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. Our beautiful granddaughter arrived in June 2017. 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, pool bathroom, atmospheric fanlight 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.

Beautiful villa in a perfect location for the holiday of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic holiday! We have just spent two fantastic weeks at Mark and Sue's beautiful home. This was the best holiday of our lives and the first time our children, eight and ten, have been to the USA.This was a holiday of a lifetime visiting Disney and it was perfect.

The villa is so beautiful, spacious, comfortable and modern, it was sweltering outside but the air-con and spa pool were perfect for keeping us all cool and relaxed after hectic days in the parks, there were four adults and four kids from two families and we had enough space and privacy when needed. The property feels very safe and secure on a gated community and is located at the edge of a little wooded area and not overlooked, we had a couple of visits from some beatiful large birds wandering around the lawn at the back.

All the facilities are spot on and everything looks like it's brand new, it felt like we had just moved into a showhome! There were more than enough supplied clean towels for our party of eight to use when in and around the pool, the bedding is spotless and the pool was immaculate, our kids spent at least four hours a day splashing about and playing with the inflatables supplied, you literally don't have to bring anything but swimwear which is so helpfull with flights and case weights!

Local area is really quiet and rural, but there are a couple of gas stations nearby and a small shopping complex where there is a great supermarket - Publix, Pappa Johns Pizza, McDonalds, a bank and other facilities you may need.

We spoke with Mark and Sue a couple of times via email and facebook and they gave us great advice and tips on Disney tickets, eating out, shopping, higway tolls, car hire, driving, alligator spotting, beaches… we felt like we knew Orlando inside out before we went which was so helpful as there is so much to do... and we did so much due to this knowledge!

We are already planning our return to Florida and we hope we can book again with Mark and Sue and stay at their wonderful property, three weeks next time though!

Thank you

The Marsh and Pagan families.

Perfect villa in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd visit to Florida and this is the best villa we have stayed in. The villa is a perfect holiday home with a large living/cooking/dining communal area with a view of the pool area through patio doors.

The toilet and shower in the pool area is a real bonus, only villa we have stayed in with this facility ,and there are plenty of chairs to sit out in. The outside space is private, with trees at the back, we even had a visit from a couple of deer.

The bedrooms are spacious with very comfortable beds. They are well laid out so everyone gets some privacy.

The WiFi is very fast and reliable throughout the whole property.

The air conditioning is very effective, even on the hottest days. upstairs has a separate control so the whole villa is comfortable. The games room was well used and is also air conditioned, but the tumble dryer is in the same room so it does get warmer if it is in use.

Watersong resort is quiet and well maintained, with 24 hour guards and a good gym in the clubhouse. It is only 10 minutes to shops and the Interstate, which then gives easy access to the whole of the area. We especially liked the Championsgate area, but there are also some great areas if you turn left out of the resort and use the new link road to US 27 highway. We ate at the Ovation Bistro and Bar on this road.

Any problems were sorted very quickly by the owners and property management company.

We had a fantastic time in this villa and would definitely come back if we visited Florida again.

Fantastic 3 week stay - perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 weeks and had a fabulous time. The location was perfect for us as it was only approx. 20 minutes to the Disney parks. There was a small shopping complex 10 minutes away which had a supermarket, McDonalds and a few other convenient stores. We liked to drive to Champions Gate for the restaurants which was really straight forward to get to, we particularly like Chilli's (happy hour on beers was great!)

The villa itself was a home from home, the kids loved the pool. There was plenty of space for the 7 of us. The beds were so comfortable and we enjoyed relaxing here after hectic days / nights at the parks. We also felt very safe in the gated community and the security of the villa was also good.

The owners were available for any questions and called / emailed to check everything was ok whilst we were there.

My family throughly enjoyed our time in this Villa. The house had more than enough room for our family of 6. Our kids enjoyed the pool and game room and we're looking forward to booking this villa again in the near future.

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

The Johnstone
