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.

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

A wonderful villa to relax in on our holiday. After 3 weeks here it feels like home and we don't want to leave! The view from the pool is amazing, we saw 2 gators, vultures and many other amazing creatures.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home base for our vacation. The home was clean, thoughtfully stocked, comfortable, and lovely.

Beyond that, the homeowner's were wonderful to work with. Quick to reply kindly with any question I had and went above my expectations to help me out with a situation when our travel plans had to change a few weeks before we arrived.

The neighborhood was quiet and safe. I would wholeheartedly recommend booking this property.

You could not ask for a better location!

  • 4 of 5

The villa was beautiful, inside and out. The pool area with the great view was spectacular, we even had visits from the local wildlife, the sandhill cranes, every morning. Just about 10 minutes from Disney. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this villa so much. The property was exceptionally clean and we really appreciated having extras such as a baby highchair and pool towels included with our stay as it made travelling with a young family much easier.

The property was very handy for Disney and we discovered a fabulous British-run fish and chip shop nearby (The Fish and Chip Shop at 8281 Champions Gate Blvd)!

The owners are very easy to get hold of and extremely helpful. Would definitely recommend :)

The perfect place to stay near Orlando

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at Reserve Retreat we felt at home. The management team had prepared the villa well, lights were switched on, it was warm and everything was spotlessly clean. The villa is tastefully decorated and furnished.

As we arrived in the evening we were intrigued to find out what we would see outside in the morning and we were pleasantly surprised. Beyond the sparkling swimming pool and the comfortable sun beds and dining furniture in the lanai was a grassed area and a lake which attracts a variety of wildlife. A sign on the grass advises residents not to feed the alligators, thankfully we didn't see any! We did see a variety of birds and we came to appreciate what a wonderfully peaceful place this was. We enjoyed the outside space, sitting there for breakfast and lunch and sunbathing by the pool, although the pool temperature was refreshingly cool.

As a group of three friends taking a short break to celebrate a milestone birthday the villa suited us perfectly. Each of us having our own bedroom and bathroom was a real treat. The beds were very comfortable and I loved the spacious master bedroom with the walk in wardrobe and en suite.

Information about the villa and the local area was available, we liked shopping at the Publix supermarket which is just a few minutes drive away. If the weather is bad and you need to stay indoors there are videos, DVDs, sound systems and television all available to use.

If you are looking for a peaceful place to chill out but close to all the Orlando attractions then Reserve Retreat comes very highly recommended, we wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you to Donna and Gary for making their super home available for us to enjoy.

Perfectly located villa

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly located villa for all parks and minutes from a supermarket and restaurants. The villa was a home from home and spotlessly clean on arrival. The owners couldn't have been more helpful pre and post visit. We will certainly recommend to family and friends.
