About Nicole and Steve Griggs

Im a Mum of four. Its been our dream to buy a property in Florida since I was carrying my first child in 1989. After two bad attempts, we finally got lucky and we used my inheritance having lost both my parents at a young age as a deposit.

I hope to be able to pass this home down generation to generation.

Nicole and Steve Griggs purchased this villa in 2009

Why Nicole and Steve Griggs chose Calabay Parc

Ideally situated, south facing pool with many palm trees which are my favourite. Calabay Parc is one of the nicest best kept and safest communities in Davenport

What makes this villa unique

I fell in love with this property as soon as I saw it. The palm tree out the front was a happy site and we especially love the shape of the pool. Enjoyed putting our mark on the villa.

I have great respect to my potential guests and upon receipt of a booking, I will arrange a convenient time to telephone them to answer and questions and make them feel at ease that they are not just communicating with a robot. We are human I like to put my guests at ease as at the end of the day they are parting with their income. A holiday is meant to be a time to relax and enjoy after all their hardwork throughout the year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Nicole,

I'm not allowed to place the review, because I have not a booked state for the property on the site ( I think) .

But I wanted to place the following text:

"We stayed for a week in this marvelous house and had a great time.

It is spacious and well equipped.

We had some chilly days, but the swimming pool was still useable.

The wellknown parcs are in the neighboorhood, the Universal Studios are at a 30 minutes drive.

If we are going to Florida again, we certainly book this house again."

Kind regards,

Arno Borst.

A fantastic home, with a great owner.

  • 5 of 5

This is was our second stay at Nicole's Villa, and just as the first time, it could not be faulted. This a a very roomy villa with a huge pool, high quality furnishings and excellent facilities. All the rooms come very well equipped and the internet and TV 's are of high specification.

The location is safe and very quiet and Nicole the owner is extremely helpful and really shows she cares for the needs of her clients.

Thank you again Nicole.

Such an amazing time

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much to Nicole. The villa was amazing. We've stayed in Florida six times but this villa had everything. It wasn't spacious, comfortable and great fun.

The quality of furnishings were very good but we even had great support from Nicole and the management company. A storm damaged some netting around the pool and it was fixed the next day!

The location is perfect, close enough to the parks etc, but not so close that you don't get a chance to relax.

We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.

Fantastic !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful villa for two wonderful weeks. Nicole has made this vacation rental a real home with lovely decorations, nice furniture and high quality of linnen, kitchen appliances etc. and everything was very, very clean. Our two teens (and we did also) loved the gameroom which is exceptionally good equiped with even a pinn bal machine I personally loved. The pool and pool deck were very spacious with sun all day. The large table outside is great and we eat all of our meals at the pool deck if we didn't go out to eat. The villa is close to Disney and a 30 minute drive from Universal parks. Calabay Parc is a very clean and safe community and we liked being on that location. Nicole is great to work with and I enjoyed speaking and e-mailing her. She is a very nice person with great love for of her home, which you can feel in every contact and in the whole house. Thanks for having us Nicole!

Beautiful Calabay Parc Villa

  • 5 of 5

Nicole was really helpful when booking the villa and answered all our questions. We had a wonderful holiday here. The villa is beautiful, spacious and in a quiet area away from the main road. It was clean and very well maintained and we had no reason to contact management services during our stay. It is a real home from home with deep pile carpets, rugs, pictures and ornaments. The kitchen was spotless and is well equipped with everything you require. Although we didn't do any cooking as there are so many fabulous restaurants within easy driving distance. Our favourites were CrackerBarrel, Appleby's, Longhorn Steakhouse and Bob Evans. The villa is about 15 mins drive from Disney and it was wonderful to return to such as lovely home after a busy day at the parks. We stayed at the parks til 2 or 3pm then returned to chill out back at the villa swimming watching tv or using the fantastic games room in the garage. We went to all the Disney parks, Universal and Typhoon Lagoon water park. We also drove to Daytona Beach and drove along the beach. it is about 1hour 40 mins away. Our holiday was over too quick. Thanks Nicole for all your help and letting us stay in your wonderful villa. We will return!

Owner's Response: Thank You Michelle for a lovely review. You are a truly wonderful guest who has gone beyond all that is expected, making a special effort to contact Home Away because your review was not posted. Most guests despite having a wonderful holiday/vacation do not bother with writing a review but reviews are so important. You appeared to be having an amazing holiday. The weather was exceptional too. Next time you must check out Mannys' Steakhouse on Highway 27 and a new one opened before Christmas on Highway 192. We are hoping to purchase a folding table tennis depending on room and a docking station for ipods/i phones etc later this month. Keep following me on facebook for regular updates on the villa and Orlando. I look forward to welcoming back where you will receive a discount as a 'returning guest'. Many thanks Nicole
