About the property

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 has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, the two master bedrooms are en-suites with direct access to the pool area and the two twin rooms share the main bathroom.

The villa is ideally situated in Calabay Parc on US 27, approximately 5 minutes North of Interstate 4, and 5 minutes South of US192. We are 15-20 minutes from Disney, 25 minutes from Universal Studios and about 35 minutes from Orlando International Airport. Highlands Reserve Golf Course is less than 5 minutes north and Southern Dunes Golf Course about 15 minutes south on US27. Champions Gate golf course is also just 5 minutes down the road.

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. This ensures that it is always a pleasure to come home to after a day of sampling the sights and activities that the Orlando and surrounding area has to offer.

The pool (which can be heated at extra cost) overlooks a garden area and has a covered Lanai and pool furniture.The garden is maintained to a high standard by the gardening team who also look after the community planting, and is not overlooked from the rear.

To keep you cool in the evenings there is a fan in the Lanai with a light that is ideal for having a relaxing drink after the day's activities. To add a romantic atmosphere the lights in the pool can also be turned on via a timer.

The fully equipped kitchen is open plan to the living room with a breakfast bar; there is a formal dining room and also an informal dining area.

The garage has been converted into a games room and is equipped with a Pool Table, Foosball table, Air Hockey. There is also a separate laundry room with a washing machine and tumble dryer.

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.

Spacious ,very clean villa in a great area.

  • 5 of 5

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.

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. Kind regards, John & Linda.

Great villa with everything you could want

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful and Comfortable Villa.

  • 5 of 5

I only have positive things the say about this villa. We stayed for 2 weeks in April and we didn't want to leave.

As a family of 8 (including 2 children) we found that this villa had ample space for us all and was very comfortable. All rooms were spacious, nicely decorated and it had all the extras you could need. The game room was a great touch and we had many family tournaments!

Though North facing there was still plenty of sunshine in the pool area. We opted for pool heating which made the pool temperature at this time of year very comfortable.

The street is peaceful and very clean. There are plenty of shops/restaurants nearby (short drive away). Traffic in Orlando is a lot busier than I remember from previous visits. I would say from the villa it is a 20 -25 minute drive to the main Disney Parks (at peak times) and 40 minutes to Universal.

The owners were very helpful and we would definitely recommend this villa and not hesitate in hiring it again should we decide to go back in the future.

Thank you to John and Linda for answering all of our many questions.
