Davenport House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 5.5 Baths (Sleeps 10-12)

There are so many Villas to choose from in Orlando, but what makes our Villa different from the others?

Usually the answer is location, location, location but with our home it is not only our location (only 10 minutes to Disney) but also crucially that our beautiful home is so private and not overlooked!

The best just got better! New 50 inch LED TV with HD channels, new valuables safe, new themed Angry Birds twin room in addition to the much loved Mickey Mouse room, new multi burner BBQ, all great improvements for 2014.

The very last thing you need when you arrive at your dream holiday Villa full of expectation is to have another Villa backing directly on to you with the resulting lack of privacy and noise at all hours of the day from their Pool. That is what makes our home so special. There is NO house behind you, just our huge extended Deck, beautiful Pool, huge 6 foot Spa, huge Gas BBQ with 6 burners and Searer setting and a stunning view of a Conservation Area and Lake with views of the Disney Fireworks from the Magic Kingdom every night.

Add to this that there are only 58 homes in our gated Community and you can see why The Abbey is so popular. Nothing but nothing compares to stepping from the downstairs Master on to our Deck at 7.45 a.m. to watch the sky full of Hot Air Balloons lazily drifting over our Conservation Area!! It truly has to be seen to be believed!!

When you then consider the standard of our Management Team, the incredible list of equipment such as solid Oak furniture throughout the ground floor, two King Bedrooms, one Queen Bedroom, 2 themed Twin Bedrooms one Disney, the other Angry Birds, new 50 inch LED TV with HD channels plus 6 other T.V's, Dressed Windows, Games Room with Pool Table, Air Hockey, Foosball and Table Tennis, Broadband Internet PC, Wi-Fi, Home Cinema System, Spa, Balcony, Gas BBQ, DVD Players, Valuables Safe, CCTV in Community, Ceiling Fans throughout and the fact that we so close to all attractions, then you can see why the same guests return year after year. It is possible to watch the entire Fireworks show (which starts at 10.00 p.m.) in the Magic Kingdom, walk down Main Street, USA, take the Monorail to the Car Park, take the Mickey Train to your car section, find your car and drive back to our house and be in the Spa with a Cold Beer by 11.00 p.m.....I know because I have done it!!!

Every year when we visit Orlando, our Villa gets better and better! We reinvest in it every year so that it constantly improves. We now have a feature solid Oak Sleigh Bed in the downstairs Master along with solid oak living and dining room furniture. We also have a wonderful Community clubhouse with huge community pool, Gym, Tennis Courts and even a Beach Volley Ball court. We have added Free calls to all of the U.S. and Canada. Our reason for constantly upgrading is to ensure that our guests return again and again!

So, why don't you treat yourself to one of the top 5% Villas in Orlando at a very reasonable price....we want you and your family to have the vacation of a lifetime!

'The proof of the pudding is the eating' as they say in Ireland so here are just two of the countless Testimonials that we have received both from American, Canadian and U.K. families.

Hi Ross, I think I have to say that out of the seven or eight times I've been to Orlando (benefits of working for an airline!), staying at your villa made it the most enjoyable trip! It really is a lovely place and your website shows everything but until you get there, you don't realise how great it is. The directions were perfect as well. I know the area pretty well but after a long flight, it was good to have such precise instructions. I've already recommended it to a couple of people and they are having a look at the site. Forsdick Family, Sussex, U.K.

Hi Ross, I have been meaning to write you. The house was more than your pictures say. You should really get some better photos done, they really do not show the size of the house. We walked in and stood and said WOW! Everyone was so pleased. We had a wonderful time and would love to rent the house the next time we come down. I will also tell family about your house. We truly had a great time. Happy Holidays. Nordstrom Family, Mt. Bethel, PA, USA

About Ross Barry

I am a Financial Adviser based in Dublin, Ireland married to Linda with 3 kids Gavin, Keith & Bronwen. Apart from my Holiday Home letting (hobby!!), I like to play Golf, I fly small planes and I enjoy swimming and skiing.

Ross Barry purchased this house in 2003

Why Ross Barry chose Davenport

As a family we love Orlando. The climate, attractions and the cheap flying (one of my hobbies) made it a simple decision to buy there! The Abbey is a stunning Community and out of all the choices available to me it was an easy decision with its fantastic views, huge space and the fact that it was so close to everything. We paid for a premium lot to give us that amazing view whilst also installing a Spa and Balcony all of which are items I would love to have myself if I was renting a Villa. In simple terms, I would expect a high standard if I was renting a house myself and that is the standard I give to our guests at The Abbey!

What makes this house unique

I love the fact that every morning at about 7.45 a.m. the sky over The Abbey is filled with Hot Air Balloons! In the evening, you can listen to the amazing chorus of frogs and crickets close to the lake. The whole house is so large and spacious with massive Pool Deck. The spaciousness is fabulous and the house is so well designed that when I have to leave to travel back to Ireland to my home, I am missing it before I even leave!!

Spring Break 2016

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 adults and 6 "BOYS" teenagers!! The house is wonderful, we had stayed here 2 years ago at the same time. Plenty of room, very clean and as usual we had a blast!! Ross is very a great person to deal with when booking the house and anything we need our requests were taken care of. There are golf courses near by, restaurants, a grocery store and of course the PARKS are 10 minutes away. Loved it and our vacation was relaxing. We will be back!!

Great pool and hot tub, roomy, clean home with many bathrooms!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 7 adults and we were very comfortable. Plenty of room for sleeping and relaxing. We had a minute the first night while trying to get the hot tub to heat up, emailed Ross and he emailed back promptly to tell us what we needed to do. The hot tub was very warm and the pool was as well. Travelling to Florida in January the weather can sometimes be chilly, so we paid for the heat on the hot tub and pool and are very glad we did as it was a bit chilly, especially at night. The pool and hot tub was one of our favorite things to do especially after walking around the theme parks all day. The home was in a good location for our needs. It took about 15 minutes to get to Disney, 35 minutes to get to Universal, an hour and a half to get to Cocoa Beach and about 2 1/2 hours to Tarpon Springs on the Gulf. We did see fireworks at night and hot air balloons in the morning as advertised. The home was in a gated community and we felt very safe there.

Family Christmas Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family was so pleased with our Orlando home. The home was spacious and bright. We were so pleased with all of the amenities the home had to offer. All of the bedrooms were comfortable and clean. The layout of the rooms gave our three families plenty of room for privacy and the common living spaces gave us room to all enjoy each other together. The pool was fantastic and we enjoyed watching all of the Disney fireworks on new years eve from the heated pool. The gated community was very nice and quite. We were close to all of the parks, supermarket, and restaurants yet the home and pool was very private. We will certainly use this rental again on our next trip to Orlando and will recommend it to all of our friends looking for a great place to stay will in Orlando.

Perfect location for Disney Parks, supermarket, pharmacy, and diners which were all within easy reach.We all would like to return sometime and it goes without saying this villa would be the one for us, and would recommend without question. Did it exceed our expectations? Yes and more

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation partly due to this spacious & convenient house! Our group included 7 adults and 5 grandchildren - ages 2, 4, 7, 16 & 23. The house itself was outstanding with fantastic amenities. We all enjoyed the pool daily; no traffic to get to and from Disney World, close to grocery shopping. The game room was an added bonus! It was clean (we had an opportunity to meet the housekeeping staff and they were very accommodating), up-to-date décor and much more that we ever expected. I HIGHLY recommend this house. No one wanted to leave at the end of our vacation and all exclaimed how fantastic the house/pool/game room was and want to do it again next year!
