About Evelyn & Ian Fenne

We live in Dorset, on the south coast of England with our pet dog Charlie. Our son now lives in London after studying American Theatre at Rose Bruford but would prefer to spend all his time at Disney! We love it and hope you will too!

Evelyn & Ian Fenne purchased this villa in 2005

Why Evelyn & Ian Fenne chose Davenport

We originally purchased our villa as we had spent nearly 10 years visiting Florida before eventually deciding we wanted somewhere of our own we could call our 'home away from home'. Over the past 12 years we have spent many happy holidays in Florida.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is situated in a perfect location - near enough to Disney and far enough away from the crowds. It is on a beautiful golf course with shops/restaurants and bars close by.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us stay at your lovely villa. Everything was superb. We ate at the golf club 3 times, it was good value. Myself and husband had two very relaxing weeks even although there were a lot of thunder storms it was still warm enough to sit out. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time and were able to relax. Shame about the weather but at least it was warm! The clubhouse is one of our favourite places to eat as well. Hope to see you back again some time in the future.

Ideal for Family visiting Disney

  • 5 of 5

The property is well maintained and was very clean and tidy. The Southern Dunes Gated Golf Complex is safe and very clean and kept in an immaculate condition. The Club House is friendly and serves good food, which is reasonably priced. A Supermarket store and other shops and diners are close by. The trip into Disneyworld takes about 25 minutes.

Eight of us stayed in the property and we found it ideal as a holiday location. Everything that we needed including towels and linen were on site. Having our own pool was a big plus for us because we all,especially the children in our party, really like swimming.

A perfect home from home

  • 5 of 5

We visited Orlando in December 2016 and wanted to visit all the parks. We weren't bothered about staying in a Disney or Universal hotel and were really happy to self cater.

This villa is fantastic, with it's own private pool, and is set in a lovely gated community. It's spacious, clean and has everything you need, and more. I loved that there were plenty of towels, lots of wardrobe space, a washing machine, which is so useful when travelling with children, plus a huge bonus is the Walmart supermarket right next door which made self catering even easier! There is also a Denny's less than a mile away for that all important breakfast!

It's a VERY easy 20 minute drive to the Disney parks from the villa, and about 30 minutes to Universal/Seaworld etc. so if you don't mind not being in the thick of the Orlando action then this will suit you perfectly!

The check-in process was seamless with details being sent to us before our arrival and everything was as it said it would on arrival.

We would highly recommend this villa and would definitely stay there again. Many thanks for helping to making our holiday so fantastic! Just what we needed.
