About NICOLA WILSON

I live in Sheffield, England with my husband and 2 daughters and our chocolate labrador. My husband and I both work but once a year we like to take our daughters over to our villa to see their favorite Disney characters and spend quality time as a family. Our favorite place to eat is Chillis, our favorite beach is Clearwater and our favorite park by far is Magic Kingdom. If you are a young family like us and are going to Florida for the first time and are unsure of anything we would love to answer any of your questions and maybe even offer a few tips on where to go and how to save money etc. Please feel free to get in touch.

NICOLA WILSON purchased this villa in 2005

Why NICOLA WILSON chose Davenport

We fell in love with this area from day one. Its only 15 minutes from all the main attractions including Disney World and only a few minutes from the nearest super market, restaurants and golf courses as well as only one and half hours from the Gulf of Mexico and 35 minutes from Orlando International Airport. All that said, our villa is far enough away from all the hustle and bustle for those days when you just want to lay by the pool and relax.

What makes this villa unique

As well as being completely self sufficient in the villa having your own private pool and spa, games room, full kitchen, free international phone and broadband etc you are also welcome to use the community facilities including a communal pool and spa, sand volley ball court, childrens park, pitch 'n' put, gym, cyber cafe all within a 5 minute walk from the villa.

Bedbugs

  • 1 of 5

I hate to be the only poor reviewer of this property as it has had excellent reviews to date and I rely on reviews more than I do pictures and descriptions. I do however feel that I need to relay my experience.

I realize that bedbugs can appear anywhere at any time and is in no way a reflection of the cleanliness of a property. To that end the property was relatively clean. The second night of our stay I woke up to realize that I’d been bitten several times. Upon further inspection I found and captured 6-8 bedbugs in our bed. Fortunately, we didn’t see bugs anywhere other than the master bedroom. I had heard of bed bugs from a friend that battled them 15 years ago and knew that they were extremely difficult to get rid of. First thing the next morning I contacted the Owners management company to see what needed to be done. A pest control guy showed up, looked at the bugs, took a few pictures and said they would be in touch. It took them two and a half days to get back to me to confirm that these were bedbugs and that they needed the property vacant to treat. Being springbreak they couldn’t find me alternative accommodations, so my choice was to be homeless with 2 seniors and 2 young children or stay in the infestation. With only two days left in our stay we really had no choice but to stay. I asked what we could do to prevent bringing these bugs home with us and we received no offer of help from the owner or the management company. We made do with solutions found on the internet and now we wait and see if they were effective.

No concern was expressed for my family’s health and wellbeing.

After our stay I was expecting some sort of offer of compensation and got nothing. I tried explaining that this cost me at least two days of my vacation time to deal with the issue and took away 20-25% of the home that we paid to enjoy, yet all I got was that this was an inconvenience for them as well and that somehow, I should share in that pain.

Bed bugs aside the home was spacious and well equipped, however dated. The dishwasher was old and very loud. Some buttons on the microwave didn’t work and the door handle was broken, you could tell it had been glued several times in an attempt fix it.

The pool was nice, but don’t fall for the same thing I did. My contract stated that the “Hot Tub is available for guest to enjoy at no additional cost”, however if you don’t pay the additional cost for pool heat you don’t get hot tub heat. Enjoy the cold hot tub I guess.

We had a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Nicola's condo. Condo was lovely and a very private setting. Nicola was very responsive to any concerns that we had and all concerns were resolved. It is a great setting for families who wish to spend time in the parks. Also the pool and hot tub were great, used them almost every day as the weather was also great.

Fantastic villa. So pleased we chose to stay

  • 5 of 5

Dear Nicola

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your wonderful villa. You have thought of everything that we could have needed from very comfortable beds to a well equipped kitchen. We felt very safe in the gated resort with friendly staff checking each vehicle that entered the area.

I would highly recommend your home to anyone who is looking for a well equipped, comfortable home at a very reasonable price.

Thanks again.

Gail

An amazing place

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property - far better than we ever imagined. The house is so spacious. There were 7 of us staying here and we all loved it. A great gated community so we all felt safe. We also loved how the resort was a short drive away from the theme parks - gave us all time to escape from the action. The house is in a very peaceful location and was very well equipped. We loved the pool area and couldn't have asked for better accommodation. Excellent communication from the owner who responded to all emails very promptly. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Woodland View Villa stands out from a lot of villas in this category because of it's position. The pool and deck area doesn't back on to another villa's pool area, in fact you have the enjoyment of the woodland, hence it's name! On those needed rest days you can kick back and enjoy the Florida sunshine from dawn til dusk on our South Facing pool and extended deck in a peacful environment.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was the perfect base for our first Orlando holiday. It's within 25mins of all the Disney parks and was great to come back to after a long day. The children couldn't wait to get in the pool which had the sun all day and the games room was an added bonus!

This fabulous villa was clean and spacious, we were very sad to leave.

Thank you to Nicola for all your help while planning our trip and for being so quick to answer any questions we had.

We would definitely recommend!

Owner's Response: Our villa is very well equipped to service up to 10 guests on a self catering basis. We are conscious of the luggage weight restrictions and overweight surcharges which is why we provide not only bathroom towels but also pool towels. In exception to most rental properties, our guests experience a homely feeling as we have furnished it to a high standard and added a few extra touches for a comfortable surrounding . Our South facing pool and deck is ideal for a quiet relaxing day but if you prefer to socialise with other people staying at Aviana the communal pool and guest house is in a beautiful setting overlooking the lake.
