About Deanne Ambrose

We live in the UK but love to visit Florida. All enquiries receive our prompt and personal attention to help make your holiday a wonderful experience.

Deanne Ambrose purchased this villa in 2010

Why Deanne Ambrose chose Davenport

As soon as we entered this property we knew it had the 'wow' factor. The spacious feel of the villa hits you as soon as you walk in, as shown by some of our guest's comments in the reviews.

What makes this villa unique

The beauty of The Manor is that although it is close to all the major attractions and facilities, it is also a peaceful haven after a busy day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic time and loved the villa. We've been to four villas in Orlando before yours and can honestly say that yours has been the best - the layout, the furnishings (especially the massive TV :) ) and the pieces you leave for the guests (games, DVDs, inflatables etc. - we're used to needing to go to Walmart to get that stuff and was great to have it all provided).

We'll check out your availability next time we go and thanks again.

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay in the villa and will not be our last! Fantastic location and feels like a real home from home. The villa has everything you can possibly need and is exceptionally maintained, the layout and pool area are suitable for everyone. Dealing with Deanne is a pleasure and can't wait to return.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely gorgeous! The pool and hot tub were perfect after a day at the Disney parks! We paid extra for the pool heat and it was well worth it! The house is much bigger than it looks in the pics. Our son loved the game room! The house has just about everything you need except laundry detergent, garbage bags, extra toilet paper and paper towels. Everything else is provided. If we go to this area again we will definitely rent this property again!

Fantastic Villa, Excellent Value for Money!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this villa in 2014 for our stay in Sept/Oct 2015. The instructions and communications with the owner over this time leading up to our stay was prompt and very helpful. Deanne is always quick to respond to any questions or queries you might have.

We arrived at the villa with a very smooth journey and it was even better than we imagined it would be. Everything was clean, tidy and in good order. The rooms are massive, and we especially liked gathering round the large sofa in the living area in the evenings. The on-suite bathrooms are particularly wonderful, I wish we could get the same in the UK! The pictures are very accurate to what you get, which is; a great, well cared for, spacious villa for a very reasonable price.

The villa is at West Haven, which in my opinion is a perfect distance from the parks to be away from the hustle and bustle but not too far. It takes approximately 15-20 minutes to get to the Disney “entry gates”. It takes about 25-30 minutes to reach Universal / SeaWorld.

Local amenities are great, and the guide in the villa explains well where they all are. Our favourite local Publix is just a hop, skip and a jump away but there is a massive Walmart just up Highway 27. There are also many local areas to eat, Chilli’s to Go, Applebee’s, McDonalds, China 1, Pizza places etc…

Being a gated community, the area is very well maintained and looks quite secure. You do need to ensure you put the refuse bins out correctly on the appropriate days, but this is clearly explained to you in the instructions in the villa.

I would highly recommend this villa to anyone. We had a fantastic time here will defiantly be staying again in the future if possible!

Thanks Deanne for a great time!

Owner's Response: Once again, we are grateful that our guests have taken the time to give our home a great review. We hope that any future visitors will find this beneficial, especially as our guests have covered what we would consider to be all the major points when selecting a holiday home. We have been told many times that not only are the photos accurate but also they do not convey the large spacious feel of the villa. It is always pleasing to know that a good time has been had and we look forward to welcoming this family again in the future.

Beautifully maintained and spacious villa. The swimming pool was in use within minutes of our two grandchildren (7 and 9 years) arriving. They loved it and couldn't wait to return there after a ' busy ' day in Disney\Universal We had paid for the pool to be heated, which was appreciated even more when there was a problem one day However the children undeterred, braved the coolness I have to say we reported the problem in the morning and by the time we returned it had been repaired. Very efficient! The location is perfect Close enough to all the parks, but far enough away from all the hustle and bustle to relax occasionally, We loved Publix and enjoyed eating in some evenings. The owner Deanne was really helpful prior to arrival and answered us promptly. Thank you for a brilliant stay which just added to our enjoyment of a lovely family holiday We would love to return!

Owner's Response: A common phrase we hear again and again - "close enough to the parks, but far away from the hustle and bustle". This is one of the reasons we love West Haven - convenient yet peaceful. We are sorry that our guests had a problem with the pool heating but sometimes these things happen. We are very fortunate to have a wonderful Management Company who will always do their best to give 100%.

Superb villa

  • 5 of 5

We are seasoned Florida villa vacationers and this property is one of the best we have stayed in. Well laid out with large lounge area and excellent kitchen. Large and comfy bedrooms with great bathrooms.

The pool and lanai area was large with a great covered area which had a fan to cool the area. The pool and lanai is not overlooked by neighbouring properties as there are hedges to the side and a white fence to the rear.

The West Haven area is ideal with good access to the I4 and onto the theme parks. Excellent Publix supermarket at Championsgate and a whole raft of restaurants are within easy driving on the US27 and 192.

Would recommend.
