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 Lake Davenport Estates

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.

Lovely quiet, conveniently located property

  • 5 of 5

Great communication with the owners throughout the booking process and upon arrival. The onsite maintenance team were very efficient at responding and resolving the couple of observations we made upon arrival. Everything thing was addressed within 24hrs.

Tea and Coffee available upon arrival, which was a very welcome sight. A few consumables were also available to make the stay easier. (Washing up liquid, laundry washing tablets, etc...)

We also paid to have the pool heated, which was a very good plan. (We didn't last time we visited Davenport at Easter a few years ago) Lots of food outlets and supermarkets literally within a couple miles of the house (5min drive) and Disney was never more than a 15/20 min drive, however we are very early starters for the park, so maybe 30mins if you are a late starter.

Kids point of view - pool and WiFi were great !!!!!!

Basecamp is a very important part of any stay and the house fulfilled the task very well.

Four Day Thanksgiving stay

  • 5 of 5

This stay is a remarkable value. It was clean and well supplied with excellent directions for everything from the trash pick up to the security system. It is in a great location and just off the main highway 27 which has all the necessary immediate shopping needs. Service forgot to supply the master bath with toilet tissue but it did not stress my daughter or myself. The neighborhood was quiet and the house very comfortable. Don't think I have ever had such good sleep at a hotel stay. You will not be disappointed if you book this one.

Lovely house and location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house although someitems could do wiith replacement as damaged or worn.

Everything (almost!) provided that meant it was as easy as being at home. Couple of glass oven dishes or casserolle dishes would have helped but overall very happy. Not sure if would be suitable for small children as no outside area to let them out into (pool deck not huge) but fine for couples or older children.

Master bed very comfy but can't report on others.

Great location (we are huge fans of the Davenport area) as close enough to everything but far enough away as well. Been a huge amount of building since we were last there 2 years ago but all done very nicely and still feels really open.

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.
