About Alison Taylor

I grew up in Matlock Derbyshire UK. 9 years ago we moved home to Lincoln in Lincolnshire. Living close to the city is really nice and we enjoy the history and vibrancy of Lincoln. Florida was a dream holiday for me. So I love the holiday home in Orlando and always find something new to do. We always gain a few lbs and count the days till our next visit.

Alison Taylor purchased this house in 2007

Why Alison Taylor chose Davenport

We fell in love with this house because of the beautiful pool area. With no houses behind it is just lovely and peaceful. The house is spacious and we have had lots of family holidays and special memories to treasure.

Fantastic Villa !!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week long stay at this wonderful villa. The villa was very spacious with a great pool. The bedrooms were perfect for the 7 of us staying here. The bed in the master bedroom is the MOST comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The villa is in a great location for all the attractions, restaurants and supermarkets. Davenport Lakes is a lovely residential location - nice and quite perfect when you are lounging by the pool. Thank you so much Alison for all your help leading up to our departure, all the information you provided was really helpful, also for returning our deposit so promptly. We have staying in numerous villas in the area, this is the one that we will definitely want to return to when we come back to Orlando. I highly recommend this villa to anyone who wants to stay in a great location and in a great house.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa is beautiful, comftable and very clean. It had everything we needed for our holiday. Our three boys enjoyed the pool and it was nice to be able to sit in comfort and keep an eye on them.

The villa is situated very close to all the main attractions, there are lots of restaurents near by and the local supermarkets are only 5 mins away.

Alison the owner keeps intouch with you pre and post holiday and is very helpful and aproachable.

I would recommend this villa to any one wanting to stay in Florida , if like us you have been to Florida various times or you are novices, you'll want to rebook and stay here again.......8-)

great holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa provided all that we needed for our holiday. It was clean,spacious,well maintained and has a wicked pool area.

We spent hours by the pool relaxing after hectic days.The villa is only 15/25 mins from all the major parks and only a couple of mins from the shops.

It is set in a lovely area and the local wildlife is great to watch at night from the pool.

We will certainly use this villa again,as Alison was very on the ball with anything we needed to know and nothing to much trouble.

Superb villa

  • 5 of 5

Fanastic villa,very comfortable, well equipped, clean and spacious. Lots of touches of luxury. It is in a very nice, quiet location.

Lovely pool area, great for relaxing. The area is excellent and the lake is beautiful. We also loved the large( communal) pool and swam every day.

The owners have thought of so many details, they were also so helpful, with great communication. Also lots of useful information provided.

We had a fantastic holiday and will certainly book again.

We love it!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at the villa and again it was very comfortable, presented to a very high standard and a great place to stay. It is suitable for any type of holiday visit and we love it even more each visit! The house and pool are both very clean and well maintained and this makes for a very homely feel.

The villa is really close to Disney and all other popular attractions and is also only a short distance from a wide range of restaurants to suit all tastes (mmm, Outback, Olive Garden, Bahama Breeze...) .

It is also really close to the Florida shopping mall which contains both large department stores and smalller shops. There is a fab outlet mall that has a range of named brand shops at brilliant prices (too much to choose from!)

There are several supermarkets really close by so staying in is also an option. A day by the pool is to be recommended and the opportunity for an evening barbeque is not to be missed.

We would highly recommend staying here, it is suitable for anyone and we can't wait for our next visit!

From the moment we stepped inside the villa we found it to be spacious, clean and tidy. The pool was very warm and private, the kids loved it. The villa is situated very close to the parks and all other amenities. All information was provided and excellent communication with owners. It was very relaxing to come home to the villa after having a full day at the parks as we would just sit outside and enjoy the pool. On the whole a very enjoyable holiday, we loved staying here and would do again if we ever returned to Florida.
