Why J Scofield chose Davenport

I fell in love with Florida in 1980 and wanted to spend more time in the Sunshine State, so always went back to the same hotel on the 192 for holidays, progressed to buying a timeshare at the Orange Lake Country Club and then when I had saved up enough, I jumped at the chance to buy the plot and have the villa built in 2000. Having looked at 3 other locations, I chose Bridgewater Crossing because of the close community feel and friendliness - it so refreshing coming away from the hustle and bustle of the theme parks to a place where it is so quiet and peaceful.

property was very good

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in Florida for the last 10 years this is the first we have stayed in we're there were no cleaning materials which if used were replenished. Also there were no pool towels, We did notice the sink plugs were missing and no information regarding the waste disposal . This I understand was down to the management company. We found it unusual to suggest we leave a tip for the cleaners as we assumed the cost of cleaning was included . The villa was clean well appointed in a good position for our needs Mrs Scofield was a pleasure to deal with.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback, this is both disturbing and invaluable. Unfortunately, the management company was sold to another firm and it appears they have different ways of working. I will address all of the matters with the management company directly to rectify the points you have raised.

The property was as described and worked well for our family.

  • 4 of 5

All of our communication with Julie was prompt and clearly spelled out. There was some difficulty interpreting costs since we were dealing in US dollars. Checkin and arrival was clearly spelled out and went smoothly. The place was very spacious and all of us felt as though we had plenty of room. The neighborhood was very quiet and seemed safe. The master suite bedroom and bath worked well for us as a couple and the bed was comfortable. The adults in the double room felt the bed was uncomfortable. Upon arrival, we were disappointed in a few things. The pool was not heated or being heated and we had paid for it. We contacted Julie and she handled it right away by getting us a refund.

We had stayed in VRBO homes before and had been accustomed to basic supplies such as toilet paper, dish soap, paper towels, and maybe even salt and pepper and a few condiments. This VRBO didn't have these items, therefore, we had to purchase them. In communicating with the Management company was clear in that they do not provide these items and were satisfied with the minimal toilet paper left behind (2 partial roles) for 6 people. The other recommendation might be for more towels as we had to wash during the week and there were two extra blankets for 4 beds (it was very chilly the week we stayed). Julie refunded our security deposit right away. Overall, more than worth the $$. We would stay again, but be clear about what the management company would take care of.

Clean, comfortable and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely stay here again. This house is very clean and comfortable. But most of all Julie, the owner, is absolutely lovely. She responded to all of our needs promptly and to our satisfaction. We can't wait to return on our next visit to Florida.

Ideal family villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a great all round villa.

We stayed for 2 weeks, 2 adults and 2 children (age 5 and 7). Also we had 2 extra people for a few days.

From Orlando airport to the villa was about 40 minutes.

Key pick up is from a secure unmanned key safe very nearby which means you can arrive any time.

The kids loved the pool and the water was warm enough to use without the heating.

The villa is in a nice residential area with friendly neighbours.

The air con in the villa worked well and we didn't have any issues generally.

There is a safe available but this is at an extra charge, we didn't use it. I am good at finding hiding places for valuables.

The villa was very comfortable at a reasonable price.

You would need a car, as far as I could see there wasn't much public transport. We had a car and found it easy to get to all the places most families will want to go.

Disney is about 20 minutes away.

The owner was very willing to make sure everything was ok and answered any questions quickly.

I would certainly use this villa again and recommend to friends and family.

Thank you Julie.
