About the property

Luxury 4 Bed Home With 3 1/2 Baths, Lakeside, private pool, no rear neighbours.

Welcome to our Florida rental home near Disney, Orlando.

Our detached, two storey house has 4 bedrooms, sleeping 8, with 3 1/2 baths, a games room and large private pool overlooking a lake. The master bedroom is located on the ground floor with en-suite bath and access to the pool deck. The other 3 bedrooms are upstairs with the family bathroom. Our great games room has a Pool Table, Air Hockey and PS2 with cable TV and seating area.

There is a pool shower room accessed from the pool deck which is great for showering after a swim or sunbathing. The large, west facing pool has an extensive sun deck with plenty of loungers, and gets the sun from 9.30am till sunset all year round! Tall hedges surround the sides of the pool cage and the lake at the back ensures privacy.

We supply FREE wi-fi internet access together with a colour printer, all you need to bring is your laptop or I Pad. Free domestic phone calls.

Our luxury rental home is located in the small cul-de-sac development of Ashley Manor with just 24 executive homes, less than 10 minutes from Disney World, Orlando.

There are two shopping plazas with supermarket and restaurants and a selection of shops, banks and championship golf courses all within 5 minutes drive. If you don't want to drive to the shops pick up a few essentials from the mini-mart which is a 2 minute walk away.

Ashley Manor is well positioned for easy access to Sea World and Universal Studios via the Interstate 4, and the route to Disney avoids all the queues along the 192. The new Legoland Park is now open and located to the south.

Florida is not just about Disney, there are fabulous State Parks which we recommend visiting. Our local one is Lake Louisa State Park with huge lake and nature walks. In the winter drive to Blue Springs State Park to see the Manatee who swim up the rivers to seek out the warm spring waters or rent a canoe and paddle along the river at Wekiva State Park which is one hour north of Ashley Manor.

We provide quality family accommodation and have local managing agents who take care of our home and our guests. Our house is protected by a monitored home security alarm system.

About Andrea Bush

I live with my husband Clive in north Essex, England. I am an artist and enjoy painting local landscape and wildlife both in the UK and abroad.

Andrea Bush purchased this villa in 2004

Why Andrea Bush chose Davenport

After many wonderful holidays in Florida with our young daughters we eventually decided this was where we wanted to buy a home as a base for our family and also to rent to other holidaymakers.

Having rented villas in the past we knew what features were important to us so looked for these in our own home. One of the deciding factors in the purchase was the large, sunny, private pool area and garden. The lake at the bottom of the garden provides extra privacy, so no close rear neighbours.

The house was also in a small established development with no building works nearby, so provides a haven after a hectic day at the theme parks. The proximity to the parks was of course an important consideration and at only 10 minutes drive from Disney and 15 minutes from Sea World we felt this was the perfect location.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa has high cathedral ceilings in the main living areas with huge windows which allow light to flood in and create a cool, airy space. Outside the pool deck has been extended so we get the sun from early morning until sunset all year round.

I love to take my easel out on the deck and paint scenes from our visits, particularly the State Parks. You will find lots of my artwork on the walls of the villa and on my website: www.andreathomasart.co.uk

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this property! It was absolutely amazing! The home is exactly as shown in the photos! We loved everything about this property. It was clean - spacious - well appointed and in a very quiet private neighborhood.

I traveled with my husband, my 12 year old daughter, my 2-1/2 year old son and my mother. We came down to watch my oldest son play baseball in his college spring break games. We had more room than we needed and found the home very comfortable as everyone had their own personal space! In fact - we loved the property so much that we may never be able to stay in another hotel ever again!

I would like to extend a massive Thank You to the owner - Andrea, and to the property managers Marie and Ronny. Due to winter storm Stella dumping 36" of snow back at home, our original flight was canceled last minute and rescheduled for the following day. I was able to email Andrea and also call Marie and Ronny to ask if there was any chance we could extend our rental for another day. Both got back to me promptly and we were able to add an extra night which I appreciated so very much! After such a nice week I really couldn't bear the thought of having to stay overnight in a hotel!

If we are ever in the area again - we will be sure to check and see if this lovely property is available!

Davenport Villa

  • 5 of 5

The house is 25 minutes away from International Drive in Orlando and 1 hour from Busch Gardens. Great location, quiet. The house is well laid out, roomy, and comfortable. I felt like we were staying at a good friends house, not just a rental. The art work and photos gave it a lot more personal feel. There is a grocery store almost right around the corner and the managers were great on helping us out. Looking forward to staying at the Villa next time we go to Florida.

Thanks so much, Andrea. Your home was just perfect for our family holiday. There's so much space for guests! We could really spread out and relax. If we are back to Orlando and Disney, we will be in touch!

Lovely well decorated and maintained villa giving easy access to the main amenities in Florida such as Disney and Kissimmee etc. Great pool area (south facing) and in a quiet cul de sac. Highly recommended!

Fabulous holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fab holiday on Ashley Manor. The villa is located right on a lake and you can watch the wildlife right from the pool. The pool was large and private with plenty of space and seating all around - perfect for lazy days. The rest of the villa was clean and immaculately presented with everything we needed to cook in if we wanted to. The games room was also a big plus for keeping the boys entertained! The location is perfect with easy access to Disney and other attractions and lots of great restaurants nearby. I can thoroughly recommend this place and hope to come back soon!

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended

Lakeside, luxury 4 bed rental home in Ashley Manor, Orlando.

Ashley Manor is a small residential development of 24 executive villas in a cul de sac with no passing traffic.

Our home backs onto a conservation lake which attracts birds and wildlife as well as providing extra privacy when relaxing on our extensive pool deck. Tall hedges planted each side of the pool screen ensure added privacy.

Ashley Manor is in the area of Davenport which is less than 10 minutes from Disney World, Orlando.

The Interstate 4 is minutes away and provides easy access to Sea World (about 15 minutes) and Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure (about 25 minutes). Ashley Manor is on the right side of Orlando for driving down to the newly opened Legoland.

Orlando International Airport is approx. 40 minutes.

If you have time we recommend a visit to the coast, choose from the Atlantic beaches around 60 minutes away or the peaceful Gulf shores around 90 minutes drive.

The Florida State Parks are well worth a visit and provide an excellent opportunity to see natural Florida and spot wildlife. Our nearest Park is Lake Louisa State Park on Highway 27.

Golfers will enjoy our local course at Champions Gate which is a prestigious championship course designed by Greg Norman. There is also another great course at Providence which is just a few minutes away.
