Villa overview - owner's description

Private, large family villa in gated community of Highgate park in Davenport. Private screened pool for your comfort. Minutes from Disney world. Close to all amenities and golf courses.

As soon as we saw the show home for this villa we knew it would be a fabulous place to have a holiday.This beautiful 4 bed/3 bath villa has been built and furnished to the highest standards on the prestigious gated community of Highgate Park. It has a large family room with lounge, kitchen and dining areas which make it a very sociable place. The sectional sofa means that there is seating for all your party to watch the wide screen HDTV - with a huge channel line up including the sports from the US and the UK. This room leads out to the covered lanai and private pool with spa that has patio furniture, sunloungers and pool toys.This has been extended out from the pool so that it is one of the few pools that you can sit all around. Extra loungers and tables mean even more relaxing in the sun. We can guarantee that if the sun shines you will have a place to sunbathe all day from sunrise to sunset - but also shaded areas for those who need more protection like our youngest guests. The whole area is planted around to provide colour, interest and privacy. The pool is screened for your comfort. The king bedoom with king-size bed has walk in closet and a huge bathroom with corner bath, shower and 2 sinks. It also has direct access to the pool so imagine waking up to the view of the pool glistening in the sunlight. The queen size bedroom is adjacent to a full bathroom and might as well be en-suite.The two twin bedrooms share a bathroom between them and even that is divided so someone can be using the sink while someone else is in the bath. You can all get ready at the same time to get to the theme parks early to miss the queues. The fully fitted and equipped kitchen has everything you need including the ice maker for drinks and a dishwasher. You can dine in the family room or out by the pool -with the lights on it is magical -and no bugs thanks to the screen. A gas barbeque is provided which cooks great steaks, chops and burgers - and if you need to get a new gas bottle we will credit you with the cost.

As a bonus we have installed a keypad lock and on payment of your balance we will give you instructions how to get to the villa and the codes you need. No more traipsing to a management company in totally the opposite direction with tired, dirty, cranky kids (or adults) Its straight to your villa for a cool drink and a dip in the pool. No worries if your flight is delayed-the villa is always open to you.The villa is ideally placed on Highway 27 to have access to everything that Orlando has to offer and the proximity of the major roads ensure you can also explore the rest of the state as well. The all important Disney World is only minutes away but all the rest of the attractions are under half an hour and even the Space and Gulf coasts are only an hours drive away. There are loads of restaurants to choose from to suit every taste and budget and new ones open every time we go. Whether it is the well known chains, steak, chinese, italian, seafood or the famous all you can eat buffets -everyone will find something to enjoy. Remember portions are huge so you may not need a starter (appetiser). Most restaurants are very child friendly and if its a special date tell them and dont be surprised to find everyone knows when they serenade you with a song and a cake. Look around at information centres for discount vouchers - most restaurants offer them, so why not do what the Americans do and save even more. We personally have a satellite navigation system which saves loads of arguments and we found lots of really good short cuts into the theme parks which avoid the traffic. It also allows you to explore - click on the show map option and wander . Well worth the extra if you can afford it. Cheap ones are available from the local Walmart - if you return you can use it again or E-Bay it and make your money back - or even check for one from a previous visitor.

Shop til you drop.
All the shopping malls are within half an hour so you can buy anything from designer clothes to supermarket brands.There are a number of outlet stores so grab a bargain. Most malls offer discount voucher books to visitors free of charge and if you only use one or two coupons you can save even more. Remember prices are so keen you may need another suitcase to take it all home. 5 mins to the north of the villa on Highway 27 is a massive Walmart superstore that sells everything! To the south even closer is a Publix supermarket with a little bit of French flair. Both have ethnic isles so you can get the things you miss from home. There are also restaurants to choose from and some takeaways (who also deliver if youve had a hard day round the theme parks). There is also a liquor store and a nail bar amongst other shops. The shopping center Posner Park is now open at the junction of Highway 27 and the Interstate 4 - lots of stores including some very famous names and a multiplex cinema - see the latest releases before your friends. We try and check out all the options for shopping and dining so if you have a question please ask.

Thanks Lindsey. Glad that you loved our home as much as we do. Hope you enjoyed your complimentary late check out. You are welcome back any time.

From Surbiton, United Kingdom Apr 2013

An excellent property that has clearly been furnished to a very high standard.
The pool area is slightly larger than others giving you the opportunity to sit in the sun for longer if you wish to. Ample sun beds, chairs, tables.
The wifi worked perfectly and you could get wifi around the pool area too.
The kitchen was very well equipped and was clean.
The parks were approx 20 mins drive away so perfect, and the nearest supermarket was only 5 mins drive away.
Any queries I had before the trip were answered by the owner very quickly and she was extremely obliging. The management company responded quickly to resolve one minor issue that we had whist there.
Only one very constructive criticism - the electric BBQ did not get very hot and was quite slow at cooking etc requiring food to be cooked in the oven first. Although we fully appreciate the convenience of an electric BBQ - not requiring gas bottle changes etc, it was not perfect for the avid BBQ chef!! Maybe a gas BBQ could be considered?

Overall this was a lovely villa and we had a great holiday. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend to anyone, and I would certainly return there myself.

We can arrange for hire of a gas barbeque but this would be additional cost to guests. In that case it has to be used outside our pool screen too. We have not had a complaint before - so will check out if it needs replacing. It has been well used.

Great access to Disney, but far enough away to be peaceful. Loved the pool. House decorated to a good standard and the managing agents we good.

would recommend to anyone

it to our friends.

From Angus, Canada Aug 2009

The house was amazing, comfortable, and clean! We were very impressed! Teenagers enjoyed the games room, and we all enjoyed the pool and hot tub...a little too hot... the pool... but can be expected for the month of August. It was so great to come home after a long and busy day at the Disney Parks and relax and unwind! We definitely hope to rent again and see some other sites in Florida. We will also highly recommend this house to all of our friends! Thanks.

Normally people would say that a pool is too cool - which we can do something about - with pool heat - but at this time of the year it up to mother nature. Glad to see that a you enjoyed your stay though and thank you for your kind words.Jean

"By Don & Barb Gainer (Marathon Ontario Canada) The major problem with this place is "HAVING TO LEAVE".For a family or people needing space this is the spot.Super clean, furnishings are all new and every thing you need is there except the food.There is a Wal-mart the size of 4 football fields(that has all you need) just minutes away.Try staying in a motel with 2 small children and no washer or dryer? The washer and dryer were a life saver.Upon arrival the handyman was there checking to make sure everything was ok and he noticed we had 2 small children and asked if a crib would be useful. My daughter-in-law said it would and 10 minutes later he shows up with a BRAND NEW crib.Although it was cool at night the heated pool meant swim when you like and we did.The park is gated but I felt very safe in the area gated or not. "Don has also told me that he is very happy to talk to prospective guests if they want to ask him personally for his opinion.

We thought that this villa would be nice from what we saw on the website but when we got there it was beautiful. Absolutely wonderful. We have not stopped talking about it. The pool was fantastic - especially first thing in the morning before breakfast and after the theme parks. The solar cover made sure the water was warm and relaxing. I can not wait to return and take my grand-daughter with me - we already have our Disney tickets. What a fantastic holiday.John and Ann from Norfolk, England

We had a fab time in Florida, the house is absolutely fantastic and i don't think there is anything that you couod do to make it a nicer place , its great as it is.I would have no hesitaiton in recommending your villa to anyone and would certainly use it again myself.Sue from England

We had a lovely time. The villa was very nice and suited us perfectly!. Thanks again for a terrific holiday!. We had a wonderful time and would definately rent again with you if we go back. I'll recommend you to anyone we know!!Corinna from Ontario

We had a great trip. The house worked out great for us because each of the kids had his her/her bedroom, plus we saved a lot cooking for ourselves instead of having to eat out all the time. The kids liked having the pool and got a lot of use out of it.Kirk from Maryland

Private Owner From Wisbech, United Kingdom Member since Sep 2005

We have owned this home for 10 years and have had many happy guests - some of whom have returned more than once. I pride myself on giving a very personal service to everyone and can answer most questions. Each time we go out to Florida we take what people call an "owners vacation" so we make sure our home is right up to our high standards, replace or improve, paint, plant. We also check out the latest additions to the entertainment in Florida and often have time to find out places that most first timers would not know about. We love our home and we hope you do too.
