Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 10 days and loved every minute of it. The villa is so comfortable, felt at home from the minute we stepped through the door with it's modern decor, good sized pool, plenty of space and very comfy beds . This was our first time staying in the Davenport area and loved it. Would recommend this villa to anyone and Steve was so friendly sending us restaurant recommendations and details of nearby shops. Great place to stay.

Owner's Response: Its always great to hear back from our guests as we do try to make every effort to ensure they do enjoy their stay. This year we did put a lot of upgrades in the villa and tried to give it an individual feel with unusual pictures, modern furniture and leather suites floral arrangements etc. It is nice to also hear that those extra touches are appreciated Hopefully throughout the rest of 2009 our guests will really appreciate our home and as can be seen we have already started booking up well for 2010

OUR 3rd STAY -- EVERYTHING YOU COULD ASK FOR

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at Steve & Susan's Calabay Parc home. As a seasoned visitor to Florida over the last 25 years we have stayed in many types of accommodation and Villas.

If you are looking for a Villa with easy access to the Disney and Universal parks and everything else the area offers then this Villa is a must.

If you are a first time visitor to the area then you could not ask for a better or more professional host than Steve himself. He is on hand to assist with every little detail if from the best places to eat, shop and visit.

The villa is a credit to Steve & Susan. It is always very clean and fresh looking. It simply home from home for us. The villa is big and spacious to spread out in, it can easily and comfortably accommodate 8 adults although we are just a family of three now. The free wifi and calls to the UK make it all the more home from home.

We have rented this Villa 3 times over the last 7 years now and we would not waste our time or money looking for another place to stay in the area.

Excellent Location, Very Clean, Couldn't Ask for More

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in April 2015 for 10 nights and had a ball. The location was great (near Disney) and the neighborhood was very nice, quiet, and we felt very safe in every way. The home was well appointed and it included starter products which is a plus that not all owners provide.

The layout was really nice and the place was extremely clean. We did not have a single issue during our stay. We will definitely be staying here again in the future.

The reviews here are right on the money. This home and owner are excellent to work with and you will not be sorry. Highly recommended.

CLEAN -- GREAT LOCATION -- SAFE -- LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about Steve and how helpful he was during our booking of his Florida home. Easy to get to off of Hwy 27 near I-4 for Disney and all the "Oranges" you'll ever need around you!! The pool water was set up high to enjoy it in the still chilly Feb month. Thanks to Nicola and Mandy and Rosmir (the housekeeper) for answering all our questions. We would come back to this home again. The best part is that it had leather-like furniture and not that "Old Florida Flowery" stuff that is totally outdated. Nice to see for a change. Would stay longer next time! Thanks again Steve you couldn't have been more helpful.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure once again to have Keith and his family return to our home. It is always nice to know our villa has met with our guests needs and that they have returned and enjoyed their stay yet again. We are out there soon ourselves and we are getting things together for our annual check of the home which we always like to keep nicely decorated and fresh and we are pleased our guests like the way we keep our home The location gets better every year as more restaurants open & there is more local shopping available. We look forward to hopefully welcoming you all on your next stay in 2017. Many thanks Steve

Wow - Truly home from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Steve's villa for 3 weeks in June/July 2014. The villa really is as it is described and is fully equipped with everything you need. There were 6 of us staying and we never felt cramped - there was loads of room! The master bedroom is absolutely enormous with a huge comfy bed, ensuite with a very large bath and huge double shower!! The double ensuite is a great size too with a massive walk-in closest and the twin and double rooms were perfect and serviced with a good size bathroom. The pool was lovely with great patio furniture and the garage had an ice hockey table for the kids and big kids in us! The kitchen had everything you needed including a massive fridge / freezer, huge oven, microwave and loads of cupboard space. The dishwasher was a huge bonus too. Steve kept us fully informed before our stay and Nicola took care of some problems we had out there. Nicola and the girl who cleaned the pool were both lovely and took great care of us! This was our last big holiday as a family - in future there will only be the 2 of us so a villa is unlikely but if we do decide on one it will absolutely be this one!! We ate locally at Applebees and Beef O'Brady's nearby and would recommend them both!! Short drive to Walmart and Publix and about 15 mins to Disney!!
