than our villa’. I have realized that there is no way I can satisfy the guests and immediately decided to fully refund the payment so that guests could find an alternate accommodation to their liking. Majority of my guests are repeat guests and please check the reviews of other guests about their experience in our villa and how responsive I was to their needs. I wish I had an opportunity to resolve this in a better way. Bed bugs problem has been addressed with pest control and we have replaced the mattresses too. Current guests have been happy and they didn’t find any more bedbugs

Large Villa

  • 4 of 5

Lovely big villa, nicely furnished and every home from home comfort and items you could possibly want. Only thing that really let it down was the villa was looking tired in places and could do with some TLC and a tidy up. Safe provided was an added bonus too.

Location of the villa is good and can either enter/exit via the main gates or along Sand Mine Road. Very convenient for Publix Supermarket and some eateries.

Excellent stay at the Villa!! Would do it again

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at the villa during our 5 day stay. It wad very welcoming with lots of room and wonderful amenities. Very nice kitchen-family room for large group to hangout having fun or relax peacefully looking at the pool. The hot tub and the pool were the major attraction for our group especially in the night bue lights. Would recommend this villa to all my friends and families.

Great Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this villa. It was spotless and had every amenity we could have ever wanted. There was ample room to be together as a family or to spread out and relax after a long day out. The pool and hot tub were great! We have recommended this villa to our families and friends.
