About Alan & Sheryl Broomhead

Originally from the UK, we have lived in Ontario since 1998. We love our place in the sun to relax and unwind, especially during our long, cold Canadian winters.

Alan & Sheryl Broomhead purchased this villa in 2004

Why Alan & Sheryl Broomhead chose Davenport

As soon as we saw this property it felt like our home away from home. Perfect location for all the theme parks, beaches on west and east Florida coasts, restaurants and Kennedy Space Center. Have enjoyed vacations with family and friends here and look forward to many to come in the future.

What makes this villa unique

Private pool and rear garden - so nice to unwind. Lots of space for everyone to enjoy.

Excellent place for our family of 5 to enjoy a week in Florida!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Florida in the winter to escape a week of cold weather. This property was excellent for our family of 5 and quickly became our home away from home. We did three days at Disney which was easy driving distance. We were able to easily take back roads and avoid traffic. Our kids (and the parents!) really enjoyed the large pool and privacy of the fenced area. If we were ever traveling to Florida again we would stay here again! The owners were excellent to deal with, good communication. Thank you!

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

Great place to base yourself from to enjoy the parks, Disney approx. 20 mins, Universal approx. 30 mins.

If the parks aren't your thing, everything you could want and more is available in the property. The pool area is private and well furnished for sunbathing, sitting out for meals etc.

Shops ( Publix & Walmart), and restaurants are close by for essentials

Alan & Sheryl are great people to deal with, excellent and prompt responses with any questions or queries.

Would highly recommend this property.

The only problem was we had to come home!!

Ideal for parks and relaxing around the pool

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in several villas in this area and this is certainly one of the best. The pool area is secluded, and the estate is quiet and tastefully looked after by the local residents. Its ideal for 192 (restaurants & shops) and stores (Walmart is 5 minutes away). The decor is fresh, and the furniture including the beds is very comfortable. Your certainly can't go wrong, and the rental price is very reasonable.

This is the place to stay. This home is wonderful. As soon as we walked in the door, it felt like home. Everything you need is there. Great space! The owners are great and respond to your every question. It is centrally located. Disney is about 1/2 hour depending on traffic. Daytona Beach and Tampa are about 1hr - 1 1/2 hour drive. Cant say enough about this home. The pool is great! Check this home out for all of your vacation stays in Central Florida. It was one of the best vacations we have had. We have recommended this home to all of our family and friends back home for their vacations and plan to rent this out again next year when we come to Florida.

The Palms Villa is situated within a quiet, residential area, only 15 minutes drive to all the Disney theme parks. Seaworld and Universal Studios are approximately 30 mins drive away. Orlando International Airport is approx. 30 mins by car. Great beaches on both the east (Cocoa Beach) and west coasts (Clearwater) are approximately 1 hour drive along the I4. Why not take a boat tour from Clearwater to see the dolphins or experience Nascar racing at Daytona? There are also many terrific golf courses nearby for budding golfers. Only minutes away from Highway 192, there's always something to do, mini golf, shopping , and great restaurants.
