Davenport Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, sleeps 8-10 people

When we selected our Florida Villa we looked at all developments and layouts before choosing Southern Dunes and our 4 Bed 3 Bath Florida home. Because of our layout we have three great areas to relax and enjoy yourselves when resting between your trips out. We have a front lounge which we call the quiet area which also has the dinning area. Through the arched opening we have the Kitchen with the rear lounge this has a casual eating area with sofas . This area also has the Flat screen TV . We then have the Games room with the FULL SIZE pool table , Air Hockey Darts, PS2 and PS3 Games console and bar with stools ideal for all ages to relax or to keep the children amused.We believe due to this what ever you want to do to relax an area in our Villa is available in our spacious layout.The Kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. Our Pool has an extended decking with lounges ,chairs table ,.FREE POOL heating by Solar panels electric by agreement FREE calls in America/Canada

Southern Dunes is located 20 minutes from Disney, 30 minutes from Universal and close to Tampa and Busch Gardens It is located in a quiet Gated residential area and affords the best of both worlds being close enough to the attractions for ease of access but also giving quick access to the Beaches of the west coast if you want a rest from the Theme Parks.. There is a Wal-mart at the entrance to the community together with Restaurants Including the very popular Manys ,fast food outlets, Eckards, Video rental shops and Banks.

In fact everything you need on the doorstep.If you desire you can actually walk to them

Our House also has a moderm linked alarm system offering added security along with a safe for your valubales

Couldn't be happier!

  • 5 of 5

Our annual golf trip to Florida was a wonderful week. The weather was perfect as well as this home we rented. I would give my highest compliments to Alan who kept in contact with me and made the whole process a breeze. And whomever rents this property won't be disappointed!

Florida like it should be.

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Florida countless times and this villa was exactly what I expect. Everything was as explained and we had a great holiday. Southern Dunes involves a little extra driving from the parks but it is worth it for the peaceful location and everything is on your doorstep, from Walmart to fast food outlets to restaurants. Villa was clean and tidy and management company were on hand for any issues (which were minor). Absolutely recommend.

Faultless villa

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed on Southern Dunes several times, this is the only villa that had no faults. Perfect quiet location, great privacy by the pool. A full TV system with access to premiership football, golf and films is a real bonus. The wi fi is good speed with adequate coverage. Plenty of everything inside, added with it,s great location, we would highly recommend this villa.

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa was very spacious and well equipped. The deck had a number of sun loungers etc. The pool area has a hedge surrounding it so gave us privacy while enjoying the pool or just soaking up the sun. There was also wifi in the villa - a must for my husband who keeps an eye on his business while we are on vacation. The decoration has been refreshed and the pool area has had work done too. Neil from the management company was very quick to respond to our phone calls and the problem sorted out satisfactorily. The pool was the warmest that I have ever had in Florida which was fantastic. The golf course was in very good condition and a pleasure to play according to my husband who took full advantage of the facility. The golf club was good for lunch and we also enjoyed a meal on Thanksgiving too. Manny's Chophouse, as always, was fantastic although very busy. Best steaks of our vacation. We went to Tampa for the auto show and also Kennedy Space Centre. Enjoyed Old Town Classic Cars on Saturday night.

Alan and Clair, the villa owners, were easy to deal with. Emails were answered promptly and our experience with them was all positive. I would love to go back to Primrose Retreat again.

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from Orlanda and the family and I thoroughly enjoyed the villa - 5 star all round , beds are really comfy, grat pool, BBQ was used non stop and the surrounding golf club was magnificient. I will definately be returning. The villa itself had everything you could wish for and satellite TV came in handy to watch the royal wedding. I would definately recommend the villa . Disney Parks all within 24 miles and so easy to get to

It does what it says on the Box

  • 5 of 5

When you rent a Villa you can be hesitant about your accomadation but this Villa was exactley as the pictures and description. East to find with accurate directions always a good start access via a Key lock Box so great after a long flight.The layout was very good with plenty of space and decorated and furnished to a very good standard. The Beds need a mention they are very comfortable and worth booking this villa for that reason alone A good night sleep a definate on any Holiday. We found the Walmart great and the local Restaurants excelant (Mannys very good ) The pool heated by solar was a great benefit for everyone would not rent a villa without it again.The pool deck did get the sun until dusk which was great sitting their with our beer and wine.Southern Dunes is a lovely area and we can not wait to go back.

Car: necessary

Southern Dunes is located on Highway 27, six miles from Interstate 4 the main route through Orlando, which due to this location, gives quick easy access on the new road system to all attractions and both coast without the congestion of the mass developments around Disney. We also have a Wal Mart supermarket at the entrance together with fast food and other restaurants Our Vila is located on a quiet area of Southern Dunes with a south westerly pool deck for all day sunshine. In the nearby town of Winter Haven a large selection of restaurants are available for your enjoyment. Once you have visited you will soon be coming back. We are not overlooked by the Golf Course and the Golfers who start playing at first light which can be very intrusive especially if you are lying by the pool. We also have planted a shrub shield for even more privacy.
