About the property

Peaceful Gated Community With Fabulous Clubhouse, Resort Fitness Centre And Pool

If you want to stay somewhere upmarket, with the feel of a top-end hotel, then this is the property for you and your guests. Far more appealling than other conventional basic properties on the market in some of the older resorts, this stunning and luxurious air-conditioned 5 bedroom, 4 1/2 bathroom vacation home, with private swimming pool and beautifully landscaped garden, is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the brand new exclusive Solterra Resort in Davenport, Orlando.

Residing in a beautiful secure gated community, the resort features a large contemporary clubhouse with cabanas, extensive fitness centre, tennis, basket ball and volley ball courts, lagoon style swimming pool with beach entry (ideal for children and adults alike), a waterfall feature, water slide and Jacuzzi, plus a children's playground and lawn.

This villa is truly stunning, contemporary and luxurious. This is Florida living at its very best.

This new (November 2013) two storey property includes brand new contemporary and superior quality furnishings with designer bedding for a wonderful nights sleep after a busy day at the theme parks. The whole villa has been designed with comfort and style in mind for the discerning traveller.

The open-plan aspect downstairs includes a large dining room, kitchen with breakfast bar and family room leading onto the private pool area. The fully equipped kitchen includes stainless steel appliances and contains everything you will need during your stay. There are 2 large master bedrooms, each with king beds and large en-suite bathrooms, including twin basins, a bath tub and walk in shower facilities, plus 3 other queen double/twin rooms, each with bathroom facilities. Additional features of this stunning property include a large TV/movie room & work area and a fabulous games room, including an 8ft slate pool table, air hockey and foosball table, a dart board and table & bar stools. This is a large 28×14 ft south facing private pool also including a spa, with a screened pool deck, lanai area, modern patio furniture and sun loungers, overlooking a quiet a conservation area, so it is extremely quiet and peaceful and not at all overlooked. In addition to this home easily accommodating up to 11 adults, for families with young children, we have provided a baby high chair, travel cot/crib and stroller/pushchair for complimentary use. Linens and towels are also included.


The property is accessible via an electronic keyless entry system, so there is no need to worry about collecting keys before/upon arrival. We ensure all our guests have all the necessary information on how to access the property prior to your departure. We also have a management company looking after our property, situated close by in Davenport, who can assist you should you have any queries after you arrive.

We aim to provide a high level of service to ensure your holiday is stress free and everything you dreamed of.


The villa and resort is extremely quiet and peaceful, yet it is located a very short drive away from the Interstate I-4, which means it's got very easy access to Disney and other major theme parks, from 15 to 20 minutes drive away. And, it also means that you don't get stuck on some of the other congested highways and side roads when you are driving home late in the evening after a long day at the theme parks.

About Pamela Syrett

My husband and I live in England and have 2 young children. We love travelling and purchased this brand new property as a vacation home.

Pamela Syrett purchased this villa in 2013

Why Pamela Syrett chose Disney / Orlando

Our children just love Disney and Universal and this home is ideally situated, close to all the theme parks. It's situated in a brand new gated community, so it's safe and secure, and has access to a fantastic clubhouse with fitness centre, resort swimming pool, water-slide and children's play area. The property is also located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac/turning circle and since the back of the property is south facing and overlooking a conservation area, we think it's one of the best plots in the resort area.

What makes this villa unique

The villa has a South facing private pool, jacuzzi spa and garden, overlooking a conservation area with lots of interesting wild-life. We have converted the garage into an extensive games room. We've also included large 50" web enabled TVs, Bluray DVD player and free WiFi. Fun for all the family!

Having studied interior design, I have furnished the interior to a very high standard, with lots of contemporary and luxurious furnishings, and have taken pride in making this home both visually appealing, but also extremely comfortable for all to enjoy.

As well as the obvious theme parks, there are wonderful golf courses close by and the villa has easy access to I4, with quick links to the airport, East, West and Southern coasts.

Absolutely lovely and so well set up.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in your lovely home - a great set up and every convenience for families to enjoy - and we did enjoy every moment. The pool and games room became favorite spots with our family members - and sitting in the lanai in the evenings enjoying our bbq dinners was divine. We cannot say enough about Palm Retreat Villa. Thank you from the McNab clan from Ottawa, Ontario Canada.

Lovely home for our family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Pamela was really helpful when we were booking the home - promptly answering our initial enquiry and following up on subsequent questions about the house, resort and theme parks. Perfect and prompt customer service.

When we arrived at the house it immediately felt like home - lovely decor and very comfortable. The house is so well equipped for our stay. The pool and games room were a very welcome addition to our holiday, keeping the kids entertained for hours.

Location of the home was great - very private at the back of the home, with easy access to the theme parks, shops and restaurants.

Thank Pamela for making our holiday such a wonderful memorable stay.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 families, 11 people in total for our stay here in Davenport. The house worked out perfectly! The kids had their own tv and play station upstairs while the adults had the living room downstairs. We made great use of the pool table and air hockey in the game room. Of course, the pool and hot tub were also wonderful. All in all, the house worked out great for our vacation and Pamela was even kind enough to accommodate an extra night stay as a last minute request.

Fantastic home from home

  • 5 of 5

This is an incredibly well furnished and maintained house, very close to all the theme parks and many shops, bars, restaurants etc. The owner has taken every care to add every little extra that you can think of - a real home from home. The games room in the house is an added bonus, as is the main pool and sports facilities just a couple of hundred yards away - can't wait to come back again when the lazy river is finished!
