About Sue & Mark Atkins

We're Sue and Mark from Cheshire, England; married in 1981 we have 2 wonderful grown up sons, a beautiful daughter-in-law and a gorgeous grandson, born May 2015. We've been visiting Florida since the early nineties when our boys were small and absolutely enchanted by all Disney/Florida has to offer.

Sue retired in April 2015 and we purchased the villa at the end of July 2015. We spent most of September refurbishing and upgrading the property to bring it to a very high level of comfort and luxury. We intend to maintain the villa to the highest standards, so that our guests, we, and our family, may enjoy wonderful vacations in fabulous surroundings.

Sue & Mark Atkins purchased this villa in 2015

Why Sue & Mark Atkins chose Davenport

It was always our dream to own a property close to the attractions, and, following Sue's retirement in April 2015, we finally realised our dream.

We were instantly drawn to the gorgeous Watersong community with its fabulous location, facilities and beautiful homes, most of which, as ours, have an unspoilt conservation view to the rear. Being keen fitness fans, the fitness room and local trails for walking/running were an added bonus.

The great thing about Watersong's location is its proximity to Central Florida's many attractions, whilst being far enough away to enable total peace and relaxation at the end of an often frantic day. Within a short drive there are shops, restaurants, gas, banking and anything you may require during your stay.

There is a golf course virtually next door and several more within a ten mile radius should you enjoy the sport.

Being a gated community one always feels perfectly safe and the wonderful Clubhouse, pool etc. are an added bonus.

Gulf and Atlantic beaches are easily accessible and well within day-trip distance.

What makes this villa unique

The fully integrated natural gas grill and outside kitchen are a wonderful way of enjoying the glorious Florida weather, with outdoor dining suite, atmospheric fanlights and illuminated pool/spa. 65" HD Smart TV in the family room makes movie night extra special family time. For kids, young and old, the full-size pool table, PS3, Wii and range of activities in the fully-converted, air-conditioned Games Room ensure there'll never be a dull moment! We also aim to provide a good selection of books and games for everyone to enjoy.

Fabulous stay in a gem of a villa!

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in the Watersong development on two previous occasions, my family and I were expecting a luxury villa with conservation view and great security - this villa didn't disappoint!! Beautifully clean upon arrival and all the amenities you would expect and more. After a long, hot day at the parks it's great to come back and relax in the peace and quiet of your own "home away from home" with inviting private pool and Jacuzzi spa. Ample outdoor seating and sunloungers are available with bbq grill for that perfect alfresco meal. The kids (young and old) will enjoy the games room with game consoles, gaming chair and pool table. The added bonus of the massive washing machine and tumble dryer means less packing is required!! The big advantage of this villa, and the Watersong estate as a whole, is that it is very close to the interstate I4 for easy access to all amusement/water parks rather than having to use the extremely busy and traffic light filled highway 192. Contact with Mark has been excellent and return of emails usually within minutes! I would highly recommend this villa to anyone and hope you have as good an experience as we did.

A stunning villa with everything we could have wished for.

  • 5 of 5

We are not long home from our 2 week holiday to Florida )7th may till the 21st). With my wife my mother and two young children (daughter 5 and son almost 2 ).

The villa was the perfect for us. The location was great from the airport and for all the theme parks it was under 30 minutes. The villa it's self is stunning. We found it very easy to settle in here as it has everything we would have back home and a little bit more. Every bed room is beautiful and is of a luxury standard. The living space down stairs was more than adequate fot the 5 of us. At points through our "non park days" I would find myself wondering where our kids had went to find them sitting in one of their rooms watching TV. My kids also loved the games room and the swimming pool. The space outside is beautiful and is the perfect place to relax with a beer at the end of a day round a theme park.

There were tears when we left the villa and not just from the kids.

Mark and Sue were a pleasure to deal with right from the very first contact I had with them regarding the booking. They were in contact at various times before the trip and throughout the holiday. They were very helpful and punctual with responces regarding the villa.

I would use the property again and recommend it to my friend and family.

The villa is 5 star but the service we received from Mark and Sue is also 5 star and that was the big thing for me.

Thanks again

A superb spacious, clean villa with pool close to the parks

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our stay at this excellent villa ( 06/05/17 )...and cannot recommend it enough.

Plenty of room for all of us ( 5 adults / 1 child ). 5 spacious en suite bedrooms were very very comfortable and walk in showers to refresh you for the next day . The heated pool was so inviting for everyone on our return from parks and large enough for all of us. And a barbecue!

All in all this is an excellent villa for any family looking to add that final touch to their holiday. Superb!

Oh...and should you have any concerns while staying there, you will find Mark the owner, a simple phone call away. Always very helpful and looking to enhance your stay by welcoming any feedback you may have.

You will also find the local management company very friendly and helpful to solve any problems asap so that your holiday is stress free.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we return to Orlando in the future. Highly recommended

BEAUTIFUL HOME!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 9 stayed at this beautiful Watersong property for our Disney World vacation 2017. The home was wonderful!! The bedrooms were well decorated and spacious. The living room, kitchen and dining room was open enough for all of us. The pool was absolutely magnetic, my kids couldn't stay away!! And the game room was the perfect get away for my 4 and 7 yr old. The Publix grocery store was about 15 mins away and we found a Walmart about 15 mins away. Disney world was only about 25 mins away and the nicer restaurants were about 25 to 30 mins away.

The only drawback we had in the home was being advised not to change the temperature below 72 degrees. This left us a little uncomfortable at night. We're from Houston, TX and we usually keep our home a nice cool temp of 69 degrees at night and 72 during the day. But thats just our preference.

Thanks to Mark and Sue Atkins prompt disposition our deposit was refunded back in our account in just a day or two!!

Overall, I would definitely recommend this vacation home to anyone going to Orlando.

Owner's Response: Many thanks Sherita, so glad you had a wonderful stay! I'd question your timings a little: the Publix at Reunion is 5-6 minutes away and Disney and restaurants 15-20 minutes. The aircon request is standard in Florida to prevent freezing of the units, you Texans like it chilly!

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful villa. Response time was quick when I inquired about the availability and Mark was a pleasure to work with. The villa was just as the pictures show. Well decorated, very comfortable and very clean! The pool was well heated; however, the spa never seemed to actually heat properly so we didn't get much of a chance to enjoy that. Watersong is a great community and a convenient drive from Orlando. We golfed at Providence which was just a 10 minute drive. The course was in great condition! Would highly recommend this villa.

Owner's Response: Many thanks, Jane, your very kind feedback is much appreciated. We're at the villa at the moment and the spa is like a hot bath, truly sorry if it wasn't when you were here. We'd have had it checked if you'd let us know at the time. You're very welcome to return for your next visit; it was a pleasure to deal with you.

Perfect place to stay while going to Disney

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about this property. First off, the owners were awesome to work with. You'd expect 24-48 hours response from typical owners, no these guys responded typically within the hour. Easy to work with and always trying to help make your vacation better. Even if the property wasn't so awesome, I'd rent from them again just for their customer service.

The house itself is wonderful, beautiful and big. Easy to find, close enough to Disney that you don't feel like you're driving all day, but far enough away that it's quiet and peaceful. We've stayed at other places that I was a little nervous of the area, not this place. I didn't worry even in the slightest.

The rooms are big and comfortable. The kitchen is perfect for making meals and visiting with friends. Game room occupies the kids. And then there's the pool. It's got plenty of chairs to sit and relax, outside patio table for enjoying Florida's beautiful nights and a BBQ for outside cooking. So nice to have an outside bathroom so kids don't go running through the house getting water everywhere. The spa is perfect for reading tired legs after a long day at mickey's house.

Overall it is a wonderful place that will not disappoint. We live about 1.5 hours from Orlando, anytime we do an extended Disney trip, this is the place we will be staying.
