Superb Lake View Pool Villa. Games Rm, Wi-Fi + Disney 10 Mins!

Bedrooms 5
Half Baths1
Space 3,000 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 5 - 7 nights


About the property

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!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Ross,

Counting down the days till we are at our (your) winter home. As soon as we leave our home we know it's nothing but relaxation and fun with no surprises at your villas. Homes away from home. Thanks, Linda

Wonderful Vacation House!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house!! Plenty of space for 3 separate families! The pool and patio was awesome, we couldn't get the kids out of it!! Enclosed patio kept out the bugs and did give a view of the fireworks at night! Location to the Disney parks was great! About 15-20 minutes to each one, super easy! We couldn't have asked for better people to communicate with, they always responded quickly and were very helpful! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone!!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Ross, we had a great time at your place. Pool temp and spa were perfect.

We lucked out on a pretty good stretch of weather. For a short while we had 11 people and 2 dogs and sleeping arrangement worked just fine. Tips for future tenants. Found Walmart (on hwy 27) had better prices than Publix in Champions Gate. They also have cheaper liquor prices than in store in Champions gate.

Highly recommend this place for family holiday.

We have been vacationing with our family in Florida since they've been little. Now they are adults and have kids of there own, this by far was the best vacation ever!!! Ross is such a great owner to work with!!

His house is beautiful, way more than my expectations. It had everything we needed, the grandkids didn't want to get out of the pool,except to beat grandpa at a couple games of foos ball or pool! Seriously, no one even wanted to visit the amusement parks. These 2 weeks were so relaxing and it was fun to reconnect with my adult children, since they all have they're own families and busy lives. I recommend this for every family!! There was so much room it never felt crowded and there was 11of us! Just to let you know how much we enjoyed ourselves, 1week after returning home we have already re-booked with Ross for next year in another one of his gorgeous houses. Oh this year isn't going to go fast enough. Take the time to re-connect with your kids!!! One of those weeks we spent just my husband and I, relaxing!!!

Perfect Family Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and organized. It was very kid friendly, even for my little ones. We were able to move efficiently to get 8 people out of the house early in the morning because it is laid out well.

Our favorite part was being able to relax by the pool and grilling out. I would definitely stay here again

Spacious home great for families

  • 4 of 5

Nice rental home with space for lots of family. A few problems but they were dealt with satisfactory. View of the firework from the pool every night was a bonus. Air conditioning unit could use a bit of work. All in all the house was the icing on the cake of our Disney vacation!

Probably, the best large villa we have rented so far!

  • 5 of 5

We usually travel to Florida twice a year renting in Davenport and Kississime areas. We were very happy with the condition overall and size of this place. No place is perfect so here are the only negatives. Small television in master bedroom, old washer and dryer but working. Wife said could use a few larger pots, she cooked for seven. No major negatives, just some room for improvements. 5 stars and we have booked again...
