About Alison Ward

We are in our mid 40's and have owned our property for 10 years. We love Florida, the parks, the attractions and the wildlife.

We are both working - husband Paul is a painter & decorator and I work for a Coffee company.

With 3 grown boys, 2 dogs and 3 cheeky Miniature Shetlands.

Why Alison Ward chose Davenport

So why this house? ......we were looking for a property for a future investment.

We looked at hundreds of properties but this one was different. Inside was spacious with a home from home feeling and outside peaceful and safe.

The area was great, well established and the view behind the house was stunning - breathtaking!

Can't describe it - Still feel the same today.

We loved it!

What makes this house unique

The house is not overlooked from the back and there is a very large space between the side properties.

Peaceful after those long days at the parks but close enough to everything you need.

Stunning outlook for those evenings round the pool with a glass of wine after a long day at the parks, when the kids are in bed (intercomm system included).

You'll love it.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Alison's villa for three weeks and had a fantastic time. I was concerned about the previous review so I phoned Alison up and she put my mind at rest. I had no reason to be worried because the villa as everything you will need while you are on your holiday and is in a lovely location ideal for Disney. My daughter really enjoyed the pool as we all did. This villa is ideal for a family wanting to visit Disney or just to chill? We will definitely be returning to Alison's villa in the future.

Gorgeous property

  • 5 of 5

I am absolutely socked and gobsmacked by the previous review on this property and feel I need to respond to some of these issues. My family and I have holidayed here for the last 8 years and have had first class and a professional experience each time. Alison and Paul, the owners, are the most helpful and accommodating people I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Once we make the initial booking, everything was fully explained to us and all questions answered fully. Nothing was ever too much trouble and Alison has always responded to my emails. The house itself is a slightly older property which is reflected in the price, but doesn't lack any of the charm. The house is maintained by management company Contempo who are always on hand if needed. I've called them on a couple of occasions and the issue was always dealt with promptly. The house has always been clean, immaculate, and welcoming on each of our visits and we have never experienced otherwise. The previous review states the photos are old??? I would like to state that this is not the case and the photos resemble the house in its current state so I am slightly confused at this comment. It's location is lovely and situated where you can see some of the Florida wildlife which is lovely if you are lucky enough to see it. Overall, I love it here and have already booked for next year!

Never Again !!!!

Review #16329903 “Private Pool Overlooking Conservation Wood and Lake”

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

we booked direct with Alison the owner, on arrival house was filthy bedding not changed food etc in fridge we arrived after midnight we then contacted contempo on an emergancy number who were very helpful but told us that the owner hadn't informed them we were coming they put us up in another villa for the night. I emailed alison the owner that same night to inform her of the situation. from then until today i have sent numerious emails to her but have never received a reply she hasn't returned our refundable deposit nor acknowledged us in any way after being home for 5 weeks. Beware photos are old and do not resemble the property and broadband speed is less than 1.01MBPS we also paid for pool heat which wasn't turned on for our arrival we have not been refunded for this either. so all in all we have been to floriday every year since 1994 twice a year since 2004 and this is the worst owner we have came across it seams that once you have paid she doesn't want to know.

Owner's Response: In response to your review I am Upset and horrified to hear that you arrived and the house hadn't been cleaned - I can only assume that you arrived before the cleaners or that the management company did not have a record of your arrival. I can only sincerely apologise. I haven't received a single email from yourself via my BT email address or any notification from our management company alerting us to a problem which is very unusual for them and from The review only says 1 night in another villa so I hope the remainder of your stay was without issue. The deposit was posted 10/11/16 and I am always happy to BACs payments. All previous guests and the one directly after this booking were perfectly happy - the photos were all taken as early as last month and oldest one 18 months It is an older property which I try to reflect in the price but we pride ourselves on maintaining the house. I don't know about the wifi I had no problem when I visited recently but I will certainly ask the management company to look into it. I would like to apologise again and hope this is not how future guests feel we deal with bookings. Please feel free to contact us via the owners direct email.

Lovely homely villa

  • 5 of 5

Lovely clean and well furnished house. Really comfortable and very quiet area.

Loved the pool - we did have a small issue with the pool and after a call to the managing agents it was resolved within half an hour of our call with 2 follow ups, brilliant service.

Well equipped kitchen but limited storage for food. Bedrooms were a good size, especially the master bedroom.

Easy access to all main attractions. Would definately stay here again and recommend to friends.

Feel at home it's so comfortable

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing house , everything is there that anyone could need and more. We based ourselves out of here to do all the major parks and spent most evenings here sitting by the pool and listening to the frog chorus ,whist our son played darts or pool in the games area, after 2 and a half weeks I didn't want to leave it was so home from home and comfortable.

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We used this house as a base for a week's trip to Orlando. It was very comfortable and had all the amenities that you need. The swimming pool was a real hit with the children. All the Orlando attractions were a short car ride away, as were supermarkets and restaurants. The house is situated in an extremely quiet neighbourhood and is not overlooked.
