About Jeanette & Mark Gibbard

We are Mark & Jeanette, British ex pats living in Connecticut, USA.

These are our children, born 2006 - full of life ;-) they love to visit our home in Florida and swim in the pool and visit the theme parks and try all the restaurants!

Jeanette & Mark Gibbard purchased this villa in 2006

Why Jeanette & Mark Gibbard chose Davenport

We love the space, the pool and the privacy at the back of the house - we love the gated community, it's so peaceful but so close to all that Orlando has to offer!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at this property. We knew what to expect and once again our vacation was wonderful. We especially liked the option to heat the pool which we used daily. There was plenty to do in the area besides the theme parks. Hope to return again next year.

Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5

The Villa is really beautiful, very spacious and felt really homely - I have two small children and they loved the themed rooms. We used the pool alot , and it was really good for all of us. The location is really good - i was worried about this but once we got our bearings it only took us 20 minutes to get to the Disney parks and a Wallmart is only a few minutes away.

Very nice house

  • 4 of 5

We chose to stay in this villa due to its location and the fact it had an outside toilet next to the pool. Might seem an odd statement but it saved having to dry the kids off each time they needed out the pool, much nicer than I was expecting too. The pool area over looks some grasslands which was nice, we saw what i believe was a northern harrier, black racing snake, a rather ugly spider and lots of lizards to eat the mossies. Pool fully enclosed with net so all the wildlife was on the outside thank goodness. Plenty of loungers as well as small blow up toys for the kids which we also added to. The house is fully equipped with large washing machine and dryer with some small essentials provided by the owner such as washing powder, dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid which was a nice touch. Bedrooms all as expected, with master bed particularly comfy with walk in shower and separate his and her sinks. There is also a ceiling fan in the master bedroom too. There were a couple of prams (Stroller's) in the garage, but we bought 2 new Minnie mouse one's for my twin nieces which have also been left for the next guests. Coal barbecue is also available. Living accommodation is a good size for a 5 bedroom house. Other games were provided as per the owner's description, but there were also some dvd's if you get fed up watching the weather channel or the basketball! From start to finish from booking to deciding to extend our stay by a few hours all went smoothly. I would definitely consider staying at Mark and Jeannette's house again and would recommend it to others.

Excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a holiday in Orlando staying in this villa. It is within easy distance to Disney World, Universal Studios, Animal Kingdom, etc. Jasmine Villa is very spacious, it is in a lovely location looking over a conservation area; we spent many an evening watching a hawk looking for prey. I would recommend this villa to anyone looking for an excellent standard of accommodation with comfortable beds and easy access to all activities and restaurants.

Cannot recommend this villa enough. Everything you need and more. Have stayed a few times on Highgate Park and this is by far one of the best villas we have stayed in.

Not over looked, south facing pool. Nice and quiet.

Great villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the villa. The villa was clean and in good condition.

There was plenty of restaurants and shopping opportunities within a 15 minute drive. Distance to the attraction parks is about 30-40 minutes.

We had an issue with the cable TV after a big thunderstorm but the property management company fixed it right away.

We will definitely consider this villa when we come back to Orlando.

From the Owner

We love the space, the pool and the privacy at the back of the house - we love the gated community, it's so peaceful but so close to all that Orlando has to offer!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Orlando International at 30 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : US27 at 2 Kilometres Nearest Golf : US27 at 5 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : I4 at 6 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : US27 at 2 Kilometres Car: recommended

Highgate Park is located 1.5 miles south of the 192 on Highway 27, just 30/35 mins by car from Orlando International airport. It is a quiet suburb that is safe for children but is central enough for easy access to all the attractions including restaurants and entertainment. Our home is 15 minutes from Walt Disney World and just an hour from Tampa and the Gulf Coast and the Space Coast.

Florida is the Sunshine state with temperatures ranging from 70F to 95F. Orlando's main attraction is Disney and all the associated theme parks. In addition Orlando offers great shopping and top class golfing. It is also a convenient base for visiting Kennedy Space Centre or the Gulf coast.

Other attractions in Florida include the Everglades, Miami and the Florida Keys.
