About Gary Lund

We are the Lunds and we live in Nottingham, England. We love our house in Florida and try and spend as much time as we can here. A great place to have fun and there is no place else like it. Our dreams came true when we bought this house. We take great pride in keeping our house spotless and our property manager Susan looks after it for us with great care.

Gary Lund purchased this villa in 2007

Why Gary Lund chose Davenport

After holidaying in Florida for many years, we decided we wanted to have a place near Disney that we could call our own, allowing us to spend as much time in the area as possible. We plan to spend more and more time here as we get older but for now, we get over as much as we can. We chose Watersong because it seemed nicer than all of the other resorts and we haven't been disappointed. Being a conservation resort it has lots of space and the houses aren't crammed in side by side. It only takes 15 minutes to get to Disney and everything is so convenient.

What makes this villa unique

We spend as much time as we can in the deck and pool area. We upgraded our pool to the biggest we could get and it also looks out on to conservation so it really is a special place. All of the bedrooms have TVs and the beds are very comfy. A large flatscreen TV provides for our entertainment needs and the kitchen is fitted with everything you need. Wi-Fi means everyone can keep in touch with the outside world - but we rarely do!

brilliant villa holiday

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant family holiday (two families with teenagers and adult children) and the villa was a huge part of it.The layout is great with the big family room and kitchen/diner all together which meant we all gathered there The pool, deck and spa were more than big enough even when everyone was there which was often, especially when the bbq was on.A games room was a bonus and brought out the competitiveness in all of us for some great fun.The villa is in a great location for all the attractions and shopping/dining at the end of the fortnight we were all sad to leave after a great time here. Thanks Gary

Water Song Review

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at the villa with no problems thanks to clear and easy to follow instructions beforehand. The Watersong complex was secure, clean and a very pleasant place to be based for our vacation.

The villa was well equipped for all our needs complete with a nice well maintained pool. We would certainly go back and recommend Watersong as a good location for families looking to enjoy Disney World and other Florida attractions.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our stay. The listing was accurate and the house is very spacious for 10 people. It was clean and ready to move into. The owner provided excellent customer service, always replying to email communication in a timely manner. The property management company was great too. Some of the lightbulbs were out when we arrived and the grill didn't work. Within the afternoon, new lightbulbs and a grill were delivered! I would recommend paying to heat the pool and spa. We did and it was perfect. Our neighbors did not and they said the pool water was chilly. I would love to stay here again and would definitely recommend this property to others!

A very good find!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Gary!

We ABSOLUTELY enjoyed staying in your villa. It was VERY CONVENIENT to everything...the Publix for groceries, and the parks, Universal Studios (where we spent the most , about 20 minutes away), and Wet n Wild. The game room was a big hit for the teens, as well as, to the adults. I do wish we stayed a little longer. Everybody was very comfortable because each one had their own place to sleep. I will strongly recommend your villa to all my friends and family here in New Jersey. It was indeed a good find!

Again, thank you for letting us stay in your villa. Your place is very well kept!

Regards, too!

What a fabulous experience

  • 5 of 5

I cannot express enough applause and rating for Gary;s villa, the experience was amazing, the home is beautiful and the overall stay 100% perfect, the property is very well maintained and beautiful decor. The space and design are top class, and my wife and family thoroughly enjoyed are holiday. Watersong is a fabulous location, quiet and secure and only 25 minutes from Disney and 40 minutes from International drive, This was are 4th vacation in Watersong Davenport and far the best. I must emphasise how professional yet informal the communications from the owner were, we were very relaxed and enjoyed the complete package, I highly recommend Gary's villa and the vacation. Wewill definitely be booking again, and my daughter in law a travel agent has passed on the details to some of her customers. This villa is a must and I highly recommend a holiday here. A++++++++++ PROPERTY AND STAY

Watersong is a beautiful gated resort community allowing you to relax after a day out at the areas fabulous attractions. The choice is endless but with Disney, Universal Studios, Sea World and Discovery Cove all only a short drive away the only thing you need to decide is where to go. If you need a break after the Theme Parks, Watersong is a great place to relax, with lots of fauna and flora and a large Community Clubhouse having a large lounge, Gym, Volleyball Court, Playground and large pool. There is a Publix supermarket within 4 miles for all your grocery needs and various restaurants on your doorstep. Attractions including Daytona and the Kennedy Space Centre can also be reached in under an hour. Golf is a huge attraction to this part of Florida, and there are some absolutely world class golf courses surrounding the community. The golf courses of Champions Gate and Providence are extremely close to a Watersong villa. Enjoy, because Watersong has it all.

Other Activities: DisneyWorld, Universal, Sea World, Discovery Cove

Golf: Well located for all the local courses. Next door to Providence, approx 4 miles from Champions Gate and within 20 minutes of over 20 top class courses.
