About David Walsh

We are a UK family living about 20 miles north of Birmingham in the cathedral city of Lichfield. We have 5 children, all grown up now and we're hoping for grandchildren to take to the villa and Disney etc. The picture shows 2 of our sons sitting on the 'Spirit of the Swamp' airboat, one of our favourite rides just outside Kissimmee town centre.

David Walsh purchased this villa in 2003

Why David Walsh chose Davenport

Its perfect for our family needs with its 4 beds and 3 bath and extra large pool and spa. We loved the corner plot which allowed us to have the oversized pool and extra landscaping.

What makes this villa unique

Calabay Parc is superbly maintained as it was built as a short term rental community and has a Home Owners Association that manages the landscaping and maintenance in accord with its short term rental covenants. Its quiet but within easy reach of all the main attractions.

Villa was everything you would expect and more!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 2 wonderful weeks stay at this gorgeous villa. All rooms, including bedrooms were huge and the master bedroom with en-suite and walk in shower was even bigger! Kitchen and dining room were also massive and space was plentiful. It's quite obvious that the villa is a second home with its very thought out and comfortable furnishings. Air con throughout was perfect. Swimming Pool was great temperature and refreshing after returning from all day at parks! No need for pool heat in Aug/Sept. The jacuzzi was very warm!!! Added bonus was the games room with pool table and air hockey, ...and great place to dry your clothes when you get caught in the Florida storms! There is also a sub room with easy to use washing machine and tumble dryer! We didnt use the computer as we all had iPads but there is one there to use free of charge. It has a very fast free wifi, details are supplied in the villa. There is a safe, but we didn't feel it was needed. The massive bonus for us was (stop reading now ladies) the cable tv had been upgraded to include live premiership football and we even got the England all rooms!!! And as the pubs don't show it.....that was a dream for the lads. The villa is on Calabay Park, easy to find, and very very quite, which is great after the days in Disney. You need a car but you'd be mad not to have one in Florida anyway! Petrol (Gas) is only about 70p litre so don't worry about hiring the 5 ltr 7 seater Chevrolet like we did! Loads of resteraunts on the 192 about 8 minutes away. Huge Wallmart about 5 mins away. Perfect location.....lastly, thanks to David, Gloria and family for letting us stay there. We didnt know them but since booking feel we've known them forever.....very helpful with all information you need.

Been to Florida 3 times....if I went again, we'd definitely go back to this villa.....just perfect ......Recommended to all..... Just one thing on car hire.....make sure you judge the petrol and take it back empty as you receive a full tank and you are charged for it (Alamo). And don't get caught on paying the offer of a toll permit.....we did nearly 2000 miles and went through only 8 tolls in 2 weeks which cost us less than a tenner.....gorgeous won't be disappointed ......Cliff & Sharon and Family.....Birmingham

Great house, Excellent Neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

We were shocked upon our initial arrival to the property. The neighborhood is impressive and were greeted immediately from the extremely friendly next door neighbors. The house is well kept with large spaces and we thought the beds were extra comfortable. The kids loved the Monster's University themed room and slept well throughout our stay. The large master bathroom and kitchen were each great assets to us.

The house is conveniently located to Disney within 15 miles but factor in a time of 30 minutes with traffic. The Publix grocery store was very helpful as it was close to the home and provided nearly everything we need.

We found very few faults with our stay. First, there was not enough toilet paper, paper towels, or dish washing detergent in the home. We had to steal toilet paper from other bathrooms and we used up the whole roll of paper towels. I feel like an extra of each of these could be beneficial. We used the kitchen quite often so even a large jug of dishwasher detergent would have been helpful.

Second, the kitchen really isn’t setup to do a lot of cooking though and we had to improvise. If there were a few spices (ex. salt and pepper) left or some more utensils for cooking we would have been more satisfied.

Finally, the pool was covered and there were no instructions on how to uncover the pool or even if we could at all. The pool kind of felt as if it was off limits.

All in all the house was great and we would stay again. David was very helpful during the whole process.

Owner's Response: Thanks family Klitch. Glad you enjoyed the villa but disappointed with consumables and removing pool cover. As with most villas of this type it is self catering and we provide enough basic toilet rolls, dishwasher tablets etc to start. If we put more supplies in they are often not there for next guests. Costs increase and we try to keep rents sensible BUT we always stress if there are any issues while there just contact our agent, Becky who will do everything she can to help.

relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for us. Away from the parks, buy not too far. Used the heated pool every day. Very clean home and pool. Beds were good, towels and kitchen very well stocked. Kids loved the pool and air hockey tables. All you need is food. Our first rental home and would definitely do it again. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Great Home for a Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful week at the house, there were 6 of us who stayed in the home. Clean well-organized home. Easy access to Disney and also restaurants and local stores. I would encourage them to invest in a better wireless router, internet drops on a regualr basis when trying to make online plans for next days activities. Would definitely recommend or look at staying here again.

Owner's Response: Hi Scott, Sorry you had trouble with internet. We have phone, cable and internet from BrightHouse on their top subscription and have their best and fastest wifi. As per instructions it's best to report any issues to Becky, our agent. She would have had BrightHouse straight on it. Hope it didn't put you off. David
