About Mrs Dympna Tuck

I live in the Southern part of the UK with my husband and teenage son. We thoroughly enjoy Florida, and work hard during the year, so that we can enjoy our trips out to the villa.

Why Mrs Dympna Tuck chose Davenport

We bought this property as it was the perfect size for both us and our renters. We fell in love with the view and tranquility from the first moment we viewed it.

What makes this villa unique

We love the view, peacefulness, and extra large deck. The villa is a fantastic size for a single family or two families holidaying together.

Beautiful well equipped stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is a true home from home. It is a lovely, very comfortable place to relax after a busy day in the parks. The villa is just 5 minutes drive from the I4 which is really handy for getting around.

The description does not give this villa justice and the information and communication from Dympna the owner made it a very relaxing and straightforward trip from the airport after a long flight.

Location wise the villa is set in a very quiet area which is very relaxing, looking out on the lake with the crane birds coming up for a look every now and then!! There is a great supermarket 5 minutes drive away and also a really good Chinese take away. In the same area there are some nice places to eat with a good Chillies and a Millers ale house which opened whilst we were there and was very good. We also ate in a restaurant called Ovation which was really nice and jus 5 minutes away.

The location is south of the main attractions but near the I4 so it took around 30 minutes to Universal which is the furthest north and 20 minutes to Sea World.

We really enjoyed our stay here and would not hesitate to recommend this villa.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We booked this villa for 7 of us as a base for our first trip to the USA and Disney. The villa was clean, well equipped and very spacious, it was perfect for our stay. It made a great base for exploring as it was within easy reach of all of the attractions we wanted to see. The area was well kept and secluded with plenty of restaurant's and shops nearby, ideal for relaxing by the pool after a busy day. We contacted the owner on a couple of occasions before we flew out with general questions and they were quick to respond and very helpful and friendly. We loved the holiday, loved the villa and if we were going again would have no hesitation is returning to this villa or recommending it to anyone looking for a well located comfortable base. As with most places in the USA a car is a must have.

Perfect location - perfect accomodation!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very welcoming villa in a good location close to the parks and the major routes. Everything you need, except food of course, is provided for your stay including a good supply of books, games and videos. A large pool and deck overlooking a conservation area provides enough space for all to enjoy the sun and swimming. The property was nice and clean and well managed. We would recommend it to anyone wanting to rent in the area.

Clean, private lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for 5 years during the winter months and have truly enjoyed it here. It is in a great location with all amenities close by. The management company is very good and keeps the property in very good condition. Disney, movie theatre, shopping, highways are all close. We hope to have an opportunity to visit there again in the future.

Outstanding Villa...couldn't ask for better!

  • 5 of 5

Very difficult to summarise how fabulous this villa is in a paragraph!

Great location, close to all of the theme parks and shopping destinations. The villa itself is exactly as described and if anything, even better than the photos.

It is very spacious and extremely clean, very tastefully decorated and the owners have literally thought of everything you could possibly need or want.

The pool is also a great size, clean and we took full advantage of the spacious surrounding area for dining beside the pool.

We have stayed in numerous villas in the surrounding area and none of them compare at all.

We will definitely return to this villa for future holidays in Orlando.
