About Audra Savory

Audra Savory lives in the South of England with her husband David. In 2010, she began to administer this web site on behalf of her parents in law, who are the owners of the property.

From Oxfordshire in England, they have always loved Florida as a holiday destination and desired to someday own their own property there.

They purchased this house in 2005 as a second home. The pool was added in 2006 and in 2010 they started to rent the property out as a holiday rental.

The property is situated in an area that is far enough away from the main attractions and yet still close enough to get to them all within 30 minutes.

The neighbourhood is friendly and safe and each neighbour looks out for the other.Peace and tranquillity in a desirable neighbourhood, a well kept home and garden with a good home management company in Florida are all the attributes desired in their second home and investment property.

It is a home that they love and enjoy going back to every year.

Audra Savory purchased this villa in 2005

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had what we needed and were ideally placed for the places we wanted to go to.

certainly that area would be my first choice to stay at again,near enough to be involved but far enough to be away from!We liked what we saw of the area,although were only there a week before koving on.

Pool idea size for us my children being that bit older.

Would look at again if we return to America.

thank you

The villa was perfect in every way, a home from home.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the villa including the pool. Exceptionally equipped for all of the family's needs. The booking and all correspondence with the owner was a breeze and hassle free. I would definitely award five stars but the company that runs the villa in America (sun palm villas) would not extend the 10:00 am checkout to accommodate our late flight. Overall thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Hi David and Julia, We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the house. We are always happy to accommodate late check outs where possible, but only where they is no back to back booking, which there is in your case as another guest is arriving at 4pm. The management company need 5/6 hours to do the turn around and sanitise before the next guests arrive, which includes washing and drying the linen. Late check outs are normally arranged with me in advance so that alternative arrangements can be made if late check out is not possible. We hope that your holiday to Florida and stay at the house will still be an amazing memory for you both and we thank you again for booking with us, Regards, Audra.

Fantastic house, location and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Quite simply, we do not want to go home. We are a family of 5 and the house was perfect for us.

If you are looking for a house with that home like feeling, in a good location and with everything you need to have a fantastic holiday, book it! We definitely will again.

P.S. we stayed without pool heat (End of May/start of June) and it definitely was not needed.

Great stay !

Owner's Response: Hi Kenn, Thank you for your review. I'm please you enjoyed the house once again. As a returning guest, you would have had priority over other bookings. Your normal dates were free up until late February. Last year you had already booked for the following year by that time so when I hadn't received a booking request from you I assumed you didn't want the house for a third time and accepted the booking from the other guest. Please accept my apologies. I would have loved to have accommodated you and your wife again. Regards, Audra. ☹️

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our first holiday to America as a family, this villa made it. Great location as it was a quiet residential area but near to anything we needed and close enough to Disney! Thanks so much for having us, would book again in a heartbeat!

Fantastic 👍

  • 5 of 5

Great relaxing out the way all you need property .

We had a 2 week stay In the villa had all we needed lovely pool cool air inside and did not need for anything .. parks within 20 minutes easy drive even for us first timers...... shops 15 mins drive ... all in all just perfect !

If one small teeny negative ... some bottled water and milk would have been a godsend as we did not arrive until after 10pm and were too tired to go back out until morning but we managed 😜

Thanks to all involved in maintaining and running this lovely property would definitely return x

Wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived back in Ireland after a fabulous stay in Doral Woods. The house was immaculately clean and so comfortable. It really did feel like a home away from home. The pool was great, the children spent hours in there every day. Up to this trip we always preferred to stay all inclusive but we have completely changed our views. Our first trip to Florida and Doral woods will not be our last. Audra was great for advise and assistance when we had the threat of Hurricane Matthew so thank you so much. We will certainly be back! The Green family.
