About Gill

I was born in Newcastle and now live in North Essex with my husband and our 2 dogs. Before we moved here I had a very limited knowledge of Essex and the surrounding area and was very surprised to find so much beautiful countryside, lovely villages and thatched cottages. We now have our very own thatched cottage. I am a primary school teacher who works part time in our village school.

Gill purchased this villa in 2007

Why Gill chose Davenport

We visited Florida several times when our children were young and loved the weather and the shopping! So much so we bought our villa in 2007 so we could enjoy all of these benefits every year. When looking at properties I was impressed with the area of Calabay where every property was beautifully maintained as were the gardens. It is our second home and we have furnished it as such, including an electric kettle, teapot and cosy. We love it's location, close to the Orlando attractions but far enough away to enjoy some peaceful downtime.

You can enjoy all of this, sit back with a cool drink and relax while you watch the birds and animals (or even your family). We have planted hedging along the sides of the pool area to give you a little added privacy.

Part of the pool deck is covered with lighting and a fan (the lanai) and furnished with patio table and chairs for al fresco dining. There are power sockets outside where you can plug in the griddle and cook your burgers or steak without leaving the pool party! The whole pool area is protected by insect screens.

What makes this villa unique

Our property benefits from four and a half bathrooms. The half being a cabana or a toilet out on the pool deck, so you don't have to run in and out of the villa whilst wet. In the cabana there is a cupboard with a large stock of inflatables and pool toys. There is also an outside shower next to the spa.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Just a short message to say thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home in Florida during our holiday.

We had a great time staying at the villa in July 2017

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed in July and had a great holiday. The villa is about 5 minutes from the end of highway 192 and offers easy access to the I4 as well.

The villa was clean and tidy and had everything you needed. Pool was a good size to cool off in at the end of the day. We made use of the games room some evenings as well.

There are some good restaurants around the Formosa Gardens area (Mannys Chop House, Longhorns) which are an easy 10 minute drive.

The I4 can be busy around rush hour if you are heading up to Universal but if you get ahead of the traffic it is much better.

Walmart superstore is about 5 minutes North on the

I27. We didn't go to Disney this trip but you could either take Highway 192 or the I4 and it isn't a long trip.

Instructions and communications with the Gill were fine. We would stay here again.

A excellent villa for visiting Orlando

  • 5 of 5

The villa was well equipped and very clean. Excellent position to get to all parks. Not overlooked at back. There is some building started but still will leave plenty of space still not overlooked. Had pool heated as took 7 month baby with us. It was great for her. Beds where very comfortable and was a extra bonus having bathrooms attracted to each bedroom. We enjoyed the games room and plenty of space on driveway for two cars. Have been to other villas before and this was one of the better ones. Mangement who looked after the villa was very helpful and was easy to get hold of. We went for 5 weeks, so it was a real home from home

Very nice home, great neighborhood, and wonderful week in sunny Florida.

  • 4 of 5

We travel every year to the area for a week long baseball tournament. We have stayed in a number of different homes in Calabay Parc over the years, and this one was a great house for our needs. The pool and spa looked out over a wooded area which makes for a little more privacy. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking meals if desired, and the living area is very comfortable. There was plenty of room for 5, although the twin beds are more suited for smaller children than high school baseball players. The game room was a hit for relaxing between baseball games. The house is also very convenient to the Orlando attractions (20 minutes max) and there are nice restaurants and stores nearby for all your needs.

The best thing about this house was the owner who was quick in responding to questions and very accommodating with our needs. They were very generous in allowing a late checkout time on Saturday. If you're looking for a nice place for a family vacation or time away with friends, I'd recommend this home. The rate is as reasonable as we've found as well.

Lovely Villa in a great setting within easy driving of the Parks

  • 5 of 5

Villa was as described and there was a welcome pack including tea bags, bread, milk and butter waiting for us upon arrival. The Villa was spacious and well laid out and is situated in a very nice area. We paid for Pool heating as it was the end of March but this didn't detract from cooling us down on those very hot days. Communication with the owner and the management company was simple and quick. There is a games room that can be utilised which has a full size pool table and table football game. There is also a George Foreman electric grill which can be used by the pool area. I will definitely book again. Visitors must try eating at The Cracker Barrel and Manny's Chop House which are within easy driving distance of the Villa.

Good property

  • 4 of 5

We were impressed with the property. It had everything you could think of--towels, extra bedding, pool towels, reading books, baby monitor, umbrella stroller, utensils, etc. We would stay again.

3 day stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, thoroughly enjoyed staying there. Bedrooms are very comfortable. And the games room in the garage was fantastic. Only disappointment was had to pay for 3 days pool heating when only required it for one as knew wouldn't use it after first day. Will defiantly be returning for a longer stay. All parks are within a quick drive. Thank you for the rental of a beautiful home
