About the Owner
About Christine and Patrick hicks
Hi We are Patrick and Christine, We first went to Florida when our children were small and fell in love with it . I am a Disney fanatic or so my family tell me. Patrick just loves the weather. We bought our lovely house in 2004 after renting it,We have been renting it out since 2005 but every year we update it.as we want our guests to love it as much as we do. We now have grandchildren and they also love to visit our Florida home. We love renting the house to 1st time visitors as I enjoy telling them of all the places to go to and give them lots of tips to make their visit more enjoyable. We like to visit ourselves 4 times a year and that helps us with checking that everything is ok with the house but we have an excellent management team over there. Enjoy your Holiday.
Christine and Patrick hicks purchased this in 2004
Why Christine and Patrick hicks chose Davenport
We bought our house after renting it in2004 we love the location as it is not overlooked and we enjoy watching the sunsets with a glass of wine after a busy day at the parks.It is located on a residential estate so is lovely and quiet. but is only a short distance from the parks ,shops,golf etc. we have a lovely pool area so is ideal if you want to relax we also have a covered lanai so you can sit and eat or drink with out getting sunburnt which is handy with young children.
What makes this unique
The location and pool area is a great advantage with our house. It is also decorated in cream colours which we change and update all the time.All our visitors say how peaseful it is and we have lots of repeat bookings. We also charge the same all year round and do not put up the price at peak times which could be one of the reasons we are fully booked at popular times.

Excellent Home Away From Home Stay
We thought the layout was perfect for us (large kitchen, large, master bath, also) - we would stay here again, great value, the owners/mgmt. were super easy to get along with/contact - we had a minor problem and they fixed immediately & pleasantly - easy to get to the theme parks, pool was very clean & neighborhood seemed totally safe, we felt safe!!! I wish all rentals were this easy, breezy - stay here!!!!
Home away from Home :)
I have to say that the Owners of this wonderful Villa are the most trustworthy and professional. I rented this Villa for my honeymoon over 11 years ago and wanted to come back with my new family. I contacted the Owners and they were so happy and wanted to make sure all my dreams came true. They accommodated all my request and were prompt with all information. The Home is beautiful and the kids loved the screened in pool area to the point they wanted to stay home instead of going to Disney :). Highly recommended and one of the best homes to stay for vacation.
Thank you again

Lovely villa in quiet area
We have had a lovely holiday as always in Orlando. The villa was lovely but spoilt buy a few problems which we feel let this lovely villa down. That we would happily stay again again. The main problem that was worse for us was having to wait for a New fridge Freezer to be delivered and then wait another 24hrs before we could use it properly. So we could not do our food shopping until Sunday day 3 of our holiday. It mad it harder as it is not always possible to take our disabled daughter out to eat. We are so glad we didnt go straight to our favourite place to shop Publix like we usually do as we would of wasted food. May be a email to warn us before we left to warn us would of been better an a note on the fridge when we arrived. That is the only reason we have gave 3 Stars as web have said a lovely villa in quiet area but at least 1/2 hr away from parks not 15 mins
An excellent stay!
The villa was exactly as listed. It was well-positioned for all the major attractions, especially Disneyworld, and all main routes, so very easy to get around. The property was very clean and tidy and very well-stocked with equipment, linens, towels etc. - everything we needed to make our stay confortable. The lovely pool and pool furniture was an added bonus. It was very easy to deal with the owners and they were very helpful. All in all a lovely villa and we wouldn't hesitate to go back.

A perfect base for exploring central Florida and in particular the Disney and Universal parks, which even in heavy traffic were no more than 20-25 minutes away. A choice of supermarkets and dining within a short drive. The villa was spotlessly clean on our arrival, and Christine was unfailingly helpful both before, during and after our stay. We found after we had moved down to the Gulf Coast that our 11 year old had left a favourite toy behind, and Christine arranged for it to be safely left for us to collect on our way back over to the airport. At the end of a hectic day at the parks the pool was perfect - the kids loved it! I would definitely recommend this property for those wanting to be away from the bright lights of Orlando but still within striking distance. Thanks Christine and Patrick!
A fabulous villa with a fabulous pool, and a daily sunset one could die for. We spent three weeks there at the end of which I asked my seven-year-old granddaughter what she enjoyed most about her holiday in Florida, expecting her to say Disney World, Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, Epcot Centre, or something like that. She replied, "The pool". Beat that Mr Disney! The owners, Christine and Patrick Hicks, are wonderful people and it was a joy arranging our holiday with them. The villa is about fifteen minutes drive from Disney World and ideally situated in a nice residential area. A good supermarket nearby, Publix, and some nice restaurants. This was our first visit to this villa and we will definitely be going again.
