About Gary Lund

We are the Lunds and we live in Nottingham, England. We love our house in Florida and try and spend as much time as we can here. A great place to have fun and there is no place else like it. Our dreams came true when we bought this house. We take great pride in keeping our house spotless and our property manager Susan looks after it for us with great care.

Gary Lund purchased this villa in 2007

Why Gary Lund chose Davenport

After holidaying in Florida for many years, we decided we wanted to have a place near Disney that we could call our own, allowing us to spend as much time in the area as possible. We plan to spend more and more time here as we get older but for now, we get over as much as we can. We chose Watersong because it seemed nicer than all of the other resorts and we haven't been disappointed. Being a conservation resort it has lots of space and the houses aren't crammed in side by side. It only takes 15 minutes to get to Disney and everything is so convenient.

What makes this villa unique

We spend as much time as we can in the deck and pool area. We upgraded our pool to the biggest we could get and it also looks out on to conservation so it really is a special place. All of the bedrooms have TVs and the beds are very comfy. A large flatscreen TV provides for our entertainment needs and the kitchen is fitted with everything you need. Wi-Fi means everyone can keep in touch with the outside world - but we rarely do!

Spacious house with a great pool/hot tub

  • 4 of 5

Family of 5 stayed for 8 days. Very spacious house with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. Gated and quiet neighborhood, however homes are very close to each other. Game room was a plus. There were a few maintenance issues that were present upon arrival/use that we had to address while we were there but maintenance came out the day they were called and were able to fix 2 of the 4 issues right away. The home was nicely outfitted but the cleaning could have been a little better especially of the tile floors. Pool heat cost extra but definitely worth it. The hot tub and pool are VERY nice with a safety fence but bring your own pool toys, rafts, etc. Relatively private except the neighbors pools on either side, but wooded behind the house. The pool is cleaned on Fridays and they came on one of the days we were at the house and swimming so we had to get out and wait for them to get done so it would be nice to know when the cleaners were coming, but they were pretty fast, efficient and pleasant. We had some trouble with the homes wifi signal and the channels on the TVs as well as keeping the house at a comfortable temperature. Overall though a very good rental home close to, but far enough away from, Orlando and only an hour to either coast. We would certainly reccomend this rental.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just inconsistent heat issues with the pool (timer). Very roomy and comfortable with ample supplies/equipment except it would have been good to know ahead of time villla not equipped with dish soap, glass cleaner, extra garbage bags, Kleenex, paper towels or toilet paper. These are staples I would have expected. Care and attention and prompt friendly customer service replies from owner was excellent and appreciated.

Perfect Accommodation to suit a Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

First time using a Villa instead of Hotel, Apartments etc and can advise to all that this was by far the best way and this Villa was perfect to suit my family of 5.

Very secure site with gated entry made the family feel at ease during the stay.

Villa has plenty space and well maintained throughout. Had to use the Maintenance Team to repair a fault with the downstairs Air Con but this was resolved quickly.

The Pool area was great to use after a long day at the Parks to wine down for the evening.

Received a great Introduction from Gary, covering directions to and from the Villa to get to all park areas.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this Villas to anyone and would certainly use this again in the future.

Many thanks Gary for letting my family stay at your premises.

Yours Sincerely

Scott & Wendy Mitchell

A Perfect Holiday Base

  • 5 of 5

Another fantastic holiday enjoyed in Florida by our two families, perfectly underpinned by utilising this wonderful Villa as our base. Whilst we are frequent visitors to Orlando area this was our first stay at Watersong, a very well maintained and quiet securely ‘gated’ community.

The directions provided by Gary were very easy to follow and once arrived we found the Villa to be surprisingly spacious in design, complemented by the noticeable cleanliness throughout. Although we had 9 in our party, there was never once a feeling of being short of personal space during our stay.

The lovely pool area kept our children occupied when we weren’t visiting the various Disney parks, which for reference are an easy 25 minute drive away. Universal is a little further away at approximately 40 minutes and Busch Gardens sits just over an hour away.

Our only dealing with the Property Management Company proved excellent, as they replaced a tired battery in a noisy smoke alarm within hours of being called.

The professional communication and interaction with Gary made the whole booking process an absolute dream - he even helped us celebrate a marriage milestone with surprise box of chocolates and bottle of wine upon arrival.

In short, we would have no hesitation in highly recommend this Villa to any potential visitors and I feel quite safe in saying we will be revisiting again ourselves at some point in the not too distant future.

Thanks again Gary for the very kind use of your Villa and helping to make our stay one to remember.

Regards

The Gill and Sloan Families
