Villa in Calabay Parc, Davenport, Florida Orlando/Kissimmee, USA - Located Within The Beautiful And Peaceful Calabay Parc Community, Ideally situated just off US27.
This luxury villa is a family villa and our family make good use of it, so for us it is a home away from home.

The villa is ideally situated in Calabay Parc on US 27, approximately 5 minutes North of Interstate 4, and 5 minutes South of US192.

There are restaurants, a gas station, a Publix supermarket, chemist and bank just a few minutes away by car and many more eating places on the US192 and Interstate 4. We strongly recommend a trip to Manny’s Chop House which is about 15 minutes south on the US 27 near Southern Dunes Golf Course and Wal-Mart. there is now also a new Manny's which is slightly closer on the US192.
We employ a management company to maintain the villa to a very high standard to ensure that your stay is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Of course the management company is always on hand should you require any assistance regarding the villa.

About John Prothero
We are John and Linda Prothero, we have 2 children; a daughter and a son and also 2 grandchildren. We run our own retail business which our son is also involved in, so this gives us a bit more time to get away for a break.
John Prothero purchased this Villa in 2014
Why John Prothero chose Calabay Parc
When we came to Orlando to look at properties we took advice and started to search in the area around the US27 and Interstate 4 as this area was ideal in its proximity to the parks and attractions, restaurants, shops and golf courses. We loved the feel of Calabay Parc with its peaceful setting and well kept gardens and the fact that everywhere was so accessible. The villa also had a great feel to it which a lot of the other properties that we looked at didn't have, we immediately felt at home, and it also has a Garden to the rear which is unusual in this kind of property.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa has to be in one of the best positions in the Orlando area, with restaurants, shops and main attractions just minutes away. But at the same time it enjoys a quiet community and so is good for down time after a busy day. We still intend to use it for ourselves and our family to holiday in and will not be over-renting it as we want to preserve the feel of it. We want it to be a home away from home. The villa even has its own garden area behind the covered pool area which looks very attractive with its palm trees and shrubs.

Great holiday in a lovely villa
Just returned from a 2 week stay in this villa with my wife and 2 boys (7 and 5).
The villa was comfortable and spacious and located on a quiet estate, with good places to eat and drink and supermarkets nearby. (ie within 10 mins drive)
It was great location within easy reach of all the parks (especially the Disney ones).
The villa's pool was great for providing a welcome change from hitting the parks, being an ideal size and depth for our 2 boys. (They loved it). My only other comment regarding the pool is that if booking the villa in late March as we did, it is worth arranging for the water to be heated as it was a bit too cold to use unheated. (However once we had it heated it was great and we used it lots of time)
John (the owner) was very helpful, giving us a introductory call when we arrived to check we were in ok, were able to use everything and providing suggestions on good places to eat and shop. When we asked about heating the pool, John had it arranged to be done very swiftly and with no fuss.
All in all we had a great time at the villa and would consider rebooking it if we return to Orlando and it is free
Spacious ,very clean villa in a great area.
This villa is very spacious and clean, it has everything you need for a great holiday. Had a few problems in the pool area due to the recent hurricane when we arrived but these were sorted by the management company after a few days and a few phone calls. John the owner telephoned while we were there to make sure the problems had been rectified. If your looking for a comfortable villa in a pleasant area within easy reach by car of all the amenities Florida provides do not hesitate, you will not be disappointed.
Thank you for your review David and your kind comments.
We are sorry that it took a few days to get hold of some screen panels but the hurricane put a huge strain on local resources - especially screen panels as you can imagine.
We are pleased that you enjoyed the villa and area as much as we do, if you ever wish to return please do not hesitate to get in touch, it would be a pleasure to have you as our guests again.

Great villa with everything you could want
From the moment we arrived we knew we'd made the right choice. Amazing villa, ideal for a family, very clean, spacious and had everything you need to feel right at home. Communication with the owner and agent was very straight forward and all the information you might need was already thought about. The games room in the garage was also great fun. Calabay Parc is a lovely quiet villa community and you can access most of the areas of Orlando without any issue at all. There is also everything you need within a short drive. Would highly recommend this villa for a wonderful stay while visiting Orlando.
Thank you very much for your lovely review. It was great to hear that you enjoyed your time at our villa and were happy with it.
It's always very pleasing when our guests leave us positive feedback.
We try and give the villa a home away from home feel, so that it's always nice to come back to after a hectic day at the parks.
If you ever want to stay in the area again, we would love to welcome you back.

Everything was amazing!
The house was perfect, spacious clean and set up perfect. The pool was a perfect size, the pool lights didnt work but not a big deal, still went night swimming. Orlando and attractions close, tons of restaurants and walmart, drugstores minutes away. Johm and Linda responded quickly when I emailed them. It was an amazimg week and definetly a plus to have the pool. Convinient to have a washer and dryer too. Thank you!!
Thank you very much for your positive comments. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our villa and had a great holiday. We are sorry that you had a problem with the pool lights - you should have let us or our management company know about them and they could have been fixed. No one had mentioned them before and when we were out there earlier in the year they were working fine. If you return to the Orlando area in the future, we would very pleased to welcome you back.

More than expected
We found the property easily as the instructions were very clear. Inside was perfect, especially as there were just two of us and though there were four bedrooms and it's a good size for a family it was just right for us too. There is plenty of seating around the pool and the fan in the lanii is a great addition. The villa is supplied with all the amenities needed to either eat in everyday or not what ever we chose. We had two issues and these were dealt with very quickly and to our satisfaction. The location is ideal on the 27 as it is half way between the 192 and the I4 , the roads to the theme parks and other entertainment venues.
We have no hesitation in recommending the villa and will return.
