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 game......in 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 villa......you won't be disappointed ......Cliff & Sharon and Family.....Birmingham

Beautiful, clean and luxury away from home!

  • 5 of 5

House was a home!! You immediately felt like it was your home and not just a rental house. The pool and Jacuzzi became our best friends. When we weren't visiting the amusement parks, we stayed and enjoyed the pool and the home's amenities. The property management company was great - especially Becky! The few things that needed attention were fixed timely! You are near supermarkets, attractions and more! Thoroughly enjoyed our week and would definitely recommend!!!!!

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using Home Away and David made the entire booking experience a breeze. He provided great notes on local attractions and restaurants. We could tell the home had been professionally cleaned when we arrived and it had everything we needed outside of food. It's in a lovely neighborhood which was great for morning and evening runs and it's also very quiet which was great after being out and about all day. My wife and I loved having a pool/jacuzzi to ourselves.

If you don't mind driving about 20-25 minutes to get to the different parks this place is perfect. It was also an hour drive to Tampa and Cape Canaveral from our location. Overall, we had a great time and have been recommending this place to friends and family since we've been back.

Great holiday villa!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for five nights with family, using the villa as a base to visit the local parks. The villa itself is clean and well thought out and was spacious enough for two families with children of varying ages, whilst not feeling crampt. The games room was a welcome distraction for the children (and grown ups) in the evenings after returning from the parks. The kitchen was big enough to accommodate everyone and had a welcoming setup when we arrived. The master bedroom is spacious with good storage in the walk in wardrobe and a big bathroom. The bedroom is big enough to fit a travel cot alongside the bed comfortably. The second double bedroom is of good size with en-suite bathroom and the two twin rooms and adjacent bathroom and good sized, with plenty of storage

We had paid to use the pool heating, but even so it was still a bit chilly for us so we didn't get to use it (not a fault of the villa's though!).

The owner, David, was very helpful and responded quickly to all enquiries and the information we received before we arrived covered everything we needed to know and we felt in good hands. Also, the guidebook and information in the villa really helped.

The location was fabulous, only 10 - 15 mins to Disney and really close to the supermarket Publix, and the neighbourhood seemed safe and welcoming.

We recommend visiting the local Wal-Mart to purchase all your Disney gifts before you return home. Also it is advisable to purchase the rain ponchos, autograph books , lanyards, Minnie Mouse headbands etc there and not in the park as it is loads cheaper!

All-in-all we loved our stay and would recommend the villa to family and friends in future. Thank you for a great stay!
