About Jeff Smith

The owners are a family from England who live in the small rural location of Lowerfold, which nestles in the hills of the Pennines about 20 miles from Manchester.

Jeff Smith purchased this house in 2007

Why Jeff Smith chose Davenport

They have been coming to Florida for almost 20 years before purchasing the home on Highlands Reserve. What struck them immediately was the excellence of the community and its stunning location. There is only one neighboring property and unobstructed views of the conservation area to the rear and the golf course to the front. Being situated at the rear of the community the home offers total peace and tranquility.

What makes this house unique

End of street home offering a very private aspect both front and back and only one side neighbor.

Great week with the family!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first attempt at a full family vacation since all 3 kids have been married. This house was perfect for our group! (8 adults). We needed accessibility for one of our group and there were two different bedroom/bathrooms on the ground floor that worked. The home is spacious and as nice as the photos show it is. There is plenty of room to spread out. We hosted my family that lives in Florida for a BBQ one day and had up to 20 people there with no issues. We really enjoyed the pool table and the pool. We also got 3 rounds of golf in during the week. The course was great, but the greens were recovering from aeration. They discounted the price to play, so it was still a good value and experience.

The home is close enough for easy park access, but far enough away to be out of the hustle/bustle of the parks area. It took about 40 minutes in traffic to reach Universal and 25 to Downtown Disney. We also drove over to Daytona Beach one day in about 1.5 hours. (Last week in June)

The only issue we had was the tiny sugar ants. We found them in the kitchen upon arriving and let the management know the next morning (sat) when we met. They had an exterminator their Monday morning to spray and put out traps. We still had a few incidents with them over the week, but nothing serious. Being from Florida originally, I know it's very difficult to get rid of these tiny creatures. We bought a can of ant spray to supplement the exterminator. I recommend bringing or buying a variety of zip lock bags for your food to help keep them out.

I will definitely rent from this group again and would not hesitate to rent this home again. I highly recommend!

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every moment in this beautiful home! It's clean, well equipped & comfortable. This has been a great place to relax. The view from the front door is the beautiful golf course & behind is a peaceful wooded area. The bedrooms & bathrooms are spacious & afforded privacy for our guests.

We have rented with Jeff before & his properties have always been high quality.

Owner's Response: Thank you Robert for your review. I am curious as to why you only gave us 4 stars when you state in your review how much you enjoyed the home and you have re-booked for 2018.

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Florida staying at this luxury house. It met all our needs and was in a great location. The neighborhood was quiet, clean and felt safe. If you play golf, the course is beautiful and right across from the house. Very close to all the amusement parks and with the hot tub and pool made it easy to take breaks from the parks and relax. We will definitely try and stay here again when we visit Florida again in a couple of years.

Couple of things we noticed, but it could be my ignorance with this being the first time renting a vacation home:

1) There was no extra toilet paper or paper towels, so we had to go buy more when we got there.

2) If you want to wash clothes, you will need to buy detergent. There was none in the laundry room

3) Same goes with the dishwashing soap

Since it is Florida, just prepare yourself for bugs and caterpillars. It could have been the time of year when we stayed (Oct), but they were everywhere. Coming from Arizona we are used to little critters so it did not bother us. We did have an issue with Sugar Ants inside the house. We mentioned it to Chris and she had the pest control come out that day to spray again. Really appreciate the quick responses from both Chris and Jeff.

The Booking process was simple and painless. Thank you Jeff and Chris for managing such a great property and your attentiveness to our needs and issues. Will definitely recommend this house to anyone traveling in the area!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Kristi for your 5 star review and your kind comments. To answer your questions: It is the norm in the short-term rental homes to have a new toilet paper in all the bathrooms and a new paper towel in the kitchen just to start guests off. We have just started to put a couple of washing tablets and dishwasher tablets in the home, again just to start guests off. We look forward to welcoming you back.

Our second time staying here as we loved it so much.

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing house. We stayed here 3 years ago and couldn't bring ourselves to go anywhere else as it was just perfect. We are 2 adults and 4 teenagers so it's great to have a big house so every has their own space and bedroom. It truly is a luxury home!

Jeff is so lovely to deal with and everything went very smoothly. Thank you Jeff.

Can highly recommend this house.

You can see my much more detailed review about the area and things to do etc from 2013 below. We were back at Buena Vista Watersports twice this time as kids loved it.
