A perfect getaway for your holiday of a lifetime awaits you at our beautiful natural lakeside villa at Reserve at Town Centre.

Location

Our place is a spacious, one storey villa located on a peaceful, private gated community at Town Centre Reserve, Davenport. It is ideally placed in the relaxing surroundings of a nature reserve. It is situated within a stones throw of a natural lake and this is your view from our private pool. Our villa is not overlooked by any other properties but you may find local nature pays you a welcome visit with humming birds and turtles to name just a couple.

The villa’s location to the local major attractions make it easy to plan your holiday as they are within easy access:

Walt Disney World Resort 10 miles.

Several championship standard golf courses.

Fishing lakes.

Excellent shopping malls and outlets to suit all tastes of retail therapy.

Universal Parks and SeaWorld.

Our Home

Our villa has been carefully and beautifully decorated to a standard we hope will exceed your expectations. With spacious living areas and bedrooms, you will be able to enjoy your stay without feeling overcrowded. The villa sleeps 6 people comfortably and benefits from air conditioning complemented with ceiling fans throughout the property for your comfort.

Living Space

The open plan design of the Kitchen/Diner and Living room allows guests to share this important space to enable you to spend your happy times together, all whilst overlooking the pool. The family room is equipped with a large TV with a DVD player and Nintendo Wii console for your entertainment. The kitchen is fitted with a selection of storage cupboards and an electric, 4 ringed cooker and overhead extractor and microwave. A large fridge freezer with water and ice dispensers is also provided. Overlooking the pool and rear views of the nature reserve is a comfortable dining area and breakfast bar where you can enjoy your early morning coffees with your group. If you are not keen on cooking then you can call out for a take-away – all calls to US/Canadian numbers are free to our guests. The Villa also has complimentary WIFI to stay in touch with your friends and family.

Sleeping Space

The villa has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms so all guests can enjoy the space and there is no queuing for bathroom time. The first master bedroom has a queen sized bed, walk-in wardrobe and en-suite that has access to the pool deck area. The second master bedroom has a queen sized bed, large wardrobe and en-suite. The twin room has a large wardrobe space and is close by to the family bathroom which is equipped with a shower and bath. There is plenty of fresh clean linen and towels available for you to use, and in the garage, there is a washing machine and dryer.

Outside Space

The 21 foot, south facing, private screened pool looks onto a nature conservation area. With no rear neighbors, it provides guests with a perfect secluded paradise to bathe and play. The huge pool deck and lanai are all screened so you are not visited by an unwelcome smaller wildlife. Our villa has solar power to heat the pool so there are no extra charges made to you for pool heating, bonus, a great saving if you are visiting in the cooler months, also good for our environment. The outside area is equipped with alfresco dining furniture, relaxer beds and pool furniture so your party can all take advantage of the fantastic Floridian climate.

Additional Information

*Starting Christmas/Holiday Season December 2017 the Villa will be seasonally decorated at no extra charge to guests, we aim to have decorations in place for December through to early January bookings, where gaps in arrivals and departures allow time for this 'creating' to take place.*

There is a gas barbecue provided free of charge. All we ask is if you use it, please ensure it is cleaned as you would expect to find it before you depart (deduction from security deposit if not cleaned). If the gas needs replacing, you can request this via our management company.

The villa has a travel cot and high chair for those guests with little ones. A welcome pack can be provided by our management company on request for a reasonable cost as well as flowers and/or champagne for something bespoke to make your stay extra special. Ask for more information. Mid-stay housekeeping on request is £50.

About Donna & Gary Shuck

We are Donna & Gary, we live in Lincolnshire, England, we love to travel and have been lucky enough to live overseas throughout our time as man and wife, the best place being Belize, it was whilst here that our love affair with Florida began. We took our children Connor, then 7 and daughter Beth, then 5 to, where else, Disney World. That was back in 2002, we then realized that we would be back! Florida, Orlando in particular is a place where you visit and leave saying 'when we come again' as opposed to 'that's one ticked off my bucket list'. These theme parks never stop evolving and are the best in the world without doubt.

We have found a place where we want to go back to time and again...........and have discovered so much more than those fabulous theme parks.

Donna & Gary Shuck purchased this villa in 2015

Why Donna & Gary Shuck chose Davenport

On the 23rd of April 2015 we viewed this Villa, along with 20 or more others over a few days and another Florida 'love affair' began, as we left we had to stop for a turtle crossing the road, I've never seen one so large.

We had found the 'one', we new it, absolutely and without a doubt it had to be ours! On the 10th July that dream became a reality............

What makes this villa unique

The Town Center Reserve is a quiet haven away from the hustle of theme parks and attractions, you will not believe you are so close to everything, tucked away in this peaceful spot, although the Disney late night fireworks can be heard and seen in the distance from the front of the villa.

By day chill out by the pool on the south facing deck, no rear neighbors, skinny dipping allowed! Views over the water of the nature reserve, reeds swaying in a little breeze.........bliss

The House was lovely and location ideal - house private and not overlooked - very well equipped - a real home from home which made our holiday even more enjoyable and loved our stay at home days! Highly recommended property.

Thank you!

Lovely gracious home!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay! The owners are fantastic! Their communication was prompt, clear, and friendly!

The condo was much nicer than the pictures portrayed! The condo was very clean and felt so welcoming. The location is very close to the Disney parks and amenities.

Thanks so much!!!

Wow

  • 5 of 5

Property even more beautiful than looks in pictures, beds super comfy and everything you could need has been thought of. Handy not having to take pool towels with us! There's a publix a Chinese and a pizza takeaway 2 minutes drive away and less than 10 minutes to the 192 and a huge choice of restaurants. Gated community very well looked after. Would recommend this villa to anybody!

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay in this property even with hurricane Irma passing by as we were there!

Property was spotless upon arrival, great location, about half an hour from the airport and universal parks, only 15 minutes to the Disney parks. Supermarket is just a couple of minutes away.

Property feels nice and safe in a lovely gated community.

Donna and Gary were very helpful throughout and always responded quickly.

Amazing villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fantastic stay in this beautiful villa. Very well equipped, everything we needed and more was supplied. House was immaculate when we arrived and very detailed instructions from owners sent before arrival.

Ideal location, about 15 mins drive from Disneyworld and plenty of local supermarkets.

Really enjoyed relaxed evenings in the villa and mornings round the pool - a lovely haven from all the fun of theme parks.

Will definitely return.

The property is very well appointed a great place

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfectly located in a gated community. approximately 15-20 minutes via the i4 motorway from all Disney and Universal locations.

It is a very quiet, spacious and comfortable place to be. Much local wildlife to be seen from the patio/pool area. Air con throughout which is most welcome. off road parking. Close to local shops and amenities as well as bars and restaurants a very short drive or taxi ride away at Champions gate.

I/we would thoroughly recommend this property to families as it has all you require and also for those looking for a quiet break away from the world if you do so wish.

Thankyou to Donna and Gary for allowing us to stay at this property again, we loved it again :)
