About Amy Hamm

I was born in Yorkshire and grew up mostly in Wales and the Isle of Man. I currently work as a children's doctor working in a rural location. I have a young family and both of these give me a good reason to be up to date with the latest family films. I'm an animal lover as well with a passion for the diverse Floridian wildlife particularly marine such as manatees & sea turtles. I regularly travel to Florida to the villa to relax & have family time with multiple generations. Young and old can really have fun together there really is something for everyone!

Amy Hamm purchased this villa in 2012

Why Amy Hamm chose Davenport

Back in 2012 my mother and I decided to bite the bullet and buy a place out in Florida. We had been visiting yearly and felt we wanted a place that we could feel more stable in compared to hotels. After visiting lots of villas and finding that many didn't have the size pool and lanai that we wanted, others were to far out we found the perfect place. Highgate was beautiful right from the start, well maintained and the gates made us feel we were safe there with the children. The pool and lanai were a good size and the villa was spacious enough for all of us to not get under each others feet. It was located perfectly close to the parks easy access to the I4 close enough to the action but distant enough to get away from it all and relax. The local amenities were great to a play park, the tennis court as well as close to publix, Walmart nearby, gas stations, ATM, pharmacy, chinese and a fish & chip shop… What more could you ask for? We fell in love with the house and every visit since we've just grown more attached. We buy DVDs and books when we are out there and often leave them for our guests to enjoy when they visit. We just hope you enjoy your time there as much as we do.

What makes this villa unique

The perfect location:

Close to the action while distant enough to allow proper relaxation with great local amenities for those stay at home and chill days when you need to rest your weary feet by the pool.

Child friendly:

A haven for adults but we travel as a family with young children so know how important stuff to make life easier with the kids is. A quality travel cot so you have less to carry, a high chair, and children's crockery just make things that little bit easier. I like the flat TVs with built in DVD players in the kids rooms so I know what they are watching late at night. We leave a selection of DVDs for different ages for you to enjoy during your stay. The play park just tops it all off making it a great place to stay with kids.

For adults:

The master bathroom is the perfect place to pamper yourself, its fabulously luxurious heart shaped double bath is made to be filled with warm bubbly water and enjoyed. The pool has a light for night time swimming or sitting on the edge with a beer cooling your wary feet after the long days at the parks. The area isn't filled with noise from cars passing either.

The property is located within the safe gated community of Highgate park which has a community facilities such as tennis courts and a children's play park.

We are 15 minutes from Disney World and five minutes away from the huge array of restaurants that line the sides of the 192. We are 30 minutes from the Seaworld parks that are located off International drive and 40 minutes from the Universal parks. Busch Gardens is about a 70 minute drive.

However its not all about the theme parks clearwater and Daytona both have amazing beaches less than an hour and a half drive from the house. Not to mention Kennedy Space centre around 90 minutes away.

There are airboat rides nearby as well as helicopter tours and hot air balloon rides that you could try out. Ripley's believe it or not is located on international drive if you fancy finding out a few freaky facts.

My favourite activity if you want a real treat is to head over to clearwater aquarium. This tiny facility houses one of Florida's most amazing dolphins called Winter. She is the only dolphin so far to have survived a tail amputation and she has a prosthetic tail! Winter is the star of the movie Dolphin tale which is a great heart warming family movie. Clearwater also has the option to go out on a boat looking for wild dolphins and its a real treat to see them in their natural habitat. Remember though you won't be getting to close due to Florida's laws to protect these beautiful mammals.

On my to do list is to head out to Tampa and go swimming with manatees. These amazing animals are such docile creatures and I would love to go and get closer to these gentle giants.

One of my favourite restaurants is the outback steakhouse located off the 192 behind the Harley motorcycle shop. I've never had a bad meal there! My favourite place for breakfast is the iHop off the 192. They are speedy and very popular with friendly staff every time I have visited.

In the case of a medical emergency there is an urgent care centre located about a seven minute drive away on the 192 and a good 24 hour paediatric facility in Kissimee about 20 minutes drive away.

Florida really does have something for everyone and Highgate is located perfectly to allow entertainment within quick reach and the option for calm relaxation.

Happy holidays!

Amy

Great villa in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

I thought it was actually much bigger than it looked from the photo's so was very impressed.

It had everything we were looking for and I don't think anyone would be disappointed.

Pool heating is optional but I'm personally glad we opted for it.

Super easy location to access all major attractions. Just off the US-27 highway and near to the US-194 & I-4.

Endless choice of restaurants on the US-192 and with Publix & Wal-Mart plenty of choice for those who would want to eat back at the villa.

Stayed for 2 weeks. Great villa in a nice gated community. Very close to Disney, with a Walmart only 5 minutes drive away. The villa was clean and comfortable. Lovely pool area. Fast WiFi which is important to people these days. Highly recommend staying here.

Great place to enjoy the Florida experience

  • 4 of 5

We spent 9 nights here in early November 2016 while visiting the Disney parks. There is plenty of space to spread out and the house more than accommodated the 6 of us (us, 2 kids, and grandparents); 8 people would be very comfortable here. It is in a quiet gated neighborhood between 15 and 20 minutes from the Disney parks. The pool is not huge, but was more than adequate for us. Shopping, including Publix (grocery), Walmart, Target, and the obligatory cheesy tourist stores are within 5 - 10 minutes away.

There were plenty of towels, which isn't always the case. There were a few minor glitches with the door code, blinds in one room, and the air conditioner, but the property manager Jenny ensured they were all resolved very quickly. I would recommend this property.

Great villa in a great Location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great 2 weeks staying in the Villa.

The villa was just as described. It was clean and tidy and was a great size, there were only 4 of us but the Villa would have easily fitted 6-8.

Pool was fantastic, clean and a good size and plenty of room outside for sunbathing.

Games room in the Garage was an added bonus although we didn't use it much due tot he heat and no air-con in the Garage (obviously).

Location was great, less than a mile down Highway 27 and only 20 minutes from Disney.

We would definitely rent this villa again if we return to Florida
